We went to Johor, Bukit indah, yesterday to do some grocery shopping. They are having great sale at F.O.S and brands outlet shops. Like, really good deal stuff. We bought remaining stuff for Babylove and me such as maternity pads, nursing pads, baby oil and all that misc items. Oh! I bought this nursing pillow for only RM60 which is about sgd23! Alhamdulilah. I did not buy any nursing pillow because I find them a tad too expensive. I watched reviews on Youtube. Some moms swear by it. Some said it is redundant item. So, I was not willing to buy the nursing pillow. I thought I will make do with normal pillow and will only buy it when I think I need it.
So, seeing that it will only cost me $23, I went ahead to buy it. Yeah! Kla tk pakai pon, can use for tummy time.
We stocked up our grocery items. Will have a massive stock-up end of the month since both our families will come over quite frequently to our house when the time is nearing to EDD and after the birth. We just drink plain water and does not tidbits like biscuits or anything in our house. So, need to buy some bottled drinks and some simple food to steam, oven or fry and serve to the visitors.
The nursery is still in a mess. Will do it soon!
The baby weigh about 1.9kg last 2 weeks (32 weeks). This Friday, I will be having another check-up. I hope his weigh gained to about 2.1kg. I’m not gaining any weight since the last appointment. Am still at 61.9kg. On one hand, I’m glad I’m not gaining weight but at the same time, I’m worried whether Babylove is gaining weight at a healthy rate. Will ask the doctor about this.
I hope he is able to at least gain 100gm per week so that his weigh will be at least 2.9kg when he is 40 weeks. If he delivered earlier, I hope he is at least 2.8 or 2.9kg. Will monitor his weight closely. Actually, to gain 1kg more in a month is quite possible kan? Just cannot gain too much, else, the baby will be too big and difficult to push out?
I try to control my diet. Not eating too much and not too little. So far, I have been eating bread for breakfast, together with some hot drinks like horlick, milo or soyabeans. For lunch, it is usually rice with chicken or protein and some veg. At times, I make myself tuna sandwich. For dinner, I usually eat a bowl of fruits with yogurt. But, I will alternatively change my dinner to something light or because I also want to prevent gestational diabetes (Too much of fruits and yogurt can be quite sugary). I don’t eat rice or noodle for dinner because I’m training myself for the confinement. Have been doing this for 2 weeks now.
My nenek and makcik told me to not eat any rice after 7pm and cold drinks during confinement. They say these are the 2 golden rules I should never ever break during confinement. Thus, I’m slowly abiding to these 2 golden rules now so that I will not go cold turkey during confinement. Make sense? Tapi, yogurt is served cold. Hmmm. Maybe I need to wait till it is room temperature then can consume? I try to follow the confinement rules as much as I can. At the end of the day, it is for the benefits of my own health. Intend to have more babies in the future, so must take care of the body! Hahahaha! Anyway, health is our amanah.
Anyway, will see how the baby weight goes. Will pump up his weight kla his weight is too little. I’m sure I have no issue eating. Hahahaha! Nak control diet lebih susah dari suruh makan. According to the chart, I gaining at the maximum rate. Oh well. In sha Allah, can go back to my pre-pregnancy weight after delivering later. Gaining weight can really affect my self-esteem. Hmmm.
