USG - 35 wks 5 days

Today I am 35 wks 5 days pregnant, 1st of March 2013. It is countdown time. Baby will come anytime.
Exciting too because less than 3 wks my mom will come here to help me and the baby, with another aunty.

I am having 36wks ultrasound to find out my 2 fibroids and the baby position. USG result is good. I am pretty satisfied and happy. My baby size is normal. He is 2,7kg at the moment even though I just gain 7,2kg. Not bad. I also doesnt want an oversize baby since it is gonna natural delivery. And I still ask the silly question to the doctor, Is my baby still a boy? She is laughing too.. Yes, he is still a boy. this is two ball and this is the penis.. Everybody say it it ok another boy, yeah it is ok.. but deep down here I am hoping a baby girl. Now I can understand my parent feeling when they have 4 girls and only one boy. :)
Another good result is my two fibroids. One of them is still the same size even the position move upward and another one even smaller size and both of them will not effect for the natural delivery process.
Baby position is great too. The baby head already move to below up side down. So, it is pretty much gonna be natural delivery. I hope everything gonna be smooth. I always pray that I will not suffer too long during the labour and God will give me the strenght and  help me going through the labour. I also wish that my mom and hubby will be beside me during the process. I need their support especially during each contraction.

I am much calmer than before. In the first semester pregnancy I am so worried about miscarriage since I had 8wks miscarriage two years ago but only found out in 11 wks pregnancy when I am about tell everyone that I was pregnant next week (new year 2012). But instead of spreading good news, I was having bad news on xmas day and have bleeding on boxing day. So during the first semester, I and hubby really take a good care of my pregnancy. I am having bed rest. My hubby took over all the domestic work. I become a queen of the house. I had 3 month morning sick. cant smell of cooking and cant cook at all. I rely a lot of take away food and indomie.

2nd semester, I am worried about the natural labour untill experienced a lot of nightmare about labour. I also experienced Carpal tunnel syndrome that attack both of my hands. We hurried up looking for sinshe to do accupunture and chinese medicine. My hubby also bought the hand rest to make it relief the pain. Lucky that within 3 days the pain is gone. I can lift my hand again. But I become more careful not to lift heavy thing or overuse my hand.

Now is 3rd semester. Everything is ok. Start the sleepless night. My right hip is pain due to baby position on right side pressing my muscle hip. Going to the loo every hour. But it is nothing than thinking it is less than a month I gonna meet my baby personally. Thank you God to trust us to have a second child. We will have a good care and love this baby and also treat it equally like his brother.

Have a good day!

Welcome to the blog again!

Just said to myself.. it will be nice to write on blog again, to remember what I am going through within my life. It is fun to read my sis' blog. It is so entertaining and also make me know her better since we live far away. Then I tried to log on and found out my old blog. It was from 2007 and it is a boring blog. :)

Still dunno what should I write here. Currently I am 34wks on my pregnancy. It is gonna be boy again.
So far I only gain 6,5 kg, compare with my first boy which was 8 kg before, it is not so bad.
2nd pregnancy this time is not easy too. Maybe because I am older now, so my body is not as fit as before.
I get tired so easy, experiencing carpal tunnel syndrome, 3 months morning sickness (4,5 mths on first child). This time I dont have severe back pain, but right hip pain due to baby position on the right side the press the right hip more.

Last time I cant sleep too. Woke up at 2 am, my neck, shoulder and hand was stiff and full tension. So, I do some meditation, relaxing and stretching before went back to sleep. Also wake up couple of times due to bladder. Very hard to get up from sleeping position to sit down and stand up esp because of the pressure on the right hip. Sometimes I walk limb.

Go back to sleep for couple hours and woke up again due to bladder again and nightmare. I dream I was hit by big thunderstorm that my body instantly become black ash witnesses by my young son and my dajie.
And I can hear my son screaming mama..... i want my mama..
Woke up and see my son sleeping on my side made me relief.. it just a dream. and just a dream.
To see him sleep soundly next to me, it is a bless.
Dont care with people said that he should sleep alone in his room.. But he always want to sleep with me in my room. Sometimes i feel missing if he is not sleeping with me.
Love you son...

Xmas mood in Melbourne

Two days ago, I acted as a tourist at Melbourne. I joined free shuttle bus around the city. My first stop is the Shrine of Remembrance. I visited there before in 1999 but felt it is nothing there until I heard a little bit about this place from one of the Tour Leader. So I decided that I have to visit this place again to know about the history and what they have.

I was just lucky. Once arrived there, there were some students group. So I just followed them, and we have a free guided tour. First at all, we watch to the big screen about what the Austrailan feel to WW I and WW II. Then we had a chance to follow the ray of light ceremony every 11 am at the sanctuary. Every 11 nov 11 am, there is a ray of light into the box from the left to the right passing some words there. The view from the balcony is spectacular. You can see the straight line all the way to Swanson Street.

After spending 3 hours there, I continue my journey by the bus. My second and last stop is Queen Victoria Market. I had to shop some vegetables and fruits for my lunch.

I have appointement with my hubby to meet at Rod Laver Arena to watch junior qualification for Australia Open 2008. But I felt hungry so I bought the famous "Lord of the Fries" a french fries which you can choose the additional sauce. I tried indian sauce before. not bad. But this time I tried thai sauce which is satay peanut sauce.. not so good to be eaten with french fries. Then I took the tram to Rod Laver. It was very crowded. I have to stand holding my french fries. Many people look at me because of the aroma of french fries went all over the tram.When I stepped out from the tram, I just realised that actually I was in the same tram with my hubby. He was standing in the front side and I was at the middle side. The competition was very exciting to see the young talent tried their best to be compete at junior Aussie Open.

We wathced two matched than we headed home. Oh.. I still hungry... So I cook the korean ramen with my style.. yummy..

My first Blog here

This is my first blog here. I just sign-up today, inspired by my sis, Rima....
This morning I start my first jogging at Flagstaff Garden, 5 mins walk from my spencer studio.
The sun is sunny but the wind is so cold.. I wear a wrong costum, a short pants and just a t-shirt. 2 minutes outside, I felt want to go back to my home and jogging at treadmil. But, I made up my mind that I should have more morning sun through my skin, Vit E right? So I tried to ignore the cool wind and started to jog.
Wow... there are lots of flowers at the garden. They are so beautiful.. white, pink, red, yellow.. wow... I absorbed the sunshine though my skin, smell the flowers, and refresh my view. Then I headed home, straight away went to gym, to continue my jogging there. And I exceeded my target today.
Today I am chatting the whole day, with some new..but "old friends".. Suddently they said hi to me. One is Chandra, ex collegemate at APT'93, then Pricilla and Anne from Smailing tour, Karen my ex housemate at singapore and Agun my best mate. So I quite pre occupied today.
Now, I am waiting for my hubby to come home..
