School Activity Update

Hello every one, i know i keep promising that i will b regular at posting some thing or an other but then i vanish like i never existed. once again i apologize. i know a lot of you have probably given up on me by now, i am not gonna make any more promises, ill just post when and as i can.
So a lil update on my life, my 2.5 years old has been taking up most of my time and so are her school activities. January they had an annual sports day, not that these lil kids actually did races or any thing but they had lil activities tat they did along with their teachers, it was super cute IMG_20160130_161506

I didn’t take too many pics coz off-course i was busy making videos of all the activities my lil doll was doing. i know i could get hold of the pics form the school’s website but i just had to CATCH the moment 😀
Once that was done n over with the school started preparing so the annual concert/function day. my Daughter’s class was acting on the nursery rhyme down by the bay and it was funny to watch her trying to sing it all day long hehe kids are too cute that way 😀

After all the acts, all the pre-nursery to Class 1 kids participated in a final song. so every one got to b on the stage at once:)
I so encourage kids to take part in such school activities coz i feel these things encourages kids to be independent and proactive also it brings out their artistic side and a feeling of belonging to the institute. i grew up taking part in all extra activities in the school and i am hoping to support my kids in doing the same.

I know this is not like my regular post but hey am a mommy now so there will be kids updates on and off which i am sure atleast the mommy followers will enjoy and would be able to relate to 😀

So how do you bring out the artistic/active side of ur kids? do let me know 🙂
Untill next time,

Take goood care of ur selves
Love you alll

Crash Landing!!! and totally Loving it :D

Hello all

Just thought to update my blog, now that i finally got some time i can write a few updates on my baby 🙂
My baby couldn’t wait any longer and wanted to experience the world as soon as she could so she did a crash landing on 26th Aug, a Preemie by 6 weeks weighing only 1.5kg yet had to b pulled by forceps coz i stopped contracting at the last minute n her heartbeat started to faint (dats extended my Episiotomy) OUCH. God Bless Epidural i didn’t feel any thing otherwise lol i dunno wat i wud have done, She was a flat baby n needed artificial respiration to kick start n finally cried after 10 scary minutes (i was holding my heart in my mouth it seemed till the time i waited to hear her cry).
We both were in hospital for 9 days recovering n finally on 4th Sep we came home. Because she is a preemie there is alot of work and care i have to do :))) but i am loving it. like totally, even though i might b sleep deprived and prolly haven’t showered in a day (trust me dats huge for me) but when i look at her face i forget every thing. as long as she is recovering and getting better, i forget about my millions of stitches and my pain and My any thing :)) guess dats being a mother? 🙂

 I wont b uploading her pics for now but just a lil glimpse of my lil bundle of joy.

Image

Thank god i had done most of my shopping earlier but 90% of her cloths are like huge on her, shes literally swimming in them, so finally day before i went n got a few preemie cloths n socks n caps.
Now my routine is doing a temperature control for her, keeping her warm yet not let her heat up, giving her milk every hour coz the doc said she cannot digest more for now so go easy. well every hour means 8 minutes of feeding, 15 minutes of burping, and 10 minutes of waking her up and changing diaper. dat leaves me wid half n hour in between for gettin her next feed ready, or going to the bathroom, or washing n sanitizing her bottles or eating or sleeping or….. basically any n every thing else in the world lol

We Named her Tanisha, it means Happiness and also “Born on Monday” in African american which coincidentally really worked well  as she was born on a Monday 😀 hehe sHe luks like her dad more for now, but i am really happy coz i think she has curly hair. (atleast one attribute is mine) 😛 i always wanted a baby girl who wud luk like her dad, but have curly hair, seems like my wish did come true 😀

ImageDo u spot curls? 😀 or am i just imaging lol?

I do plan on writing all about my labor time so any one not interested can ignore my next post :))))

Reflux, heartburn & a few updates

Just last week i wrote a post about my preggy update
Today all i will talk about is another major symptom of 3rd trimester that’s bugging me and killing me like any thing.

Image Our very own HEARTBURN lol 

I never had an idea about what heartburn is untill now, n trust me its nothing one can enjoy. i’ve gotten so sensitive that even a lil fatty or oily or spicy stuff (i dont usually have spicy even generally) and my entire internals are boiling and burning. on top of that, the Reflux is getting really bad.

