Husband and I spent the entire day at home today, which is really rare because our weekends are very precious to us for dating. Tummy felt uncomfortable since last night and I just don’t know what is it that the baby wants. Last night I thought baby wanted prata, so I asked husband to buy on the way home. I had a few bites and that was it. The tummy still felt funny. I then had an apple and went to bed right after.
I thought I would have felt better when I woke up, but no. there’s probably too much gas in my tummy or something. Or maybe I ate too much fruits today? Fruits are supposed to be good right? Aiyah, don’t know lah I feel bloated but hungry and tummy hurts.
Baby will turn 9 weeks on Tuesday, yey! Still no vomitting at the moment, alhamdullilah.
OK, HONESTLY SO UNCOMFORTABLE I DON’T FEEL LIKE WRITING. BYE.
AM seeing you in an hour baby, but pls tell me why I am feeling no fatigue at all today? Something is not right somewhere…..
You are still in me right? I hope I am just scaring myself for nothing. hmmm….
Update at 6.49pm
I am home and yes baby is doing great and I am doing great, baby’s heart pumping too. I am soooooo happy when i saw the baby ok. Here is an ultrasound taken during the check up.
Oh, anyway, Diah told me the absence of my fatigueness and the sudden increase in my appetite might be because of the Birds Nest I started eating last night. If it is, then I am so going to eat it every day without fail because I feel so much better today compared to other days.
For now, I am just looking forward to my next check up which is 5 weeks from now, on 5th April. We might be able to see baby’s gender then. WOOHOO!!!!!!!!
Feeling so miserable right now. I am having a terrible headache and that weird taste in my mouth is just getting worse. My stomach’s growling because I am hungry but I can’t have more than a spoonful of rice.
Just forced myself to eat at least 5 spoonful of rice tks to my mother who sat with me as I ate and talked to me about how the baby is growing with everything that I am eating. I know all of that, but I guess having someone talk to me about it while I am eating just encouraged me to put aside all the negative thoughts and think only for the poor baby who was probably very hungry. 5 spoonfuls of rice took me 45 minutes to finish which is waaaaaay too long for me because well, if you know me, you would know that I eat very fast!
I also had tahui, soya bean, milk and an apple in the morning so I hope it is enough for the baby for now. I’ve been lying down on my bed since morning cos eveytime I get up, the head starts spinning like nobody’s business! Couldn’t take it any longer, so I just took 2 panadols. Hopefully I’d feel better soon. I need to shower and pray and read. Badly. The books are calling out to me, but everytime I turn a page, my head hurts! Arrrrgh!!!!
Update @ 6.35pm
Feeling so much better after the panadols and taking a shower. I guess the mood swings are getting to me. I am in such a good mood now, I am practically smiling for no reason like s siao char bo. I had my 2nd serving of ANOTHER 5 spoonful fo rice. My food looks like ‘makanan kucing’ (cat’s food).
Ok, sooo not appetising. But it tastes sooo good, you have no idea. LOL I don’t know why I prefer plain tasteless food compared to tasty berlauk-pauk food. I can’t stand sambal too. So it is just plain rice with just fish or chicken for now. On some days, plain rice, fried egg and ketchup is delicious to me. It is so going to be a boy because my sister experienced this too when she was pregnant with Amirin. :p
Now, now want to see my bump (or fats?!) at 8 weeks? Here goes….
(pls excuse the very mismatched outfit. It is all about being comfortable people! Heh I am so trying to confort myself)
Am i not suppose to show yet at 8 weeks?! erm, I think so. *gulp*
Update @ 10.20pm
Ok, how I wish I can tweet this small updates about my pregnancy. Well, I don’t have to blog about it, but this is too funny to miss.
My mum in law packed food for both of us for dinner and today she cooked Sambal Tumis Kerang and Sotong Hitam. Both were my favourite before I got pregnant and I was looking forward to eating sotong hitam after she called me in the afternoon to tell me what she cooks today. But! The moment the husband opened his packet of rice I wanted to puke! The smell of the sotong hitam was extremely gross to my nose. LOL and I find this so funny because I don’t ever think that I will EVER find any food gross. I guess I was speaking too soon. So anyway, I went out of the room and did my reading in the living room until husband is done. I then went back to our room. As I was reading and my mind started thinking about the sotong hitam that mum in law packed for me in the kitchen. I wanted it. Wanted it badly. So I thought maybe I am over the smell and I can eat now. Yeah riiiight.
