So get the engine starting...how about my labour story..i was felling like wanna share with someone or anyone..hehe
I was still pregnant a week after the due date and believe it I was so happy going to open houses and eating all foods that I know I can't have during confinement..(it was raya..cant just glanced at the ketupat and laksa)
At some point I got nervous and started texting my friend and umi asking what to do since baby is still happy living in mommy..hee
My friends even make jokes
"Has hajar delivered yet? "
"I dont think so...she just comment on my instagram...haha"
See a should-be-in-labour mother really got attention..*flips shawl*
So after having breakfast..my husband and I went straightaway for our appoinment..
Arrived there and have to wait for like half an hour..peeing in a small bottle(i dont know exactly what they called it)
Sitting..looking at the phone
And then.."Puan Hajar"
Really happy to see the gynae
She checked on my pregnancy card and pissed off
"You're a week late for labour..why dont you come here ealier"
I was like "Whatttt.."
I really dont know that the as edd got nearer then I have to meet the gynae every single week
The nurse got a good lecture on this..
The painful part was the doctor got her hands up your vagina and the next thing is hurting you Etc walking..sitting down slowly..felt like crying
I got to my husband who were soundly sleeping in the car..really sorry to wake him up..but this time he have to..we're going to have a baby
The nurse said to come back in 3 pm and if i'm not dilated then they have to induce me
So scaryyy...i heard stories induction make you endure the pain longer and you're not even in labour stage
I shivered at the thought
So going back home..and being stubborn not going back to the hospital
I sleep a little after getting a phone call from my gynae asking why im not on their bed*she didnt say this..hehe
At 4am there was a sharp pain at the back..
And it kept coming frequently..
I thought "that's it...cant stand it anymore"
Perform morning prayer and packed the kain batik..we when to the hospital
I cant eat anymore..just drink honey-flavoured-drink and eating dates will do..
The contraction was getting harsh..i just lay down on my side and getting someone to rub my back..my umi, mil and husband taking their turns rubbing me..comforting..offering drinks..
I was really happy that my parents come all their way from penang for a meeting and I was on labour tooo...thank god..having my loved ones with me..
I got annoyed this one time when I was so in pain that I kept saying "sakit....sakit.."
And he was like "jangan fikir sakit tu.."
say what...if it was not for his child..I wont endure this...
the nurse came in checking my dilation..just a little opened..
and she came back and inserted a liquid into your butt..then the next you find yourself in the toilet..
messaged my friends in our wapps group asking for their dua's...
In the afternoon..the contraction coming even frequently just by seconds interval...
I cant keep it anymore..felt like doing my business on the bed
The nurse came rushing..felt really stupid because they said it loud..
"Oh no..it's green..the baby really is coming out"
I bet everyone heard us..dont mind we paid you for this
In the labour room..had to wait like years before the doctor arrived
She was late because there was a lot of lorry on the road
How come lorries so many in the afternoon
I used to think lorries move in the middle of the night
I have to take a couple rounds of pushing and breathing in...then the baby was out..
She's all swollen and her skin was red..
My husband stayed with me..holding my hand during labour..and just after the baby was safely delivered..he left me because he felt light-headed..seeing all this bloody stuff
After that i got stiched up and was very weak to even move a muscle..why cant i just rest here a little more..
I got on another bed before they wheeled me to my room
Thank goodness I got a room all to myself..
I would be depressed if I was with other mothers..because it was so noisy..chattering and children screaming
I felt very cold..I asked to cover my feet and even off the fan..
Being in labour sure is energy-consuming even to heat up your body
Drank a cupful of milo and asked innocently for rice..
after that i got to breastfeed my baby
a little pain in the nipple because isnt used
All was good..everyone was happy..and I even got to text my friends
They all wished me happy things and I slept soundly that night with my mil on the right and my baby girl on my left
Now...I'm a mother
