My Pregnancy Diary #8: Masalah Kesihatan.

Hurm, google sane, google sini, tiba-tiba rasa nak check my health condition during pregnancy. Maklumlah, masa mengandung macam-macam komplikasi yang kita alami. Pengalaman masing-masing berbeza-beza pulak tu.. Ada yang setiap kehamilan, ada komplikasi tersendiri jugak. So, let's check~!

Antara komplikasi kehamilan atau proses mengandung ini adalah seperti:
Untuk kehamilan pertama ni:
  • Alahan atau alergik terhadap makanan atau haiwan - alahan pada pil iron warna coklat yg  hospital bagi tu ade la.. Asal makan je pil tu, rasa nak terkeluar balik semua isi perut..
  • Muntah-muntah yang teruk (morning sickness) - alhamdulillah takde..
  • Kuat makan sehinggakan berat badan meningkat. - ade la sikit.. hihi..
  • Berat badan yang meningkat akan mencetuskan obesiti dan obesiti akan mencetuskan penyakit kencing manis kepada ibu hamil. - yang ni insya Allah takde le..
  • Sembelit yang teruk  - alhamdulillah tak teruk.. paling lame 2 hari tak buang, itu pun only during 1st trimester je.. masuk 2nd trimester, dah takde sembelit..
  • Buasir  - alhamdulillah takde..
  • Jangkitan kuman (bakteria) pada saluran kencing, keputihan  - alhamdulillah takde..
  • Anemia iaitu kekurangan sel darah merah. Apabila berlaku anemia, bekalan oksigen yang dibekalkan ibu dan bayi tidak mencukupi. Jadi situasi ini cukup bahaya terhadap ibu dan bayi dalam kandungan. - after last checkup, still ok..
  • Sakit urat dan kekejangan otot kaki. - ade ade ade ~

Hopefully, proses bersalin juga dipermudahkan Allah.. Ameen..

My Pregnancy Diary #7: Surveys on milk bottles and storage.

I was not so sure whether we're going to need the milk bottles since I've planned (and I pray) that I will fully breastfeed my baby, but we still have to consider the worst case scenario. For example, in public, I don't think I will be comfortable enough to breastfeed it. But that doesn't mean I want to give my baby the formula milk. That's where breast pump and milk storage are in for their job. Since I already have the breast pump, passed down from my cousin, I only need to find the correct storage.


the breast pump that I currently have

I surveyed all brands from the cheapest to the most expensive one by taking into account factors such as BPA-free bottle/container, teats' size, the shapes and the price range. It was quite a difficult decision to make when it comes to your baby's safety and health. Before, most milk bottles with BPA-free criteria came from the expensive brands. Recently, since the government had announced on the ban of milk bottles made of Polycarbonate (PC) which could produce bisphenol-A (BPA) when react with hot water, most milk bottles in the markets are now BPA-free. However, there is still doubt on whether they are truly BPA-free or not.

As I went deeper, I found out about the identification code of a plastic container. Here I thought, they only indicate how long a plastic container could be reused, but I was wrong. There are more about the numbers. So I share here with you several sites/blogs that have shared the full meaning of the code numbers specifically relating to milk bottles;

http://sufri82.wordpress.com/2011/04/14/bpa-dan-botol-susu-bayi/
http://www.yusrinahata.com/2011/03/19/botol-bpa-tip-mudah-mengenal-pastinya/
http://akubiomed.com/2011/pengharaman-botol-susu-bayi-polikarbonat-bisphenol-a/#axzz1kwpLSeYs


Kenal Pasti Botol Susu Jenis Polikarbonat
  • Bersifat keras dan lutsinar yang mana ia mengandungi BPA.
  • Botol susu tersebut juga boleh dikenali melalui kod identifikasi plastik yang biasa didapati di bawah botol susu bayi.
  • Kod identifikasinya adalah ‘Nombor 7′, ‘Nombor 7 dan PC’, ‘Nombor 7 dan other’.
  • Botol susu bayi yang bebas BPA biasanya dilabelkan dengan perkataan ‘BPA Free’ atau bebas BPA.

The last point triggered a doubt in me. I surveyed on Avent milk bottles that have the BPA-free/ 0% BPA label where under the milk bottle, the identification code number is 7. How is that possible???

Yesterday, I surveyed these milk bottles at the shopping mall. No worries now since most cheaper brands are also BPA-free and they offer beautiful shapes too!~


Nombor yang sesuai bagi digunakan sebagai bahan botol bayi adalah bahan bernombor 5 atau PP (Polypropelene). Bahan ini biasanya digunakan sebagai botol ubat dan penyedut minuman.
Tip mudah mengenal pasti botol susu BPA Free:
1. Terdapat label pembungkusan ‘BPA Free’
2. Sekiranya tiada label BPA Free, lihat pada bahagian bawah botol terdapat nombor 5 dalam segitiga beranak panah
3. Botol jenis ini berwarna keruh dan lebih lembut
4. Harga botol susu jenis ini biasanya lebih mahal, satu botol lebih RM10
5. Botol susu jenis kaca juga adalah BPA Free


As for me?? Tak decide lagi.. Hihi.. Nak kena decide cepat-cepat ni.. masa dah agak suntuk.. :(

My Pregnancy Diary #4: Baby moves & kicks! and tips to avoid stretch and scratch marks on the stomach.

It's been 23 weeks now, baby started moving since week 20 or earlier, can't remember but it feels weird, having something moving in the stomach.. hahah..

Now, it kicks almost all the time.. especially between zohor and asar prayer and when I am about to sleep at night.. Sometimes it feels like it slides from one side to another.. it really gives me goosebumps in the early days (around week 18 to 19), but now it feels normal.. :D

Now, I would like to share some tips on how to avoid stretch and scratch marks on the stomach. Simple! For the record. my mom's stomach never had unpretty marks resulted from pregnancy.

  1. Each night before sleep, apply olive oil on the stomach, and often after 5 month and above.
  2. If you feel itchy, don't scratch directly. Instead rub from the outside gently using a comb. Try to control your hands in your sleep.


That's all for now.. Later kalau ada tips lagi, I'll share k.. ~~
