Losing Weight

I believe that it is if not all but most people's wish to lose weight and maintain a slim and nice body. Not just to look good, but also to maintain our health as by the looks of it, the incidence of metabolic syndrome in the young along with young hypertension and diabetes mellitus has become so rampant it is not even surprising anymore. Almost every other day I would be seeing a school boy by the age of 15-17 with hypertension and underlying metabolic syndrome. It is really sad as it is actually a condition which you can control and manage. Being fat isn't in the genes, it is a choice.

Anyway, that is for normal people, or what I would think a few months back. Being pregnant it is essential for me to gain the right amount of weight. Not too much, but just right, in order to keep myself going each day.

The problem right now is that I am not gaining anything since I got pregnant! Worst, today someone just asked me, "Hey, when did you deliver?" That means I look really-really slim, even slimmer than when I announced about my pregnancy.

I spent 4 days in Kelantan recently, indulging myself with all the possible food that I've been craving for so long. Good thing is, I did not vomit even once in Kelantan until my last day at the airport, thinking I must have gain a certain amount of weight, and boy I was wrong. Sigh.

Tomorrow I'll be starting a new posting. It will definitely keep me busy but I need to find ways to gain an appropriate amount of weight and make it maintain in my body till baby is born. Maybe I should talk to my obstetrician during my appointment in a few weeks time.

I just hope for now Allah will protect both of us, and the daddy as well :) And may our next posting be smooth, better than the previous one :)

Fruit Juice!

Since Farid found out about the baby, he was all about "do this, do that, eat this, don't eat that" and I had to gave up on the one thing I love the most - Maggie :( But oh well, for the sake of my unborn child, I would succumb to anything. How selfless I am! Hahahah. But Farid promised once all the vital organs are developed I can ear Maggie - sometimes. That's good enough!

One thing for sure is that Farid makes sure that I have all my daily nutrients. Well I guess this is what you get by marrying a doctor. He doesn't care about the morning sickness and will go "my baby will starve, my baby will be hypo" when I don't want to eat. Lucky I know, my baby and I, but sometimes I wish I could just sleep rather than eating. It is tiring, this whole pregnancy progress, and I am still juggling to keep balance.

But since I was pregnant, one thing for sure that I get everyday is fresh fruit juice and milk! Hehehehe. Farid says its good for the baby's skin and brain :) heee. I'm not like kakak who is always on her toes with fruit milkshakes and all, but since I've been having this little one, that is the only thing that has been constantly shoved down. Maybe because I don't really like to eat a fruit whole except for mangoes and some other fruits. Hehe.

On our way to JB we spotted this! So colourful!!!!!! :)

Seeing You

So for my pregnancy, I've finally booked myself and got the pink book :) The whole process was smooth and the doctor was really REALLY nice! She was the one who delivered Sara 8 years ago! It was really fun chatting to her.

After a short consultation, she brought me to the ultrasound machine to scan the baby. For the first time I saw the tiny hands and tiny feet moving, I felt like crying. It was the most beautiful sight I've ever seen, Subhanallah! And I can't feel any luckier to have this experience. It definitely makes me want to see my baby even more!

I know it is still really early and I will have to go through many-many weeks and months before finally being able to hold little baby in my arms, but I'm already really excited.

O Allah, please ease me going through this. I know I can always count on you :)

Baby Bump!

Whenever I mention to someone that I'm pregnant for the first time, they will look at me with disbelief and ask one of the two questions:

1. But why does it look like you're losing weight?
2. You're kidding, right?

Ending my first trimester very soon, my bump doesn't really look like a baby bump, but more like something that you'll have after a buffet dinner! I call myself buncit all the time and Farid will be "that's the baby, sayang." LoL. It's really fun to see him excited like that all the time.

I don't have a tummy and have always been bragging about it to Farid, so once I found out that I was pregnant, I looked into the mirror almost every day to see if my tummy has grown! Haha.

No one can tell if I'm pregnant now, bot even when I wear my polo T! And my weight has been static all along.

Tomorrow I'll be doing my booking at the hospital, and see my baby! Can't wait!!! I know it's still very early to determine the gender, but whatever it turns out to be, I'm grateful!

For the short term, I'm looking forward to have a baby bump! Hahahah. It's weird I know but I want to have that "feeling."

Good thing for me is that I can still eat, , though I do demand certain meals sometimes. Haha.

Can't wait for tomorrow! And to look like this...
