Still tired. Last weekend spent searching for baby and post-natal stuffs; and troubleshooting office issues.
My record, lugging 3 lappys to the office. Thank God Muscleman was here, so he took care of the notebooks while I did my best to waddle around. Yes, waddle. I no more walk like a human being. :D
What I discovered during the weekend :
There are a lot of jamus and medicines that can be used after the baby was born. Among the most famous ones are Amway Tropical Herbs, Nona Roguy, Leesa, Ibu Halimah....how to choose? So, I asked around, googling and voila! I chose the one with the most beautiful cover. Hehehe.
I also discovered that my baby can see lights thru my skin. Well, during the 'blackout' sessions last night, I just put the torchlight on my stomach (middle part) and just moved it around. The first rotation did not caused any movements at all, but on the second rotation my baby shifted its small body to look at it. Well, that is my interpretation anyway. :D My mom was laughing her head off watching cucu trying to shift around so that the light is always in the 'empty' zone. (full zone being the location where the baby is located).
The third discovery is that, nearing the full-term, there are a lot of aches and pains all over my body. Lugging more than 7 kgs of laptops would make things MUCH MUCH worse. Now, I got back pains, knee pains, stomach pains in addition of a lot of other pains in sometimes I never even knew existed body parts.
The fourth discovery is that, my tongue is useless. I tried to make coffee, it became too sweet. I tried to make tea, it became tasteless. I tried to cook, it became too salty. What's wrong with my tongue? Okay, it was not that great at tasting anyway, being brought up in a household that consume less salt and sugar, but at least it was consistent. Now, it got haywired and caused havoc to my cooking. :( I blame it on hormon. And the ever hanging threat of needing to take the glucose test.
The final discovery is that, I need a lot of rest. Sigh.....
A full weekend...and I want to curl back to sleep. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz............

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
