Pregnancy @ Week 21 : 4th Check-up

Hello Readers! So sorry for the late update on my last checkup. Two weeks overdue! I actually have written it earlier but its all always unfinished. But its finally done now for your reading….

Today in history we became the very first patient that stepped into the clinic before anyone else. You know what time? 7:15am ocayy! Haha… Because it’s Friday with too many things to be settled in the first half, so we went out early lah…too early pulak tu. Registration counter was still closed and will only open at 8:00am. Plenty of time! But café and coffee house sume pon x bukak lg. Yg ade pon 7e. So we just bought light breakfast and waited until almost 8 and went up to the O&G area again.

Registration starts at 8:00am but consultation usually starts at 9:00am. So we still gotta wait for another hour. But when we were waiting for the registration and pusing2 around that area taking pictures and main handphone, I saw my doctor’s around. Dr. Noor Aini tu..She’s in already. Awalnyerr…

My Peneman @ Ayah! =)

So after the registration, we went to the doctor’s room, even the assistants pon blom ade lg. Fine lah, we’d wait until 9. But then, because the doc has seen us around a few times, she just called us in and proceed with the check-up. Ahh, baikk doctor! Ultrasound machine pon blom on lg. Urine and weight pon blom amek lg. Usually it’s all done before the consultation because of the long waiting list. But she’s willing to entertain us early. Credit! 🙂

It was just a brief session, and this is how my baby looks like at his 20 weeks 😉 :

 

See the hand is so obvious! Doc asked us to count the fingers. All fives J And then she scanned through all parts making sure there’s no any ‘ketumbuhan’ or anything suspicious. Alhamdulillah, it looks all fine..insyaAllah its fine..Ameen..

The above of my baby that looks like a ‘cloud’ is the placenta (uri). While the black color in the middle is my amniotic fluid a.k.a ‘air ketuban’. My doc said, if the air ketuban banyak, meaning = good. Meaning, ur baby is in a good condition inside and tak sempit.

What makes us smiling even wider this time is that, there was a point, our baby was like facing the screen..so it really looks like he’s looking at us! I can see his eyes, nose, mouth and even ears! Well yea…it’s blurry but we can detect yea we can detect..by instinct :p and with doc’s guidance of course. Because usually we look at him from the side. Now it’s face to face. It’s sooooo sweet! Aww… :’)

Done with the consultation and the next appointment will be one month from now – 10th December 2012. Before we’re off to work, of course I din’t forget my to-do’s that I’ve listed in my previous post.

1) 4D Ultrasound – I read the ads around the clinic area that the 4D Ultrasound will be done by the Radiology department and we got to book for an appointment there at….level one I think. But then, just after the check-up and we’re setting up the next appointment date, the assistant told me that –

“for next checkup, if you want to do normal consultation like this, you may come on Saturday. But, if you want to “ambil gambar baby”, you have to come on weekdays,”

Me : “Ambil gambar baby? You mean the 4D Scan?”

Assistant : “Aaa yes…because that one is not done here (doc’s room). We have to call the ____ (I don’t know what), they will come up and bla bla bla (I don’t catch what she said) and they will take your baby’s picture. But that’s on weekdays only la..and there’s gonna be a separate charges of RM100.”

Hahaha….she calls it “ambil gambar baby” …haha..so funny! So cute! So I reconfirm that we don’t need to go to the radiology department or what and then just set the appointment. Its Monday, 10th December 2012…. OMG I CAN’T WAIT!!! 😀

Done one thing, next is about the Antenatal Class. Okay, this is sad. If I’m not mistaken, no, I AM NOT mistaken that I did see the notice before (since my first visit here) on the Antenatal Class (or they call it Parentcraft Class) here in SunMed – done every month for 3 sessions on the first 3 Saturdays of every month. I didn’t take note but I’m really sure they have it in December and I’ve been planning to attend it in December. But thennnn….now…. I asked them…they said…. “The last session for this year is in November. None will be held in December.”  —- What!! Oh no…  😦

Even for November one, the 1st session has started last week. If I were to slot in, I’ve missed a few topics of the whole course. It’s my first pregnancy…I won’t wanna miss a single thing, no? And worse, the fee is RM300 per couple for all the 3 sessions. But it doesn’t mean it’s RM100 per session. Bcoz if we’re picking only selected session, they will charge us RM150 per session. Meaning, I still got to pay RM300 for only 2 sessions. What a wastee… The personnel suggested me to call the respective department and ask about the openings in 2013. Maybe I can join the January one. But…..hmm…. its kinda late already. There will be topics on pregnancy that my gynae said – the class is to teach you pregnant. So jgn la pergi bile dah nak abis pregnant. See….5-6 months pregnancy is just nice right! See…I’ve well-planned it! Butt….hmm… *upset*.

