I will be 34 weeks pregnant tomorrow. The Braxton Hicks contractions and tightenings on my uterus are getting more intense and frequent. This little babe has been giving me lots of strong and painful kicks too. She weighed 2.2kg on Monday. My weight is 53kg (increase of 9kg) and has not been going up for the last few weeks.
I’ve not bought anything for the baby yet and I don’t think I need to buy much clothing for this baby as there is a big load of hand-me-downs previously worn by Alycia and Sherilyn that the baby can wear. In fact, I don’t think I need to buy any clothes for this baby as she has more than she needs from her 2 cheh chehs. But knowing myself, I know I will surely not be able to resisit from buying cute baby clothes if I see them when I go shopping. All I need to buy now are some diapers for newborn babies and that’s about it. My brother who stays in Singapore has already bought me some 4 ounces Avent baby bottles.
People say that when you are expecting your first child, you get all excited and keep buying clothes and stuff for the baby. Most of the baby things are brand new. You talk and sing to your baby all the time whilst she is still in your tummy. With baby number 2, your excitement is not as intense as when you’re expecting your first baby and with the third and subsequent babies, you feel blasé throughout your pregnancy and there is very little preparation for the arrival of the baby. Well, it’s just so true. I feel really guilty and bad that I hardly have the time to talk to this baby.
I hope this baby will turn out to have a good temperament. I’ve been yelling a lot at the gals throughout my pregnancy and I really hope that this baby won’t inherit mummy’s horrible and short temper and impatience.
