Hi MMers,

First of all, my sincere apologies for missing action for the past three months. 

Some of you may have noticed that I wasn’t that active in commenting and reading your blogs. I’ve been holding out delicious happy news from everyone. I’ve been ordered on bed rest for the past few months due to a condition called hyperemesis gravidariumOr more commonly known as morning sickness. 

I’ll twiddle my thumbs while I wait for you to click and connect in your mind. 

Yes! As of today, I am in my 4th month. While I do not have the full-blown morning sickness as serious as Kate Middleton that rendered me hospitalised, I did heave out almost all my meals every day for the past three months and lost 3kg instead of glowing and gaining weight. My obgyn suggested that I stayed in bed as much as possible to prevent any trigger that will cause me to run to hug my toilet bowl. 

Sorry, I wasn’t up for any cheerful reply, nor have the right frame of mind/health to read through anything more than 100 words without feeling nauseous and dizzy. Somewhat I’m grateful that we are all grounded and locked up at home, so I have extra pairs of hands to help around the house while I buried myself into pillows and blankets. We are all extremely excited, especially that someone who knows she will be a big sister soon. 

I’m feeling better now. Thank you so much for being so concerned, and all is well. The big arrival will happen at the end of this year. With so many of you that have been around during my first pregnancy in 2016 and celebrated the miracle of my first one, please stay tuned for the sequel. 

Ah, my announcement isn’t over yet! My second announcement is that I’m proudly vaccinated with my first shot of Pfizer. Under the advisement of my obgyn and the rising number of covid positive victims, I decided to go for my first shot yesterday. 

But if I am honest, the most significant push was from my husband, who said in earnest to me that he rather risk not having this second child in me than gamble my health because my daughter cannot live without her mummy, my parents cannot lose their daughter and he can’t afford to lose me. I’m no scientist, and neither am I a doctor, but I know that if I don’t take care of myself first, I may not have the chance to take care of those I love around me. 

So a big thank you to all of you who are patiently waiting for my replies and comments. I hope I can gather enough strength to visit and catch up on everyone’s stories in due time. Meanwhile, I hope this announcement piece delights you and perhaps brought a smile or even a little sunshine to your day today (finger crossed). 

Take care and stay hopeful.

  2. You are in my daily prayers and have been for some time, when I do my “prayer walk,” Kally. (https://capost2k.wordpress.com/?s=the+walk)
    Now I will add your second child (? I do not think you have others besides your daughter) to my and Jesus’ “visit” to South East Asia along with you, your daughter and husband.
    Keep all of us informed about your progress and delivery.
    ❤️&🙏, c.a.

      1. I am told that the work load MORE than doubles when one has a second child, but becomes less of an increase with each one after that. NOTE, not that the work gets less, but the INCREASE is less! 🤪
        But by the time one has 10 year-olds, they can pick up a lot of the extra. So by the fifth or sixth child, the work actually begins to decrease; this is assuming the parents have survived four or five kids‼️😂😂

Sending much love and healthy vibes. ♥♥♥

  4. Congratulations! I’m glad you’re feeling better, though morning sickness is terrible and not treated seriously enough by doctors. I had a friend who became so dehydrated from hers, she had to be hospitalized: all the attending doctor did, besides stick a tube of IV fluids in her arm, was yell at her that she had to eat or he’d place her in the psychiatric ward. (She was also suffering from depression, which was in her medical record, but no one had made note of her overwhelming nausea.) She eventually gave birth to a healthy pair of twins, but to this day she can’t forget how the doctors treated her. Stay well and take care!

  5. Thank you very much, dear Kally, for sharing this wonderful news! I wish all the best to you and the new one on-the-way :). During my second pregnancy, I had a lot of morning sickness and I also lost weight, but Daniele was a beautiful and strong baby of 3,5 kg! And I didn’t have to slim, after deliver. A big hug from Italy 🙂

  6. As a father of three (19,14, 1) and one on the way, you are about to embark on an amazing journey! You never realize how much you can love someone until you have a child. It’s a love like none other!

    My one year old daughter has brought me new life and energy. She is the subject of many blogs on my page.

    Take many pictures, their appearance changes so fast. Enjoy every little moment and accomplishment. Realize that the “clock of life” moves twice as fast when you have kids. My wife and I literally looked at each other wondering where the last 18 months have gone!

    Wishing you all the best with your new arrival. What a true blessing.


  7. I am soooo happy to hear you feeling better Kally!!! Thank goodness and what a sweet message from your husband. Take good care and hope you catch a break for the rest of your pregnancy my friend!!💖💖💖💖
