I am Mrs Toh

Archive for the ‘Foodie-logue’ Category

BB is 8 months old this month.

BB really loves to clap his hands. He will clap his hand at any opportunity, even when he’s about to sleep. ๐Ÿ‘

He can point at things now, especially love to poke his toys or anything we are holding. He will also wave his pointing finger as if saying “Orh hor..” Lol, so funny.

He can now wave Hi and Bye to people. Will always wave bye to mom and helper when he’s going to bed, then wave Hi in the morning when I bring him out and he sees our helper. ๐Ÿ‘‹

He can sit up by himself when crawling now~ at first can only kinda sit on one side, half sit half lying down, super cute. But slowly, he can sit properly. ๐Ÿ‘

He can pull himself up to kneeling position in his cot. He can even stand although only for a very short while. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Sometimes he loves to shout when he’s sitting in his rocker, for no reason. T_T He has a very loud voice, inherited from his Daddy. Haha.

1st August
Went to Hello Kitty cafe with Mr Toh and his colleagues to celebrate him getting good news! Yay! Congrats my Mr Toh and good job!

Food was quite OK, very normal but edible.

4th August
BB the nap fighter. Didn’t nap again after his last nap at 1pm. Haiyo this notty boy.
Came home and read 2 books to him then made milk and brought him to the room to sleep. He waved goodbye when saying goodnight to the helper. Awwww.. my baby is growing up. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

5th August

Brought BB to Bridges Montessori in the morning to check it out. The location very ulu… though they had a full Montessori system, somehow we didn’t like it very much. Had lunch then went back home.

Daddy shopping, we wefie~

We watched League of Gods with mom later in the evening. What a crappy show!

6th August
Our helper’s birthday! Brought her to Orchard for dinner~ we tried the Indo restaurant at Paragon. Food was quite good. BB didn’t want to nap in the carrier at all today even with the hood up. ๐Ÿ˜–
Got home and we cut the cake~ then fasterly put BB to bed.

7th August
Brought BB out to my cousin’s house, his 2nd daughter’s full month. BB very clingy as usual. Lol.

Pokemon-ing while babywearing and making BB sleep. Babywearing FTW!

9th August

Brought BB out in the evening to Dad’s house~ he was such a good boy today. I fed him his porridge there while Ah Yi held him on her lap. He also played with them for a while before I put him to bed. But he woke up after a while crying, I managed to pat him back to sleep. He slept till Mr Toh came and woke up crying again. Faster carried him out cause Audrey was also sleeping inside.

Sleepy grumpy baby

But no use, Audrey woke up too. So we cut the cake, cake for Singapore’s birthday. Lol.
While wiping down BB, he kept reaching out for the lotion bottle. Gave it to him so he wouldn’t struggle so much and I realised he seems to think that was his milk. ๐Ÿ˜… So I faster made his milk, fed him and he KO-ed. Poor BB, must have been really hungry.

12th August
BB seemed sad today when I was leaving for work. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Sorry baobei, Mama need to work. Mama love you~
Went to suntec to collect the toy I pre-ordered for BB and the item was so big I had to cab home to put first. Then took the train back to work.

Pokemon hunting at night with his brothers @ 401.

So crowded!

13th August
Wanted to assemble BB’s new toy but upon opening the box, I realised the condition of the item was so bad! Got scratches, got opened bag and whole thing just looks used. So disappointed with this fair organizer SuperMom. Never buying anything from them ever again. Took pictures and FB msged them plus emailed them too. At first they were only willing to exchange item but I refused. Who knows if I will get another 2nd hand item. So they agreed to collect back the item and refund me the $. Never ask them to refund my cab fare very good liao.

Lol @ his expression.

Met up with Char and Jia+Kevin for dinner at Serangoon Gardens, Steam Box.

Dessert, the durian mousse at Dessert Bowl is awesome~

Kevin sent me home after that, thank you!
Changed and went out to 401 with Mr Toh after that. Pokรฉmon time~ ๐Ÿ˜„

14th August
Brought BB to my uncle’s place in Woodlands. We took the bus! BB slept the whole journey. BB is such a good boy. Mama love you~
He was clingy at first and wary of my aunts as he seldom sees them. But towards the end, he was ok already and even laughed when they played with him. Mama so proud of you baobei~ baobei ๅพˆๆฃ’! ๐Ÿ‘ Cabbed home with mum after that.

