Felicity - I know trying not to worry .... My mum said that I was very troublesome as a baby, she thought she made a mistake calling me Kary cos I always wanted to be carried lol.. So maybe payback time for me after baby arrives. But yea when I'm having sleepless nights I'll just think of all of you, and will realise that you'll went through the same thing.. Everyone says the first month is the hardest, then it either gets better or you just learn to adjust and are more prepared.
Erlina, Memory and Sapphire - Even I have the same symptoms you girls are having except the diarrhoea part.. But pain in my pelvis, my stomach cramps. Everytime my stomach hardens quite a bit and I keep hoping that these are the contractions it just doesnt come back in time for me to time it.. When it comes again I even forget what time it came the previous time, so I know that this is not it. Guessing this is all in preparation for the real thing, only then it will be 100 times more in terms of pain.
Reiann - My thoughts are exactly the same, wanna sleep for atleast 6 hours continuously without having to wake up to pee or because my side or back hurts from my sleeping posture.. And I'm done having that dragon inside me breathing out sooo much fire.. bahhh.. Though I dont't think the long hours of sleep are gonna be seen anytime soon, atleast now I know after I wake up to pee, I can go back to sleep when the baby is around, there will be crying and pee and poo included too lol.
Erlina, we have the same edd!!! mine also on 29th sept and this friday i also have check up with my gynae, which gynae are you seeing? will you be delivering at Thomson Medical Center? mine is dr adelina wong.. I also starting my ML on 24th!! lolz.. dont wanna waste the time for resting before delivery, i dont feel really tired or anything as yet. somemore if i'm at home, i also will be alone, so better to be in office, if anything happen still got people here to help out.
Regarding stomach cramp or pelvin pain, just yesterday i felt like a pain on my right pelvic when i stand up n walk. but not super pain or anything.. I dont know if it means baby has engaged already or not..
As for diarrhea, i just got it today!! lolz.. just right after lunch i had a super bad diarrhea, keep farting non stop and i can say my whole life that's like the worst farting marathon i've ever had.. lolz.. lucky toilet quite empty, the smell and the sound really unbearable. felt so bad for others if they were there..
Felicity, will it helps if you give pacifiers? Thinking of your condition, i wonder how to cope too if later my baby is like that. Somemore my ml only for 2 months.. huhuhu..
Hi eeneyminey, so coincidental!! Ya, will be delivering at Thomson Medical Center, but I'm seeing dr Wong Mun that at gombak Thomson medical, near my place. Probably, we'll really give birth at the same time..
So exciting and nervous at the same time!! Hubby keep asking me not to use epidural! Wonder whether i can tahan the pain..
Maybe it is a blessing in disguise. As you said you are petite and small build. So with all the exercise maybe you can get to enjoy natural birthing which is an excellent experience. Once too big will be c-sect no choice. Anyway now you 37wks, maybe let baby decide when & how to come . As long healthy most important and not distress.
Btw those who delivered at Thomson Medical Center or delivering soon any full day carpark coupons or advise about parking? Coz the parking there is atrocious. Tia
erlina good that you r offloaded.. Mine not, that's why I took ML earlier.. Wanted to do my own prep n run some errands.. In the end ML starts 21 aug, went back sch on 22 aug to complete some work n attend cca promotion ceremony, 23 aug morning 7+ start contraction.. Cannot imagine if I'm in sch, will be during morning assembly! Made appt to have haircut on 24th never get to go... very soon, all the best!
Kary ya my mummy friends in facebook all telling me first month is like that, will get better.. Must endure... so, enduring!
Eeneyminey.. My baby rejects the pacifier that I have.. My friends recommend nuk pacifier so I told hubby to buy but he will only come over the weekend.. Hope it'll help!!
Wow felicity, so xiong.. Ya, coz change school in June, so, that's why they have prepared and plus not so much commitment. I would say I'm really lucky.. I can't imagine if I'm still in my old school, think will be like you. Work till no day no night! Think now your full attention now is with your baby now..
Really ? Coming soon, can't wait for her to be out, but, also worry.. Will have another set of things to cope with..
