Sian... your edd is 11th, mine 12th and chelle is 13th.. maybe we will deliver together!!!

I tink mine not yet also.. As I/m tyoing tis, got on off contractions, sumtime even painful. Lets see what Dr Ang says on Mon bout me. If not dilate yet, I sure feel disappointed..
Make a pregnancy ticker
I am very impatient person, then now with the swine flu going on, alot of restrictions.
Have to take temperature when entering Thomson Medical Center, and i read from the flyers on the wall that visiting hours are being restricted too!
Btw, how many bedded are you all gg to choose?
patients have auto-upgraded to 2 bedded.
No, i am still working, dont tink i will take ML early coz at home nothing to do. Somemore nowadays weather very hot, rather go office and wrk n enjoy aircon.
My hubby is also worried if i stay at home alone when i gg to deliver, at least at office have my collegues around.
Ya, my next appt on Sat morn too!
i also hope will dilate by then, i read somewhere that quite accurate in estimating delivery date! i tink he will give MC if he feel that the delivery will be within next few days, so we can stay home and play the waiting game...haa
Very exciting! Haa, let hope we all can have a smooth and natural delivery. seems very anti-epidural, i hope i can do w/o it too!
I think I will likely go for epidural... will try w/o first to exp the pain then really cannot endure i will take epidural. Do we have to let know that we want epidural in advance?? Because I heard from my friend if want epidural need to pre-arrange for the person to come in to give you epidural one. Any idea on this??? I dont't want in the end when I want epidural then the person to administer it is not around. Then die .....
[quote=MizfitMumma;146660]Helo to all Mommies... 1st quest is, how does it feels like for labour pain or contractions?? I'm in my 37weeks & have been having a tightening feeling on my tummy. Sometimes it go for quite a period of time but sometimes it cums for about 15 minutes & go away... Is day labour contractions?? quote]
Hi there, based on the info that my gynae told me last time. before 37wks and you experience some kind of contractions, that is known as preterm labour. As such you need to consult your gynae fast as it can result to premature delivery.
Otherwise, the contractions known as Braxton Hicks. Do google/yahoo search to learn more about Braxton Hicks and how to make yourself comfortable when you have such contractions. For me the only way i comforted myself when i had Braxton hicks was to toss and turn gently until the pain subsided.
Alright, dont't worry too much. hope you have a smooth deliver.
You may be deceived if you trust too much,but you will live in tormentif you dont't trust enough.(So trust your instincts for it will never lie)
My aunt told me to take DEEP BREATH during labour and not to tense up coz will make the pain even worse.
I think i will take epidural too if i cannot stand it, i dont't want to torture myself.
But if is too late into labour, eg dilate too much, then i think cannot use epidural.
I also rather scared thinking of it, but i do want to try natural delivery so my hubby can be with me!
You must update us on mon ya???[/qu
Hi Mummies, I'm back from Dr Ang. I'm 2cm dilated & he wants me to be admitted. I insisted oon last min shopping. He called me again I told me to go straight to Thomson Medical Center for admission as earlier when I did my CTG, there were cramps & contractions so he said should be able to deliver. I need to go to Thomson Medical Center for admission at 6pm & will hopefully deliver by tomorrow.
Yes, I do agree that it rather painful when he (LAng)put his finger to check. I even told him off : to give me a break during labour last week, when he put is a few times to check. That time I was on gas and already moaning away, waiting.
As for bill at Thomson Medical Center for last week :
I told nurse to use my medisave for me, and daddy's medisave for baby during admission. So as to split the burden.
For 2 night stay, with natural birth, assisted delivery (vacumn), I top up another $300 plus by credit card. L Ang also roughly confirm the range when he declared me ok to discharge.
Daddy swipe his card for $800 deposit first during admission,hence the balance $400 plus will be refund to his credit card in 3 weeks time.
How come all your bills at Thomson Medical Center seem so cheap?
my friend was just discharged on thu, her bill was $800 deposit plus $600 additional upon discharge. natural assisted (forceps) with epi. her gynae is adrian woodsworth.
hers was 4 bedder, free upgrade to 2 bedder.
means total she paid $1400 in cash, include baby's bill.
Cheyenne, how come urs so cheap? still got $400+ refund? or is it you mistaken? the cash part is $800 deposit plus $300 cash so total is $1100? cos i rmb my gynae mentioned before, difference btw epi n no epi is just few hundred dollars onli.
Empty vessels make the most noise
Wow you can still go shopping........ you have a smooth delivery ya!!!![/quote]
Helloooo lovely Mummies, A.lin, Momomummy & the rest... I'm back from Thomson Medical Center. Have delivered my baby after hours & hours of labour. Remember I told you ladies that on Mon got to admit to Thomson Medical Center?? Yup, got myself admitted & pain was sooo intensed. Damn painful the contractions. Not lyk braxton hicks, you now. Dat one ar still can breathe, this real contraction arghhhhh sooooo painful!!! Cant even talk. Maybe its my first time so very painful. Guess when I deliver my baby? Tuesday 8.45 at night. Imagine the agony that I went through.. Opt for normal delivery but my cervix refuse to dilate more that 4cm. After hours of pain, have to do emergency c-sect. Got discharged yesterday but baby got jaundice so have to stay there.
[quote=a.lin;155417][quote=MizfitMumma;155341] Yup bill was high. Its due to my extra stay at the hospital & they put me in d labour room early as they thought I would dilate quickly byt nahh!! $200plus for the stay at labour room. its from 1pm plus to 8.30pm. My cervix refuse to co-operate & had to be c-sect in d end. I felt very disappointed s I cant deliver naturally at 1st but I guess that's d best that's need to b done at dat tym. Dr Ang was kind enuf to guide me throught what to expect with my bills. After the $800 deposit, need to top up $500plus for both me & my son. Nurses there are very friendly & helpful. After c-sect, its quite painful to walk but I'm managing well. How cum your baby heart drop??? Is everthing alrite now? All da best to your pregnancy & delivery. Thanx for all your advices during my pregnancy... Do update me when you have delivered ok..
