And that is also the reason why I'd been so quiet lately in my blog.
We found out end of Nov, right on the dot on the day I missed my monthly menstrual.
|28 November 2014 - Pregnant with Baby#3|
I was feeling great then, until morning sickness started kicking in 2 weeks later.
And since then, all I wanted to do was to just lie in bed the whole day. Yes, seriously.
I didn't actually vomit every day. But I feel like vomitting e.v.e.r.y d.a.y.
You know the feeling where your tummy churns and you need to take every effort to keep your food in. It was like as if I was experiencing air sickness/motion sickness every day. And this is not a very nice feeling.
And because of that I couldn't eat. I had no appetite. I basically could only stomach about one meal a day and that was it. And the rest of the day I felt that my tummy couldn't even digest that one meal.
And so that was how my weight dwindled down from 51.5kg to 48kg.
But I knew this is normal for me as I faced the same problem of morning sickness and weight loss for both my earlier pregnancies with Shern and Khye. I know once this morning sickness is over, I would then get my energy back and eat will like a cow. :)
And it was the school holidays then when the kids were home 24/7. And I nearly fainted when the govt announced an extra week of holiday entension due to the flood.
I am so forever thankful to have my parents and Ah-Yee nearby (as long as they have not fly off to some holiday destination!). They helped me looked after the kids when I felt so tired and overwhelmed.
And my house was in such a mess these days that I gave warning to the hubby not to allow anyone to our house without giving prior warning. lol.
And so today is already Week 12 of my pregnancy, and I am starting to feel a little better.
Little Bun is about the size of a large plum in my tummy and is growing well, with a reassuring strong heartbeat when I heard it 2 days ago.
I also just did my 1st trimester screening and hopefully everything turns out ok.
And so this is it, me being pregnant with baby#3.
I've always wanted 3 babies and now that the number is real and growing in my tummy, I am beginning to feel a little nervous. 3 kids, gulp, who am I kidding?
Ok, take a deep breath and exhale........I can do it.
Hubby. Me. Shern. Khye + Little Bun.
