CONFINEMENT a.k.a BERPANTANG

Hello :)

Day 3 post D&C - and i'm already walking here and there. Climbing up and down the stairs like no one cares. Ok. Hafiz cares. Dan berbuih-buih sudah mulutnya. But how meh? (do not do this at home).

Definition of 'pantang' - Pantang berundur sebelum berjuang. eh.Silap.

BERPANTANG a.k.a CONFINEMENT - refers to a condition where the mommies need to follow the rules of do's and dont's after the baby's delivery (kelahiran) OR after the miscarriage (keguguran). Nenek moyang dulu punya cerita. No wonder la, semua ayat pun ada bermula dengan "orang zaman-zaman dulu cakap...la la". That is why when we ask doctors or other medical staff the term pantang is basically not exist. Apaa pon boleh..apaa pon boleh..ya kaaannn..??

Tapi, kalau tengok bebetul..ada jugak logicnya. Ada la jugak yang macam cool je, macam nk follow je, macam santekkkkkkk jee huk! Tapi kalau da sampai tahap tak boleh lalu bawah ampaian, kalau nak makan ayam kena makan ayam hitam la ginding la tegendong gendong la..dah macam pantang larang pakai susuk pon ade nih! Aku ni beranak ke pakai susuk? Cantiknye tidakk (tibe-tibe confuse). 

Oh. Some infos stated that if you had miscarriage when your pregnancy was below 3 months then your confinement period would be lesser and lighter. But if the pregnancy had been 3 months and above so you should follow the rules of the baby's delivery (wah!) The question is : IS IT TRUE?

Ok. Pencerahan oh pencerahan. 

Senang cerita. Follow your heart (But it's not easy, i know. It will end up with - follow your momma or grandmomma)

Duration : people said 44 days. Make it even worse 100 days. 
- 100 days? HUSBAND do not come any nearer. Continue the do's and dont's + do not have any sexual intercourse with your partner. Fullstop. Ceng ceng.
Ok, medically the uterus (rahim) will shrink due to birth, the cervix and vagina were traumatized due to vaginal birth and same thing happens to caesaerian- section wound. They need their own sweet time to recover and regain their original state. It takes about 4-6 weeks to recover (6 weeks x 7 = 42 days kan?). 100 days - Give it more time. 44 days? OK ler teww...

Foods and supplement : yum yum
- Why there are soo many foods that we need to avoid and the only few that we can take are so NOT DELICIOUS? i conclude : 1) To ensure the breastmilk that the baby consume is SAFE!  2) To make sure the good wound healing post-delivery. Itu je.  
- Snakehead fish (ikan haruan) is known to be traditionally healing the wound caused by the vaginal/caesarian birth. Yes. It's clinically proven too! The amino acid and fatty acid content is important in synthesis of collagen fibres during the wound healing. Gamat a.k.a sea cucumber. Their regenerative abilities are proven for wound healing process. Yes, we doctors don't give medication to heal wound after the delivery because they will absolutely heal naturally and the most important is to keep least medication for safe breastfeeding process. Say no to JAUNDICE baby!
But mommies, it will bring no harm to take supplement or trusted home remedies. Discuss with your doctors :)
- Egg, peanuts, wheat , yogurt, ice-cream, cheese : known to have allergen that can cause the breastfeeding baby to have allergic reaction  (especially if the family already have the history of allergy)
- Garlic? yawn. Baby will definitely not liking it when the milk tastes like garlic. Yaa kaaann..?
- Fruits: Avoid citrus fruits such as oranges, apples, pineapples - it may irritate the cute stomach and causing diaper rash
- Caffeinated drink : Wo, you won't let your baby to have insomnia and sleepless night yaww. 
- Fish : Avoid swordfish. tilefish. It contains high mercury level that can cause gases for the baby's stomach. Make it short, makan je la ikan haruan kome tu ye.

Bengkung?
- keep the uterus in place. Avoiding 'jatuh peranakan' ya kannn...?Anyway it's good to bring back your pre-pregnancy shape.  Awww...

Walking/Sitting/sleeping position: Up to you la joyah. tak payahla kaki sampai atas muke husband ke, kepale bawah katil. Rare sangat tu. Sopan santun je la. Slow and steady. Why rush? Maternity leave 2 months minimum kan? Yang penting, make yourself comfortable. And i'm sure you will not be as comfortable as before during you first week after the delivery due to some few final uterus contractions you're having (uterus is working hard to regain it's old shape back)

Postnatal massage: No problem. Proceed if you want. It just giving you some extra energy.


Correct me if i'm wrong. I have less experience in this. Seriously.

Finally. Congratulations to all beautiful mommies out there! You've done aaa veryyy great job out there wherever you are. Iznee's so proud of you!


Woot woot!

The experience of MISSED ABORTION

It happened in a short flash of time. I knew i was pregnant 3 months ago. Its an incidental finding when i was about to book for my antenatal checkup on 31st October 2013. NO FETAL HEART. Repeated scan at specialist hospital - still no no no heart beat :'( It's a MISSED ABORTION.
Anyway, alhamdulillah. Allah smoothen the way. No pervaginal bleeding, no contraction pain.

