My little boy is finally walking! Nowadays whenever we plan an outing, we must make sure that wherever we are going; there will be an open space where we can let him walk around for a bit.
Another milestone reached! Keep making me smile, Shan.
I am so happy to be typing an entry on my blog about MY birthday. SO yes, have you heard that I turned 29 yesterday? Old news. I don’t feel any different from when I turned 28 last year…except err…I am a mother now. A very happy one.
It’s really hard for me to believe that I will be 30 next year. I remember making fun of my kaklong when she turned 30, calling her old and all. That was 5 years ago and I was 24, what do I know? But I also make fun of Diah when she turned 30 early this year…so I guess what I am trying to say is, some things never change. I am still very childish at 29. HAHA.
Speaking of which…there is one more thing that will never change when it comes to birthdays. Home party at the in laws with glorious food cooked by mak and daddy in law and our ridiculous themes. THAT will never change. It might just become a family tradition. It was especially special because everyone was there and everyone dressed up according to the theme.
And since it is my birthday, I get to choose the theme that I want and I decided on ‘ROCK’. Pretty easy right? So I thought. ‘aiyah…just slap on some eyeliner, black lipstick, Mohawk hair and done!’ I should have ‘think out of the box’ as per what Diah says. The rest of them are so creative! I know I don’t stand any chance to win this time round. DAMMIT.
So anyway, before I scare you with our individual pictures, I shall first show you the nicer pictures taken before we transformed ourselves.
FOOD cooked by mother in law. We are all so lucky don’t you think? Mak loves to cook especially if its for her family aka US. You should see the look on her face when we are all seated and eating the food she cooked together as family. She looks satisfied. Thank you mak! You are an awesome cook!
Cake from ‘Awfully Chocolate’ is sooooo good!
Shan already changed to his pjs.
The girls and me! Diah Mastura & Ili Diyana, where were you?!
“happy birthday to you….happy birthday to you…happy birthday to aan/kak nurul/ mapley/nurulaini..happy birthday to you….!”
Nobody else is interested in taking nice pictures nowadays. The rest only wants to dress up according to the theme and get their pictures taken. Bottom line is, we all love taking ridiculous pictures.
Are you ready?………
ANDA MAU ROCK??????
(ok lah, some of these rockers are not really rockers la huh…some are just MAT rock)
Innocent rocker Shan who only wants to bite everything.
MAT rock who went “Like Johnny Depp right?” 135634127391824 times.
See what I mean by NOT thinking out of the box? I look like I am about to host another Rock Elektra show. (super sore cos I rarely win any theme party!!)
This is a ROCKER people would call “dah relak ah”. That star on his left eye is so crooked, must be his daughter’s ‘project’. But look at him properly..he must have some relation to..
The I-am-so-cool-I-have-pig’s tail-hanging-out-at-my-back rocker.
This is a rocker who looks like Avril Lavigne.
The pretty rock chic.
Who say ‘Rock never dies’? This one sure wants to die.
The Rocker Rascal with blingbling on his face.
The ‘angry face’ Nadya rockers.
So who do you think is the most ridiculous looking rocker?
I would like to thank Mak & Daddy for always ALWAYS celebrating each and single one of our birthdays without fail. Thank you Ili & Bert for being there. It meant a lot to me and of course mak & daddy. Thank you to Sofia Dendroff for being so gung-ho about dressing up. Thank you Shafiq for ALWAYS participating no matter how tired you are. Thank you Diah for just being you, forever so silly but indirectly sweet towards me. Thank you Tatek for NEVER complaining about the theme we choose and for going along with anything at all, you are a great sport! Thank you Nadyas for being so cute and geyamzzzz!!!! Thank you dear husband for the beautiful gift and for accepting me for all that I am. Thank you Shan Ehan for your existence, you complete me.
Hoping to squeeze an update about this fidgety lil baby of mine. Yes, fidgety. VERY fidgety. Only 7 months old and he has shown signs of being a very active toddler in a few months time. Little Shanshine is no longer little.
