Pregnancy Number Two: Almost there!

I had my last check-up today at Aberdeen Maternity.  The nice surprise was that the doctor was a fellow Malaysian.  I heard traces of a familiar accent and asked immediately, "Are you Malaysian, doctor?"  When she said yes, I beamed and said, "Me too!"  And of course being Malaysians, we traded tips on where to eat cheaply and well in Aberdeen, haha!

Number Two was checked and I was relieved to hear a good, strong heartbeat.  As I'd opted for a c-section again, I was then given a date for my operation.  It's June 12 and that made me laugh as I had thought that if it had been up to me, I would have chosen that date, I just like the way it looks.

The doctor and anaethesist then walked me through the procedure.  Even though I've had it done before, I'm feeling rather nervous about the whole thing.  I'm also remembering all over again the pain and discomfort!

In Jakarta, Dear Hubby hadn't been allowed to accompany me into the operation theatre but he can do so here.  I think he wasn't allowed in Jakarta because it was an emergency and they were focused on getting Connor out quickly and safely.  It's nice to know that he'll be by my side to welcome our second child into the world.

So... if you don't hear from me next week, you know I'll be lying in a hospital bed somewhere in Aberdeen cradling a newborn in my arms.  


  1. Happy safe and smooth delivery. May your confinement be a restful and relaxing recovery period. Look forward to more posts from you!

  2. Thank you! Doubt if I'll have any sort of confinement... the concept doesn't seem to exist in the UK, hehe!
