My hubby n my friends travel a lot, n lately they stocked up my fridge w a lot of chocolate. Lol. I'm the one controlling my own diet. Just nibble abit abit... Scare baby overdose. Lol
Good morning ladies,
How r you gals doing today?
35 weeks and alot of new symptoms came up! Had my first calf cramp yest n it was soo painful!! Haiyo! Read somewhere that if it happens, you need to stretch your feet n it works! I mean it was still painful bt bareable.. =))
Last night me n hubs went to get dinner which was like 10-15 mins away n when I got home about half n hour later, my lower left abdomen and my I dont know what is it call bt its the bone at the side of your vjj hurts alot especially when trying to get up n walk after sitting down! Bt my baby is not head down yet. She is lying transverse.
Anyone experiencing the same?
yesterday I started to hav some contraction on my right side, on and off and last few seconds, few times a day.. is that Braxton Hicks? I also noticed some times my bowels are loose too.. I dont know if I should be excited and happy that I'll see my boy soon or scared and worried that I dont hav energy to push the baby out...
I was alone yesterday during the day when the contractions came and there was once the pain was so sharp that I weeped.. at nite when my hubby came back from work, the pain come again and he helped me massage the painful part and I cried lying on his shoulder, feeling so comfortable and warmth.. he then commented I sure need epi if even tis contraction I cant tahan.. which somehow now I agree and maybe I should not insist not to go with epi if I really need it..
Will defo try them if it happens again. Guess it was too cold cz now I sleep w no blanket at all cz hot. Then at night also didn't pull the blanket cz of the shiokness of the cold! Hehehehhe
How's your pain now? Guess its BH. Cz it's not like constant pain thruout the day. I have them too. Bt mine is more like menses cramp plus diarrhea cramp which usually comes in the morning n at night only. It's ok to cry just breathe thru the pain ya. Take care =))
At this point I think alot of us are having pelvis pains . Asked my gynae and he said is very normal. Cos our body is producing hormones to loosen the bone ligament to prepare for labour .
Finding hard to zzz now. Hard to breathe at night. Only slept 3 hours last night.
I got 2 more week to reach week 37. Scary!!!!
Anyone opting for epidural for delivery?
Wow sweetoothz n miracle25, you will be seeing your baby soon, jia you!
Yap I think if you feel you cannot take the pain then ask for epidural...dont wait till is too late...
there was once I went to see my company doctor and told her about the cramp she suggested me to drink isotonic drink cos it may be due to lack of salt, maybe you can ask your gynae about this?
yesterday it only started in the late afternoon and at night.. I shall monitor it today onwards.. will be seeing my gynae again on a weekly basis now and next visit is this Friday.. will let him know about this too.. thanks..
Yap I am feeling very warm too, on air con n fan blowing at me w/o blanket too, enjoying the coolness.
Nowadays each step I take seems like very heavy, like wearing weights on my calves. Think baby's weight really increased by a lot.
Meilynn - i having mee rebus for breakfast!! hahaha. my baby really is big eater like his dad. cos i onli gain 1kg so far, and he is 1.9kg at 32week, think all the weight go to him.
last nite after dinner, i eat 4 pc of fruit n nut bread, 1 glass of milk n 1 bowl of soup, still hungry. i just told hubby i sick of eating, tomolo must have mee rebus for BF then go bed early. hahaha
last nite, sudden wake up realize i actually sitting up, then i cough. feel like choking. hubby got shock also!! think i snore then got choke.
for target sugar level, is best btw 3.3 to 5.5 mmol/L before food, 2hr after food is 5.5 to 7mmol/L. but my gynea allow me to reach 7.5 mmol/L sometime if i got craving. my sugar target seem to be on high side during breakfast. i like heavy breakfast. lunch ok, dinner sometime too low. if too low even after food, will be good to take some snack or food.
nowadays i cant stand the heat, will sweat alot. even at home yday i bath 4 time change alot. cos mother in law come over paiseh to stay inside room for aircon. for leg cramp try to lift up leg w/ 2 pillows when sleep. i cover my legs w/ blanket, wear singlet to sleep, poor hubby is all cover up inside blanket.
i try beehoon w/ veg n fishcake before. ok lei. then i add mee, ok also. try then test . if too high then for lunch n dinner lighter food, drink more water also.
i have no aircon bt i sleep w the fan directly at me from my feet and i sleep w tshirt but no pants on cz my legs everytime hot one.. hehehehe.
so i guess thats y the cramps occur.. hehe..
Wah you ladies r making me hungry!
My baby will move non stop while I am eating, once done, she will stop....
