Benda yang ibu mengandung tak sedar…

Hello everyone,

I just wanna share with you guys my only boy’s photo. He is my golden boy. That is what I call him.F8898CA3-D823-4486-95F0-1A78DCBD8CF3

Since he was born, I have decided that my family is enough. So, mommy doesn’t have to become pregnant again.

Pregnant with him was super smooth. The easiest!! Pheww.

 

Not much morning sickness like the previous 2.  I wasn’t that fussy with food. Atleast I could eat or smell meat and chicken being cooked. As for the previous 2, I could only eat vegetables as the smell of meat being cooked made me threw up.

I think it is very IMPORTANT for pregnant mom to take good care of her health first and foremost. As always, we are the caretaker for the whole family.

 

Being pregnant never slow us down from being mommy.

Thus, pregnant mom can get super exhausted fast. Being exhausted has nothing to do with being ‘manja’.

It is a sign that your body needs rest. Your child is growing and your body needs energy to support his growth.

You should listen to your body. It demands calories and healthy food. It needs more nutritions to support baby’s growth.

I personally suggest that pregnant mom supplements wisely.

 

With us being super busy and superwomen, we  need the optimum nutritions to keep us energetic. Exhausted mom could mean you just don’t get enough nutritions. Your hb could be low because lack of iron, vitamin C, folic acid in your daily food.

 

Siapalah nak makan daging banyak2. Nak makan kekacang banyak2? I know I dun. Nak makan setiap hari pulak tu. Uwekkk😩.

 

Sebab tulah badan kita jadi kurang iron. Jadi anemic. Jadi cepat letih.

 

Jadi letih ni bukan bermaksud kita manja tau. You don’t have to blame yourself and push yourself too hard. What you need is to TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF FIRST. Take care of your baby. Supplement yourself with good quality prenatal supplements.

 

When I was pregnant with my first child, I thought my daily nutritions were enough. I didn’t take extra supplements except from the clinic for my hb. I became tired and more depressed. With work, work and work.

 

I was working as a doctor in Selayang Hospital.

 

With night shift and all, I kept vomiting during Icu round. Depressing!!!

Super tiring.

But I hate pills.

My specialist/boss, suggested for me to take omega-3-fatty acid which is good for baby’s brain development and eyesight.

Then, I started taking neurogain which I bought in pharmacy. It was expensive and lasted for a month. Mahal nak mampuih!!

 

Tapi hanyir gilaa. I muntah lepas ambik. I terpaksa tutup hidung bila nak telan. Tapi demi baby, I paksa juga.

First pregnancy was a trauma. Because I refused to try Shaklee prenatal set. Eventhough so many of my friends who are doctors, suggested Shaklee prenatal set. They took during their pregnancy. I was stubborn. I thought it was a waste of my money. Kedekutnya!!

 

Untuk diri pun kedekut. Untuk anak pulak tu. Apadaa!! Shame on me!!

 

Anyway, second pregnancy was worse!!!

I cannot tahan with night cramps yg jadi lebih byk sb I tak ckup kalsium. Padahal minum susu hari2. Tak cukup kalsium lagike??

Masa tu I tried Ostematrix and ESP. Beli dari Dr Maryam. Told u doktor ramai ambil Shaklee. Kawan I ni dah makan Shaklee masa tu more than 3 years. I nak try sb tak tahan sgt dah dgn kepenatan masa tu. So I trust when she said she took prenatal set and was happy with the result.

So I started taking ESP for energy and ostematrix for calcium.

Alhamdulillah, after second night, no more legs cramp. I was so happy with the result.

 

I had no more that fatigue and exhaustion. I was cheerful again. I could perform at work. Takdelah nampak macam manja ke letih ke. Atau mengada-ngada. Hanya org yg faham saja akan faham penatnya mengandung ni tau. Bukan mengada tau. Tapi memang penat. So bila korang penat, janganlah biarkan saja. I suggest sangat uoll ambil ESP dan ostematrix semasa pregnant.

Selepas I ambil set prenatal masa mengandung anak kedua tu, I happy gilee!! I tak rasa macam pregnant tau. I felt more energetic than before pregnant. That is the power of good supplements.

So mommies out there, I wish to educate women about good nutritions and health. It is so important but many people still are not aware of the benefits of supplements when you don’t get good food everyday.

Noah is my last child. My golden boy. He is so big that he looks like a 3 year old but he is just 1 year and 4 months. He could walk at 12 months and he didn’t just walk. He ran!!! Dia takde tatih2. Dia terus lari at 12 months. And the next month, he started climbing and swinging. Hahahahaa. He is super strong. You don’t want to wrestle with him or get kicked by him. This guy is like MMA wannabe.

Strong legs and strong punch. Not sure about his future but looks like he is not the soft type despite his super fair skin.

 

Anak-anak I alhamdulillah kulit cerah. I think sebab I minum ESP banyak sangat masa mengandung.

Kakak saja kuning langsat sikit. Masa tu belum ambil Shaklee lagi. But its ok. I love her all the same despite the skin tone😉. They are all the same too me. Beautiful and precious.

Noah my 3rd child with Chenta Kamelia my second child.

 

We just bought cars for them to play.

Kat Chow kit banyak gila kedai kereta dan basikal. Murah gilaa!!! Korang tgk kedai lain mahal nak mampuih kereta2 ni. Tapi kat Chow kit kurang RM 200-300 jugak tau. Nasib baiklah tak beli kat tempat lain.

