i have ballooned~

 That's me at 31 weeks! errr...blur? can't really see the size of my belly? hmm...

okay, okay,....look how huge this belly is. how the heck did i balloon to this extend? i also have the same question on my mind sometimes.. *sigh* looking at this picture i thought i was carrying twins instead of one little girl. hahahah... i have the feelings that most of the weight i have gained so far are not so much of the baby's weight. from the previous check up which was last week the baby weigh 1.5kg. so i was confused, was it because of my eating habits ( which a healthy one ok) that led me to balloon so big?? i must admid i get really hugry almost every 2-3 hours and i have to eat something to curb the feelings.heheheh...

back to my baby's weight so far, the doctor said that the baby is developing normally in terms of her weight according to my weeks of pregnancy. so i asked him what would be the expected weight when i have come to my full term? he said that we're expecting the baby to be at 3kg something! phewwww....i was speechless because i must admid that i'm a little bit afraid i will have to push out a 4kg baby insted! CAN I?? i may seem big, but i posses a very little courage. hukhuk... but, never mind, i should be more positive from now on because that's my only hope! ;) if others can do it, i should too. right?? but i still hope that the doctor's prediction is correct which is 3kg! hahahah...

currently, i am in my final trimester which is not a very comfortable one as compared to the 2nd trimester which was HEAVEN!! i walk very slow nowadays cos i feel so heavy. i'm always short of breath especially during giving my lecture which i have to talk a lot and i can't do anything about it. it's my job. the students notice that i guess and i frequently say "sorry class, give me a few seconds to catch my breath" and the would laugh. many of my colleagues and family actually said that i need to slow down a bit. very true indeed. i tend to forget that i'm pregnant sometimes. :)

my current goal now is just to quickly finish the syllabus so i can go for my maternity leave peacefully.the students are having their finals this end of november so i will have to make sure i finish all the assessments before i start to take leave which is in the early november ,insyaAllah.

in terms of the preparations for the arriving of this lil' one, i have to say, we almost there...hehehhe..almost complete. i am such a shopaholic when it comes to buying baby's clothes. so far we have bought too many clothes for baby and that makes my mak decided to step forward to and say "STOP BUYING ALREADY" hahaha..i can't recall how many times my mak has reminded me to stop buying the clothes. too many.

i can't help myself. buying for baby equals to buying for me although i can't wear them. hahaha..my favourite brand for new born is Pegion, also Truddy & Teddy as these brands have very creative designs for new borns as well as the good quality.so cute!the prices are reasonably good.not as expensive as others kot? besides, we should support the local brands kan! ;) they're very high quality okay.

Hasil tawanan for baby from shopping malls.berbaloi2!
Last time Mothercare had promotion so we took that advantage to buy a few items there as well. i don't really fond of buying baby's stuffs through online though.i'd rather go and choose on my own. besides, i love Modernmun also Momscare, these are the regular places i go to buy 80% of my baby's stuffs during the Megasales season cos the prices are extremely low during that time.

Now, i think for the next baby's stuffs hunting i should focus more on my needs cos i think we have almost all the baby's essentials. i don't have the brest pump yet. i don't have the warmer & steralizer yet, i don't even have the maternity pad yet! banyak laa...hahaha...never mind, i still have the time kot.

Nowadays, my prayers mostly concentrated on the baby and i always ask for Allah's help to give me strenghts to continue working normally. i must say that i'm getting very very tired easily now. i'm very concern of my students if can't really perfom well in front of them. kesian jugak...

Comfort and Discomfort

Orang kata i am now HEAVILY PREGNANT looking... ya laa, pregnant at 7 month memang la heavy kan...currently, i'm experiencing the uncomfortable stage of my pregnancy and when i say uncomfortable it is very very uncomfortable indeed. apa kebenda yg uncomfortable tu? well, i guess all pregnant women are going through almost the same experince that i'm enduring now. I couldn't sleep well at night eventhough i was dead tired! pusing kanan salah, pusing kiri salah, tidur straight lagi salah! i felt that the baby was giving me a sign macam dia tesepit dalam perut ni everytime i turn to the side. but to sleep straight is alomos impossible cos when we are pregnant, our uterus is stretched and rasa sangat tak selesa for me. the only solution is to sleep with both legs bent and put many pillows all around me. sangat pelik if anybosy see me sleeping nowadays, bantal penuh keliling!

if i want to turn to the side, i have to make sure i have one pillow to support my big belly at the side. kalau tak, i could fell the baby was frantically kicking cam nak mintak tolong lepaskan dia dari tesepit! hahaha..seriously, i'm not kidding! and i realized that, turning to the right when sleeping is much more ok than turning to the left. baby tak kick kuat2 or laju2 sgt.but, i would wake up feeling sooooo numbed on my right hand la pulak.kebas abeh.. ;( * sigh* what to do? harus terus sabar dan sabar lagi la.

hmm, sometimes i really miss my pre-pregnancy sleep. sesuka hati ja nak tidur cemana. definitely boleh dengan selamba tidur kuak dada. hahaha....but since i got pregnant, rasanya dh 7 bulan jugak la tak tidur kuak dada ni. bahaya kan. ;p

i know that i can actually buy a specific pillow for pregnancy but i don't think i need. plus, it costly, rasa cam bazir ja. so i decided to find my own solution by putting many pillows all around me and i just need to bear with the discomfort for the next 2 months or so. patience is virtue after all.

well, i have also made some preparation for tha baby and i bought many of the baby's stuffs during the mega sale that ended last month. i don't really take photos of all the things i bought for baby cos many of the things are normal stuffs that all mom-to-be buy for baby. but, after we discovered the baby's gender, may of the stuffs are specifically for baby girl. we even bough skirts for baby! imagine if my doctor misscalculate in his predictions? according to the 3D it's a girl, but kalau yg pop out nanti a boy? kesian laa my baby...mom dah beli skirts bagai. so for next baby's stuffs hunting i think i should buy more white color attire for baby.

many of the things we bought for baby at modernmun

Besides modernmun, moms'care pun best jugak. these two boutiques have a complete range of baby's neccessities and mother's as well. and the price are resonably good la especially during mega sales. puas hati rasanya. from baju to newborn carseat all were offered at good deal during last mega sales. and we have yet to buy the stroller as i reckon, i might not need it yet. so we decided to wait for the next mega sales this end of the year.

the best thing to buy for baby at this stage i guess the clothes. especially girl's clothes kan?? Rizal is always more excited than myself when it comes to buying baju baby nih...

an excited papa-to-be asked to snap this picture of his baby girl's romper! over~
Hmm... we still have a a lot to buy actually, being me who is not so organised, i don't really keep a proper list to buy. everything we bought so far was based on what we feel like buying. so i guess for the next baby's stuffs hunting, we should write all properly cos takot makin lama makin tak larat nak bejalan pusing shopping malls..

okay, have a nice weekend people! much love to all~