15th August
Took half day leave in the afternoon to go collect my IC. Wanted to eat our fave bak chor mee but it was closed on that day.
So I met Mr Toh at Bugis instead. Had our late lunch and went Pokรฉmon hunting~

16th August
His favourite sleeping position.

18th August
Met Mr Toh at Vivocity after work, that place so many Pokemons and Pokestops with lures! Lol. We had dinner at Morganfield’s, the bacon wrapped pork balls were so yummy!

Their pork chop not bad too but kinda salty after a while.

While having dinner, we saw groups of people running towards the Sentosa Boardwalk so we checked our map and turns out there was a Lapras at Sentosa. But too far…. =(
Two Caucasian men sitting beside our table were amazed by the scene, lol.

19th August
BB today morning.

Met Mr Toh at Vivo after work again! This time we were headed for Sentosa. But that place sucks, very big and very hot. =(
We walked back to Vivo and decided to have a snack at Brewerks.

Yummy calamari & pork belly satay!

My silly husband

The boardwalk was really quite lovely.

21st August
“You better give me my food now, when I am asking nicely, I tell you.”

26th August
BB today morning. New expression, Mama melting liao!

Concert day! Ended work earlier and met Mr Toh at Suntec for dinner before our concert~
Terry Lin One Take 2016.
We felt so young there cause the majority of the audience were our parents’ age. :X
His concert was amazing! One of the best I’ve been to and his voice is just so good that it gave us goosebumps!
We then went to MBS for Pokรฉmon~

27th August
Mr Toh’s off day~ I woke in the morning, played a bit with BB then went back to bed and slept till 3pm. Woke up with Mr Toh then we went out for lunch without BB cause the haze was too much.
Caught Train to Busan and it was such a good movie!
I then went to Eu Yan Sang to see a sinseh about my right thumb. Starting to hurt again.
We then went to Hougang Ave 10 after that, saw Charlene and her hubby near there when we were looking for a Vaporeon! Then saw Wensheng and Huimin too at Ave 10. Lol. Sg too small liao.

28th August
Met Huiyi at Somerset to go do our hair together~ Had lunch at Supply & Demand. Turns out Huiyi and her bf were also playing Pokemon! Lots to talk about. Haha.

29th August
Someone can sit up by himself! Though not very stable but good effort baobei!
Putting him to bed is quite a chore now. If he’s not tired, he will climb all over the bed. I then put him in his cot, but he went to pull himself up by holding on to the railings. He then tried to stand and succeeded for a split second. Then he fell on his back and my heart almost stopped. But then he squealed and laughed so happily I couldn’t help but join in. ๐Ÿ˜„ But pls don’t make this a habit baobei~
Carried him up after that and realised why so smelly. Turns out he pooped! No wonder didn’t want to sleep. Were you trying to tell Mama you pooped baobei? Sorry Mama didn’t pay attention. Lol. ๐Ÿ˜†

31st August
Mr Toh’s off~ met him at Chinatown for dumplings. Wanted to go for the Abra nest at Pearl’s Hill Park but realised we can’t access it because of some construction going on….so we went back to Waterway Point to buy fruits for praying. Headed home to put the stuff then headed out again for supper~ Mr Toh said he want to watch movie… Told him I accompany you for supper not enough, you still want movie, ๅคช่ฟ‡ๅˆ†ไบ†! ๐Ÿ˜„



Posted on: August 4, 2016

BB is such a curious baby, always looking around him when he hear voices or when he sees lights etc.

Whenever we are holding things when carrying him, he will always stretch his hand out wanting to grab it.

Always stay this way, my kpo baby. ๐Ÿ˜˜

When we carry him near the window, he will know to look at the cars and LRT trains. ๐Ÿ‘

When he’s lying down and his pacifier drops, he knows to find it and pick it up and bring to his mouth. Heh so clever.