Has it been 7 months already? That is 5 months to a year. It sure doesn’t feel like it. I still remember every little detail of my pregnancy and every little (not!!!!) pain I felt during labour. I remember pushing for 2 hours, I remember crying in pain and asking for Coke in the middle of pushing. I remember the very first time Shan looked at me in the delivery suite. His
eyes swollen, my eyes teary. He looked at me like he’s known me for the longest time even though we just met. I don’t think I will ever forget that. *wipes tears*
I was reading my weekly updates on my pregnancy and regret not updating on Shan’s monthly update ever since he was born. The first few months were kind of crazy, what with moving and all. I guess I am more or less settled now, so time shouldn’t be an excuse anymore. Still not too late to start, I suppose.
At 7 months, Shan is a really happy baby! He smiles at anyone. He smiles when he watched the news, he smiles at the toothless nyonyas, he smiles at the pictures of babies in books. Also, I think he has a thing for nyonyas. His favourite nyonya is a vegetable seller at the market. They seem to have a special bond.
But my happy little Shanshine has his tantrums too. Sleeping time is super important to him, and that is why I make sure he gets his nap during the day. He cannot stay awake for more than 2 hours during the day. He is a very good night sleeper though. He started sleeping through the night at 8 weeks. Went to bed at 8pm and wake up the next morning at 7am. Sometimes I will
wake him up and feed him, but other times I sleep through the night too. Hehe. BAD MUMMY.
But ever since I started him on solids, he wakes up at night at least once. I don’t know why, maybe he gets hungry. So I nurse him and he will go straight back to sleep. No fuss, no sound. He doesn’t even cry when he wakes up at night for a feed. He will just start blabbering to himself.
Naps during the day are very challenging though! He takes catnaps which lasts for 45mins-1hour and he gets sleepy again after about 2 hours of being awake. I’m trying to put him on a sleep routine, it is going to take time but I’m sure it will work soon! Here is his schedule every day.
7am – Wake up. Nurse.
7.30am – Shower, play.
8.45am – Nurse, nap.
11am (yes he naps for at least 2 hrs at this time everyday
w/o fail) – wake up, nurse.
11.15-11.45am – Lunch
11.45-1pm – Play.
1pm- Nurse. Nap
2pm (if I’m lucky) – Wakeup. Nurse.
2.15-5pm – Play. Nurse. (I try to keep him awake as much as possible)
5pm – Dinner.
5.30pm – Wash up!
6pm – 7.30pm – Nurse. Play/read/sing.
7.30pm – Nurse, sleep.
So far, everything is in place, except the timing between 2-5pm. By 4pm, he will squirm around and start rubbing his eyes wanting to sleep. Sometimes I put him down to sleep, but only for 10 minutes or so. Maybe when he starts crawling he will fill that time with ‘cleaning’ up! Hehe
Speaking of which, he haven’t started crawling yet but he is almost sitting on his own. I let him sit on his own
without any support and he can sit for 10 seconds before tumbling to the side. Like humpty dumpty you know. Oh! And when he is engrossed in playing (his favourite is the stacking bowls!) sometimes he can sit for a whole minute on his own. However, he prefers to stand most of the time, but with support of course.
I’m not rushing him though; he can take his own time on all the motor skills. It will happen eventually anyway.
Nursing – yes he is still on full breast milk. I don’t know for how long more I’d like to breastfeed him, but I am hoping to go on until he is at least a year old. Nursing gets easier and easier with time. I remember how freaking painful it was when I first started nursing him. I actually dread feeding him, oh my goodness. It was that bad! So new mummies, if you intend to
breastfeed your newborn please know that it might be hard at first but it will get easier and better soon! I have been receiving a few emails from readers about breastfeeding and I am happy to reply to any questions about breastfeeding.
Everyday Shan is surprising me with new things. Yesterday he giggled when I went “the fire engine goes nee-nar nee-nar nee-nar!”. Yes and I repeated that so many times just to hear the same giggle over and over and OVER again. Today, when I asked him, “where is the tiger?” He turned and looked at the sticker of a tiger on his room wall. I find so much joy in simple things like these nowadays!
And before people start to think that I am bragging about my perfect baby (but he is to me!), let me first tell you that I have bad days too. Just yesterday, my little smiley happy baby wants to show the grumpy side of him at a very wrong time. When the suria crew was here to shoot a Mothers’ Day interview! Sigh. Sigh. He was sleepy and squirmy almost throughout the
entire shoot! Good luck editing the footages, Latiff! Hehe
So there you go…7 month old Shan Ehan and his antics. I love this squirmy gundeng deng gundeng so much, if you can’t already tell by now. :p
Here he is blabbering…
Born on 21st september 2010 at 1006hrs, you weigh 3.2kg and your height was 52cm. Oh my, delivering you wasn’t as easy as I thought. You were sleeping throughout labour and when you slide out of me, you were still in deep sleep! Here’s a video of you seconds after you came out of mummy.
