Fire Fire Office Is On Fire!

Woke up this morning and told Mr Frankie that I wish my office is on fire.
Mr Frankie went "What? Why do you say that?"
And I told him.. "I don't feel like going to work today"
Mr Frankie laughed so hard, he almost pee in his jammie.
I wonder what was so funny about that? I was really hoping that my office was on fire so I didn't have to go to work today.
Hmmmph Monday sure has a way of firing uo my imagination.
p/s : My office is not on fire and I'm already at work waiting for a meeting. Grrrrrrr!

I am just oh so very tired today. My whole body aches and my head is spinning I just need to lie down for a little bit. But of course being in the office and all, I cant go and nap everytime I feel like it.
Didn't manage to get much sleep last nigh. I was just tossing and turning from around 2 a.m. til about 5ish a.m. and when I managed to doze off, it was already 5:30 a.m. and it was already time to get up.
Sometimes I envy women who have the luxury of staying home during their pregnancy. You ladies are darn lucky.

Weekend Here We Come

I'm currently taking NeuroGainPB dietary supplement as instructed by my doctor. Anyway thanks to Leelwan's mommy for the advice. (leelwan is one CUTIE PIE! Check out her blog)
I'd also like to say thanks to Jason Roth of Roth Family Adventure for your concern. I didn't know that preggers are not allowed (or at lest not encouraged) to eat seafood for the level of mercury found in seafood. And congratulations to Roth Family Adventure for being awarded 'Excellent Blog' :)
It's Friday and that means tomorrow is the weekend. Hurrah!!! The last 2 weeks, Mr Frankie and I were on our feet most of the time so this weekend we are just going to do some house cleaning and just chill.
Ok gotta get back to work.
Take care people.

Frankie The Mean Eating Machine (12 Weeks 6 Days Pregnant...and counting)

I know that this blog is dangerously becoming a pregnancy blog...but bear with me oui? :)

This is what I seems to be doing all the time. The last check-up I've gained 1.5kg in 1 month! That's so not very good but I've been told that's the normal weight gain. But still this weight gain is making me back hurts very much.

And my skin is all blotchy and I have small pimples all over my boobies (esp) yucky...

I think I might've felt Peanut kicking but I can't tell for sure. It might be gas. But I feel this little 'knock' from time to time which is kinda cool :) If it was really Peanut, then he/she is a kicker for sure.

My constant companions these days are...


My belly is starting to get all itchy. I used to use cocoa butter but I find Mothercare's massage cream is way way much better and much cheaper than the cocoa butter cream that I used previously.

I have this craving for chili crabs/seafood. Anyone knows a good place to go have seafood (that won't break my pocket as I plan to take the whole family (9 of us!) for seafood eating frenzy session)

I'll be 13 weeks pregnant this coming Saturday.

13 weeks fetus (3D scan)

This is the last week of your first trimester and your baby weighs 14 to 20 grams. The crown-to-rump length of your growing baby is 2.6 to 3.1 inches. Your baby is now about the size of a peach. Fetal growth is amazing from now through about the 24th week of pregnancy. At this point of your pregnancy, there is a steady flow of pregnancy hormones in your bloddstream. Your body will adjust to the changes and morning sickness might stop and other early symptoms will begin to ease. Because the second trimester is approaching, feelings of anxiety or nervousness may also diminish. You have probably gained some weight by now. You are losing your waist and your clothing is probably fitting snugly.

There is a milky membrane that surrounds your baby. It is pierced by the umbilical cord and is made up of two layers, which are fused together. Your placenta provides most of the nutrients and oxygen that your baby needs. By this week, the placenta is well formed and ready to take over hormone manufacture from your ovaries. The placenta will produce progesterone and estriol. These hormones will be crucial in the maintenance of your pregnancy. Tissue that will form your baby's bones is being laid down, especially around the head and limbs. The nose and chin are becoming more prominent.

Your baby's eyelids meet and fuse together and they will not open again for nearly four months. The eyes started out on the side of your baby's head and they are now moving closer together on the face. The ears come to lie in their normal position on the sides of the head. If examined outside of the womb, you will be able to distinguish male from female at this time. The sockets for all twenty teeth are formed in the gums, and vocal cords are beginning to form.


