My husband job doesn't allow him to have last min urgent leave & my mum need take care of my 3 yrs boy so guess I will b delivering all alone.. For my 1st child husband was by my side.. Feel so lost & worried now.. Anyone same as me?!
Any siblings or sisters to help?
My hubby told me in advance that he mite not b able to accompany me into delivery suite.. Coz his job is 1 person per shift., but he will try to make arrangement.. If worse come to worse., I will have to deliver on my own.. Tho it's our 1st baby, but i have to come to terms w it if he really cannt make it..
Tts y he always Talk to baby n ask any to come out during his off days or before he head to work.. Hahas.. Coz he wants to be there to witness it..
Actually why not ask your hubby to check w his colleagues if anyone can be on standby to takeover his shifts if you suddenly go into labor? If his colleagues are agreeable, then perhaps he will be able to take urgent leave and be with you..
My pre-reg is done .. Hubby will try to arrange to rush dwn if possible.. If not I will have to get my mum.. Coz she stays near NUH..
Hubby says even if he tries to get pple to rush dwn to take over his shift.. He will also need another 2-3 hours to rush dwn.. So yar..
xuezhen - wow, 2-3 hours is a long time! but he should be able to make it. i waited about 2+ hours for my hubby to come as well. I called him at 3am when he ended work (but can't leave cos need to clean up and do closing). He finished at 4am, WENT HOME first cos my older bro said he would send him over. And guess what? My older bro was at Bishan watching the Euro match. 5am when doctor came to check me and I was already 6-7cm dilated + the contractions getting more and more intense, my bro have not't reached home yet. LOL. My hubby wanted to take cab down but my bro was on expressway reaching home already. By the time they came should be half to 45mins later? I kept telling baby to wait for papa to come. Well, all the best to you. Hope your hubby can be there with you during delivery!!
I am used to my hubby's schedule n working shift.. As a chef.. Really bobian.. He has responsibility.. After all these years.. Gt used to it.. But he promised that he will try to make time to spend w his darling son.. So I shall not so greedy n expect more..
I pray your hubby is able to get leave on this important day !!!
My hubby was also busy for his working shift therefore didnt see my birth!! ahh
Yar.. My hubby is praying super hard too.. He wants to b there.. But if really cannt also bobian..
I delivered my baby Without my hubby. He was in shanghai working and I was two weeks early. My water bag burst and had to do emergency c sec. My mum went in with me into the operation theatre. I was very upset but nothing really could do about it. He arrived three days later.
Would suggest that you arrange some one to bring you to hospital so that can arrange your admission. If your mum is fine in going into the delivery suite, get her to be there. You will need one moral Support. At least you won feel afraid and someone to give you courage.
Very hard to approach others for help as dont know when baby will pop.. sigh..
Ask your husband boss to make exception? Or select a date to get induced?
Hopefully you won't ve to deliver alone.. Coz personally i dont tink im able to do it.. Very dependent on hubby since e starting of my pregnancy.:/ Hubby werks 12 hr shift too.. But he already informed his manager about my due date.. So for tis whole month there is always atleast another person werkin with him.. Furthermore hubby force me to stay with my mum tis whole month..dont want me to b alone at hm. Summore my mum's place(tpy) is nearer to his werk place(balestier) & e hospital(nuh) compare to our place(punggol).. just hope when i do go into labour hubby is with me..
Hi mummies, hav you all heard about 'tai jiao' before? you can actually keep talking to your baby to come out on those date your hubby is available. my friend n me tested it before it work. Doing tai jiao also can help your baby's brain develop and create good bonding. what i did for my 1st baby was i keep read ABC to him and sing song for him. When e time i delivered him, he keep crying in e delivery suit. Suddently i remember e tai jiao book say try to talk to your baby. So i sing n read abc for him. He stop crying immediately and start finding where e sound from and after that enjoy in peace. Now my boy was about 4y/o, he has no problem in reading. In fact he like reading, and he have a very good memory.
Jz to share my experience, wish all e mummies can get e benefit frm tai jiao.
that's y the nurse say to me also.. Ask me talk to baby.. Now in my 39 weeks but still no sign.. sigh..
you may think about induce if you really scare.
better to have at least one helper....
I really miss those days where I witness both my son and daughter's birth. It was a wonderful experience. All the best to all the mummies! My respect goes to you for all the pain and hardship you have to go through for our wonderful babies.
