Weight Lost @ 1st Trimaster

Hari ni masok 12 minggu @ 3 bulan kandungan.. Alhamdulillah :)

Selama hampir 10 hari puasa tak da 1 hari pon yg tertinggal. Semuanya dapat disempurnakan dengan baik. Alhamdulillah..

But lately, selera makan semakin lama semakin kurang. Buka puasa pon makan sikit sangat nasi.. Kadang2 kuih2 yang hubby beli pon langsung tak berusik sb rasa loya. Tgk lauk pauk pon da tak da nafsu. Selera mmg da lost langsung.. Lepas tu pulak kalu makan je mesti muntah. Mmg pon selalu buka puasa ni banyak minum air.. Maybe tu yang buat loya dan muntah :(

Tadi saje2 je la nk test timbang berat. Know what?! I lost my 3kg weight! OMG!

Berat badan normal before pregnant: 50kg
Berat badan masa kandungan 8 minggu: 54kg
Berat badan masa kandungan 12 minggu: 51kg

Mmg sangat sedeh tgk berat badan drop sampai 3kg. Kecian baby... Harap2 la cukup nutrien baby dalam perot ni... 

Actually sy tak ambil pon susu Anmum (or apa2 susu ibu mengandung) time pregnancy kali ni. Sb nye mmg tak bole nk telan susu Anmum tu. Sb tak sedap langsung! Tak bole masok tekak. So minum je la susu Dutch Lady low fat dengan harapan dapat membekalkan nutrisi yang baby perlukan. 

Lagi satu faktor2 yang menyebabkan sy lost weight ni mesti sb stress sangat dengan kerja. Ye la, patot masa puasa2 ni keje tak da la heavy sangat. Ni tak, masa puasa2 ni la kerja nk melambak2. Tambah plak colleague da nak deliver baby so sume kerja da kene handover. Keje sendiri pon tak cukup tangan tambah plak dengan kerja2 yg dihandover tu mmg buat sy btol2 stress. Pastu plak tu kene mengadap orang2 yang suke sangat treat things urgent, yg tak reti plan kerja awal2. Tu yang paling buat marah! And skang ni pantang betol kalu orang datang kat meja tanye benda2 yg bukan2.. Hey! Igt aku ni kaunter pertanyaan ker? Hangin betol!

And kalu nk taw sepanjang Ramadhan ni jarang la nk dapat rest tengah2 hari sb kerja tak henti2 datang. Risau jugak sb badan mmg penat, perut pon lapar... Malam2 pon pukol 9 da tidur sb da terlampau penat. Harap2 tak mengganggu kandungan la disebabkan stress kerja ni.

Next week kene g checkup so nak make sure badan fit balik. Maybe cara2 ni bole tolong utk merawat rasa mual:
  • Hindari makanan berbau tajam, asap rokok dan wangian
  • Dapatkan bantuan supplement tambahan yg membantu mengurangkan rasa mual dan muntah
  • Makan makanan yang mampu ditelan kerongkong
  • Elakkan terus berbaring setelah makan
  • Elak minum air ketika makan
  • Banyak berehat daripada bergerak

Reference peningkalan berat badan sepanjang kehamilan:

Pertambahan berat (kg)
Pertama (Bulan 1 - 3)
1 hingga 2 kg sebulan
Kedua (Bulan 4 - 6)0.5kg seminggu
Ketiga (Bulan 7 - 9)kurang 1kg sebulan

Hopefully sy dapat follow berat badan ideal ibu2 mengandung... Insyaallah~

Pregnant Mommy Don't Eat!

Baru je baca article bawah ni and think that very2 important utk ibu mengandung tahu and aware tentang makanan2 yang dilarang makan ketika mengandung.

