~Emotional me~

I really do not know WHY???!!~

I cry for every little thing,

I feel really tired even though I'm doing nothing,

I ate a lot lately and continuing eating a lot,

Sometimes, I have a lot of energy to do a lot of the house work around the house

Sometimes, I'm just weak

There are times when I have all the time in the world to rest but my body just refuses to rest. I always want to go out and walk. Doing nothing at home makes the body even more tired.

Whatever it is I think I'm still strong and I know I am. Maybe a little bit scared but I know I can go through this. It is my pregnant hormones(i don't know if this term exist but I'll use it anyway) that makes me do such thing.

My body is exhausted from my daily routine, my back aches, my stomach cramps comes and goes(getting stronger by the day), my baby inside me keeps on kicking as if there is no more space for it to grow, and the contractions sometimes makes it harder for me to even walk or get out of bed, the stomach will harden from time to time(bloated macam ikan butal)..

Are these the signs of labour? I really don't know. This is my first time. What should I expect?What should I do?When is the time I should urge hubby to rush me to the hospital?Is it time?The time is ticking. The anticipation is killing me. Guess I'll just have to wait patiently~

The time will come~

My sincere apology before the journey~

My due date is getting closer though I'm scared of what to come but at the same time I cannot wait for that big day to arrive. All I know is that I might have difficulties in going through this journey but at the end of the day I'll be the most happiest person to see our new member of our family. It will be hubby, me and the baby.

This is an entry to all my friends out there, before I go through this journey I would like to express my sincere apology to all of you. The things that I might have done or said to hurt any of you whether on purpose or not, I truly am sorry for that. Hope you can forgive me.

To all my friends out there please pray for my journey to be a blissful one. Thanks to all that have been giving me support through out. Will keep you guys and gals updated. I still have more or less 2 weeks before my due date. Until then I'll be preparing my self mentally and spiritually for this big journey.

Smile Always =)

Looking into the Mirror~

Last night we received our new furniture..yea!(at long last..). It was our new bedroom set. The set comes with, of course a bed, 2 side tables, a wardrobe and a dressing table together with a stool. The dressing table had a large mirror attached to it which is great because we did not even have a mirror in our bedroom before and only a small mirror which is hung beside an intercom next to the kitchen(I can only see my face in it and not the whole body, plus I'm short and hubby hung it a little bit high for me since he's tall). Since we did not have a mirror in the bedroom I did not have that much time to look myself in the mirror and could not careless how I look like. All I know is that I'm this pregnant women with a belly and that's all. I take mirrors for granted really.

So yesterday was the first time I looked myself in the mirror and saw this huge belly in front of me. I could not believe my eyes as before I only can see the top view. So anyways, it's huge, it's humongous, it's massive. People have been telling me about how huge my belly is but I thought they were exaggerating but now I know that it is as huge as how they said it. I was really shocked and speechless. I stared at the image for quite some time. I just could not believe the size of it. It also made me wonder how my belly can stretch that far out, where did all the extra skin come from? I mean i really had a flat tummy before and now it's bloated..heh..teruk betul..terpana jugak la kejap tengok diri sendiri besar ni besar betul rupanya...or maybe it's because I have a small figure I guess..

The effects of seeing my huge belly is now that I'm feeling a little bit scared. The fear that I had months before came back to haunt me. I kept on wondering whether I can deliver this baby the normal way or by C-section. Owh how I soo wonder how I can give birth the normal way. How eh to push the baby out?..huhue. This is my first time and the fear of delivering a child is quite normal as I don't know what to expect. Feeling scared for that day to come and yet I can't wait for it to come and get it over and done with..hmm. Still counting the days~

Smile Always =)

Many sleepless nights~

Yup as usual and like every other nights I will wake up around 2am to 3am in the morning to go to the toilet and after that getting back to sleep is practically impossible. There are some other nights where I will wake up two to three times just to go to the toilet. Seriously where does all this liquid come from? I don't think I drank that much either. It's good that every time nature calls I Will be awake by it, there are some who just let it out on the bed..hehe..I think..

It is really difficult or rather painful for me to get out of bed sometimes because of the cramps that comes and goes. I have to move really slowly as I don't want to be in more pain and at the same time trying to keep it in until I reach the toilet is quite a task. As people know pregnant women really have weak bladder and also they could not hold it for a long period, so when they feel like they need to go then they need to go..

