My Pregnancy Journey : Laboratory Tests

This is my fifth pregnancy but only 1 is full term. I already had 3 miscarriages and to ensure that this pregnancy will be on full term, I decided to look for a new OB who can take care of my situation. My new OB, learning from my history of pregnancy, requested me to have series of laboratory tests in order to determine what may cause my constant miscarriages. Laboratories such as glucose level, hepatitis, thyroid function tests, hematology, and APAS.  APAS Blood sample Results are mostly within normal range except for the glucose level which go a little bit beyond the normal range. So after a week, she asked me to have a higher dose of glucose test (100ml OGTT)  HOW OGTT IS DONE? There is an 8hour fasting required in order to be legible for this test. Upon arriving at the clinic, the nurse extracted the first blood sample. Then she gave me a bottle of drink that needs to be consumed immediately. It is very sweet and thick and at on

My Pregnancy Journey: The Day we knew you exist

It was nov 4, 2013 when i first felt your existence. The first test was a little unclear but i still believed it is a positive result. Pregnancy Test 1 So I had another test the day after.Result is the same, partial positive.  Pregnancy Test 2 Nov 14, i made another test. I haven't told my husband yet about this as i want to have a clear result before telling him. Pregnancy test 3 Now it is a clear positive result. This is my 5th pregnancy. Sadly, only one is alive. We had been waiting for our next angel to come and praying this is really is it. We only told our immediate family about my pregnancy as we are afraid it might not go to a full term pregnancy again. We dont want to get disappointed. We will wait for the right time before we tell it to most of our friends.

Going Crazy over #Teamkramer

I am not the type of person who follows celebrity/celebrities. But this celebrity caught my attention for the reason that she is very active in instagram and she was famous during my high school days. I started following her IG around middle of April (2013). Ms Cheska Garcia-Kramer is not the usual celebrity who posts what foods she is eating, what branded wardrobes she wears, nor parties or shoots that she's into. Rather, she is posting her daily life with her family,  her kids Kendra, Scarlet and Gavin, and from time to time her husband Doug is on the limelight of her IG. Other posts she did was the items that were given by some fans, shop/boutique owners, and friends. Items like bags,make up,accessories, cakes/cupcakes, stuff for kids, etc. Most of the shops are homebased or start up trying to build consumers through Cheska's IG wherein the market are families and audience are wholesome. Cheska is very kind to posts (most) of the items that she is receiving at no cost.
