Happy New Year everyone!! *mesti ada yg tgh menyesuaikan diri nak type/tulis tarikh kan hehe*
My New Year was celebrated at I-City, Shah Alam a new venue for firework enthusiast to enjoy the countdown at my place. Since both husband and I are working in the private sector, we got the priviledge of working half day on New Year’s Eve tp yours truly mcm biasa lebih rela amik full day off rather than spending half a day kat ofis, membazir minyak dan tol je. Baik dok umah basuh baju and ngadap laptop. We went to Sunway Pyramid first in the evening to hunt for maternity clothing, on the way back we made the last minute decision to try out I-City. Ntahla hubby ni mmg dari zaman dia single mingle dia suke beno pegi countdown. I’m more of the TV type of person, tepat midnight kita doze off to lala land. Although it was a long wait for midnight, the 10 minutes firework show was worth waiting (for Shah Alam’s standard).
Yang best minggu ni, dah makin ketara plak rasa movement lil one dlm perut ni. At first I didn’t realise it. Slaluenye akan rasa cam tegang or senak sket kat bahagian kiri or kanan ari² on and off, masa tu ingatkan part of the baby’s movement gak but till a few days back I started feeling bubbles popping inside my tummy. Mcm ada org kentut dlm perut pun ada hehe..pop on the right side, pop on the left side, but most of the time it’s around my belly area. Nak imagine kedudukan baby pun tak reti, coz masa antenatal class the nurse ckp if the baby is kicking on either side of your tummy, you must massage the opposite side of your tummy coz the opposite side is the baby’s back. Ni bila dok pop² kat pusat ni mcm confused plak..aku nak usap tang mana? haha..
Speaking of antenatal class, it was SO WORTH IT! Besides the notes given by the nurse, I jotted down pages of notes myself on many different aspects. The ones I felt most valuable is the lesson breastfeeding and baby care. Little did I know, talcum or baby powder isn’t recommended by paediatricians and nurses. So, jgn la korang tepek byk sgt bedak kat baby’s private part tu..it could lead to asthma as the baby nanti akan inhale bedak tu bila ditepek byk sgt.
The last part of the antenatal class we were given a tour of the ward and labour room. Pergh..suspend jap utk seketika waktu. Coz this will be the room whereby I will bertarung nyawa dgn doctor and husband nanti huhu. Suspend..suspend. Tengok jam tick tock tick tock dalam labour room tu pun dah bikin aku cuak heh. Masa tgk video baby birth tu lagi ler..cringing all the way. Tapi Insya allah, kita mintak segalanya dipermudahkan la ye. So far, my aim is to have a normal, epidural and induce free delivery. Nak try tgk ketahanan diri ni camane dulu. Insya Allah..chaiyok!
