4D Scan

Assalamualaikum wbt, fellow readers =)

As promised before, this entry is all about my first experience on 4D scan last week. En Selangor booked an appointment at Klinik Ajwa, Seksyen 7, Shah Alam. We both were extremely excited for this. Couldn’t hardly wait to see the progress of our little one inside.

154bpm tuuuhh! Dup dup dup dup dup.

Firstly, let me give you a simple but clear explanation about the difference between 2D, 3D and 4D scan:

  • A 2D scan displays 2 dimensions - height and width.
  • A 3D scan displays 3 dimensions - height, width and depth.
  • A 4D scan displays 4 dimensions - height, width, depth and movement.

FYI, A 4D scan is also referred to as "Live 3D" as the 4th dimension is time which is the actual movement of the baby.

In Layman terms, 2D is the normal ultrasound scan which we endure during routine checkups. Another scan which you may hear is detailed scan. Basically this is done using the same equipment as ultrasound except it will be done in thorough. Sonographer will look for anomalies during this scan procedure.

There is another scan which done in first trimester for 'Down Syndrome'. This is must for late age mothers because the latter your pregnancy is, the higher the chances is.

Anyhoo, lets go back to last Saturday. We reached there at around 1100 in the morning. Since we already book for an appointment, we didn't have to wait longer to meet our baby inside. Alhamdulillah, everything went well. The Sonographer explained everything in details about our baby progress. The baby is in a good condition, but a bit passive on that day.

Hello, my precious! =)) Mommy and Daddy looking forward to see you this coming October. For the time being, please behave in Mommy’s tummy, okay? =))

We do recommend them as they are able to entertain our question politely. You cannot put a price on this. If you want to do this scan, please book a slot as early as you 22th weeks because 4D scan is become a norm and not many offer the services. For your convenience, this is the contact details for the Klinik Ajwa - 03 5510 6258. For RM160, you will get:-

  • 3D/4D scan
  • A CD containing all of the images & videos
  • 1 printed photo
  • A report

A day before we went for 4D scanning, En Selangor himself did the laundry for all the baby’s stuffs we bought & received before. TQ awak, for helping me with that. I love you sooooo much.


Pink ada, biru pun ada ;p TQ to beloved aunties and uncles yang bagi present masa Baby Shower hari tu =). I'll cover this event on a separate entry.

Most of these stuff were given by my sister, Kekna. So we didn’t have to spend much for our first baby’s preparation. TQ Kekna, Abg Jas and baby Meya =)

heyAwak: Even before being born, you're already taken a big portion of our room as you've taken a big place in our heart.

Pregnancy Cravings

Assalamualaikum wbt.

First and foremost, it’s still not too late for me to wish all muslim out there Eid Mubarak =). May Allah SWT bless you all for your fasts, daily prayers and terawikh in the blessed month of Ramadhan, InsyaAllah.

Back to the topic, most pregnant lady will experience food craving at some point during pregnancy. I’ve heard stories about crazy things that people craved in pregnancy. Alhamdulillah, I’m not one of them. So, here’s the list of simple-and-easy-to-get food I craved since my first day of pregnancy. ;p

1. Kuah Singgang di Restorah Kuah Singgang, Kuala Terengganu.

ikan singgang
En Selangor had to plan a roadtrip to Kuala Terengganu with some of his officemates so that I could eat kuah singgang from Restoran Kuah Singgang there. Here’s the story.

Me, in front of the Kuah Singgang Restoran. 21weeks pregnant.

2. Telur ikan pelotan

Okay, I admit it, this is not really easy to get actually. Hahah~ I bet most of you readers haven’t see this, rite? It’s very hard to get. But I still remember when I was a child, Abah came home with this telur ikan pelotan and asked Mak to cook masak lemak cili padi with this. And I’m pretty sure at that time, it’s a very-easy-to-get thing as Abah macam selalu je bawak balik rumah benda alah ni ;p. So I wonder why sekarang susah sangat nak dapat telur ikan ni even kat pasar-pasar besar sekali pun.

However, TQ to En Selangor who drove very early in the morning all the way from Ampang to Pasar Borong Selayang to get this. Alhamdulillah, we’re lucky.


Specials thanks to MIL for cooking this for me. Telur ikan pelotan masak lemak cili padi+belimbing buluh.

3. Wadai Kiping

This is a famous dessert among Banjarian (Yes, I’m Banjarian), and we called it wadai kiping. But its common name is puteri mandi actually, as told by MIL. As in Banjar style, this is how it looks like. A bit different from puteri mandi, which is came in varies colors sometime and bigger size.

4. Cempedak goreng

Can be found everywhere actually. Tapi sebab tak musim, susah sangat nak dapat masa mengidam cempedak goreng ni. Alhamdulillah, dapat jugak akhirnya =))

heyAwak: I'm 30weeks and 2days pregnant today. Alhamdulillah, everything went well. Will share with you guys about my surprise baby shower and 3D scan experience later =))

Antenatal Class

En Selangor and me had our antenatal class early of this month, July 3rd 2011, hosted by Kelana Jaya Medical Center (KJMC) at Hotel Singgahsana. En Selangor was the one who did the survey about this antenatal class and he finally decided to registered with KJMC, which is near to his office. We were charged RM100 per couple and it was one whole day event, started at 0900am and ended at 0500pm.

It is not compulsory to attend this kind of class since most of the information can be read over the Internet and book. But, if you have some time, why not? This antenatal class can help your husband to aware on some important things during your pregnancy. This class also can help parents-to-be to acquire skills and confidence needed to make birth a positive experience =)

Basically, this antenatal class is about all of these:

  • Care during pregnancy
  • Information about the process of labour and childbirth
  • Advice on relaxation techniques, pain relief choices
  • Massage skills and breathing during labour
  • Exercise during and after pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding and baby bathing technique

Overall, it was an OKAY for me since I’ve excitedly waited for the breastfeeding session to come handled by the midwife assigned to learn more about it, but we only given the basic information about breastfeeding. Moreover, the midwife couldn’t answer participant’s question well. But I enjoyed the exercise part. The physiotherapist will demo the exercise first and she will go to participants one by one to make sure we did it correctly.

After class, we took the opportunity to go shopping for our little one inside. Hohyeahhhh~

heyAwak: This is just a quick update actually, and I only share with you guys the rough idea on what is antenatal class all about. Please search for details info to gain more knowledge about this especially for the first timer =)
