Where I have been

So folks, I can finally be back on this blog! =)

This, is the reason for my disappearance:

(taken on 16 Jan 09)

Yup, I'm pregnant - and now 9 weeks so. So the folks who suggested that I was pregnant then, during the random giddy spells, were all right! Just that I didn't know it myself.

After a few happy days of discovering this pregnancy, I fell into 2-3 weeks of utter disarray - exhibiting textbook pregnancy symptoms. I got bouts of intense tiredness and giddy spells. My tastebuds changed, and I could not keep my food down, running to throw up a few times a day. I have never vomited so much or so violently like I did those few weeks. The doctors gave me a couple of days of much needed medical leave just to rest, and rest I did, for I could not really function normally at all. When I did have to go out, I always had in my bag 2 plastic bags for the inevitable puking that would occur.

Now however, I am thankful to seem to have survived the worst of the Morning (I'd say "All Day") sickness. I feel my energy coming back, and I am keeping my food down a lot more. I suspect it has partly to do with the huge dosage (50mg/day) of VitB6 that my gynae prescribed me.

I have so much to share about my thoughts, emotions and experiences, and I will be glad to do so from now on :)

In the meantime, I received this Kate Spade diaper bag! A dear friend bought it for me in anticipation of my getting pregnant =) Isn't that so sweet? I love the polka dots on the inside, and it matches my other Kate Spade bag!

imp: It certainly feels good to be able to taste most of my food now - although some boiled meats still make me queasy. Yay to babysitter! :)

cote-p: Thank you my dear friend. You have been a tremendous support!

yuling: Hahahaha you KNEW???? Actually one week before I tested positive, I tested too - and got a negative result. So I truly thought I was just unhealthy.

ruth: Thank you! I'll be following your footsteps the next couple of months! heh

cindy: Thank you - it is a blessing :) I've lots to learn from you too!

lms: YOU suspected too? Wahahahaha!! What is a baby list? Yes I would be asking for lotsa advice from all you girls soon. First stop - where to get nice maternity wear?! I've bought a couple of things from Old Navy and ASOS. Waiting for them to arrive to see if they fit!

beanbean: Thank you for understanding. I hated those questions too when I was not actually pregnant! But yes I have been so tired on a daily basis. Like a ragdoll some afternoons.

the Rust: Thank you! It is exciting indeed. I feel more excited on the days I physically feel better. Haha

celcilia: Hahaha - it is ok. Oops I didn't see that post - will have a look at it soon.

poiema: It is almost like I can't help taking things slower anyway. I still feel like I'm a little ill everyday. haha. I go to Gleneagles. Will drop you a mail soon.

candice: Thank you! Haha I can't believe so many people guessed! Yes I didn't know when to share it, and when I did want to - I just couldn't formulate the words. But news have spread so much that I thought oh well. Haha.

tiffany: THANK YOU!!!! The baby is a gift I gratefully receive.

nuttyjas: Thanks dear. I try to eat well but right now I can only eat things that I don't make me feel like puking. (Which tends to be the unhealthy stuff. eeps!)

KLH: Thanks for sharing my joy! It is a great way to start the year really!

jacinta: Thank you, I do feel very blessed - value your prayers! :)
