icic.. thanks! will bring originals
I have already start to pack my hospital bag. Left a few more items and i think i'm done.
Btw did any mummies experience lower tummy cramp?
i have been experiencing that since i came back from my appointment. It hurts more when i stood up from sitting position.
Wah this thread is moving fast! hospital bag? I have not't started! Been so busy handling my 18mth old.. She has been turning into a little brat for the past week! I guess its the onset of terrible 2s! Sighh fuss and fuss like mad.. refuse to listen.. Now i'm doing time out with her... Everyday driving me up the wall.. She's been having diarrhea and vomitting due to her itchy hands... sighh handling her alone in the day is really getting on my nerves.. I'm becoming a screaming mum... :/
Alot of things undone or not done yet.. Hubby is busy with projects and exams that are coming up.. Dresser n cot still not assembled.. baby clothes not washed, my CL fwded me herbs to buy, shld be buying in May bah.. I wore simple slippers at home during confinement last time.. Wonder if i shld go get them again this time... Not sure if it mattered.. Hmm my biggest worry is how to settle my no.1 whenni go give birth.. Its alot of care and attention.. Cooking, feeding, coaxing to eat, putting to sleep.... my mum doesn't seem reliable to come over.... My hubby is busy , and not sure if he can have the time... Sigh ... Oh ya we have not gotten a mattress for my girl to sleep on the floor.. Everything seems presssing... My girl has been waking up in he middle of the night to fuss n cry, kick me like mad.. I'n aching all over.. Just this morning she was awake frm 4-6am.. And woke up at 7.30am to fuss again... I'm super drained.. Already waking up 1-2hrs to pee through the night.. Now with her kicking n throwing tantrums and keeping me up... I dont't think i xan get the rest before giving birth... :/
My tummy seems like its stretching alot.. Previous pregnancy i did not have my belly button pop out! Now its super stretched... And this little baby is kicking non stop.. I have groin and thigh pain.. Its all burning down there... Guess i stand too long and never sit enough.. But with this toddler, what to do? :/
Hi Melancholy, thanks for your info! I've also started to pack my hospital bag too since i was free at home yesterday..hehe, sometimes i do get those 'suan suan' kind of feeling at the lower tummy area..and these days, my tummy feels hard from time to time and gynae says its the braxton hicks..makes me so uncomfortable at times
Hi meltie, jia you! it's not easy having to manage your toddler with the big tummy..do take care ya! =)
I have not packed my hospital bag yet.. haha.. tink I better get my lazy bum up this weekend.. my mum is helping to wash baby clothes and my dad and hubby finally assembled the dresser last weekend.. I tink now e most headache part is what to do with my girl wen I go deliver.. I dont know how! My mum says at most bring to hospital with us and she will come pick my girl up at the hospital if I need to deliver in e middle of the night.. but my mum needs to work in the morning and she stays in jurong, how is she gg to send my girl to the nanny at sengkang? Hmm..
My mother in law told me to start on coconut this week.. im 35 wks oredi.. she says 1 coconut a wk .. I also took 1 coconut a wk for my previous pregnancy.. just drink .. never eat e meat..
Meltie.. stay strong.. I totally understand how you feel cos my girl is e same.. drives me up e wall.. and now that im less mobile, it's even more tough trying to chase and catch her before she touches e electric sockets, attempts to jump down from e sofa, play with the switches or step into the drains wen we are out.. sighz.. smetimes I feel if I would be a better mummy to her if I were not preggie.. but then.. too late now.. didi is coming out.. hopefully then I have more energy to chase after her and didi too.. a bit wishful thinking but one can hope right? Haha..
These days I ache so much at the groin.. super pain.. dont know issit cos baby is slowly moving down and rubbing against my pelvic bone near e groin.. sighz.. smetimes standing hurts.. and smetimes wen im lying on my side, it hurts too.. to e extent that I dont dare move.. and not to forget, e dreadful leg cramps.. sighz.. on e one hand I hope baby dont come out so soon.. on e other hand im really getting tired of being preggie.. I cant believe I actualli told my bestie I miss being preggie (before I discovered I was preggie for a 2nd time).. I mus n mad then.. hahaha..
I'm having thigh pain too. Below feels so heavy and painful
wow, your have already pack your bag so early? I have not packed mine yet. EDD mid-may. think next week try to pack abit. cos everytime when reach hm after work, feels so tired and wanted to sleep around 10pm everyday. also where your buy the disposable panties? Watson or guardian better? buy what size? L or XL? cos cannot open and see and size rite? I bought the washable panties fr kiddy palace cos got vouchers, then I think during confinement period, cant touch or wash the panties, so decide to buy the disposable panties as back up as well loh..bought most of the stuff already.. think if free, will go the 18-20 massive baby fair at expo.
Hi shanice99, I bought the cotton ones from watsons.. XL size.. but also dont't know can wear or not!! I bought 8 packets some more.. skarli cannot wear then waste my $$ -_-'' I also dont't know watsons or guardian better but usually when I go travel, I would buy watsons.. so just stick with it.. just worried I won't be able to fit in only haha..
Oh I bought those cotton disposable undies from kiddy palace.. free size I tink.. I grab like 6 packs, shld b able to last for entire confinement period.. haha..
I am struck by sudden headache... I dont usually get headache ao it's kind of unbearable n uncomfortable for me. Went home half way from work... sma my boss but he did not reply, must be damm unhappy cause 2nd mc for this week... sigh...
almost everyday i got this slower than heartbeat kind of rhythm on my left side of my stomach, it last around 10-15mins,do you have this? also do you experience your baby sudden big movement at times? or trembling feeling at your stomach area?
I also dont know how to rest... turn left or right also uncomfortable... breast starting to ache, dizzy spell starting to keep coming, tailbone extremely pain, butt and leg muscle aching...
shanice99, actually you can slowly pack your hospital bag since your EDD is mid-May. Mine is anytime 2 weeks from now and I also havent pack. haha! I think I better pack this weekend!
For my 2nd pregnancy, I'm actually feeling excited when nearing EDD. Before I was like, no feeling towards this 2nd pregnancy. Felt so bad towards #2.
What slower than heartbeat rhythm? I dont experience it. Only felt braxton hicks. Now I recall that I dont feel my baby hiccups! Or maybe I wasnt attentive enough. I could feel it for #1.
Hi shanice99, i get those too..its like a pulse but it's slower than our own heartbeat right?..forgot to ask gynae what is it..hehe..
Do any of you have 'clicking' sounds from the tummy when your baby moves?..i've been having that since i am in the 3rd trimester, its like cracking of our knuckles kind of sound from the tummy and i dont feel any pain. Asked gynae about it and she says some people will experience that but they are't really what's the cause for the sound. But definitely not fracturing of baby's bones or anything harmful..i've asked my friends & colleagues and none of them have experienced this before..i so lucky, 1st pregnancy already experienced this..haha.. =p
