This is a discussion on EDD May 2011 within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by whomovedmycheese How did you arrange with the public cord blood bank? My next checkup would be next ...
Mummy who have comPleted the process can share?
They will do a screen through question on the phone, then they will arrange a meeting with you and your hubby to get more details.
Luckily i am used to blood donation...if my hubby ...i think he will faint and will ask me not to bother bout donating.
Kinda troublesome , they still want to meet you somewhere to sign consentment form.
I hope SCBB could look into making all the public donation hassle free to donor.
Initially i thought if you r not signing up private the hospital will just take and keep hehehee ...so silly of me.
Wondering what they will do to our placenta as well...
O I think they probably need this to test if the blood is suitable. My friend also wanted to donate but I think her baby's was not suitable.
Just came back from gyne appointment. My baby ger weigh 2.6kg at 36 weeks n 4 days. Gyne say is consider heavy. you all think so? I thought it normal.
I only know my girl will grow even if i dont eat much coz she's taking my stored nutrients hahaha. I gained 400g but she gained 600g. LoL
So you r also full term d. 3 weeks of countdown....anyday now
I'm experiencing BH contractions every evening. About once every hour. This early dawn also once.
Wonder what would be next? Day + Night? Increase frequency? Mucous plug? or.......
anw nowadays i cant seem to sleep well at night. maybe getting anxious being a mother soon. looking fwd to tomorrow's check up!
Maybe is my imagination, i feel that previously the highest part of my upper abdomen is below the breast but now is slightly lower. Then also there are times when right after i come out from WC, and when baby squirm a little makes me feel like going again.
I asked gynae this question if engaged d any estimate like soonest and latest but cannot confirm is the answer i got.
I read online even engaged could still need to wait 3-4 weeks. Even if you have dilated 1-3 cm also could end up waiting for few weeks. Esp for experienced mama they tend to dilate early but still not in labour. So keeping my fingers crossed and just do more squatting and walking in the next few days.
I just got all the documents for cord blood donation d. Just need to bring it to hospital upon admission. Just feel like donating to save lives so not so comfortable in agreeing to the research portion. :P
When your provider tells you about your baby’s station, she is referring to how far down his head has come into your pelvis. If your baby has dropped, but has not yet settled into your pelvis to begin his decent, it is measured in centimeters as a negative station. This negative measurement goes from -3 to -1. Once your baby has settled into your pelvis, but before he starts his descent to the birth canal, it is referred to as a zero (0) station. Once your baby starts heading towards the cervix, it is referred to as a positive station from 1 to 3. During this time it is likely that you will feel an increase of pressure and pain in your pelvic bone and vaginal area.
when gg for the appt for donation of cor bld, does your hubby gotta be there too? like quite troublesome ..
To me it sounds ridiculous too wanna donate somemore so inconvenient.
But I was thinking rather than discard off, we might b saving lives if suitable.
If your family or relative have hereditary blood related illness advisable to keep in private bank. Otherwise just donate to public
Hi , i just signed the form today. Actually the cord is going to donate publicly , so i understand the stringent process that they want to follow.
Just went for my check up, and my baby weight is 2.5kg and i am 35 weeks now , but not yet engaged..
