Pregnancy, Second Trimester

18 weeks update

So i met Baby again yesterday! The last time i met baby on screen was 6 weeks ago and in pregnancy time, 6 weeks is very long. Lol.

So happy to see baby! It was yawning / had it’s mouth open wide when it first appeared on screen and i can’t help thinking “anak bapak!!” because ever since the pregnancy, i love seeing Rusly get into deep sleep and he always have his mouth open. Lol

Baby was also wiggling it’s fingers and it’s very obvious on screen.

I also managed to know the gender! Gynae was pretty sure of the gender cos Baby had it’s legs wideeeee open for us to see. But Gynae told me we’ll confirm it during the detailed scan in 3 weeks time. So i would probably announce it later when it’s confirmed!

Mummy is putting on weight, like finally! Although i really do think it’s the Raya “Be Merry and Eat Cookies All Day Long” kind of weight but oh well, as long as baby is growing well!

Appetite is slightly better and i’m craving for foods now. Pretty hilarious but that’s another story for another time!

I have yet to feel baby kicks but i have been feeling weird things happening inside. Like bubbles and butterflies just at my navel area. Gynae told me it’s the baby’s movement and soon i should be able to feel it’s kicks as soon as it gets stronger. I just hope i know it’s baby kicking and not cramps or something.

Pregnancy, Second Trimester

bump-ed!

After many many conversations & discussions, we’ve finally decided to just go ahead to The Women’s Clinic  instead of going Clinic G with the EMMa Care. I’ve seeked so many opinions and many said the midwives at NUH are pleasant during labour so i’m gonna take it at face value and just believe it will just be alright. But i think the main reason for me to do the switch was because of a somewhat unpleasant trip to Clinic G at my last appointment. I guess it’s just me having a bad day that day cos everything went horribly wrong.

For Clinic G, most of the appointments are scheduled way early in the morning. So the previous appointment was scheduled at 9.45am. I don’t have trouble waking up. I’ll be zombified yes, but i CAN wake up in the morning. What i can’t seem to do in the morning is, to successfully get a cab. At 8.45am i was already calling for cabs, to no avail. At 9.00am, i gave up, i went downstairs hoping i could catch a passing cab. I was trying to get hold of the cab close to 10.00am before i managed to finally get one through the EasyTaxi App. 1 hour in the hot sun, with no breakfast, I felt faint. Reached NUH at 10.20am and i was prepared to wait very long because i missed my appointment by 30mins. So i asked the counter lady, roughly how long till my turn because i would like to get some breakfast. But she told me there’s only 1 patient before me. So not wanting to miss my turn, i wait. I was finally called in at 11.00am. 1 patient before me and i have to wait 40mins? Nampak sangat bedek.

The Raya Announcement

Eid Mubarak!

On this special day, the husband and i’ve decided (at the very last minute) to just go ahead and announce our pregnancy on social media.

To be honest, we only decided to announce because we have friends and family who have been leaving baby-related comments on our social media posts and it’s pretty obvious already. LOL
and also because i’ll need to announce to The Card Maison future clients soon because i’ll have to close orders for April & May weddings soon as i’ll be on Maternity leave in from late December to February.

So yes, we are finally pregnant! Yaaaaaayyyy!

With that, i have also un-privatised my posts on the The IVF Journey and The Pregnancy.

I first announced my pregnancy a few days after our positive blood test here. So you can now read how excited i was upon finding out.

I’ll be 4 months pregnant tomorrow . Almost halfway through the pregnancy. So fast!
