This is a discussion on EDD in Dec 2011 within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Hey Bingtingyin Initially I went to the same gynae as you in chua chu kang, but as I was not used to ...
Initially I went to the same gynae as you in chua chu kang, but as I was not used to this fast speed, we decided to change.
I must admit that his waiting time is pretty short, like 20 mins but his consultation time is even faster, like 2 mins done.
We felt stress as a first time mum and dad, we ve many qn and we need to stand to ask as his gesture is like telling us to be quick and go.
But if course he us a nice doc who will answer to our qn, it just that we not used to his style.
My current gynae's waiting time is long but she very detailed and explain to us clearly as she scan the baby, the best is we can take our time to clarify our doubts.
Of course I understand first time parents will want to know more detail that y I say not all ppl can take his chara.
Yea really depends in individual body. Some mummies from starting till give birth no discharge or anything.
So we must take good care of ourselves.
My another frien keep telling me is all fated. If she go gynae early n take care of herself all this will not happen and it can be avoid one.
All is over but just want to share with you. Sorry, too longwinded. you have your nap? Me just woke up after an hr nap.
True ... Now walk a bit cannot make it ... I tell you , really cannot say other people one.... Got one time I saw a pregnant lady walk so slow and like a duck then I told my hubby, got so kua zhang meh? Last time I pregnant with dear son also not like this... Still can walk very fast and not waddling kind... SEE ! Slap my own mouth ! =P REALLY CANNOT SAY ONE! TABOO!
Wah so good he? Help you save money! Hehe... He talk also chop chop, deliver also chop chop! LOL! My one natural really chop chop... He come in that time, baby crowning already... Then the nurses help him put on his robe and shoes then he sat down and ask me push ... He then used vacuum (this part I not quite happy cos he did not let me try on push on my own then immediately use it I dont't know why) and within 4 pushes, dear son was out... Then he stitch up my episiotomy wound also very fast... Within like 5 mins then tell me he will see me the next morning and there he goes ... The whole delivery process took like about half an hour? Haha...
Csect also fast? Must remove stitches when? He is well known for his stitching so I think is really his stitching skills damn good... Even for my episiotomy wound, even the nurses also commented he did a great job... Very neat and thus easy to recover... So many mummies also commented his csect stitching very good so they recover very fast...
It's true must warn mummies about his style first before recommending, especially first time mummies... Some mummies can take it, some can't... Initially I dont't feel comfortable with him too but slowly slowly learnt to accept his style and after all, his skills are good and package cheap also so what can I complain about? Hehe...
I really hope 2nd time will be faster and easier... My #1 was induced, took 11 hours to fully dilate... That to me, is LONG... =.=" Luckily half way through got epi, if not I think even longer as I only dilated 0.5 cm in 4 hours when I was without epi... Zzz...
By the way, with regards to whether baby's head being down at this stage means early labour, I forgot to ask him... Sorry... Hehe... But I dont't think so cos a lot of mummies their babies also head down already but their gynae did not highlight early labour to them? So dont't worry ya? Stay cool and wait for the arrival of your lovely baby! Exciting, isn't it? Especially since this is your first... =D
Joanna bought 2 boxes at the baby fair! Great for her to know that it's useful! Hehe... You know it was only $5.70 per box?? Dang! Haha... Did you stock up? You went right?
Anyway, I think it really does cause water retention cos my tummy was forever big even though I had my jamu massage done and after a few months, my tummy was still there... Best to drink red dates drink only or milo after delivery and during confinement ... But I dont't like the after taste of milo after drinking it cos it's like very "siap siap" and I feel that I need to "wash it off" as it's sweet... You know what I mean? Hehe... But I think a few sips of plain water shouldn't do any harm as I would think so...
Coconut juice has to be those fresh young coconut bear in mind... I get it from NTUC since not easy to get it from those fresh fruits stalls... I anyhow drink only... Since it says YOUNG coconut so I guess should be those bah... Haha... Some say start 34 to 36 weeks thereabouts... I just started today as I am afraid baby might be early and no time to drink already if later... I plan to drink once a week only as I cannot take too cooling stuff due to asthma... If can, twice a week would be nice I think...
Chinese name I am not sure whether can use fan ti zhi... Cos when I registered the name for the birth cert, the lady doing it for me showed me the chinese characters on her screen and asked me which character is it based on the hanyu pinyin I gave her... So MAYBE there might be fan ti zhi inside... But I doubt so since in Singapore, we all learn simplified chinese so dont't think they will allow? dont't know true or not... JMO... Or you can try calling Registry of Births to ask first?
i took about an hour nap too.. keke now watch tv and dinner later.
you have not schedule your delivery date? mine reaching next thurs excited! last big items to arrive! i still have not pack yet only some items inside hahahah... hope i'm not lazy and pack soon
coconut drink must be those small fresh coconut which you can find in Giant or NTUC. like Angie say some say 34-36 weeks start drinking but maybe you ask your mum for preference.
for my mum, she dont't allow me to drink so early. she told me to start drinking 1 mos before my edd or few weeks before my edd cos it's very "liang".
for baby name, i think mostly we using simplified characters. after all singapore recognize simplified characters. but maybe you can ask the person weather you can use traditional characters. no harm asking
hahaha i told hub really so sweet ! and he also told me dont't tell me you wanna buy that "PINK" for dear son?! hahahhah i laugh and say no how can?! but if is girl i may consider ;p
yea i love the color that i bought too.. hope #2 is a baby girl too is unisex color and hub really love it too. he open and close and push in the house when no one around hahha..
serious ? so you think i cos you said that pregnant mummy then now you have difficult walking? then i cannot anyhow give comments... shhh
but nowadays i feel my boobs below like getting tighter and rounder ... i must sit up straight if not very xin ku.

My #1 delivery on Sunday about 8am and he came around 8.30am n see me and tell me today noon I will gv birth. Me also induced but until 12plus then he told me that I cannot natural birth and every fast ask me want Ga or epi. Frm 8.30pm to 12 plus he total came 3 times. My hubbie told me he just waited less than 10mins outside the opt room, the nurse push my girl out .
you super, took 11hrs to fully dilate. Me just few hours already want to gv out n faint off. He just came half an hr n everything done? that go our few k for his delivery charge. But at least he chop chop can faster let go out pain.
Like you say he csect stitching skill is good, I after discharge I did not take any pain killer n can walk properly. Me also nothing to complain about. just to accept his chop chop attitude. But overall is really prof.
your #2 will faster one. Some more you one yr one so your body will react faster. My cousin told me cos she also one yr one. Her #2 less than 3 hours done.
Csect will on drip the first day then second day can eat n drink. But I dont rem I gt ask my mum to prepare red date drink for me n I rem I just have my meal n the orange or apple juices n before sleep shot Milo. did not drink warm or plain water but gt a flask you can use to put hot wter,
This time I will rem to ask my mum prepare the drink n ask hubbie bring to hospital for me.
i think as long as dont't drink plain water will do. yea ask your mum to prepare for you better. my mum already asked me need to prepare foods for me ...
hahhaah i told her no need cos they got confinement foods just help me prepare drinks can .
oh yea you think can put abit on adults shirt collar then throw inside washing machine ? mother in law asked me this and i say can try ..
What I mean is can I use on adults clothing too? Cos you know something shirt collar tends to get dirty easily so she was thinking can
apply abit and rub it then throw in washing machine and wash.
