Do not talk in the kitchen

Being a mother of two, masa bersama MNI ialah semakin menyikit. Dia balik kerja around 630pm, then kitorang semua masuk tido around 1030pm. So ada 4 hours to spend quality time with the kids and hubby. (Aryan pun balik school sama dgn MNI).

So masa yang ada utk berbual-bual dan bercerita to each other about our days ialah during dinner time. Akan tetapi..

MNI & I : Borak borak yada..yada..yada...
Aryan : Mommy, deddi.. don't talk in the kitchen. Eat first. Please keep quiet.
MNI & I : Ok Aryan. (And both of us keep our mouths shut). Ahaha.

Fine. Memang lah sepatutnya tak elok bercakap-cakap masa makan kan. And Aryan has being trained at school that way. I know dia nak kata jgn cakap masa makan, tapi kat school eating area dia mmg kat kitchen. Dah kat rumah pun dia kata jgn bercakap kat kitchen. Ekekeke.

On the other hand, Khalif telah pun memontelkan diri dengan jayanya ! Barut dah tak muat. Semua baju newborn sempat pakai sekali je. What a waste aku beli punya bnyk baju newborn cecumel. Last-last kena recycle baju Abg Aryan sebab most of Khalif's baju dah sendat. Alhamdulillah dia membesar dengan sihat :)

Ni tangan Khalif ke Michelin ni ? Ekekke.

Nak start kerja lagi in about 2 weeks time. I wonder how am I going to leave this cutie pie. Sigh.

Berpantang kali kedua..

Memang super koboi ! 

Haih punyalah bertekad untuk berpantang dengan penuh berdisiplin, tapi semua ke laut. Idok le aku kata tak berpantang langsung, tapi compared dengan masa Aryan dulu, this time around dah tak dapek dah nak buat macam dolu-dolu.

In terms of set berpantang, kali ini saya menggunakan set B'hidan Tru Bellai. Ce tengok gambo sikit..


Consists of 7 items in a set. Kotak dia cantik kot thats why aku beli. Aagaga. Pastu I wanted to exclusive breastfeed Khalif kan, so takdelah niat nak makan jamu sangat. Dalam set ni pulak ada minuman gamat instead of jamu. So itu pun salah satu sebab aku beli jugak. Ada herbal drink jugak, but boleh minum selepas hari ke-20. Ada lah jadual penggunaan dan pemakanan setiap item tu. And manjakani juice tu, lepas hari ke-30 baru boleh minum. Pilis pun ada, scrub pun ada konon macam param lah function dia.

Pantang kali ni, aku balik Johor jugak. Plan nak dok Johor sebulan or 3 weeks, tapi lepas 2 weeks kami dah berangkut balik KL. Sebab Khalif keluar rashes agak teruk which attacked at his face only. Aku ni kan paranoid, nak jugak bawak gi jumpa paed. And taknak paed lain, nak Dr Anthony jugak. So suh MNI amik kami bawak balik KL. Lepas check nasib lah baik bukan eczema. Cuma heat rashes. Tak boleh panas. Khalif ni pulak pelik perangai, nak tido berkipas. Kalau psang econ dia takmo tido. Dah terbalik pulak dengan si abang tido mesti nak econ. Haih la anak..

Meh share cara pantang koboi aku.

Berurut
Amik urut 4 hari iaitu pada hari ke-6 sampai 9. Best Mak Eton tu urut. Urut, tungku, bengkungkan, pakaikan ubat segala, mandikan baby - cost RM60 sahaja sehari. Murah lah kan compared to harga kat KL. Blergh. Tapi disebabkan belum habes pantang aku dah balik KL, terpaksa la urut penutup pantang aku amik org kat KL. Terbaca blog Moon pasal Penjagaan Pantang Humaira, terus lah Kak Ton book laju-laju. Yang ini akan ada urut, sengkak, tangas kering dan jamu. Nanti dah lepas urut inshaAllah aku wat review oke.

