Pregnancy Brain

Mr. Fruitheart has been the most informative person during my first day pregnancy until now. He knows what to do, what to expect and very patience. He even subscribed to the Babybump website. Here was what he showed me on my week 24, day 4, 2nd trimester.

You set your car keys on the counter—you know you did—but they aren’t there now. If it seems like these scatter-brained moments are happening more and more often, you’re not alone. All of those hormone fluctuations are causing the all-too-common phenomenon known as “Pregnancy Brain”, which happens to many moms-to-be at some point. Unfortunately, short of carrying a sticky note pad around to jot down constant reminders to yourself, there’s not much you can do to stave off the occasional flightiness and forgetfulness. So just laugh it off and use hormones as your scapegoat while you still can. Chances are, those around you will cut you some much-deserved slack.

I was laughing while reading it. I never knew there was a phenomenon called 'Pregnancy Brain'. I thought as I am getting older, I forget easily. Once, I forgot to take my handbag together which I just put it on the chair for 5 seconds! I went straight to the car and left the house. We had to turn back to the house to get it. Next, I thought I had left my phone on my office table, but it was not there. Can you imagine, I have to go up and looked for it when it was already inside my bag?

It was the day when kiddo's morning school was on holiday. Early morning we dropped him off at the nursery as usual. I took his bag and he was supposed to stay there. I told him to stay in the car and asked why he wanted to go out. He was a bit blur and Mr. Fruitheart was staring at me. I was like.. why? Eh! Suddenly.. Sorry son, I forgot that you need to go in as well. We burst into laughter.

Until today, whenever I forget things they will bring this story up. Teasing mummy. And I thought I lost my brain somewhere. Poor me! Blame the pregnancy hormone boys.

ASTRO: Just Because of RM10.45

On last Thursday, we had an issue with our ASTRO. We reached home and as usual, kiddo switched on the TV and click on her fave channel. However, there was a message:

We apologise for the service interruption. To resume service please SMS: Astro RCO XXXXX(Smartcard number) and send to 66688. For customers in Brunei, please call 151. (TCI)

So I sent an SMS, and got a reply:
RM0.00 You are currently not eligible for this transaction. Please make payment immediately to enjoy full ASTRO services again. Thank you.

Our ASTRO has been barred?? Mr. Fruitheart checked our history payment and confirmed we had paid. So, I had to call ASTRO. I called the toll free line and since I'm using the ASTRO IPTV, I was being transferred to another line.

I asked the customer service representative to check and she told me our ASTRO account has an outstanding payment. I was like WHAT? Outstanding payment? How much? Oh no! Did Mr. Fruitheart paid to the wrong account? Because I had 2 under my name.


Confinement Packages / Pakej Berpantang

During my last pregnancy, I hired a confinement lady (CL) from Jemari tradisional to take care of me after I delivered my baby girl. This time around I have not decided yet where I will be staying during my confinement days and not sure if I will get the same CL from JT.

So, I have started to search for confinement lady / confinement packages / post natal packages / post natal care/ penjaga pantang / pakej pantang / pakej urut bersalin on the Internet. I found few that looks OK but some of the websites were not updated. I do not know if they're still on business.

So here are the lists:

Dilemma: Taska / Nursery for The Girls

We're back to square one. Scratching our head, thinking hard and have to make an important decision. My sister can no longer take care of my girls, she has accepted a job offer in KLIA2.

Definitely not going to hire another helper. I do not want face another headache, frustration and have stranger into our house. It would also cost us thousands of Ringgit again which we don't have. Now we're considering sending the girls to a childcare centre. Choosing a childcare centre is NOT easy. Reliable and registered are normally full.

I had done my research on the Internet, browsing the JKM website looking for registered taska / nursery. I called few places and they are no longer accepting new entry.

I had called this centre named Taska Umi Setia Kasih in Danau Kota. I prefer this taska since it is close to kiddo's transit house and school. It is also close to my in law's house. And it is just opposite the police station. Aha. There is a place for Arissa, but I have to wait fo…