Stopping breastfeeding this month, slowly decreasing the amount of pumping so I stopped pumping in the middle of the night and I realised it makes me miss the moments with Mr Toh. I rarely see him during our work days, only on his off day can see him. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
But the friends have been jio-ing me for drinking sessions! Bad influence much? Haha. ๐Ÿ˜…

1st June
BB woke on the wrong side of the bed today, he woke up crying really loudly, I wonder if he had a nightmare?
BB was asleep when I got home. He woke at 10:45pm and 4:15am for milk. The 2nd time he woke, he didn’t fall back asleep immediately but I was too tired so I just let him fall asleep on his own in his crib.

2nd June
Luckily Mr Toh woke me up today, don’t know why my alarm did not ring?
Was pumping and Mr Toh was showing me nice music videos. Done pumping and went back to our bedroom so I can prepare for work.
Saw BB’s upright head in his crib the moment I stepped into the room. The little darling was already awake but not crying. ไน–ๅฎ่ด๏ฝž Asked who he was waiting for, whether he was waiting for Mama and he said “Ahhhh…”. Lol.
Mr Toh played with him while I got ready for work then I carried him out so Mr Toh could sleep.

5th June
Watched TMNT, not bad.

7th June
On leave today! Mr Toh had class in the morning so I took a mid morning nap together with BB. ๐Ÿ˜
Met Mr Toh at Serangoon at 12pm, we were going for the Friso car redemption. But omg, the queue was craaazy! People had to queue for hours, the longest I heard was 4 hours, end up they didn’t have enough stock. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
But we didn’t queue that long, we saw a shorter queue so I went to check it out and was told that was for home delivery at a charge of $30. So we opted for that and we still spent 2 hours there even though the queue was really short, less than 20 people. Wtf wtf. First experience and such a disappointment. Tsk.
We then had lunch before heading home and Mr Toh took a nap.
We then brought BB to Takashimaya to try the Lillebaby carrier. Very comfy so we bought the All Seasons! $239 with 15% discount works out to around $203. Pretty good deal. ๐Ÿ‘
We had dinner, udon at the foodcourt before heading home. The little one was so tired that he was falling asleep in the carrier while we were queuing for the cab. ๐Ÿ˜…

09 June
Baked a sweet potato when I got home, to prepare for BB’s venture into porridge. Got to let him try millet, sweet potatoes, carrots and pumpkin before I can cook milllet porridge for him. It was those purple skin yellow flesh ones. Stole a bit to taste and it was very sweet! So yummy. I’m sure he will love it.
Went into the room and he had just got into bed after his milk. He wasn’t asleep yet and he saw me and kept looking at me. Then started whining. Carried him up and realised he was very sweaty. So I on the aircon and carried him for a while waiting for him to cool down before putting him back in his cot. ๐Ÿ˜˜

10 June
Went to Albert Centre during my lunch time to buy ikan bilis! Bought those without the head and backbones to grind into powder for BB. Mum can use in soups and stir fries too. ๐Ÿ‘

Helper fed him the sweet potato today, he liked it! But he pooped 3 times after that. Like whoa. Wonder if it’s normal?
Did some googling and apparently yes, it helps in constipation. Haha.

Went home to put the dried goods then headed out to Waterway Point for dinner. Had mentaiko chicken bento at Kuriya, Mr Toh had the salmon sashimi and kurobuta bento. Their salmon sashimi is very fresh! ๐Ÿ‘ Bentos were yummy too! Headed home after that so I can pump (am down to 3 pumps a day) and lie down for a while before we headed out for movie with KQ, XM & Nelly. Watching Warcraft! Nice!! I thought I’d fall asleep but I didn’t!

11 June
Brought BB out for a while, he slept on the train and woke up when we reached Novena. Did my errands then headed back to Punggol. Went to Waterway Point to buy stuffs. I put the hood up and shortly after that, he fell asleep again! Yay to sleepy dust! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
Transferred him to the bed after I reached home, the poor thing was very sweaty, think the hood makes it really hot even though I had unzipped to the mesh.
Cooked oatmeal porridge for his dinner, I kay kiang added in the avocado. BB gave his funny expression then wouldn’t open his mouth for the 2nd time until a while later. He took 3 spoons before totally rejecting it. Didn’t wanna open his mouth and gave us his funny expression. Hahahaha! Threw it away then gave him rice cereal. Lol. #momfail

12 June
Playing with BB on the sofa, he grabbed his chou chou and wanted to put in his mouth but I pulled it back. He tried a 2nd time and I did it again and he went “Arghhhhhh” is a deep tone. Angry ah? LOL.