So I went online and search for classes in other hospitals. I remember Columbia Asia did open Antenatal class and promote it on facebook before…and…I found this! :

It’s on 15th December 2012! Okay, just nice…and I think I got no choice. So I called them right away and booked for two seats. Done!

Well….klu ikutkan hati. I must wanna join the class in SunMed itself. Because I’m planning to deliver my baby there. But what to do..there’s no way for us and also, actually, the class they arrange is quite not-practical and yet, pricey! Here’s the comparison. For one Antenatal course in SunMed, they are arranging 3 classes, done in three weekends in a row. That equals to 12 hours! But in Columbia Asia, with the topics covered are fairly the same, everything is compressed into 3 hours only. What makes it so lengthy in SunMed? Or kat Columbia Asia nie ala2 kadar aje? Hmm… don’t mind lah. I would prefer to attend a more detailed class on this but, that 3 weekends requirement is not that practical. Not practical for the daddy laa especially! So, let’s just take it for one-shot for all. Save time, and save money as well because the fee for Columbia is only RM50! Save RM250 there…plenty! So I’ll definitely update about the class later. Stay tuned! 😉

Oh yea, one more to-do’s! Maternity/delivery package in SunMed – here’s what I got. They just gave an estimation range like this :

For Normal Delivery, 4k – 6k. For Caesarean, 7k – 9k. That would include the room charges and all lah.. Plus/minus. Quite expensive right… *jgn lah kene operate..huhu*. They provided to me the leaflet on the room charges. I’ll post it here soon.

That’s all my updates on my 4th check-up session.

Mom! =)

Update : *My lil’ one inside is 23 weeks old!*

Next Check-up : To-do’s

Tomorrow is the day for my next check-up appointment. As always, it gets us excited all week! What’s awaiting? The most anticipating part has passed last week – to know the gender of our baby. Though it was quite apparent thru the ultrasound but we might want to reconfirm, right? Double check gitu.. 😉 But fyi, we have started buying boyish baby’s stuffs ocayy! Hehe..

So other than that, will just see what’s the doc has planned for..passing halfway through the pregnancy they might need to run any test or give a new set of medicines.. as for myself, all in my mind is just about seeing my baby inside..his movement, his measurement…and all I’m hoping is to listen only that everything is well. Ameen…

~Looking forward~

In the last checkup, I prepared a list of questions to ask doc. This time, nothing I guess. My pregnancy in the last four weeks since my last check up was quite fine.. even the headache that’s been hitting me all time last month has faded away… Alhamdulillah. So maybe it’s only the 4th month symptom. So now I fit in the pregnancy hormone already..cehh.

And also, no more confusion about the kicking. I can feel that clearly already!! I’m so excited every time my tiny resident is like so busy with his activity inside. Been wondering is it the legs kicking? The hands punching? Or he’s having hiccups? Alolo anak mom! Hopefully he’s having fun in there.. and keeps growing! 😉

Nothing to-ask, but I have a few things to-do. Let cheklist them! :

  •  Antenatal Class Registration – It becomes a must for new parents to attend this class right. So far all my friends said it’s very useful. So I must not miss the chance and am planning to attend it next month in December – my 6th month of pregnancy. I’ll get the details of the class and share it here.
  • Book for 4D Ultrasound – another exciting agenda! My friend advised us to go have the 4D ultrasound session at around 6 months of pregnancy. At that time, the baby’s features are complete and the baby’s size is just nice. After 7 months, the baby has almost fully accommodated the uterus that makes it difficult to scan through him. So next month is the time. Hopefully the schedule suits us!
  • Request for Maternity/Delivery Package  – We’ve been planning to deliver our baby at the hospital but we don’t even know whether we can afford the bills or not – boley tak?? Haha… I’m gonna ask for the delivery package – if they have it in particular or in range, and also maybe the room charges or anything…  It’s a private hospital so fees are definitely significant. My company is reimbursing a portion of the costs (can I say a small portion? :p – Alhamdulillah!!), but we still need to prepare ourselves and our pocket! Huhu…

I guess that’s all. It’s only a half day time-off  and gotta go back to work in the PM. So hopefully I can check everything done! Till then, till the next update. Bye!

