I understand culture but people are not neighbours anymore the world has expanded and people live very far away.
For me culture is nice and add a dash here and there but it doesn't rule or dictate my life. Plus cultures morphe and change with the times. Customs adapt. We need to be the generation to change this and make cuatoms to fit our lifestyles.


My mom can come but I also have to consider that I have 2 orphan nephews she is staying with and she can't just up and go and leave them alone,she has to make arrangements for them with someone and my grandma can't help since she is recovering from stroke. As for the rituals,they can be done at my house,it has to be at my hometown because it's not something we can do ourselves. Husband could come to my parent's house but my concern is what if the baby comes early. Also my main thing is I have to make the decision because I have to get hospital authorization from my medical aid and prebook a bed at private hospital.I think our doctor will advice us better in terms of traveling in our next appointment.

@Sweetness,I'm glad you have found a solution to this,it's quite tough.

@Mixedcouple, although some traditional things I don't really understand,I found it's easier to just do it get it over with and move on with life

I am 31W2days todays. I do get pressure especially when I stand for quite some time otherwise it's a number of Braxton Hicks in a day. Had a little pain starting from the back today and that shook me up a bit but it passed with change of position. Every now and then I feel like baby went down my vagina like he is practicing to find his way out๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

Try resting as much as you can and ensure to always have water around and stay hydrated. Almost there mommy almost there

From my tummy till my feet๐Ÿ’” and I started to pee a lot like more than before! And the baby kicks are not active like before but more painful! I even felt her hiccups 2 days ago ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’”

She is definitely getting bigger faster than you can stretch,you won't feel much movements. Be happy if your knees are still able to keep you up because WOW,we are heavy.

On the other hand,how does hiccups feels like? I doubt I've felt his ever or I just don't know how they feel like

I feel you Toofa.. I have been having these weird pains in my back, thighs, pubic bone.. I will be having my next ultrasound on June 3.. waiting for it..

This baby girl at times move so weirdly.. that I feel she is turning my organs with her.. lol

I do not feel Braxton hicks .. atleast I think I donโ€™t.. I do get cramps but no stomach hardening feeling.. the only time my stomach feels a bit tight when baby moves oddly.. ๐Ÿคจ

Oh i do feel so heavy!! And canโ€™t breath if I walk more than 2 minutes ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ’”
Donโ€™t know how to describe how the hiccups feels like ๐Ÿ˜… but itโ€™s like when you hold on a baby with hiccup in your lap maybe! ๐Ÿ˜… but for me I noticed that itโ€™s hiccups immediately when I felt it!! ๐Ÿ˜‚ because I felt with all my tummy was having hiccup with her!

My appointment will be Thursday! Next week the 27th of May.

I have so much ligament pain and leg pain, butt pain, and my vag pain. Thereโ€™s so much pressure. His moves are definitely interesting. Iโ€™ve had sickness problems the whole pregnancy so I know when to take one of my pills and then my day is better. My appt for May 21 was cancelled and next one is June 2021

This are the fun times really. Yesterday felt like his movements where weak but at night he started his kick boxing,he was on it through our the day but there are also those gentle onces that feels like a hand massage๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ. I also have pressures,my knees hurts when I stand up otherwise I'm so looking forward to finish packing my hospital bags. I still haven't decided about the birth yet.

On a side note: I finally got my new identification after changing to my husband's last name
