Some updates about my week 39 and 6 days appointment today..
Kinda mixed emotions today.. today gynae did cervix check and he described my baby is still 高高在上, still enjoying her own sweet time sleeping up high in my uterus. When he inserted his 2 fingers into my cervix, i can feel that he really try to insert it deep to check and seems like not much difference from last week. No engagement.. in fact I also didnt have any sign of labour so far. Started to feel that baby going to stay there forever, reluctant to come out
So the next question was whether to be induced or not. He said either A)to be induced on tomorrow or B)we can let the baby stay in there for another week, or lastly C)to be induced after the one week of waiting. When we heard of to be induced on tomorrow, me and hubby were so shocked coz we dont expect to be so sudden! Haha.. Then we decided to wait for another week and if nothing happens then I shall be induced on 8/12 (Sat). So there goes my Dec baby!
Oh regarding to the skin-to-skin contact thing, I did asked my gynae and he said if i choose to let the fresh, slimy baby directly lie on my chest also can, if i want the baby to be cleaned first and have skin to skin contact later on also can, as long as we are happy and can be with the baby as long as we want. Haha.. that's for my case in Kandang Kerbau Hospital. Not sure if other hospital does the same practices or not.
Happy 1st Dec!!
It's december!!! Baby can come out anytime hehe as long as december!
@ivybb: i think i will tell my gynae i will opt for skin to skin more than 10minutes. I shall insist! Let's see what she said. Previously she said that the baby will feel cold, but from what i read, mummy's body temperature after that big big push will become very warm hence the baby can feel very secure.
@lovepixie: will you opt for skin to skin? Hopefully my gynae will agree. Hope your baby will engaged soon!
MamaDT.. Momopeachgal.. Thanks... Let's jia you for all mummies...

Omg omg omg my baby is 3.4 kg .. gained 700grams in 2 weeks!! Doc ask if I got eat durian or not. I scared baby too big Lata cant natural birth.. I better not eat too much from now on.. ctg scan is good nurse say baby moves a lot doc never say I when will deliver but just that will go by natural birth next Friday gynae appt go eat brekkie first
Morning mummies and happy 1dec!
Post too long can only rem some.
Sze sze, look forward to see your baby photos! And hear your story... all the best!
Was it ivyb who mentioned about the skin to skin contact thingy. .. I dint know there's this thing. How to opt for it ? Cos I thought usually after baby out they need to check baby weight etc and clean baby so if we opt Thstd will it hinder the process?
Some update about me... ydsy at 38weeks 2 days baby is 3.2kg .. but not engaged yet. Baby grow quite fast lately so gynae just warned me if wait until full term baby still no signs of labour send more than 3.5kg maybe more difficult and might then ask me want c-sect or not. Cos my gynae is pro natural so he still advise me to wait and see for one week. Strangely he dint mention about induce at all. When I ask him he said better to let it cone out naturally first. Cos I have not't engaged, induced might be difficult.
Hmmm I really hope to give birth naturally. Ydsy is my offiiCal last day ! Happy! Earlier on I've been telling baby to wait until I'm off work so I guess he's being very guai and let me finish my work with peace. But from ydsy I told him he can come out ... dont't let mummy wait too long... now a good weight...hope he really listens to me.... haha...
Now is a waiting time for all mummies! The month we've been waiting for... Jia you to all mummies!!
Happy December all mummies!
Sze Sze: so happy you r seeing baby soon!!
Allele: wow your baby very comfy in you... Heehee try talking to baby more heehee
IvyB: how's your cramp? Got more intense?
Lovepixie: you so cute heehee... Are you in labourward waiting for your turn already? Heehee
Mummies!! Jia you!! Hope our baby listens to us and b good boys and gals! ^^
Wah Momo, your baby now good weight to come out ... so happy! Faster talk to baby more!! you eat durian ? My whole family kept tempting me with durians for weeks! I told them I dont't want coz I scared baby to big.. Lol
Cherry Blossom: wow 3.2kg is nice! Head diameter is near 35cm mah? Hopefully you can go for natural your baby gains how much weight each week?
