No more swimming for me

i asked darling when is he bringing me n baby Jayden inside me for a swim again.. his ans is very firm n stern.. "NO".. he is not bringing us for a swim till after i give birth already.. haiz sianz .. his reason is that he noes that water bag will burst when we r into labour, n wat if so happen that my water bag burst when i am in the pool, there's no way we would have realised that the water bag has burst coz we have been told that we have to b admitted to hospital as soon as water bag is burst.. darling is worried abt this n so in order not to stress him further, i shall listen to him n stop going swimming for the time being till Jayden is born then i can go swimming again..

10th June 2008 - 2nd Antenatal Class

Date: 10th June 2008 (Tuesday)

Had our 2nd Antenatal Class today. Class today is mainly on practical. We are show some slides on the different stages of labour and the instructress explained all stages clearly to us..

Labour is divided into 3 stages:

The first stage begins with the onset of contractions that cause progressive changes in your cervix and ends when your cervix is fully dilated.
This stage is divided into two phases: early (or latent) and active labor.During early labor, your cervix gradually effaces (thins out) and dilates (opens). That's followed by active labor, when your cervix begins to dilate more rapidly and contractions are longer, stronger, and closer together. People often refer to the last part of active labor as transition.

The second stage of labor begins once you're fully dilated and ends with the birth of your baby. This is sometimes referred to as the pushing stage.

The third and final stage begins right after the birth of your baby and ends with the separation and subsequent delivery of the placenta.

she also teaches us the 4 types of breathing techniques to adopt if we are not using epidural. According to her, these techniques aim is to diversify our mind to concentrate on the breathing rather than the contraction pain. Darling also gets to b involved as he will b beside me during labour and most of the time, we tend to forget all these techniques when in pain n so our spouse duty is to remind us and give us encouragement.. she also told us that some preggies during labour esp during the stage when its time to push n baby head is at crowning stage, some will actually get very emotional.. some will cry and say they wan go home n don wan to give birth while some will start shouting n scolding the nurses, the doc n even the poor daddy.. hehe.. but she says most of the time after baby is delivered and if u ask her wat she scold juz now, most likely she won rem what she had said earlier on.. hehe.. darling says he feel i will be those type that will shout n scold him.. so i told him.. gd ah.. a very good time to really scold him hard.. haha..

lastly, she also teaches us how to push during labour, for this she don wan us to practise at home, think she scare if we push too much , scarly we go into early delivery.. all along i thought pushing is like shitting but infact the pushing feel sld b like u r having a urge to urine.. hehe.. hehe.. darling says he feels i def cant push 1.. hehe.. so look down on me.. haha...

9th June 2008 - Swimming Time

Date: 9th June 2008 (Monday)

Darling's off day today.. we went swimming in the evening.. Due to school holiday now, the pool is quite crowded and the water is so cooling esp in the hot weather now.. Jayden is so excited when we r in the pool, keep feeling his kicks, think he is swimming happily inside too.. hehe.. we swam for about 30mins and shower and left.. was telling Darling, we shall bring Jayden here for a swim when he's older too coz there's a playing pool there for kids and i believe Jayden is going to have a great time there next time..

next we head to holland v for dinner, had a simple dinner at the hawker centre there and darling brought us to Hagaan Dazz for Desserts.. so yummy.. hehe

1st Antenatal Classes

Date: 3rd June 2008 (tuesday)

we signed up for Gleneagles Antenatal Classes last month and today is the 1st day of the class.. the class is on every Tue and there's a total of 4 classes for the whole course.

The 1st part of the 1st lesson was on Nutrition n Diet. Thou most of us already know the importance of certain nutrients to us now but its still good to listen to the professionals sometimes too.. I thought its already too late for me to join these kind of classes since i am going into my 31st week soon but guess i'm wrong coz most of the mums in this classes r in 3rd trimester like me too

2nd part of the the lesson was exercise n posture. The nurse taught us some simple exercises to do now at home for pregnancy and she also give us an idea on the correct posture to sit, slp and stand during pregnancy. She also taught us the Kegel exercises, exercises that you can do to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles — that is, the muscles that support your urethra, bladder, uterus, and rectum

overall, its fun and i will practise those exercises often at home esp kegel exercise
