Phimosis – decision

*alamak forgot to post. back dated*

OK after reading from the various internet source i’m quite dizzy…but we have some decision. 1stly baby’s penis not suppose to be fully retract until 3yrs old, or some other website suggest 5yrs old. So we decided to wait… just need to deal properly with his infection.

2ndly his birdie was ok the next day already.. didn’t even need antibiotic. He could pee without pain… well i guess there shouldn’t be much to worry about. Afterall Ha-B said, most of his nephew is having this problem during their childhood. But not from my family. Maybe this is another of the thing he inherit from the “phang” ? ah well… maybe it’s the genes… just like the sensitive skin.

Anyway decided to wait for the next infection (hopefully no need and no more) then we’ll visit the government and see what they have to say. somehow the government will have more experience as they had seen many and they won’t make a woohaa out of nothing compare to private who want to earn $$ but skill wise.. i’ll still trust the private..

Phimosis

Went to see doc this morning. His birdie is not so swollen or as red as yesterday. It was horrible ytd nite.. maroon nearly purple and it was as huge as my pointer! no kidding… but anyway i still bring him to the doc.. doc conclude that he might be having this phimosis condition which is the foreskin is too tight to be pull all the way back. Baby should be able to pull all the way back rite? She didn’t actually jump to conclusion-lah. there’s a few symptom like ballooning during urine.. and pain (but i think the pain is due to infection) But then again i’m also wondering issit because of this everytime ask him to go pee he’ll say “no no” – due to pain?

This condition happens to almost every baby boys (that’s what i read) but worsen there will be infection and pass which is happening to jdric. however it will be gone when they are around 5yrs old for some boys but some may worsen due to scarring and later it will be more difficult for them to pee or erection which will cause pain. Further infection will caused him scared of pee and later have urinary infections or bladder infections.

I’m trying to record his penis during pee to show it to the surgeon so that he can give me more confirmation whether is really ballooning or i misinterpret. what are the steps we need to take, surgery or not. Correction surgery (minor) or circumcise (major)

Doc prescript antibiotic but i didn’t gv him, since it’s not so swollen so i’m hoping it can cure itself. i don’t really like to feed him with medicine. today he dare not pee, only few drops per pee or maybe i’m trying to video him so his attention got diverted?

Haiz.. tat’s y when he was a baby i’d already told Ha-b that his urine hole is pin hole size. betul-betul ada masalah now…but i’m still wondering issit his pin hole size causing the ballooning during pee? or the infection caused scarring then caused ballooning? or issit ballooning then infection? aiyah.. i dunno la.. see surgeon is the best.

What wonderful day

Jdric hv this penis infection again..  i relaly do not know why it happen all the time. it’s like every quarter got to have it once. this time i relaly do now know what’s the reason.. maybe coz i pull up the skin too much to wash? (doc told me not necessary to do it) but everyone else in the family – old ppl say NEED. This time penis is as big as his big toe (biggest ever) :S kesian.. and this time he is in pain… so i decided to bring him to the doc and start the antibiotic session… i bathe him and prepare him, promise i’ll bring him for “kai kai” – BUT TODAY IS SUNDAY – no open shop! We get the from the car and decided to wait until tomorrow.

He was disappointed.. from the look of his poor face… i feel bad too. So i decided to just bring him to old JJ and hang around at the theme park and get my Coffee Bean blended.

1st stop was Popular book store because there was this huge sale going around. 😛 Bring him to the kids session and there were many kids around there sitting on the floor reading. So my “book worm” son also follow-lah. He took 1 book, and sit on the floor. Take a book – sit on the floor – look at the pictures – put back the book – take another book. He was going tru this routine for more than 10times i think.. then he spotted this little pretty girl. He took his book and sit beside her. He tries to talk to her! I told him  not to disturb jie jie so he wave and told her goodbye. ah~~ sweet. Courting at this young age.. so he went back his original spot and repeat the whole process. How i drag, trick, talk, threaten him to leave he refuse. Nearly make a big fuss… luckily there’s this boy who is screaming at his sister, so i told Jdric faster go. The kor kor scold you already. He obediently allow me to carry him out *phew*

