Terus i blur... apa tue?? Okeh I paste dari Baby Center. I pun paham lepas dokto explain.. berserta bantuan encik gugel..

What is an anomaly scan?


An anomaly scan takes a close look at your baby and your uterus (womb). The person carrying out the scan (sonographer) will check that your baby is developing normally, and she’ll look at where the placenta is lying in your uterus.

You will be offered the scan, also called a mid-pregnancy ultrasound scan, when you are between 18 weeks and 20 weeks plus six days pregnant. 

Baby at 20 weeks
The image on the right shows a baby's face and hands at 20 weeks, and gives you an idea of what you will be able to see at this scan. 

Seeing your baby on a screen can be a really exciting event. You can also take your partner, friend or family member along to share the experience with you. 

The main purpose of the scan is to check that your baby is developing normally, rather than whether you're expecting a boy or girl. However, you may want to know your baby's gender, or ask for a photo of your scan. 

Bear in mind that the scan's main purpose is to check that your baby is developing normally, rather than whether you're expecting a boy or girl. Sometimes excess wind or having too much tummy fat obscures the view, so it’s hard to tell a baby's gender accurately. And some hospitals have a policy of not telling parents-to-be, to prevent mistakes from happening. Ask your midwife about your hospital's policy.

Do I have to have an anomaly scan?


It's up to you. Early in your pregnancy your midwife should give you written information about why the scan is being offered, how it will help, and what it won't be able to tell you. This will allow you time to decide whether or not you would like the scan.

What will I be able to see on the scan?


Most hospitals allow you to watch the scan, which takes about 20 minutes, as it is being performed. If you haven't already had a scan in your pregnancy, the sonographer will check that there is only one baby, and confirm your due date

The sonographer will point out your baby's heartbeat and parts of his body, such as his face and hands, before looking at him in detail. It may be hard for you to make out your baby's organs, as the sonographer will look at them as a cross section. 

Your baby's bones will appear white on the scan, and his soft tissue will look grey and speckled. The amniotic fluid surrounding your baby will look black.

After you’ve seen your baby on the screen, some sonographers will turn the screen away for the rest of the scan, and show you views at the end. Some hospitals have a second monitor at the foot of the couch, so you can watch the entire scan.

Can I have a photo of my scan?


Most hospitals will allow you to buy a picture of your baby. These pictures cost between £3 and £5, depending on the hospital. These will probably be printed on thermal paper which is heat-sensitive, so you shouldn't laminate them. 

Make sure you tell your sonographer how many pictures you would like before you have the scan. If you want copies, scan them into a computer, or photocopy them.

What will the sonographer look at on my scan?


The sonographer will examine all your baby's organs and take measurements. She will look at:

  • The shape and structure of your baby's head. At this stage severe brain problems, which happen very rarely, are visible.
  • Your baby's face, to check for a cleft lip. Cleft palates inside a baby's mouth are hard to see and are not often picked up.
  • Your baby's spine, both along its length, and in cross section, to make sure that all the bones align, and that the skin covers the spine at the back.
  • Your baby's abdominal wall, to make sure it covers all the internal organs at the front, as well as check the placenta, umbilical cord and the amniotic fluid (FASP 2012b).
  • Your baby's heart. The top two chambers (atria) and the bottom two chambers (ventricles) should be equal in size. The valves should open and close with each heartbeat. Your sonographer will also examine the major veins and arteries which carry blood to and from your baby’s heart (FASP 2012a).
  • Your baby's stomach. Your baby swallows some of the amniotic fluid that he lies in, which is seen in his stomach as a black bubble.
  • Your baby's kidneys. The sonographer will check that your baby has two kidneys, and that urine flows freely into his bladder. If your baby's bladder is empty, it should fill up during the scan and be easy to see. Your baby has been doing a wee every half an hour or so for some months now!
  • Your baby's arms, legs, hands and feet. The sonographer will look at your baby's fingers and toes, but not count them.

The placenta may be on the front wall (anterior) or the back wall of your uterus (posterior), usually near the top (or fundus). If the placenta is near the top, it may be described as fundal on your scan notes. 

The placenta will be described as low if it reaches down to or covers the neck of your uterus (your cervix). If the placenta is lying low in your uterus, you'll have another scan in the third trimester to check its position. By then, it's likely the placenta will have moved away from your cervix.

It is possible to count the three blood vessels (two arteries and a single vein) in the umbilical cord, but your sonographer may not do this. It's not routine procedure. She will check to see that's there's enough amniotic fluid for your baby to move freely, though.

