This is a discussion on EDD May 2012 Mummies! within the Year 2012 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; In my 35th week, and My baby's head is measuring at 34weeks. But gynae's a little concerned as her body ...
In my 35th week, and My baby's head is measuring at 34weeks. But gynae's a little concerned as her body is only about 31week + in size. She's about 2.2kg right now. He mentioned that may have to deliver her at 37 if she dont grow more. Kinda worried plus gynae will be away this week till the next. Urgh...
Your emotions really run high .. for me, no changes at all . No craving for food, no throwing temper, no rollercoaster emotion also.
smurfete, hopefully baby will grow more than 100gm per week.. Mine aso 100 gm per week on the average.. if continues this way, then by 40 week baby only 2.5kg....
Ya, you could be right. My gynae said she expects my baby to be bigger cos I am 3.8 kg at birth and now having a height of 1.68m. hahaha..... She never shows us his eyes to avoid disappointment. I bet small eyes because me and my hubby both have small eyes. She only show us the nice things - tall, slim and a head full of hair.
anyway hubby keeps telling me we can always pump up his weight after birth, dont worry too much, afterall the weight i gain all go to baby. i actually seem slimmer on my face leg butt n hand. onli bump get bigger, but still smaller if compare to other mummies.
Ladies, for coconut juice, only start drinking if your baby's head is in downward position. They were saying drinking of coconut juice is to reduce the amount of blood on your baby when it arrives in this world. Think better stick to young coconut. For me, during last checkup baby still not in position so cannot drink yet.
I can't wait to drink coconut, I love it bt still got a few more wks before I can start drinking.
I m also starting to worry about labour... esp after seeing the video during the class... I thought of chicken out n opt for c-sect but hubby discouraged tht...
my friends (mother of 2) also told me to start drinking young coconut juice only few days before labour.. I was wondering, how would I know when I'll b going into labour? EDD is just an estimate...
will go to hawker centre to get one instead cos they will cut off the skin/ husk, easier for us..
miracle, I tihnk anything from week 37 onwards shld be fine, cos 37 to 40 week is consider full term and ready to come out.. So mabbe I will also take coconut around that timing..
i didn't get to drink my coconut juice was looking forward to it!
anyway nipple cream can get Lansinoh brand. apparently a lot of ppl recommend i'm using it.
Seeing all you ladies with healthy big babies makes me envious. I hope my baby will continue to grow until 36w/37w which is 4-5 weeks away now. Most important is baby is healthy and safe I guess.
Over the weekend during our antenatal class they showed us live video Of mums giving birth naturally, csect n using various assisted pain relieve measures. My hubby and I freaked out when we saw the natural one. Haha I straight away told him I want csect!!
Btw just a stupid question. If for example my water bag burst in the middle of the night or when I'm at office I guess natural instinct is for people to call an ambulance (not sure if ambulance or taxi is faster?) -- are ambulance designated to go certain hospitals or I can instruct them to bring me to Thomson?
dont need to call ambulance , you still got time to shower and then take cab there. But no time to do other things , just shower is no problem.
meilynn - my baby head down already. gynea ask me to get ready, n take note of any symptoms.. so i need to drink the coconut now?? really dont like the taste. if really cant take it, then bloodly baby , let the nurse clean him up. hahaha just scared hubby faint when see baby.
miracle25- my hubby will onli know i cry if tear infront of him. maybe too strong last time.
tannie - if c-sect think i more scare!! i almost cancel my operation for cyst the very last min at the operation room. cant imagine awake during c-sect. think maybe feel the labour pain, know what go on better.. scared halfway hubby fainted also. hahaha
Ha ha milkshake, I think we watched the same video as I m also delivering at Thomson Medical Center.
My gynae said no need panic when water bag burst, just put pad n go to hospital when contraction. Esp when first birth, after water bag burst still got few hours before deliver:.. so I guess taxi is good enough ....
I worry if can't push the baby out thn c sect, end up 2 side pain. My sis in law just give birth, baby too big, 3.69kg, so end up c sect after trying virginal birth...Originally Posted by climsp:639298
