Induced labour

Alhamdulillah, my baby was savely born on 26th January 2010. She is so beautiful and today she is 7 days old.

Here, I would like to share about her birth story. The story is long but I'll make it short, cut here and there so that people will not get bored.

12.25pm: I'm done with the induced procedure. The gynae insert a prostin gel inside my vagina. The experience more or less like this . However, I'm so clueless about the after effect. Actually, its less painful when you lay down compare to walk.

6.30pm: My contractions were still low according to CTG. A nurse reported to my gynae through a phone call and she expected maybe it's gonna be tonite or tomorrow.

7:45pm: The contractions suddenly so intense. It's happen every 1,2 or 3 minutes gap.

9pm: I took a bath before performing Isyak. Konon nak warm bath to soothe my contraction tp air tak warm pun. Then I asked the nurse to put on CTG and after that she checked my opening. At the same time, Nazhan and my husband drove home to take my mom and her maid to accompany Nazhan later when I in labour room. Surprisingly, the opening was just 2-3 cm. She kept asking whether i wanted a pain relief like epidural or an injection at my butt- the injection will make me sleepy.

Aaahh, why did she asked. When everyone arrived and Nazhan already felt asleep, I told them I wanted an epidural and need to go to the labour room. I walked to the labour room slowly with my husband and my mom.

10.30-11.10pm: Arrived at labour room. The contractions were so intensed. I was struggling but managed to calm down while waiting for the procedures to complete while my husband was waiting outside, well thats what i thought.

11.30pm: After 20 minutes, my legs started to feel numb but I could still feel the contractions, a little bit mild than before. The anesthetic specialist told that's ok and then he left. I asked the midwife to turn the CTG so that i could monitor it as well. I told her when i had my first baby, I had a full opening without nobody realized. She ignored my request and said that CTG cannot tell how big is your progress. Then she left and I asked her to get my hp from my husband as he actually not waiting outside but took care of Nazhan who suddenly awoke and cried.

There was another nurse or junior midwife who stayed with me. Just few minutes after, I started to feel a stronger contraction. When I asked her to get the anesthetic specialist, she said he already left. When I kept demanding, she called someone but they gave the same answer.

I hold her hand tight. I asked her to get my husband. She called someone and conveyed my need. Then I feel 'seram sejuk' and told her to checked my temperature as I thought I might had a fever and it could dangered my baby.

11.40pm: The midwife who left before came back. She said my husband took my son for a ride to get him sleep. She then checked my opening and guess what it happen again. I'm all set as my opening was full. I asked her to call my gynae immediately and somehow I started to cry.

11.45pm: My husband arrived and clueless why I'm crying. My son still outside the labour room alone. I told him I'm ready for labour and send Nazhan away quick. They also gave me 'gas' and that's help a lot. I started to calm down slowly. I told the midwife that's my water still not brake yet and as usual she told me not to border about all that.

My gynae arrived. I could feel the baby slowly came down. At this moment, I didn't feel any pain at all but I could feel the baby pushing herself slowly and smoothly and people around me could see her head. When Doc told me to push harder, I told her I did not push yet. So she started counting and I started pushing. However I'm not pushing hard enough and she told me to cough few times. Only then the baby succesfully came out at 11.58pm. Fuuhhh..

I'm so thankful and relief for the save delivery until I forgot to ask whether the baby is a boy or a girl. Only after a while, when the doc asked "Scan dulu apa ya?". My husband answered " x nampak". Then only I asked "Baby boy ka girl?" and the answered was "Girl". So again and again I kept saying Alhamdulillah for the greatest gift, God had sent to me.

Here are some pictures of her, our little angle, Iris Nazurah Binti Norshaiful Azril. Now, kami sudah berempat :)

Nervousnya kena induced. Masa bersalin baby pertama, hampir kene induced juga. Nasib baik keluar sebelum sempat kene induced :P