During the scan, the sonographer will measure parts of your baby's body, to see how well he is growing. The sonographer will measure your baby's:


  • head circumference (HC)
  • abdominal circumference (AC)
  • thigh bone (femur) (FL)

The measurements should match up to what's expected for your baby, depending on when his due date is. The due date will have been established at your dating scan. If your anomaly scan is the first scan you've had, it will be used to establish a due date.

Which abnormalities can be seen on the scan?


Sonographers have a list of conditions to look out for. The conditions are either very serious, which may mean that a baby can't survive, or they may be treatable conditions, once your baby is born. 

If the condition is treatable, it will help the hospital team to know in advance, so they can make sure your baby has the right care as soon as he's born.

Some conditions are easier to spot than others, and some are hard to see at all. Most of the conditions on the list are very rare. Here's the list of conditions, and the percentage chance of your sonographer seeing each one, if your baby has it:

  • absence of the top of the head (anencephaly): 98 per cent
  • cleft lip: 75 per cent
  • defect of the abdominal wall, where the bowel and liver protrude (exomphalos): 80 per cent
  • defect of the abdominal wall, where the intestines protrude (gastroschisis): 98 per cent
  • missing or very short limbs: 90 per cent
  • defect of the spinal cord (spina bifida): 90 per cent
  • major kidney problems (missing or abnormal kidneys): 84 per cent
  • hole in the muscle separating chest and abdomen (diaphragmatic hernia): 60 per cent
  • excess fluid within the brain (hydrocephalus): 60 per cent
  • Edwards' syndrome or Patau's syndrome (chromosomal abnormalities): 95 per cent
  • major heart problems (defects of chambers, valves or vessels): 50 per cent

Some conditions, including heart defects and bowel obstructions, may not be seen until later in your pregnancy. Having an anomaly scan will most likely rule out all these conditions, as the vast majority of babies are born healthy. 

What if there are signs of a problem on my scan?


Most problems that need repeat scanning are not serious. About 15 per cent of scans will be done again for one reason or another. 

The most common reason is that the sonographer has not seen everything she needs to see. This may be because your baby is not lying in a good position, or that you are a bit overweight, in which case the scan should be repeated at 23 weeks. 

If your sonographer finds or suspects a problem, you will be told straight away. You should have an appointment for a scan with a fetal medicine specialist within 72 hours. 

If doctors suspect that your baby has a heart problem, you will be asked to come in for a fetal echo scan. The fetal echo scan will take a detailed look at your baby's heart.

If any scan reveals a serious problem, you should be given plenty of support to guide you through all the options. Though serious problems are rare, some families are faced with the most difficult decision of all, whether to continue with the pregnancy

Other problems may mean that your baby needs surgery or treatment after birth, or even surgery while he is still in your uterus (womb). There will be a whole range of people to support you through this, including midwives, obstetricians, paediatricians, physiotherapists and the hospital chaplain.

Niat yang masih belum sedia nak dikhabar dan dikongsi bersama..
InsaAllah akan tiba masanye akan dikongsi bila benar-benar yakin..

Sebelum niat dan hajat dikhabarkan...
I lebih terasa nak meminta lebih dariNya..
Sesungguhnya semoga dengan segala izinNya.. Dipermudahkan dan disempurnakan..

Terlanjur rezeki awal tahun yang dilimpahkan pada i..
Rasa terpanggil untuk dikongsi..
Nak jemput tetamu ke rumah..
Upaya tu tiada..

Dipermudahkan dengan diraikan di Masjid..
Disebabkan dengan niat dan hajat yang mengunung tinggi..
I memilih pulut kuning simbolik pada niat i..

Dengan ihsan adik i yang sama-sama berezeki lebih..
Dia ikhlaskan dengan sedikit sumbangan..
Mak Lala pun sumbangkan sedikit..

Disebabkan... I terlalu mengagumi masakan mak i..
I pujuk dia masakkan i pulut kuning tuk sempurnakan niat i..
Alhamdullilah... Mak Lala setuju nak masak..
Semoga Mak ngan Abah sentiasa sihat..
Mekasih Mak ngan Abah..

Semoga niat i dipermudahkan..
Tak lupa juga pada ahli keluarga yang telah tiada..
Dikirim kan bacaan tahlil.. Semoga anda semua berbahagia disana..