Bertungku
Bertungku dgn cara lama pakai batu sungai. Mama ada la belikan tungku moden bagai, but aku tak berapa nak suka. Sebab tak berasa panas dia. Panas kejap je so tak puas. Batu sungai ni hamik panas berasap. Best. Sampai hari ni masih bertungku setiap pagi lepas mandi. InshaAllah buat sampai hari ke-40.

Bengkung
Still pakai sampai today. Mama kan dia dah buatkan aku bengkung panjang 15 meter lilit-lilit tu. Masa Aryan aku pakai bengkung traditional tu jugak tapi 10 meter je and aku disiplin pakia sampai 60 hari. Pergh this time 15 meter, kegilaan apekah. Dia punya panas and ketat ya Tuhan tak bernapas aku. Pastu mama yg melilit oun sampai pitam. So aku kata thats it. Aku pakai bengkung segera Atikah Beauty je. Dia bengkung 2 tali macam tali kasut. Sama konsep macam bengkung traditional tu. Maka sampai hari ni aku pakai Atikah Beauty tu. Kalau mama yg melilit boleh pitam, apetah aku nak lilit sendiri bila balik KL? Memang idok le..Mama dah pesan pakai bengkung sampai habes pantang. Baiklah...

Pilis
Pakai 4 hari je iaitu time berurut. Lepas tu entah ke mana bottle pilis tu entah. Pembaziran ye di situ sebab pilis tu dalam set B'hidan. Tak pakai, buat apa kau beli 1 set. Hampeh.

Param
In this case, scrub dalam set tu lah. Aku pakai sampai habes. Sebab mmg best. Bau pun wangi :) Dapatlah pakai utk 2 weeks scrub tu.

Stokin
Pakai 4 hari je. Lepas tu rimas la plak dalam rumah nak pakai stokin bagai. Dengan cuaca panas kering sekarang ni. InshaAllah tak masuk lah angin ikut kaki kot. Huhuhu.

Tangas
Memang takdelah buat dah. Cuma pakai Feminine Wash dalam set B'hidan. Tapi utk penutup pantang dalam pakej tu ada tangas kering. Aku pun tak sure amenda tu. Wait and see.

Pemakanan
Makan bnyk, minum air 3L sehari at least. Lantak le org nak kata dalam pantang takleh minum air bnyk lah ape lah.. yang penting aku cukup makan dan minum utk fully breastfeed Khalif. Aku bnyk makan ikan, sayur n buah. Ayam & telur still belum makan sebab takut rashes Khalif tu tak tahan benda gatal. Benda-benda yg tak gatal & sejuk semua aku balun makan. Ehehe. Alhamdulillah dah buat stok EBM Khalif utk bekalan di hari muka. Ecewah. Deep freezer pun dah di-on kembali, inshaAllah mudah mudahan adalah rezki Khalif utk menyusu sampai 2 tahun macam abangnya. Amin..

Kesimpulannya, pantang kali ini rumit sikit sebab kena focus kat Khalif and abg Aryan pun nak attention jugak. Tapi relax jugak sebab bibik ada and siapkan kerja-kerja rumah, laundry, mop lantai apa bagai. Bila pantang kat KL lebih relax sebab Aryan siang pegi skola, so aku boleh focus kat Khalif. kalau kat JB, Aryan kejap2 hilang pegi main kat luar lah, tantrun dtg tak bagi aku pegang Khalif lah and memacam lagi peel dia. So kalau ada rezki anak ketiga, I think Im gonna pantang kat rumah sendiri je. Huuuu.

Ok lah till then. Toodles.

Birth Story of Khalif Aryan


This is going to be a super-long entry.

Sunday 16 Feb 2014.
We got a visit from my adik ipar & his in-laws. He just got married 2 weeks ago and weekend tu, the couple buat KL tour to their relatives' places together with his MIL and FIL. I managed to prepare soto Johor with begedil daging lagi kau. Gigih kemain. Everything seemd to be like normal. Not even mild contractions or period-pain like of feeling.

Went to bed quite early because Aryan nak pegi school the next morning. And I had a check-up with Dr Idora. Thinking about the traffic from Wangsa Maju to KL, aku rela bangun bagi terpacak kat spital at 8am rather than getting stucked in the bad traffic.

