Firstly, I'll have to apologize for not updating my blog for a VERY LONG TIME! I can come up with plenty of "reasons" why but I shall not. I can only blame myself for not pushing hard enough to update my blog. :)
In case you are wondering, I have not given birth yet. This is how big my belly is at 35 weeks. :)
As of now, I'm already in my full term. My Dr told me to just wait for the pain! (I shall just patiently wait for the pain.. *HUMMMM*)
I've had some "scary" moments throughout. My legs were suddenly swollen and I felt like I was walking with a permanent cramp on my right calf. Dr was worried that I may have DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis), so he requested me to rest and wear DVT Stockings to help with the water retention.
These stockings ARE SUPER TIGHT!! My hubby initially helped me with it but he asked me to try wearing it on my own in case I need to wear them when he's not around.
It's definitely not easy to put these socks on. First, I have to cover my legs with lots and lots of powder so that it won't be itchy if I sweat while wearing them. Then, the stockings is VERY TIGHT! I have to use all my might and strength (please don't forget that I do have a big belly to block my way) to pull them up! *HAAAHH* just trying to describe the process of wearing it is tiring. :P
After a few days of wearing them to sleep, my legs are back to its normal size and the "cramp" subsided. The Dr requested to see me 3 days after and he confirmed that it was just water retention. Thank God! :)
He still prefers me to rest at home.So I haven't gone to work for 2 weeks! (I can imagine the work load waiting for me when I get back. Definitely, not going to be easy..)
Throughout my last trimester, I prefer to eat any type of cuisine but Chinese. Yup! I'd rather have Indian, Malay, Thai, Japanese, Western, FAST FOOD.. anything but Chinese. If I'm given the choice!
Of course my favourite remained my favourite... JAPANESE would be on top of the list! :)
Next would be anything SUPER SPICY! YUUUUMMMYYY!
I also have to mention that I also developed a very soft spot for dessert.. you just have to mention cake or ice cream and you'll see my face glowing with joy! :)
Pavlova.. anyone?? MMMMMMmmmm..
Godiva Chocolate Cake! YUMMMY!
(Thanks to one of my bestie, I got to taste this sinful chocolate cake before I give birth!)
You should be *drooling* by now! SLURPPPP!!
(Just by posting these pictures up, I'm craving for some ice cream/cake already. :P )
Oh.. not forgetting, I also love anything that is icy cold!
My current favourite super cold icy drink! Starbucks Toffee Nut Frappucino!
(No worries, I do control the amount of caffeine that I consume.)
We are also preparing for the baby. I've finally packed my labour bag and I took the opportunity to wash baby stuff. Must always take advantage of any super hot weather these days since the weather is unpredictable!
36 pieces of baby napkins out in the sun!
Mittens & Socks!
These things are just so adorable!
and baby needs some "underwear". :P
That's what I've been up to! So, tell me what have you been up to lately? :)