Talking about last night. As usual went to the toilet around 2.30am then tried going back to sleep..which is impossible because I think the baby is not comfortable and it kept on moving...punching and kicking here and there..I don't know what to do..I kept on tossing and turning trying to get comfortable but i could not and the hot flushes did not help either. I was sweating and the fan is just right in front of me..what an irony..there is also the feeling that I thought I was going to be in labour because of the weird pains that i felt around my tummy and I also waited if there is any signs of me getting in labour such as strong contractions and liquid plus blood coming out down there..until then I did not want to wake hubby as i don't want him to worry too much..thankfully around 3.30am I think I got back to sleep..

And now because of what happened last night, I feel sleepy, tired and at the same time I have a splitting headache..trying really hard to focus until 4.30pm today..I have a strong will to come to work everyday until the day I'm in labour and at the same time my body is telling me to start taking leave because it's getting tired by the day and it needs a lot of rest and sleep..maybe it's time for me to take the leave..what do you think?

I don't want to take my maternity leave early as I want to spend more time at home after giving birth..huhue..I think I can still go to work...hhmm..well people before me did it..why can't I...

Just like to mention, this morning hubby with a happy tone told me about his dream...he had dreamt that I've already given birth to a beautiful daughter named sofeah..kate2 wan "comel betul anak kite, muka macam you..xda muka cam I sangat pon..muka cam you campur dengan muka biena(anak buah die)..".. macam-macam la suami tercinta ni..betul-betul tidak sabar menunggu kelahiran ahli keluarga baru..I'm soo happy to know that my beloved husband is happy and I know that our daughter will be beautiful in every way..Insya'Allah

~MY thoughts before,during and after~

As you might know from hubby's blog, we've just organised our first jamuan raya come housewarming party last Saturday. All we can say that it was a success even though tiring but we had a lot of fun meeting our familes and friends. thanks to all that came bagi memeriahkan keadaan and maaf la ye umah tu besar sangat(me being sarcastic..hehe) not enough to accommodate some..ade yg dok luar pon(wun's friends) and alsodekat pintu dapur(also wun's friends) kesian...

Anyways, these were my thoughts that I would like to share before, during and after the jamuan raya...

BEFORE: Waktu ni lepak-lepak lagi sambil susun-susun makanan atas meja..mandi pon tak lagi dalam pukul 9.30am(lepas tue kelam kabut pi mandi and main capai jer baju sennag utk dipakai, tue yg selekeh sket tue..hee)..first session pukul 10am "Waahhh~ banyak nye makanan ni...ramai ke orang nak datang ni?risaunye..kalau tak habis macam mane..huhue..."

DURING: Ni time second session..1pm..pick hour, orang sume tengah kebulur nih"EH, makanan makin sikit ni..nak buat ape..Alamak! cawan pon dah habis..kene kuarkan cawan dari gerobok ni..Uiiihh, ais pon dah habis...minum air suam-suam je la ye"...maaf!~
(Aku pon dok la keluar masuk dapur basuh cawan orang dah guna dan susun balik atas meja..pheww)

TOWARDS THE END:Dalam pukul 5pm..."huuu, penatnye badan ni..rase macam nk tido jer"..(terlelap jugak atas sofa..nasib dah xde tetamu) Around 6 plus a friend and hubby datang..layan la mereka..

AFTER: Our jamuan raye ended around 7pm but my uncle and family came around 9pm so kene la layan jua..nasib ade my parents kalau tidak pengsan la..penat tue memang tidak terkata..sabar je la..owh forgot to mention that my mom masak nasi tomato pulak untuk makan malam..hehe..mmg makanan byk habis my thoughts after the jamuan "pheww, lega dah abis..esok kene mengemas pula..huhue..nasib byk makanan dah habis kalau tidak kan dah membazir..heh"

So that's all folks..sorry to those that I forgot to invite for the jamuan..insya'Allah if we do it again next year remind me to invite you people k..hehe..~MAAF ZAHIR BATIN~

BPA-free bottles for babies..