Last night i woke up coz i felt almost chocked in my throat with a weird burning acidic feeling and feeling so sumthing stuck in my chest. it was soo uncomfortable. i tried to elevate my pillows n stay on my left side so it may get better, but no such luck. on top of that, entire day today my throat felt that yucky acidic feeling arghhhh so not happy about it. but then again i keep telling my self that its just two months more and things might just get better. For now Gavescon syrup is the rescue, dat too dosnt help at times 😦
I think i need to shift to a total bland food for two months. May b dat wud help the burning n heart burn.
ImageUPDATES on my lil one
Well the baby has been clustered on the right side, which makes it almost impossible for me to sleep on the right, i get good kicks lol, Rest is all good, lil one loves to make pyramids on my tummy eehehehehe, its such a funny sight n hubby freaks out lol
by pyramid i mean the baby puts up its butt against my tummy wall n it stretches out so much that it almost luks like a pyramid/ sand dune hehehhehee
All in all loving every single minute of this time. (apart from the heartburn n refluxes n itching) 😛 hope it all gets better soon, or atleast gets bearable. 🙂

Hope u all are well n i hope to catch up with every one real soon 🙂
till then take good care of ur selves

Hugsssssssssssssss

Preggy Updates

Image

I have been thinking to write some thing about my  pregnancy for soo long but have been either busy or lazy or just lay off laptop. i know i said i will write updates and this and that, n but honestly most of the days i don’t even feel like sitting on net, i’d just check emails from my cell n that’s about good for me.  So finally i gathered enough will to write atleast some thing hehe

To begin with no matter how much i wanted to get pregnant i had NO idea this is what i will have to go through. you must be thinking am talking about all the symptoms women usually crib about but i was seriously lucky to not go through most of them. for instance i had absolutely no morning sickness, nausea or any of this first trimester monsters that most women dread about. i was eating n sleeping fine, infact if my Mom in law wudnt tell me to be careful and rest i’d forget half of the times that i am even pregnant lol
First trimester went by like the blink of an eye. Second trimester definitely brought some symptoms like the sciatic pain in my right leg (Oh god it was bad), itchiness and feeling hot as hell was. and then came a time when i cudnt even eat an egg for breakfast coz i wud instantly break into sweat for the rest of the day. so no more eggs for me for breakfast, i shifted to butter n bread only to realize that the burning sensation i get in my left chest is not my gall bladder instead is a heartburn LOL initially i thought i had gall stones lol. also i know i would have to get new cloths for my self just wasn’t sure when until this happened 😛
ImageSo i got my self some loose shirts made from tailor that i could wear n be comfortable in without feeling too much itchy n hot.

Now 30 weeks past, sitting in my 3rd trimester the symptoms i feel are itchiness (LOADS OF IT), feeling hot, heartburn and at times a little difficulty in sleeping especially when my lil one is sitting on one side.

Well the reason i thought of writing this post today was to share the great news that i finally went shopping

Image

I had been wanting to start shopping right after my 3rd month but i wanted to wait a lil longer, just to be sure, just to be on a safer side n just till i am sure of what colors i wanna get. That too took way too longer then i expected coz every time i’d go for an ultrasound the baby’s position wasnt “favorable” as i was told. It was a relief when finally i found out, but for every one else, they gotta wait till the baby is finally here 😀 that shall be another happy post on my blog, i dont promise an instant posting since i dunno how my routine will get but will make sure i announce it as soon as i can.

Image

During the last two months i also attended stitching classes, just thought an added skill wont hurt, it was only 8 classes crash course n i sorta learnt the basics of how to do pants and a simple shirt. not that i plan to make baby cloths but I had always wanted to learn stitching and this seemed like the perfect time to keep my mind off my self and get busy with some thing constructive. I do need alot more practice but i’;ve gotten the ropes so yayyy

Finally came the shopping days 😀 First i had gone with my mom in law to just chk out things and prices, then i went n got cloths, loads of them,even though every one tells me they get wasted coz baby grows outta it, but how can u resist those adorable lil cloths n body suits now can u???? (A).

