1. I'm 9 weeks pregnant

2. I had my 2nd ultrasound last week. The baby is doing good. It's the size of a grape, and it's got a tiny little heart that beats like a champion :P It's the cutest thing in the world, seriously (or maybe that's just me, cuz it's my baby and it's living in me). It's got hands and feet, but no fingers or toes yet.

3. The morning sickness persists. It's not bad, but it's not great either. As soon as the nausea pill runs out of my system, I get nauseated all over again.

4. I haven't been craving anything much. In fact, for some reason, the thought of food sometimes makes me wanna throw up.

5. No weight gain either. Yes, I know I look tembam, but the tembam came before the baby.

6. but I've got massive lower back pains, esp at night! It's a good thing that my husband seems to be an awesome untrained masseuse though :P

And that's about it! :)

Stupid Movies/Dramas

We don't have astro.

And so, I spend most of my days nauseated on the couch, watching the dramas and whatever they show on the local tv channels. You know, rtm1 and 2, tv3, ntv7, 8tv.

Sometimes, the storylines are so stupid that I feel my IQ going down right along with it. haih.

I mean, seriously, who does the kind of stuff that the people in these movies/dramas do?

Bodoh sangat.

You don't have to be perfectly logical, but at least show your viewers some respect and don't insult their intelligence lah and make them believable.

and FYI, logical and believable are two different things.

When I say logical, I mean that it doesn't go against scientific norm and can be explained.

When I say believable, I mean that it should at least be something that our minds can grasp.

Ada ke orang yang BAIKKKKKKKKKK sangat sampai dia biar je orang lain pijak kepala without even a peep? lepas tu cembeng, nangis sorang2 macam orang BODOH. masa ada chance nak terajang orang tu takde pulak kau buat?

For scriptwriters/directors out there, NO. That quality does not make a character likeable. It makes me root for the bad guy just because they're a lot smarter. seriously.

Make your protagonist have some balls la. Kalau orang pijak kepala, kasi tempeleng balik kepala orang tu sekali. Barula boleh percaya.

Funny Coincidences

Today, through a whole series of coincidences, I bumped into someone who meant a lot to me long ago. This was someone who was around during my angsty teenage years, who almost always made me feel better with her experiences, wit and her ability to make me feel special. She disappeared from my life after some unfortunate events, and even went out of her way to avoid any of us (through no fault of ours, or hers, mind you - just circumstances) and today, after many long years, I saw her again.

Anyway, yesterday, I was supposed to go to Maybank and CIMB to take care of some stuff for my Masters programme. In the morning, a really bad wave of morning sickness hit me pretty hard, and I was basically incapacitated. The fact that I can't stand the smell of my neighbour's cooking and the sound of the drilling in one of the houses above did not help.

I finally got something to eat and felt better for a while, but just as I got ready to go out, another wave hit, I decided to take a nap at around 1.45 and could not wake up until 5.00pm. My body was just that weak. So I took a rain check on my plans.

Today, I woke up fine and decided to head over to Desa Hartamas, because as far as I remembered, both Maybank and CIMB were located near each other there. When I arrived, I found out that the CIMB had been replaced by Burger King. AND I left my phone at home so I couldn't call anyone to ask for the nearest CIMB. I knew there was one branch in Bukit Damansara and one in TTDI, but it was next to impossible to get parking at those places, so I decided to head over the The Curve, where parking was a breeze.

I walked into CIMB, and there she was!

She was on the phone, cuz she seemed to be having some problems, so she waved and then went out to speak on the phone. I thought she was gonna walk off without actually saying anything else, but she came back to take care of her stuff and asked me to lunch. And the rest, as they say, is history.

It's funny cuz originally, my plan was to get stuff done yesterday but I was too sick for it so I could only get it done today.

If the CIMB bank was still around in Hartamas, I wouldn't have had to go to another branch.

If parking wasn't so impossible at the other branches, I wouldn't have decided to stop by The Curve

And if she hadn't been having problems and needed to make a call, she would've been done with her business long before I arrived.

So I guess this is what they call fate.

The Reveal

Cheh, the title sounds poyo kan? haha, whatever.

Anyway, here it goes, we're expecting!

It's been 7 and a half weeks so It's really really new. To my friends out there, please doakan that the three of us will make it safe and sound yeah?

So far I've had a mild to moderate case of morning sickness ("morning"? lies i tell you, lies!), sleepless nights, backaches, extreme mood swings (I cried for three hours over assam laksa. like seriously, how emotional can you get over food?) and the inability to smell certain scents (i.e: my neighbour's cooking and it's bad cuz she seems to cook the same thing e.v.e.r.y.s.i.n.g.l.e.w.e.e.k.d.a.y.m.o.r.n.i.n.g), but I'm healthy so far, and thinking about what's to come makes it all worth it!

So yeah, there's my big news, it's also a major reason why I deactivated my facebook - initially it was because I was excited and didn't want to reveal it before letting some of my best friends know about it first.

I was also getting annoyed by some idiots - posts, liking things they should not be liking, stuff like that, so i figured before I gave them nasty, nasty messages on facebook, it was better for me to step back until my moodswings are over.

I know that some of the people who found out early were dying to let it out, because someone actually posted a status without actually revealing who it was! hehe, thanks darlings for keeping it secret this long.

There are still a few important people who don't know the news yet. Hopefully, they'll read this and find out soon.

So again, please doakan that baby, mommy AND dad will all make it through this, safe, sound, healthy and sane. Thanks!
