Ceritera Confinement

I have been under confinement for almost two weeks. *sigh* Why sigh? Two words to describe bout confinement are leceh and boring coz need to take care of so many things such as medicines (morning n nite), tungku, bengkung, etc…

But of coz the best part is you don’t have to worry bout work & office even though I still received calls n sms-es from my colleague who is replacing me asking this n that. But, still acceptable la… *wink*

Going to share bout my confinement here… Where I do start ya?

Ok… let’s start with shower since it is the first thing I do every morning. *grin* I shower with air rebusan daun2/kayu2 (sorry, I also dunno what they are! But mom calls it “Rusap”) which imported from KK. And as-to-date, I have yet wash my hair!! Can you imagine the smell and the stickiness?! *faint* (wrote this yesterday and I’ve washed my hair today sbb x tahan! LOL)

Before I proceed, here’s my confinement staff…

A. Tungku (RM14.90)

B. The old folks in Sabah called it “Pecah Darah’. It’s a set of 2 types of pills. Yes, it’s for pecah darah and buang angin. The ‘sin sei’ in KK sure knows it’s for those yang baru beranak. There are 10 mini boxes inside each box. RM18/box. (for 10days)

C. Confinement set – Warisan Afiat Herba (RM79.90)

D. Pati Ikan Haruan (RM32) (6 bottles per box – for nite)

Next, bertungku… During Rayyan’s, my mom just filled in hot water into an empty bottle and I have to ‘roll’ it on my tummy. As for this round, I bought a tungku (refer to item A on above pic). It has to be steamed first and 'tuam' on the tummy while it is still hot. A step to mengecutkan rahim dan memecahkan ketulan darah di dalam rahim spy keluar sebagai darah nifas… I hope I’m giving the correct explanation here! Hee.. ;p

Next, berbengkung… utk mengempiskan perut dan mengembalikan kelangsingan. Hehehe… Glad that I found the Bengkung Zap Balqis while browsing the net. It is so much easy to use compare to my previous bengkung – the traditional type where you need to lilit2...

Firstly, apply the minyak angin (A) on tummy. Wrap tummy with any cloth (B), then wrap with the Barut Berubat (C) and then with the bengkung (D). Bengkung is advisable to be worn for 24hours. Take off only during shower. As for me, I can’t comply with that. So, I only wear it after shower and take it off at nite. Should be ok la kan? *wink*

My tummy with bengkung... yg bakal slim.. ehem ehem..

For breakfast, I had been having a bowl of mi-suah with chicken soup and a cup of nestum for the passed 10days!!! Gheezzz…

And here come the medicine part… For the full set of my confinement product, I bought Warisan Afiat Herba. It consists of 10 items and the Barut Berubat is what I attracted to at the first place (refer bengkung).

 Pic A – medicine taken for the 1st 3 days during confinement. 2 types of Afiat + Pecah darah.

Pic B – medicine taken from the 4th day for a week. 2 types of Afiat + Pecah darah.

Pic C (below A) – I don’t think my throat can accept the pills. In powder foam will be much easier!

Pic D (below B) – The pecah darah! Mcm Pil Chi Ki Tek On kan… *grin*

On the 20th day, I will have to boil the Akar Kayu Afiat… untuk diminum!! Mesti pahit gila!! *roll eyes*

A part of all the above, I also take a teaspoon of black vinegar every morning and nite. Mom says it helps to heal the luka dalaman bhgn bawah… ;p

Phewww… Done! Till then… ^_^

The arrival of NEWBORN

Pls forgive me for neglecting you, my dear blog and readers… So many things had happened to me lately. *sigh* The brain is not well functioning and even the heart is heartless. *double sigh*

Anyway, I’m getting better and ‘recovered’ now and will try my very best to update the blog regularly. *wink + finger-cross*

Well, I have huge storyline for the comeback. Heheheh… As most of you already knew, yess… I have eventually given birth on 14 July 2010. Syukur Alhamdulilah… *grin* Well, my EDD supposed on 26 July 2010. 12 days early! Phewww…

Here’s the journey on that day…


Call for toilet. Somehow the toilet-call is… different?! It was uncontrolled. Macam air paip pula!! Even after my ‘official toilet-business’ is over, air paip still terpasang. Hmm.. at that time, I recalled one of my senior colleague’s story on her delivery experience. Yes.. It was my air ketuban (amniotic fluid)!! But, I don’t feel any pain. When I think it has stopped, quickly, I informed mom bout it. Solution? Of coz la – hospital!

Since the fluid is on & off, I have to wear pad. Had my breakfast too. Hubby was shocked when I woke him up, telling him that we need to go to hospital. He then quickly prepared while I was on the other hand dragging him. Hahaha…


Hubby and I were already at Hospital Bersalin KL, where I gave birth to Rayyan almost 2yrs ago. We were actually considering going to Hospital Ampang for my second delivery. But, ntah la..

Registration process was very slow! Luckily, I was not in pain. Otherwise, suffered!!! The bad news is… in order for hubby to enter the labour room, we must have our marriage cert as a proof! Sh*t!! While I did my registration, hubby went back to get the cert! *sigh* And can you believe that I was still in the midst of registration when hubby got back to the hospital! Damn slow kan?!


Registration done! Since the dilation is only 3cm, I have to admit to the ward first. But the sad part is.. they are no beds vacant!!! We have to stay at the ‘waiting room’… Regretted that we didn’t go the Hospital Ampang. *sigh*


I have to lie down at someone’s bed (that someone has actually gone to the labour room!) for CTG.

Hubby only accompanied me till 9.30am before he was then asked to leave and wait outside. Hmm.. Instead of waiting outside, he went to Sentul, SIL’s house, only 10min drive from hospital. Deep inside, I was actually worried that he is not going to make it this round – witness the arrival of our baby!


Started contraction..


VE – 5cm! Since they are serving lunch meal, nurse advised me to have my lunch first before they send me to the labour room. Bleh jg ooo kan? For energy, I ate the plain rice only. Where got appetite to eat where one is in pain! *roll eyes*

Dengan suara yg tenggelam timbul menahan sakit, updated hubby on the latest status and hoping he can be next to me asap!!


Labour room!! I was totally in pain, trying hard not to push before I should!! It was only 5cm, but I already can feel like wanna ‘poo-poo’! Nope… it was no longer 5cm, it was 8cm!! Goshhh…

The funniest part is… I still can reply my hubby’s sms asking where am I! Even the nurse commented “aik.. sempat lagik??”, when she saw me texting. I told hubby I’m in Labour Room No 9. Hahahahah…

Another sms from hubby… He was not allowed to enter the labour room!! I told them (2 doctors – guys lagik!! Time Rayyan dulu pun guy jg!, 1 midwife, 1 nurse & 1 trainee) bout it and the doc was so nice to go out n called my hubby.


Thank God hubby was already with me! Was so happy n relief to see him. And there goes my delivery attempts… I think I’m better this round. lol


With two attempts, I have finally n safely deliver a baby girl. Syukur Alhamdulilah…

1.25pm – 2.00pm

Needle-work! Sakit gila!!!!!!! Huhuhuhuhu…

If the last round hubby was actually waiting for me until I was ready to be sent to my bed, but not this round. I asked him to go back first n come back with mom n Rayyan during visiting hours.


My baby girl was placed next to me for breastfeeding.


Back to ward. So glad that I already have my own bed!!

Dear friends and family, pls welcome our new member of the family, Princess Ryanna Adrilea, born with 3.03kg… She is now 10days old. ^_^

Ryanna Day 1

Well, that’s bout it… :D Will continue bout my confinement in my next post… *wink*
