~Closing of 2009~

2009 just went passed like that. Let me recall some events that happened in each of the month.

January 2009 – Chinese New Year month. We invited my family and dear's family over for steamboat-cum-BBQ dinner on separate occasions. It was a great gathering and we were thinking of having it next year again. :)

February 2009 – Usual working month. V-day, we just watched a movie.

March 2009 – Usual working month.

April 2009 – The month that I saw the "+" sign and was very happy! Dear was overseas when I told him about it and when he came back, he quickly bought the test kit again for me to confirm. It was a REAL positive and we arrange to see the gynae as soon as possible. :)

May 2009 – I was hospitalised for 1 week cause of bleeding externally and also bleeding of placenta. I had to have the oil-based jab daily for 2 weeks. Painful ah! Anyway, it was a bad time to be hospitalised. Hospital only allowed 2 visitors at a time due to H1N1, dear was overseas and couldn't come back, parents went Japan for travelling and Livia was helping the girls with exams. Noelle was pregnant also so not too convenient for her to come. Luckily, I still have bro and Leona. Leona came everyday to visit me and bought food for me at times also. It was so tiring for her that I think she fell sick after I was discharged. Opps! Dear managed to rush back the night before I was discharged and he stayed with me for the last night in TMC. I took hospitalisation leave after I was discharged.

June 2009 – I was on hospitalisation leave. Was resting at home most of the time. Luckily, bb Ashton was growing well during this period.

July 2009 – We sent Little Tristan to childcare at Agape Little Uni. It was horrible for the first 2-3 weeks. He was either sick or cry very badly whenever we sent him to school. It was pretty heartbreaking for me but it got better as time goes by. He slowly got used to it.

August 2009 – Backed to work. Busy busy! Did my detailed scan. BB Ashton is doing well! Little Tristan started to fall sick quite often as he caught all the virus in school. Bleh... :(

September 2009 – We celebrated Tristan 2 years old birthday for this month. Had 3 celebrations:
1. Had celebration with the Sept 2007 babies at Tampines One Amore Centre. Only a few of us attended but it was a good gathering meeting the mummies and letting the kiddies play with each other.
2. With his Shichida classmates. Guiwei bought some cupcakes and Emily packed some goodie bags for the kiddies. It was a mini celebration but was fun though.
3. Booked a private room at Yan Palace for celebration with my family and dear's family. Little Tristan was sick on that day but can see that he tried to bear with the uncomfortable feeling and tried to enjoy himself. We even had a karaoke session in the room. Left around 11+ pm and by then Little Tristan had fell asleep.
September is also my birthday month. Celebrated my big 3 birthday (actual day) with my sisters cause dear was not free. We had dinner at Seah Street Deli. But dear managed to rush back home in time and bought a cake back to celebrate with me. Strawberry cake...yummy! Actually dear did celebrate with me but just a day earlier and we had dinner at Halia Restaurant at Botanic Garden. :)

October 2009 – Dear's birthday month. I booked a room at Marina Mandarin for one night. It was an eventful night. We had buffet dinner at the hotel and went back to the room after that. Little Tristan developed a high fever of 40 deg celcius and we rushed him to KKH. We were there from 11+pm till next morning 4+am. We went back to the hotel room and I celebrated dear's birthday with a few slices of cake. :)

November 2009 – Dear had to travel very often as he can't travel after I reached my 37 weeks. I'm in my last lap already. 3rd trimester and getting all the aches here and there and also getting pretty heavy.

December 2009 – I was lucky to have holiday for this month to rest. It was the last few weeks of my pregnancy. Dear was still travelling till my week 37 before he could have a break. Stopped Little Tristan's Shichida class as I cannot accompany him for lesson once bb Ashton is out. I delivered Baby Ashton on 22nd December through induced birth. I was discharged from TMC on 24th Dec – Xmas Eve and was at home doing my confinement on Christmas Day. There was no celebration for me but with dear, Tristan and Baby Ashton with me is already a blessing. :)

Hope that 2010 will be a good year for my family and friends! Cheers!
