Meeting Specialist

I had my routine appointment with the Doctor today :D Alhamdulillah, Baby is doing great. As usual, Baby is actively moving every time the nurse trying to check Baby’s heartbeat. *big smiles* It was rather quick and the Doctor was really nice and friendly too. Again, I was thought that I’m 16 years old. Nyehs!
Since I missed my GTT last two weeks because of the written test I had at MOF, I was scheduled to take the test this Saturday. Next appointment is in mid Sept and another ultrasound is at the end of the month. I can’t wait for the ultrasound as we have not seen Baby for a while already.
I can’t believe that we have come to the last 10 days of Ramadhan. I have stopped fasting because I have not gain much for the past weeks and it’s worrying (especially for Hubs). Insya Allah, I will qadha my puasa when I’m able to and asked Hubs to puasa with me too. *giggles* :P
p/s: We have started buying baby clothes. Not much though, enough for newborn. They are so cute!!! Love them as they have teddy bear motives! :D :D:D

Braxton Hicks

I received an email from the bump and saw this “What are Brixton Hicks contractions”? I just read something about it at What to Expect application from Hubs’s IP. So, I went to reading about it abit further..
This is what The Expert from the Bump said..
Re: What are Braxton Hicks contractions? When could they start, and what do they feel like?
Braxton Hicks contractions (name courtesy of the English doctor who first described them in 1872) are relatively painless, irregular, and infrequent contractions that start around week six and lasting until the weeks before delivery. Though they start in the first months, you probably won’t feel them until around week 28 (if at all). These contractions are your body’s way of practicing and preparing for labor.
The tightness you feel in your uterus during a Braxton Hicks contraction comes from the tensing of the muscles in your uterus. Although they cause more annoyance than pain, drinking water or taking a walk or a warm bath should relieve any discomfort. Mild Braxton Hicks contractions are very common and nothing to worry about, but call your doctor if you’re in the first eight months and feel four or more contractions in an hour — this might be a sign of preterm labor.

I am not sure if what I have been feeling lately is Braxton Hicks or not. I do sometimes feel that my stomach tightens and cramps under my buttocks just like when I had my period. Less than 5 mins every time it happens. Sometimes I feel pain under my stomach too, the uterus area on the right. Mom said its Baby kicking me. Back pain is still zero at this point. So far, the pain is mild and still bearable.
Luckily I have Doctor’s appointment this Monday so I can tell her what’s been happening. Mudah-mudahan Allah will keep on protecting Baby. Amin Ya Rabbal Alamin~

Salam Ramadhan

I hope it is not too late for me to wish everyone who has kindly visited my blog, “Selamat Menyambut Bulan Ramadhan dan Selamat Berpuasa” :D
Today is our second day of fasting in Brunei and I know, in Malaysia it is your third day. Mudah-mudahan ibadah puasa kita akan diterima oleh Allah SWT jua. Aminnnn!
I must say, being pregnant during this fasting is quite a challenge. Unfortunately I didn’t managed to fulfilled my puasa yesterday. Baby was kicking me throughout the afternoon. Belum biasa puasa maybe. Hehe.. But Alhamdulillah, today Baby has been behaving well. Less kicking. Mudah-mudahan Allah SWT akan sentiasa melindungi Baby, Aminnn!
p/s: bought 3 items for Baby already :D Thank you so much Bff!
