Baby is 25 weeks and baby is a…. Girl 🙂 But Dr Suzanna said to double confirm, we’ll do another scan in 3 weeks’ time just in case something appears in between baby’s legs, heh. Whatever it is, Alhamdulillah baby is well and doing fine.
You’ll find me blogging more often now that the June holidays have started.
And you’ll find me blogging more and more about my baby since I am turning into a mak-mak by the seconds. I asked my mum if she was like me when she was pregnant with me 27 years ago.
“Tak sekecoh kau,” she said.
Everyday I’ll bug her with photos of baby items and being the mum she is, she’ll entertain me until yesterday she replied, “Buy the important ones first.” I think she cannot tahan already hahahaha. Already she has my 4 younger sisters to attend to and then kena layan si mak buyung ni lagi.
Anyway, remember how I was blogging about owning the Tula in Plum Posy print here? Rina suggested that I join the SG Babywearing Swap group on FB which was such a good idea! I chanced upon two ladies who were selling their lightly-used Posy Print for $270 but after much consideration, I’d figure with that amount of money, I could have bagged a brand new Tula! And then jeng jeng jeng, I saw another lady selling her brand new Tula for $289:
I then forgot about the Posy Plum print and decided to go with this one which I think is more appropriate if I have a son in a few years time (plan already, bagus). Besides, you can never go wrong with rainbow colours :p
Immediately pm-ed the lady who was selling it and enquired if the price was negotiable (tiba-tiba mama on a budget) and got this for $275 and collecting on Friday! So exciting! I probably have to shave off $100 if my husband or my parents ever asks about the cost but itu semua belakang kira.
That same night, I went on a shopping spree on… Qoo10 and Carousell. I’ll be honest, those websites are superb. They are lifesavers. What I bought in less than 2 hours:
1) Spectra 9+ Electric Double Breast Pump
On Qoo10, its original price was $159.90 but yesterday it was selling for $128! Immediately clicked to purchase without hesitation because I was already eyeing this for quite some time. I’m just hoping that the Baby Fair in July wont be selling this for $80 or something because I’ll just cry over there.
2) Hi-Bee Breastmilk Storage Bags 120pcs
3) Mybee Breastpads 200pcs
To close the loop (hahaha loop habis), I went ahead to purchase these breastpads for $28.50, $0.14 cents per piece. Kononnya I’ve settled the breastfeeding main items la. Already have breast pump, breastpads and breastmilk storage bags mah? Then it dawned upon me that I’d have to buy nipple cream soon.
4) Kate Spade Diaper Bag
For $50, okay la since it includes the diaper change mat sekali. My sister asked why it must be KS (probably thinking why suddenly so brand-conscious this mak buyung) to which I quickly quipped that I had sold ALL my Kate Spade bags before the wedding to so-called add to my wedding fund so to have this as my diaper bag to be used in a long run is nothing. Pandai eh menjawab.
Then that very night after ‘shopping’ at Qoo10 and Carousell, I saw this on FB:
Am planning to get bulky items such as stroller, bathtubs, etc and as my mum puts it, “Dont forget baby clothes as well.”
But already I want baby clothes like these:
Kesian baby. Belum apa-apa dah kena jadi watermelon all.