I read that induction is discouraged by WHO unless with medical reasons. The number of people using induction should not be more than 10%. It has some risks too. Maybe that's y your Gynae didn't mention
psycho baby come out see Santa Claus (acted by daddy) ! Heehee and got pretty and cute santarina (acted by mummy) to see! Hahaha
MamaDT, I dont dare to eat durian although I craved for it cos during my 35th week scan my baby is 2.7kg.. maybe I eat too much nutritious food lol.. I really scared I natural halfway have to go c sect.. doc die die want me go by natural first.. he never ask me induce .. n never mention baby too big for me.. only ask me is it I got eat durian.. maybe he also think that baby is growing too fast !!
Cherry blossom , your baby is of a just nice weight to come out ! Hopefully your baby comes out before due date so that no need induce .. n it baby is very guai really wait for you to finish your last day of work ..
Jiayou all mummies!!
Baby Kate is finally out at 0915 at Gleneagles, weight 2.835kg. Both mother & Baby are fine.
Now abit tire... Going to sleep soon, I will update my birth story later... It is wonderful experience!!!
Btw, the epidural injection not really painful and I think quite safe, so mummies dont worry if really need it to ease your pain

MamaDT and momopeachgal
My baby gains average of about 200g per week but last week he gains 300g in 1 week 3 days.. I also gained 0.7g minus baby weight. I asked doc is it I should eat less but he say no nothing to do with my eating. But I think last week I eat more unhealthy that's why. Hehe but I thought since pregnancy is ending might as well indulge.
I have a mini Christmas gathering with friends today! Have a great weekend!
Hi to d other mummies! Wow! December! It's finally here ya. Wld have been 39 weeks 3 days tdy if I'm still preggy. Lolz doesn't matter now since lil princess is here with me already. But I do miss being pregnant. Hehehe
Get ready for your turns mummies. Be prepared physically n mentally ya. Giving birth n getting into motherhood gonna take a lot of energy n will but you will enjoy it once you are with your baby in your arms.
All d best mummies n take care!
Congratulations sze sze.. so happy for you! Looking forward to listening your birth story. Wah exactly 1 dec!!
Cherry blossom, I ate both healthily n unhealthily for r past 2 weeks.. I have e same thinking as you, what thinking last few weeks so just eat whatever I like .
Who knows baby grow spurt...
Ivyb , yalo my baby big big .. I m quite worried i might c sect after natural delivery cos doc die die wants me go natural first
Mummies pray for me that I won't need to go thru c sect !!
Congrats Sze Sze and Hello Baby Kate
Hi mummies, thx for your concern but baby not yet engaged. Gynae Dr Vincent Tan advises me to induce on 3/12 if baby not yet out scared inhaled meconium. He told me meconium got risk to d brain. Make me scared. So on 3/12 I'm going to seek opinion with his colleague Dr Liu. I feel dr Liu more relaxed. If Dr Liu see no concern to wait till next week I will do so.
Today I went to eat cheesecake and Mille crepe before confinement. I had my pedi n manicure without painting nails just to keep fingernails short cos I dont want to scratch baby. tomorrow I will braid my hair then. Haha. After this 28 days can't do anything. Not even mask cos it's too 'liang'.
Congrats to you and your hubby!!!
Wow !! You popped exactly on 1st Dec . What timing mummy !!!
Rest of the mummies , we better brace up for our turns soon
Can feel the excitement in this forum !!
I went to doc for checkup today . I am 37 weeks now. Baby is already almost 3 kg. My BP is also high 164/80. So doc said might have the baby sooner coz high BP not good for mummy and baby. He said baby is already big size, so no need. To wait till 40 weeks. Can induce earlier . But I am still working , then how ? My mat leave starts on Thursday ,,,
Anyway he asked me to come in again on Monday to check BP, so fingers crossed . I want my bby to wait one more week . Coz my mum coming on saturday !!!
Tomorrow I got maternity photo shoot !! Excited !! Today I did hair and Manu pedi very relaxed ,,,
