[A story] Another blessing is about to come...

Assalaamu'alaikum blog readers,

Pheww... It feels like forever since the last time I wrote a blog. I'm sorry. I don't know, I feel like my writing ability doesn't come in handy when I sit on my chair, facing pile of documents to do. Sounds like a cheap excuse, huh? Yeea well, couldn't think of any cheesier pick-up line, heheh...

So anyway,

It began about 3 weeks ago, around Sept 3. I've prepared a softex in my bag just in case my period was coming. My period comes in orderly. I have around 23 - 25 days of fertile period. So usually my period always comes earlier every month, can be 5 - 7 days earlier since to the last period in the last month. On August, I had my period on the date 10th, so I should have had another period on Sept 3.

I should have had it.

But I didn't.

That monthly guest didn't come till the date showed at 10th. I started to consider whether I should buy a test pack or just wait for another week. Just be patient for 7 more days, the period might come... or not.


Considering I still wore those pair of wedges, hi-heels and whatever those varices-inducement footwears named, it scared the hell outta me if I really was pregnant. Could harm the fetus. So I decided to buy the test pack that night on the way home from work. This not-having-period-when-i-should-have-had-it-a-week-ago was quite stressing me out. I wasn't on a baby program because I & husband hadn't talked seriously in a short term about having another baby, although I have stopped my KB monthly injection since a year ago. No, it doesn't mean that we don't wanna add more screeching sound from a baby's mouth in our house anymore, it's just that... No serious talk before, means no plan has made regarding this baby program thing (Though actually I am ready enough to have another baby bump in my tummy ^^).

The night before I tested my urine to a test pack, I dreamt of a two-stripe result on it after plunging it to my urine. Then I woke up in the morning, Sept 11th. Feeling nervous I went to a bathroom, put my morning urine on a little plastic bottle and plunged the test pack into it.

10 seconds... 20, 30...

Oh gosh, it's coming...

40, 50...

If it shows two stripes, I'm gonna run & hug my hubby. If it's not...

60 seconds!

Here was the result...

Wednesday, Sept 11

Yes!! A wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide smile, ladies 'n gents.

Alhamdulillah.... Alhamdulillah wa syukurillaah...

Went back to the bedroom, woke up my husband & showed the test pack result.

Bismillah, Rayyan is going to have a sibling..... ^^

Be good there, nak. This nauseous phase is not pretty. But mommy's sure she can handle it. You'll see, pumpkin ^^

The fetus, 6 weeks (Sept 19th)
Btw, I'm trying to regularly check the fetus up in RSIA Tambak, Manggarai. According to many mommies in many motherhood mailing list, this hospital has good reputation in some important things for me:

1. Apply the Early latch-on
2. Breastfeed millitant obgyns, pediatricians, midwives & nurses
3. Apply the R.U.M
4. Apply the rooming-in
5. Does not promote any formula milk to newly moms
6. Affordable cost

Just like what I'm looking for. I hope this hospital is as good as what those moms talk about.
