I caved and bought the Be set and BFF from the Legacy: Empress line. The print looks soooo pretty in pictures and are even more gorgeous in real life!
I was a bit iffy about the BFF since I already have the BRB. When it arrived, I took it out of the packaging and my heart sank a bit. It felt a lil heavy. Told myself to give it a few more days and then I tried out the bag. Backpack style was great, could hardly feel the weight on the shoulders. Using it a a sling bag works comfortably crossbody style. Yes, another JJB purchase I love!
I only recently learnt on the Pink Ladies forum that the Be Sets are all handmade. 😱 Amazing workmanship!!! I will not complain about print placement on any of my Be Sets anymore. *pinky swear*
So many ideas on blog entries for JuJuBe. Packing entries for the BRB and the BFF and a stash shot of what I have so far. Exciting!
So remember I said husband was nesting? Yeah, I set up the playpen thingy by myself the next day. Thought maybe I strained my back so I took a rather long nap in the afternoon. As I was slowly waking up, I felt a small gush. 😳 Was wondering if I peed so decided to go to the toilet…
More came out as I hurried to the toilet and it didn’t stop. Steady trickle of fluids. My mother went into panic mode coz my husband wasn’t there to send me straight to the delivery suite. Hurhur. I was super relaxed and told her I need to bathe and I don’t have contractions yet anyway. But mothers being mothers, kept fussing.
Smsed my gynae and he happily told me he’s around so just come straight to delivery suite. By the time husband reached Jurong, I had some contractions but nothing so regular. Maybe instinct to keep moving around, just fiddling with the stuff I packed last minute, didn’t feel the pain so much.
Everyone kept saying baby #2 was gonna be out faster but I was still holding on to the fact that Hana will not be out that fast. We made a stop at the petrol station and I even got to eat chocolates while otw to KKH. Lol! Perangai.
Husband wanted to drop me off at the 24-hr clinic but I told him he might as well go straight to carpark since I’m ok and I think I can still walk. Yup I walked to delivery suite. Lol! Walked in, handed papers over, said I have water leaking and they checked me in.
Guess what… It wasn’t my waterbag. Apparently there’s another layer of membranes and that was the one that ruptured. So already 3cm and they called my gynae, he told them to go ahead break my waterbag and induce me. Minute I heard induce, I asked for epidural. Please ah, not going through another episode of screaming coz I couldn’t control the pain.
Pretty uneventful coz once epidural was in, water bag broken and induced, took about 5 hours to fully dilate. Much shorter than #1. I even managed to laugh at my gynae coz he came in with bed head. Took about 5 minutes of pushing and Hana Selena was out.
Expected her to be much bigger but she was 2.8kg only. Tu takpe, she started turning her head left and right and lifting her legs. Kuat nye!
My birthday has come and passed and she’s still not coming out yet. Hurhur. Quite an eventful birthday coz… My husband was nesting! Lol!
Yup, he woke up, went to ikea on his own, bought a set of drawers, cleaned out the whole room at JW, fixed it all up with my dad. Amidst that, we even went to have Hei Sushi for dinner. And if you’ve seen the video on fb or ig, yeah, bloopers aplenty. 😂
So what’s left?
Transfer adik’s things over here to JW, set up her bed and give birth!
Mama has packed her hospital bag. And repacked it. All your things have been carefully labelled in ziplocks so your papa can find it easily. Mama’s things have also been packed into ziplocks.
Kakak Hessa is very excited to meet you. She says she wants to play with you. Mama and papa have even gotten your kakak a bag full of small gifts to make sure she feels happy and not overwhelmed when you are out. Things like a small bag of art stuff, stickers, puzzles, snacks, a bubble set. Her big sister kit at the hospital, we called it.
Kakak has been a lil clingier lately, insisting on knowing where I am at all times. But she’s been a real champ at making me feel good. “Are u ok today mama? Don’t be scared of doctor ok? Adik, don’t make mama sakit. Mama, I’m here ok?” We watched some birth videos the other day and she was so amazed. Hahahaha!
Some people say if you get a lot of heartburn or pee a lot, it means that you will have a baby with a head full of hair. Hurhur. Well, definitely lots of heartburn and peeing.
I’m just waiting for constant pains coz there’s no way I’m going to spend 24 hours strapped to the hospital bed again. So be a good girl adik and come out soon…
