Pregnancy is not a disease

Assalam,

Arini, nak merepek sket. This week is 32 weeks for me n twins. Se'eh nk bergerak, tido sakit badan and macam2 rungutan boleh sy ckp.. Tapi, it is a normal for preggy mum having this kind of sakit2. Sebab tu lah, mengandung dan bersalin ni salah satu penghapus dosa.

Memang x boleh nak elak, memang kadang2 merungut. Badan penat and sakit2. Tapi, ada preggy mum yang treat pregnancy as penyakit. Over concern, overcautious dan segala macam over lagi la.

Yang obses dengan segala pantang larang lagi la. Benda yang pelik main ikut semacam. Benda paling senang nak tengok is pemakanan. Memang la makan raw things. It leads to salmonela. (sila google). Tapi, jangan treat benda tu je as pantang..kalau air manis etc elok je ko hentam. Treat both hidden threats equally.

Ada plak tu, bila pregnant je, terus tolak kerja2 kat tempat kerja mentah2. Konon x boleh nak buat kerja berat sangat. Dah tu, orang sihat and tak pregnant ni kena ni beralah selalu. Memang la privilege tu dapat. Sebabnya, orang kesian. Tapi kalau every single detail kerja ko buat macam ko nak beranak le le tu jugak, x ke orang panas ati? It's your choice to get pregnant, deal with it. Cuma, orang lain ada courtesy nak kesiankan ko as mak buyung.

Ish.... jangan buat manja sangat la.

31 weeks' progress and throwback

Assalam,

Dah masuk 31 minggu rupanya. Hari ni check up kat HTAA. Dah start check up dua minggu skali. Susah? Mula-mula rasa leceh check up kat hospital, check up KK lagi. Orang memang akan tanya, "ehh..check up lagi minggu ni?". Aah. memang tu la rutin saya. Sekarang dah rasa biasa.

Dua minggu skali, kena buat BSP (blood sugar profile). Ni hasilnya kalau korg diabetic masa preggy ya. Nak tau lagi, Google ler. Awal-awal dulu, siap nanges kalau hari nak buat BSP. Yela, sehari kena buat 4 kali. kul 8 pg, 12 noon, 5.30pm and 8.30pm. Bayangkan mentally tortured camne. Dah la time tu mengajar, kena lak ulang alik g klinik, kena lak reading tinggi. Sepatutnya range dlm 4-5.6 je. Bila reading glucose tinggi, kena buat lagi minggu depan. Ulang-alik lagi. Memang rasa nak nangis tu sangat la. Tapi, lepas pinjam FIL punya glucose tester, saya xyah dah pegi klinik utk BSP. Test sendiri je. Legaaa...

 Tapi, lepas tu saya dapat tips dari kakak opis. Jangan makan 2 jam before test, banyakkan air kosong. Memang bagus la petua tu. So, amalkan kurangkan gula tu. Sangat bagus. Hba1C sy pon OK je.. dah dua kali test still 4.8. Ngam la tu..

pregnancy kali ni saya amalkan VCO awal sket sbb ada masalah membuang. Hehe.. so, kena la cari bahan bantuan. So far, dari 5 bulan amalkan, dah nak masuk 8 bulan ni, hasil sgt memberansangkan. Even HB pon x turun dr 11.9. Nak promote brand apa? Saya makan D'Aura punya. Nak makan jenis lain pon OK. and saya makan jenis soft gel. x lalu nak makan yg liquid. Tak pasal muntah lak kang, Haha.

So.... tadi dah g check kali ke 5 kat hospital. Last visit, doc ada mention yang akan discuss mode of delivery. Tp doc ni x discuss pun. So, saya tanya je la. Doc tu kata, kita discuss masa 33 wks or so la. so far, dia tengok baby still sorg cephalic (kepala bawah), sorg breech (songsang). Kalau ada rezeki, yg breech tu pusing boleh la nk normal. Tapi, as per condition hari ni, perut dah sangat penuh. Kalau sampai 34 weeks, dia memang bg option jugak nak normal. But for me, saya prefer c-sect je. Tak nak risiko, dah normal sorg, complication plak..sorg lagi c-sect. x mau ahhh atas bawah kena jahit. 😭😭

Scan arini:
Boy 1.8kg
Girl 1.6kg.

