Just back from appointment. Today I am 38 weeks and baby weight around 2.9. Doctor asked me to eat lot of pineapple now onwards. Next appointment on 8th of May and EDD is on 9th :-). My GBS test result was negative.....yippie
After we finished our appointment, we were approached by a lady for cord blood donation(Singapore cord blood bank). She asked us to fill up a form if I am interested rather I asked her for some time, will give her a call tom. The process will be like - an interview for family background and health related qns. - Filling up the consent form. -will be required to give approx 30ml of blood(from arm) for tests at the time of delivery. -doctor will collect the cord blood and pass it to them. -For a year they will follow up on you and baby's health for any issues and may also contact the pediatrician......will dispose off the cord blood if there is not enough blood or blood is not fit for storage/further use.
