congrats to theknees!!! Glad both you and baby are safe and sound
me just went to see doc today... cos last nite till this morning keep having stomachache.. turn out that doc confirmed that contractions has started after using a machine test.. so he warn that i may give birth within this week.. and suggest i plan my c section date within this week..
baby is only 36 weeks today and weighs 3.43kg which doc says baby is ready for birth already.. so tentatively pushed forward my c section date to next tues on 4 oct... but warned me to observe and be prepared anytime from now..
so keeping my fingers crossed and praying very hard for smooth delivery.... =__________________=
im going for my last check up later, today is week 36 too... my c-sec is on 10 Oct so hopefully will not need to change date cuz my baby big too...
Congrats theknees!! good that it was a smooth delivery and hope your boy can come home soon My girl's bilrubin level was still below the quota so she did not undergo any phototherapy nor "suntanning" in the morning sun.
I was screaming and crying like a mad woman before the epidural and especially when the gynae burst my waterbag at 3cm too!! Muffled my screams and cries with the gas mask. I think I overdosed on the gas cuz I felt like I was almost on general anaesthesia.
I'm 37 weeks and yesterday's check up showed baby is 2.6kg. I guess he's on the light side for a boy. Really hope that he'll be out soon!
OMG I can't believe I am still pregnant! Lol~
Went for my gynae check up 2 days ago, 39 weeks 3 days pregnant then...
Put on a total of 20.2kgs *faints*
Baby boy's estimated weight is 2.8kgs... Am still 3cm dilated.
Gynae has scheduled me to be induced on the 3 Oct at 7 am, 1 day after my EDD.
No need to insert any drug, will only rupture my waterbag artificially to start contraction.
Doc said will take about 5 hours so I guess most probably will pop by afternoon?
Now I hope baby wouldn't come out before Monday, intending to bring my elder daughter to explorerkid this Sunday to celebrate Children's Day with her childcare centre.
3 more days to go!
i think your baby's small enough to go through normal delivery. if i were you i will still continue to do normal delivery cuz c-sect takes a longer time to heal. my baby was 2.5kg at 37 weeks but when delivered she was only 2.256kg. you can request for the midwife / nurse to not cut you and try to guide you to deliver without any tears, which is what i did had only about 3 small tears inside the vagina and no tear in the perineum. is your fluid level and all still ok?
The gas is odourless. But it makes you feel very light-headed when you inhale too much of it. My stitches have not't heal yet. Probably next week or the week after. First week plus was bad. I couldn't get my shit out and my vagina and labia felt like exploding. Now it's very irritating, itchy and somewhat painful. The painful part for me is peeing actually, followed by sitting then shitting. Still can walk .. haha
