Prep Prep Prep

Post sebelum ini adalah post reminder secara halus :P


I miss calculated my week of pregnancy. I thought I am still at 6 month and today I just realize I am at week 28, which means I'm already in my third trimester. Oh my!

Baby checklist dah ade okay ;)

Well, as a start, I am looking for the baby cupboard/drawers to store all the cloths and baby items. I prefer things to be organize before start anything. At least I know where to stuff all those baby things, instead of leave it in the box or paper bag like the one that we hae bought from baby fair last time. (This reminds me of the conversation with Along when she asked what are the things that I really want for my baby. During her time, she went crazy over baby/mommy accessories like baby sling/carrier. Now I realize mine is the cupboard which I dreamt of full white wooden cupboard/drawers with crystal-like round knobs)

Next, probably be the laundry time for some of baby cloths that we already bought. Meanwhile we should start looking at the checklist - baby gear, diapering, baby grooming, nursering etc. well, We actually did some shortlist item for baby car seat and stroller. Had consult with Along on this and luckily we did go and look for ourselves, instead of just depending on what we saw and read from internet.

We went to babystore last sunday to check out the items and spend more than hour just testing on the car seat and stroller but it is worth the hassle. Else we might end up choosing the uncomfortable stroller/carseat.

At first we were thinking of getting Combi Urban for stroller and Halford Zeus fot the carseat. I prefer Combi cause I love the stroller facing me and it is such convenience to have reversible handle. It is so cute (semua pun cute) but the baby seat seems small and a bit narrow for us. Plus it doesn't moves as smooth as other stroller that we tested. So instead, we end up choosing Maclaren Techno/Sports. So many plus point compared to Combi.

Next, we look for carseat which we choose Halford Zeus but the salesgirl told us that it doesn't fit for Proton or Perodua and they have tested it. Hubs have doubts but we hold our thought first and probably dig some info later on. Second choice probably the same brand but different series (Halford Neo), or probably we just go for other choices like Recaro (ni idaman Hubs) or Maxi Cosi or something else.

Nak beli barang mahal memang pikir lame kan. Nak2 when we are thinking of using it for years or probably it's just something that can wait. But we definitely need these two, unlike baby cot or sterilizer.

Ini tak masuk kisah breast pump lagi. Haa.. tapi tu dah decide we will go for Medela freestyle. We will buy online cause it is wayyyy cheaper but will buy it around next month - closer to delivery date. Saving for the warranty. Hehe.

Preparation for the newborn

Tak sampai tiga bulan je lagi.. Cepat betul masa berlalu. Bulan lepas rasa macam lama nak tunggu next check up. This time around, it feels like really fast. Sedar tak sedar dah nak next checkup another week.

Let's take a look on what we've done.

Erm. Baru beli pampers je. Oh and bed set hasil ihsan parents tersayang. Yang lain macam mana?

Alahai hidup. Macam mana nak ada anak nanti ni.

Mom & Baby Expo 2012

There's parenting expo in Midvalley and we make time for it to shop or at least start preparing baby stuff. Hubs already reminds me about making the checklist but I just simply take it easy by taking a pamphlet that have some baby checklist from Modernmum :P

..and it wasn't smart at all. I don't even bring the pamphlet to the expo. So what I do just wandering around looking here and there, starts figuring 'ha..ni. eh ni pon kne beli jugak'

Tak memasal dapat lecture free from Hubs =_=

I found the expo really an eye opener for myself on the baby stuff and aware of the prices. Should have done it earlier before coming. Tak memasal balik rumah kene did some research and come back tomorrow.

The first to do is registering myself at information counter (which at first I am not sure why) to redeem some goodies - at different counter. I keep on searching the booth to redeem the goodies but failed. Have to ask few people before saw the huge sign 'Today Publishing'. How the heck am I suppose to know that you can redeem the goodies there?? People keep on saying 'at the back. at the back' Grr.. Hangin. Should have put sign 'FREE GOODIES HERE!!'

Luckily, the goodies quite interesting.


Panty liner

3 sample diapers and storage bag

Modernmum voucher and Cocoa butter oil sample

Let see..sanitizer, baby powder, syampoo

If you are preggers, you could redeem yourself S-26 Mama milk powder (after filling some survey and your details). I notice that the trick in this expo is to answer some survey, give your details (name, IC, phone no) and they give you some sample. If's not a survey, it will be a page 'Like' at Facebook as what Pureen did. 

