Preggy Diaries: 3rd Trimester #BabyH

Hello third trimester!
The last part of my pregnancy journey! I cannot believe how fast this has flown especially compared to my first time with Aulia'! This last trimester has flown just as fast as the entire pregnancy! I have definitely found myself slowing down a lot more these last few weeks. I also has taken 2 weeks off from work just to rest and do lots of walking (to the mall!). I am currently at 40 weeks and I have gained 11 kgs which I'm super happy with! Baby H in tummy weight about 3.2 kgs. No stretch marks so far. I am a lot bigger (bump-wise) than I was with A so I feel as though I might get lucky. If not who cares I will have another gorgeous person in my life!I used virgin coconut oil on my belly each night. Flawless! 😉
My mind has been quite busy lately trying to get organised for our new house, Aulia' getting into standard 1, and a baby so it can all get a bit much but feeling very blessed. My anxiety is always heightened during pregnancy which I acknowl…

Aulia' Brainybunch Graduation

My sweet girl finally graduated from Kindergarten, what a year! I was so involved with her class this year and attended the PTM every quarter and saw her making very good progress each semester. Yes, rasa nak nangis sebab anak dah besar. Let's just say between me and my husband it was a good thing we had Kleenex on hand! I know people scoff about all the "graduation" ceremonies, but I think it's important to mark the passage of milestones, especially when the child is moving on to a different school. Aulia' is going to standard 1 next year. They grow up so quickly that it's nice to take an hour to reflect on the past year, how much your little one has change and grown and how much is yet to come. I must say, the teachers in Brainybunch ttdi has done a very good job in nurturing them. 


Aulia' my darling, you will always be wonderful, you will always be brave, you will always be beautiful, you will always be intelligent, you will always be strong, you will…

Preggy Diaries: 2nd Trimester

I am overwhelmed with the people who congratulated us ❤❤

Okay just a short story about our 5 months ultrasound check up. My first "legit" ultrasound was carried out by our gynae in KPJ Ipoh, Dr. Zamzida and nothing seeing our baby's heartbeat the first time felt surreal. It's something like I have been very blessed to have this munch. Dr. Zamzida was very happy we finally succeed to naturally conceived and she pray the best for our journey and the baby. Unfortunately we won't be able to do our monthly check up with her because it would be too far for us to go all the way to and fro Ipoh every month. My husband already decided on where to deliver the baby and whom will be my gynae throughout our 10 months journey. He seems very committed for baby no. 2 😊

We started our monthly maternity check up at 12 weeks with Dr. Zunita at Tunku Azizah Maternity Home, and this is our ultrasound results for 20 weeks check up. Alhamdulillah, the baby heart beat is perfectly nor…

We are Pregnant!

Disclaimer: I have keep this in my draft for so long, somehow decided to keep it a secret because we haven't meet the gynae and check the baby's heartbeat yet when we had the pre-test at home. But since it's official, I am posting it now. All I can say is-All praise to Allah. We are finally pregnant! 💖

If you have been reading my blog, it's not a secret that we're TTC since last year. Our original plan is to try another 6 months after my HSG test. Been on medication for few months after my HSG and egg (ovum) monitorings, spending money to buy meds, monthly check up and ultrasounds has gotten us so exhausted and we finally decided to stay out of TTC business for some times until this year.

Last April, during my girls trip to Acheh with Aulia', I felt this kind of having butterflies in my stomach. Later during the trip, I felt seasick from travelling via the speed boat and snorkeling (Little that I know it was a morning sickness!). But it wasn't so serious s…

Aulia' first dental visit

We were a little late getting to it, but Aulia' finally had her first visit dental check up with my friend, Dr. Intan Munirah from Dr. Smile dental clinic Subang Bestari. When we got out of the car, she happily skipped to the front door and felt very excited!
Intan was so efficient, she had Aulia' sit with her on the chair and showed her all the tools first. Then it was time to get started, Intan gave her a pink sunglasses, so Aulia' put them on, laid on the table and was ready for her cleaning and check up. Intan get her to count her teeth together while holding a mirror 😄 
I was so proud of how great she did, and I think she was proud of herself too 😇 

#momdaughtergoals : Weh Island Trip

There were always been in my wishlist to do those mom-daughter goals and I have so many of them in my lists. One of them is to travel the world with my daughter. However, it took me guts to abandoned my 9-5 job and venture the world 😂 but, one day we will, InsyaAllah.


I am beyond excited to tell you about the epic experience that me and my daughter had during our visit to Aceh Indonesia. If you have the opportunity to visit Aceh, there really is one resort that you can choose for your stay - Iboih Weh Island.

On the car ride to the airport, Aulia' was extremely reserved and quiet. I talked her ear off and I think she may have been quite a bit intimidating, knowing her father wouldn't be with us the whole journey.   We took early morning flight from Kuala Lumpur to Banda Aceh and arrived 50 minutes later. She woke up from her nap that morning refreshed and full of smiles. I'm happy!


We begin our journey by visiting the Tsunami Museum, Abdul Rahman Mosque and then to other…

The Durian Feast at SS2

Guilty!
We are the Durian hantu!

This is our first ever visit to the SS2 durian stall where they sells all types of durian including the Musang King. My daughter inherit this interest in durians last year when her grandfather bought her durians in Ipoh and teach her how to eat 😄 legit!

The durian buffet stall in SS2 set up the tables and chairs for their customer to enjoy the durians.
You see how much this girl loves the durian 😋 We opt for durian kampung that cost us RM18 per kilo.



yums!

Then and Now: of Aulia'

I know I haven't post any Then and Now post since 2013.  Imma slacker, sigh! I kept thinking about just how far we've come and how grateful I am to watch my daughter grow up. Sometimes I get flash backs to the tough (more to bless) days of handling a toddler. I literally have vivid memories of lounging together with my daughter on the bed, starring up the ceiling with tears dripping into my ears, feeling like a supermommy 😉 Call me ridiculous, but I've been thinking so long today on what to upload as my first post of 2017. I wish I could write something as jolly as my friends feel about their awesome new year celebration, and although my years has personally has been blessed too, I don't feel like a whole-fully by posting up my academic post cause that's what happen since I was too busy finalizing my doctorate and neglecting my blog post since our anniversary trip last year 😂

TBH, I don't have any new year resolutions except to enjoy my life watching my kidd…
