habis pantang!

I have now completed my 6 weeks confinement.  wohoooooo!
well, to be honest, I dont feel much so liberated as I should be, or as what i felt during the 1st confinement. I have not been 'good' or obedient in following strict Malay confinement rules this time around. I have lots and lots to do, mind you the 2 other girls and a home. it is so much of difficulty being in a confinement with 3 kids.
I am glad now I can go out and watch movie, even though i need to tag Amal along. unfortunately the boobies cannot be detached. 
Amal is still a bit yellow of jaundice. but she is growing up good. she can now sleep longer hours at night.
have u ever fell asleep, deep sleep then u woke up worrying why u slept like a log and wondered whats wrong with the baby? why is she not up or crying? that's me when she doesnt wake up for milk. i go paranoid. i would feel chest to see whether she's breathing. or put my finger on her nose to feel her breathing. hahaha.  and then at that moment,…

Of A B C D

I am intrigued by this. it got me thinking.
If I were to choose, I will definitely choose A, C and D.
Why A? Oh dear should I say why??? Of course the vomiting and nausea and the tiredness and the backache, headache, stomache. Hyperemesis is the worst! and mine did not help but to hang around until my third timester. Alhamdulillah the third pregnancy was not as bad as the first or the second. but regardless, I am forever traumatized by this. with the needles and drips. and my most important thing to carry everywhere: plastic bag. It was my BFF. heck, it replaced my handbag! I couldnt travel a lot. All i could do was curled up on my bed and sleep. and I missed eating. I craved eating. anything as long as I could eat. 2nd and 3rd pregnancy was not as bad, but it was still part of the journey. but seeing your child/children and husband being neglected was a very very bad feeling. I felt soo bad that I could not entertain them much, being a mom and a wife. really, I felt so bad.

Dealing with Green Eye Toddlers

When you have someone new coming into your little family, aka the birth of a new baby, of course everybody would be thrilled and happy and all, including your children. But that doesnt mean they don't get jealous.  Jealousy is the difficult part to handle. As a mom.

Ayra had her fair share of green eye moments when Amna was born. She would come and snuggle with me right when I wanted to nurse her little sister back then. 
Well, same goes to Amna now.  She would come and snuggle right when Amal needs to be fed.  and sleeping time involves me patting her with one hand and the other holding Amal while trying to steady myself nursing her. and she cries a lot to lately. seeking attention ler tu..
and owh, that was nothing. 
When Hub went outstation when we were 2 weeks in confinement, I had to entertain 3 babies altogether. the most difficult part was to putting them to sleep altogether. one hand must scratch Ayra's leg, another is to Amna. while putting Amal on the lap and making…

Pre Birth Short Gateaway

One of our pre-birth rituals would be to go somewhere where we can relax and enjoy before Mommy pops out and sleepless pantang session comes in.
We went to Penang prior the 1st birth. and we went to Andaman Langkawi prior to the 2nd birth. For the 3rd one, we didnt go far. we stayed really really close. Like, 15 minutes drive from home.  We went to Holiday Inn Glenmarie.
Why on earth did we do that? What happened to our so called long distance trip? Well, Hub was really really busy. He could not take days off. and the only holiday we got was the public holiday, which was Chinese New Year at that time. and for us to travel out of KL during CNY is like asking me to forever sulk and asking me to turn into a monster throughout the trip.  I dont deal with traffic jams well. I mean it. I will become irritated and moody and wanting to scream to everybody in the car. and for me to scream to my 2 daughters, who can be pretty handful during a long trip, will not be nice. And I was about 33-34 …
