I felt a mild contraction on monday morning around 9am...I was chatting with my cousins & asked me to time my contraction, but didnt kira the timing, coz belum lagi that sakit. I told Gerry about the contraction at noon...and remind him to finish the baby cot, trus baru mau pigi cat..!!
3.30pm : woke up from my afternoon nap, I felt it more intense and start timing it...15mins apart.
5.30pm : Down to 8mins apart...SMSed Didi about my contraction & she said bulih sudah pigi Hospital. But I said, sya mau mandi dulu & cuci rambut..."if I terberanak tonite sure cannot cuci hair for 1 month.."
7.00pm : Gerry belum sampai lagi..contraction 5-6mins apart...Didi & MIL offer to send me to Hospital, but sya mau Gerry juga hantar. Hehe..
8.00pm : Arrived Hospital Likas. Didi did the check-up on me....& she yang juga kurik-kurik my bobong, & I saw her glove ada darah.
9.00pm : Change to pink hospital gown. Check-in Wad Kenanga 2. Gerry takajut, coz he did'nt expect im gonna beranak sudah soon. Dia fikir bulih balik rumah lagi.
After 9.00pm I didnt bother to look at the time. Contraction is sure sakit, but still bearable. Muntah my dinner...there goes my energy.
10 something pm, Didi came with mama...checked my bobong again & i'm 4cm dilated. She told me, the nurses tidak berani check my bobong, dunno why...
Half an hour later, nurses came with trolley bed and transfer me to the labor room.
Didi broke my waterbag...
Cannot stand the pain & demand for epidural...I think Didi got irritated by me, coz balik-balik saya tanya where is the epidural doctor...and she said "Kau fikir kau saturang saja kah patient di sini hospital.." kuang, kuang, kuang...
I was in the labor room for 12hrs...and been pushing for 2hrs. There's when I pushed they said..."aaah ngam lah tu, ajan lagi" & I pushed again..."...mmm salah tu cara ko ajan..." tapi samaaa saja sya push dari tadi lagi, I really dunno what's the difference.
At 7am, I'am already 9cm dilated but it stucked there until 9.30am....punya lama!!! nasib ada epidural...
Berabis lagi phone Gerry bunyi-bunyi kena call from family members if sya sudah beranak ka belum, sampai habis phone battery dia.
Ada lagi ketawa sama-sama tu mid-wives sebab epidural kan, sya tidak rasa sakit pun...sempat lagi minta cermin , sebab mau tinguk sampai mana tu kepala kluar...
Every half an hour or an hour, I can hear babies crying of being born...there's time where Gerry told me i'm the only one left in the wad bersalin who belum beranak lagi, every room was empty except for room 7. There this one moment I was pushing..everyone was "ya!! push lagi..!!push lagi..!!" & ada juga bilik sebelah pun "ya!! push lagi..!!push lagi..!!"...the mid-wives said to me, "hah Joyce, bertanding lah kamu, siapa dulu keluar....then we heard baby cries di sebelah bilik...I was so frustrated.
The epidural started to wear off & it was really-really painfull...tidak bulih lagi senyum-senyum. Sudahlah I can't drink water, only a few sips & to kasih basah-basah my bibir...trus ada juga Gerry kasih minum sya holy water, hahaha!!! Holy water from my mom kana bawa that morning when Didi minta hantar baju.
The doctor said its been too long & mesti vacumm. But the mid-wives berusaha juga mau saya push supaya tidak kena vacumm. Last-last I gave up & said..."Ah..vacumm lah...".
When the specialist came, the room is sooo packed macam bulih sampai 20ppl...Gerry, Didi, 2 mid-wives, 1 doctor, 1 specialist, 1 paediatric doctor, & lots of training doctors...sya pun tidak paduli sudah.
Punya slow lagi tu specialist mau explain to me what he's gonna do...this & that...sudahlah orang kesakitan the contraction...even when he gunting my bobong pun sya tidak rasa...then I saw him pull, punya berabis lagi dia pull..& I thought..kalau dia pun susah mau tarik..apalagi saya mau push.
Finally baby Abrey is out at 11.37am...I did'nt manage to look at his face, only his back & balabak, coz dorang trus bawa kluar immediately after potong the umbilical cord. Suddenly the room trus empty, tinggal me, Gerry & 1 mid-wife who jahit my bobong yang vusas...then sya trus patah.
Memang betul-betul heavy duty, really dunno if I can go through it again...
I dedicate this entry to Gerry & Didi who being there for me through labor. I love you both too!!
but most of all to Gerry who took care of me & baby Abrey...
Daddy in action..