At 11pm, I felt like perut memulas. It must be the feeling nak poo poo- that was what in my mind. Went to the toilet tapi taknak pulak poo poo so I just ignored the feelings and went to sleep. At about 1230am, terjaga sebab rasa perut memulas lagi. Tapi sakit memulas tu macam manja-manja je.. It must not be the contractions I said sebab tak sakit mana pun. I did not have any braxton hicks masa pregnantkan Aryan. Not even this time. So I did not know how the braxton hicks feel like.

The memulas perut feeling came quite regular that night. I was in all-four position most of the time. Susun bantal tinggi-tinggi atas katil and melekap kat bantal tu. Memang tak rasa sakit lah I could sleep macam biasa. At about 3am I was quite curious knapa that feeling tak hilang-hilang eh. So I started to time the contractions. No harm pun nak time kan. Kau just download je apps dia. Senang bebeno. Eh eh eh... Bila tgk the pattern, it was 5-6 minutes apart and lasted for about 1 minute. But I was still in denial. No, that must not be the real contractions. Firstly the feeling was manageble and secondly I was only at 37 weeks along the pregnancy. Takkan nak deliver kot kan. What ever lah I said, sambung tido, esok pagi jumpa Dr Idora boleh tanya dia ape kemenda nya ini.

Monday 17 Feb 2014
MNI insisted to not sending Aryan to school. Takut kalau aku kena tahan ward masa check-up nanti leceh dia kena amik Aryan from school. Lagipun badan Aryan dedar-dedar so we sent him to his old babysitter's place. Oh you know the traffic in KL on Monday morning could drive you nuts! It took us almost 1.5 hours from Wangsa Maju to Pantai Hospital KL. Madness! Dalam kereta MNI and I berborak like takde apa-apa berlaku. Sebab entah, aku tak rasa sgt pun the surges. Tapi sempat jugak jeling-jeling jam kat keta- mannn memang the surges dtg every 4-5 mins and lasted for about 1 min.

Sampai PHKL, I was the second patient. But unfortuntely Dr Idora got an emergency at the labour ward and masuk clinic lambat. MNI asked me to go direct to the labour ward but I refused. Sebab kang macam-macam plak dia nak check. Better jumpa Dr Idora dulu and get her advice. We got to see Dr Idora at 11 am. Before tu, I felt like vomiting kat waiting area.  Tapi berjaya tahan.Cuak jugak because muntah pun tanda yg baby is coming, Masa Aryan pun aku muntah few hour before delivered.

Masa scan scan maybe she could feel the surges. She asked me ada rasa any contractions ke and I told her lah about the memulas-mulas thingy. She asked for my permission to do a VE. I was ok since aku pun nak tau whether I was in labour or not sebenarnya. Lepas VE, she told me that I was 5cm dilated already and baby was fully engaged. Ya Allah, I was still in denial. Sebab it was so different compared to masa delivered Aryan ; at 4cm I lost my mind already, tarik besi katil, marah MNI, menjerit and whatnots. Dr Idora asked us to masuk labour room or balik rumah pack baju ke macam mana. Bag mmg dah ada dalam kereta, so I chose to masuk labour room. Kalau balik rumah, mmg agaknya bersalin dalam keretalah kekdahnya.But I told her nak masuk labour room after lunch and zuhur. She was ok.

12.00pm
PHKL adalah tpt yang bosan utk jalan-jalan ye. Tak macam kat Prince Court boleh jalan dari hujung ke hujung, luas etc. PHKL jalan 10 minit dah habes tawaf spital dah. At this time, I could feel the surges were more intense. Bila surges dtg, I had to stop walking and lean on the wall. Few times jugaklah staffs kat situ tanya nak wheel chair ke? But I said no, I memang tgh jejalan nak cepatkan labour. 

Sempat pegi starbucks kejap beli Java Chip Frapp. Tgh beratur and bayar pun, I tried to control the surges. I applied lah all the techniques that I learned during the hypno class. It helped me a lot. Bila ada surges yg terlalu intense tu, what I need was just lean on the wall je. Itu position yang i felt so comfortable. After dah dapt frapp, jalan-jalan lagi around the hospital. Pastu dah bosan, MNI kata jomla check-in labour room. At least I could be free nak buat apa-apa position which I felt more comfortable. Sebab hospital tu boring, aku pun agreed.

