What to expect when you're expecting

Dear readers,

I'm going to review a book i bought last week. Per my gynae's recommendation, I pull it out the from the shelves and started what I called the journey into my own womb, getting to know my body and my bundle of joy, before he/she came into the world. Ni kira macam buku pregnancy 101.Sweeetttt...

It will guide you by chapters explaining in detail what your body going through the whole pregnancy and give you hints and tips along the way for a healthy baby insya-Allah. Yang best, it started from before conceiving, preconception preparation, checkups yang perlu to make sure you are at the pinnacle of your health to get you ready for your journey.

Banyak medical terms yang kupelajari, terasa overwhelming with information which is good. Contoh nya, blood test untuk menentukan RH factor darah ibu supaya chances of getting incompability RH factor with the baby boleh di lupuskan with simple steps to protect the little one inside.

Dan juga the best sleeping position for me, which is laying on the side, sambil mengepit bantal di kaki kerana it allows maximum flow of blood and nutrien to the placenta.

Anyway ada juga cons of this book, it gives a whole lot of information sometimes it scares the shit out of you, sbb bila baca pasal speed bumps in pregnancy, you know, chances of getting problems yang tak diingini oleh setiap ibu, rasa cam anxious and debar2 je. Tapi tu lah, that is the fact, the way of handling it is not taking it all in. You know the risk is there tapi kita dah usaha, just tawakkal.
I'm saying goodbye to my first trimester, welcome 2nd trimester. Sekejap je dah nk masuk 3 bulan. Alhamdulillah my morning sickness has go away. Dan boleh masak2 kat dapur, simple dishes ok la. House cleaning masih suami yang buat, I just sapu2 sikit2 je buat syarat. Pastu nak start exercise, at least swimming secara slow motion every week. That is one of the best exercise for pregnant woman. :)

I'm not gaining much weight so far, dlm 1-2 kg je since raya hari tu, slow je progress, takpelah, as long as i eat healthily and the baby is fine, I'm not so worried.

Today nk pergi a few open houses. Can't wait.. Jarang dapat keluar jumpa kawan2, masa ni lah nak catch up with my friends sbb busy day to day with work and jaga rumah..

See ya!
