Week 28 visit to Prof John Tee

Mummy pray and hope and wish; drank lots of water and kept pacing around before the scan, hoping to catch a glimpse of your gender today. Filled with excitement I looked into the scan monitor and all we saw was your curved spine with head pointing down and legs folded. Doctor tried but it was another failed attempt.

Wanted to start buying stuff for you but now we can’t pick pretty colors nor boy/girl indicated stuff for you. And Mummy already is half way through your first scrap album; trying my best to keep it as neutral and none gender focus as possible. You’re really giving us a challenge ah?

Measured your weight today and you’re as 1234g, measuring 23.3cm in length. Gynae said all is fine and you’re healthy. With your arrival inching closer, and you getting into position to see the world, its highly likely that we’ll be kept in suspense till your arrival!

Looks like it’ll be neutral colored clothes, accessories and necessities for you for the first 3 months.

Be good and grow well baby. We’ll try again on 20th July.

Love you!

Young Parents Fiesta 2011

I’ve long stopped purchasing magazines from newsstand but recently, an old friend working at SPH passed me a copy of Young Parents Magazine and from there I found out that there will be very attractive free gifts when I subscribe to the magazine at the roadshow!

The kiasu woman in me already booked my hubby, my best friend and her hubby to head down to Young Parents Fiesta on either 25 or 26 June at Marina Square atrium. But when I did a little research and seeing the long queue at the subscription counter, I’m reconsidering whether we should go on the first day instead! So KS right?

If the gift I’m eyeing on gets redeemed fully before I can get my hands on it how? Continue reading “Young Parents Fiesta 2011”

The Studio Loft + Cordlife at Motherhood Exhibition 2011

For the first time, we visited a mother-baby exhibition. Was thrilled to see so many cute babies around Singapore Expo tonight. Found out about Motherhood Exhibition on Jame’s website and The Studio Loft’s promo on Facebook; so I suggested we go check it out.

Not prepared to buy any stuff for the baby yet; shopping spree will start in July. But we did got ourselves booked for two, in my opinion, very important and essential things. (1) Signed up for cord blood bank with Cordlife and (2) two photo sessions with The Studio Loft.

Getting Started on Baby’s 1st Scrapbook

While we wait for the arrival of our precious one, I started working on Baby’s first scrapbook! Scrapbooking has always been a part of my life since 6 years ago, but there wasn’t any strong motivation to get scrapping for awhile. Now that we are expecting our first baby, its time I get back to this expensive, time-consuming but lovely hobby. Keeping in mind not to buy unnecessary stuff that I’ll never use.

For Baby’s 1st Scrapbook, I’m working on a 12×12 album to record Baby’s growth in the first year and before birth. So far, I’ve got 2 layouts done and the scrapaholic mojo is slowly coming back to me. Continue reading “Getting Started on Baby’s 1st Scrapbook”

You Posed Like MJ after night of Thriller Live

The week before the scheduled visit to the Gynae, Ayah and Mummy went to catch Thriller Live at Marina Bay Sands. I could feel you moving to the beat at some point during the show. We imagined you doing the moonwalk in the womb.

At the Gynae, you just had to prove us right didn’t you? The last time you had both your hands covering your ears and now you’ve got one hand over your forehead! Doing the MJ pose eh?

Gynae was not able to determine your gender accurately still as your legs were again folded up. He said its 90% a girl. Are you? Shall wait 5 more weeks to check again.

Loving you much!

The Suspense

Baby has been keeping us in suspense. Both scan we try to see whether you’re a boy or girl, but you weren’t in the right position for the doctor to scan. Mummy was anticipating and counting down to the day of the second scan at KKH to see you. The doctor doing the scan for me that day was rather inpatient and she was called out to help at another room. Instead of taking time for you to go to the right position, she simply told us that its not possible to see that day.

Mummy was disappointed.

Two more weeks to the next visit to Prof Tee for the regular checkup. Hope you’ll be facing up instead of down this time. Don’t keep Mummy and Daddy in suspense for too long k?

Love you baby!
