I had a check-up today - 36 weeks now - full term!
The scan went great...Baby is in good position, head down...her size is small normal, weight 2.3kg which is great considering my diabetes..
then we went to see the doctor and she checked my glucose diary. It's not good news, I've been having many readings of 9-10.9 eventhough i'm following the same diet...she said it's getting worse towards the end of my pregnancy because there are more hormones making the insulin ineffective..so in the end she prescribed me with tablets to help making my insulin more efficient..
they don't know the side effects of the tablets..but she said they do know however that if the Baby continue to grow in me surrounded by high sugar, she will have high chances of developing low blood sugar (because her body produces extra insulin in the womb to cope with the extra sugar) once she is delivered, and this is dangerous and she may have to be taken into special care unit..so now i'm taking the tablets..hopefully it'll help control my glucose level now...
suddenly now i'm getting so stressed and nervous about labour...bag hospital tak pack lagi, nak pack pun rase mcm semua bende takde..semua bende tak ready lg...byk lagi barang nak kene beli...baju2 baby semua tak basuh lg, taktau mana nak beli laundry detergent and bottle cleanser suitable for baby..kat sini tak jual lak kat kedai brg baby mcm kat msia..agaknye diorg pakai detergents biasa je kot...i've got to pack a bag for Adam too right?sian dia kene tinggal..what and how to cook in confinement...what does the maternity ward look like, what is the state of the shared toilets..why is My Brestfriend nursing pillow so damn expensive it's unaffordable(Chun! simpan tau pillow tu...hehe) ok now i'm just babbling...byk sgt bende going through my mind now...i know everybody is gonna tell me to relax :) i'm trying, trust me..