Just something that i read from yesterdays the star all mother to be please be aware of this..i've bought MAMs bottles..hehe..which is BPA wise when shopping for newborns as they are sensitive to a lot of things especially with today's environment..better be safe than sorry.. =)

Sunday October 19, 2008 MYT 4:58:00 PM
Canada to ban baby bottles with chemical

TORONTO (AP): Canada has declared a chemical widely used in food packaging a toxic substance and will move to ban the sale in Canada of plastic baby bottles containing bisphenol A.

The toxic classification, issued in Saturday's Canada Gazette, makes Canada the first country to classify the chemical commonly used in the lining of food cans, eyeglass lenses and hundreds of household items, as risky.

The federal ministries of Health and the Environment said Saturday that bisphenol A may be entering the environment in a quantity or under conditions that may pose a danger to Canadians.

Health Minister Tony Clement said a report on bisphenol A has found the chemical endangers people, particularly newborns and infants, citing concerns that the chemical in polycarbonate products and epoxy linings can migrate into food and beverages.

Newborns and infants are particularly vulnerable because of their frequent use of baby bottles that often contain the chemical, which is used to harden plastic and make it shatterproof.

The health and environment departments said Saturday that the government plans to restrict the importation, sale and advertising of bottles made with bisphenol A, known as BPA.

"Many Canadians ... have expressed their concern to me about the risks of bisphenol A in baby bottles,'' said Canada's Environment Minister John Baird in a statement. "Today's confirmation of our ban on BPA in baby bottles proves that our government did the right thing in taking action to protect the health and environment for all Canadians.''

The government is also proposing "to allow the lowest amount of BPA as reasonably achievable in infant formula cans'' and all foods in general. Its risk management plan said it would aim for "stringent'' targets for infant formula cans.

The biggest concern with this widely used chemical, traces of which can be found in more than 90 percent of Americans, has been over BPA's possible effects on reproductive development and hormone-related problems. It has also been linked to cancer in animals.

However, the chemical industry maintains that polycarbonate bottles contain little BPA and leach traces considered too low to harm humans.

"Consumer products made from polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins, including products for infants and children, are accepted as safe for use by regulatory agencies around the world,'' Steven G. Hentges, the executive director, Polycarbonate/BPA Global Group of the American Chemistry Council, said Saturday in a statement commenting on Canada's decision.

The scientific debate over BPA could drag on for years. The European Union and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration say the chemical is safe. But the FDA is awaiting word from a scientific panel expected to deliver an independent risk assessment later this month.

Several U.S. states are considering restricting BPA use, some manufacturers have begun promoting BPA-free baby bottles, and some stores are phasing out baby products containing the chemical.

Wal-Mart Canada and other major retailers in Canada in recent months have begun removing BPA-based food-related products such as baby bottles and sipping cups from store shelves.

So to all momies out there..beli la bottle yang BPA-free ye..list of bottles that i know BPA free adalah MAM, pigeon glass bottles and nuby..Avent bkn BPA free be careful..
Sebenarnya, jika beli bottle yang jenama or dari plastic biasa pun tidak mengapa tetapi kena tukar dengan kerap dan kalau ada nampak scratch pada botol tu cepat2 la tukar sebab dari situ la bahan kimia yang tidak elok leak dalam susu anak...
Anyways, search la lagi ye pasal bottle yang BPA free ni..bukannye ape we just want the safest things for our children that's all..

Smile alwayz =)

Ape lagi yang TIDAK cukup?

Kenapalah kite sentiasa rase ada saja benda yang tidak cukup and tidak pernah atau lupa untuk menghargai ape yang sedia ada didepan mata? Mengapakah pandangan kite slalu dikaburi dengan nafsu? Nafsu dan kehendak kite akan slalu menyesatkan diri, dan membuatkan kite rase tidak tenang dihati. Ada saja benda yang kita mahu. Kita ni bagaikan hamba kepada kehendak diri ini.

Saya sendiri tidak terlepas dari kehendak diri..ada saja kemahuan dan jika tidak dapat mula lah saya rasa sedih dan marah. Suami pula jadi tempat saya lepaskan geram..kesian suami kene pujuk dan bersabar dengan kerenah ini..

Apa yang saya ada sekarang ni sudah cukup sebenarnya dah lebih dari tu kire nak hidup mewah sahaja tapi ialah manusia sering lupa dan sentiasa hendak lebih dari kemampuan dirinya sendiri.

