Thabbit Qulubana 'ala Diinik
By and me went for our weekly check-up at Ampang Puteri yesterday. With a simple touch on my belly, Dr. Ariza confirmed that the baby has descended into my pelvis. I tried to joke around, saying that it must take her 7 years in med school to be able to do that since I couldn't even tell where my baby's head was. All I can feel was his tiny little toe when he's kicking my tummy. She replied half-jokingly, "Actually it took more than 7 years. With all the practices and other stuff, it may take 10 years all together.." Wokeyh Doc, got your point! :p
Dr. Ariza is a pretty sweet lady, I'm glad that she can handle all our questions, even the silly ones, with her informative style and character. Hopefully she'll be around when the time comes for my labour. I heard from a friend of mine that she's gentle enough, and plus she recites some doa before the delivery too. So, insyaAllah I'll be in good hands with some doa along my way. :)
However, she also thought that my amniotic fluid (air ketuban) was quite low, but still sufficient for the baby. The doctor sent me to an observation room to do a SGT to monitor the baby’s heart and alhamdulillah the baby sounds perfectly active and healthy.
However, I do need to come back to her office next Monday and Dr. Ariza will run another scan on me to monitor the level of my amniotic fluid. If she thinks that the level is decreasing, she’ll induce me right away. Wow..that is something that we did not expect actually.
I’ve heard that inducement has its own risk and it feels a little more painful than giving birth naturally. But the low level of my amniotic fluid worries me more.
I’m praying that the baby will come out soon before Monday, insyaAllah (^-^)
