This is a discussion on EDD Sept 2012 mummies! within the Year 2012 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Hi Pinky, i will start drinking in a few days time, i'll be 37weeks then.....
i will start drinking in a few days time, i'll be 37weeks then..
kary: is your baby still breeched? most babies should have turned head down by now. a normal/routine ultrasound scan would show whether your baby is head down or not!
I believe around this time.. the baby should have turned. if not turned yet, it might mean it would be breeched at birth as there is increasingly less space to move around the womb now.
and YES!! I agree! I do think the cord blood banking thing IS just to make money off worried parents too. it's actually quite insidious. they use parents' guilt to get them to do private cord blood banking. cos as a parent to be, I'd feel very terrible if my child or next child needed the cord blood for something life saving. but... how many people have actually used the cord blood of their baby?? public cord blood banking makes more sense.
And i agree with ya bout cord banking..

Hmmm I think the whole cord blood banking thing all depends on personal preference.. No right or wrong... It's just like insurance some pple buy them some dont't... Should just do your own research n see what you feel you need bah.... When you use it (Choy!) you will find it useful.. But when you dont you'll think it's a waste.. For me, hubby n I decided in cordlife.. Cos firstly we know from one of our friends who actually used it.. (well.... not a good thing) but you know, when you hear real life stories like that you can't help but to be on the safe side... Like my gynae says.. "If you think it's not expensive.. Then buy, no harm. But if it'll be a financial struggle then dont't." That's what she suggested to us when we asked for her opinion.
Anw mummies, i was at vivo giant yesterday n I found an alternative for some of you!!! they actually sell nursing bras too but dont expect nice patterns kind.. They only have the beige Color (n black?) it's just the very basic kind, costs $9.89 so if some of you can't wait for the delivery of the bras.. Or feel undecided with e size you can actually go there n try out the sizes (anw there ain't anyone there so you can try n try until you r happy n dont have to feel obliged to buy them the only thing is there are only giants in 3 locations (marine parade, vivo n tampines)
I was there to buy front button pyjamas.. Hahaha.. Yes i know... Of all places!!! Feels so Aunty.. Hahaha but no choice .. Those HDB kinds really Soh... (when I asked for hubby's approval he was like... " WAH SUPER SEXY... you wear that to bed I sure fall aslp immediately") hahahahhaha At least the one I got still feels "young" . Its white in color, plain deisgns with small daisy prints n it's cotton material.. Quite comfy...
Piglim... dont't worry.. Baby should be alright..
Just drink more water to keep yourself and baby hydrated.... Your baby's weight is just perfect...
Mine is overweight, but hopefully I can push her through.. 2 more weeks to go for me.. I'm getting worried too, cus my Gynae doesn't wanna see me every 2 weeks or weekly... So I just have to gauge baby's weight and eat accordingly.. Take care of my diet...
Oh... Giant yea? I'll go have a look too.. My maternity leave starts on 27th... Wanna go shopping and walk alot... Walking helps on the dilation... Hopefully my baby guai guai and comes out faster when she's due..
And oh, on the raspberry leaf tea, is it too late if I start drinking now? Week 38....
Enjoy yr holidays mummies!!!
wow i didn't have any raspberry leaf tea... is it very effective? i didn't really read up on all these stuff..
cordlife... well we just signed up already. i wasn't keen until some unfortunate event recently... a close relative down with leukemia and needed the nephew/niece cordblood... the condition was going down very fast in the past 2 months but recovering after the cordblood... so i started to think twice.
oops, ganjiong me ordered nursing bras on the site already, so now awaiting arrival of the delivery.
my baby has been kicking in one position for weeks... the legs always kicking at top right side, body at left side, slant from the right bottom where the head is... no change... kicking always at the right side where the feet are, and hiccups always on the left where the body is... keke...
Regarding the raspberry leaf tea, from reading, it seems will help to strengthen the pelvic and uterine muscles so that once labour does start, the muscles will be more efficient.
Raspberry leaf tea and labour
Where can I get this reapberry tea leaf? thanks.
can get from iherb/vitacost
i tried looking for the raspberry leaf tea too, but cant find in any shop. found one online - Organic Raspberry Leaf - NaturaWorks Pte. Ltd.
the price is $9.90/each and if you buy in bulk 6pcs would be $9.50/each....i placed the order via SMS @ +65 93381038 and can do self collection. So, my hubby is going to collect them for me tomorrow at Raffles Place MRT. They do delivery as well. check out their website
Wow... i was 'absent' from this forum since friday and sooo many posts alrd!!
