Weekend Chismis and SM 3-Day Sale

Last Saturday, we went to The Medical City (SM City Manila) for my 6th month OB-Gyn visit and papsmear. I lugged my Tita (who also Skye’s carer) and our babies – Skye and Sappy. I also took that opportunity to have my other “medical concerns” checked, like this crappy shoulder and back pains I’ve been having for the past 6 months and my nasty wrist pain. Ganun ata talaga pag Nanay na. I always take myself for granted.
Anyway, after seeing a rehab doctor, I was told that every issue I have is “normal” for new mums like me. But still, I am under therapy to address the muscle and joint pains I have. So mums, it is important to take care of yourself as well. I know it’s so difficult. Ako kasi, even if I am suffering from that back pain, pag ginusto ni Skye ng hele, hele! Tiis tiis na lang pag may time. And pinagpapabukas ko yung mga check ups ko. Wag ganun! You should always take care of yourself so you could take care of the baby properly. Like right now, I have extra energy after my first therapy session. I felt better already. Sana nga maging super okay na. Ilang buwan ko na tong tinitiis eh.
And so my OB-Gyn sched was around 11am, but the rehab doctor arrived at around 6PM. Tagal! The doctor’s sched is actually 4PM pero lagi daw yun late. Bakit kaya ganun ang mga doctors no? Always late. They’d give you sched but would make you wait for hours! Public and private, walang pinagkaiba.
Anyway, to kill time we had lunch at Shakey’s…

It was a payday, 3-day sale weekend so the mall was packed to the brim! We’re glad to find an available seat at Shakey’s. Our little boy Sappy is a major ball of energy. Ka-kulet!! But Skye enjoyed his presence so much. They we’re playing the entire time and the little girl was laughing like crazy. Btw, just in case you’re wondering, the baby is actually lying beside me. Everytime we dine out and we don’t have the stroller with us, we always look for couch seats para the baby can sleep while we eat.
As mentioned, it was a 3-day sale weekend and we have a couple of hours to kill as we wait for my next doctor’s appointment…kaya eto ang damage!
P1060458
Shopping for the baby!! We got new headbands and socks – both are on sale for Php 100.00 per pack. That cute top is on 50% off. We also got the busha pants for 20% off. I told you that I am a WAIS mum. So I always get Skye’s clothes on sale only. I never bought her clothes that are not on sale. So I really took this opportunity to buy her clothes. Anyway, it’s time for a wardrobe change coz she’s already too big on most of her clothes. (The one’s out atleast, coz I have a stash of too big clothes here. It’s a bag full of gifts and hand me downs.)

We also got these 2 on 50% off. Ang saya saya! Mila is very excited. She had the clothes washed right away. Susuot na daw ni baby agad agad. Excited lang?! Sabagay, we got the ones that fit her just right. We never buy too big clothes on the baby. Panget kasi. :-S So usually, we make her wear the clothes na agad. Hehehehe!
And if you noticed, we finally gave in and got ourselves a baby carrier! Hahahaha! My wake up call was when the ReigningTatay asked me to carry the baby because his arms are already aching. Hindi na makatagal si Tatay sa pagbubuhat sa bagets! So ayun! We got a baby carrier right away, thank heavens that the ReigningPrincess finally found the carrier that she liked. More about baby wearing on a different post though.
So there! Our weekend was fun. Our pockets lighter but our hearts are definitely fuller. And the ReigningPrincess enjoyed much.
I am keeping our malling to every other week now. Not na every week. So this weekend, we’ll just stay at home and play the entire day. Kasi nasa linggo de peligro na ang atm ni Nanay.

Cute finds! I'm itching to shop for new toddler clothes tuloy. By the way, I also have had joint pains (arthritis levels!) ever since I gave birth, so I think it's normal. It could also be the side effect of breastfeeding in my case. :-)

M said...

Aww cute buys, love the florals!

Cym Marzan said...

