Bump at 13w3d. Baby was 6.5cm at 13w. At the 13w check up, baby moved during the scan from side profile to face us. So tickled to see baby move. We also got to see the top view of baby’s head and hands too. Spent 1.2k on the panorama test. Hopefully we will get the reasons by this week or early next week. Can’t wait to find out the baby’s gender. When the nurse asked if we want to know the gender, we immediately said yes! I don’t know how some can hold off knowing... cos I’m dying to find out.

Looks like the next few months will be a very busy period. List of things to complete within 5-6 months:1) We will need to find a new place2) Renovate3) Pack and clear old house for handover4) Move to new place5) Hire a domestic helper6) Find a confinement nanny7) Buy baby essentials.😱😡The husband and I must be mad. We have a place in mind already, so we just need to view the different units within the development. Rather new development with built ins, so simple renovation. 🀭

clothes for the bump

I read that the bump will grow really quickly in second trimester. So in preparation of that, I decided to cart out some bump friendly clothes from taobao. Based on reviews, the material for this is quite thick and stretchy, so I carted this out in 2 colours. It’s around $20 before shipping.

My Sephora loots from the sale arrived on Monday. And the fresh soy face cleanser was missing and I didn’t realized it until today. So guys, do remember to check your items. I don’t know if it’s the pregnancy that’s making me blur/ forgetful πŸ˜….

Saw the doctor again today! During the scan, πŸ‘ΆπŸ» beanie moved. Everyone saw it except me 🀦🏻‍♀️. At some point I was laughing at something the doc said so my stomach was moving quite a bit. I was so sure it’s my laughter but doc confirmed the movement. And I got to hear the heartbeat for the first time. Based on my last period, I’m supposed to be 10w. But based on scan it’s 9w3d. I don’t know how this works but doc mentioned that EDD won’t change.

Thoughts

I just watched the Channel News Asia documentary, Regardless of Class. And I have a lot of thoughts about this.The scene whereby the host brought together a group of 15-17YOs while uncomfortable, is reality of what is happening on the ground. I feel that this needs to be brought to the forefront. Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not happening.
