Long wait at the gynae's clinic this morning.

But she self-entertained with cornflakes.

Also said hello, thank you and byebye to the doctor, complete with a flying kiss.

So different from when she last came with us!

She's also more interested in looking at Meimei now!

"Is this Meimei? Where is Meimei?"

😘😘😘

Meimei is doing well!

She's gained about 800g.

Weight is now around 1.9 to 2.1kg.

Clarissa at 32 weeks was 1.8kg (based on my own records) but Doctor said it was a range of 1.8 to 2kg.

I gained 2kg. 😦
Doctor said he'd have to start nagging if I kept this up. 😂

I'm not sure why the weight gain this time is so hard to control.

I had a big jump of 3kg in a month when I had Clarissa, but I was able to keep it under control after that horrific weight gain and was on average gaining 1kg each month.

Gained almost nothing in the last 2-3 weeks, while Clarissa continued to grow.

I've stopped taking tea breaks, and I don't eat much rice during dinner (coz too bloated). And I try to take wholemeal wholegrain types of carbs.

So maybe it's the occasional ice cream that's causing this? 🙊

Got to control my diet, because I really want her to stay in there until Nov and come out smoothly. 💪💪

Met up with my JC/LEP friends!

We were supposed to meet at 230pm for coffee, but since our timing was odd we decided to go there for lunch and wait for the rest to arrive.

But in the end most of us came earlier.

I always say they are the people who have been making me laugh since I was 17.. and they still make me laugh so many years later, even though we meet only once a year on average.

It's a very nice place!

One of my friends recommended it because it's kids friendly with a play area just next to the tables.

But the food here is actually good!

I didn't take any pictures (erm too preoccupied) but we tried the pasta (don't know the name coz it was the hubs' and I took a bite), waffles with scrambled eggs and baco, French toast, fries and calamari.

And they are all good!

Especially the pasta, waffle and French toast.

And this girl had a lot of fun.

Though she wanted Daddy to stay close most of the time and was only comfortable to play on her own after some time.

And she was also interacting with my friends?

Pretending to spray water on them.

Still a little shy but she showed a bit of her cheeky self.

As expected she didn't want to take a nap when we got home.

The hubs was feeling under the weather so I asked him to take a nap while I spent time with the bubs reading and playing.

But she got quite whiny for no apparent reason and became quite #dramaqueen about not being able to get off the bed.

So I tried to remind her she had a choice to nap but she didn't and now she's tired and whiny and throwing tantrums.

She started wailing. 😂

I had to pick her up from the floor while she continued crying bitterly while exclaiming, "Mummy said I'm naughty!"

"I didn't say that! I said you were tired and so you became whiny!" I protested.

"No you said I'm naughty!"

"No I didn't!"

"Yes you said I'm naughty!"

😂😂😂

In the end I had to say "yes yes I said you are naughty" and gave her a long hug before she stopped crying and was ok again.

#dramaqueen

Love this picture of the two #lovebirds. 😄

Close to bedtime, she was talking to her Daddy about swimming lesson tomorrow and got emo.
Said she wanted Daddy and Mummy to join her in the pool, and started tearing. 😂

My friend was here to visit and was about to leave so I wanted her to say goodbye to my friend.

So Daddy quickly humoured her and said, "okok we'll go to the pool with you. now can you say goodbye to auntie first?"

She looked at him with slight reproach in her eyes and said:

But you haven't kissed me yet!

😂😂😂

Need to be so loveydovey or not?

We were preparing her for bed and she said to me, "Mummy we need to send message to Daddy's phone to say good night!"

We do that whenever the hubs is not home by the time she goes to bed (which is quite often). I'll ask her to say good night to him over WhatsApp voice message.

"But Daddy is here ah, don't need to send message!" I said to her and the hubs also started to protest.

With a cheeky look in her eyes she turned to look away from her Daddy and asked me, "HUH? Where is Daddy? I don't see him ah!"

She was trying her best to look serious but she burst out laughing.

Daddy jumped in front of her and declared, "I'm here!!"

And she broke out into an uncontrollable giggle.

So cheeky!
