Papa’s Daughter, Mummy’s Darling Girl, KorKor’s Princess

Our girl caught us surprise by arriving on 20 July 2008.

It was an unexpected. It was all started on 20 July 2008 morning when Mummy experience stomach cramp like menstrual pain or like getting diarrhea. It was on and off. We still made it to church but then Mummy was not feeling comfortable to move and decided to rest in the car. Papa and Jeriel went to church. While Mummy was in the car, Mummy decided to sms gynae to ask for advice. He replied and asked Mummy to go to hospital to get check-up in case it was contractions.

Mummy waited until PaPa and Jeriel finished church. Then we went to collect cloth diaper from
Ayesha for Tai Pak Leong (for Orion) and for baby too. Yar..went there first instead of hospital. Mummy wanted to go and visit Paik Ling in the hospital but instead Mummy had to go hospital. (Sorry Paik Ling, your baby’s gift was in the car booth that morning…). After that, Mummy supposed to go for Assam Laksa appointment at Vichelle’s house with Leoni and Sharon…(haiya miss it….)

When we arrived the hospital and went up to the labor ward for check-up, Mummy was hooked up on the machine about 11plus am Mummy was supposed to be on the machine for 30 minutes but instead less than that, the nurse said Mummy’s gynae was on the way because Mummy got contraction. Mummy asked whether can Mummy go back and admit later. Nurse said depends on the gynae. Gynae arrived in his casual clothes because it was Sunday. He did check and said, you crazy woman, he couldn’t let Mummy go back because Mummy was 6cm dilated. Gynae also refused to break the water bag because it would speed up the whole process. PaPa got to rush back to send JL home and collect Mummy’s hospital bag.

Mummy was changed into gown and put medication to clear the bowel. After clearing the bowel, Mummy felt the urge to push. Coincidently a nurse came in and quickly checked and found that Mummy was about 8-9cm. Then she started to scream outside nurse to call back gynae who actually went back home without realizing how fast Mummy going to dilate. Outside nurse tried to call PaPa to turn back to witness the arrival of delivery and even volunteer to babysit JL outside but it was too late.

In order to stop Mummy from pushing, Mummy was force to lie side way and was ask to breath in the gas non-stop to stop pushing. Wow, this really made Mummy drowsy and dizzy. The nurse was great because she encouraged Mummy and also massaged the back to ease the urge to push. Mummy had to ‘tahan’ almost like 4-5 pushes..it was like such a long time. Then the gynae arrive and started to push. He had to do a small episiotomy because baby’s head was big. After 2-4 pushes, AL came out.

She was 3.23kg and her birthday was 20 July 2008 at 12.18pm.

While delivering the placenta, the cord got snap off. Good thing the placenta was at the end that gynae managed to took it out without having to push Mummy to the surgery room.

PaPa received mms photo via handphone from Mummy. By the time PaPa was back to the delivery room, the gynae had left and the delivery room was already clean-up. Imagine how fast the whole process was.

Thanks
Sharon for posting the announcement..also thanks Sue for helping Mummy to get the Bentong ginger (still owe you $$$), yar collected on 19 July 2008 (just one day before delivery)…

Will try to post more on how JL and AL gift exchange session and also a peek on
JL’s hospital bag. How about Mummy’s breastfeeding and cloth diaper challenge? In short, PohPoh helped to cook for Mummy and other than that, the whole daytime, Mummy would be alone with Ariel and night time with PaPa’s help.
