It was a lovely Saturday morning when Ibu woke up just as the sun was rising. It was the day that Ibu has counted since the day one I know you are inside my womb. Ibu was excited to meet the gynea as I may see you for the first time.
Baby. That day, Ibu skipped breakfast and I am pretty sure that was the first time you learn to fast. Sorry dear, Ibu thought Ibu has to fast in order to do the scanning, but Ibu was wrong. First time lah dear.
I guess you already know that "eating" is already become Ibu's middle name. Since you are in, foods always inside my bag as to make sure that both of us are well-supplied with food. Papa always mentioned that Ibu loves to use you for some reason but as a matter of fact, Ibu enjoys eating with you and never in my mind Ibu worries about putting on weight. If Ibu didn't keep my stomach full at all times, Ibu became queasy. But, you don't have to worry because Ibu knows what should be on our diet. Do you love all the multivitamins? Fruits? Milks? Chicken? Especially milk and vegetables, well, to tell you the truth dear, Ibu hates milk and always avoid to choose vege as my lauk, but for our benefits, I forced myself to eat it so that you will have enough calcium and vitamins.
But baby, you make me craving for McD's nugget and you should thanks all of your aunties and uncles (Ibu's friends) for brought the nuggets when they visited Ibu. Not only nuggets, Ibu is craving for Pisang Goreng at Jalan J and only yesterday Ibu's managed to grabbed all the pisang goreng. Coincidently, the seller was Auntie Ainaa's friend and your auntie purposely told her friend that Ibu was craving for that pisang. Haiyaa.
Back to the Saturday's morning story, 30 minutes driving to Sambhi Clinic was filled with all the stories inside Ibu's head. Yeah, everyone keeps telling their own version of bleeding which sending me into complete panic, but of course Ibu will always pray the best for you.
When Ibu's entered the scanning room, Ibu has been asked by the nurse to lie down on the bed. Papa gave a big smile to Ibu. When the doctor touched Ibu's tummy with his gadget, Ibu's eyes just glued on the screen, waiting for some words from the doctor. The doctor took a few minutes before showing YOU. Yes, its you. Ibu could see the little "bean" that was growing inside Ibu and its beating heart. Papa took a closer looked to see you and honestly subhanallah. Ibu kept telling the doctor it was amazing and unbelievable. It is miracle when someone is living inside your body.
If only Ibu could swim in my own womb, I will hug you and give you a very first kiss but as stated on paper, it could only be done on 5th July 2006. When the doctor gave the consultation, Ibu realized that Ibu was the only person listening to the doctor while Papa was busy watching you on the screen. Alhamdulillah, the doctor explained that you are fine in my tummy.
Out from the room, Papa gave a kiss on Ibu's forehead, I guess he was so happy to watch his 1cm baby and Ibu remembered when he whispered "Kite taknak bagi die nangis lagi". Yeah, Ibu easily cried even for a small thing. :) Baby, do you know, Papa is kissing you everyday?
Back to Kemensah, I spread your pictures to your aunties and uncles and your Atok. Your Atok (Im not sure what you should call Ibu's father) gave a really big smile when he looked at you. Your Mummy (Ibu's Mama) just has a chance to see you just now as she was in Ipoh during the weekend. Yes, everyone is happy to have you and I am sure when you come to the world, you will shower with all loves from us.
I love you, I love you, I love you.
Oklah, duduk diam-diam dalam perut ibu. Jangan bagi ibu morning sickness. Mari kite same-same break record takde morning sickness, so bile takde kite boleh makan banyak-banyak. Tapi tak mo la nugget lagi, Ibu dah tak leh tengok nugget dah. Pisang ibu boleh terime lagi. Hehe, tau tak pe..
