Different Kinds of Life Stage : Baby #2




There are so many different kinds of life stage & kinds of experience in the past 3 years. Not everything has to be shared & some things should be wait for little while before being shared.


And i think it’s a good time to share my baby #2 pregnancy update with our happiness :)


————————


Going a little backward, the end year of 2018 will be of the year that incredibly memorable : after waiting for almost 3 years, I went from being a wife into being a mom of a beautiful girl, Baby #1 :’)


We found out that I was pregnant Baby #2 in February on this year. 2 months after Diba’s second birthday. My husband & I met The Obgyn when my pregnancy into 7 weeks. The Doctor does an ultrasound to make sure that I’m pregnant & giving me Vitamin to make sure the baby growing well. 


I remember we are being so excited but i also remember it’s going to get harder for surviving day by day. Happy or moody most of the time is my friend. It also kept me busy -taking care Diba who were potty training- and many ‘surprises’ I meet everyday. My daily life more dynamic :’)


Oh well, I just finished Belly Laughs by Jenny McCarty. It’s not an educational short read for pregnancy, actually. Just for stress free. Because she covers her story with laugh-out-loud funny :))))


And I’m going this third trimester with Baby #2 on this FUN FACT : 

• How Far Along : currently 36 weeks 

• Due Date : End of October or The Beginning of Nopember

• Size of Baby : 2,8 Kg & I’m not allowed to eat any sugar or sweet food again, my doctor made it clear, lol :))

• Maternity Clothes : All my dress are maxy dress. It’s more than enough to support my ‘new’ body. So i don’t need special maternity clothes :)

• Morning Sickness : Never :)

• Baby Shower : Of course NO :)

• Babymoon : Hunting for good food is my simple babymoon, lol…

• Food Cravings : Ice cream, Dimsum, Pempek, Lotek, Cheese Bread :)))

• Shopping : Only for the newborn super basic needs

• Gender : Surpriseeee :p

• Miss Something : I just miss going to bookstore :’)


On the last check, the fetal heart monitoring & the amniotic fluid level was good, the doctor said.


But maybe, I really can’t share much yet. If all the things are developing good, I’ll definitely share more details when the baby #2 arrive.


So, please sending your positive energy & big prayers to keep me surviving.


Thank you so much :’)

The Signs

 



{Reminder Story}


Kau tau bagaimana rasanya tidak dicintai manusia ?

Seolah kau adalah seseorang yang tidak begitu penting kehadirannya apalagi untuk didengarkan ceritanya 

Semua yang kau lakukan tak memberi arti apa-apa

Tenang & berbahagialah :)

Kau diberi pertanda bahwa kau sedang dijaga

Lihatlah selalu ke dalam Qur’an

Kau akan banyak menemukan ceritamu di sana

Oleh sebab itu, jangan jauh-jauh darinya, ya...

An Introduction : Another Most Beautiful Poetry




Another human being is literally growing inside me :’)

Another most beautiful poetry that Allah SWT ever write :’)

Even if we haven’t met him / her, we know he / she is already being a part of us...

Nothing else matter, you are ‘here’ and we’ll love you forever



Take care, you ~

Living, Loving, and Working at Home (when Quarantine) would be a Breeze for an Introvert


After few months of increasing anxiety about how dangerous Covid-19 was, the trill of staying at home where we safe and able work on assignment, made me believe that quarantine is the same meaning of much-needed break from everyday fast-paced and energetic routine. Especially for him. Even I know he felt a mixture of excitement and worry, lol


Well... from the first month of quarantine on March, the academy announcing the cancellation of all in-person classes, his work responsibility transitioned to an online format. Virtual discussion with his workmate or his students on WA chat, made of recorded lectures and then publish the files on the website. So far, it's easy enough for him.







Me ? I haven't had a problem not leaving the home, lol. So, as usual, I cleaned our pavilion everyday, I make our room feel extra cozy, I've created mini private kitchen behind our room, cooking sometimes, re-read my favorite book, all of tracks on Kenny G were unlocked and of course write on my personal blog.


Home used to be the place where we could recharge energy with solitude activity ~


Until someday, my extroverted friend decided to break the rules and go physically to see me. Tell me about how this pandemic forced her to stay at home for months even she has a beautiful pantry at home. Tell me about how her kids struggling with their online classes even every corner of her home connecting with Wi-Fi. It makes me think, why she need for interaction was so great, when it felt like she'd already found a way to handle it personally (?)


No, no. I'm not anti-social. I'm not shy, lol. I do enjoy social interaction too. Me personally just love to be a small part of a big conversation. Have no trouble to get more experience the outside world, I'm fine with it. Relax in a bookstore or coffee shop, to find a sense of normalcy again. But only by myself. Truly alone. Not in the same way that my extroverted friend do :)


It's made me realized that every personality (introvert, extrovert, or something between them), struggle with anxiety and processes it differently.


Not everyone is privileged enough to stay at home all along day and not everyone know how to best stay in touch with their friend online.  


Maybe an introvert doesn't always stay calm in difficult times and an extrovert could appreciate moment of quarantine.


But I think, living, loving, and working at home still would be a breeze for an Introvert :)

Yang Tak Terbatas Pemaklumannya



Barangkali, sebagianmu masih satu suara, berpikir bahwa sebuah pencapaian adalah apa-apa yang nampak oleh mata, tentang mimpi-mimpi yang jadi nyata. Dari tiada menjadi ada, dari tak dikenal menjadi ternama, dari bawah hingga jadi juara. Sibuk berkembang diri dan meninggi. Hingga sebagian energi habis karena merisaukan perkara-perkara yang tak punya terminal henti.





Sementara gagal, banyak sekali interpretasinya. Masih melajang saat usia dua puluh lima, telah 'melahirkan' banyak hal tapi tak bisa ikut berkontribusi menambah jumlah angka manusia, memilih tak bekerja layaknya mereka di luar sana, tak ikut dalam circle orang-orang yang dianggap penting di dunia nyata.


Manusia seolah dipaksa berkompetisi, menggapai dan memamerkan sesuatu, sampai-sampai jadi candu apresiasi.


Sebetulnya, tak salah memberi kaki pada mimpi, tak salah menjejaki mimpi sesuai inginnya hati. Yang salah adalah ketika manusia kehilangan keyakinan dan kebaikan saat tak hidup dalam keberlebihan.


Kalo sudah begini, jangan-jangan lupa lega hati itu apa.
