Hey everyone! Your time will come soon n before you know it, you r doing confinement! At the meanwhile jiayou.. Mine popped early (for me ) n I got no time to set up all the baby stuff n prep at home or cut hair etc... Hope I had the time to stay at home more!
Wah erlina, working all the way till baby popped? Jiayou! My sch take early or late also dont get to split so I just take... N also have a deadline to handover all my stuff... My colleagues actually asked why I never take one month early (aug-nov) so I dont overlap w dec hols! XD but I feel lucky I take in time, if not my contraction will be during morning assembly! Wonder what kinda chaos I might have created haha...
Guess over this week will have more birth stories coming?
Oh dear i never really walk alot ever since i started my leave .. went out awhile.. walked abit here and there...yesterday went to walk IMM.. so crowded .. tiring for the back.. legs also tired and feet sweaty haha.. i climb up around 3 storeys a day only coz my house is walkup.. nowadays i lazy to go out coz getting abit heavy and not much clothes to wear.. have maternity work clothes only..
guess i gotta buck up in my walking! What kind of induction available? i heard got those that they put you on drip or use needle to burst waterbag which can hurt... ouch.. i wish my baby come naturally!
What i know is different kind of method is used depending on your condition.. They will insert a tablet or something i forgot, to soften your cervix if your cervix not ready yet.. if your cervix all okay, they will just put you on drip and burst the waterbag..
Guess have to walk more!
My gyne said will put in tablet to allow cervix to dilate. But also can't put too much cos there's risk involved. Thereafter will burst waterbag and also put in drip...
all these sounds painful...
hope can skip the induce labour!! Baby come quick!
if induced n use epi wont be painful right? i thought even if induced can just use epi..[/QUOTE]
My #1 was induced.. Only pain is contraction.. Use epi is ok. I worked till I del for my #1 so alot of walking...
My #2 i took annual leave and took 1week before edd... Haha today then i officially on ml... Coz baby pops out 13 days in adv
Gynae said induce will be more painful.. I dont have prior experience of non-induced labour so can't comment.. Haha..
Mine was induced labour by inserting pill to dilate.. onli dilate 1.5cm in 6hrs.. But after waterbag burst by gynae, the action started.. Dilate 7cm in 3hrs but I had epi in between .. Gynae said epi could have sped things up for me cos I'm more relax so dilate faster?
Actualli I disagree take epi will have no pain.. Mine still did.. The epi onli numbed off the contraction pain in front.. But wen baby head descending, the pain down there was nightmarish.. Epi just dont work.. The nurses were puzzled too but they said it's good too cos I need to feel e pain to know wen to push.. I'm just grateful the pushing stage didn't take very long for me..
Jia you mummies in waiting! Hope your little ones dont keep you all waiting for long!
What is the colour for new born baby's poo? My baby is 11 days old, her poo is abit of greenish yellow. Is that normal?
My case # i dilate about 4cm ... Dr induce by drip then burst water bag... Contractions come in about 1 hr later... Epi when bth.. Same nearer to pushing e epi wear off.... Push bout 30~40minsOriginally Posted by Lingz12:694073
#2 is dr burst water bag.. 10mins contraction came put epi still feel comtraction but no pain. .. First one is totally no feel contraction..
Got back from checkup.. Doc checked for any signs of dilation... sigh..no dilation yet. Baby's head is coming down but not fully down yet.. Will see gynae next week again and see how..was advised to walk more and do stairs climbing or squatting... I hope for a natural delivery without the need to induce.. sigh..the pelvic pain is getting very uncomfortable that I can't wait for labour to jusT happen..
Anybody having bad cough after c section? I am suffering from bad cough now.
Everyone's been reallyy quiieeet here today?? Are all of you having your babies today or busy taking care of your babies??
I'm sooo tired of waiting.. Its getting alot more uncomfortable for me, especially when sleeping and still no signs at all... On Saturday I had pains and cramps in my stomach and was so sure that it was a contraction, and the same thing came back after half an hour or so, and I was like yeayyy finally its gonna be baby time.. But it never ever came back after that lol.
My EDD was initially Sept 24th and now its been changed to Sept 22nd, I thought maybe it means baby will come earlier. But nothing! Sighz... Tomorrow morning is my next gynac appointment cant wait, hoping he tells me something that I would like to hear..
I can only imagine how much you are waiting to be on leave, the waiting will seem longer when your at home....
yaa.. actually if i'm on ML alrd i will be alone at home, coz hubby still working as per normal. but at least i dont have to sit still on a desk for 8 hours. i've alrd plan to do up some scrapbooking at home during my ML, arranging the dolls in the baby room, and maybe do some online shopping lolz..
If got khakis, maybe go high tea, just to have the exercise going to aid in dilation.. hahahhaha..
I dont even have stomach cramps or anything.. no more pelvic bone pain or whatever.. It's soo peaceful at night!! I still sleep thru the night, got up once only around 3-4am to pee, then after that back to slumberland..
I gave up the thoughts of talking to the baby to come out this week, i finally told her to just take her time as long as she comes out healthy can alrd. just not until 29/9, if you dont come out by then, we might go in to take you out! lolz..
Haha... For myself bz with baby n #1. Very tired... Unable to pump every 3 hours as some times bz taking care baby or spending time with #1.
1 week passed... Milk supply seemed abit stagnant...about 40~50ml per pump (both sides)..
Wow.. you seems like have a handful of stuffs to do.. dont give up though and hopefully you dont get too stressed up..
Btw.. any mommies planning to do baby shower alrd? any recommendation on venues or catering etc?
I'm thinking whether to invite those colleagues who's pregnant now or whose wife is pregnant now to the baby shower or not. I actually got pantang, i didnt go to baby shower when i'm pregnant and so far i've missed out like 3-4 baby showers. The thing is, i think my colleagues not the pantang kind. I dont feel like inviting them because i do have this pantang but they gave me presents alrd and i feel bad if i dont invite them..
what to do? give cakes to them is it suffice? Fyi, i also gv them presents for their new baby too.. Will that actually suffice too?
Im starting my countdown... 10 days or less! If no action by 28 sept, will be induced labour... Meanwhile just nua-ing at home... Not much mood to do anything much... Wanna go out, but dont know go where or do what...
Me toooo... but for me i m working from home instead of nua-ing... sigh... still got work...
Tummy too huge to be go out ... went out with hubby on saturday but cannot seem to last too long... either back will ache or legs will tire out, or i will be yawning within just 2 hours.......... sigh.... no stamina to even go shopping!!!
Edd on 26th sept.. but i am really hoping baby can come out within this week instead... he is getting too huge for me and i m really scared of the delivery, doc says if natural cannot will have to go for emergency c-sect............................... >.<
Eeneyminey & mamadinosaur - Your EDD's are both so close... Im bored of doing baby shopping and arranging things for the baby lol.. Everything is ready and now the baby only has to make her big appearance. I think I'll ask my gynac to induce on Friday if the baby doesnt show up before that, cos all my walking seems to be doing nothing... Still not done any cervix checks too, dont wanna do it too, and not checked the baby's weight since week 35. Hoping the baby is of a decent size and healthy which is most important.
