This bump is showing so much even at the first trimester! People say second pregnancy usually shown up much earlier. Although I feel it’s mainly gas coz I feel so bloated since the beginning plus ahem..constipation but with all the vomiting after every meal I didn’t gain any weight at week 13 even till week 16. Which got me worry and wonder when is my appetite coming back because I almost forget how to enjoy eating and I have no craving at all. During the last trip back to KL I thought I would have better appetite with my mom cooking and the local food but not I don’t feel like eating most of the time the metal taste in my mouth was so bad that I only eat whatever when I feel hungry or small portions with frequent meals.
Things finally changed at week 16.5! My nausea stop following by less to no vomiting and started to crave for food! Thank God I finally enjoy eating again, so I stuff myself with food to make sure I gain some weight, home-brew chicken Essence, avocado blend and all that help my boost some healthy weight. And I gain 2 kg in 2 weeks, wooray finally in healthy rage! Never been so happy gaining weight in my life, of coz I know I need to control but I hope this baby can at least have 3kg at birth weight. Chloe was too small at 2.6kg at birth one of the reason she’s petite😭
I feel this pregnancy my hormones goes hair wire, from the really painful backaches due to relaxin hormone then ache breakout from week 12 till today! I never had such a bad skin before but now acne all over my face i really hope this will stop soon and hope there’s no scar left behind. Overall i feel this hormone thing so much stronger than any other pregnancy or not sure it’s aging that make it worst!
After looking at my condition my mum told me maybe 2 are just enough for you. I agree for now not sure i want to go thru this pregnancy thingy + new born stage for the 3rd time but if God bless us with more kids who know right? but for now 2 is good with no help 2 adults + 2 kids should be alright to handle and financially too.
Last routine check up was good, Praise the Lord! baby was waving when doctor doing the scan..haha and we got to know the gender, Prof. Tee is always accurate with gender he say 95% chun when Chloe time the sonographer told us what Prof. Tee guess is always correct. We are okie with both girl and both to be honest as long as baby is healthy if girl Chloe will have a sister to grow up with if a boy then my factory can really consider to close. But my in-laws are more to wanting a boy because there’s no boys yet in the family anywhere its not to them to decide but God already predestined.
Next week we are going for the detail scan and we are half way thru the pregnancy already, how times flies~
Today is your birthday ever since we got Chloe your birthday always shared with Mother’s day. You’re always panicky asked me what i want a few weeks before and running around to get me mother’s day gifts. I think you appreciate me more than a mother then a wife..haha no worries i’m secretly happy to be appreciated this way at least you see my effort as a mother. You don’t mind sharing the limelight because you’re always prefer to be low profile . So this year i researched a few restaurants to celebrate your birthday cum mother’s day and you picked Lawry’s The Prime Rib and it’s was a smart choice because they have Mother’s day 5 course meal!
He got the signature prime rib as main and mine was the lamb not sure when i love lamb so much every time we’re in a western restaurant i will go for lamb dish while Chloe had her first 3 course kid’s meal which she ate a lot. Everything was perfectly done and we are so full and stuff, super glad that my appetite is back!
my ohana, my everything
they also had this complimentary birthday cake so we end the dinner with 4 desserts on the table that we can’t finish it. Overall is a good dinner and my old-fashioned and practical husband love everything classic and this place fit his bill!
Finally feeling better to dress up and make up so must take a photo and we haven’t take any photo of the bump which Chloe insisted to join. We had a great night and good to feel normal and functional again!
Thanks dear husband, for all the love and sacrifices you provide to our little family. I couldn’t Thanks God enough for you as my husband because you’re perfect to me, you always made me feel safe, cherished and appreciated. You work so hard and never uttered a single complaint so i can stay home and focus on our child watch her grow, nurture her and witness every milestones. I’m always thankful for this opportunity to be able to live aboard so we could build our family on our own and learn to be independent although we some times feel hopeless and lonely without family or helps around but with you i know we will be able to go thru every challenges as a team/partners. You always so supportive and put our need/want at the very first place, during last few months of my early pregnancy you take up all the house chorus handle Chloe all by yourself and even bring her out alone every Saturday so i could rest at home and enjoy some quiet time.
As we are marching toward our 7 years of marriage, i pray to God to continue help us grow spiritually together and love unconditionally, be humble and gentle to each other and teach us to depend on God through every difficult moment we face together in future. Love you to moon and back!

2. Last week of school for Chloe before holiday start, so many activities school excursion to snow city, Christmas party and teacher-parent day which keep us really busy. I’m glad that this school make a lot of effort to make the kids enjoy school and learning,teacher especially doing good job building good relationship with the students. Over a year Chloe enrolled in this school one thing i’m super amazed there’s none/zero case of hmfd at all throughout the year!
3. Ming finally got his license converted, i am not sure what i am waiting for since i got my transcript ready, i should get mine done asap. We manage to rent a car to hunt for house related stuff at the east side the other day. Glad that we had our carseat ready and there a car sharing system located just next to our house so it’s super convenient to rent and return. Yeah to more drive in SG!
