It is better to be early than late. We dont't want to rush the packing when the time comes.
I will be having my c sec on 22 Jun. though placenta moves up, as it is a borderline case, Dr suggested c sec to prevent double whammy in the event that I need to have emergency c sec if the baby cannot come out.
Today is 36 week 6 days & baby is currently 2.7kg. I hope to hit 3kg next week.
try avoid eating foods that are high in salt or sugar, I have no problem with water retention as i drink atleast 2 litre of water everyday, but yest i drank a cup of 100 plus, less than 2 hours time, both my feet n legs swollen very badly..till now its still quite swollen..hope it gets better by end of e day, guggling down lots of water now!
I am at 34 weeks coming 35.. But at week 32, baby was only at 1990grams.. Hopefully, my gynae will give me a satisfy weight for the baby.. My hubby is nagging say I so chubby no use, baby so small.. But honestly, I have not eat well or gain much weight due to all the uncomfortable symptoms..
Any mummy gt the checklist of what to pack for hospital bag n what to buy for preparation of nursery?? I am afraid I will forget to buy certain stuff..
Short Sleeve & pants
Mittens & booties
baby rocker chair
2 front open dress
disposal nursing pad
1 set of mitten & botties for baby
1 set of clothes for baby to go home
tooth brush & tooth paste
1 set of going home clothes for mummy
hospital adminstration letter

I will be delivering at Gleneagles.
Hi madangel, I will be delivering at Gleneagles.
Hi engravedx, my friend's baby is around 3.5kg & head too big. She diluted till 9cm & need to go for emergency c sec. Double whammy. So since Dr advises me to go for c sec, I better take her advice.
Hi xuezhen09, dont't worry. baby puts on more upwards the end of pregnancy. Plus baby above 2.5kg is considered healthy wt. you can refer to baby center appl for checklist. Some of the items I ignored as they may not be needed. My durian, eggs, chicken, beef diet works. Will have to control my wt cos put on 18kg till date.
Hi Paul, I just found out today that it has moved up. Slightly above 5cm. Mine is back lying hence c sec is possible. If front lying, it will be dangerous for op too. Though there is a still a chance for natural delivery after my final check up next mon but Dr said it be slim. She dont want me to take the risk. My Dr is quite careful & kiasu type, so she prefers the safest choice for her patient. I am already mentally prepared.
Wa, engravedx, your stretched marks look serious! Better apply lots of cream/lotion/oil so that they can fade nicely. If itchy, it's probably PUPPP. A friend's friend had the same thing and ended up induced two weeks earlier cos too itchy to continue! A friend's baby is also big and she was induced two weeks early too.
My doc just said my baby's head is three weeks bigger although the rest still ok. Now about 3kg at 35 weeks. I'm scared that a bigger head means a more difficult delivery too.. I also gained 3 kg in the past 2.5 weeks, now totalling 13kg. I think I gained a lot in the past week cos somehow I couldn't stop eating!!!
I know according to the web, the weight seems okay.. But my hubby still worries, coz he dont c me gaining weight..
Thanks madangel, your checklist is of great help (:
Hi Xuezhen, when's yr next checkup?
your Stretch markS SeemS Seri0uS..
My SiS enc0unter that kinda iSSue t00...
She managed t0 fade it away by uSing bi0- 0il.. mayB you can c0nSider & try...
Wow, till now lucky I gain 16kg only, baby only 2.3kg now...
I m using 1 btl bio oil each week but stretch marks still continue developing mayb cz my body is expanding and it tends to stimulate more stretch marks when I lie on my back (stretch marks on buttocks and side hips). I m 33weeks 5 days, gained around 14 kg and baby girl was 1.87kg at week32.gynae said it is normal weight.
i always have this tight feeling in my tummy, very tight.. should be braxton hicks symptoms bah.. kinda uncomfortable... n my movements are slowing down now, having backache too.
and worse still, adding to it, i m sick these few days, down with flu n cough/sore throat.. damn jia lat... sigh...
Petpet.. You use bio oil on your stomach or whole of lower body and stomach? I'm using bio oil on my stomach and 1 bottle last me more than a trimester!!
I m using on my stomach, buttock, thigh, hips..but it tends to dry out after few hours although I slap so much oil on it..lol..but I shld say tht this is e only oil not causing any itchiness or rashes so far (tried cocoa butter and clinica organic oil from Kk but all caused itchiness and tiny bump, lil mosquitoes bite lookalike).
I am also been adviced to go for c sec as my baby turn around and head up. Although doc said maybe will turn down next week but hinted possibly that my pelvis too small thats why head didnt engage and turn around. I can try for natural but if pelvis too small end up have to c sec.
Like this seems like no choice for me. dont want to end up try for natural than cannot go c sec double pain and double cost. schedule c sec on 22 or 23 June.
If doc advise c-sec then bobian.. My hubby wanted me to do c-sec w GA.. Coz he can't bear to see me in pain for so long (also, I have very low threshold for pain, n I m not sure if I m allowed to use epidural).. But my mum says c-sec takes about nearly 6 mths to recover.. N from time to time, will still feel the ache..
So we r still deciding, guess I will leave it for the gynae to advice.. Personally, I hope to go thru natural w/o epi.. Coz I wanna experience the process since this will b my 1st n only child..
