week 6 and the doctor said I might have twins!

Even writing the title to this post shakes me a little.

I visited the doctor (GP) on week 5 to confirm that I'm pregnant and didn't know how my life would changed after that. I remembered I was on bed a lot. I couldn't even get up and I had work around that time. I was supposed to go to Taiping/Penang and then fly to Johor for work. My vomiting and nausea just started, I thought I could handle it, but I was so wrong. On that day when I was suppose to go Penang for a shoot, I vomited 3 - 4 times. I had to call and cancel work and worst of all, Marcus wasn't there as he was in Kuching for work that time. I could barely move, but luckily my brother live above me at another level in our condo, so he brought me food and make sure I was ok.

I remember the first time I vomited ( while pregnant ) I thought of my mom and I actually cried a little while vomiting. I wonder how she went through having 4 children. It was so suffering. Almost everyday I vomited, and the nausea feeling won't go away.

I felt like I was having a bad hangover everyday till the week 13. I was on bed most of the time, no strength at all... just lying down waiting to vomit. I couldn't even eat. Every time I speak, I felt like vomiting. I couldn't do anything and Marcus had to help buy food for me and clean the house after work. I can't stand the smell of detergents.... it's the worst.

 OMG THAT HORRIBLE SMELL! I don't know if you follow my instagram but I was into this cleaning product and even posted that THIS PRODUCT IS MY BEST FRIEND, well NOT THIS TIME! LOL I WAS RUNNING AWAY FROM IT! 

Marcus then told me that he will still need to travel for work and then thats when my mother in law comes into the picture! What a life saver. But I was still vomiting and almost admitted to the hospital due to dehydration. I went back to the clinic ( GP ) and asked for medicine to stop the nausea and vomiting, she then test my urine and then ask me to visit the ob/gyn if I continue to have the same vomiting problem as the colour pantone of the urine stick was high. She even gave me an emergency letter to one of the ob/gyn in Damansara Specialist just incase. We called her to make an appointment but she was only free on Monday and that day was Saturday. 


hahahahahah, she said I was vomiting a lot and she was checking my tummy ( press here, press there ) and suddenly in shocked, she looked at me and said... your uterus is slightly bigger than normal, might be twins! But she doesnt have an ultra scan so we couldn't scan it. 

I was in shocked ok! Honestly I cried after that, LOL! I was already feeling moody with all this morning sickness, (lying beside the toilet bowl kind) and now I might have twins? How to jaga???

( Yes, I know I think too far... and wasn't thinking straight at that time LOL )

Mom in law was with me and she prayed for me and told me, everything is a blessing, don't worry :)

That was that time when I posted this picture on my instagram with the caption : 
Seeing Double ( 9 weeks ago ) Follow me on instagram @ michiekins 

( My parents was still in China at that time for holiday )

I even told Marcus this, every time I vomited... 

Another worst part was I had no strength to do anything. I really hated that feeling... my home was messy and every time I just want to clean it but I can't.... I can't even fold clothes. That's how bad my morning sickness was. 

So by Monday, I visited Dr. Hu Shan from Damansara Specialist and .... ( to be continue )

Baby Books

We are taking our time to prepare for our baby and now that I'm much better, we started organising / cleaning our home and preparing ideas for the baby nursery. We hired a part time maid the other day and we actually spring clean our home from 12 noon till 7pm. There is a lot to clean in this 900 + sq condo. Hehe... I gave a way a few bags/ stuff to the maid and she was really pleased, perhaps thats why she did a really good job! Heh.

This is gonna be our baby's room :) Used to be my office but I have to give up my space for my baby. I have so many ideas flowing and can't wait to get started :) 

We might renovate this single bed frame  to a queen size bed as it might be dangerous for the baby to climb when he's/ she's one years old. But part of us wanted to keep this because if its a boy, he can imagine that he's in a battle ship and we can have to much fun with it. At least thats what Marcus said. We love this bed, we even called it our hamster bed / room :) small, cozy and fun to hang out at because of the layout of the bed frame.The sunken bed somehow makes us feel safer. Well, if its a girl, we might change it. 

I've been reading this book that my mother in law borrowed from her friend who breastfeeds both of her children, and YES I choose to breastfeed my baby! YAY! BUT this book was written in 1996.... so after spending one whole day trying to finish reading it, I thought it might be out of date and you know how things change quickly but Im pretty sure the basic is there....So, I actually use my Sony XPERIA Z1 Info- Eye Camera to check out this book. 

