Not every Cesarean birth experience is negative, My Birth Story.

To be honest, I wasn’t going to share my birth experience. But it seems like anyone who congratulated me for the birth never missed to ask how my labor was. And I don’t think I’ll be able to repeat telling it 1000x lol, so let’s just put it here once for all 🙂 Fact : This is the 5th attempt on typing this story with one hand while breastfeeding Naya lol *mum life So if you’re following me on Instagram you would probably think I was going to have an all natural hypnobirth gentle birth water birth and all that stuff with my baby. You’re right, I was really aiming to do that. I wanted and planned for a gentle water birth in my hospital (Al Zahra Hospital) I mean look at the facilities they provided, I would be insane not wanting this for my birth lol. I joined a gentle birth class when I was in Indonesia, then followed with a daily natural birth binge watching on youtube LOL, stuffed my brain with articles, …

Best Series to watch this month!

This is us The story is about family, humanity, love, and pain is, in the end, really a story about us. We can definitely relate ourselves to at least one of character in this series. Also it just leaves me feeling good every time i finished an episode. 3. Big little lies First reason that attracts me to this series, is the cast. Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz, Adam Scott, and Alexander Skarsgard. I’ve never felt more excited to start a new series, hahah. There is only one season, and it’s totally addictive, i wish they would produce …

How we finally got pregnant

We’ve been married for about 1 and a half year now, and I’m not gonna lie I wanted to have a baby right after we got married. Although I wasn’t really putting my mind on it, I know if all of sudden I’m pregnant, I was ready and my husband would be happy too. Point is we did not plan to not have a baby, and were just letting it come naturally. First, we were living in Jakarta, then Singapore and now we’re settling in Dubai. It was only until we stay in Dubai that I start having these common question ” why am I still not pregnant yet?’ Although my husband has always been very optimistic reminding me that it will happen at the right time, I convinced my husband to see a doctor. So we went to a fertility centre to get both checked, short story we are both healthy and not showing any abnormality that will stop us from conceiving, but fertility center in Dubai was beyond expensive, that was the only down …