Went to the kitchen, scooped up one sotong, and some kerang(s) and placed them on a plate with very little rice, heat it up and sat down feeling positive that I want to eat them. I licked some of the sotong hitam gravy on my fingers and that was it. I wanted to puke! But I want the sotong and the kerang so badly! So guess what I did…………….
I WASHED THEM CLEAN! MY GOODNESS.
and then, I happily ate the washed sotong and kerang with rice and ikan goreng. Bliss.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Sorry la, might not be funny to you. BYE.
baby will be 8 weeks old tomorrow and by our next check up, baby will be 8 weeks and 3 days old. Heh. Excited macam nak mampos.
Anyway, at 8 weeks this are what I am feeling/experiencing so far:
1. Loss of appetite.
Annoying. Because I am known for being ‘gagah’ (strong) when it comes to eating. I eat A LOT. and during the first few weeks of my pregnancy, I ate like a pig. These past few days, I have not been eating well at all eg; I will feel really hungry and start thinking about what I can get from the kitchen. Once I get to the kitchen, look at what’s in store for me, that’s it. Appetite’s gone! And this can go one for the whole day! Sometimes I force myself to eat because I know the baby needs food.
2. A freaking weird taste in my mouth.
Yes, I looked it up and understand that pregnant women are supposed to have a weird metallic taste in their mouth in the beginning of their pregnancy. Well, not quite for me. It is not so much of a metallic taste. It is more of a taste that makes all good food taste horrible. I have it in my mouth at this very moment, although I am not eating anything. I just had 2 glasses of milk and now that weird taste is trying to tell me that that milk I had is going to make me gag. But I won’t gag. Weird, but I think I am going to get used to this pretty soon. Alhamdullilah, I can still take soya bean, milk and all kinds of fruits without any problem at all. (but yes, that mr weird taste will bother me right after I’m done)
3. I only want to Zzzzzzzz……
Yes, I get sleepy ALL the time. In fact, after every meal, I want to sleep. Heehee funny cos right after I had my dinner earlier, I walked to my room in whatever I was wearing (I just came home), carrying my handbag, lie down on my bed hugging my handbag and I fell asleep for 2 whole hours! :p I was wearing jeans for gods sake. I also yawn every single minute when I am in the car or air con room. Even Tatek noticed that. I yawn endlessly whenever I am in his car.
4. I can’t stand hard boiled eggs.
Hard boiled eggs used to be my favourite. I have it with every meal (if possible) and I never got sick of it….until now. Yup, I can’t stand the smell and the sight of it makes me want to puke (WANT TO but I never puke la).
5. I feel heavier than I really am.
Now that the appetite is barely there, I have been eating very little. I get full fast and stop eating the moment I start having breathing difficulty. :p Sometimes, I will only eat a spoonful of rice and that’s it! But what’s weird is that even though I am eating little, my weight seems to be increasing and I feel so heavy after every meal be it a spoonful or a whole plate.
Ok, those 5 are the most prominent changes I see so far. There might be more to come, I shall update as I go along. Time for some reading for myself and for the baby.
I am lying down trying to sleep and thinking about being pregnant. How amazing is He to make us woman feel this way? I was reading a pregnancy book last night and learned that as I speak, my baby is slowly turning from an embryo to a foetus and by the time I go for my check up next friday, baby would already have hands and feet! I know I sound very jakun, but I can’t help but think about the awesome-ness of being able to grow into a baby in such a tiny space. I hope I’m not the only one who thinks this way because I sound like a freak. maybe first time mothers feel the same way? No? Mampos.
My mum was telling me about the sacrifices a mother will make for their children starts from the moment we get pregnant and that is why ‘doa ibu selalu terkabul’. Looking at my body now, I understand that that is the first sacrifice I am making for my child. Hahaha MY BODY! Ok la, I sound selfish but true what! Chet!