We brought you home the next day and instantly our lives changed. Amazing how a tiny tiny baby like you can turn our lives around. Mummy didn’t sleep at all the first 2 nights. You wake up every half hour. Both mummy and daddy were so new to parenthood, we didn’t know what you wanted and we thought you were always hungry. Mummy’s milk took 4 days to come in and daddy was starting to worry about you not getting enough. The first few days was tough. Mummy felt so sad, like I was unable to nourish you with what you need, but I didn’t give up. I persevered and bear the pain of cracked and sore nipples. It hurts like a $#%$&#*^(^!*^%*!#%*#%!)(@_$_)#%_$!
Honestly though, if it weren’t for the support I get from aunt dee and daddy, I wouldn’t have been able to do it. Although Daddy were worried for you, he never stopped encouraging me, he did everything I asked him to and even went out to buy creams and lotions to ease the pain mummy was going through. He deserves a big wet kiss from you!
Do you know that Daddy even did all of the work at home and all I had to do was attend to you? He didn’t let me do anything else; he even prepared breakfast for me every morning. Oh how I miss those days! I felt like a queen!
So anyway, on the 4th day when milk starts coming in, all you do all day everyday is feed and sleep. You are a fuss free baby, an angel! I had to wake you up for milk at night and no one believes me when I tell them this.
By the 2nd week, you were pretty much used to the routine. Wake up in the morning, feed, strip, play, shower, feed and nap. You HATE getting changed and you would scream bloody murder every single day when it’s time to dress you. Very stressful for both mummy and daddy you know?! :p
3rd week, you are more settled. I still can’t tell what your cries meant and most of the time when you cry, I feed you, tried to put you to sleep and you started crying again. Only to realise that you’ve pooed a whole lot! After diaper change, you will *almost* immediately go to sleep. That’s how easy you are. Basically, there is always a reason why you are crying.
Oh and how can I forget about the swaddling problem I had with you! You HATE to have your movements controlled, so you fight to get out of the swaddle till your face turn blue! I gave up many times and tried to let you go to sleep without the swaddle, but you would end up slapping yourself with your hands and you won’t be able to sleep. So what did I do? I swaddle you when you are half asleep. You were tricked darling! I placed the swaddle in your cot, and when you started to get drowsy, I put you in your cot and I swaddle you real tight. Easy peasy! But of course, by the time you wake up, your swaddle would look like this.
For now, I can’t stand to be apart from you. I am really afraid that I’d miss out on something, so when I went for shoot, I brought you along. Of course, I also brought Nana along to take care of you while I work. Not sure how it will be for the months to come when I need to work. Let’s not think about it for now, shall we?
So there you go…a whole month of being with you.
A year of waiting, 9 months of carrying and 18 hours of labour is nothing…now that I have you. You are all that matters now, my little Shanshine! Looking forward to the many months to come, insyaallah.
I love you,
As promised, a picture of my baby Shan Ehan Bin Muhamad Sofian born on 21st Sept at 1006hrs.
We would like to thank our family, dear friends who came to visit us at the hospital, those who sent gifts to our house, online friends from Twitter, Facebook and everyone else for all your kind prayers and well wishes. We were overwhelmed by the number of messages we received congratulating us on the birth of our baby. May Allah bless you, Amin.
“We’re a family now!”
It’s me again, baby S. I have a name now, as per mummy and daddy. They call me all the time when they need to make a decision about anything at all. Especially daddy, who only wants MY opinion. I mean, I know I am important and all, but gimme a break man, I’m not ready for the world yet. Let me enjoy this warmth in mummy’s tummy for a little bit longer please daddy? Tsk.
So anyway, my latest meeting with the doctor was few a days back and she said I am now 2.2kg, my head is already engaged ‘down there’ and I can no longer turn. Not fair! It’s not my fault that I’m this big, and now I have to bear the consequences of not being able to twist and turn anymore? Mummy should REALLY learn to control her diet. Boohoo.
