Counting Down

I am now in my 35th week.

Baby boy's blooming and dancing all the time under Mommy's belly.

Did my checkup yesterday and kinda "saw" the baby's face. A round little pumpkin. Oooh... can't wait to see him for real and hold him and smell him. Ahhhh...

He has this "bad habit" of stretching and sticking his legs into my ribs at night, which is making it quite hard to sleep.
There were also these 2 times I jumped up from my sleep with water squirting up my nose from my stomach (had taken a gulp of water after a toilet visit middle of the night). He must have kicked me in the gut. This was worse than any heartburn.

Plus I still have this constant pain on my left hip joint (got a nerve pinched there).
So every night Gadget-daddy, busy click-clacking away on the computer has to put up with my groaning while I try to stretched out on the bed and relieve some pain.

Today I packed my hospital bag.
- a set of long romper for the baby and a towel to wrap him in.
- my necessities
- a food container with some 3-in-1 Milo, a set of cutlery. Need to get some biscuits.

Of late I have been feeling like this one's gonna do some dramatic entry into the world.
Both my older boys were late (Micah-9 days, Max- 4days), but this one can't seem to wait to want to get out.

So I am getting ready.

The only thing I did not manage to do today was to go through a huge bag of babies hand-me-downs from my sister. Have to sort our and wash them.

I also have to get myself some new nursing bras and diapers for the baby.
Must remember to give Mil and my mom money to buy ginger and sesame oil.

Other than that I think we are ready for the new one as most of the stuff, i.e. cot, bath tub, changing mat, we have from Micah's time.

Oh, just can't wait to see this little one's face... and then maybe can decide on a name for him!

It's getting so close now, and I can't wait to 'meet' your new little one.

Sounds like you are doing well..and your relaxed preparations sound very much like a 3rd rather than 1st time pregnancy LOL

JLow said...

Yeah, we are looking forward too!

Caitlin loves to just watch babies, and she will be watching (out)!


Ann said...

Ask Gadget Daddy to let us know please....want to visit mummy and the little one.

I cant wait to see those lovely photos of a newborn. Hehe!

Moomykin said...


yeah... still not confirm on the name though...

Just can't decide yet.



I am sure when the baby arrives I'll be needing some refresher's course on many things as Max is already three.

Moomykin said...




Yes, we will definitely let you guys know as soon the little darling is out and ready for his introduction to the world.

Moomykin said...

Our journeys,

Yes, dropped by you "place".

First time pregnancy, we were really groping in the dark. So now a lot more in the know of things.

Moomykin said...


Yeah... will keep an update on that. Might just get my hubby to post up pictures for me.