13 June
Took time off earlier today, met Mr Toh at Liang Court to collect BB’s hand and footprints from Best Imprezzione. The uncle there so friendly and funny, kept saying to bring BB along next time so he can play with him. Makes me wonder how BB would react to him. ๐Ÿ˜„ Probably cry.

I had the tonkatsu omurice at Meidi-ya, it’s very nice! ๐Ÿ‘ Mr Toh already ate something before coming so he only tried some of mine.
We then headed to Parkway Parade as he needed to collect something. He then had KFC there before we headed home. I went to pump and slept after that while Mr Toh went to meet his friends.

14 June
Mr Toh on MC, having bad cough. But he still went to open the shop 1st till their part timer came to work.
Went home after work, woke Mr Toh up for dinner, we just ate something simple at home. I went to bed first around 10pm, so tired.
BB woke a few times but never even finish 100ml of milk. Hmmm…

16 June
BB woke when I was pumping in the morning but he didn’t cry, I only saw him when I went in to change after pumping. He guai guai laid on his tummy waiting for me to finish changing before I carried him out. ๐Ÿ˜˜
He was drinking his milk when I needed to leave, so I said goodbye to him. But when I reached the door, he stopped drinking his milk so the helper brought him to the door and I was telling him byebye when he responded, kinda sound like he was saying ๅ‘ƒ. Super cute lah.

21 June
BB know how to turn while on his tummy liao! Turning like a tornado for weeks after, he gets everywhere by turning and rollinng. Hahaha super cute!

BB is now 8.1kgs as on 10th May, in the 90th percentile. ๐Ÿ˜‚

When carrying him facing front, he likes to kick and kick! Looks like he’s running, cycling or swimming. Super cute!
And when he’s lying on his chair, his legs keep kicking too. Especially when we cover his legs with his blankie.
When he sleeps, he also kicks off all blanket! Haiyo, this naughty boy.

When it’s time for his purees, he will open his mouth wide in anticipation. He finishes each mouthful fast and is a tad impatient for the next mouth. He eats well with gusto. ๐Ÿ˜„

Love his expectant face here!

He likes to be on his tummy now too. Will flip over when we put him down on his back.
He loves to sleep on his side & on his tummy too. When we put him to sleep on his back, he will turn to his side on his own and sometimes flip over to sleep on his tummy. Haha very cute when he does that. Really look like a drunk baby. ๐Ÿ˜‚

He knows how to pick up his pacifier and put in his mouth, though he loves to bite the back of it instead, naughty boy. Bite until it squeaks. Same goes for his teether. Lol.

He loves to move his hand like he’s patting you, and will smack his hand against our palms if we hold it up to him.

Trying to start him on a schedule, hope it works for him. Also trying to wean him off night feedings. Shall see how it goes.

1st May
Brought BB out myself~ We went to Harbourfront’s Mothercare. BB fell asleep on the MRT on the way there. ๐Ÿ˜†

7th May
Steamboat buffet lunch at Coca with Daph and Bee. Quite value for $ but Mr Toh probably won’t like it cause it serves pork fillets instead of pork slices.
Then hair prettifying time at Focus!
Was only done at around 5pm, we bought food back to my home as they wanna see BB. BB was a good boy, just very shy. Haha.
After BB slept, we went to Waterway Point to walk walk and it was soooo crowded.
Had dessert at Cedele as it was less crowded. Brownie and ice cream not bad neh.
They then left for home while I bought dinner back home.