Update : *My Lil’ Baby inside is 20 weeks old!*

Pregnancy @ Week 17 : 3rd Check Up (Part 2 – Q&A Session)

  • Issue 1 – Kad Merah Klinik Kerajaan.

Bile pregnant je org akan tanye “Dah buat kad merah?” Or buku merah or kad pink or whatever you call it. I’m engaging a routine checkup at a private hospital and I don’t keep any of my pregnancy record with me. I saw the clinic maintains my details in one file but what’s given to me are only the appointment card, and also the ultrasound printscreen. That’s all. So some said you must have that. Some said not necessarily kad merah but at least any record for reference for any other hospitals in case of emergency (terberanak kat tempat lain plak) you got to be admitted not at your current hospital. Some said if the hospital don’t have specific book, ask a copy of the doctor’s record every time coming for checkups (memandaiiii aje!)

So that was the conflict so I asked doc. Answer – here in SunMed, they don’t give the details to patients. If you wanna go to other private hospitals, just go, no problem. But if you wanna go to GH for delivery, they won’t allow you if you’re without their kad merah. So if you plan to deliver at GH, you must buat your kad merah. If you wanna deliver at other private, kad merah is not necessary. If you don’t have kad merah and you got to be referred to GH, private will provide referral letter. Haaa…. Like that. If if if….

  • Issue 2 – Long distance travelling right after discharged

I lived in Sunway,PJ and am planning to be in confinement at my Mama’s house in JB. If I deliver my baby here in SunMed, would it be ok for me to travel in car for 3 to 4 hours all the way to JB right after discharged? Would it be dangerous? Would it be any bleeding or whatever?

Doc said – ”It’s ok, no problem, yes you can. Many ppl did that anyway. There are even ppl who travel by plane, straight to airport right after discharged. – That is if you have a natural birth (normal).”

But if you go thru caesarean, you have to come back for follow-ups after 10 days. So cannot balik kampong rightaway. Clarified.

  • Issue 3 – Serious dizziness

One of the symptoms in my 4th month of pregnancy is serious dizziness. No more nausea like in the first trimester but I feel dizzy like ALL THE TIME for the past two weeks can you imagine? Ok, not all the time but most of the time, seriously. L And being pregnant I know we can’t simply take any pills/pain killers. Sakit pon, tahan je lah.. so I asked doc and she said it’s all common. Until you reach certain phase of pregnancy it will fade. So now just bear with it, get rest or if you can’t stand it, you can take panadol. Panadol ONLY. The doctor is quite strict on the medication and she again stressed that I can’t simply take any pills/pain killers. Those drugs may defect your baby. Aaaaa takut! It’s ok lah doctor. I would rather just tahan this sakit pening kepala than taking any pills that can be risky. Huhu…

From what I read, as the pregnancy goes on, so does the tummy. The speedy expansion of the tummy (and body weight as well) might affect the way we balance our body because we are adapting with the new centre of gravity of our body. Yeah, that makes sense. Because my tummy has started gaining attention..those who don’t know I’m pregnant can already tell that I am. Other than that, it’s also because of heart that pumps more blood, the blood pressure and so on…so your organs are adjusting with the roller coasters inside. Still, it’s most unlikely that we will be all black-out and fall. Mine’s not until that bad. So just relax….and sabarrr….

  • Issue 4 – Other pregnancy supplements

Because we’re talking about pills restriction and so on, I came to ask her on other pregnancy products (there’s a bunch in the markets and online!). Again, she doesn’t allow her patients to take any other supplements than what she prescribed. Whatever that the hospital gives you is actually enough. Even some of those non-hospital products, got banned! So, clarified. So, xyah lah nak beli2 mcm2 product tambahan kat pasaran tu. We might not know the little possible side effects unless we do thorough research before taking it. I’m not that gigih. But for those whose taking any other supplements, of course it’s all up to individual, yeah? Later in the next post I’ll share with you the only Vitamins I’m taking for my pregnancy.

