Me again, sharing my 2nd childbirth experience.
EDD for BB2 was 23May2009. When I was at37weeks, it was torturing cause I was so heavily pregnant, tiring, lazy and at the same time taking care of a extremely demanding, active 18mths old toddler. My gynae appointment was scheduled on the 8May2009.
Before going for gynae appointment, I have “consulted” with hubby and told him I want to induce labor after week38 should bb still no sign of wanting to come out. I was desperate! So on 8May09, I spoke to doctor, and made appointment for induce labor on 13May (my birhtday) LOL I wanted to share my birthday with my 2nd baby.
On this particular day, I send Manfred back to my mum’s place. Then I told hubby I want to go shopping, eating, and pak tor spree before no2 come. So drop off Manfred, 10am we head to IKEA for shopping. Nothing particular to buy, but just window shop in IKEA. AFter that we did went other places which i couldn’t recall. I recall we had dinner with my families and we got home around 10something. Manfred was very fussy that night cause he has very bad nappy rash plus diarrhea. The rash got worse despite we put him on clothes nappy, apply ointment and wash him right after poop. At 12am, I couldn’t bear seeing Manfred in such agony, hubby and I send him to clinic. Nothing much done by them also, just give us ointment to apply. By the time we were home, it was 1am already. I manage to put Manfred to sleep at last. I shower and going into bed, the clock was showing 1.45am.
Just when I was about to fall asleep, I fell some wetness on my pants. I wasn’t sure if I did pee..I some more ask my hubby did my waterbag broke?My hubby jokingly say “You wet ur pants lar”!! So i just change again and go to bed again.. THEN MORE H2O coming out………….. Then I told my hubby, I wasn’t peeing!!! My water bag did broke liao!!!! Think about it, hubby say i wet pants probably because he didn’t want to go hospital at 2am all the way from klang to cheras. LOL.
My mum was praying downstairs. She ask me to go hospital immediately. I left my hospital bag at my mil place. Luckily I had my admission letter with me in my purse. I showered, shampooed at left klang at 230am. I didn’t inform my in law as it was midnight and I know usually they wake up very early and I could call them first thing in the morning. We admit to pantai cheras again and by 330am, Midwife check me and I was already 6cm dilated.
The contraction was quite intense, but wasn’t regular. It was bearable until 4am, I was in much pain that at last I have to take the Entonox. With the gas, i was able to fall asleep. Hubby also went to my ward room to sleep.( he was able to do so cause I op for single bed room this round. this is to make it more convenient for breastfeeding). At 6somethings, I was wakened by VERY VERY INTENSE PAIN!!!!!!!! midwife check and finally i was 10cm.
I was pushing and I could feel my bb head coming out. The moment baby’s head crown, I keep having the urgency to push. YET midwife told me to “HOLD”!!!!! She told me doctor not here yet, you have to hold, if not after down there tear!! Despite in great pain, I able to hold a short conversation with her.
Lynn: I cannot not push, baby want to come out!!
MW: Dun push! After down there tear!
*Another contraction came*
Lynn: Miss, ARRRRRRRR cannot hold ar!! Baby want to come OUT!!!!!!!!
MW: Cannot!! doctor not yet come.
Lynn: AR? How long can doctor reach? Baby want to come out! I no push also he come out!!!! HOW TO HOLD??!!!!!
MW: If you want to push u push a little lar..
*Another contraction come and this time even more URGE TO PUSH!!*
Lynn: BABY COMING OUT!!!!!!! HOW??!
*Midwife stuck the ENTONOX gas at my face*
MW: U inhale gas lar!!
somehow the gas manage to “reduce” the contraction and I was dizzy…. half asleep… In my half dreamland, I heard the midwife say:” WOW, the gas good ar, so pain also now she fall asleep d”
I was thinking, I can still hear u le miss!!
same things *contraction came, inhale gas, hall asleep* happened for 4-5times.. 5minutes later, gynae finally arrived.
In 2-3 pushes, at 7.17am, Jude was borned 3.25KG. 54cm.
He was 1 day shy to 38weeks. Jude wants to celebrate Mother’s day with mommy….
