Our 2nd Pregnancy – Updates at Week 24

I was in the midst of writing about my Amniocentesis experiences and had wanted to complete that first before sharing this update. But we received our 2nd Amnio report last week and went for a follow-up scan with my gynae just 2 days back so I thought I’ll update soon because just these 2 days, we had so many people checking in on us  ...

Bump Style

As I was clearing photos from my phone and camera to make space for more baby photos, I was looking though my pregnancy photos and realised I kinda miss my bump 🙂 Looking back, those 40 weeks wearing the bump seemed to have passed by in a flash when initially, 40 weeks sounded like such a long time. The recommended weight gain as instructed by  ...

Baby L – The Birth Story

In a blink of an eye, Baby Laurent is already 1 week old 🙂 3.35pm – this time, last week, I was probably in the clinic waiting to see Dr Tan about my contractions. But before I go into details, let me start from the beginning 😉 Week 39, Day 5 – 10 July, Thursday Just after blogging about my last baking post, I went to the toilet  ...

Baby L – The First Thoughts

It’s 2.30am and I’m wide awake, waiting for Laurent to be sent to me for his second feed 👶 Our baby darling took his first look at this world on 11 July 2014, close to 8pm. His birth story will be for another entry. Now, I just want to share my thoughts and emotions, as I reflect quietly upon the amazing flurry of events this  ...

Baby Law-RAWn

Today I’m going to share a little about Baby L’s name – Laurent 🙂 When people hear his name, they’ll first ask me how to spell it, then most of them will ask me why this name because it is rather uncommon. Laurent is a French name so the pronunciation is a little different from the typical way we pronounce English names. As many (or  ...

Baby L – Baby Room Set-up

We are officially 1 month away from Baby L’s EDD of 12 July! Almost everyone has been asking me if we are ready for his arrival… I guess one can never say that they are really prepared for the arrival of their little one, no matter how much preparation they have done! But at least, we’ve set up the cot and washed his little bedding set  ...

Baby L – Week 34

Baby L will be in his 34th week in another 2 days’ time and we just went for his latest check-up yesterday 🙂 I gained another KG over these 2 weeks and half of the weight went to him. He is now close to 2.4kg. Hope he’ll keep up with the growth! Toilet runs have been getting more frequent these days, especially during the night. And no matter  ...

Baby L – Week 32

No photos accompanying this post because I just want to put some thoughts into words before my slumber, which is getting a little tough with the little dude on his usual nocturnal hyperactive mode. I’m at the tail end of Week 32 now and it still amazes me, everytime I look at my bulging baby bump in the mirror, that it now houses a  ...

Baby Planning – Lists, Notes and Apps

Went for Baby L’s 28-week check-up couple of weeks back 🙂 Glad to hear that Baby L has been growing well. He has doubled in size since last month’s check-up and is at a healthy 1.3kg now. In Dr Tan’s words, he is “just the right size” 🙂 In fact, Baby L has been almost doubling in size since his 5-month scan, so Wayne and I were happily  ...
