The Story of my Pregnancy

Waiting for delivery day makes me excited and nervous at the same time. Knowing that I’m going to have my little miracle can’t make me happier. It feels like I’m on the top of the world. Everyday, I talk to my baby, letting him know that I am always ready whenever he wants to come out. I am asking several friends about their labor condition. The answers varied. Some say it’s hurt but it’s okay, but some others say it’s very nice. I do believe that everybody has her own experience. As for me, I strongly believe that when my active labor comes, it will be very nice and comfortable.

I keep suggesting myself that my experience will be the enjoyable and comfortable one. According to my instructor at hypnobirthing training, our body resembles a computer. However, our body is a bio-computer; a live-computer. We can set the program that’s installed in our body. What we assume is what our body will feel. Therefore, if we assume that the labor is nice and comfortable, then it will be felt by our body. To sum up, keep thinking positively on what we are going to face on the labor day. Put aside worry and anxiety in our mind. Keep focusing that everything will be okay and we can endure any condition.

Besides that mental attitude, we should keep practicing our body so our endurance will be positively maintained until the delivery time comes. It’s very important for a pregnant mummy to do exercise on regular basis as it will be very useful in labor day. The well-exercised muscle is one of important key of successful delivery. Walking and swimming can be a good choice of exercise for pregnant mummy. The importance of the sufficient-healthy food intake should not be underestimated. More vegetables and fruits are highly recommended.

Pregnancy is an amazing thing and the baby that we carry withing is very priceless and precious. Nothing we can do but enjoy and be grateful of it. It really completes my nature as a woman:)

Somewhere over the Rainbow

Many times, I know I no need any particular reason for being happy. The feeling just pops up inside of me when I sit in from my desktop, starting my day with hectic business. It’s just felt when my hubby drops me at the office and picks me up when I’m done or when I call up my parents on phone. I don’t plan it. I never plan to be happy. It’s just inside of me, wiping away my sadness and other wasting-time mourning.

And this little tiny creature who will complete my life, just like my lovely hubby who’s been staring it since the first time we met. One of songs that I keep singing for my baby in the silent of the night, while feeling the subtle kick inside of my womb, is Somewhere over the rainbow”. The kick is just a divine sign for me as I know my petite miracle says, ” Hello Bunda, I’m already awake. Can’t wait to play with you”.

Indeed, I’m convinced that the joyful of my life is already in me. Thanks God.

Somewhere over the Rainbow

Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high.
There’s a land that I heard of Once in a lullaby.
Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue.
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.
Someday I’ll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far Behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops, Away above the chimney tops.
That’s where you’ll find me.
Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly. Birds fly over the rainbow,
Why then – oh, why can’t I?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow,
Why, oh, why can’t I?

Emotional Change

I notice several changes on myself during my three-month pregnancy. I find it’s so funny and silly one time.

Every body knows that I am not a sentimental person. Not easy to cry unless for some extraordinary occasions, such as when I married or seeing my best friends wedding. Other than that exceptional thing, I am not easy to to drop tear. However, it’s different when I am pregnant. I cry easily. I cried once seeing a comedy-family movie played in a channel in our TV cable. My hubby couldn’t believe that I cried on his arm at that time. But he then knew the emotional change happening on me. In usual condition, it’s a once-in-a-blue-moon cry:D. When reading the love story of Ralph Tampubolon and Melissa Karim, again I cried:D

I am not a person I used to be, in the way my hobby watching movie at cinema. Before pregnant, I went to cinema at almost weekend, watching movie with my hubby who’s also a movie freak. The condition is very different now. I prefer a lot staying at home, laying on bed, doing browsing and chatting and also cooking. If bored, I swift to books or mags.

I love a lot staying at home and being only with my hubby rather than going to mall or other place where crowds gather. Enjoying my time with him is priceless, moreover I spend a lot my time at the office during the working days. Therefore, at weekend I cook special food for him. I ask him the menu he wants to eat and I will cook for him.

While pregnant, you can believe how much time I spend only for sleeping in the day. I can sleep almost 3-4 hours in the day, to sum up. Luckily, my hubby does understand my condition. The progesterone  hormone makes my body exhausted easily and drowsy, of course:D.

Then my care and love to my hubby is increasing day by day. I feel so much blessed to have a caring hubby like him. The problem with my pregnancy makes our bound is even tighter and opens my eyes how tremendous his love to me. Many times he said” Ayah loves Bunda. Never ever forget about that, Bun”. Remembering what he said and what he did to me, again makes me burst into tears. I love u too, Ayah:)
