I am so stressed! Hormonal me, I guess. Lack of sleep. I can't do much during the day since Adam wants to nurse like at 1/2hr, 45minutes, 1hr interval. Ikut suka hati dia lah. Ye lah, dia pun baby lagi kan. Kekadang tu dia nak bergantung je. As if his life depends on my boobs. Yes, in a way since I am his milk supplier kan.
I am on my 14th day. My jiran was surprised the other day to see me outside the house sending off Kakak to school. If only she knows that I already started doing the laundry, cooking, sental kasut sekolah Kakak. Tho I wake up 'on-demand' to feed Adam, I still have another 2 kids to care about and to give me a run around as early as 6a.m. My stitches can still be felt down there tho the cut has partially healed. How do I know? I called for APSH's home nursing service for 7 days. She checks Adam. Gives Adam his bath and gives advise on nutrition and whatnots. She checks my BP and temperature. Checks my rahim dah kecut ke belum (dah kecut tapi perut still buncit okay) and checks my epi. I got 4 stitches the other day. Oh ya, as a proof betapa stressednya saya, ari tu BP saya high tho sepanjang pregnant okay jek.
Berpantang melayu-style doesn't help at all. Lack of nutrition, very little or no fibre at all, little liquid intake, jalan kena tersiput2, no sugar. In short, just take nasi sekepal dengan ikan kering, plus air barang segelas sehari. How's that? To be frank, I feel weak, not energentic, letih and ntah apa-apa lagi lah. Masa I had to stay for 6 days in APSH sbb Adam kena warded, I ate secara sihat. I was still careful with the selection tho. Kiranya saya pick the 'least evil' menu from the list. Walaupun baru bersalin, rasa cam sihat dan segar. Few days back, I got constipated and you all taulah kan berapa attempt kena buat before you can actually 'do' it. Thank God Adam's umbilical cord dah tanggal on 11th day. I started taking jamu then. Nona Roguy Phyto Natal. It works guys. Try lah. With Adam yang nak menetek selalu, dengan maknya yang kurang zat = seksa. My mom kata sebab 'container' kecik je, tu yang susu tak cukup. I know I am not Dolly Parton, but hey, I need some support here. Know what, I'll give up all these pantang-larang. I'm giving myself until next week. Lepas tu makcik nak makan secara sihat. Nak makan nasi banyak-banyak, nak minum air banyak-banyak. Nak makan sayur. Nak makan buah.
I am cranky kan? I feel like running from all these... Jangan makcik meroyan sudah..
Oh, btw, I am going balik kampung esok. Kakak cuti sekolah (Iman cuti bersalin jugak, dah berzaman tak pegi tadika) so dia nak spend sometime kat kampung. Will be back next week. I won't be able to read mails or to blog sbb I don't plan to carry my laptop along. Apa2 hal, SMS me ok.
