2's progress...

Pregnant in Malaysia...totally different experience than what it was in Japan...


In Japan, they focused on my weight. Never really cared about my sugar...even though my family has a history of diabetes...including gestational diabetes... In Malaysia, you tell them and they make you take a GTT test...this time around I had to take it in the early stages of pregnancy, if it's negative they'll repeat at a later stage...


Well, yours truly is borderline, just like what I was when I came back from Japan last year and was 30++ weeks pregnant with Harith n they made me take the test. Last time they just made me take a blood test 4 times for monitoring in one day and decided I just needed to control my diet and that was it.... This time, with a new doctor, the practice is different, I have to do that glucose monitoring every time before a check-up.... oh ya and my check-up is really frequent...like once in 2 weeks...


So just for blood sugar monitoring...I now own a blood glucose monitor..brand * Accu Check..exact same one as my dad's which i used when I was pregnant with Harith...it's about RM 160 ++.... but i still hate pricking myself... At least I'm still on diet control...no insulin needed here...phew...tp stress woooo...cannot simply eat like most preggers do....


As for the risks of gestational diabetes (here's some I can remember):
1) big baby - baby can get stuck (need special manuevers for delivery - shoulder distocia)
                     - require larger episiotomy / might need a c-sec
2) low blood sugar - baby might have low blood sugar after birth
3) jaundice  - higher risk for baby to get jaundice


As for the diet control...well let's just say I have gained 0kgs so far... (lost 1 gained 1)..
Baby is on target according to doc... averaging at a 26 week old measurements.... EFW = 946g. Tp compared to abang dia at the same gestational age....he's smaller...


at 14 weeks

Latest scan malas nak scan...haha..bley tak....

Just hoping sangat2 that this one stays within me for longer.... x payah lah ikut Abg Harith keluar awal ye sayang.... ( tp doc kata hih risk prem jugak ....arghhh ).... Braxton Hicks awal2 lg dah rasa masa 4 mths dulu...mana tak cuak kan..so now whenever i feel one I cuak... dah lah lately makin kerap...but doc is not that concerned...as long as they are irregular...

more updates on 2 later....
