Yup, nausea is back. Heartburn is also felt more frequently. Sleeping at night is still a problem. Can’t seem to sleep comfortably anymore. Am keeping wide awake at ungodly hours. Having morbid thoughts as well!!
We will be meeting the maid agency owner tomorrow. Hopefully, all goes well.
The gynae visit was cool. Though the first words of my gynae was, ‘Only 5 months and your tummy so big? Must be angin!’
Anyway, the month before, the gynae asked if we are interested to have a full baby scan (that is in other words, pay RM200 more). Hubby wanted to get it done. So, off we went to see the sonographer this month. It was only partially done as the baby was breeched and was facing downwards. The gender was revealed, though couldn’t be confirmed 100% due to baby’s downward facing position. The remaining scan to be done next month.
The good doctor gave a fright too. My blood test indicates possible Thalassemia due to the red blood count was lesser than what it should be and the size in considerably smaller too. I looked at my husband, my husband looked at me. Not possible. Thalassemia is genetically passed down. How come my previous blood tests did not indicate this. So that was ruled out. I was asked to take iron laden food for I am now considered anemic.
Otherwise, all is well. Most importantly, so is the little one in the tummy.
Not only my tummy is considerable bigger. So is my bum!! 😦
More weight to lose post delivery.
The reasons for most of my ‘ugliness’ is well highlighted here.
