Memorable Melaka

On our way back to KL from JB last month we had a little detour to Melaka. Hanis Zalikha to be blamed. I watched her (son’s) reality show the other day and they had this roadtrip to Melaka just to find foodsss. She was 39wks pregnant during the shoot. While i was 34wks masa masuk Melaka tu he he

We checked out at 12noon so when we reached Melaka it was just in time for a late lunch. Masa tu dalam 3pm kot. So our first destination was of course the famous Ee Ji Ban Chicken Rice Ball! 

Punyalah susah nak dapat parking memula tu. So my husband dropped me first to find meja for us. Around 15mins baru dapat meja phew. So many ppl i tell youuu. 

We ordered their chicken rice balls (1 set 10pcs, RM3). But nasi for aaqil. Half chicken. Kailan goreng. Fishball soup. Nyonya petai squid goreng garam (mcm sambal gitu). Sedapppnya. Especially the rice balls. Aaqil last2 paw ktorg punya hihi. So we ordered another 10pcs ?

The price was a bit on the high side because half chicken is the minimum order. If not, we cant dine in (as pasted on their wall). So if you go in a group of 4 adults, the portion would be just nice. 

Dengan kekenyangan, we cont our journey to search for the Kuih Keria Gula Melaka! THE keria. Hehe. The stall was only less than 15mins journey from the chicken rice shop. When we reached there, there was around 40ppl queueing, but the keria was not there LOL! I guess theyre all waiting for the next batch of keria to arrive. So we parked our car, grab an umbrella (it was scorching hawtt) and joined the long q. Since the q was not moving so my husband and aaqil went for zohor+asar at the nearby masjid.

….10 minutes later, the ‘staff’ came with packs of keria. There were at least 20packs kot. The first few ppl in the q bought one-five packs each haha. Memang tgk situasi tu akakkk konfirm takde rejeki nak makan keria viral. Even the q was not moving. Yet. 

Then one hamba allah, a young lady, approached me and hand me over a piece of keria that she managed to grab. She said “awk ambiklah saya bagi free. At least tau rasa dia. Takut tak sampai turn awk…” All eyes were on me. Refused to take the keria at first but looking at her face, she was really sincere. So peganglah seketul keria kat tangan kanan, kiri pegang payung. Hehe

Few minutes later, a young man approached me and hand me over 2 packs of keria!!!! Of course I refused! He insisted. Ok how should i react to this. So i asked him “err berapa ringgit ni ya..byk sangat ni” “eh takpelah kak. Isteri saya pun mengandung ni saya beli utk dia jadi saya beli utk akak jugak”………

Speechless. Allah bless these generous and thoughtful ppl. May Allah grant them more rezeki…

So i walked away from the q with most of the eyes were on me. I was stunned with the generosity ?

We enjoyed the keria so much that we almost finished the whole packs (20pcs) in less than an hour! Considering our tummy full masa tu LOL. The keria were soooooooooooo goooooooddddd alhamdulillah …

We reached KL almost maghrib, mandi solat and out for coin laundry&light dinner hehe. No klebang coconut shake but thats okay. Next pregnancy lah cemtuw ??

Thank you Melaka for the memories, see you again inshaAllah with the new addition in the family amiiiin

The Unforgettable 38w4d Checkup

So a week after we went for another check up. Which was yesterday. The hilarious one i must say. Funny but complicated. Lol

Few days before i was sooo looking forward for birth, coz first; my husband finally here (yay!), second; its about time when Aaqil was born ie at around 38wks, third; cant wait to meet this lil bub, his weight is just niceeee, just the right ‘size’ for me to push him out? I even googled “gentle birthing tips” and “how to induce labor naturally” ha ha thats how serious i was. We even planned the long weekend for jalan2 at mall dari hujung ke hujung just to kickoff the labor ;p

So yesterday, husband teased me. Nak naik tangga tak sampai tingkat 6 (the clinic) . But i replied takpelah, tgk nanti kalau baby belum engagaged kita turun pakai tangga lah. He he.

I gained 2kgs in a week!! Yayy. Siap cakap yesss masa timbang. Nurse tu pun pelik2 tny kenapa suka haha. 

Fiza called my name. Tak sempat nak duduk dpn Dr Seri terus Dr Seri cakap “kausar duk diam2 ya” pastu tgk my face clueless, dia sambung…”Coz i’ll be flying to xxx tonite. I’ll only be back on 1 Feb…”

Buntang mata jap. Taktau nak react camne. Pandang husband. Pastu sengih lama2 tergelak sbb kelakar dr seri cakap gitu ??

