And Baby Makes Six

the notes at the side spoilt my news. before i announced, the annoucement have been made for me. ah well...its ok, small matter.

anyway, it wasnt expected. i was on the pill until may. i missed a month and had my last period in june. i dont even know the exact date as i wasnt keeping track. missed pills got us eai number 4 (we're praying hard for another eai). i was about 4 days late when i bought the tester. hubby said it was a waste of $23, i think he thought i was just ate! i tested late at night, after a can of coke and yet the double line was as obvious as the sun.

so there...another one for the family. we were shocked...extremely shocked. hubby turned to ariff who was crawling on the mattress and started laughing. i was already thinking about a new car.

that was 2 weeks ago, today i had my first checkup. i missed my gynae, who i saw on a monthly basis since 2004 (bar 2005). she wasnt angry - she wasnt too happy when i showed up bearing the news of ariff last year. she said...its ok, you're still young. yeah right...i'm almost 33!

i told her i think i'm about 8 weeks along. she confirmed it when she scanned. we saw the baby's heartbeat. its no longer just a dot, the head and body has formed. my boys 'showed' themselves when they were 13 weeks old - and my gynae confirmed it at 17 weeks. so another 10 weeks before i'm at ease.

since i did my test on 31 july, hubby and i had a lot of talking and planning done. we are changing a few things and we're still keeping other things the same. the car needs to be upgraded, the tv needs to be moved outside but we'll still be maidless and the boys will still attend the same daycare (the teachers were the few first people who found out and they're seriously happy!)

so far, i'm reminded of myself when i was carrying amir. i'm eating a lot - just as i did 4 years ago. i have the occasional nauseas attack and i've thrown up a couple of times but all in all its ok. still energetic, still with appetitie, still not a fan of rice and noodles (be it mi, mihun or kuey teow). some things dont change, at least i know what to expect.

quite a lot of people are quick to go 'oh it must be a girl this time' when i say i threw up but i had throwing up session during my last 3 pregnancies. i'm not excluded from that. but i dont get all sickly and all lembiky. i go to the loo, i throw up, i wash my mouth and i can eat again. its ok...its no biggie...and it happened! so please spare the 'oh its different this time...' comments ye?

hubby and i have, at 10:08am today, decided on the baby's name. i had a whole list prepared but hubby narrowed my choices because he wanted not only an A but also an R in the first name to follow amir, asyraf and ariff. the I came to us earlier this week. ariff is also now known as 'abang adik' by me and i think hubby is slowly using that name too.

so here's to 32 weeks of bliss.


p/s amir, sorry...its not going to be baby afiq.
