Loved or Dreaded Big 'C'?

For my last pregnancy, I clearly remembered I dreaded the big C... so why did I not enjoy it? The biggest problem was CL herself... gave me so much problems and headaches...

Thank God this round no CL! Just lots of confinement goodies already prepared as of today... my mum will be around this time to help me, so alleluia!

Checked:
-Confinement catering
-Herbs/rice wine etc for daily use for 30 days

Hopefully, with my mum around, I will be able to fully recuperate with lots of R & R... am planning to fully bf baby no.2 so of course I will still be a moo moo cow 24/7. Still remembered I was on my sofa bf Jayden most of the time during the first few months! Bf on demand is like that... was like a slave to Jayden......... :p Hardly had the time to do anything else... Can't imagine I am gonna go through this cycle again... God bless me!

Ok talking about confinement preparations, my aunt and my mum got around to getting all these stuffs for me from Ching Yen, a shop specialising in confinement stuffs, shop is in Klang. They are so professional these days... have so many packages for you to choose from and will specially pack for you everything individually for the 30 days.. hassle free...



you can check out their website for more info: www.chingyen.my


Herbs for herbal bath



Herbs for red dates drink, to be drunk daily..



Enzyme vinegar and rice wine


Herbs packed individually... labelled day 1 and so on


These are 30 packets for 30 days


I found this box really cute... apparently this is to be taken for shrinking of the womb


Little grenades???


Inside of the 'grenade' are little small balls, reminds me of the poh chai yi pills we take for tummy upset


My fridge is now dominated with these herbs! Had to rearrange my fridge to place all these packets of herbs inside. They mentioned herbs with dates inside has to be kept in the fridge.

So with all these preparations lined up.... am I ready????????

At 38 weeks now.... counting down!

23 friends spoke up!:
