hi all mummies (:
my edd is on this month 28th and everyday im thinking what should i bring when im going to give birth? and what should i bring when im on admission? like IC and so and what?
any mummies give birth at kk hospital recently? can share with me what did you bring along when you are giving birth? and what you bring when you go for admission?
lastly, did kk hospital give mummies and baby when discharge?
sorry, got to post here. cause i need some help. im 1st time mummies.. kind of very anxious and excited. hehe..
thanks in advance (:
Ooohh.. So all bout e menses n hairloss is normal! Hehe.. My menses gt lotsa discharge n i dont like it n now e flow always overloaded after gvg birth... N hairloss is like nobody business... Dropping all round e rm n bed n on my baby too.... So upset!
Anyways, the impt things you need to bring in for admission is
1) pre-admission letter
2) Doc's letter
3) NRIC (yours and hubby's)
4) Marriage certificate
5) Credit cards, money (to pay bills)
I'm not too sure what kk provides for mothers coz i give birth in thomson medical. I need to bring in my own pyjamas. you might want to search around this forum for threads about what to bring. That's what i did before my delivery.
Day 1 - I did not empty my breasts after pumping, engorgement and milk blister developed.
Day 2 - I pumped half the amount
Day 3 - I pumped half the previous amount
Day 4 - I stopped pumping, manually expressed out when my breasts felt like bursting, so hard and painful. Then they start to leak non stop. sianz to infinity.....
Poor baby, as I am the only one taking care of her, she must be feeling uncomfortable when I carry her, with 2 hard stones pressing against her body, and I feel so painful too.
Other than those, bring along your phone, charger, camera (if you want to), a set of baby clothes & your own.
I delivered in KK, but under private. So im not sure if the private one provides the same as subsidized, unless you're seeing private too.
Went to the infant care center to put up her beddings cos she is starting 'school' next week.
feel like crying......
LOL. all of us losing blood more than urine sia. my flow was little but everyday. sickening.
go get the sanitary panty from sloggi. $19.90 each. its really good. i dont get to stain my bedsheet anymore!
but of coz, cannot say dont wear pad n just wear the panty alone.
i rather wash panty than to wash the whole bedsheet. ha.. =)
i guess im quite lucky? i dont experience any hair drop YET. =X
planning for #2 end of this year. dragon baby~! =))
another reason is, its quite tiring to go thru the process from nb baby till 6months old. alot of attention needed. so, 1 time go thru all, better than a few years later then go thru all over again. that will be too tiring. n age gap smaller, things/items pass down also no prob. even nx time go sch, at least school books all that can reuse.
Delivered my girl on 03 Feb 2011 & my boy on 03 Jan 2013 =)
