Month: March 2011

of quickening and a growing belly.

At around 17 weeks, I have started to feel my baby’s movements from the outside. Alhamdulillah. They feel like butterflies fluttering in my stomach !
MashaAllah, it’s such an amazing feeling and at times I feel like my little one is reassuring me that he/she is doing a-okay. Alhamdulillah. 🙂
Mr Sunshine has not been able to feel these movements yet as they’re not quite strong. I can’t wait for the time he gets to feel what I feel !  
I believe the pregnancy term for the first baby movements that an expectant mother can feel is quickening.

Alhamdulillah, as at today, there’s no more bleeding or spotting to worry about. I actually refused to be admitted on Wednesday and I admit I was kinda worried I made the wrong decision. But, Alhamdulillah, so far so good. I know I’ve still gotta be careful, no heavy chores or walking too fast.
My belly seemed to have gone through a sudden growth spurt in the past week and everyone can notice it already.

I need to get new outfits for work, I don’t know how long more my baju kurungs will fit me.

Noor treated Matun, Miah and I to Secret Recipe after work on Thursday. Matun brought her 4-month old baby, Muhaimin who was soooo adorable ! All of us have to wear white scarves until April 29 in respect of the passing of our King’s mother, Almarhum Tengku Ampuan Bariah.

Matun, baby Muhaimin & Noor. Thanks so much Noor !

I had the Spaghetti and (burnt) Meatballs which was okay lah. I also had a slice of the Marble Cheesecake and an Orange & Apricot Slushie to wash all of that down.

There’s something wrong with my laptop screen, it looks like this sometimes.

Anyone knows why ? I think it’s a connection problem, but I could be wrong. Hmm.

I have been getting extremely forgetful lately. I have to rely on my phone reminders all the time.

Mr Sunshine and I initially took leave this weekend to travel back to Batu Pahat but because of the circumstances pertaining to my health, we decided to postpone the traveling to another time.
Baby & Mummy’s health first ! 🙂

My Modified Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (MOGTT) is scheduled in early May but I am already so nervous. For those of you who don’t know what the test is all about, it’s a test to determine whether or not you have diabetes. Or in my case, gestational diabetes. I am so worried ! Firstly because Daddy is diabetic, and secondly because of my huge sweet tooth !
Argh, nerve-wrecking !
Hope for the best, hope for the best.

It’s dinner time. Bye !

we need more pepperonis.

This shot was actually from a few weeks ago. I ordered my favourite Pepperoni Delight pizza from the Pizza Hut outlet at Giant, Kuala Terengganu and I was extremely dissatisfied with the amount of pepperoni pieces that were on it.
Look at the slice on the furthest right, there’s only ONE piece of pepperoni ! So stingy, kan ?
They might as well change the name to Pizza Dough Delight pizza.

so lonesome for you.

My medical leave has been extended until today. So that’s a total of 5 days of leave, 7 if you add the weekend, but I’m working this weekend so it will be only 5 days for me.
I fell sick in the middle of the week, with an awful sore throat and flu. I am OK now, Alhamdulillah. Asam Jawa juice works wonders !
A week of medical leave might help me physically, but it’s done almost nothing for me emotionally.
I don’t think I’ll be traveling back to Gombak anytime soon. 🙁
People keep telling me that I shouldn’t be so stressed up because I am expecting. Some things are definitely easier said than done.

It has been raining non stop over here in Kuala Berang.
My heart has been as gloomy as the weather.

I am so blessed to have my Sunshine here with me. Alhamdulillah.
