MamaDT, I did not time how long I did for the nipple exercise, maybe just a few mins, at your comfort level, to get use to the baby 's sucking... For the breast massage, I did about 5 mins before bedtime... Lol~~
Lovepixie, jia you!!!
Love pixie , all the best !! Hope to hear your good news soon !! Fingers crossed , it should be a smooth delivery for you.
How is your exp getting induced ? How is the pain?
How many days are you going to stay in hospital ? How was your exp in Gleneagles?
Seems like I will end up delivering there as well as my new gynae works out of Gleneagles .
I might end up getting induced as well , if the baby doesn't decide to move down this week . My doc checked today , baby is not down enough , but the weight is already 3.1 kg at 37 weeks. If wait till 40 weeks , baby will be too big to deliver vaginally. So she said wait one week. Do squats daily , 80 squats a day . So if nothing by next week have to induce better.
Every thing seems so heavy n uncomfortable , can't wait for baby to come.
Pain is still bearable contractions 1 in 4 minutes. I keep my mind distracted from the pain by chatting n texting n facebook lol. This is substitute for epidural haha. Works for now.
That's good to hear that it is bearable !! You are a good role model for us
I am also thinking of going natural first , only if I cannot take it anymore, will I try epi !!!
I get to learn so much from all your exp
Hope your dilations get faster!!
If cant tahan pain go for laughing gas first. Private patients are spoilt for choice. Sometimes nurses offer gas or epidural like free candy. Haha. I'm trying not to succumb to epidural first.
Luckystar, I stayed for 4 days (3nights) bcos c sect. If you go thru natural delivery, should be 3 days (2 nights); if no complication...
Luckily, I no complication so far, should be able to discharge tomorrow... But need to wait for baby Kate check up for the jaundice... Will know the result tomorrow, hopefully everything is alright then she can go home with me together
Not sure about the bill size yet, hopefully won't cost me a bomb... Haha~~
The food are nice, remember there is confinement food which is not in the daily list of menu, but you can order also, it is inclusive in the package...
there's also a parentcraft session which you can attend after delivery, try to attend and it is very useful, the lactation consultant is a very nice lady...
Jia you Lovepixie! Hope are doing well now!
Wonder if KK has parentcraft lesson after delivery.
How's your wound so far babe?
Hope Lovepixie's induce is successful and that her little Bubba is out already...
Good to know that you have no complications and will be released soon ... woo hoo... must be so special to bring baby home. i cant wait to dialte soon. at work now, but dont feel like working at all. all i can think of is when baby will come
hope all goes well with little Kate's checkup !! lots of God Bless to her
the parentcraft classes is for all room type or only suite one? i have opted for the normal 1BD room, and not the suite. i hope they include parent craft in that as well. with so many dragon baby this year, i hope i can get the 1BD ... dont want the 2-4 BD rooms!!
i did the pre- registration yesterday so hopefully we should not have problems
no wait wait for dilation !!
how are you doing?
has the little one arrived ??
.... waiting for your news!!

@sze sze: do we need to register for the paretcraft lesson? do we need to pay?
@luckystar: same with me!! sitting in the office, but hoping that my little one can pop up soon! so lazy to work already, but no choice need to finish some works. when are you planning on maternity? i told my boss that i will take leave until my little one pop hahaha...
My maternity actually starts on 24th dec , whixh is my EDD . But I have some annual leave this year to clear out so starting on Thursday I am on leave !! Yippee !!!
Baby Gwen Out on 12:02 4/12/12 no epidural no vacuum. Tried latching for milk on one breast. Tired n keep fall asleep. 23 hours induce battle no joke.
Good luck mums!
do you think it is a good idea for doing a session of prenatal Jamu to induce ?
i am going for accupuncture on thursday , was thinking to throwing in jamu into the mix as well.
what do you think? is it a good idea or is it too much?
Congrats Lovepixie! You are so brave! I wish I can be like you... seems like your labour quite long ... look forward to see baby gwen pic and read about your birth story.
dont over stimulate your body.. find out some useful info Pre & Post natal care | momnbabystore
Congrats to you and Hubs!!
Hope Baby Gwen is doing well....
Wow, is your pain threshold high or just that it's bearable?
How's your check up today?!?
I'm not at Kandang Kerbau Hospital's TPS,
Being strapped to the CTG machine.
The bed too short for me, so uncomfy. Haha
sigh, later gotta do cervix check..
Any mummies here that not yet give birth, done the cervix check??