Since last time ada bad experience in preganancy, now sy sangat2 pantang tentang makanan. Paranoid sangat sampaikan setiap kali nk makan makanan yang pelik kene google dulu tgk info tentang makanan tu and effect kepada pregnant lady.. Teruk nya la sampai macam tu skali. Hihii~

Selain dari makanan2 yang dilarang makan seperti yang info di bawah ni, sy pon pegang jugak petua orang lama2... Maybe tak da kajian perubatan yang mengatakan nenas, air kelapa and tebu tak boleh makan semasa mengandung. Tapi ikot kata2 orang tua, nenas, air kelapa and tebu makanan yang tajam dan mungkin akan memudaratkan kandungan expecially utk kandungan 1st trimaster. Buktinya, sy sendiri pernah makan laksa kuah nanas masa pregnant 6 minggu and know what keesokan harinya sy bleeding and doctor confirm yang sy misscarriage. So mmg sangat bahaya makan makanan yang tajam macam ni.. And if not mistaken lada hitam pon patot dielakkan sebab panas. Mungkin kalau ambil dalam kuantiti yang sikit tape kot.

So mommies, please take care of your food and jangan makan benda2 yang bole memudaratkan kandungan...

Happy eating uoollsss :)


What Not to Eat When Pregnant
Reviewed by Louise Chang, MD
So Long, Soft Cheeses
Eating Mexican queso blanco or other soft cheeses during pregnancy can be risky. Those made with unpasteurized milk can harbor Listeria bacteria, which has been linked to miscarriage, premature delivery, and death. It’s best to avoid brie, camembert, feta, blue cheese, queso blanco, queso fresco, and Panela – unless the label says it’s pasteurized. When in doubt or dining out, ask before you eat.
Skip Undercooked Meat
You might like your filet mignon rare, but pregnancy is a time to order all steaks and burgers well done. Raw or undercooked meat can harbor toxoplasma and a variety of bacteria. When dining out, make sure your meat is steaming hot and thoroughly cooked. At home, the temperature should reach at least 145° F for whole cuts, 160° F for ground meats like hamburger, and 165°F for chicken breasts.
Beware Fresh Juice
Fresh-squeezed juice in restaurants, juice bars, or farm stands may not be pasteurized to protect against harmful bacteria, including salmonella and E. coli. Some markets also sell raw, unpasteurized juice in the refrigerated case – look for the required warning label and steer clear. Pregnant women should opt for juice that is pasteurized. Shelf stable juice in boxes and bottles is also safe.
Sayonara, Sushi
Sorry, sushi fans, but it’s time for a 9-month hiatus from this treat. Although seafood is a great source of protein, raw seafood can be a source of harmful parasites and bacteria. The FDA recommends pregnant women only eat fish and other seafood that has been cooked thoroughly.
Raw Cookie Dough
When you’re baking cookies, you may be tempted to pop a bit of raw dough in your mouth. But even a taste can be risky if the dough contains raw eggs. The CDC estimates one in 20,000 eggs is tainted with salmonella bacteria. To be safe, resist tasting unbaked cookie dough, batter, or filling made with raw eggs. The good news is store-bought cookie dough ice cream is safe.
Homemade Caesar Dressing
Raw eggs are also used in many homemade dressings and sauces, such as:
Caesar salad dressing
Béarnaise sauce
Hollandaise sauce
Pregnant women should opt for store-bought versions, which are made with pasteurized eggs.
Homemade Tiramisu
Many homemade desserts, including mousse, meringue, and tiramisu, also contain raw eggs. If a store-bought version won’t do, there is a safe way to prepare your favorite . Some supermarkets sell pasteurized eggs, which are OK to eat raw. Make sure the label on the eggs specifically states “pasteurized.”
Fresh Pre-Stuffed Poultry
A pre-stuffed turkey or chicken offers a short-cut to a guest-worthy meal. But the juice from fresh, raw poultry can mix with the stuffing and promote bacterial growth. Cooking protects most people, but pregnancy makes it harder to fight off infections. A safe alternative is buying frozen pre-stuffed poultry. Be sure to cook it directly from frozen – don’t let it defrost first. The thigh meat should hit 180 ºF.
Fish With Mercury
Swordfish, tilefish, king mackerel, and shark contain high levels of methylmercury. This metal can harm an unborn baby’s development. Pregnant women should choose fish that are low in mercury, such as catfish, salmon, and canned light tuna. If you prefer albacore (white) tuna, limit yourself to 6 ounces per week. Check with your doctor before taking fish oil or any other supplements while pregnant.
