Hi mummies, finally sane enough to update. I was placed on drip at 8.45am, by 9.45, the contraction started getting stronger. By 10.30, I asked for epidural becos cannot take the cramps anymore. Luckily my anaesthesist came at 10.45am and administered the drug. After that, I had this pressure to push and the nurse checked n I was 9cm dilated!!! And I was like 3cm 2 hours ago. So started pushing and after an hr, my boy was born at 12.53pm. Very hard pushing and the cramps, omg.
Anyway after that I was all giddy and suffering from after effects of epidural and the medications. Puked and giddy. Then about 4+, they brought baby in n I tried to latch on more successfully. First time after labour wasn't very successful. Then about 6, tried latching on again becos seems like he wants to suckle though not sure if he managed to suckle anything. I squeezed and there's like two drops of colostrum after he suckled so I dont't know if he had anything but he was crying quite a bit, think he was too cold in the ward so we sent him back to nursery for time being. Will let him latched on again at 8+ later. Hopefully he did managed to get the colostrum.
According to the paed, baby should have sufficient to last him till tomorrow. They will have a threshold, when he loses too much body weight, they will let us know that need to formula feed him but for the time being, Just let him latch on and try to suckle.
So much for now, will update again tomorrow when my giddiness goes off completely. Take care
