My confinement dulu...

owh owh... i received and overwhelmed response from yesterday's post... i guess lots of working moms out there, especially first timers are really well informed regarding breastfeeding... :) maybe same as them, i'm thankfufl to technology aka internet which allows myself to learn all sort of things and know all sort of stuff from it... especially when me no like to read books! ahahahhah... *no good habit... jgn tiru*

so today.. lemme share with you what happened during my confinement... happy? stress? tired? hurt? hmmmm... this is how it goes....

but first... down to memory lane a bit... :) amik mood dulu...
Armand, one day old.. after breastfeeding, football style...

me = halfway induce.. almost finished one bottle.. nothing happened! and me sleepy odi... ahhahhah....

owh.. back to confinement!
1. I took Pati Ikan Haruan Polleney everyday for a month!! and eat only Ikan Haruan Dish for 2 weeks (rice + vege + fruit mesti ada yaaa) !! lots of Milo and plain water!!! on 6th day checkup, my c-sect wound completely heal... doc gave me 2 thumbs up! ehehhe....
2. LD Venus Gold for 3 weeks! (this one recommended by SIL's fren who had c-sect too... seriously, this helps a lot with  'inner-pain')
3. Had urut/tungku session on after 15days... as advised by Kakak Urut because of the c-sect.
4. I bath my baby everyday during confinement. I consider this as my exercise.. ehheee...
5. I can feel my post-natal blues kicking in on the 3rd week... when my nipple cracked/ bleed badly :( i can still remember the pain until now.... and i settled for FM twice a day for my baby so that i can let my nipples rest and heal.. huhu..
6. I will cry easily in little petty things... and i also sometimes cry without any reason.... i cried very hard one time when hubby said, "cuba lah... u boley buat tu..." hmmm.. i felt that hubby didn't understand my pain and forcing me to breasfeed baby whereas he just trying to give me some moral support... heh

Just my luck and i'm very grateful for this! Alhamdulillah...
1. My mom is around for 3 whole months! :) (1 month before + 2 months after). Every time i cried, she will just come and rub my feet/ hands and hug me... she cook and does all the housechores. love u mak!!! *cry cry*
2. My baby is not fussy! woke up the most 2 times at night and easily falls asleep... if he's colicky.. maybe once a week, he'll cry more.. just rub oil on his tummy... hold him and cuddle him, he'll back to sleep...
3. My understanding and helpful hasben!!! He woke up every night every time i fed the baby, took the baby from me to change diapers and put the baby to sleep.. daytime during weekend, he'll take over my moms duty with the baby so that she can rest.. he does most of the diaper change than myself... :) only thing he didn't dare to do is bathing the baby.... takut slip katanya.. hehe.. he took care/ arrange visitors so that i have enough rest! love u abang!!

My own NO-NO
1. Jamu! :) Hot stuff for my body.. not good if you are breastfeeding
2. Less water... hmmm... i hate strict confinement myth! yes.. it's a myth!
3. Diet!! sorry babe... my baby is wayyyyy too important than my figure! :) baby first! diet, exercise, back to anak dara figure? i give myself 6 months! :) i have frens who trying their very hard to sell me Premium Beautiful corset and brag about her successful figure... i asked her, are you breastfeeding your baby? she said no.. so, please... i'm not judging you in any way, so please don't judge me... :) i'm ok with my figure... my husband is ok with my figure.. so it's your problem if your husband really wants you to become 34-28-34 right after birth.. sekian! and this is a fact ladies... cutting down your food = low milk supply.. as simple as that.. so choose your path.. you can't have the best of both worlds... but i have frens whom 'automatically' slim right after confinement.. this one special case.. hehe... i'm happy for her! i wish my body type is like dat....ekekekkk...

back to corset.. cos i don't want ppl to misunderstood... wearing corset does not make your milk supply low... wearing corset makes your tummy 'smaller'... when you eat while wearing corset, u can't eat much and u can't drink much.. this makes your milk supply low... bear in mind, if you are consuming plain water almost 12 glasses per day like me, for the sake of breastfeeding, you will need to pee every hour or so... sanggup ke nak bukak pakai PB yg berlapis2 tu 7 kali sehari masa kat opis???? tu tak masuk kena bukak sbb nak pump lagi???? hmmmmm... sorry lah... tak practical langsung... 

ladies.. if you want to lose weight.. please and please... only watch what you eat (calorie intake) and exercise!! this is the only formula to lose weight successfully and most important.. healthily!!! :) pakai PB mmg la cantik figure uols... cuba bukak? selambak semua... ahhahahah....

kenapa saya sgt confident pasal weight loss ni? hmmm... i've been struggling with my weight since birth! ahahha... pills/ tea/ corsets.. i've tried everything... nothing works! but, i managed to be healthy at my age, with superb stamina (gituuu.. puji diri sendiri.. tak koser)... with good dieting habits and exercise regularly... ekekke.. so my target, in 6 months (after giving birth) i will get my ideal weight which is 65kg.. :) you wait arr you wait... ahahha... do you know at one time i have 6 packs? ahahha... tadaaaaaaa........

this was during our Krabi Trip.. 9 of us i think... and these are my friends sampai akhirat.. love uols too!
p/s: girls pun ada.. takde dlm gamba ni je... eheh

Mummy tgh berangan nak kurus by raya ni.. sempat kah?? sob sobss...
