I've been woken up in the early mornings for the past week by what I thought was the baby moving. It feels like the baby is trying to push his way up wards and my whole stomach gets hard.
I've just been reading online and it seems like they might be Braxton hicks. Anyone has that? And how do I differentiate baby from Braxton hicks? I'm only 20 weeks and 1 day.
Mine's a girl.Detailed scanning went great. My baby is slightly bigger than 22 weeks. 23 weeks plus. Gosh...I have to control my food intake!
How do you knw your placenta is low? Can we feel anything ?
Low lying placenta is not placenta praevia. Hope everybody is clear about this. There's chances that the placenta can move up. Placenta praevia is a much more serious case where the placenta just continues to go down and block your cervix.
how to know if placenta is low? ask your gyane, he/she should be able to tell you through the usual scans.
dont't stress yourself and if you want certainty you have to get your cervix check at yr gynae's.That's what i did. Sometimes you just gotta go to ease your mind.Do update us. Like we all say better be safe than sorry.
But that's my 2 cents worth opinion.
Hope everyone is coping well in your 2nd to 3rd trimester. My lil princess is a kicking machine. She gives me kicks very frequently. Even hub feels it. Its quite a wonderful feeling for me.
Hope all of you are enjoying the journey too.
Recently I've some issues, would like to get some advices here and see if anyone has similar experience.
1. I dont't seem to be digesting my calcium pills well. I've been eating them for about 3 months. The reason why I feel that my body is not absorbing it well is because my pee is especially yellow and smells like medicine hours after I take the pill. Anyone experienced this too?
2. I taking longer than usual to digest my meals. I take longer to feel hungry and after meals I remain bloated for a long time. Is this normal??
i heard from my friend that braxton hicks feels like contraction, like labour pain, but is fake labour pain... if yours is not like that, then is not braxton hicks.
I do realised that Calcium pills give me constipation..... and My Urine also quite yellowish in 2nd trimester....
As for meals, i realised that after meals, i will feel very FULL and my tummy will Stretch as if going to burst.....
By the way, Mummies,
do you all feel Stretching pain at the tummy area? Like bruised kind of feeling, like the tummy is stretching very hard... i can't even stand very straight with this kind of pain.... my friend say could be round ligament pain which is normal.....
And i am now in my 19 weeks, I sometimes feel baby move one day, and the next day, he totally doesn't want to move.... Is this Normal?
same for me, urine is yellow most of the times despite I have managed to sip down more plain water than 1st trimester.
As for bloatness and constipation, I have already been feeling them since first trimester. At least once a month, I will feel my tummy is overstretched and going to burst. Itchy as well. I believe the tummy is growing making more space for the growing baby. That's why stretch mark cream/oil is a must for us now.
But I am unsure if all these are because of the calcium pills we are taking.
Oh yes, baby kicks happen like almost every day. Maybe it's not kicks but baby is stretching? I dont't know, hubby feel it too and it's like one of the mose magical touch in the world.
I dont know from week 16 baby is active. And now it's crazy active.EVERYDAY. So i cant answer but some mummies please help Faithmummy out.
I dont't eat calcium pills. It's no good for the heart as mentioned here and also in my lectures.

Yahoo news Calcium Supplements May Be Bad for Your Heart: Study
Once yahoo singapore also bring out this news so something to take note of and after that I took my calcium via diet and not pills. Since i'm no bestfriend with milk, i take soyabean and cheese for calcium. Just my 2 cents worth.
thanks... i am very touched by your reply.... wow it is really nice that your baby is kicking you everyday
that is such a wonderful feeling.
for Braxton hicks, i never heard of it being not painful, only heard that it is mild....
i do had some cramps in 15 weeks, but my friend said it is normal....
my friend also told me braxton hicks is normal because it is just fake labour pain preparing us for the actual labour
thanks for sharing, I didn't know calcium pills will cause heart issues in woman... No wonder i have been feeling faster than normal heart beat lately... !! btw my friend's gynae recommended her to drink Nutrisoy.... very high in calcium for preggy ladies
Yeap I drank Nutrisoy the one with 500mg calcium. It's good for our bones not the baby so much because we need the Ca intake more or we will have hip pains...I actually uptake my soybean consumption and my hip has been pretty good now. So weird. But on and off not everyday pain.
Ya I was on Ca pill until the Yahoo news.It hardens our heart arteries unless you take it with another element,I am not too sure what is it.This 2 will work simultaneously.Ca harden and this element will soften. Ca suppose to harden the bones but it seems it will harden anything in our body.
But I was reading online that there's some contradicting views in soya milk. ESP if we expecting boys.. dont't drink too much coz got female estrogen inside if I rem correctly :/ so sad.. I love soya milk but I m having boy .. Hmm n I have been drinking too!
Hey mummies, as your tummies get bigger n more stretched.. Do you feel very itchy? Like around tummy area? Below the bra line and above panty line? Mines pretty bad. I scratch until bleeding.. Not sure if its coz I m FTM or its normal
Ive been itching and scratching till it bleed since trimester 1. I stopped using all the stretch mark creams I had and the itch actually got much better! But what am I to do about preventing stretch marks now??!!Originally Posted by Sunbeams:786467
