Quekling II @36W 5D

Quekling #2 weighs 2.9kg as of yesterday. His heartbeat is strong and yes, he has been rather active, doing his muay thai in the womb. I was handed the hospital admission letter from my gynae and this really signalled that the time is almost ripe! Anytime soon!

Meanwhile, the Mom weighs 59.5kg and has gained a total of 9.5kg as of today. I’m hoping that I won’t cross 12kg since I have only about a few more weeks to go. But it’s really hard to say. I gained a total of 13kg for the last pregnancy and the last 1kg is so difficult to shed. In any case, the bone structure has changed a wee bit since the last pregnancy and I shouldn’t bear much hope in going back to my pre-pregnancy weight.

Things have been moving slowly but steadily in anticipation of his arrival. Recently, we got a second-hand cot and now Quekling II has somewhere to bunk in. For Faith, I managed to do up the room a wee bit but now I cannot be bothered. Poor second child. But I would like to think that it’s the minimalist look that we are going for now. Hah!

Quekling II has a good amount of clothes, thanks to friends and relatives who are so willing to share. Thank God for His provision!

Milk bottles are washed and sterilised. Breastpump is in working condition. Yay! I just need to pack the hospital bag next. But this time round, I won’t be packing much. From previous experience, I didn’t even use half of what I brought. This time round, I would be packing:

– Admission letter from gynae
– Slippers and warm socks
– Comfortable clothes to go home in
– Mobile phone and charger
– Nursing bras
– Breast pads
– Maternity pads
– Disposable undies
– Newborn nappies
– Baby clothes, booties and mittens
– Baby blanket
– wallet

And my loot arrived! I must remember to recuperate and rejuvenate well. The confinement period is crucial and it will affect me when I grow older (I believe). I’m hoping that pigmentation won’t surface ( it didn’t for the last pregnancy, thank God!). #vainpot

I’m quite excited to use the toning cream and cellulite cream. I have used the MK range for my face and it has served me well. So I hope the body range will be superb too. But I must remember to be consistent in the usage, as with all things.

A few more weeks to go!
