My First Born -tag





Here you go moms - a different kind of survey for a change - it's all about your first born! Just copy and paste for yourself!

Let's see how much you remember!

1. WAS YOUR FIRST PREGNANCY PLANNED?
Nope. Just go with the flow.

2. WERE YOU MARRIED AT THE TIME?
Yup. Of course.

3. WHAT WERE YOUR REACTIONS?
Not surprise. :)

4. HOW OLD WERE YOU?
24 years old.

5. HOW DID YOU FIND OUT YOU WERE PREGNANT?
Its not a rocket science. We already 'suspected' that I was pregnant. So we bought a urine pregnancy test, just for confirmation.

6. WHO DID YOU TELL FIRST?
We were in UK at the time. I did not really tell anyone. Mr AB, is so 'busy body', he always know without me telling him. Then there's my MIL. She called, and she just guessed it I think, and started counting the due date. (She was a midwife). And later, I have to come back to Malaysia for my convocation, but I was unable due to my morning sickness which was at its worse that time. So, I called my parents to tell them I was not well. They kinda guessed it too.
In short, I did not tell anyone.

7. DID YOU WANT TO FIND OUT THE SEX?
Well yes. With all the technologies around, why we should wait. Plus everything on sale are colour coordinated according to gender, I don't want to end up buying only white clothes for the baby.

8. DUE DATE?
7 March 2002

9. WHEN WAS YOUR CHILD ACTUALLY BORN?
13 March 2002

10. HOW MUCH DID YOUR CHILD WEIGH?
3.5kg ( and you know what, he is by far, the 'lightest' among my 3 kids!)

11. DID YOU HAVE MORNING SICKNESS?
yes. terribly. Not much vomitting though. But always noxious. Can't smell lots of stuff.
We planned a lot of things and have lots of places to go while in UK, but all have to be put off.

12. WHAT DID YOU CRAVE?
Cadbury Flake. Thank God, opposite our place there's this groceries store, so, not a problem if I had the craving in the middle of the night.

13. WHO/WHAT IRRITATED YOU THE MOST?
Mr AB exhaling near my face., intentionally or unintentionally.

14. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CHILD'S SEX?
boy.

15. DID YOU WISH YOU HAD THE OPPOSITE SEX OF WHAT YOU WERE GETTING?
no.

16. HOW MANY POUNDS DID YOU GAIN THROUGHOUT THE PREGNANCY?

3 hours

22. WHO DROVE YOU TO THE HOSPITAL?
The 1 who made me pregnant in the first place.

Same as question 22.

Women remember this stuff!

I tell my wife "Betty had a baby. A girl." That's all the information I needed to know but she wants to know the length of the labour, the weight and length of the baby, the colour of the walls in the delivery room, the name of the midwife's cat,....there is no end to it!

drNO said...

Lee- hahahhhahah...
that is exactly what always happen to me and hubby. Y can't u guys get more info.

HLiza said...

Lee..ha ha ha..

I'm a bit frustrated that a lot of things slipped away from my memory by this time. I don't remember the exact birth weight..and don't ask about the milestones too. But I still remember how she looks the first time I set my eyes on her. I'm a big fan of epidural..I don't think I can end up having 3 kids if I have to go without it. My pain treshold is sooo low..

Saya said...

hehe..kejap je masa ni..dah besar dah umar..

sakit tak bersalin?takut nak tanya mak..sbb dia ckp "mcm niasa jer"

kak ain pon cakap mula2 jer sakit..tapi lps tgk adam..rase mcm biasa jer..

Neeza Shahril said...

bila the kids besar, rasa tak ingat dah all the pain dulu2 tu..

tulipurple said...

Mummy ranger said...

noniey alias said...

Flea said...

Thx for popping over to my blog the other day and leaving a comment.
I'll be back .. as Arnie said. :-)

drNO said...

HLiza- that is exactly why i did this tag. Just to refresh my memory since I did not jot anything down about the experience at that moment (eventhough I planned to).


saya- huahahhahah, sape ckp mcm biasa?? mana ada sakit bsalin mcm biasa. Ia amatlah luar biasa. masa tgk baby ingat lg sakit. bila baby dh nk masuk 4-5 bln baru lupa sikit2. huhuhuuhuh...

drNO said...

Neeza- lamanya ur labour pain. masa bsalin umar, I was expecting to hv labour pain at least 10-12hours (bcoz it's my first born). Alhamdulillah not that long. tp..still a nightmare. bila baby masuk 4-5 bln, diorg senyum so sweet n start babbling and giving u sloppy kisses, time tu dh start lupa sakit tu sikit2.

drNO said...

tulipurple- a'ah. utk refresh the memory. u buat la nanti.



mummy ranger- lama tu. each deliveries have its unique experience. tp so far, mine, all three lebih kurang je.


noniey- ye ke turun 10kg je. tu nmpk kurus je. kalau turuun 20 kg, xpe apa yg tgl nanti. hehheheh..
mmg tgk umar skang. rasa dh tua la pulak...huuhuhuhu.

drNO said...

Flea- no prob. :-)

Zek Zek said...

Eh 3hrs je in labour? How lucky!. Selalunya yang first sure makan belas belas jam. Mine was 15hrs!!

drNO said...

zek zek- itu la, masa start sakit tu, dh start counting hours, sbb theoretically it should at least be 10hours, masa blaja n keje dulu pun, mmg around that. tp, bila obgyn dtg, dia kata lagi 2jam kluar. I thought she was joking.
