  • Bos @bosa, are you for real? @I still get mad i wasted $1k on epidural oh, next time i shall use the full value of that money…. :haha:   :haha:   :haha:   :haha:   Okay oh, they you are in for one luxurious ride :plane:   :plane:   Yes Bos, my husband buried the placentas, he only told me later where, but I couldn’t even be bothered to go check for it.…[Read more]

  • @Pearl…aha are there no Kardashian fans present in this gathering of the Lords saints????? :-)   :-)   :-) …..Kim and Kourtney ate the placenta after birth ! that’s where I heard of this first…all I knew before was African magic style..take your child’s placenta and burry it before one hospital nurse steals his destiny…I don’t even know w…[Read more]

    @ldike you are a strong girl….i can relate to this. I expected the pains to be much more but i wasn’t ready to wait for them to get stronger…

    @oluwakemine so i guess it was your husband who buried the placentas?

    @pearl that’s the summary….healthy baby and mama. I second your husband’s opinion because of COPD. In my short labour, i was…[Read more]

    Thanks @ldike, my plan was to leave it open as well but with @oluwakemine and @bosa suggestions I am so indecisive as we speak. :cold:

    DH already zeroed his mind to CS from day 1 but the issue now is the more I progress in weeks the more chances for trying out vaginal birth first before CS if v-birth doesn’t go as planned.

    **Blushing** @Oluwakemine: After all the phases one has been through…All I want is Baby and Mother must be healthy and fine with no complications because God forbid if something happens they will never ever take responsibilities. :yes:

    I am thinking about the pain meds and will raise it up next appointment. I will also be following @Bosa[Read more]

  • Bos replied to the topic LIFE AS I KNOW IT. in the forum Group logo of PCOS GirlsPCOS Girls 20 hours, 22 minutes ago

    @pearl I didn’t want to say natural birth oh because some people take that quite personal oh, they say CS is natural. It is an achievable fantasy, but as we know sometimes, it doesn’t go as planned sometimes. I thought your hubby had convinced you to go the CS route also, let me summarise my interesting story.

    Woke around 6am to pee, got back in…[Read more]

    31 weeks! I am so happy for you @pearl :yahoo: praying for you and the  rest of the journey.

    On pain meds, I guess we all have different tolerance levels. We had planned a vaginal birth and when I wasn’t dilating, they induced me. I had also  planned minimal pain relief and the nurses kept asking me if they should bring pain medication. I r…[Read more]

  • Thank God you are keeping a really open mind where this birth plan is concerned. Think about that pain medications again :yes: Pearl.

    @pearl, that diabolical mindset is why most clinics I know, including government owned ones give the placenta to the parents, they can now do whatever they want with it.

    But I hear that some government clinics…[Read more]

    I can say that I am currently walking in your shoes before you had a baby @Bosa. Its for natural birth.

    Honestly, I am not thinking of how much the pain is nor have I made up my mind what pain relievers to have as @oluwakemine asked.

    What I said to them was, when that time comes I will know and also they should know that the birth plan is good…[Read more]

    I enjoyed the update @pearl, your day was definitely quite eventful. On the pain meds, is this for CS or vaginal birth? If i am to plan pain meds based on my previous experience, I would scream load up the epidural baby :yahoo: I didn’t want total numbness so they started with a low dose, so i could still feel the contractions. DS had a mind of…[Read more]