Kepada suami tercinta, terima kasih kerana mengingatkan saya untuk bersyukur dan tidak perlu layan sangat kehendak nafsu.. terima kasih juga kerana mengingatkan saya apa yang saya mahu kerana nafsu adalh tidak baik untuk diriku dan juga untuk anak kita.. Terima Kasih Suamiku.. Saya sentiasa akan beringat selepas ini dan tidak lagi akan meragam macam budak 5 tahun..betul cakap awak "please remember, you're my wife" dan "i'm still your husband"..Maaf kadang2 tue terkasar dengan awak..bukan saya sengaja tapi bile perasaan marah tu timbul suka saja bertindak mengikut perasaan tanpa mengendahkan perasaan awak..

Akhir kata,
Saya sangat bersyukur kerana saya ada suami seperti awak yang cukup bersabar dan sentiasa memberi peringatan kepada saya..bukan semua yang kita nak kita boleh dapat..Apa yang kita ade kita patut bersyukur..

Saya Sangat mencintai awak Syazwan Rahimy dan saya akan sentiasa mengingati pesananmu akan datang..Awak adalah suami mithali dan saya percaya awak juga akan jadi ayah mithali kepada anak-anak kita nanti..Tidak ada benda lain lagi yang saya perlukan cuma kasih sayang dari awak~

~update on mandi wiladah~

Just like to share with everyone what my friend commented on my past post..please2 take this seriously. Thank you soo much to Dur for the info.

dur ni..nk kongsi sedikit ilmu pasal mandi wiladah..harap dpt membantu =)

Memang betul kenyataan tentang 'Mandi Wiladah' itu..... kami telah bertanyakan hal ini kepada ustazah kita orang last month. MasyaALLAH , betapalah jahilnya kita ini.... tapi according to Uztazah ini , kita
memang kena niat dlm hati mandi wajib itu adalah Mandi Wiladah dan tidak boleh kira overall saja.
Sapa-sapa yg lepas bersalin dan belum lagi mengangkat Mandi Wiladah ini maka segala solat & puasanya selama ini tidak akan diterima oleh ALLAH…Nahuzubillah'minzaliq…Wallahua'lam

Oleh itu kita kenalah meminta ampun dari ALLAH S.W.T kerana tidak mengetahui akan perkara ini , kerana sesungguhnya ALLAH Maha Pengampun Lagi Maha Mengetahui. Utk pengetahuan semua, perkara ini telah diajukan oleh saudari kita Ernie Shamsudin semasa sessi mengaji Quran tempoh hari dan disaksikan oleh saya & juga Anisah Ghazi....

Wajib atas kita untuk memberitahu saudara-saudari kita yg langsung tidak tahu akan hal ini.....

Perkara penting yang most women tell you the truth..I've talked to several ladies...and kebanyakkannya semua tak tahu yang there exists mandi after bersalin nie...bukan mandi after darah nifas kering tapi mandi after bersalin..a separate hadas besar...reason being sekiranya ajal menjemput sebelum darah nifas kita kering, kita sudah berada di dalam keadaan bersuci...

Sewaktu dalam sembang-sembang kecil saya merasa agak terperanjat apabila ada diantara ibu-ibu yang mengatakan mereka tak tahu yang mereka wajib mandi hadas selepas melahirkan anak. Ini kerana ada yang confuse, mereka ingat mandi hadas hanya selepas darah nifas habis. Para bapa langsung la sebab mereka kata, bukan mereka yang beranak... MasyaAllah. Kan ke tugas suami tu membimbing isteri..ini perkara Feqah yang wajib diketahui oleh semua orang.

Ada lagi yang kata sebab masa berpantang tak boleh basah rambut, takut masuk angin.

Saya terfikir balik, selama ini saya take for granted dan assume semua orang tahu. kadang-kadang timbul rasa bersalah kerana tidak ambil inisiatif untuk mengingatkan para bapa/ bakal bapa dan para ibu/bakal ibu. Jadi di sini saya nak ambil kesempatan supaya kita ingat mengingati dan kebetulan ramai juga para netters yang sedang menanti kelahiran cahaya mata.

