37 Weeks

My body began to change since CNY. Nose growing bigger, legs getting more swollen, getting lazier and restless, and the worst is acne!  Blame it to the burning hot weather. A bath suppose to be refreshing but ended to be like just came out from a hot spring. Night should be breezing cool but it was the warmest part of the day. Because of that, I had acne all over my body.

Now I just can’t wait for my confinement. Thinking of all those delicious food and 2 months leave. Hope I can get to enjoy my two months maternity leave with minimal disruption from the office and without any annoying calls from my boss and colleagues.  They make it seems that their phone directory only has my number and only I can answer or resolve their issue and only I have the access to the information they want! This is the problem when you do not have someone as your back-up that knows the A – Z of your work.

How is the little one doing? Oh…last week’s scan showed that she refuses to turn her head down!

Doc: Come back next week and if she is still not turning, we will have to schedule for a Caesarean.

Me: So soon? My EDD is 25th. Can’t we wait till there are signs of labour?

Doc: No…by then we have to go for emergency Caesarean.

Me: *Keep quiet. Disappointed*

Since then, I had been praying harder and talking much more to baby. I’m not afraid of C-sect but just want to experience natural birth since I had gone through C-sect the previous time.

Got most of the necessary stuff packed for baby, myself and Jonathan. This time will be having my confinement in hometown and Jonathan will be tagging along. Not too sure if I can cope with the traveling in such condition and having to take care of the baby at the same time.

* Update (one week later): Praise the Lord! Little one is very obedient. She turned!! What a relieved. So now, we just have to wait, wait and wait for signs of labour.

    Oh….don’t be disappointed ok. However and whatever as long as both you and the baby are safe and healthy. God always has our best interest in mind.

    My prayers will be with you. Let us know when you can the good news.

    I travelled back to hometown for boyboy’s confinement. I didn’t enjoy it much given that hubby was not around. But hope your parents will enjoy you and Jonathan and the little girl!!!

    hope the little one turns over soon! the good thing about caesarean is that you don’t have to wonder WHEN you will go into labour.
