Picture after 1 hour she was born:
Assalamualaikum and Good Evening to all
I delivered my baby safely at 13:52 on 2nd Oct 2009 at Shah Alam Specialist Hospital. And it is fortunately as my obg expected : A Girl!! She was 2.47 kg in weight and healthy. i delivered normally.
The episode started at 5 am that morning. my hubby was working on night shift and i was accompanied by my fren, Saniah. I felt sort of 'period pain' like and saw what people called a 'bloody show'. a bit panic, but still could regain my composure. Saniah luckily already woke up since she had to finish a report asked by my boss. Called my husband around 6, asked him to send me to the hospital. and adding drama to it, he didnt pick up the phone. and i knew he was sleeping and didnt hear the ringing. Saniah called my husband's co-worker, Zizi, asked him to wake my husband up. He clumsily woke up and rushed to our apt. He took a bath and around 6.30 am, we arrived at the hospital. We went upstairs to the labor room, the staff nurse checked me and said that i wasnt near to the time yet.. but she asked me to wait for the doctor at 9 am to reconfirm. Three of us went to Maisha Restaurant to have breakfast. i even had nasi lemak!
Around 9.30 am, Saniah went back and both of us went inside to meet the doctor. We waited almost 30 mins for the doctor. They placed me in the Labor room 2 and the doctor checked me at 10 am and confirm that i could deliver today. what a relieve! She asked me to go poo-poo first, gave some medicine to go to the toilet. i were brought to the room at Anggerik Suite, Room 230. waited around 10 mins, and i went to the toilet. some time around 10.30 am, i went to the labor room 2. the doctor told me that she was going to break the amnoic fluid. and luckily it wasnt that bad.. a feeling of excitement to meet my baby mixed with afraid what was in store for me..they put me into Pictoxin, some medication that'll fasten the contraction.i was dilated 3 cm that time. they expected 1 cm per hour - which i had another 7 cm to go.which will take approximately another 5-6 hours for me.
Around 1 pm, my husband went out for a while (which i thought for a while). he even thought of going to Solat Jumaat. some time around 1:35 pm i was about to deliver..dilated around 8 cm.. all the nurses were in chaos since they thought that i'll deliver later around 4 pm. but somehow, i was a bit early, which was a relieve for me since i dont have to suffer that long. the nurse called my husbnd and asked him to come. as he arrived, so did the doctor. i was ready, and they asked my husband to support my back. "Push" they told me.. 4 times, and there she was.. crying loudly. and alhamdulillah, thank God everything went smoothly..
Now, our family is complete..
