This is a discussion on EDD Nov 2012 mummies here within the Year 2012 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; why are you inducing B zhai? Originally Posted by B zhai I'm experiencing a few times a day. Maybe 3-4 ...
Bzhai, I think it's Braxton hicks if it is not painful. I missed having my baby inside me as well, funny feeling to have tummy flabby and nothing moving inside after so many months.
Btw, my baby has jaundice so cannot be discharged today. So sad... He has to go under the light. Doc said he's a little dehydrated because total bf n only have colostrum now so the nurses are supplying him with some formula milk now because under the lights will dehydrate him even more. I'm staying one more night in hospital so I can have him latch on to feed colostrum before they add on the formula milk. Hope he can go home tomorrow....
dont worry Katherine, baby be fine. Do rmb not to eat ginger if you breast feed till baby jaundice goes under 100. Little wont harm but not too much ok.
Had Jamu massage today n the therapist toddy me if your breast feel sore , but 2 leafy of cabbage in freezer for 10min then after apply it on the breasts . Hope it helps. I'm trying in awhile.
Hi Eya, I got high blood pressure and gynae say have to deliver earlier. baby is not getting enough nutrients from the placenta. Weight growrh is slowing down. My edd is 30 nov . So this fri would be end of Wk 37. Hope baby would gain more weight these few days. Very stress seeing my bp going up higher each day despite medication.
Hi Katherine, poor baby. baby will be fine. Just bear with it for a while more n baby will be home with you soon!
Thanks mummies for the encouragement. Baby is sleeping too much because of jaundice so not latching on for last breastfeeding, told nurses to formula Feed him again and expressed the colostrum using hand according to lactation consultant's advice. Half an hr and only got like a few drops, no wonder my boy keeps screaming whenever he's feeding, not drinking enough from the colostrum!
Bzhai, jia you jia you!
How are the epitisiomy stitches? Does it hurt when you pee or move around?
Its okay.. from what i heard, hospital usually do cup feeding before your milk comes in, so that baby wont be confused btwn bottle feeding and breast feeding. for now, try to apply nipple cream to the nipples to prevent cracked nipple. and i heard your milk is the best cure for cracked nipples.
Btw mummies, the lactation consultant advised that if want to express milk, should massage breast for 5 min then express 5 min, massage 5 min, express 5 min, massage 5 min and express 5 min. This is the max already. She said cannot express 15 min in one go, will be sore. And massage should be using palm, not fingers because may cause blocked ducts.
Hi Eya, the stitches stung the first two days when I pee, also hurts a little when I move and sit down but today is much better already. Actually hubby said gynae seemed very rough when doing the stitches but since I can get off bed and walk to toilet on first day, I can't complain
Hi wobbymummy, thanks for assuring me. That's what I need the most now. Me n b zhai will jia you! we will be fine! My baby is a strong girl and managed to last well until now. Love her lots!!
Hey mummies, any tips to wake baby up during feeds? My boy been falling zz drinking and not drinking enough.. Can't wake him up to drink more! =(
Me too..my baby is sleepy.. That's why I expressed for her and let her drink ebm after latching if she's still not enough..
JiAyou GG2012 n B Zhai, just relax n everything be fine.
Eya, I didn't take though gynae got give. Actually it's only discomfort, not exactly painful