1. Take a picture of the book

 2. You can read the reviews :) How informative.

3. You can also see similar books related

Why, Thank you Info-Eye! The book gets quite a good review :) But I think I still need to get another book as I heard breastfeeding is hard if it's not latch on properly. Breast sore, crack and bleeding nipple... oh my... I hope I can go through this! 

Chilling with Malibu on a rainy day while reading the second book :) 

Have a great day everyone!

When I Knew I was Pregnant

Hey everyone! How was your Mother's Day? I went to church followed by lunch with my mother in law family while my mom and dad are in Singapore with Lina. Mothers have this special talent, in the bible, they always ask the husbands to love their wives but never ask the wives to love their husbands, do you know why? Because wives/mothers are natural lovers while husband/father needs to learn to love. Some quite kayu wan.. like Marcus hahah JK! 

Yesterday's pic at VCR, YES I've put on some weight as I've been eating more... Baby is growing fast and YES Marcus is getting fatter too 

Ok, todays topic is about finding out when I got preggers 

I call this.... women's instinct? 

Here's my story 

I seriously don't know why, but after my birthday... I felt like I was pregnant... After a week of celebration, I just got this feeling. I had no sign of pregnancy and I predicted even before my period arrives. I just knew. I also don't know why I was eager to find out even though I know my period due date is arriving...I just couldn't wait. 

I actually found out during the evening of the Elle Magazine launch in Zebra Square

Haha, I remember talking to Audrey(4ft9) when she asked me when am I going to have a baby during the Elle event, ironically I asked her the same thing last year during NN party where she was already pregnant but couldn't announce it till the first trimester was over. She said she was just trying but she was already pregnant because she announce it as it was still her first trimester. So, I didn't tell her also haha cos I also pantang. Hers is one mommy blog that I like because her baby was born prematurely and I followed her story and how strong she and Tim was. 

OK, now to the pee stick story! 

I actually tried it on the day before the event , but it come out ERROR, I was like WHHHATTTTTTT???? Waste money only 

So the next day I bought Clear Blue and one ciplak one to test...

I used to ciplak one first.. come out one line... so in my heart, ok not pregnant.. but after 20 mins, another line appeared but blurrrredddd. I was like WHHATTTTTTT!!!! Straight away I told Marcus I think theres a high chance Im pregnant, he was so happy... but I told him tomorrow I double confirm again. Instantly after that I created a group chat in whatsapp with my sister, Sheena and Jasiminne, titled 

Then they told me... I confirm pregnant, if not... the second line won't be out even thought its blurred

True enough, later at night, the second line came out so much clearer after the Elle Magazine Launch

I was nervous... 

So the next morning ( they said its best to try it in the morning ) I decided to try again, this time to pee on the RM 30 Clear Blue Stick the THIRD TIME

I waited for a while and then it came out that I'm five weeks preggers!

I was like whhattttttt... 5 weeks already? So fast!

Im sure a lot of you think my baby was conceived during my birthday getaway in Port Dickson, well everyone is wrong. 

It was during CHINESE NEW YEAR SECOND DAY, JANUARY 31 in the afternoon... Too much information? ahhahaha It's also a funny story how and what happened after that. I remember laughing a lot, and no we weren't drunk. It was about 3 pm on a hot sunny afternoon :p

When I went to the clinic to double confirm, the doctor told me this

" WAH, Chinese New Year also you all got time to do arrrr ? LOL "

It must be the wishes my parents gave me and Marcus, cos when we lou the YEE SANG, they said 
 GRANDCHILD PLEASE, CUCU PLEASE a lot of times and they lou so high, laughing and teasing me and Marcus. MANA TAU REALLY KENA! That was the first time our family had yee sang as we don't practise it.

Actually, to be honest, I told Marcus early this year that I don't want to get pregnant as Im busy with my bikini line and blog, and I told him by end of this year after SHEENA AND JOLYNA get married then only we can try. I was the bridesmaid for both of them and now I can't even help!!! and worst of all, I can't even attend Jolyna and Chris wedding as it clashes with my confinement days. Lucky Sheena pushed her dates haha! Saranghae! 

I was also telling Marcus that I don't want to delay my bikini line as it was planned for about a year already and after looking so long for the perfect material, we finally found it. Of course we wanna do our best and source for the right material and factory but that took quite a while. We planned this before our honeymoon trip. See, so long already. The designs were ready by then, but sourcing material was hard as we wanted certain colours.

