This is day number 202 and you're 28 weeks pregnant!You have 78 days or 11 weeks left, and are 72.1% of the way there.Baby's age since conception is 188 days or 26 weeks. You are due on 7/2/2008.
Your baby weighs approximately 2.4 pounds and is about 10 inches from crown to rump, or a little under 16 inches from head to toe. He or she has been gaining weight steadily during the past 27 weeks as its stem cells develop into organs, blood and immune systems, and bones. However, from this point forward, your baby's weight gain will be due to increasing amounts of body fat. A quick way to predict your baby's birth weight is to average your partner’s and your birth weights.
Most of what your baby does from now on concerns maturing in preparation for life outside of his watery world. Blood vessels are maturing in your baby’s lungs so that when he is born he is ready to take his first breath. Up to the minute he is born the placenta will provide him with the oxygen he needs, but after that he has to learn to use his lungs on his own. If you could see your baby this week you would see him go through a series of expressions including grimacing, frowning and what looks like a smile. Babies don’t learn to smile until they are around six weeks but often prior to six weeks their mouths curl in a certain way that makes them look like they are smiling.
Your stomach is probably feeling a bit squashed this week, so switch to eating small meals regularly rather than a big roast dinner, especially late at night so as not to keep your stomach digesting as you go to bed.
yesterday I woke up early in the morning when suddenly I had this painful leg cramp on my rite leg.It was so painful that I shouted for Zulffi to help me ease the pain. He was downstairs and he ran up to me. He then slowly massage the leg until the cramp vanished...so thankful that I had him with me..He was grinning at me..he thought I was going into labour as I was shouting for him quite loud..hehehe..well I thought he wouldnt hear me...hehehe..but the pain in the leg kept throbbing till today.. maybe I need to take more milk than the one Im taking now or more Calsium supplement besides the multivit n spirulina Im taking now..huhuhu
Yesterday was my ANC checkup..my current wt is 61kg.hmmmm..still rising but not that much..thank God...I had to have the Anti Tetanus Toxoid shot to prevent from "Kancing gigi"?
I was unable to lift up my left arms high n unable to sleep on my left side as usual...we had our scan yeterday..the baby is healthy n moving a lot..the heart beat is strong and the growth is normal..so all together is Alhamdulillah...we was unable to see the baby's sex..just to determine whether its a boy or girl but...its ok...maybe he was shy..heheheh..so watever it is, we accept it with our open heart n luv...
past few weeks, I had been cutting down my sugar intake as I usually had this cravings to take sweet stuff most of the time..I was afraid of GDM or my wt increasing tooo much....so Im taking it slow...although I still crave for sweet stuff, I only try to take sum everyday..n more plain water. I can't take much foods nowadays..I would be fulled easily and started to have this shortness of breath esp during after meal..so now I try to reduce my rice portion to maybe 1 1/2 scoop per meal, esp dinner..as it makes me feels like throwing up or regurge when I had my Mgrib prayer esp when I 'Sujud"..the foods feels like coming out again...I cant have long sujud esp after dinner.. even if I read Quran after mgrb, it will make me gasping for breath to reach the Harakat of the tajwid...as my baby is growing bigger n bigger, so is my stomach...
now I can't even wear sum of my baju kurung as it proves to be tighter esp in the waist...thank God I had make sum new ones esp for prgnancy n bought sum pants n blouses..heheh...
Lately it was soooooo HOT...with my current hypermetabolic system n rising hormones makes me sweat easily...the weather is so hot lately and it doesnt help with my condition...usually I had to take 5 times bath from evening til bedtime.one in the evening, one before and after Mgrb, one before and after Isyak...and sumtimes one before bedtime....hehehe..Thank God the water supply at home is free..heheh..
all that is happening to me is a new experience..to me n zulffi...I never know that it takes so much to be prgnnt...I usually feels like freaking out when I look in the mirror n see my body growing n enhancing here n there...hmm..would I get my shape again???hmmmm...well, i vow to myself Im going to Yoga class after delivery...we'll see whether Im going or not..hahahahah..
