Week 27 update

Week 27 update

Ramadhan is leaving us soon. How time flies! Same goes to my pregnancy and little munchkin is getting bigger and bigger. Alhamdulillah, so far we are still fasting despite the fever and stomachache problem earlier this week. The weekend was a bit tiring for me as we had so much things to do. I even helped out my mother-in-law to bake some cookies and I learnt how to bake Tart Nenas that my husband loves so much. It turned out ok but yeah, a first-timer doing it, there is room for improvement. In sya allah maybe this weekend another round of baking maybe?

Every single week I would receive a notification from my iPhone app about my pregnancy progress. 
It seems that my little munchkin is
  • 14.5 inches long which is approximately around 37cm long - from head to toe
  • My little munchkin is being compared to a size of a cauliflower. I'm having the hardest time comparing a cauliflower to my baby! Yeah, maybe when little munchkin is rolled up in ball.
  • As for the weight, he is approximate about 0.9kg. Little munchkin will be 1 kg in next week! That doesn't really contribute much in my weight gain. It's ok as long as the baby is healthy and kicking away, I am happy!
This week's update : 
  • Craving : Pecan Pie! and I got it at Souka's. Credits to CJ for telling me about it
  • Pain : apart from the stomachache and fever, none.
  • Weight gain : I think in total I gained 12 kg
  • Clothes : been wearing skirts and maxi dresses as they are so comfortable around the waist
  • Mood : emotional as usual
  • Exercise : walking, pelvic tilt, squats, lunges, floor exercise, breathing technique
  • Stretch marks : none so far. alhamdulillah
  • Swelling : none so far. alhamdulillah
  • Baby movements : now, I can detect when is the time my little munchkin likes to move. Sometime, whenever I talk, thinking about him/her, looking through some clothes for him/her, reading up on labour, my little munchkin moves around. I know you are in there my little one. I know you are!
  • Fasting : Alhamdulillah. So far so good.
  • Smell : sensitive to sweet smelling perfume and sometimes, it does give me a headache.
  • Nap : 10-20 minutes during my relaxation exercise.
  • Leg cramps : it's starting! Realised about it during the weekend since I did not take enough calcium and magnesium.
Alhamdulilah, my little munchkin is kicking when Mr. Afif is talking to him and interacting with him. Keep on growing my little munchkin. 

Can't wait for the next update.
