My First Day Ramadhan
Tup tup arini dah masuk hari ke-2 kita berpuasa. Alhamdulillah, yesterday I managed to berpuasa sampai waktu berbuka. I know it was easy for some of you guys, but not for me. I'll feel tired and sometimes rasa nak pitam especially around 3 to 5pm. And kadang2 bila time berbuka pon dah tak larat nk telan ape2. Alhamdulillah I managed to get thru those times.
This year, is my 3rd year fasting with my beloved hubby and 3rd year also with my lil one (tapi 1st year tu Arsyad still dlm perut mama..hehe). During my pregnancy, I dun have any problem berpuasa. Oooppss~ ade jgk tinggal puasa 4 hari coz sgt2 tak larat sampai tgn pon terketar2, rase mcm dh low blood pressure. Coz of worried about my baby, so I berbuka. What to do kan. But, Alhamdulillah takde la tinggal puasa byk sgt.
And then last year was my 2nd year, and it was much more challenging than the previous year coz I was fully breastfeeding him. He was 9 months old at that time. Alhamdulillah I puasa penuh that year coz I still tak period at that time. At first I thought its gonna be tough to go thru all day long without eating anything. First few days maybe a bit challenging, but then you'll get use to it. Just dun forget to wake up for your sahur, drinks a lot of water during the night and sahur and eat a lot of kurma. It really helps. At that time, my son will ask for milk one in 2 hours time. So, just imagine berapa litre my body needs water.
So this year, baru 2 hari so takle nk ckp sgt. Still challenging with this 1 and 1/2 month old boy. I'm still breastfeeding him and mind you, he still drink a lot of milk coz he doesn't eat much. And, much more tiring coz running here and there playing with him. Alhamdulillah, day one is over. And Alhamdulillah also, I'm able to recite Al-Quran without any interruptions from my boy. He is really behave everytime I wanna perform my solat and recite the Al-Quran. So, harap2 bley khatam at least once in this Ramadhan and hopefully I can perform my tarawikh as well. So far so good.
Being a stay at home mom is quite challenging when it comes to Ramadhan. I still can remember, during my working days few years back, I didn't feel hungry at all (dahla tak sahur) and time flies really fast. Sedar2 dah balik keje, then nak berbuka. Skrg rase mcm lambat je masa berlalu (tahun lepas I rase mcmtu this year tak dah sbb Arsyad dh besar, so byk main2 ngan dia..hehe). But then the thing that I love is, I have lots of time to muhasabah diri, do more Ibadah and I really appreciate the Ramadhan itself. Alhamdulillah, syukur :-)
