My latest fashion statement... I love to be in the basket and luckily I'm diaperless now. Those old days they used this basket to gather my soiled napkins and cloth diapers... Eeww... but now, No More!!!
Baby's weight : Unknown... since no scanning done for this visit but will visit gynea again next week.
Mummy feels tummy becomes heavier and suddenly grows bigger than ever. No increase appetite or craving for a particular food but snacking quite often. Still knit like crazy, it's like competing with time now... will post about the knitted baby's garments later. Mummy even feel it's unfair to knit so many stuff for No.2... so today started to knit a vest for En En. Hopefully will complete it before baby No.2 pops! :)
Completed this wool soaker today, it takes 3 days to finish.
Legs seems to be swollen abit and fingers are quite tense and painful when it's late evening. So, will slow down on knitting coz MIL reminded that if knit too frequent without any exercises to the arms and upper body, it will be very easy to get painful and tired arms. Mummy only concern is whether it will affect breastfeeding coz will need to carry baby most of the time... unless... mummy masters Lying Down position. Hmm... will get advise from lactation nurses in Adventist Hosp later.
Already packed the hospital bags... arrange the cabinets for En En by transforming the toys rack into her new clothes rack... En En will be back from Po Po's house in Alor Star tomorrow as she already stayed there for 10days. That's why mummy got time to do so many things...
And also the cloth diapers stash been rearranged and looks neater in the cabinet now...
Oh ya... mummy will be going back to Alor Star for confinement. En En maybe following too but depends coz maybe she will travel withh daddy 2 weeks in Penang and 2 weeks in Alor Star. Let's see who can handle her later...

Remember a post titled "Mummy whacked the little butt"? We still have this episode on every few alternate days and apparently En En was crying and screaming for no reason! Be it daytime, night time or mid-night!!! Lately, she wants Ah Mah madly and refuse to let daddy and mummy get into the bedroom with her! This is really too much... but we still have to distract her with lots of stories, new ideas in order for her to forget about what she was demanding previouesly. Otherwise, everyone of us don't have to sleep! Ah Mah said becasue En En is jealous with No.2 inside mummy's tummy and she doesn't feel mummy loves her so she picks Ah Mah to accompany her. Mummy tried so many things to get close to her and never whack her or scold her (since No.2 will cramps inside the tummy and kicks mummy when mummy feels angry or irritated), but still she chose Ah Mah! So heartache...
Back to potty train, En En is diaperless during daytime and during nap. Mummy is so amaze about her strong bladder control, or perhaps she has bigger bladder?? She can go all dry at night for 5-8 hours! That's so amazing and mummy only use 1-2 modern cloth diaper for the whole night till next morning. Before this, she will refuse to wear any diaper and wake up at midnight to pee with mummy's help. Ever since mummy tummy got bigger and she requests and cries for Ah Mah to come over to put her on potty at midnight as she refuses to come doen from the bed... we decided to let her to stay in the diaper at night. Mummy felt so bad as we already trained her to have the awareness to pee at night and she's able to tell us to wee wee during her sleep, we consider that as a very good improvement. But seeing that she has this ridiculous request and screaming for Ah Mah at midnight, we have no choice to turn a deaf ear when she murmur at midnight. Feel so so so bad, but if mummy or daddy offer to help her to the potty at midnight, she will starts crying and screaming till Ah Mah comes and by then everyone in the house will be awaken! So, if you are in mummy's shoe.. what will you do??

Also DIY nursing cover, I have 2 of them. Thanks alot to my mum... there are so many wonderful items can be made if only I know how to sew... :P
For baby garment:
Completed knitting 3 wool longies and one baby vest...
Knitting in progress:
1) Another wool longies size M/L - 85% completed
2) Baby hoodie/cardigan - 80% completed
3) Baby hat
4) Toddler simple kimono - 55% completed but am afraid not enough yarn...
5) A cable vest for myself - guess this one will drag and on hold after No.2 comes out...
Just rememebr I got to clear the room's cabinet and wardrobe to make space for baby clothes and napkin. Limited space need a nice arrangement and clean up... that's why I'm so pack at this moment...
Oh ya... today I started to feel the belly tighten up, looks like baby is growing and the belly starts to expand. Got to monitor any extra stretch mark now...

Mummy's weight: 77kg
Baby's weight : 1.965kg
(gynea said baby will grow very fast during the last month, probably will hit 3kg by the time for delivery.... true?)
Alright, mummy already banned coffee since earlier last month in the fear of having a lower weight baby and will be very caution about every food intake. Luckily this time no constipation issue, much more better than last pregnancy.
Still rushing to knit the baby cardigan and hopefully ready before due. Can't believe I have so many things to do before baby arriving... Next task will be thinking of what to pack for the hospital bag.
