I’m Still Here

Ice Cool

I guess I should really update something about what’s up with me. Being gone for too long from this blog makes me lazy, as you can see from my sporadic entries these past few months. Even my feed reader’s topping the charts at 1200 unread posts after 3 weeks of absence, that’s also coz I managed to clear off those paid posts written by those in my feed and leaving behind only those I plan to read… soon… *hehe*

First off, this marks the beginning of my 3rd week at work. I started work the week after the Raya holidays (6th October) and faced a mountain of faulty parts waiting to be sent out. Even now, they’re not all cleared yet, what with new stuff to do everyday while having to deal with the old stuff as well.

About the kids… they’re just doing great… driving their mommy up the wall, that is! Ivan has been a really good boy. Izac is the one driving me up the wall. Jolie… she’s an angel, when she’s not wailing! But really, Jolie is quite a good baby, probably because I co-sleep with her at nights so I hardly ever have to get up from my slumber too. More updates about them coming up one by one :D.

On newborn photography, I have done 2 photoshoots since the last I wrote an entry… one for my friend’s first child Cody and after that for Sasha’s brand new boy Justin. Those will be coming soon too!

Do check back soon (but don’t hold your breath, ya!)…

Flowers from Hubs

I was halfway through some paperwork when one of my colleague dumped a bunch of flowers on my desk. My first thought was… OMG!! I can’t think of anything more embarrassing that receiving flowers at work (unless of course someone barges in during a pumping session like what Vien went through). I know most people would be thrilled to get flowers at work, but not me. I hate the attention, and flowers kinda bring loads of attention. People were passing by my desk asking if it’s my birthday… which is obvious lah, I’m married and I’m 8 months pregnant, what do you think?? *LOL* Anyway, this is the first time I received flowers at work, and I hope it’s the last *keke*… thanks dear, but a nice dinner would be better than wasting money on a bunch of flowers *bleh*.

At Work, Health, Pregnancy

A Little Worried, A Little Pissed

(WARNING: Light ranting ahead…)

Remember I updated on my checkup saying I did a swab test for Group B Streptococcus (GBS)? Well, the nurse just called with the results… it’s positive. I didn’t have this bacteria during my previous two pregnancies, so this is something new to me. Positive result only means that I carry the bacteria, and this bacteria can come and go. It’s actually not harmful to the mother, but a newborn passing through the birth canal could get infected. Therefore, I will need to go to the clinic and get some medicine (antibiotics, I think) so that I can start on it as soon as possible, before I pop.

More updates tomorrow, after I have seen the nurse and asked a couple of questions with regards to this. In the meantime, you can read up the link on GBS if you’re interested.

::::::::::: SUE’S RANT :::::::::::

I have totally no mood to work now and requested my superior to let me off early to go to the Doctor’s so that I can save my leave tomorrow… not only the stupid fella didn’t give me a straight answer, but he pointed to some work that wasn’t mine to begin with and say, “Why is that box still there?”

Oh, and what kind of a superior complains about a pregnant woman taking a full day’s MC everytime she has to go for a checkup? This is the best time to utilise all my MCs *hehehe* and also to have a rest. I seriously wonder what he will say to his wife when it’s her turn to be pregnant… hmph!

End of Working Saturdays

Finally, after nearly six years of working with my current company, we have finally been granted our wish for a five-day-week. Previously, we were working on alternate Saturdays for half a day, which was deemed quite useless by us employees, as it’s such a waste of fuel, electricity and time. The only reason why this company opens on a Saturday is for the customers to bring in faulty units, and therefore only the service centre ever operates to its full use on weekends.

Starting from July 1st 2008, I will have Saturdays and Sundays free, only having to work an additional half an hour on weekdays. Yippee!! All of us couldn’t be happier… working half a day on Saturday makes the weekend pass by so fast!