Pizza was yummy as usual but service really cannot make it.
Went to Cafe Mosaic at Carlton Hotel to collect the durian cake I ordered for Mr Toh’s birthday~

10 May
Brought the cake out for Mr Toh at midnight. ^^

On leave as it was BB’s vaccination today.
While waiting to see the doctor, I accidentally kiap-ed his earlobe with the pacifier clip. OMG!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜จ I’m so sorry baobei~! Mummy dumb dumb! He cried really badly and I spent a while calming him down. Luckily there was a lot of distractions in the clinic.
Soon, it was our turn. Upon seeing BB, Dr Anthony “Aiyo, so cute!” And pinched his cheeks. Ahahahha so funny this doctor.

So while Dr Anthony was checking on BB, listening to his heartbeat and stuff, BB started pouting. Distracted him with the toys. Then time for injection.
When he flipped BB over on his tummy, BB started looking worried and cried and once the diaper was off, that’s it. BB started wailing! Even before the needle touched him. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Does he remember from his last visit!? Anyway, he cried like a poor thing, tears free flowing, nose mucus too. *sayang* Occasionally outburst of screaming too. Oh dear. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

He calmed down soon & fell asleep soon after we left the clinic and we cabbed over to Waterway Point for lunch. BB remained asleep until I was finishing my lunch. *hugs* He woke up in a good mood though, hehe.

Papa & son. The 2 most important men in my life.

We went home to rest after that, then woke up for dinner.

Cake cutting before we left for dinner. Look how happy BB is! Lol.

Playing peekaboo with BB in the morning.

Mr Toh’s off day, we went to Grandpa’s and Dad’s place. BB cried at Grandpa’s place again. ๐Ÿ˜ก He was ok at Dad’s, maybe because we stayed in the bedroom. Dad and Ahyi played with him and he even smiled. Seems like he had a good time. ๐Ÿ˜ Dad sent us home again.

25 May

27 May
BB woke up fussing for milk so I left him lying tummy down in his cot to go make milk for him. When I came back, I was surprised he wasn’t crying. I saw his head bowed and intently chewing something. He didn’t even notice I was back. I thought it was his pacifier but when I got nearer, I saw he was chewing on the red packet we put on his cot for ๅŽ‹ๅฒ purposes. I went up to him and exclaimed “haiyo, ไฝ ๅœจๅƒ็บขๅŒ…ๅ•Š?” He turned around quickly and looked like he got a shock! Lol! Like naughty boy got caught doing something wrong, hahaha. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Hurriedly carried him up and took away the red packet. Notty boy!

28 May

Someone playing with saliva while shitting. LOL.

30 May

BB will now lean on our shoulder when we carry him, previously he’d only do that when he wants to sleep.
He can flip with no problem now. Likes to sleep on his stomach now, hehe so cute.
Brings his feet up and puts it in his mouth. ๐Ÿ˜… Sometimes both feet.
Reaches out and grabs things now with both hands.
Likes to move his fingers, kinda like scratching or grabbing motion, especially against the surface of anything with his left hand, Mattress, bumper, pillow, my shirt etc. So farnie. Haha. I like to ask him if the mattress is itchy?
When I carry him, he’s starting to grab my specs too. Oh oh.

It was raining when we reached and we were stranded at the main building. We found cardboard for ourselves and luckily I brought along the rain cover for BB’s stroller so he was nice and dry.
It was BB’s first time praying to his grandma and first time ‘holding’ the joss sticks. ๐Ÿ˜…
Headed home after that as BB was tired, he didn’t nap much. He slept when we reached home and woke up a little while later at 6pm plus for milk. Mr Toh and I KO-ed too.
When I woke at around 8pm, BB was still awake and kept resisting his nap. Managed to put him to bed at 8 pm plus and he fell asleep on his own. Think he was a tad over simulated.
Mr Toh and I then went to Waterway Point to meet Gerald for dinner at Swensens. Service was atrocious while the food was so so.

4th April
Took half day off in the morning to pray to ancestors for ๆธ…ๆ˜Ž.

