Preggie @ Week 30

Yeah, I think I should be in week 30 now.  Really lost count for this pregnancy.  I think it’s the second child syndrome and I feel so bad when I come to think of it.  I seldom talk to her, read to her, play music for her and connecting her with Daddy. Even, I started late in taking Spirulina and Calrich. These are Elken products and I took it when I was pregnant with Jonathan. You can really see the goodness in Jonathan that he has good immune system and strong bones.

Pregnant with Jonathan is a lot different from this pregnancy.  Different symptoms.  The heartburn this time round was worst. Until now, I still can’t enjoy my food because it always got stuck in my throat.  I crave for sweet stuff especially canned lychee or rambutans and sea coconut.  In my first trimester, I craved for coffee which was something I dislike. Funny eh… I think I can’t take milk because I feel awful after that.

Different in size too! The tummy this time was rounder and smaller.  My 7 months tummy looks like 6 months tummy of the previous pregnancy. Some aunties say I got a neat tummy and it is definitely a baby girl tummy.

The previous pregnancy, my feet started to swell at 6 months.  My gynae always commented on this everytime I went for my routine check. This pregnancy, although my feet has grown bigger but not swollen yet.

Similarity? ICE! I can’t live without ice. I know, I know it is not good but can you see my suffering? Another similarity is in the baby’s characteristic. This little one is as active as Jonathan. Squirming here and there, telling Mommy that she’s lively. 😛

There is one on-going experiment. I’m taking soya bean milk (with white sugar) almost daily because Jonathan has dark complexion from dunno-who-gene.  And not forgetting bird nest…it really make the baby’s skin soft and smooth.

Aunty-Next-Door took some of this preggie shots for me during Christmas.  It was an unplanned session and so you can see I look quite messy.

    Another drink you can take is the “fu chuk” barley. We are also expecting our second baby, and have similar experience as you with the “second child” syndrome.

    The older one takes up so much of our time, energy and attention that we forget about the baby that’s coming.

    For example, we already prepared clothes, bottles and bed for our first baby when my wife was 4 months pregnant. For second one, we haven’t even plan anything yet.