Other than that, doctor also explained to mummy a little bit about welcoming me into this world. Mummy must have panicked because she had an intense conversation with daddy afterwards and Daddy had to keep telling her that everything is going to be ok. I hope so too, because I can’t wait to see both of them, just like them who are both excited to see me!
Ok, that is enough talking for now. Would you like to see an ultrasound picture of me? The doctor said it is not easy to snap a full picture of me, so she printed only some parts of me. First picture is a picture of my 5 fingers.
Doctor said I’ve got fat fingers. She was trying to be funny I think, but I was a little hurt by that remark.
Next picture, is my right foot. This is the one that’s been doing all the kicking. Heh heh
I think I look sexaaay as compared to mummy. Want to see her tummy now at 8 months?
There. What a sight. She has been getting stares from people wherever she goes nowadays. Her tummy looks pointed, some say. Doctor said mummy will only grow bigger in the next few weeks or so. I cannot imagine how big she can get. She already look like she is going to burst anytime. Or maybe that is a good thing? If mummy’s tummy burst, does that mean that I will come out flying from her tummy? Weehoooo!!!!!
29 weeks – 77 days to go!!!
At 29 weeks, i celebrated my 28th birthday with the family, both mine and husbands’ with a big bang. Err ok la, not really BIG, but for once the in-laws decided to have a birthday celebration outdoor and we had bbq on Sunday at Pasir Ris beach with the theme (duh) ‘Beach’. Lame, I know but we don’t want to scare the public away, you see. So, theme had to be a little bit more subtle.
For more pictures from the ‘Beach’ party, wait for Etrangle. :p
Baby S. Yes we have confirmed his name and after much thinking and discussion, it is going to be just one name instead of two. I don’t know why we cracked our brains just to find a 2nd name for him when there isn’t any rule that states we HAVE to have 2 names. So one name it is. We shall call him Baby S for now.
Husband and I already bought Baby’s stroller and car seat last week. I feel like a heavy load has been lifted off my chest. I know we still have a lot to buy, but at least we’ve settled on the big stuff for now. Other than baby’s stroller, we also bought his necessities like shampoo, powder, lotions, sleepwear, mittens and other nitty gritty items. Basically, we grabbed whatever we could for now.
My sister will be passing down to me all the newborn wear soon, so I won’t need to buy so much she said. I love hand-me-downs by the way! The husband said we should be getting all new items for Baby S because it’s just fair that we get brand new stuff for him, which I agree. But I heard hand-me-downs are good for baby? Or is that a myth? The husband’s so particular when it comes to buying for his son, even I couldn’t take it! Imagine I can’t even buy Johnson’s baby powder in pink packaging and have to get the one in white packaging instead? Lol, yes to that extend. Even after I told him how much I love the smell of johnson’s baby powder in pink packaging, he still insists on boring white. Blearghh…
Anyway, what other important items do I need to get? I will have to make a checklist asap or if any of you have any suggestions, leave a comment ya.
Reached my 27th week of pregnancy this week. Although it is the early stages of 3rd trimester, I am already getting the backaches and sleeping is very difficult at night. Whenever I face right, baby would kick and punch me hard. When I face left, my back hurts so I couldn’t sleep. So everynight I have to either bear with the backache, or let the baby kick and punch me all he wants. I always choose the latter, obviously.
The kicks and punches are precious to me that’s why I tried a million times to capture his movements on video. But I also failed a million times. He can kick me so hard everywhere, but the minute I press the record button, he would stop! The husband is my witness. He saw how abrupt baby would stop kicking and moving. Eh alamak, you CANNOT be camera shy, baby. Both daddy and mummy (especially mummy) are very shameless people, you know?
Now that my tummy is full grown, I have people coming up to me in public and guessing baby’s gender. Strange that almost all of them guessed correctly. According to them, if tummy is round and pointed, it’s a boy, well its either they are experienced or there is an octopus in them. :p
Picture taken at 6 months, 3 weeks
Baby is kicking me everywhere in my tummy right now. Left, right up and down. It hurts when he kicks me right under my bust real hard. According to gynae, it will only get worse in the 3rd trimester. The kicks will get harder and it will be more uncomfortable for me as I get bigger. Well, if mothers who are pregnant with twins can do it, I don’t see why I can’t! *an image of diah pregnant with mysha & myreen at 8 months just came to mind. SCARY*
My check up yesterday went well. Thank goodness, gynae said baby is 1.3 kg now, which is a good size. He is a medium-large baby and I don’t have to worry about his weight for now. Took a video of the ultrasound scan and baby was smiling and sticking his tongue out after we spotted his mouth. Haha It was all caught on video, but it is not so clear. Don’t think any of you would be able to tell where his mouth is. See if you can see his eyes and mouth from this video…
Can you? He might have his daddy’s eyes this little boy. My eyes are not that big.