15th Feb
Went to Waterway Point in the afternoon to buy some things. Tried Chop Chop, not very nice… bought London Fat Duck back for dinner.
BB didn’t sleep much the whole day, when Mr Toh came back, he said BB’s eyes were wide open. Fed him milk and he went to sleep after a while. BB woke again at 3am plus and I wanted to change his diapers first before feeding him. I got a surprise when I opened up his diaper, it was full of poop! He usually doesn’t poo at night so I wasn’t expecting that. Then he started crying and Mr Toh came in the room luckily. Asked for his help to calm BB while I cleaned his butt. Not working. He didn’t even want his pacifier. So I had to work faster but the poop was sticking to his butt already and it made it harder to clean. Aiyo, poor BB was crying his head off. Finally cleaned up everything and changed his diapers and the poor thing was still crying a bit. Mr Toh carried him and tried to calm him, he gave us a super ๅฏๆ€œ look with downturned lips. See liao I also heart pain. ๐Ÿ˜ข He was ok after a while and finished his milk and went back to sleep. Whew.
He has now gotten into the habit of ‘talking’ to the fish painting in our living room. Everyday we will put him in his chair and he likes to see the painting and recently started ‘talking’ to it. He will get so happy he will keep smiling and sometimes even laugh! Super duper cute!

Brought BB out today to Lavender to eat bcm! Then headed to AMK to meet Daniel and Andrew. Then went to Dad’s house.
Reached home and wiped down BB. Then let him lie down for a while and he seemed hungry as he didn’t seem sleepy so I fed him his milk. He then fell asleep shortly. Watched ๆˆ‘ๆ˜ฏๆญŒๆ‰‹4 episode 5 with Mr Toh and went to sleep after that. When I next woke to feed BB, it was already 5am! Wa…. I think he must have been too tired from the day’s activities.

Met Mr Toh at Waterway Point the other day for supper but BurgerUp closed by the time we came out from NTUC. So we ended up at Tenderfresh who was still open. Also last min jio-ed Daniel and Gerald for movie! Vegas to Macau, err very lame and a bit boring.

Caught Deadpool the other day. Nice! So funny.

Also watched 13 Soldiers of Benghazi, loved the action.

13 Jan
Went to Mothercare baby fair at Harbourfront and bought a few things.
Also bought Merries diapers as the pack at home is finishing and NTUC was having a promo. Changed bottles for BB, trying out Tommee Tippee now. I love their bottle shape, so cute.

15 Jan
Bought BB out to gaigai~
Went AMK whse sales to trade in our unused milk bottles gifted by other people. Then shun bian bought spectra m breast pump for me to bring to work or when we go out for long period of time. Also saw Parklon mat so we got that too as well as a play yard. Mr Toh’s colleagues kindly sponsored the diapers and Parklon mat as a gift for BB. Very kind of them. ๐Ÿ˜Š

We then went to Baby Slings and Carrier to try on some carriers. BB got hungry while we were there so fed him halfway through. Then he pooped so Mr Toh changed his diaper. Tried on the Boba but the straps were kinda bulky and not comfortable for me. Manduca was not bad too but quite mafan to wear. We ended up with a emeibaby, very comfy for me and BB seems to like it too. Got it in turquoise for $299. Also bought the drool pads from Boba though I suspect I will source for cuter ones. Heh.

We then headed over to ๅง‘ๅง‘’s shop~ Had our lunch there but BB getting cranky having just woke up so Mr Toh helped to carry him while I finish up my lunch.
ๅง‘ไธˆ then sent us to Ah Gong’s house and BB was hungry already so was making noise in the car. Mr Toh fasterly made his milk for him while I had to pump. BB started crying badly, turns out he pooped and his butt butt all red…so poor thing! Mr Toh changed his diapers again and he pooped again. T.T Kept crying too cause I think he was too warm. Managed to calm him down a bit and we headed to Dad’s place. Dad’s room got aircon! So comfy and BB fell asleep after having his milk. ้˜ฟๅงจ specially came home early from work so she can see BB, so sweet of her. Dad sent us home and she came along and carried him in her arms all the way. Awww… see BB, your ahma loves you~ He also earned some angbao money as they all gave him a red packet saying it’s his first time visiting them. I didn’t know that. Next time must remember in case.

