Due to Rain unable to go for Walking for past2 days
Here is my update. I have a bit of a worry about baby position. She mentioned that he is posterior which means he needs to turn in order to push the cervix and that pushing will help soften the cervix and eventually open it.
Water content and placenta are ok. Baby weight seems to be 3kg. She didn't exactly check that..said she would do that in next scan.
Also told me that we will wait for 15 days and see what the status is...but in between if I feel pains then wait for couple of hours and see if pain subsides and then go to hospital. If water breaks, or if pain continues or if movements are low...i can visit hospital.
For getting baby into position i need to do N number of squats...make passage for him to enter the pelvis. His head is not yet fixed. Cervix is super closed...so she would wait until 39th week. I have my next check up on 21st May now.
Gals, I am so worried...if baby not in position and it would take time for him to be in position then cervix to soften...he would grow even bigger...which will make normal delivery even more difficult. I feel chances of Normal are reducing as day passes...I was expecting him to be in right position at least now.
Anyways, I am sure God has plans.
Doc asked me to walk 15 min then rest for 10 min and again walk for 15min. Don't walk 30 min continuously and exert myself which will aggrevate labor and baby not being in favorable position might affect chances of normal delivery.
She also said that climbing stairs must be 10-15 steps not more..and it won't help me get baby in position. I just need to squat and walk.....
I am in what the group
I know how it feels for the wait to next doc apt. You are almost there. I guess you will deliver on 39 weeks plus 2 to 3 days.
That’s a nice treat that you made….
I would say just relax and enjoy each day after baby is out, you will be super busy so all of us lets enjoy this time with DH.
Ruvi, try not to over exert yourself by walking and doing activities. Take rest when you feel like. Our bodies will prepare themselves for the baby arrival, if all is ok..then its working perfect..And God has plans for us. So just relax, so that you don’t have false alarms, if you feel tired..take rest and then start walking when you feel good. My doc said walking for longer can cause back pain too.
Hey thanks for the link. I would try all these from Sunday onwards.
Magee you know here its too humid to walk outside, if I walk even 5min in this climate I would faint, so I am walking indoors and its equally good. Just keep walking even if it is indoors, you don’t need to go out for that.
Hello Ladies, sorry for disappearing longtime. Just now settling down with my son. Totally occupied and no time for anything else.
Will come back with my birth story later.
Regarding walking n exercise,
I walked close to 1 hr daily. Even if there was pressure I did that with out fail. Did squats last few days 15-20 times. Did kegels, heels, lunges etc. That's all. Do continue walking if not for any other exercise. Head will be pushed down and cervix dilation will be easier then. All the best and take care.
Thank you all for your warm wishes.
What I did when I was unable to go out was to do the same walking inside the house. I used to walk from hall to room and back. I did that for 1 hr as well.
I missed this birth club.....just noticed it now....I want to share something with all of you....I gave birth to a baby boy on 3rd of May by C-section. This is my second kid ...My first one is a daughter who was also born by C-section.
All the best to all expecting mothers......
Hey can you tell me how much did you LO weighed at birth. I guess you delivered at 39 weeks and 3days right?
Hey congrats on your baby boy..Seems all are delivering boys in the month of May
Hey ladies. Apologies for going Mia for a few days. Been quite crazy adjusting to the new responsibilities. My son is doing well slowly adjusting to the external environment etc. his sleep routine is very tough to predict and so have been having many a sleepless night.
man must be tough for the few of you still pending delivery. Hang in there..know it's tough to be playing the waiting game but your little one is almost baked to perfection inside and gonna make a grand entrance shortly ...focus on the end goal and all will be well.
Dont nut worry too much about the baby weight or procedure. Talking from experirnce. As long as you have a healthy and normal child, these other factors are very manageable. Best wishes to you for a smooth delivery around the corner ))
also keep me posted on the Whatsapp group ))
I was thinking about it last night...once we have delivered we can discuss about our baby's sleeping and feeding patterns...you can discuss that now as well...I might be able to help you if in case any questions...
Hello @Angel1719 - Please do not be tensed...just check with your doc and see if you can perform any yoga exercises -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbAQzuw0kS8...I found one channel called homeveda parenting and there are lot videos available on parenting - might be useful...
also u never know till end how the delivery will happen...so just 2 more weeks for us and then we will hv our own experience to share
@magee - pains and contractions are normal now also i feel my pain threshold is more so i am able to bear all such pains with ease....just waiting for regular pains and bit relaxed as most of the things are done from home front...bags are packed plus i m keeping all my stuff in one corner in case i need something then my hubby can easily get for me...