Maybe I am speaking too soon, but I still haven’t experienced any morning sickness yet. It worries my in laws very much. They told me to have it checked which is really funny because it is supposed to be a good thing. I guess I am afraid that I am not a ‘normal’ pregnant woman. But of course, I checked on the internet and frm books and it is totally normal not to get any morning sickness too. I saw how my sister and diah suffered during the early stages of their pregnancy and nooooooo…. I wouldn’t want to have to go through all of that! I pray for a smooth pregnancy, insyallah.
Husband and I, we both couldnt stop thinking and talking about the gender. We have a strong feeling that it will be a boy. Well, it doesn’t matter to me, really. I use to wonder if mothers mean it when they say “ala, girl or boy never mind ah, as long as its healthy”. Ooookay…now I understand how it feels like! Because I don’t mind the gender, as long as it’s a healthy baby. Heh. The husband’s already planning to play soccer and bring him fishing if its a boy. Pretty sure it will get bullied by daddy in law, shafiq and tatek if it’s a boy. Hmph.
Ok, these are very random thoughts. Going to nap now.
You are 7 weeks old today! YEY!!!
I can barely wait for my next check up cos I will get to see you again for the 2nd time. I wonder how big you’ve gotten so far. Maybe you are still a tiny peanut, but I am still curious to know and I want to see that pumping heart again.
At 7 weeks, I have already put on 6kg. That is almost a kg every week. FUYOH and I feel so heavy already. I don’t think I was ever this heavy and it scares me a little. I looked up on the internet and it said that i should be gaining 0.5 kg per week so erm ok. I should be 3.5kg lesser. I need to check with the gynae if I am eating the right amount of calories.
My breakfast has been really healthy ever since I started reading on a new pregnancy book. I ate 2 apples everyday now, without fail and make sure I have vegetables and meat everyday. Insyallah for as long as my appetite is well, I will keep on eating (well). Heh
Alhamdullilah, I havent experienced any nausea or vomitting so far. Oh no wait. Only that one day, on our 2nd anniversary 2 days ago. I was feeling so weak and restless and wanted to just lie down and do nothing. Husband had to force me to get up and get ready because we were going to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. I brought along 2 plastics just in case I need to vomit. But no! I survived and in fact, the moment we started on the buffet, all the restlessness was gone! haha maybe I was just hungry (which is impossible because I had rice for lunch). So anyway, we had a great time eating our hearts out at the buffet restaurant. When I totally didnt expect it, husband handed me an anniversary present. Sad because I didnt get him anything at all. We both promised not to get anything for each other this year.
I felt reallllly bad for not getting him anything. See my unhappy face.
Thank you husband. You *really* shouldnt have done that!
Kinda regret eating buffet that night because although I am eating a lot nowadays, I get full very easily. So it is not worth the amount of $ we spent on that dinner :p
After dinner, we went to visit Sharleez at the hospital. Poor thing ah she, suffering from her endless cough! But she is all well now at home. Going to see her tonight.
After kk, we went to watch Kumar at Hard Rock Cafe. I was already so tired at this time, but I didnt want to dissapoint the husband so we went ahead. Kumar was well, Kumar la. Hilarious as hell.
(ok, wait need to insert other pictures)
Look at me so tembam already. But I really don’t mind. :p
I now have a pair of heels in the car for times when I need to feel *pretty*. My mum will scream if she sees me going out wearing them. I cant even wear jeans without her high pitched voice whispering in my ear to change into something less tight. Heh.
ok, am randomly wondering how the public will react when I finally announce my pregnancy. It’s not a big deal to others, but it is to me. I am currently 7 weeks pregnant now, so announcement will be made in 5 weeks time on 24th March.
(am I totally neglecting my personal blog? Yes I am.)
Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
I was supposed to write yesterday after my check up but I was too tired and barely had time to sleep for 8 full hours.
Found out less than 10mins ago that there is an application for wordpress on blackberry. Wah, so its my chance to blog as and when I want! (Am doing this while waiting for the husband outside his workplace).