As we were walking to our 2nd destination, he refuse to let me hold his hand! So geram.. and the “monkey friend” is not working anymore because he end up lying on the floor the more i drag him. *argh* So i need to carry him all the way to the theme park…reaching there.. ah~~ he run wild again. i literally followed him into every single ‘car’ climbing up and down.. running around.. he even play with the arcade drum! i think we spend like 30mins there. So in the end… i carried him and move far far away from there. Then i put him down to walk on his own but.. he manage to run back to the park and he can recognize the way! So i told him, we’ll look for a drum at the toys department to buy. obviously i’m not serious.

quickly hop into the elevator for my 3rd destination – Coffee Bean! long queue… arnd 4-5 ppl in front of me. So i got to carry him while q-ing. tiring.. then he pointed to me he wants the cake.. i was ignoring him at 1st but he keep repeating “appy” “appy” (stands for happy which means cakes to him – because everytime there’s a cake, we’ll sing happy birthday song) he also told me that he’ll “wait”. seeing this, i also soft hearted dy, my boy is waiting for his “appy”. So end up… 1 Green tea blended for Mboy and 1 “appy” for Jboy. Damage : RM19 (luckily i hv Citibank card which entitle for 20% discount) Putting him alone in the bb seat while i fetch the cake and drink. I feel like a “siu lai lai” hahaha… 1st time in this pregnancy tat i’m able to sit in a cafe enjoying my drinks … *bliss* i used to sit and lepak at starbuck, kepong JJ but now i doubt i can do tat coz ha-b is too tied up. anyway this little boy is sooo cute, i gv him 1 bite of the cake but he refuse to eat.. he keeps clapping his hand. ( he wants to sing the happy birthday song 1st! ) so end up i got to sing him the song and then gv him a bite. then i told him to take a photo b4 we eat another bite but he keeps staring at cake. so cannot take a decent photo of him looking at the camera. 😦 i think he took 2/3 of the cake.

then we continue to lepak, i manage to grab a trolley and let him hv the remaining of my blended. also occupied him with my phone. wanted to get some better looking maternity pant as mine already abit faded. mana tau.. it coz RM40 for the pants that the quality is not as good as the 1 i’m wearing. bo kam wan.. better dun buy.. i’ll DIY.

3hrs in old JJ, decided to go home… alamak forgot to pay parking ticket. so i did something which i used to scold other ppl last time. i lock my son in the car in his car seat but of course with window open. quickly pay my ticket and get back to the car. *shy*

Today is a day that i feel that i should appreciate because in future with 2 kids and locked up in a house with no car, i don’t think i’ll be able to enjoy days like this. should do it more often… 😀

Shopping with Jboy

Today mom and dad went to KL – 1 day trip

i decided to bring Jboy for some shopping. He was very happy and excited knowing we’re going out. He wore his own shoe climb into his car seat. I think he had been lock-up for too long at home. muahahha…. our days are not like last time where we go out almost everyday.

1st stop is the craft shop  to get somethings for MY’s wedding preparation. Jboy is still fresh so there’s not much problem. I also bought some bread for him to munch in the car. Make him milk to occupied some of this time in the car. I also get to drink my longan cold drinks. *yum* been such a long long time…

2nd stop is TESCO to grab the diapers on sale – Huggies Dry Comfort (red colour) RM29.89 with free 6 pcs. SO for XL is around RM0.50 per pcs. Price is comparable to PetPet which is normally after discount RM29.  But somehow i find PetPet size is bigger and Jdric can still manage to wear L size. TOo bad they don’t have discount.

I wanted to go JJ to join in the fun of JJ day.. since everybody is working and i’m not. Taking this precious opportunity.. but.. too bad i bought alot of dairy stuff and will turn sour if left it in the heat. So juz head back home..

On the way back, he wasn’t noisy but was restless. So i gave him my phone for entertainment. 5mins later.. he doze off… hah.. i can now drive peacefully without worrying he’ll make noise.

