Although this is going to be my second time entering the labour room, I'm now feeling so nervous knowing that I can go any day. The due date is actually on the 13th of the month. My two bags are packed, one is mine and the other one is where I put the baby's stuff. The medical card is always ready in the car.
Maybe it's because I know what to expect, which makes me feel so nervous. I'm still working at the office. Have to finish and tidy up works before I'm away for maternity leave. I think I will just work until there's sign of labour. Because I better spend my maternity leave with the baby later, rather than now while waiting for the baby to arrive.
The second thing that triggers my anxiety is to know the fact that my tummy is small. People just don't believe that I'm actually at the final stage of the pregnancy. And that makes me freaked out. I hope my LO is doing just fine, like what the doctor has been mentioning. Sheraz was 3275 grams when I delivered him. I'm actually a bit concerned how much weight this baby is gaining, but the most important thing is that he's healthy.
And last, just wanna post the latest picture taken yesterday. Sheraz already gets the idea that he's going to have a younger company soon. insyaAllah.
This is a post about Sheraz riding his bike! For record purpose. LOL. (Warning: Some information may be out of date.)
I once posted about Sheraz's tricycle which we bought somewhere early last year (January 2011). He was 16 months old. Here are the snippet photos of the post.
So we bought him a bike at the end of last year (December 2011) - He was 2 years and 3 months old. We were so proud that he could pedal and steer so well at the first attempt. But note, he only could push the pedal half way round. He just didn't seem to get enough push with one pedal to get the other one back round. Here's a video of how he rode the bike.
He's been riding the bike for about 9 months now. I was just out of idea on how to train him. He didn't listen and I thought that he's just comfortable with the way he pedaled. AND guess what, only recently he's able to pedal a full circle! Oh I'm such a proud parent. Now that I don't have to worry. He'll need to practice more so we can consider to take the training wheels off.
Revealing my pic on the blog. This picture was taken when I was 32 weeks. I'm slightly bigger now. When I say slightly it means really slight. People keep 'complaining' that I seem to be carrying small. My doctor said the size of the baby is okay, everything is fine. I just hope that my LO is growing the way he should be.
The new LO will arrive soon and we are preparing Sheraz to be a big brother. We need more space especially when the baby arrives. So we decided that Sheraz has to sleep in his own room.
When he was 6 months old, we moved him to his own nursery. Everything was fine and I did blog about it here. However it lasted only 2 months because of a typical old wives' tale. People just got 'paranoid' to know that a 6-month old boy doesn't co-sleep with the parents.
We had his cot transitioned to a toddler bed, and it was attached to our bed, side by side. Even though he had his own bed, somehow the three of us always ended up cramped in our queen-size bed. You know it's not comfortable. Furthermore the tiniest among us tends to sleep so oddly! He's active even when he's sleeping. Hitting us and sometimes trying to climb onto us. Then there goes the head-butting or pushing us to one side of the bed. He sleeps everywhere! It's funny that he always gets half of the bed while I and DH have to share the other half. Imagine if I have to co-sleep with the baby later. Wouldn't it be dangerous or what?

His Room now
As of today the little boy has been sleeping for three weeks in his own room. We purposely do it now, not later when the baby comes. Because we don't want him to feel left out by letting him go. I and DH bought a new bed for us and recycled the old one for Sheraz. Oh yes I'm so jealous, at the age of 3 he has a queen-size bed. But knowing how active he is when he's sleeping, I think it just suits him. Still attaching the bed rail, on one side of the bed. I'm not a fan of birds that are angry LOL, but our little guy loves them so much, and we coincidentally found a set of of bedding during the Raya sale. When he first saw his room, he was like "Wow!", "Wah!" He just loves it alhamdulillah.
