The beginning of aches.

Bean currently weighs 700g while I’ve conveniently put on about 7kg. You can’t tell where that 7kg went to and I can’t tell you how much I’m aching all over, especially my feet. Just standing a mere 15 mins or waiting for a 6 mins train to arrive is almost taking my life. That doesn’t work well that I have close to zero patience. I haven’t had the luxury of time to blog about any updates for the last two […]

My shaped up tummy.

On some mornings, bean makes the day by planting a wide smile in my face. She really didn’t have to do much. All she did was to ‘curl’ up in my tummy. Maybe it’s me who indirectly forced her to curl like that by sleeping on my sides and rotating every few hours (now you can guess how little sleep I get daily). But when I wake and see that my tummy has become so….compact. I really have to give […]

Naming Bean.

These past few weeks we have been trying to decide on a name for bean, both English and Chinese. You may assume that the English name was the easy part but no, apparently we have kind of settled for a chinese name but the english one was quite meh. Initially we have got one in mind…just that very special only name that we both liked. But I’m having second thoughts because of the last name that goes along with it […]

Halfway mark.

I’m currently into my 5th month, that only meant another few more months to go. How time flies when you’re busy working. That said, I haven’t been actively piling up those baby knowledge and making up my mind for confinement stuff either. Too busy. Le sigh. My feet have also started to feel the weight pile even though bean is only about 400grams. . Maybe the rest of the weight came from my own weight gain? 😛 Either way I […]

Its a good food day!

My dearest cousin must have heard bean’s calling. She didn’t forget about our date and she wasn’t late (this time it’s me instead). And well..bean’s calling was good food. Good food in my opinion, is not just about expensive food. It’s about the person I’m eating with. We could be eating at the shabbiest joint anywhere but the companion matters. Like I was telling my cousin that I would rather eat alone than having to ‘entertain’ an eating partner that […]

Hunger management.

Bean cannot stand being hungry. It’s like she’s accustomed to eating at all times, snacks or not, and sometimes I think that my temporary add on salary is not gonna be enough to cover the food expenses we’re both chalking up! Sometimes I wake at 4am and secretly munch on those biscuits beside my sleeping husband so as not to wake him up. Come to think about it, I probably could have eaten in the living room as loudly as […]

Something amusing.

I have this app installed on my phone..ok fine, android phone. It’s a baby app and it tracks the progress of bean on a weekly basis. On the very day that bean turned 4 months old, the app updated itself and told me that bean was the size of a bell pepper. Not kidding. They always use food items to describe the size. I remembered seeing tomato once. Not trusting that a bell pepper measures 10cm, I googled. Well…I proved […]

Ahhh-Choo!

That’s the tone to sneezing just in case you didn’t realize. Haha! I have been sneezing non stop since the day I was preg. It’s by no way any sort of coincidence. I was already very allergic to dust, but I believe I was even more so into pregnancy. The sneeze is like a non-stop remix on days…and for the rest of the days, my nose is just really dsturbed by itches from dust. To make matters worse, I sometimes […]
