Hi mommies who are due in Aug... anyone going on leave or taking Maternity leave already???
Hello All...my baby's due in August too. it's my first baby. getting nervous but excited as I count down the weeks.
ML from Aug 1st .....
ML from Aug 1st .....
any moms from October ?
How big is your baby now? My gynae also said mine might be around 3.4kg during birth, which is consider quite big. I'm considering C-sect.. have not decide. Gynae said if my baby choose to come out now, then she's still quite small, so can still go natural.
So initially your EDD is not Aug 8?
Hello All Mummies,
My baby's due in Aug'12. it's my first baby, getting nervous but excited. Planning to take leave early as too tired standing
and walking around.
I'm considering natural delivery. Takes how long fully recovery ? dont't know what to bring when admitted hospital later.
Im now 33 weeks.. EDD 26 aug. On Hospitalisation leave all the way till delivery (about 4 weeks).
super nervous and scared.. havent pack hospital bag, havent bought sanitary pads & diapers!
relax french kitty baby is not going to come out now. take your time to prepare what you need, panicking would not get things done
Clady, i gave birth to my girl naturally. I had episiotomy so had to stitch up and it took about 2 weeks for the pain and discomfort at the vagina to go away. But for your body to fully recover should take an average of 6weeks. I'm on my 3rd week after birth now and I feel normal. Just that I will feel easily tired from doing things. My hips and pelvic are still a lil stiff, but bearable, though not as much compared to the previous weeks when it hurt so badly.
mer17, i gave birth to my girl naturally w/o epi and she was 3.570kg at birth. Somemore she was only 37w2d when she decided to come. Imagine her weight if she reached 40w! *lucky* and during her scan on 34w, she was already estimated 3.2kg. For your baby, 32w only 2.2kg, i seriously doubt she will go until 3.4kg at full term..
Anw, it's best to try for natural cos if you dont even try, how you gonna know you cant push your baby out? The weight is only an estimate anw. Might turn out to be lighter? If you can go for natural, just go for it..

i believe this might help...
disposable nursing pads
Thanks Jemimah for typing out the list I think we need to bring Marriage cert also (from what I read in MAH admission letter).
Zaclin29: wah your EDD nearer than mine.. hahaha same I keep on takin my own sweet time.. and also because I'm now having alot of discomfort in my pelvis & back, walk or stand too long cannot, so quite inconvenient for me to go buy those last minute things like Ru yi oil, diapers, milk powder (standby first), etc etc..
Wish you a smooth & speedy delivery !
Hi mummies, am a aug mum too. 34weeks already but placenta still low lying.. Anybody knows what can helps in improving? Like walk more or? Read in the net, nothing can be done but depends on the growth of the womb
you may want to try to sleep on your right. I have low-lying placenta during the earlier stage (19~20th week)... I read from one of the threads that sleeping on the right helps to "push" the placenta up.. Coincidentally, I have been sleeping on my right.. during one of the scans in my 28~29 weeks, gynae told me placenta is not low... so you might want to give it a try...
Tuttut, thanks for the suggestion, will try it.. Hope it can move up, dont really want a c sect..
Any idea what to avoid doing too? My dr say avoid squatting too much.
