Canberra, Here I (we?) come!

The much awaited results are out and I've passed my exams and shall be graduating this July, so Canberra here I come!

More surprisingly, I managed to do even better this semester than the last although I was trying my best to complete and cope while battling morning sickness!

Maybe it is you, my baby who has blessed mummy with more intelligence and strength to overcome all these! In fact, I'm so happy and surprised that I managed to get 2 High Distinctions out of 3 modules for this semester - frankly, I thought I might even fail! Overall, I'm giving myself a pat on the shoulder - I think I have done well - my final results are :
  • 2 Credits
  • 2 Distinctions
  • 2 High Distinctions

Can you see me smiling from ear to ear now !! :)

Thank you my dear hubby and baby for being there for me in the last year, particulary the last few months when work and study for my Master's was ABSOLUTELY CRAZY (weeks for baby) ! :)

Congratulatory Cards!

One of the sweetest thing HB did aft Dr Gordon confirmed my pregnancy on 3/6/06 was to stick a "Best Wishes" hand-written/home-made card for me. He surprised me by pasting it in the Living room mirror so I would see it when I got up aft my nap that day.

Claire & Sarah were my usual die-hard fans who constantly gave me their works of art! I love these handmade cards!

Aunty Kay also sent me a card and a DVD all the way from Auz, THANK U VERY MUCH AUNTY KAY, muaks from me and baby!

Here's all the stuff :-

Yipee! My EXAMS are finally over!!

As I struggle to finish my last paper, I can't help but feel so relieved and light - like am dancing in the air!!! FINALLY, I DID IT !!! I can finally PUT MY LEGS UP - literally!!! haha!

Now, the stress will come - am I going to make it? Can I graduate this semester? Frankly, I can't do another semester, I MUST PASS!! I don't care if I don't do well - I just want to pass. It's been a tiring, stressful and stretching year. I'm glad I pushed on and I'm even more glad I have a good study partner, Magdalene! We work well together, egging each other on ...

Now am looking forward to results, graduating in Canberra and going for the next check-up on 27/6/06 to see our precious! Can't wait to see him ... wished I had the scan at home so I can check on him everyday! I wonder if hb is as excited and kan-cheong as I am?

New Queen of the Ng Household

I am now officially the Queen of our home... hb has not allowed me to do anything but to eat and sleep - literally! Actually, I'm so glad that he's so sweet as I've never been more tired in my life! It's worst than staying up for 24 hours to finish assignments.

When the sleepy bug hits you ... you are just gone, your eyes will not listen to any reason as it closes its lids on you. I can't believe how much I can sleep! Naps in the afternoon yet I can sleep more at night. By 10pm each night, I'm in dreamland .... *yawn*

Breaking the news to hubby

Hb will be back early so going to pick him up from airport. How shall I tell him? Hmm, wait till we get home then break the news to him.. don want to do it in the car. From the 15 mins that I met hb to the drive back seemed like an eternity and I can hardly contain my excitement and laughter... but I did it!

Once home, hb went to the kitchen to get a drink and I shoved the test kit into his hands. He didn't even know what that was! I kept asking him to just 'look lah!' . After a few seconds, he asked if I was pregnant and I said, 'yah'. He was very shocked but very happy.

Still, he said we should listen to Jen and get a more reliable test kit. At 10am, walked down to mall's pharmacy and bought Clearblue. We both waited in anticipation but realised that after 15 mins, the kit is faulty! Darn!! Went to pharmacy to get another replacement. This time used another brand that requires you to collect and drop urine droplets into the kit. As the urine passed through the window, the significant pink line appeared immediately without needing us to wait for a few minutes. It's 11.15 am ... wah, we really have an affinity with 11.15s?

Called Jen who suggested I'd see a gynae to confirm. Quickly called Charmaine to get Dr Gordon's no. and his nurse asked me to be there by 12.30pm. Hb insisted to drive me there although he just got back from a long flight.

In Dr Gordon's room, I hopped onto the examination bed and Dr Gordon said if we were to see a round pouch with a ring around it, means I am preggie. Held my breath and almost immediately Dr Gordon located our 'seed of love' and congratulated me. I am 6 weeks & 5 days today and our baby will be due 23/1/07! I was very happy but still light-headed from the shock.

Hb was waiting in the car downstairs. As I got in the car, he didn't say much... guess he must have known or could see it from my face! We drove home, me to rest but the euphoria was just too great to allow me to sleep so ended up telling family and friends the good news. Even hb was too excited to sleep and quickly spread the good news to his family and friends.

Scan above shows the little ring ... can u see it? somewhere at the lower right with 2 little pluses

How it all began ...

02/06/2006 is a very special and unexpected day for me. Brought the girls out for shopping as Claire's birthday is round the corner. My period is late and I put all that down to accumulated stress from work, assignments and the looming exams! Decided to buy a pregnancy test kit since it was on sale at Watson's.

As usual, fell asleep on the sofa once I hit home in the evening... have been wondering why I've been so tired recently... must be that darn time of the month again and the lack of sleep trying to finish up all my assignments.

When I finally roused at 11pm, decided to have a shower before hitting the sacks again. This was when I decided to try the kit as I have no patience to wait till next morning... and guess what? There were 2 lines... I'm pregnant! What a shocker! It was 11.15pm and I quickly called Jenny who was also shocked out of her socks and asked me to buy a more reputable kit the next day to confirm.

I was also petrified as I just gobbled the remaining half of the honey pineapple a couple of hours ago.. lucky Enzo helped me with half or it. Hugh suggested I drink some warm water to 'dissipate' acidicty effect if I was worried! So, I drank a whole flask and ended up not sleeping but waking to go to the loo the whole night.

HB will be back tomorrow early morning... how shall I break this special news to him?