  • Issue 5 – Weight

What I knew about target of weight gaining during pregnancy is about 0.5kg a week = 2kg a month (+/-). After the fasting month and entering the second trimester, I gained better appetite and started to see my weight increment. Today, I gained 3kg+ from the previous month. Hee…! Doc said she doesn’t observe my weight..she just monitors the weight of my baby. Because I have a small physical so weight shouldn’t be an issue. Only that I have to jump over 50kg within this pregnancy. Ohhh I see….insyaAllah I can reach that in these few months. J

  • Issue 6 – The First Kicks?

Huhu…..this is what playing in my mind lately. When is baby gonna start kicking?? Penat tggu penat concentrate. I saw your legs already but tak kick mom pon? I even asked my hubby to listen at my tummy. Xde pon?? Huhu…

Me, ”Doc, when’s the baby start kicking?”

Doc, “There, its been kicing already. So active.”

Me, “What? But I never feel anything?”

Doc, “It’s not about when the baby starts kicking. It’s when YOU FEEL the kicks.”

Ohhhh……really…. I see…. Aaa…..this is tricky! I think sometimes I feel something inside but is that a kick? How is it actually? Aaaaa I don’t know! Conflict..conflict… hehehe…. It’s okay, take ur time baby. Or I’m the one who should take my time? Because this is my very first pregnancy. So I really don’t know how’s it like.. It’s okay…this is my journey! J According to doc, the latest I should be feeling the kicking is at 24 weeks. So it’s about 7 weeks from now insyaAllah I’ll feel it. Come on baby! Your dad is a good striker so come on, show your talent! :p Kesian baby he must be struggling inside! 😀

Not me. Just gambar hiasan. =p

Yeahh…. That is all the Q&A session in my third pregnancy checkup just for sharing. If you wanna add up anything you know about my confusion, pls do, thank you! 🙂

Pregnancy @ Week 17 : 3rd Check Up (Part 1)

Hello everyone! I just came back from my check-up appointment today. It has been all exciting! Hehe.. x sabar nk cite.

13th Oct 2012 – It’s Saturday. The 1st time check-up that I did on Saturday. My God punye lah ramai org dtg appointment hari Sabtu. Queue for registration pon selang berbelas2 org. Slalu nyer 3-4 org je. But not bad lah..registration je. This time, I came in the morning just for registration because my husband also got another appointment. So I just picked my turn, weighed my body and took my urine. Coming at 8:30am, my turn was number 7! Yg turn number 1 tu dtg pkl 6:30am hagak nyer. :p

But that didn’t matter lah. I left for another errand and came again at 11:40am, waited for 5 minutes and they called me in. Better right??? Save waiting time, save waiting energy, save baby’s energy. :p

Masuk2 je x sempat ddk lg doc ckp “Saleha, your blood is all good, no problem, everything is OK.” Alhamdulillah…! It’s the blood test I did on my previous checkup. As usual, checked blood pressure, ok, and then naik katil! 😀

Bismillah…Start scanning…

Doc, “Wahh…cantik tali pusat die.” Haa…that’s the 1st words. Hehe…tali pusat pon cantik. J Makin lame, makin besar baby ku! Last time, the head was on the left of the screen and the legs belah kanan. But this time, kepala belah kanan, kaki belah kiri. Wahh berpusing2 die kat dalam yer! (Mom’s theory :p) So the doctor measured my baby. Measured the legs, the head’s diameter and also the stomach’s diameter. The measurement is to know the baby’s current size is as its current week. Should be more or less, the same.

Even since the 1st checkup, my baby’s measurement is alwaysss more than the current week. Extra by 3 days like that la.. Whoahh… big baby! Mom makan byk sgt ker?? Hehe…x kesah la kan..xkan lah nk btol2 exact plak! Apelah mom nie..detail! :p But it’s kinda worrying if the baby’s size is too big and it can’t go thru my cervix then I gotta be c-zer! Aaa…takut.. Hopefully not. So far the doctor doesn’t highlight anything yet so keep calm.

My baby….taraaaaaaaaa….! 😀

My Baby ~ 16 weeks 3days 🙂

See, this time, the baby’s head is no more oversized than the body. It’s progressing well. Alhamdulillah..

