Just back from gynea clinic. Baby now 3kg! Yeah hit the target we want! Baby's head is at position but not yet engaged. But I.can walk w/ legs close now.
Went for my check up today too, baby is very low but I am still only 0.5cm dilated. Baby is 2.89kg n I dropped 0.5kg...
Me too went for my check up today.
Due date came n went away n by this Wednesday still nothing happen then I'll b admitted at 9pm n induced by midnight. N hopefully by Thursday, I'll have my baby in my arms!! =))
hi all, thanks for d encouragements.. unfortunately today I still lose to my mother in law's 'snatching' & now I can feel that my father in law is at it too. Worse is father in law is male, when we change hand to carry baby, I scared he'll touch my breast area cos he also just 'snatch' baby away before I can hand him d baby..
& I'm also sad that when baby cry, I cant pacify him, mother in law will snatch baby away & immediately stop crying! tis happens few times today cos baby whole day dont want sleep, either lie ther with eyes big big or wil cry for attention. Last week he was still ok with me carrying & patting him to sleep in my arms, today is totally different.
Hey miracle, dont be upset. Maybe your mood is pushing your baby to prefer your in laws more? I'm also very scared that my mother in law will be like that. And I already told my hubby, I will be very jealous if mother in law and baby bond well.
But he say, no choice, many kids will have close ties with their grandparents. So suck it up. But one incident made me happier. We have a nephew who was being taken care ( everything from feeding to pooingand bathing) by the granny, becuz his mom no breast milk. But after a few months of all that, baby start to reject granny and look for mom, because he recognize that the scent from granny diff from mom.
So what I'm trying to say is, now baby still a bit blur blur. When their senses become sharper, they will naturally know who is their mama one. dont worry.
If your baby cry, do hold him upright n place him close to your body. When my gal cries n I hug her n soothe her this way, she will usually calm down.
Also, baby can feel our moods so you must try to lighten your mood n be happy. baby will be able to sense your feelings. For your father in law, if he next snatch your baby away, just let him know nicely that you prefer to calm baby down yourself so that you can learn.
Now, make sure you stay positive. All will be well
Clearblusky - the dr suggest I induce today to wait till Wednesday night. Dr didn't wanna wait any longer cz my water bag level is on the low side.. Bt since he checked the placenta was ok that's y I can wait till tomorrow night. =))
Climsp - hang in there. I get heartburns alot too. Especially while sleeping suddenly wake up cz of heartburn..
Those still on the waiting list.. Jia you!! All the best !! =))
Me regardless night or morning, I will vomit also. Make me feel like I'm back to first trimester, the horrible morning sickness!!
Today I officially start my ML. Hopefully my baby will out soon. I already 39 weeks and very sick of the waiting time. One of my friends edd 1 day later than me already delivered yesterday. 17 hours!!! I wonder when is my turn. I also sick of counting my contraction timing. Now want to
Go out also scare. dont't know halfway water bag will burst mah.
I think I'm going to get depression with the whole breastfeeding thingy.
It's day 12 and I have trouble sleeping at night as after each feed and perhaps pump, my breast would end up really hard again some 3-4 hours later. So hard and painful that I can't sleep on my sides.
Some forum told me to cut down on my pumping time from 30 mins to 15 mins one side which I'll start today. The other forum also said the breast also works 'on demand' - if it's down in milk supply, the body regenerates again. But I just wish the breast won't swell up so fast/much. I really dont't know what I'm doing wrong as I'm feeding every 3-4 hours and on demand as well. This morning my right side was so hard I couldn't even touch it. So I decided to pump out some before my feeding starts with the baby. In 15 mins I've pumped out 60ml one side!
Sigh I feel so helpless and in pain.
Oh dear.. Have you consulted a lactation consultant? Me have no experience, but sounds like it's quite terrible for you. Do other mummies suffer similar experiences?
Not yet. I dont't think Thomson Medical Center LC makes house calls tho. Will call them and see.
Just wondering if anyone has similar experience
I think I read from this forum about a lady who may be able to help with breast feeding pain problem through massage?! Her name is Mdm Rokiah 92716091
Climsp, I finally understand how you feel. My baby is now quite low, very difficult to walk n vjj very uncomfortable... n now has smaller appetite ... also letting out A lot of gas lol...
Maybe you can try to look at things more positively to make you feel better.
At least there are pple around you helping you coax the baby during this time. After all, your baby's mother is you...no one can 'snatch' away this position. Try not to be too affected by the physical carrying of the baby by your in-laws. Ultimately, I'm sure everyone loves the baby, and your darling is blessed to have so many pple loving and caring for him.
dont't be too worried... babies normally dont't really know how to differentiate yet. When they get older, they will still go back to their parents. I have seen several examples where the grandparents take care of the child since baby (day and night) and when the children grows older they are still closer to their parents. As long as you make the effort to understand and bond with them when they are growing up, they will be close to you.
Jia you... only a few more weeks to go.....