So..now..i did my Dilatation & Curettage 2 days ago (19th November 2013) @ Ampang Puteri Specialist Hospital. Oh, thanks a lot baby Hafiz for the AIA coverage..love you ni..! (Bukan tak nak pergi govt hospital...tp sbb kerja pun dkt govt..so ape salahnye try private side pulak..tak gitu sayang..?hahahahahaha jeng jeng)

Expected service and hospitality. I just love how Dato' Dr Ashar and the team handling the case. With just 2 tablets of Cytotec (it's a prostaglandin tablets that dilates the cervix for the baby to come out), the water broke and..and..and. nah.

                                    i wrote this while waiting for OT call tp td edit spelling.
                                                         Terus jd 21 Nov kat atas tu! haha

No doubt. The contraction pain is 90% unbearable. I wonder how all the beautiful mommies out there giving birth to a beautiful babies. So proud of them! Tahniah!

Big big hugs and kisses to my babyhero intan payung berlian permata emas dan 99-juta-karat gold - for being with me all the time, yes all the time. You give me strength while i struggled with pain. And i did it! I just love you so much to the moon and back Ahmad Hafizuddin!

Thank you to Papa Mama yang tunggu sama2 masa procedure. My brothers. Wan and Atok yang call hari2 from Johol. Love you guys.  Thank you everybody yang dtg melawat. Lawatan anda sgt Iznee and Hafiz hargai sampai bile2! Thanks for all the prayers.

Oh, thank you Ampang Puteri Spec Hospital. You guys rawk my 2-day hospitalization experience!






Finally..
Thank you my baby, for the short-but-fun 3 months sweet experience you gave me. You taught me a lot and you give me more and more strength to prepare for your next sister/brother. Thank you.
May you Rest in Peace baby. Tunggu Mommy & Daddy dekat Sana ok..?

We love you so much.

FATE

Hello :)

One patient came to me tonight. He had 2 cuts on his two left fingers. 
Working as chicken-rice seller at the pasar malam near my place. And he got that cuts while preparing the chicken for the customer tonight. And he chopped his fingers as well. Luckily, he still have his fingers with him. Alhamdulillah.

Wow, business is going on well huh uncle? Ramai sgt ni customer sampai tak sempat tgk jari ni...But he said NO. "Macam ni la dik...kerja takde mase depan..." I was like..huh? (sentap). 
He used to set-up a chicken rice shop before. But it didn't go according to plan. Lingkup. So he got nothing else to do but yeah continuing life. 
As a chicken rice seller. Moving here and there. Mana-mana pasar malam pon die ade. 

Looking at him. I feel like...if i ever think that my life is suck.. think again. There's million more out there are suffering more and more than what i think i am. Having no job. No money. 
No place to call - home. 

Bersyukurlah dengan apa yang ada. Allah lebih Mengetahui. 
Allahuakbar.

Why PANDORA?

Charms. Oh charms. I used to think that charm is something that only certain people will buy. People that have nothing else to do in life except for charm hunting. Vietnam, Bangkok. Even to USA and Denmark? Who the hell did that except for the rich and famous? More money coming in into their bank account every month without thinking about working 8-10 hours every single day. uh oh. Can i be one them? huhuuu

anyway. Now, things changed. Why? Of course because of Pandora baby! Now i know why they are crazily into charms! (except for i'm not rich and famous. muahahahah).

video
                                          Here is the video on how they focus on the charm's making.


Baby Hafiz keep on wondering why Pandora is a choice while i can spend the money on a real gold. hahhaha. Yeah, its an investment. But the charms are memories! Which one you prefer? Krik krik, Hahahahah.(just say yes to Pandora daddy!)
















ok, i think tats it for now. As a summary, women are different in their own way. So, just support them guys!
Muahahahah!

Till then yaw!

Caffeine VS Pregnancy

Hey Ho!
Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha to all! How's the celebration? Good? No celebration? No lembu or kambing  to sembelih? It's ok...yang penting happy! As for me, i celebrated Aidiladha only with my baby hubby and my 2 brother hero as our parents are not here performing Haj (amin.. semoga mendapat haji yang mabrur). Quite a sad raya, but compensated with - WE WENT BACK TO MY HUSBAND's kampung! hahahah..so beraya sakan jugakla dekat Tampin tu..lotsa lotsa lotsa foods!

Hello Lembu, what a niceeee teeth yu have!

Eh, asal lain je topic dengan content? hahaha...here you go!

Why suddenly i talk about Caffeine VS Pregnancy?why oh why?jeng jeng.

Because, i LOVE COFFEE which contains CAFFEINE and now i'm 9 weeks PREGNANT!
clap clap clap! Alhamdulillah..Semoga menjadi baby yang soleh/solehah ok dan comel macaaaaaaammmmmm mommy ok? woot woot!AMIN!