Perkara Wajib mandi hadas besar;

Bagi lelaki 2 perkara:
1. keluar air mani
2. berjimak, waimah berjimak kerana berzina pun kena juga mandi. Tak keluar mani pun kena mandi juga.
Bagi perempuan:

1, Haid
2. Wiladah (melahirkan anak)
3. Nifas
4. Berjimak, waimah berjimak kerana berzina pun kena juga mandi.

Rasanya setakat mandi selepas haid dan berjimak tu semua orang tahu. Yang selalu wanita confuse (apatah lagi lelaki) ialah berkaitan dengan kelahiran. Selepas melahirkan anak setiap wanita ISLAM kena mandi:

1. Mandi hadas kerana melahirkan (WILADAH. Yakni, sebaik sahaja kepala bayi keluar.
2. Mandi hadas habis nifas (darah yang keluar selepas bersalin) maka diwajibkan mandi hadas.

menurut ustazah, niat mandi boleh pakai satu sahaja, tak perlu spesifik. Cuma niatkan:

'Sahaja aku mandi hadas besar ke atas tubuhku yang diwajibkan ke atas ku kerana Allah Taala'.
Tula saya teringat orang tua-tua kita tak kasi org dalam pantang tu mandi basahkan kepala, takut masuk anginla, sejukla... saya terfikir balik, takkan suruhan agama sanggup diketepikan semata-mata nak jaga pantang. Lagipun mandi wajib selepas melahirkan tu SEKALI je setiap kelhairan..katalah anda seorang yang betul-betul kuat berpantang.. dalam masa 40/60 hari tu, cuma sekali je mandi basah rambut, bukan tiap-tiap hari Mandilah dengan air panas... kita tak suruh mandi dng air sejuk.. cuma pastikan air tu tak jadi air musta'mal. Itu sahaja.

Jadi, bakal ibu dan bakal bapa, harap tak ambil remeh perkara ini. Yang lelaki tu ingatkanlah isteri-isteri anda dan adik-adik pompuan. dan yang pompuan tu ingatkanlah diri anda dan sedara-sedara pompuan yang lain..InsyaAllah

Mungkin bagi sesetengah orang yang kata ini soal 'remeh' (walaupun ini sebenarnya tak remeh) dapat dikongsi dan diamalakan bersama.
(senior dur hantar melalui emel)
takecare :)

~take note ya especially if you are expecting a baby anytime soon~

~hubby's future present~

Okies..since I'm no longer searching for baby items on the net or at the shops I've changed my focus to something else.You see, I'm the type that easily gets bored with doing the same things for a period of time and I'll always find interest in other things. Hubby says I'm an all rounder..hehe..

The last thing that we bought for the baby is a hat. We searched every mall there is in Klang Valley(exaggerated it a little bit but part of it is true) for this perfect hat(hubby's the one yang choosy) and we ended up in Subang Parade and bought this nice pink stripped hat from pumpkin patch(similar to this pis but slightly larger stripes and different pink colour shades). Hubby really likes the colour shades from pumpkin patch and he decided to buy clothes for our baby at pumpkin patch in the future.

Back to what i was talking about earlier, I am now moving on to searching dslr cameras. wanna know how it started? simple really, hubby wants to buy me a new phone for my birthday and so i wanted to buy something special for his. He is passionate in music and also photography. so i asked him which present does he want either an electric guitar or a dslr camera which he wanted soo long and guess what, he wanted the camera. He said it'll be more useful for the whole family because he can capture beautiful memories in the future with our baby(so true and i totally agree).

After asking people's opinion and also reading up forums(still reading up) I've resulted in targeting for these cameras but I don't know which one I'll buy yet. It all depends on hubby really. Which ones he likes the best after testing it out at one of the camera shops .hehe. These are the top 3 cameras(for beginners) Canon EOS 4ood, Canon EOS 1000d and Nikon 60d. At first I was interested with olympus but after an advice from a friend for beginners you shouldn't go for olympus because the functions are more complicated..hehe..So staying away from dslr olympus camera. But will buy an olympus compact camera in the future. The canon model said to be a little bit pricey compared to Nikon. But then Nikon is said to have no auto focus, so u have to do it manually(have to find out if it's true or not).
my friends that i refer to for infos about these camera are fakhar and Ikhwan. They are somewhat an expert on cameras. The thing is with them is that Faha will promote Canon because he's currently using Canon camera and Ikhwan will promote Nikon is the best because he uses Nikon. This makes it more difficult. Anyhow, in the end the decision lies in my hubby's hands since he'll be the one using the camera..hehe

Owh and another thing, I need to also survey on good camera shops around as to get good deals at a bargain price with a good quality cameras. There are some shops that sells AP sets aswell, better watch out for those. The shops that I know that will give good bargains is in Sg. Wang(this shop called boeing), Lowyat Plaza, Lot 10 and also at Amcorp Mall(the easiest will be here I guess).

