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~
i just realized i never do a proper announcement of we are expecting 2019 version here yet. So here it is~
Did i mentioned i love giving my husband surprise, yup this year he get another one! Not sure he get bored of this trick already or not, but still i love seeing his 傻笑. So that day we went for a valentine lunch without Chloe during our Cny trip in KL, my sweet sister suggested to babysit Chloe so we can go hang out a little. My period was late just by a day but i got this instinct that might be something so went ahead to test it quietly that morning before the 2 still in bed and it turn out to be faint positive but still a positive right? So i proceed to take a photo and send it over during our lunch date.
His first response was laugh at the screen strangely then ask 几时？几时？what 几时？now lar baby in my tummy, i answered. Actually we are really surprised and couldn’t believe this happen so quickly. Basically it was first month we are finally ready to try after we just moved in to our new place, my friend say God want to give us house warming gift too! Okie, ill take it. Thank you God.
We proceed to let Chloe know after we reached home, she then announced herself to be a Che Che ask us to call her Chloe Che Che. Since we don’t know the gender so she go on and saying didi/mei mei instead of just baby and so many times people thought we are having a twin because she would go around and say i have didi/mei mei already! i’m a big che che now！
the said big che che
She’s been nothing but a blessing to us all this while, she has been very kind and gentle to me. She help me a lot too to pick up stuff on the floor, throw rubbish and running around fetching me stuff when i was struggling with morning sickness. She may be a very difficult and high need child since newborn but now she have grown up to be a very sensible and observant girl. I’m sure she will be good sister to our new addition in the family.
Now baby just grow and stay healthy in mummy tum tum k! We can’t wait to meet you on your edd!
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!
