I went to my 3rd review to the gynae's at 28 February. As usual, my weight will be record, and AGAIN I lose weight, last review was 57.3kg, this round it was 56.9kg, gynae was very curious on what happened. So I just told her my appetite still not that good yet as on normal days, I would still have to think of what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. She was shaking her head and tell me must gain more weight. I wanted too (though not that much), but each pregnancy I just dont eat well in the beginning.
So anyway, I asked for a scan again that day, just feeling to see the lil one inside. So gynae move the scanning tool around my tummy, there I saw the lil one, he/she was sleeping at first, but probably she feel the tool outside momma's tummy, he/she suddenly moved and turn, there the lil one is awake. haha. That moment is like magic, I just feel excited. Then gynae measure the LO's head, he/she is right at 17 weeks, so that makes me relief as I'm so worry the LO is not growing well. Then gynae try to check the LO's current weight, LO was just merely at 193g! Hee..
This round, I asked gynae to print the scanning picture for me to keep since I did not have wawa's when he is still inside my tummy. Then gynae took some blood to check my hemoglobin and also others like HIV etc. And medicine? This time gynae gave me some multi vitamin, hope to have my weight increase as I've not eating well.
I just went for my 4th review yesterday, will update soon *finger crossed*
During these early weeks, not much symptoms can be detect, the only that's very obvious and makes me suspected I'm pregnant is that my breast size suddenly increase, LOL!! I was on a diet before and managed to lose about 6kg, and that time my breast has reduced it size, haha, so when suddenly my breast size increase, I suspected that I'm pregnant, but wasnt sure since I thought I might have my menses soon too.
After confirm that I'm expecting, the symptoms are more obvious. My breast, especially nipples get very very tender, it hurts each time I change my clothes, at times when wawa play with me and he accidently hit me, the pain can almost make me cry!!
Then my appetite is well, so so. I dint really eat much, I dont really crave for anything, only few times that I crave for mee tom yam, most other time, I eat anything but very little, and because the bloated feeling, I sometimes feel full even without eating.
This time, I found out pretty early which at my 5 or 6 weeks. When I missed my menses for a month, I suspected something, but wasn't too sure though. At one fine evening after work, I went to a supermarket that is near my office to do some grocery shopping. While paying at the counter, in front was a pharmacy, then when I look at the pharmacy, suddenly a strong feel and urge pushing me and was like calling me to get a pregnancy test, and so I did.
After home, I took the test when I bath. At first after dripped some urine in the test kit, I see nothing but only a single line. So I felt a tiny bit of disappointment, but I carry on with my bath. Then because of curious and feeling of "unsatisfied", I take a look on the test kit again. This time, I blink my eyes few times just to make sure I'm not making a mistake, I saw 2 lines instead!! I was very very very blank at that moment when I look at the test kit, only few seconds later, I felt my heart blooming! LOL!!! I almost jump in the bathroom, but I dint la, but my heart is sure feel like jumping up and down for joy. I really couldn't believe it. So I kept the test kit back inside the box and kept inside a drawer. And nope, I did not tell hubby about it when I found out. Instead, I decides to went to clinic on my own this time.
That night, I couldn't kept my the news to myself only and I finally burst it out to dh. At first I dint tell the whole thing, but I give some hint, then when I thought I better keep it myself, but too late cause he already guessed it right. We're at KFC that time since wawa wanted to eat that, he laughed out quite loud and I was blush! He even told me it's obvious I'm hiding something cause my face is red like tomato *CIS*. So there, I told him about it. But I warned him not to tell my MIL as I dint want to pressure myself since he told my MIL last time right after we went for 1st review to gynae then happened of the miscarriage.
So anyhow, after almost a month of waiting, I went to Likas Hospital on 24th Jan for my follow up on the miscarriage, I told the doctor I'm expecting again. And it's around 12 weeks that time. And he told me according my previous review, I still have cyst and fibroid at my uterus and if the cyst and fibroid stays during my pregnancy, I would have the possibility to have another miscarriage, or if the baby is growing healthy, I will have the risk that the baby's position will be another way round as the size of cyst and fibroid could increase by the pregnancy. When I heard that, my whole heart dropped. I really couldn't stand to go through another miscarriage anymore and at the same time, I want my baby to be healthy.
