Weight Gain

At 35 weeks and found myself OVERWEIGHT is so uncool!
I already took initiative of low carb diet (1 rice only a day)
But at this last trimester,
Im so craving into anything sweets&cheesy!

Ok!Ok! Ill try to control.
I really hope it is just water

I found this chart while googling but forgotten the source!

Weeks Weight gain (Pounds) Weight gain (kgs)

0-10 weeks No weight gain No weight gain
10-14 weeks 3-4 pounds 1.5 kg
14-20 weeks 4-6 pounds 2.5 kgs
20-30 weeks 10-12 pounds 4.5 kgs
30-36 weeks 6 pounds 2.7 kg
36-38 weeks 2 pounds 1.0 kg
38-40 weeks Almost no weight gain Almost no weight gain

Total 25-30 pounds* 12-14 kg

First trimester (0-14 weeks):
In early pregnancy, weight should remain constant (It could sometimes even fall due to lack of appetite and morning sickness). Real weight gain should begin only in the 10th week when the circulating blood volume begins to increase. Food intake will also increase as nausea and vomiting decrease by the 14th week. You must desist from eating wrong types of foods. Many doctors also recommend that you take supplements of vitamin B, iron, calcium and folic acid.

Second trimester (14-30 weeks):
Between the 20th and 30th weeks, you should be gaining approximately 4.5 kg ( or 1 pound a week). If you gain significantly more than 4.5 kgs in these 10, you could be heading for a condition called pre-eclamsia.

Third trimester (30-40 weeks):
Although you are still expected to gain less than 1 pound of weight a week, you may notice a dramatic increase in weight after the 30th week. This increase in weight is due to excessive fluid retention, one of the ills of pregnancy. Limited intake of fluids and salt, and keeping your bed elevated may help mitigate the fluid retention problem.

Weight gain decreases after the 35th week, and stops altogether after the 38th week. Many women even lose weight 7-10 days before labour due to a reduction in hormone levels.

Pantang Larang - Ibu Mengandung

Hi guys,

I’m writing, no actually more of compiling this PANTANG LARANG all because my sister seems to be following them quite strictly …to some extend I lost word in giving advise to her from my reading…plus sometimes it makes me laugh especially when she ask me silly question or just a statement like “ Org mengandung kalau mandi malam nnt baby dia suka nangis malam2 “ …or “Org mengandung kena makan semua yg dorang idam sbb nnt if not baby dia akan keluar air liur meleleh jer sbb kempunan” I personally have no offence to those who believe in pantang larang org tua2 / midwives tales, plus with over 29 years of life I lived, I believe in lots of thing – logic tidak semestinya betul, keyakinan berhasil lebih dari usaha etc…so I keep myself amused with all her pantang larang and kepada ibu-ibu mengandung yg sudi membaca, thanks and please read at your own risk : )

P/s : As a muslim, always believe that God is the ultimate decision maker, constant prayer and trust to Allah will always keep you at peace no matter what the outcome will be.
P/s/s: Saya berdoa agar adik dikurniakan bayi perempuan yg sihat dan sempurna akal dan sifatnya. Semoga dia menjadi anak yg solehah dan menghiburkan hati setiap yang mendekatinya. Amin.
So here is some of pantang larang list : -
  1. Avoid air kelapa and nenas during 1st trimester – takut kandungan mudah gugur
  2. Jangan ikat mati benang, plastic and etc – nnt susah bersalin
  3. Jangan mengetuk dinding rumah - dikhuatiri uri bayi akan melekat pada rahim, biarpun bayi telah selamat dilahirkan.
  4. Jangan mandi malam – nnt air ketuban berlebihan.
  5. Jangan banyak minum ais – nnt baby terlalu besar, susah nak lahir.
  6. Jangan lilit tuala pada leher dan pada rambut - dikhuatiri tali pusat akan melilit leher bayi.
  7. Elakkan membuat kerja2 menjahit - dikhuatiri tali pusat anak akan berbelit dan sukar melahirkan.
  8. Jangan tengok cerita seram – nnt baby kenan
  9. Kurangkan mkn pisang – nnt rambut baby terlalu lebat.
  10. Jangan mkn betik muda - getah yg ada padanya menyebabkan kandungan boleh gugur.
  11. Jangan keluar rumah pada waktu petang / senja – nnt hantu usik.
  12. Jangan lihat gerhana bulan / matahari – dikuatiri anak yang bakal lahir cacat / berkulit gelap.
  13. Jangan duduk atas tangga – dikhuatiri mendatangkan kecelakaan kepada ibu waktu nak melahirkan.
  14. Jangan pikul batu – dikuatiri anak dalam kandungan menjadi lumpuh.
  15. Jangan tanam pokok pisang - boleh menyebabkan anak berkepala besar yang luar biasa.
  16. Jangan susun tempurung – nnt anak berkepala botak.
  17. Jangan suka duduk depan pintu - nnt susah baby nak keluar.
  18. Do not allow husband tiup seruling / alat bunyi-bunyian – nnt anak kuat menangis
  19. Do not allow husband sembelih / memburu binatang - dikuatiri anak yg lahir nnt cacat / kenan

* Wallahuallam, yg baik jadi teladan, yang buruk benteng sempadan.