1.00pm
In the labour room, as usual macam-macam plak benda-benda admin yang nurses tanya. I told them about my birth plan as they did not get a copy of it. My file was still at the clinic. Fortunately I had extra copy in my handbag, so I passed to them. The nurse requested to do a CTG. I refused at first, but dia mulalah kata procedure biasa bla..bla..bla.. Sekejap je pun takpe she said. So I malas nak layan and agreed.


Masa ni MNI mmg sgt memainkan pernannya sebagai birth companion. He asked the nurse to dim the light, controlled the room temperature, korek sana sini setting the room etc. The nurse gave me freedom to tukar baju spital or birth using my own cloth on. Aku malaslah nak kotorkan baju sendiri kan, so tukar lah baju spital tu. Then rasa nak shi-shi. Went for a loo and there you go, mucus plug dah keluar. Hermm.. lps tu cam saikologi sgt, tetiba plak rasa surges sgt kuat. (maybe that was my mindset sebab mucus plug dah keluar). MNI plak masa tu keluar kejap pegi beli roti and amik telekung dalam kereta. Lps mucus plug keluar, aku muntah lagi skali. I knew baby really really want to come out already. 

I tried to find the most comfortable position. Apparently kneeling was the best. Ada stool dalam labour room tu, so I letak bantal on it, and turunkan selimut to alas my lutut. Masa ni masih whatssapp with my buddies cerita lah aku tgh in labour ni. Probably 6-7cm dilated already, aku agak je lah kan.


I was in this position most of the time

1.30pm
MNI masuk labour room bawak roti apa bagai. Memasuk carik aku, rupanya I was terselit tepi katil resting on the stool. He wiped my sweat, bagi minum air, bagi makan kurma etc. He also gave me the light torch massage. Owh sgt selesa seriously. Then at one point, rasa lenguh lah plak dok gitu, so I stood up and swayed, squat etc. Masih tak selesa. MNI hugged me, we cuddled. Oh man sgt selesa. It must be the love hormon oxytocin. Ngeehehe.


Cuddling really helped me to control every surge :)


He asked me nak naik katil tak. I did not want to lay on the bed. He asked me to be at kneeling position but on the bed. Dia cuak kot kalau baby keluar on the floor. Wakaka. So I naik katil and set myself to this position.

Kneeling On the bed


Naik katil tak sampai seminit, tetiba I felt a big poo came out. Man that was the air ketuban. Masa tu I knew baby was about to come out already as I could feel it. MNI called the nurse, tapi nurse lain yg dtg. Not the one that I passed my birth plan to earlier. She requested to do a VE but MNI refused. He asked the nurse to panggil Dr Idora sebab MNI pun tahu based on experience masa deliver Aryan, bila pecah ketuban je tak sampai seminit baby keluar. The nurse insisted to do a VE sebab dia kata kalau tak tau brapa cm dilated macam mana dia nak panggil dr. Gosh aku malas nak layan lagipun aku tak nampak muka nurse tu. I tried my best to control my breathing and focus on the delivery. The visualisation techniques really really helped! The nurse asked me to baring utk VE. Ok lah fine, baring kejap she did VE and 9cm dilated already. Baru dia terkedek panggil Dr Idora. Masa tu aku dah kembali ke kneeling position semula. 


2.00 pm
I made the humming sound. Sgt membantu my breathing and visualisation. Suddenly I felt the 'ring of fire' thingy and I just breath out the baby. I know the head was out but masa ni nurse yg kelam kabut tu entah apa yg dia buat aku tak tau. But for sure she was not down there until I told her the head was out. The other nurse yg ada my birth plan entered the room and she was the one yg sambut the baby. I breath out for the second time and I knew the shoulder was out. Lepas tu the rest baby slide out sendiri at 2.09PM.

