I got the results of my blood tests yesterday. I'm happy to say that I'm diabetes and thalassemia free! Yay!
However, this doesn't mean that I can indulge as much sweets as I want. I still have to keep them in moderation. I don't plan to eat too much though and I still keep away from softdrinks and iced teas. At least I can have my favourite fruit shakes now. Mwah mwah mwah. I missed you, my mango shake.
The low hemoglobin in my blood was due to iron deficiency. After I finish my folic acid, my doctor already prescribed other pre-natal vitamins, one which has iron. She also told me to take fish oil which supposedly will make the baby smarter.
My next ultrasound will be on my 24th week. By then, we'll know my baby's gender. That's hmmm..11 weeks or 3 months from now. Leo wants to get a 4-D ultrasound but we'll see.
In the meantime, I'll enjoy the rest of my 2nd trimester.
