the melodramatic mouse is now mellomom
The cat is finally out of the bag. After weeks of deliberations and even submitting a birth plan so he wouldn’t suspect, today we finally decided to inform Dr Tan about our plans. But it seems that our secret wasn’t much of a secret because he expected it *cis* Anyhow I am thankful that he is supportive. It’s a big yay to homebirthers!
Today’s ultrasound measured LBT with an estimated weight of 3.05kg at 37 weeks and 4 days. If we calculate based on my last menstrual period, it would still be at 36 weeks and 5 days. Once again this shows that the EDD is just an Estimated due date, and only our baby knows the REAL due date. So don’t let anyone bulldoze you into thinking that we are overdue then corner you into an induction or cesarean. Same goes for the baby’s weight as well.
LBT is being a super good girl by remaining head down, switching from left to right and left again. All that’s left to do now is — in Dr Tan’s exact words in Cantonese — Wait to Birth. That is my sentiment exactly. As much as I want to hurry, it’s really a love hate situation where I want to enjoy her in me longer versus I can’t wait for her to be out of me *LOL*

I’m looking forward to an Easter water dragon in our very own inflated pool. We did a trial run last Saturday and everything is all set! Hopefully she hears Mommy’s birthday wish and grant it true ♥
