Baby Iqbal's Birth Story

It has been almost a month since Baby Iqbal arrival. It’s time to write about his birth story before I forget (not sure how am I going to forget that experience! *winks*)
My EDD was 22nd Nov 2011 and the real delivery happened on the 19th Nov (though most people ‘wanted’ me to gave birth on the 20th haha mission denied!).
19th Nov – After Midnight
… I kept going to the washroom. I thought I was having my normal toilet hugging session (had it since the past couple of weeks). Towards the morning, I realised that I had been going to the washroom more frequently than usual and the amount seems to increase. I thought to myself, maybe I drank too much yesterday. I didn’t get much sleep and decided to wake up around 5+am. I accidentally peed on the bed and when we opened the light, we saw mixture of  liquid and blood. Husband went “your water broke!” and I replied, no it’s not. I was imagining a lot of water on the floor like what you’d normally see in the movie. Lol!
I went downstairs and asked my mom, how water broke actually happens? I told her that I’ve been going to the washroom and I saw the liquid and blood. She said, it’s not time yet. Since your baby is a boy, it’s expected to see blood in your pee. =_=’ Then, I had my breakfast and shower. My dad was worried already. Iman took the day off to company me at home. Then, my mom called from the hospital and told me to go to the labour room. “What?!! Today?!!”
Husband was so worried, eager, excited hehe mixed feelings! I was too but more to being scared of the delivery pain though. *sighs* I walked all the way from the parking space to the labour room with Husband and felt fine. When we arrived ataround 11am, the nurse did VE and I was only 3cm dilated. Then, they checked my BP and it was very high. They gave me med and told them that I was scared. Being really honest there! Huhu
They checked me in to the labour room (still scared) and they gave me the “sleepy jab” (I’m not sure what they called it) to quickens my dilation. At 5.15pm, I was already fully dilated. They did few VE before hand and wanted to break my water but they could not do so as they already felt Baby’s hair. I told them that maybe my water has broke because I went to the washroom many times since after midnight =_=’ and yes, my water had broke earlier! Oh! The contractions was very strong after I was fully dilated. :’(
After countless of pushing (because I have a very short breath), it took about 2 hours to finally deliver Baby Iqbal. It’s that long! Husband was beside me til the last 30mins when the midwives told him to go out :( but mama was still in there with me. Baby finally arrives at 7.33pm. When they put Baby on top of me after that final push (that actually went black and blank), I felt really relieved and grateful that Baby’s finally here. =’) Alhamdulillah..
I am really thankful that all my family was outside waiting for me and the arrival of Baby Iqbal. My MIL was at the Hospital from the morning (she was actually there to take Nini Boy’s medicine with FIL). My siblings and in-laws, my aunts and uncles and my bestfriends was all there. I felt really blessed and thankful. After the delivery, one by one they came to the labour room to visit me. It really made me teary and very happy. :D
As a first time mom, I’m still learning just about everything. Sacrificing sleep and all but everything is well with everyone’s help. We are very happy beyond words can describe with Baby Iqbal’s around. I really love my son! Yes, I have a son. We have a son. :D

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…
