If you can do natural birth, it's better to go natural. It's painful at labour but after that, you heal fast. Caesarean is a surgery n all surgeries come with risk. Also, after birth, the healing process is longer and more painful. The obstetrician cut thro 7 layers and need to stitch up 7 layers . My friend had emergency caesarean n the wound was so painful even 1 month after birth. For me, I'd rather just let the pain come at once n then heal faster. you still can take epidural so it's not as painful as natural birth without any pain relief.
Any mummies have recently giving natural birth or c-section at Kandang Kerbau Hospital? Can share with me? I like to know how much is the final bill? Cos I'm giving birth next month. I wanted to know more details.
Have you got baby mattress for baby cot/ crib? Where did you get it from? Would like to know where I can go to get cheaper baby mattress. Would like to buy the firmer kind. Any suggestions?
Went for my gynae appt this morning.
Currently 38 weeks and 3 days. Cervix already opened and 3 cm dilated.
Gynae gave me the 2 options.
Give birth today by artificial bursting of waterbag or continue waiting.
I told her I prefer to wait and asked her roughly when, she said anytime within the next 5 days but not confirmed.
My baby's estimated weight is still 2.6kgs but am not that concerned cause my daughter is 3.66kgs at birth though her last measured est. weight was 2.8kgs
Maybe my daughter happened to have a small tummy and chubby face, arms and legs :P
I already told myself after my first delivery that if I ever give birth again, I shall try to delay admitting into the hospital as much as I can.
After admission, you will be strapped to the CTG machine to monitor contraction/baby's heartbeats.
Then after your waterbag is artificially broken, you cannot eat or drink...
Last time didn't know, ended up 'tied' to the bed to feel the discomfort with nothing to distract.
I couldn't endure and jumped out to walk a couple of times and the nurse -.-""""""
Walking when you are in labour will not only help to distract yourself from the pain but also helps to increase the dilation so I think I will walk walk walk walk walk when in labour this time until really cannot endure then go hospital.
I keep feeling sharp pain inside vagina when walking is this consider it diliating?
Yeap yeap.. me have been feeling this pain whenever i take a few steps since 30 weeks which is 5 weeks ago... Went GYN follow up today and baby weighs at 3.27 kg at 35 weeks... Doc suggest to consider giving birth earlier if the pain is too much to bear... @______________@
I went to checkup on yesterday. 35 weeks, my baby is 2.5kgs. But my baby very naughty, her head turn up again. Last month checkup her her head already turn down, but dont know why this month her head turn up again.
My gynea book me in c-section, she told me if baby's head not turn down 2 weeks later, then may need to c-section. Cannot wait for natural.
Appointment csection will be on 12/10/2011...
Hi mummies, any idea let baby's head turn down again... I actually hope can be natural. Cause my first boy was natural delivery.
Hello all, I'm new to this. Not sure if this is the right place to post. I'm expecting an oct baby too. EDD is on 16 oct. So far the pregnancy has been great, went for a scan today, and baby is in head down position.
I would like to ask if anyone is doing belly binding, would like to know their experience. And where i can get bengkung. I interested to get one.
Yoga, cat position, exercising on birthing ball can help. Moxabustion is also a good alternation. Doctor can also help to turn the baby. Hope it all gies well for you.
