I had a good trip. I tried not to think about what I would've done pre-Bassou: fortified myself with diet Coke to see something of Hong Kong, and stayed an extra day to see historic Penang. But I didn't, and that's OK. I'm glad I had the layovers in Hong Kong there and back. I slept a lot there and in Penang. There are some tentative murmurs about upcoming trips to Haiti and DR Congo, so we'll see.
I also had my second ob/gyn appointment, and I didn't have to get undressed! Just chatting, though I did bare my tummy to listen to Bassou's reassuringly strong heartbeat. Kind of like a miniature whoosh-whoosh echo of my own. My doctor is due in November and said she'd be back in January and available to deliver Bassou. Wow for her.
I suspect that my nausea-free 15 weeks portends something worse for me later on. :/
