When talking about pregnancy, food is one important element. People keep saying “perempuan mengandung suka mengidam benda pelik2″
Well…I beg to differ. I’ve been through it twice and it is actually more to try to get food that I can eat rather than mengidam. Both of my pregnancy give me a tough time in choosing food. I’m too picky and I can’t eat the same food within short period. For example, if pagi ni breakfast nasi lemak, tomorrow I cannot take nasi lemak lagi. Kalau tk pregnant, selera jer nk bedal nasi lemak hari2 kan? Another example, if today’s food ada leftover and simpan dalam fridge dengan niat esok nk panaskan utk makan semula, boleh la lupakan sahaja because I won’t be able to eat it. Takkan ada selera punyeeee.
And because of that I need to stay with my mom till now. Sometimes my mom also get detested with my appetite. Sorry mom, it wasn’t me. Me-myself also kinda tired and fed up and can’t wait to end this soon. Emak pon dh pening nk fikir apa nk masak setiap hari. Lucky I love kampung dish. So, things aren’t so bad here compared to when I’m in PJ. At least there are few dishes that I can eat repetitively with a mountain of appetite. And another good thing, my mom can bake, so every now and then I get to eat homemade cakes, buns, cookies and traditional kuih/dessert. Like pengat and bubur kacang. Very setapppppp ok.
Oh ya, and if I force myself to eat something that I don’t want to eat for the sake of nk alas perut (mcm org selalu kata…ala makan lah sket alas perut…kadang-kadang I rasa cam menjerit tau..) , I won’t be able to “feel” the food let alone to feel filling. Mmg tetap akan rasa lapar walaupon makan banyak. Mengada? Yes I know. But bukan dibuat-buat ok. I know the different between real and mengada-mengada. Sbb, yg mengada-mengada tu I selalu gak buat masa dengan husband lah. Kalau dengan orang lain, mahu kene makan pelempang. Hihihi.
On similar note, still about food….I ni masa pregnant gila banyak angin. Was being informed by doctor that it was because food moving very slow during pregnancy, so resulted in lots of gas produce. In my case I kept burping and still burping till now at 7 months (mind you during my first pregnancy it prolonged till I labor). Ini bukan sekadar sendawa biasa2 tau, this kind of sendawa bring all the foods from inside your tummy up to your throat or mouth. And you will be able to “taste” the food that you have eaten 5-6 hours ago. Totally yucks ok! Imagine kalau I makan durian? Wohooooo, gila geli kalau sendawa berbau and berasa durian. EUwwwwww.
Yesterday I burped, till foods tersembur keluar from my mouth. How’s that? I hate it, but I just had to live with it, for another 2 months. Everything for my baby….kenalah sanggup dan berkorban. And there are times when certain foods can contribute to lots of gas, which resulting in non-stop burping like horn keretapi. Burp..burpp..burpp..burppp. Shessssh. Hari tu my mom brought back lots of pulut kuning with rendang from relative’s kenduri. I mmg teringin nk rendang and makan dgn sangat banyak. But alhamdullilah angin biasa-biasa sahaja. Few days later, my dad brought back berkat from kenduri, ada rendang juga, packed in a small plastic bag, kecik jer. I ate it lah, sbb kali ni ada sambal ikan bilis pula. Dah nama hantu pulut, haruslah makan kan. Sejurus habis tu jer, mak oi angin bertubi2 ok. Till I senak and lemas. Terbaring tk dapat nk buat apa-apa sangat. Could it be different type of pulut cause different amount of gas? I wonder……..
Now, kinda pening to think about food for 2-3 weeks before my due date, coz I’ll be staying with husband in PJ masa tu, since nk kene get ready for labor kan. So, I cannot stay with my mom sbb hospital bersalin kt PJ. Heee. Apalah aku nk makan masa tu nnt? Haihhhh. I need to eat a lot of food, sbb masa pregnant Ichiro, sampai ke akhirnya tk boleh nk makan sangat and takder tenaga nk push. Maybe I nk mintak my mom buat kan bekal lauk kampung for me yg can tahan for 3 weeks. Antara lauk yg I have in mind are lauk sambal daun kayu masak tempoyak and sambal tumbuk lada kering ikan bilis. Lauk ni mmg boleh makan hari2 tanpa jelak. U all ada any suggestion utk any kind of food yg I bleh simpan utk bekalan 3 minggu tu?
