Baby News!

I've been missing in action for almost a year and now I'm back because I know, I've missed a lot in blogging! Life's taking a toll on me and for the past year, me and husband were super duper busy with our life but we managed to sneak away for some repeat honeymoons. Haha.

To start off my comeback into the blogging world, I'd like to share this good news with my blogger friends. Yes, I am currently 4 months pregnant. I am easily exhausted now but extremely happy and thrilled with this blessing. We've been waiting for a year for this miracle and finally Allah has granted our wish. I cannot be more than thankful to Him. Alhamdulillah.

I knew I was pregnant from week 7. But it was so hard to contain the feeling and urge of telling everybody that I am expecting. Because of the old folks tale that it is assumed jinx to reveal our pregnancy before it reaches 3 months old, we have to hold the butterflies in our stomach and only tell our moms about it. That's it.

People also said it is jinx to buy baby clothes / items so early in our pregnancy so I hold on to that as well. Until my pregnancy is 4 months old then I started buying baby clothes and items bit by bit.

I know having a baby is costly, depending on how you want the preparation to be. It's the same with wedding. So now, I'm gonna write on about the best deals that I found while scouting for baby items. I'm still a budget-friendly mom to be as the same when I was planning my wedding a year ago. Oh how I missed that moment.

Friends and family advised me not to buy clothes for newborn in large quantity because they will grow out of them sooner than you expected. This is what I read from Google tips as well. But I stick to my list of newborn checklist (which can be found all over the internet, just Google it) and hope it can help first time mothers, like me. I'll put on the list on the next entry kays.

I cannot resist cute baby rompers so last Saturday, I went out with my family to survey for some bargains and have a look at baby clothes. But the temptation is high and I finally grab a few items for my collection.

Sleepwear from Mothercare The Curve. Rm83 after 30% discount. 

3 longsleeve bodysuits and 2 rompers from Debenhams. Rm120, these are on sale.

I bought these in size 0-3 months but still I think they're quite big for Asian babies. Good... so these will last longer than I thought. Hopefully. I know these are pricey but I love Mothercare because they have the softest cotton for baby clothes which I like the most! And I like fun prints and colors for baby clothes and so far, I can only find them at these stores. 

I bought my newborn clothes from online UK stores. I think I bought quite a heap. Will post a review about it later when I receive the parcel. Hopefully by this week because I used the UPS tracker and currenly, it just reached KLIA. I can only worry about the Customs tax now. Wuuuuu...

Till we meet again, soon. I promise!
