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!
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!
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
