Have booked the birth date to be on the 23rd December. Dr Tan says that I would need to check-in to the hospital on the 22nd and the op will take place in the morning so by X'mas time, I should be able to come back home to rest :). Anyway, he did mention that is a chance that Aidan may choose to arrive earlier than our planned date.
Spoke to mom at lengths over the phone yesterday morning. According to her, she had a tough labour with the girls and the boys were easy birth. She said that all her 4 children had arrived before the due date..I had arrived abt 2 weeks early and had weighed abt 2.8 kg. The smallest of her children was my bro (3rd youngest in family) who was over a month pre-mature and he weighed slightly less than 2kg. The other 2 kids (my eldest sis and youngest bro arrived abt a few days early and were both over 3kg). But darn, all my siblings grew up to be much taller than me [2nd youngest bro is abt 1.8m, sis is abt 1.64m, I'm 1.56m *sob*]. Mom says it was because I was a real fussy eater when young and used to spit out the food at my nanny who had a real tough time feeding me. If I'd known *sigh*, I would have gobbled up everything in sight but it's kinda late now.
I remember all 4 of us used to hate the time when we forced to drink our daily intake of cod liver oil [bleah]. I think I spitted out most of it :P~ But we loved our Flintstones vitamins and Ribena drinks [mummy says it's good for u :) ].
Well, hopefully, Aidan will not be a fussy eater like me. Mom was saying that it could be pay-back time soon [arghhhh!!]..aiyoh, how could she cuss me?! Can't wait..just a few more weeks time!!!!!
