Baby moon-ing..

Tmr marks a special day for all of us as this is the first time we are bringing Isa overseas.. and it is to Bintan! Many of you may wonder: Why Bintan?
Well the reason is that my company is having a retreat there and family members are invited! But at a cost definitely. Not too expensive I would say. Anyway.. we are really getting very excited about the trip. I will update the pictures when we are back. We wil be away from 18/04-20/04. Wish me luck!

Btw here are some updates about beanie from the last check up on 14/04.

Beanie @ 23 weeks old: weighs 660gm

Isa @ 24 weeks old: weight 530gm

Connie mama @ 23 weeks preg: put on 7 kg

im halfway there.. @ 22 weeks

The baby now weighs almost one pound/ 430 grams, measures nearly 11 inches/ just over 27 centimetres long from crown to heel, and is proportioned like a newborn, albeit a thinner version since her baby fat hasn't yet developed. Although she's getting heavier every day, her skin still appears wrinkled because she needs to gain more weight. The lips are distinct and the eyes are formed, though the iris (the coloured part of the eye) still lacks pigment. The pancreas, essential in the production of hormones, is developing steadily. Even this early, the first signs of teeth appear in the form of tooth buds beneath the gum line. Before you know it, your baby will be born, and soon after, her first teeth will come through. You've probably gained between 12 and 15 pounds/ 5.4 and 6.8 kilograms. Starting now, you'll begin to put on weight more steadily, averaging about half a pound/ 225 grams per week. You may crave certain foods and you may notice an increased (but not bloody) vaginal discharge. Both are a normal part of being pregnant.

As I cross the halfway mark (40 weeks termed as full term pregnancy), all the pre-birth anxiety starts to hover around my thoughts again.
  • worry if I can have another natural birth again?
  • worry if I need to take epidural or not this time round?
  • worry if Isa will be jealous?
  • worry if big baby can take leave to stay at home to support me emotionally?

all these same old worries.. maybe its an emotional me at work again..

Preparing for school..

so glad to see my little darling so excited about school.
just imagine, he asked to go to school, even on weekends..
ho hum..
but its a dilemma, so should I continue HD or let him try FD at times? cos eventually I should be placing him for FD when we moved back to Sengkang.. besides it seems that the babysitter isnt very happy now that I am going to adjust her fees.

a smile that always makes my day..

how can anyone tahan this smile?
c.h.e.e.k.y. is the only word I always like to use on Isa
and do you agree that Isa looks just like Ray papa in this picture?
ho hum.. *jealous mama at work*

Outing at Botanical Gardens on 290309

first day of school!!

suddenly feel that he is such a big boy..
but today I went back to school and told the supervisor that I request Isa to be placed in the N1 group instead of Playgroup as I felt that the activities in Playgroup were not stimulating enough for Isa. Being an inquisitive child, I just hope that he can be expose to more activities and of course hope that he can learn from the older ones in N1. Hope I am not asking for a lot. Alright call me kiasu but I am definitely more of a Vygosky theory person rather than a Piaget theory person.
