hi chico, no need for appointment. you have to come early though kasi if i remember it right may cut off sila sa kuhanan ng blood and sa morning lang. eh anlayo pa naman ng bayaran from MRL.

^^ ang ginawa ko, a day before pumunta na ko sa MRL kumuha ng form tas nagbayad na ko. mahaba kasi talaga pila sa bayaran. naisip ko kasi nun baka ako manghina habang nakapila sa bayaran, may fasting kasing 4-6 hours before kuhanan ng dugo, naisip ko baka mag collapse ako dun kaya nagbalikan na lang ako. :)

the next day diretso na ko pakuha ng dugo. around 8am ako dumating halos mag 10am na ko nakuhanan may pila din kasi tas iisa lang yung nag e-extract dun. wag mo lang kalimutang dalhin resibo mo. proof of payment ba.  ;D

Buti may bagong thread na,  i was about to make a new one na sana since page 31 na yungold.  However, i think this is thread 4 na,  hindi lang nalagay sa previous thread na pang 3 na.  To the thread starter, sis charliesangel, paki correct na lang po.  Thanks! 

hanapin ko mga link sa previous threads para yung ibang gusto pa magbackread mas madali mahanap.

Nung nagpa-apas ako sa manila endocrine lab wala rin akong preparation na ginawa.

^sige sis skylar-ddm post ka link ng previous threads. That would be helpful. Thanks!
Natakot ako baka bigla mag-lock yung previous thread.

I'll try to figure out how to correct the title. Baka need ko mag laptop, naka iphone lang kasi ako.
Thanks again sis!

okay, thanks mga sisters.  ;)

excited na ko, on whatever result/s we'll have, i think we're ready na, actually looking forward pa nga for the test and keeping our faith na may problem man e madali naman na magkasolution.

My SIL will give birth tomorrow, a bit disappointed kasi sana sakin manggaling ang unang apo pero both our Uno & Amare left too early e, but happy kami kasi may new baby doll kami, hehe. ;)

@sis chico i think the cut-off is 9am or 10am. better, 9am, naextract na ang blood. goodluck on your results. God bless.
@sis charliesangel thank you for the new thread. i also thought this is the 4th.
@sis kayemom pakwento naman how you went through. how many months 'yung 1st born mo inside your tummy? you mentioned IUGR sya, how long did she stay alive after birth? how heavy did she weigh? sorry ha, just curious. my 3rd is an IUGR too. so happy you and baby made it to the 2nd trial. had you gone through ivIg infusion also? if yes, at what stage of pregnancy? dra.aleta mentioned na merong akong kasabay, nag-oligohydramnios, nag-ivIg din at nag-improve na. the baby is really yours. thank you very much

^onga sis supermomwannabe, i'll try tO figureout kung panu ma edit yung topic.

^^sis pink_blush, sana dumi lang. Balitaan mo kami.

Mga sis, nay nakitang notching sa left artery ko na isa sa mga nagsusupply ng blood kay baby, though yung right artery is ok naman daw. Ngayon, pinapatake ako ng patch na ilalagay sa lower left abdomen ko, transderm-nitro or nitrolycerin.  May nag take ba sa inyo nito? Ano naging side effect sa inyo? Im scared na to take any kind of meds sa dami ng meds na tinetake ko. Tia.

mga sis so far wala naman spotting, hindi na rin naulit yung brown dot. sobra pray ko kanina.  :)

^ sis anong patch? ano yun ipapahid lang or iniinom? sa akin ang finding last wed sa doppler ko, may occassional notching daw, pinag stop kasi ako aspirin, so balik aspirin ulit ako. sabi ni doc, masyado pa maaga to judge. usap pa ulit kami next week pa explain ko.

^sis, parang salonpas na dinidikit sa skin. Sabi kasi ng OB ko, para mawala yung notching and continue yung supply ng food kay baby. Nabasa ko kasi side effects, natatakot ako.

sis text ka lang muna kay OB before you take in any med, although minsan natake na natin dati yung med before, better na sure tayo lalo na high risk pregnancy

@charliesangel , nung may uterine notching ako tinaasan lang yung dosage ng heparin ko, then monitor after 2 weeks ulit

^thanks sis arielle! Ang plan kasi ni OB hanggang manganak na. Haaay. Tanung ko na lang sa kanya anung basis. At bakit hindi na lang ako i monitor thru doppler para hindi naman matagal ako naka patch.

@supermomwannabe: Nabasa ko sa previous thread nag nitroglycerin ka sis. Sis, pede pashare ng experience mo? Tia. Senxa na, natatakot lang talaga ako. :(

@ sis charliesangel i also used nitroglycerin patch, 'yung transderm nitro brand, during my last pregnancy. wala naman side effect sa'kin. at 1st, half lang patch ko in 8hrs, tapos after i observed na i can tolerate it, 1whole na in 12hrs, thenafter 1whole in 24hrs till i delivered na. i think on my 23rd week sya prescribed sakin due to notching. may natira pa nga ako, binigay ko na sa PGH, para namang andami, 4pcs lang ata yun. :) pampaganda daw ng placenta, to improve blood flow. ang usual effect daw nya ay headache, sa'kin naman wala. hindi na 'ko nagbabasa nun ng mga side effects kasi kung [textspeak!]-ano na namang macucultivate sa mind ko. :) your doctor knows what she's doing, don't be scared. all the meds are for you and our baby. try to perceive baby's movements frequently. on your 20 plus weeks, right?

mga sisses. let's pray also for our doctors to be granted with wisdom to know the proper management unique for each one of us.

^thank you so much sis supermomwannabe, panatag na ko na i-take sya. Malaking tulong saken yung mga sinabi mo. Magalaw naman si baby, super likot nya. Based sa CAS, tama size nya, sabi nga ng OB/perinatologist na nag CAS saken, malaki daw si baby considering na may APAS ako, kaya we're so thankful. Im on my 26th week. 

Tama ka, my doctor knows what she's doing. I should have faith in her. Ipagdadasal ko na lang din sya.

Thank u so much!
