Pregnancy Log: Twenty Questions

Heavily pregnant at only 7 months

1. Was your pregnancy planned, and how old were you?
It was planned, I was 25 years old :)

2. What was your reaction?
Both surprised and unsurprised. Surprised because everyone said they tried for months for a baby and we were super lucky to have had one within 1 week of trying. Unsurprised because I was extraordinarily tired during that first few weeks and my gut feeling told me that I was pregnant. I knew even before I missed my period.

3. How did you find out you were pregnant?
I took a pregnancy test to confirm what I already knew deep in my heart. It was also my first time peeing on a stick!

4. Who did you tell first?
The hubby and mum-in-law :)

5. Did you find out the sex?
Yes. They told me it was a girl the 1st time, we (mostly the hubby) didn't believe it. They said it was a girl the 2nd time, we didn't believe it. It took seeing her womb and ovaries to convince us that we were having a girl!

Hubby was disappointed (then.. now she is his one & only while I'm kicked aside -_-). I, however, was thrilled! :)

6. Did you have morning sickness?
I didn't throw up but I experienced nausea throughout my pregnancy.

7. What did you crave?
Durians!! Mountain cat durians to be precise :D

8. Who / What irritated you the most?
Everyone and every little thing will irritate me! You just had to catch me at the wrong time and the wrong place!

And you can't blame me! I went from being cool as cucumber and never breaking a sweat to being heat-stroke 24/7 and sleeping in aircon and 2 fans in shorts and singlets and no blanket! True story.

9. Did you wish you had a different gender from what you obtained?
I sure didn't! :)

10. How many kilos did you gain during the entire pregnancy?
I gained 23 astonishing kilos! And still trying to get some of it off.. -_-

11. Where did you think the baby was conceived?
I wish I can say it was in Switzerland but no. Definitely at home, made in Singapore ;P

12. Did you have any complications during the pregnancy?
Nope, thankfully!

13. Where did you give birth?
National University Hospital, simply because I was still doing my masters at National University of Singapore so it was more convenient :)

Taken just before I started to push when my cervix is 10cm dilated
(I look like crap but this is reality. Normal people do not give birth with full makeup on)

14. How many hours were you in labour?
Twelve hours. I went into labour at 12 noon and gave birth at 11.53pm.

15. Was it natural, or C-Sect?
Au Naturel baby :D

16. Who watched you give birth?
The hubby, my OBGYN and a few nurses, one of whom was extraordinarily fierce. Did not affect me at all. When you are pushing like crazy, there was only one thing on my mind.."GET HER OOOUT!!!!!!"

17. Did you take medication to ease the pain?
Of course! I asked for an epidural the minute they said I was only 3cm dialated. Be crazy not to.

18. When was your child born?
4 July 2010, yes Independence Day.

19.What is her name?
Girlee Lee. Not her real name but seeing as I call her that most of the time, it might as well be her real name ;P

20. How old is she today?
She is 2 years 9 months old today ^_^
