Injection at poly
Hi mummies! My baby is due for 5-in-1 injection on 7 April at poly. Previously i went for the first injection in February with my mum, the nurse told us that only one caregiver is allowed to come in but i realised that there are many other people coming in together with another person. Super annoyed as i had a very hard time dealing with a cranky baby alone. So this time i want to check if my husband is allowed to come with me for my baby’s injection?
Hey mummy! Normally there is no such rules for the polyclinic.. however in view of current virus situation, they are only allowing 1 accompanying person... my baby also has an appointment on 8th April.. headache......Read more
My husband went in with my baby, I was not able to carry her due to my cesarean wound.however halfway through my little one was hungry and I had to nurse her. So I told the temperature checkers at the entrance that I had to go in because my baby was screaming for me (otherwise, they want to nurse my baby for me?). End up They let me in..Read more
I think it is unfair if others can bring in their baby with someone and you can't. But due to the Covid situation, just yourself pls. Right now we have to practice social distancing everywhere.
I went in march at AMK with my hubby. They rejected him. Only 1 visitor is allowed. I gotta carry baby & the big bag by myself & need to take health booklet & ticket.. lucky my baby not cranky
Every visit my hubby go in together
I think depends on the nurse maybe. I shall try again this coming appointment. Thank you!
So far, they allowed my husb in as well. Prob different polyclinic or different nurse.
At my polyclinic, they didn’t restrict the number of people in the waiting area, but usually one caregiver goes into the consult room. Can your mum wait at the waiting area so that once the injection is done, she can help you with baby?Read more
Ah i see okay i try to bring my husband along. Thank you!
- Hi..my lo went for injection(6 in 1) yesterday in the polyclinic. Today when i woke up i realise it is slightly swollen.is this normal?Anonymous
- Dear mummies I am in this awkward position with my in laws who just move in to our house. Not that there is any fight or argument but i guess because we are still new to staying together under one roof with each other. So times where im in the living room with baby. My in laws will be in their room. When im in my room, my in laws will be in living room with baby. How do you guys manage such that there is a set of time a day for in laws to interact with baby. And other times i can solely take care and interact with baby and have his undivuded attention. How do you guys bring this across to your in laws? The situation is really tricky and awkward. Unlike if PIL live separately from us it would be easier as time they spend here visiting us or us visiting them will be solely time for them to interact with baby. But when staying under the same roof, this whole thing become very blurred and unclear. I definitely need my own time with baby given that i only have 4 months of ML and is coming to an end soon. Thereafter the time i have with my baby would just be a mere 3 hrs a day before baby goes to sleep and on weekend. Hence the time now is really precious to me. Yet when im solely taking care of my baby it feels as if like im depriving my inlaws the time they can soend with their grandchild. But they are gonna have whole lots of time interacting with the grandchild once im back to work. Anyone with similar situation mind sharing how you handle this?
Firstly you have to see how your in law feel. Whether they are OK with what you do. My in law from outside look OK but inside not OK so I have alot of issue after that and I had to quit my job and move out. Its really tricky handle very carefully.Anonymous
- hi all, i really need advise here. went for my scan which doc at kkh counted as 6weeks 3days but turn out my scan only shows yolk size with a waterbag but there is yet to have heartbeat of my baby. i am so worried as doc ask me to come back for another scan in 2weeks time. Doc says my baby may be small or my ovalution is too early. what does that mean?
I understand how anxious you felt. Their calculation of week in pregnancy is based on first day of last menses, with assumption that ovulation occurs 2 weeks after first day of menses. However, it doesn't apply to all cases. Some women would have ovulation later than 'the expected 2 weeks'. (i think the dr meant the baby is either too small to be seen or u ovulated later* and hence conceived later than expected) I went for my first scan at week 6 day 4. Only a water bag (not even yolk sac) was shown on both abdomen and transvaginal scan. Dr couldn't rule out the possibility that it could be a non viable pregnancy. Then i had some spotting with pain and went ED at week 7 day 1. Results still the same - nothing is seen except an empty water bag. Another episode of ED visit at week 7 day 3 with intensified pain and spotting at this visit, and the yolk sac finally showed up (but no sign of baby or heartbeat still). Since the multiple visits got me too anxious and worried, the dr recommended to repeat scan in 2 weeks time to allow more time for the baby to grow and finally i saw the baby (aka the magical bean) on the scan with heartbeat at week 8 day 5. However, the baby size is correlated to only week 6 day 4. So indeed i conceived later than expected! I hope my experience could help you through this long waiting period of 2 weeks. Do stay hopeful :)Yoshi Mikaelson
