Jaundice dan anak2 ku, berpisah tiada..

0 comments
Jaundice; common condition untuk newborn baby. Apa yang tidak common apabila common tinggi 300 and above, dan ibu dalam pantang terpaksa ulang alik klinik atau sambung menetap di hospital untuk jaga baby jaundice. For weeks! Dan ketiga-tiga anak pun jaundice high risk! Heuheu

Cerita jaundice Amir 

Dan Umar
http://herlifetreasure.blogspot.com/2013/03/2nd-son-jaundice-lagi.html?m=1

Jadi bila pregnant kan Iman ni, cuba consume virgin coconut oil dan susu kambing - katanya boleh mengelakkan jaundice. Tapi nampaknya masih terpaksa berdepan dengan baby jaundice. Hari ke-6, check kuning Iman di klinik kesihatan, the SB reading was 18.7 (317.9). Kategori high risk.

He was admitted to KPJ then for 3 days. Hari pertama turun ke 12, hari ke-2 turun lagi 9.6. Tapi doc suruh stay sementara supaya reading boleh turun lagi. Last SB reading was 7 before Iman can be discharged. 

We have to come for follow up after 3 days. I had a mixed feeling sebab after 2 days Iman discharged, nampak macam kuning2 lagi at his tounge, eyes, face and body. Ayo, my last experience with Amir and Umar - both pun prolonged jaundice.
So SB reading masa follow up was high again, doc advised suruh admit. Again. Uwaaa..

Ingatkan mungkin 1 malam aje kot, tapi SB reading after one night of phototherapy still borderline, 9.6. Kenalah stay lagi. Aduhai, nasib badan. Poor baby Iman.

First admission

Mommy and Abang Umar were so happy Iman boleh balik.

Baby Iman after first phototherapy treatment.

Not long after, kena admit balik.. Abang2 rindu nak jumpa Iman but kids are not allowed to enter nursery. So here they are at the waiting lounge





From KPJ Kajang with love.

Pregnancy and Birthing Tips

0 comments
Based on my personal experience and studies ...

1. Pregnancy Supplement
i. Acid Folic for first trimester
ii. Ganilia


It was my first time trying this brand. Apparently UKMSC has started prescribing their patients to take this supplement from 2nd trimester onwards. My previous pregnancies, Prof prescribed Obimin plus. This supplement contains minerals, vitamins and essential fatty acid (DHA). Since it also contains calcium, I never had experienced leg cramps / simpul biawak. Itu adalah heaven. Ha ha sangat torturing bila syok tido tiba-tiba kaki kena kejutan elektrik dan perlu kejut husband 10 kali sebelum dia tersedar dan beri bantuan kecemasan.
Selain itu, biasanya akan mengalami gusi berdarah especially masa berus gigi. Masa pregnant Umar it was even worse, pada waktu normal pun gusi tiba-tiba berdarah. Tak pasal-pasal jadi Raja Bersiong. So, saya bagi 5 bintang kpd supplement ni.

iii. Virgin Coconut Oil
 You may want to check out the benefits of taking this oil. A long list. But what attract me the most is to avoid episiotomy and jaundice hihihi These two are scary heuheuheu

I took 3 bottles starting from month 6. 1-2 tablespoon daily.

iv. Fresh goat milk
Luckily office mate's father-in-law is one of the suppliers. So I took 2-3 times a week throughout pregnancy.

2. Easy delivery and avoiding episiotomy 

I emphasize a lot on avoiding episiotomy Ngeeee.. Pengalaman berpantang sendiri dan ada stiches masa Amir dulu, it took a month to heal. And really painful. Nak pee pee and poo poo pun can be a nightmare. Heh!
So dari masa mengandungkan Umar, study kalau ada apa-apa yang boleh membantu untuk avoid cut masa delivery. Salah satu cara, virgin coconut oil tadi. And ada beberapa methods lain jugak.

i. Kegel exercise to strengthen the muscle, easy to push.
ii. Perineum massage may increase the area's ability to stretch, leading to less need for an episiotomy and fewer natural tears. But I have time limitation to massage ;p so I cuma sapu gel from mothercare ni to that area.


Katanya start pakai 4-6 weeks leading to labor. Kebiasaannya at 36w. I normally start early knowing the possibility deliver early.

iii. Squats 

Katanya kena buat 300 kali for easy delivery, pengsan! Biasanya during shower time (the best time to do it!) I performed this exercise. Kalau buat depan budak-budak ni habis kena gelak.

Buat squat masa perut besar, badan gedempol adalah tidak sexy hihi

Jangan lupa eh buat 300 kali! He he

And, bila dah dekat labor say 36w. Boleh buat deep squats. Oh I love this! Tak perlu berpenat lelah turun naik, and this is very relaxing. 


Masa Amir: Air ketuban pecah tapi takde contraction and jalan buka cuma 2cm until the next day. Doctor got to help me to widen the opening to allow labor. Ot was almost 24h after the waterbag has broken.