They'll provide a tablet, you login in to your account and 'Like' Pureen - which I didn't manage to do it cause forgot my FB password but the lady was so nice still giving me the sample, probably because I already wait for so long for my turn (my phone battery was flat, else could skip the waiting). So went home and 'Like' Pureen cause I really do (I'm an avid user. Bought baby wipes and it's baby powder for my own usage)

Susu yang tidak ketahuan bile nak minum and some baby care

Actually, I am eyeing breast pump for this expo. Specifically Medela Freestyle. I notice there's two booth selling Medela Freestyle which I saw one selling RM19++ and another one RM18++ but with different extra gift. For price RM19++, the extra gift they give is digital thermometer (which I surveyed cost around RM100), cash voucher RM200. But I am thinking getting the RM18++ cause it give the same thermometer and extra one thing which I dont remember. I don't think I need the voucher anyway. There's Medela Freestyle sold online that cost RM1350 with other small gift but without thermometer. Sounds better bought it online kan? But have to consider the warranty cause Hubs said it is US warranty.

Anyway, at the end we manage to buy ourselves MamyPoko diapers worth RM28 for new born - as per advised from Along. She said it was the best buy for any Baby Fair and we could save about RM6 compared to normal price. Took some baby wipes as well (RM10 for 2 pack of 80pieces) Quite a bargain ;)


Katernyer untuk pakai malam. 19 keping aje. Brape lame la tahan.

Gonna think it through again tonight and go back again tomorrow, early in the morning. Hubs and I were going through the baby checklist again and start writing what is necessary for our newborn. Thankfully we have some necessary advisor for these baby stuff. Hehe.

Tomorrow is going to be fun!!

Mekar picnic

Had our small picnic with our coursemates last few weeks at Taman Botani Putrajaya.

Hubs always be the Ketua Kelas who plan all these sort of thing. Me on the other hand gila kuasa assigning task to Mekarians :P

abaikan vote lake garden. overruled by majority sebab susah parking

..and to my surprise everyone take action on it. Haha.

It was sunny day and we did nothing except catching up. Oh...it feels like the old days, except with additional members to the family (spouses and babies)

Bapak budak. Bakal suami orang dukung anak orang. Bapak budak. Anak bapak.

I dont remember what's so funny :P

Ade surprise birthday juga :)

The last time we've done this sort of gathering was during SS open house last year. Hmm..lame dah tu - if Mekar kenduri doesn't count lah kan. It's not easy to get together as everyone have their own commitment these days but we tried our very best to hook up at times majority could attend (thanks to all the social network in the world!) 

We are small family during our Uni time as we only have less than 20 people all together. Thus making this event somehow successful everytime we had. 

So here's a toast for more get-together in the future!!

ps: In case you are wondering, Mekar is our course channel name on MIRC at uni days. Long story :P

Daddy feels the kick

We were watching Petaling Street Warrior last night and lean down on our bed. As usual, I normally put on my hands on my belly and Hubs join in as well. Baby wasn't responding for a while until Hubs gave up resting his hands over me :P

Suddenly, the baby starts to move and I could feel it became more obvious. I took Hubs hands and let it be on the part where the baby kicks. Hubs suddenly looking at me and asking 'Did you just purposely did that?'

Pretend not knowing, I said 'No'

We continue watching but his hand lay still.

The baby kicks again.


I laughed :D

'Die kick ke? Wahh... betul ke ni?'

I let him enjoy the moment and he keeps on 'Wahh...Wooo...aktifnyer'

He starts explaining the kick he felt and excited about it until he spoils the moment when he started to feel frighten weird as it becomes more frequent.

'Macam dalam movie monster ade mende gerak2 dalam perut nak beranak. Ee..scary lah'

He then take off his hand and ran away.


True story.

Going third trimester

I am entering week 25 of pregnancy and starting to feel exhausted easily. Gaining another 7kg is not much compared to other preggers but it's more than what my body could contain with my total weight. My breath sounds like I am having marathon while in actual I just climb up 10 staircase.

I try not to whine but sometimes I slipped 'Penatnyer', especially when I lie down on my back for a while. This happen when I take my 5/10 min break for resting my back.

There's one day, that word ditambah dengan ayat 'Nak bawak perut pun tak larat'

Hubs dengan selamba menjawab 'Tinggal je la kalau tak larat'

and I give him this face...

He's laughing hard and I give him a pinch on his arm. Sabar jelah laki aku ni tau....

I supposed to post a picture of my baby bump but hardly taken any as I couldn't figure which position suits well. Plus, I don't look like a preggers in a glimpse. Naik train selalu tak dapat seat tau (ok. exaggerate. bukan selalu)

Baby is kicking even harder these days. Though sometimes it gives a shock but I somehow felt a relief that it's alive or sometimes I just take it as his/her reflections to what I said/did. Hubs still unlucky to feel the kick. He sometimes put down his hand and silently wait for it but the baby inside just to shy when daddy is around or probably the baby just being nice not to kick daddy. Nak jadi anak soleh/solehah yer? Amiiiin :)
