First Pregnancy Checkup

I had my first prenatal care (also known as antenatal care) last Friday. Boy I was so nervous! So many things going on my mind. How was the baby? How's my tummy? When is the EDD? Is there any unusual things inside my womb? I can't even concentrate on my work.

Yes, first thing for everything is always like that isn't it?

We went to see my usual gynae, Dr. Jaafar. He smiled and asked me.. "Any problem madam?" No problem doctor, only there is a construction going on inside my tummy. I wish I can say that to him.

So he took my blood pressure, asked me normal questions about my morning sickness and my weight is 51.5KG. Normal. So the scan begins. My baby is big already. I can see baby's hand, feet, back bone, nose, eyes and face. Last time when it was baby girl's turn, we did the scanning when she was about 1 month old. I can see the baby's shaking hands and feet. Looks like baby is saying.. "Hi mom. Hi dad. It's me!".

I did asked the condition of my womb. Alhamdulillah, everything looks good. Relief!

EDD as per the scan picture is 18th Nov 2013, based on my last period doc said it's 1st Dec 2013. End of the year for my 'anak bongsu.' HEHE. Three is enough. Looking at the society, price of goods, education, insurance, safety and everything.. they are not like in the 80's or 90's. And you know what, I couldn't believe myself that I'm gonna have 3 children of my own.

P/S: I told Mr. Fruitheart in advance, please do not throw my contraceptive pill after I deliever our baby.

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…
