On confinement ~
Apart from food intake, i did the urut and mandi daun2 session for a week. i highly recommend it because u'll feel very fresh and energetic soon after the sessions. In my hometown it cost only rm45 per day. I also bought the confinement set from Leesa cosmetic. You can choose from a number of brands but i prefer Leesa because it's complete! Inclusive of the bengkung and the tungku! Even though i delivered via c-sect i started wearing the bengkung after 3 weeks. The only thing that i didn't really obey was going out hehe. i did go out whenever i need to buy my stuff because my husband is a virgin in buying my stuff hehehehe. He'll spend hours reading the labels :D
I choose to pantang for 60 days and 100 days for iced water, ice cream etc. Why? Saje2..nak jaga badan hehe. After 1 month i managed to reduced 12kg from the total of 19kg i gained. Another 7kg to go, insyaAllah..
On Breastfeeding ~
After getting the pump i put my full effort in pumping especially during my daughter's sleeping hours. My review---- if you plan to breastfeed as long as possible even after going back to work and if you have the extra savings, go for it!! my milk production increased by double, it doesn't hurt at all and it's portable..very2 efficient..one of my best purchase :D Apart from having a good pump, i do take food that could help in increasing milk production such as sayur sawi, lobak putih, horlicks, soy drink, milkmaid tea by Earth Mama Angel Baby and i also drink Enfamama chocolate drink which is delicious! Hopefully the effort could prolong my milk production insyaAllah...soon i am going back to work and i wish to breastfeed as long as possible, plus my daughter drinks a lot!! nak store as much as possible for her :D
Sharing is caring kan kawan2... if ada info saya share lagi ok! maybe about pampers plak kan :)

Until at one point, i couldn't stand it..i was a little scared actually because i've never seen a baby cries like that before. So i told my mum to call her friend to baca2 and urut2 Iris mana la tau it could help a little though i was sceptical about all this urut2 baby thingy earlier on. So this kakak came and urut2 Iris, and to my surprise...Iris calmed down! not a little, but really2 calm ok!! wah, wah...sangat lega i hehe. At first i thought ada momok kacau my daughter ke kan, hehe..tergelak kakak tu bila i tanye mcmtu. It turned out perut my daughter kembong rupenye..the minyak bebiku and telon that my mother used wasn't that powerful enough. So what we did apart of urut2 was, we changed to minyak yuyee cap limau. And it works wonders!! After a series of long and powerful kentutss..she's all good, alhamdulillah.

My sister is in love with Iris..the first one to be by Iris's cot when she makes any noise ;)
As for Mr Husband, i don't think he had any problem adjusting and what not. This is because i have my ummi and sister around who are very2 willing to help me with the baby. So most of the sleepless nights i went through, i find him sleeping peacefully even in the midst of Iris crying on top of her lung! Ada time2 i geram tu, i saje2 la create task for him haha. Suruh amik pampers la, wet wipes la..padahal xjauh mana pon...hehehe jealous la..hmm, even it's tiring, i truly enjoy being a mother..BESTNYEEE!

After the examination, the doc said " good, the baby is very fixed and engaged..and you pon dh masak " hehehe masak tu i guess maksudnye the perineum dah lembut and ready for delivery. The doc suggested for us to be admitted tomorrow evening (Tuesday) and be induced for delivery. InsyaAllah the delivery would be on Wednesday. He planned this because we are staying in Puchong currently and it would take a while to get to Prince Court Med Center. Plus on Wednesday he will be available all day long...so less hectic and no rushing! InsyaAllah....
So to all dear friends and family wherever you are, please pray for me...may it be a smooth and easy delivery insyaAllah. Di sini juga saya ingin memohon maaf di atas salah dan silap saya selama ini..doakan saya dan bayi saya selamat dan sihat sejahtera...Aminnnn....
p/s - doakan suami saya berjaya tanpa sebarang episod pengsan jugak ok..dia sedikit takut and mabuk darah juga adaa hehehe

I didn't feel any pain just yet, just the normal braxton hicks i guess..bahasa i masa ckp dgn doctor is " baby mengeras ada la doc "...hehehe doc pon gelakkan aku ok. dia kate okla tu ikut fahaman u..doc ckp " baby xmengeras la zairul, tu rahim awak preparing for labour "...ooo manela tau kan haha.
Last night before nak tido, i singgah toilet jap seperti biasa, and after peeing i noticed ada sket traces of blood, quite surprised! so i cleaned up and wipe the area with tissue but no traces dah. just that one time. in the morning i woke up pon there's no traces dah. husband called the hospital and asked about this, they said it's normal to have this traces and i don't have to go to the hospital just yet. i just need to monitor if there is more bloody shows and if i feel any contractions. if i do have any of that, then i should go to the hospital. As for now, xrase ape pon lagi..
betul ke i dont have to go to the hospital??

