about coconut I take Malaysian coconut fresh cut by uncle selling . I heard must take young n green coconut from old topic in mummysg. The one sold at supermarket is usually cut into hexagon shape . Sometimes it's yellow already too ripe?

Good to know I am not alone in the sleepiness thing . I feel so bad dozing off at work. And yeah water retention has been there for me for over a month now. My hands and feet tend to swell up. But the feet are more swollen most of the time. My prenatal yoga instructor advised me to lie on the bed & put up my feet against the wall for a few min before I go to sleep .... Trying that now. I also found that soaking my feet in warm water with some sea salt also helps .
How do you feel now ? Did you speak with your doctor?
Thanks for info on booking hospital bed , will ask my doc when I visit him this Saturday !! Seriously he should be telling us these things !!!
About the undies , I read somewhere that it is a good idea to wear Mens underwear rather than the big granny ones, as the double layered crotch provides more support.
Where do you buy the wash proof mattress protector. I very afraid that what if my water bag burst when I am in bed, it will spoil my mattress !!
Also I am thinking of buying adult diapers , so if my water breaks at home I can still go to the hospital in a taxi, other wise the taxi uncle will be very displeased if I dirty his taxi !! Hee hee!! I guess I may be over thinking things
Hi all mummies!
I have good news! I had delivered my lil princess last nite at 7.25pm thru c-section. It was a wonderful experience n both me n baby are fine. just dat baby is now in nicu to be monitored n to gain weight.
I had to deliver her ASAP as d blood flow from d placenta to baby wasn't going well n my doc was worried dat baby is not getting enough oxygen. Thankfully baby is well n strong enough to breathe on her own without any help.
I can't wait to go n see my lil miracle! Once they take off this drip I will go n see her with my hubby. N amazingly I managed to produce almost 15ml of colostrum for her! I can't believe it just now when d lactation consultant helped me to express d colostrum. Even her was surprised dat I managed to produce dat amount when I only had delivered thru c-sect last nite!
Hahahaa really didn't expect to be able to see my lil princess so soon! N to think dat I have not't complete d things dat I still need to buy. Hahaha already gave hubby a list of things to buy so hopefully he is able to get them.
Well have a long weekend mummies! your turns will come next to join d motherhood club! Hee hee take care all!
Lizasaifi!!!!! Congrats!!!! I am so happy for you that both mummy and baby are safe!!!!! Well done babe!!!
And wow you brought your pumps there or rent from the hospital? 15ml is wow!!!!!! Considering that it's the next day after delivering!
Do post pic of baby when she is discharged yah! you are the first dec mummy who has given birth! Coooollll!
Omg congratz Liza! Im really excited and happy for you!! It must be so wonderful to be able to see your little princess! I think dec mums here are pretty worried for you when you didnt update in the forum, and yet you gave us a good news! So you prepared your hospital bag like breast pump etc before you were admitted? How long was the c-sect? Anyway, take good rest and enjoy your precious moments with your loved ones!
Anyone going for the Babyexpo this weekend? Im planning to go later in the afternoon and Im still kinda undecided to buy a traditional pan/steamer for boiling of bottles etc or to buy an electronic steriliser. Hmm..
And also anyone intend to store baby's cordblood?
Hi MamaDT n allele!
Thank you for d wishes. Hahaha actually I never prepare anything cuz it's last minute emergency c-sect. Hahaha so was quite unprepared. Nonetheless all is well n I'm doing alrite.
D lactation consultant used a syringe to collect d colostrum. it's yellowish in color n very thick in consistency. Its so precious since it contains a lot of good elements for baby. I'm really surprised I can produce dat much of colostrum after just 1 day.
D c-sect took less than 1 hr from preparing me to be numbed half bodied until d time they finished stitching me up again. after dat I was sent to recovery room n by 9.30pm I was back at d ward on my bed.
I will write my birth story when I have d time mummies! thank you so much for all your concerns n wishes for me. Supposed to be a December mummy but now I'm an October mummy! Lolz we can plan so much but God has better plans for us. Take care mummies!
Big congrats to you lizasaifi!!! Glad that all is going on well for you & your little princess! Even me can feel your excitement on becoming a new mum.
Meanwhile, do continue to take good care and rest whenever you can thou I know it's not easy.
My warmest wishes to you & family on your new addition! Cheers!!!
Congrats to you lizasaifi!! So glad that you and baby are safe and healthy! So happy to hear good news here as more and more mummies give birth.. You being the first. Look forward to see your princess photos and meanwhile take care!
Lifting up the legs help to improve the condition too. Which yoga center did you go to?
I have signed up mine at mother & child and after attendng a few lessons once weekly, i really feel more energetic and i can sleep better at night too.
Today is a blessing day too~~ Hee...
So surprise that you gave birth already!! Happy that both of you are safe n healthy!!
Not too worry about the list you yet to complete, I m sure your husband will take care of it...
Rest more while you can, your busy days start soon...
Looking forward to heard your birth story later ya?
Take care & congrat!!!

