i'm a bit anxious about fasting this time around. i've fasted during my past pregnancies but i was in my third trimester for all 3. this will be the first time i'm fasting during my first trimester. my 'tryouts' were not good. i could not ganti 6 days from last year - that's what happens when you postpone your ganti puasa till the end.

so this year, i've set aside a few days, just in case. just in case i cannot last the whole month.

my first day wasnt too bad. i started the day as usual. did 2 loads of laundry, cleaned the kitchen and prepared breakfast for the boys (nasi and soup kosong je). asyraf and ariff are on medication, so they must eat. amir as usual, would eat what he wanted when he wanted. the three of them were an active bunch after brekkie.

by 11am, i was in twilight zone. i was off my feet from 11am - 3pm. hubby took amir for his nap (or should i say, their naps) mid morning. i was left with asyraf and ariff. asyraf is always ok without amir, so it wasnt too bad.

after lunch and a bottle of milk each (asyraf's drinking less milk now - an entry on that later), both fell asleep. i had a few minutes in front of the telly before amir and hubby came out from tiza's room - amir looking fresh, hubby looking like he wanted to sleep more.

amir was getting bored by himself. hubby and i couldnt find the energy to answer his 1001 questions. it was raining heavily and he couldnt watch disney channel. so he bugged his parents.

after asar i went down to make chicken rice for buka puasa. my timing was off, i thought i could keep myself occupied for an hour or so, but by 530pm i was done. hubby went out for a bit and i sent him an sms at 6, saying "that's it! i reached my limit." so for the next hour i just sat down, not doing anything. i watched hubby dressed the boys for bed and then i watched the clock until 7:20pm.

hubby and i was so tired after buka, we couldnt entertain the boys. we fell asleep before them and hubby only realised when amir woke him up saying "daddy...bear habis dah. amir nak tido".

alhamdulillah...i made it. there were instances where i thought i just cannot tahan anymore, but i was happy i didnt break my fast. hoping i can tahan the whole month.

to all...selamat menyambut bulan Ramadhan.