So doctor told me to do scanning at the next door. When I lie down, my heart pumped real fast and I couldn't wait to know if I'm having a healthy pregnancy this time. The doctor move around the ultrasound tool at my tummy to check the cyst and fibroid, he did not tell me if it's still there, but later he turn the screen to me, I saw my baby there!!! He/She was moving happily, I can see the baby sort like kicking, and so the doctor says the same too! I was so so so grateful that time, I almost cried but I keep it cause I was too shy to cry, lol!! Then the doctor call another senior doctor to scan me again, and finally he told me all cyst and fibroid is GONE, none is left in my uterus! Boy I am so so so thankful for that, Alhamdulilah!!!
Our baby.. =D (sorry blurry pix, using my hp)
And that same week, on my birthday (28 Jan), I went for my review at gynae's with dh this time. Before that the nurse help to weight me, and oops, I lose weight again instead of gaining. I guess quite normal as I experienced the same with wawa and the previous pregnancy. Then I told gynae that I've done scanning on the hospital early Monday and the baby is there (smiling inside my heart), BUT I wanted to do another scanning as I wanted to have the scanning picture. Before that, she check on the pregnancy chart and I'm suppose on my 13 weeks + 1 day. Then we went for ultrasound scan, yes, again I saw my baby is there, and he/she is moving happily. =D And to make sure the baby is growing accordingly, gynae measure the baby's head, and the screen shows the baby size is now at 12 weeks 6 days. So that's mean my baby is growing healthily! But because I'm losing weight instead of gaining, gynae told me must eat more to gain weight. But I guess no big deal right is I did not gain too much, cause with wawa, I only gain less than 7kg anyway. Hehe.
And according to the pregnancy chart, my due is at 4th August 2011. That's 6 months away only! Now I remembered I bought tickets to KL for holiday with dh, wawa and mom at 4th - 9th August too! What a coincidence, cause that means my holiday will have to say bye bye, too bad cause I bought the air fare real cheap and thought of bringing wawa to Genting since he is now 4 and can enjoy most things. But anyhow, I'm really really grateful and thankful for having a normal pregnancy this time. Now I couldn't wait to feel the all the excitement of preparing everything for a bundle of joy again after Wawa, and the most is to find out the gender, hehe. And yea, we will have a "baby rabbit"! Hope to update more on this pregnancy soon. ^_^
I dint purposely (well, kinda) take off that day, but coincidence I had an appointment to the clinic that WEEK, so I choose it on my birthday so I can have a day off on my birthday and wake up late, lol!! Hubby took 2 days off too for me so we can spend time together. While my cutie pie, I still send him to day care that day since I need to go clinic. Trip to the clinic relieves all my worries, and am going to post about the details in next post.
So on my birthday, I woke up in the morning and get 2 kisses from my man and little man, and when the little man says Happy Bithday Mommy, it just melt me right at the heart. That's the blessing when you're a mother. =)
At night, my mom called some of her friends and my aunt to celebrate my birthday, haha yea not my friends but my mom's, but of course all her friends I knew as well. We went for dinner at a Chinese Muslim restaurant at Karamunsing - Puteri Hang Li Po, we ordered 7 dishes since there are 8 of us include the little man. The food was not bad, we ordered Kangkung Belacan, Kailan with garlic, Kerabu fish with mango slice (the one I love most), black pepper chicken, butter prawn, onion beef, and fried squid. All cost about Rm230.
After the dinner, my mom went to jalan2 with my aunt and her friends, so me and my 2 mans went to Secret Recipe instead to have a cake. LOL! I ordered a slice of sugar free moist chocolate cake and request a small candle from the waitress, then hubby light up the candle and wawa sang for me. Haha. He sang the Happy Birthday song in 3 languages! English, Mandarin and Malay. Boy am I proud! I only managed to record the video he sang in English version as my memory was full! *Bluek*
