Guess who's coming to dinner..

On our last check up, Bumpkin has grown heavier, right up to the doctor's cut off weight for normal delivery. And so after a LOOOONNNGGG discussion with a little bit of tears on my side, we are going to for a scheduled window opening (aka c-section). Had my last jalan-jalan and dinner last night before officially becoming parents.

Couldn't really sleep last night and kept staring at the crib next to me. *Gulp*, soon that space will be occupied (hopefully by Bumpkin and not her toys .. will try the hardest to be disciplined and let her sleep in the crib..)

So later in the afternoon, we'll be seeing our precious Bumpkin!

Praying for a swift procedure, small incision and most importantly, our baby's health.

Random thoughts..

While waiting to see the doc.

- The tummy makes for a fantastic hand rest.
- Tummy can also double up as cup holder.
- Must remove cup immediately when Bumpkin starts to move frantically, unless you don’t mind spilling water on the already stretched out t-shirt.


Bumpkin has maintained her weight and she’s still floating around, i.e. the head is not engaged yet, so no baby yet, and there’s a great chance that I won’t go into labour till next week.

To conclude, I’ll still have my hand rest and “round” table to use as I please.

I am now a furniture.

Big baby and me

Over the weekend we caught the purple dinosaur show. Yes, we went to the Barney show, for the benefit of Bumpkin (or so I thought) .. but, in the end, it was more so for the big baby, i.e. Homer.

He was raving about Barney after the show, “I understand why the kids love him! (or is it her?).. Barney doesn’t insult the kids’ intelligence”, probably more like he doesn’t insult Homer’s intelligence. I can see it now, Bumpkin sitting in front of the TV watching Barney videos with Homer pretending that he is Barney.

On other news, we found out that Bumpkin’s estimated weight is 3.5 kg! Which means I have to brace myself for a C-section since the doctor believes that I am too small (short) to deliver Bumpkin normally if she keeps on packing the weight.

Any tips on keeping Bumpkin’s weight as it is?

Sign number 6

that I’m losing it..

Super Lawyer Gal called me this morning asking for one of our girlfriends phone number. I frantically searched for my mobile, tossing the cushions on the sofa to the floor, while screaming, “Where’s my phone??? Can’t find my phone!!”.

Then it struck me, I was holding it against my ear!

Yes.. I am STILL pregnant and have overstuffed myself during raya. It’s a wonder how my belly can expand to accommodate Bumpkin (whom according to the weekly email updates, is packing on fat under her skin, gaining an ounce a day till D-day) and the lemang, lontong, nasi dagang, cookies and cakes that I’ve devoured.

Selamat Hari Raya !

Just remember that however full and overstuffed you feel, you can’t beat me.. paint me purple and I’d almost look like Barney!