 

If you guys wish to try Prenatal set Shaklee, please contact me and I will help you until no more exhaustion in pregnancy. I’ve been there and it helped me in all pregnancy afterwards.

Confinement don’t!!

Today is my 40th day of confinement. I really can’t wait to be free, to do whatever I want again without thinking whether this will burden my system.

I am so used to being active that confinement really is super boring. Though I am not that strict like most ladies but I do limit myself like cannot window shopping because that would means walking too much. I need to go to Ikea too and Ikea means long walk.

During pregnancy, the gaps between your joints expanded a little bit to support your expanding figure. During confinement, the joints are still weak. That is why our ancestors told us to rest, not walk so much, to avoid stairs etc. It is to let the joints rest and not too overburden them during this recovery period. Or you will have joints pain especially at the ankles and knees. You might need to stop wearing heels afterwards temporary.

Food wise I avoid those gassy food and oily . Being bloated in confinement is just the worst feelings ever. You will have headache, might vomit and feel pain at the epigastric area of your abdomen. That is why it is best to avoid ‘lemang’ and ‘ketupat’ during the festive holidays. I didn’t have even a bite.

I like to insert a lot of salad and tomatoes with rice to keep my nutrients complete.

Some people say to avoid certain vegetables as they are believed to be cold food. I personally think that my body is always too warm so cold vegetables will be warmed by my blood circulation as soon as I swallow them. Hehehe.

But well nobody follow my ways anyway. This is for me as I know my body and understands it. And I eat seafood, prawns in confinement. No itchiness at all. Patients used to ask me for a list of food to avoid after surgery. They would specifically asked if they should avoid eggs and prawns as they might cause itchiness.

Then I would ask if they have allergies to those food?

They denied allergies.

If you don’t have allergies, why would you suddenly develop skin itchiness after surgery???

Surgery doesn’t cause non-existing allergies to suddenly pop.

So yeah no need to avoid those food. As a matter of fact, eating eggs is very good for wound healing as it is rich with protein. Protein is super important for healing. Some people go on a strict pantang to the extend the wound didn’t heal well enough.

The most important thing is to eat healthy. To balance your diet. This is to ensure that your body and your baby get all the vitamins and minerals needed to function.

food_pyramid

Which means you need to eat carbohydrates (rice)->for energy

, protein (fish, eggs, chicken, meat)–>to make cells, for wound, immunity to keep you from having infections (fever)

a little bit of vegetables fat–>to adsorb some vitamins and for hormones

vegetables and fruits for vitamins and minerals–>immunity, for beautiful skin, thick hair, healthy nails and health overall.

dairy products are important as well as they provide calcium.

IMG_5216

Pregnant mom has supplied calcium throughout the pregnancy to the fetus and during confinement, she should continue to make sure her calcium intake is enough which is 1000mg per day. Imagine after 10 months of supplying calcium to her fetus and she has not been taking enough calcium, her bone will start to deteriorate. PLus during confinement, she is not taking enough calcium and breastfeeding for 2 years.

osteo_po.jpg

She will start having all kinds of problems later on.

Drinking milk alone is not enough to supply 1000 mg per day.

That is why if people really think about the importance of all these nutrients for their body and their babies, they will plan their meals more and more than just sticking to 1 type of food everyday.

Try to change the menu everyday. If you are in confinement, try to eat healthy other than eating anchovies (ikan bilis) with rice or ikan kering only because those meals are not balanced diet and lack of nutrients. A mother’s breastmilk contains the food that she eats. Therefore, it is very important for a mother to choose healthy food, enriched with nutrients to supply for her baby’s growth.

As much as we respect the eldest ways, try to balance with the knowledge of science since knowledge has been upgraded since years ago.

But still there are certain truth in the old ways such as rest, keep your body warm, gassy food to avoid, not to lift heavy and etc.

And for me I love bertungku, massages and it is compulsory for me to use corsets or girdle during this whole period. Like I said, I balanced the old ways with the science.

This is my 3rd pantang and the 2nd pantang with supplements from Shaklee.

IMG_5060

I use the supplements for pregnancy throughout my whole pregnancy. I could feel the different before taking them and after.

IMG_5023

I did feel energized and painless during the whole 10 months. No backpain, no fatigue and I was in a great mood since I could continue with my daily routine as usual.

IMG_5025

I didn’t feel pregnant at all. I even went to Japan at 5 months pregnant.

18034359_10208130969264421_9066590925659046630_n.jpg

I was super active attending long hours seminars and carrying out daily business plus chasing my active 1 year old plus kid.

I believe the complete nutrients I supplied to my body everyday during the whole pregnancy helped my labour. I was in a great condition when labour kicked in. It was fast and easy. Right after delivery, I was still energized.

19260628_10213120473621823_1981453486104161260_n.jpg

I could continue breastfeeding the whole night and only slept for 2 hours. It didn’t feel like I just gave birth at all.

The next day, my parents came to visit and they watched my pink complexion and commented how I didn’t look like somebody who just gave birth.

IMG_8245.JPG

That was the same sentence everybody who visited me during confinement said.

I was at home during confinement but active and painless. My wound recovered fast and it was painless as well. Milk was a lot. Other than the fact that I cannot start jogging right away, I don’t really feel like I am in confinement.

IMG_9516

So personally, I believe that taking enough nutrients is super important for health.

It is like supplying good quality of petrol to your car. Imagine running out of petrol while driving?Disaster.

So lets stay healthy everyone.
