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.

Week 21- Week 23

The very day baby turned 21 weeks, we flew to Sabah! Blogged all about that here.

This is when I realised praying without a chair is impossible and I can't fit into my rings anymore... 


Other than my fingers, my feet are also starting to swell up. Weird, I thought water retention in pregnancy only happens in the third trimester?  But swollen feet or not, that definitely can't stop me from travelling some more. One week after, I was at Batam with my big family to celebrate my baby cousin's first birthday.

Week 25

I had an appointment at KK to check for gestational diabetes on one of the days during Ramadhan. I've been told by many of my friends about this glucose drink that taste awfully sweet and impossible to finish up but I kinda love it! You know I have a thing for super sweet stuff....

...which explains why I'm tested positive for gestational diabetes urgh! It came as a surprise though cos my parents don't have diabetes, and as said by my gynae during my previous appointment I have a low risk of having it cos I'm young and not overweight. Oh well :(

Bought our first ever baby item during a baby fair - a Tula!

Week 27

The last week of my second trimester!

Just like the previous trimester, everything was easy and I had no other problems except for the fact that I had to control my food intake no thanks to gestational diabetes. Danna has been super helpful with the house chores and he even cooks for me on days my body just feel like doing nothing at all. Lucky for me, Ramadhan falls during the June holiday so I enjoyed waking up at noon every single day and lazing around at home all day. Oh how I miss those moments SO MUCH now T_T

Danna and I spent a few days in KL during the semester break. Despite being tired from all the walking and having to refrain myself from eating all the good food, I sure enjoyed every single bits of it cos I know it was going to be our last time travelling with just the two of us. Next time we have our mini with us and I bet it's gonna be 1000x tiring.

Anyhoots, highlight of the KL trip has gotta be this!!!!


xoxo, N
