My bag. Our bags.

At first I planned to only pack ONE BAG. The hospital is really near to our house. I think less that 10 mins trip on smooth traffic days? If we really forgotten anything, Oink can just drive back to our house and get it. But after careful thinking, would I want him to leave my side and miss memorable moments? I want to minimise that. And after looking at the check  list Jaqq gave me, I think I can't possible fit all the stuff into just one bag.  :-p

My almost exploding bag

So I took out a backpack, washed it. I repacked everything. Oink stuff are mostly inside the backpack. Baby and mine in the grey bag. I will also bring along Kitty (the pillow) 'x' Kitty was the best thing I brought back from my Ho Chin Minh trip.

Things I've packed:

For me : 

Packed :

- A hooded jacket. I didn't want to cover my head with a cap/hat/ malay-looking head cover. So I'll just use the hood. Plus the jacket can keep me warm.

-  Disposable panties

- Towel

- 2 pairs of socks

- I think around nine pieces of sanitary pads and maternity pads (I never use a maternity pad before, so just in case I don't like it, I will switch to my usual sanitary pad)

Yet to pack :

- Kitty!

- Cup/ mug. My friend advised me to bring own cup/ mug as all you'll get there is a hot flask, and the cap as a cup 'x' . 

- extra set of clothings

- nursing bras

- some gadgets (mp3 player/ my psp for some distraction) or some magazines

For Baby :

Packed :

- 3 cloth diapers

- a set of mittens and booties

- a button in front top

- a cloth diaper fastener from Anakku

- A hooded receiving blanket as I don't plan to bring a hat for BB, I don't think her little head will feel comfortable in one.

- A towel, I do not know how my CL plan to swaddle her, so just in case, I will bring along a towel.

Yet to pack :

- Can't think of any now. Any ideas?

For Oink:

Packed : 

- 1 hooded jacket, the hospital is COLD

- 1 pair of socks to keep my baby daddy warm 

- comfort kit from Air Asia (LOL!!) - consist of a blanket, a sleep mask (I doubt he will use this), and a pillow (manual inflation needed)

For Us : 

Yet to pack : 

- toiletries

- 100 plus (my gynae said I am allowed to drink it, SO I SHALL BRING SOME)


- a set of cutlery so that I can stir my Milo, and Oink can use it to eat tapao-ed food.

- chargers

- some snacks for baby daddy? 

OK! That should be it. For now.

what I want to eat before D day

I have been thinking long and hard about what I want to eat before going into labour. I will be in "jail" (confinement) for a month after that, and there's be a lot of food that I will miss. But deciding on what to put into the list is a bit tricky, I do not want to list down all those junk food that I like, cos BB is still inside of me, I have to think of her also. So after careful thinking, these will be in my list (to be finalised, LOL) :

1. McD- I just love the fries.
Had Big N' Tasty lunch set, and the burger turns out to be not that big and tasty 'x'

2. Pizza hut - not for the pizza, I love the sweet and spicy wings
Was really sad when I can't find sweet and spicy wings in the menu, till I almost cried 'x' oink suggested we try the New Orleans Drummetes instead. And what do you know, the Drummets tasted JUST LIKE sweet and spicy wings. HAPPY ME!

3. Raja Ayam Bakar - love the sambal..omg  Just had it. *BURP!*

4. Taugeh mee (sweet) - I just love how its sticky and sweet..hmm, sounds so wrong  Ate! With fried egg on top! 'x'

5. Steamed corn - people who know me well, knows HOW MUCH I LOVE corns had it multiple times already 'x'

6. Ice Cream - you guys are lucky you can eat them any time..my friend told me she ate alot  of ice creams during her last mth, and end up gaining 3kg! I was so mortified, I refrained from eating one of my favourite thing in the world (for as long as I can).

HMM, I think that's all. Not too much right?

Coming soon

very soon... 3 wks  or less?I can't believe how time flies. Soon, our lives will like change forever. But this is a change we have been anticipating. :-) We still haven't agree on a name yet. It seems to be the most difficult decision of all, knowing what name we chose will be stuck with her forever 'x'