The clothes with flowers are so adorable! The wrist pain I had when I was pregnant with my firstborn, it was carpal tunnel syndrome, I don't know if it's the same with yours. Sobrang sakit and I had to wear a wrist brace. Hopefully mawala after giving birth, kasi surgery would be needed if lumala.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

me too. breastfeeding din ang cause. they call it mummy thumb daw. yung akin kasi super painful na. di ko na matiis! so I am on PT right now for 2 weeks.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Thanks!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

I have Mummy Thumb daw. Not CTS. But I am on PT now to fix it.

I love the baby clothes. I miss having a baby.

M said...

wow, great buys, pretty dress!

Que Sullano - Gavan said...

Good finds! Our lives were saved by baby carriers until almost 2years old ata. Now at times, nagpapakarga pa din. Nasanay naka attach!

Pam / Hey, Miss Adventures! said...

Great finds! I don't really do much shopping for the baby. Most of the clothes she still uses were from a garage sale when I was still pregnant and also an online "ukay" find. As for her "going out" clothes, all of them were given during the baby shower, baptism and birthday! Hehe. It's true talaga, you need to stay away from the malls - we do our groceries once a month lang! Haha Then again, when you have a credit/debit card and you're mostly online...hay naku temptation is everywhere!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Sarap nga ng may baby sa bahay! :)

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Thanks! Kaso wala naman dress dyan. Hahahahahha!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Really?! All this time kasi we thought we could just make do of the stroller. But there are times talaga that she wanted to be carried. And that carrier already saved us (especially my back) over the weekend. It was definitely a great buy.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Oo dapat stay out of the mall sobra! Nakakahirap. Anyway, most of my baby's clothes are gifts and hand me downs also. And I only buy her clothes if its on sale. Sayang naman kasi. Ang bilis nila kalakihan ang mga damit. You know ba an online ukay? Share naman! I've been looking for one.

Michi said...

I can relate with doctors time kaya ayaw ko nagpapacheck-up. But I think because of the travel time, pansin ko kasi sa schedule nila. morning sked sa isang hospital tapos travel naman sa isang hospital para sa afternoon sked.

Pehpot Pineda said...

nakkkuuu! I hae going to SM, laging butas bulsa!!! bukas andun na naman ako.. pray for meeee! Eh like you, I have a princess din, why is SM Kids Fashion Collections so affordable nowadays?

Rona Cuera-O said...

ooh i love the clothes wais na mommy :)

The Clueless Mom said...

When I was pregnant with Ethan I also suffered from back pain, though tiniis ko lang kasi I thought it was normal and that I just had to endure it. I didn't know there were options like therapy sessions.

I didn't do much clothes shopping for Ethan, pano kasi the lolo and lola do all the shopping sa sobrang tuwa nila sa kanya. First grandchild kasi. :)

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Oo nga eh. Pero sana lagay nalang ng allowance. Ok lng sana kung OB kunwari at may nanganak na patient diba? kaso yung iba tlgang lagi lang late.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Kaya nga eh! Tapos sale pa! Wala na talaga. Butas bulsa na talaga.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Thanks!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Meron therapy! And masarap sya. Sana nga mawala na ang mga sakit sakit nato!

Mommy Jen said...

I love shopping baby clothes in SM talaga specially if they're on sale no?! Lalo na kapag baby girl, naku kaliwa't kanan ang magagandang stuffs. I had a baby boy so mostly mga shirts and ternos lang ang binibili ko. Hehehe. =)

Joy Astilla said...

Wow buti you braved the sale! Dami tao lagi sa SM pag sale and it's difficult to walk around the mall pag madaming tao lalo na you're preggy.

Ze Warriom Mom said...

I love SM sales!! Pero mas love ko ang Landmark actually because their price is nearly pang-Divi na. But of course, more options sa SM pa din. :)

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Yep! Kaloka pag baby girl!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

No choice! Andun na din eh and we have to wait for the rehab doctor. And I am no longer preggy sis! 6 months na si baby. My OBGyn visit is for the papsmear and follow up lang since CS ako.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Alam mo, I really wanna try Landmark! Oo nga ang mura and mas madami daw options. One of these days I might visit landmark nga!

Patricia Cuyugan said...

Diba it's always so exciting looking for stuff for baby? My kid is big already, but up to now I get excited whenever I get to go shopping for him.
