so worried..

doc ang juz called to inform me abt the result of my blood test.. the test for bb's down syndrome is very very low but the test also include a test called alpha-fetoprotein that test if baby is at a risk of spina bifida.. for this test, doc ang say my result is high and that i have to go for a detailed scan at week 22..

i am very worried now.. will baby will alright.. i am so scared.. spina bifida is a neural tube defect that is the failure of the brain and spinal cord to develop properly during the 1st four weeks of pregnancy.. according to doc ang.. so far based on the past scans i done at doc ang.. she say the spine to her is alright lehz but to play safe.. its beta to go for the detailed scan..

hopefully baby will b fine.. its not a smooth road for baby n so baby u have to b strong.. mummy will be strong with u.. love u baby...

2nd Trimester of Pregnancy

I am now 16weeks preg and is in the 2nd trimester of pregnancy.. according to article and information on the net.. baby now can suck, swallow and is beginning to practise breathing. Eyebrows and eyelashes have started to appear.

i should b able to feel baby movements soon.. the other day dear raised his voice a bit at me and i can feel a kick in my tummy.. i told dear.. baby not happy that daddy talk so loudly to mummy.. haha.. not sure sensitive o is it baby kicking but i told dear he very excited keep asking did baby kick again.. hehe..

'When should I start to feel my baby move?
You probably won't feel your baby kick until sometime between 16 and 22 weeks, even though he started moving at 7 or 8 weeks and you may have already witnessed his acrobatics if you've had an ultrasound.Veteran moms tend to notice those first subtle kicks — also known as "quickening" — earlier than first-time moms. (A woman who's been pregnant before can more easily distinguish her baby's kick from other belly rumblings, such as gas.)Your build may also have something to do with when you'll be able to tell a left jab from a hunger pang. Thinner women tend to feel movement earlier and more often than women who carry more weight'

What a Pregnant Woman Shouldn't Eat??

I got this from an article of a UK pregnancy magazine and so thought of sharing it.. hehe

There are a few foods to avoid:

1) Soft, mould-ripened cheese - blue vein cheese and goat cheese. They may carry harmful bacteria.

2) shark, swordfish and marlin and limit tuna to 4 medium cans per week. They contain mercury which can damage baby's nervous system.

3) Raw or soft-cooked eggs. Not worth the risk of salmonella

4) Pasteurised o UHT, it may contain harmful bacteria and liver oso contain the retinol form, of vitamin A, which in excess can be dangerous to baby.
