highlights of 2013

assalamualaikum!

every year lepas my birthday, i will start counting down the days to the end of the year.
rasa cam laju je masa berlalu.

so here are the highlights of this year! (yang i ingat la heeeeekks)

1. Holidays!
eleleleeehhh!
first time bercuti ngan cik abang kat Bali.

south africa with family
and of course, my favourite memory was with these lion cubs. COMEY NOK MAPUH!

i'm glad i got to see new places this year, despite being pregnant and all. alhamdulillah!

2. Pregnancy!
because of my pregnancy, i hardly went out and was less active than i've been last year. i missed a lot of lectures & sharing sessions, invitations to events and talks, even weddings!

my first trimester was the worst. asyik muntah sampai nangis nangis kat adik. hahaha! my adik dah la tak paham pape lagi (being only 16 years old). and i muntah so much sampai my toilet sink sumbat. bila dah sumbat tu, terpaksa mencari alternative tempat muntah. 
unfortunately, my brothers rooms la jadi mangsa tempat =p


second trimester ok la. better sikit. bila pergi south africa la health paling terbaik.
tapi bila balik je from south africa, body start meragam balik.


third trimester sambung kes muntah tapi tak seteruk masa first trimester. 
and third trimester dah start nervous pasal giving birth and what to expect when you're expecting. (yeap. i actually watched the movie!)

because i was always at home, i read a lot of my old books and bought a lot of new ones too. it has been sooo super long since i've read a novel. last i think was masa kat uni?
buku buku beli masa big bad wolf last year dapat pun habiskan baca. wuahahaha! =p


3. Having a baby!
when i was 36 weeks pregnant, everyone in my family - and me duhh - started to get nervous to the point that my parents and husband tak bagi i keluar sangat.
tanak i terberanak konon.
walaupun jiwa memberontak, tapi apakan daya..
topakso den duduk ghumah gak..
nasib baik ada business La Kayena to think about and a lot of books and movies to keep me company =)

sepatutnya kitorang poie pre-natal class tapi sebab classes are on weekends, memang susah kita nak attend. sebab kitorang naive.
if i could turn back time, i would've gone!
alhamdulillah gak la zaman ni zaman teknologi. sume benda boleh google je.
still, it'll be much better to learn and experience it face on with nurses.
i actually learnt how to breastfeed on youtube! among many other stuff. hahahahaa! =p

the experience of giving birth was seriously most unexpected. i know it'll hurt but i didn't expect it to hurt that bad. 
and to think i survived it?? wahh kagum ngan diri sendiri.
bila fikir tokmak yang ada 7 kids, lagi la kagum!
dengar cite orang yang ada 25 kids?! itu lagi la fuaaaahhh!!

hebat hebat.

anyway, alhamdulillah 11 november, lahirlah anak kami yang pertama, nadrah tomey tomey =')
first week lepas dilahirkan.
susah betul nak bedung dia. 
tangan mesti loktang! dia suka tangan sebelah pipi dia.
masa scan 4D (pregnant 5 months) pun tangan dia memang kat pipi camtu haha!!


4. Pantang
haih.
bila dalam pantang, yang paling tak best ialah bengkung badan bersama entah hape pilis param kejadah.
bila kapur thingy kat perut tu kering, dia jadi serbuk. and anywhere i walk, i'll leave a trail of powder on the floor. it's so annoying!
makanan tu sume memang sedap sampai si husband jeles ngan my food. ngehehehe =p

taking care of the baby masa awal awal pun agak susah sebab tak adjust lagi ngan dia.
ada gak time yang i jadi down sebab tak dapat nak calm her down.
nadrah ni, bila nangis.. agak gangsta sebab kuat sangat!
for a small body, she can really scream!
mana tak kita panic bila dia nangis macam nak terkeluar anak tekak, and bila dia silent betul. hahahahaa =p

no wonder anak pertama macam special sikit.
=)
maybe i'll write about this in a different post. heeeee

ummi, stop taking pictures of meeeeeeeee!!!

pssshh nadrah. 
no way am i gonna stop taking embarrassing pictures of you.
no way!


in short, this year is mainly about family.
my brothers and my parents have been so supportive and since nadrah entered our world, i've seen a new side to my brothers. 
dulu kitorang gaduh tahap tumbuk tendang, and to see them soften up to a baby, how they carry nadrah and comfort her, sweet sangat! =')

guess that's it! it's a brief blog post.. type pun laju laju sebab nadrah tengah tido heheee..

anyhoots, alhamdulillah for this year!
hopefully 2014 will be better than 2013. in sha Allah =)
God Bless!
