My second pregnancy

i think it's high time i should sum up about my current being for the past 9 months. Pregnant encore.
i confirmed my suspicion of conceiving baby number 2 when my POA ( period of amennorhea) was about 5 week +

25th january 2012 pic taken at 8.15 am in the mo oncall room :) 
it's a mixed feeling all over again. is it too soon? are we ready for family member number four? but very excited all the same !

this pregnancy , i feel a bit different compared to the previous one. within the first trimester I was nauseous almost everyday and had two emetic episodes ( I had none when I was with Harris). 2nd trimester, I was easily breathless by 21st week.NYHA class 2 gradually escalated to 3 overtime  i supposed.  diaphragmatic splinting was rather early.

Baby started kicking at about 17 weeks. more or less the same like the first one in term of timing.

On-calls ( though never exceeded 5 per month ) were so tiring and by 30th week and above it had begun to take its toll on my well being significantly. I stopped doing calls by 32 weeks.the Post call  effect during the  last on-call i did was horrible. I could barely walk, gasping for air and every muscle attached to my bones was aching. 

Legs cramp was ( still is) a norm in the morning. really torturing. Couldn't lie on my back for more than 30 seconds due to the pressure effect on the lumbar vertebrae.

baby began to drop down by 33 week. therefore I could breathe better after that! but then the urinary frequency and stress incontinence worsens.

I did antenatal sonography for 6 times already so far. the last one was a 3D scan at KSH ( 6,11,17,24,30, 32 week) - well, there is no need for  such  frequent scans really ( once every trimester would suffice) but i just wanna have a peep at my baby ;-)

Braxton Hicks contractions began at about 33th week.

now at 35 week plus, fundal height correlates  well with gestational age, baby is in cephalic presentation, already 1/5th engaged , fetal limbs facing right, spine on the left. Sometimes, baby is kicking so hard that her fetal parts are visible and palpable  per abdomen.

I hope everything would turn out well. Mommy is soo looking forward to meet you in a month time little b ;) muahx

getting on my nerve

haiihh. you think you are the elitists. when you are just simply  hard core supporters like those on the other side. when people commented against your ridiculous generalisation about something, you said they are already non salvageable and not up to par to your level of thinking in debating such matters.
you  think you know politics like the back of your hands?  then think again. because from most of this bunch of self claimed elitists' written statements , all I can deduct is, you are exactly as shortsighted as those you go against if not worse.  basically, you are blinded by your political belief to see reasoning even if you are plainly at fault.
yeah, i have been patient too long and  now  have gotten too annoyed to ignore when they keep on posting stupid and illogical statuses.

salam o dear valued guests of blog bliss.

Ramadhan mubarak to those who are observing it . May this month bring us enormous and unexpected blessings inshaallah.

blessed life. do we live one? Only God knows. when you are tried with crisis you began to question whether this is merely a trial or it's a sign that your life is not blessed? perhaps because of your previous deeds. i have no answer to that.  but one thing i'm sure of, we should turn to God nevertheless,regardless  which one is the cause :)
