A piece of advice: If you deliver already but they have not't push you to ward (Thomson Medical Center always have no room situation so may delay pushing you to ward), n you see it's close to lunch or dinner time, make sure you tell the nurse to reserve confinement food (or western/malay/normal Chinese food if you prefer) in the menu for you so you get the food when you go to your ward.
Otherwise may end up like me, waited 2 hours in delivery ward cos no room n by the time go ward, most dinners are served and left with choices that no one wants
I delivered at 5pm n was wheeled only to the ward at 7pm. All dinner served already at 6pm so I was only left with normal Chinese menu...honestly that first meal was lousy. Subsequent meals on confinement food taste much much better....best was the papaya fish soup...slurpP lunch is served around 12 noon
just got back from gynae... i likely need to induce at 37-38wks cos the rate baby is grow is too fast and he shld be big by then and if i dont induce it will be C sect but i dont want to waste time inducing :P
but gynae point of view is induce better healing is faster than C sect

but like i said i not keen to induce cos when i asked gynae she tell me assuming check in at 9am induce by next day the baby should be out... it's NEXT day !!!! and there is no guarantee the cervix will dilate ...then might still need C sect after all the pain... ...even though gynae said so far her patients all will dilate but... everyone is diff one mah ...anyway will see how...at next visit...
My hubby not tall so i guess baby wont be very big or long by then...sigh...anyway now i just wish for baby to keep moving until that day...dont make me worry too much...and one more...dont come out later than EDD! :P
Went gynae appt just now!!
So happy baby's head engaged n he is healthy! Heartbeat n hearing test checked. Since it's 38 week, baby is safe for delivery anytime...so now really waiting for 'things to happen'. I guess I will leave baby's fate to his hands ...so I will wait. Felt so touched when I see his heartbeat on my tummy...no heart to induce him out. hope he will take care of himself in my tummy until delivery...
