My unexpected Merdeka Baby!
Hello! I’ve been away unexpectedly as my baby decided to pop out 3 weeks earlier into this world.
See, my ‘watermelon’ is not supposed to be born yet…
Just on Friday, 30 August 2013, I was at my sister’s place as my parents were in town for a wedding the next day. As usual, whenever my mother comes to town, she’ll cook up a storm for us. I was happily eating with every single family members present in my elder sister’s place. We went home close to midnight when I got the news that Klang Valley is under the threat of diesel spill and water supply being cut off. I checked my water supply to see that we still have water so I quickly proceeded to wash Darling’s working clothes in the washing machine.
I went up to bathe while the washing machine was still running when I suddenly felt warm water gushing out from ‘down’ there. I panicked thinking that I just peed without realizing it! How embarassing I thought! Just as I was telling Darling what was going on, I ‘leaked’ again. I called my sister asking her how it felt when the water bag burst but she has never experience it before. I googled and the first thing I got was Google telling me – The Baby Is Screaming “Mommy I’m Ready To Come Out!!!” That wasn’t helpful at all. So I stood up to tell Darling when colorless and odourless water flowed SO MUCH wetting the entire floor!
It was 1am. We panicked and immediately Darling told me to prepare to go to the hospital. He woke Ethan up and thank goodness I’ve already prepared my hospital bag just a couple of days earlier!
Darling drove me to the entrance of the Emergency ward and they offered me a wheelchair but like bodohs I insisted to just walk in! When they heard that my water bag burst, they insisted for me to sit on the wheelchair and wheeled me into the Labour Room.
Immediately they monitored my baby’s heartbeat.
The monitor. They also monitored my contractions. They asked me if I’m feeling any contraction to which I answered, “NO” but they said according to the chart, I am having contraction every 10 minutes! OMG! I don’t even know how contraction supposed to feel like! >_<
Finally after checking and confirming that my water bag has indeed broken, they told Darling to do the necessary to admit me as the baby will need to be taken out within 24 hours.
At 2.55am on the 31 August 2013 I was officially admitted waiting for labour.
I was put on drips. By 10am, they checked again and though I was having contractions and all, my cervix wasn’t open for labour. By 11am, I was wheeled into the Operation Theatre for a C-Sec.
Thank goodness my eldest sister brought my parents over and all of them accompanied Ethan while Darling went into the OT with me.
After what seemed like an eternity in the OT, I finally get to kiss my little Prince. We are not actually that fair skinned, it’s just that the lights in the OT is extremely BRIGHT!
My niece took this photo of my second baby boy shortly after birth.
Ethan and his grandpa with baby.
This little boy is an exact replica of his big brother.
Everybody was shocked when I announced the arrival of my second son on Facebook as not many are aware that I was pregnant. Some even asked me why the silence. I shall stop here as I have to go get some rest but I’ll definitely continue with the story of why I kept the pregnancy to myself and only announcing the birth of my baby.
Till then, I’m sorry if I don’t hop into your blogs for the time being. I’m still trying to adjust to the sleepless nights all over again!
