Pregnancy with low hemoglobin

Jo Jie | 18:21 | 0 Comments |
Now i'm entering the 28th weeks of pregnancy..


Do you feel better now?
my weekly question from my mom.sister,mother in law,father in law and the list go on..

I feel so blessed surrounded by my loves ones that care ,concerns and really understand my situation during my war zone with vomiting phase of pregnancy a.k.a morning/evening/night sickness ..i prefer call it all day sickness.

pregnant mom really need this support system to go through the three trimester to keep them in the line...

i did tell you sometime i feel down and low self esteem when you feel so weak during the disaster first 2 trimester...

My challenge during pregnancy doesn't stop there...the nausea,vomiting phase is basically has gone...now i 'm facing with this hemoglobin thing ..i'm sure most of the mother know this...

Since my first baby..my hemoglobin always in the range from 7.2 -7.9 .normal should be around 10 and above

so after i got back my energy after the morning sickness thing over..i able to do a routine checkup in the maternity clinic ..so they found out that my hemoglobin reading is 7.4..so all the checkup routine will be more frequent than other normal pregnant mother.

The doctor is so worried  and ask me a lot of question..

."   Do you feel dizzy, do you feel about to faint,do you feel that  and this? "

so i just say

"yes"

.and without knowing what he is  going to do next...which i really regret doing so...haha

Mdm i will refer you to the General Hospital to see the specialist..

oh no! not again

to make the trivia of the hemoglobin thing short i decline to the doctor orders to be warded..

the reason is she wanted me to do blood transfusion.and i don't know what to think..so just think the negative part of it...the side effect,whose blood that they gonna take and so on so forth.

She said that they can't do anything else as i'm the carrier of thalasemia minor so the best way is to make the blood transfusion...


so i said to my self,i just get my appetite back and i going to do something about it..

yes ..for sure the Specialist Doctor  "consult" me really well by giving so many intimidation and so encouraging words..to persuade me to do the transfusion process...

and of course i feel so scared with the no guarantee if there is a little tiny side effect thing happens to me... i'm not skeptical about their job of giving what is the best for their patient but i think they need the skill to give comfort feeling and an assurance of what they want to do and really understand what the patient feels.

i cant stop praying in my heart that Allah gives the answer to my choice
on not to do the blood transfusion in sudden time.

So i'm not telling you that is the right thing to do ..but that is the right thing to do for me at this time and this moment..it is my body anyway..anything happen to me is a risk that i have to take...

During this time i always read the surah Maryam translation ..the story about a women name Maryam the mother of Isa.
facing the difficulty during her pregnancy time and during the delivery of her baby.

the story and the ayat always makes me feel calm and i really sure that everything happens and decision that we made is an instinct given to us.

"we shall allow our intuition to guide us"

 as it is given by Him 

Allah always ask us to keep on dua and also try to make an effort to solve things out.

so with a lot of reads

i said to myself to give a chance to try out all the beneficial foods and routine to make my day better.

so i try to take this


  • virgin coconut oil
  • goats milk
  • pomegranate concentrate
  • dates
  • zam zam water
and keep on praying for my health and the baby .so far the result shows improvement.
