Alhamdulilah, reached my week 23.
Belly is looking rounder & rounder. People already notice that Im pregnant, offering me seats in the train for ONCE. A malay makcik.Thank You.And the rest typical ugly Singaporean.Heh!
And of course more & more stretch marks yo at belly & breasts.ho ho welcome babey!
Baby started to move more & more too. Probably turning & stretching in there.happening eh!
Read up online and found that by now, baby is becoming more coordinated as muscles develop and strength increases. Of course his movement will build muscle, strengthen bones and improve his motor skills.
His eyelids, eyebrows and fingernails are developing too. And organs are developing to perform their particular functions.
By now, baby starts to build an immune system to act as natural defense against infection.In addition, he will begin to produce and store fatty tissues to produce body heat and keep warm. This fatty layer (called brown fat) starts to buildup on different parts of the body, and continues to do so until he is born. The skin is growing and is protected from the amniotic fluid by a waxy layer (called Vernix) Until he develops more fat under the skin, it will remain red and wrinkly. His body is still covered with a fine layer of hair. His teeth have been formed and are waiting in the gums. He can now taste and can tell the difference between sweet and bitter. 🙂
And the frequent urine experience must be due to the growth of uterus, putting more pressure on the bladder. At one point, I cant hold it man. go figure!
Yesterday night was worst 4x within 1 hr.
Not forgetting the frequent legs cramp, body aching experience too. Meragam betul!
I had to wake Boy up for 3x to massage me & helped me to put my leg up. And the tossing & turning, trying to sleep at my best comfortable position, yes sleeping on my left side for now only.
Boy have been helpful & patience indeed throughout the pregnancy. Never fail to response to my whiny needs lol.
Thanks dear.sayang you!
Beside the above, constipation greeted me too. For my 1st trimester, I had no problem at all.Everyday sure must let go. Since last week, wah piang, manyak susah lor! Must always remind myself to have my daily watermelon juices lah.
Since the day, Baby started fluterring & moving, I have been talking to him alot almost everything lah. The more you talk to him, the more familiar he will be with our voice. Am I right mummy out there?
Letting him listen to Al-Quran,Yasin/Kursi surah from my iphone helps too.Kasi dia relax.
He is my new bestfriend.
Boy always reminds me, the first madrassah for a child is the MOTHER who should try their level best to raise a pious child. The MOTHER’s influence on the child is far greater than that of the father.
“kalau mak nya senget, anak pon senget..”
Truly, it is up to the MOTHER to be the best example for their child. A child picks up every single thing. Even the babies.We might think that they are small so they do not understand , but they register every single thing in their little tiny brains. Then when they get older and able to talk, everything that was stored, is shown to us by words and actions.
May ALLAH make all of us MOTHER/MOTHER to be, a good role model for our children, INSYALLAH.
Soon we will be blessed with a son, InsyaAllah.
Boy has been rather the enthusiastic one for finding names for our baby.
Probably because, he is the very particular one about the meaning and origins.
Im always the sembarang one, asal sedap dan ada meaning oklah! You choose lah..Ikut cakap suami…hurhur
From the beginning, boy cuma fikirkan nama girl aje. Actually, he would love to have a baby girl.awww….
Yeess, Baby H in his mind.
But for now, he has to overhaul the names.hehehe
It would be nice if a girl, we would like to start calling her Baby H (his name Hussni mah), and for a boy, Baby L (my name Lydia right).
So I did my part ( nak Baby L for my son) to find a list of names that have pleasant and beautiful meaning just like our Prophet (SAW) did.
People name their children to distinguish them from others. The baby must be named on the seventh day. According to a Hadith a child must be named promptly on birth. The baby name must be meaningful. “You will be called by your name on the day of judgment” this is another reason why it is important to chose a baby name with good meaning. The prophet (PBUH) was very particular about it and he always changed names that were derogatory. An example is that he changed Aasiyah (disobedient) into Jameelah (beautiful).
A baby must not be given the name of Allah unless it is compounded with Allah. According to a Hadith the worst of men on the day of judgement will be one who is called Shahinshah. only Allah Ta’ala is king of kings or Shahinshah; Kingdom belongs to him alone
Further parents must make sure that the baby names they select signify servitude to Allah alone and to no one else. They must not append bondage even to the name Nabi. Names that reflect love or romance must not be used either. The Prophet has suggested names of the Prophets or Abdullah and Abdur Rahman. He has said,
“Keep the names of the noble Prophets, Allah loves most the names Abdullah and Abdur Rahman. The most truthful names are Harith and Humam, while the most disliked are Harb and Murrah (war and bitter).”
Please note that most of the baby names and meanings listed on Muslim Baby Names and Meanings have been added to the database by our users from all over the globe. Therefore Muslim Baby Names and Meanings can not guarantee the accuracy of the baby names and meanings listed on the site.
We highly recommend that before you take any decision on naming your baby, you should first verify the baby boys names and baby girl names and their meanings found on the site with the Imam at your local mosque.

I managed to list errrr 2 names only for Baby.
For few days, we have been whatsapp-ing & sms-ing each other;
“How abt baby L H, how abt Baby H?”
“Will people mispronounce?”
“You write the name on a paper, ask someone to pronounce.”
“Have you try the Baby L test?’
And, he suggested Baby A Bin Hussni.
“Hello? Baby A Bin Hussni ok or not?”
I suggested putting 2 names, Baby L A Bin Hussni.
Macam kilat dia replied, ” No 2 names, just a single name!”
He was adviced to put a single name so we will not be confused on what to call him.
Alaaaaa boy boleh lah 2 names……
As he touched & rubbed my belly saying, “Baby A, baby A….baby A ok…”(bersungguh-sungguh betul!)
Oklah Boy, Baby A baby A lah…..Alhamdulilah.
Errr, Can I have two name pls…..Baby L A?
“You want it….then you find out if its ok…..” hurhur
InsyaAllah, before making our decision, we will definitely verify first with the correct sources.
Equally entertaining & stressful man!
Amazing feeling to see belly growing.
fluttering & growing belly, its such an amazing feeling, Alhamdulilah.
Woke up & headed towards the kitchen.
Boy was in the room and he smsed me “Open the freezer”
And look what I found!
Thank you Boy!
Ahhh for coming home late last night from his impromptu JB trip.
Well that’s sweet of you indeed.
Metup Boy straight at ADC, KKH at 4pm just now for my Week 20 Detailed scan.
Glad that he rushed from his workplace just in time to accompany me for the scan.
The sonographer told us its gonna be 99% BOY, Alhamdulilah.
During the scan, Boy could see the whole scrotum and “it’s cute manhood!” LOL
I managed to see a long thingy pointed out only! LOL
The Indian sonographer did not talked so much, she talked mostly to herself.LOL
I did asked her alot of question.
“Thats his leg, hand, heart, etc etc….’
Took her about 20 mins, Then she instructed us to pass the results & the scan pics to Dr Loh where I met him at TPS.
From the detailed scan results, Baby boy is growing well & healthy as per Dr Loh, and he is at an average size. We didnt take note of the measurement then of baby’s length. Too excited looking at baby’s movement perhaps.
And good news for me, i dont gain weight.
(cant afford to gain also, not good, overweight already mah!)
And he passed me a letter of Air Travel During Pregnancy, stating found no increased risk for air travel till 15th Aug.
Thanks Allah for everything, Im halfway through the mark, Pray for a smooth journey till my delivery. Amin.
