I felt like I haven’t felt my baby the entire morning. Then, in the afternoon, I felt melon baller movements — similar to what I had between 18-20 weeks. Somehow, I was expecting our boy to move and I’d see him protruding in my belly but that wasn’t the case the entire day. Also, the… Continue reading Paranoia strikes again!
I’ve read about soon-to-be-mums getting less and less sleep as their pregnant bellies grow. I’ve had friends who have had back pains since their 21st week and was not able to get a good night’s sleep until…well…until now because they’ve given birth already and we know how chaotic but fulfilling that experience will be! 🙂… Continue reading Sleeping well?
I am almost there (I’d like to think this way!). I’m currently 35w5d and I want to share my crazy and embarrassing pregnancy symptoms. I don’t know if I’ll get more but so far, here’s my list: ● Bloating and farting in the evening – Yes, in my first trimester, this was THE most embarrassing… Continue reading Crazy and embarrassing pregnancy symptoms
Last week, the nurse and doctor have started being concerned about my blood pressure (140/80 after 15 mins of rest then 125/80 after another 15 minutes) and today, it’s a bit higher (145/90 after 15 mins of rest then 134/77 after another 15 minutes).

I am down with the worst runny nose and cough I’ve had in years! The… Continue reading Sick at 34 weeks!
I’m giving birth in one of Hong Kong’s public hospitals and this requires me to have my antenatal check up at the Maternal and Child Health Centres (MCHC). I have a wonderful doctor in the private sector but I just can’t afford to pay about HK$100,000 for my delivery! I’ve applied for insurance that covers… Continue reading Hospitals, blood pressure and fetal movement at 33 weeks
I notice that my baby boy has hiccups at least once a day. Sometimes twice or thrice and yesterday, four times. I’ve been googling like crazy and based on what I have been reading, it’s normal. I first noticed his hiccups on December 1 for 10 minutes, 5AM to 5:10AM. I checked the time because… Continue reading Is your heart pounding hard or are they rhythmic movements in your belly?
