Excited for you!!!! Hope it's the mucus plug dislodged. that means baby Arvy reporting soon!!!
Update us after your check up.
STJT - you reject VE check again. Haha. Any updates from your gynae? You reaching week 39 right?
Joanne, dont know about mucus. Heard it means labour could be anytime. Waiting for your updates!
Hi Mummies! I am discharged today. I'm still getting used to being sucked so frequently, my nipples hurt!! I think I didn't latch on correctly during the first night. Cos I act smart think I go the class I know already, so when I unlatch the baby I just pull out my nipple and my nipple was torn and sore already. I got a medela nipple shield, it's my best friend now.
Eunice latches on very well, I feel so busy.. Every 2-3h try to latch on for at least 15min. Before that need to do breast massage, then some feeding Eunice can latch for 2h... Arms tired, nipple pain and sleepy...
Oh.. I went into hospital at 5plus. Then was put on oxytocin to induce labor. Aiyoh and I didn't poo poo that day.
After the waterbag burst I was so worried the baby suddenly come out when I push so I decided to wait to go hospital for them to empty my stools but because my waterbag burst already so they didn't. At 5pm was still 3cm dilated. No pain just some slight cramps.
My friend suggested for me to take some supplements to help muscle contractions. Lucky I did loh.. More severe cramps came in at bout 6plus then I told the nurse, She suggested pain relief so I tried the laughing gas first. It didn't really help much cos I didn't use it properly. At 7 plus the pain was bad already. They were changing shift and the new nurse came in to teach me how to breathe properly with it. I had a very strong intention to shit.. Told ther nurse and checked already 8cm dilated! So no need epidural!! The doctor estimated me to deliver at 12mn. But I managed to deliver at 8 plus.
So I am proud I gave birth to a healthy 3.85kg princess, naturally, no epidural!
Hi luckymum, congrats. Can go home with your baby gal Eunice . N also congrats on your success of breast feeding jia you. Ya understand cam be quite tiring
Wow luckymum, your tolerance level must b really high since Eunice is a big baby n you managed to deliver naturally without epi!! Salute!!
Yup. Haha the strong urge to shit. I will never 4get that feeling haha. Wow you can endure pain.
When the urge comes, you will use all the strength to push rite. Haha. To mi all I tell myself i want this process to finish faster. Use all the strength I have to push haha. your birth duration is short. 5plus went in 8 plus give birth. Really luckymum hehe
Very tired and today's VE very painful!!
I kana fungus infection thus green discharge.
Luckymum, you r my idol !!! Deliver a big baby without epidural. Can't imagine how did you do that ? Do you exercise a lot before you gave birth? Eunice is a good girl , help mum to have smooth delivery too. Oh ya, did you have episiotomy ?
Luckymum, you dilated very fast and congrats on delivering without epi! Happy motherhood ahead! so nice that your baby can latch on well.
Oh ya luckymum you mentioned about the supplement that help muscle contraction. What is that ?
Ya he went quite deep in and thus was painful!! The last VE was okay.
Hmm he says infection is common among gestational diabetes patients n gave me this pill to insert in. Honestly I dont know hw to insert !
Hi Huafen, i nearly wanted to buy my breast friend pillow after staying at kk. Then i realised after giving birth i feel my tummy still the same.. but very convenient cos breast feeding dont need pillow when i do modified cradle.. just lay eunice on my tummy can already!
I nearly considered epidural at 7plus, but for that kind of pain i am already 8cm. Thank God! I was praying for a short delivery.. I was completely high on the laughing gas already. I think I dilated first because I purposely overdoes on the calcium and magnesium supplement that help my muscle to relaxed. She tried it and worked. Her baby was 4kg plus some more loh...I'm asking my other friend due next month to try. Wahahaha..
I think I had episotomy .. Got stitches, now the bleeding lesser already, can sit and walk normally
Mummies who have not give birth, do try to grab a takeaway snack to eat after delivery, I was super hungry after that then all shops closed already.. but remember to eat slowly
Joanne, maybe some squatting might help avry to get engaged?
These few days I have been walking alot and resting alot as well to prepare for labour. We need lots of energy.
My mother in law asked me drink chicken essence on the day of admission too.
for fungal infection, dont tyour doc help to insert the med? my doc did it for me... he said some pple dont know how far to push the med in..
Hi luckymum, you r good, ha ha, your delivery is smooth, w/o Epi, wow ...
How many cal n mag you took before delivery? I took very little only on that day...
Joanne, I understand how you feel. Waited so long for her to come out naturally. Hoping induce is not necessary.
But if really need induce after due date also no choice. Just count down to your edd and baby in your arms!
Hope that she will come out naturally soon! Enjoy the baby movements! I am loving his movements so much!
