Guess who’s at 30 weeks now!
This pregnancy actually zipped by in a flash! I guess this is what happens with second pregnancies – you’re too busy with the kid that’s around that you don’t notice time zooming by.
Cannot believe I have max ten more weeks to go only! Fatty thinks it’s still a long way (think he’d rather see Bump tomorrow if not for the complications) but it’s not.
I’m so chill this pregnancy that we haven’t actually bought anything much yet. So far, I got bath towels, a three piece pack of pajamas from Mothercare, some pink sheets for the crib… and that’s all WTF. Oh wait I also bought some newborn diapers cos they were on sale hahaha.
In my defense, we mostly have everything ready for you already because of your koko. But I’ve already created a shopping list for you ok don’t worry *hastily
Things to get:
Milk bottles – last time I bought Avent cos it was the most famous brand. And Fighter actually took to the bottle first before the breast so I don’t think there was nipple confusion. But this time I’m worried about it and I’ve seen people recommending Medela Calma teats so I’m waiting to get those!
Baby pillow and blanket – because Fighter is still using his
A new canopy for the Bugaboo Bee – in baby pink, no less. Going for a Bugaboo event next week so quite excited to check them out!
….Shit what else does a newborn baby need? Why my memory so bad wtf.
Oh I guess stock up on toiletries as well – body wash, a new tub of diaper cream cos I don’t think it’s hygienic for them to share, new face cloths…
I read somewhere that we should introduce the big bed to kids before the baby comes so they don’t associate getting kicked out of their comfy crib on account of the baby.
Last night we let him fall asleep in his crib, then moved him over to the bed. He woke up three hours later panicking cos it was a new place hahaha. Pat him back to sleep with minimal issue though and he slept well after that. Hope every night is as good as this!
And how’s Bump?
This is her at 29 weeks! At 29 weeks, she already weighs in at 1.2 kg! In comparison, Fighter at 31 weeks was 1.07 kg. T_______T Damn you preeclampsia.
On the bright side, the fact that Bump is gaining well means there’s no problem with my placenta so far and nutrients are passing through to her just fine. ^^
And this is me at 29 weeks! Wah so geli, bloated max still wanna act cute and put up one leg hahaha. (actually wanted to show my shoe la)
Let’s see. At 30 weeks my bump feels hugeeee. By this time last time I was already in the hospital so I was obviously quite inactive. Now I’m still up and about and hefting Fighter around occasionally so I do feel the strain much more. My muscles especially in the legs feel more ‘sui’ (sour wtf) and I generally feel heavy and whale-like. I’ve also gained 10 kg at this point.
My heartburn is damn bad also. It’s like 24/7 now omfg T___________T The pain is so bad my entire throat is sore and even my ears hurt wtf. Last time my heartburn was easily neutralized with a cup of fresh milk but now even milk doesn’t help! I hate the taste of Gaviscon so I just tahan the pain la. ._.
The only thing I can eat without getting heartburn (or at least minimal burn) is brunch type food! Had this for lunch today and I think Imma eat it every day for the next ten weeks.
What else ah?
Removed my wedding ring this morning too because my finger was getting cinched in already and I scared it cannot come off in labor and they cut it off wtf.
Swelling has begun! A bit scared cos this was a very distinct symptom of my preeclampsia but so far BP is still good. But definitely started bloating la my knees and calves are fatter, my feet bones are missing wtf. Jawline also rounded already.
Argh can’t wait to deliver honestly. The pregnancy sped by but now that I’m at 30 weeks and counting every day my BP is normal, time is barely inching by. D:
Also tired of just being pregnant in general la wtf.
Can’t wait to fit back into my old clothes – it’s even uncomfortable wearing leggings now cos of how huge Bump is. So I keep sticking to shift dresses and not to say I got a lot of them wtf.
Tired of battling the acid burn every night and tired of feeling tired when I play hide and seek with Fighter.
Time please pass faster!!!
