I am Mrs Toh

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
Lol.

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.

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˜„

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.

1st April
TGIF! BB woke for milk before I left for work, then he didn’t want to sleep. So I got to play with him! Yay! His smile just melted my heart and made my day! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
Went to Sixty6 for dinner with Daphne, Vivien and Kelvin. Had their $89 jumbo lobster ramen tom yum soup, portion was huge, we couldn’t finish it but it was yummy~ Then we adjourned to Mr Bean cafe for drinks (me) and beer (them).
I left at around 10pm plus while they continued. Thanks to Kelvin for treating~

2nd April
ๆ‰ซๅข“ for Daddy at Mandai in the morning. Weather was unbearably hot! Mr Toh was working and asked why I didn’t bring BB, I said it was too smoky, turns out he thought we went to San Qing temple i/o Mandai.
Went home and ordered KFC for lunch because it was too hot to go anywhere.

3rd April
ๆ‰ซๅข“ for Mr Toh’s mummy at ๅ…‰ๆ˜Žๅฑฑ. We brought BB along in his stroller. Met WS & HM at ๅง‘ๅง‘’s shop to buy stuff for praying and ended up staying there for quite a while before we headed to ๅ…‰ๆ˜Žๅฑฑ.
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.
When I reached home after work, BB was sleeping on the mattress in the living room. With his eyes half open. I thought he was faking sleep. So cute but still. Tsk. Just like the dad. I wonder if there’s any way to correct it.
We then headed to Punggol end for dinner at ็™ฝ White Beehoon after he woke up. Not nice one… ๐Ÿ˜ž

Went home early to meet the AIA agent to discuss BB’s insurance.

22nd April
BB has learnt of his feet’s existence! When he woke in the middle of the night, he’s starting to grab his feet. Both his feet. So funny. When he woke at 3 plus, Mr Toh went to check on him and changed his diaper then I took over to make him sleep. But he was having none of it, kept talking and playing instead. Haiyo. Until 4:30, he had his milk and then fell asleep.
Woke again at 6 plus but I moved him to my bed and he laid there and slept till 8:30am.

23rd April
Booked tickets for The Bodyguard but we ended up missing it. Because we were meeting Vicky and her bf at Changi Airport for a meal before they flew back to Taiwan. So…oops.

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!

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.

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!

On the train home now and butt damn pain sitting on the seat. ๐Ÿ˜ข
No thanks to yesterday’s lesson that over ran while I had to sit in the uncomfortable chair. Pelvic damn pain after the lesson.

Week 37 Bumpfie!

25 Nov
Dr Chua appointment day! Took the bus from my workplace to Gleneagles and waited for Mr Toh at the clinic. Poor thing not feeling well but still wanted to accompany me. Thankful. ๐Ÿ˜‡

BB still growing well~~~ 2.9kgs now! Wow! And I gained about 2kgs as well. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ 62.2kgs now. Never been so heavy before. ๐Ÿ˜จ

Recently discovered a lump in my armpit and got really worried so I asked Dr Chua and yes, again, it is normal. ๐Ÿ˜ง Cause of the excess breast tissue. *sigh* Sure hope everything will return to normal after BB is out.
Also did a vaginal swab for some bacteria test, just got the phone call earlier today and it was negative~ Means no need eat antibiotics. Yay~

Submitted the pre admission form and also was given the medicines for after birth. Quite a few different medicines….shit, kinda forgot the instructions for it. Hope Mr Toh remember. ๐Ÿ˜…

I then brought Mr Toh to try Ramen Bari Uma at Tanglin Shopping Centre after seeing good reviews on edmw. ^^

Set lunch menu.

Nori-Uma for him.

Ajitama-Uma for me.

Gyozas~

Though we prefer miso soup base, I find the shoyu base soup here thick and flavourful, really nice. Apparently their soup base is tonkotsu shoyu. No wonder so thick~
Noodles were springy too. The char siew was great, super yummy! Tamago was also nicely cooked and runny, just the way I like it. Gyoza was ok, normal, nothing special.