Masa Amir memang takde buat exercise sebab sedikit skeptic yeke membantu I thought it was all natural process. Tapi bila dah experience jalan tak bukak2 selepas air ketuban pecah and induce, kena cut n jahit lagi, baru ada kesedaran unt berbuat sesuatu ;p

Jadi masa pregnant Umar, start buat squats and apply perineal gel.

Masa Umar: Start dengan contraction, it was mild when the cervix opening was 3-4cm. 2 hours after that i gave birth to Umar. And no cut or natural tear.

Masa Iman: Air ketuban pecah without contraction at 4.15am. Mild contraction started 45 minutes later. Intense contraction started around 7-ish, I was 5-6cm dilated. Reached labor room at 8am, 7cm dilated. Gave birth to Iman at 8.38am without cut or nature tear. Thanks Allah.


3. Avoiding stretch marks 

Okay this is not cool. Most of us hate it.

Masa Amir: I use Palmer's cocoa butter then BioOil. Cocoa butter was fine tapi I didn't like BioOil at all. Too oily, tapi perut still gatal and I didn't see it reducing the stretch marks. 

Masa Umar: I stick to Cocoa Butter. No stretch marks until 35-36w. Maybe memang bila perut meregang habis rupanya ada stretch marks kat lower abdomen. Tapi perut masih gatal2 not too bad macam masa Amir.

Masa Iman (recent pregnancy): I started applying aloe vera gel since before I was pregnant. It helps to reduce previous stretch marks and terus pakai masa pregnant to my surprise kalini no new stretch marks! Love it! It's cheaper than other lotion/oil to reduce strech marks.

I tried many brands - Nature Republic, Always21 and the most recent I bought from watson - work the same to me.



And of top of everything is doa :)


My Baby Iman at 10 days..

Another Hidayat Syah - Adik Amir & Umar

0 comments
It such a waste I didn't write much about my pregnancy this time. In future tak dapat nak baca. So, kalini bertekad untuk tidak procrastinate dan terus tulis. Jyeah! Lebih kurang 6 jam selepas another Hidayat Syah dilahirkan..


Macam biasa, every pregnancy, bila cecah 31w aja akan bermula la contraction. Bezanya kalini sekali aje mommy pergy emergency in case memang in labor. Disebabkan sekali itu bukanlah in labor, lain kali bila contraction attack I just duduk diam-diam kat rumah. Tapi bila 35w dah takde contractions yg kuat - which berharap jugak ada so that dilation boleh bermula. Cuma selepas 35w, rasa extra fatigue.. Sakit dekat lower abdomen, difficult to sleep - sepatutnya common and is expected masa 3rd trimester but I found out it was so difficult to deal with. Until yesterday (12/8), memandangkan harini (13/8) ada checkup dengan Prof, so nak mintak cuti seminggu. Tak boleh tahan.

13/8 Thursday, 28 Syawal.

My pregnancy turned 36w. Umar was born at 36 while amir lahir masa 37w. From the beginning i suspected memang akan deliver awal. Tapi memandangkan takde pun contraction lately, i was looking forward 37w onwards. Rasa nak nangis memikirkan lagi 2 mggu nak jalan macam penguin. 

Ceritanya, terjaga pukul 4 sebab perut mengeras - selalunya sebab bladder penuh. Sangat mengantuk sebab tadi tidur pun lewat, susah nak lelap mata sebab memikirkan bila nak bersalin hehe tapi tiba-tiba rasa ada air keluar which I thought i peed. So quickly masuk toilet. I thought semacam je banyaknya. Mula rasa cemas dan bulu roma naik. Keluar dari bilik air rasa ada nak keluar lagi. About 5 minutes after that baru lah rasa sure that was air ketuban. So kejutkan Ami yang baru 2 jam tidur. Since air keluar sikit-sikit I did not panick much. Jadi sempat kemas barang and amir n umar pun sibuk bangun jugak. But it was good i can see and talk to them sebelum ke hospital :)


Lepas tinggalkan Amir and Umar kat rumah ibu dia. We went straight to Emergency, by 7 sampai. By the time dah habis buat CTG, contraction makin kuat. Lama jugak nak tunggu doc sampai check dilation. At that time, dah dilate 5-6cm so akan dibawa naik ke labor room. Sangat cemas. He he he tak sangka pula ini harinya.

Memandangkan patient katil sebelah di Emergency tu dah dilated 9cm and kena tolak naik katil terus, saya yang baru 5-6 duduk kat wheelchair ni ditinggalkan sementara waktu ;p lama jugak tunggu, sempat la merasa contraction yang sangat kuat, setiap 5 minit masa duduk kat wheelchair. Waaa nak nangis (sebab takut)


Mungkin around 8 baru sampai labor room. Masa ni contraction dah buat rasa nak meneran. But in my mind, baru 6 mana boleh teran. Kurang sikit cemas. 

