Third Pregnancy at month 9...

~ Posted on Friday, September 13, 2013 at 7:17 AM ~

This post is to journal down the 9th month of my third pregnancy now! From 33 weeks onwards, we are going for bi-weekly check ups with our gynae. Anyway here goes the update:


Sweet sugary stuff still lures me every now and then which I do indulges after resisting long enough.

My weight at this month (week 35 now) is 55.5kg, that makes it an increase of 10.5kg since I got pregnant, okay, so far so good, weight is gaining normally!


Gynae said based on my previous 2 labors at 39 weeks, our 3rd child will most likely be the same, to be born around 39 weeks as well. Baby weight based on ultrasound scan is 2kg at 35 weeks preggy now, slightly low compared to my previous 2 kiddos. Gynae expected 3rd baby weight to be around 2.4 - 2.6kg when born. He said anything above 2kg he's happy already as according to the hospital guidelines, if baby born is below 2kg, baby will need to be admitted to NICU for monitoring. I'm praying baby to gain weight a little bit more! I still have about 4 weeks to do so!


Yes, like what I did with Benjamin when I was pregnant with Alyson, I nursed him throughout the pregnancy. This round? Same. Nipples tend to get sore nowadays with Alyson continuing to suckle for comfort.


Baby movement very very active especially past midnight. Gynae advised to start monitoring for fetal kick count.

So there you go, updates as at 9 months pregnancy... Overall, I am very thankful as all readings are normal and progressing well. I do get worry now and then when I think of the coming labor, even though this will be my 3rd experience, well, every labor is different you know!

Have a blessed week and thank you for reading!
