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

Women have a much higher lifetime risk of depression than men do, and a significant factor in this level of risk is the hormonal changes that occur during and after pregnancy. While post-natal depression—and depression in general—can run in families, there's no way to predict for sure whether a woman will develop the condition. Therefore it's good to be aware of what the signs and symptoms are, to make it easier to get help if it becomes necessary.
When the Baby Blues Turns into Something More
Many women experience mild and temporary depression symptoms after having a child. This condition is known as the baby blues, and it affects up to 80% of women who give birth. For most women, the symptoms are very mild, and last only a few days or a week. Women who experience the baby blues typically feel weepy, anxious, or irritable, and may also have mild mood swings. Of women who experience the baby blues, around 20% go on to develop a more severe form called post-natal depression.
Why do Women develop Depression After Giving Birth?
Women experience large and sometimes rapid changes in hormone levels during pregnancy and after giving birth to a child. In particular, levels of estrogen and progesterone increase to very high levels during pregnancy, but drop rapidly to pre-pregnancy levels in the few days immediately a woman gives birth. These changes in hormone levels are so quick that it takes time for the body to adjust, and it's thought that this period of adjustment is the reason why women develop the baby blues. In some cases, however, this mild and transient episode triggers a more serious and prolonged depression. When this happens it's referred to as post-natal depression, a condition that can linger for several weeks or months. Women are more likely to develop post-natal depression if they've had episodes of depression in the past, if other family members have been affected by depression, or if they've experienced other significant life events or problems during their pregnancy.
Signs of Post-Natal Depression
The signs of post-natal depression closely mimic those of other forms of depression, with symptoms including feelings of sadness, hopelessness, worthlessness, anxiety, guilt, and shame; changes in sleeping patterns such as insomnia; difficulty concentrating; and suicidal thoughts. Women who develop post-natal depression may also have trouble bonding with their baby, and this can contribute further to the problem.
Treatment for Post-Natal Depression
Around four-fifths of women experience the baby blues, and this mild form of depression is absolutely normal; however, if the symptoms lasts for longer than ten days or become more severe, a woman is at risk of developing post-natal depression. At this point, it's important to seek support and treatment to enable recovery.
Treatment for depression commonly includes therapy and medication; however, women who are breastfeeding have fewer options for anti-depressant medication due to the risk of the medications being secreted in breast milk. There are a few anti-depressants that are safe for breastfeeding women to take, so breastfeeding women do have some options.
Studies also show that women who breastfeed are less likely to develop post-natal depression, so if you are able to breastfeed it's good to do so. For this reason, doctors don't usually recommend women stop breastfeeding in order to take anti-depressant medication, unless the depression is extremely severe and doesn't respond to other forms of treatment. But remember, if you're not able to breastfeed for any reason, there's absolutely no need to feel guilty, or to worry that your baby's health might be negatively affected. There are definitely benefits to breastfeeding, but babies who are bottle-fed thrive just as well as those who are breastfed.
Support and Self Care
Just as there's no single “right” way to be a parent, there's no “right” way to recover from post-natal depression—it's different for everyone. Some women are able to get through it with family support and therapy, while other women need to take medication for a while. Throughout the depression and treatment, it's important to remember that post-natal depression is nobody's fault, and experiencing this illness doesn't make a woman a bad mother. This is a crucial part of self care, but it's also important to make sure that new parents get plenty of support and help from friends and family, and that a new mother is able to take time out for self care to help her get through those emotional first few days.

Rasanya dah lama tak pergi sale yang macam ni.. Walaupun boleh agak crowd nya masa sale tu nanti, masih consider untuk pergi ;p
Jom lah cuba nasib!
Bukan sahaja breakfast, malahan lunch, tea time and dinner pun susah nak decide nak makan apa. I usually go for nasi.. Nasi for life! Perut melayu sejati! Tapi sekarang tak lalu nak makan nasi especially malam. Kadang-kadang cuma makan roti and sup. Ini bukan kebiasaan.
Rasanya pregnancy kali ni tekak agak mengada.
During first pregnancy, memang ada sickness especially first timer.. kalau takde sickness pun rasa-rasa mcm ada. It started when I was about to detect the pregnancy. Rasanya sampai 4 bulan jugak baru disappear dan digantikan dengan uncomfortable symptom yang lain.
Second pregnancy; tak ada sickness. Selera makan saya hebat. Resulting to 20kg gained throughout the pregnancy. Mungkin ada pening sikit2, tapi jauh lebih mild berbanding first pregnancy.
Third pregnancy (abortion); pun langsung tidak ada sickness. Berkemungkinan the pregnancy has ended at 6weeks jadi tidak ada apa2 pregnancy symptom yang dialami.
Fourth pregnancy; I wish I have pregnancy sickness. Not having the sickness makes me worry.
"Feeling sick is a good sign that your pregnancy hormone levels are high. On the other hand, not having morning sickness isn't necessarily a bad sign."
The earlier weeks, my sickness was very mild. Only at week 8 until now, 12w - ada masa rasa nak baring dan tak perlu buat / fikir apa-apa. Dia punya pening menikam-nikam jiwa dan kepala.
Coping with the sickness is tough especially if you're having something important to do. And we, working mother always have something or many important things to do be it at work or home. Selalunya my morning sickness tidak pula start pada waktu pagi, so sebelum lapa gile cepat2 makan at least sekeping roti. Dan kebiasaannya sekeping roti adalah tidak cukup ha ha ha
Sampai office atau on the way ke office kena ambil heavy breakfast. Pukul 12 lapa balik, jadi cepat-cepat lunch. Pukul 4 lapa lagi.... begitulah seterusnya. Lapar tapi tak tau tekak nak makan apa. Itu adalah stressful.
Yang paling tak best bila masa tidur perut lapar (insert icon marah disini). Sampai termimpi dah pergi makan.
We know that is difficult to overcome the morning sickness completely. Ada orang makan asam, ok.. But I'm not a fan of asam. Air limau asam boi pun boleh.. Ada yang alas perut dengan biskut in between meals, but I need the real heavy meal yang kena dengan tekak! :)
Ada banyak remedies to overcome pregnancy sickness. I read a lot but the only thing that I commonly do is - stuff your stomach with food ;p I'm just going to enjoy this temporary process, entah bila dapat experience macam ni lagi .... :)