Now at wk 37 day 3... Baby is 3kg already... Im starting ml this thurs! Coz i drive to work, so need to stop earlier... Otherwise, dont know what to do if i got contractions on the road! :/
Pelvic muscles always aching too... According to prenatal class, is coz joints r loose to prepare for labour... Having loose bowels too... Having menses cramps everyday too... But feet not swollen yet! :/ dont know when baby wanna see the world...
Trying to walk more, but it's really very tiring to carry a watermelon walking around! :P
Omg eeneyminey my hubby says he bought nuk silicon pacifier >< I thought I read newborn better use latex, later can use silicon.. He said he saw both but decided to get silicon..
Oh when I just woke up n started having contraction it felt like mild menstrual cramps with poo poo feeling, keep gg to toilet until getting more frequent (every 10 min or less?) n getting painful then realized is contractions... From 7+ to 8am, all within an hour! Thinking maybe I slept thru the mildest part of contractions...
Hey mummies! I've been busy trying to clear my work and do handover .. finally finished my last day of work and my leave starts tomorrow! EDD 24th Sept ..38weeks and 1 day now.. but i hope i'll carry my girl awhile longer... Tomorrow is my gynae appt, shall check with her if baby is engaged. I'm super tired and have not been sleeping enough ..just cannot lie down without pain on the abdominal area, pelvic area and eveywhere ! I think i subconciously scratched my whole waist, back, tummy, butt and thighs wholenight ! The itch is unbearable..
As i mentioned earlier that i hope to carry beyond 40 weeks is coz i just got news frm my confinement lady last weekend that she just started a job with another family... can only make it end of the month.. if i pop early, she'll send her friend as replacement first then she'll come later.. i dont't really feel good having a change of hands in between.. so i feel if i can wait, i should just tahan till end of month..
Recently for the past week is the normal loose stools and some really uncomfortable kicking from baby.. feel this pain on the bladder that is really straining at times.. pain till need to clench my feet! Anyone experiencing same kind of pain in the bladder-vaginal area? Hmm i also had some menses cramp too.. so worried can pop anytime.. lol
Hi erlina, memory... yep according thank you o gynae its cos baby is slowly easing thru the birth canal n so will hav the pain.. my edd 26 sept....Originally Posted by erlina040:690874
So excited to know that baby is making her way down!!! So, how's your baby's weight after today's checkup? Did your gynae check any of cervix dilation? I'm hoping that my gynae will not check that before delivery, quite scare of it.. Think must be super uncomfortable..
baby's weight today est. 3.5kg, dr says on birth should b around 3.3 to 3.5kg.... tats a scary thing cos doc says to prepare labour will b slightly tedious..... but he doesn't want to do any cervix dilation test nor induction cos he says for first baby its best to let him come naturally... all's well after today's appt... will hav to continue to wait......................Originally Posted by erlina040:691157
Ya, heard checking of cervix dilation is quite uncomfortable and painful. Understand not all gynae will check.. Some will wait till real symptoms kick in. Seems like our baby is getting ready to come out so we shall patient for the actual day.
Yup my gynae never check for dilation also.. I also never ask so dont know the reason. I have friend telling me 37th week onwards will check. My last check was 38wk2days.. Only say baby head very low almost engaged n if in a week's time at next appt if she over 3.5kg will induce. baby delivered 2 days later..
Hmm im.hving bloody show... But no contractions.... Dr says go to hospital hope not false alarm
Wow! I think bloody show need to go soon as contractions will
come right after.. so excited or you!!! Keep us posted! Jiayou jiayou!!
My friend just had her VE check last week because suspected to have preterm labour sympthoms, she said she screamed when the doc checked her. the doc immediately said that she better take epi during labour if this kind of pain also screamed.. hahahhaa.. she then told me if during labour need to check like this for so many times she might kick the nurse in the face accidentally.. lol i can just laugh listening to her.. super funny..
Hmmm i thought gynae will always put Lubrication on his/her fingers before VE? So far mine hasnt been painful... Coz my gynae will put KY jelly...
