I have some yellowish discharge, I told doc and she says its braxton hicks.. really hope baby can be full term, or at least after 36 weeks at least...
Is the yellow discharge a common sign of Braxton hicks?
Do you feel any other discomfort?
Did any other mummies go for the 4D scan?
I not sure, not matter how I wash I still have yellow discharge and sometimes clear discharge... 4D scan think if want to go have to go before 32 weeks or something... haha think dont need go wait for them to pop out... shld be just a few more weeks...
Hi alag, no need waste $$ on 4D scan since baby out soon. If you want, buy 4d from Singapore pools, then strike then even better! Hehee
Hi autumn fall, I got the cramps too early to be Braxton kicks n it was confirmed by my gynae so was on bed rest since early dec. now finally off medication so that baby can pop out naturally. Very nervous everyday coz tue checkup gynae say baby can pop anytime. N my hubby has not buy the new baby mattress to replace the old 1. Sterilizer still not wash yet since 3 yrs ago. I must everyday hurry him or he will Bo chap till I deliver.
I didn't go for it either because I didn't want to find out the gender of the baby. Afraid it might be too obvious.
Seems like most of you guys have gotten almost everything ready... I better buck up!!
hi alag, coz we all worried baby will pop by 36 weeks so faster prep everything ready then last few weeks can rest n relax before big day.. hahaha more kiasu bah. just take your own time n relax.
Hey ladies, want to ask if you have any recommendation for the post natal massage (jamu)?
Ideally, I am looking at one that can travel to my place. Appreciate the tips!
Hi autumn fall, I got sarong (batik material) with zip till the tummy as pj gown because I went to some shops all say dont't have my size. I buy at bukit Timah plaza when I company hubby n son go c doc. That was my only chance my hubby willing to bring me out so I Bo Bian buy the sarong gown. Cost me $16.80 per pc. you can try wet market with shops. Usually will sell pj.
I m now 34 weeks. Ya my gynae say early contractions likely will have early birth. Now tahan till 34 weeks n gynae assure me baby is fine so I m more at ease. Just now lunch hubby go buy diapers n nappy cream other small daily baby items.. Haaa.. 1 thing lesser to harass my hubby . Haahaa.. This weekend I will chase him buy mattress.
Eh when will we start doing the massage? I will be asking for contacts maybe I pass you once I have, alag?
And do we do 5 days in a row?
Wah 34 weeks and coming out already... happy for you, I wish mine will be earlier too.. began washing baby towels, bedsheets and swaddling cloths today. Planned to pack my hospital bag too in case suddenly want to give birth lol... so kiasu...
The admin ask me call them once I back home n settle down with baby, maybe 3-5 days later then their auntie will come on the 8th day then do continually for 5 days, but they sun dont't do so they will plan it such that 5 days can be done continually.
Thanks for the recommendation!! I'd check it out. I heard binding can get quite uncomfortable too... But 5 days seems reasonable.
So far, only managed to book my confinement nanny...
Thanks so much!
Do we have to wash all the baby items first? It didn't even occur to me.
Ahh beginning to panic. I just went for my check up. Entering 32 weeks but doctor has given me hospitalization leave as my little one is sitting a little too low for comfort.
Have to wash... and must wash with special baby detergent... can get from normal giant or sheng shiong... oh no alag, hospital leave for how long?
Iceydragon, was your first one early too? They say usually first one early subsequent also early... isit true? And do you gals experience cramps? I have cramps and doc check says no dilation sigh... no dilation how come cramp? Very confused now...
Baby is 2.3kg at 33weeks now... but tummy is extremely small I look like im onlY 5 mths.. does belly size matters? Doc never say anything though
Autumnfall my 1st 1 was at 38 weeks, I consider full term . I think cramp because uterus contract n expand as baby moves bah. Dilation is when hormones say baby want come out. So normal to have cramps with no dilation. Belly size dont't matter. my baby is 2.3 kg for 34 weeks but I look like 40weeks due coz I previously already has a tummy. Haaa.. Baby healthy, moving (10movements every 12hrs as per my gynae) n got weigh gain most Impt.
alag, no panic, relax and rest at home since you have the hospital leave. Try to reduce walking too much. Ask hubby do all heavy things for you, you must relax then body relax then baby relax.
Thanks iceydragon, wah you sound very calm and experienced, must learn from you! I hope baby pops out anytime after 37 weeks, been working late everyday and have been soooo tired.. dont knw how to continue for the next 7 weeks so I console myself say anytime after 4 weeks... hope I dont have to wait 7 weeks to pop, so tired and stressful everyday lol...
Maybe coz I rest 3mths , dont't feel the anxiety of working life. Just relax n try to rest more. If can dont't work so late or baby will feel stressful too. Maybe it's time to dedicate some ask yr colleagues help? Sometimes I at home get angry at my son, I also feel cramps here n there so now I feel that stress has to be manage or will affect the baby n the contractions too.
Thanks autumn and icey!
I feel like icey is the guru for us first timers hehe!
My hospitalization leave is still 21 march. By then I would be 35-36 weeks so I guess my gynae would feel more at ease if I deliver then. She explained that the tingling sensation is probably caused by the low position of baby pressing against the pelvic bone. But so far, cervix seems fine.. Sigh but I dont know how to get out of work excuse of a lot of commitments.
Do you guys know if kodomo has baby detergent? I like the baby wash scent!
Am 34 weeks now and feeling super tired! Have oedema which is swelling of hands and legs due to water retention. Hurts big time cos can't bend my left fingers and the hand feel very weak also. Really can't wait for this condition to be gone, cos I also can't sleep very well because of it. This last stretch seems quite tough for me, wanna go out of the house also can't walk too long, wanna cook for myself cos no maid but hands too painful, sometimes even too painful to wash face.
Anyone here got this problem?
later going to see Gynae, and baby thru ultrasound! Yay!
Do you ladies talk to your babies? I keep talking to him, every time I feel him move, and he responds at times! At least this gives me some joy overriding the pain from the swoon hand n fingers!!
