Aisyah Lily: The Birth

Thanks to my readers for all the warm wishes. Me and Aisyah are doing well (she's a healthy one week baby today!). I'm slowly adjusting my time to this whole new world of motherhood and enjoying every second of it. *love*

I gave birth to Aisyah in Hospital Serdang via normal delivery, it all happened at my 38 weeks of pregnancy. Yes, much earlier than the EDD which is supposed to be on the 20th July. Oh, here's the chronology (cewah!) of the days before Aisyah was born. Sharing is caring. :)

My waterbag broke exactly at 6.30am, on the same time the morning buzzer goes off. I immediately alarmed my husband, then took a shower and get ready while husband helped to prepare some things to bring to the hospital. By this time, the water keep leaking and I couldn't care less to change my panties and trouser after doing so for a few times already. I have to cover the car's cushion with a thick towel to prevent wetting all the way to the hospital.

We arrived at the hospital and went straight to Dewan Bersalin. Registered, then they called up my name and I have to change my clothes to their pink uniform. I was still leaking, non-stop, but there's still no signs of contractions what-so-ever. The nurses came and did the usual check-up routines, performed a CTG and a doctor came in to see whether I have dilated or not. And yes, no dilation yet. :(

Ward 5F/8

So I have to wait at the hall with my husband while they prepared for my ward admission sometime later in the evening. By 1pm, I started to feel uneasy and had some mild contractions, still bearable, and I can still munch on foods before my pantang starts. Hehe. Finally, around 3-ish I was admitted but still there's no signs of delivery anytime soon. They have to monitor me and the baby as I didn't stop leaking since this morning.

Husband was with me until 8pm when the visiting time was over. Nurses came a few times for their usual check-ups that night and at 10pm, doctors came for their rounds and said I'll be induced if there's still no signs of dilation yet. 

At 1am, I started to have strong contractions but they weren't consistent, and yes, I was still leaking. I didn't feel good and had trouble sleeping the whole night. At 5am, a nurse woke me up as the doctor wanted to check on me. Went to Bilik Rawatan, where a group of expectant mothers were also waiting for their turns to see the doctor and they too, had contractions for hours already. The doctor checked my cervical opening and there's only 1cm dilation so it's confirmed, I have to be induced since it's been almost 24 hours since my waterbag broke. 

At around 7am, I finally have the real contractions and this time, they were frequent, maybe about 3 times in 5 minutes with some blood-shows. The pain was unbearable. I felt like dying and my waist-down was in pain like hell. The doctor came in and checked on me. At that time, I was at 3cm dilated. The doctor placed her finger further into my cervix to help it dilate more. Husband came early to the hospital and waited at the hall after I texted him saying that I'll be into labour anytime soon. 

By 9am, I really couldn't bear the pain and rang the nurses and doctors for epidural to help ease the pain. But no, they didn't want to give me any as they want me to dilate naturally and have normal delivery. By this time, I was at 5cm and a nurse inserted this 'ubat berak' where it resulted in me going to the toilet 3 times afterwards to ease my bowel. A doctor then ordered me to be wheeled into the labour room. 

In the labour room, a male doctor asked me a few questions and I couldn't care much to answer as I was in pain. Then he taught me how to push before a group of nurses and midwives came in to assist me during delivery. They called up my husband to accompany me in the labour room too (yeay!!!!) but during that time, I didn't care who was with me anymore. All I want was this whole process to be done and over with. 

3 hours after delivery. Tired but happy to the max!

The midwives were really supportive. They cheered me up. I had 4 unsuccessful attempts of pushing where finally on the fifth push, the baby is out and the moment I heard her cries, a wave of relieve surpassed me. It's finally over and I'm a mother now. Alhamdulillah! A nurse placed Aisyah on my chest for a brief bonding session before she was whisked away for bath and cleanse. The delivery resulted in me having 6 outer stitches and 10 inner stitches, ni semua sebab terangkat punggung masa push! The nurses chatted with me while the midwife did the stitching. I couldn't feel anything anymore as I've gone through the contractions before, which was the greatest pain everrrrrrrr. Once you went through it then you'll know how painful it is.

Me and Aisyah have to stay in the ward for one more night as the medical team wanted to monitor my baby and a sample of her blood was taken yesterday for lab purposes. Since I've been leaking for more than 24 hours, this procedure is normal since they want to detect any infections on the baby and she has to be monitored for two days. I was bored to death staying in the hospital. being a new mum, all alone and tired, with a baby to look after and these episiotomy cuts to care for. I just can't wait to go back home and have a rest with a proper sleep.

Aisyah all prepared to go home...

And Mommy looks like bibik! Hahahaha!

Finally, it was time to be discharged. Husband came early to help me pack. A nurse took Aisyah for a simple bath time while I went to see the doctor to check my episiotomy cut. So far, everything was looking good so phewwwwww! By 11am, husband has settled all the bill and discharged papers then it's time to go home! Wheeeeeeeee!

Hehe bestnya, thinking of having the second one *wink*.

U stay at first class punya wad ke? I hari tu dapat 3rd class saje, sebab 1st and 2nd class penuh. It was okay la jugak, except that bila malam anak dah tidur, tiba-tiba baby lain menangis, anak kita terjaga pula. Hee. Well please take care of yourself, banyak juga jahitan tu. Petua my mom bagi dulu, everytime lepas doing your business at the toilet, anginkan guna stand fan pendek or hairdryer kat bahagian jahitan tu. Kalau part tu sentiasa kering, cepat sembuh inshaAllah :)
