Hoping to get pregnant soon...

Followed on from my previous post on a Brand New 2008, there are few things that I'm looking forward to in 2008, one of which is to get pregnant.

I was talking to some friends about 2008, what's our plan and what are we looking forward to and all. When I mentioned about trying for 2nd baby this year, I've got that "look" from ALL of them! Surprised and shocked...

You see...Most things told to us about pregnancy are usually bad...Pregnancy, as the world views it, is nine months of misery! Most people expect a pregnant woman to get depressed, to be moody & blue, to miss her mum and hate her husband, to be an overall basket case for nine months! It's supposed to be a terrible experience for the husband who will have to make every single effort to keep his wife happy because she is sick to her stomach, has morning sickness, craves pickles & ice-cream and hates sex! Then comes to delivery part, or birth, as the world says, should be equally a disaster! So all in all, it's not a pretty picture and certainly not a pleasant experience both for the wife as well as the husband.

Therefore I understand why my friends were giving me that "look" coz all of them are either single or married without kids as yet....

I guess I was blessed during my first pregnancy, so it really wasnt a bad experience. I was actually a very happy pregnant woman! I still remember over-hearing a close colleague of mine telling another person that she has not seen me smiling & laughing away so much in her whole life! hahaha...

My morning sickness was not too bad, just a very very mild one, and I tried many recipes to overcome the terrible feeling of morning sickness. As for craving, I didnt have weird cravings, just lots & lots of mangoes! And that's all I could remember..oh ya! There was this one period of time when I craved for "ham-chin-peng" (a type of chinese pastries) every other day!

During the first trimester, since there was mild morning sickness, I worked from home pretty often. Then throughout the second and third trimester, I dressed up brightly in those pretty clothes with my usual make-up to work everyday, feeling blessed, happy, proud and excited about my pregnancy!

When it was delivery time, no dount there were some worries, but no big deal under God's hand. Contraction started around 5.30pm and baby was delivered at 11.56pm the same day...without epidural, natural birth of our lil bundle of joy!

So why wouldnt I look forward to my 2nd pregnancy? Do I have any reason at all to NOT look forward to it? I know and I believe God is in control of all things, therefore if I'm blessed with a baby, He will take care of me and the baby throughout the pregnancy period...

At the moment, I really don't want to ever go through pregnancy, but I might change my mind one day. But only if I find the right guy and I would like to be happily married, of course! I was thinking of adoption as well since there's so many kids who need a home and love. But right now I want to leave the country and follow my dream, so no babies in the near future! I love kids, that's why I want to become a teacher and work with them, just as long as I can give them back to the parents at the end of the day. :)

My wife was lucky not to have any morning sickness at all. Planning for no. 2 next yr...

Is there any target month for your second child? haha... Like I hope to get one next yr in sep...

sharlydia said...

dio - so ur wife was lucky too, like me! But i really thank God for that...

Well, I'm hoping to get pregnant right now, then I can have another sept baby since my first baby was conceived around this time too 2 years ago...But whatever it is, I'm sure God has His plan for us, so we just need to submit our plan to His authority...