Service was good, very polite.

Overall, we were quite pleased with the ramen here, had a satisfying meal. Happy to find another nice ramen place!

We then went to UOB to close my account, as we realised I don’t actually need it. Withdrew the money and we headed to OCBC at Orchard Gateway to deposit it into our joint account~

Walked over to Paragon and bought a pair of pink Birkenstock Madrid for me~ Yay! Loving the pink color. They’re so comfy now though I forgot how my feet will hurt for the first few days.

We then went Metro to shop and bought a set of bedsheets and mattress protector for CNY~ Realised we only have 2 sets and they’re getting too old le.
Cabbed home after that and had dinner at home for a change. ๐Ÿ˜Š
Same thing, watched Empress Ki with Mr Toh and had a Daim ice cream. ๐Ÿฆ

YUM!

26 Nov
Selfie!

Having labour class today! Took an hour time off and Mr Toh cabbed over to fetch me before we headed to Mt Alvernia.

Lesson was ok, just that the lady lecturing was way too lor soh. Very very very long winded and says a lot of unnecessary stuff. Zzzzzzz. Whole thing only ended at almost 9:30pm and we haven’t had dinner plus we have work tomorrow! ๐Ÿ˜ค Sit until butt damn pain.
Too bad no feedback form for this lesson, I’d have written lots of stuff. Tsk.

We then cabbed over to Central @ Clarke Quay as Mr Toh wanted to eat Santouka but they were closed by the time we got there. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
Walked over to Clarke Quay and I wanted to try Hai Di Lao. We had to wait though even though it was like 10pm plus.

At the waiting area, they changed my chair for me as they said the stool was not stable enough. Bo wei gong…service is tip top. ๐Ÿ‘

Tidbits & fruits while waiting~ quite yummy.

Waited for about 15 mins I think? Quite fast actually.

Upon sitting down at our table, they gave me this apron thingy, saying it’s for blocking radiation. Looked around and no one else has it, only for preggies I think. Seriously?! They even think of this?

Then they put this backrest at my chair, again, only preggy me have it, really quite comfy. Service jin ho!!! Their actions very fast, it was on my chair before I realised what was going on.

They gave me a ziplock bag for my phone cause I left it on the table, then they gave us each one piece of a wipe for either our phone or specs I think. Very thoughtful.

Black pork, chicken and pork ball was yummy~

Excellent service, average food. Maybe will go back if feeling rich and wanna be pampered. ๐Ÿ˜

28 Nov
Met the girls for brunch~ last meetup before I pop!

Cafe Melba. It was at this really inaccessible place inside a school or something. Luckily we had Gary who drove. ^^ Pictures courtesy of Char & Chris~

I had the full breakfast, it was not bad luh. The veggie rosti were yums!

Pretty collage done by Chris~

Jia bought pressies for us! So sweet! Mini speaker for phones. ^^

After brunch, we went to this shop at Geylang to see see look look @ Xmas trees.

Loved this one! Kinda traditional.

Char saw this pretty walkway and so photo taking time~ Haha.

As it was still early, we went to Mind cafe, we were there for almost 4 hours? Had so much fun~~ Love you gals sooo much!! ^^

Char left after that while the rest of us headed to Sunshine Plaza for wanton noodles! YUMMEH~~~ Gary sent us home after that, so nice of him. Thank you!

29 Nov
Woke up late, went for lunch at ๅง‘ๅง‘’s shop area, got a pillow, blanket and bedsheets for the helper and then ๅง‘ไธˆ drove us to Hougang Green to fetch the helper and then sent us home. Seriously really very thankful for ๅง‘ๅง‘ and ๅง‘ไธˆ. ๐Ÿ˜

Because our house very messy, so straightaway we had the helper to clean up. Also taught her where we put the cleaning stuffs. Quite kelian hor. =X

Asked if she can cook, she said simple Chinese food so we wanted to bring her out for dinner as well as grocery shopping so she can cook tomorrow but she was having a headache so we left her at home with mum.

