A bad year to get pregnant? Maybe not....

I may sound serious amidst being a little jovious while writing this. The plan was to have a baby in October so that Bea3 would not feel so much that she was actually a 'surprise' baby while Bea1 and Bea2 all January babies. Anyway, it was only my naughty plan, nothing to do with hubby;).

On thursday last week, I received a pleasant surprise that my application for a research grant under the RMK9 has been approved. very first big project.

I see more dirty cavings to be done, more crazy stunts with the guys from the Malaysian Nature Society Cave Group, more labworks and oppurtunity to travel...and I won't go over and over about me being crazy with my work here.

And the last few days, I'd been thinking "So, next year may not be a good year to get pregnant...". A rather mixed feeling there.

But manusia mampu merancang, Tuhan yang menentukan.

CNI Tongkat Ali, Kopi Jantan that hubby gulped many cups to keep him awake during late night works really gave 'us' the side effect.

So, besides the positive result from the MOSTI that I got last week, just now in the office toilet, I received another.

Photo a bit blur as I just borrowed colleague's camera, hands trembling, got no time to figure out to get good image but I'm sure you can see it alright.

I'm fully prepared for this as my milk supply dropped drastically last week. Over the phone just now, I said to him "Tahniah, anda bakal menimang cahayamata ke empat". He said "Alhamdulillah"

Hubby says, we will manage and I trust him. We will work things out together, and I will make sure at the end of 2008, when the project comes to an end, a final report will be submitted.

In the meantime, we have yet another reason to be grateful of having another gift from Allah, Alhamdulillah.

I have not changed the blogger name to mama23beas yet, now I have another one coming;). This will be an August baby, I guess. It does not matter anymore, we pray for a healthy baby.

Ok guys, I want to see those congratulatory comments coming. Pile them on!
