Most Common Question

Do you know what’s the most common question I get asked?

I guess it’s actually quite a harmless question, and a natural topic of conversation.

The most common question I get asked is, “how many kids do you plan to have?”

This is usually followed up with, “when is your third one?”

Well, my dear readers, sorry to say nobody will get a chance to ask me that question any more.

That was the first test (two lines mean pregnant). Following photo was the second test taken a few days later.

Now the most common question will be, “why so fast?”.

We just came back from appointment at the ob/gyn and he confirmed Poey Chin’s pregnancy.

Baby is 6 weeks old, and technology is so amazing as we already could hear baby’s heartbeat.

It will be a few more weeks before baby 3.0 is stable so we aren’t celebrating just yet.

Poey Chin is quite weak because she was vomiting quite badly earlier this week (probably got the bug from Rachel).

We feel happy and excited of course, but understandably we are worried too. Poey Chin’s body and our finances haven’t fully recovered from baby Daryl’s birth 7 months ago. I will write a more detailed post on my feelings soon.

There’s also a little bit of guilt. It seems we haven’t spent as much time with baby Daryl, and Rachel is going to get even less attention.

Doctor says it should be fine having another baby so soon, but we need to be watchful toward the end of the pregnancy.

Baby 3.0 will be born in August 2011.

For reference (or for laughs), you may want to read about ourΒ first andΒ second pregnancy discoveries.

Finally I want to wish all of you a Great New Year and a wonderful time with your loved ones. Eat healthily, drink responsibly, drive carefully and stay ‘safe’.

  8. Congrats to u and ur wife!
    Just a word from the medical point of view, it’s best to have proper spacing (minimum of 2 years) in between child births to ensure the mother has totally recovered and prepare her body for the next pregnancy. Well, just saying anyway. Still a good news to be joyful about =)

    Adino: Thanks Siew Lee

  9. Congrats to your family !! Will be praying for Mummy Poey Chin , Rachael and Daryl and even you. May God’s blessings and abundance be upon your family.
    Take care =)

    Adino: Thanks Sarah!