End up Mr Toh and me just went to the coffeeshop nearby for zi char dinner. ^^
We went to stock up on bread and biscuits for home so at least she have something to snack on.

Hope she is good lah. *fingers crossed*

Weather has been super good the past weekend! Loving the cool weather and hazeless days~

Having dark pigmentation on my armpits recently. Sad. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Hope it goes away after giving birth!

Feet starting to swell again, notice it only swells during weekdays. Weekends they’d be fine! Cannot fit into any of my old shoes so am surviving on my slippers and sandals. Hope my feet size goes back to normal too!

Tummy also itching like crazy since Sat, asked Mr Toh to help me double check my tummy and he said got rashes too. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Called up the clinic and they said can apply calamine lotion so I asked Mr Toh to help me buy and he fast hand fast leg bought it. Love him so much! ๐Ÿ˜˜

I realised the rash feels so much better already after applying it for 2 days and restraining myself from rubbing. Mr Toh said heat from my hands make it worse, maybe he’s right. Anyway, yay!!

I also realised I lost my debit card when I got home on Tuesday. Apparently I left it at the top up machine after topping up my ezlink card. ๐Ÿ˜’
First time this ever happened to me, so can i blame it on my pregnancy brain? ๐Ÿ˜‚

Called up the bank to check for any recent transactions and also to block it temporarily while I try to find it.

Told Mr Toh about it yesterday and he laughed at me. He then gave me back my atm card for the time being as we hold each other’s atm card and our own debit cards. Hee. Thanks Laogong~

Went to the control station just now to ask and yes, my card was really there! Yay again!! Thankful to the person who turned it in instead of throwing it away or something. Weeee~~ But then still have to replace as they are concerned someone might have copied down my card details and can use it in the future. Wow. I didn’t even think of that. Hmm.

Met Mr Toh at Nex after my work yesterday. Fish soup for me again. XD Yummy~ Mr Toh didn’t eat as he already ate shortly before meeting me.

We collected his altered pants and headed to Grandpa’s house to visit him. Glad to see that he’s much better now.

Left at 10pm to meet Andrew and Gerald for supper at Rivervale Plaza McDonald’s. Fat fat me. ๐Ÿ˜› We stayed chatting till 12am plus and Gerald gave us a lift home again. So nice of him. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Gonna be having a maternity shoot on next Monday morning and then appointment with Dr Chua later in the afternoon. Hehe. BB, we’re gonna be seeing you soon lo~~~ He’s hiccuping away right at this moment as I type this. Lol. Such a funny feeling. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tuesday’s also Mr Toh’s off! Yay! He’s gonna be collecting BB’s cot from his cousin with the help of Dad.

01 May Friday
Met Mr Toh at his workplace after his work as we were going to his colleague’s new house for a small gathering. Had yummy steamboat and her new place was really very pretty. There was even a sky garden area for the residents to chill.

02/05 Saturday
Woke up early to pray then slept till 3pm after Mr Toh left for work. Stayed home the whole day~
Got very restless so decided to go to Punggol Plaza to buy flowers for tomorrow’s praying. Like that we won’t need to carry too many things when we go buy fruits.
I bought salmon, milk, yoghurt and asparagus too for tomorrow’s lunch~
Met Mr Toh after his work and we also bought a few snacks and had bak chor mee for supper.

03 May Sunday
Housework day~ Mr Toh told me yesterday not to drink too much cold drinks as it’s not good for the baby, constitution will be weak. But I do keep feeling like drinking cold drinks so I just steal sips from Mr Toh and told him it’s not me. He said yah, he know, almost all preggy mums will like cold drinks.

Warmed up my chocolate milk for breakfast today using the double boil method. Not bad, lucky still quite nice. Then I had yoghurt for snack after lunch and asked Mr Toh if yoghurt also need to make hot? That big bully said yes! =( So kua zhang meh! Lol.

