congrats to all mummies who have delivered and those that havent, hang in there, won't be long now.
just to share, at 39wks i had symptoms of toxemia so dr said check in to hospital the next day so he can induce me, plus i had been having regular contractions for a wk but no dilation, not engaged. i said ok, in that case i need epidural.
i was in labour for 8hrs (was sleeping for the most part) and delivered my boy without pain (pushing was fast also, about 15mins). i couldnt even feel myself push. after epidural wore off tho, that's when the pain from the stitches started. was so bad i cried myself to sleep and the next morning, dr gave me a jab of pethadine.
to sum it up, my induction experience was not as bad as i thought it would be, in fact it was so fast.
Has your milk come in yet? i'm slowly increasing day by day but its still not enough for baby so i supplement with similac. every 3hrs, total of 40-50mls each pump session and its so disappointing because it's been over a week since i delivered. i just started taking fenugreek pills today and oatmeal cereal with milk and have been drinking whatever herbal soup / longan drink my nanny makes for me. i pump to monitor my flow and also coz my nipples hurt too much to b/f. i so want to latch him on but i dont think i will till my flow comes in. anyone has anything to contribute?
Be careful with drinking cows' milk or even those powdered ones if you're breastfeeding. Can trigger allergy to baby's.
come here to share good news...
my baby pop out on 20 march early morning...
now can start my cow cow day
Where do you buy green papaya? Hubby's been looking but he only sees the ripe ones
Hi mummies, my girl finally came to this world on 15 Mar by normal delivery. I like to ask those mummies who had normal delivery regarding their wound/stitches. For me, 6 days have passed but my wound is still very painful ESP when going to sit down or get up fr a seat. I have no problem to pee or when I use the sprinker to clean up but dont understand why is still so painful while walking or when I use tissue to dry the wound. Can let me know how long does it take for your wound to recover??
^pelvic floor muscles/perineum area also stretched(the area between vagina and rectum), that's the reason why you're still in pain. Same thing with me right now. It normally takes 1-2weeks to recover but still varies, each person is different
Noted the last post was since 24/3/11. I guess all mummies who have just given birth are busy with their new born babies, just like me. My girl is now 14 days old. We are now busy planning her full month's celebration. Right now, I have my confinement nanny who is taking care of my girl and she cooks very well but very stress and worry if I am able to cope with my girl once my nanny leave??? I have not't learn to bath her ｙｅｔ ｃｏｓ
