Last Tuesday, I had my pre-natal check up. Went there in the clinic before 4pm. Had to do the urinalysis first to check if the albumin trace I had in my pregnancy is gone. I waited for 15-20 minutes for the result, and then the staff handed me my result. My eyes went first to the chemical area – I checked first the albumin, I had it TRACE result during the entire urinalysis I had, and I sighed and felt relieved when I saw the result as NEGATIVE, I uttered “Hay salamat, negative na din”. And found out too that the pus cells which I had it first as 5-6 hpf, 4-5 hpf 3-4hpf – was now 0-2hpf!!! Yes! Finally, I had a very nice result. Unfortunately, UTI is still here
Dra. Valdez performed an internal examination of me, and she told me, I was already 1cm (March 13, 2012) and anytime by this week, I could be possibly give birth. So after the IE, she gave me an admission slip so anytime I felt the labor, I can hastily go to the hospital and be admitted. She explained to me how to feel the labor and the sign that I should go to the hospital.
Right now on my 38th week, I haven’t felt the contraction or any pain, I am just doing normal. I am spending my time doing the household chores and walking, a bit of sleeping. I am not bored actually. I am excited for ourbaby to greet the world. She’s doing the acrobats now, right at this moment while I am writing this post. Can’t wait to kiss and hug her. We love you anak!
