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!
Can’t believe you’ve been living in me for 25 weeks now. You’ve grown from a small tiny bean to a kicking machine in these 25 weeks! Kicking and moving around in mummy’s tummy throughout the day is what you do best now at this stage and mummy’s loving every minute of it. Sometime I laugh when you kick me real hard because I imagine you are trying to tell me something. Like maybe you don’t like what I’m watching or eating. I find myself talking to myself a lot nowadays because I always have questions to ask you. Up till today, all our talking sessions are done either when daddy is not at home or when he is already sleeping because you know why? He tends to laugh at me whenever I talk to you. Tsk tsk.
I think you are growing tremendously now and that is good! Although when I checked my weight earlier today, I am 60kg. No difference from the last time I weighed myself. I guess we will find out your weight this thursday when I see the gynae. As usual, I am so excited to see you again! Its been more than a month and I wonder how big you are now. Well, as long as you are healthy, nothing else matters.
I’ve been peeing A LOT nowadays, especially at night. Maybe its because I drank a lot of warm water before I go to bed everynight. You are very active at 3-4am everynight and you tend to kick me real hard at those times. That’s when I use the toilet the most! Moving around in bed is also not easy for me now. I have to roll myself out of bed because tummy’s too heavy and I can’t lift myself up anymore. Daddy said I look like a hippo whenever I roll myself out of bed.
Daddy and I will be going for a short trip to jakarta this sunday. We need a holiday before I give birth to you and I want pictures of you in my tummy as memory.
25 weeks baby. We are reaching the finishing line soon, and insyallah everything is going to be ok.
I have been feeling a little under the weather lately, although fever is mild and still under control, I am finding it hard to do a lot of things because I am also pregnant. Before, even fever can’t make me stay in bed all day. I would still have the energy to move around and do whatever I want to do. Right now I feel so helpless.
I realise that food is so important for me now. Every morning when I wake up, the first thing I do is find food for me to eat because if I don’t, I will get breathless and start to shiver. I am not talking about having bread and milo here by the way. It’s REAL food, like rice or noodles! In the early morning, YES! I MUST have a proper meal before starting my day.
Other than that, I also can’t eat too much. Sometimes I get frustrated at myself for not thinking when I eat. I loooove food and when eating something I really like, I eat fast and tend to finish everything on the plate not realising that I would later get heartburn and suffer for a good hour or so. So basically, I am not doing anything right at the moment, I either eat too little or too much. I need to constantly remind myself to eat moderately but frequently to avoid any unnecessary pain and inconvenience.
Before I got pregnant, if you know me well enough you would know that I am someone who likes to do things my way and I like to be in control of everything. Now that I am 6 months pregnant, I feel like I am depending so much on others and causing a lot of inconvenience to them. For example, when I had my massage session last month, my masseuse told me that my baby is sitting way too low when it should have been higher. She said “you’ve been carrying heavy things right? And you’ve been walking too fast”. I don’t deny it. I have been doing that because I honestly didn’t think it would affect baby at all. “I am going to push your baby up now” she then said. OUCH, I am telling you. It hurts when she does that, especially when she had to do it several times. Baby refused to stay up she said. My boy is a feisty one, nek. After that session, i have been warned and scolded by husband and both sides of our family NOT to carry anything heavy anymore and that’s when I started to feel like I am so useless. Boohoohoo. No one lets me carry anything anymore nowadays and imagine if there are lots of things to carry (especially Studiofrost stuff) and because I can’t carry, others have to make 2 trips? GUILTY nak mampos ok.
Ok, enough about me being a handicap.
Earlier today, husband and I went out for a movie night organised by the police force to watch Karate Kid/Toy Story 3. We chose Karate Kid because we heard so much hype about it and err we don’t fancy cartoons.
At the event, a little boy maybe 8 or 9 years old came up to me and tapped my stomach and asked, “basketball ah?”. His father told him off for tapping my stomach but little boy brushed his father off and bent down to check if I was indeed hiding a ball in my dress. “take out ah” he said. HAHAHA. Ridiculously funny, especially if you see how BIG that boy is. He is VERY healthy and chubby. SO BLOODY CUTE.
Maybe what I wore today was a little too tight and my tummy looks bigger than it actually is. *shrugs*
2 pictures for this pathetic update because I am sooooo sleepy and I have to be up early to send out Studiofrost orders tomorrow (with Diah who will have to carry EVERYTHING by herself again)
Hello and welcome to my new blog!
First of all, a BIG FAT THANK YOU to Sharizan for the pictures used on this blog. Second of all, if you want to leave a comment, please be nice. Heh.
