REVIEW: 9th Maternity & Children Expo, 27-29 March 2015 at Mid Valley Exhibition Centre

1 comments
Awal pagi tadi dah terpacak di Midvalley nak shopping barang-barang baby and abang baby.


Pagi bagi saya, pagi lagi mereka ini sampai dan menunggu depan entrance ....


Sampai kat sana dalam pukul 9.45 (since kata start pukul 10) tapi entah pukul berapa la diorang ni sampai. Syabas!


Exhibition details


Nak lagi details boleh pergi ke website atau facebook event ni atau facebook page maternity and children expo.


List of exhibitor

Maybe kedai-kedai online ada yang tidak ada dalam list ni. So sebenarnya lebih banyak la exhibitor yang participate event ni.


Kebanyakkan maybe almost all products memang murah dan ada diskaun berbanding harga biasa. So worth to go! Especially kalau nak beli diapers, kebanyakkan brand ada and having  promotion. Take note, sila expect Q  yang panjang kalau nak beli Petpet, Drypers, Mamypoko. Tadi saya beli Diapex, tak perlu Q.

Kalini tak banyak pun shopping barang. Sedikit barang newborn seperti baju. Brand yang ada tadi Pureen and Tollyjoy, sepasang baju RM12-RM13. Time ni lah menyesal tak beli baju masa Pureen warehouse sale, RM6 je sepasang. Grrrrrrrrr!


Selain tu, beli barut. Tak ingat nama kedai tapi salah satu tu sebaris dengan booth Spectra. Kedai ni dia jual RM5 sehelai kalau beli 5 helai. Dan perlulah beli dalam kiraan 5, 10, 15 .... kalau 7 helai, yang lagi 2 kira harga normal. Ceit.

Dan lagi satu kedai jual RM7 sehelai, beli 5 free 2. Still sehelai RM5. Ini dari kedai Mydreams Concept.



Ada jenis tali atau strap. I prefer tali sebab kebiasaannya baby saya keluar awal, saiz kecil so kalau tali mudah nak adjust size.


Alright, itu sahaja report untuk kali ini. Pesanan penaja adalah, silalah bawak trolley, luggage atau ada jugak yang ambil trolley dari Aeon hehehe.. Tapi fikir2 kan lah nak bawak trolley Aeon tu sebab kat dalam nanti laluan tak berapa nak beso, dapat pulak lalu kat tepi booth diapers yang mana orang beratur panjang mungkin akan menyebabkan kesesakan lalu lintas.





HAVE FUN SHOPPING!!!!

Antenatal Checkup at 15w

0 comments
Yesterday we went for a regular antenatal checkup. This time, macam excited sikit.. To confirm what we have seen during the last checkup. Amir and Umar pun ikut, basically I want them to meet their Atok gynae.

From Kuala Pilah we shoot to HUKM. Yang paling best, it was my birthday yesterday  and special treatment for me was became their driver.

Ketiga-tiga mereka tidur. Ceit.

So, alhamdulillah baby looks normal and healthy. He's measured at 15w4d. (It's a he???) Oh, yes. Insha allah

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha


And this is the supplement Prof suggested for me to take.


This supplement is all in one; DHA, multivitamins and mineral. For details click here. According to Prof, this supplement has just been introduced couple of years ago. Before this Prof selalunya prescribe Obimin plus or di hospital lain mungkin prescribe Neurogain.


A little bit history on my current pregnancy;

My LMP was on 4th Dec.

  • At my 7 weeks, I went for an ultrasound and the baby is measured at 5w. 2 weeks off. Juga ada brown spots masa early pregnancy made me so nervous. Click here for more.
  • Repeat ultrasound after 3 weeks to see if the baby is or not growing. Alhamdulillah, everything was normal. Baby is then measured at 8w, walaupun tak tally dengan pregnancy age tapi tally dengan first measurement.
  • 2 mggu lepas tu start checkup di UKMSC, sepatutnya mggu ke-12 pregnancy, baby is measured at 10w, tally dengan measurement sebelumnya. Alhamdulillah sekali lagi.
  • 4 minggu lepas pada tu (which is checkup on 23rd March), baby is measured 15w3d. Pregnancy week is 15w4d. Only 1 day different --> mommy adalah happy! So keep growing.. Amir dah sibuk tanya whether the baby is big enough to be delivered. Heuheuheu

Review: Pureen Warehouse Sale 2015

0 comments
First time sampai ke Pureen Warehouse Sale ni walaupun since dulu-dulu selalu nampak advertisement dan baca blog orang yang dah pernah pergi, barulah harini dapata experience ke sale si Pureen ni.

Kami (sekeluarga pergi because it's Saturday) sampai di area industrial park Glenmarie ni nearly 11am. Parking memang dah susah, ramai yang parking kat main road dan perlu berjalan jauh untuk masuk. Dan dah ramai juga dah berjaya beli barang, teruja tengok barang-barang yang diorang beli. Bila sampai di pintu masuk, ke kiri untuk pergi ke bahagian baju dan kanan untuk ke bahagian diapers, sabun etc.

Bear in mind sales ni adalah di perkarangan bangunan Summit Company dan mereka pasang khemah. Walaupun masa kami sampai dah ramai orang, gagah kan diri pergi 'cedok2' baju di lautan manusia itu.

