I going to faint ... baby only 1390gram @ 30 weeks... Underweight ttm ....((
Hi all! Just came back from Kandang Kerbau Hospital.baby weight about 1.6kg now at 30weeks. ^^ doctor says baby rotate , head now below.
carisella: through you are busy, but for the sake of baby you need to do extra effort . Water is very important, i went thru website. They says that drinking enough water, helps to renew and expel the current water(old ) in the water bag. Its good for yr baby and yr water level.
Sleeping and eating as well. Dont skip meal. Now at this stage, wadever you take in, baby is takig too. If you dont eat, means you dont let baby eat also... So must jiayou! No time or busy or no appetite also must eat. ^^
carisella and chocobaby, i only start wearing the socks when my feet got swollen last weekend. so far, it seems to help to reduce the swelling . but this sat will be seeing gynae, so will ask him and update you again.
carisella, i think your feet swell is coz of insufficient water plus too much walking. you need to up your water intake, otherwise, you will have bad water retention. water retention may or may not go away even after delivery! Also, it is not good to skip meals. there is research showing that if baby lack of nutrients while in mummy's womb due to mummy skipping meals or on diet, it is likely the baby will face weight problems (obesity) when they are older.
i dread to find out my baby's weight in this sat's visit. really scared gynae tell me baby is super overweight again!
charlotte, maybe can try taking some durians and ice cream. it will definitely help your baby to put on weight.
Rabbitmummy - that's what my husband say the men usually do. But only give to family members & close friends. If not bankrupt ! Lol... Dont get expensive ones , just normal cigars.
Charlottetan - yah try durians! I think it works. Oh n the cookie from the link i shared, is $3.50 each. I think can get cheaper...
Ive been eating durians since 1st trimester! At one point i had them everyday then my last check up, i cant remember baby's weight but it was just right. Now i cut down to 3 times a week.
If doc thinks that's best then just do it. Just rest & dont over exert yourself ok. If you dont really like durians then try other forms of it. Maybe will work too. Durian puffs? I ate not cos of baby's weight, cos i'm greedy! Lol. Just love the taste so much!
Charlotte, dont't worry... my elder girl was less than 1.2kg at 32 weeks!! Even tinier than your baby right now. She didn't gain much over the subsequent weeks so in the end my gynae gave me hospitalisation leave 1mth before due date to rest at home and let baby grow fatter. True enough it worked, by the time i reached 40 weeks she was 2.7kg. On the small side for EDD baby but still healthy and ok ...
Right now this current baby is also underweight and behind the weeks in terms of growth. I'm not very worried as the sister came out fine... more worried right now that she hasn't turned head down, dont't want to have 2 wounds!! Episiotomy from the 1st pregnancy and c-section this time... =(
Are you drinking those maternal milk like Anmum, Similacmum etc? Those really help to pile on the weight. That time with my elder girl, i drank only fresh milk until gynae said baby is too small, then i switched over to drinking Anmum 2x daily. Think it really helped!
and today.. almost forget to take lunch.. i thot i ate already actually.. then i realised.. =-=" i have not't eat at all..
I believe you are working in yr family business right? No matter what, stay cheerful and a beautiful mood ok? Take care kk
charlottetan - Yes, must quickly go and take now, otherwise no chance ... Even got scretch mark, they will photoshop I guess.
Rabbitmummy - Why got to do with ugly ? 3D scan of baby .. I will be doing at parkway east hospital, coz cost cheaper. $58.90 only. But has to get a ref letter from your gynae ya. I check with Thomson and it cost $189 for 3D, $279 for 4D.. so exp..
This coming sat got to visit my gynae again.. again need to check with him my baby weight.. Haha.. I still eat durian recently.. Hopefully baby weigh fine.
Oh ya, I think I will get sweetest Moments for baby full month celebration. As this yr they hav a new "Rabbit" layout for the box. Limited Edition, quite nice.. Reasonable price too..
My leg swollen too.. Could be walk too long already.. Tummy more and more huge, me more and more slow movement..
