This is a discussion on EDD September 2013 Mummies within the Year 2013 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; i have bad braxton n baby like already drop. sigh.. 30week...
i have bad braxton n baby like already drop.
10 steps like baby push hard against bladder and it's like so uncomfy and have to sit.
I think i'm low lying so i went for traditional massage and the 'auntie' said baby head not engage stil there's spaces. it's just that baby is heavy.
i'm confirm with gynae next week and i'll update.but definitely if you check my tummy out, it's low.
my contractions sometimes feel like menses pain but not the terrible ones.
Perhaps its backache. It can be confusing but i dont't wanna think about it.
Baby stress for nothing!
I just drink lotsa water and watch cartoon to chill myself out.
Hopefully the braxton decreases.
anyway braxton is danger too because if its too frequent, the uterus maybe ready to release the baby out. So doc has to prescribe some medication to stop braxton if its too many in a day. mine at certain hour only like afternoon between a certain timing and at night at a certain timing. but it goes for 2 hours straight.
But I personally feel there is no need to be too particular to use a separate detergent for the baby. Washing the clothes seperately is good enough I feel. Afterall, during my generation, there is no such thing as a baby detergent for baby clothes.

Hey mummies.. I went to gynae check up today n they did a growth scan for me. Am almost week 29.. baby is 1.5kg.
Any mummies know the weight of their baby? First time I know so clear. Coz normally she doesn't tell me. Ha.. I think it's abit big?
But thAnkfully my placenta has shifted upwards. 7cm. Any idea the norm?
However, they detected sugar in my urine high glucose level.. I m quite worried.. Coz they say not healthy for baby. baby might be baby but not healthy.
Has anyone done the test?
I mean baby might be big but not healthy.
When is the glucose test? Is it compulsory? I'm already in my 30 weeks and next visit to gynae is at 32 weeks.
Im kinda worried if I have to take glucose test... I've been craving sweet foods so much I eat chocolates almost everyday 2 weeks ago and I'm 1kg overweight... -_-"'
I will go for growth test and glucose test next week, now 29 weeks... Baby around 1.3kg at 28 weeks..
StellaC: do control your weight. I heard baby maybe born premature if mummy is overweight. I am now in 6-7 mths and all in all I have only gained about 8kg which gynae told it's acceptable consider I weight about 45kg before pregnancy. Baby weighs about 1Kg.
Hi stellaC.. If your gynae Didnt say anything about glucose test then it's good. Normally I think they will ask for it if either your family has history of diabetics or high sugar level type. Which mine Didnt have. Neither does my hubby so I think it could be my diet? Or unknowingly I m "diabetic" dont know lei.
yanting.. 1.3kg sounds good! Heh. Boy or girl? Mine is boy
Hi Sunbeams, mine is a girl
I dont't have diabetics history but since my gynae arranged for that I will just do.. I take sweetened drinks most of the time as can't take plain water..
sigh..did d glucose test n failed.... gynae said I'm gestational diabetes. .was devastated, now got to keep doing diabetic test myself to amke sure all my meals r within safe range....
I m sorry to hear that chweewy
Can I know what's this diabetic test that you need to do on yourself? Like inject?
take blood test? Sorry am clueless.
but to encourage you all.. My colleague friend gained 12kg in 6months n was considered "diabetic"
she watched her carbos intake and it became better n under control. Her baby turn out healthy!
any idea what will happen if we dont't watch? Effect on baby? So stressful.
i m intending to go take the test next Monday! But Sunday night I have a wedding dinner! Hmm might over eat..
maybe not such a good idea after all..
For 1st 2 days, gynae told me to take 7 times needle jab to draw my blood to test on d glucose strip..safe range is 5.5 to 7 on d glucose machine. These 7 times r bef bf, 2 hours after bf, bf lunch, 2hrs after lunch, bef dnr, 2hrs dnr n bef bedtime..after that gynae will advise you what to do next. So now, have to take zero sugar n half carbo inorder to maintain my n lil one health..;(
Gyane said if not, baby could born premature or become super big size like 4kg n above..lungs may be affected n later will become diabetics if mother persists in unhealthy diet....sobs

praying for us mummies here who have this issue, going to check up for this issue :/
take care ok!
Thanks for the replies mummies. I also hope I dont't need the glucose test... Anyway I heard its just fasting and then you drink a glucose drink before testing urine right? But if there's gestational diabetes then have to jab and test blood at home right? That's what I am scared of.. So I drink a lot of water everyday now... Especially if I take chocolates, with the hope they get flushed out.. Of cos I dont't think it works that way sigh.
I forgot what is my baby's weight.. Think around 1kg plus at 28 weeks. My gynae says she is a tall baby because her thigh legs are longer than usual. Hehe.
Im starting to "nest" at home already! Really tired to go to work, so I stay home, wash baby clothes etc...
Hi all!! 2nd time mummy here. My #1 boy just 13mth old. #2 also boy. Edd at 26 sep but think will be early cos low plecenta. dont think it shifted up. Anyway I opt for csection since #1 I suffer 15hr w/o epi, 2hr w/ epi. Still end up csection cos he is too big for me. #2 is above average size during detail scan also. So far I have not't gain aany weight like my 1st preg. Only at 38 week or so gain 2kg. Think this time I wwill loss weight again after delivery!!
Let jia you together!! 2 to 3 more mths more of preggy period!!
I did mine in Thomson Medical Center..so not sure about the rest...it went like this: I fasted for 8 hours previous night. when I reached d lab, she drew a small tube of blood n then got me to drink 250ml glucose drink n asked me to come back exactly 2 hours later. They will draw 2nd tube of blood to test.. I was bruised when thry drew d 2nd time...that's y I dislike needle..sobsob
In Thomson Medical Center, it's blood..not sure about other labs..it was recommended by my gynae cos I'm over 35 n has family history of diabetes..sigh...
N my gynae told me that in my future preg, I still b gg diabetic. .that's y so devastated. ..but for our lil one...I somehow have the courage to prick myself everytime for blood even I'm so afraid of needle...my hub saud this is the power of mummy
