Confession of a Mommy-to-be

5 Jul

It is really a surprise! oh well, Allah knows best. and so now I am about 8 weeks pregnant! can you believe it?? I dont. Haha. So since this is my first time having this experience I feel like I should make a journal about it so it can be my reference in future or maybe it can be your reference as first timer. What I am gonna write is wholly my experience..I know nothing much about being pregnant neither do read much on it, so i just go with the flow, do whatever is right. and also i dont just jump into what people say things that should n shouldnt we do during pregnancy, I usually do some search about it and analyze whether or not their sayings is true. i usually trust science and research more 😉

My pregnancy chronology:

1. A week before i was suspected pregnant (14 – 20 May 2012)

a chocolate spot was spotted and i thought it was my period time. so i applied the pad and assumed it was that time of the month. BUT surprisingly, that was the only time the spot was seen and no red liquid was seen either. so i mandi wajib as it wasnt that time of the month yet.

Waking up the next morning, I spotted the chocolate spot again, then did the same thing as the day before but it was another false alarm. so after that i just waited for my actual period schedule to confirm whether it was the time already.

anyway, since i hit puberty, i havent had problems with my period cycle. It has always been on time, if it does change, only for 1 or 2 days, no later than that. so i started to sense something was fishy but just ignored it at that moment.

Oh and on friday that week, I enjoyed my 2 hours weekly futsal with my futsal mates as usual and it was good to be back on the court!

2. During Scheduled Period Time (21- 27 May 2012; period day should be on 23rd)

Oh well, as you can expect it was late on day 1. I still felt fine with it since my period sometimes late 1 or 2 days..or maybe 3. so I hadnt jumped onto the conclusion yet. waited until day 4 and it hadnt come out, i started to freak out and asked my doctor sister about it. she said, oh maybe youre stressed or change of lifestyle make it late a bit. but i told her, as stress as I am, my period hasnt been 4 days late. I wasnt actually planning to have a baby at this time but you know, we only plan, but Allah decides when is the best time. I am not regretting, I was just surprised. and so during that 4 days, there was actually one time that I had a headache like migrain that i thought because of the hot scorching weather. Honestly, I have never had any headache (unless lambat tidur, itu pun minor) before.

I wrote my name as usual for futsal that friday but the headache make me cancelled it at the very last minute. I thought it would be ok after i got home, but i wasnt. So to calm me down, Saiful ‘guasa’ -ed (a chinese massage using bull’s horn piece) my head for few minutes and the headache finally relieved. Then we discussed what was happening but still hadnt gone into the conclusion since there were no other major signs appeared – like vomitting and bloated feeling.

To clarify what was going on, we started asking people who had experience pregnancy before and explain to her what i had felt and they said I was probably pregnant but they advised to test after a week I miss my period.

3. On the Pregnancy Kit Test (24 May 2012)

Saiful bought the most reliable kit at watson to confirm on my pregnancy and the day i peed on the kit was when he had gone to work. I was really nervous not just to wait for the result but to pee on that thing for the first time and i was afraid i would screw it. while waiting for the result, many things running through my mind. if this is it, what should i do next? if it isnt, should i be sad or maybe happy about it? seriously it was the longest few seconds i had to wait. and tadaaaa!!! positive it was..I have the picture but it is in other phone later i will put it here..

I dont know what to feel at that moment. seriously i was just stunned. Then it struck me, now I have a responsibility to bear. a MASSIVE one, not just to bring a human being into this world, but to raise and shape him to be a great person/hamba Allah. I am not denying the fact that I was stunned because I thought I wasnt ready to be a mom, but I was taught to be responsible, so I will take good care of this baby and insyaAllah will raise him as good as I can.

After all those drama in my mind, I text messaged Saiful to inform him the news. And of course he was ecstatic about this and that very evening after i fetched him from work, he quickly brought me to the clinic to reconfirm with the doctor. that time it was only 4 weeks and no heartbeat was heard yet so we had to come the next two weeks.

sidenote:

1. part of i being stunned and surprised i got pregnant because i played 2 hours of futsal (man, i ran up and down the court like nobody’s business), the week before i was confirmed pregnant and jumping (few times) for jumpshots (below) a day before i tested using pregnancy kit. this baby might be a strong kid like his mom 😉

2. next post will be about the symptoms i had during my pregnancy this few weeks which i dont think there’s nothing much but i would say it is different from ive heard from other people.

