salaam mummies, it's been sometime since i posted! Hope everyone and their buns are doing well!
I'm now into week 31, 9 more weeks to go ladies!!! mcm tak sabar also have, but keep reminding myself to go with the flow of daily life and not think too much about what will happen hehehe...
partially prepared my hospital bag, i'm normally a last min person but this time i surprised myself with anxiety i guess! lol
i heard there's a baby fair at expo this weekend and next weekend as well, anyone going? i need a playpen and a bathtub, thats all. planning to shop later on after birth when baby is 1-2 mths.... right now just buy basics. Any suggestions for a durable and afordable playpen?
anyway, kalau you nak carik playpen, try kiddy palace. i've seen affordable ones with nice designs. for myself i'm going to buy a cot instead of playpen cos i want something that can be used longer, cos cots kan boleh convert to toddler bed next time.
wondershine, i'm not really fully prepared cuz apparently i totally missed out baby toiletries until you mentioned hahah. Also waiting for another month before washing baby clothes and stuff.... right now like too early. Just being kiasu i guess, cuz my hubby is the type who dont bother about these details so i have to look into it while i'm still okay!
thanks for the info, will check out kiddypalace! my first son i had a cot which he keeps bumping his head into and getting his legs stuck even with the protector lolz... so now I'm going for playpen. lets see how different it will be!
Hi Wondershine and mosqeetoh,
im too excited wen i read your reply.. heheh.. im in 30 weeks also.. and ive written everything that i want.. cuma.. half of it i have not't discuss it with hubby.. you've reminded me to wash all my 1st baby clothes.. hahah... pening sekali coz im getting pretty tired everyday now.. i'll be going for the baby expo on the 26th this month. me too getting a cot for my newborn coz da first one sleeps with me and sometimes on the daybed.. now dah ada abang.. takut he will poke baby eyes or cannot control his geram.. so decidid on a cot .. senang for my mother in law to handle baby also... im still trying to figure out what to buy 1st...
hospital bag have not prepared.. i will do it next month.. and ive already prepare a list for hubby to do once im in the labor what.. so dier tak kelam kabut.. hehehe.. ive decided to c-sect and already told the gynae when i'll be doing it... they said need to do it at least 1 week before due date.. i'll due on the 25th april.. hubby like it wen ive prepared everything for him to do so he won't be panic... hubby has 2 daughters from his previous marriage.. all dah besar sec 2 and 3.. and staying with us.. they too are very2 excited for their lil bro to arrive.. can't wait for him to arrive to add in to our big family... hehehe..
Hi wondershine, mosqeetoh & bayu! So exciting to think we're already in the last stretch; I'm in week 35, and even then my hospital bag's not fully packed yet. In fact I still have not't finished washing the baby clothes (hopefully one last batch left), and have not't purchased things like diapers, baby cot bedding, sling and bottle steriliser.
Mosqeetoh: I'm using a playpen also; my bro bought for me from Kiddy Palace. The brand is Latido, and I think it's not so expensive. Try looking at the larger outlets for more choices. I'll also be going for the baby fair on 26th to get steriliser and any lastmin stuff I might've forgotten.
Bayu: You sound very prepared! I'm still not prepared mentally, and given the weight of my baby (2.9kg at 35wks), gynae said we might not even wait till 40wks, so it's coming pretty soon, and im still asking the doc what contractions feel like, how will i know when to leave for the hospital, or if it's just latent labour, and what if i cnt get the baby to latch properly. Urgh! And worse is when i ask ppl, they'll just say 'oh you'll know when it happens... or, dont't worry, your maternal instincts will just kick in..." Okay I sound like I'm freaking out already. Haha, sorry for the rant!
