2 weeks to 2nd trimester

Went for my check-up yesterday and al-hamdulillah everything goes well for me and the babies. As the doctor scan my tummy, he was showing me the three babies and their heartbeats. Well, seriously all I could see was a small dot blinking...I guess equipment are very high tech nowadays even at 10th week the heartbeats could be seen.

My appetite has not change much. Still having problem getting the food in my body system. I really can't wait for another 2 weeks cause that means, it's the end of my first trimester. People say, morning sickness and all the discomfort will be over once we enter the second trimester...yeah that's what people say. I'll just have to experience it myself and see what I have to say. Lots of people tried making me to look on the positive side of it, having said that if we go through a hard time with morning sickness it is a sign that the babies are developing accordingly. Well, at times you don't simply believe what people say, until yesterday while waiting for the doctor, another patient was telling me the exact same thing, but this time she quote it from an article, The Psychology of Pregnancy from Reader's Digest. Hmm...that makes it more believable considering where the source came from.

hmm...clueless for the title

Well, I guess I should have known better not to give my sister, hana the honour of writing the first post for this blog. But on the other hand, I should have known better and foresee what she gonna write, I must be out of my mind if I were to expect nice pleasant words from her. Seriously, I can’t wait for it to be her turn to get pregnant and see what her behaviour is then. Currently, even not being pregnant, she already has this constant demand of things. She doesn’t even realise it until her boyfriend told her, but yet she refused to believe the fact. Oh, she mentioned I demanded for the expensive things, but she didn’t mention the fact that I actually said, even being offered 10k for shopping I would decline it because I prefer being at home. Alrite, enough about her….

Seriously, I never expect being pregnant is this bad. But some people say, it is all luck. I really salute to those pregnant mommies who are still strong and capable to go to work and do their normal daily chores. (Yup, I send in my resignation letter the minute I was confirmed pregnant)In my case, I’m most of the time lying down. I get tired easily. As for going to the mall, my eyes would always look out for the nearest bench. The other day, I took my bath, searching for my most comfortable clothes and after combing my hair and all, I realised I was almost out of breath….I felt even tired doing the normal daily chores.

The other day I e-mail my friend in Germany to share my news, it was so nice to read her subject of the e-mail: Three Great Hopes for the World. Of cause I'm crossing my fingers for those words to turn into reality =)

Oh in case anyone wondering….according to Doctor, I’m in my 8 weeks of pregnancy.

parasiteS are turning my sister into a monster!

For the first time, it crossed my mind, i am actually thankful for being away for these next 9 months (well…7 months I guess) here’s a sneak preview of wut’s in store these next few months, which of coz I’ll be missing out on …demands of all the expensive things in the world – hana! Kaknem nak apple! Nak apple yang besar2 tu,xnk yg biasa tu! (among others). “I cannot eat!! I’m hungry but I cannot eat! I want blablablabla”, which conveniently is nothing within her reach. Come to think of it, there, nothing is within her reach hence the “pass me this and get me that” that’s constantly in my ear, owh, and as I’m writing I hear this, exactly this, “ma my tummy’s not happy, it’s upset”, in that whiny voice of hers. The only time we don’t hear anything as such probably is when she’s sleeping. Fortunately for the rest of us she sleeps as much as cosmin, the house cat.thing is she wakes up at 2 or 3 am. Then there’s tis distant voice in my sleep or a soft distant knock on mama’s door asking for bread. Toasted. no less. Just to waste my precious sleeping time, I can go on and on but I knoe that people in this house are gonna suffer more and more as she gets bloated enough that she topples over. Owh did I mention she has ‘all day’ sickness instead of morning sickness? I’m assuming that once I say that u need not be a mensa member to knoe what im talking about. And to think that after all this, once 3 little heads pop out of my sister, the real ‘adventure’ begins…

p/s anyone willing to adopt her for these few months are welcome to send in their applications. No previous experience necessary.