Fetal Anomaly Scan

Fetal Anomaly Scan.

Disebabkan last pregnancy I ada masalah sikit (bule refer sini Memories) .. So kali nie I under closed Gyna supervise. Follow je sume advice dia.. End up he come with this "Fetal Anomaly Scan"..

Terus i blur... apa tue?? Okeh I paste dari Baby Center. I pun paham lepas dokto explain.. berserta bantuan encik gugel..

What is an anomaly scan?


An anomaly scan takes a close look at your baby and your uterus (womb). The person carrying out the scan (sonographer) will check that your baby is developing normally, and she’ll look at where the placenta is lying in your uterus.

You will be offered the scan, also called a mid-pregnancy ultrasound scan, when you are between 18 weeks and 20 weeks plus six days pregnant.

The image on the right shows a baby's face and hands at 20 weeks, and gives you an idea of what you will be able to see at this scan. 

Seeing your baby on a screen can be a really exciting event. You can also take your partner, friend or family member along to share the experience with you. 

The main purpose of the scan is to check that your baby is developing normally, rather than whether you're expecting a boy or girl. However, you may want to know your baby's gender, or ask for a photo of your scan. 

Bear in mind that the scan's main purpose is to check that your baby is developing normally, rather than whether you're expecting a boy or girl. Sometimes excess wind or having too much tummy fat obscures the view, so it’s hard to tell a baby's gender accurately. And some hospitals have a policy of not telling parents-to-be, to prevent mistakes from happening. Ask your midwife about your hospital's policy.

Do I have to have an anomaly scan?


It's up to you. Early in your pregnancy your midwife should give you written information about why the scan is being offered, how it will help, and what it won't be able to tell you. This will allow you time to decide whether or not you would like the scan.

Talib & Baqis Wedding

**Where to start**

Alhamdullilah.. 

Bila Yang cakap mak bagitau Talib nak kawin.. Spontan je mulut i sebut Alhamdullilah.. What else?? Alhamdullilah... Dia dapat menerima orang baru.. Rafiq akan dapat mak baru.. Cukup.. Complete.. Satu keluarga.. Perancangan Allah sangat teratur dan  rahsia..

Happy dengar dia dapat membina keluarga semula.. Berkasih sayang.. Berkongsi susah senang.. Berkongsi suka duka.. ada Shoulder to Land.. Meet soul-mate.. 

Ikhlas.. I masih lagi bule flash back apa saja yang Talib buat pada Arwah Normah.. Alhamdullilah.. nampak kesempurnaan disitu.. InsaAllah.. I doakan kehidupan baru ni, tidak akan diduga seperti yang lalu.. Agar semua yang indah berlaku.. Sama seperti kita semua..

: : : Yang : : :

Dari air muka dia nampak dia ok-ok jer.. Dia nampak jer Talib nampak berubah muka dia.. Dia cakap I sebak.. I bule fashback lagi kt amek family pic kat tangga tue.. Kt stay kat guess room tunggu diorg sanding.. Siyes i sebak.. 

Yang tengok Rafiq tido.. dia cakap.. aduuuuhh.. sedihnye tgk Rafiq.. Dah besar dia.. Dulu kecik jer.. Nie kalo Arwah Norma ada.. x leh dukung dia nih.. Tegap sangat badan dia.. Sambil usap-usap kelapa Rafiq yang tengah tido.. jangan kacau dia Yang cakap kat I nnti dia bangun tengok kita dia nangis.. Dia x kenal kita.. Okeh.. yang nie i terasa.. I felt so jauh ngan anak sedara I yang nie.. Yang cakap.. amek gamba Rafiq nnti leh tunjuk Mia.. 



Even Yang cakap Talib berhak mencari kebahagian baru.. Rafiq perlu mak.. 

I tanya Yang ready dah? Kite masuk hall.. tengok Talib? Okeh kata Yang.. Terus gerak ke hall.. G jumpe family Talib.. Sembang-sembang.. Tanya khabar.. We olls spend almost 2 jam kat situ.. Sama-sama meraikan hari bahagia Talib..


Yang sibuk ajak sama-sama tengok pengantin berarak.. I dah kekenyangan so berat nak bangun.. Yang sorang pegi.. I suh dia amek pic dia wat x tau jer..

Disebabkan i nih 'kenderaan berat' so i amek dari jauh jer pic.. 


Yang cakap amek gamba dia ngan pengantin.. Yea la..


Sempat mintak tolong Abang Talib (Mahmood) amek kan gamba ktorg.. 