I'm beginning to feel very attach to Peanut. Not that I don't feel attach to him/her before, but feeling him/her kicking and seeing him moving last week makes me realised that I have this wonderful thing growing in my belly, and I just feel this intense LOVE all over. And I fell in love with Mr Frankie all over again everytime I see him fussing over things that I should eat, shouldn't eat, have I taken my vitamins today, how he makes sure that I'm comfy all the time, how he is just all calm and collected everytime I get all biatch (it's the hormones, I swear!). I'm truly grateful for such a wonderful husband...

Ok enough of the mushy things hehehehe.

I can't wait for my MC catalogue to arrive! And I'll post my 13 weeks belly soon :)

Sofiya The Cheeky Chikadee

Whenever I get all stressed out, all I need to do to calm down is to look at Sofiya's pictures :) She is just so adorable and not to mention very very cheeky too ;)

Peanut the Jumping Bean

We went for our third ultrasound scan last Saturday and we were thrilled to se our little Peanut jumping around and waving at us!

I was kinda expecting to see the little bean jumping as I have been reading a lot about pregnancy but Mr Frankie was very very surprised to see Peanut shaking his/her bon bon (obviously Mr Frankie has not been reading the pregnancy book that we bought. Hmmph!)

Anyway we were delighted to know that our Peanut is healthy and he is now about 6.8 cm. We also saw his beautiful spine and his heart was beating strongly. I have yet to feel his movement but the doctor said it won't be long before I could feel him kicking. I can't wait! :)

However, I have been told that my BP is quite high 133/88 and it is a bit of a concern to me as I know that high BP could lead to pre-eclampsia. The doctor have asked me to rest and relax and try not to get all worked up. I told my doctor that work can get pretty stressful (esp with a boss like mine!). She said I need to learn to calm down and just take things in stride.

*sighs* I guess I really do not have a choice but to calm down and learn how to relax.

Any tips people?

And I learn that morning sickness doesn't only happen during day time. It also happens during night/very early in the morning too. I have been waking up at 3 a.m. the last week just to eat. Good thing that we have 24 hours McDonalds just around the corner. Mr Frankie was there at 3 a.m. in his 'kain pelikat' (sarong) getting me McD's breakfast *grins*

I also learn that emotional threat works like a charm.

Told Mr Frankie that if he refuses to buy me food, I'll turn this baby into an Arsenal/Liverpool/Chelsea fan (thanks to Diyana for this tip ;)). Hahahahahaha!

Mr Frankie now do whatever it takes to make sure that this baby is a Man U fan. I was once asked to sit down with Mr Frankie to watch a 2-hour Man U Greatest Moment on DVD. Hmmph!

Anyway I'd like to say thank you to those who wrote/e-mail to me on pregnancy tips and also to all well wishes. I really appreciate it very much *hugs*

By the by, now that we know that Peanut is already jumping and waving and kicking, Mr Frankie is scared to the horizontal lambada fearing that Peanut would have a shock of his life if he sees his daddy's umm...birdie. I told Mr Frankie that Peanut is oblivious to that but that doesn't seems to convince him. I am to call the doctor today to confirm that it's ok to rompy romp.


Have a good week people.

My First Belly Shot (11 weeks and 3 days pregnant)

