Hospital: Mt Alvernia
15 Oct supposed to be my edd.. no sign of labour no sign contractions, after discussion with hubby, decide to induce labour & let him see the world on 16 Oct.
2.30PM: Insert tablet to induce labour
feeling pain...... approx 6 hours later....
10PM: Admit to Mt A.
was brought to a room with 1 bed.. surprised thought they made a mistake.
Me: Nurse, I booked a 2-bedder...
Nurse: This is the labour ward, my dear..
( So paisae, cos i thought a labour ward is like those surgery room got glass got alot of equipment that kind..1st timer...lol)
Changed to robe, urine test, blood pressure.
Insert the fluid into my ask-hooo... wah...
Nurse: If can, wait to 5-10mins then go toilet.
I was thinking, try to hold it as long so can clear as much bowels.. i stare at the the ticking clock...5mins was like forever..not to mention 10mins.. i rush to toilet.... sooong~~~~~
Glucose drip & CTG
A drip to further induce labour
12AM: Mr Epidural is here... brush something onto my back...very chilling...i was shivering non-stop... dont really like the process on the injection, think back... but without it, i doubt i could make it.
"Epidural is the best thing that men created for women"
Follow by, gynae come burst my water bag....
2AM to 6AM: Dim lights, me & hubby catch some winks...Nurses come every half hourly to check on CTG, blood pressure.. regular checking of cervix dilation...
It was a busy night, cos got a few delivery going on...but nurses here were very professional & very nice.. so thumbs up~!!!!
7AM: Nurses standby me for gynae..it almost time... i am fully dilated....got a feeling like wanna ta-pien, cos baby head is very low...
i am still abit loss, thought i am still dreaming... nurses guide me about pushing & breathing technique....
7:45AM: After 3 sets of 3 pushes.... baby is out!!!!
So happy & relief...everything seems like a dream....