Felicity, i think my baby is in the same position as yours!! hahaha.. I think mine has been in the same position since wk 29. The head is already down on my left side and always kicking on my upper right side.. Sometimes i felt the foot kinda striding along my tummy and so ticklishh.. hhahahaa..
I just heard about this raspberry leaf tea thing.. i'm on my 34wks now, can start drinking alrd??
I think you gals really have a good weight babies.. My last appt on 33wks 6days, baby only 2.1kg.. I think she will be a slightly small baby.. gynae mentioned the weight is average though, she also asked me again if i were still determined to delivery normally.. She said baby weight normal, everything is normal, just that my body size not normal.. =.="""
My next appt will be in 2 wks time.. and then start from then it will be weekly basis..
Congrats on all mummies who have started their maternity leave!! I'm still stuck here in office.. haih.. will be working until i pop out i think.. huhuhuhu
I have never heard of the raspberry leaf tea too, but now after reading your comments dont know if its too late to start.
I started week 35 yesterday!! 5 weeks to go woohoo... I keep telling my baby that she can come out anytime after week 37, cos i'm getting impatient and I cant wait to see her and hold her..
Eeneyminey - I think your baby and my baby almost the same size, mine was 2.03 kgs at 33 weeks. Have stopped worrying about the baby's weight now.. Just keep praying for a healthy and a normal baby And I have also stopped reading websites about the whole giving birth process....
Have any September mommies already given birth? 10 days for our month to start !!
you all can start drinking anytime from 3T onwards. not sure it is gonna be effective, but no harm trying. =)
I guess many of us are on the waiting game now!
REaching 38 weeks in 2 days time.
Excited, nervous and hope i can tell what is contractions!
I am still hesitant in trying out herbal tea but i did hear that raspberry good for relaxing womb!
Already stopped work and starting my leave. My big tummy makes it difficult and scary to take the daily mrt with the crowd at peak hours!
hie all mummies.....yea!! i'm in my mid 38 weeks now.... counting the times...and i'm just going to start drinking the raspberry leaf tea tomorrow only..hope it's not too late..... no harm trying......
i'm starting my maternity leave only next monday...i agree with rosemummy that it's so difficult to take bus/mrt at peak hours...
worse in bus, nobody seems to care and give up their seats either....
eeneyminey, felicity.....i think my baby is the same position as yours....baby always kick on the top right side...but her body sometimes will move from the left to the right, and vice versa...so my tummy is like crooked.... hahahaahha
and hiccups will always be at the bottom, that's where her head is right now....
raspberry leaf tea can start drinking in the 3rd trimester, with 1 cup daily...and then gradually increase to 4 cups daily when near to term....
Hee eeneyminey no worries about maternity leave start already or not... I think work also good, keep you occupied n worked out.. I'm starting to slack a lot.. But still have markings to be completed so doing work while on my bum throughout the day at home!!
Just back from gynae appt.. My baby around 3.2-3.3kg now.. Doc says next week if over 3.5kg we'll look into possibility of induction.. I hope next week just nice baby wanna pop when I go Thomson Medical Center for appt
Doc says my girl has long legs... Measure weight from body is around 3.2kg n measure from femur length is around 3.3kg... Lots of space n fluid inside, doc says baby very happy like stay bungalow lol... And she's always kicking me with those long legs!
Im 38 weeks 2 days today, I think too late to start buying n drinking the tea now .. Yup nlipeng my bump always crooked one too!
So exciting!!! From my facebook, already got few mommies gave birth and this long weekend i think got 3 babies came out alrd.. hahaha.. Super exciting seeing the newborn baby pics, makes me cant wait to see my also.. But now still at 34wks, i keep telling baby to endure at least 4 more weeks to meet us..
Hopefully this thread still can go on even after all of us give birth alrd.. as a first time mom, i still need lots of advice and a place to rant after pregnancy..
Jia you to all of us!!!
felicity, baby has long legs are good though...she will be tall and pretty
i dont't know how much my baby weighs now...but i think yours would be alright....gambate for both of us ya.... hihi.....
aiya, the tea ...i just buy and drink it...doesnt matter if still make it or not....i placed order yesterday and hubby collect for me today...start drinking tonight....if it doesnt help on the labor, it will still help you on your post delivery....it's good for the uterus something...i've read it, but forgot already... ahahahahahaha