*peace no war*
Come and congratulate me please. I have reached my 6th month today! It is the beginning of my 3rd trimester, alhamdullilah.
Goodbye 2nd trimester, you will definitely be missed. Maybe I will see you again a year or 2. Heh of course i’m kidding la.
Here’s a picture taken on 5th June
What am I expecting in my 3rd trimester? I’ve read about backaches and sleepless nights and water retention and a whole lot of other negativity about this last stage of pregnancy and I’ve got 1 word to say ‘CIALAT’. Not sure if I am ready for all of that. And labour. O-o
So anyway, let’s move on to more exciting stuff like shopping for baby! Yup, I have finally started my shopping but none of the items I ordered have arrived so far. Diah on the other hand is getting excited for this little nephew of hers and she is already shopping for my son! It is not any different from shopping for her girls because lucky her, baby girls can wear baby boys clothes, but baby boy? Imagine boys wearing pink rompers? Boohoohoo. She even got matching outfits for my son and her daughters. Hahaha ridiculously CUTE!
Thank you Mama Dee, from the bottom of little Kacang putih’s/Bella’s heart.
I have decided to merge my blog and baby’s blog into this one domain and say bye bye to fallagain.pitas.com for good. After serving me for 8 years, it is time to move on and furthermore, I don’t think I can handle updating 2 blogs every now and then. I barely even update my fallagain so there’s no point in keeping it. All of my entries will still be there (i can’t move them here!) but I will not be updating anymore. All updates will be posted here from now on. Oh and as you can see, I have a comments page. Not sure how long that page will be here for though, I guess it depends on what kind of comments I will be getting from readers. Readers can be mean sometimes you know? I might remove it if it gets out of hand. Wish me luck on that. :p
Please don’t judge me from my previous 41 entries. I blogged whenever I can and want and didn’t bother checking on all my entries. Heh. It has been fun blogging secretly but I want to share the joy of having a little one growing in me with everyone so happy reading!
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!
it’s the beginning of June and I turned 22 weeks pregnant as of yesterday. Nothing changed since last week, except baby’s kicks are more obvious now and he is kicking a storm in my tummy which i love so much. He is very active at night when I want to sleep and will start kicking and moving by 6am everyday. Nope, I am nt complaining! In fact, everytime he is moving or kicking, I would play with him, talk to him and sometimes put husband’s hands on my tummy. I remember the first time husband felt baby’s kicks. He was so amazed and kept pressing my tummy because he wants baby to make bigger movements. Haha. But baby’s kicks are usually more intense whenever husband places his hands on my tummy. He said baby is probably saying, “Get away!!!!!!” *DOOOSH!* :p Kick and punch away baby, im loving it and I know i will miss this once you are out from my tummy.
I am seriously worried about not getting to eat as much after I give birth. Been thinking about it for 2 days now. lol I enjoy eating and so far, most of the weight I put on are going to baby, so that simply means that I am eating but not putting on much weight on my body! It sucks that once baby is out, I will have to go back to eating only what I need and not what I want. (wooo baby is kicking non stop at this moment). I know la, i’m being a greedy pig. I shall enjoy this moment while it lasts then.
Husband and I are planning to buy baby’s stroller soon because it is the GSS now and they are giving great discounts. But we are still deciding between Peg Preo and Maxi Cosi. Both are equally good, except I kind of prefer Maxi Cosi. Haha husband said he likes Peg Prego’s look. I am looking more into convenience because I know I will be with baby most of the time and I will have to handle the stroller all by myself so it has to be easy for me. The price for both strollers is about the same, probably $50-$60 lesser for Maxi Cosi. I am torn between those 2!
We havent gone shopping for baby’s other necessary items yet, although I know we already have to. I am now 5 1/2 months pregnant but somehow feels like I have to wait a little bit longer before going out to buy his clothes, bottles and all the creams and oils. Lol i dont even know what they are called. :-/
Anyway, took a picture of my tummy on 28th May when we went out.
As my tummy grows and the months go by, I am getting slightly nervous about baby seeing the world. I dont know if I will make a good mummy. What if I am one of those parent who cant stand baby’s cries and will scream at him whenever he cries? What if baby loves to scream at the top of his lungs in public and I am there all alone to handle him? What if baby refuse to latch on and I cant breastfeed him? Will I give up? I mean, for now of course I would say I will never give up, but when the time comes and the presure is on, will I be able to take it? Not sure if other mummies face this too, but I am afraid of this huge responsibility. Afraid I am unable to provide him with the best. Sigh. Maybe I am being a freak and shouldnt worry too much about it and take it as it goes. I dont know.
Suddenly so emo now. Bye