Screw the Title

28 Jun

Oh well, I dont know what the title should be. I just had something to write after so long. Twitter has taken all the fun of writing a blog because you dont have to write long in it. You can just publish anything that comes right to your mind. But technically, if you combine all those posts in twitter, it will become a blog post. As simple as that. Yeah I bet you knew it already.

So what Ive been up to after being married? so many things that I dont think I could cramp it all in here. Lets see if I am persistent enough to write each story in each post (fingers crossed!). And so, where to start? …I dont even know where to start! LOL..ok so lets just make a checklist so that it will be easier to track down. People say if you keep it in your mind, it will get tangled and in the end you wont bother to untangle it. so here it goes…

1. Life After Marriage

2. Getting A Job

3. Being P.. oh and the list goes on…

Have you been in this situation before? You feel the urge to write back in your old blog then you got stuck in the middle? sighs..I wish I could end this like happily-ever-after story..well, I know Im not a good author but at least I tried..hehe so till then yall!

Restarting

13 Jun

i had the guts to just go out and jog this evening, glad i did that because feel energetic until tonight! havent felt this way for a while..definitely its a new beginning. for those who want to start or restart your jogging routine, just go with it..dont ever think of any excuses..i know its hard to start but when you actually start, you’ll feel motivated and encouraged to do more 😉 so here are some exercise i did. i didnt go too hard as it is my first for this sem, if i pushed harder, i’ll get demotivated and would prolly lazy to continue.

1. walk and stretch a bit before jogging

2. jogging for 6 rounds (time: didnt timed it but it was roughly 15-20 mins) and fast walking 1 round

3. stretch a bit before doing some muscle work out

4. sets of sit ups, leg raisings (for abs) and rinha/queda de rins (a capoeira movement) for upper body like shoulder, arms, abs too i think

– managed to do 2 sets with 10 reps each work out

will prolly do more sets and work out and get better time for jogging after this, insyaAllah. lets do it together guys! oh and Ive put a video of how to do the queda de rins (ke-da ji hins) below for you to learn.

sorry seems to be the hardest word

19 May

ok i know i didnt keep my word..i promised you to keep updating the blog and write my health journal as soon as i got a new lappy but ive postponed it for quite long! heh even my project pn xstart2 lg..im so sorry for the delay. i ll find sometime to update the blog this week!

know what you eat

27 Apr

so the first tip is knowing what you put in your mouth..and it doesn’t stop just there, it will go into your digestive system and finally becomes your flesh and blood. this tip is simple. you just have to differentiate what is good and what is bad for your body. for example, I know junk food tastes good in your mouth but it does nothing good except ruins your system with artificial flavors and all.so know what is good not just in your mouth but also for your body. I understand that you’ve been eating those twisties, cheezels etc since you were kids, but for your body’s sake, you should consider changing to a healthy diet. its kinda hard to change so i suggest do it slowly.i myself took a long time to not eating junk food and it need courage to commit to it so i understand if you still addicted to those fancy food.

from my experience, I started to reduce my junk food takes from everyday to 2-3 days per week. then you find that you can lessen it to once a week, once a month and surprisingly to none at all..well sometimes i do crave for it,so its ok to BEND the rules for a while, but NEVER to BREAK it. you can take it once in a while though. as for carbonated drinks, I myself find it difficult to stop drinking it but before I knew it, I had giving it up  for good. you know, A&W root beer is hard to say no to.at that particular time, I didn’t drink carbonated drinks except the root beer and I wonder why I still couldn’t let it go. so I tried to avoid any A&W franchise if I went out and alhamdulillah the trick worked, I’m no more interested in carbonated drinks, even A&W root beer until now 😉

so there you go my first guidelines for healthy life..it starts with what you eat.