Deli Meats
Unlike many other foodborne germs, listeria can grow at the temperatures inside your fridge. For this reason, pregnant women should avoid perishable, ready-to-eat meats, such as cold cuts and hot dogs. You can make these foods safe by heating them until they are steaming hot and eating them promptly.
Pâtés or Meat Spreads
Pâtés contain perishable meats, so they may harbor listeria as well. Keeping your fridge at or below 40° F will slow the growth of this bacteria, but won’t stop it completely. Because pregnant women are particularly vulnerable to listeria, it’s best to avoid any type of refrigerated meat spread. Spam lovers can breathe easy. Canned and shelf-safe meat spreads are OK during pregnancy, if not exactly a healthy food.
Unwashed Fruits/Veggies
Pregnancy is no time to skimp on fresh fruits and vegetables. Just be sure to rinse them thoroughly under running water. A parasite called toxoplasma can live on unwashed fruits and veggies. It causes an illness called toxoplasmosis, which can be very dangerous to an unborn baby. Don’t use soap to wash produce. Instead, scrub the surface with a small vegetable brush. Cut away any bruised areas, since these may harbor bacteria.
Raw Sprouts
Pregnant women should not eat raw sprouts of any kind, including alfalfa, clover, and radish. Bacteria can get into the seeds before the sprouts begin to grow, and these germs are nearly impossible to wash away. At the deli, check sandwiches to make sure they don’t contain raw sprouts. At home, cook sprouts thoroughly to destroy any bacteria.
Smoked Seafood
During pregnancy, it’s best to skip the lox when you enjoy your morning bagel. Like ready-to-eat meats, refrigerated smoked seafood is vulnerable to listeria. This includes smoked salmon (often labeled nova or lox), as well as smoked trout, whitefish, cod, tuna, or mackerel. It is safe to use smoked seafood in a cooked meal, such as a casserole.
Raw Shellfish
Raw shellfish is one of the top causes of seafood-borne illness. The culprits include parasites and bacteria that are generally not found in cooked seafood. Shellfish is safe to eat during pregnancy, as long as you cook it thoroughly. Cook oysters, clams, and mussels until the shells open. If any don’t open, throw them away.
Fish from Local Waters
Unless you know your local streams, bays, and lakes are unpolluted, avoid eating fish you catch yourself. Some lakes and rivers are contaminated with industrial chemicals. Locally caught bluefish, striped bass, salmon, pike, trout, and walleye may be affected. Check with your state’s fish and wildlife department for more information.
Potluck Foods
You may not want to insult your friends by avoiding their potluck offerings. But there’s reason for concern if the food is left unrefrigerated for too long. Follow the 2-Hour Rule: Don’t eat potluck dishes that have been sitting at room temperature for longer than two hours. When temperatures are above 90° F, the cut-off should be one hour.
Unpasteurized Milk
Have you ever dreamed of visiting a farm and tasting milk fresh from a cow? If you’re pregnant, it’s best to postpone that outing. Freshly collected milk has not yet been through the pasteurization process that protects it from listeria. Only buy milk, cheese, or dairy products from a local farm, if the label says “pasteurized.”
The Caffeine Question
Good evidence now shows that a moderate amount of caffeine is safe during pregnancy. But the jury is still out on whether higher amounts of caffeine can increase the odds of a miscarriage. The March of Dimes recommends women who are pregnant or trying should limit caffeine to 200 mg per day. That’s one 12-ounce cup of coffee. But remember, caffeine is also found in soda, tea, chocolate, and many energy drinks.
You already know that heavy drinking during pregnancy can lead to serious birth defects. What you may not know is that even small amounts of alcohol could be harmful. No amount of drinking has been found to be safe during pregnancy, so it’s best to avoid all forms of alcohol. This includes wine, beer, coolers, and traditional egg nog, which contains alcohol and raw eggs.
Doggie Bags
Unless you’re headed straight home from the restaurant, it’s best to skip the doggie bag. The inside of a car can get warm quickly, allowing bacteria to multiply. If you do take home leftovers, put them in the fridge within two hours of when the meal was originally served.

