congratulation. your #2 boy or girl? when you have your #2?
How are you coping with your pregnacy? Congrats on your #2 and all the best for your delivery. #2 should b easier. Do note that he might come out earlier.
Currently she is going to Rainbow Childcare and Development Centre at Boon Lay Shopping Centre.
She started on the 6th Sept, about 2+ weeks after her 2yo birthday.
Insomnia for the past few days cause of all the usual pregnancy discomforts. Went to see my gynae this morning, 3cm dilated... given the option to burst waterbag today or continue waiting. I have chosen to wait, daughter seems to have fallen sick and somehow (especially after knowing didi is arriving) I feel guilty towards her.
She hasn't adapted to the new environment and still appears miserable, I am so worried that didi's arrival will affect her even more or she will feel hurtful.
How do you cope with the 2 kids? And how are their arrangements like?
Anyway, we had the same problem too. We prep our son very early to let him know that he is going to have a di-di soon. And on the day, that #2 was born, we gave ge-ge his favourite toy and told him that its a gift from di-di. Apparently that gift does help alot.
dont feel miserable ok? that will make your last stage of pregnacy rather unpleasant. you should stay happy. Congrats that you are already 3cm dilated. So I guess boy-boy will be due anytime soon. What are plans for you? going for natural birth? how big is boy-boy now?
I am coping well with the 2 boys. Bcoz ge-ge goes to sch for full day. So i only need to look after him for about 2hrs a day before my hubby comes home.
*Mental note to self to get a gift from the hospital for jiejie* How was your second labour? I have all sorts of weird sensation at the tummy area that I cannot differentiate what is what anymore...
Boyboy is 38 weeks 5 days today, though tempted to induce but I feel it's still best to let him decide on his own birthday. I am not doing confinement again but this time I shall be going to my mom's place in the day cause I am considering to engage a massage lady. Closing factory after this delivery so I guess it will be good to 'push the womb' back.
Morning me and my husband will send jiejie to childcare then we shall pick her up at about 5pm. Either bring didi along to pick jiejie then head home straight or pick jiejie back to my mom's place first.
Anyway flu and cough is part and parcel of childcare. you can expect her to get sick as long as 6 months.
ya gift for jie-jie from di-di really does help. Maybe see what are her interest, and something that she does not have yet at home, then use it as a gift from di-di.
my 2nd labour was fast. In hospital at 1pm. Out from the delivery suite at about 6pm. first was horrendous, was in the delivery suite for 17hrs.
you should try to rest as much as possible during confinement period. Your body really need those rset.
ya i guess its a good idea to stop at two. I also cannot take it . Time to close factory. haha.
Daughter has been especially clingy and cranky recently and I am already drained from my heavy pregnancy alone.
Dr Goh has scheduled me to induce on the coming Monday, I asked how long will it take and she said about 5 hours after rupturing of the waterbag.
My EDD is this Sunday, last checked 2 days ago... still 3cm dilated.
Hopefully my labour won't take too long, inducing at 7am and maybe my sis can drive my mom and daughter to the hospital in the afternoon.
How did your elder react when he saw didi for the first time?
ya i think your girl is really smart. She must have sensed that you are going to deliver , so more clinky. Your hubby got help you ease the load?
when my elder son see di-di for first time, he was quite fascinated. I think he reacted well to him. Now he loves his di-di so much . every day before going to sch, will go to kiss di-di.
