Preparing for Baby J#2

I'm already on my 35th week tomorrow. And in two weeks time, we will start to wait for Janysha Andrea a.k.a. Ysha's grand entrance to the outside world.

Since I'm on bedrest (how many times have I already told you about it hehehe!), Janna and her yaya usually help me on certain things like packing stuffs for Baby Ysha. I'm already done with her hospital bag. It's my hospital bag that I'm trying to prepare this time. I don't have button up blouses, and don't have the time to go to the mall after my OB will lift my house arrest. I might as well borrow some blouse from moms' ... anyway, mom has been a lifesaver for me on anything.

Janna has two cabinets ... we already taken out the clothes she doesn't wear anymore to make way on Ysha's clothes. And I let her yaya wash Janna's premmie clothes so I won't have to buy for her. Anyway, she'll only use it for only a month or two. I can say that I have a brilliant yaya, she soaked Janna's white clothes in bleach. When I saw it yesterday, they're as good like brand new. I'm sure Ysha would look good on those clothes.

Mom and Dad got Ysha some onesies from the US, sizes from 0-12 months. No need to buy it for her. I asked them if they could buy an electric breastpump just in case Ysha had problems on latching, I can pump milk for her. They bought an Avent electric breastpump (pricey daw yung Medela). Hay salamat! I hope I'll be successful on breastfeeding this time. That was one of my frustrations when I had Janna. I've got a dozen of receiving blankets (what the hell will I use that for?). Some are gifts from my tito and tita din naman. I got 4 premmie mittens which are very small talaga, I'm so sure hindi matatanggal sa kamay niya yun unlike the one's sold here in the Philippines. I don't think I saw sizes like that here kasi it's a bit small than the regular ones I saw at the mall.

Janna's baby crib has been washed and kept already, and also the stroller with baby carrier is also ready, all washed, dried and kept clean. The only thing that is still not yet prepared is our room ... we are trying to re-organize it again to make way for the crib. How the hell can we do that again? Siguro naman Jason won't have a hard time coz naka-wireless router naman na kami, and there's internet everywhere inside the house. We should be doing that anytime soon.

Another thing we aren't still not prepared for is how to handle Janna and Ysha at the same time without one of them feeling neglected or jealous. Jason and I are still not prepared for it pero we are all excited for the new baby. I'll shower both of them with all my love and care so that they won't feel deprived of the love we have for them.

May God help us.
