Assalamualaikum and Ramadhan Kareem everyone..
I have safely delivered my 3rd bundle of joy on 4th May 2016 (Wednesday at 7.15pm) at 36 wks of pregnancy. Totally unexpected delivery, (previous delivery at 37-38wks), kali ni dengan water bag pecah awal, mmg panic juga (first experience having water broke at home). After all, it was a smooth delivery (normal delivery without any pain relief, Alhamdulillah).
Talking about my previous pregnancy experience, Alhamdulillah, I enjoyed my 3rd pregnancy so much. Only get to know conceived after 7wks, tu pun lepas pergi check up nk pergi umrah in Oct last year. And most importantly I end up my first trimester with flying colors. No nausea and admitted drama compared to first & second pregnancy. Alhamdulillah. I also managed to complete my umrah last year with the lil ones inside, such a beautiful moments in my life, MashaAllah. So grateful with the chance given.
Since I quit from my previous job almost 2 years already, handling children and at same time manage my small online business, really made my daily life such hectic and tiring one. Seriously, sometimes I had to skip my meals as I was so busied ke hulur ke hilir getting stocks at distributor places and pick up kids from schools.
For this pregnancy, instead of taking a lot of vitamins and supplementary products as my previous pregnancy, sebaliknya I banyak amalkan makanan sunnah such dates, habbatussauda (black seed oil), honey and pomegranate. Selain daripada memberi tenaga untuk kekal aktif with my hectic routine, by having these natural supplements also will help the development of brain and main structure for the child inside. Hopefully boleh istiqamah with this routine so that it will help during milk production during nursing stage as well.
During my last pregnancy, I mmg tak control langsung on my diet. Suka hati makan, with excessive sugar in take *mane tak asyik sweet tooth memanjang hahaha*, tup tup, Ryan keluar with 3.64 kg weight and mase nak deliver pun gynae bgtau air ketuban bnyk due to my uncontrolled food in takes. Of course at that time, I gained almost 10kgs from my pre-pregnancy weight *which made me struggled very hard to get back to my normal weight after delivery huhu*. Lesson learned! After being advised by dietitian during the 1st check up at hospital, I knew that I really need to control on my daily food intakes, less sugar, low calories & fat for this 3rd pregnancy. Alhamdulillah, salah satu habit yang I kekalkan sebelum pregnant lagi to take infused water. Paling simple pun with slices of lemon inside. I guess I could be one factor pregnancy kali ni morning sickness I tak teruk.
My infused water.
Sekarang ni kat shopping complex pun bnyk dah jual cold pressed juice kan, singgah beli 1,2 botol for stocks. Kalau tak just ensure to eat a lot of fruits.
With current weather yang sangat tak menentu, it’s so important for pregnant mommies to stay hydrated and at the same time to get a lot of nutrients for the development of the fetus inside. For my case, my dietitian also advised to ensure all my food intakes with very less sugar content. So when I survey for milk supplement, I really need to ensure the content of milk also with very less sugar and fat specially.
Alhamdulillah, I'm so lucky this time, I've been introduced with this maternal milk from Wyeth Nutrition when I was invited to attend their media event last year. Honestly, I am always having problem taking milk during my pregnancy, maybe because of the flavor and also my bad nausea at that time, memang susah I nak accept maternal milk during pregnancy. *I'm so picky that way! errkkk* So when I've been approached to taste Wyeth Nutrition Maternal & Lactating supplement milk, of course I was lil bit skeptical about the taste. Trying to be cool at that time, hahaha I just consumed a small cup of milk given by the sales girl and woahhh to my surprise, it tasted good with the improved formula!
Good thing to know is about this maternal milk, the content is with 86% less fat, so far it helps to control my weight pregnancy and at the same time this formula contains of high DHA content, Folic Acid, Iron, Calcium, Choline and Pre-biotic supplement such as Oligofructose which are really important for the baby growth. So far, I just gained about 6 - 7 kgs during my 3rd pregnancy. So hopefully it won't take long for me to kick all the fats and get back to my normal weight soon. *pray for me hehe*
Since that, I chose S-26® MAMA milk as my maternal supplement milk for my 3rd pregnancy. I love their new improved taste- Vanilla flavor. This is how I consumed this maternal milk, dissolved in luke warm water and add on some water. Chilled over the night, and tadaa..yummy creamy Vanilla milk for brekkie and also before sleep. Seriously memang yummy! Try it!
