Will you look at that ticker above! I’m 20 weeks pregnant already!! Whoa… halfway through in a blink of an eye!

It feels like only yesterday that I was constantly complaining about morning sickness, and yet these days, I feel absolutely wonderful!! Apart from the feeling a bit mengah every now and then, I LOVE BEING PREGNANT *grin* My little Dot is one super active baby as midday comes, I can constantly feel Dot turning and kicking around in my belly all the way through till evening.

On Monday, the husband and I went for my monthly check up and Alhamdulillah everything is fine. Dot was being hyper-active as usual, so much so that the 4D screen could not capture Dot’s face as it came out all blurry due to Dot’s constant movement. At one point, we could see Dot playing with one of his/her feet and pulling it up to suck on the toes (which got the doctor going “eee!! Jangan isap jari kaki!!” hahahahah!!). Super cute!

Oh yes, if you notice, still referring to Dot as his/her as my doctor still couldn’t make out Dot’s gender. Dot kept turning here and there and we couldn’t get a clear view, so I’ve been told by the doctor to hold on on colour themes and stick to neutrals for the time being. So no pink or blue shopping just yet (dang! Heheheh)!

I’m so excited!! Baby stuff are just SOOOOO cute!!!

Which reminds me, I’d like to ask the opinions of the experienced Doodle mommies (and daddies) out there, when should I start buying the baby stuff? And dear God please tell me what I need to purchase first!! The husband and I went around browsing baby shops and departments (to get an idea on budget) and I must say that I was pretty much overwhelmed by the amount of things we have to buy.

Baby stuffs are so expensive!!!!

So now I’m on the hunt for bargains and discounts and warehouse sales but also planning on when I should start purchasing the items. Tips and advice are very much welcomed!

  2. Hee hee – love that you call baby dot! I called my boy boingy while he was growing inside!I ‘m sure you will make a great mum too! Congratulations hun! If you change your mind about dot http://www.bounty.com/babynames/ where you can search names by meaning and origin. My little boy is called Marlow and he is just perfect (although a very hungry and greedy little scamp – hence me being pretty tired). Its all worth it though. Fingers are crossed everything goes well for you xx

  7. dear, i ikot apa my fwen ckp.. if u're confident enough that it's time to start buying the baby's stuffs.. then go ahead! don't stop urself.. 😉

    i started to buy my baby's stuffs rasanya towards the end of march.. time tu i 22 Weeks+ kot?? alaa.. around ur time nih la.. tp i beli sket2.. beli merepek2 jer.. hihihi! and my advise, better u kumpul all the baby checklists that u can get from the baby stores and online, compile it into 1 yang u & husband rasa perlu nak beli.. then baru start survey survey surveyyy for the price of the items inside ur baby checklist.. then baru start beli!! 🙂

    btw, i love some online baby stores.. u can get cheaper items kekadang! esp kat mybbstore! go searchhh.. 😉

    p.s. some online stores (with real shops) include http://www.mybbstore.com, http://www.babyjaya.com, http://www.twinsbaby.net & there's lots more!! happy shopping!! 😀
