The Baby Is OUT!

30th June 2008 , last Monday.....I gave birth to a premature baby boy. Exactly 7 months. Like I said to my family and friends, it was quite a dramatic birth......well, for me at least. But thankfully it was over so quickly......if this is how birth is EVERYTIME......I'd do it over and over again ;-)

Chronology of birth........
10:30am - 12:10pm - Took my nap in Yna's room coz later on at 2:00pm I'll be seeing my favourite guy-nae aka gynaecologist Dato' Dr. Ashar Abdullah at Ampang Puteri for my monthly check up. Am looking foward to see him coz for the last 2 days I had one dot of a tiny spatter of some brownish thingy on my panty liner in the mornings......(mind you guys) really wanted to ask him what was it. I woke up to the urge of wanting to pee so badly....besides , when I look at the time it was almost 12:15pm,,,so I thought I'd better get up anyway and get ready for my appoinment with Dr. Ashar.

12:15pm - As I was getting out of bed.....I just can't hold my pee.....had no control of it coming out from my VJJ (as Oprah calls 'em)......I thought it was my pee BUT when I look down OMG! it was blood! It was all over the floor. I speed dialed Nan , which was in the other room,,,told him to call Dr. Ashar's clinic.


12:18pm - Nan called the clinic and told the staff what had happened and they told him it's normal and told Nan to ask me to come at 2:00pm as per scheduled....????


I said....is this NORMAL???? Am bleeding so heavily and it's normal???? Well, maybe they thought it was just a tiny bleed......maybe Nan didn't explain to them how bad it was.....I don't know.....maybe....perhaps.....ANYWAYS....thank god I didn't panic,,,,maybe because I didn't feel any pain at that point. We (me , Nan & my bro-in-law Mus) decided that we'd better head to the hospital right away to be on the safe side. Took my shower , shampooed my hair and yes....quickly shaved my legs....hehehe! Hello! My gynae is a male doctor ok.....malu aaaa......


12:30pm - My bro-in-law drove us to Ampang Puteri.....upon arrival , went straight to emergency......Nan told the staff that I was bleeding and they quickly ushered me for further check ups and what not. I wanted so badly for Dr. Ashar to take a look at my condition at that time but he wasn't in yet. Still on lunch break I guess. You see,,,,,I've had experiences with female gynaes and female doctors handling me below the belly.....and I don't like 'em. They're not gentle and am not comfortable with them. With Dr. Ashar it's the opposite feeling........it's totally a different experience all together. Don't know why but I feel safe , comfortable and relax. Tak percaya? Get pregnant and go see Dr. Ashar at Ampang Puteri....you'll know what am talking about.

After series of check ups , drip given by poking a huge needle on my hand and a jab given on my butt.....I was asked whether it's possible for me to be warded for a day at least for further monitoring. I said fine , ok. Told Nan and he arranged for me to be warded.


1:30pm - I started getting mild contractions. Every 3~4 minutes , I felt 30 seconds long contractions. Wasn't as painful as the full term contractions but still.......painful is the word! I was left alone on the bed at emergency for quite some time,,,,,perhaps getting my room ready or waiting for Nan to pay admission deposit....no idea why.....so I was timing my contractions.....had one at 1:34pm.....another one at 1:37pm.....another at 1:40pm.....and finally a male hospital staff came to take me to my room on the 3rd floor. Yes....still having those mild contractions on the way up to my room............


Lost track of time - Once in my room , they put me on this machine with a strap around my belly,,,,,,to monitor if there's any contractions.....but the machine seems not to be picking up any vibes but I'm feeling so bloody painful around my hips and lower back.....Finally Dr. Ashar came and asked me what had happened....showed him a picture of blood on the floor that I took before leaving the house.....he said , that's quite a lot of blood there. He's such a calm doctor I tell you....he told me to relax and he'll come back in a while to..........well, I didn't really hear what he said to me at this point coz am experiencing another contraction but the damn machine just won't pick up any vibe! In my heart I was like....No! No! No! please.......doc.....don't leave me with this machine again........but duuhhhh! Dr. Ashar dah tak de......huhuhu! The nurse switched off the machine and took off the strap around my belly and off she goes..........

I was left alone in the room....yes.....alone again.....and now I wanna pee. Didn't call for any assistance,,,,I got down from the bed and dragged the drip pole with me into the bathroom. After peeing (mind me) I felt like doing the other throwing thingy.....(mind me again).....while in the bathroom , got couple of contractions.....by this time contractions was every 1~2 minutes and lasted for 30 seconds. It's getting more painful.....My stomach was aching.....I had to throw or flush 'something' out of my system BUT as I was attempting to push,,,,,,,I felt something hard coming out of my VJJ as well......I stopped pushing.....and was in severe pain.


Around 2:30ish pm - I came out of the bathroom and my mom just arrived. Nan dropped her and went to fetch Yna at school. By then I can't get on the bed. I had to stand as it was so painful and I really felt like pushing something out from both holes!!!!..........MIND ME! EXCUSE ME! Where is my doctor.........I was screaming in my heart.....still.........I need D.O.C.T.O.R....A.S.H.A.R......P.L.E.A.S.E.............Cried to my mom , telling her I can't stand it already......think am giving birth now.....Hmmmm.....funny thing was....my mom just stood there across the bed from where I was.....staring at me....she didn't call for help or anything.....she panic.......SO,,,,,I pressed the red button and told the nurse in charge (via intercom) that I can't hold the baby any longer.....I'm gonna give birth nowwwwwwwww!!!!!!!


The next thing I know....4~5 nurses came running into my room.....picture this CHAOS.....they were pulling wires from the bed , helping me get up on bed , opening the door , pushing the bed out of the room....and yes of course....one nurse was holding my VJJ......I was rushed to labour room.....huhuhu! I want my Dr. Asharrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!! NOW!!!!!!!! OK, OK, they paged him back to attend me. My mom told me that Dr. Ashar came to my room but she told him that I was already been taken to labour room.


At the hallway.....I was constantly told to inhale and don't push yet......???? How on earth am I to do that at this point? I really wanna push something out from my VJJ but was told not to.....plus I was in pain.....SUDDENLY.....still at the hallway.....I made a push.....felt something big came out.....I said "the baby is out....the baby is out....".....and I heard someone saying....."bilik mana?.....bilik mana?.....(which room???)..."and yes....my Dr. Ashar was with me.....at last :-)


As I was pushed into the labour room.........hmmm.....more of like a waiting room to me.....you know,,,the room where you had to wait before entering the actual labour room.....well, I don't know lah.......with almost no effort at all....3:00pm....my tiny baby was out. He was so errr.....black in colour.....heard him crying.....he was then rushed down to 2nd floor to ICU....


I was in awe....suddenly clueless....with my legs was wide open, half naked in front of my gynae.....I said to Dr. Ashar "sekarang dah tak sakit...." and Dr. Ashar said "sekarang memang dah tak sakit...."......according to him I had a small tear down there.....but anyway he gave me few jabs around my torn VJJ to make it numb before stiching it up.....nice......at least he didn't put me through another pain....not like some stiching stories I've heard.....Ouuch! Have to add this.........I don't know why BUT the presence of my Dr. Ashar (yes mine!......his wife will kill me if she reads this......hehehe) around makes me feel so good and yes,,,,,,,SAFE.


You know what.....it was over....so fast....I had the most wonderful feeling pushing the baby out. Can't describe it BUT I loved the moment. Would I go through it again? Hmmmmmmm.........give me 2~3 years,,,,,,maybe......just maybe......before I turn 40....hehhehe!