Back to the wishlist issue :) Earlier on, kak mas my good friend cum office mate did asked me to list down the things that i would like as presents..as that was way too early in my opinion, i put it on hold at that time. Then, few days back my Vietnam-clan asked me for the same thing..hmm...looks like it's gonna be a good time this time. Next week i'll start my medical leave starting effectively on Thursday, so the more reason to do it ;)
So here are some of the stuff that i would like for the baby.. (though most of the essential stuffs have been prepared by this to-be mummy and daddy)
1) Baby bouncer/rocker
2) Clip on Mini fan
3) Baby carrier/sling
5) Play mat/play gym
6) Musical mobile
7) Rattle / Toys
8) Baby clothes (variety sizes) / Blankets / Headbands ( well, baby girl kan insyaAllah)
9) Avent ISIS Manual Breast Pump (Eh, this is for mummy or baby ek? hmm both la kan hehe)
P/S : Pictures are for guidance only...doesn't mean that i want the EXACT same thing hehehe

If nothing is to be done to change this office politic thingy, i bet the company will be doomed! seriously...wake up la wahai management!!
~haihh..kenapa la aku berenti keje kat company lama and serah diri kat this company~
Hopefully ada hikmah di sebalik semua ni...

Selamat Hari Raya to all...i know i know, it's a little bit too late to wish...but seriously it has been quite an experience for me this year. The first time puasa being independent in our own house, the first time puasa and pregnant...hmm, there's always a first time right. Being 7 months+ pregnant during the puasa month is delightful and tiring at the same time. I can now feel and SEE the baby moving and making 'ombak' especially at night. surely will make me smile even at the lowest of time. Fasting while being pregnant for me was good, I lost 1.5 kg hehe. Tiring but still manageable. Good baby, thank you for helping mummy to cope with the hunger and thirst, alhamdulillah...we managed to complete the whole one month! i love you so much ;)
Work is treating me like crazy...i am now 8 months++ and as the day to deliver the baby is approaching, i am more worried about my work rather than the delivery. Being in such a volatile state is so so worrying. However, it's a part of life and i need to go through it no matter what. Okla, to lift up the mood a little here are some pictures that can really put a smile to my face hehehe.

The weather here is very2 hot and dry..once we're out of the hotel, the heat will catch up on us. Plus i don't think it's appropiate la for me to wear short sleeve shirt here kan :D While Mr Husband is at the office during the day, i will spend some time studying for my assessment or hop on the hotel shuttle bus to the nearest shopping complex Qurum City Center. It's not a big complex though, but should be enough to shop for our necessities.
Colourful Muttrah souk -- match my outfit too!
During the weekend, one of the local staff invited us to attend his wedding...yeaa, i was extremely anxious to explore the Omanis' culture, especially the food nyum2...i heard their kenduri food is delicious hehehe dalam banyak2 mende, makan jugak mak debob ni ingat! Male and female guests were separated, the men were at the mosque while the ladies were at the house. We were entertained with sexxayy dances by the ladies. There were all kinds of songs accompanying the dances, be it lagu lame or ala2 lagu rap pon ade heheh. Fuhh, seriusly sexxayy, no wonder no men were allowed... or else pengsan beb!!
The ladies with the groom, hensem kan? Btw, the men and women here are seriously good looking...good for my baby hehehe!
See, they purposely wrap the selendang around the booty to emphasize the bootyliciousness..every women even children here can dance really well..syarat2 sah agaknye
The groom's family, they will dress simple like this first, then after eating before going to the bride's house they will change to a more bling-bling abayya' (jubah/dress)
So that's one lengthy post from me.... :D

So back to our topic, our trip was a 2 days one night trip and we stayed in Equatorial because it's really near to our favourite strawberry farm - Raju's!! And also because they have some offer and cost per room was a real bargain. Owh, before i forgot, we brought along Didi (the little girl ummi used to take care) and on the way up to Cameron Highland she vommitted suprising us with a waterfall of milo and nasi lemak, heheheh. Alahai Didi, macam2 la ko ni.
