This is a discussion on EDD April Mummies within the Year 2012 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by Anxious31 Wow, it's great to b eating fruits!! My intake of fruits very little... I eat lots ...
I am trying to control a healthy diet cos' I dont't want my baby too big.. I want a natural delivery without epidurial. My objective...
I really can't wait to pop this little devil out... so I can ... indulge into my favourite, Sashimi... Oysters.... Omg .. I am going craze thinking of that..
n i also got the same cravings.. keep drooling when i think about sashimi and raw oysters.. i was telling my hubby i will definitely go for sashimi buffet after giving birth.. lols.. ^^
If everything goes well, I hope to go for a natural delivery w/o epidural too.
Hope that baby will make space for e placenta to move up...
Can you see your placenta from your recent scans?
Haha.. But if you read up more find out more, be prepared you won't be scared . I start talking to my baby say that I m going to give birth naturally without any help... so he/she must now build up stamina to help me along haha.. So I dont't need to push too hard also .. Hehe
I ever thought of going for hypnobirthing.. Haha ..
eh.. how do you know its your placenta? i'll have my next checkup on saturday so i'll prob ask the doc when he does the scan for me.. lols..
oh ya.. anyone of you intending to do the cord blood bank thingy? its so expensive but since it can be used for me, my hubby, baby or even baby's siblings, think it might be worth it.. if you all getting it, which company will you be taking? i understand there's one company that saves the cord blood in multiple units or something.. seems to make more sense coz cannot re-freeze it after thawing it..
I saw my placenta just last week baby was in sitting position, placenta was just beside it.
Anxious31.. i never notice the placenta.. haha my focus only on my little one. haha.. If you are planning to go for natural delivery w/o epidural. you got to start planning already.. get yourself prepared..mentally & psyhically. Learn to relax yourself now.. cause if you r those who panick easily, you dont't have the energy in the end. I will be going for the pre-natal yoga in my 6th month... this will help also. Determination very important...
You must tell your hubby that no matter how painful you look.. dont't request for epidural. Haha .. most of my friends ended up with epidural when their hubby can't bear to see their wife suffer... banging their head on the side handle.. I can imagine...
I told my hubby ... If I can ... I will laugh and laugh to poop my little one out .. haha .. since I love to laugh so much ... rather than screaming right... hehe ... Laughing destress the baby ... so easier to come out ... Opps .. that's my crazy idea ... ignore me ... hehe
My friend who delivered 2.7kg baby did it naturally without epidural. She initially wanted to try without the jab, cos she never feel the pain yet when the doctor ask her if she wants the jab. But when the pain comes she was crying for the jab but gynae tell her it's too late, the jab needs time to take effect n the baby is coming out already. So end up she only delivered with laughing gas without Jab. Really hero. she SMS me me at 6am that she might b delivering today. 9am baby pop out.
Her baby is cooperative n pop out fast.. Her sis was in labour for 12hrs. Wanted without epi too, then end up the cervix open too slow, no choice, got to put epidural. However 12 hours passed n cervix is still not opening enuff, then emergency c sec..

Cord blood will b doing .. But think there r two companies: stemcord n cordlife.. have not't read up on them yet but I remember reading a thread in the forum for the difference. Heard that can use medisave to pay a little, no need all cash..
This is the Puku Glass Milk Bottle 150cc I mentioned...
hehe when i got preggie I go n google see where did the baby come out from.. Wow amazing.. The baby can squeeze tru the tunnel before coming out ..