Hihihihi... happy face Talib.. 

I wish... 

Selamat Pengantin Baru Lib ngan Baqis.. Semoga bahagia.. Segala yang indah-indah saja sepanjang perkahwinan ini.. 

Eh... Moon thank you for the welcoming hug.. Also kat aunty.. Uncle pun ramah bersembang.. Rafiq jer bangun cry.. x dapat nak mesra-mesra.. Ada masa panjang umor jumpa lagi..

Hadiah


Dengan nama Allah yang Maha pemurah lagi Maha penyayang.

Alhamdullilah.. Dengan izinNya.. November yang lepas dihadiahkan sekali lagi peluang untuk merasa nikmat berkongsi badan dan nafas bersama satu lagi zuriat yang sangat dinantikan.

Masih lagi dalam mood yang sangat 'fragile' i deside hanya untuk berkongsi bersama immediate family sahaja. Alhamdullilah.. Selepas 2 circle treatment bersama Gynaecologies. Ianya berjaya.. Hasil dari kejayaan nih.. I kene full rest.. Dok umah rehat jaga diri.. Mengada-ngadakan diri.. With letter support dari Gyna I amek unpaid leave almost 5 weeks.. Plus 1 week AL.. Bermula la kisah ubat dalam hidup.. Melayan Dusphaton nie memang mencabar tuk orang yang tak der morning sickness macam I.. Feeling dia swing sangat.. Menyampah.. Hahaha..

Tapi feeling dudok umah sangat mengatasi segalanya.. Happy.. Enjoy.. Seronok.. Undescrible.. :-) Handle Mia all daysssss long... macam full time housewife.. siyesly enjoy gilesss... Plusmore ngan hobi tido.. It's wonderfull.. I wish i can be full time mom.. :-)

Ikhlas i cakap.. the day before unpaid leave abis.. I x leh tido malam, mikir.. Demmmm sok keje.. Hahaha.. 

I naik keje with 11 weeks baby lam perut.. Sempat keje seminggu.. Suddently i bleeding lagi.. Sekali lagi I frust.. Bleeding sama cam 2nd pregnancy.. So i call Gyna ngan terus serah diri kat hospital. Berkampung 2 malam kat hospital.. bonyoh bont*t kene injection.. baru dilepaskan kua dan dapat lagi 30 days cuti.. Yang cuti nih best.. but the bleeding masih lagi ada bergantung pada pergerakkan.. 

Baru jer 2-3 ari lepas i naik keje.. kali nie with 16 weeks heartbeat.. Last check up outcome dia alhamdullilah.. Baby sihat.. Perkembangan also okeh follow weeks dia.. Aktif.. I bule keje macam biasa tapi x leh lasak-lasak... 




"Hai... Saya adik Kakak Mia.. Soon you olls will see me on Momy Blog"

Semoga Allah izinkan kesihatan i sihat dan baby juga... Its about 5 month to go.. InsaAllah..

Alhamdullilah..

Jauh dalam hati ada niat..
Niat yang masih belum sedia nak dikhabar dan dikongsi bersama..
InsaAllah akan tiba masanye akan dikongsi bila benar-benar yakin..

Sebelum niat dan hajat dikhabarkan...
I lebih terasa nak meminta lebih dariNya..
Sesungguhnya semoga dengan segala izinNya.. Dipermudahkan dan disempurnakan..

Terlanjur rezeki awal tahun yang dilimpahkan pada i..
Rasa terpanggil untuk dikongsi..
Nak jemput tetamu ke rumah..
Upaya tu tiada..

Dipermudahkan dengan diraikan di Masjid..
Disebabkan dengan niat dan hajat yang mengunung tinggi..
I memilih pulut kuning simbolik pada niat i..

Dengan ihsan adik i yang sama-sama berezeki lebih..
Dia ikhlaskan dengan sedikit sumbangan..
Mak Lala pun sumbangkan sedikit..

Disebabkan... I terlalu mengagumi masakan mak i..
I pujuk dia masakkan i pulut kuning tuk sempurnakan niat i..
Alhamdullilah... Mak Lala setuju nak masak..
Semoga Mak ngan Abah sentiasa sihat..
Mekasih Mak ngan Abah..

Semoga niat i dipermudahkan..
Tak lupa juga pada ahli keluarga yang telah tiada..
Dikirim kan bacaan tahlil.. Semoga anda semua berbahagia disana..
