dont think HL is = ML. That is additional leave from coy policy. usually employee will get 60days of HL per yr..
Take care ya... hav a good rest at home relaxing..
just now just had sharp pain on my left rib.. dont know whether baby kick or just sudden movement.. i really cant open my eyes... and tell myself to deep breathe.... it was scary for that 1 min.. now is a numb pain... i think this 3rd trim have alot of scary moments more... its really good to rest instead....
my co-colleague who gave birth before told me that if i really feel unwell and immobile, can request gynae to issue hospitalisation leave (if i've exhausted my sick leave). in this way, i can take my ML only right before i give birth.
plus for the 4th month ML, try negotiating with your boss to see if you can take stagger in 2012, cos there will be times we need to bring baby out for injections and medical appts etc.
in the meantime, eat well everyone! =D
Dont worry, I told you before, my eldest girl was only 1150 g at 32 weeks. Even less than your baby right now. We were very worried too, and gynae sent me for another detailed scan at 37 weeks cos she was only 1.9kg at full term. The scan showed that everything was fine, except baby is small-sized. in the end she came out on her edd (full 40 weeks) at 2.7kg.
Btw my gynae also gave me hospitalisation leave all the way until baby is born. I believe it worked because my work is very, very stressful and I never gained weight when pregnant. Being able to rest at home without doing much really helped baby to grow. Make good use of your hospitalisation leave to eat and sleep. Baby will surely grow.
My girl weighed even less than yours right now, and she is perfectly fine. So your baby will likely be okay too, as she is almost 1.5kg already.
My gynae only told me to eat more fatty foods and ice-cream, drink milk, etc. And most importantly, try to sleep after eating! If mummy is well-rested baby will grow.
actually, from this point onwards, even if your baby just put on 100g a week, she will still hit 2.4kg at full term. Which is an okay weight for a full-term baby. Why your gynae says it's necessary to deliver early?
My gynae is the opposite, he believe that the mother's womb is the best place for baby to grow, and true enough during the last 3 weeks from 37-40 she had a growth spurt and put on almost 300g every week! This despite me having low amniotic fluid as well...
You should consider seeking a second opinion too.. as some gynaes just want to bring the baby out earlier because they have already seen you for the "quota" of your package price. Sad, but true.. They will tell you that it's easier to fatten up baby outside, blah blah but I believe a gynae who has the mother and baby at heart will not recommend early birth for no good reason.
thanks babybull your advice is soso informative that makes me feel so much better... doctor say most lkely its my placenta problem that caused baby to b underweight... so she suggested induce birth since she is not taking much nutrients when not bring her out n feed her when she is out... thats what she say .. anyway... your doc give you hospitalisation leave isit consider maternity leave? my friend told me one month prior your edd doctor's hospitalisation leave will b consider as ML... isit true???
That time I was seen at KK so they are not chasing me to give birth .
ANd nope, hospitalisation leave is not counted as maternity leave. So you get a good long break. =)
Maternity Leave - Ministry of Manpower
You have to inform your employer at least one week before you start taking maternity leave.
I'm in govt sector too, and for the hospitalisation leave, you have to ensure that the letter from your gynae clearly states that it is HOSPITALISATION LEAVE. Otherwise sometimes the HR ppl a bit cockeye and will deduct from your medical leave; after exhausting it they will consider you on no-pay leave.
In my case, I just informed my boss after I delivered and they sent an email to the HR letting them know that I'm officially on maternity leave, so my maternity leave begins on my baby's date of birth. Then only filled in the forms after I went back to work.
!! GAWD!! I think she turned already ==" cos i can feel this pushing up on my ribcage feeling as if got constipation and then feel very cramp!! rawr!!
Omg, i sart to have cramps. Painful like contraction!
hmm to think of it maybe its easier birth... is that better?
i remember the doc says 2 plus kg babies are much easier to give birth..
so dont feel too down.. still have another 4 or 5 weeks to go!
i put on weight .. sigh.. 2 more weeks doc sure say me..
my tummy looks so much bigger now.. like bloated....
