My Mia, my world!

So this is how it feels to be a mum, words aren't really enough to describe it. Since we're all different, you'll have to go through it yourself to find out. In my case, the day my baby Mia was born was the happiest day of my life.

I had to go through an emergency c section due to complications. It was a tough labour, I struggled-- the pain of strong contractions was excruciating that I've been given 3 different pain killers in separate times to block the pain. In the end, although I was very hesitant, after more than 24 hours of labour (altogether my labour took 33 hours) and some complications, the doctors have finally convinced me to have an emergency c section. By that time, I was frustrated, tired, miserable and most of all frightful of the risks involved with a c section not just to me but also to my baby. Ofcourse, I didn't feel any pain during the surgery but I certainly felt the tugging, it was as if I was a frog being dissected and cut open! At that moment I didn't even want to start thinking about my recovery and how will my weak little body cope. All these worries flooded my thoughts whilst the surgery was taking place. Suddenly, I heard a little cry! She's here! My child is finally born..

My surprise Baby Shower at Marriott Hotel!

Baby shower is a means to celebrate the upcoming birth of a baby, by showering the expectant mother with gifts. It sounds fun but it never came to my mind to throw a baby shower since I was more focused on organizing my baby's first month bday banquet. However, I feel blessed to have a bunch of crazy but thoughtful girls, who has taken a time out from their busy schedules just to sneakily organize a surprise baby shower for me at Marriott Hotel. I was absolutely clueless about this baby shower and was soo overwhelmed by their efforts to make this day special.

They have showered me with baby gifts, arranged a table full of yummy snacks,

Sea Cruise in Cyprus at the 28th week of my pregnancy

Who says that pregnant women can't fully enjoy a sunny holiday? Although I must admit that there were times were the heat in Cyprus was unbearable. Yes I did get swollen feet and was breathless most of the time but hey that didn't stop me from making the most of this holiday.

We started our holiday by getting picked up by a limo cab in Cyprus which was cool since it's not everyday that I get driven around in a limo. Perhaps the next time will be on my wedding day..

My very first baby haul!

I am very excited to be blogging about my very first baby haul!

Like most mums I coulldn't wait to go shopping and buy my little princess the prettiest little floral dresses, baby pink coloured sleep suits, cute little dolly shoes and many more-- the other half of these baby items are hand-me-downs from relatives which are just as pretty. I am proud to say that at this stage, me and my soon to be hubby have now sorted out our little girl's very first wardrobe-- well I'm sure she should have enough clothes for the first 3 months. The rest of her wardrobe as she grows will be purchased one at a time.  Also me and my hubby can't wait to build a pretty little pink nursery for her but that'll have to wait until she's born-- yes, I won't forget to post photos and videos!
