i love my department! we should hang out more like that..

WEEK 7 
ok morning sickness have officially become whole day sickness
i decide to change daily entry to weekly one and foresee a monthly one soon
this week we are back to KL for 2 week Christmas Holiday
baby first 'meet' with family~ everyone is excited for our homecoming at least mummy feel so
we planned to meet up few bunch of friends and outing but ended up all cancelled last minutes coz all i want to do is stay home lay on bed and sleep whole day when I'm awake I'm definitely eating 
the only thing we got tick off the list visited Penang with Cathy with her hubby for a food trip! 
but whatever holiao we ate ended up in toilet bowl 1 hour later but worthy lar at least i taste them all
my friend keep remind me to be positive vomit or feeling sick mean baby is active in my worm..i need positive energy once i got pregnant i felt moody and sad i blame hormone and the morning sickness my body is not mine anymore~

Dizziness 
then hubby successfully drag me out for brunch with in law they wanted to tried out tim ho wan so we went early to queue for them and the queue is crazy! we know the food doesn't worth the queue as we always have it in SG but for in-law we join the queue and bad thing happen
we're half way the long queue suddenly i feel uneasy to breath and dizzy 
the next time i know my vision is blur then black out, i was sweating badly cold sweat to be exact and hubby was holding we tightly on his chest 
he don't dare to move or walk out the queue as he know i have no strength to walk at all, so happen my in-law arrived and quickly help to carry me over to somewhere with chair accordingly to them i was so pale and body is cold we seated at Dome they ordered hot chocolate and sandwich for me but all i want to do is close my eye and pray..
i can hear their conversation everyone is worried and wanted to bring me to the doctor
i was fine later after food and rest, really Thanks God that i didn't fall down and hubby was with me

Weak body
after that day onwards i try my very best to avoid crowd and mall (the place i used to like the most) parent and in-law and of coz hubby take extra care of me making sure i eat enough food 
my mum make me chicken essential and teach hubby to make for me when we're back in SG then my dad brought birdnest for us to bring back, baby you see everyone love you so much! caught a cold one night then fever the next day why so weak! then i went to my mum place to rest and my personal nurse aka my mum taking care of me and recovered super fast! i really miss home 

WEEK 8

New Year Retreat with family 
the next day my dad planned a retreat for the family at Sekeping Tenggiri actually i don't feel like going because the book say that mosquito love pregnant women and i just recovered from fever but Thanks God we did! it was a nice experience, surprisingly not a single bite from mr mozzie or insect i have a good rest and fresh air make me feel better that's the first day i never vomit ever since, baby seems to love the nature huh.. i think baby is more like the daddy coz i started to hate aircon now i always have my sweater with me i hate artificial air from machine! i can use sleep without fan and air conditioner all night just like hubby! haha i couldn't believe 
okie back to our stay at Sekeping did i mention we spend our New Year there! it was a great idea waking up in the nature on new year day~ we have quality time with family talk nonsense, enjoy mummy's steamboat and laughing at each other freaking out to have shower outdoor at night
we rushed to visit my usual gynae in KL actually I'm quite happy to able to booked an appointment 

Supplements and love from everyone
i brought back lotsa love from everyone, herbs from my mum, birdnest from dad, food from in law, and plenty of supplement that everyone suggested but i haven't touch any yet till the date..

WEEK 9
i'm so dread to going back to work! i spend 2 week on bed whenever i thought of the travel journey to work ill get a headache! Thanks God i manage to survive at work my solution to crowded mrt just being patient waited for several train till crowd is lesser only i board the train and walk extra slow just don't care about time since i'm out earlier i still can reach office at 9 and leave on 6 at least~ Everyone suggest me to work from home since travelling and crowd in the peak hour seems to be dangerous to me but everyday i still make it to work safety so Thanks God lo!

WEEK 10 
try to eat more home cook so whenever i can i rush home to cook 
sometimes when i'm really hungry ill just eat first without waiting for hubby to come home which i never do it before this no matter how late i will insist to wait for him as i don't like to eat alone 
as for now all i want is to feed my hungry bump only i realise our life no longer about you and me but someone very important is joining us! excited and nervous at the same times!
i always have snack like nuts, granola bar, or at least sweet with me to avoid fainting for the second times i cannot take the risk anymore and i've officially increase my meal to 5 per day
but i can only eat half of my meal per times either i eat it later or have snack for next meal 

WEEK 11
never a book person never imagine i read a book so fast year that's pregnancy related one
What to expect - When you expecting
this book answer all my doubts and questions i feel release after reading it every time!
oh and we just brought a pregnancy pillow! thanks to bee who recommend me Theraline and so happen junction8 have it so i quick grab it home 
my new love so looking for to go to bed every night it's so comfy!!
my day are so boring these day all i wanna do after work is bath eat and sleep! maybe watch few episode of drama with hubby before bed.. even same for weekend! other than church i just wanna stay in and buried myself in the bed.. at least we make it to buy blender for juice and weighing machine! i got a red Kenwood blender to match with my red Mayer pan set..

