Missing in action..

I've been MIA for a little while, as I just cannot stand being in front of the computer for too long.. So I have not been blogging or visiting all the blogs that I miss so much.. sigh..

Last week I was actually feeling a little better, then we had to make an emergency trip out to KL, as hubby had a meeting. I came back with a head cold, luckily it only took me 3 days to get over it, unlike the previous cold that I had a month back that took me 1 1/2 weeks to get over. BUT.. morning sickness is BACK too!!! Blah~~~~

To all the blogs that I miss, I'm coming... wait for me!!!!

Importance of Magnesium.

A lot of ppl don't know that magnesium is actually a really important nutrient that our body needs a lot of. Magnesium is needed for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body.

A lack of magnesium has actually been related with serious migraines, osteoporosis, arthritis, diabetes, constipation and a lot more!

While it is commonly understood that the body needs calcium to build bones, but bones are a complex matrix of many different minerals and if all the required minerals are not present then strong bones cannot be built. As farm soil contains less and less of the required nutrient, dairy products now may contain calcium, but so little magnesium or other nutrients, this is one of the reason why osteoporosis is more evident in cow's milk drinking countries. 2ndly, dairy protein is very acidic and it necessitates the body to continually pulling more calcium from the bones to buffer this acidity, causing the bone to have even less nutrients to re-built or built new.

Magnesium is a precursor to an important substance in the body called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is necessary for connective tissue formation and helps maintain healthy joints, prevent skin wrinkles, prevent hernias and promote the healing of wounds and surgical incisions.

I've found this site that has liquid magnesium supplement, simply becoz liquid is simple to take and it is absorbed more quickly. :)

It's either I'm getting older and my body doesn't handle it well anymore, or this baby needs a lot of hormones to grow... I don't remember morning sickness to be this bad with the other 2 kids!!

I'm feeling so blah and yucky. Another 5 or more weeks of this?? Blah~~ Need a supply of Nux Vomica. Does anyone know where I can get some in Malaysia? :) If I were to order online, by the time it arrives, my morning sickness would probably be over.

How am I going to survive the next 5 or more weeks!!! Can't even stand to sit in front of the computer for more than 1/2 hours, sigh, haven't been able to visit all my fellow bloggers websites either... WHAT's happening to me!!!!

Well.. it's been 2 weeks since my last visit to the doctors! I'm dragging my heels a little... Takut la! (Scared la) I know, I know, should just go and get it over and done with. I've been throwing up, left, right and center. That's a good sign right?? Enough hormones to go and make the baby grow! update: Just got back from the Dr's and we saw something twinkling!!! YAY!!! :)

Anyway.. On a lighter note, BamBam went for a casting for a Dumex ad on Thursday, it was a fun experience I can tell you that. I had to get him to pretend to sneeze, do a muscle man pose and sit on a beautiful lady's lap. You know think that the last one would be easy.. but NO~~ hehehe nothing is easy with kids! It took 2 1/2 hours of warming up for BamBam to do all 3!

There were lots of other kids there, all of them at about 2 years of age, so Caleb was a little older than the rest. I can just imagine what the other parents had to go through, but then it could be easier when they are younger as they are not as self-conscious.

But BamBam was one of the 1st to arrive on the scene and last to leave, and when he did all 3, especially the sneezing part, everyone on the set was cheering, even the Camera man (probably the director as well) was so happy that he came and wanted to give Caleb a big hand-shake to thank him. BamBam being BamBam, he was so self-conscious, that he had his hands on his waist and told everyone what he thought. "NO MORE AH-Choo! No More Ah-Choo!"

Update : Unfortunely, BamBam didn't get the part, as he was the oldest of them all, think about 1/2 year older than all the kids there. So he would have looked out of place. But overall it was a great experience. Hope to have more in the future and make us some money!!! hehehe :)
