Oh my gynae just glanced at my tummy and said that it looks very very low and tight.. Then he asked me to lie down and he started pressing my tummy.. Then he did a normal ultrasound scan and told me the baby looks like he will come out any day now.. There's no more space inside for him and he's very low already.. So he prescribed me the two medications to apparently help me delay the birth..
Ooooh oh I have my pre admission letter today too! But I have not't packed my hospital bag yet! I keep reminding myself to do it but it's like suddenly last minute I'm getting some jitters and I'm telling myself there's still time.. Haha! Oh and I'm still having bi weekly checkups..
Good morning Mommies!
Not feeling so tired today.. wonder is it bcoz i ate lesser (& healthier stuff) for dinner last nite and digestive sys no need to work too hard during the nite.. Hmm.. or mayb coz weekend getting nearer..??
phoebe84: wow.. that fast! weekly appt usually start in the last month?? i have not start drinking coconut yet.. coz i dont know whether it will cause baby to come out earlier.. i hope baby will b on time.. dont want to start maternity so soon..
selp: when will b your next check up? if gynae said you may deliver early, i would think he/she will want you to go weekly to monitor? hmm.. thot last month usually will b weekly .. i'm still bi-weekly.. not sure when will start my weekly..my tummy has been feeling rather tight and uncomfy too..
camcam: i also have packed yet! and also have not fill up the pre-admission form.. oops.. i guess i should be the last here to pop.. do you still carry your gal? mayb shouldn't? may coz baby to do down further?
faith86: i think engaged mean baby head has gone down into the opening to the birth canal and that means lesser chances for baby to suddenly change position? can ask gynae?
visualspells: yah my boy still in breech as of last wk (and i think still is).. hope he will turn soon.. been talking to him.. wondering if my tummy is getting too tight for him to move.. but his weight was 1.6kg as of 32 wk.. not as big as the other mummies here yet.. trying to research what exercise i can take to encourage him to turn.. what yoga pose did you do that make baby turn the wrong way?? i sho take note not to do that.. haha..
welshia: jiayou! baby may have hit 2kg + already.. i cant wait to see my boy next mon too! hope he will guai guai takes nice pic..
LilMissy: I cfm with you again ok.. coz hubby overseas now.. need to check timing with him.. did your gynae mentioned you will pop early too??
@selp: i am now in my 35 weeks, and will be seeing my gynae again tomorrow. i just packed baby's things last night, but have not prepared my things and my docs. lol...
@chocoholic: well, she did not explicitly say that i will pop early. but she did the scan last week, and looking at the baby, she said "your edd is 7/12 right? hmm...i think 1-2 weeks before you might deliver you know..." and i was like wahhhhhhhhh
Niwae, oops...Hubby just got a call-up for the morning of 16/11, our supposed maternity photoshoot.
Anybody has other dates in mind? Maybe it might be good since most are unable to make it on 16/11 niwae...
By the way, second-time mummies, may I know how do I know which diaper size I should buy now since NB size & S size overlap each other?
There are NB diapers for babies up till 5 kg & S size diapers for babies from 3-5 kg. I am so clueless...
I bought 1 pack of 46 diapers for NB size & 2 packs of Size 1 (40pcs each)
kokura: i think diaper size also depends on the brands & baby size?? some brand i see for NB till 4kg only.. if baby very big i guess NB diapers mayb will only last a month before gets too tight? i have friends passing me NB diapers coz their baby grew out of the diapers fast..
Wow. That's good for you. Nobody gave me any... I only bought S size, not NB size because their weight range overlap each other.
The only NB size I have are all samples, so it is only about 4 pieces I think?
Erm... I hope my baby can fit nicely into S.
I also bought night diapers which are more expensive. Come to think of it, since the baby will wake up every 2-3 hours to feed, there is no difference between day & night usage isn't it? Now I wonder why did I buy it in the first place....
May I know if there are any mummies here who have been taking organic food/drinks regularly to ensure healthier vitamins for their baby? (^.^)
I know Selp mummy has been doing this. Who else? And what kind of organic food/drinks have you been taking?
I have been taking organic brown rice & organic soy milk, occasionally organic xiao bai cai & asparagus.
kokura: mayb you should standby some NB size diaper? in case baby small, cant fit the bigger size one? and i heard baby use diaper like nobody biz.. coz everyday is sleep, eat & shit only.. haha! i didnt know there is a day or night diaper for baby.. hmm.. i try to opt for organic food if there is a choice.. but mainly just normal food..
Went for my check up today. Did the strep b test. Hope everything is fine.
My little one weighs 2.3kg already. Haha grown 600g in two weeks Wow.
Hi all, I am new to this room, my edd is on 19dec, I looking for day nanny to take care of my son after my confinement, any suggestion out there?
Went for my weekly test on fri.
Found to be Strep B positive. But i'm sensitive to all the antibiotics, so gynae will only treat me at labour. I hope there wun be any complicatioms.
It was hard to weigh the lil one this time round cos of her position, but estimated to be about 2.4kg. Gynae commented that baby has went down slightly.
If I didn't recall wrongly .. usually hospitals are using huggies newborn.
also for my 1st , I stocked up many newborn pampers! coz these newborns are using like 6-8 diapers every day! it's really like nobody business .. pee n poo pee n poo..
But just dont't stock up too many of same brand coz you never know if your baby will b allergy .. like my boy .. he is actually allergic to pampers (which is expensive diaper brand)...!!!
I dont't think there is day or night for new born diapers.
Nowadays I couldn't sleep well at nights.. Just sitting down on bed.. Achy all over body.. Boo!!!
Seems like some of us will be 37w next week? That's like soon one of us will b first to pop! Excited !!!
@muffie: nice!!! Cant wait to see the pics!!!
