Wow your eldest at 39 weeks only 2.5kg and that's very light. My boy was born around 39 weeks too and he is 3.4kg so I think yr 2nd baby shld be of a good weight by
Now so no worries.
I guess only yr gynae can give you the best option then..
Meanwhile, just relax, your almost there Look forward to your 2nd bundle joy!
After reading your post, i realised that i am not alone.... I have been feeling so much pain that i cannot lie sleep and walk. Pain when i lie down regardless of what position. Pain when i walk, its not pain at e tummy but at e pelvic and inner thighs area. This is so torturing!!! Sob sob........
Am gg to see gynae tomorrow. I dont know if i can even walk up to his clinic.... i will ask him how to solve this. I dont feel like inducing, feel like skipping this part and go straight to c-section. My baby was 3.2kg last week..... think he is a good size already... EDD 29 nov but i really cannot wait anymore...
Anyway if you can natural you shld go for it. I cant natural due to baby's cord one round loosely on his neck thats y to avoid any mishap, i opt for c-sect immediately. I was hoping to natural too. C-sect recovery very slow...and it's quite painful after the op. Perhaps cos my threshold of pain quite low.
Anyhow I think your gynae will know what is best for you. Seek his/her opinion. People tell me if you think pregnancy is very tiring and torturing...when baby is born and if you got no confinement lady to help you the first month, it's even more TORTURING. Im doing confinement and taking care of my baby (almost alone, mum around but she forgot most things about taking care of babies) and I been depress and I think I got the post-natal depression. I cry most of the time during my confinement, which is bad...
so...enjoy your sleep IF you can...though that time i tell all my friends I rather baby out then in my tummy...but i regretted saying that....
Anyhow, good luck...and keep us posted! Jia you!
get some professional help if necessary! or air out whatever grievances over here ^^
Stay strong pretty mommy
Thanks for sharing your experience. Will try for natural.... But e pain is so bad now that everything I stand up n try to walk, tears naturally formed in my eyes....
Hope you r coping better as you get more used to having yr darling baby w you.
Touch water? Lol I basically eat 'confinement' for 1st 2 weeks only. I started bathing in herbs 6th day and then for the one week I use herbs to bath alternate days n now, I bath everyday with just water from heater n wash hair once 2 days. Lol I bath baby everyday cos already touch water until dunoe what already. I always wear sleeveless n shorts since I come back from hospital. Lol
I cry for the first two weeks until my mum offer to help me take care baby night. Can you imagine I 'scold' her almost everyday for her 'old fashion' thinking...till date I still 'scold' her...then baby caught with fever 2nd day he is discharge from hospital n almost need to hospitalise again. lucky no stay cos the 3d2n stay can cost up to $1.5k cash cos of the lot stupid test! His fever subside next day. Then he was caught with flu. Keep sneezing. Then 2 wks back, he develop lots of rashes on his face n it's getting worst yesterday. After pediatrician's prescription, he is better already. Imagine he is only 24 days old...these also adds to our depression.
Jia you 2! I'm still learning!
Seems like a lot has happened after your baby's birth, if I were you I dont't know how to cope with the demands especially when baby is sick, you are very strong to overcome this! Hoped baby Ashton recover soon yeah, dont't let mummy worry !!
Besides baby falling sick is a concern, whether to put him at my in law's place where i go short holiday i also very worried...die ...
I also want to go for short holiday but like tan gu gu to me ... Are you worried that your in laws can't handle Ashton?
My in law should be ok ...but their house abit small, and dunoe where to put bed all these...and to be frank taking care of baby at both house means everything also double...milk powder, washing powder, clothes (maybe), milk bottles, etc...double expenses. Somemore normal days i only bring him there on Sat noon and Sun noon i bring him back already. If i going for 3d2n trip, on Friday, Sat and Sun but my mother in law work every Mon - Fri...so how? ya alot of things ...
If you dont't mind you can just buy a baby mattress for baby to sleep on floor if the house is too small. Best if your in law house has extra bed (I mean the adult normal bed), then save up and let him sleep on it instead... I think milk powder and washing powder can buy double, can buy extra spare clothes and hankies at their side too... Milk bottles dont't need bah as every Sunday you can take the chance to take home and sterilize it... Your mother in law can take leave on Friday?
I will be admitting tonight gg to be induced by prostin at 9pm. Its getting more painful to walk (due to e pelvic pain) and i got small contractions this morning. Also, my baby has not grown much since last week, so gynae suggested might as well since i m also into my 39 weeks already.
tomorrow morning will be having epi and gynae to break my water bag at 9am, then its e pushing session!!! Fingers crossed!!! Wish me luck!
Jia you EP20!! Looking forward to Yr updates!!
