I was on the borderline of Gestational diabetic. Though my ppsugar tests alway Ok, my gynae kinda worried that my baby may become too big so he sent me for induce.
Was not expecting this so soon cos till now I have no symptom yet! Ppl still comment that I look 8 month pregnant as tummy still small. But gynae insist baby is big!
My last dilation check show my cervix still tightly closed!
I will be in for more painful checks later when admit to hospital in the night!!!
Haiyo so many of you kanna knock on bump. Better be careful. I try to walk n move w/ hands infront of bump everytime now. Sometime is cos of B.H or the clothes I wear can't see my bump also. better hold w/ hands in case some "blind" ppl can't see.
I just knock my bump to a chair corner, gt a scratch, now I try to take to her make sure she still active in my tummy, sweat
But after more then a wk I think my body is slowly adjusting, the massage lady also helped w me the engorgement. I pump less often
Until now nnipples also abit sore from the constant suckling and pumping... I was very lucky I only had a very slight crack on my left which healed very fast
Mummies, do remember to count baby movement.. Very important.. I had an ex-colleague.. Didn't realize baby didn't move cos of stress at work, end up baby still born and near full term.. Thats why I was very conscious about my baby movement.. More aware that she moved less compared to previously but still moved at least 10x in 12h
Until now my gynae never ask me to count movement. So as long as there is 10 movement within 12h is ok? So if baby kicks and moves 10x all within 15-30min is that counted as fulfilled the criteria?
do you knw if bleeding is normal? I spotted blood spots at d tip of d nipple after every pump. I asked d nurse & she said its normal cos its only d beginning.. I now starts to apply d nipple cream, hope it can help..
was wondering how dilation feels like. been feeling the pressure and cramp these day n I'm constantly having this tummyache feeling.
just last week I was suffering from the
water retention effect! boy! it was so painful and then it subside. my colleague was telling me that there's this old wife tale whereby after one more round of water retention effect, I will eventually give birth. I'm officially in my 36 week now, she
was telling me to enjoy the 2 PH and predict that I will go into labour soon.
my calves and feet start to swell and it hurts to walk. very visible sign and I can't fit into my sandals and covered shoe. the ache felt like your went for a run after a long hiatus. when you press onto the skin, it has that sunken white spot that takes a while to regain.
I applied mine fr 14 onwards but I have
preempt my boss that 14 is an estimated date! ahah..
My colleague told me the same thing. If we start to have water retention , means going labour soon. I starting my ML on 14 may too but am afraid before I start my ML, I already give birth haha
Yup, been doing the exercise mentioned but till today, can still feel my gal's head upwards.
Past few days feeling very poorly. Not sure if bcos of the extreme hot weather or that I m stil sick after 3 weeks. Cannot rest well bcos of my night coughing, whole body aches n pains n now with BH, tummy extremely hard make my sleep quality very bad. Feeling extremely down. Seeing gynae on Thur. Hopefully have good news.
Since I have increasing pain walking n sitting, I m thinking of starting my ML early. If I need a c sec, most probably will start my ML on 9 May 12. By then I will be exactly 38 weeks.
Now just the thought of working makes me feel very tired. Covering party only coming in on 3 May 12. Wonder few days handover sufficient or anot. Yet to even start on my handover notes n SOP. Tired.
