This is a discussion on EDD May 2012 Mummies! within the Year 2012 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by Suhaidah Hey guys, have you all drawn up your birth plan? I'm not sure if its necessary ...
I have done some research sometimes ago... haha very kiasu .. but not sure whether there will be any changes in price since there are new rules nowadays that the food need to be consumed 3 hours from the preparation and heard that most of the caterer has increased the cost.
Some of it really quite cheap but not sure of the quality and quantity...just for your reference only and do share if have any comment..
Since I have budget on it so I plan to DIY the red eggs and you can buy the Ang kuh keuh from some shops or even stalls from hawker centre.

You can talk to you gynea about it. During last visit I am checking with my gynea when is the suitable time to discuss the birth plan with him. His response is since I knew about birth plan so I must have done some research and study. He felt happy about it and said that I can discuss it with him during this coming visit. He also advise can download some sample from the internet and discuss see which one is applicable and which one is not suitable...
So it is better for you to check with your gynea.
I just do some massage and shake my hands (like swing it). Then I stand up and once the blood flood back to the fingers it gets better. It happen to me every night.. so sometimes in the middle of the night I need to repeat it a few times. Not sure what can be the right solution... Will check with my gynea again on this saturday appt..
It's called carpal tunnel syndrome... caused by fluid retention and pressure on the nerves. I'm also having this sensation, but mostly in the mornings after I wake up.
Can google the term and read more on it:

I have spoken to my gynea and he is kind enough to share that there is a medical study conducted to 2 groups of mummies, one group with epi and the other group without. So after birth, the results shows that 50% from both of the groups will suffer from backache. The conclusion is, epi has risk but might not necessary cause the backache. There are so many other factors that will cause backache and it depends on how you take care of yourself after birth as it is likely to be the factor that leads to backache. For example, bad posture for a long time etc...Even like now, we will also experience some extend of backache even though we didnt take any epi yet..
During the olden days, there is no epi so they do not have a choice. We are bless as we have a choice now. In fact, I am also considering whether I should take the epi due to other side effects. But most likely I will settle with epi since it will helps to relief the pains as I dare not challenge my threshold of pain tolerance level.. .. However, there are also pain involved while getting the epi but heard from some of my friends that there are only a little pain compared to the contractions pain.. Anyway I think we will be able to experience some contraction pains while dilating so, you can see whether you are comfortable or bearable with it. But better to be prepared as it will need to take sometime for the epi to take effect..
Thanks for sharing... just pray it will back to normal very soon.. I already struggling to find a good position to sleep at night.. turn right not comfortable, turn left also dont feel good and cant sleep too long on my back ... now with this numbness... I really wake up almost every hour during my sleep... Thank God I dont have to work now..else.. I will be the most obvious panda in my office :P
Yah some women get it during pregnancy and I guess it shouldn't be serious... My sister had it too during hers. Her gynae told her it should go away after giving birth. Indeed now she's ok. Just dont't overwork your hands and wrist now, and try to rest them as much as you can. Do some light stretching and exercises....
