AIF ! ... 16 Weeks

Alhamdullilah, Its a Friday...

entah kenapa, feeling layu nah niari. Rasa rindu sangat pada anakku yang tersayang. Hanya hati seorang Ibu yang berkerja sepenuh masa sahaja yang boleh memahami perasaan ku. Kalau lah aku boleh dapat balik sekarang, akan ku lari balik untuk memelok anak ku.
Semakin nak dapat adik, semakin manja si Little Habib ni...Sekarang kalau tidur, mesti di atas badan ku, sakit jugak rasanya kalau perut ku dihempap....


haha..ok ok...what am I babbling?? ...seriously I miss my boy! .... he is turning 2 very soon and getting smarter. Eh cepat eh 2 tahun...rasa macam it was just yesterday that DR Heng told me that baby will be induced out and I panicked. Come to think of it, inducing went well for me.

Little Habib can form 2 words sentence like " Abah Car " or " Cut Hair " or " Go Park "...alahai..I guess this is the cute stage.... he also loves playing his toys.... pagi/petang/malam toys ..... and dah senang nak bawak dia keluar cos he can tell us he wants to mamam ( makan ) or Bumbum ( sleep ) or Yak ( pass motion ). I have been cuddling him alot, so has hubby... entah eh.. maybe cos we feel that once the baby comes ( Insya'allah ), less attention will be given to our little Habib?

I wonder what its gonna be like..being a mother of 2 little kids ? Hmm ......

I hope to breastfeed my 2nd one too. I pray that some members of my family will support breastfeeding and not secretly give my baby Formula milk when Im asleep!!!

Also praying it will be easier for the baby to sleep at night since little Habib only learn to sleep at night after nearly 3 months after I gave birth, just before my maternity leave ended. Alhamdullilah....I hope to be able to handle the baby more independently like bathing it. When it was little Habib's time, my mum bathed him for the first 2 months..I did try once in a while...

Need to make lots of Doa lah, I better start on that soon. For now, Ive been praying for a smooth natural delivery, again without epidural or c-section..Me is really scared of needles, I'd rather tahan the pain....well Allah (swt) knows best......

Alhamdullilah, Ive hit 16 weeks. Gynea check up on Wed nite confirmed the sex of the baby. Alhamdullilah... aku bersyukur. We roughly have an idea of the name. I'll dedicate one post on that later on.. Choosing names are so fun..

I wonder if its too early to buy infant/baby stuff... we have an idea of which pram we want. I think I would need to get:

- breast milk storage bottles and a milk warmer. My Madela pump should be still in working condition. Have to try and plug it in and see if the engine works or not. Hmm what else....
- Tukang Urut ( Must get contact from Ummu Mukhtaar )
guess I need to write a list of what I need for the baby and also stuff like things to pack in maternity bag... gosh, Im going through this phase again.. It feels so funny and nice.

Gynea says my baby is doing well. She took my blood test, the compulsory one... I wont be taking the Down Syndrome Test ( nauzubillah ) or the foetal scanning at East Shore Hospital. Trying to save money and so we Tawakkal. I didnt take it for Little Habib's time too.

2nd Trimester. Headaches / Migraines seems to be gone. Nausea gone. Appetite big. ( i wonder how will it be comes Ramadhan ).
Current discomforts are terrible back aches ( might be getting a support belt ...maybe ), Incontinence ( irratating when I have wudhuk ), Sleepy ( wish i can just sleep and sleep like sleeping beauty...hee )

I keep thinking of the future..what is it gonna be like, having to divide my attention to 2 children. Hmm Insya'allah... hope me and hubby can manage. Hubby seems to finally welcome this baby. He's been talking to me about how our challenges will be like and how we can try and cope and how he hopes this baby looks like him too !
Ehhh no fair lah, bagi lah chance, since Little Habib looks like him kan.. hehe... Tapi takpelah, asalkan sihat, soleh , taqwa , bijak ....

*smiles*

Oklah, its after 2pm. Im gonna make my way to the masjid for zohor...

Love you baby. Ummi.love.you..... ; )

Salaam to you,

1. I will give you the pack of breastmilk storage bags that I didn't use.
2. Next year, while you file for the tax, remember to file for Parenthood Tax Rebate(PTR). Can get the details from IRAS website.

Wassalam

Salaam dear,

I can't wrap my limited brains around the idea of having two kids, spoilt brat that I am..! ;p

Let me see, is there anything that you need but don't mind second hand stuff? Maybe if you already come up with the list of things, I'll see if there's anything we can let go on our side. I have BM storage bags too, but they're two years old, so I'm not sure they're ok to give you eventhough belum bukak. Hee..

Anyways, take care of yourself! Banyakkan rest and positive thoughts ;)

Salams sis,

does the support belt really help? I've been having horrible backaches espescially when i'm in bed, but its not possible to wear this belt when we're sleeping right?

Congrats on finding out the gender of your baby :) Now can start all the shopping and visualising the baby already.

Salaams,

Sis Nor: congrats on yr new car..v big hor, how do u drive that monster? hee... thanks for sharing my joy..makes me blush in glee...!doakan eh...

Ummu Nabil: I have been imagining whats its like..Im sure it will be hard to adapt but there will be happy moments im sure...
Yes yes, I need 2nd hand stuff..I was eyeing Nabil's Baby Cot and Infant seat tapi tak terbukak mulut ni, in the end not my rezeki..haha.. ok takpe, anything else u dont need, chuck it to me okie...syukran...

Sis Banun : wish I can go for the Halaqah but I have to take care of my son on weekends so I think I have to stick to kuliah at the masjid now...at least I can bring him along ... thanks for the invite..I did read at Sis Muna's blog too... sedih tak dapat join, tapi Insya'allah like i told Sis Muna, I hope to be one of her students 1 day...

Yes kak..its Dr Heng Tung Lan from East Shore..she's really nice to me, friendly...but have heard bad comments abt her from baby forums..but so far, I am totally at ease with her...she's my aunts good friend by the way, so maybe thats why she looks after me well.

Sis Kami : yeah now I can start shopping but I think I will only start later when Im ard 7mths in Oct maybe...
My friend is lending me her support belt..she says it didnt really help.. yeah, u can use it when u sleep....but its v hard and heavy..i wonder why they call it support belt huh...??!