Oh and FINALLY! We might have already decided on his name. I need to check a little bit more on the meaning before I confirm on it though, just in case. Once confirmed, I can already start referring to him as Baby S. Yey!
I am 5 months and 3 weeks pregnant. 6 months next week. Which means 3 more months to go. It’s getting closer and I am getting scared. :s
Nothing much since last update, but I have a picture of my tummy taken last week.
Tummy is definitely getting bigger and my navel, I think will soon start to stick out. It is now halfway out and it looks really weird. Baby’s punches and kicks are harder and he seems to be up all day, moving from one side to another. Loving it!
Husband and I still have not decided on baby’s name yet. I do not have any names in mind at the moment and I prefer to wait and look at baby first before deciding what name is suitable for him. A friends suggested that we shortlist a few and choose only when we’ve met him. We tried to sit and think of names with pen and paper ready, but we always end up making stupid jokes and wanting to name our baby some ridiculous names. I give up! Not going to put too much pressure on that. I am sure we will get to it when the time comes.
Shopping – Oh my oh my! I went crazy online earlier today looking at all the baby clothes I can buy for my baby! I seriously and desperately want to shop for him, but timing is not right . I found cowboy and fedora hats for 0-3 months and can already imagine my baby wearing hats at such a small age! How cute! I placed all the items I want in cart but I i did not check out of course. Lol the husband would probably kill me if he knows how much I am intending to spend on baby’s clothes ALONE. We have yet to buy the other necessary items like milk bottles, stroller and car seat. We have to do it soon though, since it is the Great Singapore Sale now.
I have been thinking about us moving out of 121 and moving to 216 in January 2011. Baby will be 3 months old by then, but the thought of staying at home, just me and baby scares me. For his first 3 months, my mum will still be with us so at least I know that if I have questions, my mum will be there to guide me. So once we’ve moved, I will be on my own. How do I shower during the day? I dont think I can leave my sleeping baby and take a shower. What if he wakes up and I can’t hear him? Oy goodness, I am being such a freak. I forced the husband to take at least a week leave after we moved just so that I can adjust to the new home and taking care of our baby all bymyself in our new home. I can’t imagine how it would be like. I feel so adult. Haha
Weight – I have gained a total of 9kg so far but I dont feel THAT heavy. I wonder how BIG I will get at 9 months. I hope I wont get too fat because then I will look like a giant. And how am I supposed to lose all the weight after giving birth? I heard so many frightening stories from my girlfriends who have given birth and none of them are nice. Lol. Good luck to me, I guess.
OH! Recently, husband and I have been watching kids whenever we are out. We will watch their behaviour and honestly, we are so so afraid that our baby will turn out to be loud and shrieky and cranky and will throw tantrum all the time. We saw kids like that and how their parents would beat and scream at them in public to make them stop crying immediately because they are embarassed that everyone’s looking. Please, I hope and pray that I won’t be like that. Insyallah.
Anyway, I want to publish this blog soon, for everyone to read. After I’ve sort the Nuffnang issue, I will and I shall! Going to surf and find out the price for the domain now. BYE!
I cant even remember what happened in the past week.Without realising it, I have already reached my 17th week of pregnancy. The only obvious difference is my tummy right now. I think it is growing by the hour or something. Husband looked at my tummy today and commented, “it wasnt this big yesterday. Did you eat a lot?” Well, I didnt. :-/
I cant recall what I did the past week or so except I know for sure that I have been having bad headaches almost every day. Tried to refrain from taking the paracetamol gynae gave me, but I eventually gave in when it got unbearable. Those pills doesnt work on me though. Maybe my body is too used to Panadol Extra. My bad, for popping those Extras whenever i was in pain. Gynae said I STRICTLY can’t take Panadol Extra. Hokay then, I shall ‘tahan’.
