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!
Happy 16 weeks! I’ve reached my 4th month finally! Double yay to me because baby’s gender was confirmed last night.
And of course, without a doubt. It is a BOY! I am so happy to know that I am right and that I am carrying a son. During the ultrasound, Baby showed his penis so clearly (was it because daddy told you to open your legs wide? Tsk, you listen to daddy and not me!)
The first thing on my mind after his gender was confirmed was to shop for him. In fact, husband and I already planned to shop for some of his baby items this weekend. Woohoo! I can’t wait!
Next? I am looking forward to feel baby’s kicking. Gynae said that I would only be able to feel them in a month’s time. That seems like a long way to go, but time will pass by fast, just like my last 4 months :s
I am at my 15th week today. Which means in a week’s time, I will officially be 4 months pregnant. *gulps*
“Hi, ya I’m 4 months pregnant now”. That sounds so serious somehow. Husband gets scared whenever I remind him about baby’s weekly age. I told him earlier today that next week, baby’d turn 4 months. “Huh?! You are halfway done?! 5 more mths left?”. Yes 5 more months of single life and then we’re going to have a little one joining us. Yey!
At 15 weeks, my vomiting is *almost* gone and taste buster is slowly making its dissapearance too (so happy about this!). My appetite is still not so good though. I am very choosy with my food and smells still turn me off. Well, I can live with anything as long as taste buster is gone.
I would love to upload baby’s latest ultrasound scan but I am currently blogging through my phone because my laptop died on me last week. I will and I must update with that picture as soon as I can! Ultrasound picture is so clear. Baby looks so much bigger and I can see baby’s hands and legs already. His head is bigger than the rest of his body but I read up and it is normal. :p his limbs will grow tremendously during weeks 16-20.
My next check up will be to confirm on baby’s gender and that is on 19th april. Husband won’t be able to make it though ( no thanks to his school.
Every night now, I read 2 books to baby and sing nursery rhymes. And then I let baby listen to mozart while I sleep. I also recite al-fateha whenever I can. I hope you are listening little one!
Am getting sleepy now, its been a looong and tiring day. Going to do the necessary and go to bed. Goodnight!
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!
Happy 14 weeks! Time is passing by really fast, you are almost 4 months old now. at the gynae’s yesterday, we said hi to you and you kept waving your arms to us. So cute! But why didn’t you want to show us your gender? You placed both your feet on your groin so we couldn’t tell if that was your penis or your feet. both mummy and daddy were really curious to know if you are a boy or a girl so we were quite disappointed. at one point during the ultrasound, you jumped (cos I poked you) and you almost lifted your feet up. The gynae and I thought we saw something in between your thighs, but then it was only a split second and it is possibly your tali pusat.
Here’s an ultrasound taken yesterday
My very strong feeling that you are a boy is true after all! You are my baby boy! Hehe but I’ll wait another 2 weeks before I buy you your first set of clothes. I’ve been eyeing it and really want you to wear the same outfit as daddy. You will look really handsome.
Anyway, for now gynae said you are at a healthy size although mummy lost some weight. You are already 9cm long and from the looks of it, you can already respond to my touch! Too precious! I kept asking the gynae if there is enough space for you to move around in my tummy cos you look squashed. She said you are big, but I shouldn’t worry because there is plenty of space for you. So happy to hear her say that. Do move a lot ok? Because I’m going to feed you so much and soon you won’t have enough space!
Mummy’s going swimming today so enjoy yourself later ok!