                                                              Oh, caramel machiato :'(


What is caffeine? Senang cerita, it's a substance contains in coffee, tea, soft drink and even chocolates and its also one of the STIMULANT DRUG or 'psychoactive drug'. Jeng jeng, doesnt mean all of us is a drug addict ye. Jangan risau. huhu. It affects the central nervous system(sistem saraf pusat) in human and it restores the alertness. Yeah, thats explain why you drink coffee during your exam's week. Kan? Stay-up letewww ;)

In pregnancy, no studies shows that pregnant lady MUST AVOID caffeinated drink. But at least cut down the amount - from 3 cups of coffee per day (macam aku je tu) to maybe a cup a day or maybe none at all. Or make it less than 200mg/day or 12 oz cup of coffee. As for me, make it decaffeinated! wee, but its still a coffee at the end :( it's so hard...especially when you are DIE HARD FAN of starbucks! (sorry baby Hafiz, for keep asking you to give me a sip of your yummy coffee). Huhuhu

These are few reasons why preggies should avoid this lovely coffee! (based on few research done over the internet and books)

1) In first trimester (week 4-12 of your pregnancy), it increases risk of miscarriage (keguguran)
2) Double the risk of still birth (Bayi meninggal di dalam rahim ibu setelah kandungan berusia 24 minggu dan seterusnya)
3) Studies shows that newborn will have a faster heart beat and will keep spend time awake more in few weeks of life (penat lah papa mama ye.)
4) In pregnant lady, you might suffer from anemia or kurang sel darah merah. Because, caffeine contains substance called PHENOLS that reduce the iron absorption in your body.
5) Caffeine causes insomnia! and faster heart rate. Dahlah berdebar nak bersalin, berdebar2 sbb banyak caffeine dalam badan pulak. hhuu

Adab

Locum malam ni, antara locum2 terpanas.

Datang sorang patient dan suami. Baru kawin 3 minggu. Suami muke ketat smacam (baru gado ke ape?). Si isteri sakit perut, muntah2, cirit birit. Period baru je lepas. So impossible lah pregnant. So saje la gurau2, "takleh bau badan suami kott..." Si isteri bantai gelak. Si suami muke mcm (aku rs nk tampal ngn plastesin pon ade). Boleh suami die cakap " Doktor boleh cepat skit tak, saya ade tahlil ni, kopiah pon tak tanggal lagi ni" - sambil tjk kopiah atas kpale (ade saya kay-sah kopiah atas kpale ke lutut?), dan terus menyambung statement dgn penuh amarah la konon " Saya dtg klinik pukul 6 td, doktor takde, klinik pulak nak tutup da" sambil setelkan ayat blakang yg aku cam denga tak denga tapi kedengaran mcm kuang ajo gak la.
Haih, boleh tros aku denga patient ckp cmtu!

Saudare, pertama: klinik ni mmg tutup pukul 6, mmg la doktor takde!
Kedua: sy takkan tgk patient saya cincai2, kalo nk cincai, tayah tgk pon tkpe. 
Ketiga: Nape awk tk pegi klinik kerajaan yg bukak 24 jam? Hospital pon tak pnah tutop rasenye.

Jawapan beliau: oh, klinik kerajaan bukak ke? (Macha, aku rs satu tganu pon tahu klinik ade MA active oncall)

DEY, sbb tu la, kalau tatau tanye. This is private clinic. Suke hati IBU AYAHHH die laaaa nk bkk pukol bape.
Yg aku peliknye, IBU AYAH kamu tak aja ke care masok tempat org, mintak servis org, kena beradab. Duit bukan sgalenye la. Bukak la kopiah tu. Malu. Sedih. Memalukan lagi menyedihkan lagi tersedih!

Well said, dunia semakin berakhir.
Sekianlah luahan prasaan.

Antibiotic for LAYMAN.

Doktor: makcik, anak sakit ape?
Makcik: demam selsema da 3 hari, sy nak antibiotik la.

Hurm...eh eh makcik ni..

Doktor: makcik tahu ke antibiotik tu ape?
Makcik: mati kuman 

Hurm, ok....

Doktor: mati kuman ape makcik?
Makcik: tatau, tp ORANG KATE kalau demam, kene makan antibiotik.
Doktor: oh, orang kate. Tapi makcik tahu ke antibiotik tu untuk sakit ape sbenanye?
Makcik: tatau.

Ok, there yu go. There's too much of 'orang kate tu, orang kate ni' in our community. Pity the layman. They hear this and that, and BELIEVE **without asking the right person** and no doubt, ade patient yg marah doctors OK sbb tak prescribe antibiotic for their flu-child!

Ok, iklan: 
- makan ubat kencing manis, rosak buah pinggang ( did they know, its the diabetes that cause their kidney damage??). Sugar high sky, somemore tanak makan ubat ka pacik?dey!
- tak makan pil perancang tapi makan jamu (or makjong or mahjung or watevs), but its actually our contraceptive pills are wrapped tight in their jamu? 

Ok, back to the antibiotic.

Doctors, we learned a lot about it. No need to tell the patient about the classification, generations and stuff. They dont care. Educate them. Tell them when to give, do's and dont's. Thats it. So that the right info will be spread around! 

Save the antibiotics if you want them to save you.
Thank you. Renung- renungkan, dan jgn makan byk sgt antibiotik.
