In the blink of an eye.

So the grand date for bean is finally selected. I do not have months left to anticipate the arrival of the little one, it’s down to days. I’m excited and scared at the same time… As the husband puts it, my being is ‘one in a million’ cause I cry too easily and often over silly things. This time it’s not over silly things but perhaps I’m scaring myself a little too much @@ I have opted for caesarean over […]

35 Weeks.

No Joke. I’m going to give birth in another month’s time. Yes, I’m still having the jitters. It’s hard not to isn’t it? No matter how much I welcome the little one, it’s still hard to brush away the fear within me. I’m not worried about not being a good mum etc, everyone learns along the way. I’m just purely scared of the birthing process. Don’t judge me cause I’m being so honest about how I really feel. My wonder […]

Ahoy! Maternity Leave

  I have been officially on Maternity Leave since Monday. It is way ahead of time to take it so soon but I’m getting really tired at work and the husband has been asking me to go for it early, so there it is, a whopping one month plus ahead of delivery. In Singapore, the maternity leave is 16 weeks and you may actually choose to give 1 week out of your 16 weeks to your husband so that he […]

I’m lying to you..

If I say I’m all prep and ready to birth. Who is?!! I’m actually embracing my fear, a little too much in fact. On one of the nights last last week, I have suddenly confessed to the husband that I am worried and scared of childbirth. I have been hiding my fear with pretty toddler apparel purchases and the thought of bean directly in my arms that I have been skipping the gory glory parts of it – the process […]

Punching and Kicking.

I’m not complaining. Your kicks are mighty and forceful and keeps me awake almost everyday but I’m thankful that with these ‘indicators’, I know you’re having the time of your life…even at 32 weeks! [youtube=http://youtu.be/BWvmPEioBXI] It’s rather hard to capture bean’s movement via video. Been trying every now and then but was unsuccessful. It seems that she knows when I’m filming her! This time round I played mind tricks on her (and myself) by pretending I’m not filming her. Funny […]

The new roadmaps on my chest.

Remember the last time I said something about varicose veins? Recently the additional weight is taking a toll on my legs and i can feel it. Periodically I would always turn to check on that one super obvious purplish vein that has a life of its own. Okay let’s not jinx it. I’ll just say that my legs are super fair and that’s not helping either! So last night when I was about to take a shower (not saying anything […]

Sleepless night is only the beginning.

Last night’s insomnia was really bad. Coupled with the scissors kicks from Bruce Lee wannabe in my tummy, I believed I slept closed to 5am with an hourly interval trip to the washroom. I knew I had to take time off today from work but with the 5 days off I’ve had last week, I’ve requested to work from home instead. Closing to EDD I could actually feel that my organs are being squashed. I get shortages of breath easily […]

Third trimester, here we go!

So two days back we went to our gynae for the follow up and the checkup went well. Bean currently weighs 1.1kg out of the 9kg weight gained on me. Most people who learnt that I’m actually 6 months pregnant were shock to see what small bump I have. But in fact, 1.1kg is a healthy weight for the little one at this stage. The growth spurt from hereon will bring us to a healthy 2-3kg, the best ideal weight […]
