Third Pregnancy at month 8...

~ Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 8:22 AM ~

This post is to journal down the 8th month+ of my third pregnancy now! I realised I did not blogged much about this pregnancy, compared to my previous one which I blogged religiously every month. From this point onwards, we are going for bi-weekly check ups with our gynae. Anyway here goes the update:


Sweet sugary stuff still lures me every now and then which I do indulges after resisting long enough.

My weight at this month (week 33 now) is 54.5kg, that makes it an increase of 9.5kg since I got pregnant, okay, so far so good, weight is gaining normally!


Gynae confirmed again beyond the shadow of doubt, 99/9% that we are having a baby girl! As for my amniotic fluid is a bit low, 9.3 during our previous check-up 3 weeks ago, it is now 12+ yay! Gynae shared with us that he always believes rest is important for preggy mums. When you are well rested, your blood pressure stabilises and you eat well, in good mood all the time and baby does not have to work hard or be stressed in the tummy, hence amniotic fluid is able to increase back slowly. I am thankful that hubby is understanding to let me rest whenever I can and he took over caring the kids when he sees me dozing off all of a sudden without a care in the world.

Being preggy now, I tend to forget a lot of things, hence the fetal kick count, glucose monitoring, wearing my Babyplus gadget, sigh... all forgotten... gynae did reminded me that from week 36 onwards, it is important to monitor fetal kick count as space is getting less and it is also indication if amniotic fluid is low.

During this check-up, I was also given a tetanus jab. I got the jab while I was preggy with Alyson 2 years back. According to gynae, the jab immunity lasts for 5 years, no harm to take, no harm not to take but he gave the orders for me to take. The jab is painful by the way, kinda like being punched real hard at the jab spot. This is a precaution in case I delivered early and not within hospital area (distance between hospital and our house is about 1 hour car ride)


Yes, like what I did with Benjamin when I was pregnant with Alyson, I nursed him throughout the pregnancy. This round? Same. I think my colostrum is back as I noticed Alyson's diaper is a tad heavy lately after her night time sleep.


Baby movement very very active especially past midnight.

So there you go, updates as at 8 months+ pregnancy... Overall, I am very thankful as all readings are normal and progressing well. Have a blessed week and thank you for reading!
