Week 13!


so lousy mummy took the multi vits for 2 days and her body decided it will reject all multi vits. hubs tried to cut the pill into 2 for my easy swallowing but the pill just wont go down. i end up gagging or vomitting out everything. felt so lousy that i am unable to take the multi vit ;( the calcium is okay because hubs bought the powder form, so i just mix it in orange juice and drink it all up. the fish oil DHA is also ok because it is a small soft gel.

anyways, it is Week 13 Day 1 now. Nausea is still there every morning and evening. i am also still feeling lethargic and exhausted every single day. im in bed usually after dinner and i try to sleep by 9pm or 10pm. but by 2am im usually up for god knows what reason. and then i find it hard to settle back to sleep properly. i just cant find a comfortable position.

preggie woman are not encouraged to lie on their back to sleep as the weight of the growing uterus presses on the major vein that returns blood from the lower body to the heart. Hence lying on the back for an extended period of time could make the mummy feel dizzy and interfere with blood flow and nutrients to the placenta and the baby.

i also found out that when i lie on my right, i have a stronger urge to pee.

it is also recommended to sleep on the left. which i find gives me a tummy ache!

some have recommended to buy a pregnancy pillow which will help preggie mummies to sleep better but these pillows come up to a few hundreds! omg.

and oh yes, according to BabyCentre, fingerprints have formed on the baby’s fingertips, the veins and organs are clearly visible through the still-thin skin, and the body is starting to catch up with the head — which makes up just a third of the body size now. It is so awesome to read weekly updates from these newsletters. i signed up for BabyCentre and Kidspot. as a first time mummy, these updates helps me to understand what im going through is actually quite normal and i am also able to look forward to baby’s development each week.

Baby baby, please continue to grow! Cant wait to see you on 27 Sept. Mama and Papa loves ya.
