Ah Boy is OUT!!!

Okie, seems that I'm wrong this time about Mex being overdue.... he decided to greet the world on 5 August 2007, Sunday morning. Apparently, both my kids love to 'torture' their mom, cos both decided that either the waterbag bursts or give a bloody show (Mex's turn) at MIDNIGHT... so no sleep for me this time too hahaha.... so here's my birth story.

It was Saturday morning n I was already feeling this great pressure on the front, but didn't pay much attention to it, n even went to the market alone to get some groceries. But I was feeling much more tired than usual. Came home, got changed n everything n went to fetch my new maid. This was a very fateful day, new maid, Michael lost his wallet, me having contractions... hahahaa. To cut the story short, it was quite a busy day.

After dinner, I started to have this passing motion feeling n some light pressure at the buttocks. Called my mom n told her I have this feeling I might deliver anytime from now. After I put Meia to bed, I kept having this tight pulling feeling in my tum, got up at 12.30am, went to relieve myself n to my surprise, found something dropping into the toilet bowl... I immediately wiped myself n found mucus n some blood. Called out to Michael (ya for meia I was in the toilet too when I called for hb) n told him its TIME!!! Called my mom n she immediately rushed over. I got my hospital bag from the cupboard, n as soon as my mom arrived, we left for KKH.

Was checked by the nurse. I was already 2-3cm dilated! No wonder... Gynae came around 2.30am n inserted prostin (pls check spelling haha). There were some contractions, but it wasn't very regular, so gynae said he would come back in the morning to take a look at me. I thought to myself that this time would be faster. At 4am, I felt more pain, so I called for the midwife to check on me, ONLY 3 cm STILL!!!!!!! AARGHHH!!!! GOSH!!!!!!!! nevermind, decided to rough it out n get some sleep. Finally at 8am gynae came n checked on me, alamak still 3cm dilated! This time he did something, n finally told me I'm 4cm dilated n that he'll put me on the DRIP!!!!!!! KENA INDUCED AGAIN!!!!!!! AAhhh nevermind, anything to get baby out FAST!!!! So was put on the drip again...

At 11am I felt tremendous PRESSURE!!! called for midwife, she checked n told me I'm 5cm. ok great n I yelled 'YEAH!!!' 11.30am, even MORE PRESSURE, called her in n found out I was fully dilated, midwife said I could push gently at the next contraction while she called for my gynae (luckily he had 3 other women to deliver next few rooms). Dr Tham came n checked n told me to PUSH! I told him yeah!!! Finally!!!

Although Mex was much bigger than Meia, I pushed him out in 4 pushes. RELIEVED at last!!!!!!! Mex came out, a big bouncy baby weighing at 3.466kg, and 50cm in length.

N the first thing I asked my hb....??? BOY right????
