Pregnancy Check-up @ 36wk

As promised, here’s my ‘journey’ on Monday…

For the previous 2 visits, with 2 appointments – pregnancy routine check-up at Klinik Ibu Mengandung and ultrasound appointment at HKL… Hubby and I will surely go to the Klinik Ibu Mengandung first as the clinic is nearby my house, before proceed to HKL.

But, since we experienced unbearable waiting moments at HKL for the passed 2 visits… buli sakit jiwa ooo!! So, we changed our route this time. Instead of going to the clinic, we went to HKL first and reached there almost 8am. I was the forth or fifth patient I guess. Hubby smile peacefully! Not sure what went wrong or should I say… What went right?? Coz my name was called after the first patient - ‘round 8.25am. Perhaps the other 2 or 3 patients got special cases. Whatever it is… being in the waiting list for less than half an hour at the HKL was indeed a big WOW thou!! *grin*

The Indian male doctor was a bit harsh in toying the transducer which resulting in uncomfy feelings and even a bit painful. *Ouchh* On the other hand, he is pro thou or maybe he was lucky that morning for being able to see my baby’s face…. The minute he placed the transducer on my belly, he detected my baby’s cleft on the right lip. The good news is baby’s palate seems ok (without cleft). I hope he got it correctly for this one!! But somehow, doctor detected baby hands and legs appear shorten. Hmm… scan susah, nda scan pun susah.. macam2 ja ba…

So, I was asked to run a CTG (cardiotocography) to record fetal heartbeat and to identify fetal distress (presence of signs in a pregnant woman—before or during childbirth —that the fetus is not well or is becoming excessively fatigued). Recordings are done by two separate transducers, one for the measurement of the fetal pulse and a second one for the contractions.

Sempat lagi ba… Hehehe… Nurse told me that it would only takes 20 minutes, but I ended up lying there for more than 30 minutes. Grr…

After the CTG, doctor did a fetal growth graph. As per the graph, baby is growing. Of course la ba kan?? And now baby weighing at 2.34kg. Duii… kicilnya!! In fact, there was a 2 weeks difference of baby’s age. If base on my LMP, my EDD should be 21/10 which my pregnancy is now at 36 week. However, the scan result indicated that baby is currently at 34 week and my EDD will be on 9/11. Jeng jeng jeng… I guess I just have to wait until the day lah! Waiting nervously! *sweating*

Somehow, I have to come back for another scan on the 8/10/08 to monitor baby’s condition. *sigh*

We already done at HKL at 10am??!! Unbelievable… :lol:

2pm, went to clinic and only took half an hour over there. Noon is always better as lesser people mah! I will have to visit the clinic every week already starting next week. *sigh*

Oya… my leg (only the right leg) swollen for the second time already since I’m in 34 week. One of my friends told me that I have to be alert on that as she experienced 2 times of leg being swollen and ebb before she delivered. Gulppp....

Should be anytime soon huh??
