TTC Part 6: BBT Charting

Hello my fellow ttc'ian ..

Setakat ni dah 7 bulan aku dan husband meng 'TTC' (bukannya sebelum ni tak serious, tapi pendekatan yang dilakukan tu lebih serious pada tahun ini, hehe). Kalau nak cakap pasal charting, sejak awal tahun ni memang telah wujud satu buku yang merekodkan segala details especially OPK Test, CM discharge, Period Timetable and akak juga join Glow community. Ada apps dia boleh la download ye. Memang bagus Apps tu untuk fellow TTC sekalian :) Boleh record daily temperature, weight, spotting, CM discharge, physical symptoms, emotion, macam-macam lagi. Berdasarkan apa yang anda rekod tu, Glow community akan bagi 'insight' la untuk reference anda. 

Every time ada appointment dengan Gynae sama ada ujian darah atau ultrasound, semua akan direkodkan dalam buku tu. Cuma sebelum ni belum cuba lagi untuk charting BBT (Basal Body Temperature) sebab tak gigih kan pagi-pagi sebelum bangun kena ambil body temperature setiap hari pada waktu yang sama. Kalau anda memang gigih BBT charting anda memang seorang wanita yang RARE! tahniah:)

Setakat 7 bulan ni belum berjaya conceived lagi even dah 2 cycle Clomid dengan Premarin, blood test work, follicle count ultrasound and egg monitoring. 

Maka baru-baru ni je aku rasa nak buat BBT charting. Terpaksa la gigih. Itupun sebab OPK results aku memang caca-marba sepanjang tidak ambil Clomid. Memang tak jumpa-jumpa dark 2 lines tu!

Aku cadangkan rekod  BBT dengan CM discharge. Lama-lama after rekod tu you all boleh la tau macam mana ovulation pattern uols. Lebih sadis lagi CM discharge akak pun caca-marba. Itu yang perlu buat BBT Charting dikk...

Cara untuk ambil BBT: 

Ambil bacaan SEBELUM bangun tidur, sebelum cium-cium anak korang/husband atau sebelum pusing sana-sini sambil tenung-tenung ceiling. Set alarm pada waktu yang sama setiap pagi. Biological clock akak ni memang akan terjaga pukul 5.30 pagi. Jadi dah selit-selit dah thermometer siap-siap bawah bantal sebelum tidur.

Ada tiga cara untuk ambil BBT
1) Underarm
2) bawah lidah
3) vaginally

Ikut la korang yang mana selesa ye. Tapi selepas mengkaji-kaji cara BBT Charting, ada doctor advice untuk ambil bawah lidah dengan position yang sama setiap hari. Sebab kadang-kadang suhu badan kita boleh jadi terlalu panas selepas berkelubung dengan selimut sepanjang malam. Haa dah la akak ni jenis tidur mesti nak ada selimut kan.. Jadi akak consistent aja la ambil BBT bawah lidah setiap hari. 

BBT Thermometer dengan normal thermometer yang anak akak pakai tu lain ye. Haa..jangan tak tau. Tapi ada pendapat orang kata boleh je mana-mana. Tapi untuk lebih sensitif pakai la BBT Thermometer. Memang susah juga nak cari BBT thermometer ni, banyak tempat cari tak jumpa. Pegi Guardian, Watson, Tesco, Giant semua tak ada. 

Last-last yang ada kat Farmasi Caring je. haa caring sangat akak suka! Harga BBT Thermometer dalam RM60++. Mahal la sikit dari normal thermometer, tapi okay ape. 

Thermometer ni sangat sensitif sebab dia akan measure up to 2 decimal place and setiap kali anda ambil BBT, thermometer akan rekod bacaan akhir anda. Jadi tak payah la kau celik mata nak kena tulis berapa bacaan kau kan.. siang-siang nanti aje la. 

Mulakan charting sejak Cycle Day 1 (1st day period anda) sehingga last day of Cycle Day (CD) before the next period. Kalau anda Ovulate,  body temperature anda akan tinggi dari kebiasaan sehingga habis anda ovulate. Nasihat dari doctor akak: Don't forget to 'baby dance' (BD) every other day during your fertile window. Yang bab ni semua pun pandai. Tapi bila masa nak BD meh akak bagitahu...

Jika anda guna OPK during ovulation window anda (test OPK pada sebelah petang i.e 2.00 or 3.00 p.m. sebab masa ni HCG anda pada bacaan optimum) dan dapat detect 2 dark lines: within 24 to 36 hours telur anda akan keluar..bila nak BD? mulakan pada malam tersebut, malam lusa dan malam tulat. haa. lagi elok kalau sehari sebelum anda ovulate anda dah BD. Sebab sperm boleh hidup around 5 days. So bila-bila masa anda ovulate, sperm sudah standby. Haa akak cakap pandai kan.. akak masih belum berjaya dik. hehe!

Ni contoh untuk anda charting 

Memandangkan usaha-usaha yang dilakukan masih belum berjaya lagi untuk conceived, maka bulan ni dah set appointment dgn Gynae untuk buat HSG (Hysterosalpingogram) atau tubal xray. Jadi kita tunggu aje la resultnya. Nanti sambung lagi okay, pengalaman HSG dan costnya :)

Baby dust to all my fellow TTCian!

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t..
B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays.

So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks for being so understanding! I am grateful! Tutu you say?! Of course! and…

DIY Dulang Hantaran Fresh Flowers

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Last week was my BIL E-day. So I was assigned by my MIL to do the 'Dulang Hantaran' and it decorations including all the goodies inside the dulang.. since this is only the engagement event, not so much personal items to be included in the dulang except for the rings.. both for merisik and engagement..
Since last time during my Nikah day, I did the DIY dulang hantaran using the artificial flowers and this time around I was thinking to do it with the fresh flowers. I purposely wanted it that way just because I can save a lot of time (since I am way too busy with my PhD study and I have to travel to and fro KL-JB) and at the same time we can avoid the hustle of keeping the dulang covered with dust in the store room. Lol..talking about experience huh!
And most importantly.. we can save a lot of money.. Lemme show you the trick..

Sending off dulang for fresh flower decorations can cost you up to RM75 to RM150 per tray excluding the items inside the dulang. Mi…

Hans birth story

After nine long months, no wait, after ten long months we finally get to hold our baby boy in our arms and announce his arrival to our family and friends.
It was Tuesday, 2nd January 2018 I was at 40+1 weeks pregnant. I had a stressful week prior. A lot was going on with family, getting ready for A's primary school, trying to get ready for the baby and also nesting like a crazy woman! I was in a complete organising, cleaning frenzy, with my victim being the kitchen.

A few weeks before I went into labour I had been experiencing what I thought were Braxton Hicks contractions (with Aulia' I was induced which is very intense from the start so I assumed these contraction couldn't be pre-labour as it wasn't too painful). The Braxton Hicks continued over a couple of weeks and then nearly to new year I was very nervous the baby did not show any signs to come out. I can't really explain exactly how I felt, but I was ridiculously emotional. Most of the days I was crying my …
