I like the feel of being touched, i guess so does my baby, but we (hubby and me) seldom do it. Occasionally i would put my hand on my belly if the baby makes me feel uncomfortable with his "unceasing" kicking. But it's less bonding between hubby and the baby, perhaps the enthusiastic of having new is over. We went for the checkup together on my previous pregnancy, but this round, i have to go alone or sometimes with Jo only. Hubby doesn't have much understanding of each scan i go, basically gets the information through phone only. Altogether he just followed me twice to clinic, first on my first checkup on 25.11.06 and the 3D scan on 26.2.07. He didn't have any expression while doctor showing us the clear baby face, his excuse was "i'm thinking about my coming board meeting." That's happened on "our" last scanned before he flown back to China and he wasn't a boon companion as my expectation.
However, Jo is the exceptional as he would take his initiative to "sayang" his brother everyday. He doesn't show any jealousy so far, somemore he is very thoughtful to talk with his brother. He even said "i don't want to buy toys anymore, money give didi buy nen-nen" the other day. But he had forgotten his promise when we passing by the toys shop as he wanted to buy toy again.
Recently Jo told me he wants "more-more" didi and meimei, he then continued to allocate each "didi for mummy, meimei for papa, baby for Jojo", i told him baby will be his didi soon, but he refused it and keeps saying "didi for mummy, meimei for papa, baby for Jojo", so, what does it mean?
I started to feel "something" about my baby yesterday, i guess might be his fist or toes. Hubby said he couldn't feel it though he put his palm on my belly, but he could feel the baby movement and kicking. We wondering what he did inside? Stretching? Yawning? Swimming? Drinking? Suddenly, Jo put his Ultraman's aeroplane and Hello Kitty's camera on the top of my belly, wow..that's amazing to see the aeroplane moving left and right. The baby certainly seemed like having fun with the toys offered by Jo.
The another big headache is during my delivery, i can't ensure whether hubby will be by my side or not? For me, i'm ok with his absence but i don't want him be absent as it's really unfair for the baby. As you miss the moment you will miss it forever, the process won't be returned and be reviewed again. So, should i opt for "induce" and fix the date? Be frankly, i prefer it happens naturally. But who can confirm the date? Unless hubby takes leave earlier, but no point to have empty wait there since nobody knows the exact date coming. Phooey....
p/s: Oh oooohh....another 100 days to go!!