Ala..shayamss mama. cepat besar OK?..

My 33rd birthday celebration

Ok...mak tau ni 2nd entry for today. Meroyan sikit..hahahha

This celebration deserved an entry. Asyik sibuk cite preknen je, mcm xde benda lain dah. Hahahaha.

Last week, Selasa, 25th October 2016.. Cukuplah umur 33 tahun. Tua dah kan? Haihhhh... takpe la. Nak buat cane. Mana ada orang makin hari, makin muda. Outer look, ye lah. Ko bleh pakai Keihl's, SKII bagai.. umur tu tetap gak meningkat. Deny la banyak mana pon.

Hah, merepek pulak. Ok, berbalik pada cerita hari tu.

Malam sebelum, mood kelaut sket. Penat. Perut dah berbondong-bondong kedepan. Tapi, hubby suruh si Adam nyanyi lagu birthday. Sudahnya, dia humming je. Mama pon sengeh je la. Pastu tido. Malam tu, dalam kul 2 pagi kut, si Humaira mintak susu. Sempat la Hubby wish birthday (dia bangun and buat susu). Dalam ngantuk-ngantuk tu jawab "tq" (rasanya jawab kut..haha).

Pagi, mata dah terbukak fresh, kali ni betul-betul punya wish. Haha..Ok, saya semangat jawab "Thanks". Salam hubby and g kerja sambil sengih2.

Dalam kul 8 lebih, perut dah berkeroncong tamil nadu. Aktiviti wajib pegi breakfast kat cafe staff. Amik nasik lauk, then duduk. Ada call masuk.

Caller: Assalam, puan. Puan di office ke?
Me: Aah. Tapi, saya kat cafe ni. Bukan kat office. Siapa ni?
Caller:  Saya nak hantar barang kat Puan.
Me: (Sape pulak? Ish..scammer ke stalker ke ni??) Aaaa....kenapa nak hantar barang. Saya xde kat office.
Caller: Saya jumpa puan kat sana la ya. Ada barang suami puan hantar.
Me: (Dah dapat idea apekah benda ni!) Owh...hahahaha...datang la... Hahahaha. Saya kat cafe.
Call ended
*muka cuak sebab ramai orang kat cafe.

Kakak tu call lagi. Saya pandang kat kereta kancil putih tu, then dia kenal la siapa puan Farah yg dia nak anta brg tu. Pastu, jeng..jeng..jengggg.. Siap nyanyi lagi, there was a bouquet of chocolates and a balloon. Hahaha..tu diaaa!!!


Pastu, tengahari. Rupa-rupanya, kak adda n my colleagues siap beli cake lagi!! Hahahaha. Sukanyaaaa!!!

oppsss...abaikan perut boyot itteww..hahahaha
Dah siap lunch, so, I checked my whatsapp. Eh?! Ada parcel rupanya. Tapi rasanya xde plak beli barang online this week.. hmmm???? So, pegi la ke admin n amik brg. Tgk nama sender... x kenal, description- cake..huh?? address- Kedah??? Haikkk...mana punya secret admirer anta kek ni. Hahaha. Ok, lastnya..tengok no phone receiver. Aik, ni no phone Kak G ni. Hahahaha...
Nak lagi kelakar, bukak2 parcel..muka aku atas kek!! Hahahaha..mmg pecah perut la. But it was a nice swiss roll cake. Hahahaha.


