Hello Baby No. 2!

Thursday, January 31, 2008

Meet Baby No. 2, the new addition to my life.

Baby No. 2... lives in me, taking my nutrients and oxygen (my colleague, YZ, refers to it as a parasite).

This 3rd pregnancy has been so different from the 2nd (for those who didn't know, my 1st pregnancy was an ectopic case). I have a stronger nauseating feel, more vomiting scenes, more tiredness, a bigger bump, more bloatedness, more breathlessness, but less appetite. I'm so sensitive to smells now. Any kind of smell. Like the smell of perspiration, the smell from the toilet, the smell of food on my clothes. All these make me wanna puke. I felt so terrible and so weak last weekend that I ended breaking down and I cried. Ch was very nice, and she kept asking me "Mommy, why are you crying? Are you feeling better?" And she kept wanting to sing to Baby. Oh, it was so comforting to hear that from my girl. 

Something to confess (in case any of my students are reading this right now), I've not been marking much. In fact, I think I've only managed to mark one set of worksheets so far this year! I've been so tired after school ends, so all I can manage is to drive myself home without puking along the way, then plop my heavy body on the sofa or bed and snooze until ZY comes back. After having dinner and picking Ch up from my MIL's place, I'll engage in my usual activity- lying down and resting... until Ch sleeps. That's when I sleep too. Looking at the piles and piles of worksheets on my table in the staffroom, I think if this goes on, I'll probably be able to stack enough paper to hide myself from the rest!

So now, all I want for Chinese New Year is to be able to finish marking 50% of my stuff, and not to puke on the way when we go for New Year visitations.

  16. just wanna update everyone on my progress.

    i'm feeling better, with occasional nausea still. but appetite's getting slightly better.

    dun think i'm putting on much weight yet (in fact, i lost 1.5 kg since pregnancy), but am really praying hard that this'll get better.

    one day when Ch saw me vomiting, she asked me "mommy, why don't baby pop out from your tummy yet? then you won't vomit!"


  17. Hahaha... Ch so cute! Wow! Mdm Heng! Jia You! I see ya going to the toilet often! Hehe...
