p/s: saya agk frust sikit sbb ptg td dpt call dr DEMC. Gynae yg saye salu checkup tu x available plak esok(sbtu), kalo nk induce gk bole tp ngn doc lain(doc laki).. dah discuss with hubby, kitorg induce ari isnin ni..huu lame nyee lg nk tgu isnin.. dr mazita available isnin ni.. kecewa sikit. but as long as my baby aktif kt dlm, takpe la kn.. mane tau dia nk kuar tanpa paksaan sbtu or ahad ni?? ohh..saat2 mcm ni terasa lmbt jam tu bergerakk.. baby z sayang,kuarla cpt..mama & papa x sbr da niii..

ingt kn kalo induce sbtu, bole bersalin ahad..n my hubby bole jadi papa on father's day.. how sweet..tp xpela..nk wat cmne.. mesti ade hikmah di sebalik sesuatu yg berlaku tu kan? =)
