Me and My Third Trimester

Third trimester? That means baby going to come out soon. OK now that makes me scared. "Ala anak dah nak masuk 3, nak takut apa. Orang dah berpengalaman. Sekali teran je dah keluar. Sakit sikit je." Biasa dengar? Hello? Excuse me. Every pregnancy is different. And I am the type of no matter how many times I've gone through it, I AM STILL AFRAID!

I am on my 28 weeks. Today, the babybump application told me this:
Baby Size - 14.8 in chinese cabbage
Baby Weight - 2.25 lb

Feeling Like a Punching Bag?
The little one growing in your belly is getting stronger, and his strength, combined with the increasing size of your uterus, may cause you some pain or discomfort. Your uterus is pressing against your organs, and when your baby occasionally moves, he may bump or poke them, causing you to feel sharp, stabbing pains or pressure under your ribs. This pain, although unpleasant, is not uncommon. The best treatment is to lie down or switch positions until baby is down for the count, and you’ll both be able to rest comfortably again.

How am I suppose to lie down when I'm the office baby? You know, I feel so heavy and huge like a polar bear. I wish I just can roll myself going everywhere. Whenever I walked, I feel pain in my pelvis area. When you moved, whoaa.. you REALLY MOVED. Daddy knows very well because if he is nearby, I would grab his wrist and press it hard trying to reduce the pain. It's like.. "Can you feel how I feel?"

P/S: When you sit you feel uneasy, when you lie down you have to slowly get up. Hold on Fara.. 82 more days to go. You can do it!

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…
