I was browsing over recent update of my friends over Facebook, and I came across the page of my childhood best friend who announced that she’s finally pregnant last month. I feel sad though that we’re no longer that close like before. When I read her post, it was a mixed feeling. I feel happy that she’s expecting of course. But I’m sad that communication made our friendship like a second option already. We used to send messages over BBM to check on one another. I hope that she still remember me, because her friendship is one thing I’ll never forget.
Here’s me and her catching up last 2010 while celebrating my big 30. I miss you Ping! I hope that you’ll have a baby girl. Will be looking forward to shop adorable baby girl clothing soon.
Earlier this year, I found out that 3 of my Twitter friends are due the same month when I was still pregnant with Julie. Then came 2nd quarter of this year when 2 of them announces that they are on the way. Maileen for her 2nd baby, and Trinity for her 1st baby. And then yesterday, another one is blessed for the second time, my favorite digital scrapper Diane. We’re all so happy for her and we all pray for a safe pregnancy. There’s one more person we’re all waiting to be blessed, hopefully this year these lovely couple will be blessed soon. Always whispering a prayer for her. It’s ironic how we evolved in Twitter. Twitter babies, coming up. Hooray!
I may say that I’m 90% okay now. I mean the remaining 5% is for the continuous healing after an episiotomy and the other 5% is the postpartum shape that I’m in right now. I did used a maternity band after giving birth, but I guess it’s a different thing now since this is my 2nd child. There’s always a way to stay shape. I’m not that in a hurry. But then again, you can say that I am (somehow) – why? Mainly because all my jeans doesn’t fit right now. Which worries me. Huhuhu! But buying a corset tops like is the last thing on my mind. I’m still wearing my binder. I’ll wear it for a month and let’s see what will happen.
I gave birth already to a bouncing baby girl. We named her Julie just after her sister Julia. Yeah it’s odd. There’s too much letters in the alphabet that we can mixed up to have a name for her but, the moment we found out that we’re bearing another girl, my husband suggested to name her Julie. So be it then…
Born 4th of June 2011 at exactly 10:00PM. Weighing 3kgs. Labored for such a long time. Contractions began at 6:15PM of June 3. But gave birth after almost 29 hours of pain. Normal delivery but no epidural since I was 4cm when we reached the hospital. It was 2cm the night before. But Julie was so in a hurry to come out that once we reached the hospital, the doctor informed me that it’s too late for him to give me pain killers, hence natural birthing method should be done. It was very very and another very painful journey of my life. But Alhamdulillah, thanks God even though I labored for so long, I was able to pushed her out on the 3rd call (or should I say, yell?) hehehe!
Right now, I’m still in the healing process but hopefully will be fully recovered after 2 more days. I thank all my friends and family who left their messages over FB and sent their warm welcomes over Twitter and IG as well.
Before going through some details about www.wholesaleinsurance.net and it’s services offered to it’s client, let me give you some updates re my pregnancy.
I’m currently on my 39th week. I’m exactly 39 weeks and 4 days. No signs of labor. Though I feel a lot of kicking over my abdomen area and some little tickling too. Most of the times whenever I stand up, I feel that there’s a pain from my back going to my legs. But it’ll only last for a minute. I guess it’s just because of the way I sit most of the times. My tummy is so small and I think baby doesn’t have enough space inside, hahaha!
Everything is ready for her home coming. I’ll blog about it as well. And so that’s the update for now.
Yeah, I’ve been away for quite some time. I’m on a nesting mode. We’re looking forward to see our little one. Based on my LMP, my EDD is just 11 days away. I cross my fingers though that it’ll be soon. I can’t wait any longer to see and embrace the new member of our family.
But I’m sad though because FIL will not be here by the time I give birth. And since SIL left, it’ll be MIL and BIL only. All of my SIL are out now.
I have a feeling that I’ll give birth on the 29th – just in time for getting a cash advances for those working in the corporate world.
Before reviewing some medical issues regarding low testosterone symptom, I was going through my EDD the other night. And guess what I found out?
I found out that if I will based my EDD on my last LMP, my EDD will fall on the 2nd of June. Ever since the beginning of my pregnancy, my EDD is really undetermined. My first OB gave me 19th of June. Our 2nd check up back December 2010, during our 3D US back home, the practitioner gave me 13th of June which is based on the head of the baby. Then here whenever I have a check-up with my recent OB, we noticed that it’s always advance 2weeks. So he asked me when was the first day of my LMP. Based on that, the US head size and the weekly count of the baby, it finally matched.
How am I feeling? Not really sure. Excited and at the same time still confused. I’m packed up though. Baby Julie’s bag is ready since last month. I arranged mine last night. 2 of my Twitter friends are due as well next month. We’re praying for an easy and safe delivery for the 3 of us. Insha Allah God willing.
So there. Need to continue reading reviews. I’m way behind my online tasks. Need to catch up fast.
