8 Month Check Up

09/04/2017, 32w3d

Assalamualaikum & hallo!

Had a monthly check up at Klinik Kesihatan Kubang Kerian on 09/04/2017 when I was 32w3d pregnant. I went there alone unaccompanied as A.H had an important visit from JKNK at his clinic on that day. Sedih sikit la A.H tak dapat teman as it was an ultrasound appointment but that was one of the sacrifice I've to pay for being a doctor's wife. Huhu! InsyaAllah, semoga ada reward daripada Allah someday. Amin

 Oh that tired face, so kesian

The appointment was scheduled at 8 am but I was 15 minutes late. Tapi actually even datang awal sharp at 8 am pun, it didn't make much difference sebab memang adat di government clinic, waiting queue tu lama sikit. I didn't get to breakfast that morning, so I brought some snacks, air kotak Dutch Lady & sweets just to distract my growling tummy. Lapar sikit

I finally had my no. called at around 11.50 am. I was informed by the doctor, Dr Suhaibah that they already called my no. earlier but I didn't come in. Aikk! What did I do sampai tak terperasan sebab memang alert la. But nevermind, not that I was rushing to go anywhere pun. Kagum pulak dengan level of patient I've in myself. Lols!

Had an ultrasound & alhamdulillah, everything is well. Our Little I's current estimated weight (on 09/04/2017) is 1.796kg, almost 1 kg heavier from the previous check up we had on 07/03/2017 when she was 941g. Dr Suhaibah said "Bulat gotey". Lols!

Oh, our Little I's gender has been confirmed once again & yes, we're expecting a baby girl. Alhamdulillah. So, bolehlah shopping baju gegurl dengan lebih yakin tanpa ragu-ragu πŸ‘ΆπŸ»πŸŽ€

For the record, I've been gaining about 8kg so far & this is the heaviest I've been so far in my entire life but anything for you, my child! Hb reading kadang-kadang ok, kadang tak ok. Hihi!

  • 07/11/2016 (10w3d) - 46.2kg - Hb 11.8
  • 06/12/2016 (14w5d) - 47.6kg - Hb 11.0
  • 08/01/2017 (19w3d) - 48.0kg - Hb 10.3
  • 22/01/2017 (21w3d) - 49.0kg - Hb 10.1
  • 06/02/2017 (23w4d) - 50.0kg - Hb 9.6
  • 14/02/2017 (24w5d) - Hb 11.0
  • 05/03/2017 (27w5d) - 51.0kg
  • 02/04/2017 (31w2d) - 54.0kg - Hb 10.7

Lagi satu, during the previous check up at Klinik Desa on 02/04/2017, I was lectured by the nurse for gaining 3kg in a month. Uh oh! Musim kenduri kot, so terlebih makan? :P

The next check up will be on this Monday, 17/07/2017. I pray may I don't gain much weight this time. Amin!

I had my late brunch later at the famous Nasi Kukus Abe Mie & also my all time favourite Mango Juice before masuk office. Makan nak sedap aje kan? Macam mana la tak gain weight sampai 3kg *rolls eyes*


33 Weeks Of Pregnancy

Alhamdulillah, I'm in my 33th week of pregnancy this week. 7 weeks left to go? Or probably less? Allahuahlam

I remember the day when I read my pregnancy book where they have the pregnancy journey/progress colourfully illustrated & I looked in utter disbelief at how long the journey will be until I reach my 3rd trimester. But now I'm already in my 3rd trimester, 8th month to be precise & oh my Allah, I don't know whether I'm mentally & physically ready to be a mom!

The hospital bags (both mine & for our child) aren't ready yet, we haven't washed the clothes, we still have some stuff that we haven't bought (yesterday the Mother asked me whether I've bought the bekung to be worn during my confinement. Blurr daku kejap, thought that it's for the baby. Erkk!), the confinement room is 80% completed, I haven't started any exercise (that would help me ease my labour) & the list goes on

Shall we feel panicked? Sebab tak boleh nak expect kan bila bersalin

Nonetheless, please continue growing up well, healthy & strong our Little I / Little Miss Sunshine πŸ’• We can go through these remaining weeks together! Sikit je lagi! InsyaAllah!

