EDD Jan 2012 Mummies

Excited mummy, yes! can collect AB upon birth! what fun!

karen511, i'm starting my 33 weeks and the last time i weighed on 6 Dec (wk 32), baby weighed around 1.9kg.
it was a great weight gain of about 1.1kg within a period of 1 month.
Wierd, considering I only gained 8kg during my pregancy and am only 56kg now.
The recent blood test shows i have gestational diabetes (sob) so the baby is taking a lot of sugar from me.
i have now stopped my sugar intake e.g. soft drinks, cakes, icecream, choco.. all my favourites!

now, looking forward to the arrival of my baby girl! no sugars now, but i only have to wait for another 2 months.. must tolerate!!
Hi Chjean - My baby was estimated a little heavier than your's also at 32 weeks, but doc did not recommend C section. Why did your doc order C section? Is it more because of the diabetes, or why?

Hi booboo mum, i guess it could be because I had an operation in March this year to remove a fibroid from the womb. Doc said the scar that he removed the fibroid from is thin and may not be able to withstand the pressure of a big baby if i wait for full term. that's why the Csec was recommended.

Just ignore all the bad comments...

We will soon b seeing our little ones already... I might go into early labour.. Hmmm experiencing some contractions.. Any mummies has it as well?
i had 2 early contractions. the first one was during my 7 mths... panic panic cos i had not prepare anything. was admitted to kkh for 2 days then i wanted to go home... it was ok after that... funny....at least i knew how the contractions feels like... now counting weeks.. 37 weeks already. so excited
 
Having loose stools these few days. a contrast from the constipation.
go to toilet 2 or 3 times a day and feel bloatedness in stomach.
very uncomfortable. is this normal at wk 35/36?

Hi Chjean, which hospital do you visit? My friend has this problem too (recovering from surgery) and is planning to get pregnant soon. She doesn't want a c section though as that will be an extra scar, and cause further weakness to her uterus for subsequent pregnancies. Can you ask your doctor to estimate the weight of your baby again, closer to the EDD? Maybe it won't be so big after all....?

Have any of you been taking Raspberry Leaf tablets by Blackmores for the muscles in the uterus? And what about the placenta - are any of you planning to take it home and cook it for eating? I heard of a company that will collect the placenta and turn it into capsules for you to consume - apparently the placenta (consuming it) will help prevent postnatal depression, and help with returning the uterus to normal size, etc.

Consuming the placenta? Personally, I dont dare to do that.

Mrs Wong said during one of her pre-natal classes that the placenta provides nutrients to the foetus and takes away the waste. should not consume it. No medical proof that it is good for the new mothers.

I think from watching animal planet, some mammals do eat the placenta after delivering their young. But mostly bcos these animals need to get the nutrients they require after the giving birth to their young. But for humans, we get good nutrition from food which is easily available.

Hi booboomum, my delivery is at Mt A. my gynae's clinic is above isetan scotts. at first i wanted a natural birth, and he allowed it as I had a moderately good growth, but I turned out to have gestational diabetes, so the baby was growing too fast / too fat for natural so now he thinks a c-sec must be performed. so if your friend chooses natural, and does not grow too fast too soon, natural still can be done. ask her not to eat sweet things or soft drinks (that's what caused my gestational diabetes !! ). anyway, listen to the gynae, won't be wrong! by the way, the opening for csec will be at the same place where the scar to remove the fibroid is, just that it'd be a bit longer/bigger. will be going back to my gynae this saturday for my checkup, will update on my bb's weight and will ask him to estimate the weight on delivery. let you know next week.

as for placenta consumption, i agree with ExcitedMummy cos i also attended Mrs Wong's class - she did say no use consuming the placenta. so i don't intend to consume it..

Hi mummies, anyone knows how do the gynae check if our amniotic fluid is low? Im into my 36 weeks now. Just worried after hearing from some mummies they are told to be induced due to low amniotic fluid.

Any mummies gonna process and consume their placenta? Very keen on going for it although its not proven about the good sides yet. Currently.drinking rapsberry leaf tea. Hopefully it work out well.
