Baby, Oh Baby....

Oopps... what I am going to post today might turn the guys off!! hahaha.... well, this post is for ladies "eyeing" only but if u guys can give some friendly advice, please do so....

My fren is in her full bloom pregnancy now, anytime now, another new creation will come out into this world. She is in her 40th week and according to the doctor, her baby now weighs around 4.1 kg!! Doc also said that her pelvic bone is not ready yet ... sigh.. Poor young mama, she is so anxious to see her little girl and she feels so "heavy" nowadays...

This afternoon while chatting with her to take away her "blues", we took some pictures, just for rememberance and what her legs are "suffering" at this moment... tell me, mama-s here, do your feet swollen during the later stage of pregnancy? I forgot about mine ... so many decades ago...


her full bloom...
baby comfortably "swimming" inside her womb


her poor swollen feet....

  13. I remembered my feet size went up from size 8 to 9 during the last few months of pregnancy. I can to buy a new pair of sandals otherwise I had no shoes for work. After Ashleigh was born, when I left the hospital, I could not wear the shoes anymore - too big! Yes, feet up, cut down on salt as well.

  19. 4.1kg in just 40weeks of pregnancy..OMG. But the good things is, they both healthy.. not easy to be a mum.. thanks mum!

  20. Wow. That's a huge baby. Ryan was only 2.2kg when he arrived on the 34th week. My wife's leg was only slightly swollen towards the final months of pregnancy. Putting her legs up did help. Always salute mommies for the period that they go through during pregnancy. I was with my wife in the delivery room. Was excited, scared and anxious at the same time. But, the moment when Ryan came out, priceless!

  21. i did experience swollen legs during my pregnancy but not as bad as your friend. i cushioned my legs with a pillow to elevate their level when i sleep at nite but i often end-up with muscle cramps in the morning...:)

  22. Michelle, my buddy said her feet look like baby elephant..

    yes, stp, thank God, no such "frens" such as u mentioned were with her...

    c.alv & Daddy Ryan, she is going to have a big baby, yes.. she eats like normal..maybe due both husband and wife's physical appearance.. :) anyway, we pray for smooth delivery for the baby girl...

  24. gosh i remembered how i ballooned up in my pregnancy too... and same thing.. pelvic was too small for delivery so got to go emergency C-section.. but things have a way of working out. tell her don't worry. the man up there takes care of everything.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
