Pregnancy Week 11: Diarrhoea and Stomach Discomforts

Today my unborn baby turns exactly 11 weeks (Yay! One more week to go to cross the first tri-semester!) and I was actually scheduled to see my Gynae for regular monthly check-up this coming Saturday. However, I have been having mild diarrhoea since Sunday and practically feeling the horrible stomach discomforts all day long. I could not sleep well last night because my stomach was so much in agony. Therefore, this morning I asked my husband to take me to the hospital and see my Gynae slightly earlier than scheduled to make sure that everything was okay.

Whilst I reckoned that my Gynae might not be able to prescribe any diarrhoea medicines because I am currently pregnant, I went to see her anyway just for the sake of my peace of mind. True enough, she just advised me to stick to bland food diet (otherwise, I will have to pay the price like now!) and prescribed me with some packs of oral rehydration salts to replace my body's loss of minerals in the past few days. Also, she told me to take one pill of Panadol to kill the stomach pain, if it gets too unbearable. No diarrhoea remedies given, as expected.

Anyway, on the bright side, I got to see my baby via the ultrasound scan again today and looking at how my baby has grown so much and moves actively inside me totally cheered me up (and eased my stomach pains a little bit). The baby even gave some water ballet shows for Mommy to see. My Gynae could not measure the baby yet because of the baby's funny position today, thus, she asked me to come back again on this Saturday to officially 'open the book' as per planned earlier this month.

Doctor bills: RM 57.60 (for Gynae's check and the oral rehydration salts).
