*Of reaching the 20-weeks mark…*

By Freek at 12:01 am on Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Praises be to Him for letting me and Baby A2 reach this far.

I’ve been anticipating the 5th month mark since that’ll be the time for the screening. I even had nightmares about missing the appointment. In one nightmare, I was late for the appointment and they said I had to wait a few weeks more. And for another, I forgot all about it. Ish!

But thankfully, I made it and yes, I was definitely pleased to see the lil’ life in me. Getting to see the various organs as they should be and the various?vessels and blood flow and the heart pumping well, really made my day. It also made me thank God for this miracle cos’ seeing a developed spine, kidneys and stuff, from just a tiny blob of blood just months before, it’s just, mindblowing.

The lil’ one wasn’t exactly pleased cos the sono-lady pressed on my tummy a weeny bit too hard. I could see Baby A2 squirming inside a few times. I think at that time, Baby A2 must have been sleeping or resting or something. Yes, like I said, I’ve felt Baby A2 move since our 4th month and now, I can already see my tummy moving a bit when he/she bumps or kicks me. Like, right now, he/she is actively moving around. And the lil’ nudges on the tummy makes me smile everytime.

Oh, yes, yes. Look at the hand on this one. A Muhammad.Ali move. Heh.

And look at that thigh. *lol* Could be another juicy drumstick like the Kakak Aaliya. I laughed when the sono-lady put the scanner thingy on my tummy. Cos’ the first thing I saw was that round thing on Baby A2’s chest and it looked like he/she was blowing a bubble. The sono-lady told me to stop laughing. Hehe. It’s Baby A2’s left fist it seems. *lol*

So, yeaps. I’m glad that Baby A2’s doing well. My gynae told me though, that this one’s prolly?gonna be another big baby since the report indicated a medium-big size fetus. I told her, then she’ll have to cut me again then. She said that remains to seen. When the time gets nearer then we can decide.

I mean, I don’t mind that Baby A2’s gonna be another big one. I mean, as long as he/she is healthy, for me, being cut open is no big deal. If fate has it that I’m meant to deliver babies via caesar and never get to experience normal delivery, so be it. As long as my babies get into this world alive and well, I’m more than contented.

Besides, it’ll be another pair of chubby cheeks for me to bite into. Heh.

As for gender…………… we couldn’t really get a confirmation on that one.

Like my gynae said, that’s the least important of all. What’s important is all the other vitals look good.

So, you guys just have to wait till he/she finally pops out from the oven. Heh…

Alritey, time to go to bed. Hopefully Aaliya sleeps better tonight. She’s starting to have flu and didn’t sleep well last night. Nitez peeps.

*Life thus far in a flash…*

  • Finally got my wedding ring resized and one of the missing diamonds replaced. Cost me 100bux. The ring looks new now. Am in love with it all over again.
  • I really have no more time for Facebook games these days. Sigh. But must make it a point to practice on the Guitar Hero when I get back after school. My fingers are getting stiff!
  • Things in school are starting to settle. I’m a bit uneasy about my marking load though. 5 levels of CME means about 130 odd CME books to mark a week aside from my 50 essays and workbooks, exercise books and worksheets to be marked. Hopefully, I get a bit of leeway for that CME marking part.
  • 1 more week till Baby A2 reaches 5months.?Will be meeting the gynae next Monday for 5th month screening. Hurrah!
  • Found?the Guess bag Dy and I saw back during KL trip, in Isetan Tamp. Damn! Naturally, he didn’t let me buy since he already stipulated “No more bags for 4 years” when I bought the Burberry wallet. Bleargh!
  • Tween-O bought some cute stuff from Korea for Aaliya. Thanks!!
  • Can’t wait for quick JB trip this coming Sat.
  • We finally watched Avatar 3D! *lol* Maybe one of the last few people to go, but the cinema was still full house when we went. The show was really good. I guess 4 years of making with almost 1/2 a billion spent, was worth it.
  • Some pupils are already asking me about my bump. “Cikgu, are you pregnant?” “Nolah, I just happen to have swallowed a balloon.”
  • Had a surprise when a simple matter got blown out of proportion. Really pissed (and is still) pissing me off. Sometimes, people just don’t like how I rationalise things, eventhough they know how true it is.
  • I have to make a distinction between my normal voice and teacherly voice. Apparently, I don’t realise I use the teacherly voice outside of class. Some people don’t like it. My apologies, I shall try to?remember to switch to the right voice mode when conversing outside the classroom.
  • This is Aaliya’s new pendant:

And on that note, till we meet again, peepz.

*At 17 weeks…*

By Freek at 10:38 pm on Monday, January 4, 2010

A visit to the gynae always relieves my anxiety on how the lil’ one is doing. Contrary to what my colleagues were commenting, I DID gain weight. I was puzzled why they said otherwise although I myeself KNOW & FEEL that I’ve gained.

But more importantly, Baby A2’s doing well for the moment. At 11cm now, he/she is growing just right for his/her number of weeks.

height

And it is true that second time mothers?get to feel the baby’s movement faster? than in the first. I can feel him/her bump lightly agaisnt my tummy every now and then as he/she floats in there. Anyways, as gynae moved around for a better look, Baby A2’s left hand was up by the cheek area.

hand

And moving in closer, the full front of him/her. It made me really excited to see him/her. Dy was there, too. And Kakak Aaliya as well. Heh.

pose

As for gender, I’m hoping to see that by the end of the month for my 5th month screening. Whatever the gender is, doesn’t matter to me at all. I’m just excited to know.

Won’t be revealed though. Heh.

But mostly for me, I’m more excited to know that his/her development is going on fine.

Aight, gotta catch early rest for work tomorrow.

Cya.

*My indulgence and the 2 trips….*

By Freek at 1:35 pm on Saturday, January 2, 2010

Before I embark on sharing the pics for our trip to K.L@M’sia and Belakang Padang@Batam, here’s what I decided to treat myself with.

My last few pieces of indulgence for 2009, besides the Wii + World Tour set + games and the holiday trips.

As most people know, I have never been a shoe or bag girl like most girls are. So, this really was a treat to myself. I must say, I was really at a lost on what to buy since I’ve never bought any branded bags or anything branded, for that matter,? though I’ve bought for my mothers.

I’ve NEVER bought any bag that costed more than 40bux for myself! Except for that Nike bag which costed me $70+ back in J.C.

I actually loved a particular bag chosen by Dy when we were at Guess@Mid-Valley, but only the display set was left, so I didn’t get it.

We decided to postpone our buy till we reached Singapore.

And, so it was the first time Dy & I went to Takashimaya & Paragon to shop for anything.

Heh. Now, to wait another 4 more years! *lol*

And as for the pictures for the trips, I’ve put them on my multiply cos’ it’ll be a bit too many to put in this space. Click here.
