went check up today. baby is at a good weight, head down, but not engaged and nose/face facing out, so doc is expecting a long, hard and overdue labour so set an elective c-sect date. next monday gonna see my little boy, dont know what to feel also.
not sure how long is the recovery period..i kw the bleeding last 4 to 6 weeks like that.. wound if natural birth also around 4 weeks like that..not sure about c-sect..heard c-sect need longer recovery period.thats what i heard from my nurse manager..during childcare class.
Me too, I squeeze my breasts also nothing come out. Worried about whether the colostrum will come out anot.
If I remember, i sometimes massage my breasts when I shower, but dont't know got effect anot.
Shi san yee
dont't think/worry too much. Who knows by next monday your baby will be engaged? Just make sure you get enough rest during that 1 month of confinement period. My mom also only had 1 month of maternity leave when she gave birth to me. And dont't strain yourself when you get back to work. Health is more important.
i was at mt a this morn at 4am cos frm 3-3.30am, tummy felt really tight n hard n i couldnt feel baby move! i was really worried so decided not to risk it n just get myself checked.. labour ward n observation ward full house! they had to squeeze in an extra bed for me..
was monitored for about an hr.. baby's heartbeat was slow at first then suddenly went faster but thank God everythin stabilised after that.. nurse said ive got a cheeky baby!
oh n i hate e dilation check!! experienced for e first time.. not dilated at all so i could go hm.. will be seeing gynae on thurs.. looks like baby's still comfortable in me.. hmm
GA will be administered thru IV at the arm, but they will put a mask over to knock me out with the IV drip. Cannot eat/drink 10 hours before, to avoid nausea or puking when i wake up.
went for checkup just now.. baby dint gain weight this past week.. still 2.7kg.. gynae says baby not much space left to grow cos im skinny n my tummy's small but water lvl's ok for now.. mon hav to see him again.. if baby's still not growing n water lvl has dropped, might hav to induce.. ive been eating well so not sure y baby dint gain weight.. feel so sad.. =(
