Yikes! Third trimester is here. Where has all the time gone?!
We’re making good progress towards relocating my parents here. That said, some logistics can only be sorted out in order: Making room for our live-in helper, shifting some of our furniture to my parents’ new place nearby and setting up the baby nursery. Maybe we’ll do an IKEA run next week?
I officially applied for maternity leave from work – 3 months off followed by a 3 day flexi-work week for 2 months. One colleague gave me a new baby bottle steriliser once I start mixing breast and bottle feeding upon my return to work. Thank God for a supportive work-life environment, friends and family!
From now on, I should gain a pound or ~500g a week which puts my final estimated weight gain at 13-14 kg – on par for most Asian pregnancies. I haven’t done a glucose screening test yet (supposedly done between weeks 24-28) as my regular urine tests have been normal so far. Will check with the doc on that.