The nurses asked me to turn and placed the baby on my chest. But oh before tu diorang ada buat suction kat baby tu jugak, but MNI kata no, its enough. They did not touch the baby after that. Let the vernix absorbed to the skin and baby was so alert. That was the best moment I tell you ! After tu baru Dr Idora dtg. MNI cut the cord after about 15 mins when the cord dah stop pulsating and turned white. Aku pun rasa sgt segar bugar, fully concious and dapat appreciate that moment to the fullest. . The placenta dah keluar dari rahim, so Dr Idora just tarik sikit je bagi dia keluar habes. I had minor tear, kena jahit sikit. After that we were left alone for bonding time for about 2.5 hours before being transferred to the maternity ward.

Syukur Alhamdulillah semuanya berjalan dengan lancar dan selamat. No drugs, only 2 VEs, no medical intervention, I felt very comfortable during labour and delivery, I was in control of my own body, and it was a wonderful birth experience :) A very gentle birth. Alhamdulillah.

Walaupun ada nurses at PHKL yang tak brapa nak follow our birth plan, but all in all I berpuas hati sebab almost all we requested diorang respect and follow. For instance we requested to delay cleaning the baby, delay vaccine etc, semuanya mereka follow.





Few tips :
1. Practise makes perfect ! Kena rajin practise breathing technique so you know which one to apply and when. Ini aku pun kurang practise so ada jugak time yang ke laut breathing aku tuh.
2. Visualize the birth that you want. I always visualise that I will give birth at on all-four position. And turned out to be true. And also I always always always visualise the rose bud, the blue ribbon, thinning and thickening of the servics, the baby path, the laluan J etc. All these really really helped me a lot !
3. Get enough drinks and food. Energy kena ada ok.
4. Husband kena tau their role as birth companion. And both of you must understand your birth plan. So senang lah nak protect apa yang u nak.
5. Trust your body ! It is designed to give birth naturally.
6. Of course doa bnyk-bnyk and tawakal kepadaNya selepas usaha dan doa.

Ok. perasaan lepas bersalin kali ini? Saya tidak trauma lagi and tak serik utk bersalin lagi. Alhamdulillah.

Happy birthing !

Day 7 - Baby botak & nama baby

Alhamdulillah, today is the 7th day baby kami melihat dunia. Dapatlah kitorang buT few perkara sunnah. Rambut dah dicukur botak oleh MNI sendiri and nama pun diberi pada baby :)

Introducing the second caliph in our family.

Khalif Aryan bin Mohd Nawawi.

Yang bermaksud a strong khalifah. Semoga menjadi anak yang soleh dan bakal menjadi pemimpin ummah di masa hadapan. Aminn.

So far confinement adalah masih manageble. Dah berurut 3 hari. Pergh sedap nya rasa sendi urat muscle segala. Berbunyik- bunyik mcm tulang patah time diurut. Ada lagi sehari urut,the nanti penutup after 40 days.

MNI pulak dah balik KL. This part is really hard for me. First sebab aku mmg rindu laki aku. Dah fragile hati tak sekuat dulu kalau berjauhan. Second, aku sampai menangis bila kena handle both Aryans. Abg Aryan still jeles dgn Khalif. Everytime breastfeed Aryan pun nak riba ngan aku. Bila tidokan Khalif, Aryan pun mintak dipopok jugak. Last-last aku yg rasa meroyan ye. Uuuhhhh.

I already got a maid. Alhamdulillah so far ok. Mintak mintak biarlah serasi and terus ok. But Aryan mmg taknak dgn bibik. Semuanya masih mommy & daddy. Aku pun tak harap sgt bibik utk uruskan anak-anak kami. Dia bnyk uruskan kerja kerja rumah. Masak pun masih aku yg buat. Ni dia pun ikut balik johor during my confinement. Tolong2 mama kat rumah sebab mama pun dh tak kuat sgt- sampai nak pitam bengkungkan aku. Huuuu. Tapi nanti start kerja terpaksalah aku merelakan bibik jaga Khalif. Dats y amik dia awal so boleh pantau kerja2 dia dulu before aku start kerja.



Ok. Nak online shopping sementara Khalif tido and Aryan tgh mood baik ni. Theehehe. Chiao.