Dr Seri kata the plan was adhoc and she has to make this trip yada yada. Family related thingy. Tapi rasa cam kelakarrrr sangat the whole session we were laughing our hearts out sebab now we have to plan to just stay home the whole weekend lol. And no more Jan babyyyy. Dgn Fiza2 pun sama masuk dalam cerita psl cny holiday plan lol

Dr Seri quickly ok let us scan the baby so we know where we’re at. She pressed my tummy. Oooo tinggi lagi ni. Phew baby has not engaged yet. Haha phew okay. And he gained 200g in a week alhamdulillahhh. No more worries. Ummi makan byk. If the babys out after Dr Seri balik, he’ll prolly be 3.2kg camtu whoaaa. Aaqil was only 2.85kg mind you. She even said that she doesnt like to induce her patients just because she’ll be away for vacation its ufair to them. And she’s not keen on ‘giveaway’ her patients to other gynaes. Mcm rasa xbest gitu. Awwww

The head was still ‘floating’ as shown in the ultrasound screen. Not in the birth canal yet. Not just yet. Alhamdulillahh 

Dr Shilpa will be replacing Dr Seri’s cases when shes away. But ye lah of course you want your own gynae to be there when u in labor kan. Plus shes the only muslim lady gynae in the hosp. I want her to sambut my baby…

So. For now, all i can do is not to induce labor naturally just yet. Let the baby snuggle a lil bit longer. Enjoy the last few days being preganant. Aaqil to enjoy his last few days of being the only child. Oh and did i tell you that i’ve begin my nesting instinct — i can spent this cny weekend spring cleaning my wardrobe, my fridge, my freezer… He he

Having said that, on topppppp of everything, the most important thing is my baby is safely delivered, healthy and we both have no complications post delivery. Amiin. Whoever sambut the baby is no 2. Babies know their birthday. Allah knows best. Right. 
Oh we’ll be meeting the gynae again on 2nd Feb! What happen in between today to that date is rahsia Allah. Pray for us!! ❤️

Of Recent Checkup

So earlier today we went for our 38wks check up. Was quite nervous the whole time because we need only oneeeeeee more week before we can let the baby out. Aci ke ayat cemtuh. Coz next week husband will still be in KK. And i still have to close out my project final review. CNY only we can call “its timeeee babyyyyy” ? So sekarang baby pls help yourself inside ummi buatlah mcm rumah sendiri sementara tunggu walid balik okayy

So i just gained 100gram from my weight 2wks ago ie 60.7kg. Say whatttt. We actually went for brunch at Haslam prior to the checkup — nasi campur ngan roti canai pisang dgn 2gelas air. So i thot that wud make me emm 2kgs heavier, no? In total i’ve gained 13kgs from my pre pregnancy weight. Ok la kan. 

So masa scan i was hoping that the baby took all the 100g plus 100g from i dunno where. Our 36wks recorded 2.6kgs. Today? 2.76kg. When Dr Seri plotted the fetal growth in the chart, it seemed the baby growth is at plateau abit. Growth not as expected. 

Suspen.

“Hmm kenapa eh doc. Saya makan banyak dah… Amniotic fluid ok kan”

“Tu la i tgk mcm plateau ni. Hmm. Let me measure the fluid. So far i nampak normal je. If not i kena induce you…”

Terus muka pucat pandang husben. Dalam hati doa supaya everything is normal. I dun fancy the word induce. Tskkk

“Ok sini ok. Here also ok. Hah… Ur fluid level just fine. Kenapa ni adikkkk. I rasa u memang jenis ruan kecik ni…”

Pandai Dr Seri sedapkan hati i huhu

Oh btw baby still on the high side. Tak turun lagi. Which makes me relief. Coz we need at least another week pretty pls. CNY onwards nanti kita jalan bebanyak ok. Ukur jubin mall, squat dsbg

So next checkup is in 6days. 

Lepas pcmc singgah low yat plaza. Husband nak cari barang. So lepak minum frappe nak kasi berat katanya. But honestly i ate a lot. Err i think. Tho at times i ate in less portion coz my tummy getting smaller i guess. 

As long as the baby is fine and healthy we are more than happy amiiin

So baby pls stay put til next checkup and grow sikit je lagi before we meet okayhhh ❤️
