i will most likely take epidural. i watched discovery home and health yesterday.. one gynae herself gave birth. she was so cool, no screams no shouts no sweat and only 2 pushes, her baby is out.. all becos' she took epidural!!
then showed another lady.. screamed till head coming off.. hahaha. cos' she didnt take pain relief.
gosh. i think i wont be able to tahan!!
feeyona, update us after your checkup k! ya, hope to hear from mama_aki too. wondering how she is..
last nite i had more painful contractions at 25 mins interval for 3 times. then i went to bed and this morning woke up and felt pain on lower abdomen, esp hard to walk.. i wonder is it my baby getting engaged, moving downwards even more... really a timebomb! 12 days more to EDD.
haha.. i really cant imagine the pain.. but some people can do it with epidural.. i guess i will see how its goes..
joanne, i think your signs getting more and more... should be anytime already. gotta monitor carefully... better to play safe...
good morning STJT!
gosh i am feeling sooo sleepy... last few days kept waking up at 2am++ then cant fall asleep till 3 or 4am....
then i got flu again.. makes it worst.. more sleepy.. haha.
Hi kchiah, thanks..i' m 37+3 wks already...i've increased my food intake especially rice cos seldom eat rice, always eat bread, maybe thats why baby dont put on much.. How's your baby's jaundice? Btw how long does baby jaundice ussually subside?
Huafen- congrats on your cute baby boy, your baby very smart, if no milk dont want to suck.. Hopefully with all the patience and perseverance , baby will feed sucessfully..Do you breastfeed baby right after birth? I thought of doing so but not sure if Kandang Kerbau Hospital practice such.. Does your consultation done in tps, cos after birth does baby have to follow up @ children tps or they allow to go private pediatrician? I dont like the smell of milk but no choice have to pinch nose n force it down,hehe... Huafen, hope your baby jaundice level will subside...take care ya...
Hope to hear from mama_aki soon, wonder how her birth story like.. I find that every mummies had diff birth story to tell...
pumpkin, if possible must eat properly okie? during the last few weeks, baby wil be gaining weight.. dont worry too much.
STJT, you have not plan your maternity ar? going to work till deliver?
sorry for the interruption.
I have 2 bottles of traditional home-made red wine for confinement to let go at $12 per bottle.
Nice sweet and 100% without preservative.
It is best for confinement for blood circulation and removal of wind.
PM me if interested.
irene, you gg on ML nx week onwards rite? then what are you going to do at home?
monday i'm gg checkup, if dr still says i have not dilate, not gg to give birth soon then i'll come back office on tuesday. if he says i could be anytime, then probably i'll stay at home already because my workplace is damn far from my home.
i've been waking up at least 2 times every night but the funny thing is, i'm very awake and energetic when i wake up at 545am for work these days. i read that when we are approaching our D day, there will a surge in energy. kinda true for me.
pumpkin, actually taking white bread will gain weight.. its carbo mah. but of cos, eating rice will have greater effect =)
try to increase your number of meals, and if you want to gain weight fast for your baby, take maternal milk powder (eg. enfamama or similac those kind) cos' those are more fattening as compared to fresh milk.
yar, my ML starts next week.. actually i only left 2 days at home.. cause wed early morning will be gynae checkup already.
will be spending time with my mum.. go walk walk.. to aid in smoother delivery (hopefully). then stay at home do chores..
need to wash the baby's bedsheet and "play" with the sterilizer.. have not open yet.. 2 days should be quite fast to spend..
btw, anyone have done CTG yet? i need to do it the next checkup again..
baby heartbeat very loud and i was inside a room with door open... my hubby said whole clinic can hear it clearly.. when i came out from the room, everyone was looking at me haha..
but very interesting... when baby moved, can hear the heartbeat very fast..

irene, that's good! baby has healthy heart
i have not done any CTG. dr says my cramps/contractions are braxton hicks, so he didnt do CTG haha.
ya, if 2 days should be quite fast. cos i was thinking, if my baby overdue, it'll be more than 2 weeks of my ML at home.. so might as well come to work if i feel okay. plus my handover not really properly done yet. still need more time to go through with that person. i'm worried when i come back 4 mths later, my things all in a mess!!! but got a pc of good news yest, is that i'll be getting a promo during my maternity or when i'm back. kinda happy and thus at least i think i gt something to look forward to after the long break.. if not very lazy to come back to work haha.
dont know the reason for doing CTG also.. only know it monitor the heartbeat.. yar every happy to see baby heartbeat so good and active..
wah.. you must be a very good employee.. can get promotion even during maternity leave. really something to look forward.. for my case, i think i will really drag to come to work after so many weeks of leave..
if still able to go to work will be good, else i guess you will be very bored (unless you want a short break before arrival of baby avry). hehe..
what job are you in?
i always sleep and sleep when i take leave lol. so i find that i get more backaches and even more tired after the rest, and thus go work, walk around, let my brain do some thinking i feel better! moreover, when i take leave, my hubby also very lazy to work and try to skive.. ahaha. but if i feel very tired in the morning, i'll just call in and take leave .. dont care :P
not good employee . cos' i've been working in the same co for a couple of yrs.. just nice our promo is always in june/july and happened during maternity leave. i'm in oil/gas, doing proj management and tendering of proj. =)
haha. i think your hubby want to spend more time with you ..
for me i also cant stay at home one.. but i dont like to go to work.. so either way also tiring for me.. haha
but at least you are still getting promotion.. something to celebrate! hehe
will you all be planning for full month party? haha.. must start planning also. not sure during confinement will have the energy ant..
Normal jaundice will subside by 2wks but think my one not drinking enough so become worse ...
CTG is to mointor the contractions like how the interval like
Let's distract ourselves a little haha....what are your plans for baby shower / full month?
I told my hubby, I dont't like the idea of bengawan solo vouchers @_@
Hey ladies, went for gynae's appt just now and dr has confirmed to induce me. So he told me to admit on Sunday night, start induce n hopefully my girl will be delivered by Monday. As he checked my girl's weight, it is still at 2.5kg, which means she is not absorbing anymore nutrients. According to dr, it is better to deliver her now since she's already full term and if still delay, she might be at risk of lack of oxygen... So Hubby n me super excited now!!!
I took up premier package
Hi pumpkin, Kandang Kerbau Hospital encourage us to breastfeed. They even encourage your baby to be at your side all times. But for mr since I have no milk I normally try to latch him on awhile then send him back to nursry for feeding and after that will push him back to my room
you can bring your baby to other clinic to see dcotor. Unless some special cases that need their attention.
