LO is 35 weeks 2 days yesterday, and we had an appointment with Dr Khoo to meet our LO. It has been a long 5 weeks from the last appointment. I was banned from fast food, icecream and durians from the last appointment and I had been pretty controlled.
According to Dr Khoo, LO weighs 2.65kg at 35 weeks 2 days, which is a healthy weight. On average, at 35 weeks LO should weigh 2.6kg. I had wanted to find reference online to support this, but it seems that the average weight for 35 weeks is 2.38kg instead. Hmm..
Nevertheless, Dr says LO is growing well and weighs healthily, I shall just listen to him.
My dear little one. In just another 32 days, Daddy and Mummy would be able to see you. We are looking forward. Stay strong and healthy. We love you.

I had also done the Strep B test. Results will be known in 2 days.
Group B streptococcus — also called group B strep — is a common bacterium often carried in the intestines or lower genital tract. Although group B strep is usually harmless in adults, it can cause complications during pregnancy and serious illness in newborns. If you're pregnant, your health care provider will likely recommend a group B strep test during the third trimester.
During a group B strep test, your health care provider will swab your vagina and rectum and send the samples to a lab for testing. In some cases, you might be given instructions on how to collect the samples yourself. Because you can test positive at certain times and negative at other times, you'll need to repeat the group B strep test each time you're pregnant.
If the group B strep test is negative, no action is needed. If the group B strep test is positive, you'll be given antibiotics during labor to prevent group B strep disease in your baby.
