Book for baby?

Can this come at any other better time than now??????????????
Well, just to get me on the mood...I've decided to finally purchase this book......after I've changed my mind several times seeing it in the bookstores because of the price tag! Well, MPH was having a Members Day yesterday and it was as if it's a calling telling me that it's finally the right time for me to start reading this book now that I'm expecting myself....simply because - it's 25% off the usual price for members! I just had to get it the minute I saw the discount offered! I saved a total of RM17.48...guess all those wait has finally paid off!

I've never missed any of Sophie Kinsella's book so it's just a matter of time for me to get this book the minute it first hit the store several months back. Being a cheapskate when it comes to the price of books, I just couldnt bring myself to pay RM69.90 for a freaking shopaholic book! So I was telling myself to be patient and wait for its paperback version to be released (God knows when though...) so that the price would be reduced. Looks like it's never gonna happen anytime soon and I still believe it's a sign for me to finally get it (non-paperback) when it was put up for a whopping 25% discount!

Now will you please excuse me now...I've got an important book to read now......muahahahahahahahahahahaha~


I've been burping like a frog for the past weeks!! gosh and it's really taking a toll on my mood....especially before I hit the sack at night. The feeling is absolutely not something I look forward to everyday knowing that I'll irritate the hell out of hubby who has to endure the sound of my burp! *excuse me* I know he understand my situation and will not complain a single bit......but I hate it myself too! Prefer to vomit it all out to get rid of all the gas inside my tummy rather than having to endure the non-stop burp to rid of the gas trapped inside my stomach......urgh!

This is totally different from my 1st pregnancy when I had to vomit everything I consumed during dinner every night in order to get a good night sleep. I've tried vomitting it all out now...but things just wont come out.......urgh!

I cant wait to get to my 2nd trimester....the honeymoon period of a pregnancy!

Finally here

My much unanticipated morning sickness has finally arrived this morning @ week 7!

Woke up with a dizzy sensation with my stomach somehow feeling uneasy. I dashed straight to the bathroom and poured out whatever liquid inside my stomach. Since I've not had any breakfast yet, the pretty grossed output tasted somewhat bitter and yellowish in colour! It was indeed a very much uneasy feeling - whats with the cramping muscles in my stomach. Something which I dread to happen in my pregnancy!

More to come I suppose........

The HeartBeat!

After a much 7-days worrifying wait, we finally managed to see our baby's heartbeat last night! - in his/her 7th week of life inside my belly. The wait was excruciating as it is a vital part of early pregnancy to be able to detect the foetal heartbeat. I've heard too much sad stories about how the baby's heartbeat was undetectable which led to unexpected and unanticipated decision and consequences. Hence my apprehensive move in announcing my pregnancy verbally to those I know.

Precious #2's heartbeat was beating real fast that we were all laughing with joy seeing the moving tiny lil dot on the screen. Even Dr Delaila was relieved upon detecting Precious #2's fast-moving heartbeat for she was also in fear last week when she couldnt detect any movement on the tiny lil dot we saw on the screen. All's well so far and we are more comfortable now in announcing the existence of Precious #2 to our friends and family.

Even Zach was excited upon seeing 'Mommy's baby' on the black screen!

Earlier than expected

It's all planned by Him. We are in no position at all to determine:-

1. when we want it
2. how we want it to look like
3. what gender it's gonna be

4. who it's gonna look like, etc etc

Well, Sept 13, 2007 is gonna be another remarkable date for me as it is the day I unexpectedly found out that I'm in my 6th week of carrying another life inside me. After 3 home-pregnancy tests and a confirmed ultrasound scan by my gynae............
Yes! I'm PREGGY!

It was all unexpected for it's a lil too early in my plan to have Baby No.2. It was that only ONE time...ONE particular time when we thought we would not strike the jackpot...and it has to happen THAT time. My failed calculation obviously....hubby said it's even easier to get a baby than to strike a 4D or jackpot!

Now, everything that I planned for before I thought I could be prepared for the conception of Precious #2 has to be put on hold, especially:-
1. Our much detailed planned vacation to Auckland in Oct - CANCELED
2. My laser eye treatment scheduled to be done next Friday (Sept 21) - POSTPONED

The TWO biggest plans that we had prepared prior to getting ourselves ready for pregnancy #2.
The plan was supposed to work this way:-
1. Going on another trip abroad this year knowing that we will not be able to travel far next year with Baby #2's existence. Well, I guess it's a message from the big one up there as well as Baby #2 telling us .....

"No, no, no, no, no, no, are not to go on another holiday without Precious #2. Hold on your plan until you welcome him/her and you shall go holiday in a happy family of 4!"

"No way mommy, daddy and kor kor are going on a holiday without me! I want to go along. Make sure you cancel your trip and wait for my arrival to go with you all!"

Now Now Now....dont get me wrong. I'm happy to know that I'm finally preggy for the 2nd time. Guess I'll need some more time to adjust to this slightly-earlier-than-expected new discovery and the fact that I'll eventually get bigger and bigger by days/months.....

Precious #2 will greet us sometime around 9th May 2008.
As I was going through my thoughts last hit me real hard on the coincidents that I've analysed in my mind....

Coincident #1 - My LMP for my 1st pregnancy happened to be 1st July 2004 and Zach came out on his EDD which is 8th Apr 2005....and now my LMP for my 2nd pregnancy happens to be 2nd Aug 2007 and Precious #2 will be out some time around 9th May 2008...see the coincidence?

Coincident #2 - I was born in May and my sister in June. Our birthdays are a month apart. My kids r gonna have the same coincidence! Not a big thing to coincide with...but's a thought!

Coincident #3 - He/she is gonna be a Taurus! Just like Mommy.......

Well....guess it's time again for me to get prepared for the pregnancy jargons/sensations:-

  1. morning/night sickness
  2. expanding belly
  3. visible stretched marks
  4. kicking lil thing in me
  5. contractions
  6. heartburns
  7. gradual hunger
  8. cravings, etc

That's my baby at 6th week of life, measuring only 1.57cm (the size of a poppy-seed)

With God's grace and mercy, I pray for a smooth pregnancy and Precious #2 will be healthy, normal and born to be a happy baby just like kor kor!
