How did the induction go ?
My baby's due date was Good Friday. Easter has passed but she's still tumbling happily inside. If she doesn't pop this week, I guess I have to go for induction too....
I'm keeping my stubby legs crossed. For some strange reason, my backside has just started hurting too... still no regular contractions.... sigh... I also sleep in a sitting position cos baby tumbles/moves so much that I think she has moved into a transverse position! She has turned but not fully engaged yet.
read another thread that fresh coconut juice or raspberry tea may help
I can't wait to see baby. Everyone was on standby last weekend. My next check is on Thurs.
baby est weight : 3.1-3.2 kg
Remember dont't carry heavy stuffs ya... but can carry baby ya.
My wound took about 3 weeks to feel much better; prob cos I didn't kuai kuai take pain-killers at all. But even after it was ok, whenever I over-tired or over-stretched myself, the wound would still hurt when apply pressure even after a year on. So take care of yourself well ya.
I am still in my ward after two prostin insertion... One at 2am this morning and one at 10am just now. At this moment, I am starting to get regular contractions (accordingly to the monitoring machine)... The pain isnt that bad, more like an achy feeling. But probably this is only 10% of what's the ultimate pain... lol
They just took away the machine... and I have no idea what's next... They never check my dilation too... So I really dont know what to expect... The only funny thing is that I kept telling hubby that I wish the pain would come soon, at least it shows that there is progress... But when the pain really comes, I hope I dont't complain... lol
Update you guys again...
i remember i couldnt even sit during the first week after delivery till i ask my mum to get me those floats for kids and act as cushion for my butts.
now its almost end of the month(baby full month coming soon), the pain has gone but my mum told me not to squat for 4 mths and dont stand too long also..
though the pain is unbearable during the first two weeks but somehow i dont mind going thru that again.. hahha.. like the feeling of being pregnant.
Yes, the pain will last for a while. I rem the first few days was the worst! I was crouching and hardly could walk without gritting my teeth. Really like an old woman. And it is worse if when I'm lying down for quite a while and had to wake up. Body engine like cold and had to "warm" up which then the pain is more prominent. Small movements also pain so can imagine when you say you cannot laugh, cough and sneeze cos the same happened for me. Take lots of fibre so your stool is very soft then it is easier to poo.
I delivered yesterday at 6:43pm by emergency c-section. Was in Kandang Kerbau Hospital since 2am on 14th April, had 3 prostin insertions but no progress in dilation. On the morning of 15th April, about 10am, doc broke by water bag when i was at 1cm only... it was so painful... After that, was on induction IV drip, the dilation was slow (about 1cm in four hours)... so finally at 6pm, I opted for Caesarean because I cannot stand that past 30 over hours of wait and pain anymore...
I read from all of your discussions about pain after caesarean... Is it really that bad??? Now I am scared!
My turn very soon... =)
Congrts to you, Must be strong ok.dnt worry the wound will be heal soon.it takes about a week only.Eat promper confiment foods.
hi Cream !
Congratulations. Glad yr baby is doing well!
I read somewhere that some babies get distressed due to long labour & then they pass motion (meconium) & breathe that in. They get infection & spend a few days in NICU.
Gynae inserted something to induce at 11am today. Ouch. I think my cervix is temperamental...only dilated 1 cm. still no regular contractions. my baby is already overdue...higher risk of meconium infection
I'm prepared to go C-section. Baby scan today is good. She's enjoying life inside very much. I'll worry about the pain later. Just praying for safe delivery via any means!
Thanks for the well-wishes from all of you...
Ping26, wishing you a smooth and safe delivery... If it really stresses you up too much, maybe an emergency caesarean is not that bad an idea after all... Just ask your doctor what is the best choice for your situation, that will cause least danger and stress to your baby... Update us ok?