Something to share

Alhamdullilah, thanks to Mya, this blog is finally up and welcoming all readers out there to share their moments towards motherhood.

I guess I can’t really share much into this blog (so I'll drop by writing in once in a while) because the fact that I’m not a mother to be is sumthing painful to accept but redha is the key to everything that happen to my entire name of life when sumthing happen not as what you want or expect.

Anyhow I thanks god, for many good reason He actually gave me the chance to feel how it is like to feel pregnant although not for long ( 10 weeks to be exact, when a miscarriage occur after that), as for now I’m hoping and praying that it will happen again sumday and certainly hoping a smooth sailing one : )

I guess is not wrong for me to share a little bit story of mine throughout this never ending journey of motherhood to you readers, as I believe certain things in life is worth sharing even if it is with strangers coz we never know how it can actually touch and help sumone in return.

I’ve been married for about 3 and half year with the same person I fall in love 9 years back, everything happen smooth for us, alhamdullilah with the blessing from our parents we were married in 2006. A year after marriage, we plan to have kids but after 6 months of trying (based on ovulation date and etc) nothing happen, so we decided to go for gynae check-up ( I always believe it is my problem because I never really had a regular period as it can happen like twice a month and always strongly believe that being irregular is the culprit behind all the hassle) , so the gynae confirm that I was diagnosed with PCOS ( polycystic ovarian syndrome ) a failure of the ovary to release eggs and resulted to cumulated cyst in both of the ovaries, what cause this is simply because of hormonal imbalance that has occur during my first moments of having period, the gynae told me to be patience coz there are many treatment for this and one of it was to have the ovarian drilling a procedure where they will puncture the ovary with small incision / hole and the result is that I should have a regular period cycle and ovulation will happen naturally. We went through it…and yes my period is a bit regular although sumtimes it can actually lengthen to a 45 days cycle… (Another issue of how can you track your ovulation when your cycle is longer that normal)…a year later, not wanting to lose hope both me and hubby agree to undergo IUI (intra uterine insemination) sumwhere last nov 2008, but god decide nothing happen. We still try naturally and stop the frequent visit to gynae ( cost and mentally tired, I just gave up in visiting the gynae), Mungkin tuhan tidak mahu hambanya berputus asa…when I was confirmed pregnant in the middle of Feb 2009, a happiness that I can never described for the prayers has actually making a huge progress…well the pregnancy has not really been stable at the very early age, but we try our best to keep it viable, namun Tuhan lebih mengetahui..and finally I had a miscarriage, another sadness that I just do not know how to describe…but alhamdullilah I’m still very much alive and very much at peace…now I can take things a lot ( a lot and lot easier, in fact I told myself…If I’m not chosen to be a mother in this life, I have to accept it and channel my love towards sumthing else or maybe sumone else) no…I’m not giving up, just that I am much at peace now…if it happen again..I thanks God for the chance…and even if it doesn’t happen also, I still thanks God for having this stand now…

I’m happy that Mya is already half through her journey ( sumhow I understand how she felt when she lost all her previous pregnancy) and praying that this will be a successful one. I am happy also that my only sister is ready to be a mother and expecting to deliver by end of nov this year…at least those who I care is realizing the dream…and surely I can enjoy the same happiness ( although not the same) with them :)

Reason why I’m writing this : -
1 – Simply becoz I wanna be part of this blog, although I’m not expecting but I read quite a lot on pregnancy and fertility issue : )
2- An advise to all hoping mother to be, listen to your body needs…eat healthily coz the baby is the product of what you eat, seek for your gynae advise especially on medical issue that can never be explained by your mother, sister or frens.
3- Traditional way may help but let it be just for massage and pure akar kayu medicine to promote your fertility.
4- Learnt to accept everything that happens to us is with a reason that is good for us…sumtimes we cry but we must never forget that there are others who cried more for even greater challenge and obstacle.
5 – Lastly, take things easy in life ( this one is a constant reminder to myself : ))

Luv & Take care people!

Especially keeping up to a stable emotions and hope for tomorrow
Additional to mine were an Ectopic Pregnancy,
That resulted one of my tube fallopian to be thrown away.

And today, (3rd trial) I was declared pregnant.
Learning from previous story,
I decided to fully bed-ridden for 6 weeks

And getting full medical support & observation by amongst best gyne in KL
(Includes allowing myself to get injections every 2days & consistent duphaston intake)Alhamdulillah.. I am now carrying the baby safely.
Although one of them already pronounced ‘meninggal’ at 10th weeks (It was twins!)
Which they called as ‘twin vanishing syndrome’.
I still thank god for giving me this hope one the survived baby.

So all mother-to-be that reading this humble blog..
