Freebies galore!

Good news! Lil Watermelon is engaged as at 37 wks 5 days!!! WOOHOO! Have forgotten to ask the gynae is it's in the posterior or Anterior position. Am hoping that it'd be the latter. It's a wonderful and relieving news however, at the same time, it being only Day 2 of my rest day, I'm really hoping the lil one will allow mommy to rest a little more before deciding to make her appearance! I sooo need to sleep!!!

Have been running loads of last minute errands and making sure things are in place. Confinement stuff have been settled. Namely:
  1. Herbs (30 packets compliments from the MIL!! WOOHOO!! i can bathe everyday if i like!)
  2. Klorane Dry shampoo
  3. Pads pads and more pads!! (apparently one can bleed anything from 5 days to 2 mths after giving birth!)
  4. Disposable gloves (in case i need to touch water during the first month)
  5. Liquid disinfectant (hygiene is still important even though we aren't allowed to touch water. A myth which I choose to abide....don't wish for those aches and pains to haunt me in future!)
The hospital bag has been packed. More or less I guess...though somehow there's still a slight unsettled feeling. Mommy matters settled, now for baby. Below are some freebies to share:

You may call me a cheapo but having a kid is no joke at all, especially when the mommy herself is high-maintenance. Thank goodness for the host of resources! On an entirely separate note, empress dowager has informed that she'd be going on tour to JB on Nov 6 which is supposedly my EDD and the hubs has pre-empted me that he needs to travel from Nov 14-15. Talk about having pre-post-natal blues!!! I really hope and pray that all will go well and it's not wishful thinking that everything's gonna be a breeze.