I love the fact of how organized i am lol. Like even when i was getting married i had boughts my cloth atleast 4 months ahead of time and gotten them stitched when i still had 2 months left. I like to keep prepared before time, i hate to run around in a rush, and forget impt things in process

ImageSo while i had nothing else to do, i made a list of times i will need categorizing them into bedding, bathing, grooming, cloths, traveling and additional accessories. and i listed things under each category that i wanted with the amount of each item i will need. This way when i went shopping all i did was chk out every item i would get and in the end i had a clear picture of what all is left.I got most accessories like cloths n blankets, wrapping sheets, nail clippers etc., will get bigger stuff like crib n baby stuff drawers n car seat n other things like those, start of 9th month.

Image

As the time is passing now, am getting more n more excited, tired and impatient. I cannot wait to have my lil one in my arms, get off all the irritating symptoms and feel normal again, ready to begin a new chapter of life but at the same time i am really enjoying this time that i have while the baby is still in there. I love watching its movements and kicks and at times we play games too, our fav for now is knock n respond hehe i knock n the baby responds. So now that am mostly done wid my shopping and most things on my agenda list, i am going to sit back and enjoy this one month before i begin shopping for big items. For now i shall drink alot of water, milk and sleep as much as i can . 🙂

I honestly have no idea when i will write a post again but i think i have covered almost every thing in this one till now. So till you guys get a new update from me, enjoy this post n keep praying for all to go well for me & my lil one 🙂

Sushi Treat

Hello all
Just thot to post sumthing since it seems like ages

Today (10th July 2013) me n hubby made a random plan for sushi
Since I cannot have raw meat right now I ordered for cucumber sushi, while hubby ordered for cucumber sushi, tuna sushi n volcano sushi for trial dat was made of salmon, eel sauce n mayo topped wid crushed shrimp crackers.
Cucumber n tuna sushi came first in the platter but we were too hungry to wait for a pic of platter so I just took pics of wat all I cud hehe

Image

Didnt take any pic of tuna sushi but I just had to take the pic of the volcano sushi wen it arrived….. it was hugeeeee
Image

Since there was mayo in it as well it turned out pretty heavy. Outta 8 pieces Hubby could only finish 5

But I wanted to eat more n only Cucumber sushi wasn’t enough for my hungry belly I ended up ordering Chicken Taypanyaki wid garlic rice
Oooo wat a bliss I ate like I had been hungry for ages lol

Image

Image

Stuffed and satisfied wid out food, we headed to the ground floor after paying the bill only to b called back from half way for our complimentary fried ice cream dat was ready on our table. I dunno why we got a complimentary ice cream but who cares
It was pretty good, only if we had more space in our sinfully stuffed tummies, we wud have finished it all, but couldn’t lol
Image

Over all, it was a good outing n we really enjoyed ourselves. 😀

Run Down Event Updates

Image

Helloo Allll

i figured if i start writing every event that i wanna share in flowery tone n details and what not i might never be able to get to the end of it, so instead i will just do a simple run down with may b dates and events and a lil comment about it so that i can get over with it, not that its gonna b too much fun any more that way n with no pictures, but i guess that’s the best way possible for now. Otherwise the LAZY ME will never get on with it. So here i am breaking the ice!!!

10th January: Hubby n I came back from Thailand (our long awaited Honeymoon trip of 10 days), over all it was amazing, plus my best friend lives there so was a good reunion too, had a lovely time there, also had a 2 nights 3 days short visit to Pattaya. Simply loved it 🙂

12-15th January: Attended my friend’s wedding here, was the main reason to come back to early otherwise i prolly wud have stayed back with my friend and hubby cud have come back for his work, but i guess every thing happens for a reason and am glad i came back with hubby 🙂

27th January: I found out the best news of my life, the news i had been waiting for, for sooo long 😀 YES i am pregnant 😀 yayyy feels good to finally let it out on my blog here hehe. Hence it was nice i came back with hubby, he was the happiest on the news offcourse, so were my family n in-laws  Actually on 26th i just did a random test and i was sooo sure it wud be just one line and i thot to my self fine i will do it, not like am preggy, but when i saw a faint line i FREAKED out, i instantly took the pic of the strip n sent it to my best friend (god bless whatsapp) and she called and asked me to take another test which i did and the line was much clearer. but i wasn’t gonna get my hopes high, so on 27th i went with my mom in law (since we live with her) n got my blood test done in the morning. I came back from the clinic n then broke the news to Hubby that I think ur gonna be a daddy 🙂 i chked the result online at 3pm and it confirmed i was very much Pregnant. LOL now that i let it out here, i wanna keep writing it again n again lol (crazy excited me)