And then the doctor moved the cursor to……the genital! Aaaaaa!! Yes, at week 14 the baby’s sex organ is already developed and we can see it now. Tapiiii….the doctor x ckp pape ponn….

Mother-to-be’s, do you wanna know your baby’s sex within pregnancy or would you wanna keep it surprised? My answer is definitely, NOW! I wanna know it now! Hahaha…overexcited! And nervous at the same time..huh! Ppl surrounding are neverendingly guessing by looking at my bump, my appearance…which everything is superstitious. Honestly I don’t mind the gender. 🙂

Oh, fyi, even since the day 1 I got to know I’m pregnant, I already have that instinct of my baby’s gender! Seriously! Hehehe…But its not just a blind instinct. I have knowledge and feelings that support my instinct. So it’s guessing game againnn….to know the baby’s gender and to asses my motherly instinct whether its working well or not! Hahha…

And then doctor scanned the other parts and we’ve been questioning….and then…I asked, “So you can see already… it’s Boy? Girl?” (Nak tanye pon takut2! :p)

Doc, “Yea, u want me to tell ya?”

Me, “Aaa…yes..”

Doctor moved back the cursor to its private part“It’s a …. _______”

Tadaaaaa…!!!

.

…..

…….

……….

Eddy Junior or Salz Junior? :p

Hahahaha……can you see???? Captured from the bottom part with the legs up. And the cursor!! Hahha….So, Gegurl?? Bebird?? Ahhh..okay dah! Teka sendiri!! Write ur answer in the comment box 😀

Alhamdulillahhh….. We are so happy and pleased to know that. Can start shopping now!! :p

Done with ultrasound session. Remember the previous checkups I didn’t know what to ask? Ha, this time, I have prepared a list of questionsss! This one month gap left me with full of doubt about this and that. Jadi, bertanyalah pada yg pakar.

But I don’t wanna keep this post any longer. To be continued in Part 2. Ecehhhh :p Thanks for reading!

Update : My Lil Baby inside is 16 weeks old!

p/s : 13th October 2009 was the day my husband and I began to be “in a relationship” status. How remarkable it is when these 3 years have turned us from two become three…Alhamdulillah. Happy Anniversary.

All the excitement…Too Cute! =)

Pregnancy @ Week 12 : 2nd Check Up

My second pregnancy check-up happened on Thursday, 13th of September 2012. Two-week gap from my previous 1st checkup. This time, we came a bit early in the morning and among the first patients. But then, we were informed that the doctor was currently at the labor room and they (the assistants) can’t estimate the time she would finish. So… waiting affair again..

Well, no complaint. My time is coming soon and we don’t know what we are up to. And all that we wish for is the priority towards us at the very critical moment. So now, let other Mommies have theirs.

Mrs. Salz @ 12 weeks pregnant. Slimmm lagi :p

When my turn was up, we went in and the doctor was in her surgery-suit.  Aaa…takut..mcm nak bedah kite jek! This time, the doctor asked me about my medical history..whether I have any illness, been operated before?, been warded? And also my mother’s health condition whether she’s diabetic or not and so on and so forth. So I answered lah… question by question so fast so I don’t know what I answered. Hahah..

And then, peek-a-boo time!! Hehe..I got on the bed and the doctor started scanning. Hey biggie you!! Haha.. At 12 weeks, my baby was estimated at only 5-6 cm long but the fullscreen ultrasound makes it look like a real baby already! We could see the hands and legs now. It’s moving! The doctor really can see what he/she’s doing. She told us that the baby’s hand was at the head, and then he/she moved it down, raised up its legs and all…Quite active! Hehe..

This time, doctor scanned the baby longer. Belek sane, belek sini…took all the measurements. And Alhamdulillah, our baby is in a good condition. Lastly, doc said that there’s no more movement, the baby puts the hands on the lap. “It’s time to rest! Dah2, baby nak rest dah xnak gerak..” Hehe..

