Pregnancy at month 7...

~ Posted on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 at 8:41 AM ~

Wow... I can't believe it! We are cruising into the 7th month of my pregnancy now! Updates for this month since my previous status updates in pregnancy at month 6 are as follow:

#1: This baby is STILL a wee bit SPICY BABY, but hey, mummy's snacking on sweet stuff too!

I'm still wolfing down spicy food at month number 7 though lately I've more and more been eating more  sweet stuff... like chocolates, cakes, doughnuts and stuff... yup.. CHOCOLATES definitely! Just can't seem to have enough of it! Especially this chocolate layered bun with choc cream filling:

I can eat 2 of this in one go... yummmmsss!

#2: Weight Gain

I have gained yet another 1.9 extra kg for this month, making it to 53.9kg now. Oh crap, crap, crap. My gynae already mentioned the 3kg gain during my last month visit.. and I'm adding almost 2kg this month... gulp!! Anyway, gynae said weight gain is normal, to continue eating like normal... phew...

#3: Gynae check-ups

During this round of check-up, we tried out the 4D ultrasound machine again and still, I am not able to see with my own eyes the gender of Spicy Baby. Can you believe it?! 7 months already and we still can't see the gender!!!

He or she is always on his/her sides and closing legs... what is there to see? So ladies and gentlemen... gender = still unknown yet... Btw, Spicy Baby's weight is now over 1kg few grams already.

#4: Breastfeeding during pregnancy

Yup, my breastmilk production has been reduced to nothing from 5th month. But Ben is still dry suckling from me, and I can tell he's doing so for comfort nursing  as he only suckles me when he's about to go for his daytime nap and bedtime at night (each time around 10 minutes to half hour duration - depending how playful he is)

Again, I hope that we can go for tandem nursing when the baby is born and I hope that I could make tandem nursing works!

(*** NEW!) #5: Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT)

New thing to report this month! I finally had to take the GT test after being able to avoid it when I was pregnant with Ben. Apparently this test is to be taken at 7th month pregnancy, especially if you have family history of having diabetes. Both my parents had them and my mum passed away due to total kidney failure caused by diabetes.

We were seeing a private gynae right up until my 7th month when I was carrying Ben and we didn't take the test but this time, we are consulting under a semi private hospital and our gynae told us that I MUST take the test due to my family history.

So, the night before the test, I started fasting from 9pm, taking only plain water and nothing else, and waited till the next morning 9am to have my blood test (just a little prick on my finger) and was given this  300ml glucose solution to drink.

I almost felt guilty drinking it as it tasted exactly like soft drinks, kinda like having soft drinks for my breakfast! But then I was too hungry to complain anyway!

Result: My blood sugar level before the taking the drink is 4.6 (anything below 6 is normal) and after 2 hrs (only take plain water) is 6.3 (normal reading is between 6.1 to 7). Yeay! Passed!

(*** NEW!) #6: My expanding rear end?!

Another new thing to note, I have just heard a remark from my MIL that she noticed my rear end is getting bigger! Yikes! I'm feeling rear-end conscious now!

So there you go, updates as at 7 months pregnancy... and I'll be scheduled for fortnightly gynae check-ups from now on... Have a blessed week and thank you for reading!

Walauweh...that is one sinful looking choc bun! Glad you passed your glucose test. Don't worry about your rear end, it'll disappear with all the nursing you'll be doing with both your kids. I had a super huge one too.

Catheryn @ Pinkbibs

You are one lucky preggy mummy to be weighing only 53kg after vacuuming down all those rich and yummy stuff!!

And talking about not-so-small rear end, again, you are one lucky lady.  I have big rear end preggy or not. Heck! Smile

Jenny @ I'm a full-time mummy

Hey Sumijelly!
Tu la.. makan cam biasa tapi naik 2-3 kg jugak.. ish... and yes, yes, must still control makan and sugar intake! Smile

Hey Germaine!
Ehem, you can get those sinful looking choc buns from Bread Story hehehe...

Jenny @ I'm a full-time mummy

Hey Catheryn!
Ermmm.. but I have to control the weight gain as any heavier I would have to end up delivering via C-sect (cos of my small body frame) but according to our gynae yesterday, so far, so good! Smile


Hey Jenny!!  So glad that everything is looking good!  yay Smile


Read about your pregnancy and doing check-ups at Putrajaya Hospital under FPP. I'm currently 4 months pregnant and thinking of doing my check-ups at Putrajaya Hospital under FPP too. May I know who is your gynae?

Jenny @ I'm a full-time mummy

Hi Syazrinee,
I'm currently seeing Dr Azmi. If you're going to be under FPP, there are about 4 specialists there to choose from, 2 females and 2 males. One of the female specialists, if not mistaken is the O&G Head, of course maybe you think she'll have more experience but in my opinion, I think she will be busy too Tong Plus I'm more comfortable with male doctors. Maybe cos they are gentler. Another male specialist there is Dr Hazmin if I remembered his name correctly. But after googling around, I end up choosing Dr. Azmi Smile So far, so good. He takes his time to check you and explain things to you.
