Oic! The hospital bill must be quite shiong... So many days. But earlier better then later. If my baby still show no sign of coming out way after EDD, I'll b so worried. I'll b 37 weeks in 2 day's time and I still plan gathering with friends... Need to walk a bit of distance to meet up at the cafe some more. Hopefully baby dont decide to come out on that day!
Total I have gained 17kg+ and I have about 10 mote days to go.
So far I only get 1 time leg cramp, after I went for pre natal massage at my salon. Think the lady is not vy good in msg.
Subsequently, I get Malay lady to do pre natal msg n no leg cramp. )
Total how many kg you have gained? Hope that I can shed off the 17 kgs that I have gained. Cross fingers... Hehe
haha.. your friends can send you to the hospital if that really happens exciting eh? any strong feelings of baby wanting to come out in the 37th week?
Yes, EDD is 19 Oct but it's an estimated date and baby could come 2 weeks +- this date... I've got friend who delivered 35 weeks so it's just to be safe. My tummy is lower now and can feel sharp pain at vagina which means it's preparing for labour. Need to standby mentally
ytd night i kept experience braxton cramp... im in 36 weeks , already book for c-sec on 10 Oct.. hopefully can endure till that day.
Yes, my baby did that to me too.. whenever I turn to the right side to sleep, I will feel her movement as to express her discomfort. Once I turn to the right side, she will stop her kicking and stretching. Now my tummy is getting bigger and my t-shirt are getting 'shorter' from day to day, might be unable to cover my tummy i a week time now..
sigh I didn't sleep at all until morning 8am, and woke up in the afternoon. So frustrating. Was in a cranky mood this morning. Got to find a way to sleep better! Still have about 1 month to go. Seriously, last nite I was wishing baby would come earlier than his EDD and spare me a few days of torture.
hi ladies... have not't posted in awhile... i've delivered on 21st Sept 10:06am my baby boy was 36weeks, 3.16kg, 49cm in length, head circumference 34cm.
already had some bleeding a few days before that and was dilated by 1cm... on the 20th i had alot more bleeding than usual, doc said i was around 1.5cm dilated, asked me to induce that night. went home and packed my stuff and quickly tried to wash up whatever else i needed to wash (so many things not ready yet at that time bleah!). admitted at midnight, pill inserted around 12:45am. my hubby stayed in the observation ward with me... started feeling more regular contractions after that... tahan-ed the pain for as long as i cld, cldn't sleep the whole night... almost wanted to give in and take epidural arnd 6am, the nurse told me if i want to take epi, have to tell them asap as they have to call the anaesthetist to come from home as there aren't any docs in the hospital at that time... she said my gynae wld be in around 7plus am... decided to try and tahan till my gynae came in... they wheeled me to the delivery suite around 7, when he came to check me, end up i had only dilated to 3cm!!! he then burst my water bag as he said everything was moving too slow, maybe i was too tense from the pain. asked me if i wanted any pain relief as he said the pain was gonna get much worse after the water bag burst. decided to go for the epi... but had to wait another 30mins for the anaesthetist to arrive... the pain really hit me then was screaming like a mad woman... even the gas was not helping at all, my hubby was trying to get me to breathe thru the mask but all i wanted to do was scream... was having very bad contractions and the nurse said i was pushing, cld feel i was shitting too bleah!!!
when the anaesthetist finally arrived, i did not really feel much pain from the injection and needle as the pain from the contractions was just too great. the numbness set in not long after... felt so relieved and relaxed and sleepy. really wished i had taken the epidural earlier. the nurse checked me about 45mins later and said i had improved, had dilated to about 9cm by then. she then prepared me for delivery. asked me to start pushing on her instructions to get the baby moving along before she called my gynae to come back for delivery. pushed about 3 times with her. then the gynae came and i pushed about another 3 times with him and then i could hear my boy's first cry... such an amazing feeling. my gynae did not cut me as he felt my baby was small enough, ended up with only a very small tear and about 2 stitches.
stayed at Thomson for 2 days. discharged last friday. single ward. they did not have the single ward available at first when i delivered, had to stay in a 2-bedded ward for a few hours before they had a single room available. my total bill was about $5k plus, $2100 can claim frm medisave, the remaining $3k plus by cash. yesterday my boy went for his first visit at the pediatrician, did the jaundice test as he was more yellow... end up he had to be admitted back for phototherapy... hopefully he can be discharged tomorrow... i miss my baby boy! went to visit him earlier today... looking better already.

Congrats, theknees! you described the entire procedure so vividly. Haha. Hope your baby get well soon and can go homevwith you
Yinching, Yup, I'm very excited about baby's arrival and yet afraid of the labour. This preg hasn't been easy on me. Hopefully labour itself won't b too bad. Counting down to EDD!
I now put a folded blanket at the arch of my back and my baby is more guai, not kicking me too much or too hard anymore. I guess this makes him feel more comfortable.
good to hear that your baby feel more comfortable after putting a folded blanket at the arch of your back and not kicking you too much or too hard anymore. Yesterday my baby also didn't has too much movement or kick me too much when I sleep, at least I have a more relaxed and comfortable sleep.
