"Men are what their mothers made them" --Ralph Waldo Emerson
All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.
Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own.
The loveliest materpiece of the heart of God is the love of a Mother.

Just few weeks ago, we were having our moment of joy of having our 2nd pregnancy. We were so happy, excited and scared a little bit. The question is always there for the next child: Are we ready?

It was already 8 weeks when we found out that I was pregnant again with our 2nd child. Amazingly unnoticable, no morning sickness, no nausea, no headache, just a bit more sleepy (in which I kept blaming it on the nice weather and boring office projects). We know that we've been trying to get Max a little brother/sister since early this year, but yet we were taking it easy. So when we finally got it, it's still leave us a shocking feeling about are we ready for this? Or is Max ready for this? But in the end, the baby is coming, and we definitely want to be ready for everything coming along way.

It's already 16 weeks today. With still no morning sickness, nausea, or headache. Well perhaps just lightly but really still can easily cope with compare to last time when I was carrying Max. 
Due date for 2nd of June, I gotta a feeling it's gonna be late just like Max :p

I haven't done any preparation for the baby other than my diets and also I quit from my office works. I think this two things is the most important things to adjust knowing that I'm not as young as my first pregnancy. Other than that just starting to prepare Max for becoming a big  brother, this is rather difficult sometimes, but we're trying our best. No baby shopping yet at this point as we're still not too sure the gender of the baby, plus I also don't feel that excited to shop too. Which is another feeling unlike my first pregnancy.

Financially, we're not so worry about it. We believe that every person has their own path of living. Mightly Allah will always take care of us as long as we're trying and believing.
Daddy has been working on his own and been doing very well. While I need to adjust with my work from home again. I may have few plans aside from doing design works, but we'll see about that.
There's nothing can stop us from embracing this 2nd baby :)

So are we ready? Yes, we are ready and excited!