Sama x dengan tuan dia? Hahahaha
Last surprise was the birthday cake from encik Hubby. Few weeks before, I whatsapp my hubby dearie. "Nak kek camni bday nanti". With a printscreen Victoria Sandwich Cake, dr sorang homebaker yang sy mmg slalu beli kek and lasagna. He fulfilled it!! Yay!! So, malam tu ada la potong2 kek and nyanyi2 dari anak kesayangans. Hahahaha..

the bouquet of chocs

My cake! Victoria sandwich cake
That's a wrap for the day. Muah muah!!

29 weeks and counting

Hola!!!

Today, just came back from routine check up at HTAA. Everything went well. The baby is gaining as expected. The previous breech position has changed to one breech and one cephalic. The girl cephalic and the boy is breech. But it is still too early as they can still change the position as long as they want.

The doc was asking whether has any doc discussed regarding the mode of delivery? Well, as far as I remembered, none was seriously discussed about that. They just mentioned that if the positions are OK, then normal is allowed. If breech, then Cesarean will be opted.

Then, she explain since I have reached the 29 weeks. For twins, it is normal for them to be delivered earlier than expected. As she looked at my belly, she concerned of how much bigger can my belly go. The size of the belly could also affect the maturity of the pregnancy. And then...the lengthy explanation. Hahahaha....

To tell the truth, I was kinda worried. Yeah, delivering twin. For those who think delivering them as easy as delivering the normal single baby, nope...nuh uh... I was exposed to the risk of fatigue, breech for second baby, C-sect for second baby, placenta ruptured, bleeding. Yeah, this is also risk for normal single delivery too but I am going to have higher risk to get that.

Most of people (including my mum), they were saying, "Boleh normal tu. Sakit c-zer tu lagi teruk. C-zer tu susah nak sihat."

I am more concern of my babies' conditions. I want them to be healthy. Imagine, after hours of contractions, I have to push twice, and if the one of the babies is breech, I have to undergo c-sect. Wow!!

So, my plan is, if they can make sure I won't go for any c-sect, then I will opt for normal.
But, this is just me talking. Hahahaha...

*malas nk dengar cakap orang dah. This is my body, and I controlled my decision.

The news

Assalam,

I plan to write this little journey of mine regularly but Allah's plan is better. Haha.. I was busy with all the things, life, work, mummy's life. Juggling between work and being a mum and wife is not an easy thing to do. Well, I still want to keep writing since I want to put the memory of my each pregnancy here.

It started when I decided to get pregnant. Humaira is 3, Adam is 5 and I think they are old enough to listen and do things that we asked. so, yeah... we go on with the plan.

That was in April 2016.

May 2016, I only realized that I was 'late' that month when a colleague mentioned about hers. I frantically looked at my mobile apps and yup, I get that butterfly fluttering in the stomach when it was supposed to be 3 days before that. I knew my body very well, thus I waited for another couple of days and tested at home. Again, the double line appear.

It was Ramadhan when my siblings found that I am pregnant. At the same time, my lil brother announced their good news too. So, there are two baby bumps in the family!! Yay! It was a really good news since my bro was waiting for two years for his baby. They got married when Humaira was 3 months.

My lil sister and my brother keep teasing me that I am pregnant with twin. I was laughing at their jokes. Uhuh...at that time, it was a funny thing. I said to them, "Ingat kucing ke nak anak banyak skali pregnant?" and who knows at that time, maybe the doa was granted then.

Weeks after that, I went to a clinic, alone, since I just want to do a confirmation. I have to register for my regular check up at the nearest Klinik Kesihatan. Thus the need of confirmation. It was Tuesday morning 21 June 2016, and I said to Ida n Kak Adda, I wanna go to our panel clinic. It was nearby, the Poliklinik Ar-Razi. I called hubby and told him again, though I had mentioned it the night before. He was reluctant to let me go alone. I said, everything would be fine. It was a simple test, or a scan. Hubby was having a meeting, so I didn't want to bother him. Moreover, this is my 3rd pregnancy (plus I had a D&C before). Alaaaa.... no biggie.

