So sleepy somemore.
Had your gynae check if you start dilating? Did you feel sharp pain at cervix?
yesterday was my 32wk check up... baby weigh 2.1kg..its classified average size...i find that though i eat durian alot i find the size of my baby is still average..anyway just hope he will gain a few grams or kgs until end month..my edd is 28/10 but because i'm c-sect i'm yet to choose the date...
any of you mums know beside eating durian to make baby bigger what are other foods should i eat???
Is this your 1st child? my EDD is on 29 Oct. if you are gg to c-section, have to be 2 weeks before your EDD. Im not sure beside eating durian, what other food to make baby bigger. my next checkup will be on 16 Oct, hopefully can grow more bigger cos my gynae said my baby abit small.
i did tell my gynae about sharp pain at my tummy too, he said as long not bleed then its ok. maybe the tummy is still expanding thats why will feel pain.
im also going for c-sec.
check with you gals, can we choose our own dates? need to pay extra?
anyone had brown discharge? i had a bit of a scare last week, suddenly had brown discharge, was having some cramps too. called the gynae and the nurse asked me to go down to the clinic. my gynae did the internal ultrasound scan, said my cervix has shortened already which apparently means it's like the beginning of the birth process... he then did a "manual inspection", said i have not't quite dilated yet but he felt that i have "softened" already. i was only 33weeks++, baby weight 2.5kg. he said that the extreme measures would be to either give my baby some steroids to make the lungs develop, or just let me give birth and end up my boy has to stay in the baby ICU. but he decided to take a more conservative approach and gave me alot of medicine, some hormone pills etc, which apparently will stop any contractions. i have to take it for 10days. until the baby is about 35 weeks. after which he said he will let nature take its course as it will be safe for the baby to come out after then. he gave me 9 days hospitalization leave as the meds give me very bad headaches.
i didn't expect everything would start so early! i thought the brown discharge meant something bad. i didn't quite expect the opposite! i'm so not ready... my hospital bag not packed yet... baby clothes not washed yet. milk bottles not washed yet. baby cot not bought yet!
Baby Superstore or Baby Kingdom
I'm buying one from Baby Kingdom. It can be adjusted to 3 different heights and if I plan to have 2 babies, then I'll get minimum 6 years usage out of it as a cot and after that I can convert it into a children's bed or sofa, which I think would make the investment worth it. Sigh, I was supposed to get a used one from my brother but my 2 year old niece is still attached to the cot, he said, so he wanted to buy me one and I told him I'll get it on my own, so it's also last minute for me.
This lady sells it really cheap but i hesitated to buy it because I'm not sure how good is the quality. I'm afraid it might collapse if my baby decided to jump in it. It's only $89 and it has wheels as what you're looking for. You should ask if the wheels has brakes. If not, if you put it in the corner of the room, it should be safe. I'm looking for wheels as well because some of them allow you to use it as a playpen too. You just need to adjust the height. Log In | Facebook. If you can't find the link here, go to Facebook and look for Motherlove Babytree. She's reliable and i've bought some stuff from her before but the only thing with this baby cot is, it's pre-order and not ready stock.
Buying a cot
For me, the price is one thing and aesthetic is important for me too. I need it to be able to match the colour scheme of my baby's room. After comparing and all, I've decided to get this one, Luna Cot (White) --> Baby Kingdom.
Initially, I wanted to get Bebe Dreami Cot but after calling them up, the customer service person said that the mattress for Bebe Dreami cot is also made from foam, which I wanted a better mattress for the cot. And for $110 I'm getting 9 pcs of bedding set, which I also dont't need. I'll sew pillow for my baby and I dont't need the bumper. I also dont't need the cot to be able to be changed into a junior bed as I already have a queen size bed when my baby can sleep on a bed.
If you dont't mind the colour, I thought this cot is a good buy --> http://www.babysuperstore.com.sg/ind...emart&Itemid=2 It's foldable if you need to keep it until the next baby arrives, if not needed. You just need to keep in mind that you need to spend extra if you intend to get a better mattress and bedding set. My brother told me he bought his baby cot at Robinson for $230 and a mattress for $150 from Kiddy Palace.