Something White & Pretty

River Island Floral Embroidered Panel Clip Top Purse

I've been eyeing some pretty purses from River Island & the one in the photo above currently tops up the list. Sigh! So pretty!

It's not as expensive as Dior or Channel but knowing me, I know how careful I've been with my spending. Especially amidst the preparation for our child's arrival soon. Could have used the money to buy something else.

But, my collection of purses has stopped growing since last year (Lols!) & I think I'm in need of a new purse. Something pretty & elegant; like the one above. Saw a pretty girl last weekend at Watson with a handsome black purse & suddenly, couldn't help but to feel so down. Me? A selekeh pregnant woman with very poor fashion sense T_T #pregnancyhormones #pregnancybrain

That's it!

I'm so going to buy it!

The Confinement Room

Assalamualaikum & hallo!

My Mother, since I was 4m pregnant, has been telling me to get everything ready asap for my delivery. I honestly thought that it was way too early. From the various sources that I've read, it's safe to start preparing for the arrival of the little one when you enter the second trimester, at least when the gender is confirmed

In our case, we knew the gender of our child during the 4D scan that we did when I was 27w1d pregnant

I'm now in my 30w of pregnancy, Alhamdulillah & the preparation is 70% done. We still have a lot of things to do & buy anyway (but again, baby business is a never ending one ayte?) & one of them is getting the Confinement Room ready

This is the current state of it
That pretty bassinet is a gift from my Mother to her cucus

The room was previously used by my Father as his mini office before it was turned to the Confinement Room after my Sister delivered her 2nd child (my niece, Maryam) in Nov 2015 (where she got to officiate the pretty bassinet in the photo above). Can't believe that it's going to be my turn soon to use this room. Lols!

Anyway, A.H & I are planning to revamp it & this is out 'To Do' list:-

Installing wallpaper
The current wall paint is yellow (as per photo above) & I honestly think that it's kind of panas. Initially, we planned to paint it white or light grey but installing wallpaper is much easier. We have the featured wall in our bedroom (where we'll put the bassinet & all) installed with Kaison wallpaper & we think it's pretty decent la for its reasonable price. So, Kaison wallpaper is our utmost option for now. We bought 2 rolls of wallpaper last Friday & can't wait to get them installed this weekend!

🌬 Installing a wall fan
The room is not air conditioned & all this while, it relies on that kipas berdiri (?) which I think not practical when we have a few guests in the room. Nasib baik bilik tu tak panas sangat

πŸ”– Buying a new rug (?) 
Do we really need one?

🎐 Buying a new set of curtain that goes well with wallpaper 
 As much as I appreciate that green curtain that my Mother had sewn with love, I don't think it goes well with the wallpaper that we have bought. Hehe!

πŸŽ€ Washing the kain-kain pembalut (?) bassinet, Little I's bed sheets, bantals etc
I did the first batch of basuh-basuh last Saturday. Selama ni selalu tengok kat IG orang je kan seeing them hanging those little tiny cute clothes before the baby's arrival. Tumpang excited tengok. Alhamdulillah that Allah swt has given me this wonderful opportunity & I sincerely pray for everyone who hasn't had the rizq yet, may Allah bless them with child/children one fine day. Amin

🌈 Washing Little I's clothes, blankets etc 
Baju-baju belum basuh yet. Will wait until we get the Confinement Room ready which hopefully within these 2 weekends. InsyaAllah

πŸ›‹ Decorating the room in order to distract my mind for being separated from my roommate who sleeps in the room next door. Lols! 
But there's a high possibility that A.H will be joining me sleep in the Confinement Room & acts as my personal doctor. Auww! I know him well
