yes i sought the advise of a lactation consultant (LC) and she gave me some suggestions.. hopefully it works...
first month of bf is the toughest, yet most important.. LC say once mummy and baby establish routine in first month, after that will be easy...
and it's important to get the support of care givers and people around you.. my CL doesnt really agree with me not resting at night and leave the night feed to her. but the LC has advised me to do total latch on to regulate my flow. mother in law has also been wondering whether baby is 'eating enough' through breasts... hubby has been supportive in all my decisions...
hope you ladies are having a much easier time bf-ing than me!
is anyone planning for baby shower? our initial plan was to cater buffet (at our own house) for lunch for hubby side & dinner my side. today mother in law told me one of hubby's uncle suggest to hav lunch at in law house instead then evening just our immediate family proceed to my house to host ny side of friends & relatives. I replied say no need anyway they r my guest what & we'll discuss tonite when hubby comes home after work tonite.
my prob is I dont want my in laws to go over with us.. I just dont want them to step into my house & meddle my matters & somemore its my side's guests, nothing to do with them what. Am I wrong to tink tis way?
If your hubby supports you, just stick to your initial plan.
its not about tiring or what.. I'm fine with them doing lunch at my in law house which I am more than happy. my prob is I dont want my in laws to host my guests.. on our wedding day they oredi make me feel embarrassed ob the way they host my guest, I dont want same ting to happen.
好不容易 I waiting for baby shower to fully enjoy myself & get out of their house after confinement, I dont want them to spoil it. Its my guests not theirs. I intend to tell them nicely they shld rest at hm after a busy day praying in d morning & hosting at d lunch.. at nite since its my guest just let us do it ourselves.
told my sis about it & kena scolded.. say I am very stubborn.. I'm so lost now.. I realy feel I got no say at all ever since baby delivered..
I think its your baby shower, you shld do as you planned. Maybe tell your in law you had alrdy planned with your parents n informed the guests about the venue so dont wish to change plan alrdy...
For me, my father in law said its too troublesome to invite relatives, hence no baby shower ... my mum said nebbermind she will asked her sibling over for dinner... I felt so weird cause no guests from hubby side... n me the girl side celebrate... sigh...
Thx ladies. As much as I can't wait to see my Lil one, it kills me not knowing what's gg to happen after I'm admitted later. Like what's the induction procedure like, what kind of med will they use to induce me, how long till the labour kicks in, how will my baby looks like, will there or what if my baby got defects, etc... Too many what ifs n uncertainty.. I'm a detailed person so all this question is just making me emo... =(
N to make matters worse, I am dilated at 2.5cm fr the past 2 weeks. Did almost everything to dilate more bt it's just not working... =(
Hi clearbluesky, hw did your gynea help?
I might need to be induced as well as my EDD is 18th May but the cervix is still not dilated... Sigh... I'm seeing the gynae tomorrow to see what she says. If there is no progress, then I might need to be induced as well on the 21st May... Emo too...
Did for her baby shower. It will be very rush lunch at your in law house evening rush back to your own house for another celebration. baby will be very tired.
For my case, I will have baby shower at my parents house. Initially im thinking to have 2 days. 1 day for my relatives and friends. Next day for my husband side. However my husband wants it everything in 1 day. And my in laws r fine with it to hold it at my parents house. So ok Loh, all go my parents house for both side relatives and friends to celebrate baby shower. Easier and baby won't be so tired either.
Discuss with your husband tonight and see what he say. dont't get upset. Most impt is your baby shower and you must be happy.
hi mummies, my EDD is on 28 may, saw gynae just now, dilated 2cm alrd, as gynae will go on leave on tis sunday, he suggest me to induce, baby gained 100 gram since last week, now 2,9kg. Gynae said even not induce baby shld be come out before mid of next week.
After discussion with my hubby, we decide induce on this coming friday, gynae ask us to admit to hospital at 8am, n baby shld be come out around 7pm. i wonder why need to admit so early n stay in hospital for so long hours before the labor, nervous.
sweetoothz, jia you, same here, totally lost dont know how's the procedure like, as doc just suggested to induce when i saw him today. Did doc tell you how long need to wait for the labor come after the induce medicine take effect? he told me not so soon, hours normally. /sweat
Ya.. like what Sweetoothz has experience that is why the gynea did. But I already cannot take that little pain... it is indeed very painful and even with the breathing technique.. it still feel pain.. I really hope baby will be cooperative to come out within 48 hours else the gynea will need to repeat the same step on this Friday again. and after so much pain there is only 1cm dilation. :/ ...
Hi Sweethootz, id your cervix also very thick now?
my gynea never check on my dilation..onli ask me to wait...
Wow tataro, you will be seeing your little one soon! My gynea is also going away next fri... But I am only about 0.5cm dilated, hope my girl can come out before that. Shall continue to walk more n climb more stairs... But getting more n more tired n the temp who is suppose to come today backed up... Urrrgh...
I tink you gals hav mistaken me.. my prob is I dont want my in laws to come to help us host MY guests at my house.. its MY guest not theirs, & the thought of my mother in law stepping in my house, I'll b even
busier to keep a look out for her in case she do anyting. I'm not accusing her here. Tis was what happened 1 yr ago during my wedding.
hubby side went to an chuang & bride cant go. they got alot of their relatives to go our house on that day & with a boy rolling on our bed. our wedding was on Sun & an chuang on Sat, that time mother in law said she'll stay over on Sat nite so that she can b at our house to receive us on our wedding day. I didnt tink so much & didnt knw when hubby gav our keys to them. after we chk out d hotel on Mon, we went home & I saw she left a bag of her clothes, bra & hp charger at my house. I asked hubby why & when we r returning, he kept quiet. Then we went for honeymoon on Tues.
Months past & I was looking for someting in d room & saw that bag again.. again I ask hubby same questions, he replied saying its not taking up space what & shifted to another place!! I just dont understand why she didnt take back her stuff after our wedding? wats her intention? is it a spell? I keep having tis thinking.. & why hubby is siding his mum on tis? I am also d owner of d house, shldnt I hav a say too?
now if I allow them to come & help us host MY guests, I'll take d chance to return them to her. hopefully she LL take back since I return them directly to her face & get what I mean. friends keep telling me dont return if its realy not in a way but d thought of her personal stuff in my house just make me even angrier.