I have also been feeling guilty for not doing much for baby. Been so busy and tired lately rhat sometimes, I fall asleep while reading or talking to him. Make me feel so bad the next morning.
I feel like I haven’t been giving him any attention the past week or so. I was supposed to go to the library to borrow some new books to read to him, but I have been putting it off because my everyday are packed with things to do, errands to run. It is not an excuse though, I know that. Gotta get my butt to the library asap!
Last week, husband and I was supposed to go shopping for baby’s clothes, but AGAIN it got cancelled because husband has an assignment to finish. I almost wanted to go by myself.
It will be a chaotic week and I hope next week will be a better for me and baby. I need more time in a day, please! Sorry baby, I will be all yours from next week onwards, promise!
Yo baby wassssup!
You like rnb, which is a problem for me la alamak. Why didn’t you like mozart? it is supposed to relax you, you know? Well obviously you don’t. Is it too boring for you? Lol we shall try other songs then. But that doesn’t mean I will stop on mozart ok? Everynight in fact, you will have to listen to mozart. And were you punching me or something when you hear mozart? My tummy hurts! I think you are exactly like your daddy. :s its ok, he’s everything I want you to be anyway.
Anyway, I haven’t been updating about myself lately because I’ve been too busy thinking about baby. I am still vomiting and get nauseous every once in a while. Funny that I usually only vomit when I’m at home. Last weekend was an exception though, after attending a wedding and eating A LOT, I vomitted everything out in the car (in a plastic of course). Husband was so turned off. I was laughing as I vomit cos he was too funny. His whole car stank after that. Lol sorry la. :p
Lately, taste buster rarely visits me, which is the best thing ever. I still salivate a lot sometimes but mostly only when I’m at home. Baby really doesn’t like to stay at home. I think he/she takes after my mother in law. Haha she loves to spend time outdoors.
My appetite is still not too bad, except I don’t long for food as much anymore. I am not as easily swayed when people starts talking about food. When I’m at a food centre, I took a long time to decide on something to eat (which is so not me) and after I’ve ordered I wonder why I chose that particular food. When the food arrives, I cannot finish it all by myself and I can only eat very little. Good la, we can save cost. Haha. When husband and I went out to eat, we only ordered one meal. 2-3 bites are all I can take. Lucky him.
Oh and I’ve been drinking lots of hot plain water. Don’t understand why I can’t drink plain water at room temperature. I will get nauseous almost immediately. Hot boiling water works for me and I can drink it the whole day. So its either that or ice water (which I’m trying to avoid as much as I can cos I read that it can cause baby to have asthma). Once in a while I want coke so I let myself enjoy a cup. The husband probably knows that is bad cos he shook his head when he saw me drinking last night. “Nanti baby hitam” he said. Lol very funny.
My tummy is beginning to show and I look pregnant instead of fat now. The lower part of my stomach is potruding and I can’t hide it anymore, no matter how big my clothes are. Loving it so far, no complains.
My sleeping position at night is restricted now. I can only sleep facing right (baby is on the right side of my tummy at the moment). I can’t sleep on my left anymore. I’d get pains on my left abdominal area and I couldn’t sleep. I wonder how it’d be like when I get bigger! Gosh.
Ok, I don’t know what got over me and this sudden urge to blog. Am going to take a nap before going for briefing later at 3pm. Listening to love songs now and yes I get stomach pains right about now as I am typing this. But its not as bad as those I get when I listen to mozart. Hehe cracks me up. Alright. Got to go sleep now after doing some reading to baby. Tata!
I am lying down trying to sleep and thinking about being pregnant. How amazing is He to make us woman feel this way? I was reading a pregnancy book last night and learned that as I speak, my baby is slowly turning from an embryo to a foetus and by the time I go for my check up next friday, baby would already have hands and feet! I know I sound very jakun, but I can’t help but think about the awesome-ness of being able to grow into a baby in such a tiny space. I hope I’m not the only one who thinks this way because I sound like a freak. maybe first time mothers feel the same way? No? Mampos.
My mum was telling me about the sacrifices a mother will make for their children starts from the moment we get pregnant and that is why ‘doa ibu selalu terkabul’. Looking at my body now, I understand that that is the first sacrifice I am making for my child. Hahaha MY BODY! Ok la, I sound selfish but true what! Chet!
