How IT happened...

It's been a week since I gave birth. Although I'm super lazy, I think I better jot it down before I forget.

So on Tuesday night, we went to makan dinner in SS2 with my sister. I jokingly told Jayden " Follow Boh Boh home la. Tonight mamimi wanna go and give birth" and my lil boy walked towards my sister. Then my sister went home and we did our usual stuff. Jayden was watching his tele, hub was using his laptop and I was walking around nesting like a bee. Bzzzzzzzzzz then suddenly I told my husband, " I think we better take a pic of my tummy...." And so we snapped

With Jayden, my tummy was 38inches and weight 72.4kgs. With Justin, my tummy was 40inches and I weight around 69.5kgs.

Right after that, I continued my nesting in CL's/BB's room and suddenly I felt like I was having period and I have a look down there and I saw blood. I asked Big C to confirm for me and then I called my doctor immediately. She asked me to head to the hospital to confirm.

I called my sis to come over and pick J up. We packed HIS bag, lotsa snacks, lotsa dvds/vcds, toys and blablabla and waited for my sis to come. He was all jolly and happy to see my sis + her hub and willingly went into the car and jumped up and down in the car.

Big C changed into the same T-shirt he wore when I delivered Jayden. It was a Nike T shirt I bought for him written "NEVER SURRENDER". *lol* After that we took a very SLOW drive to the hospital. I guess we just wanted some final-Alone time together before we multiply to 4. Haha So as soon as we got there, I got changed and positioned for dilation check. Ouch... very very PAIN! And I was told that I am only 1cm dilated.

My doc came not long after, she did another check (ouch!!!) and found that I'm 4 cm dilated and my water already broke, but I have totally no IDEA that its broken also! However, Baby's head is not pressing on the opening. So gotto wait for baby to go down and dilate more before we can do the actual work.

Contraction came (Yes, now i know how it feels like, pain like how Pearly said it "so pain holy sugar , you just so pain you even forgot your mama". Yeap that's how I felt but I insisted not to have epidural. Want to be champion ma....But Big C kept asking me to take it. And I finally took it at 4.30am.

After that, I had a short nap and woke up with itchiness(side effect of epi) all around my body except my waist down. My right leg totally went coma. Other part is about 95% numb.Big C was sleeping and I entertained myself and had a good laugh in the delivery ward.

Doctor came and checked me again. Woot! Not painful at all cos of the epidural,and she told me that if baby's head is not going down, I gotto go through C-sec.After that I asked Big C to come and talk to my tummy, asked baby Justin to go down so can come out soon and mamimi no need to go through c-sec. I spoke to baby too, asking himto go to the light (err cos the ahem opened up. So i supposed can see a little bit of light?) And then after waiting for a while, I told my husband that i sense something. Weird, since I'm on epidural I'm not supposed to feel anything down there. My gut feeling told myself that baby went down and I'm fully dilated. Big C went and told the nurses to check on me but they said doctor asked them to wait. Luckily doctor came not long after that, she checked me and said that I'm fully dilated and she started to wear apron and gloves and told me "MW (my chinese name), we gotto start pushing okay?".

And I pushed and pushed for 1 hour plus. err actually I dunno whether I am pushing or not but since the doctor and nurses said that I'm doing fine and I'm doing the right thing, so I made the same facial expression :P

Many times, we made jokes and laughed loudly. The nurses laughed and said that they have not seen anyone that can actually give birth and joke at the same time. I kept laughing about my "dead" leg.You won't believe it, while delivering, phone call came in and I can answer the phone call! Haha Since my gynea is a woman, and the nurses are women too, all of them shouted with excitement (you know how noisy it is when a bunch of women get together la..), kept calling my name and that actually reminded me not to pass out cos I was almost out of breath.

Finally, Justin came. He was placed onto my chest. He was very clean (probably I drank lots of coconut juice) and I cried in excitement (like a mad woman). Placenta came out as soon as Justin got out. Just in time. Otherwise Justin will be suffocating inside there without oxygen supply.

As soon as my dr saw him, she said "Aiyoh, exactly like kor kor! and he weight like what we expected around 3.2kg (Justin was 3.12kg)

We spent 2 hours in the delivery ward while I breastfed Justin. He was sucking hard the moment I placed him onto my breast with his eyes opened wide. My doctor called him the "Good Sucker". *lol* And that's my birth story and yeap, I have experienced all 3, show, water bag burst and also contraction. I hope I didn't missed out anything. Let me rest for a while and blog about "When Big J meet Small J" in my next post ya?


A very proud and obviously sleepy dadidi...

  1. sasha,
    What an experience!

    Eh, I am just curious. When you answered your phone, did you tell the person you're giving birth NOW? haha!

    And you joked and laughed with the doctors and nurses! Others would have scream and said, "NO! I DON'T WANNA GIVE BIRTH LIAO!!!" (As seen from TV lah :P)

    Anyway, it's great you share your experience here! Have a good rest, ya!:)
