my baby is already 2.5kg at 35 weeks and my cousin-in-law said my baby will reach more than 3kg if i were to due in 37 or 38 weeks..
i really do hope my baby can hit the 3kg mark.. makes me feel safer that baby is in good shape.. but of cuz not too big that i have to do c-sec.. cuz i really wanna have natural birth..
just called my CL to inform her of my delivery next mon so she can get ready. She sounded so cool (previously was ok one) n said I made her lost one month biz cos now she can't accept another case in Mac. before cny keep calling me and ask me induce in w37. I was like y should I go induce out of nothing at w37??? Then a week later she call to ask if I delivered then she say she got another case in Mac but she did not accept cos d accepted my deposit n she will keep to her promise n dont want spoil her own name. At first I thought she so good n just wanna earn d extra $1k during cny n she say she bored at home. Then today sound cool n blame me. dont she no that as CL she can't possibly work full 12mth? By rite should give allowance in between each case? Now I'm scared that when she comes she will still show her temper or dont do things properly. Anyone got such exp to share n what should I precaution? Izzit wise to look for std by CL? N usually CL will come on d day I discharge or next day?
Im @ 35w gains about 26kgs...
Besides her, do you know any other CL? Any of your family members staying with you during your confinement?Originally Posted by Apr gal:761661
Sound not good of your confinement lady. In this case, you should have back up confinement lady or check someone can help. Why I say that, in case she is not pro enough or show temper then you can just ask her to leave. You have no worry becuase you have someone to help you.
One of my friend's confinement lady did not turn up when she delivered her baby. End up, my friend needs to search another confinment lady within few days. The reason given was she still with another employer. This is very rediculous reason. This thing can not be happen, as a confinement lady she should plan and give one or two month gap before she accepts another job. Just for sharing. Although not happen to me, but i feel angry for my friend.
I'm new in this thread. Will be having little princess at Thomson Medical Center. EDD on 10 March 2013.
Just went for checkup today. Will be having a big baby. Her estimated weight is already 3.6kg at 37wk 5days and worse still, baby still not engage yet. Not much sign of contraction also. Am wondering whether there is anyway to make the baby engage or trigger contraction as I am very worried that baby will be over 4kg at birth. Thinking of going for nature but if really over 4kg might have difficulty. Any advice?
Hi Ryca/Susannanation/nyukmooy, thanks for yr concern n advice. Told my hubby maybe he need to call her up later to ask d date for her Mac assignment, if can we will release her earlier rather than she simply do her job here. Or I will need to call those CLs I called before to c their availability. I think tats my solution for d time being or worst case is look from those agency.
If I release my CL earlier really not worth at my side cos I still need to give her 2 angpows n during d first 2weeks she dont really need to cook a lot tonics cos I won't be able to consume yetl. N my later weeks I will really need to find good one to take care me. But no choice rather than to have someone unhappy working for you... I wonder if she really did not accepted d job or she d had n dont know what to do now? just crossed my mind. I will let my hubby handle her cos I dont want to say silly things out of anger n end up regret.
Any one has trustworthy confinement ladies to recommend?
Hi thanks for yr advice. My hubby just called her up n they seem ok talk but my hubby also commented she is very small gas, seems to even dig back past past history n told my hubby we caused her list d cny 1k too cos I did not deliver earlier! I think tis CL is 'superb' too $$$ face!!!!
I agree with you nowadays all d CL seems to want everything to their convenience. I heard a lot of them eager to feed baby with FM n give excuse baby not enuf breast milk to drink.
Yeah I think you should get a new cl too...dont stress yourself during confinement with grouchy cl.. most of the cl nowdays only want the easy way out..like feeding baby wit formula milk.. hard to find a trustworthy one.. I wish I could help you
Yes when I hear the confinement lady saying that I need to feed my baby with formula so that they sleep better, I was immediately disappointed and upset... you see, even before they come over to help you they are already not supportive of full breastfeeding, I dont want my cl to come and tell me my breastmilk not enuf and keep pressurizing me to let baby drink formula milk... I hire them to teach me how to latch on and if they cannot deliver what they promise, it will just be a complete waste of money...
I told my cl firmly that I want to total breast feed my baby. Luckily my mom is around to help out and she supports breast feeding too. Some of the stuff my cl also told my mom no need to do like bathing baby with 'yellow nuts' to prevent jaundice but my mom insisted, so the cl got no choice hahaha, I heard from my friend, her coll's cl drank all the nourishes soup and ate all the ingredients then dilute it with water before gvg it to her coll..then the mother caught her doin that and terminated the cl immediately..
Hi ladies, I'm actually an early April mummy to be, and have been looking at posts here for sometime!
I'm actually very determined to have a natural birth and quite in tune to baby's position in my belly. From early on, I sorta know his head is on the left side of my womb and when I put lotion on my belly, I'll rub gently anti-clockwise to encourage baby to go towards the pelvic area. I will use a little little bit more strength when rubbing on his butt side so I dont't hurt his head...
Im 34 weeks already and my Gynae visit yesterday showed baby's head is engaged already. I believe this method helped somewhat, so if you are clear about your baby's body's position in your womb, then you can try using this method.
otherwise I read in baby enter.com that there are a few positions you can engage to encourage baby to go into the position for natural birth.
one of them is standing straight with legs spread apart, no need too far apart, and bending upper body to the front, the Mac to bend is perpendicular to your legs. If too big then just lean forward as far as you can. Earlier in my pregnancy I always do that when washing my face or coking, just a few times for less than a min.
or just bend on all fours on the floor and hold the position for a bit.
Hope these method works for you!!! Good luck!
omgosh that's a CL horror story !!!
Anyway Cupid00, the estimated weight of baby is -300g or +300g, so dont't worry so much.... Just do what you can for now and be less anxious ya!
Hi apr gal, you can arrange with her before hand when you r in hospital. If you r discharge in the morning can ask her to come noon. If discharge in the afternoon, can ask her to come the next day coz it will counted as one day even if she comes in the late afternoon or evening.
this is my first baby, haha!! Many ppl were surprising for my labour hours...
i think is my genetic from my family...my grandmother, my mum and most of cousins having short labour hours...
luckily I didn't take epidural, it's not worth to take!!
my hubby said you very easy and fast to give birth ...he said 2 yrs later, we work for 2nd baby...^^
Another things to share, before going to hospital to induce on the actual day...
i have opened all my drawers in my bedroom, they said it will shorter the labour hour...for me it's work!!!
