My 29th…

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! 

Anytime now…

Dear AdikH,

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… 

Love, 

Mama

Rocking Chair Makeover

  A few years back Hessa rocked herself to sleep in this very rocking chair /glider at husband’s aunt’s house. Well, she’s shifting house and the glider was gifted to us. 😁 

Once we had it in the house though, it wasn’t such an easy task. It didn’t match any of our decor/rooms. I wanted it in the girls’ room so I could keep an eye on Hessa while I’m putting AdikH to sleep or nursing her. 

Confident giler tau nak refurbish the chair sendiri. All coz of pinterest. Lol. Saw this and that and this. Then I realized something… I’m still pregnant. Lol! Gotta be less ambitious. 

So first stop is spotlight. If there’s no cushions that fit, I gotta make my own and err, not looking forward to hand-stitching coz I don’t have a sewing machine! 😱

Thankfully, husband spotted two thick cushions. And I mean 3″ thick box cushions. Not cheap but makes my life easier already. 

   

So I’m left with that skirting thingy to remove and the whole chair to spray to a colour we like. Maybe even remove the wings, looking a bit too ol’skool there. 

Took the back and the arms off. 

  
It was a process and a half just trying to remove the skirting… 😥 The staples were too deeply embedded in the wood to remove and the wood was raw! 

  
Yeahhhhh. Wasn’t too happy about it. But ok still salvageable. Just need to buy white cloth to cover and staple before spraying. Then after da habis spraying the whole chair, can staple over grey cloth that matches the cushions. 

Yup, that called for another trip to Spotlight. 

  
After spraying! And yeah I purposely covered the top and put extra foam on it, just to make sure it lasts longer. So once the paint dries, I check to make sure it’s evenly sprayed and then I can cut the grey fabric to be stapled onto the seat. Hoorayyyy! It’s coming together!

  
And it’s done! Yeay me and hubby (for spraying the chair)!!! 

 

 

Waving the white flag

34 weeks and I’m officially on hospitalization leave. Wanted to stick it out at work for longer but actually not possible with all the cramps and pains and whatnots. 

AdikH is measuring at 2.6kg while the normal average weight is actually 2.1kg. And yes, that 0.5kg makes a load of difference. From the pressure to the amount of pain from whichever nerve she is lying on. Could hardly walk or get up at times. She has dropped so low and I got some weird feeling cramps yesterday. 

Ok enough is enough la eh. Also think I over exerted myself on Friday and Saturday. Haiz. So yes, went waddling slowly back to TPS to get my leave. Cannot tahan. 

Got my Ju-ju-be Pinky Swear loot yesterday and I’m sooo happy. It’s a really pretty print… Got 2 sets of the baglets or Be sets and one had slightly crooked alignment. Oh well.  

   
   
Pardon the tummy shot. Heheheh. There’s a Super Be in the same print but it’s super big. Lol. Not sure if I wanna keep it for use or to sell it off. Still thinking about it… Will be putting up a packing/what’s in my bag blog post if I have the time…
