Well, I'm still pregnant and walking about like a penguin, hehehee...
People have been asking when I'd be having the baby.
It won't be long from now.
The baby seems to be excited too, and enjoying his last week inside.
Alhamdulillah my medical routine checkups at the clinic show no sign of problems.
All the nurses commented on the thickness of the 'little red Pregnant Mother's book' .
My bags are almost ready [kept packing and unpacking, checking and rechecking, huhu].
The house is still topsy-turvy but I'm shutting an eye, hahaha. Husband will have to clear up the rest of the mess before the guests arrive.
Everything is ready except one important detail, sigh.
We still haven't found a female companion for me and baby during confinement.
Still nobody to help take care of the baby, cook, and keep an eye on my health until I regain my strength after the C section.
In other words, a live-in Muslimah companion.
We've asked more than 50 people.
Unlike Chinese confinement ladies, Malays don't want to stay for the nights.
Both the grannies are too old and feeble to take the responsibility.
Can't rely on husband, as he'd be out of town on official duties during my confinement.
I dare not take in a unknown foreigner. Besides, don't plan to have a live-in maid when I'm back to work.
We're still hoping and praying that the right lady will turn up soon.
Otherwise,we'd have to resort to the contingency plan, which might cause certain inconveniences.
I'd be going to the hospital this weekend, if not earlier.
InsyaAllah the delivery will be next week.
Finally, I'm in my final 9th month, hehehe... I'm trying to be cool about it :P