So what I have to do now is to save up for hubby's present as you might know that a dslr camera is not that cheap at all.The lowest price you can get is around RM1.4k. But that's a secondhand item and sometimes they only sell the body without the lens. Targeting to buy him a new one. Atleast it comes together with a manual and also a warranty. Hubby just wants me to buy a cheap one for him but from my opinion 'dah alang2 nak beli tu baik la beli yang betul2 bagus dan ada quality biarpun kene bayar lebih sikit atleast puas hati'. Wish me luck ya~.

~Me and Raya~

About last night, me, wan, mak(mother in law), sitti and biena went to this open house belonging to mak’s friend’s house auntie yatie for Hari Raya. There were many people as it was a grand open house together with one of auntie yatie’s daughter’s birthday (Anis). I really enjoyed the night because I ate rather a lot of food and the food was absolutely delicious. If I was not pregnant I tell you, I would have walked back and forth non stop to the buffet table. Foods that I ate was slices of lamb, kuew teaw(topped up twice..hehe), 5 mini popia, salad, a little bit of rojak buah, tauhu bakar, fruits, 2 mini plates of kuih raya, and air batu campur. Quite a lot huh. Yeah I know. I was really hungry that night. What surprises me was I ate a lot plus when we got home I still felt hungry. I don’t know why. I guess it’s true when people say pregnant woman do eat a lot and put on a lot of weight. Phew, I guess I’m lucky that I’m small build and if I do put on some weight people barely notice it.

Darah Nifas and mandi Wiladah

Me and hubby are now counting the days for my delivery. We are excited to see our baby but at the same time we are scared that the baby might come out earlier than expected this is due to me having contractions more than usual plus I'm getting weaker by the day. I easily get tired from doing house chores even. I'm grateful to my husband as he helps me around the house and even cooking during days that I could not get up. My breathing problem is getting worse which is not helping. Maybe i need to rest a lot more. I hate the feeling not beeing able do anything around the house and just watch hubby cook sometimes. Kesian pulak kat die, die pon penat jugak. Anyway , today's entry I would like to talk about darah nifas and mandi wiladah.

As I said before that my due date is just around the corner and what is running through my head right now are things like darah nifas(darah ibu bersalin), mandi nifas and also mandi wiladah(mandi kerana bersalin).

Because this is my first pregnancy and i have no experience at all i just google up these topic on the net and this is what i understand from it. if there are anything that i state in this entry that is untrue please2 do correct me and for others who is also like me do not take this entry as a guide for you. please do refer to other sources that is more reliable.

The first thing is darah Nifas. What I understand is that this darah nifas comes out from a womens womb within 15 days after the women have given birth. The blood can come out until 60 days after giving birth. That's the maximum period. If blood comes out from the womb 15 days after giving birth than this blood is no longger called nifas. It is just haid(the normal period women have).

What I don't know or rather I have not found out yet is the hukum for women during nifas period. What they can and can't do. Is it the same as women who is on haid? i mean they can't pray and fast or they can do all of this things but just clean up the blood first then pray?. If anyone has answers for this please do tell.

Then comes mandi nifas. Mandi nifas is just that women have to mandi after all the darah nifas has dried up. It's like mandi after haid basicly. Mandi wajib.

Mandi Wiladah is another thing. Every women who have just given birth or gone through miscarriage should mandi wiladah but the again it depends on whether after giving birth. If darah nifas comes out then the person only need to do this mandi after the blood dried up. Meaning mandi wajib sekali jer la kan. Ni saje byk pulak terms. I think. But if i'm wrong please do correct me.

This is all that i know now. I need to read up more and also ask around regarding this topic plus the hukum. Tak nak la nanti salah buat ke ape kan. If you do have any extra information that you can share with me please do share k. Jangan kedekut ilmu. Tak baik tau..hehe
