Hmm..what’s with the long hiatus? Not that I have nothing to share but ain’t have the time. My mom and dad was away for 2 weeks, so I didn’t have the privillege of sending one of the babies (or at times, both of them) upstairs and have leisure time infront of the laptop. No doubt I now have a maid, but in most cases…one will be with me and the other with the maid. And from time to time we will switch babies. Or when both in ‘lepak-ing’ mood…i’ll have both of them and golek2 we golek2 together.
Upon the return of my parents, I thought I could do some update but on the very same day they returned, my aunt who been suffering from breast cancer pass away (Al-Fatihah).
Here’s some update:
hArith’s & athirAh’s First Night Outing
On the 5th April, my skoolmate buddy got married. It was for the solemnization and my maid pulak took emergency leave. I find it not fair for my old maid ( old as in the maid that has been with us for the past 9 years before mine came to work) if I were to leave both babies behind. Unless it was during the day, shouldn’t be much problem. But since it is in the evening (after maghrib that is), wouldn’t be easy to put both to sleep all by herself. So we were left with no other choice. Oh chop, we actually had another choice, my dear friend Fadd and her husband offered to babysit, put them to sleep and stay on until we return, but now hArith has very bad flue (will talk more about it later) and will wake up around 10pm or 11pm crying out loud that the entire house could hear due to breathing problem. I think he gets frustrated having block nose that he would wake up feeling suffocated thus the loud cry. Even I myself gets panic whenever hArith cries out loud, so wouldn’t want to let Fadd and her husband in such situation. Anyhow I felt flattered that they offered to come over and babysit my babies. Sangat lar terharu!
So how were the babies at the akad nikah? They behaved well. And just about time we wanted to eat, both felt asleep, so we put them on the carpet and they had no problem sleeping. They slept till we finished eating and managed to take some photos with the newly wed and off we went.
Down With Flue
Both my babies are now down with flue. But hArith’s is worst than athirAh. Since both my babies sleeps on their tummy, hArith has problem with block nose in the middle of the night. I tried putting him on his back with his head high up using the pillow. But he’s not comfortable with that sleeping position. Leaving us with no choice, pApa and mOmmy took turn to carry him. So first night pApa slept in a sitting position while carrying him to ensure hArith’s head is high.
Of cause we brought them to see the doctor but unfortunately his flue condition during the day and night is not the same. At night it is very severe compared to day. So doctor can’t really know what we meant when we said hArith have problem sleeping at night cause from what he sees during the day, it is just a normal flue. So we can only try to get the doctor to picture the night situation. We were prescribe with few ubat but hArith’s condition worsen. So yesterday we brought him to see the doctor again. Despite having bad flue, he was still active, trying to grab everything and did his baby talk with the doctor. Doctor was hAppy to see hArith’s behaviour cause it’s the same doctor that helped him to survive from a 760gram baby.
The Major Difference Between The Two Of Them
hArith is the manja type, he loves to be cuddle and seek attention all the time. Whereas athirAh seems to be more independent. We can leave her alone and she always give way to her brother. athirAh has no problem sleeping in her on cot but hArith wants to sleep with mOmmy and pApa. He needs people to pat his back and our cheeck rub against each other when putting him to sleep. Even his hand will start searching for us (eyes remain close) whenever he realise I’m no longer beside him. and oh hArith is a jelous freak! Can never say hello to athirAh before greeting him. If we do so…he will look deep into your eyes and give a very sharp look.
In fact the other day, we brought both for check-up. So happen doctor check athirAh first. He started staring at doctor’s face with the look that says “Why are you holding her not ME?!?!!?!” Even the doctor notice hArith’s face and started asking us, why isn’t hArith friendly?
On the next visit (following week), we brought hArith alone (cause his flue worsen). He was so hAppy to get all the attention, doing all his baby talk. The doctor definately notice the different of hArith’s behaviour between the two visits.
Although hArith is suppose to be the big brother (since his the first to come out) it is always athirAh who gives way to hArith. athirAh sangat lar beralah. Now I can’t imagine, with the coming newborn, how will hArith handle it.
By the way, 5 days ago…my babies turn 10 month. hAppy 10 months young babies dear! (however based on their corrected age, -the date they are supposed to be born, they are turning 7 months…so as what the doctors said…I should expect their progress to be based on their corrected age not similar to those 10months babies)
On My Pregnancy
I just realised, I never talk about my pregnancy this time. Only after people kept asking me I realised so. When is my due date?? Well, based on my first day of last menstrual period I should be due on 21st July. BUT based on the size of fetus during scan, I should be due on 5th August. So it’s either end July or early August.
So now, based on menstrual period i’m almost 26 weeks, but based on scan i’m almost 24 weeks. Gosh 26weeks is a ‘scary’ week or me. Cause that’s when I gave birth to my 3 babies.
But when people see me they don’t expect me to be 6 months pregnant. My tummy is not that big and I only put on weight 5kg+. Here’s the latest photo of me and my tummy.
