We Made It!!

went for my 36 weeks check up on saturday. since its now a weekly check up, we thought it would be better if we went to the clinic on weekends. we got to the hospital at 8 sharp (after leaving the boys with an un-mandi-ed cikgu fatim) and we were already 5th in line. we went to ismail first and came back at 9:30am.

my gynae laughed when i walked into her room. you're still here, she said. yeah...barely! i told her that i feel lighter and the contraction has been less but when they come, its more painful. not surprising, she said, we'll see if you've dilated. i was all prepared. first she check the baby's development and weight. couldnt see much, he seems to have filled every inch of my tummy. the doctor commented that he's very active and is breathing very well (not that i can see from my angle). his weight remains at 2.5kg.

for the fourth time, i have induced myself being at home. the doctor said i'm already 2cm dilated and gave me a massage to start off the labour process. then she announced - next week, confirmed! hubby quickly said, can we make it tuesday? he's planning to do some work today, apply for his 2 days paternity entitlement then take thursday and friday off to complete the week. so its decided and unless i get some signs before (bleeding, constant contraction, the show), we will deliver on tuesday. not a bad date too, 030309.

after the check up we went to get some groceries. i wanted to stock up on my confinement food - cornflakes, cocopops & enough milk for breakfast and beef, chicken and fish that i marinated for my lunch.

my food...

















my drinks...

















good thing we changed our plan from being admitted today. i could use the day to do one last round of laundry, the cleaner could come over to do some thorough cleaning, i managed to pack up the boys' things and i can played the surah al-baqarah cd to 'cleanse' the house.

empty laundry baskets & full load aired...

















the boys' things over the 3 days...

















come tomorrow, we'll be a family of 6 insyaallah...