Went for my check up last night. My very first check up (because my bad experience at thomson is not called a check up. It was a stupid visit). So anyway, I have to admit that I was really scared when I took the urine test because I was afraid that it might show NEGATIVE. That was my biggest fear and I did something so stupid. After showing the nurse the lithium paper (?!), i immediately asked her if I was STILL pregnant. She looked at me like I was some crazy woman and went, “erm…ya ma’am. you don’t want?”. SIAO AH I DON’T WANT??
Moving on, husband and I waited for about half an hour before it was our turn (need to make sure my appmts are scheduled in the afternoons on weekdays). Dr Irene Chua greeted me like I was the only pregnant woman in the world and it made me feel so good! I told her about my experience in Thomson and she seemes very surprised. I guess I was just one of the unlucky ones la huh.
Dr Irene then told me that she will try to scan from my tummy. I was pretty confident that we won’t be able to see anything because I am only a few weeks pregnant and I thought I have to do a vaginal scan again (which I so do not like!). But hey!! She managed to find my baby! In fact, she didnt need to look for it at all. It was RIGHT THERE. I was so so happy when I saw my baby, but was almost in tears when she told me that that tiny movement was the baby’s heart pumping. FWAH. It was amazing and I remember Ian’s face so clearly when he saw the heart pumping. He must have found it to be a miracle or something because his face light up almost immediately.
How is it that I have so much love for this little thing that is not even developed yet? NOW I know how mothers feel towards their babies. Dr Irene gave me the scan pictures (will scan them & put it up soon!) and was told that baby is at 6 weeks 1 day old. I am due 5th October 2010. Husband told me to hold it in till 10th October 2010. Kelaka kape?
I still have a long way to go and I pray that it will be a smooth journey (with no morning sickness pls?).
I need my sleep now. I havent been sleeping well lately and my body is aching. Yucks I sound so old.
Updated on 17th Feb.
Look at how tiny you are!
SO ANGRY COS I WROTE A LONG ENTRY FROM MY PHONE AND I SAVED IT BUT IT IS NO WHERE TO BE FOUND NOW. ANGRY!
Hi baby. Your nyayi passed away today at 5.30am. It saddens me to know that you won’t get to see him because he was such a cute man.
I guess it is for the better because when I saw him, he was in so much pain that I prayed for allah to help him by releasing his pain either by curing him or taking him away from us for good. Apart of me is glad that he doesn’t need to suffer anymore. When I met him, nana also told him that I am pregnant with you. So he knew of your existence.
See you later tonight, baby.
I can’t wait for wednesday to come cos I will (hopefully) get to see you and check how old you are. I think you might be exactly a month old. :p I didnt realize that it is the same date you were conceived. Haha
I hope you are doing ok in me. Hang in there while I gobble fruits, vegetables, soya bean and milk every single day ya? I hope you are getting all the nutrients you need so far but of course, I have alot to learn and so much to do to ensure that you will be a healthy healthy HEALTHY baby. Insyallah.
Promise me you’ll show yourself this wednesday? Pls?
Hello again baby!
I am having a problem here. I am hosting a live show on friday and I can’t seem to focus on learning my script at all! All I think about is you baby. So weird that nothing else matters now except for you. But maybe that is how first time mummy will feel.
I just want to get the show over and done with and then concentrate on you and my business. There are so many changes we’d like to do to Studiofrost and we really hope that it will work out well. Maybe with your blessings, baby? Rezeki mah…
I have my Ipod ready beside me and I am going to download some applications just for you! I hope you’ll be listening and grow inside me ok?
How are you? I know you are fine because I tested on the pregnancy test kit again just yesterday to check on you. I am such a kiasu mummy you know? If possible, I want to check on you everyday. So I want this next 7 days to pass by quickly. My next check up is on 10th of Feb and I really hope I’d get to see you!
I am checking on you every other day, baby. So stay with me ya? There are so many things I want to do at this point like downloading some nice soothing music and surah(s) onto my Ipod and let you listen to them. But I have been busy these psat few days and just when I have the time to do it today, I realized that I left my Ipod in our warehouse. Tomorrow, I promise! Will be going to the warehouse to pick it up first thing in the morning.
