ramadhan 1432H.

Salam Ramadhan everyone !

I’m hoping I will be able to fast smoothly along with the rest of you, well that is until Mini Mel says hello. Ameen.

Happy fasting, let’s get busy collecting pahalas. 🙂

week 36 update.

Woah, time sure flies !

At 9 months pregnant, I am having a hard time keeping my cool. I’ve gotta admit I am more nervous than excited.

Thanks Google Images !

I have noticed that my belly has dropped slightly, which means that Mini Mel’s is slowly making her way down my pelvis.
This must be the reason I have been experiencing persistent menstrual like cramps along with lower back pains. Walking gets slightly uncomfortable at times. I have to adjust to walking at a slower pace than usual. Mr. Sunshine would be happy to hear this because he keeps asking me why I need to walk so fast everyday. Err, I am just a natural ‘fast walker’ ?

Baby squirms a lot.
Mummy pees a lot.
Haha. Ok, not funny.

I am far from having the burst of energy a.k.a ‘nesting instinct’ some expectant mums are said to acquire around this time. Instead I feel like I am getting lazier as the days go by. If only I could laze around at home these days. But I know that’s just unhealthy and I need to keep moving especially during this last month of pregnancy, and that’s what I plan to (try to) do. InshaAllah. 🙂

Thanks Google Images !

Alhamdulillah so far, my feet and legs are appearing slightly larger than usual but they’re not edematous and there are no signs of stretch marks on my belly. YET.
It’s either I’m blessed with really thick skin or the fact that I have been religiously applying olive oil on my belly since I found out I was preggers is working.
But then again, I might be speaking too soon.

I don’t think we’re allowed to have jeweleries on us in the labour room, so instead of waiting until the last minute and risk misplacing them, I have just removed both my engagement and wedding rings. Well, my fingers have also puffed up a bit so it’s better that I removed them now rather than having trouble removing them later on.
I just hope they’d still fit me after the delivery. Hehe.

I have more or less one month to go ! InshaAllah.

on how to make a mushroom omelette.

Last weekend, Mr. Sunshine and I had mushroom omelette sandwiches for dinner. I made pasta for lunch that day so we were pretty stuffed.

Daddy makes THE BEST mushroom omelette.
And he obviously knows he does.
I sent a text message to Daddy asking for tips on how to make a good mushroom omelette and he replied with the whole recipe. Haha.

And this is how my mushroom omelette looked like:

Not very appealing huh ?
Mr Sunshine thought it was delicious and went back for seconds, but I would rather have Daddy make some for me. Hehe.
