Prenatal and Postnatal Vitamins

Selamat Hari Raya y’all !!
Maaf Zahir & Batin !

Better late than never, kan kan kan kan ? Hee.

Alhamdulillah.
I am now in my 2nd trimester, 25 weeks to be exact.
And I am now 10kgs heavier. Haha.

The nausea and lethargy I went through during my first trimester has slowly started to dissipate. Alhamdulillah.
And syukur to Allah, I managed to fast throughout Ramadhan this year with only missing one day because I woke up after Subuh. Sobs.
I was hoping to get to puasa penuh but I guess having to qadha 1 day isn’t that bad. :)

Mr. Sunshine has been such a darling, helping me to cook and clean for the past 5 months. Love you Encik Gigi Besarku !
I think he has this hidden passion for cooking, he keeps googling for new recipes to try. Hehe.

Just to share, this is the Healthy Prenatal set from Shaklee that I have been taking:

prenatal and postnatal vitamins

ESP
Protein supply for sustained energy, the building of fetal tissue and for a healthy uterus for baby to grow in !

VitaLea Iron Formula
This is a multivitamin with iron which helps us fill in our daily nutritional gaps. The iron in it helps pregnant mothers maintain healthy hemoglobin (HB) levels.

B-Complex
Complete source of B vitamins, including Folic Acid for mother and baby.
It’s critical to have enough folic acid in our system by the early weeks of pregnancy to prevent spina bifida. That’s why I recommend taking B Complex wayyyy before you get pregnant. :)

Sustained Release Vita C
Vitamin C helps improve our immune system, which is of course very important during pregnancy.

Ostematrix
Source of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D, which is very important for bone and growth of baby. The calcium our baby needs is provided by our diet, so we have to make sure we get enough calcium in our diet.
Ostematrix also helps in easing constipation !

Omega Guard
To provide a safe and beneficial amount of DHA & EPA for fetal brain development.

So there you are, my basic prenatal vitamins !
What’s good about all the above is I can still continue taking them after delivery (with the addition of Alfalfa Complex), and I plan to do so, InshaAllah.

I believe these supplements have helped me stay energized throughout Ramadhan, with Allah’s permission, of course.

Just found out you’re pregnant ? Congratulations ! Let me help you decide on which prenatal vitamins you should take. :)

Hellloouuu !

Good morning everyone. :)
We’re already on the 8th day of Ramadhan. MashaAllah, time flies so fast ! Pejam celik pejam celik, dah nak masuk second week of Ramadhan !

Everyone knows how important sahur (pre-dawn meal) is, it is not merely an act of waking up to fill up our tummies before we start to fast, but we also wake up to gain barakah.

Anas bin Maalik (RA) said that the Prophet (PBUH) said, “Make suhoor because verily in As-Suhoor is Barakah (blessing).”

Al-Bukhaari (1923), Muslim, An-Nasaa’i, At-Tirmidhi, Ibn Maajh and Ad-Daarami.

Even when arwah Mummy was still around, most of the time I would only wake up to have a few glasses of water. But after getting to know Shaklee, this has been my sahur:

Last year, Mr Sunshine has also joined the ‘Shaklee Sahur’ bandwagon. Hehe. The only difference is his includes Cinch Shake Mix in Caffe Latte. :)

His sahur: 1 tablespoon Performance Drink, 1 tablespoon Meal Shakes & 2 scoops of Cinch Shake Mix
Her sahur: 1 tablespoon Performance Drink, 1 tablespoon Meal Shakes & 2 tablespoons ESP (=Mighty 3 Gems)

You can vary this concoction, you can add fruits, dates, honey, fresh milk, anything you like ! :)
I have improvised my Mighty 3 Gems by occasionally adding 1 sachet of Collagen Powder and 1 teaspoon of Vivix for that extra awet muda umph. Hehe.

My sahur is completed with the yummy Chocodates, which I discovered back in 2011 while I was pregnant with Khayla. :)

Alhamdulillah my Shaklee sahur has helped me stay energetic, hydrated and tak lemau (hehe).
