My mother in law wanted Hubby and I to book the baby shower venue on the 21 Sept but I told her baby might come out earlier. Think she will say something sarcastic if my baby comes out after 20 Aug.
I know this is extremely silly and petty but my hubby's previous relationship's anniversary is on the 20+ Aug... I am so scared that baby will born on the same day.
I know baby's health should be my priority (which is why I still can't convince myself to induce) but I just cannot help but feel stressed and worried
It just feels extremely weird to celebrate dear daughter's bday on the same day, until today I still feel like a substitute (Hubby and I got back together shortly after they broke off).
Maybe mother in law means well (at least thats how Hubby defended) but it's stressful when she keeps 'caring' and pressuring everything. Last time she got extremely upset because we didn't consult her before we decided on a date for wedding photoshoot. We were in a rush and the photographer's schedule was packed but she insisted that we change to another date cos the one we got was inauspicious (red color page on those old school calendar).
Felt so bad to call up the studio just the day before or so (that was when mother in law was told) to change the date. I could tell that the photographer had the "mommy's boy" impression on hubby.
dont't feel that way. That's the past already. So your mother in law is those very superstitious type? Huh, got upset becos of that? Aiyo luckily my mother in law not like this, if not i will feel super stressed and pressured. Wedding photo-shoot only mah? If she say about the timing the bride must leave the house this and that, at least still can understand but what have the calendar thing got to do with Photo-shoot? The photo taken won't be nice? or what? It's really weird.
I understand that's the past but I just cannot shake off that weird feelings
Thinking of eating more pineapples to see if it helps to naturally induce labour. Gynae said that if I have not't given birth by my EDD, she will induce me. Really hope that baby will be good and come out before my 39 weeks appointment >.<"
Is it safe?
There is no evidence to say whether it is safe or not. Each pineapple contains only very small amounts of bromelain so you would need to eat as many as seven to have any effect. The most likely side-effect of eating large amounts of pineapple would be a severe case of the runs.
Does it work?
Some cultures swear by it but there is a lack of research into whether it really works. Regardless of this, eating large quantities of pineapple is likely to stimulate the gut and bowel and, as with castor oil, could kick-start the uterus into action by that means.
How do I try it?
The pineapple must be fresh: bromelain is destroyed by the process of canning or juicing.
i really really know how you feel. my EDD is 17Oct but i am so worried my girl will come out earlier. i hope my girl comes out later cos i dont wanna her to be a libra. i know i will be reminded of how he cheated everytime i celebrate my girl's bday. worse thing is i cant confide in him regarding this cos he will think i am looking for trouble again. they just dont understand ya? i dont think i'm being silly. i try to put my girl's health as priority but its just that the actualy birth date is also a concern for me.
but if you induced on the 20th aug, your baby is already 38 or 39 weeks right?
but like what you say, scare might end up emergency c-sect. This one reali cannot guarantee. Consult your gynae about it.
Decide to wait and see, hopefully baby will wanna pop out within the next few days... I am looking forward to contraction ~.~"
