Anyway I am carefully monitoring my weight. As I did not gain the normal 3-5kg during the first 20 weeks, I have to make sure that I won't lose any kg's during Ramadhan. My mum's doctor suggested that I fast on alternate days if the situation persist as :-
- To maintain + improve my weight gain (eventhough Beanie can get enough nutrients from me, I may not have enough for myself) and supplements does not equal to real food calories
- No point if I get to "puasa penuh" but may cause future complications to myself (macamlah tak boleh qada' later) If need arises I can do what I did last year to prepare for the wedding puasa on Mondays and Thursday twice a month. 15 days or so is not that much (the key is not to ganti last minute :p) As advised by my mummy :p
We'll see how thing goes, for all I know I might be able to fast 30days non-stop. I know some people may say that it's mengada2 and memanjakan diri to consider not fasting but I believe it's better to look at my body needs. No point in playing hero especially if the harm outweigh the benefit.
Every individual is different so as every pregnancy. I've been lucky so far *alhamdullilah* I have very minimal morning sickness, I'm still able to shop from every end of One Utama non-stop for 2 hours, I can still wear 3/4 of my normal clothes. I'm able to go to work, go to class (which ends at 10pm, mind you twice a week) and am still able to help around the house. Ni bukan riak ok but I'm just showing I've been bless with a great pregnancy so far, so if this is the price that I got to pay in return, I accept in graciously.
My baju raya should be ready next week. I can't wait. I'm making a normal baju kurung + an empire waist jubah (of a sort). For first day of raya I've decided to get one that is ready made (malas nak buat baju banyak2) I may be preggers but that does not mean I have to wear boring clothing, right?? :p
We've started getting a few bits and pieces for Beanie. I try not to go overboard (and been good so far) and have been religiously sticking to my Cosmopolitan Pregnancy Baby List :) Lepas raya nie can start do some real damage.
My mummy is the one yang overly excited. She already gotten Beanie some cute t-shirt from Mothercare and an adorable Pj. Pastu sibuk nak pergi beli those 3 in 1 cots for our house in Klang. We were like "relax ah mama, lambat lagi belilah lepas raya... "Thank god she actually listen :p
