Fasting During Pregnancy

Happy Monday people!

I am on my 20 weeks now. So fast huh? And thank God I have the strength to perform my fasting this year. I remember during my first pregnancy, I managed to perform my fasting for 2 weeks only. I hope this time, me and my baby are strong enough to last till the end of Ramadhan.

So is it safe to fast during pregnancy? Well, there is no clear answer to that. It depends on the individual. And Islam allowed pregnant mothers not to fast if she is worried and concern about her health and baby. But, they still have to replace the fast later after pregnancy is over. Like I did. Fuh.. really challenging I tell you. When other people around you enjoying their food and you have to control yourself from eating. HEHE.

What to eat during break fasting and sahur? Healthy food of course. Dates and fruits. It is better if you have fruit juices and milk. I drink my milk for sahur. Soup is good for you too and you need to ensure that you get enough protein for your baby. Please avoid sugary food, which later will increase your sugar level quickly and drop quickly too. It can make you dizzy and worse.. faint.

There are times I do worry about my baby when I don't feel any kick. I keep on rubbing my tummy and asked "Are you OK there baby?" Sometimes there will be instance kick. There are times after a while only I get a lot of kicking. "OK baby, mama know you are there. Just checking." I said.

I have been told by my doctor if I feel something wrong about me and baby, I need to see the doctor immediately. Example, if there is a change in baby's movement or I have a fever, headache and/or any other pains.

P/S: 6th day of Ramadhan.. I satisfied my cravings for western food and sweet tooth yesterday by eating spaghetti and choc cake. I will get what I want on weekend, weee!

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…
