so far i didn't do VE, dont know when wil be 1st time.....?
I've got a question. Is it if baby is not engaged, the gynae won't do VE? Since not engaged probably means not dilated?
She uses finger. Arrgh weather so hot. Just had kimchi ramyun from this Parker restaurant. Going home n wait for more painful contraction or water bag burst.
yeah it's sooo hot....even at home.
i roll up my tank-top to my breasts so my tummy can breathe....keke!
ya , very very hot ..
i am so tempted to soak in side a pool.. but too bad no swimming clothes..
after hearing you all so many comments..
i think i really need to be hard working to walk more..
but outside is really damn hot! Besides that, i also do some yoga pose..
do lotus sit and butterfly move the legs and loosen the pelvics..
i also do half squat and full squatting, i dont't know can help or not ..
oh ya , i remembered that Mrs Wong from Thomson Medical Center antenatal course said do cycling movement also can..
I am really kan cheong for 3 of you who are due oredi..
tomorrow i will see my gynae.. i hope my baby can come out this week..
i dreamt that i have spotting .. , but usually dream always is the opposite of the real life...
you got 2 more weeks to go ... Good that you persevere on the exercises. Since I'm on leave didn't walk as much. At most 4 blocks n walk at home only.
My contractions are getting painful n frequent but still bearable.
Hopefully this midnight got some action to share *fingers crossed*
my hubby keep asking baby when is she coming out, asking her to fast fast come out. Both of us so gan chiong
My checkup becomes twice a week since 36 week n need to put on CTG everytime.(s$50-100++) Today dr told me today baby is already engaged n CTG graph shows 2 contractions during 20 mins.. but I couldn't feel it... If like this, how far from real painful contraction?? A bit scary , seems my gal wants to come out soon...
I still have to work till end of week...
But so far here's my personal observation.
<35 wks normal tightening on upper abdOmen which I think is baby movement
35-38 bh tightening of whole abdomen up n down no pain one. Feel uncomfortable only.
39 - once or twice a day when bh happen lower pelvis feels pressure ESP when standing or walking
40- now every bh almost all together with pelvis pressure n is bearable pain.
Now best part is I dont know whether to concentrate on deep breathing when contraction happen or time the contraction. dont think it us easy to do 2 together. Lol
Thank you Isy for the info..
wow i didn't know tht kiwi n mango can induce labor... / contraction..
i ate a lot of mango n kiwi in early pregnancy hahah
i love mango..
mayb i would try on cycling on the stationary bike .. got one at home. hhhehe
As much as i know that when the baby arrives, i will not have enough sleep and will be super tired! But im getting a little bit impatient! This is the reason why i did not want to take ML before i deliver anyway is too late to say it now....
Im so bored. When will baby come???
i told him my mother in law n hubby also want me to wait , since fluid level is still ok , but Dr say you will never know what happend inside, so better induce n if after 10 hours still no progress , he wont drag , do c -sec on 11/5 morning ...sigh.... he is my gynea i should believe him ????? my friend advise me say , since now im full term and i dont feel any contraction , no dilation and no engaged i should not waste time n money to do induce should go stright to c -sec ( if want baby come out now).... but i really hope i can go for natural birth this is why i told my gynea try induce 1st ....dont know am i do the right ???? sigh............... just hope baby will fine n healthy ..........................very down now
I'm now talking to my girl , luring her with toys, rockers, n all her cousins wishing to play with her lol. Sound so silly but what to do my mom n sis advise me that's the way to welcome her.
I think you should not c-sect straight away. Extra few hundred to try natural birth is worth it.we have read many successful induce stories natural birth. Azzzima was induced right.