07 May Thursday
Went to Dad’s house after I went home to change first and tabao-ed dinner for myself as Mr Toh was still working.
Because there were some unhappy issues at home, we had decided to tell Dad about my pregnancy, kind of to cheer him up. He smiled really widely and congratulated us. ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope it will take his mind off things, really too many rubbish happening at home.
He kept reminding me to take care of myself, then Mr Toh told him not to worry, that I’ve been really tired but I know to take care of myself, that’s why nowadays I am already sleeping when Mr Toh came home after work.
I also told him that was why I bought dinner for myself first as usually I will wait for Mr Toh, hehe.
He told Mr Toh not to go overseas but Mr Toh told him 2nd trimester stable, can go overseas. So we went ahead to book our Bangkok and Taiwan trip for July! Yay~~ Can’t wait! But also a bit worried about what I can or cannot eat.

09 May Saturday
Had dinner at Nakhon for Mother’s Day this year. Food was served veryyyyyy late, an hour late cause this Kate Pang and Andie Chen tabao-ed damn a lot.

We also helped Mr Toh tabao as he was working and he came to collect the food from us while we were still waiting for my brother who was an hour and a half late.
Seriously. Zzz.

Yummy olive fried rice

But food was still pretty yummy, except their honey chicken & green curry which had changed for the worse.

10 May Sunday
Mr Toh’s birthday today! Just nice he wasn’t working today. Woke him up at 12plus because I was hungry. Bo bian.

Brought in his birthday cake to suprise him while he was getting dressed. Hehe. Durian cake from Emicakes this year, yummy!

We headed to PS for lunch and decided to eat at Hoshino’s. Service damn slow but their egg mayo sandwich was surprisingly yummy! Dessert was so-so. We then headed to Cathay Cine to watch Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2.
Hmmmm not very nice, I didn’t remember Paul Blart being so annoying.

We then went to Nex to watch Helios. Nice! Action packed and a nice twist at the end.
We then headed to Dad’s house for pizza and Mr Toh got another cake~

11 May Monday
Met Mr Toh and his colleagues after work and we headed to Horne Road for their dinner and my supper. Food was good and affordable! Thanks to his colleague for recommending.
They had this signature dish, fried fish with chili which was very nice! We also ordered you tiao, fried kailan, sweet & sour pork. Everything else we ordered was nice too.

13 May Wednesday
On leave today!
We went for my follow up appt with Dr Yeap and we were also seeing Dr Joycelyn Wong too, still shopping around for a gynae that we like.

We heard Peanut Toh’s heartbeat today! Last appointment did not manage to hear as Dr Sim said still too early. Dr Yeap’s machine very high tech, can see very clearly!
She told us the machine was new, no wonder. Peanut’s heartbeat was very fast! About 180 BPM, like so kan cheong, haha. Mr Toh said kan cheong because we were looking at him/her. She seems motherly. She asked if I was having nausea, when I said yes, she said “Very good. Means baby is developing well.” T.T Ok lor, for your sake, Peanut Toh, I don’t mind the nausea.

We then took a bus to Lavender for bak chor mee! Mr Toh’s craving, I wonder who’s preggy, me or him? Lol. We saw Daniel & his gf while queuing, such a coincidence! Had lunch together and they headed to ICA while we headed back to Thomson.

We still had time before Dr Wong’s appointment so Mr Toh went to a TCM clinic to see his jaw which was hurting. Then we headed to Thomson to wait for our appointment which wasn’t very long because they had an earlier slot that opened up.
WWhile waiting, a promoter from Nestle approached and gave me a goodie bag. There was a small can of milk powder inside. Just nice I wanted to try it before I buy a full size can.
Dr Wong was very nice, friendly and answered all my questions, was also very chatty. Though I suspect she’s chatty because her consultation fee was for 15 mins, every 10 mins after that was chargeable. Didn’t really like that but what choice do we have?

I don’t have a good impression of her clinic though, receptionists weren’t very friendly, and nobody ever picks up her phone line. I had to leave a message before they call me back when making the 1st appointment.