Harga baju memang jauh lebih murah, ada yang RM2 per piece tapi kebanyakkan takde pair dah RM5 per set. Tapi yang set ni kemain susah nak jumpa. Jadi, selepas aktiviti mencedok baju, para pelanggan akan beramai-ramai duduk kat tepi hallway sambil menambahkan kesesakan untuk memilih baju2 yang dicedok. Rasanya adalah dalam sejam proses pilih dan finalysed and we're ready to pay! Then I came to realize yang laluan ke arah section baju tadi dah dipenuhi dengan orang beratur. Wow. Tak sampai 10 min beratur bawah khemah tu rasa nak pitam hahaha aduhai, serius tak boleh tahan. Bayangkanlah bawah khemah yang ada kipas jauhnya kemain. Maka I decided not to buy :(

Nak pergi ke section diapers pun tak sanggup sebab by 12pm Q adalah sangat panjang.


So, apa hasil belian adalah..

1. Shower gel for kids brand Tracia. Kat section Tracia je takde Q
3. Peel fresh Marigold and Vitagen yang dijual murah dekat lori luar dari kawasan sale.

One of the reasons I don't favor sales yang happening on weekend. Most of sales akan start hari Jumaat and i usually go on that day. Weekend crowds surely crazayyy!!! I think Pureen should consider to do it in a longer period. They have enough stuffs for everybody tapi in such a short period of time how many of us can enjoy the sales.

Post ni bukanlah untuk tidak encourage orang pergi kalau u dont have the fear, why not.. Barang memang murah hehe

Some tips:
Datanglah lebih awal dari start time, 9.30am.
Datang at least berdua, adult sahaja supaya sorang boleh pilih dan sorang lagi pergi q. And you'll have enough hands to carry the things.
And make sure tahap kesihatan adalah optimum hehe

So good luck!


The only photo I ada mood untuk capture.. Tengah q nak bayar, tapi dari lokasi saya berada, mungkin lagi 10 meter (atau lebih) baru sampai cashier.

Coping with Post-Natal Depression

0 comments
This is a freelance article by Helen Tarrant.

Women have a much higher lifetime risk of depression than men do, and a significant factor in this level of risk is the hormonal changes that occur during and after pregnancy. While post-natal depression—and depression in general—can run in families, there's no way to predict for sure whether a woman will develop the condition. Therefore it's good to be aware of what the signs and symptoms are, to make it easier to get help if it becomes necessary.

When the Baby Blues Turns into Something More

Many women experience mild and temporary depression symptoms after having a child. This condition is known as the baby blues, and it affects up to 80% of women who give birth. For most women, the symptoms are very mild, and last only a few days or a week. Women who experience the baby blues typically feel weepy, anxious, or irritable, and may also have mild mood swings. Of women who experience the baby blues, around 20% go on to develop a more severe form called post-natal depression.

Why do Women develop Depression After Giving Birth?

Women experience large and sometimes rapid changes in hormone levels during pregnancy and after giving birth to a child. In particular, levels of estrogen and progesterone increase to very high levels during pregnancy, but drop rapidly to pre-pregnancy levels in the few days immediately a woman gives birth. These changes in hormone levels are so quick that it takes time for the body to adjust, and it's thought that this period of adjustment is the reason why women develop the baby blues. In some cases, however, this mild and transient episode triggers a more serious and prolonged depression. When this happens it's referred to as post-natal depression, a condition that can linger for several weeks or months. Women are more likely to develop post-natal depression if they've had episodes of depression in the past, if other family members have been affected by depression, or if they've experienced other significant life events or problems during their pregnancy.

Signs of Post-Natal Depression

The signs of post-natal depression closely mimic those of other forms of depression, with symptoms including feelings of sadness, hopelessness, worthlessness, anxiety, guilt, and shame; changes in sleeping patterns such as insomnia; difficulty concentrating; and suicidal thoughts. Women who develop post-natal depression may also have trouble bonding with their baby, and this can contribute further to the problem.

Treatment for Post-Natal Depression

Around four-fifths of women experience the baby blues, and this mild form of depression is absolutely normal; however, if the symptoms lasts for longer than ten days or become more severe, a woman is at risk of developing post-natal depression. At this point, it's important to seek support and treatment to enable recovery.

Treatment for depression commonly includes therapy and medication; however, women who are breastfeeding have fewer options for anti-depressant medication due to the risk of the medications being secreted in breast milk. There are a few anti-depressants that are safe for breastfeeding women to take, so breastfeeding women do have some options.

Studies also show that women who breastfeed are less likely to develop post-natal depression, so if you are able to breastfeed it's good to do so. For this reason, doctors don't usually recommend women stop breastfeeding in order to take anti-depressant medication, unless the depression is extremely severe and doesn't respond to other forms of treatment. But remember, if you're not able to breastfeed for any reason, there's absolutely no need to feel guilty, or to worry that your baby's health might be negatively affected. There are definitely benefits to breastfeeding, but babies who are bottle-fed thrive just as well as those who are breastfed.

Support and Self Care

Just as there's no single “right” way to be a parent, there's no “right” way to recover from post-natal depression—it's different for everyone. Some women are able to get through it with family support and therapy, while other women need to take medication for a while. Throughout the depression and treatment, it's important to remember that post-natal depression is nobody's fault, and experiencing this illness doesn't make a woman a bad mother. This is a crucial part of self care, but it's also important to make sure that new parents get plenty of support and help from friends and family, and that a new mother is able to take time out for self care to help her get through those emotional first few days.
