Sometimes can be trickle, sometimes can be alot. Actually .. Best is call doc and describe & let him decide. Tho I know that water breaking can also happen without labor, for those cases, usually docs will monitor & try and induce coz losing amniotic fluid means baby's space is more cramped & infections can be introduced without mucus plug.
I usually play the kiasu mum and call and ask my doc about every slight thing. They understand that from moms.
Ok. I'll get it checked out. Thanks for the concern
wow...just read all the post and stories here...really thanks to all the mummies to share your experiences. I'm also FTM and right now in my mid 38 weeks. no signs of contractions at all...i'm also preparing myself to go through without epi....
determination is what is important!!
anyway Ain, how are you? delivered yet? am getting anxious now..
My doc just need me to track my baby movement. So far hes moving well. unless if there is any bloody show, regular contractions every 10mins, baby doesnt move, or waterbag burst then can head to the hospital.
Anyway when is your due date? And where are you giving birth at? Me singapore general hospital
oh...mine is on 1st of Sept...and i'm going to deliver at KK Hospital....
it's great to hear that your baby is on the right track...he's coming soon so, right now you must be very anxious...i'm also anxious for you....do share with us on your delivery ya.... so right now, have you felt your contractions yet?
Yup but not regular. very weird cos i will normally get my contractions at night. Do you have any progress yet? I got mixed feelings right now. Lol. Anxious, excited, scared and nervous at the same time. May i know whats your baby wt for now? Mine was 2.5kg at 36 weeks check up. And what are you having? Gal or boy?
Oh... I dont't have any progress for now.. No contractions yet... I'm having a baby girl.. Hehe, and on my week 35 check up she's already whopping 3kg!! So I'm kinda watching my food intake already.. Cus she gained from 1.4kg to 3kg in a months time... Kinda shocked me... Lol....
I'm feeling anxious, happy, used to feel scared and nervous but now no more.. Cus I put faith in myself that I can endure the pain.. Have to mentally be positive... Haha
You can do it too!! Be positive and strong!!
It's ok as long as she is healthy.. when is your next check up? Mayb you shud request from your gynae to check on your dilation. My next check up will be on the 27th aug 2 days before my due date n hopefully will be my last check up! ) Cant wait to meet my baby and ppl around me have been asking if i had my baby. Quite annoying. Haha.
Are you working? Started your maternity leave already? I had just started today and the time feels like passing very slow to me. :/
yea...as long as baby is healthy....my next check up is 28th Aug, hahahaha...so near yours and mine....will get my gynae to check on dilation and baby's weight as well.... bt i weigh myself now, i lose some weight... dont know if it's normal?
oh, i cant wait to see my baby girl too..been dreaming about her so much lately... hahahaha
i will start my maternity next monday only, taking 1 week before my due date.... for i travel to work by bus, abit cumbersome....
Yes its normal.. I didnt gain any weight for the last two check ups.. I was a bit worried too. But my hubby said im the one whose losing weight cos normally baby will gain around 200g each week on our last tri.. But so far i have gained quite a lot too.. Total of 15kg and lost around 2kg maybe? :/
First baby the pain started around 3.30pm. Had epidural at 4pm, baby delivered with forceps.
Second baby I went into hospital at 6pm, started pushing at 8. Baby was out by 8.20pm.
Seems that your labors were fast and easy! How great!
Thanks for sharing anyway.
Yup first one labour was about 3-4hrs long and second was 2and a half hours. Second one came early though at 36weeks. Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy before welcoming the sleepless nights!
Just delivered at 38 weeks 4 days~
Contraction starts when I wake up... 7+ in the morning? Initially just feel like gg to poo, later starts to get painful and really frequent so I totally freaked out. Each contraction makes me feel like peeing/pooing. Around 8:40am see watery bloody mess on my panty liner when I went to toilet once again due to the contraction. Luckily hubby on mc so drove me down to Thomson Medical Center. Used gas. Natural birth, vacuum assisted, without epi. Delivered at 11:50am, baby at 3.36kg ^^ now lying in the premium suite cos run outta single room so hubby upgraded
Wow! Congrats felicity you made it! you must be proud of yourself How many cm were you when you reach Thomson Medical Center??
Thank you!! was around 2 cm when I reached at 9+
I was induced on the 27th july which was baby's due date. First prostin inserted at 7am, waited till 9am and only 2cm dilated. 2nd prostin at 2pm, waited till 4pm and only 3cm. Next prostin supposingly to be inserted at 2am but contraction got too frequent i requested for gas mask. they brought me down to labour ward at 9.30pm and my water bag suddenly burst. Still 3cm only at that point of time but cannot insert prostin anymore after water bag burst so my gynae say must put drip. Thats when i feel the most pain. Initially didnt want to have epi. Tolerate until next morning 9am, didnt sleep the whole night but still 3cm and the contraction getting worse. Couldnt take it anymore and asked for epi. Felt so much better after getting it. Thats when i finally get to rest and shortly after 1-2hrs i was 5cm dilated. 2pm already 10cm but gynae say must wait for epi effect to wear off so that easier to push so my gynae came at around 5.20pm and in less than 5mins time my babyboy is out. 2.9kg. i abit regret not getting the epi earlier. Suggestion is if your cervix refuse to open even after induction, should try having the epi. Might help. Good luck to all.
Felicity, congrats!!!! You have successfully given birth without epi!!! Wow... So happy for you....
Felicity, were you induced?? How i wish im at your place right now. Been having cramps, but no show or water burst, just that i have lost my mucus plug. Hope you have a speedy recovery so tomorrow you can discharge already ?
Atleast you can tahan the pain for many hours!! Was it a planned induction or your own request??
Hi Experienced Mommies,
I wud like to know if you are able to choose your own position while giving birth? And on which position were you in? Thanks in advance.
Thank you nlipeng! Ain I was not induced, had contraction when I woke up. Will be discharged later. vonniesia wow, I dont know if I can tahan if I have to go through such long hours of pain!! *salutes*
I read up on the positions before but when I was in labour I was in too much pain and too exhausted (from the constant pushing) to even think about it... So the midwives just put my legs up and told me to hold into my thighs, open wide and push hard and thats what I did...
Oh ok, cos i heard that lying down is the worst position to give birth.. How many stitches did you get?? Was it painful? :/
Yup I've heard too but I was too exhausted to be in any other position... I have not't had breakfast n usually I can't function with my most impt first meal! I'm amazed I could push the baby out but that really expended all of my energy.. So much that I didn't even budge when doc was stitching... No energy to react... Can feel the needle poke but not really feel the pain. I think I heard doc says around 2 stitches but he stitched for very long n when I asked how many stitches halfway through his stitching he says dont worry he's just overlapping the stitches so won't tear easily. This morning he came to check, the stitch n wound so far so good
Thats good to hear was the tear natural or episiotomy was performed?? Sorry for asking too much. Nervous .