Prior to coming for the checkup, I actually spoke to my baby. Telling him/her that we’re gonna have a date tomorrow so pls don’t sleep, Mom & Dad wanna see you moving. Hehe.. maybe he/she did hear what I was saying. So that’s what I’m gonna be doing again everytime we have checkups. :p In the previous 1st checkup,  we saw our baby was like kicking up a storm in there. Melentik2 badan dia… and that moment remain in our mind especially when we talked about the checkup. Sooo momentlicious! I can’t imagine the time when I feel its first kick! Can’t waittt….. 😀

Oh yea, as usual, during checkups your doctor will ask you…any questions? Hmm, somehow, since the 1st checkup, I don’t know what to ask. I read a lot about early pregnancy stage even before I got pregnant. So all the explanation about week calculation, trimester, EDD…dah tauuu…. Cehhh…. =P or maybe I don’t what I don’t know? I also don’t know. Haha..Nak tanye psl delivery kang mcm awal sgt pulak…kan!

Tapi, mcm takkan la taknak tanye pape.. so I just asked..is everything OK? Is the baby OK? The doctor said OK, everything is OK and normal. Hmm…the doctor is not quite elaborative kinda person so that don’t trigger me to ask for more. Huhu..

And then my husband mentioned about susu. Oh yeah, then I asked, “Doc, so far I haven’t taken any milk for pregnancy like Anmum or Mamil…I’m just having HL. Is that OK? Any recommendation?” To my surprise, she said, “Yes, it’s OK. No problem. You don’t need to take any more milk for pregnancy. All the supplements you’re taking now are enough. You can proceed with just HL no problem.” Aaaakk? Confused for a while. Isn’t that common when ppl mentioned about pregnancy, ppl talked about milk. It has been lumrah! And now the doctor is saying differently. Well, I’m somehow happy to know that, because I don’t like milk or even milky drinks. I can only swallow HL. But then again, if I don’t take milk, will my baby lack of calcium? Are the pills really enough? Tapiii….klu dah doctor pakar yg ckp camtu I pon ok je lahhh… so, I decided to not force myself to drink what I dislike. Thank God! Hee…but this doesn’t tell you to stop. If you M2Bs do take milk, it’s of course better! Superstitiously org kate nnt anak jadi putih! Sile lahh….hehe…

Oh, forgot to tell that I did blood test while waiting for my turn. If there’s any problem, the clinic will call me in the afternoon. If no calls then means my blood is OK. And Alhamdulillah, no call!

Now let me show you my baby at 12 weekssss…..!!

My Baby @ 12 weeks 1 day 🙂

My next checkup will be on 13th October 2012. That will be in week 17 already. What’s awaiting? Hopefully everything is still and always in the finest condition….ye anak mom!! Mmmmuah!!

Pregnancy @ Week 10 : 1st Check-up

I typed this entry right after I returned from the hospital. But then I forgot where did I save this file. Then I just found it now I’m gonna post it up. Read it as it is but now actually I’m already in my 15th week. Enjoy ~

Yeay, today is the day of my 1st official checkup of my pregnancy! I made an appointment at Sunway Medical Centre on 29th Aug 2012 with the O&G, Dr. Noor Aini. Oh, I’m writing a topic on “Hospital Selection”  – about how and why did I decide to choose SunMed for check-ups and delivery. Under cons. Will post it soon.

Appointment in the morning, 1st come 1st serve. Azam semangat nk dtg plg awal amek number. Tp dah hospital pon dekat ngn umah, lengah2 la…tp semangat! Hehe.. Nervous pon ade.. Takut dgr yg xbest2…huhu.

Jadi, smpi2 je kat sane kol 9:15am. Registration, isi borang, then tggu…then tggu…then tggu…hmm… I’ve expected this.  Klu nk jmp specialist kenelah sggp menunggu. Dtg awal pon kene tggu lame. N masalahnye skang kteorg smpi pon x awal! Hehe.. Tp kalau pegi KK – Klinik Kesihatan tu pon kene tggu lame jgk kan..bape ramai org pregnant. Ye x? Oh, tp yg tak best nyer, turn die tggu name dipanggil. Xde amek2 queue number. So its like susah la nk bajet2 lg bape org sblm kite kan….Sementare tggu tu die amek berat n tggi kte..

Sempat pegi breakfast kejap kat café die. Dekat je btol2 depan the clinic. And food pon not bad. Cozy jek tempat nyer… pictures ~

The compact cafe. That’s my Abg!

Nice breakfast! Sedapp…

Future Dad & Mom…insyaAllah 🙂

Finally, dah pkl 11:45am br lah name ku dipanggil. 2 n a half hours jgk laa tggu. Hah! And before die pggl tu die tanye,

“Puan ade simpan air kencing x? Ade rase nk buang air x?”

