1 weeks past and I am still visiting Dr Chan at his clinic. Water level is alright but the he say my muscle wall is not strong. Not sure what it means though. BB still enjoying herself in the tummy. Current weight is 54kg. Had gained another kilogram since the last week.
Dr Chan had asked whether want to induce or to wait for the baby to choose the date to come out. I am very tempted to opt for the induce but decided against, decided to wait for the time that baby want to come out.
If the baby doesn't want to come out after the due date. Then I will go for induce. Since it's only 1 week to go.. and a torturing week. Having backache and tiredness and everything.
Approximately 38 weeks pregnant and it’s my 11th visit to the gynae. I had gained another 1kg within the 1 week. Current weight is 53.4kg. With the baby putting on weight, it’s getting more tiring to carry the baby around. Hubby asked about the weight of the baby but Dr Chan say can’t tell. Have to wait till the baby’s out then will know.
Everyone is saying my tummy had gone down already. Now, only waiting for the baby to come out but it seems that she is enjoying herself in the womb that she doesn’t want to come out till full term. But mummy wished that she could come out anytime. Hehe
I had also packed the bag to be brought along to the hospital. Inside the bag are 2 sets of clothes for my stay in the hospital. Not bringing any extra toiletries as they did provide it in the hospital. Not forgetting the camera to be charged and had to remind myself to bring along the phone charger as I knew that the phone would be busy.
We had finally settled on the name and well I would disclose the name and the meaning of the name when the baby is out. keke
Next visit to the gynae will be 1 week later but I hope that I could see the gynae at the hospital this week instead at the clinic. hehe
As our internet connection was down for awhile, I was not able to surf and blog. Even after the connection was back to normal, I could not help but feel sleepy whenever I wanted to use the laptop.
9th Prenatal Visit on 17th July 2009
Mummy’s weight: 51kg
Baby’s weight: 2303g
Dr Chan said that still got at least 2 and a half weeks to go. That seems like so long to me. Dr Chan measured the water and say everything is alright. He asked me what picture I wanted of the baby but I did not have any idea so he printed out the backbone instead. keke
Next visit is to be 2 weeks later.
10th Prenatal Visit on 1st August 2009
It’s time for my prenatal visit again. I had gained another 1.5kg within 2 weeks. Dr Chan told us that he will not be in Singapore from 9th August till 16th August. As the previous 2 birth was always early by 1 to 2 weeks, so now we had to wait and see when the baby want to come out and if the baby intends to come out when Dr Chan wasn’t in Singapore, his brother will be delivering for me.
So coincident that he will not be around in Singapore this time round. For my 2nd birth, it happened that he was on holiday when Izaac came out and his brother wasn’t around in Singapore too. In the end, it was their friend that did the delivery for me.
Currently, we could only wait for the baby and see when the baby wants to come out. keke
Next visit will be 1 week later.

Yippee!! 33 weeks pregnant, another 1 month plus and the baby would be out to see the world. As we had some errands to run after the prenatal check-up, we didn’t let the kids follow us to the Gynea.
My weight is now 50kg, had gained 1kg over the past 2 weeks. Dr Chan first measured the baby’s legs and the head. Dr Chan zoomed in on the baby’s face after he had measured the baby. I had a hard time figuring out the parts on the face as the screen seems dark. Seems like Dr Chan had got a new machine and we got a chance to see Dr Chan in 3D. We can see a clear view of eyes and nose but too bad the mouth was blocked. It’s really interesting to see the baby in 3D! Dr Chan told us that this time he gave us for free but next time he would have to charge us. keke According to him, it will be a small baby, weighing about 2.8kg when she came out of.
For the 33rd weeks of pregnancy, baby is practicing breathing to exercise the lungs. Baby can listen, hear and see. The bones are hardening now except for the skull, which is still quite pliable and not completely joined, to ease out of the relatively narrow birth canal. Baby's skin is also gradually becoming less red and wrinkled.
For me, I could feel the Braxton contraction now and then. It’s also hard to find a good position to sleep or lie down with a big tummy. Still having backache and I could not stand long without feeling giddy sometimes, feeling very tired easily, sometimes thinking is it that age had catch up?
Well, the next visit to the Gynea will be in 2 weeks time.
It’s been 3 weeks since the last visit to the Gynea. This time, we brought Izaac along to the Gynae. The nurse asked about the hospital for delivery as they had to book the room for me. As it was the 3rd birth and I am still very satisfied with my previous stay at Thomson Medical Centre, I told the nurse that I wanted to deliver at TMC and stay in a four-bedded room. Its Izaac’s first time seeing the baby in mummy’s tummy from the screen. After the visit, the only thing on his mind is the dinosaur on the Gynea’s table, not much word mention on his view of the baby.
My weight is around 49kg. I had gained 2kg since 3 weeks ago. That’s good news for me. Everybody’s saying the tummy is getting bigger. Some saying that maybe the gender of the baby is a boy instead of a girl as the tummy is sharp instead of round; old wives’ tale of predicting whether the gender of the baby by looking at the shape of the tummy. Another colleagues of mine said that my nose is bigger now, meaning that I would be giving birth soon.
31st week pregnant, I am having frequent trips to toilet, sometimes in the middle of the night. I ever dreamt that I had given birth, probably due to talks about giving birth during the day. (Started to feel nervous whenever I think about giving birth) I am feeling uncomfortable sleeping and had to turn from side to side a few times before I find myself a considerable good position and falling to sleep.

