Aidan - 10 days old

Ok..am beginning to feel more like a mother of a new borne baby - tired and am lacking sleep!!

Aidan has been pretty fidgety lately, especially after his feed. He simply refuses to sleep and will just look at us with his unblinking eyes..He likes to be rocked so he would start making noises till we pick him up to cuddle him. It's still okay during the daytime but when he does that in the middle of the night, waliao..! Thankfully I have the confinement nanny with me..or else I would be totally exhausted! The greatest achievement now is to be able to rock him to sleep at the quickest time ever and not have him wake up when we place him in his cot...

Hmm..the Malay massage seems to be working. Have gone through two sessions so far and last check, I've lost abt 2+kg. I was about 67kg [put on abt 17kg] during my pregnancy and upon discharge from the hospital, I was about 59kg. I'm now about 56kg so I got about 7-8 more kg to go before I reach my pre-pregnany weight!! Hopefully, I should be able to do so by Aidan's first month celebration. I think I should start going to the gym downstairs as soon as my stitches don't hurt that much..Hopefully, that would be in about a week's time...*cross fingers*..Damn. I do seemed like I'm really obsessed with the weight thingy eh. Yeah..I'm superficial!

Re: Is that Mr Bean's bear?
Err..not Mr Bean's bear. Some generic bear that came with a flower basket :P.
Yeah..cute but exasperating. Coz he likes to suck his fingers/hands and scratches his face at times, we prefer to keep the mittens on his hands most of the time but half the time, Aidan would have taken them off himself *sigh*~~~

One of my friends swear by this book called On Becoming Baby Wise. According to her, it teaches you how to set a routine for your baby so he sleeps throughout the night! Went to look for it in Borders, but it was out of stock. Hope you have better luck!

I've actually got a few books on training ur kid to sleep through the night and there are some pretty good websites like parenthood.com that offers advice too BUT it's a little early to start training the kid at 2 weeks old as their 2/3 hour feed is necessary at that time. I think one can start training their babies only when they r about 1 month plus old.
I realised that it's better for Aidan to stay fidgety and awake in the day coz he will sleep more soundly at night :)
Having a baby is really a joyful thing..honest :)

Hey, care to tell me where you get the Malay massage done? Am superficial and weight-obssessed, too, even though I'm only about four months along. Thanks!

Hey Congrats on ur pregnancy! Darn..I could still remember the time I was 4mths preggy. Soon, you will have people [even mere acquaintances] wanting to rub your tummy. :) Btw, is it a boy or a girl? Which hospital/gynae r u going to?

My MIL was the one who'd gotten this Malay Massage lady for me. I can pass u the contact if u want but u could shop around first since you are only in ur second trimester. Some well-known spas eg. Spa Espirit at Holland Village offers such services too but they are a tad expensive - usually about $90-100 per day. I think mine is relatively cheaper at $70 per day.

Enjoy ur pregnancy. Some parts of it could be a little uncomfy, especially at ur 3rd trimester but it's worth it in the end! Also, if ur pain threshold isn't too high, ask for epidural in advance. Trust me..lotsa frens of mine wanted to be brave and went epidural-less but in the end, they had to request for it mid-way thru labour but not w/out going tru so much pain.
