36 weeks

36 weeks bumpfie.Baby is still trying to dislodge the rib bone on my right side everyday, so alls good.

Wa damn sian. History is repeating itself again. Just went to do my growth scan, and realise since 2 weeks plus ago, fetus didn’t manage to put on much weight again. So my instinct was right. He’s like stuck at 2.1kg. Sian TTM. He’s suppose to put on 100-300g at this last tri. At this moment it’s the same feeling as per 3 years plus ago...that self blaming guilt of how useless my body and uterus is...always not being able to suffice to provide nutrients for the fetus at the last tri.

This was the entry 3 years ago, 2 days before Ellie was born. I ended off the entry by saying “Something is not right” Feel the creeps of mummy’s instinct. Till this day I’m very certain that if I had left Ellie inside my uterus any longer, she would have been a stillborn. It was very clear now my placenta was failing and Ellie had stopped growing for a few weeks before delivery. The entry prior stated Ellie stopped gaining weight at wk 35. And went from 50th centile to 6th centile.

Had my gynae appointment today. Baby is 2.1kg at 33weeks. I am sososoososo happy! 2kg of that 10kg I gained is not mine! Hahahha. Hahaha. The true reason I’m happy is that my baby is growing well and not fallen into the iugr range yet. ((: Unlike Ellie where she stopped growing around 31 weeks and no matter how many buffets I ate, it didn’t make a difference. I gained like a shocking 5kg within a few weeks cuz of the constant buffet I had to eat for her.

Gig done! Tada. I enjoyed this one sooooo much. It’s really a huge difference when it’s conducted in English..it’s like having a conversation with a fantastic listener that knows exactly what to ask and fills in the gaps for me. I realise DJs are really good and skilled conversationalists.I woke up with a flu today and was coughing and sniffing nonstop whenever the “on air” button is off.

This is the representative photo of my happiness today. I took childcare leave to accompany Ellie out for her dental appt today. Then when she came home to nap, I snuck out to do pedicure. Bought some household cleaning stuff and then sat down in blackball to drink a cup of bubble tea, while playing Pokémon Go.I realise my definition of happiness and perfect leave nowadays is just to hang out at my heart lander and eat my hawker food.
