my story : confinement

Finally, I am done with the 44 days of confinement. so quick kan? time flies when you are having fun! Yes, fun I mean by I was not expected to do any kind of work or chores, and get extra special treatments, oh feeling like a princess ( cehh ). Special treatments here are:-

Shower: Being prepared hot boiled flowery and daun-daun yg wangi for the first 20 days in the morning for showering. So refreshing..I felt better every each day..

Massage: Got massage treatment from top to toe everyday for 30 days. The oil she used for urut Sue dah la wangi, some kind of sunflower oil, very nice smell. My hubby every day balik kerja said I look glowing.. b'cuz when you get massaged, blood flow bagus throughout your body system, so it shows!

Barut & Stockings: I think most people rasa uncomfortable being barut n to wear socks all the time. But for me, I love to be barut because I can actually see the difference on my belly dah kecik every each day, and I felt so secured and looks slimmer at that time! Socks issue ok cuz its Autumn now anyway, sejuk!!

Yes, I put and ikat my rambut very high n ketat.its for the blood flow..

Supplement Pantang/Set pantang : Nona roguy set had the best reviews of all the pantang set available in the market, from my research lah. So I bought the set which cost me rm360. However, the set Sue tak tersentuh langsung cuz my Nenek already made her best potion for the ubat ubat n oitment, which I found very bagus. The stitches wound cepat je heal with my nenek's ubat. So Sue nak sell my Nona Roguy set (new n bottles unopened) which also comes with bengkung for so much less of the full price. please email me if interested..

Foods: well, this part tak pantang sgt. Reason being Sue BF Adriana, but I refrained myself from air sejuk, seafood - udang,sotong, eggs but other than that, makan like pun pizza lah. I wish to pantang betul betul on foods, but since Sue bukannya ada option but to eat apa yang ada. Maybe if I am in malaysia, and so many people can actually look after me. boleh la demand the right ikan and the right food to eat or not to eat. =( but my appetite dah less,not like when I was pregnant.oh thank God for that..

Mak Long :Neither of our parents are here for baby delivery or pantang - sgt sedih actually, so Najib's aunt came to help me, she is a professional pengurut, she works full time as a masseuse. Sangat thankful to have her at this time. She bukan saja dtg to help urut, but she cooked, and even sampai lipat kain. Sangat caring sayang sgt Adriana.. She was so good urut I lost a lot of kgs, smaller tummy, feeling better everyday..

if anyone is looking for orang urut bersalin or urut normal, or having problem with breastfeeding, where the milk glad dah stuck, or we call it bengkak susu, she can sort that out. I really would like to recommend her. Her name is Faridah, I call her 'mak long'. So anyone is interested to have mak long for urut untuk biasa biasa pun best..please email me at she lives in Kepong, and she can dtg to your place (around Selangor and KL).

Mak Long's number : 016 3807991

So from here I can conclude my pantang only took the pros' n happy happy part not cons' part patutlah FUN. I even heard ada pantang so strict, cannot even mandi, reading, or tgk TV. oh that would be very hard. Sue kluar a few times during pantang...bawa aunty jalan jalan. but that was after day 20, so it wasn't that bad, cuz I kesian sgt my aunt datang for a month, she arrived the exact day Adriana was born, therefore she tak sempat nak tgk Dublin pun..

My weight so far :-

Pre-pregnancy - 48 to 50 kgs
Final stage pregnant - 69kgs ( ive had a HUGE belly and BIG appetite )
Post Labor - 62kgs ( 7 kgs gone - Adriana was 3.54kgs , water n everything else 3.4kgs )
first 2 weeks post labor - 59kgs
Today - 56kgs
my aim at least is to go back to 50kgs by Adriana is 6 months old.

To reach my aim, the to do list -
1. to get the Premium Beauty Corset (PB), i heard they can help you to slim down so much. true? Its damn expensive too, rm2k, if its any good, then boleh beli..
2. Breastfeeding exclusively
3. Eat breakfast, Little and Late Lunch, Skip Dinner
4. Stop eating chocs, and the titbits especially the Cream Caramel.
5. Keep busy with looking after Adriana, house chores and cooking! ( erti kata -exercise )

Any other suggestion to get the pre-pregnancy body..?

This is Adriana today..

Rent - TENS machine - pain relief for Labor

What is TENS machine?

TENS is a drug free, non-invasive pain relief method that is safe to use for both mother and baby. There are no harmful side effects and as a result babies are born more awake and responsive than those whose mothers have used strong drugs for pain relief. The TENS machine emits low frequency electronic impulses through the skin to block the pain signals carried to the brain, thereby reducing pain experienced. It also encourages the brain to produce the bodies own pain killing hormones, called endorphins. TENS machines for childbirth have two currents, or modes of operation. One current is used when resting between contractions and a stronger current is used during a contraction. A hand held boost switch is pressed to change the current between resting and contraction modes.

-description taken from

Since I will be coming home this January, the TENS machine will be available for rent. Based on my experience, I would really recommend this machine to help you during labor for stage 1 and 2..Interested? email me at for further info

p/s: thanks Diah for the idea, if you could promote, lagi cun! =)
