But it is really difficult to walk up the stairs, especially when the hall is situated on the 2nd floor. And moving around the tables is really not easy, when the chairs are arranged too close to each other. But I really enjoyed myself, this time and the attention I got with this super big belly!

It is a relief to me that someone is entertaining her while I can complete my work and take a rest. Thank goodness it is also a public holiday, so that I could spend more time on bed instead of having to handle her alone at home.
Some funny questions from her here:
- Who gives birth to Buddha?
- Where is Buddha now?
- Can you also give birth to one Buddha?
- How can I see Him now?
I lighted a candle for my family, on this very special day of Wesak, hoping that they could get through this moment smoothly.
All the best to you Lin, and may you recover soon.
I am sorry if you have to bear with me with the overloaded postings on my blog these 2 days (and probably your google reader too, if you use one).
Am really going to take a break today and rest more on bed now.
I do not know how the sound is being produced, but it does really seems weird to me. I remember I had the same experience when I carried my girl in my first pregnancy too.
Anyone with the same experience?
May God give me some strength and let me be just well enough to handle her, for this one more week before our helper arrives.
After some serious consideration, and a few opinions from some good friends, we decided to put our decision on hold and check out more on the 2nd hand Maclaren Twin stroller, hoping to get the best
bargain for the boys.
- May each and everyone on earth be well, peaceful and happy at this very present moment, and also each day of their life.
- May the babies in my womb delivered safely to this world, without any complication.
- May the sick recover quick and happy.

Today, I almost cannot walk when the pain on my left is so extreme. I feel like bursting apart, my pelvic bones are going to break each time I step my left foot onto the floor (Twin 2 almost engaging?)
Just imagine I have almost 2 more months to go (my EDD is July 10th) and even if the boys come out earlier, say 36 weeks, I still have to bear the growing weight for another 1 more month!!
Really cannot think of anything that would be more painful than twin pregnancy.

Now the image is getting worse. When we on the TV, the image on the screen is very blur. Even my poor girl had to endure on the poor image when she watches her favourite DVD. Not sure it is due to the malfunction of one of the element in the electronic box. Although we can easily send it for repair, I guess it is also about time to get a new TV. If only we have the budget at the moment!
Since she is still young, I gather that she is still easy to train her. Going wrong in the basic of parenting from young would definitely lead to many problems when they go into their teenage years.
So, parenting is really the greatest challenge, isn't it?
But since my tummy is so huge now, and I can hardly bend myself, I get hubby to shower for my girl. Sometimes this little girl will just storm into the bathroom while hubby is in the midst of showering! Just imagine if the bathroom lighting is bright, what would she sees at her level? Geee…..

Initially I was very hesitate to take the pictures, since I am too “bulky” and do not think that my elephant arms and legs would look good. With the angle she captured, I would say, they are really fantastic! Just nice to capture my tummy (minus off the scars and patches), a little cute girl and a loving looking hubby posing together with me.
I think from about age 3, I placed a stool by the sink to let my girl stand to wash her own hand. Even though most of the time she does not get them clean properly, I still think it is a good training to let her be independent especially on cleaning herself. Initially she loves to stand by there, spending quite sometime to play with the running water, and especially the soap!
And now, she wants to shower by herself...imagine how much our water bill increased over the last month, Arrgghh!!!!
Seeing her this time is really great as she injected lots of positive thoughts towards my pregnancy, and it gives me lots of confidence that I will be able to go through this journey very easily. She shared with me some very positive reaffirmation and even showed me some wonderful birthing videos.
I really feel recharged and more confidence that my twins and I will really do good in the coming days till the end of my pregnancy journey. Thanks Wai Han!
They rather take a short cut and accept the fact they cannot produce enough milk for their baby. That is why we see a lot of “artificially” overweight babies nowadays whom might even be overweight as they grow.
If only more campaigns are made to create the awareness on the importance of breastfeeding!
Tandem strollers are best as it is the only way a person can handle 2 babies at one time. However due to the size, it is not going to be easy to maneuver especially in shopping malls escalator. Some even said it is easier handling two single strollers at one go.
I told hubby, that I feel really blessed that our marriage our love is still going strong. Wonder is it so normal for husband and wife to have sour relationship like that when a marriage is still that new…..

I wish they all grow up soon so that I can go for a good vacation again. A romantic gateaway with dear hubby would really be good to unwind all the parenting pressure.
Since yesterday morning, I have been experience very bad pain on the left of my stomach until I cannot even walk anymore. Silly as it sounds, me as a 2nd time mum, cannot even tell if it is Braxton Hicks, tightening or contraction (or my boys are punching each other inside!). I just know that the pain really numbs my whole stomach and it get worse in the evening after I woke up from my evening nap.
So scared I might give birth anytime, I quickly take a shower, and have the remaining things pack into my hospital bag. Not wanting to make unnecessary trips to the hospital, we quickly went to scan and check up at a nearby clinic to diagnose the problem.
Thank goodness there is no sign of delivery since I am only 31weeks+!
Good news is that both my babies are positioned head down now (cephalic) and the pain is probably due to the pressing weight towards my pelvic (previously Twin 2 was breeched).
For mummies who wish to have their baby head down and have a normal delivery, do try:
* Visualize that the baby in your womb has turned
* Speak to your baby
* Do exercise on four
It really works for me, when QQ was breeched and this time my twins. Just hope that my twins remain in this position ( although it’s gonna be very painful for me) so that I could have a normal and easy delivery again this time!
I am still at the moment searching for a twin stroller (and at the same time hopping to get rid of my single stroller).
Coincidently at the MJ Forum, there is a mum who wanted to give away her Kohler twin stroller, just for free!!! Yippee!!!!!
It is an umbrella stroller therefore the stroller can only cater babies from 6 months onward. Therefore we are still considering to buy a twin stroller, either 2nd hand or a brand new one (if it is not too expensive).
Moving into my 32 weeks, I think I am going to turn into the biggest elephant on earth. My tummy is so heavy that I almost cannot move, not even when I lie down on bed. It really takes very great effort just to move my heavy tummy from the left to right. I tell you, it really hurts like hell not to mention sitting down for long.I cannot imagine what my days are going to be like when this pregnancy advance further. Of course I would still love to delay the delivery of my babies until they gets bigger.

There are not much time left so I take this opportunity to enjoy all my freedom with QQ now.
Once in a while, we will dine out after I pick her up from school. Audrey (my playgroup mate and also my dear friend who is staying nearby ) and I will bring our kids to eat out once in a while. Her elder son is in the same school as QQ (remember the boyfriend she had at the swimming pool)? They also go to the same playgroup each Saturday.
Bet QQ will be bored stuck at home once her brothers arrive, HAHAHA!!!!
Mummy’s weight: 79KG
Weight: Twin 1 (1.8kg), Twin 2 (1.5kg)
Positioning: Twin 1 (Cephalic-head down), Twin 2 (Breech)
Placenta: Most likely sharing one placenta (so shall be look-alike twins!!)
Uterus Height: 38cm (pretty BIG)
Since a friend of mine (who has triplets) has been admitted into ward for close monitoring, I managed to visit her. At only 32 weeks, guess how many kgs of babies she is carrying now? 1.6+1.6+1.7 = about a pack of 5KG rice!!
And gosh, she tummy looks REALLY BIG, amazingly with NO STRETCH MARK unlike me!!