17th February: I had started to feel that i couldn’t take care of Coffee, (for new readers) the new poodle pup i had gotten in July 2012. I would still have to leash her every time i took her out for a pee and she wud wanna run and resist, the pulls started to give me strain and pressure in my abdomen and i knew with time i will totally not be able to take care of her, and hubby is mostly busy at work, so i cant expect him to be available for her walk around needs, so i had to take a decision and on 17th Feb i sold her, hoping she wud have a good life and will be taken good care of, since the guy who got her was all happy and stuff. so with a heavy heart i let her go. but the good thing was that she just went away, well in a way it was weird coz she didn’t even stop to look back she was all too happy to be going. good it was coz i knew she wud adjust there and wont have a problem  sad coz it made me feel that i still haven’t been able to make her MY DOG. Hubby had a big face made for 2 days coz he was too sad and wanted to keep her but i knew he will not be able to take responsibility as needed with time and it was best to let her go

3rd March: My doc told me that i really need to rest and take things easy, coz i kept feeling heavy and crampy and she said its not good. so i had some good long bed rest, Kept going to shops for various things on n off but mostly was trying to take things easy. LOL cant help it i am a restless soul 😛

21st March: i hadn’t told my gang till now, n it was getting frustrating, i wanted to just shout out my news, am not the person ti keep my happiness to my self but like every one says let the 3 months pass, let the risky time go and wat not, so by now I couldn’t hold the news any long and just HAD to share it with my gang so on 21st i arranged a dinner at my place, called my gang of 8 couples, after the dinner while the girls were collecting plates n clearing the table “Hibs” told me how she and “Nom” talked on their way to our place n guessed y i had called all on dinner, she said i said mayb she is expecting, or mayb her hubby got a promotion (they forgot my hubby works for himself so there’s no point of promotion :P) , i just looked at her smiled and said hey cant i call u all for dinner without any reason? 😛 hehehhe. Later all settled on sofas and i finally broke the news to “Natz” who had predicted last year that this year all of us will get preggy. so i told her dude ur prediction is true. and told “Hibs” ur discussion in the car was right, n then i started to blush lol. i swear it was totally unintentional. Hearing this Ana, K and M also jumped with happiness and they all congratulated me. The guys congratulated my hubby. It finally felt good to tell them and not have to lie why i am not making any plans or getting tired every time i go to their place and have my back aches and what not hehhee, i could finally b open to them 🙂 the girls screamed and danced and started going crazy about how they wanna arrange my baby shower lol i tell u they are some real crazy girls, n i love them to bits :)))

20th April: The guy who took Coffee called and informed that she expired 2 days back. had a slight accident in their store, where she was with his wife and some thing fell from the top shelf and broke her jaw. he took her to the hospital and the doc started to operate but she cudnt make it and died on the table. 😥 After hearing this i was furious with the guy that he cudnt take care of her n all. i was too sad, but later i also thought, now i might be selfish here but i thought that If she had to go at this time anyways am kinnda glad she was not in front of me, Coz i wudnt have had been able to deal with it especially with my slightly high rick pregnancy. 😦 May she rest in peace. I will always love her, I would attach her pic here for new readers but am still not able to see her pics, it still hurts. so those who don’t know about her can just scroll in my blog and see my pretty lil coffee cake. 🙂

27th April: Today i finally thot its about time that i share stuff otherwise i will keep sitting and before i know it it will be the end of this year. Now i will also start my preggy updates so those who are not much eager about it IF i mean may ignore it 🙂 Up till now i have been writing an every day diary of wat i eat, what i feel, symptoms, and any movements and wat i felt about them.my doc appointments and what meds she told me when, and when i had my ultrasounds, how my weight is going and stuff like that just so i keep an over all record, and also will may b telly it with my next pregnancy if needed. 🙂

Aaaah 🙂 Finally I can start from every day stuff i hope i don’t lazy out now 🙂 Hope u all enjoy my run down post. Keep coming back for more

love u allll n big hugssssssss