Bayu and wondershine, looks like all three of us delivering arnd the same time at the same hospital! Kandang Kerbau Hospital rite?
my due date 17th april.
inshaAllah, may everything go smoothly for everyone and yeah all the excited siblings and family members will share our joys soon! ameeeeeeen
themissus, 5 more weeks to go!! feeling anxious for you hehehe and no worries its ok to freak out and to rant. we preggy ladies are excused :P :P
from my first child experience, i find that it's good to read up on stuff like breastfeeding and labour cuz these information can be helpful when the time comes. at least we wont feel so blur!
my first child i immediately informed the nurse when my mucus plug came off (discharge with blood) in the end had to wait and wait for 16 hours till i gave birth! i think it's better to wait it out till water bag burst unless your worried about baby, then no choice must spend longer time in labour ward .
any idea which are the larger kiddy palace outlets? nearest one for me is compasspoint.
themissus, this week there's 1 baby fair at spore expo also.. but not sure if the fair is worth to shop for... ppl say its better to walk more for easy labor.. heheheh.. but not for me for my first one.. i think im too panicky da last time.. too excited.. hahha.. ok i admit.. im the kanchiong woman in the family..hahahhaa... and tats y i need to prepare.. so i can be in relax mode later...
wondershine and mosqeetoh, we same2.. can't wait..insha Allah, everything will be alrite till da baby arrives.. im going to deliver at Kandang Kerbau Hospital also.. hehehe.. and after this we will be very very busy... yup.. very true.. for first time mummies, they need to read up so they can at least be prepared.
hi mosqeetoh, bayu and themissus, yup there's two baby fairs coming up (one this weekend and another next weekend) for us to do some last-minute shopping.
mosqeetoh: i'm not sure which kiddy palace outlets are bigger. i've seen catalogues of baby furniture at kiddy palace in parkway though. maybe you can try asking the compasspoint outlet if they have a catalogue to show you?
bayu: yes, i'm delivering at Kandang Kerbau Hospital too, cuma belum book my bed. have you booked and paid the deposit for yours? any reason why you're opting for c-sect? i have not spoken to my gynae about my delivery plans. a bit worried now. the only thing my gynae mentioned was that i might deliver earlier than my EDD given my job. heheheh.
themissus: my baby was 1.5kg at 28 weeks and im anxious to know his weight now! will be seeing my gynae in two weeks so i'll update again.
insya-Allah everything will go well for us. hang in there everyone!
assalamualaikum to all...
have a great friday & may all of us be blessed with our lil ones..
im off for my 2nd appt & i hope to hear my precious lil heartbeat today...
laydeesnap - insya-Allah. banyak berdoa ok! *hugs*
Dear mummies, sry for the off topic...(=
im joining this Dumex Mamil Gold Photo contest, pls help me to like the photos on this link...join in the contest if any mummies here are interested too...thank you very much!!! =)
i ended up going to the babyfair on friday cuz I went to JL mega sale! like everyone said there was nothing much, most of the stalls selling the same stuff like mittens, washtowels, bibs etc and a couple of stalls selling cribs/pens, beddings, maternity bras, toiletries, toys etc.
Needed tommytippie milk bottles but cudnt see any, only avent ones.
Bought 3 sets of mittens ($1 each pair), caps (2 for $5) and overalls ($5 each) for my baby though, quite cheap i guess.
Very tiring to walk!! Feeling absolutely like a heavy sack of potatoes nowadays. No wonder a lot of mummies start their shopping really early. Next weekend I hope to be done with baby toiletries, bottles and playpen inshaAllah! No more long shopping hours for me!
Good morning ladies,
So excited for mummies who is in their final trimester, I was reading thru the post most of you have shop for yr babies what about yrself???? Its important too right. those breastfeeding bra, tummy binder, maternity pad, etc.... just reminding the mummies waiting for the BIG DAY. good luck and byk berdoa for a smooth delivery.
about the first time mummy preparation for delivery, dont rush & panic to hospital at the slightest pain you will end up on the hospital bed for hours of labour. And I heard that the dilate of cervix from 1 - 5 cm will take very long.
Allah noes best...i suffered a 'missed miscarriage'
its was devastating..bt i know He plans better tings for us..
thank you all for the nice concern & advices..
i shall visit again if im pregnant soon..hehe...
take care all & may all of us be blessed with great health & smooth pregnancy & deliveries..
