I have so many things in pending to tell but lately I’m quite busy with domestic stuffs! I’ll tell about this in next entry perhaps.
But now without further ado let’s just start with the previous check up on last Friday, July 10th, 2009. The check up was scheduled at 9.00 am and the appointment was with the gynea. But surprisingly we didn’t have to wait long on that day and settled with everything about only an hour after that. Only that we still took some time at the administration counter after we were done with the check up in order to settle on stuff regarding insurance claim on my delivery charge next month. This year the procedure has changed a bit compared to last year.
Anyway, all I can say everything went on almost as usual during the check up. During the consultation, we were attended by a senior midwife and a trainee midwife. This time, the senior midwife was the one who we were not really familiar with. So earlier when the consultation started, upon looking at my record she asked was it me who gave birth to a stillborn last year and she continued with I got pregnant again fast. Ahaha… I didn’t really know whether I should laugh or what ohoho but I don’t know why I felt a bit annoyed. Might be it was just my feeling but she didn’t mean anything by that actually. Did I ever tell that I’m quite famous there in the maternity department? 😛 Okay, whatever. It’s good anyway, since I got to get extra attention by them most of the times 😉 While as for the trainee midwife, she was the one doing the check up on me supervised by the senior midwife. Then we helped her with her training by giving her full cooperation when she asked and advised us about so many things regarding pregnancy. She asked me how do I play with the baby in the womb, how is my feeling towards giving birth soon and etc. Well, she was very nice and hopefully she will be a good midwife soon. I bet she will!
Then during the ultrasound scan, Adik was asleep. He made only a few but not strong jolts. The doctor checked on him as usual and explained them to us. Hubby noticed Adik was opening and closing his mouth but I couldn’t see that though. His weight as of Friday, was 1769g. Macam biasa la… anak2 I mmg panjang tapi slim. Hopefully dah besar nanti Adik mmg tinggi la. Mana tau ikut uncle2 dia ke. Leh tolong Mama dia capai2 barang. Sebab Mama ngan Papa dia ni cute je ahaha! But as usual, the image wasn’t clear so I wasn’t feeling so excited. But this time the doctor also showed us and calculated the blood transfer between me and the baby through the umbilical cord. He scanned there quite a while and there were just silence between us. Lastly he said that everything was okay, phew! I really don’t like it when the doctor likes to stay silent. I know that sometimes he just got engrossed with the job he is doing but he should have said something or anything at all at least. It is always very crucial to me to wait and hear for the final OK word though the whole scenario sometimes takes less than 5 minutes. Well… I’m still much traumatised by the final ultrasound scan of Lil’ Munchkin No.1. At that time I was still in denial but at the same time I was rational enough to see the reality happening around me. I didn’t want to say it and kept waiting for the doctors to pronounce it already and finally they did. And that was the LONGEST WAIT in my life. So, truly I really hate it when the person checking on me stay silent even for a freaking 1 minute!
It should be the image of his face.

As and over all everything was okay, Alhamdulillah. Now regarding me, nowadays I’ve started to feel hurt and uncomfortable at here and there all around my body. The most obvious ones are sciatica, carpal tunnel, heartburn, leg pain, fatigue, excessive heat and perspiration, fatigue and frequent urination! I visit the toilet 100 times a day! The hardest part, is of course suddenly being awaken in the middle of the night by the feeling of urge to pee, after hours struggling to sleep, forcing myself to the toilet and finally fighting myself back to sleep again! Plus, it really doesn’t help it when nowadays Adik prefers to really play starting the midnight. Hopefully he will leave this habit and only play during the day once after he pops out soon (I’m crossing my finger!). Owh yeah, I noticed that I developed another new symptom, the nauseous! Woah this is what I hate most! I think it is caused by the wind too. Sometimes I feel nauseous in the morning and night when I’m in bed. I just really hope it won’t get worsen. I didn’t get this during the 3rd trimester of my 1st pregnancy though.
The most important thing I want to tell hear is I think I’ve started to feel Braxton Hicks. I said I think because… well I don’t know. It feels different this time compared to the previous pregnancy. The scary part is sometimes I feel sudden pain in my lower abdominal area and back. Jeez that really scares me because it feels similar like during the very earliest stage of giving birth only that there is no contraction! Fortunately it lasts only a few minutes and not continuous. We were told during check up that it is just nothing to worry about. Of course they said that after being satisfied with my answers. It could also caused by the baby starts to slowly descending and many other things. I should just keep being aware of premature delivery symptoms or whatever. But so far they are just nothing. I’m not scared to go through labor again because I feel so ready this time. But I just pray that everything will go on very normally and smoothly after I reach full term. I’ve already got huge extraordinary one during last time. Xpelah… apa2 hal pun at the end we can only tawakal saja 😉
Sometimes, I just feel that I can’t wait for all of these to end. So that I can stop battling with the emotions. But sometimes I just feel so scared for all of these to end soon because I’m sure I’ll definitely gonna miss this pregnant feeling again. Well… whatever it is gonna happen, I just hope everything ends beautifully well and fine and I manage to just smile in bliss every time after I finished reminiscing all the moments I had just gone through, InsyaAllah 🙂
Owh yeah, both the big parcels which my mom sent one via airmail last week and another one via seamail last month had finally arrived last week yeay! So now almost all the baby stuffs, confinement stuffs and a few other things are completed. I have only a little more things to buy before I reach full term and get everything prepared 🙂 Sigh… I don’t know what’s wrong with the browser and server today and I’m just so annoyed grrr! 🙁 But I’ll just leave this to hubby to figure out. So I’ll just continue next time on final preparation towards delivery and on hubby’s birthday celebration 😉
