Nur Leia Arissa

Finally I have the time to sit in front of the laptop.
Yes, finally my little princess was born on 22nd May 2012 at 11.04am. We named her Nur Leia Arissa. She is very healthy, 3.4KG. I never thought that she would weight that much, because doc said it could be 3KG only. Oh tipah tertipu!
Kiddo was only 2.75KG when he was delivered. I didn't expect her little sister would be more than 3KG. I went for antenatal check up as usual on that day, and the doc asked if he can check whether I am dilated or not. He said 2cm. Uh oh! Sweating, nervous, panicked, freaked out.. you name it. Mixed feelings. Haha.. Yeah.. I know I had given birth before, but hey that was eight years ago! Mesti lah takut.
But I don't have the sign yet. No water broke, no contractions. But, the night before my tummy really hurt. And I thought it was labour pain. Maybe it was labour pain, my whole tummy hurts and I remember doc said it was one of the sign. After a while it gone. So I continue sleep. Hehe.
I was admitted soon after the CTG scan. Surprised when doc told me I had frequent contraction like every 2-3 minutes. But.. but.. no pain. Lucky me the nurse said. Tak semestinya sakit, dia cakap. Ooooo..
So, there I was in labour room waiting for the right time. Minute after minute, hour after hour. Until late evening, there was no sign. It is still 2cm. Hate it when they have to check how many cm opened. :( Doc said he has to induced me tomorrow morning and expect I will deliver the baby soon after that. Uwaaa.. takut!

OK, cut it short. I was induced the next morning. The nurse had to cucuk tangan untuk masukkan air tu dua kali. Bengkak! Grr. Then around 9.40am, doc came and checked it was 3-4cm. So he broke my water. Fuh!
The funny part was, I was in pain.. yes contraction. Tapi boleh tahan lagi. I told Mr. Fruitheart, 'Your fault'.. 'Tak mau beranak dah.' He smiled. Huh! At one time, I cannot tahan already and asked for pain killer. Nah ahh ahh.. that doesn't help at all. After that, I can't hold it anymore and I think the baby is ready to come out. I had to wait for the doc to arrived, oh the pain is unbearable. Mr. Fruitheart hold the mask on my face, oh damn I don't remember what they called it. But it does ease the pain a bit. Breath in breath out. I am almost at the finish line, after five pushes the baby popped out.

It is true what they said. Once you hold and see your baby, all the pain gone. Gone with the wind. The nurse put the baby on top of me, first skin-to-skin. Oh she is so beautiful. Thank you Allah, I made it!
P/S: Thank you my beloved hubby for waiting beside me and went through the childbirth process from start to the end. I know it takes a lot of courage to be there with your wife, support her and really have patience with her. Thank you so much sayang.

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…
