This is a discussion on EDD May 2014 (maybe) within the Year 2014 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; mine is all in one capsule... I eat till I deliver... everyday I drink one glass of milk... but I ...
mine is all in one capsule... I eat till I deliver... everyday I drink one glass of milk... but I think need to cut down coz mu breast are starting to ache...
I drink coconut almost everyday... lol... I need to stop stimulating breastmilk... sometimes I see got leakage on my bra... lol
Charchia! same! I keep tossing around in bed coz no.2 is too active.. Even middle of the night. Sigh
hmm i never listen to any music .. Probably what my baby hears is my no.1 talking, screaming, i scolding, talking to her or just lotsa talking lol... Sigh no time .. How to bother about all these hahahaha...
Hmm i never drink much at night but still go toilet.. Cannot hold .. Coz there very strained.. Hmm but i always get dry mouth so i sip some water and go back to bed.. End up go toilet again.. Sighhhh
meltie I only play music when I go to sleep and keep it playing throughout the night... I switch it off when I wake up...
I deink normal fresh milk only... I dont like powdered milk... have breastmilk coz I had no.1 only 10 months ago, didn't fully stop... anyway my chinese doctor keep telling me to massage my breast everyday to stimulate supply and prevent blockage... so that when time to breastfeed is easier and it really works...
Actually it is not advisable to massage breast unless want early labour.
As massaging of breast will stimulate contractions, that is what i heard.
So if doing prenatal massage, tummy and breast is a NO-NO.
I think it defers for everyone... Coz massaging of the breast didn't make any difference for me... I have been massaging my breast since the second trimester... but then each session is very short... It helps to relieve the aches and clogs in the breast to prepare for breastfeeding... But i know massaging of the tummy is a nono... The only time i massage my tummy was during first pregnancy, the chinese doctor help me to move the baby's head downwards as it was starting to move away when reaching edd, so that i will have a easy delivery...
Wa.. thread is moving fast.. I never drink milk at all cos I will puke.. that's y my gynae gave me calcium.. im still taking fish oil and multivit, never heard that fish oil will interfere with labour .. as for coconut.. im drinking once a wk since 4 wks ago.. im now 37 wks.. I tink as long as you dont drink too much, it should not induce labour .. so e key is everything in moderation.. my friend who recently delivered said her baby is covered in heat rash at birth.. the pediatrician said she ate too heaty food during pregnancy.. so I a bit scared.. thinking of drinking coconut twice a wk now.. hahaha..
My girl is extremely sticky now too.. smetimes really buay tahan.. I tried to let her cry it out but I cant bear.. after a few seconds I jiu give in .. cry too much like not good for her also.. later she will have a tough time sleeping at night.. worse still keep waking up cos of nightmares.. I hope things will get better once #2 is out.. though I tink things will prob just get worse cos there's now 2 babies fighting for attention..
Oh my i ate lots of fast food for this pregnancy and so far only drank coconut for once :x
Hmm.. dont know .. e pediatrician just said heaty food.. but my friend said she ate a lot of durian, keropok and choco chips .. so she told me better drink more coconut..Originally Posted by shanice99:866420
I did not hav much cravings for fast food.. but I do eat once on a while ..
I am always craving for fast food. I think i better drink more coconut now.
oh fast food is so terribly good - been eating it but not too much. but i crave for marks and spencer biscuits now. always eat more than my stomach can take then suffer after that cos the tummy has become smaller - greedy me.
Hello All May Mummies..
I have been trying to catch up on the discussion Last week got admitted to Mt A as gynae says that tummy feels tight.. then put me on drip.. for 3 days of hospitalisation.. Then after that gave me a patch to stick everyday now during hospitalisation leave.. to prevent contractions...Sigh.. My edd is also mid may.. As my job requires me to walk fast and walk alot, she said these may cause pre term labour.. I am also praying hard that I will only give birth in Mid May.. I also did the strep B test during my 34 weeks appt last week.. hope everything okay.. tomorrow is another appt.. Hope I can go back to work soon.. Sigh.. As a first time mummy, I have always thought that walking alot is good for easy labour.. Now I am afraid.. No longer walking so fast already.. Does any experienced mummies here face the same problem before too? Thank you for sharing
Hi maybellinesee! Hmm.. actualli e prenatal class I went too long ago says try not to walk too much in the initial weeks.. it is good to walk and exercise but not too much as it will lead to preterm labour.. and we are onli encouraged to walk 'like a dog' after 36wks.. I tink that prob explains y you are having contractions so early.. dont push yourself too hard.. I read an article that says wen we are in third trimester, we should push ourselves to walk more.. on a scale of 1 to 10 which 10 being most strenuous, aim for a 6, not 10 though.. Im now at 37wks.. gynae also advise I walk more but dont overexert myself..Originally Posted by mrsmaybellinesee:866467
Ahh.. thx Lingz12... I am now 35 weeks plus... I am quite fearful of having to stay in hospital again hence now I walk really slowly... even slower than old woman... hate the hospital stay.. but thanks alot for yoir advise.. haha I eat fast food too.. dont know why the cravings also..
Hey mrsmaybellinese! hope you're feeling better now! Do take some rest and walk slowly.. Hmm i used to be in sales job and walk alot, travel alot .. very fast paced.. I carried things and worked during my 1st pregnancy.. Hmm walking alot helped in a faster delivery.. But maybe you exerted abit more.. Do take a breather..
Wah i bought a coconut frm market but yet to chop open and drink! hubby no time! maybe tml morning ask him to cut! Hmm my friend told me not to drink at night .. Too cooling?? I'm feeling so heaty.. Sweat n sweat, got pimple pop out .. Heat rashes.. Sighhh... I need to cool off! What else can i eat? I dont't take fastfood.. Hmm hubby n i kind of quitted it before i had my #1... On off got take some fries.. We prefer to go for normal cooked food instead.. Healthier...
Hmm i can't wait for my gynae appt tml! Wanna see how baby has progressed! keep having the feeling that baby might come early when all is not prepared! Argh... one part of me wanna get over and done with so that i'm not so restricted by my tummy.. Another part of me feels like i wanna spend more time w #1 and want to do more with her before we get stuck for next few mths.. Sighh mixed feelings... I also guilty that i never talk to #2 inside me.. never rested for her and almost always too busy to remember i got her inside me lol.. Super guilty ..
