12 weeks old

Little angel has more than doubled in size during the past 3 weeks and measuring (crown to rump) about 2 1/2 inches.

Little angel's digestive system is beginning to practice contraction movements (so that little angel will be able to eat) and the bone marrow is making white blood cells (so that little angel can fight off those bad germs).

Miraculously, the pituitary gland at the base of the brain has started producing hormones (little angel will one day be able to make babies of his or her own!). WOW!!!!

Lumut 20-22 Nov 08

Dad wanted to clear his leaves and so he booked an apartment in Swiss-Court Holiday Apartment in Damai Laut, Lumut.

It was a relaxing holiday with family. Surprisingly, my nausea was better the 3 days I was there. Maybe is because of the fresh air there or maybe because I felt so relaxed there.

Whatever it is, I am glad my mum persuaded me to go there in the end!

Hating my Supplements

Dr. Eric gave me 3 types of supplement capsules.

1st of all is the huge gigantic Calcium pill called Calcium Plus Bio-Enhanced by Abbott. My god, it is so big that if I accidentally swallowed it horizontally, I could actually feel the movement of the pill slowly in my throat all the way to my stomach. It's a nasty feeling.

Next is the Fish Oil capsule called NeuroGainPB. It is supposed to come packed with concentrated fish oil with all the good nutrients such as DHA, EPA, AA, OA, etc.

Lastly is the smelly capsule called Sangobian Capsule by Merck. It is supposed to be consists of folic acid, iron, etc. This pill makes me slightly constipated and causes me to have black stool. And when i burp, the smell of this capsule is yucky!!!

I am supposed to continue with all these capsules throughout my pregnancy...sigh!!!

10 weeks 1 day old

Time to visit Dr. Eric again. This time the ultrasound shows that Little Angel is 10 weeks. Dr. Eric now uses the normal ultrasound where the mouse-like thingy is placed on my belly (no more vaginal probe).

I always feel at ease after my gynae visit. Don't know why. Maybe it's because of the reassurance I get after having a chance to peek into Little Angel's world.

After all, my stomach is still so small and I can't feel that I am pregnant at all. Oh ya. I lost another kg. From 47kg, i now only weigh 44kg.

However, Dr. Eric says this is normal as I have nausea. He advised me not to eat things that are too sour (laksa, pineapple, tomyam) for the 1st trimester and also no bak kut teh and other herbs food for the meanwhile.

Back from MIA!

Hey peeps...I will be updating my blog using blogger from now onwards. So please update all your links to me ;)

Peter & I just came back from our 1st anniversary in Langkawi. We had a marvellous time there! Weather was kind to us and it was total R&R in Casa Del Mar and Tanjung Rhu Resort. We were very sad to say goodbye.

Look at the clear blue sky.

Look at the low tide. You can practically walk all the way to the little islands.

We also made some friends there.

9 weeks - Foetus

My little angel has by now officially graduated from embryo to foetus. This week, tiny muscles are starting to form which allows little angel to move his/her arms and legs.