So, everything was normal. registered my name, asked for a female doctor and waited for my name to be called. Then, the doc asked me to do a scan. The lady doctor was wearing a full hijab. She asked a few things and scan my tummy. Suddenly, she said, "Allahuakbar, Subhanallah...." I was stunned. What was it? Was it something bad? My baby...is she OK?

"Alhamdulillah Puan. Puan pregnant kembar. Ada keturunan kembar ke?" (Alhamdulillah, you are pregnant with twin. Do you have any twins in the family?"
I was like, huh???? My brain couldn't register what she said. After a few seconds, I answered the family twins' history. (My parent both has twins in the family). I felt blood rushing to my cheek. It was overwhelming.

As soon as the scan ended, I whatsapp my husband and sent the scan picture to him with caption "Guess what?" and he replied, "A boy?". I couldn't stop laughing. How can he guess that. I was still at 10 weeks pregnant. I said, "twin". His replied was this..

Hahahaha..... I couldn't call him since he was in a meeting. Imagine him can't focus in the meeting..hahahaha

Then, I called my mum (while driving, yeah.... guilty of that. But I can't help myself.). She didn't sound so surprised but she was rambling about having the history of twins in the family etc...hahahaha...

Arrived at the office, I literally almost run to my office. I shouted Ida's name at the main door. Tried to cope with my breathing, I told her the good news and Kak Diah heard our screams. Hahahaha... Everyone was screaming with joy. Called kak Adda too and showed her the scan. Even the boss screamed!! Hahahaha.

I was on cloud nine all day long. Couldn't believe it myself.

 Well, that was the day I got the news. A very happy news.....

I should start writing again

Assalam,

Yeah.. I know. It's been a while. But, I think I should start writing again. With all these wonderful experience and great news, it's sad if I don't put it into writing, something that stays forever.

Let's recap.

2015- Got my M.Ed TESL. Barely finished it on time. Hahahaha
2016- Nothing much, I got pregnant not with one but two.

WHAT?!!!

Yeah.. I am bless with this 3rd pregnancy, TWIN!!

I am currently at my 18 weeks. The first trimester went quite OK. Not too much nausea, just lost few kilos and the bad news is I am stuck with GDM (Gestational Diabetic Melitus) or most people call it Diabetic during pregnancy. I'll write the whole story later, in the next post.

My kids, Adam and Humaira. Adam is 5 years old. He started his pre-school years last year (I can't remember whether I have mentioned this or not.). He became a very chatty boy, and is a very helpful child. Humaira just turned 3 last July and she is a very talkative one. When I say talkative, it means she can talk non-stop for one hour. I send her to Taska everyday, and she is kakak to some of the little kids there. I love her bouncy curly-at-end hair. But it is very difficult to manage, plus her sometimes don't-want-to-comb-her-hair attitude.

My husband, still a caring and understanding man. Love him to the moon and back. We have our ups and downs. Still, that's what marriage life is all about. Sharing the same burden and scratching each others' back.

Well, I'll better stop now. Got class to teach.
Till next post,
byeeee :)

Priceless..

Assalam..

Years ago, I have a lot of things that I love to do.

I love reading. Yes. I could finish reading a novel in one day.
Remember the thick Harry Potter series? I finished reading that thick novel (the last one) in two days. Hahaha...
I also love reading Malay novels. Ni lagi la, dalam 3/4 jam (with interruptions) pon boleh abis.

I love handmade things. Crafts, hand made cards, quilling, scrap book making... etc.
I make my own greeting cards, my book marks and I gave them to my friends too.

I love watching movie at cinema. Most of the time, I watched sci-fi, action movies and animation. I went to cinema with frens and mr.hubby of course.

I am crazy with tv dramas and series. Name it! Grey's Anatomy, CSI (all three), Rookie Blue, K-drama, Chinese series, ...

But those are PAST...
PAST TENSE...
ago..
was..
last time...

When I changed my status from a married lady to a mother, those are the things I sacrificed.

When I tried to watch my drama series, my two little kiddos will shriek for attention. When both of them had calm down, the drama had either ended or I just couldn't understand the storyline anymore.

