It is supposed to be this tough? 2:12 AM
Lyanne is almost 6 weeks old. It has been the toughest 6 weeks ever since I had velle. Aside from the sleep deprivation, I seemed to be stuck on the sofa nursing constantly. I literally can't do anything at all, and it is frustrating for me.
Somehow I feel like I'm doing something wrong. Shouldn't baby have a fix feeding schedule? Why is she feeding so often, could my milk be insufficient for her? So many doubt and hubby thinks I'm paranoid.
I hope all these will pass soon, I mean since I already hang on for 6 weeks, what's 6 more weeks right? :/
Yesterday I suddenly felt moody when I saw the sky turning dark. I was so moody to the point I was crying before velle went to bed. Hubby will be on night shift today, I guess it will be another moody night for me.

Hardwork! 3:57 AM
Little Lyanne is almost 4 weeks old now. And taking care of a newborn is as difficult as I've remembered! My goodness..
Many times I've asked myself why do I even want a 2nd baby and torture myself. I know it's the sleep deprived brain talking haha!
But I feel rather accomplished this time as I've manage to bfeed Lyanne for almost 4 weeks! That's something I didn't get to do with velle (I expressed for 1.5months). Lyanne was very patient with me and a sucks very well, we've been to a lactation office twice to work on latching and clogged breasts.
Short term plan is to bfeed for a month and extending on a month at a time! It is tough and I never imagine that we could do it.

37 weeks 3 days 9:55 PM
Am I close?
Had one of the worst nights ever. Having very frequent & painful braxton hicks that woke me up in the middle of the night. Everytime i tried to go back to sleep the pain comes back. Then I started to have muscle aches on both my arms and hands, to the point wearing a ring is a discomfort. My body is so screwed up right now. I think it's time for baby quek to come now.

A scare 11:17 AM
Gave everyone a scare when I had to head down to TMC today.
Last night before bedtime, my vision became a little blurry & I started having a flash spot( as if someone took your picture with a flash) on both my eyes. Panic a little when the spot became bigger but didn't want to alarm anyone since it was already 12mn. And for the whole night I keep having pains at the lower right abdomen which I'm not sure why. End up I keep going to the bathroom to help with the pain.
So today I had a nagging feeling that I should call my gynae to check (just in case), and he was suspecting I am having preeclamsia. Long story short, he wanted me go down TMC asap to check out the fetal heart rate plus my blood pressure. I tried to ask for a Monday check up as I do not have a history of high blood pressure but he said things to scare me into going in. -.-
SOS my sis to pick velle from her enrichment class and quickly cab down to TMC. The first nurse quickly brushed me away and I actually waited 1 whole hour near the lift when i should be in the observation ward! But end of the day, it was just a false alarm. I do have a few painless contraction but it is normal considering I'm 37 weeks now. Fetal heart rate is ranging from 145 to 155. My blood pressure is also normal. Phewww.
My mom was with me all along, and I was thinking if I had to deliver today it wouldn't be tt bad. At least I'm not alone lol. I am thankful for my family. And I'm glad it is just a false alarm this time. Thank God!

Taobao hauls #2 4:07 AM
This is my first time ordering bulky items from Taobao using OOPS as my forwarder.
You can google oops and on their web they have detailed guide on how to use their service.
And because this is my 2nd time ordering from Taobao ( first time i was just testing water using 4px),
I use their DIY Reship Service.
Basically, they give you a warehouse address in china, and you just ship your taobao items to
that address. It will be very confusing at first, but read it like 5 times and you will soon understand what
they mean. I have to thank ML for teaching me all these, couldn't order these without her help!
On 8 September, I ordered from 21 different stores from Taobao.
OOPS (CHINA) received them for me and packed them into 7 packages.
Total volume is 1.4 CBM & I paid $160 for the shipping fee back to Singapore.
Waiting time - 8 september to 29 september
Price I paid for the goods - $600 SGD
Price I paid for shipping (include tax) - $160
OOPS uses a delivery company call T-L freight, and i saw on their FB that someone was complaining
about this particular company. But no issues for me though!
They kindly asked where do i need this huge package to be, and place it gently in one of my bedrooms.
This is how OOPS repacked my smaller packages. Thumbs up!
Here are some of my buys!
Continue reading if you wish to spend more money on TB.. hahaha!
A small stool that hubby requested. It is for him to wear his boots.
I choose one that comes with storage. Might as well right?
Currently I have not thought of what to put in it yet.
New look at my front door!
I wanted the stool to be almost the size of my shoe cabinet so it wouldn't be protruding or anything.
Black rug on the left is also requested by hubby, and i freaking love it!
It is so soft and chio!
Cute birdy hooks for velle's room!
It's so cute I think it fits her room perfectly!
Velle didn't want me to put the hooks too high up just in case she couldn't reach it.
Not too sure what would i do if she grows taller next time… HMM
Matching birdy night light. I am sure you girls seen it a million times in the mall already haha!
But it was cheap on Taobao and she needed a night light.
SO CUTE! $6.50 sgd for 40. I couldn't not buy them,
Er ice scoops. Because we needed one. Don't judge
If you follow my FB, you would rmb velle's coin bank broke!
New owl bank for her! She loves owl.
Tiered drawer for her clips. Its cute right?!
Drawer liners. I am very into lining my cupboards.
Her little vanity area all set up!
Yes, i bought a strawberry couch.
ITS CUTE RIGHT?!
I can't shift things around now, but we will be rearranging her room soon.
Making it even cozier (I HOPE)
Book shelf. Velle love her books a lot.
Gonna set up a little reading corner for her, and that is when the little couch comes in.
* can you imagine how cute it will be?! *
Black trays for my rice cooker, and i also got another one for my flask.
Don't ask me why, i just feel like doing it….
For my rice. Something brown to blend in the kitchen
This area looks a little crazy now, gonna repack it when i can.
Because of the limited space in the living hall, we got a small coffee table to put at the side.
Just enough to put cups or snack.
Item arrive without any damages! In fact, they packed it really well!
My biggest purchase would be the sofa bed!
If you are a frequent shopper on Q10, you probably will find this familiar.
I paid about $150 SGD for this, and it came in 4 layers of packaging, which is pretty amazing!
All nicely set up by my Dad!
My Dad came down after work and fixed up many stuff for me.
I appreciate it so much!!!!
There are a few more packages unopened, but i gotta wait for hubby to be back before
we can work on it. Hubby, BE BACK SOOONNN, how come the time seem to pass so slowly…