Kemudian nurse check jalan, 7cm. Tidak syak lagi kenapa contraction sakit rasa nak teran. Lepas lebih kurang 5 min masuk labor room, Prof datang. Dia kata 'teran teran' maybe berlawak. Lawak cemas namanya. Nurse pun masih lagi pasang drip. Tapi rupanya memang iye dah boleh teran especially mmg rasa nak teran. Alhamdulillah, proses meneran kalini jauh lebih baik dari 2 yang lepas dan jauh lebih singkat. 8.37am adik Amir Umar selamat dilahirkan. Contraction kalini memang lebih sakit and only this time ada rasa nak meneran, so I guess that helps a lot untuk senang teran.

Lebih bersyukur sebab semua dipermudahkan, dari air ketuban pecahnya, sehinggalah ke labor room. Everything s in control. And now (3.23pm) dah boleh rileks2 :)


Again no cut or tear this time,harapnya dipermudahkan lagi untuk berpantang. 


So here u go, our hero (again! X2)

REVIEW: 9th Maternity & Children Expo, 27-29 March 2015 at Mid Valley Exhibition Centre

1 comments
Awal pagi tadi dah terpacak di Midvalley nak shopping barang-barang baby and abang baby.


Pagi bagi saya, pagi lagi mereka ini sampai dan menunggu depan entrance ....


Sampai kat sana dalam pukul 9.45 (since kata start pukul 10) tapi entah pukul berapa la diorang ni sampai. Syabas!


Exhibition details


Nak lagi details boleh pergi ke website atau facebook event ni atau facebook page maternity and children expo.


List of exhibitor

Maybe kedai-kedai online ada yang tidak ada dalam list ni. So sebenarnya lebih banyak la exhibitor yang participate event ni.


Kebanyakkan maybe almost all products memang murah dan ada diskaun berbanding harga biasa. So worth to go! Especially kalau nak beli diapers, kebanyakkan brand ada and having  promotion. Take note, sila expect Q  yang panjang kalau nak beli Petpet, Drypers, Mamypoko. Tadi saya beli Diapex, tak perlu Q.

Kalini tak banyak pun shopping barang. Sedikit barang newborn seperti baju. Brand yang ada tadi Pureen and Tollyjoy, sepasang baju RM12-RM13. Time ni lah menyesal tak beli baju masa Pureen warehouse sale, RM6 je sepasang. Grrrrrrrrr!


Selain tu, beli barut. Tak ingat nama kedai tapi salah satu tu sebaris dengan booth Spectra. Kedai ni dia jual RM5 sehelai kalau beli 5 helai. Dan perlulah beli dalam kiraan 5, 10, 15 .... kalau 7 helai, yang lagi 2 kira harga normal. Ceit.

Dan lagi satu kedai jual RM7 sehelai, beli 5 free 2. Still sehelai RM5. Ini dari kedai Mydreams Concept.



Ada jenis tali atau strap. I prefer tali sebab kebiasaannya baby saya keluar awal, saiz kecil so kalau tali mudah nak adjust size.


Alright, itu sahaja report untuk kali ini. Pesanan penaja adalah, silalah bawak trolley, luggage atau ada jugak yang ambil trolley dari Aeon hehehe.. Tapi fikir2 kan lah nak bawak trolley Aeon tu sebab kat dalam nanti laluan tak berapa nak beso, dapat pulak lalu kat tepi booth diapers yang mana orang beratur panjang mungkin akan menyebabkan kesesakan lalu lintas.





HAVE FUN SHOPPING!!!!

Antenatal Checkup at 15w

0 comments
Yesterday we went for a regular antenatal checkup. This time, macam excited sikit.. To confirm what we have seen during the last checkup. Amir and Umar pun ikut, basically I want them to meet their Atok gynae.

From Kuala Pilah we shoot to HUKM. Yang paling best, it was my birthday yesterday  and special treatment for me was became their driver.

Ketiga-tiga mereka tidur. Ceit.

So, alhamdulillah baby looks normal and healthy. He's measured at 15w4d. (It's a he???) Oh, yes. Insha allah

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha


And this is the supplement Prof suggested for me to take.


This supplement is all in one; DHA, multivitamins and mineral. For details click here. According to Prof, this supplement has just been introduced couple of years ago. Before this Prof selalunya prescribe Obimin plus or di hospital lain mungkin prescribe Neurogain.


A little bit history on my current pregnancy;

My LMP was on 4th Dec.

  • At my 7 weeks, I went for an ultrasound and the baby is measured at 5w. 2 weeks off. Juga ada brown spots masa early pregnancy made me so nervous. Click here for more.
  • Repeat ultrasound after 3 weeks to see if the baby is or not growing. Alhamdulillah, everything was normal. Baby is then measured at 8w, walaupun tak tally dengan pregnancy age tapi tally dengan first measurement.
  • 2 mggu lepas tu start checkup di UKMSC, sepatutnya mggu ke-12 pregnancy, baby is measured at 10w, tally dengan measurement sebelumnya. Alhamdulillah sekali lagi.
  • 4 minggu lepas pada tu (which is checkup on 23rd March), baby is measured 15w3d. Pregnancy week is 15w4d. Only 1 day different --> mommy adalah happy! So keep growing.. Amir dah sibuk tanya whether the baby is big enough to be delivered. Heuheuheu