Mase die tanye tu kite baruuuu jek kuar toilet.  “Alaa….saye baru jek buang.”

“Ohh…klu boleh pegi minum air dlu lah yer..sbb klu nak scan nie better keep ‘full blader’”

Haihh….actually, Kak Uni (my sister) dh pernah bgtau pony g klu nk gi scan kene full blader. Ingat, tp tah time tu…dah rase nk kenc and kte nie mmg jenis x suke tahan kenc lg2 time nk ade ape2 like consultation mcm nie. Nnt xleh concentrate dgr  doctor ckp 😀

Dah tu, pegi la minum air kejap n dh mmg being preggy nie, all the time pon rase nk terkenc jek..so lepas dah minum air tu bgtau die, n die pggl masuk…

Sessi dgn doctor mula2, seriousss jek. Huhuhu…so, mcm biase die tanye lah tarikh2 penting, bile last period, last day ke 1st day, ble start tau pregnant, and ble check-up confirmation. Better keep the dates in ur mind so boleh jwb dgn tangkas!

Pastu doc kate ok, now saye nak scan to confirm whether u r really pregnant. Err…dah la kite mmg takut ngn false positive lg doc ckp camtu. Because this is our 1st checkup ngn die of course la die treat camtu btol x.

Kte pon naik bed die n die start scan….heee….ini adelah saat yg plg2 bunge2 for us! =p Last time kan check mase 6 weeks just nmpk sebijik bulat je. This time dah nmpk bentuk2! Hehe.. So doc tu pon start bercerita, die tunjuk ini bladder, ini yolk sac kantung mknnn tu, itu air ketuban, bla..bla…yg kte nie dah dok tertanye mane baby nyerrrr… doc dh explain yg lain2 tu br lah die ckp…and this is your baby. Aaaakk….buat suspen aje! Ini kepala die, ini badan die, jantung, ini kaki, tangan….nie hidung. Aaakk…hidung pon dah nmpk! Hehehe… Nmpk baby tu gerak2..jantung die kot. Then doc pasang heartbeat die. Alhamdulillah…ade heartbeat dah!! J

Nie dier gmbr ultrasound baby at 10 weeks :

My Babyyyyyy !!! :)))

Syukur lah…sume nyer normal. Ape yg ptt ade, ade. Based on calculation, my pregnancy is now 10 weeks and based on ultrasound measurement pon, baby is around 10 weeks plus. Alhamdulillah!

Next checkup will be on the 13th of September 2012. Supposedly checkup should be once in 4 weeks but the doc needs to call me earlier because she can’t pass week 13. In between week 11 to week 13, doc kene buat 1 scan to detect any abnormalities. After week 13,  baby normal or x normal akn nmpk same je. Dgr the word mcm takut plak…huhu..doa byk2 so that baby is normal and sehat and comel! 😉 Ameen….

And then dah…ubat plak, doc tanye ade amek ape skrg? I said Folic Acid and Neurogain. Doc kate aaa…nape amek nuerogain skrg? Its good for baby’s brain but early pregnancy baby x absorb pon. Should take it starting week 14. Aaak? Emm…membazir jek. Huhu… Semangat sgt mama nie nk baby jd pandai siang2 dah amek Neurogain! Haih..So ill stop taking that for a while and die bagi multivitamin primalet for mommy! Utk tmbh zat besi katenyer…

Kuar bilik tu, set appointment n doc kate pegi buat blood test. Tapi kiteorg lupe…terus byr and balik. Haha… sbb time tu dah excited sgt belek2 ultrasound tu!! Haiyaa… xpelah, will do it next checkup 2 minggu jek lg..

Sekian alkisah 1st checkup ku…panjang plak cite nyer..rase perlu summary sket point2 yg penting! :

1)      1st come 1st serve, sile dtg awal!

2)      Klu nak gi tu xyah breakfast dlu. Queue dlu baru then barulah cabut gi makan sementare dok tggu tu.

3)      Nak buat scan, do keep ur blader full with urine! Biar senang doc nak scan.

4)      Do remember ur important dates –  first day of last period especially.

5)      One scan must be done in between week 11 to week 13 to detect abnormalities.

6)      Neurogain hanye perlu start in the 2nd trimester and above.

Mom waiting to date her Baby! ;p
