I'M A MOM!!!


The moment that I’ve been waiting for sooooo long since early this year. *relief*

This entry supposedly meeting you guys last 2 weeks I guess... but due to some technical errors and some other reasons (kunun!!)... hubby was not able to publish it... Sorry for the long wait... *wink-wink*

Chronology of event: (Sinang cerita ba! Hehehe…)

24 OCTOBER 2008

5am – 7am:
Contraction getting frequent from time to time even there were no blooding or leakage of water bag.

7am – 7.45am:
Showered and getting ready to the Hospital (HKL).

8.15am – 9.30am:
Admissions counter of HKL. They were sooooo slow!!! VE (I supposed it stands for Vaginal Examination) was done and it was already opened 4cm! (4cm??!!!!  *Gulp*) I was then pushed to the Labour Room by wheel chair.

Labour Room! 2nd VE done – 5cm! I presumed I will have to go through another few more tough hours before delivering.

Felt like poo-poo and I still got time to think “If terberak ni, malunya!!”
3rd VE done – 8cm!! When I heard 8cm, I was so shocked yet relief at the same time. Some of the first timer mom will have to experience a “1 hour for 1cm opening” of labouring process. *faint*

Nurse offered to jap the Epidural. But, I said no. Earlier, I did plan to jap it. But, after some considerations, I managed to convince myself that I can do it even without Epidural.

Started the ‘pushing’ part. I don’t think it was painful thou. To me, it was really tiring!! Episiotomy was done as the opening was only 9cm but baby can’t wait no longer. Having a really good ‘cheerleaders’ team (a doctor, a midwife, 2 nurses and my hubby - luckily he didn’t faint!! Hahha...) was indeed very helpful.

A lil’ baby boy was finally born! There is no word in this world that could describe what the exact feeling is when they put the baby on my chest! I cried without tears… All the tiredness gone with the wind… And the blessing part is baby was born with cleft lip only without cleft palate. Alhamdulillah… syukur kepada Allah SWT.

Baby on my chest rite after he was born

11.35am – 12.25pm:
Needlework’!! Goshhhh…. It was 100 times painful than the ‘pushing’ part! Gheezz… still could feel the needle!! Surely a trauma to every first time mom!! Phew…
I was then left over at the Labour Room after being fed with a cup of hot milk.

1.20pm – 2.00pm:
Ready to be sent over to my bed. They placed baby next to me for breastfeeding. I was soooo touched! Since baby has cleft lip, his ‘vacuum’ system is not as good as the other babies. So, breastfeeding is not successfully working. Formula Milk is the answer as top-up milk.

Ok… enough lah with the labouring story. Need to make the story shorter bah… Heheheh…

I was then discharged on 26 Oct after doctor confirmed that both baby and I were ok.

Hospital has arranged for appointment with doctor from the plastic surgery unit for further advices and arrangement for surgery to be done on 14 January 2009.

Oppsss… I guess I have to stop now. Catch up with you guys soon with more stories and pix of me being a mom ok… *wink-wink*
