I don’t know about other mummy out there, but I turn into a cleaning freak once I enter my third trimester. It happened when I was pregnant with Noah, and now it is happening again this time around too!
Expert calls it the “nesting instinct”.. but I just call it the cleaning freak phase.
I can’t seemed to stop… I need everything to be tidy… and trust me it is not easy when you have a 3-year old running around the house causing chaotic mess!
Besides being a cleaning freak, I also started to become a planning freak too… I kid you not when I say that I have already started planning the unborn baby’s aqiqah… Yeah.. I have googled some webpages to get some ideas on what kind of door gifts people give out nowdays… I even stumbled upon few party planning sites, which got me started to plan Noah’s birthday party too! Teruk tak?
I am now in my 34th week of pregnancy… 5+ weeks to go. Doctor had issued a strict order for me to rest as the baby is already in its birthing position and is engaged. But my mind is going crazy thinking about things that I have yet to buy/get before the baby’s arrival.
Luckily I have finished reading the Hypnobirthing: The Mongan Method book for the 2nd time around. InsyaAllah I am ready to give birth to the baby naturally, with the assistance of my obgyn of course. After attending the Hypnobirthing class 3 years ago, I am a firm believer of this method.
I have also managed to service my ever-so-reliable madela freestyle breastpump last week. Alhamdulillah… I bought the 2nd hand breastpump from a dear friend who had used the pump for her 2 kids… and now I will continue to use it for my 2nd baby… I have managed to use it for over 1 year for Noah and am determined to fully breastfeed this baby too, InsyaAllah…
I have managed to book for a post-natal package from the Tanamera Spa. I have heard good reviews about the place and service. They will come over to the house and use their products for the massage. Went to get a pre-natal massage few weeks back and I am hooked! Memang sedap ok! And I also managed to buy their best seller Cold Press Virgin Coconut Oil that can help ease the labor process and avoid any tearing.
I also have my trusted Premium Beautiful corset waiting for me after delivery to get me back in shape. I can’t wait! I have gained almost 13 kgs over the past 8 months and I will need to shed the fats and regain my pre-pregnancy weight fast!
This time around, I do not have to worry about boiling or sterilising all the baby bottles and teats. Now, I have my very own Biozone Food Purifier that can ease the sterilising process! All I need to do it just to purify a bowl of water and just wash all the bottles and teats with the purified water… SIMPLE and EASY! I am really satisfied this “super gadget” can help me ensure clean and safe food for my family and clean bottles and teats for my baby too! Read more on Biozone Food Purifier here.