Mreow mreow, i guess I am going to buy something like waterproof cot sheet, it is main for baby to use... I also not sure... Haaa
The main idea is not to leave stain on the mattress, because there is no way for me to wash n dry the mattress.... And save trouble to change bedsheet again n again... Imagine how many times I need to change if unfornaturely kena every alternate day?
Went to search online, saw there is one type that one side is cotton and the other is pvc waterproof.... Sleep on the cotton surface should be fine right? I am not too sure.... Guess if the product made good for baby, it shouldn't be too bad for adult also? And it is washable by hand or machine.... Think will to place order online...
Those disposable one, I saw them selling in kiddy palace, guardian, it is light green or blue color, a very big sheet but fold into a rectangle size, around 5-7 pieces in one package, but cannot remember the price (i guess less than $10)... I recall them using in hospital was placed above the bed sheet....
MamaDT, ya, agreed... I bought 20 pcs adhensive which is two packs plus 10 pcs maternity loop... In case, not enough, will ask my husband or mother in law to buy, because can get it at the ntuc that near my house; if too much, keep for normal menses ....
Btw, will stock up some pads for normal use, as I read in some other threads saying that if flow not heavy after 1st two weeks can use the normal pads instead...
Luckystar, I think you can find the waterproof mattress protector at kiddy palace or robinson too... But not sure which type you want, you might need to ask around before you got it... For me, I am buying the same type for baby but for myself to use during confinement....

Congratulations Lizasaifi!! It must be such a joy to hold your baby in your arms . Hope the little one comes out of the nicu soon. How long will you be staying in the hospital ? Which hospital are you in?
Thanks ivyb on the tip about drinking water , will try that as well. I go to omsantih yoga , it is in Haji Lane .
Hello mummies, I'm quite new to this forum and my EDD is on 27 Dec 2012. I will be delivering at Mount A with C-section. Now I'm in my 29 weeks and my baby girl weigh around 1.4 kg ... hopefully baby can gain more weight towards the end I'm still working now and maybe taking maternity leave 1 wk before I deliver so can rest a bit. I also have swollen feet now and will go to see my doctor again on 6 November.
My dear Lizasaifi....
I was speechless when I saw your post.
Was realllly praying that everything is alright with you when you didn't post often recently... Cuz normally you & I are quite active!
Anyway I can't express how happy I am for you that things have turned out well for both you and your baby gal...
The other day we were just talking about whatever will happen will happen right?
and that God has plans for us all already?
looks like Allah did indeed have plans in store for you already...
And I'm so glad that everything has turned out good!
that your gal can breathe on her own & you can produce milk for her...
that is such awesome news.....
Take care lotss...
Allele, Im not storing the cord blood..
Most probably I'll be donating baby's cord blood to the blood bank!
Haha, I totally forgot that the baby expo is this weekend!
means its from fri-sun?
Ohhh, that type of mattress protector...
i understand now... Hehe
i think same as momopeachgal, I won't buy that...
my hubby say not necessary.
Nevermind, make him wash if any stain accident happen... Wahahaha
I'm expecting a baby girl and my edd is 19 dec. i'm planning to induce my labour around my 38/39 wks, about one week before my gynae leaving for his US trip. I've started to count down the weeks already and hopefully everything goes well smoothly as planned.
I also quite worried that i'm carrying a light weight baby and i heard eating more durians may boost up some weight. Not sure how true but I will give it a try since i've been craving for sweet things nowadays. heheee....
Luckystar: yups you r not alone, sleepiness i guess most of us r experiencing that I think if your colleagues see you dozing off they can understand too.. and yaps. i lift up my feet when i am sleeping but halfway thru the night i always tend to kick away the pillow.. so in e end my feet and ankles r swollen when I wake up in the morning.
lizasaifi: Congratulations Mummy!!!! glad that you and baby are fine! your baby girl will be healthy! and ya, was hoping to see your lil princess !! do post her pictures here!
ivyb: yeah i went to google and I realized yeah.. heartburn is also = acid reflux and yeah, i think chocolate is one of the cause of heartburn also.. o ya, dont eat too much oily and spicy stuffs will have heartburn too ^^ haha i just read about you saying th edurian thing. I think its true. heard from my friend she say her friend's baby is very small so doctor advise her to eat durian. indeed the baby grow faster in the womb becos the mother eat durian! but dont eat too much if not the baby mite get too big and its harder to push if you r going for vaginal birth
soymilk80: Hey welcome Mummy!!! wow.. I also will be delivering at Mount A! but I want to go for natural delivery. May I know whats the reason why you want to go for C Section and not natural delivery? Who is your gynae? and since you r going for c sect, if your baby is big i think should be okie right? if you want your baby to be big i heard that can eat durian. hehehe.. and by the way, my EDD is 18th Dec and expecting a baby boy
I dont intend to go to baby expo.. i think its too crowded lol
Mummies, Happy Weekend!!! tomorrow is Saturday and not Sunday. So happy =)
