40 weeks and 2 days

Eid 2012: 6 weeks pregnant

It was 3 months after the miscarriage, sooner than i expected but of course warmly and humbly welcomed by both of us. The bell rang when i became forgetful (pregnancy fog brain!) and had severe headache for 2 consecutive days. The first UPT was very faint, in fact i thought it was merely false positive (just 3 days late, d'uh!) The 2nd one was a little bit more convincing but still, it could be false positive.  The 3rd was done more thoroughly with another kit for placebo comparison..hehe, all those kits were courtesy of Secondary Triage (pls dont tell my boss, ok;))

I broke the news to your Abi just 2 days before Eid..then to the rest of the family members. Cik Da and Cik Ha were getting curious when your Abi stopped me from jumping around when we all gathered at Tokma's...So, it was a joyous Eid for both of us because of your presence and the first time celebrated together as we were at work the year earlier...

Week 6: Auntie Zila was pregnant as well, yay alhamdulillah. Ok, her EDD was just a day earlier than mine.LOL. At work, I could function as usual but i still had to settle for Ranitidine/Maxalon/ drip during one morning shift.

Week 7:  Went to Kulim and had family day out with Cik Ha's at AEON Derga and enjoyed Nandos.

Herbalife shakes really helps with morning kick off and Herbalife peach teamix with aloe concentrate saved most of the days from morning sickness. I was really grateful for the change from previous experience. The first scan on 4/9/2012 at PAC and later on went to register 'kad merah' at KK Jitra

Week 8: I had to go for my 1st antenatal check up alone as your Abi had to work..and yes, i sulked for 2 days for that reason. The truth is, i was having de-javu from my previous loss =( Good news was my energy level still good despite mild morning sickness, even my colleagues made noticed it.

Week 9-11: I did my own weekly ultrasound in the greenzone consultation just to make sure there's heart beart. Paranoid much , huh..
Week 12: Rainbow Nite

 Week 11: Tokma, Tokbah and Cikda drove up to Kulim and we had fun with them, trying out Cikda's kebaboomm.
Tagged along Abi to Anaesthetic's Rainbow Nite...ok, i seriously considering putting up 'I am not fat but pregnant' over my tiny baby bump that showed off with the dress.

Week 12: Our first road trip with you to KL for CikDa's was great family time again...managed to meet up with Uncle Brahem and Auntie Fizah over yummy-exotic Middle East cuisine.. The day we return back, we attended our next ANC-could see your heart beat and tiny movement now..

Week 13: The next day i had bleeding but thank God, i didnt panic. I even thought of keeping mum and waited for increasing amount or abdominal pain but senior MO urged to go for check up at PAC. True enough, it was threatened abortion. Offered 2 weeks MC by O&G colleague but I thought  1 week would do, hehe (baiikkk je kan?) . And oh boy, how sleepyhead i became and bedtime became as early as 9pm..

Week 14: Now let's say Hello to Bio Oil  (stretchmark alert!) I hadn't noticed any actually but strongly believed that prevention is always better than cure. The only complaints were heartburn and bloatedness

Week 15: another self-ultrasound with Auntie Fid, could see your hand resting on your cheek. You're so active inside! By now, i swear by Herbalife shakes and Aloe Concentrate to help with my indigestion

Week16: Auntie Liyana's wedding (and funnily enough, the bride is not in the picture)

Week 16: Bigger (and more noticeable) bump with accompanying pelvic pain. Made a trip to KL to attend Auntie Liyana's birthday. Then a quick stop at IKEA and shopping for maternity pants..

Week 17: Toodles morning sickness (yey..!). Another round of ANC scan together with your Abi went well. Now, it's craving for durian..heheh..could easily eat a few in a go...

Week 18: Herbalife's  event in Bukit Gambang
Week 18:  Was it someone just passing gas from inside??! hehe..Another road trip to Kuantan for Herbalife's Changing People's Lives at Bukit Gambang Resort. That marked my 6th years with Herbalife. The next day we were joined by Tokma, Tokbah and CikDa..paid visit to Tokbah's friend and stayed overnight at our relative's..

Week 19: ok, quickening dated 28/11/2012..a tiny knock from inside telling me about your existence..cute!

Week 20: Went for detail scan and was given a chance to see you via're comfortably resting on your 'bestfriend' (placenta). Alhamdulillah, the report from the detail scan didnt show anything to worry about. Celebrated our 2nd anniversary, 031210...a simple dinner of Chinese cuisine at Holiday Villa Hotel. 

Week 21: Our first balik kampung since Eid fiesta as usual and received a few jubah from Tokma to fit this expanding waistline...

Week 24: Home..

Week 22: Family visit from Tokma, Tokbah and Cikda..I was busy running errand. We also decided to buy a house which was 3 units away from our current rented house.Alhamdulillah, it was a good decision for i love the neighbourhood, the spacious frontyard and its closeness to most facilities..

Week 23: Emergency leave during CNY because your Nenek fell sick. She was admitted to Hosp Machang and later transferred to HRPZ . It was tiring going back and forth to the hosp but as blessing in disguise, more family time with CikHa's ;)

Week 28: Trip balik kampung for solat hajat, both at your Abi's and Ummi' was a simple event attended by close family members..went for Burger King's at KB mall, a good substitute to Mc'D.

Week 29: We went for the usual ANC.You now weighed 1kg As always, i would remind my O&G colleague not to bother about your gender because we want it to be a suprise...but 95% of family and friend guessed that you're gonna be a girl!
Week 31: Langkawi Trip

Week 30: Langkawi trip with your Abi, Aunty Zila and Aunty TJ, a long awaited trip for the girls. We were housemates back in Evelyn St, Melb. For 2 days 1 night stay, we went from laksa at the airport( ohh, highly recommended for its great background seaview and treat to the tastebud) to shopping mall to Bamboo restaurant (another highly recommended eating outlet, pls try their blackpepper beef) to Haji Ismail Group. I bought chocs and surveyed for Corelle .
Week 32: KL trip

Week 32: Your Abi was oncall on his birthday so celebration was during our KL was a full-on schedule, tiring but fun as CikDa joined us most of the days.
 Day 1: Bigbad Wolf (crazy dirt cheap books sale!)  then BubbaGump treat at Sunway.
Day 2: Motherhood Expo at KLCC (i went crazy over cutesie rompers and other stuffs for u ) then Mothercare sale at Midvalley. Later met up with Aunty Peah over Tony Roma's
Day 3: IKEA trip for the new house and The Curve for Paddington's Pancake. Visited your cousin, Hannah Khadeeja later of the day and stopped over at Kakcik's crib. That night we went to Auntie Effie's wedding at Dewan Perdana Felda. A fun reunion with my Monash frens.
Day 4: spent time with Ayah Ngah's family then wedding of Auntie Ajla so another Monash reunion..met up Auntie Zarin who's carrying a baby boy with EDD 1 month later than us.

Week 33: Another round of ANC. You weighed 2.45, a spurt of almost 1.5kg within a month's period *gasp* must've been the food feast during KL trip, hehe..

Week 34-37: Waiting game. Filled in the time with laundry and reading books, also last mins online shopping for the feeding equipments and baby book. Your clothes basket and bassinet also ready to be picked up, they're actually hands-down from Abang Aqil.
Week 38: Last ANC check up. You weight remained static 2.6kg..A bit of worry but other parameters were normal. So its still good to go for normal delivery.

Week 40: Herbalife throughout pregnancy, Alhamdulillahh
Week 39: Home for delivery.