I am about 28 weeks pregnant now. Mummy’s weight is 47kg and Dr Chan said baby’s weight about 1kg. It should be a small baby like my second pregnancy. From the scan, the weight indicates 1059g. I compared against Amilie’s and Izaac’s and it’s around the same as Izaac’s. I could feel more and more movement of the baby now.
Still feeling tired easily and appetite had not changed much. I had not much cravings for food on wee hours. Just that sometimes we would order delivery when feeling hungry in the middle of the night. I feel thirsty most of the time and I kept drinking a lot of water to quench my thirst. In return, sometimes, I would wake up in the middle of the night and unable to get back to sleep after going to the toilet.
My next visit will be 3 weeks later as of 28th May 2009.
Just some thought:
I went for Manicure and Pedicure recently and the manicurist told me that some of her customer don’t do nail polish when they are pregnant or within one month after they had given birth. I wasn’t sure about it. So I went home to do a research about it. It seems that there were saying that the chemicals in the nail polish that could be harmful to the fetal development but there were no prove of it yet. Some articles do indicate that it’s alright to polish the nails but it’s better to do it at a well-ventilated salon.
So whether is nail polish safe for pregnancies, it’s up to the individual to decide. I guessed I won’t be going for the next manicure and pedicure after my confinement now.
It's another visit to the Gynae. Baby about 24th week old and my weight had increased to 43kg. Checked with Gynae what’s the baby’s weight but he told us that still unable to weigh the baby, roughly around 600g.
The Gynae measured the head and told us that the baby is fine. Below is the scan of the baby.

My appetite remained the same. Prefer eating cakes a lot and had stop liking potato chips. I had grown out of potato chips. The weather is getting warmer every night, sometimes woke up all sweaty. I would wake up in the middle of the night to on the air-conditioner to get back to sleep.
Sometimes I would feel a bit of the baby but not as much as when I was pregnant with Izaac.
Next visit will be 4 weeks later.
We were supposed to see our Gynae on 2nd of April but he was on some seminar. We went for the Fetal Assessment Scan at Thomson Medical that day.
I will be having a baby girl as confirmed by the Obsterian. The fetal assessment went fine and the Obsterian explained to us the baby organs and told us that the baby is about average size. Baby covered its eyes with its hand on one occasion. We got 2 printouts of the baby and were told that the report will be sent to the Gynae’s since my next appointment will be one week later.

For the past weeks, my appetite had become better. Still feeling tired and sleeping not well. Though still feel nausea, I could replace the feeling by eating. I liked anything about potatoes at that time. From chips to fries to potatoes boiled in soup. I could keep munching anything that’s potatoes.
My weight had increased to 40kg. When we saw the Gynae, his first question was whether we want to know the gender of the baby. We told him “Yes!”
That’s the scan:

After the first prenatal visit, my appetite was still not good. I still did not gain any weight, only 37kg (Yap! I am underweight) when I went for the second prenatal visit. Always feeling tired and not getting enough sleep. Woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't get back to sleep after waking up.
For my second prenatal appointment, the gynea told me that I was to take the blood test. I was quite surprised that it was time to take the blood test as it was only my second appointment. I don’t remember taking the blood test during my second prenatal visit. After getting the blood sample to be sent for lab test, it’s time to see how the baby is doing.
