The D day...

Finally the day for both of us had been waiting thou we didn't expect that I would delivered in two weeks earlier from the due date..
It started on Monday morning, my pee showed bloody mucus but I didn't realized it until we re backed at the house from the morning walk with Bumble. I already felt the contraction 's starting when we took our mornin walk, it came by 4 mins within and I have to stop walking whenever the pain occured. Backed to the house I was surprised to see lots of blood mucus in the toilet bowl and that's when I knew the time already came.
We went to see our gyneo to confirm about the contraction pain whater it's just false alarm or a real contraction. When doctor told me "your baby already engaged to ur cerviks", I thought I would be delivered in the next few minutes and who had expected I was in 24hr labour pain!!!
I got admitted to the wad soon after meeting with the doctor. It's been a restless hours in the wad waiting for the time Ava would be born. By the clock strike 12 am in midnite, the pain become more increased..I was struggling with the pain, I went out from the room and start walking around the clinic area, doing all sorts of ballet movement while holding the bar..walking alone doesnt make me comfortable..I have to do the squat, strecthing my legs and let out an annoying painfull sounds..on that time I was completely drowned in my own pain, i didnt care the nurse or ppl looking at me.By 2am( I was counting and checking the time all the time), the nurse came over me and asking me whater I would like to have an epidural or not. I did take two jabs of painkiller which only took 30 percent the pain but it didnt work for me ,to make it worst, the effect of the painkiller make me vomitting a few times!!! By 4am the nurse again came in and asked whater I need an epidural, I said no and I asked her to check my serviks whater the dilation already occured or not, noted! a person finger went into your vagina and stucked it very deep, not so comfortable and painful!! especially when the nurse who assisted you didnt have a clue on what she's doin!!! She said no dilation yet but then I alreday felt the pain bcame more increasing disturbing!!!Luckily hubby was there to remain me to keep on doing the yoga breathing, at least it lessen my pain. By 4.30 am I was already screaming in pain and the nurse came in, this time she's very annoyed and asking me WHY I DONT WANT AN EPIDURAL???
Thinking that I my delivery would not come anytime soon, I told hubby I decided to have an epidural thou it was not a good alternative, a bit disapointed hubby informed the nurse I'll be having the epidural, I then was sent to the labour room and all the way I was holding the end of the bed and cannot laying on the bed. At the labour room, hubby saw the Laughing Gas at the corner of the room and requested instead of having the epidural why not we tried the Laughing GAs first, so laughing gas it is, then I noticed there was something came out from the vagina, I looked down and saw a big bubble..well that's what I thought at first, in fact it was the placenta sacks, it already came out half of it!! One of the nurses take a glance on me and gasping, she called Dr.Mattu straight away and informed us the baby head already came out!!Hubby saw the head too..10 mins dr Mattu arrived and it only took about a few mins i did the push and Ava came to our view..it was the most wonderful moment in my life when doctor brought Ava to my lap, all the pain straight away gone. Ava was crying before doctor gave her to me, by the time she's in my lap, she's stop crying and her eyes open looking at me...that's was so amazing and wonderful moment and I kept on recalling it in my mind. One thing for sure I was glad I didn't take the epidural for the effect will take quite long to heal after the delivery and it actually can postponed the delivery. Credit to hubby, you are a very good coach, from the beginning until the end!!! Thanks very much hubby, I love you!!!