And I look H.U.G.E! And I'm only (almost) 3 months along! And look at my boobies. I've changed size twice is 3 months.
And my nose seems to expand too!
I just have to lay off the Tropicana and no more 'nasik lemak' for me.
And remember when I said that my morning sick has subsided? Well guess what? The last couple of days, it became worse. I vomit almost every morning. Brushing my teeth is almost impossible let alone gargling. I'm super super tired all the time. By the time I get home from work I have just enough energy to shower and have a bite and I'll be snoring by 9 p.m. And I even cried watching when Pamela and Vanessa scooping the elephants poo poo in The Amazing Race Asia (?!)
Anyway we started buying some baby stuffs. I know it's way too early but we just couldn't resist! We got Mr Frankie his diaper bag. He refuses to carry any floral type of diaper bag (sheesh) so we bought this 'macho' diaper bag at Maison de Bebe in Bangsar Village (after we stuffed our face with roti canai at Mahbub heheheh). Maison de Bebe was having a sale and I was also looking for the Bumbo seat which comes only in pink. Well I'm not a big pink fan so we'll try and find it somewhere else.
We saw some strollers too at MC The Curve and we found one that we like though we'd like to compare the price first before we buy it. And this week we'll be hunting for a baby doppler (thanks Eintanz I'll go and have a look at Babyland in Summit).
On another note, work sucks. No, work's ok but my boss sucks. I was on MC last week because I had high fever and flu and cough you name it I got it. My boss was really angry that I had 2 days MC that he told me " Next time if you want to take your MC tell me at least 2 days in advance!"
Can you please tell me how stupid can a Senior Manager be? I mean really?
Well I better get going. Meeting in an hour.

Does anyone know where I can (preferably) buy or rent a Doppler? Been looking around but can't seems to find one.
And I'm also on a look out for a good OB/GYN. Any suggestions?
I'm 10 weeks 3 days along today :) the morning sickness is till there but not as bad as when I was in my 6th week. Can't wait for my next ultrasound appointment next week :)
I have been meaning to leave comments whenever I blog surf but I am so just lazy bum bum. My bad especially those who left comments on my blog. Sorry. Promise to get around dropping comments soonest possible.
I have started showing (a little). Most of my clothes are getting a little snug around the waist and Mr Frankie said that my mid-sec looks rounder than usual (being chubby, my mid-sec is always round heheheheh!) Though we know that the baby is not able to hear us yet, Mr Frankie and I talk to Peanut all the time :)
So far I've lost 8 lbs! But I guess I'll gain more than that anytime soon as my appetite is getting way way better. Wasn't able to eat any rice at all the last 6 weeks. The morning sickness is supposed to go away very soon as the placenta is fully formed in the next couple of weeks.
Cravings? I don't think so though I have to say that I 'need' to eat 'Tropicana' ice cream (that green ice cream with vanilla fillings in the middle) everyday. I know it's empty calories and it's not good for me but if I don't eat one, I'll get really restless. Sent Mr Frankie to 7-11 a couple of times to get Tropicana, so now he makes sure the freezer is always full of Tropicana :) (bless Mr Frankie)
And just like any new-parents-to-be we have our concerns esp financial concern but I believe that things will go well. We have become extra careful with money now. We plan to set up a bank account the moment Peanut is born. Then there's insurance. College funds.
Oh my....
Well I can't wait for Chinese New Year holiday. Told Mr Frankie that I must go to Raju's for some masala tosai ;)
To all bloggers who are celebrating CNY, Happy Chinese New Year. Be safe on the road.

H0rny Bunny

Ever since I got pregnant, I find myself ummm......quite 'in the mood' most of the time.

I mean, Mr Frankie is scared of getting undress in front of me now. And he won't let me jump in the shower with him no more.

He even ask me to 'go slow'!


And I get 'very in the mood' in the morning when I wake up. There was even an occasion where I woke Mr Frankie up at 3 a.m. for some good loving.

I never do that before. At times I caught myself thinking of what I'll do to Mr Frankie once we get home!

What is the matter with me? Is this normal??

I'm one h0rny bunny! Hahahahahah

Peanut :)

Hola! Oh my the last couple of weeks have been crazyyyyyyy! This baby of ours has pretty much turned our world upside down inside out up and down and round and round, and he's not even born yet! ;)

Anyway, I have loads to post but for now I'm just going to let you have a peek at our Peanut, our baby :) Well we call him Peanut because he looks like one.

My weekend is pretty much spent doing absolutely nothing because I have zero energy to do anything at all. Thanks to Mr Frankie who seems to be doing all the chores around the house, including making me cheese sandwiches and hot Milo, which are the only things that I manage to hold down. He even did all the laundry, the vacuuming, the ironing, the everything. Love you D *kiss kiss*

I better get going. With Diyana not around, there is nothing much that I can do to amuse myself. I at times find myself making jokes to my chair and table and laughing out loud.

Crazy hormones make you do crazy things.