Positive vibes needed ! Dah lama bebenor tak menulis, kelas plak dah lama tamat. I am kinda lose the confidence plak. Agagaga ;p Entah ingat entah tidak amenda aku blaja masa kat kelas hari tu. Btw, went for my 36 weeks check-up this morning. Alhamdulillah, baby is doing great, heartbeat is strong and stable, eyes movement sgt rapid, and dah practise jadi ahli sukan kot asyik kicking and moving around. Sometimes sampai senak dibuatnya ;) Alhamdulillah baby dah pusing ke bawah, but mengadap ke atas (Posterior). Berdoa bnyk-bnyk later baby akan mengadap ke bawah (Anterior). Amin..Sebab OP position akan menyebabkan effacement menjadi perlahan. So kalau aku give up nanti acanne. Huargh.  

Well kelas ke-4 and ke-5 n0, Nadine combined in one session. Sebab the 5th class tu more to wrap up everything that we learnt from the 1st -4th class. 4th class emphasized the role of the birth companion (read : husband lah yg paling relevant here, Unless you will bring your own doula into the labor room). Few take aways :

- Husband needs to know the hospital setting, The remeh-temeh thing like if you go to the E&A directly, mana kau nak park kereta? Ada ke temporary parking at that area, or macam manakah? Sounds so remeh, tapi bila fikir balik, dah few times pegi HPKL, aku pun tak sure E&A kat mana. Agagaga ;p

- Upon arrival to the hospital, apa yg husband kena buat ? Make sure to minimise all the admin stuffs. Sign itu ini segala bagai sepatutnya very very minimal. The first thing to tell the nurse, is the birth preference sheet. Dr might have put it in the file, but better to bring extra just in case file dr tu sampai lambat ke hape ke tgn nurse. Once masuk labour room, husband kena lah set the environment -dim light, pasang rainbow CD, ayar Quran, set the temperature ikut mana yg wife comfortable, hang up the signage kalau nak bebetul make sure dpt privacy, igtkan wife to snack, igtkan wife pegi toilet etc.. Bnyk ok kerja husband sebenarnya. Bukan setakat pegang tgn and bagi baju utk ditarik & dirabakkan ;p Especially during the transition phase, husband's support & love are very very important. Back rub, encouragements, ensure the wife stay positive, strong & relax.. etc etc.

- We also practised macam mana nak ease the labour in various position bersama-sama dgn husband. The best position is of course to work with the gravity. Squat, bersila, berpaut pd hubby, on all four etc etc etc. Semua segan segan oke nak practise,padehal ngan laki sendiri kan. Wahhaha. And also we practised the cakap-cakap masa hypnobirth (by husband), and dah agak dah, aku gelak all the way when MNI tried to hypnotised me. It did not work sebab aku dengar suara & intonasi dia macam tok pawang mana jah. Kahakhka. But Nadine said takpe, gelak ketawa jugak bagus to ease the labour. Well sepatutnya suara & intonasi MNI must be soothing enough to bring me to deep relaxation state, tapi nan ado ye. Kehkehke pasrah.

- To layan the surge macam waves gitu. Don't fight it, but ride on with it.

- To delay in going to the hospital. When contractions reach 5-1-1, then that's the best time to go. But of course it depends on your location from the hospital jugak. Kalau jauh bebenor, then make a wise decision when to go. (5-1-1 is contraction that lasts for 1 min, repeat/regular in every 5 mins, that have been lasting/in regular interval for 1 hour)

- To try various position in labour. Lying down is not the only option that you have. In fact it is the worst because path pada kedudukan itu adalah paling susah baby nak lalu. Feel free to try other positions and normally mommies will know which position is the most comfortable and the best to ease delivery.

- Options if labour slows down--> Normally sebab mommies sendiri yg stress, baby in OP position etc. Don't go for artificial induction straight away (my mistake masa delivered Aryan dulu). Discuss with Obgyn to rupture the membrane dulu. The intent is bila air ketuban dah keluar, it is easier for baby to engage sebab dah takde water support. Tapi bila dah pecah ketuban kena avoid VE supaya takde infection. 