We headed home for a nap before going out for dinner. Wanted to eat the hokkien mee at Simon Road before waffles at Ice Edge cafe but they had closed down. *sad*
We ended up eating at Ice Edge cafe anyway. Had their vongole and it was not bad, very generous with the clams. Mr Toh’s pork chop was delicious too. And the waffles were awesome! Love their Ferrero Rocher ice cream!

19 May Tuesday
Mr Toh didn’t sleep the whole night as he was coughing really badly. The poor thing. He decided to go see a doctor so we went to Kadaloor and had breakfast together. He stayed to wait for the clinic to open while I headed to work.

21 May Thursday
I’m on half day today~ having an appointment with Dr Irene Chua at Gleneagles.

Met Mr Toh at Orchard, we walked to Lucky Plaza and had lunch at Jollibee. Their spaghetti was surprisingly yummy! Chicken was tender but tasteless.

Dr Irene Chua gave us a very good impression when she came out of her room to call her patients personally, she was also very pretty and had a certain ๆฐ”่ดจ about her, Mr Toh said she reminded him of ๅง‘ๅง‘.
She was also very nice, friendly and seemed very patient and answered all my stupid questions.
When consultation was over, she stood up as we left her room and I thought that was very polite and sincere.
So, we decided to stick with her. Her clinic’s receptionists were very friendly too and they always answer their phones when I called a few times to ask about consultation fees and what medicine I can take for flu. Lucky me, because I had almost decided not to see her as I didn’t really want to waste $ and almost wanted to stay with Dr Jocelyn Wong.

We then headed to Shaw Lido for movie and caught Spy. Damn funny! Had dinner at Itacho before that and then dessert at Honeymoon Desserts. Yums. Mr Toh always feeds me until I’m super full. =X

25 May Monday
Mr Toh’s off day~ I wasn’t feeling well, having the flu so we had porridge at A-One Nex. Two porridge and a dish of salted egg fried fish plus 2 drinks came up to S$61. Damn expensive! Not going back anymore.
We then watched Tomorrowland. Ehhh, the storyline felt incomplete somehow though the settings were quite cool. But somehow we just didn’t like the movie very much.

26 May Tuesday
Reached home, had my dinner and KO-ed. Mr Toh came home with medicine for me, yay~ Woke up the next day feeling much better.

28 May
Felt like vomiting before I left the house and started dry heaving. Omg. Ate some sour plums and it calmed my stomach before I dared to leave home. This has never happened before…scary. T_T

29 May Friday
Was on leave today but had to wake early to go to Thomson for the Oscars test.

We cabbed to Upper Thomson for roti prata at The Prata House but their crispy prata not crispy enough. Mutton curry wasn’t very nice too. Butter prata was quite yummy though.
We then took the a direct bus to Thomson and managed to be on time, quite a feat for us. :X
After registering, still had to wait quite long. After the scan was done, I then had to wait again for taking blood which, luckily had a much shorter waiting time.
The scan took really long, so many things to measure.

I almost forgot that this was going to be my 1st time taking blood. T.T
I was getting so nervous while waiting for my turn. But Mr Toh figured the person should be really pro because she does this all day long, everyday, for adults and kids.

Turns out to be true because it didn’t really hurt that much though I did warn her this was my 1st time. I didn’t even know what to do with the stress ball she gave me. Didn’t even wanna look until it was all over in 1 minute. Whew~

We then headed over to ๅง‘ๅง‘’s shop as it was time to tell her. Dad had already told her but we wanted to tell her ourselves too. ๐Ÿ™‚ She was so happy too and kept asking us to go eat, scared I hungry. Awww~ Mr Toh also took the chance to order praying stuffs for Vesak Day. We then went home and napped before waking up and going for zi char dinner at Kadaloor with Mum. Their signature tofu was really yummy.