Maybe I am speaking too soon, but I still haven’t experienced any morning sickness yet. It worries my in laws very much. They told me to have it checked which is really funny because it is supposed to be a good thing. I guess I am afraid that I am not a ‘normal’ pregnant woman. But of course, I checked on the internet and frm books and it is totally normal not to get any morning sickness too. I saw how my sister and diah suffered during the early stages of their pregnancy and nooooooo…. I wouldn’t want to have to go through all of that! I pray for a smooth pregnancy, insyallah.
Husband and I, we both couldnt stop thinking and talking about the gender. We have a strong feeling that it will be a boy. Well, it doesn’t matter to me, really. I use to wonder if mothers mean it when they say “ala, girl or boy never mind ah, as long as its healthy”. Ooookay…now I understand how it feels like! Because I don’t mind the gender, as long as it’s a healthy baby. Heh. The husband’s already planning to play soccer and bring him fishing if its a boy. Pretty sure it will get bullied by daddy in law, shafiq and tatek if it’s a boy. Hmph.
Ok, these are very random thoughts. Going to nap now.
You are 7 weeks old today! YEY!!!
I can barely wait for my next check up cos I will get to see you again for the 2nd time. I wonder how big you’ve gotten so far. Maybe you are still a tiny peanut, but I am still curious to know and I want to see that pumping heart again.
At 7 weeks, I have already put on 6kg. That is almost a kg every week. FUYOH and I feel so heavy already. I don’t think I was ever this heavy and it scares me a little. I looked up on the internet and it said that i should be gaining 0.5 kg per week so erm ok. I should be 3.5kg lesser. I need to check with the gynae if I am eating the right amount of calories.
My breakfast has been really healthy ever since I started reading on a new pregnancy book. I ate 2 apples everyday now, without fail and make sure I have vegetables and meat everyday. Insyallah for as long as my appetite is well, I will keep on eating (well). Heh
Alhamdullilah, I havent experienced any nausea or vomitting so far. Oh no wait. Only that one day, on our 2nd anniversary 2 days ago. I was feeling so weak and restless and wanted to just lie down and do nothing. Husband had to force me to get up and get ready because we were going to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. I brought along 2 plastics just in case I need to vomit. But no! I survived and in fact, the moment we started on the buffet, all the restlessness was gone! haha maybe I was just hungry (which is impossible because I had rice for lunch). So anyway, we had a great time eating our hearts out at the buffet restaurant. When I totally didnt expect it, husband handed me an anniversary present. Sad because I didnt get him anything at all. We both promised not to get anything for each other this year.
I felt reallllly bad for not getting him anything. See my unhappy face.
Thank you husband. You *really* shouldnt have done that!
Kinda regret eating buffet that night because although I am eating a lot nowadays, I get full very easily. So it is not worth the amount of $ we spent on that dinner :p
After dinner, we went to visit Sharleez at the hospital. Poor thing ah she, suffering from her endless cough! But she is all well now at home. Going to see her tonight.
After kk, we went to watch Kumar at Hard Rock Cafe. I was already so tired at this time, but I didnt want to dissapoint the husband so we went ahead. Kumar was well, Kumar la. Hilarious as hell.
(ok, wait need to insert other pictures)
Look at me so tembam already. But I really don’t mind. :p
I now have a pair of heels in the car for times when I need to feel *pretty*. My mum will scream if she sees me going out wearing them. I cant even wear jeans without her high pitched voice whispering in my ear to change into something less tight. Heh.
ok, am randomly wondering how the public will react when I finally announce my pregnancy. It’s not a big deal to others, but it is to me. I am currently 7 weeks pregnant now, so announcement will be made in 5 weeks time on 24th March.
(am I totally neglecting my personal blog? Yes I am.)
Mummy and daddy went kite flying today. I saw many baies there and I thought to myself, “wouldnt it be more meanigful if you were there?” Pictures would be more interesting because we would be able to capture all the beautiful moments with you.
I cant remember when i had my last period baby, but I have a feeling I am late. I *might* be going out to buy a pregnancy test kit tomorrow to check if you are already in me. I really hope you are because if you are not, then all this weight I have put on is a waste. I have been eating so much and I can feel the weight piling up on my arms, butt and tummy. But of course, all of that will be worth it if I am already pregnant with you.
Here’s a photo of mummy and daddy taken yesterday at Marina Barrage.
