"Nothing prepares you for motherhood. Suddenly there's all this responsibility and no room for failure." - Amy Mastura, Women's Weekly May 2010
I am 40 weeks and 3 days pregnant today. How fun is that? Kah kah.
I admit that it does get frustrating. Tak sabar tau nak jumpa dan peluk gomol budak montel ini. But I keep reminding myself to be thankful to Allah that I am still healthily pregnant, the baby is all montel and doing great, and myself, despite my larger-than-life tummy, is feeling emotionally and physically fine. Alhamdulillah to that :)
But yeah, larger-than-life tummy equals discomfort, keletihan and you feel in the blank lah.
We went to the doctor today and were told that I am nowhere close to labour. Air ketuban masih banyak, baby’s head is not yet engaged and he is still gaining weight, and of course lah, my cervix has yet to dilate. It’s like he’s taking his own sweet time and having the time of his life in his mummy’s tummy! Selesa sangat ya, sayang? Kah kah kah.
Anyways, if this continues until next Monday, invasive procedures would be involved lah nampaknya and I redha sajalah if kena induced or potong. As long as both of us akan sihat dan selamat. But until then, all I have to do is relax and monitor the baby’s movements.
So yeah, do pray for us, darling readers!
Well, the thing about being overdue is your tummy gets bigger by the day. I’ve got this maternity blouse that used to be so besar that it looked like baju pinjam on me last month, but was so ketat when I wore it yesterday. And people stare! They really stare! As if I’m carrying a time bomb that would explode any seconds or as if my air ketuban would meleleh mengalir secara tiba-tiba. Kah kah. I don’t blame them though. I am big, really.
And do not let me start on the unnecessary comments. Do not let me start. Haish.
Hey why do I sound so irritable? I’m not! Really I’m not. OK, I did break down and cried my heart out yesterday sebab tak sempat jumpa my gynae and had to reschedule my appointment. Agak psiko ya. Kah kah you should see the shocked look on my husband’s face when I suddenly broke down meraung macam kena tumbuk. Entah kenapa. To be safe, lets blame it all on the hormone. Ngeh. I’m human after all. But yeah, most of the time, I actually do feel great!
Great. But very anxious. Hey, I’m human after all.
