I just got back from the gynae and we found out the sex of the baby today!! I want to blog so I remember the day we found out if you had the bird or the bees, baby no 3 🙂

I’ve just passed the 4 month mark and everything is healthy and on track, Alhamdulillah. Been having a lot of work lately with the most stressful time of the year for us – Raya period, travel every week and my energy is drained out, so I was anxious for this checkup. Phewww baby is A-ok and that’s the most important thing. We saw the baby moving around in the scan and I wish we brought Daniel and Mariam along so they could see too. Now Fadza and I are thinking how best to tell them the sex of the baby haha.

no thank you

I still don’t know the sex of Baby No. 3 yet.

My nausea is pretty bad, I’m losing weight that even my collarbones are jutting out, my complexion is so bad now, and my tummy is quite big – so aunties who see me immediately go “Oh, you’re definitely having a girl.” Haha, we shall see! Another Daddy’s girl…. great!

To be honest, since I have a pair already I really don’t have a preference – whatever God wants to gift us! But I do think this new baby will determine the dynamics of my little family moving forward. If we have 2 boys in the family, it’ll be trips to the dinosaur land and scooter parks moving forward, sigh. If we have 2 girls in the family, Mariam will have competition and I worry that she might not like the new baby – although, it could make her more girly and less “I want to wear baju melayu for raya like Daniel and my cousins”…. Either way, it will have an impact on Daniel and Mariam, and I’m nervous to find out to be honest!

i’m pregnant!

Guysssss, remember me? My name is Vivy…. Haha. I’ve been so out of it with blogging but for good reason. Most of you might now via Instagram but it doesn’t feel like I’ve announced it properly until it’s on Proudduck.


Wow feels so surreal to tick “Being Pregnant” category for this blog post.

Baby No 3 wants to say Hi!

Alhamdulillah 🙂

Unlike the other two (what were their names again), this one is planned and we’ve been trying for a few months until we realised we counted the days wrongly bahahhahaha. #canruncompanybutcannotcountovulationdate

daniel’s first sleepover

It was 11pm.

“What’s wrong?” Fadza asked me, concerned.

I was sitting on the couch, hugging a pillow so tight listening to sad songs. “You know what’s wrong….”

Let’s rewind 3 hours earlier.

We were at my inlaws place because my youngest bil is back from the UK for holiday, and we all greeted him with open arms. The kids were so excited especially and they gathered around his suitcase to see if he got them any chocolates/toys/cookies/toys/lollipops/toys from there. It was happy all round, everyone had huge smiles on their faces because the whole family is complete now – everyone is together having dinner.

I’m in London now. It’s the first time I’m back without Fadza so I’m missing him super duper much. Passing by familiar places and I’m reminded of him, so I get my emotions spurts thinking about how much I miss my husband. I mean, my whole London life is basically me and him so it’s not the same #imsolameiknow I haven’t even gone to Harrods or Selfridges, that’s crazyyyyy and that’s how meh I feel! Haha. Thank God I have my parents here (who coincidentally came to London on these dates too… why do I get the feeling they’re following me -___-“) so at least I’m not completely lonely haha.
