My sentimental heart

November 23, 2014

“A baby is growing like a flower in the garden of my womb.”

I don’t know if this is about the pregnancy or hormones or anything, I just want to write to my heart’s content. It’s a lazy Sunday afternoon and I’m sitting on my bed listening to music and typing this post. My baby is probably napping, we just had a glass of milk tea and cookies. Yesterday me and husband saw our baby’s ultrasound; and I swear every time I see our baby, I feel a little teary. Happiness, love, and excitement fill me. I saw the baby was floating inside me. Bouncing the tiny feet, probably kicking; and looked as if his/her hands trying to touch me. Maybe our baby was waving at us. Maybe our baby was just as excited as we were when we got to ‘meet’.

The doctor told us that we’re okay. That I can travel quite far as long as I get as much rest as I need. Not overworking myself, keep consuming my vitamins and no spicy/sour foods cause it might worsen my digestive system.

When we got home, I couldn’t forget what I just witnessed. Another life force depending on me. Our future child who represents our existence is going to come out of me. The child who will be our warrior; our best friend, the love of our lives. My husband held my hand and asked me how it feels to get pregnant “Is it hard? Painful?” I don’t know how to properly answer this. Somehow I don’t think if he was asking the right question. I told him saying/justifying that “getting pregnant is hard, getting pregnant is painful” sounds ungrateful and I am accepting the conditions that I’m going through. I may be flawed, but I’m improving. I am dealing with whatever God sends me on my journey to Mamahood. I am, trying.

Sometimes when I get a little hurt after doing house-chores I put my hand + husband’s hand on my belly. Rubbing our baby gently and asking if he/she is fine. It feels nice to have our hands rubbed my belly; warm and soothing. There are times when I get pregnancy sickness too; those times were hard but again, when things make me a little hurt I will rub my belly and softly tell our baby to help me. I think the baby listens. Cause the pains go away, and I can continue to do things. I think our baby feels what I feel. They help me to get through my days.

Me and husband keep making scenarios of how we will raise our child and sweet stories we -still- make up to satisfy our longing to their existence. We are excited and happy and worried as well. I have to be strong for them. I have to be brave.

This morning our baby woke me up and we prayed together. The baby probably had a great dream and reminded me not to forget to pray. I hope the baby is healthy and safe; I hope I can always be healthy too, so I can take care of our baby.

I am excited of our journey in the future, the three of us. Please send love and best wishes to us.


Dateng-dateng Hamil :D

November 17, 2014

It’s been months I haven’t updated my blog hahahahaha.. Saya sempat beberapa kali nulis sesuatu buat diposting di blog, tapi selalu berakhir tragis di draft folder. Kalo ga salah, sampe 5 judul postingan yang ngendon di sana 😆

So, how are you? I hope life throws pleasant surprises at each one of you ^_^

Sudah sekitar 5 bulan saya menikah, dan Allah yang Mahabaik menitipkan pada saya dan suami saya seorang anak. Yes, I’m pregnaaaanttt!! Yayayayayayyyy~~ Alhamdulillah sampai saat ini, usia kehamilan saya hampir mencapai 3 bulan, and I feel wonderful. My baby makes me more diligent hahahahah.. Rajin makan dan rajin mandi terutama 😆

Gimana rasanya hamil?
Some friends ask me that. And it is usually followed with the question “Mual/mabok nggak?” Di awal bulan ke dua saya memang sempat mual-mual terus, apalagi kalo nyium bau nasi yang baru dimasak, makan tumis-tumisan/makanan berminyak, trus kalo pengap gitu udaranya rasanya sumpek dan memicu mual juga. Tapi cerita mual-mual sya insha Allah nggak lama, karena sampai sekarang nggak gitu lagi. Makan sama tidur terus, saya. Sampe temen saya heran, “Apa kamu nggak mual to, kok moam-maem terus?” Hihihi.. Cuman walaupun saya nggak mual, makannya harus hati-hati dan sedikit-sedikit. Jadi yang biasanya maruk sekali makan bisa 2 – 3 piring (nasi), sekarang cuma setengah porsi. Kalo dipaksa makan banyak, perut rasanya begah dan jadi susah burping (sendawa). Jangankan sendawa, kentut aja susah. Saya juga sedang dalam ‘niat suci’ mengurangi makanan ber-MSG dan juga yang rasanya asam/pedas. Kalo nekat, biasanya beberapa menit setelah itu perut saya rasanya jadi melilit.. Ga enak banget rasanya.
Oh iya, hamil bikin saya jadi lebih mudah capek dan rentan stres 😆
Kalo soal mudah capek emang easy to understand ya, karena the body is adjusting to the new life inside of it. Thus the exhaustion comes when we overwork. Soal rentan stres, sepertinya memang manusia sekarang gampang stres ya. Hahahahah.. Teman saya yang baru saja melahirkan ngasih saya input, kalo bumil tu harus selalu hepi. Kalo gampang stres, kasihan bayinya. Nanti ikut-ikutan gloomy. Biasanya kalo saya udah ngrasa fed up with something, saya nge-game. Candy Crush is my savior! 😆 If not, I YouTube stuffs. Worse, like most women who lost their minds, I GO SHOPPING~!!!

Saya juga ngidam, tapi ngidamnya masih tolerable sih. Kalo misalnya belum keturutan, ya ditahan. Sekarang saya lagi pengen banget selat Solo tapi apa daya, Cikarang mana ada 😥 Ya ditahan lah sampe besok pulang Solo.

Duh saya bingung harus cerita apa lagi. I think I’ve missed reviewing books/movies here, and I will do it probably next week. My personal life is wonderful. I feel grateful to have such a loving, caring, attentive husband like mine. I am grateful to have my baby. I hope we’re always healthy and happy 🙂
