I feel stoned today. -_-

Tucked myself in at 10.30pm yesterday and I believe I slumbered immediately. But still I feel so ripped of sleep. I think waking up crying in the middle of the night didn’t help either. Dreamt of somebody close dying. I woke up at 2.14am, started to weep uncontrollably till I woke Dy up and he hushed me to sleep. They say if we dream of a person dying, the person won’t be anytime soon. I hope it’s true. Sigh.

Anyhoos, our very early morning routine, of course, is taking quite a toll on me. Like this morning, I had to rush out body waste else Dy would be late for work. Which, of course, is a bad idea. Thus far, I haven’t had a problem passing motion. But this morning, it was difficult and there was this nagging worry that Baby A might just pop out if I heaved any harder. I hate feeling constipated. But, yeah, the thought that I may?have only about a weeny bit over 5 weeks before I finally succumb to giving birth, bothers me a little considering there is still so much to cover. In school, I mean. Exams being around the corner and everything.

As for preparation for Baby A, in the span of March, I believe I’ve prepared the necessities.?My dad has plastic wrapped the cot so that it doesn’t get dusty. And oh, the made-to-order mattress he got for Baby A looks and feels real cosy. Sorta look like one of the “Princess and the pea” mattress. Untung anak aku tidur tilam best.

I’ve also organised Baby A’s tiny chest of drawers. I need to label them, though. The drawer where I put baby clothes isn’t full yet. *hint*hint* *LOL*

All I need now is to pack the black bag my dad bought for me?with stuff I might need?when I?get warded. I’ve already told Dy that that’s the bag he needs to grab should the time comes.?Oh, time’s going by so fast.

And for those who might want to have some light reading, here’s an estimation of what is Baby A’s growth like by this coming Monday when it touches the 8th month mark. Estimation may or may not be true. I’ll know for sure in about 12 days time when I meet my gynae again.

At Thirty-two weeks(from pregnancy.org)

  • Your baby is up to 3.75 pounds (1702gm) now and is 16.7 inches (42.4cm) long.
  • You might notice he/she’s not moving around as much now. Don’t worry! He/she is fine — just running short on room. He/she still has plenty of growing to do though, believe it or not!
  • All five senses are working. Your little one is fascinated and practicing testing these out as much as possible!
  • Toenails are completely formed even though he/she may not be quite ready for a French manicure.
  • Hair on your infant’s head continues to grow in.?
  • Brain scans have shown that babies have periods of dream sleep (REM) starting around the eight month. What do you suppose your son/daughter is dreaming about?

And let’s just say, that I now walk like “Happy Feet”.
