hi didy, yes cos my 1st pregancy is natural birth without anything and i hope this 2rd time will be the same. pray hard 2rd one wont be as pain as 1st one.
yah, our edd is very close.
i have mixed feelings actually, excited to see how he looks like and all the joy for the new addition to the family, but at the same time so much things to worry about too. like whether or not i can endure the pain and go without epidural (high chance i cannot endure), whether i have breast milk to feed him, whether or not he be a healthy boy, whether how long i need to lose of the fats...ha ha . i think too much !!!
hi hotmilk yes the pain is really terrible but once the baby head is out the pain is gone. if you cannot stand the pain you better take epidural cos after certain cm opening doc wont allow you to take epidural. the pain is terrible when your cervic is open start from 3cm onwards. Beginning the pain is still ok. But natural birth is good and next day i can get down my bed and walk.
oh dear.. now seeing what everyone says about giving birth, i am really scared actually... though im excited to be a first time mum. n guess its normal for all of us to worry too much.
start from 3cm and pain till 10cm is really hard to imagine !
is the contraction more painful or the stitches is more painful? how long does the stitches need to heal before we wun feel any pain when walk, pee or rest ? sorry for asking so many questions, really hope to prepare myself
I have a Medela Mini ELect Plus ( DUal pump ) and city pack ( Cooler Bag ) to let go.
Used it only twice n no fluid pass through the parts.
this is bought locally in Feb this year and I still have the receipt and warranty.
PM me if interested =)
hi hot milktea. the most painful part is the contaction from 3cm-9cm as from 9cm the nurse will ask you to push your baby out. The stiching still ok not very pain and the next day early morning nurse will force you go toilet to ssh ssh cos they want to make sure no inflection. you have to gentle when cleaning your below using cotton bud and the healing will be around 2weeks time, depend on your gynae skill too. dont worry as long as you can go through the contaction part the rest still ok.
did anyone here monitor their baby movements as what gynae has instructed 10 movements over 12 hours?
i feel my baby movements is weaker suddenly from yesterday till today, and it worries me. he still moves but not as strong
Dear all, thank you for your assurance.
My baby is kicking well this morning, maybe he feels lethargic for the past 2 days?
But it's such a relieve, I will continue to monitor closely.
It's actually quite stressful and 10 more weeks to go!
yah understand its a stressful thing to monitor, tried monitoring myself using the iphone apps.
at times hen my baby never kick or move at certain period which she usually does, my hubby will try all methods to wake her up. I just ask him try to listen to heartbeat, but he got no clue at all -.-"
Jia you all mommys!! 2-3 more months to Novemeber!!
Hi all Nov Mummies,
I am new to this forum... my EDD is 6 Nov. but still confused over all the baby kicking and heartbeat monitoring issue...now my only job is to monitor my bp and blood glucose as i am an overage diabetic blur mummy to be ... nice to be here with you guys
Welcome onboard, newbee!
any mummies gonna deliver at Glen E ? I wld be and wonder if i be bumping into anyone as neighbors?
For my case, my girl varies in her kicks / movements. Sometimes is very gentle type like knocking on the door, then we will press back to the same position, she will continue for a few more times.
But sometimes hers are very strong kicks like using leg to kick my tummy. Then at times, she will be going from left to right side of the tummy, probably trying to find space in the limited area.
I try to aga aga monitor, but didn't write down :P I felt really happy when she is kicking and moving inside my tummy
but I buy her clothes according to this:
1 for her discharge
2 sets for her full month celebration
1-2 sets for xmas celebration (to go kai kai friend/relatives place)
2-3 sets for Chinese new Year
haha... but my hubby ask me to buy another 2 more sets for normal wearing during OG sales, coz its $5 for 2 sets, plain and simple one.
I buy all the clothes online, so dont't really have those impulsive buy, i just put what i like into the cart, keep on screening through, and some online store will only have free shipping or certain discount when you spent up to certain amount so I just say to myself forget it .. haha...
I try not to buy too many pink item coz i dont't really love love pink, so i will buy like purple, blue yellow etc, but more girly design, but my hubby can't resist buying pink items! Pink milk bottle brush, car seat pink, everything also pink -.-"