17 Jan
BB woke for milk at 4 plus but vomitted quite a bit of milk out, suspect is the new bottles giving him too much air. Hais. Maybe changing back to Dr Brown. He didn’t sleep after that, so we put him on the bed and he was making these cooing sounds, like playing with us or trying to speak. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
Brought BB out on my own to Dad’s place! Celebrating ้˜ฟๅงจ’s birthday~ Used the Moby Wrap he seems to like so much. Fell asleep while waiting for the LRT. Heh. So adorable. MRT very noisy though but he didn’t wake. Woke up when reached Dad’s place and sweating abit as the wrap is quite warm.

19 Jan
While feeding him his milk, I noticed his hand at my back will start to grab onto my shirt. Super cute lah~ But his feeding very erratic…. keep drinking a bit each time then stop then a short while later wanna drink again. *faints*
Lots of cooing noises, super cute, like he wanna talk.

20 Jan
Fed BB early this morning at around 5am plus but he didn’t finish his milk again. Mr Toh came in and I told him about it. He then proceeded to lecture BB who’s lying on our bed. What happened next makes me think that he really understood his father.
BB was looking at me at first as I was pumping. When Mr Toh started lecturing him, he glanced sideways at him and then averted his eyes. After that, he wouldn’t even look at me! And his face just looks guilty lah. Lol!

Having my bfast of lactation cookie and milk when I turn to check on BB who’s napping beside me. His eyes were open and he was just lying there. So cute.
Then the next moment I turn to look at him, he’s fast asleep. So fast! ๐Ÿ˜‚

BB’s stroller newborn parts were delivered today! Amazon UK damn efficient! Assembled it myself with the Youtube video for guidance. ๐Ÿ‘

Went to Waterway Point with Mr Toh for lunch. We chose to eat at Fish & Co, service sucks. I waited more than 30mins for my seafood platter and the food was cold! Zzz. We then headed to SLS to change the Starhub DLink router, then bought butter chicken back for dinner. Standard drop liao, not as nice as before. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

23 Jan
Was supposed to be doing my hair at Focus today with sis but she has decided to save $ and I also thought of doing the same. Maybe get a haircut at the salon behind my house and DIY hair dye. Told Mr Toh about it and he said I should go ahead with Focus and he will sponsor cause… got good news! Wa seh~ so sweet of him. Haha. Decided to go together with him next week~
Met him at Waterway Point after his work to buy fruits. NTUC damn crowded at 10pm plus. Zzz. Bought BurgerUp for supper too. Their fish burger is nice! Fried mushrooms not nice though.

Didn’t manage to blog before I popped unexpectedly at week 38! BB wasn’t due till 16 Dec but he decided to come out on 08 Dec. Lol..

Typed the below entry on Monday and I popped on Tuesday!

Week 38
Wow. Today’s my last week of work. It just dawned on me today while on the bus. Last gynae appointment with Dr Chua on Wed and it’s just waiting for the right time now.

Met the ladies on 28 Nov for brunch at Cafe Melba and board games at Mind Cafe! Food was pretty good.

Jia brought us pressies! Love love~

Random photoshoot cause Char thought the building looks nice.

Board games time! Condition of some of the board games were quite poor though.

4th Dec – Friday
Attended the last lesson at Mt Alvernia today alone as Mr Toh was working. Besides, the lesson today’s on breastfeeding and I thought it wasn’t that vital for him to attend. Very useful lesson and I really liked the speaker, was this slim Indian lady who spoke very concisely and you could tell she knew what she’s talking about.[/quote]

Sent this picture to Mr Toh with the caption “My boob fell out!” Childish I know but so funny. Hahaha.
He replied, “Omg, why didn’t you tell me it’s fake before marriage?!” HAHAHAHHAA. Too late! =P

So anyway, I went to work as usual on the 8 of December and started feeling these mild contractions during lunch. It persisted the whole day but I thought it was a false alarm as it was really mild and I wasn’t due for another week.

Cabbed over to Dad’s house to meet Mr Toh who was off on that day. Contractions were still quite mild but I called Dr Chua to ask just in case. She did advise to go to the hospital to be on the safe side. I decided to wait some more. So we went for dinner, me timing the contractions all the while. Just as we were finishing dinner, I realised the contractions were getting nearer to the 5 minutes mark and more painful. O.O

We went back to Dad’s house and he sent us home to get the hospital bag and I took a shower too. By the time we reached Mt A, my contractions were soooo painful! Went in to the A&E department and they wheeled me up to the delivery ward in a wheelchair.
First thing, nurse asked me to weigh myself, 63 kgs. Went in to the delivery room and got changed. Noticed it was 10pm.
Nurse checked and said I was already dilated 5cm. Wow! Was given an enema, 1st experience. Feels quite shiok, lol.

