So how did yours started?

Since I was induced during J's time, I have no idea what is the feeling of water bag bursting at home, or sudden contraction or bleeding. In fact I forgot how izit like to have contractions. I remember that I was alone (Big C went home to do dunnno what) and I was walking up and down in the room, shouting for the nurse to give me jab or whatever to ease the pain. And then my aunt came, I don't know how the heck she managed to convince the nurse to let her into the room, and then she complaint and complaint about my grandma. So imagine I was dealing with the pain (which I forgot how it feels like) and I gotto listen to ppl complaining about someone else.

So anyway, I have been asking around - How izit like when You get contraction? What is the feeling like? Some ppl said like wanna pangsai feeling. Some ppl said, backache. Can anyone tell me more?

And then, how many of you guys had contraction first? How many water bag burst? How many bleed?

Come, share with me while I enjoy my moochi ice cream before I pop.

  7. For first one, I had a show, but no contraction until late at night, tapi already masuk hospital liao. Boring only...
    Second one, got experience liao. Wait for contraction, summore count the time and frequency until about 10 minutes apart baru masuk hospital. Mana tau, low blood pressure and umbilical cord on bb. Sigh...

  8. I had some spotting for a few days but gynae says its normal as he's done some cervix stretching so that could help cervix open faster.

    1 week later, I had contraction pains. Started off with period pain type for 1/2 a day. Then, at 4am cannot tahan the pain already (5 mins apart) only went to admit at hosp. I couldn't sit when the contractions came... below there pain!!

    Oh, despite the pain and before admitted to hosp... we swung buy and had early breakfast at McD at 5am..heheh!

    10am only doc dropped by to check; dilated 6cm and broke my water bag. He said I could deliver by noon!

    Waited and waited... still dilated at 6cm at noon. Put me on drip, contractions and pains really unbearable. The gasses didn't help at all. Pain killers too! The nurse kept consoling me and tried to distract my attention by telling me her stories of her kids! Kept telling me things will be fine and when I see the baby I'll forget about the pain I went thru!

    At 4pm only dilated 10cm!! Gynae came at 4.30pm. Felt like one big cannon ball on the way out! Really like wanna pangsai...pushing few times and eager to get it out asap! After Ryan was out... i really felt relieved!! Much much better and can't even feel when gynae stitched me up...perhaps, it feels nothing compared to the labour pains? :P

  9. For me, it was real easy. No joke! My first one & only time and I was blessed with no pain and no water break yet. Just some minor bleeding the night before due date. I read up on hypnobirthing so I was prepared for an easy birth.

  14. sasha,
    I wish I can tell you more... Perhaps... wait till I change my gender first. Can? kakaka!

  15. My first 2 were induced. So I was like you wondering what it feels like and how will I know.

    Well, with #3, when the contractions started, my stomach would tighten and there would be mild pain. Ya lah, like period pain. At first I wasn't sure, thot maybe could be Braxton Hicks but I timed them and they were quite consistent - every 20 minutes, then 15 minutes. Pain also getting more intense. So I quickly got DH to race me to hospital. Takes me about 40-45 minutes to get there. By the time I arrive, contractions were already 5 minutes apart. Can't even change my clothes without having a contraction.
    So I don't know, maybe when you get the pain, see if they are consistent? Oh, BTW, my water didn't break. And I couldn't enjoy my fried chili popia which I waited whole week to buy from pasar malam and missed my favorite show that day too. Darn!

  19. After having two, I still have no idea what contraction or water bag burst are like. So I cannot tell you.Just don't think about it.

    But I know when the doc check dilation, it is darn painful!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Me.. started with contractions (every few hours then progressed to every 20 mins when I was admitted). Gynae burst my water bag. Then popped. :P

    I guess there is no bible to what will definitely happen. Enjoy the suspense. Blehhh....

  21. sorry, can't help u with this. hahahha..because i also don't have experience. Mine is last minute admit and having c session. :P

    ReplyDelete
  22. well, u said when u were induced, you felt pain wor, was there intervals in between like spasm. consistent intervals would mean contractions gua.

    for me, my waterbag burst 1st but no contractions till 2 hours later. how i know is because it comes and goes every 5 minutes. No pain but felt like slight period cramp. and then it got worst like very bad period cramps. after that, it spreads right out to your lower back like nobody's biz and i will say it's a million times worst than period cramps!

    i just updated on my birth story for my 1st coz i scared i'll 4get when no. 2 comes. i'm very eager to hear yours coz after posting my birth story, i now very scared again and i got another 5-8 weeks to go for having no.2! i shld hv done my updates right after i gave birth then!

  23. Mine, tinge of blood for both kids. But it doesn't matter wat majority of us experience coz each person n each pregnancy is different. In that case, when urs start, it'll be "Surprise! Surprise!"

  24. I was induced on both times.... And contractions felt like a real big time tummy cramp...

  25. For my 2 boys, I had regular contractions, no water bag burst or stain. Timed it and it was consistent every 5 mins or so. Hubby drove me to hospital each time and for each delivery, I opt not to have epidural. Both babies were delivered in less than 5 hrs, aft a major pang-sai :p

  26. u can have more than 1 water bag burst??

    mmmmm..i wan the icecreammmm!!

  27. I just felt rather heavy like want to pangsai lah, so I mai go to check up just to make sure loh and then the doc hor, she burst my water pipe. Chey! And then after many many hours of contraction, she say not good enuf wor, she go and induce and then pain pain loh because I like hero (stupid hero) refuse epidural, when open left 1 more just 1 more cm, doc suddenly come in and say, sorry, you have to go for emergency caesarean becos too long already. Then she go and tell my hubby, you have to decide because otherwise you may lose either the mother or the baby. Like holding a gun to his head and asking him to go for caesaerean like dat. So mar no choice loh. Sob sob sob. So many hours of pain and just 1 cm left. Waaaaaaah! After that double waaaaah because I have to pay for many many hours of using the labour room and then by the time I used the operating room it was after midnite so I have to pay for caesarean plus after midnite surcharge lagi. Waaaaaah. That was the first time.

    Second time I plan to go for VBAC. So doc say ok we wait for labour pain. Then last minute when I went for check up dat time hor, she say, your baby too big ler, your old caesarean wound may open up ler (becaues it was hurting then), can see from the scan that baby's neck near the umbilical cord lah so may have complications lah, this lah dat lar so lik dat better not try and in the end she made me go home to pack my stuff and go back immediately that afternoon for caesarean. She say must do straight away because I almost going to pop adi and the labour pains may come before I have the caesarean so must HURRY. Aiyoyo, dat time I really not prepared ler. So rush. Must rush home from clinic, then rush to hospital again to check in. Chey! This time since it was not emergency, I opted for caesarean under epidural so I can know whats happening. And then dat hubby of mine who said he was going to faint if he saw blood, when and look at my insides! Now he knows me inside out.

    Both time birth experience oso bleh! But nvm lah, now I have two lovelies.

    Sorry so long hor. You say share share mah.
