Baby came EARLY!
anyways, just to share, my gynae did not help with the delivery
the midwife on duty was really good.
i pushed for 30 mins and out came my son
but of course, the labor pain lasted for hours
im curious if im paying for the gynae or not
im waiting for the bill to come then i can make noise with my raging hormones
she did walk into the delivery room, but i refused to be "touched" by her....well i was in alot of pain, going crazy...one moment logical another moment insane
so we shall see
For what i know, even the doc did not help to deliver they still charge the doc fee to your bill. (told by cousin-in-law)
Hopefully it does not charge as the doc did not help at all...
well, in some of the other threads i posted, i think some of you are aware that i have had two false alarms...for me , back then if baby was born premature, alot of medical costs...so i chose b2plus ward
then logic was that , being a tps patient, my gynae will only attend to me if i choose b1 or a1
so that day, i really dont know why she appeared in the delivery room...well, she is so called the principal doctor on my discharge summary..so we shall see
cos i dint take any admission package..meaning I DID NOT book her to deliver hahaha...
anyways, i did not take epidural (boast boast)
i had slight water leak about four am....i thot i cldnt control urine..so embarrasing
but hubby mom and i went macs to have breakfast, then about six forty five, check into delivery ward and no food onwards
not that i was in hte mood for food
my cervix was closed , so gynae on duty inserted a pill to stimulate contractions...that was eight am
by 2 pm, if i were not dilated..then must put another pill or even c-sect
by 11am or so, start to have cramps...now i know how terrible cramps feel cos back then i never had menses cramps
by 4pm was really really terrible
pain pain pain on and off
uttering alot of rubbish. screaming . and i only used laughing gas after 3pm..initial part i tried to tahan everything
then finally baby came at 2020hours
about 12 hours of labor pain
baby came out fast....i only need to push for thirty mins
to be honest, it really does feel like passing motion
lucky no sh0t came out...else baby face sure super dirty
wa!!! you r very brave !!! obscurestloh. i hope i can be like you
Hi the charges at TPS is around $70 plus per visit. not including medicine yet.
by the way any mothers have advise for this : does the Doctor need to be around when you are waiting to be delivered, say if you are in hospital waiting for the pelvic to dilate and open for the baby to come out, does the doc need to be around during the few hours of labour? I need advise as this is my 2nd baby but I am trying for natural birth, and Kandang Kerbau Hospital actually has 2 charges, with doc around or without, ie, doc will only come when the baby is 'about to come out'. pls advise anyone...
labor pain started about 11am to 12nn....doc on duty inserted this pill at 8am to induce dilation as my cervix was closed while there was water leak
well, unlike movies, my water bag leak as if i cannot control my urine. bit by bit...
so the plan was that by 2pm if my cervix was still closed, there wld be another pill or conisder for C -sect
you see, to me the docs on duty knows what they are doing...cos they will have a main consultant on duty....
as for my gynae at TPS...she walked in about 4.30 till 5pm and said wanted to check how much i was dilated...by then i was already in alot of pain cos i insisted on NO epidural.... and about 3ish, someone did check on me and said im about 3cm...i knew i was going for a long marathon....and i was shouting alot etc
still yet logical, out of mixed emotions, i shouted DONT TOUCH ME...in mandarin...hahaha
then she dint get to touch me...is she gonna bill me or not i dont know...cos i converted to a public paitent by warding into b2plus...but yet her name appeared in my forms....we shall see
that would be about 12 hours of labour pain
by about 7 p...they said im about 6cm dilated i can choose to epidural if i want (?????what???) and i just said "Stop asking me about epidural already...thank you for offering but i ..." then i started shouting
it really comes and goes , the pain..and one moment im logical the next i am shouting ....and i was taking the laughing gas
finally at 7.50pm the midwife said im ready to push...much earlier than what hubby and i expected...cos he kept encouraging me...1 hour 1 cm...10pm darling...but at 7.50 nurse said can start...so fine....and my hubby was totally shocked when baby poped out...all so fast....and its recorded 2020hours
30 mins for the final part
12 hours of madness
after about week 32 of preg....i didnt have faith in my gynae anymore
like...why am i paying so much to see her for every check up when she doesnt really seem to care
i know everyone's bz....but everyone's got a role to play
so my question to you is.....do you think its useful to have your gynae around?
well, i think they will only be called at the final stage to come and help carry the baby? and definitely to do the sticthing
my stitching was done by a very young male gynae...hubby was around, so i dint feel awkward, plus all the pain, and i was bz watching the newborn...who cares who was stitching me...but hubby said the guy was rather clumsy...but yet three of us managed to chat in btween the not so painful part of stitching
yes, the stitching did hurt...for me
mine was already leaking when i went in
was there a need to burst?
i dont remember
so far, most of my peers had theirs burst at the beginning as most them have longer delivery wait... ...i just went in n baby pop out within 1-3hrs -- didn't even take my drip or painkillers for my 2nd one (very primitive labour haha). me so scared my 3rd one will deliver in the taxi!! haha, me hav been thinking of pre-arranged delivery... ...!!
it was quite a funny situation
you see for about 3 nites i wasnt sleeping early...so hubby kept complaining baby wil become nightowl etc
then on wednesday night....same thing...i was watching tv...surfing net. then finally about 3am plus...wanted to sleep...then i felt the sensation to pee...so i went
then i was done, went back to bed....the same sensation cameback
i touched my berms ...eh how come wet wet...crazy ...kena incontinence...
cos no pain at all...and ive already had 2 false alarms...what to do?
ok. nvm change shorts, go back sleep.... then 10 mins. felt the same thing...
so i stood at the toilet for a while...considering if it was pee that i cld control...
i woke husband up...
then we decided that its different from movies...no major gush..its leaking...lets go hospital and see what doc says
so in the car, i sat on a plastic bag, and between my legs was a very thick bath towel
but we detour to buy macdonald's from bugis first
please take note Kandang Kerbau Hospital MACS IS NOT 24 HOURS!!!!!!!
any MTB signed up for the prenatal courses at Kandang Kerbau Hospital?
Is prenatal course necessary? I didn't sign up for it for my first preggie. Actually while spending my 4d3n stay in Kandang Kerbau Hospital, there was free courses by the nurses at the ward on how to handle baby (bathe, feed, burp, etc) and you can ask any questions even on breastfeeding. The nurses came around knocking to ask us mommies well enough to join in.
