MyLO check up

We just came back from the regular check up. and am so glad that everything's fine. and the blood test was also fine, except for some need for hemoglobin. other than that i'm hepatitis '-'ve and immune from rubella. balanced sugar level n good blood pressure. i was worried that i need to be immunised today. hehehe...gosh those needles scare the h*ll out of me!

Baby's heartbeart, size n weight are fine. talking about weight, here some records so far on my weight:

6w+: 43.3kg
11w+: 44.5kg
14w+: 45.7kg

(mcm ader pattern kan? each check-up naik 1.2kg). Goodlah, DTB said. to which i replied "Hon, this is my weight in Bahrain with my so healthy balanced diet. nanti balik Malaysia, i don't know how". no ultrasound today. just listening to MyLO's heartbeat from the doppler. the next ultrasound will be in the next 5 weeks, and by then hopefully we will know baby's gender. either it's gonna be MyLOG(girl) or MyLOB(boy).

Maybe Sorry Is The Hardest Word To Say

Maybe i was too emotional.

Maybe this hormonal changes make me a different person.

Maybe i'm expecting too much.

Maybe sometimes what work out for others does not work the same for us.

Maybe they are just lucky to have theirs.

Maybe i should not be here in the first place.

Maybe sorry is really the hardest for to say. At least for someone like you!!!

**P/s: don't ask me why is this post sounds so emo. i'm 'drying' my eyes at the moment and i can't think straight. i just wanna be somewhere else.

Danish The Menace

I was on gtalk, chatting with my 2nd elder brother, Julian last night. normal stuff siblings talk about. he updated me on his kids progress. especially on Farish who is gonna turn 2 this tuesday. Farish knows how to ride a bike already and his is physically 'huge' that he doesn't look like he's just 2 years old.

we ended the chat around 2.30am Malaysia time cos he needs to sleep, obviously. suddenly i feel like i'm missing my nieces and nephews. i have 6 of them from 2 brothers (Valen - bro1: Anazthacia Daphne Dau [5], Allycianna Suting [2], Adam Vaynerson Jau [9mths] and Julian - bro2: Mohd Danish [4+], Nur Allysa [3+], Mohd Farish [1+]). But this entry will be about that naughty bubbly Mohd Danish or Dennis or Nanish (by Farish).

See, these kids talk in Malay and they call most of their uncles and aunts as PakX and MakY. I'm being called 'Ubok' as in 'Girl' in my native language. So, my character will be Mak Bok (don't laugh!! *_*)


Danish: Mak Bok, mana uncle 'saye'?
Me: Uncle 'saye'?
My mom: Uncle Dennis lah, Nis.


We were in my hotel room in Miri.

Danish: Wow...bestlah KL ni!!
Everyone in the room were laughing out loud. one, for the fact that we are actually in Miri still and two Danish has never been to KL yet!!


Danish: Papa, lepas ni Danish nak pegi KFC lah.
Papa: Tak payahlah, Farish kan masih kecil
Danish: Ok
Then, announced to the whole house;
Danish: Papa saye kata, nanti kalau Farish sudah besar baru kami pegi bercuti di SingaPUYA!! (as in Singapura)
I was laughing like nobody's business on this one!


Danish: Danish nak beli kereta sport lah.. (this boy has obsession with sport cars)
Me: Danish ada duit tak nak beli?
Danish: Ada. Papa Danish banyak duit, sepuluh ribu (all fingers up)
Me: Bagilah Mak Bok sikit. Mak Bok kan takda duit
Danish: Ok, Danish bagi Mak Bok dua ribu (3 FINGERS UP!!)


Kids are just cute and how i wish they stay bubbly as they are. But, they'll grow up in no time. I'm gonna miss them asking me to just go to the atm and get some money when i tell them i have no money to buy them bicycles. They think that the bank will give you the money, all you need to do is ask!!! don't you think they are cute?

Danish is the one with yellow stripy shirt. with him are his sister, Lyssa and brother, Farish.

One thing that i miss so much

We, that was moi and DTB was talking about how fast our lives is changing within the first half of this year of rat. I was telling him "i'm still not done browsing thru our wedding photos. and, in between that, my mind flopped to that little bunny in the belly". And notice that few months back i was putting a poll on the sidebar on the honeymoon destination, now that has gone? on hold, that is. but MyLO, don't get mommy wrong. you're so very much longed for.

