The arrival of our second prince...

Susahnye lah hai nak start this post.... Handling 2 at once is just not easy....ada je yg nk berlaku when i sit down in front of the pasocon...anyway back to the story

It all started one Saturday morning.... I woke with really bad stomach cramps... the type that feels like you&ve done 1 thousand sit ups the day before.... Woke up several times that morning it started at 2 am went back to sleep and when I woke up at 5 am still the same dull pain. But I just shrugged it off coz it didn't feel like contratctions. 

Anyway at about 11 am...became worried coz the pain didn't go away... so we opted to go see the doc. Sampai2 doc scan and the baby was fine and asked me to go up and do the ctg... u know the stomach cramps well it made moving really hard and painful...nak pusing badan pun painful... and the ctg... well it showed that indeed i was having contractions...so doc suruh nyuin (admit) to stop the contractions and get 2 doses of steroids utk matangkan paru2 baby... 

CTG during my preterm labor

So i got the 2 doses...and like kak nadia said in her blog entry.... mmm...serious pedih this injection...my next bed neighbour (also in to stop her preamture labour) actually cried when she was told she was getting another dose...

Next afternoon i was discharged with orders to continue the medication to stop the contraction for another 2 days and mc until after raya... but we decided to go back to Kulim anyway coz we had some stuff to do and i had already scheduled my car to undergo servicing since dlm kepala saya...I was still adamant nak balik bukit mahkota even against doc and parental advice...keras kepala right...

The next day, again against docs orders, i went to work...nak pass down kerja.. i remeber hubby asking which i would prefer giving birth before or after raya and i said before...coz then i wouldn't be in "anticipation" mode for too long... if u ask me this again i'll give u a different answer....haha

On Tuesday, i woke up and recommenced fasting, ye lah dah tak payah makan ubat, so i had no reason not to right...by lunch time i had a really bad headache and hubby said buka lah puasa..so i did and was in the middle of separating egg whites and yolks (tgh nak bake kek lapis) when i suddenly felt the urge to puke... and while i was puking my water broke...

And it just dawned on me...this is it... i thought i would be scared u know ...tp it was just like a statement...this is it...

Called hubby up and started getting ready to go to the hosp.. it was 3.15pm.. called up the hosp and my parents and sat there waiting... and the contractions started..but still bearable..

Sampai kat hosp diorg nak pasang ctg again...
Doc checked on me and confirmed that my water did indeed break and performed a VE..i was 4 cm dilated and fully effaced... the nurse came in and gave me a blue hocp gown to change into and i was hooked onto the ctg..sempat lg dia bg tahu...hr ramai lah kak..seblm akak ad lg 4 org tgh laboring...oh okay.....rasa mcm lmbt lg je nak branak ada dlm lg 4-5jam kot...by this time the contractions were getting more frequent and of more intensity... it was totally different from Harith's, during his birth the increase of the intensity was more gradual..

after about 20mins..i couldn't stand the pain and yes i did make some sounds and the nurse came in...how shocked was she to see that i was already crowning..and she kept here hand there applying preasure...x mau bg baby keluar... they got me onto a wheelchair..siap ckp lg ...kepit dik kepit...jgn push...kesian nanti koyak besar...kepit....kalau sakit tarik nafas kot hidung hembus kot mulut....but i tell you just like Harith's birth the hardest part is trying not to push when your whole body and mind is telling you to...

i was pushed into the delivery room which was already occupied... they put up a screen and wheeled me to another delivery bed...it took me a few miutes to get out of the chair...by then hubby was in the deliver room...minutes later doc walked in...apparently the labor was progreesing a bit quicker than she expected...she was out tgh beli kuih...hahaha.... while she was getting ready again the nurse was whispering jgn push kak...tahan tahan...breathe ...hembus kot mulut...and i said i could't...and doc bebel...apa yg susah sgt...nafas je..(dlm hati saba je la...org kata tak boleh tu tak boleh tahan jgn push....bukan tak leh nafas henbus kot mulut...haiyaaa) but i kept quiet....she performed the episiotomy.. i started pushing...felt the ring of fire and his head came out...on the third push out second son was out in the world at 5.08pm.... then they took him down to the nursery where our premature son got 30 minutes of oxygen therapy.. 

this time the placenta came out quite quick with Harith it came out 20 minutes after his birth...she stitched me which surprisingly didn't hurt unlike Harith's time and there  wasn't much blood on me either...but this is all me comparing this birt to my eldest son's...

And that my friends sums up the arrival of our second prince... at 35 weeks, with no gas, no epidural...

Our secong prince, Amirul Lutfi

Glad hubby could be by my side this time and experience it for himself.. Proud of him...he ws quite cool about it... 

One happy family....
