I know nothing about pregnancy. But I really do want to have a baby as I’m not getting any younger. Undergoing lots of tests are one of a newly pregnant women must do. Especially Blood tests which is very useful for checking the health of the baby and the mother. And to check whether we both need proper care in case they’ve found something wrong with me and my baby. Some of the tests are HIV tests, Hepatitis B, Anemia, Blood group, Rubella and etc.
August 4 at 2:15PM. I was scheduled for my second appointment. I don’t have Idea what will Julie (my Midwife) needs to discuss or do today. All I know is a need to fill up a small bottle of urine to monitor any problems regarding my urinary tract. And I need to give her a bottle every time we will meet which is fine with me.
As I handled her the urine. She goes straight to test it. So no problem at all. Then get my Blood Pressure which is 90/50. That’s too low for me but according to Julie its still normal for pregnant women to have that kind of BP.
Next thing she asked is if I have decided what blood tests I want to undergo. Uh-oh! That’s the book and the pamphlet she gave me last time which I only read once. Habibi hasn’t even touched it. Had to be honest and answered her I’m not decided yet. But I told her I’m interested to undergo most of it just not the HIV test as I’m 200% sure i don’t have it.
She filled up my pregnancy book and started preparing that damn needle and four bottles. Flippin’ heck that’s quite a lot I told myself. But when she started putting the needle on to my vein, gosh I can hear the blood flow filling up those bottles. Had to think “ For My little one, I can do everything”. Habibi’s looking at me while Julie is doing her business..He knows its painful but he thinks I’m brave coz I can even look at my own blood while she’s doing it.
Finally, it’s all finished. I will now have to wait for Blood test result by post and of course the ultra sound scan appointment Julie made for me last week.
I will post here the result of all the Blood tests they’ve made later on.