Ok ok, back to pregnancy

After visiting the clinic to double confirm, Marcus and I was so happy... but I didn't tell my parents yet as they were on a holiday in China. I told the rest of the family and close friends only and everyone was excited. 

We were blessed with a child :) 

Then it hit me

OMG I WAS DRINKING SO MUCH DURING MY BIRTHDAY! ( I was already preggers by then ) You know all my friends who will feed me alcohol ( stares at Jolyna and Suanne ) hahahha this two drinkers made sure I had enough haha! Also, I ate so much sashimi that week and kena dog bite! I was so scared that I might miscarriage or the risk of birth defect will be high, but THANK HEAVENS, baby is fine! PHEW, because it was still at an early stage...


Actually, I don't anything about being pregnant. I don't really research about it. All I know was women will be 9 months preggers. I didn't even know many of them count by weeks! and total 38 to 40 weeks, I had no clue.


I research like crazy after that. What not to do and what not to eat. Didn't know that you need to know so many stuff when you are pregnant.


But I cannot makan, cis... 

I WANT SI HAM ( kerang ) ALSO! T_T

This was all still Week 5. I didn't know that Week 6 would changed my life. Till the next time, I will talk about that ok? :D Stay tuned and have a blessed day!

We're Pregnant

We're Pregnant :)

Hello everyone! Marcus and I are happy to announced that we are expecting our first born by October 2014. I am currently 4 months pregnant and one of the reason why I stopped blogging for a while was because I've been hit by morning sickness pretty bad.

I was thinking a way of how to announce my pregnancy to my blog readers and since that I blog about fashion mostly and I love fashion so so so much ( hopefully baby will too ) I decided to pose with a baby onesie! Isn't it cute? I can't wait to dress my baby up!

 I shall be blogging more about pregnancy in this blog starting now :) My first semester was horrible and I shall blog about my experience soon, I lost almost 4 kg, almost admitted to the hospital and even fainted :( But don't worry the baby is healthy, thats the most important part, let mamabear suffer. 

This blog is to remind my baby how hard mamabear went thru during pregnancy! hehe! Love you! 

Mamabear and Papabear posing with your ultrasound picture :) You were only 11 weeks here :) 
But this picture was taken when mama bear is already 15 weeks pregnant :)

Yup, papabear can't wait to play and toss you up in the air like what he's doing here. 
Hopefully not too high.... Mamabear so worried. 

I also wanna take this opportunity to thank a few people who helped me throughout the first trimester

My Loving Husband! 

He's been so patience with me and he really helped me around the house as I was bedridden most of the time.... I can't do anything at all because I was suffering from morning sickness. I felt so bless that I've got such a loving husband who goes to work, come home and clean the whole house and never complains. Our relationship became so much better after I got pregnant cos he said I was so calm and my mood was good, I never picked a fight! Of course la babykins, you work so hard, then come back and clean the house and clean Malibu's pee and poo poo... I also pity you la.. I know you very tired but don't worry my energy is slowly coming back and I shall help you more k! 

My Family

They were so excited when they heard about the news and straight away stock up my fridge with bird nest LOL ( daddy's side business is selling bird nest ) and they come to KL more often now to visit us and make sure I was ok as they are worried. My sister cried when she first found out and was so excited for us and even helped me around the house and shower Malibu whenever she's back from Singapore. My eldest brother expression was priceless! He was so happy when we told him :) and even help tapau food for me when Marcus went for business trips. Well, Nixon is in UK and is happy also! Cant wait to see you this summer! Study hard! 

My Mother in Law

I have the best! Like seriously, she cooks for me everyday and always make fruit juice and make sure I'm eating right. She's a nurse who used to work with a child specialist, I AM SO LUCKY RIGHT? Slowly, she's teaching me about how to take care of a baby as she also used to be a confinement lady. 
She will also help me clean my house and won't let me lift a finger. Thanks Mom! I am indeed so bless to have you :) 

My Fairy Godmothers

Jasiminne, Sheena and Lina, the baby's Fairy Godmother, yeah we kinda copy the 3 fairies from Sleeping Beauty hehe :) These girls were the first to know ( will blog about how I found how I was pregnant in the next post ) Thank you girls for being there for me, Marcus and I are so blessed to have you in our lives. Im sure you will spoil our baby but not too much yeah, cos I think I will be the bad cop while marcus will be the good cop :/ 

Ok lah, I should stop here or else I won't stop typing as Ive got many things to share with everyone! Just stay tuned for the next pregnancy post yeah :)

Have a good day everyone
