Besides today is Monday BLUES, I also have pre-natal blues. I got so many things in my head and I dunoe how to release my stress over them. Perhaps anyone who is very free can give me some advice or suggestions. Thanks in advance...
1) Weight Gain - Sigh, I started being slightly overweight and now (at 20th Week) I gained almost 12 kgs already. I read that my max should be only 13kgs. I asked my doc for nutritious plan but he just told me dont't need to eat for two will do. Sigh. I wish to maintain or not gain so much. Actually if best, lose abit of weight. Doc say if I didn't eat enough, baby can get the nutritients from me. Is it true? I also dunwan to walk around like humpty dumpty. I already got problem walking up 3 flights of stairs and gets out of breathe easily!
Relax Girl! I also put on alot weight from 14weeks + till now im 22 weeks. Beginning my tummy very small my mum got so worried keep asking why tummy so small this and that. then now my stomach is obvious already. + im those small and skinny type. its even more obvious the bump. Put on weight is good thing. I get hungry super easily. Morning breakfast eat less than 1hr+ i get hungry again. But my sis told me not to eat too much rice, so i only take rice for lunch/dinner. either one or when im really hungry then both meals. In between whenever i feel hungry, i eat mantous, biscuits, make nestum to drink or eat oats. Dont too stress. I walk up 2 flights of stairs when i go home already tired and panting. dont't think of dieting, maybe you can eat more fruits in between meals like what i do. Helps constipation also. I can go to the toilet daily to remove my bowels. (:
2) Delivery cost - Sigh, Sigh, I am not earning alot and of cos due to my debts, I am unable to save up too. So I been reading lots of forum on the estimate delivery cost and it seems like I pay at least $2k in cash after medisave claims. And I just read from CPF website that medisave must have a minimum of S$15k before the remaining can be used to deduct delivery cost...is it true? If not enough means got to top up cash? OMG...if I am unlucky and i need to go for emergency c-section after opting for normal with epi delivery how? Wah...so stressful. And I read that no hospital does installments. So, for those who are not so well-to-do how? ((
I'm not well to do too, plus this is unplanned pregnancy, I'm not working and hubby taking home pay is just nice for both of us. We also can't save at all basically every month is just nice go pass, I heard from my friend she at KK give birth never even pay a cent, You must go ask the counter people earlier abit to use medisave deduct, something like this. I'm not too sure. But i will check it out this end month when i go for check up then i let you know again k? dont't stress!
3) Tummy size - I know this is uncontrollable but my tummy is so big at 5th month as compared to others. Though everyone's tummy size is different. I felt that my tummy is very high and very 'firm'. I sense that if it grows further, which it will, my tummy will have horrible stretch marks. I am applying stretch mark cream now so probably not an issue, but i also experienced numbness on the top on my tummy, just below my breasts. It's quite painful not as if I will shout over it. HELP! I been experiencing numbness constantly...sigh sigh.
My baby girl keep kicking me at the lower part. Esp at night or when i'm hungry and waiting for dinner, she kick even harder, My tummy also quite big, and i worry stretch marks too, but im applying cream too, remember, if your tummy itch, try not to scratch it. Mayb just rub it lightly. Numbness you must let your gayne know the next time you go for check up. I'm just having backaches daily and i cant really sleep at night. If not sleep 2-3hrs then wake up . Afternoon then take nap again.
4) Ante-natal class @ Kandang Kerbau Hospital - Just checking only, I am starting my class tomorrow. If anyone is also in the class? My hubby is going reservist for 2 weeks in July and I will be alone for 2 classes. Trying to make friends here prior to the class...
Thanks for tuning in...I need a place to relieve my stress...
Too bad im didnt take up any classes. But i can be your friend here!
