Baby @ 12 weeks. Size: 5.86 cm
29 Oct Wed (Rain and Rain..)
Finally, Baby is 12 weeks!! BB is very active. Kicking and Boxing me. Poor BB looks very cramp up in the scan as BB keep stretching. Bb was very frustrated when Doctor was pressing the scanner on my tummy. BB keep pushing the womb and after a while look away and show me butts again. Angry little BB. Even Doctor commented that Bb is very active. I think i will have a hard time when Bb is bigger with all the kicking, boxing and stretching.
Was suppose to go back to work tomorrow but doctor advice me to rest more. So will only start work next month. Good thing also cos my birthday is on friday ! I'm a Halloween baby. I also did a blood test today. Have to draw out 3 Vials of blood!! I almost died! Luckily i don't have to take anymore injections. I'm also suppose to do the down syndrome test. But i decided not to as i feel tat even if Bb is high risk for Down Syn i would not abort so might as well not know and enjoy my pregnancy. I got enough to worry abt already. And today's bill is $405!! Wow !!Poor Jooling. Eric parents decided not to look after her baby cos Eric sis insist on his mum looking after her son! Sighz. It's good and bad. Good cos Joo don't have to worry about his sis moving in. Bad cos poor little Stephanie have to go to nursery at a tender young age. Luckily my mum is looking after my little BB. She the one that insist I have a baby soon cos she wan a grandchild. So she happily voluntered to look after. I'm not comfortable with anyone else looking after my baby. My mum is sort of a professional babysister. She's been looking after babies for a long time. She has brought up more than 8 babies including myself and my silbings. She's currently looking after my neighbour 2 cute kids.
Video not so clear cos i record the actual video with my mobile frm the computer. Actual one is 166MB.

Went for my 6th injection today. It's suppose to be tomorrow but no one to fetch me so have to go today. A/P Mary Rauff changed my medicine, it's more expensive now. $53 per injection. Sobs.. It's more painful than previous injection. For Bb sake.. SiGhz.

Baby @ 11 weeks 20th Oct. Size: 4.26cm
Walk in for appointment today cos of bleeding again. Sighz. Found out that my baby is too low. Too close to my Cervice. That's why i have bleeding problems. Sobz. If the baby doesn't move up i might have bleeding on and off. And also will have to have C-section and baby will be premature. Sobz. Doctor also said i might get heavy bleeding during my 3th tri and have to have emergency C-section. Now i'm on 9 days mc. Going for detail scan on 29th.
On the bright side, My baby is very active. Baby was boxing and kicking and bouncing around. Baby's so cute. Doctor was scolding Bb, says Bb always kicking that's why mummy bleeding. Bb became angry and kick even more. So Naughty. Definitly will be a notti little Bb when Bb's born.
Actually felt my baby move yesterday, was moving alone. I was pretty scared. Though Bb might have seizure. Luckily after the scan today, i reliase Bb's just too active.

15th Oct Wed Hot & yet Rainy
Granddad 53th birthday is on 16th Oct but we are celebrating today cos I'm starting work tomorrow. Sighz.
Also I went for my 4th injection today. Yet another painful jab. Got some pain on my side today and a little bit of dark red spot. Hope everything will be okay tomorrow.
Shawn and I can feel my baby kicking today. So comforting to know BB is okay.
Today I met up with my buddy Ting for lunch. Both of us unfortunately has no mood to eat. Sighz. Ting is a little down, she feeling giddy and has taken off from work. Poor Ting. Most likely due to lack of iron and sugar.
A little history about my best buddies. I have known them for a really long time. Since primary school. Ting, Joo and Bin whom will be my little BB godmothers.
Ting is currently about 17 weeks pregnant with my godson. If i didn't had my miscarriage. My 1st baby would be the same age as Ting's. Both of us actually has the same EDD. We were so excited over it. BUT... Ting had the same problem as me currently too.. Her husband is Kun has is the most caring. Very funny and nice guy. Almost prefect husband. Really fun to be around.
Joo is currently about 33 weeks pregnant but she has low amino fluid. Only about 1cm frm placenta to the head. She's due for C-section on 20th Oct. Her EDD was suppose to be 19 Nov which will make her little Stephanie a scorpion like me and bin. Sighz. What's most important now is everything will be smooth for Joo and my little goddaughter will be healthy. Joo's currently under lots of stress now due to a lot of reasons which i can't write down ..... I have a little surprise full moon present for Joo. He he..
Bin unfortunately is not pregnant which is good due to obvious reason. She not married and but hopes to get married and start a family soon. As soon as she and Sky find the perfect house. GOOD LUCK !!
Me, Ting and Joo actually has lots in Common both good and bad:
1. Eldest in the family
2. Have younger brother
3. Husband is the only son
4. Husband has older sister
5. Sister in law have children
6. Our Child will be the First internal Grandchild
7. Our child will be the first external Grandchild
8. Complicated pregnancy
9. Have to go on long mc

Visited my new doctor, A/Professor Mary Rauff. She was my sister in law's doctor. A/P Mary is an expert on pregnancy complications. It was a long drive to NUH from Sengkang. She was previously at Mount Elizabeth but moved to NUH.
I do not actually want to deliver at NUH, i prefer Raffles Hospital which was where my previous doctor was located. But well, i had no choice. Sighz. The good thing is NUH is a lot cheaper than Raffles hospital. But then again A/P Mary is a lot more expensive.
A/P Mary explained to me that the cause could be my baby's placenta was not strong enough that's why when i actually stand too long or walk around i start to bleed as the placenta detach slightly from the womb. She was pretty worried about my baby's size. The cure is to bed rest myself and take injections every 3 wed and sat. Which was pretty hard as i really afraid of the needle and also my Work. I'm in the retail line. Also, I took a test to check on my mental health and i'm under depression. I have to be really careful.
Luckily the ultrasound result was great. There is no blood clot. My baby is at a healthy 2.6cm and heart is beating great. And the best thing is little BB started to kick and move. I was crying tears of joy. Shawn tried to record it down but the baby feel asleep. Sobs.
A little history: Just 2 months ago, on 5th August 2008, I lost my first baby at 7 weeks. I was totally devastated. The pregnancy was unexpected but it was a real joy to me and my husband when we finally accept it. Everything was smooth until i had my cramps at work on sat then on mon night i had spotting and on tues the baby was gone. It was a really depressing time for my husband and I but luckily we had the support of friends and family. Especially my 3 close friends.
3 weeks later I felt different and took a pregnancy test and it was positive ! But the road is long and hard. I had multiple spotting problems. Had to see the doctor almost every week to check. I either have brown spotting or red. Once i bleed a lot and had to rush to ER. Luckily the baby is fine. I'm on bed rest now till 15th. Had to take injection every 3 days. It's a lot better now. Brown spotting on and off still. I do fear going back to work as i'm afraid i will start bleeding again. Sighz. Just have to be really careful and rest well.
