Hi may mummies,
Sorry to interrupt. Just wondering whether did anyone engage origin jamu massage? If so, did you all lose weight so far? I'm from the June mummies forum.. I actually made deposit but read from other thread that they may not be that effective. Thinking of changing now. But before I do that hope to gather more feedback first. Thanks much!!!
Anyone experienced water retention during confinement? My feet r now even more swollen than pregnancy
I got drink water, but not much. dont have water retention. I still have numbness on hands n fingers.
Btw for mummies who got csection. you do feel pain at area above wound area? I keeps having pain specially at nite.
My baby seem to need more milk if after breast milk feeding. I feed him 100ml EBM. Then for the next feeding is 1hr later I give 40ml FM, he cry for more. 1hr later I give another 80ml FM. If whole day FM he feed on 80ml every 3 to 2.5hr. Wonder is he drinking too much. I dont like to latch on, cos baby seem to suck very hard & he tend to use his gum also. My boy very rough type. Even pediatrician comment he very strong. So far he gain 300g. 3.3kg when discharge. Now 3.64kg
My medical consultation cost alone during my 37w pregnancy is high but I'm not complaining.
But thru out my pregnancy I had no signs of high blood pressure. My kidney function was stable despite not being on any meds -- something in extremely thankful for especially when I had fears of an early birth.
At 28w, the gynae detected that the blood flow to baby was a bit restricted so I was monitored on a monthly basis and then every 1-2 weeks. Because of the restricted blood flow, baby weight was lower than usual. I didn't give up and prayed every night that baby wld put on weight. At 37w, baby was around 2.63kg and the gynae said its time to deliver. After delivery he said he is happy that baby was bigger than 2.5kg as that was the milestone to meet. I cried my eyes out when I heard my baby first cry -- thinking about it still makes me teary eye.
So I hope I can still conceive for no 2 and I hope my kidney doesn't fail me then
Other issues. After I recovered from my fever, my breast milk supply seems dropped. I know cos she cried when suckling my breast and I know it is also empty. I gave her 60ml fm then.
How to build up supply before I start work if breast milk dont go up... My appetitive was low then. Think I will eat more from now on...
My baby also like to use gum, sometimes bite my nipples... Last nite she dont seems to be satisfied after feeding, I kept feeding her for almost 2 hours with short interval until my nipple so sore that I cannot take it, I made FM for her....
Dear Climsp, my boy also very rough with breast feeding. Suck very hard. He suck harder that my pump Max strength! So yesterday both my nipples cracked already.
When I saw how slow milk comes out from my breast, I understand why he suck so hard n so long... So little milk! Now I using pump, low strength, pump very 2 hours. Just good meet his demand. But takes many times longer than his feeding duration to achieve. Wonder if this is just a phase? How long will it take for nipple to heal? I miss the bonding we shared
