Pain Management

It’s October!!!
I have been reading about this topic and it scares me at some point. =.=’ I have also been asking myself about my pain tolerance level. Husband says my pain tolerance is high but then again, you’ll never know what to expect during labour. So, expect the unexpected!
During the Parenting class, the nurse mentioned few options we can choose from including the laughing gas.Hehe.. But of course, the famous one these days is theepidural. I have seen people getting their epidural on tv and truthfully speaking, I don’t like the sight of it. Then again, you are in so much pain that one self (like me, who is scared with needle) might not think twice when the pain is unbearable.
It is true that each and every person has different level of pain tolerance and experiences pain differently. Some can handle more pain and some may not. According to this article [here], there are three types of pain management choices.
  • Lamaze/Child Birthing Classes - which teach you various relaxation techniques such as breathing and meditation and visualization.
  • Pain Medications – There are a number of medications that are now considered safe to take during delivery. Keep in mind that these will probably not offer you complete relief of pain they will more than likely just take the edge off the pain.
  • Epidural/Spinal Analgesia – this is where the anesthesiologist is either going to be your friend or the person you look for afterwards to have a few words with. They use local anesthetics and/or narcotics and they inject them around the spinal nerves to control the pain you feel during labor and delivery. If you are having a C-section you are probably going to have an epidural. I want you to know that it doesn’t take the feeling away contrary to what a lot of people will try to tell you. You will feel what is happening such as pressure and pulling but you will not and should not feel any pain.
Before, I thought I can handle the pain but I’m second guessing my decision now. I’m considering epidural (in case I want it during labour that I can’t handle the pain) although I know that my mom will not encourage this. She usually in the labour room with my cousins and aunties when they gave birth. Mom is like their personal midwifery and she will say a big no to epidural.
I’m gna need to learn more on the relaxation techniques so I will be able to survive without the epidural. Insya Allah.. :D Mudah-mudahan dipermudahkan olehNya jua.. 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…
