Tag again… Preggy Tag

This tag requires me to recall all the sequence of event that had happened during my pregnancy. Thanx a bunch to Mommy Lyna. Sigh~~ =P

Ok, it was the best moment ever. Well, all of the moments during my marriage life are the best moments ever. Peace~~ Nhow, let me take u to my pregnancy journey. Eceh…

1. WAS YOUR FIRST PREGNANCY PLANNED?
Not sure. I did not get pregnant straight away after our Big Day. So, a month later, Papa bought 1 software, ‘Ovulation Calendar’ to track my cycle. He really tracked my cycle, OK!! Me, couldn’t care less. As long as my period comes every month, I shouldn’t be bother. Nway, with the software, we can approximately estimate the ovulation period n all the this n that, so, we started to work on that basis. N alhamdulillah, I got pregnant about a month later. Hmm, I guess it was planned, huh?

2. WHAT WAS YOUR SECOND CHOICE NAME FOR YOUR OPPOSITE GENDER NAME?
We chose a name that suits for both genders. Iman is such a cute name n Iman can be a boy or a girl. We started to call our baby Iman since my 1st trimester. So, there was no 2nd choice.

3. WHAT WERE YOUR REACTIONS?
Me: Mixed feelings.
1. Very delighted, of course, this is what we hav been waiting for.
2. Worried because we were on a long-distance relationship, separated by the South China Sea. N I hav no idea how will it be if we were to continue living like that.
3. Guilty because I got preggy b4 my sis. Yeah, I know I shouldn’t feel that way but I just can’t stop it.
4. Confused because I’m not sure whether I was ready or not. Thanx to Papa who had really support me during that time n really changed my perceptions.

Papa: The most happiest man on earth. He grinned all the way. Very supportive and accommodating is the word. He did every single thing on earth to go through the pregnancy. He registered in babycentre. He downloaded n printed out all the articles about pregnancy. He didn’t allow me to carry anything. He warned me to take care of myself when he’s not around. He bought an expensive book about pregnancy n raising a baby as my preggy gift!! N the list went on n on. (Wah, thinking about this really makes me feel flattered n almost shed my tears.~~)

4. HOW OLD WERE YOU?
24 years old. (I was born end of the year, so I was still 24 yrs old when I discovered my pregnancy. Hehehe… )

5. HOW DID YOU FIND OUT YOU WERE PREGNANT?
Since our wedding, both of us traveled very often. We had never failed to meet once a week even though we lived very far away. After more than a month of traveling, I was extremely tired. N I was thinking of taking UPL. Papa told me that he noticed that my period was 1 day delayed. (He actually tracked, remember?!!). From that day on wards, I started to buy several test kits n a bottle of folic acid. I tested everyday because the line was very blurred. N updated Papa on the results. But somehow I knew that I was preggy. I went for scanning for the 1st time but the doctor was not really supportive. She said “ rahim awak bengkak tp tu xbermakne awak mengandung”. Hmm, thanx a lot doctor!! Frustratedly, I waited for Papa. Later went to scan at other clinic. He was so happy to see the heartbeat; n even instructed the doctor what to do!! Hahahaha..

6. WHO DID YOU TELL FIRST?
Papa-lah, of course~~

7. DID YOU WANT TO FIND OUT THE SEX?
Yes, but I don’t mind at all. It's just for shopping purposes

8. DUE DATE?
18th April 2008

9. DID YOU HAVE MORNING SICKNESS?
Yesss n I really enjoyed it. Hehehe…

10. WHAT DID YOU CRAVE?
My 1st trimester, I ate merely everything except for the food from the café. I was really into laksa n soto manikar.
My 2nd trimester, I craved for home-cooked food. I couldn’t take any of outside food except the fastfood. I would surely throw up once I got back from dining out. Yerp, I cooked everyday, except for the days that I really-really just can’t afford 2 cook. Oh, yeah, I craved for pisang goreng. We went back n forth of Kertih n sometimes to Kemaman for the hunt. There was 1 evening, I craved for pisang goreng but it was very difficult to find. We hunted till dusk n Papa felt guilty because didn’t manage to get any. So, we end up buying some bananas n some flour n made homemade pisang goreng. Wahahaha… (Papa actually told the owner of the grocery that I craved for pisang goreng. N she was very concerned, she taught him to make a crispy pisang goreng. nyum3). The same thing happened at my parents’. Papa n Abah went for pisang goreng hunt until late evening. Hav no idea why it was soooo difficult to get any!! Hohoho, I was such a pest back then. Hehehe…
My 3rd trimester was awesome. I wanted to eat all!!

11. WHO/WHAT IRRITATED YOU THE MOST?
I hated the smell of the office café. I hated the scent of the floor detergent that the cleaner used to mop my office’s floor. I hated the smell of my colleague’s hair gel. It was soooooo yuck!!! I guess he splashed 1 tube of hair gel per day!!! (Gosh, I really feel like throwing up now!!)

12. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CHILD’S SEX?
Girl.

13. DID YOU WISH YOU HAD THE OPPOSITE SEX?
Papa wanted a boy. I don’t mind at all.

14. HOW MANY POUNDS DID YOU GAIN THROUGHOUT THE PREGNANCY?
Around 12 kilos.

15. DID YOU HAVE A BABY SHOWER?
Nope. It is not necessary at all. To me, it’s just an event that was introduced by the Americans to waste our money. Better keep the money for raising Iman n her siblings.

17. DID YOU HAVE ANY COMPLICATIONS DURING YOUR PREGNANCY?
1. Anemia, iron-defiency. I had to take loads of huge iron pills. N that hardened my p**ps n made me constipate. Subsequently, I had to eat loads of prune.
2. I cramped few times. So, I need to swallow gigantic calcium pills. Papa was very supportive. He ensured I took all the pills!! Sigh~

18. WHERE DID YOU GIVE BIRTH?
Hospital Pusrawi, Jalan Tun Razak, KL

19. HOW MANY HOURS WERE YOU IN LABOR?
About 5 hours. Perhaps it should last a bit longer but Iman’s heart beat very fast which lead to fetal distress. So, my gynae suggest for C-Sect or else, she may not survive. That was a real nightmare.

20. WHO DROVE YOU TO THE HOSPITAL?
Papa. I was admitted on my check up day n stayed until the EDD. He was there ever since. Isn’t it sweet?? ;)

21. WHO WATCHED YOU GIVE BIRTH?
My gynae, my anesthetic specialist n several nurses. Papa was not allowed to join. :(

22. WAS IT NATURAL OR C-SECTION?
C-Section

23. DID YOU TAKE MEDICINE TO EASE THE PAIN?
I was on epi when I was in the OT.

24. HOW MUCH DID YOUR CHILD WEIGH?
3.14 kg.

25. WHEN WAS YOUR CHILD ACTUALLY BORN ?
On her EDD, 18th April 2008. Her eyes opened wide once she came out to the world. N scream her lung out. I really wish Papa was there to join my bliss.

26. WHAT DID YOU NAME HIM/HER?
Nur Iman Humayra. Nur – light, Iman – faith, Humayra - reddish cheek.

27. HOW OLD IS YOUR FIRST BORN TODAY?
Adorably turning 11 months.

28. WOULD YOU DO IT AGAIN?
DEFINITELY!!!

Man, this really made me recall my entire miracle journey. Was it terrifying? Never!!
