Went for regular check-up at gynae’s clinic this morning. Clinic weighing scale showed 63.1kg… Seriously… How come I weigh so much heavier at the clinic??? It’s definitely not the weight of the clothes because I was wearing them when I weigh myself at home. Either one of the scales is inaccurate… At the previous visit I was 62.2kg so gynae said that the weight gain is within the limit so no worries.
Had the ultrasound scan and baby is doing fine. She is 1.75kg today. Her head has squeezed past the fibroid (measuring at 6.9 cm by 3.9cm) so gynae said that we can aim for natural delivery! Hooray! Keep up the good work, Baby! Also, she is no longer in the horizontal position. Her head is down, spine on my left tummy and limbs on the right. No wonder I always feel her hiccups on the left side of my tummy.
She has gained 310gm in the past 2 weeks. If she continues to grow at this rate, she will probably be 2.68kg at week 38 and 2.99kg at week 40. That’s a reasonably good weight. Hopes she continues to grow strong and healthy until full term!
One of the mummies in my group chat has lost her baby at week 31. It’s so sad!! She made it so far but ended up with still birth… Her baby was doing fine at week 29’s check up but lost the heartbeat at week 31 so she has to be induced to give birth. She must be devastated. I feel so sad for her… Hopes that she takes good care of herself after the delivery and be strong again to try for another baby.
This morning I weighed 62.3kg. Lost 0.3kg compared to 2 days ago. Maybe the water retention has subsided a bit so I am slightly lighter.
Baby boxed my ribs 2-3 times real hard last night. It made me breathless for a split second. I wonder if her fist would get blue black. LOL!
I started to drink avocado milk since yesterday. Plan to have it 3 times a week to give baby some good fats. I also have a small bottle of concentrated bird nest every week, hopefully baby will get good skin (according to TCM).
For the avocado milk, I blend ice cubes, 350ml of Meiji fresh milk, 1 whole avocado and brown sugar to taste. This will be my yummy afternoon snack.
And here’s a few pic of my rapidly growing tummy:
My belly button is gonna pop out soon… =___=”
Yeah~~~! Another week is gone! Baby is 1 week less premature tomorrow~!
Weighed 62.3kg this morning. =__=” must be the water retention adding on to the weight gain… My fingers, legs and face look super puffy. I am getting more and more hippo-lookalike. My white shorts (size 36) is getting tighter now. It’s even tighter when I sit down. Sigh… That’s my last pair of shorts which I can still fit. Plus, all my loose tops are becoming tight-fit now…
Now when I walk, I can feel pressure on my pelvic area. Plus baby likes to kick/punch my bladder. This is not fun because I had to pee 4 times in the middle of the night. Sleeping is also a problem because of the pressure on the tummy, acid reflux, and shortness of breathe. For the past few days I only manage to fall sleep at 4am. I had to keep tossing and turning to find a comfy position. And tossing on bed requires a lot of effort because of the huge tummy.
Saw this cartoon online and it totally illustrate preggies’ problem!
Yea.. The Husband slept so well while I suffered from insomnia.
Had leg cramp (right leg) twice and I thought I was going to lose the leg… I woke the Husband up once to help me stretch the cramped leg. He seemed very shock because he was not fully awake and he must have thought I was going into labor or what..
Unlike this pic, I can no longer wear my rings. My fingers are extremely fat and swollen every morning even when I am fully hydrated. The joints aches when the water retention strikes.
Lol! This is so like my baby. Kungfu performance every night.
Yep. The Husband is fat. Thick muffin tops and united abs. Now I even have to Meitu Xiuxiu his photos… Lol!
Another thing that I noticed is that baby gets hiccups almost everyday! There will be this rhythmic “kicks” and it sometimes last for more than 5 mins. I wonder how it would look when baby is hiccuping…
Anyway, I have to start packing my hospital bag/luggage soon. Just in case baby comes out early. *TOUCH WOOD!!!*
