The birth of Wan Intan Ayesha Bt Wan Azhar - Pt 3

looks like the story went a bit longer then i intended it to be...n the birth story hasnt even started yet =P...

so, after 1 hour of daddy's foot treatment while lil girl playing at the indoor playground, i finally decided to go to the hospital to check on the contractions...a bit scared though coz im not dat ready to give birth juz yet...we went to my parents' house to drop off lil girl...i keep changing my mind (becoz of fear) but hubby managed to convince me to go to the hosp...

decided to go for check-up with the same doctor dat did lil girl...since its Sunday afternoon, we went straight to the emergency section...the nurse called the doctor (which is also oncall for dat day, she's been there since morning, one mother had delivered, another still waiting, so im the third person)..she instructed the nurse to do admission straight away (alamak, aku nk beranak dah ka??!!? panik2!!) another nurse wheeled me to the 4th floor..on the way there, i asked the nurse since i was not so sure whether the contractions are real ones or juz braxton-hicks...she said that the midwife will check my contractions to confirm b4 calling the doctor..at the bottom of my heart, i did hope it would turn out to be a false one...huuuuu...

at the time when i was checked in the labor room, i didnt feel any contractions...the midwife strap me on the monitoring machine (i forgot the name, was it the ecg?)...she was monitoring the machine while her hands on my stomach...quite a gentle n motherly person...after 5mins, she still cant sense any contractions....so she called the doctor...hubby already by my side after arranging for my admission..the moment the doctor came in, she asked 'so dtg cni nk wat ape?'....i seriously blank upon hearing dis question....i shud hv said 'saya rase contraction every 1 hour since dis morning,so sy nk cek whether its time to deliver'...but looking at my blank face, the doctor continued 'nk beranak la kan??'...n she continued on the procedure of checking, i.e. proses seluk pon bermula...i couldnt recall how it felt to be diseluk (i totally forgot all the pain during the first time...i remembered my Form 3 BM teacher once told the class, whereby how painful it is to give birth, yet women can do dis over n over again becoz Allah has given dis gift of forgetting the pain)...while being seluk, she asked me to start using the ethonox gas...yes, it was VERY PAINFUL...but Alhamdulillah, im 4cm dilated...means i can give birth by midnight..

she inserted a medicine to induce me (is it called oxytocin?? cant remember but the procedure is similar to my first delivery, hence my conclusion is, every person will be induced)..suppose she wants to expedite the delivery process...hubby called both our parents..my parents was coincidentally on the way to the hospital as we forgot to leave lil girl's diapers..the initial plan is for hubby to meet them at the carpark (to avoid lil girl seeing me,afraid she'll be clingy to me)....but i sooo want to meet my lil girl..so i forced them to come up as i was feeling rather sad to leave lil girl...i even cried after hugging her (sayu sgt masa nihhh,ntahla knape)...

after getting back to the room, i started walking (inside the labor room only, im not allowed to go beyond the room) to expedite my contractions..dinner was sent to the labor room, sadly not for me but hubby..even the nurse reluctantly gave permission for me to eat the jelly...every 15mins i would drink air zamzam n air akar fatimah, n rubbing the air selusuh onto my stomach..hubby opened surah maryam n yassin on the youtube on his tab..i can stil endure the pain..persuaded hubby to eat dinner as he's going to need alot of energy to accompany me eventho i knew he juz dont hv the appetite during these times..kept on repeating the zikirs : lailahailla anta kuntu minadzolimin and rabbi yassir walatu'assir yaa karimm...

then at 7.30pm, the midwife came to check on the contractions again..hence, marks the beginning of staying on the bed, enduring the labor pain...my contractions were 5mins apart..the doctor was called again to check on my opening....it was 8cm..alhamdulillah...then she broke my waterbag...huhuhuuuuu, after dat i couldnt let go of the ethonox gas and the most important thing : HUBBY'S HAND...the contractions become quicker and whenever it comes, i will squeeze hubby's hand (to support me emotionally)...i became 'dizzier and lighter' due to the gas, i couldnt open my eyes...until 8.40pm, the pain is getting stronger, i asked hubby to call the nurse...she checked my opening, still not the time yet...i was like 'whhaaattt??!!!!'...ok2, u can do dis...hubby was gently stroking my head...but the nurse's seluk was much more gentler than the doctor's...or isit becoz ive dilated to 8cm...hence it felt less painful??

while i was bz coping with the pain, the doctor was bz calling the nurse for update...'has she had the urge yet? how's the contractions? can u estimate when she's going to labor?'..the nurse would run around the room, answering doctor's call, checking the ecg machine...do i really need to hear dis? im trying to do my best here but obviously ure putting the stress to me...she was sooo anxious becoz the other mother who's been in the labor room since morning is waiting to have the emergency c-zer...think it was her first child,maybe she wasnt dilated enuf..

probably around 9o'clock...i suddenly peed on my bed,like alotttttttt of pee..wasnt my fault, the baby's head  obviously was pushing my bladder =P (ok, i admit...i drank too much water b4 dat)...called the nurse to clean up..but they were discussing whether its pee or my waterbag..the contractions were getting much2 stronger..suddenly i had the urge to push..the nurses quickly setup the equipments n i saw the doctor came in, wearing the gloves..n i gave one push the best dat i can....n i can feel the baby gushing out of me...n it was over!! finally, alhamdulillah..dis time, it was not so difficult...

so at 9.23pm, Wan Intan Ayesha was born...
