Loving pregnancy right at this moment. Tummy is in good shape, appetite is great, skin is behaving and my hair is black and thick and fluffy. What more can I ask for? Nowadays, I don’t even need foundation! Just loose powder is enough to keep my skin clear for the entire day. I wish it would stay this way! But sadly, I will only have another 2 months to enjoy this. Was told that by the 3rd trimester, everything will go back to normal. Noooooo!!!! I don’t want normal!
My tummy is so round now, I love it. I can wear anything at all and get away with it. nope, am not fat. I am pregnant. Hehe a few pple commented saying that I look better pregnant. Maybe its because of the weight I’ve put on. I think I look fresher with a little bit of weight, I don’t know. But the husband said I look better pregnant. Of course I reminded him that it’ll all be gone in 2 mths. Lol sorry la!
A picture of my tummy I took on 19th May. BAD picture quality, I know.
i’ve grown bigger, yey!
Baby is not kicking as much since the past weeks, I hope everything’s ok in there. I know he is in there though because I feel pain everywhere on my lower abdominal every day. Sometimes he’s on the left and sometimes on the right. He’s probably lodged in between my ribcage cos it hurts there all the time. Sometimes, I know he moved to another side of my tummy because all of a sudden the other side won’t be as hard as it was. Enjoying yourself in there, little one? Enjoy it while it last! Soon, you won’t have much space to move abt.
Here’s the ultrasound taken from my detailed scan on 20th May. Can finally see baby’s features!
Getting reallllly sleepy now. Till my next update. Nite!
5 months! As per the counter on this blog, baby is already 10 inches long. my, that is long. i can cradle baby with my 2 hands now? best nye.
i cant stop wondering how baby is doing in my tummy. it feels like my last check up with the gynae was just too long ago. I cant wait to see her again tomorrow and to find out how baby is doing. How is his position, how much weight he has gained and if he is growing healthily. I know for sure that baby’s position is not right. the last time Dr Venga did an ultrasound, baby was on standing on the left. Recently, i’ve been feeling slight pain on my right, so maybe he moved to the right side of my tummy. Hello there! *taps on tummy*
I havent been feeling him moving off late. I’ve done everything, like reading, singing and asking husband to talk to baby. Nothing. My mum said its normal and maybe because I am only at my 5th month, i might not be able to feel his kicks as much because he is still small. ok then. I hope he will kick me, strong and hard!
My tummy. No doubt about it now, one look at me and everyone knows that I am pregnant. Haha yes, I am so happy about that. I am honestly loving this part of pregnancy. I dont feel fat, i look pregnant, but not too big and i can get away with wearing ANYTHING at all. Heck, some of the clothes I wear now are clothes i WILL NEVER wear when im not pregnant. Somehow, some clothes looks better on me with this tummy. Oh and alhamdullilah, my tummy is clean (well, for now). No stretch marks. Yet. So while it is still clean and my body still looks human enough, husband insisted to take some shots of me and tummy. Here’s one.
Love this picture by the way!
Anyway, our house is *almost* settled, insyallah. We’ve found our home at block 216 and although nothing is confirmed yet, I can already imagine us (as in husb, baby and me) staying there. According to our agent, we will be moving in January, which is perfect because baby would be 3 months by then and it would be easier to settle down when baby is already 3 months old. Tonight I will be meeting the house owner and most probably offer him my price. I just hope and pray that a ‘malay’ can buy that flat. HDB is being all weird about the race of the people occupying the 200 series. *fingers crossed*
ok, update on baby, done! I still owe this blog an ultrasound picture of baby. next time next time!
GUILT is all I’m feeling right now. I (again) almost forgot to update on baby’s progress. Was just about to take a nap and sing to baby when I realize that I haven’t updated on my 19 weeks. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?! Urgh.
So at 19 weeks, my tummy is growing tremendously. I look like I’m already at my 6 mth. And I was able to feel baby’s subtle kicks. WAS because well, until 2 days ago. I was always so sure when I felt a kick frm baby and everyday I would feel it at least once. 2 days ago, when I thought I felt a kick, I stopped and pressed my tummy and then I felt pressure on my left abdomen. So it probably wasn’t a kick. It felt more like something is stretching. And so I waited for baby to kick. He didn’t.
I started to worry when my lower abdominal started to hurt slightly more than usual when I try to sleep at night. And like any curious mother to be, I googled. What I read from the internet scared the kukubaras out of me. It said that a miscarriage that occurs during the 4th month are usually painless with little bleeding. Mostly, mothers will feel pain on the lower abdominal area, because baby no longer has a heartbeat. Wah, I was so scared. Immediately I wanted to go to the clinic to check. All I need was to check on baby’s heartbeat, to make sure its still there.
I was very lucky cik ara helped me get a clinic that provides the services I need. So I made an appointment and went to see Dr Venga at tampines. He wasn’t a very pleasant man, by the way. :p
But doesn’t matter as long as I can check on my baby. At first, he placed a microphone on my tummy and almost immediately, in less than 2 seconds, I hear loud tumping of baby’s heartbeat. What a relief! His heart is pumping so fast. When I saw the ultrasound machine, I couldn’t resist it so I asked him to do a chk for me. On the screen, I saw baby sucking his thumb and STANDING on the left side of my tummy, with his legs crossed. Lol! So cute.I guess he was sleeping cos he refused to move from that position. No wonder the left side of my tummy hurts and its always so hard compared to my right.
So there. I worried for nothing, but its worth the $85. To know that baby is doing well makes me feel a whole lot better.
I need to rest now because my body’s so tired still, from yesterday’s shoot.
Baby turns 18 weeks yesterday and I almost forgot to update this blog. Twitter reminded me, sorry baby.
I still owe this blog an ultrasound picture of baby’s gender. so many things I can’t do without having my own laptop, its frustrating. Lucky enough that I can update wordpress using my blackberry, or else there won’t be updates and nooo… I don’t want that.
Anyway, at 18 weeks, I am well and baby has started kicking! Although it felt more like my stomach growling at first it got more intense the past few days. It felt like a tiny push or a fingers running through my tummy. Ow, so cute. But funny thing is, baby only kick when I am either feeling down or when I’m doing something vigorous. I guess he doesn’t want to ‘spoil’ it when I’m happy. But your kicks are making me happy, baby! I want more.
Excited for the detailed scan on 19th may, where I’d get to see baby again. I want to know if baby is growing healthily and if it is at a good weight. My tummy seems to be growing so fast lately, I look like I am already 7 months pregnant! It scares me a little. What if baby is too big? Or would it be better for baby to be big than to be small? I don’t want to have to induce labour because he is growing too big. I want him to come out whenever he is ready. I guess I’ll find out during the next check up.
Tummy is still small with a little bump (pic taken on 26th May)
I don;t look pregnant. Soon, I hope.
Anyway, I still don’t think that I am doing enough for baby. Last week was crazy and I’m glad its over. This week I promised baby I would spend as much time as I can talking and reading to him. Well, I hate empty promises and so I tried to deliver it as much as I can. Past few days wasn’t easy, but I forced myself to talk to baby and explain to him my daily situation. I hope he understands.
Ok, I need to iron sf’s clothes now. Till my next update.