When I took my quilling pen or tried to cut my papers, these babies will start 'helping' me. They tore them apart or mess with all my organized DIY materials. I had to put the stuff away or I had to take them away from the stuffs.

When I planned to have a midnight movie watching or a date with hubby, I have to consider should I left them with my mum. Can my mum handle their crying and wailing when they saw me leaving?

When my babies have already fell asleep, I pick up my novel, and ZZZzzzzz.... the novel thus became my bedtime stories.

Not to complain, far from making any unpleasant remarks. But, I just want to tell people, those are the things I miss. Some friends keep asking me, "It's been a while I saw u did this, did that..."Well, this is why. I am no longer a single lady, I am no longer living alone.
I am a mother of two and a wife. AND I am proud telling people that.

Those are the things I miss.
BUT
I never regret those sacrifices.
I'd rather have my kids than have those.
None can ever be exchanged for them.

Agree? :)
XOXO

HIATUS...

Menegur untuk kebaikkan atau nak menjatuhkan?

Assalam,

Dah lama nak tulis pasal tajuk ni. Tapi, bila fikir-fikir, malas pulak. Baik tulis yang merepek saja. Hehe. Bila terjumpa kisah best yang kena ngan tajuk ni, so aku pun ada la idea nak tulis.


Kisahnya, ada sipolan ni. Menegur kat FB. Kawan dia ni makan dekat restoran yang empunya ialah Ca Ya Nun Alip. Tanya kawan dia ni kedai tu ada sijil halal x? Komen terang-terang kat FB.
Bagi aku la, mesti la yg kena tegur tu terkedu sebab baru terpikir, tadi makan kat kedai tak halal ke? Selama ni memang Muslim makan je kat situ. Takde pulak huru hara sebab kedai tu jual makanan tak halal. Pastu, kena tegur di khalayak ramai (dlm FB kan semua orang boleh baca). Malu tak kalau jadi kawan tu tadi? Malu lah!

Nak jadi cerita, kawan ni tak puas hati. Dia bukak website Halal Jakim, google apa yang patut. Jumpa la dia dgn penyataan yang kedai tu Halal sebenarnya. Cuma pernah ada kontroversi. (Macam kes Starbucks yg org kecoh x halal, tapi sebenarnya ada sijil Halal). Kawan ni reply la semula comment tu.

Yang aku nak highlight sini adalah cara komen tu.

Bila nak tegur isu-isu sensitif, ada baiknya guna pendekatan secara halus. Banyak cara. Ada fon number, message la. Lagi senang, guna Whatsapp.
Tak ada no phone? PM kat FB. Ko dah boleh komen, takkan takleh message kut?
Tak boleh message sebab orang tu dah privatekan FB dia? Comment la dengan penuh bijaksana. Guna ayat yang bertepatan dan bukan dengan nada sindiran.

Teringat cerita UstazKazim Alias, dalam satu ceramah dia di TV. Meh aku share ringkasan cerita tu;
"Ada seorang kakak ni. Dia hantar anak ke sekolah tak pakai tudung. Hari-hari kakak ni bertembung dengan Ustaz Kazim. Ustaz tak tegur apa pun. Ustaz cuma bagi salam. Hari-hari. Mula-mula kakak ni, turun dengan baju lengan pendek. Lepas tu, kakak ni berubah sikit demi sedikit. Akhirnya, dia berubah pakai tudung. Hanya dengan salam yang diberikan oleh ustaz Kazim."

 Hidup kita ni, kalau nak menegur kena la ada caranya. Kena berhikmah dan halus. Rasulullah saw mengislamkan umat manusia pun bukannya letak parang kat leher orang. Semuanya bermula dengan senyap dan rahsia.

Nak tegur orang pon perlu siasat juga sahih atau tak sesuatu perkara tu ye.
:)

Jadilah generasi berilmu, bukan generasi yang hanya tahu share tapi ilmu tak ada. Malu je dapat.
