Hi ladies!! Been so busy didn't manage to catch up on this thread
I myself popped on 6/6/13 & baby girl was a thumbs up despite the numerous scare sessions with gynae about her being small and all. Had early contractions but admitted in and induced. It was a fast labour yet again but still scary that baby might come out as code blue...nevertheless, a slight 2.3kg at 38wks and all that matters to me is that she is good & healthy She didn't have to stay in hospital longer and discharged same day as me! Happy mum to three here! Hehe...my labour war story went like this:
12.30am 6/6/13: Contractions were regular but wasn't getting any stronger so to be safe, husb drove over to hospital like a mad man even tho I told him to chill. My man was prolly afraid i'd give birth in the car hahahahaha
12.40am 6/6/13: Reach hospital, skipped triage, admitted immediately since my contractions were regular. Strapped to CTG machine amd monitored till 4-6am plus. I dozed on/off thru the dull pain. Oh yes, DULL pain.
6.00am 6/6/13: Dr said my contractions were still considered early as I've only dilated to 1cm so ping-pong-ping-pong, Dr induced me at 10am.
10.00am 6/6/13: 1st pill in & told to wait. Go back ward but since it was full, waited till 2pm.
2.00pm 6/6/13: Lunched & then slept thru while they strapped CTG machine again. I slept thru 10mins apart contractions. Ok, not so bad.
5.00pm 6/6/13: Whoa...regular strong contractions, kanchiong nurse told me to hang on for my second induction pill at 6pm but I told her cannottt...baby is coming already and I know it!
5.45pm 6/6/13: Kanchiong nurse sent me back to delivery suite and there they asked me if I wanted epi or not. Like a warrior, I refused (huge mistake...)
6.45pm 6/6/13: I started going crazy and demanded for thigh jab, Dr say cannot as I was 3cm dilated already. So I asked for epi, the anaesthesist took his own sweet time to come and by then...
7.00pm 6/6/13: Dr say I cannot take epi already (!!!!!!) as I kept bearing down with each contraction. Dr said if I die die want epi, I must stop bearing down (pray tell, how am I suppose to stop when it's my body's normal reaction!? Baby coming loh!
7.25pm 6/6/13: I was begging for any kind of pain reliever but they kept telling me to suck that damn gas. I refused because I was blacking out from it! Dr was preparing for me to go for c-sect as I was only 3cm dilated still!
7.30pm 6/6/13: Midwife came, saviour in disguise, came in, took over like a military leader, shoved her hands in and manually opened up my cervix & told me to push and push hard! It was like she knew my body could deliver the baby w/o c-sect and pushed I did!!
7.40pm 6/6/13: My gal was born and screaming her lungs out! Phewwwwwww.
Viola! My drama-mama labour story for my #3 LOL! No pain reliever of any kind 'cept for that stupid gas thingy. Oh well, it is something to remember...hahahaha
So yeah, been a crazy one week plus looking after my tiny screamer (oh yesss...petite one but bellows like an angry gorilla! Lol!) so finally manage to come back here. Congrats to those who have safely given birth in this early June days and jia you to those who have yet! May all of you have a blessed time with your babies (or in time to come). Welcome to motherhood June mummies!