It’s been a long time

Haven’t been updating anything… but there’s lots of interesting things happening…

Partly because my arms is falling apart… i think it happen when there’s 1 nite, my son cried i think due to nitemare (but it happen all the time). So in order to calm him i need to carry him up, close to my body like a baby and he’ll turn his head over to my body and go back to sleep. So there’s this 1 nite, i’m tired and lazy and sleepy.. so i simply carry him and i think i tear or injured something inside.

Next day, my neck cannot turn, my arm and shoulder cannot lift and my back muscle is pulling like cramps. My aunt help me to massage. The back muscle was relax abit but the neck and arm still same. Luckily tat week i’m up to KL and hubby, mil and sil were helping me on Jdric. I went for acupuncture and cupping. That nite i was not able to sleep because my arm muscle were harden like cramps. Midnite i woke a few times due to pain. I cannot tahan anymore so i decided to go for painkiller. I went to see doc but she told me wasn’t able to prescript me anything because i’m pregnant. Even yoko-yoko also not recommended. But i dun care. Only yoko-yoko can gv me the burning and sting-ee feeling until i forgot the pain.

Chinese sinse told me it’s wind coz i bathe too late. Mat salleh doc told me i strain and used too much of my right arm.

Today it’s arnd 2 wk. I’m feeling much better.. altho it’s still painful but it’s bearable. At least i don’t need the wall to help me wear my bra anymore. I can fall asleep with the right position.  Being a mother is so painful~~

Baby M *updates*

I realise that during my 1st pregnancy  i didn’t do any updates on the baby or me!  So let me start now and hoping my 3rd pregnancy (if financially we’re stable and God entrusted me again) i can refer too

Weeks 26:

My weight : 82kg (put on 12-14kg )

Baby weight : ~1kg (ops huge baby again)

I remember at this stage i was 6kg-8kg extra only during my 1st preg. During my 1st trimester i lost 2kg lagi tu~~~ 😦

Anyway everything is fine, baby face wasn’t too clear but doc said he hv normal “feature”. Fingers still not able to count because he was fist-ing all the time. Umbilical cord was in safe position for now… The baby position is not in the best position for 4D scan but nvmd la, Jdric also didn’t had 4D coz he was facing backward all the time. He caught me by surprise when i 1st saw him.. sooo Ha-B look.  The scene is still very fresh in my head.. *sweeet*

===================

Many friends warn me about baby M’s name. If you google the name will be for someone who is rebellious, even potentially disruptive,policies or ideas. Sound bad rite? All because this Maverick didn’t want to brand his cow. But today because of his actions he is someone who exhibits great independence in thought and action. My friend MY even send me an article she is studying in her MBA about Maverick’s genius act!!

