24 Weeks - Glucose Tolerance Test (2 June 2017)

I been informed by a nurse on last 2 weeks to fast at 12 midnight for the 24 weeks glucose test. No drinks and no foods after 12 a.m. I woke up in the morning feeling very hungry. Hubby and I arrived at Metro IVF, Puchong branch at 9 a.m. Again we met with the Sonographer who was waiting for nurse to open the clinic. 5 mins later, a nurse came and opened the clinic. 

The first thing to do when arrived the clinic is to do urine test. It's tested mild condition where the tester of the green colour no change of colour but the surrounding of the yellow colour change to green colour. I asked the nurse was it because I didn't drink water in the morning, she said it's ok. Then I weighted myself, 57.5 kg which had gained weight 0.5 kg in 2 weeks time.

After that, a nurse took my blood to test my glucose, it's 3.4 mmol/L fasting (before glucose load). Then she asked me to drink the sugary water on the table. It tasted not so sweet as I expected, I told the nurse the Starbucks coffee is sweeter than this drink. After drinking it, I didn't feel hungry anymore. The nurse informed me that she will tests my glucose again after 2 hour (at 11:20 a.m.). I asked for the nurse's permission to go out to walk around at Setiawalk, she    allowed and reminded me that I cannot go to eat and drink. 

I accompanied my hubby to enjoy his breakfast at the "mamak" shop. We spent 1 hour in the shop reading newspaper and enjoying "roti telur" and coffee-o. After that, we walked around at the Setiawalk then went back to the clinic at 11:00 a.m.

There were patients comings in and out on that day. At 11:20 a.m., the nurse tested my glucose again, it's 3.0 mmol/L 2 hour (after glucose load). Then it's my turn to see doctor Tee Swi Peng. He did ultrasound to check baby's heartbeating, head circumference, tummy, hands and legs. I'm a bit disappointed because not able to see the baby's face. Then Dr. Tee read the glucose report and commented glucose test was fine and baby's doing fine too. Total bill for the day is RM  245.00 (Consultation fee+Ultrasound+Glucose test).

  1. 我呀试了好几次的试管都没有用,后来因为自己慢慢查询啊,他们使用捐赠卵的方式,人工授经辅助生殖的方式,还能让我自由选择卵子,还能选择宝宝的性别,和一般的诊所比起好很多,也不需花上很多的费用,比起内地还真的便宜了好多,得到最好的理想,保证100%生育率,就是他呀 彼奥泰珂斯研究中心哦
