37th week !

Picture courtesy of Abu Mukhtaar's Flickr...

Alhamdullilah, It was Friday and yesterday was the official opening of MY Beloved Masjid, Masjid Al-Abdul Razak@ Jalan Ismail.

The Jemaah perfomed Solat Jumaat and our Mufti Syed Esa Semait was the Imam. Many Muis Officials were there and at the end of the majlis, the jemaah were served with what else : Briyani Dam!

Hubby took time off from work and attended the event. He was so happy to be there, what with all the briyani and his friends there.
He told me the Masjid is now air-connedified! Wahhhh.... rather advance for a small Masjid Kampung hor...Almarhum Ustaz Ahmad Semait ( May Allah bless his soul ) would have been happy to see this masjid I would think.

ok lets change the topic quickly to the baby stuff ! ;p

The time is drawing near I supposed.

Last night, I had contractions in the car, ( about 15mins interval, mild pain only), while on the way back from the FJC meet up.

I told Hubby, " Maybe....its time...". As usual, he was still Relaxed about it.

Still, I didnt want to take any chance.

We U-turned back to my parents place, drop Little Habib there, went home, had a good shower, prepared the camera, charged our handphones...and waited.

Then, the contractions stopped at 11 plus and I went to bed... Gahhhh....!

Anyway, ok so I had my 37th week check up at the gynea too yesterday noon. Had the CDG scan..heartbeat normal, and showed there were already contractions! ...

Dr Heng was happy to see me... Baby's weight shot up to 2.5kg ! Alhamdullilah.....

Though I kindda lost weight...from 60kg to 59.8kg..so how's that possible when baby gained weight? Hmmm....

So now, the planned plan is again back on track.

If nothing happens before 12 Dec, Dr Heng will meet me at ESH bright and early and I shall be induced. She'll break my waterbag, and I will be put on drip.

Next check up will be next Wed, 10 Dec, to make sure things are OK and she will do the VE to check my cervix.

Hubby told her he was not in favour of inducing, but she told him that since I am already having contractions, it can be anytime....If not, that we'll get the baby out by next Friday..no Harm in that....

I already have the admission letter with me. All my bags are packed. Everything that I need is with me except the baby carrier. ( hint hint..anyone want to sponsor a baby carrier? haha...) nah kidding lah!....

Im still thinking if I should go buy a baby carrier. It would be convenient to carry my baby in a pouch while running after my active son. But someone did mention the baby's leg will be *distorted* if carried in a baby carrier....Hmmm.....

Well, Allah (swt ) knows best, induced or natural.. I leave it in HIS hands and I Am getting excited to get my baby out..... Insya'allah, may the baby be healthy and may everything be well. Amiin.

Same here. Just hearing about one's pregnancy gets me excited, not to mention the due!

Hope you have a safe delivery.

Take care.

ps: Share this with you - While in bad contractions, I was doing my zikir, you know, the kind where you just shake your head uncontrollably 'illallah'? Worst still, contractions included.. Hehe.. But I got scolded by an indian nurse asking me to shut up. Damn her. Still, I told her I can't stop la. It was just spontaneous.. Heh, my flashback.

Hahahaha.... LOL !!!!

for my first time, I was talking to GOD out loud telling him and that I cant take the pain...and the nurse kept coming to me asking me to take epidural...which of cos I totallay ignored her and went on talking to GOD...

some nurses can be such irritants...heh.
