In the latest womb reports, your amazing baby has now developed sensitivity to temperature! This means you’ll probably get a swift kick if you put a hot pad on your ginormous belly. ---> oh yes... he will be very very active kicking especially when i am cooking..
For the Elton John lovers out there-- yes, baby’s got blue eyes. At this point, all babies do, although depending on their chromosomal disposition, this could easily change after birth (or even between now and labor), but for the time being, blue it is. ---> hahhh.. never heard about it.. but why blue?? if he is delivered now, would the eyes still blue?? hmmm...
Thanks to their recently matured lungs and a remarkably strong immune system, over 90% of babies born in their 32nd week, survive premature births. So it’s pretty much a done deal. Even if your little monkey’s planning on heading out early, their survival odds are in everyone’s favor. Time to celebrate (no, no, wait until after the birth to crack open the champagne!) We’re talking baby-showers and alcohol-free punch! ---> err.. though sometimes i wish i would deliver ASAP as he is getting 'heavier'
And how's mom doing?
If your family or significant other is around and involved, it’s probably time to start discussing what’s going to happen when you really go into labor. ---> lom discuss lagi..
Of course, the delivery itself can be quite overwhelming for first-time viewers, so make sure and openly discuss the fact there will be blood, sweat,mucous, and possibly even a bit of poop (if you didn’t know already, it’s likely that while in labor and pushing, you also push out a bit of the ol’ number 2—it’s totally normal if not a little disgusting). ---> thank God my hubby wont be disgusted by blood & mucous as he also works with that hahahha
Even the weak-stomached birthing buddies can still help to make the labor-process more bearable with breathing assistance, massages, and constant reassurance and cheering: "Yay! That was a great contraction honey!" (Now run! Before she breaks your wrist!). For the more blood-bold and not so faint of heart, the positions of cameraman, baby-catcher, and/or umbilical cord-cutter are always available—just talk to your doctor or mid-wife beforehand so they can be prepared to deal with an extra person during the birthing process. ---> i dont think that would go as u planned... so just let it happen naturally i guess
Surprise! Your third trimester symptoms aren’t going away yet. If you just got back from peeing, you already know that your bladder is nearing non-existent-land. These joys will persist till you’re on the birthing bench. Also, be careful of lightheadedness during these last weeks. Your blood tends to pool in the lower limbs, resulting in low cranial blood pressure. So, watch out for the head rushes and get up nice-n-slow after sitting for long periods. ---> yeahh.. i think baby is comfortably sitting on my bladder and sometimes happily kicking the bladder..
other symptoms that i'm suffering most are:
1) TIREDNESS -- masyaAllah kalau balik keje tu rase cam nak tido je.. penat sgt, padahal bukannye teruk sgt keje kat lab tuh (buat masa ni lah).. selalu balik je rumah, dudok2 kejap, then naik mandi & solat kalau tak solat lagi, then turun dinner (i have to let my maid cook dinner for us as i really really really tired to cook, sorry sayang), then naik solat maghrib. Pastu kalau mata ni tak tahan sgt mmg terus tido.. kalau tak, buat keje sket or surf the nets, pastu kul 10-1030, sure dah ZZzzzz... baca buku mmg liat sgt.. isk
Today my DH is oncall, so senang sket citer hehehhe, ptg pas asar td dapat nap kejap.. lega sikit.. (kalau dia ada, kena la layan kan, takkan la pi tidoq plak, cian member pon penat keje gaks...)
2) kaki bengkak -- cam biasa lah especially approaching petang/malam.. so tido malam i will make sure my legs are up...
3) cramps -- arrghhh.. no matter how i try not to stretch my legs too much, the cramps still come once in a while, but lately it's more frequent... sabar sabar... 8 weeks je lagi the most... (hopefully)
hmm.. last week maid aku dh siap cuci2 sume baju2 baby.. daddy pon dh check playpen tu ok, cuma belum plan mana nak letak lagi.. but definitely kena letak baby dlm playpen, kalau tak.. tak tau la camane kakak & abang dia keje kan nanti...
dah booked mak utk dok sini selama 2 bulan tu.. kira 'paksa rela' tuh hehehhe.. yelah, by 3rd or 4th week (depending on kesihatanku & keje yg berlambak ke tak), aku dh kena masuk keje.. so, takkan la tinggal ngan maid terus, at least kena la ada orang tolong tengok2 kan gaks.. harus kelam kabut gak maid ku nanti dgn nak uruskan 2 hero/heroin tu, dgn baby lagi..
pastu dalam bulan ni nak kena order set bersalin etc. By mid may dah kene la aku kemas barang2 ekk.. alahaii.. ni yang lemah sket hehehhe masa 1st baby dulu semangat gaks, lagi satu sbb dok jauh pon.. bila dgn Haziq still semangat lagi though duduk dekat je ngan spital.. tp yang ni cam 'males' je.. maybe belum lagi kot.. tunggu few weeks lagi...
