My 3rd Check up

Last Friday i went to Pusrawi for my monthly check-up...it was scheduled on Saturday, but my gynae nk pi Umrah..so brought forward to Friday..

Every time nk check up mmg excited sgt sebab..i got the chance to the glimpse of my baby..mmg tak saba nk tahu boy/girl...

Kt Pusrawi mmg ramai org..i thought private x ramai...tp ramainye...actually i was the 1st person register kt counter..tp my gynae ade minor surgery, so i have to wait for like almost 45minutes..thank god i brought P/S i love you. ..(my fave novel so far ..after Q & A :)) to kill my time..

Last check-up i found out, my iron-hemoglobin level was 8, my gynae said it was too low for pregnant mum.. actually i'm bit mmmm...surprised..i thought i'm healthy... :(

i dont experience morning sickness...i do throw out...but really2 seldom..i think what really disappoint me was..i've really put on weight a lot..i mean it's alot...tp darah kurang..mm..what went wrong, but mmg lately experienced headache..but through my reading some pregnant women do experience that..so i thought it's common...

what..really worry me is..hemoglobin carry oxygen...oxygen very important for the baby's brain development...takut sangat..my baby's brain development will be affected...i've tried to eat as healthy as i can...i eat fish, green leafy veggie, dates..milk...what went wrong?..but i dont take liver..i just can't take internal organ....

i read from the net..this person also got aneamia problem so....she hog on peanut and jaggery..then the hemoglobin reading jump from 8 to 12..in 3 months..not too bad huh :)

Pregnant women have to take about 30-60mg of iron..here i found food which rich in iron (i took out mane² yg i x suke)..amongs Date/Prune 1/2 cup (2.4mg), Potato (4mg), total cereal 1 ounce (18 mg), watermelon 1/2 slice (3 mg)...

others, which can increase the absorption of iron :eggs, citrus fruit, whole grain breads, cereal, dried fruit, green leafy vegetables, beans, peanut butter, oatmeal, mushroom broccoli..and asparagus.

My mission for this month...to increase my iron-hemoglobin level !!!!..Eat Healthier Jia...arghhhhhhhh..... (harap² misi berjaya)

Ptg ni pas office nk pegi Giant..nk beli potato, cereal, milk, baked beans, peanut butter, and bread.. i like the butterscotch...tp beli yg wholemeal la...:(

Next check up nk wat 3D scan la...i think below RM100 ..boleyla 4D scan mahal sgt..tgok la camne kn..kalau ade rejeki... :)

hi jia,
8 is consider low already even for normal people.. kalau dapat reach above 10 is better dear.. mak and adik diya ada anemia. mak diya pena sampi 6.2 je. too bad sampai kene admit hospital. so, diya ada la jugak info on this thing.. :)

utk naik kan darah, makan hati ayam/ daging la yang slalu org mkn nak increase the hemoglobin level. if jia bole makan skit pon, it's good enough, yela, for the sake of baby jia.. :)

tapi ada cara lain, jia bole makan daging. tapi xleh byk sgt. just secukup rasa.. :D then kacang pon jugak. and bnda2 yg jia state dlm blog jia tu.. ;)

good luck dear.. :D

Aziha said...

Thank you Diya...your mum 6.2? wow..that was very low ya...tu lah jia skang i try to eat some meat..

and now..like to snack on peanuts..
ya lah..for sake of the baby..

thanks for the info..luv yar..:)

itu la jia.. low blood level ni susah.. masa mak dia tu, anytime bole kene strok. bahaya tau. now kitorg monitor mknn die. kene makan mknn yg berkhasiat. n every few months ada check-up. ni ada ayam, daging, ikan masin jugak pilihan dia.. hehehe..

take care ya dear.. :)
love u too! muaxxx

Lucky you takde morning sickness. I had teruk MS with both pregnancies. Macam nak pengsan pun ada... The worst was having too much saliva.

Eat well ya. When's your due date?

Aziha said...

That's why, actually i'm really thankful i didn't have to go through MS..most my collagues..dtg office lesu..sgt sbb can't stop vomit..
