Braxton Hicks

I received an email from the bump and saw this “What are Brixton Hicks contractions”? I just read something about it at What to Expect application from Hubs’s IP. So, I went to reading about it abit further..
This is what The Expert from the Bump said..
Re: What are Braxton Hicks contractions? When could they start, and what do they feel like?
Braxton Hicks contractions (name courtesy of the English doctor who first described them in 1872) are relatively painless, irregular, and infrequent contractions that start around week six and lasting until the weeks before delivery. Though they start in the first months, you probably won’t feel them until around week 28 (if at all). These contractions are your body’s way of practicing and preparing for labor.
The tightness you feel in your uterus during a Braxton Hicks contraction comes from the tensing of the muscles in your uterus. Although they cause more annoyance than pain, drinking water or taking a walk or a warm bath should relieve any discomfort. Mild Braxton Hicks contractions are very common and nothing to worry about, but call your doctor if you’re in the first eight months and feel four or more contractions in an hour — this might be a sign of preterm labor.

I am not sure if what I have been feeling lately is Braxton Hicks or not. I do sometimes feel that my stomach tightens and cramps under my buttocks just like when I had my period. Less than 5 mins every time it happens. Sometimes I feel pain under my stomach too, the uterus area on the right. Mom said its Baby kicking me. Back pain is still zero at this point. So far, the pain is mild and still bearable.
Luckily I have Doctor’s appointment this Monday so I can tell her what’s been happening. Mudah-mudahan Allah will keep on protecting Baby. Amin Ya Rabbal Alamin~

Now we know

Yesterday after work, I told Dear Husband that I want to go to Yayasan to look at Dr Ding's opening times. I could've called but I want to try our luck as well in case the clinic still opens.
When we arrived around 6pm, we went straight to the clinic and I took a picture of their opening times. And guess what? The clinic will be open at 7pm! I was excited and nervous at the same time.

We waited for almost an hour and had our ultrasound - witnessed by Dear husband and baby Iqbal. And we finally can confirm the gender for our baby! I'm so excited and happy but my EDD and baby's weight worrying me. I definitely need to eat more! :(

Let me introduce to you, Baby A. 😍

Designer Bag Wish List

I have this list wandering in my mind for a while now and somehow it bothers me. Lol! Might as well do a post about it right? I don't think it differs a lot from my previous list though.


1. Chanel Classic Flap - medium, caviar, black with GHW This couldn't get anymore classic that the bag itself. Although I have been liking the Mini version of it more recently. With the price difference and the capacity, it seems like the mini one gets another point from me.

Also, I have been considering to get the WOC. I must say, getting a WOC is trickier. Other Designer brands have this too - I have been eyeing on the YSL one. I know Gucci and Dior have WOC too. Different price point but the capacity are almost the same for each. It's either to go with the Designer name or the price. What would you do?
Chanel WOC or YSL WOC?
2. Louis Vuitton Alma BB - preferably in navy or red
Yes yes, I know I already have one in the PM size which means that this purchase will only be justifiable if I sel…

Review: Bio Essence Tanaka White Range

As I have mentioned before, Bio Essence Tanaka White range was recommended by my best friend who is currently using it. Since we have the same skin type, this range should works on me as well. I finally bought the starter kit from Hua Ho cost $8.35 which includes facial wash, toner, day and night cream, a sample of essence and a piece of sheet mask.

Our night cream has finished and we have stopped using this range, currently trying out laneige. So, after using Bio Essence Tanaka White range for 2.5 weeks, I can see that my skin have improved. My skin moisture level improved just after one week using it. I can see that my face is smoother and radiant. My dark spots lighten and blackheads become less visible. I like this range as it is simple to use, just cleanse, tone and moisturise. These are sufficient for someone who does not like to apply a lot of products on their face.


Gentle Cleansing foam. When I first started using this wash, it was too drying for my face. I didn't feel m…