30 May Saturday
Mr Toh was off today too! Wee~

We woke up early and headed to Kovan hawker centre, Mr Toh brought me to try this yummy wanton mee run by 3 aunties. Long queue but so yummy! The sauce and char siew is nice~ Mr Toh tabao-ed for his colleagues too.

We then bought fruits and more praying stuff for Vesak Day and headed home. After resting for a while, we headed back to ๅง‘ๅง‘’s shop area to collect the stuffs Mr Toh ordered. Then headed home again to nap.

Was thinking where to go for dinner when Mr Toh’s friends jio-ed us for movie. Gerald came to pick us up~ so nice of him~
San Andreas was awesome, very exciting movie! While the guys were having their smoke break after the show, Mr Toh broke the news to them while explaining why I had to stand so far away. ๐Ÿ™‚
We decided to go for supper and had a hard time thinking what to eat and they kept asking me. I was like…”I have no cravings yet so you guys decide pls.”
We ended up at 511 Bedok Hawker but was too late to try the yummy ไบ”้ฆ™ and kuey chap though. *sad* Still, we managed to order a lot of food. Was a fun night, been a while since we’ve done this.

19 June Friday
Met Mr Toh at Somerset after work for Minions!
Didn’t manage to get a good seat at Nex when booking tickets so Mr Toh booked for Cathay Cineleisure instead. I had dinner at Sudouku before that.
Mr Toh just watched as he already ate while running his errand. We were finding something to eat after the movie when we stumbled on the Gundam exhibition at Ngee Ann City. But it was closed so we decided to come again tomorrow.

20 June Saturday
Mr Toh’s weekend off~
I wanted to eat dim sum at Crystal Jade since we were heading to Ngee Ann City and Mr Toh indulged me, thank you. : )

Discovered their durian pudding was really good too with real durian flesh! Yums!
Then it was time for the Gundam exhibition, Mr Toh was really tempted by 1 of the perfect grade models but it was sold out. He ended up buying the master grade instead. Can’t wait for him to fix it.

We then headed to Grandpa’s house for a while before heading over to Dad’s house. Had durians again at Grandpa’s house that was given by a neighbor, damn nice from Malaysia.

21 June Sunday
It was Fathers’ Day today. Told Mr Toh while he was preparing for work and he said “่ฟ™ๆ ท๏ผŒๅซไป–่ทŸๆˆ‘่ฏด Happy Father’s Day”. Replied him, “Yeesh, baby only how many months in my tummy want father’s day greeting already, so demanding.” LOL.

22 June Monday
Mr Toh’s off again, so shiok. Went to dad’s house again after my work to settle something.

25 June Thursday
Mr Toh had class today morning so we had dinner together at Chinatown Point Mcdonald’s before I went off for work. Been so long since we’ve had breakfast together. ^^

Met him after work at Seletar Mall for Terminator! Pretty good show. Enjoyed ourselves. ๐Ÿ™‚

28 June Sunday
Mr Toh’s off day~ let him sleep until 2pm as he was tired and I had food because Mom had cooked something. Hehe.
Also took the chance to finish up my housework.

Oh yes, perks of being pregnant. =) Very thankful to ahyi who bought the bird’s nest for me.

We slowly got ready to go out and headed to have lunch then went to find ๅง‘ๅง‘~
Ended up staying there for quite a while until they were closing so she jio-ed us for dinner. We had dinner at Ice Edge cafe, food this time was so so but their waffles were still awesome.

29 June Monday
We had durians in the office today! This customer of Eric’s always brings us awesome yummy durians from his relative’s plantation in Malaysia. So rich and creamy.

30 June Tuesday
Sis bought durian today!! So sinful! Didn’t dare to eat too much. Overdosing on durians.

So far, I’ve only vomited twice but kept feeling nauseated. Thankfully, that feeling is getting lesser.

Regretfully, I’ve also realised I cannot tahan cooked salmon!!! T_T~~~ Had it a few times and I couldn’t even finish them. This baby of ours…really resembles Mr Toh in this aspect. Hahaha.
