Ooh..Starling also Punggol area. I delivered at Mt Alvernia. Which gynae are you seeing?Originally Posted by rainbowting:757462
Dr Kenneth Lee or Dr Kang Wee from Mt.A
Which gynae you are seeing? there aren't many gynae at Mt A right?
Mi and L0r3tTa r seeing the same gynae - Dr Chen Chern Yi at punggol.
Have you started to take ML to rest at home alrd? The day is approaching soon.
I have also started my ML tdy. Planning to take as much rest as possible too. Getting heavier each day n waiting for the signs. seems like baby is enjoying all the new yr goodies n gambling lol
Oh I think the clinic is crowded bcos there is another GP. so not all there r Dr Chen's patient. Longest waiting time was 30mins to an hr.
Baby Chevelle decided to pop on very'day~ 13 days early!
My last visit to Dr Kang was last Friday n she didn't do any physical check on me.
My contractions started at 10plus.. called the clinic n they ask mi go straight to labour ward..
i headed to the labour ward at 12plus, after a shower n bfast.. The nurses there all very nice & friendly.. Put on ECG monitor contractions..
all else happen very fast after that I delivered by 230pm..
Congrats Pinkk11. Did you take any form of pain relieve?
it was painful but I guess I was already mentally prepared to go without the epidural, so it helped with the pain management.
i think lots of walking n moving about during the last few weeks has some help to speed up the delivery process too.
All the mum-to-bes, hope yr delivery will be as smooth-sailing as well.

Well,its worth reconsidering it..in my opinion, we go thru this just once or twice or thrice in our lifetime..depends how many babies you want to have of cos.
My say would be that you will be very satisfied and it is very worth your every single effort for every push you go thru with your baby for your baby to meet you.

I didn't want to take epidural coz I was afraid I can't really feel myself pushing and also the possible side effects like backaches n difficulty in urinating after delivery..
Hi all mummies
I've given birth. Was put to induce as baby getting overdue. So here's my birth story.
Inserted 1 pill on Sunday night and was only 1cm dilated. Pain level 0-1. Contraction still not strong enough.
Monday morn 9+, gynae came to burst water bag. Then once drip started, all the contractions began. Pain level 5-6 then increased to 7-8.
At 12pm only 2cm dilated despite all the pain. Used laughing gas but did not help much to relief the pain, instead, felt so slpy.
Not sure how long more I can take the pain, mayb 10 more hours, I decided to succumb to epidural. Which I think was worth it as it greatly reduces my pain n allows mi to dilate in just an hr. n the rest is to push the baby out.
Jia you to the rest of the mummies.
Birth wt at 3.1kg. I did not expect him to reach 3 kg. cos initially at wk 37 est wt is only 2.2kg. Quite small. Must b all the new yr goodies that I fed him before giving birth. Lol
Try not to induce. Cos you have to start from only 1cm dilatation to 10cm. have to wait very long n painful if you dont take any pain relief.
Have you dilated yet?
i will go and see gynae tomorrow again (39w+5d)....
last time he didn't check whether I was dilated or not and he didn't do CTG (or CGT) for me....
he just told me baby is engaged but that doesn't mean when baby will come out

Hi Starling, congrats!!! How long were you overdue?
Hi mummies, went for my checkup just now. Doc says I need to have action plan next wk w40. He suggested induction or c sec. Cervix still not dilate but baby head d engaged. Any exp on induction? I'm scared it will b very painful n time consuming. Pls advise n share yr opinion. Tq!!!
Hihi Apr Gal,
I finished my checkup in the morning as well... 1 cm dilated. As I have gestational diabetes, my gynae doesn't want me to go overdue (otherwise baby might be too big). He arranged me to go induction tomorrow night........(coz the EDD based on my own calculation is Fri...)
Huh....my friend suggested me use epidural at very beginning.... I will see how it goes ....