- And bila near completion tu, mommies mesti tau punya baby dah nak keluar. Boleh rasa the ring of fire. And don't push baby out. Instead breath out. And this time sgtlah important to visualise macam mana path baby nak kuar. Masa thinning & opening tu, visualise lah the red petals, blue ribbon etc. Ni semua blajar dalam kelas, susah plak nak explain sini.

Itu je yg aku igt. Bnyk sgt benda nak share tapi taktau macam mana nak tulis. Uuuu.

We have shared and discussed our birth preferences with Dr Idora. She said takde benda pelik-pelik pun yg aku mintak, as semuanya standard je bagi dia. Alhamdulillah. But I forgot to include our preference kalau c-sect is absolutely necessary. Takpelah next check up boleh discuss. Memanglah kalau boleh by all means nak avoid keluar ikut tingkap, but kita hanya merancang kan. Dia yang Maha Berkuasa dan Mengatahui apa yg terbaik utk kita. 

Sharing our birth preferences : (Ni stok print screen, gila buruk quality. Ehhe. The original one Dr Idora dah cop & agreed and simpan dalam file)


Oklah. Please pray for my ease & safe delivery. Amiinn.

p/s : dah start kemas-kemas brg baby. Last week I brought my Freestyle nak pegi service sebab suction dah slow melow. Ye lah heavy duty masa time Aryan dulu. Sekali service centre reject sebab dah keluar black dust ! Stress sgt oke. Diorang taknak service and aku nampak macam jalan yg ada ialah to get a new Freestyle. Waddehh. Nanges mak.Later lah I post pasal Freestyle ni, the US version yg tak compatible with Msia (yg guna Sweden nya specs) etc.

Oh Em Gee

Super busy sampai rasa sesak napas :(

-Biasalah awal tahun, walaupun ala-ala baru nak warm up kerja.. tapi disebabkan department aku kena re-org, buat aku tercungap jugak lah. New boss, new team mates, new work scope, serba baru lah gituu..

-Then macam gelabah pulak nak prepare for maternity leave ni. Prepare nak handover kerja kepada org lain kekdahnya. Uuuuu.

-But I have no plan for early maternity leave pun (read MC 2 weeks earlier than EDD). I think this time around, I prefer to go to the office sampai rasa nak beranak. Eheh. Sebab kalau cuti awal pun, dok rumah lagi saiko menunggu detik bila nak contraction 5-1-1 nih. I guess better gi opis sampai lebam, MNI pun kat same building.. So kalau tetiba emergency boleh neno neno neno turun dari level 28 ke level 18 cari lakiku.

- Kelas hypnobirth dah habes. Later lah I'll blog about kelas no 4 & 5 kalau still igt lah. Agagaga. I hope keyakinan diri itu ada sampai lah selamat melahirkan. Birth preference dah discuss with Dr Idora. She is pretty much OK with all the contents. Aku takde mintak benda-benda pelik pun. Semuanya standard katanya. Oh lega. Semoga semuanya berjalan lancar & selamat. Amin. 

- Aryan turned 3 years old 2 weeks ago. Such a big abang long already. Nanti nak tempek gamba celebration kecil-kecilan kami. Sorry bro, this year no party for you. Mommy is so heavily pregnant and tak kosa nak plan birthday party saat-saat cenggini. Next year inshaAllah k.

- We went for babymoon @ Singapore last 2 weeks. Celebrate birthday Aryan jugak la kekdahnya. It was an awesome trip ! Sgt relaxing, tak rushing gi sana-sini like we normally do kalau gi vacation. Kalau boleh segala tpt nak terjah. But this time around, mmg we all chillax habes. Dgn hotel yg best gile cantik sgt dok teperap kat hotel pun mak tak kesah, then gi merayap ke Marina Bay sambil berpegangan tangan (Aryan jadik photographer. Haha seriously he's such a big Abg Long now).. chill sgt percutian pendek kali ini. Me likey likey! Must do this more often.

Dah masa itu emas skarang. I will opt for tido tido and tido kalau ada masa terluang. Sebab lepas deliver ni, at least 2 tahun pasti tak cukup tido. Hikhik. Nanyte all. Daaa !
