Week 29 PregnancyTuesday, December 02, 2014
The first week of the third trimester does feel markedly different; the onslaught of body aches, breathlessness and finding certain food smells unbearable once again. It's still a breeze compared to my first trimester though so I'm crossing my fingers it stays this way till labour! I'm officially 10kg heavier than my pre-pregnancy weight now O.O This is by far the heaviest I've ever been in my whole life lol. Didn't think I'd go any heavier than 10 for this pregnancy, but at the rate I'm going, I'd probably end up gaining a few more kilos over the next few months.
I've been spending more time packing and organising the room as well :) We decided to keep baby in our room for the first year until our new place is ready. In the meantime, I'd have to move a bunch of stuff over to our spare room (my grandparent's old room) that we initially wanted to use as a nursery. Decided to keep this old room intact just in case my grandparents ever want it back, and since we'll be moving out in a year or so there's no point spending money on renovating a temporary space. Our new helper is also on the way here! We're all really excited, especially my current helper haha. Soon she'll have a companion to share the workload with her and she can help me more with the baby :)
More baby things arrived in the mail this week as well!
Here's my favourite dress purchase so far ♥︎
I do kinda regret not waiting till Black Friday Sale to get it though, it's like less than USD$10 now?!
If you're interested you can get it here
Stocked up on some animal hooded towels too! This is rated #1 on Amazon because it's really big and soft :) To be honest, it feels more comfortable on my skin than the pricier one I bought earlier.
Am just gonna stick to these next time ♥︎
Get it here
And some toys for my baby girl :) Okay maybe I'm moving a little too fast by stocking up on toys this early (guilty "kiasu" parent), but I read that it's really good to have some developmental toys for your baby to start meddling with at a young age. I've already started to play the tunes from the musical box for her through my belly sometimes hehe, and whenever one particular song comes up (Twinkle, twinkle little star) she starts moving about more! So I guess that will be her favourite song for awhile ♥︎
Am also really happy to receive some gifts from Toni&Guy this week, aren't these mini versions so adorable? It's a travel kit comprising of 7 miniature versions of their top selling hair products! They're also holding a giveaway on their instagram right now, contest details below :)
"We're also currently running a campaign called "Spot the Minis" and will be giving away two sets of Bali trips for two every other week from
"Spot the Minis" at @toniandguyhmw_sg on Instagram and stand a chance to win a Bali holiday!"
This pretty much sums up my week29 musings; #hellothirdtrimester