The below is what i’d search online…

34 Rules for Maverick Entrepreneurs

1. It’s got to be a BIG idea that you, your team and your customers can “get” in seconds.
2. Strive to create 10x – 100x in value for any price you charge. Your rewards are always proportionate to the value you provide.
3. You must charge a premium price so you have a large margin to provide an extraordinary value & experience.
4. Provide a ‘Reason Why’ customers should do business with you and pay you a premium.
5. Get paid before you deliver your product or service. And when possible figure out how to create recurring revenue from transactions.
6. You get to make the rules for your business. Don’t let industry norms dictate how you’ll work or who you’ll work with.
7. Create your business around your life instead of settling for your life around your business.
8. Consistently and constantly force yourself to focus on the ‘critically few’ proactive activities that produce exponential results. Don’t get caught up in minutia & bullshit.
9. Seek to minimize start-up risk but have maximum upside potential.
10. Get your idea out there as fast as possible even if it’s not quite ready by setting must-hit deadlines. Let the market tell you if you have a winner or not. If not – move on and fail forward fast! If it’s got potential – then you can make it better.
11. Find partners and team members who are strong where you are weak and appreciate being paid on results.
12. Your reputation always counts. Honor your obligations and agreements.
13. Never, ever get paid based on hours worked.
14. Leverage your marketing activities exponentially by using direct response methods and testing.
15. Measure and track your marketing so you know what’s working and what’s not.
16. Bootstrap. Having too much capital leads to incredible waste and doing things using conventional means.
17. Your partners and employees actions are their true core – not what they tell you.
18. Keep asking the right questions to come up with innovative solutions. “How?”, “What?”, “Where?”, “Who Else?” & “Why?” open up possibilities.
19. You’ll never have a perfect business and you’ll never be totally “done”. Deal with it.
20. Focus most of your time on your core strengths and less time working in areas you suck at.
21. Make it easier for customers to buy by taking away the risk of the transaction by guaranteeing what you do in a meaningful way.
22. Always have something else to sell (via upsell, cross-sell, follow-up offer, etc) whenever a transaction takes place. The hottest buyer in the world is one who just gave you money.
23. Always go back to your existing customers with exceptional offers and reasons they should give you more money. It’s 5x less expensive to sell to happy customers than go find new ones.
24. However the flip side is – fire your most annoying customers. They’ll be replaced with the right ones.
25. The marketplace and competitors are always trying to beat you down to a commodity. Don’t let that happen.
26. Develop and build your business’s personality that stands out. People want to buy from people.
27. Create your own category so you can be first in the consumer’s mind.
28. Go the opposite direction competitors are headed – you’ll stand out.
29. Mastermind and collaborate with other smart entrepreneurs if they have futures that are even bigger than their present.
30. Celebrate your victories. It’s too easy to simply move on to your next goal without acknowledging and appreciating the ‘win’.
31. Make your business AND doing business with you FUN!
32. Do the unexpected before and after anything goes wrong so customers are compelled to ‘share your story’.
33. Get a life! Business and making money are important but your life is the sum total of your experiences. Go out and create experiences & adventures so you can come back renewed and inspired for your next big thing.
34. Give back! Commit to taking a % of your company’s sales and make a difference. It this becomes a habit like brushing your teeth pretty soon the big checks with lots of zeros won’t be scary to write. If you think you can’t donate a percentage of your sales simply raise your price.

where is my home?

Ha-B had moved up for more than a month. I’d been a nomad for more than a month. It’s so tiring… 1 week Selayang, 2 weeks Melaka.. some other times during weekend own home house. (yeah so pathetic me that i don’t have a home) Is so f*cking tiring. Even tho the sounds of it may be fun!

Many are telling me..wow.. this is great, at least you get to stay with your mom. Wow.. it’s great that there’s someone to take care of you now that you’re pregnant.. Wow.. Mil can help out with the lil monster when i’m back in Selayang. But heck NO! I’m always carrying 3 huge bags with me everywhere i go. 1 for the luggage… (yes – i don’t keep my clothe in my mom house because there’s no space. What??!! more than 3000sq ft also no space? Yaloh… my mom’s house is all occupied by her rubbish) 2nd bag is the baby bag that inclusive of all the bottles etc .. 3rd bag is the food aka milk bag. So if today, now u ask me to move to ur house.. or run away from home. i’m able to do that without even need to pack my things. =D

Being in my situation now… i really can’t complain much. No money, no car.. a place, a roof to shelter me.. and both parent are sedekah-ing me. Yes – i know i sounds very pathetic. But i really want to stay comfortably in my own place call HOME!

Showing His Love

I’d been very worried about sibling rivalry… and jealousy when Maverick is out next time. I’d been telling Jdric that he is kor kor. This is di di. It’s his baby.. i also show him many many pictures of babies and bring him along whenever i’m visiting baby.. in fact he had been “falling” in love with babies… ever since.

A few times, he will open my shirt and then kiss my tummy out of sudden. Yesterday he did it again. Normally i will sleep facing the other side – not facing him because i’m afraid tat he’ll kick my stomach. After i off the light getting ready to bed, he call me.. mama.. then pull me over to face him. Then he open my shirt and caress my tummy calling baby. Then he kiss my tummy and give baby (my tummy) his fav Elmo. I was like sooo melted.. how i wish when the lil is out 3 mths later he’ll also be so sweet.

There’s another time we visit my lil niece, he was so sweet standing there looking at the baby. Sayang the baby… and i could feel that he love the baby.

BUT there’s also another time when, when i visits my friend, he show some jealousy. When we reach, he was very gentle and sayang the baby. But i carry the baby, he call me to carry and push the baby away! So he likes baby but don’t let me carry? sei fo..