Supplement to Help You Get Pregnant

Sedang syok reseach2 tentang pregnancy ni, teringat pula tentang supplement/vitamins yang husband and I ambil time we all try to conceive dulu.

1st preganancy hari tu, ada research kat internet tentang supplement/vitamin yang baik utk meningkatkan kesuburan suami isteri selain daripada Asid Folic yang wajib diambil sejak mula2 kahwin. Tapi, kami tak bergantung pon pada vitamin tu semata.. Cuma sekadar berusaha..

Ada 3 supplement/vitamin yang kami recommend kan.. Vitamin E, Vitamin C and Zink . Dan alhamdulillah lepas makan vitamin ni tak sampai sebulan sy +ve pregnant. But doctor cakap once da confirm je pregnant je kene stop kan sume pengambilan vitamin/supplement ni sebab dikuatiri akan memberi kesan baby dalam kandungan...

1) Vitamin E
Sangat penting bagi sistem reproduksi suami dan isteri. Bagi wanita, Vitamin E menjaga sistem endokrin dan menstabilkan hormon dengan baik. Bagi lelaki pula Vitamin E memperbanyakkan sperma dan hormon seks serta mencegah kerosakan DNA sperma.
* Sy amik Vitamin E ni sekali dengan hubby. Walaupon harga mahal sikit tapi takpa boleh kongsi2 :)

2) Vitamin C
Penting terutamanya utk wanita. Vitamic C ni elok utk menjaga keseimbangan hormon, meningkatkan kesuburan, memperkuatkan imunisasi dan lain2..
* Sy beli vitamic C tablet yang larut dalam air... Boleh diminum selepas makan. Sedapp macam rasa buah oren :)

3) Zinc
Sangat penting bagi kesuburan lalaki. Mineral ni dapat membantu menjaga fungsi organ seksual dan produksi spema. Kekurangan zinc menyebabkan penurunan hormon testosteron, dan pengurangan penghasilan sperma yang sihat
*Vitamin ni sy suruh hubby yang makan.. Mmg berkesan :)

Sy ambil vitamin2 tu sekali sehari and tak ambil banyak2 vitamin dalam masa yang sama. Sy tak campur2 kan makan sebab takot effect kat tubuh badan.

So for those yang trying to conceive, cube la makan supplement ni.. Insyaallah ada rezeki :)

Heartbeat ♥

This is my second pregnancy journey... After fail pada kehamilan pertama... 

ALHAMDULILLAH... Rezeki dari Illahi tak mampu disangkal lagi... :)

Last time check masa pregnancy 4 minggu. Masa tu check sendiri since delay period beberapa hari and result alhamdulillah +ve with 2 lines and lebih terang dari yang dulu. Check kat klinik and doc mengesahkan "Ye, anda mengandung.. Tahniah!" . But still macam tak sure and paranoid. Takot jadi lagi macam dulu...

Masih berdiam diri.. Tak declare kat sesiapa lagi selain mak, adik and husband. Tak berani nye nak kongsi dengan orang2.. Of coz la utk first time ibu mengandung, mesti happy and tak share dengan kawan2. But actually sebenarnya kte hanya mampu merancang tapi tuhan yang menentukan. So sy pk untuk pregnancy kali ni biarlah ianya terjadi secara semulajadi... Dan berdoa agar kandungan ini sihat dan selamat dilahirkan nt.. Insyaallah :)

Now pregnant hampir 2 bulan. Perubahan pada diri tu sikit2 da muncul. Kalu first pregnancy dulu tak penah pon rasa mabuk. Now bole kata tiap2 hari.. samaada pagi or malam ada sickness. Orang cakap bagus kalu dapat rasa mabuk etc. sb itu menandakan hormon dalam badan elok berkembang.

