recently, I have been experiencing sudden stabbing pain in my vagina... no blood or spotting though.
This happens on and off since I was 32 weeks, but it is getting a bit more frequent...
Does it happen to any of you??
for natural birth, what if "down there" doesnt go back to normal and becomes loose? also...how about peeing/pooping...won't it sting?
i been experiencing some sharp pain around my tummy. Is like needles poking it. But it's still able to tahan. just uncomfortable. wonder if anyones having it as well? :x
Any mummies had their maternity portraits done?
are you all feeling such discomforts because your babies are engaged in position for the big day? Have you all checked with the gynea?
I'm also observing these days whether my baby has been engaged head down on the pelvis, but seem like mine's not yet..
Those pelvis pain or discomforts are a good sign that your baby is in position for the natural birth ... so nothing to worry...
As for loose vagina after birth, you can make it more tight with more pelvic floor exercises after birth.
Just went for my 35 th week check-up today... Baby is doing fine and weighs 2.8kgs now, according to Gynae is of a good size
Baby is 4/5 engaged...
Apparently the sharp pains that I experienced at my vaginal area indicated that Baby's head was getting engaged...
Gynae says baby may be ready to be out in end Feb...
When will the rest of you be starting your maternity leave?
For myself, this is my last week at work

Wow end Feb is fast! Is this your 1st baby? I'm also into 35wks +, but still dont't feel baby engaging down there... I plan my maternity leave starting end of feb .. as my EDD is 12 Mar, dont dare take too early to rest, later wasted the maternity leave.
Jia you to you and baby ya! rest well
Sorry to disturb. Is any mummy looking for traditional confinement rice wine for their confinement? If yes, please sms me 98163526. Or visit Supplier of Traditional Confinement Rice Wine
yup... it's my #1...
I guess it's the nature of my job that causes me to want to take my maternity leave earlier. I have to stand and walk around quite a lot daily and even need to lug unfinished work home... In fact, I suspect that the standing during my work, causes my aches to escalate...
With fatigue setting in, and very bad water retention convinces me to get rest soon too...
In fact about a couple of weeks ago, I had an accident that frightened me a little, nearly causing me to suffer a fall... My hubby was actually a little angry with me for not taking my ML early and exposing myself to the hazards at work...
Now my problem is that though I submitted my ML to my superior, she seemed very reluctant to approve my leave... and wanted to see me tomorrow , regarding why I need to start my leave early when my initial due date was 16 march...
The way my gynae said--- we'll discuss your delivery date at your 37th week appt, makes me think that he might induce me...
Actually, I dont really mind cos my water retention is so terrible I cant even bend my fingers and knees after a long day at work and my ankles are "non-existent"!!!
recently my contractions are getting quite uncomfortable and giving me goosebumps
care to share which brand of breast pump, manual or electric you all get??
btw my edd is 6th march..it's time to get one soon...

My colleague gave me a medela electric dual breast pump, my hubby bought me a pigeon electric single breast pump, so easier to bring out or to work as more compact...
Hi evie, ya you deserve a longer break since your job so demanding, still must see boss face to let you off earlier. But if your boss so unhappy, should suggest lighten your workload so you still can help out till nearer yr due date .. How can make a pregnant woman stand and walk so much.. I sit in office whole day also swell like a pig from the water retention, dont say walking and standing, it's worst! you must take care at all times so just go take your leave soon.
My feet have swollen quite a bit argh! even my slippers are tight! thankfully its my last wk of work. i have 3 weeks of leave to clear anyway, before my maternity leave.
