The Second Trimester

Week 14 - Week 19

The dreadful backaches welcomed me as I entered my 14th week. But sleeping with my back flat on the bed is not the only challenge for weeks to come. My teenage dream of having a bigger bust have come true (lolol) but I'm not sure now if I'm liking it anymore cos they're soooo sore. boohoos.

The day baby turned 19th week, I flew to KL with my cousins! Blogged about it here.

I finally broke the news to my cousins and was pleasantly surprised to know that one of them is pregnant too & her EDD is just two weeks after mine. So glad to know so many people who are in this together with me! I also found out that three of my colleagues are pregnant too, and their EDD are just weeks after me! Got me wondering if I've accidentally sprinkled some baby dust around me? :p

Oh oh and I experienced my first ever baby kick on my second day in KL! Well actually I had that feeling once when I was at work but I wasn't too sure if whatever I was feeling back then were baby's kicks or God-knows-what-else-in-my-tummy-kicks. But that night I really saw with my own eyes the movements on my tummy and for a moment I just froze, not knowing how to react. hehehe. 

Week 20

Yay to my mid pregnancy!!!!!

Nothing new happened this week except for more swollen feet. One night, I had a really bad cramp and I honestly thought they were contractions or Braxton hicks(well in my head any pain is contractions as if I know how they feel!) and I was crying out loud in pain. What makes it even more painful was seeing my danna sleeping peacefully next to me -_- About thirty minutes or so I rushed to the toilet cos I had this super strong urge to do my big business. Turns out, it was just diarrhea attack. T_T

Another highlight of my 20th week (April the 26th to be exact:p ) I had my much anticipated detailed scan. I have been getting dreams of having a baby girl but Danna still believes it's the other way round. As the doctor was checking for baby's body parts, she asked if we want to know the gender and Danna immediately said yes. I was hesitant at first, part of me somehow wants to keep it a secret lol.

We were asked to guess based on what we see on the screen. I was pretty sure I saw a penis so I said a boy. On the other hand, danna insisted the opposite. Obviously, we all know now that my firstborn is a daughter. Honestly I was a lil worried about danna knowing how much he wanted a son but when the doctor said we've got a healthy baby, seriously nothing else matters already.

The First Trimester

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Fortunately for me, my first trimester was nothing but easy breezy. Yup I am one of the few lucky mummies who don't have to go through the morning sickness at all. Thank you for making my life so much easier baby! Here are some weekly highlights for my first three months of pregnancy.

Week 5- Week 9

Right after informing Danna about the good news, the next person I texted was my mom's lil sister. I didn't want to tell my family first because I prefer doing that face-to-face, plus I was pretty clueless on what I'm supposed to do next. Since my aunt had just given birth last year and she's also like my second mom to me, that explains why I decided that she should be the first to know about it.

The conversation goes like this.....


19 January 2017 - exactly two months after our wedding. It was an extra special day for us cos we met the gynae and and of cos Blue (the name my bffs and I came up with, also a clear indication of the preferred gender for our firstborn lol). Upon seeing the baby on the screen, I just teared like crazy! It's just surreal to think that I have a human being growing inside me! Not sure if it was too early to blame the pregnancy hormones but I was totally overwhelmed with emotions and I when I looked at danna, it was clear he was trying very hard to keep his cool. 

Too bad we weren't allowed to take any pictures or video inside the room.


Week 7 is hell week cos I was having constant migraine all day round. I met the doctor on a Sunday and went on medical leave the next day. Then I was supposed to be on a two-day course but I only managed to survive day 1! Headed straight to KKH after the course and cried all the way in the cab omg so drama mama. Cried even harder in the A&E cos I was told my temperature was very high. Worst, I was all alone and I just want to go back home. Lysa arrived shortly before the danna and they accompanied me for dinner. Slightly later, Ira arrived to surprise me and just make me feel better. Blessed to have such sweet friends around me!

Week 8-9 turned me into a monster. My hunger pangs start to hit me like crazy every two hours and my tummy's grumbling ALL THE TIME. It's like baby's saying feed me NOW mama! But I'm thankful for my huge appetite, my pregnant aunt couldn't even drink a glass of water without throwing it all out. Oh ya it's also this period of time that I decided to cut my long hair short. New hair new me gitewwww. :p

Week 10- Week 14

Week 10 - met my baby!!!

I turned a year older on my 13th week and the danna bought me an AngelSounds fetal doppler!

I turned obsessed, I tell you. There's not a single day that passed without me listening to the beats coming from the doppler. & each time I do so it's a mixed feel of exciting and reassuring, reminding me of the life I am growing inside of me. Those were the days I tell myself I can't wait to hold this child of mine in my arms, and till now I still can't believe she's already here, safely with me.

Expecting the Unexpected

Monday, September 18, 2017

It's the 8th of January 2017 as I am typing this. Exactly this day last week, I found out I was pregnant.

I don't wish to share this piece of news to the world just yet, but at the same time I worry I might forget the littlest details if I were to blog about this at a later date, so here I am pouring it all out and saving everything to be published in the future. 

Okay where was I... oh yes, I AM PREGNANT! 

New Mummy In The House

Saturday, September 16, 2017

On this very date just three years ago, I don't even know about the danna's existence. Today we're married, living in our own house and now, he's the father of my child. 

I love the both of you so so much.

xoxo, N