Kalau dulu bukan main lagi la suke makan sane sini.. Most fav dulu makan Seoul Garden, Ayam bakar Wong Solo, minum air soya multigrain Vsoy.. And tatau la nape skang ni kalu dengar nama pon rasa kembang je tekak. Adakah pregnancy kali ini betol2 mengeffect selera makan dan memisahkan ku dengan makanan kesukaan ku? Tuhan je yg lebih mengetahui.. Hhihi~ And alhamdulillah la masih bole makan nasi. Takot jugak coz dengar banyak cerita ibu2 mengandung first trimaster ada masalah makan nasi sb nt muntah. Kalu tak makan nasi nt bahaya jugak. Cane baby nk dapat protein and membesar dengan baik kan...

Last time masa 6 minggu tu ada jumpa doctor check sb perut cramp sangat.. And doc tros buat scan kat perot. Just g check kat Klinik Ibnu Sina, Cyberjaya.. Dekat sikit la dengan opis. Tp mungkin dia adalah seorang Medical Officer dan tak mampu menjawap soalan2 yang mencabar dari sy. Seriously sy sangat paranoid dengan apa yang jadi dulu tp doc hanya memberi kan info2 yg lebih bersifat general, which is okay la. But not into details as what i expect.

And ini hasil daripada scan klinik masa kandungan lebih kurang 6 minggu... Mungkin juga ada kekangan teknologi disitu menyebabkan scan agak blur and tak dapat nk tgk image. Hanya dot kecik tu je yang nampak menandakan da ada kantung baby. But for me it was good enough. Dapat jugak tengok perkembangan dalam perot dan alhamdulilah kandungan berada dalam rahim (with no ectopic pregnancy symptoms).

6 week pregnancy

Actually sy da pon set appointment dengan Dr Rasliza dari KPJ Kajang Specialist utk check up preganancy masa kandungan 8 minggu. Disebabkan dulu sy ada miscarriage case, kawan2 sume advice utk check up kat specialist terus. At least ada pakar yang monitor pregnancy from week to week. Dan ini adalah result scan sy masa pregnancy lebih kurang 8 minggu... 

8 week pregnancy

Time buat scan procedure dengan doc, da nampak jantung yang berdegup laju sangat dan bole dengar HEARTBEAT ♥  baby. Yang best nye doc bukak speaker lg utk dengar jelas2. Excitednya time tu! :):):)

Dengan jayanya sy telah mendapatkan buku merah. Yang mana dulu tak sempat pon nak ambil. Alhamdulillah. Hihi~ Cost check up kat specialist agak mahal la. Tp guna claim company berbaloi la kot kalu nk dapatkan result and service yang elok sikit.

Cost check up @ KPJ Kajang Specialist Hospital:

Medicine : RM9.00  
Administration Fee : RM1.00
Registration Fee : RM10.00
Consultation : RM70.00
Procedure (Scan) : RM60.00
TOTAL : RM150.00

Sememanganya seorang bakal ibu sangat gembira melihat kandungannya sihat dan berkembang dengan baik. Doakan agar tuhan melindungi anak dalam kandungan ini... Insyaallah ~~~

'' Ya Allah peliharalah anakku selama ia berada di dalam perutku, dan sihatkanlah dia, Engkaulah yang menyembuhkan, tidak ada penyembuhan selain penyembuhan Mu, Penyembuhan yang tidak meninggalkan penyakit. Ya Allah rupakanlah atau bentukkanlah dia yang ada diperut ku dengan rupa yang baik, dan tetapkanlah ke dalam hatinya iman kepada Engkau dan kepada Rasul-Mu.

Ya Allah, keluarkanlah dia dari perutku dengan mudah dan selamat. Ya Allah jadikanlah dia sihat yang sempurna berakal dan pandai, alim dan beramal. Ya Allah panjangkanlah umurnya sihatkanlah badanya, dan baikkanlah akhlaknya, fasihkanlah lisannya, baguskanlah suaranya untuk membaca Al-Quran dan hadis dengan berkat Nabi Muhammad SAW, dan segala puji bagi Allah Tuhan semesta Alam.
