My Bee-Day

Special pose with my 2 lil heroes on my bday :)

Last 33 years today I was born here in Kampung Padang Kala, Kota Bharu, Kelantan. My
bday this year is 'special & meaningful' in a way that I have been blessed with 2 lil adorable heroes to light up my life (no cake, candles, flowers or candle lite dinner though..but I had my fav nasi dagang for my breakfast)

On top of bday wish smses from my siblings and dear friends, co-incidently, there were quite a number of my relatives came to pay my baby a visit,
plus my friend Qawy with his wife, lil baby and his mom-in-law; so my bday is not
that lonely..

Baby Gift from my friend Qawy

On my bday today, I wish and pray that my life would always be blessed with happiness and success in everything that I do, plus good health & wealth for me and all my beloved ones, Insya Allah, Ameen.

Challenges of BF

My Ariff is 13 days today...I'm a lil bit upset with myself as I have not succeeded in breastfeeding him naturally..but I have been trying hard since day 1..the best that I can do for my beloved baby is to express my milk few times a day for my lil baby - manually and using AVENT breast pump (bought urgently last week with the help of my bro-in-law who is working in Metrojaya)...

I hope I would be able to breastfeed Ariff I breastfed Zharfan till he was one and half years old ;)

My lil baby has been receiving money and gift from relatives :) Thanks to all :) I would use the money to buy insurance premium (Takaful Siswa)for Ariff , just what I did for my Zharfan :)

Presenting…my lil prince – AHMAD ARIFF SHAH

I was admitted at 9 am on 15th April 2009, but my gynae only came to examine me and put in some medicine/drug in liquid form (dunno what’s the name) to induce the labour at 12.55 pm. At that time, my cervix opening was 2 cm, and the doctor promised to gimme the epidural once the opening is 3 cm..
I had to lie down on the bed…waiting for the contraction to start…it did start after an hour…and becoming intense by 4 pm..I managed to perform my Zohor & Asar prayers…and at 4.20 pm, my hubby arrived from relieved to know that he will be beside me during the labour, coz he wasn’t around when I gave birth to our Zharfan 4 years back..

The doctor came to examine me again at 4.30 pm, and she was a bit surprised to learn that my cervix had opened 7 cm..and no epidural for me ( I was a bit irritated- pity me, that day there were so many labour cases – I’m the 5th case for that particular day)..A nurse quickly pushed me to the labour room, put me on CTG, prepared whatever necessary, and here I am, ready to push the baby anytime…

The contraction pain became unbearable..I cried my eyes was totally beyond mom was beside me all the time, while my hubby was in and out the labour room while taking care of our Zharfan…

And finally, when my cervix opening reached 8 cm, there came the urge to push, and my lil baby was out by the 2nd push, exactly on 6.21 pm…Alhamdulillah…
My hubby managed to snap some pics the early moments of our baby’s arrival.. Our lil boy weighs 3 kg.

I stayed overnite at the ward, and was discharged the following day in the afternoon.
So I’m in confinement now..under the loving care of my mom..

Induced labour @15th April 2009

I guess this gonna be my final posting before I give birth...

I was attending my regular ante-natal check-up yesterday morning (with the hoping that this ANC is gonna be the last one before the delivery)...and few unexpected things turn up - that includes:

-my weight had reduced for 1.3 kg compared to last week (whereas I have been eating quite a lot while at kampung..)
-the reduction of weight is actually the result of the lessening of my amniotic fluid (could be dangerous to my baby's growth) which transpired during the ultrasound session done by Dr Lily <-- my gynae

-My lil baby's weight is now 3kg, compared to last week he only weighs 2.7 kg
-Dr Lily suspects that I've started to have irregular/mild contraction, so she sent me to the labour room to do the CTG (Continuous cardiotocography)!!
-After the half-an-hour CTG done, Dr Lily gave me ad advice that I have to undergo 'induced labour' - and finally I chose to have it on 15/4/09 morning..

So now, anxiously counting the hour...though this is my second experience if giving birth, but still the inevitable feeling of worries, scare and mixed feelings keep on lingering on my mind...Prayfully everything is gonna be smooth like my first delivery..Insya Allah..
To all my dear friends, please pray for me...

To my lil baby in tummy

My tummy is getting bigger day by day...but the time has yet to come for my lil baby to come out to see this be with Mama, Papa and 'abang Zharfan'..

So, here is a poem for my lil baby....we really2 hope to see u soon my lil boy!!!

To my unborn child,
what I wish to give you in times to come,
happiness, and wisdom, a life filled with fun,
to explore all adventures of your curious mind,
to become knowledgeable of what you'll find,
as I await your arrival and the presence of newborn cries,
I picture how you'll look when I open up my eyes.

I feel your movements every time I wake each day,
letting mommy know that you’re okay,
obstacles I hope you'll overcome,
education I know you'll get done,
I stay up late reading to you,
talking to my stomach, a feeling I never knew,
hungry all the time 'No doubt you're a son of mine',
You make me feel happy even when I'm sad,
because the formation of another life makes me glad.

Proud of you I am, I already know how you'll be,
a smart 'lil' man for mommy to see,
no worries from me a mom to be,
to a special baby boy I can't wait to see.

Life without internet?........emmm…

I couldn’t connect to the tmnet dial up yesterday, and the problem persisted until this morning…so I called up Telekom helpline #100…The staff is very helpful & friendly…Thanks God, the problem is solved now ;)

For me, life without internet…emm…feeling like something is missing…
So this morning, I quickly do my emails checking ( I have 2 official emails +, and one yahoo a/c & one gmail a/c)…

Then surfing my fav sites, blogs….which includes

And, that puts a smile on face again, to learn that I (and my hubby’s name as well) is among the 80 winners for the contest MyMesra-Gas Petronas Caption…the prize is soooo sweet ie Big Apple Donut Vouchers! And the other good part is, MyMesra does courier the prize to winners, so no hassle for the prize collection. Thanks MyMesra!!
Anyway,never try this Big Apple donut (though I do love Dunkin Donuts..) so looking forward for the Big Apple then...

In the afternoon, I 'force' myself to start continue working on my thesis...

so I just did some warm up & kickstart the writing...emmm...working on the thesis at home needs a STRONG determination indeed...I MUST do my supervisor from UK is coming over to Msia middle of June to see my progress - that means rite after my confinement..*sigh*

Quiet life in kampung...

I have been in kampung since the last Thursday...and i gonna be here for my whole confinement period..

The life here is very quiet, serene...the weather is not as hot as in KL, as it rains almost every day or alternate day...

Thanks God, I still have my internet connection via tmnet dial-up, at least I can still check my emails regularly, surfing some of my fav sites..and keeping in touch with my buddies & friends (to Ayu, thanks in advance for ur help with the prize collection yer..)

Well, my contest-related activity would be slowed down and eventually halted during my confinement..but Alhamdulillah, luck still shines for this month - April - so delighted to win some goodies in cinemaonline confession of shopalics contest, conso for supastrikas/castrol-utusan, conso for Biore's contest, and ipod Nano from KLM contest - heartiest gratitude & congrats to jing2 for KLM achievement!!

Coming back to my life at kampung..yesterday, I went for antenatal check up at KBMC- Kota Bharu Medical Centre (where I have made reservation to deliver my baby there)..Dr Lily confirms that baby is ok & healthy (now weighing apprx 2.7kg), so just waiting for the right time to deliver...may be on the due date like my Zharfan, the last 4 yours..

This morning, my hubby left for KL...leaving me & Zharfan at kampung...he's gonna come back when our lil baby comes out..soon..Insya 2 weeks time hopefully...
