'The Last Weekend Before Ramadhan' - the unfinished business

I'm in a mixed feeling right now. Actually feeling unconvinced either I can make it or not for this year fasting month. Being pregnant and fasting is surely going to be a challenge.

However, it is undeniable the fun being in fasting month is like a blessing. Just imagine the varieties in food during the pasar ramadhan. The 'rushing-moment' of getting home on time for the break-fast. The reciting prayers before the break-fast. The break-fast dinner gathering with our family members. And also the solat tarawikh later after solat Isya'. It's simply amazing. The only once in a year happening event for hamba-hamba Allah. I am, on Monday. Last weekend was the last before Ramadhan comes. As usual weekend will passes just like a morning breeze.

On last Saturday, we have decided to just stayed resting at home. However, ibu will call me up for lunch together at her place as always. Without having much choice this time, we have to drop by plus I was told my sister Abby is admitted due to her tonsil problem. And have to go through a surgery to remove her tonsil tomorrow.

-oOoppsSs! GTG...maybe will be continued

Isn't she awesome.

Dunno y, my instinct keep telling me something wierd these days. (''..)

2 More to Go

13 weeks and 2 days
(based on my menstrual cycle calculation)

12 weeks and 6 days
(based on doctor's prediction)

Week 13: Urine forms

Thirteen weeks into your pregnancy, or 11 weeks after conception, your baby's intestines have moved from the umbilical cord to your baby's abdomen. Your baby is also beginning to form urine and discharge it into the amniotic fluid.

Tissue that will become bone is also developing around your baby's head and within his or her arms and legs. Tiny ribs may soon appear.

Week 14: Baby's sex becomes apparent

Fourteen weeks into your pregnancy, or 12 weeks after conception, your baby's arms have almost reached the length they'll be at birth and your baby's neck has become more defined. Red blood cells are forming in your baby's spleen.

Your baby's sex will become apparent this week or in the coming weeks.

By now your baby may be almost 3 1/2 inches (87 millimeters) long from crown to rump and weigh about 1 1/2 ounces (45 grams).

Week 15: Baby's skeleton develops bones

Fifteen weeks into your pregnancy, or 13 weeks after conception, your baby is growing rapidly. Your baby's skeleton is developing bones, which will become visible on ultrasound images in a few weeks. Your baby's scalp hair pattern also is forming.

Week 16: Facial expressions are possible

Sixteen weeks into your pregnancy, or 14 weeks after conception, your baby's eyes have begun to face forward and slowly move. The ears are close to reaching their final position. More-developed facial muscles may lead to various expressions, such as squinting and frowning. Your baby also can now make sucking motions with his or her mouth.

Although still too slight to be felt, your baby's movements are becoming coordinated and can be seen during ultrasound exams.

By now your baby may be more than 4 1/2 inches (120 millimeters) long from crown to rump and weigh nearly 4 ounces (110 grams).
