Kind bus driver

Just managed to get on bus 291 this morning cos the bus driver waited for me. I was standing near the door (couldn't see any seats on the bus). When the bus stopped at the next bus stop, the bus driver got up from his seat and said loudly in Mandarin "Xiao Jie, ni yao bu yao zuo xia lai. Zhe li hai you yi ge wei. Ni zan zai na bian, geng wei xian". There was a seat near the front of the bus but I missed it. And he was trying to get me to sit down. :)

Was quite embarrassed when everyone turned to look at who he was talking to. At first, I also turn around to look, not sure if he was talking to me. But I was the most obvious one. So, I mumbled ok and walked to the seat. When I got close, I noticed there was an auntie (50s - 60) also standing in front with no seat. Quite paiseh, but luckily saw another inner seat opposite. I gestured to her if she wants to sit down but she waved no. So I quickly sat down but don't know where to look, felt so shy.

Today, I was wearing a very big billowing "tent like" dress, maybe look more pregnant Yesterday, when I wore a plain white shirt, no one in the bus even offered me a seat. ;P

Stocking up BB's wardrobe

Went to Taka baby fair tonight. A lot of MTBs at the motherhood forum bought the steriliser there because there were a lot of freebies. Bought the Pigeon steriliser at $139.90, came with 2 free bottles, 1 free bottle warmer and 1 new born starter set (bottles, brushes, milk powder holder). Bought another 3 medium Avent bottles at $16.90, 3 small Avent bottles at $17.84, 1 BB receiving blanket at $10 and 2 rompers at $6. Good thing I went today, very quiet cos weekday night. BB's wardrobe is filling up liao. :)

Preparing the BB room

Woke up at 6:30am today because of backache. Sigh, thought I can sleep in since it's Sat. Had a nap at 9am and was woken by phone call by ikea delivery man. Bought a wardrobe on Wed so that I have a place to store BB's things, too many bags are accumulating on the spare room floor including things that colleagues passed me. Hee hee, another reason is because I need a wardrobe to hang my long dresses. Hee hee. Hubby said I'm trying to steal BB's wardrobe even before he/she's born. Happy, can go shopping for more BB stuff soon.

Guess BB's gender

Went to see gynae again cos curious of BB's gender. Gave baby a pep talk to open his or her legs during the checkup and BB very guai and cooperated. However, Gynae said blocked by umblical cord so not very clear. But tentatively, it may be a girl. But can't confirm until 12 Sept which is the detailed scan. Well, we'll see. :)

Went shopping at Parkway Parade today. Bought a new Nikon camera, Nikon S50 at Harvey Norman. My old nikon one is spoilt after just 2 years so can't take any photos. Bought extended warranty for 5 years, kiasu liao. Charles and Keith having a storewide sale. Bought 3 pairs of flat shoes, hopefully it will last for my whole pregnancy. Takashimaya having baby fair but I didn't go. Don't want to start buying baby stuff too early cos I got no space to store them. Also, they will only collect dust if I buy early. But BB is not left out lar. We already bought some clothes for BB during the John Little Moving Sale and also a very cute rocking horse for BB's first soft toy from SuperStar Virgo cruise from 8-10 Aug 2007.

Finally bought maternity clothes

Went shopping yesterday and bought my first maternity clothes from Spring Maternity at Century Square. :) Luckily, they had a 10% promotion for DBS Women's card holders. Bought 2 t-shirts which were on promotion, 1 turquoise green short sleeved stretch cotton top and 1 pair of black maternity pants. Everything costs about $157. Not cheap but still ok. Wow, really feel pregnant after trying on the clothes especially the turquoise green top which really showed off my tummy. I think I'll wear it to office tomorrow and break the news of my pregnancy since I've finally passed the first trimester. ;)

Saw BB's face

Went to see Dr Judy Wong today. Got the First Trimester Screening Report but since I already got the results via phone last week, it's no surprise. Gynae said I'm 14 weeks today so I've passed my 1st trimester! Yeah!!! Can announce my pregnancy liao. Actually, I bumped into a colleague at TPS. Didn't bother to lie this time.

I didn't gain much weight though. Gynae said I should catch up soon. She gave me multivitamin, calcium pills and I asked for fish oil supplement because I haven't been eating much fish in the last few months. Scared of the fishy smell.

Detailed scan scheduled for 12 Sept also the day when I'll know BB's gender. Gynae said the legs are closed today so can't tell gender yet. :)
