Temporarily Living in Singapore
I used to be good about blogging and posted everyday for a while. After I got pregnant, little by little the frequency of my posting during a week became fewer and fewer. When my morning sickness peaked, I couldn’t even care about it. I seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth.
Around the same time, I started training for a race in Siem Reap, Cambodia, which took place in December 2011. (By the way, I still need to post about the awesome trip I made with my girl friends in Siem Reap.) My priority became going to bed early enough to get up early so that I can jog in the morning. I usually blog after my kids go to bed and because I started going to bed early, I no longer had enough time to blog. At the beginning it bothered me, then the guilt faded. I realized that since I’m not paid to do this, I needed to put my priorities straight.
Today I mark 36 weeks and am entering my last month, 9th month, of the 3rd pregnancy. There are 28 days till the due date. I left Jakarta and flew out to Singapore a week and a half ago so that I can have a baby here. I’m here with my second child. My husband and our first daughter came with us to drop us off in Singapore last weekend and went back to Jakarta as my husband has to work and our daughter has to go to school. Singapore is where I spent 3 years of my high school life. It’s surreal to be back living in the country where I spent part of my youth and preparing to have a baby. I am very happy.
Pregnancy is different for everyone and even each pregnancy is different for the same woman. This pregnancy for me has been the toughest among three I’ve experienced in terms of physical challenges during the third trimester.
Fortunately I feel much better since I moved to Singapore. I should be catching up with my blog, but the thing is that I have been falling asleep like a baby on the couch. I face my computer and next thing I know, I have passed out and wake up in the middle of the night. That’s why I haven’t blogged much.
I’d like to confess that I’ve been waking up starving in the early morning which never happened before coming to Singapore. I’m a beast. I try to wait till 5:00 and eat. I used to feel sick which helped me control the amount I ate and what I put in my mouth, but now I feel so much better that I’m out of control…
The next couple of months will be full of unknown for me and my family. I hope things will go well for us. My posting might get infrequent again (What do I mean by again? It’s already infrequent!). I will try my best to keep up with my blog. Thank you to those who have come visit my blog and read my posts!!