Contractions getting stronger but still bearable. Mr Toh said the score was up to 9 plus and he asked the nurse how painful will it get to and the nurse said 10 so he thought it’d be ok. Nurse said I was doing very well.

Mr Toh then went down to do the admin stuff while I laid on the bed. Contractions started getting worse and worse. Mr Toh took a long time, he later said the admin staff quite slow. By the time he came back, I was in such pain that I was gripping the bed rails and half screaming. He said he got a shock at how the pain progressed because I was fine when he went down. Sometimes the contraction seemed manageable then the next contraction will feel like it’s splitting me apart. The laughing gas did not help one bit, it only made me woozy and nauseous. =(

At around 12am plus, the pain was so bad I was considering epidural. But I changed my mind twice. Mr Toh said he teared upon seeing me in such pain, he’s never seen me like this before. The nurse came in to check on me and said I was already 9cm dilated! Wow, those squats I did everyday really helped!

So they called Dr Chua and started preparing for labour. But when Dr Chua came, she said BB wasn’t low enough and some more his face was facing up, this sunny side up baby. So she said we’ll need some time to see if BB will turn. I realised I couldn’t take the pain anymore so I opted for epidural in the end. Dr Chua also recommended that as I wasn’t able to relax enough for BB to try turning. The anaesthetist came in about half an hour, damn fast but that’s half an hour of excruciating pain. When she came in, she asked Mr Toh to wait outside. I vaguely heard her saying something but it didn’t register. I only remember the nurses telling me to lie on my side and stay still. Didn’t even feel the needle going in and within seconds, no pain! Mr Toh said he was outside less than 5 minutes. He heard her say “You give me 1 minute don’t move, I give you one hour no pain.” And the relief was huge when it didn’t hurt anymore. Mr Toh was standing beside me all these while until he saw that I was no longer in pain and falling asleep did he sit down on the chair beside me.

I managed to sleep for 2 hours and Dr Chua came back at around 3 am to check. But BB was still facing up and still not low enough. So she got one of the nurse to guide me in pushing, she gave me an hour to push. I was trying my best but because of the epidural, I couldn’t feel anything and definitely not know if I’m pushing correctly or not. But the nurse was very encouraging and somehow towards the end of the 1 hour, I started to get the feel of it to push correctly. Dr Chua came back and said BB was a bit lower but still not turned but we were going ahead anyway!

She got 2 nurses to assist me, they stood beside me and pushed BB down from outside my tummy. After 2 pushes, Dr Chua said I’m on my own so I pushed when she said push and after 2 pushes, BB was out!

The moment they laid him on my chest, I started to cry. Just felt so overwhelmed and happy and thankful that everything was OK. Dr Chua then got Mr Toh to cut the umbilical cord. They then took BB to clean up, he was crying the whole time, loud and clear! He got his first shot after that and he didn’t cry! So brave my baby boy.

While they cleaned him up, Dr Chua did her thang, delivered the placenta and sewed me up. Apparently, I was in very bad shape down there. Luckily I couldn’t see or feel a thing.

After BB was cleaned up, they brought him to me for skin to skin. It was love at first (or second) sight. I thought to myself, how cute he is and he’s mine! The feeling of joy is indescribable.

After a while, they placed him back in the cot and wheeled us up to the ward. BB went to the nursery while I went into the room to rest. Total labour took about 6 hours which was quite fast, better than expected.

We are ever so grateful to Dr Chua, I believe if not for her, I’d have underwent C-section already. She was damn calm and steady in the labour ward, so different from her usual smiley self during our checkups at her clinic. Heh. I even recommended her to Christina who’s getting married this April~

All in all, it was a very pleasant experience for my first birth at Mount Alvernia. Many many thanks to the wonderful team at the labour ward!