Some of my friends were telling me that i am lucky to be able to enjoy full time housewife thingy. well, i tell you what? I NEVER ENJOYED IT AT ALL!!i miss my corporate suit. i miss dressing up for work in the morning. i miss Vision Excel. i miss corporate lunch or friday evening margarita along Jalan Sultan Ismail. i miss my monorail ride from Tun Sambanthan to Bukit Nanas and sometimes stop at Bukit Bintang or Imbi. i miss being 'kay poh chee' with the secretaries. i miss preparing those reports for management meetings. to sum it up, i miss my working life. i can't wait to be back in action, which only God knows when.

To quit my job was the most difficult decision to make since i have been working ever since i graduated. well, when you get married and have to leave the country to accompany your other half, i guess the decision is not yours alone to make. i told DTB that since i'll be going back for MyLO's arrival, i suggest i'll just stay in KL and get back to my career life. and dang!! how about that little MyLO? Mommy's working, Daddy's abroad. Ahhh...i guess it no more about what i want now, its what works the best for the family. we'll see if DTB agrees to move back to work in Malaysia, then we'll decide.

So not cool!

This entry might be a little bit disgusting. But, always think that this blog serves as my diary as well. especially during my pregnancy.

It all started yesterday's evening. i had the urge to pass 'big water' - translate to malay -. first round (ha...mmg ber'round2') i spent almost 1hr and a half just to find that i was actually constipating. that was the 'hardest' push i've ever had i my life so far. yet, no success. "ok,takpe" i told myself. later then.

then, 2nd round. after about 15mins and after i went to the kitchen downstairs to get some milk and coco crunch. in case it helps. i was so frustrated that the outcome was no different from the 1st round. being a catholic, i am used to put that sign of cross when i'm in trouble. i did that too this time!!! and this time it was getting worst that i actually sobbed in the toilet. all i have in my mind was my mom. i was sobbing so badly that DTB panicked when i entered the room. sakit montot ok!!i told him that i'm not ok. and mcm biasa, i was told to go to bed and think of something else. which i did after tossing and turning for almost 1/2 an hr.

until this morning at 3am. i had the 'call' again. not giving up are we? it was so uncomfortable that all i want to do was to get 'it' out of my a*s3!!fuh, this time siap berpeluh sejuk. that i took of my shirt and yes, i went topless in the 'fight'. but no, it was not sexy after all. and this time, i was so in pain that i had the strength to flush it out. again, i did make the sign of cross again. pardon me, Lord. barulah bowel rasa lega sikit tp montot sangat sakit sekarang ni. and i'm trying to get back to sleep. it's friggin 3.52am here.

Something about constipation during pregnancy that i managed to browsed thru before after the 1st round:

*courtesy of

Constipation occurs when there is abdominal pain or discomfort, difficult and infrequent bowel movements, and the passage of hard stools. Unfortunately, constipation affects approximately half of all women at some point during their pregnancy.

What causes constipation during pregnancy?

In general, worry, anxiety, minimal physical exercise, and a low-fiber diet may cause constipation. Constipation in pregnant women is thought to occur due to hormones that relax the intestinal muscle and by the pressure of the expanding uterus on the intestines. Relaxation of the intestinal muscle causes food and waste to move slower through your system.

Sometimes iron tablets may contribute to constipation. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water if you are taking iron supplements. You may need to switch to a different type of iron tablet, but it is important to talk to your health care provider first.

How can I prevent or treat constipation during pregnancy?

Prevention and treatment of constipation involve much of the same thing. Here are a few things that you can do to help prevent constipation from occurring or treat it if you are already experiencing it:

* Eat a high fiber diet: Ideally, you will consume 25 to 30 grams per day of dietary fiber from fruits, vegetables, breakfast cereals, whole grain breads, prunes and bran.

* Drink a lot of fluids: Drinking plenty of fluids is important, particularly with your increase of fiber. Drink 10 to 12 cups of fluids each day. It is the combination of a high fiber diet and lots of liquid that best help you eliminate your waste. Sweat, hot/humid climates, and exercise may increase your need for additional fluids.

* Exercise routinely: If you are inactive, you have a greater chance of constipation. Walking, swimming and other moderate exercises help the intestines work by stimulating your bowels. Schedule exercise three times a week for 20-30 minutes each.

* Over-the-counter remedies: There are over-the-counter products such as Metamucil (Catergory B) which may help soften your bowel movements and reduce constipation. Always speak to your health care provider before using over-the-counter medications.

* Reduce or eliminate iron supplements: Iron supplements may contribute to constipation. Good nutrition can often meet your iron needs during pregnancy. Taking smaller doses of iron throught the day rather than taking it all at once can reduce constipation. Talk to your health care provider about checking your iron levels and recommendations to manage iron intake during pregnancy.
