Cycle, Cycling, Cycled

Wasn’t keen in exercising after taking close to a 2yr mark hiatus. Gyms, exercise gear are no longer a big draw to me in keeping a good figure. All right more like what figure?! Anyways…e fact that I spontaneously joined mama Grace and bro Desmond on a cycling trip is like total amazement!

E plan was leisure cycling which turned out all right. Despite e cycling khakis on a high speed adventure, I pursued my own time own target mentality. No rush no catchup. Many times just me alone w my noisy bike, sun shinning bright and humming tunes to myself…Overall I did enjoy e close to 3hrs ride in Punggol.

Results. Muscle aches. Sunburns. A lok kok bike. Good thing this bike was well used before we considered it’s retirement.

Next up will b putting Eli on e vehicle and cruising down e waterway! 🙂

Contractions & Addictions

I am absolutely looking forward to the arrival of Elijah. However, it was not very pleasant yesterday at the weekly routine check-up to know that Eli is gradually having little space in me.

His poor knees are bent to accomodate his large tummy. I totally blame uncle mark for having his height. Recently, Eli is also getting quite a bit of hiccups – which explains the pulsating effect that I feel every night. Poor kid. I have issues of hiccups. Didn’t know it was ‘hereditary’.

So as per the lastest scan, I am having contractions that I am totally clueless about. TakingVentolin now which helps prevent preterm labour. The side effects only were felt when I left home for half an hour to get lunch. The cold sweat and trembling is no joke. I thought I was about to faint outside. Every step I felt woozy.

Well, as long as I do not give birth at home, any pills prescribed to me – gladly take it! I dun really want to go through the pain of natural birth. The pain doesn’t sound ‘natural’ at all. Even while typing this entry, I feel pressure below which makes me wonder are those even contractions or just purely my imagination.

It’s so scary!

While, fortunately I have Kairosoft games to help me pass the time & distracting me from the pressures. Anxiety wont help. I just want Mon to come quickly & see Eli face to face & start on my recovery process. After which, a safe entrance to NIE & start of juggling between work + kid + family + friends + exercise all over. Looking forward. I am officially tired of bedrest.

Tml will be a busy day packing up clothes & stuff to my parents’ place. Shall hang in there!
