Week 36 - review

Yesterday I had my first weekly appointment. The usual routine – urine test for the sugar, blood pressure (a bit high but still normal) and weight (same as last week).
Finally after waiting for more than 2 hrs, they called out my name. It was short and brief. The nurse checked Baby’s heartbeat :D and gave second dose of the anti-tetanus jab (that hurts! huhu). The Doctor told me to get another ultrasound next week to check on my placenta. At first, I didn’t know that I was suppose to get my placenta check, it was when I made my booking at the ultrasound receptionist who told me.
So when I told mama about it, she was shocked (and I think a bit mad and worried too) that I need to get another ultrasound. She said, they have checked your placenta last time when they did the ultrasound. Why do they asked you to do it again? It’s not good for the Baby. Do you know the risks involved when doing the ultrasound? and it goes on and on.. and I was just sitting there in the car …… *speechless*
Okay so we are in my 36 weeks and I have been reading about the Perineal massage. Thanks to my best friend who managed to help me get Mothercare’s perineal gel in the UK. The thing is, they do not sell it here. Today I received an email from Mummysreviews and she mentioned about the Perineal massage too. I have read the how in WhatToExpect but I have not done it diligently yet. Can checkhere too for the guide on how to do it.
First I read about the perineal massage was here, then here and here. Credit to Diah for the valuable information. Been researching about it since then. You know, to prevent tear and episiotomy. I’m actually scared about this especially when I found out that the tear and stitch will sort of limit our capabilities after we gave birth and not to forget the pain that comes along with it. Yes, I have fear with everything that involves needle, pain and blood. Ya Allah, please give me strength. Amin…
Next is to get my hospital bag (have not start yet) and Baby box ready (almost there!). We’re having a Doa Selamat and Baby Shower this Saturday with our friends :D Can’t waittttt!!!

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…
