I think the effects of epi varies. My cousin's wife did not vomit or shiver at all.. Hopefully you won't shiver cos my jaws were chattering for 45 min which led to headache after that.
Yes she latched on fine and suckled but will stop frequently. The doc said its normal for NB to sleep on the breast cos they r still young. Even until this morning, she keeps snoozing so later I will express out.
Yup lochia bleeding start after birth. It is sooooo uncomfy wearing maternity pad but no choice cos bleeding quite an amount.
Sure you can ask qns cos I'm sure all mummies are very anxious by now. Also, I'm very bored at home haha
Hi suhaidah and all other mummies.... I'm more than happy to share my experience with you I hope it helps.
2.15am: Woke up as I could feel my panty really wet. Bed wet too, so quickly go to the loo to check. Turned out that whole panty n liner was soaked. Liner had a thin line of fresh blood. As I stood, water continue to flow down my legs and form a puddle on floor. Quickly shouted for hubby and shake him!! Pain: 0/10
3am: Reach Thomson Medical Center and nurse do vaginal examination. She confirm bag broke and my contractions started. Tight sensation on stomach, slight discomfort but no pain. Clear bowels....wait wait.... Pain: 2/10
6am: Pushed to labour room. By then, contractions getting more painful n regular, have to 'tahan' the pain.... Wait.... Pain: 4/10
8am: Pain got soooo intense. Hubby said my lips all pale n I was really curling up in a ball from the pain. Pain whole stomach and near groin. Gynae check on me and said good contractions but the level of pain was only the start!!! That's when I ask for epi n laughing gas cos I just couldn't bear with it. Pain 8/10
8.30am: Numbness starts to take effect. By 8.30-8.45, legs down all numb, can't feel sensation. Manage to take a nap with hubby beside me.... Pain: 1/10
12.45pm: Gynae n nurse say I'm ready to deliver!!! Push.....push..... Baby pops out at 1pm sharp! No labour pain at all, didn't feel anything even during stitches.
1pm: Cradle my NB in my arms with tears rolling down my cheeks. It's was a moving experience when I held my precious one for the first time......
Hmmmm I asked myself too, but dont't quite know if it was a sign.
My legs, feet and ankles became very swollen about 2 days before. Like elephant.
I couldn't walk normally and fast pace like what I was usually capable of. Just felt very heavy,and legs couldn't hold.
But I didn't feel tired or fatigue before that... So I'm not really sure too!
Oh my... feel like tearing too, can feel the joy for you!
Congrats Cupcakemum! I cant wait to see and hold my little girl in my arms too. At the same time, anxious and worried how the process will be. Especially getting to the hospital part.
cupcakemum, wow congrats!
Did you latch baby on straight away after baby is out?
So meaning like the nurse will help you to take off the top and lay baby on you issit?
I want to knw how many pads did you use for the 3days... not sure how much to pack... did you wear dress type pajamas or pants type? Did you wear the nursing bra in hospital?
Congratulation cupcakemum!! I am just curious was the epidural injection pain? My friend told be the epi even more painful than the labour
Yes, I think it will worsen after birth... n gynae said tht most ladies will have constipation after birth cause worry about the stitches...Originally Posted by clearbluesky:641923
No I didn't have the time or heart to take a full shower. I just did a quick spray down with water over my body, no soap. Afraid that water level would get low so I wanted to rush to hospital ASAP. Thank goodness my hospital bag all ready!!
I didn't go to admission counter cos the counter staff kinda guess I'm gg to deliver. So she directed me to the delivery area straight away. Then my hubby stay at counter to settle paperwork.
Yes its the epi that caused no labour pain. Just listen to the doc. He will tell you when to take deep breath n push