WEEK 12
i always looking forward for week 12 as i thought its the end of 1st trimester! everyone giving me hope that i will feel better after 1st trimester and i'm so cannot wait to it! but no! week 12 is not the end! argh apparently another 2 to 3 weeks~ this week i feel extra fatigue! i can fall asleep right after dinner as early as 830 to the next morning! pig or what! and my uncertain bump size! i wake up to small tiny bump every morning then it's getting bigger after every meal till dinner time it become huge like big bump! like a balloon! so bloated which make me can't breath properly.. and since last week i don't throw up food i ate anymore which is good but only wind yes throw up wind like burping but in vomiting way and in very loud and scary volume! its always happen in the morning and stop till i throw up some gastric juice...phew.. and i'm monitoring my weight with my new weighing machine so far 1kg gain~ never in my life feeling so happy about gaining weight! 

and also try to drink cup of fresh blend juice before breakfast and eat more fruits to solve constipation problem 
sometimes i'm really frustrated, dizzy, difficult in breathing when the train is pack with crowd and those are seated are normal healthy people instead of old, mum with kids or preggie of cause i can't do anything about it but just want to complain.. me and my friend was saying first trimester is the worst stage but since most of us don't look like pregnant no bump showing no maternity clothing but inside us our body was having war! and no one is giving us seat! when i feeling thick-skin i just grab empty priority seat and people will start staring at me they must be thinking hello u look healthy and normal why are you siting? haih awkward moment.. SG should practice this pregnancy badges like what they have in Japan! and it should be given by gynae when they annouce you're pregnant with those pregnancy handbook rather than milk powder advertisement! 
we need this!!

WEEK 13
Baby is size of a Peach! 
Heartburn is here! i couldn't sleep last night all thanks to this new pregnancy symptom
i've been sleeping very well since i got conceive but not now anymore!
when i lay down this discomfort burning sensation on my chest is killing me
not sure is it the food i had the night before trying to find what i did to trigger this heartburn
Have been working from home on Monday don't know why my Monday always so dramatic
but Thanks God my job and boss allow me to work from home
so i don't need to travel and suffer in the office but work comfortably at work
this week have been eating out a lot so lazy to cook
finally that's one day i feel like going out after work
so i dated hubby to Paragon coz i'm planning to shoot Maternity announcement picture this Saturday, like finally..  and i wanted to buy a cute pair of baby shoe but unisex since we haven't found out the gender of our precious little one..and i do some online research before i spend my time out since i can't afford a window shopping so i found few cute one from Ch√Ęteau de Sable
super cute and very affordable that also match the outfit i planned for us now i can't wait for the shoot, hope photos turn out good too
we also saw this very cute dress that we brought for our little niece..buying children stuff make us so happy!
my bump size it's quite obvious already tho the size is still uncertain to to bloated and gas
but when it's bloated badly i do look like 5 months pregnant so i decided to buy stretch mark cream
thanks to my pregnancy consultant Miss Sharon Bee 
the Clarins Stretch Mark Control Cream & Tonic Body Treatment Oil
but now i only remember to apply the oil at night as my morning is always rushing 
i seldom shop myself since i got pregnant other than tired and lazy all my focus is on baby related stuff
I'm happy to spend on baby rather than me since CNY is approaching i have no choice just go online and grab free loose or shift dress that i can wear during the festive 

The Magical Double Line


5//12//2014
Double Line
Today was suppose to my period due date.. so for fun and curious(coz this months at least 5 people come to me and ask am i pregnant??!? i was like really? do i gain some fat or what) so i did a pregnancy test (we stock up pregnancy test kit from malaysia since we planing for a baby coz it's cheaper there! #cheapskateparent) coz i'm very desperate so whenever my period is late ill go and test it out been trying for 2 months and no luck and very disappointed with the 1 line result each time so i didn't give much hope this month since my period is even a day late 
so just test it for fun and was not really concentrate and pass all my urine without letting some on the test area! hhaha i was thinking do God want me don't test it or what but i dont give up
and i drink lotsa water later to wait for my next urine.. and you know what!
my first 2 line in my life!!! im so thankful to God 
ever since we wanted a child we have been praying to God 
then i was thinking hey it may not be true right? so i take out another pregnancy kit from another brand (see i tell u we stock up pregnancy test) haha and 2nd double line appear!!! i'm overjoy most of the people must have call the husband to share this big news at the first time but i'm giving him a surprise~ (i always plan to do so coz i love to see his surprise face and expression) i called my mum and announce the news to her she very happy and keep asking me to eat more, take care and all..baby you're such a joy to everyone

so i got this soft toy from Bunnies by the bays that we found in Isetan few months back he say he will buy this for our baby in future together with the "proofs" in a box
all wrap and ready for him to reveal his surprise gift from GOD!
and secretly shoot a video of him open up the gift to record down the precious moment..
both of us have tear in our eye and straight we pray together holding hand God just keep pouring blessing on us! we pray that this baby can grow in God's word and guidance and honour God
so hubby can't wait to call parent-in-law so we called mil is happy and say it's time ~ haha
don't know why after i know this news i'm extra sensitive with the feeling in stomach i keep feeling that's sense of cramp here and there throughout the night but i googled it's say its quite normal as long as no bleeding.. baby please stick on mummy's ovary firm ok!
