Assalamualaikum

Alhamdulillah

Tak sedar pun hari ni dah masuk 24 minggu. Minggu akhir dalam 2nd trimester.

Baby!

You've been 6 month in Mommy's tummy!

Makin kuat kick Mommy. Siap buat somersault ke apa. Sampai berombak perut Mommy. Don wori! Mommy SUKA!

Subhanallah! 
Ini la nikmat yang paaaaling Mommy nak nikmati bila pregnant. Sebab kurang 5 bulan je semua ni Mommy boleh rasa. Rasa sesuatu bernyawa hidup dalam perut kita. Tak boleh nak gambarkan perasaan tu.
Alhamdulillah!

Adik Arissa ni dia paling aktif lepas waktu berbuka. Sambil rehat depan tv Mommy kena baring. Sebab nanti rasa macam pergerakan dia tersekat bawah tulang rusuk. Lagi 1 bila baring atau separa baring dengan kaki berlunjur, Mommy boleh tengok perut ni bergerak.

  • Baby's see-through skin is gradually becoming more opaque.
  • And baby's got a new pink glow, thanks to the small capillaries that have recently formed.
 
 
Your 10.5-to-11.8-inch fetus weighs about 12.7 to 20.8 ounces, and every week baby gets closer and closer to being ready to survive (and thrive!) in the outside world.
Drink up! Around 24 weeks, your doctor will order a Glucose Tolerance Test—one of the more memorable prenatal tests—to see if you’re at risk for gestational diabetes. Basically, the test is designed to see how your body processes sugar, so you’ll be asked to drink a cup of a sweet drink called Glucola (which reminded us of Gatorade) and then hang out for an hour. Once the hour is up, you’ll have your blood drawn and then it will be tested to see how your body has processed the sugar. You know what’s also sweet? Those movements and kicks you’ve been feeling. They seem to get stronger every week. At week 24, baby’s progress isn’t just about internal stuff, it’s about looks too. With pinker, more opaque skin, baby's looking more and more, well, like a baby. You, on the other hand, are probably experiencing some of the discomforts of the later months of pregnancy at week 24—leg cramps, backaches, swollen feet. Hang in there, mama-to-be!

Pregnancy Symptoms at 24 Weeks

  • Swollen ankles and feet. Be sure to elevate them while you're sitting.
  • Leg cramps, which can be sign of dehydration.
  • Backaches—yup, still!
  • Linea nigra. That's the dark line that runs up the center of your belly. It will fade after baby's born.
  • Stretch marks, which may continue to appear as your skin stretches even more.
