Took the whole week off but I’m still working because J was sick last week and I didn’t work much. Give and take. So no stress. 9.4.18 (monday) begins my “Mutterschutz” maternity leave.
Packing the house(useless because the kid will take everything out again), decluttering. TH asking me why my home office is so relaxing. I said: I’m on leave btw.
TH: When are u starting your maternity leave? Erm… Monday I replied.
TH: So fast.
You have 4 weeks to come up with a name.
Our school here is asking for clothing donation for Africa.
So instead of throwing the clothes into the collection boxes. I packed them into bags to give it as donation.
Mainly TH’s t- shirts. He used to wear those geeky stupid tee. Some shrank after washing. So instead of occupying the drawer, all are up for donations.
I haven’t start on mine yet. Because they are in the cellar. Threw those shorts that I won’t wear anymore in already. Auntie old Liao. Cannot wear hot pants.
Not sure what’s the faith of Dayre. So not writing much here.
And till today I have not received any download link from @blog . And wondering if I will ever get them actually.
People I met always asked if everything is ok.
What do you all answer normally?
I often replied yes. All good. And they seems disappointed.
I mean, I don’t expect my life to be easier with a second kid.
Some days back pain, some days leg pain. Normal stuffs.
Controlling well with insulin. Weight gain so far is less than 5kg. Which is too LOW apparently. I should gain 9kg till date.
I am not starving. Just eating horse food. Low carb high protein.
So dietician asked me to inject more insulin and eat more.
Baby normal weight so it didn’t really bothers me that I’m not gaining enough. Isn’t it? It’s not as if he is small.
During J’s time, I was bed resting in the hospital because J was too small. And this one isn’t.
Gain too much weight also stress. Too little also stress.
Change of season
Digging out the summery stuffs for J’s school. Need to buy new cap/ hats. His head gotten bigger. Poor boy. Told me that it’s tight.
Then realized that it’s not wise to buy clothes that are oversized too early even though it’s on sales. I bought some pants for J last year. They are too big. Now they are too short. Waste money.
And about keeping clothes for the 2nd kid? Different season so not sure how much he can rewear the stuffs from J because J is a winter baby.
Born Liao then decide what need to be restock.
Or else buy now later cannot fit also stupid.
So TIP for new mothers/ parents, don’t buy and stock.
It’s growth spurt or whatever, suddenly size 98/100 don’t fit anymore when they should be.
Hand me down. Good to have. J is kinda skinny so he can only wear pants/ jeans that has adjustable waist. Some don’t have so end up I have to buy more too.
Anyway as parents. We love shopping. So we will buy anyways. ☺️☺️☺️
I just called HR regarding maternity leave. Coz I have totally no idea what must be done already. So anyway she is informed that I’m on leave on Monday, so should be ok now. Part of the salary comes from the insurance company so I will just send her a copy of whatever I sent to the insurance company.
Other than that. TH is still in a lot of pain. He tried to drive yesterday. Still having fever. Probably the graft being attack.
Weather yesterday was awesome.
So we went to our nearby playground
And brought the digger along
He wanted to eat his muffin on the mountain. I was talking to a fellow mom somewhere else.
And a lady bug flew into his finger. A mini one.
He got excited of course.
Got home. Pop him inside the bathtub. While I cook dinner for him, TH and myself. And running in and out to check on him.
He had noodles, TH has porridge and I had Japanese curry.
All fed and done by 7pm. 🤗
So exhausted so I zonked out and woke up at 1030pm to inject insulin, measured glucose level and pee.
