i've been given the week off because my ankles are swollen to the max. i'm putting my feet up and not doing much work. ok...that's not exactly the truth. i did 3 loads of laundry yesterday, folded them, kept them in the cupboard and went to the store nearby to get the baby's final things. but, i promise...i'll put my feet up (although i do feel like cooking).

tiza gave me a couple of parkson vouchers on monday, so we got a few pairs of clothes for the baby. its not fair that he gets just hand-me-downs, he needs some new clothes as well. we bought some onesies at FOS late last year. they've got some nice new range. the anakku range is the same as when i was pregnant with amir and asyraf, so we didnt have much choice.

as of yesterday, i've ticked off everything in my "to buy" list for baby eai#4. there's one thing pending but i can get that later. i spent the last couple of days settling the changing table and the toileteries, towels and new clothes - all washed, bottles - all ready in the container to be sterilised, diapers, formula and my hospital bag.

externally, i'm huge! amir would always say 'ya allah tuhanku...besarnya perut mummy'. hubby says this is the biggest of all 4...not that that's a good thing. my left thigh is a major pain. its difficult to get up and turn and walk and climb up the stairs. maybe its because i place most of my weight on my left leg when on the lrt or the komuter (ie, i hardly ever get to sit down).

internally, the baby's growing well. on track although a bit off chart with his weight gain. i'm surprised because i do not take dinner. my own weight hasnt moved since my end-week30 check up but the baby's been gaining roughly about 200gms each week. he went up from 1.6kg during my week 30 check up to 2.5kg this week (week 35). he's now filled all the spaces in my tummy - he's in the fetal position now.

my gynae's happy with his developments and she said, mathematically, i can give birth in my 36th week (as amir was born in the 39th week, asyraf in the 38th week and ariff in the 37th week). my next check up is next saturday (unless i see you before that, my gynae stated - trying to scare me). before we left her clinic, she gave me the green letter - admission form.

week 30 scans

week 35 scan

i do hope the baby comes out after that check up. i would like to have the sunday to do my last bit of preparation and hubby and i prefer to welcome the baby on monday. plus amir & asyraf will be having their tests next week, i wouldnt want the hecticness of giving birth to cloud their concentration.

nae / liza...thanks for the wishes.

mar...mmg tak dpt seat langsung! kengkadang org tiba2 tutup mata tapi kelakarnya time sampai stop dia boleh plak tersedar. or sometimes they get so fascinated with the phones macam duit nak kluar. but i can the reflection of ur phone screen lah...hello!! sometimes they also become sooooo nice and offer u a seat, just when they are about to kluar the train. pandai kan. takpe lah...after 4 pregnancies of taking the public transportation, i've seen a lot and i tak kisah dah. but it does hurt...uhukkk. i nak gi jenjalan kat the curve, mana tau dpt ur delivery incident. boleh i dpt baju free kat brands outlet hehehe...

lia...what to do, my work is never done. ada je nak kena buat. ni pun i'm planning my daily laundry till i give birth. i dont want to leave the house with basketful of dirty clothes cos balik from the hospital nanti there'll be more.
