Hello mummies!! About 4hours since I delivered and I'm still wide awake GOSH.
Anyway, second surprise of the day was when my little girl came out at 3.47kg! Even doctor was shocked cause h expected her to be about 2.8kg only. Now I'm starting to wonder if Dr Koh knows what he's doing. Hahaha!
So water bag was burst at 6pm. But totally ZERO action till 9pm. No contractions no discomfort no Significant dilation. Even the nurses were asking each other if I've been admitted correctly.
But when contractions started at 9pm, they came strong and really fast. And after about an hour plus, doc informe me that I can be ready to push cause I'm fully dilated.
I have to say though, the doctor Jo administered the epidural for me, I was actually keeping the pain under control but he insisted when he saw my face twisted in pain. But anyway he made a slight slip while inserting the epidural, which sent me into instant spasms. That scared me for awhile. :/
But anyway, I was fully numb when baby arrived. Body and legs totally cannot move. And the best part is, BABY CAME OUT AFTER ONLY TWO PUSHES!!
I still look at the doc and nurses and ask "Huh that's it? dont't need to push already?". They just smiled at me.
Looking at baby, everything is worth it though.
But I got the worst of the side effects of epidural. My trembling is like a drug addict, and I've been throwing up nonstop although my stomach is empty already. Just gastric juices.
And Mount Alvernia is full house tonight. Not even an Available 4-bedded room. So I have to be kept in the Delivery Bay till tomorrow or even till discharge. Sobs. hubby can't stay.
Fast and smooth delivery though, now can't wait to play with my little girl. She's so cheeky! She didn't wanna latch on, she kept sticking her tongue out like :P. and she would cock her eyebrows and frown at us. Then when she was whisked off to the nursery, all the other babies sleeping soundly, only she's awake with eyes wide open and her hands waving all over the place. Haha!
camcamwhambam congrats and reiann!!!
Congrats camcam!! wow!! Sounds incredible... 2 pushes and your baby aren't exactly small!! you go mummy~ hope you no longer throwing up n get some rest soon~ I wanna see baby pics... Sounds super cute!!
Camcam congrat! that's real fast. It's all worth it. Take care and rest well!
Lizzy, oh is it! I did not knw. But baby like every 2.5 hour will cry for milk. Somemore, his Tummy not full full, he can't fall aslp. So now 100 ml will make him full then he sleep.
Congrats camcam, indeed a fast n smooth delivery ! Take care n rest well
Wow lizzy n Jess.. I read the link.. Some symptoms really familiar, sound like my baby!
Explosive boo, sleeplessness/wakefulness, constantly hungry >< 3 out of 11 points... Still ok right?
Anyway do your babies have explosive poo? When she poos have like loud explosive fart as the poo shoots out. How frequent is your baby pooing?
Congrats camcamwhambam.. Sounds like an easy labour!! Heh
Im still in the waiting game.. 10days left till EDD. Think baby is comfy inside.. Anyone else in the waiting game??
Congrats camcam! Your baby sounds so cute!! Can't imagine you pushed her out in 2 pushes! Pls have a good rest and hope the side effects stop soon! Hope they find a proper room for you to rest! If not your visitors also very awkward haha..

Its anytime and i'm not having any symptoms.. just feeling very hot and uncomfy .. baby very low.. just woke up to pee.. i think this morning record no. of visits.. 4-5 times?! haha maybe its a sign baby is really really very low.. i hope i can have super fast and smooth delivery like camcam's!
Camcam congratulations to you!! When was your baby born 19th or 20th??
Heyyy everyone I finally gave birth and got to see my tiny little baby )) she came out after about an hour of pushing at 2:07 am weighing 3.3kgs and measuring 53cms in length was soo relieved after she came out.. Will tell you all the details when I go home.. For now the baby is in the nicu cos she was having some difficulty breathing, still waiting on the pediatrician to update the status... Hoping all is well..
Congrats to both Kary and camcam!!! Take care and rest well.. Camcam, think your delivery really make people envious..
Ya, I'm still at the waiting game.. Always thought my edd is 29th and realized is 27th sept when I checked through the documents. Didn't really have menstrual symptoms. But, last night, kept having this super sharp pain that shoot down to my bottom area for almost 3 hours on and off.. I thought it's coming before it totally disappear again. Just hope all these sharp pains mean baby is moving downwards and getting engaged. Also hav very frequent toilet visit over the night and the worse thing is can't get back to sleep again.
Will be visiting my gynae tml. Hopefully, can be like camcam, sudden news of labour so soon and no more waiting game..
Kary congrats! Ya dont worry your baby will be fine! Good weight n length ^^
Yea lizzy but she really fusses so much n because I breastfeed, also dont know how much she get... Even when latching, half the time or more she's just fussing to latch n I'm struggling... So far no nappy rash, buttock nice n clean except for the bcg jab "pimple" mark... so keeping fingers cross...
Hi Meltie, me too.. No signs n symptoms as yet.. But feeling very hot and uncomfy.. Have been doing my squats and walking everyday. Hoping for good news later during appt.
Erlina, hope you get good news too.
Anw, congrats kary! Pray that baby will be fine.
Congrats kary and camcam!!! Finally get to carry your baby.. Rest well

Im still waiting........ I think sapphire is also still waiting........ Lol
Thanks everyone!!! Baby is doing good ) the doctor just came and told me that all good and they will brig her to me soon..
Erlina - I had that pain yday from the morning, though it was not even half as bad as it was in the night. And was not at all regular but was definitely noticeable. But yea it started with that for me..
Congrats camcam &kary!
Memory jiayou & have a smooth delivery....
I'm using e medele pump in style advanced. Initially I did not want to buy cos got a second hand one n I was worried I no milk waste money... But hubby wanted to encourage me.. So got me a new set. It's a US stock so no warranty but at least cheaper by $200? Just glad didnt buy single or manual pump (cos that was my initial plan-no milk at least e money spent not so heart pain mah) but now that I m pumping... Really can't imagine I spend more than 30 mins to pump. I guess I was motivates by e pump also bah cos did not want to waste husbands money. Anw i think 1 hr of pumping is really alot! My nipples r alrdy very very painful.
Ya weather do hot I slpt in air con room but see baby sweating alrdy... Now instead of just bathing him once in e morning we wipe him at night also (I think he feels better n fresher after that also) read online that swaddling stop once try can turn their back. So for now still ok to swaddle bah-cos they feel more secure. Actually they say baby sleep in Aircon room ok only prob is you get them so used to Aircon next time they can't sleep with/o it.
dont know is e food that we eat now or what newborns r like So active. My mum n her generation one ll say their newborn only sleep. Mine like so kapo eyes looking around, hands n lega struggling n can push me away so hard when latching... Wah Stronger than me man. Last night had to pacify baby by latching for more than 1hr!! From 10:20pm to 1am. Whole body aching... I think those myth bout taking epidural next time backache is false.. Prob e back ache is caused by e carrying n latching! Btw just outbid curiousity do you all remove up top n bra when you latch? I do that cos more comfy but I know it's not e right way . Will you gals be doing breastfeeding in public? I would like to but got this phobia ... ESP when baby struggle I cannot imagine the stares from ppl if they see something moving so vigorously underneath the shawl.-will look like a terrible mom.
Memory, think you r the next .. jia you !!
Oh Kary, really? That make me feel excited..
Glad that your baby is fine.. Update us on your motherhood journey! Have good rest!
Think as the Sept approaching to the end, our topics move on to breastfeeding and "mother in law"'s support. Glad with all the mother's sharing, always make me feel more assured.
Let's carry on with our waiting game!!!
