I worked my last 0.5 day this morning.
Will be starting to clear my leave first before beginning my maternity leave on 12 Sept.
Thankfully my appeal for a vacancy at the childcare is successful and my girl will be starting school on Monday! Hubby and I shall be bringing her there tomorrow to get her uniforms. Hehehehe!
The last time I visited my gynae was 3 Aug at 31 weeks and 3 days... My baby was 1.4 kgs at that time. Gynae said it's a good weight. At that time I already put on 15.5kgs -_-""
My next appointment is 7 Sept, will be 36+ weeks preggy by then. Wondering how much does he weigh now, have not't seen him for sooooo long!
My boy is more active at night, his movements are usually huge and kinda painful but there were also 'quiet moments' when he doesnt move much.
Had very labour like contractions a few days ago, it felt exactly the same when I was delivering my daughter. My hubby also panicked and was wondering if I was going to give birth that night... The contractions were like 10 mins then 7 mins then 5 mins apart. Thankfully it stopped in the morning.
So dont worrie, Alisa, sounds like your baby's in the healthy range
Just to ask, does anyone feel your heart pumping faster, pounding harder (prob working harder) and breathless more often nowadays?? It makes me hard to fall asleep at night + with baby's kickings.. and wonder if I should seek doc's help...
Baby's movements are usually huge and painful, I am still carrying my 2 yo from time to time and it makes my whole body even more uncomfortable.
Are you still working and how much are you sleeping?
I had anxiety attacks previously and had to consult the psychiatrist for medication to help my insomnia and calm me down.
I googled too about this condition and most of them indicated that it's because of the extra blood flow needed for our baby. For me eating lesser sugary food and make slower movements helped my condition. Of course, try to eliminate any kind of stress. I had it bad when I was having my exams few weeks ago.

Mommies, my gynae advised that if you have the luxury, take mid-morning or mid-afternoon nap or lie down for an hour so that the blood can flow better to the baby to ensure healthy growth.
My baby was weighed at 1.5kg at 31 weeks, which is a bit of the petite side and the gynae said that usually her babies should be at about 1.8kg (averagely) at 31 weeks. Thus, I was told to eat more fish and chicken to get enough protein and see if she can catch up with her growth. My gynae showed me a chart of her up-to-date growth. There were 3 lines on the graph. Top line = big baby, middle line = normal weight (ideal) and the bottom line = too small. My baby's growth has shown a steady line in between the middle and the bottom line.
Since the last check up, I've been eating fish everyday in hope that she can get to the middle line. Fingers crossed.

Sometimes my baby will make a sudden movement on the side of my belly, where her head is and I call that her cornering movement. It made me yelp in pain and when I gently press on the belly, I could feel her fist ( i think) It was an amazing experience that I could feel her from outside. Keke..
This 2days my baby moves even more.. like 24/7 no need sleep like that... Think i coughing too much also that cause him to keep moving.
His movement is very big now like wanna squeeze out of my tummy.
I am down with flu and cough... hopefully will not affect baby.
I'm 33 weeks n baby weight is 1.9kg. Gynae say it's good too. I gained about 1kg in a week. My baby has turned head down in preparation for labour. I can feel his kicks higher up in my tummy. And he's always pushing or rubbing against my bladder n make me want to pee often. I woke up average of 3 times at night to pee -.-"
Gynae asked me to count baby's movement and I must have 10 movements by end of the day. But baby is so active that from the time I wake up at 6.30am to 9am, I finished recording 10 movements! Sometimes his movements r so powerful, that I can see my tummy move. Happened before many times while I was sitting in MRT. I looked around to c if anyone else had noticed coz my tummy moved so obviously! Lucky no one seem to have noticed or thot it's prob me who moved, not baby. Haha
