Week 38+6: My boy is not enagaged. Head size 100cm already! Weighing 3.27kg. Comfortable in his womb hotel with fluid level and placenta still in good condition. Gynae still going await his natural entrance to this world unless he is overdue till week 41.
100cm is the diameter hee
Mummies who have not give birth. I heard from my friend that it is important to use the right muscles to push.
If use wrong muscles will damage the nerves near the urinary area hence do not feel urge to urine. I wonder is that why some mummies have urinating problems after giving birth?
Remember is to push like you have a very big constipated shit out. It doesn't sound nice but that's how it really is.. Use butt muscles.. Many friends told me this before I give birth so I remembered very clearly. Eunice only came out on the 6th or 7th push..
Actually after birth I can go urine already.. Maybe other mummies got advice to share also??
Congrats slee! Welcome to motherhood..
Hope you have a mighty good rest.
I think it's true with facebook here not so active already.. hehehe..
Ladies, I have delivered! Yesterday nite started having contractions starting from 10pm onwards, all e way till 6am. Intervals got closer with more intensifying pain, until I could no longer take it at 6am. Admitted into gleneagles at 630am, already 5cm dilated. Then got epidural which was super painful n I cried like anything during the process. After that no pain AT ALL! 10cm dilated at 10.30am, baby delivered at 11am with the help of forceps as I could not reali push! Now still in hospital till Tuesday. Stiches painfulhave not started bf yet, will try tomorrow... Advise needed! Is Mdm Zaliah good? May I have her contacts? Or any more recommendations?
then I asked my hubby if he saw I was "cut" by gynae during labour, he said he only saw that gynae was holding a scissors-like thingy haha!
Anyway mdm zaliah is not bad, I find her massage ok but breasts massage very good!! Painful but unblock the milk ducts for you if you have any. She's friendly too.. But not sure if she is taking anymore massages for time being. you can call n ask her!
how come cheryl can feel the pain from epidural despite the contraction? boohoo scare scare :x
@cheryl - your princess has such thick hair! Do you feel ticklish near the cervix area before when you were still carrying her?

Congrats Cheryl. For Kandang Kerbau Hospital, before epi injections I was given athesatic to numb that area. So when adminstrating the epi, I feel nothing.
Xbb-epi dont work 100% on everyone. Happen on mi!!!!! When I was on epi, my last 2 hours is painful!!! sigh sometime wondering i shouldn't have took epi since I also feel the intense pain during the last stage. Haha. But the pain really worth it after seeing my baby boy
Congratz new mummies!! Emmm now left with xbb and me, seems like the rest all now enjoying motherhood...
Joanne, dr tham still set the appt date one week even thou is after 40wks isit?
