Hi ladies... What nappy cream have you bought? Not sure which brand to get.
Hi mummies, i just did my scan few days ago, and at 31 weeks, baby head circumference is measuring 34cm. Gynae says it's a big head baby, i was laughing when she said that, cuz his daddy has a big head too. Then i asked her, if it will be difficult for me if the baby head is big...she hestitated for a while and said " not really" but it feels like she doesnt want me to worry. I recalled how my mother in law told me her first son has a big head, second bigger then last one so big that she has no choice but to opt for C section last min. OMG! i dont want to opt for C section last min, now i'm thinking... if i should just do C section to avoid all the unnesscary trouble.
I know it sounds weird but hope you gals can share the size of your babies head around this period and what's your opinion on this?

My gynae yet to share with me the size of my baby's head. I m 31 weeks too. Next appt when I have 34 weeks I will ask. what else do your gynae measure during the scan?
Now, for my hubby, he is a big head baby too. Somemore part of Twins. My mother in law was saying that she had a hard time but finally managed to deliver them naturally. My gf's baby was generally big size n head big too. Thus, at 37 weeks her gynae induced the labour. She went thru 23 hours of pain but still only dilated 4cm. Ended up Ceaseran n baby weighs 3.9kg. Guess you may want to seek opinion from your gynae nearer the term if better to c-sect.
Try not to worry too much k. Jia you!
I think she measures the arm length and head to top length too.
My baby weighing 1.8kg Now n last month was only 1kg. He's growing at a incredible speed.
hi meilynn, my gynea give me a free 3d scan during my 20 week scan. actually cant see much also. quite blur also, somemore my baby cover half his baby w/ both hands, like his daddy when sleep, like to have hand by the side.
gemini11, my baby weight 1.6kg at 29week, sound like big baby. hahaha, dont worry too much. i got friend delivery her 4.1kg big head baby girl by natural birth w/o epidural.my friend actually about 1.55plus height, consider small frame. think if she can do it, most ppl can.
me been worried too much for past few days, think it not going to be better for me or baby. today decide to dress up go work, being a happy mummy..n counting down to my ML. hahaha let jia you jia you together...
i'm also counting down to ML... these days dont't really want to move around, just want to rest or lie down...
jia you all mummies to be!
Wow I salute your friend....4.1kg is very big for her frame... no epidurals some more... so mummies jia you !
i think he also measure body circumference and length of leg bone. baby now 1.4kg at 30 weeks, gained 11kg so far, gynae wants me to put on more...:x
I bog pureen brand nappy cream, did not buy any barrier cream, not sure if necessary...
Barrier cream is to apply every time when change nappy to prevent rash...
Yap, last time baby only use powder... nowsday so many pdt...
climsp, no no.. you dont't use desitin everytime. Only use it when there're rashes. Cos its too harsh to apply everyday.
As for barrier cream, its for daily usage. It acts as a natural protective barrier for the skin, to help protect the skin. So with the protection, I guess it will reduce the chances of getting rash ... You can search for Avent barrier cream or bottom balm..
Hmm... i did my scan at week 30 and my baby's head diameter is 8cm, that would work out to about 25cm circumference...
wondering if that is considered too small? Will be going for my next appointment on 3 April ..
I am hoping to go for natural delivery if all goes well and there are no risks to me and baby.
At 31 weeks, my baby boy's head is 28 cm and his weight is 1.5kg. His head is not big maybe because he turns head down quite early at week 27 (I have a big head. hahaha), and engaged at 33 weeks. His weight increase to 2kg at 33 weeks... Doctor says he is relatively small
some ppl very fast, some take 1 or 2 days. it depend. hear epidural will cause delay in labour for some mummies. anyway if really cant take the pain, then take , but dont take when about 6 to 8 cm dilated, that will be too late.
