pardon me for asking, for those soiled ones, do you throw them away or bring home to wash? if it's natural birth, will we still bleed when we are wheeled to the ward? I intend to get only 1 set for the whole stay (didn't think of the bleeding part).. cos I dont wear pyjamas at home (I wear T-shirt and shorts) tats why I've no intention to buy so many sets..
ladies, y must bring our own pj one? dont the hospital provide us w one?
sorry uh, im a first time mom so everything also dont know one.. hehehe
Yes I was thinking about bringing it too and glad you brought it up. This might be a silly question though...
When preparing my hospital bag, when should I clean the pump? Cos I thought can't clean too early?
Also, after expressing at hospital, how do I clean the pump and bottles? Will the hospital have the cleaning equipment or must I bring?
Thanks so much dear
i just returned home from my checkup! Baby is 2.1kg. Doc said its a good weight but asked if I eat a lot ?.?
I told him I eat moderately, I dont't stuff myself. He said must watch my intake cos if baby get too big then labour will be difficult. Should I be worried?
Other than that, little one is looking cute from the 3d face scan hehe
I will be delivering at Thomson Medical Center and was told to pack our own pj. I got those from pasar malam at $8 per set. I got those long sleeve n long pants type as was told the ward might be cold. I will alter it short after my confinement and wear at home.
I stayed at Kandang Kerbau Hospital and seems like everything there is prepared for you. Nursing gown, disposable undies, pads (maternity loops and normal), wet wipes. They prepared this package and everything will be labelled with your name. Haha.
Breast pump was also prepared since my baby in NICU. but the pump was super noisy and i was qt paiseh to use it at night. Then after every pumping session, I just passed the set to the nurse to sterilise.
Ladies, had my gynae follow up today. baby at 28 weeks 6 days weighs 1.2kg. Thou gynae said weight ok but think from what I read from other mummies from this forum, my gal seems to be smaller. I have put on almost 9kgs since pregnant but most weight is on me
Placenta on the low side but this excuse me from my south Africa travel cos gynae advised not to travel. Im delivering at Mt Alvernia. Think I too lazy to bring the pj so will just wear the hospital gown. From my antenatal class, Mt A do provides for rental of breast pump so most probably I will not bring along. If pump really to noisy, will then get my hubby to bring to the hospital.
Was told to bring along pad cos we will bleed. I saw from the taja's fair that there is this maternity pad. Do we need this or normal pad will do?
Also, I def want to shower post delivery but how to shower with those Chinese herbs in the hospital? Any advice?
I'm new here and my EDD is at 16th May hope to hear you ladies too...
I dont think we can use herb to bath in hospital... Will be using normal water...
Mine was a maternity loop where they tied the pad (like a g-string around your waist) using some strings provided. The nurses helped me to tie. Maybe cos it was C-section and I had a urinary catheter attached to me. And I didn't shower at all in hospital cos I didn't want to risk infecting the wound. I only wiped myself.
Are you all planning to "observe" the 1 month confinement period?
I was intending to switch to Mount A but ended up being hospitalised before I could do so. A blessing in disguise cos I was under subsidised class in Kandang Kerbau Hospital. Luckily baby's bill won't be as exhorbitant as in private hospitals but still high
My folks n hubby have told me that I need to observe the 1 month confinement period. This is the only instance whereby my hubby refused to compromise. Maybe bcos my health was not great before pregnancy n alot of ppl said confinement period 2nd chance to beef up a stronger body. Thus I will try my best to cooperate.
Now, if cannot use herbs to shower in hospital, maybe I wil just wipe myself during my stay. Go hm then tk the proper herb shower. My CL encourage me to shower but must be with herbs. think gotta go buy the maternity pad then.
Oh ya mummies, just wondering if the glucose test is compulsory, as in I'm already almost week 30, n my last visit at week 27 I wasn't informed of any test I need to do. I read glucose test is done around week 28.
I'll be delivering at Thomson Medical Center too.. have booked a 4-bedded but not sure if it guarantees me a bed and when I asked my gynae on my last visit, he say it is flexible and can be changed.. dont realy understand what he meant.. will we be given a list of things to bring on our own nearer to our EDD?
