hi mummies, here is my labour journey, deliver at Mt.A.
2pm - my EDD supposed on 28 May, plan to have natural, but gynae said water is
getting lower n must deliver asap, so afternoon rush to the clinic let gynae to break
the water bag, after that rush to hospital.
3pm - reached hospital, nurse help to shave, clear the bowel, change to labour dress,
check temperature, put me on drip. from now on, cannot take any food, only sip of
water to wet the lips. Nurse asked me is there any medicine i need to use later like the
epidural, thattime i was still vry confident said i dont;t want epi, just opt for laughing
4pm - everyrthing settle, lie down on bed and wait. no contraction yet, so very
happily chatting with hubby.
430pm - first contraction came, still can bear of it.
445pm - few more coming, ok, i bear, not more than 10 wave of the contraction, i
ask for laughing gas, another 2 more contraction with laughing gas, even with the
help of the gas, but i still feeling like dying soon, i dont;t know how to describe the
pain, but it really can kill me, that time the pain level was only 50+ ( there's a monitor
to show baby heartbeat and the contraction wave, the nurse said the contraction pain
can go up to 127, crazy man) i cannot TAHAN anymore, i ask for epidural, my gynae
laugh at me after that cuz i took epi, i am always told him i dont;t want to take epi.
i told my hubby i want in NOW, cuz i am almost out of control of the pain, well, nurse
said need to wait 30 mins, /fainted. NO choice, keep using the laughing gas , make
myself half conscious.
5+pm - epidural finally taken, althought i am very afraid of the injection, but this is the
first time i am dying for it. bend myself curl like a shrimp, cannot move, but after the
first dose of the medicine been injected to my spine, i can't help to shiver. the doc
and nurse shout at me, CANNOT MOVE ! i cant control . mummies pls make sure you
dont move during the injection, it could casue us paralyzed. it took 15 to 30 mins
before the medicine start the effect. as other mummies mentioned, it's really a
heaven now. lower part of the body totally numb, even the contraction pain level up
to 120, i only can felt that my tummy is moving, dont;t know is the the pelvic is
expanding or what, can feel the pelvic part is moving. i catch some sleep after that.
by that time, i was alrd very very hungry. shivering non stop as tis is a side effect of the
7pm - checked alrd 9cm dilated, is very fast, continue to wait.
8pm - checked 10cm dilated, midwife said wait until the baby's head go down more.
830pm - start to push, as my lowerpart of the body is totally numb, i dont know how to use
the strength to push, even i push, i also cant feel anything, pushing like more than 10
times, not successful, i got no more strength to push, doc decided to use help with
vacuum as baby's heartbeat drop. finally baby girl arrived at 8.55pm~~ weight 2.6kg.
Gynae said it consider fast labour as it only took 6 hours in total. Praise the God.
9pm - gynae started to push the placenta out and do the stitching. and nurse help to
clean up the baby and me. by this time onwards, i starting to vomit my lunch out, on
n off vomitting until 11pm. cannot eat and drink water yet, afraid vomit again.
Overall the staff there are very friendly and helpful, as i am stay in 4 bedded room and
request for full BF, they will bring the baby every 3 hours to my bed to let me feed her.
