Me and The First Trimester

Fatigued. Tired. Vomit. Nausea. Heart burn. Back pain. Morning and evening sickness. Early sleep. Those were my very best friends now. No matter what I did, telling them to go away in my most soft voice, they won't leave me! :( First trimester 'nasties' I called them.

First Trimester: Starts with the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP) and ends with the last day of the 13th week thereafter. (

OK. According to the due date calculator, I am 10 weeks pregnant and my first trimester should end in 2 weeks. 14 days more?? ARGH!

I know I am an experienced mother. I had 2 pregnancies experienced aren't I? Well, every pregnancy is totally different. This time around, I am not eating much. I can't each much at one time.

My first pregnancy, I like to eat papaya, koay teow kerang and sirap limau for drinks. Second pregnancy I like to eat a lot of watermelon until my father in law so worried and asked Mr. Fruitheart if it is OK for a pregnant lady to eat it. And yes I do love ice lemon tea from mamak stall too. I don't like the one from Lipton or Nestea. During end of my second trimester, I like the taste of Baskin Robbins jamoca almond fudge. Gosh! I can finish a small pint all by myself. No wonder baby girl doesn't like it when we put blanket on her. She's hot type of girl. LOL!

Talking about my fourth pregnancy, I had miscarriage once before my daughter. So based on doc's calculation, it's my fourth and not three. I hope everything goes well and smooth till the day I deliver my baby. I just need to be very careful due to the fact that I am no longer getting younger. 32 years old this year and no I can't believe it myself that I am going to have 3 children!

P/S: I should be doing my yoga, but my body won't allow it. Oh well, I wish I can start doing it after this 'nasties' first trimester end.

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…
