I just delivered my 2nd baby at 9.43 am today at Thomson Medical Center and she is 2.43 kg!
Congrats Mee212. Take care and rest well.. Hope to hear your birth story soon..
I'm into my week 36 plus and baby is at 3.1kg. Gynae was saying it's best that she can be delivered early, if not, will be too big and difficult to deliver naturally. So far, he didn't perform any swab test or any cervix dilation check. Just say if anything like water bag leak or show, go straight to Thomson Medical Center. Getting excited..
Hi mummies just wanna check. Nornally if gynae check 1cm dilated,is it to say I am near labour?
Congrats! Looking forward to your birth story! Rest well!Originally Posted by mee212:689428
Reiann - Good luck with your check up today!!
Eeneyminey - 16 times a day is like a lot.. I bought diapers to change about 12 times a day which will last me for two weeks, plus I have alot of those sample packs of drypers and huggies in the new born size. Will just need to stock up more I think, but told hubby lets just try what suits the baby's bum before we buy too much.
Piglim - Do the diaper liners actually help for the cloth diapers? Because I keep seeing alot of posts here with mommies wanting to sell their boxes of diaper liners that they have purchased.
How often do you new mommies give your babies a bath? And do you mean like a proper tub bath with soap or just a body sponge with water. Also, how do you clean your baby's mouth? Yea I keep thinking of things and then suddenly have soo many doubts in my head..
I bathe baby once a day-morning..just squeeze two drops of bathing soap.. No need to shampoo.. At night around 6/7 I'll just wipe baby ( sheng) actually you dont have to worry cos if you r delivering at Thomson, attend their breastfeeding class... All these will b taught. Any last min qns you can also ask them... Nurses all very friendly n helpful. As for e mouth, I bought an oral wipe from mums n babes.. dont have to do it everyday..once in every 2-3 days... what my confinement lady did was wet a cloth (small towel) then press on e gums n wipe the tongue...
Hey everyone! Waterbag burst on 06.09.12 at 9.35 am.. Delivered baby boy, 3.077 kg at 8.42 pm on the same day at Parkway East. Was at 39 weeks one day. Made it thru 11 hours of labour with laughing gas. No epidural!
Very sore below..As of right now, i dont think i ever want to go thru the labour process again. The last few moments leading to 10 cm dilation was the hardest!
Jiayou mummies! you can do it too!
congrats, caramelle. rest well
Congrats mee212 n caramellae! rest well n enjoy motherhood~ ^^
Congrats Caramellae! So impressive! 11hrs without epidural! Rest well!Originally Posted by Caramellae:689779
My baby girl was born on 6.9.12 at week 36 weeks 4 days and my birth story as below:
5.30 am - woke up because have some stomach pain like diarrhea and I went to toilet, nothing, tired and go back to sleep.
7.00 am - suddenly have sharp pain like mensus cramp and jump out from bed, felt wanna pass motion and went to toilet to poo. some mild contraction, 10-15 mins interval.
7.30 am - followed by some bloody discharge and wake up hubby. Called my gynae also to inform him the situation, my gynae asked to head to hospital directly. Then, I went to take shower and had a quick bite.
8.40 am - reached hospital and asked to go delivery suite. Change and midwife do some checking on me. Was 8-9 cm dilated.
9.15 am - my gynae came and check on me again, it's already 10 cm dilated but my contraction was not consistent and not strong. Put drips on me to make my contraction stronger.
9.20 am - was told by midwife whenever contraction come, hold breath and push so that can push longer.
My gynae came in also and with 2-3 pushes, my baby came out at 9.43 am with 3 stitches below.
Although is my 2nd baby, but still very painful at the last stage when you push baby out.
That's all my birth story, now trying to breastfeed my little one. You all can do it too!
My first child is 20 months. Yes, although I have fully dilated but still need go through contraction..
Have a smooth delivery!
Many of you ladies, didn't take epi .. really thumbs up for you gals.. I dont think I can make it without epi .. 1st n 3 rd trimester for me is already a night mare dont talk about labour pain. Nowadays due to excessive water retention even I walk my legs feel pain .. n cramps often .. too much pressure on them I guess .. already put on 25 kg .. no Joke !!
After reading mee212 birth story I feel nervous too .. cos tis few days keep having diarrhoea feel .. dont know whether is it a sign ?? Or just stomach upset ..
