the story about the little boy

Hello everyone!

First of all, please forgive me for the very very very overdue update!

and yes, i have safely given birth to my son, Muhammad Aaryan on November the 24th, 2011 at 11.46pm, at KPJ Selangor Specialist Hospital, Shah Alam, via vacuum-assisted vaginal delivery.

why vacuum-assisted delivery?

because, first of all, my labour was induced. i had to give birth at week 39 because of the high blood pressure i was getting towards the end of my pregnancy. doctor said it's not safe to wait until the due date which is November the 30th, so we settled to go into labour on November the 24th instead.

at 3.00pm my obgyn Dr. Siti came to my room and inserted a tablet up my you-know-where. that meant to start my labour. at 5.00pm, i experienced my first contraction. at 6.00pm, it became frequent. at 7.00pm, i couldn't take it anymore, the nurse offered pethidine shot to me. at 8.00pm i was pushed to the labour room and was given the shot there.

i thought pethidine can help me. NO IT DIDN'T! it was probably because my labour was induced, it was not the kind of pain i am supposed to experience. i took gas as well, but that didn't help. what actually helped was the fact that jay rubbed back whenever i feel the contraction, as well as the dua i recited everytime without fail.

so at 9.00pm, my opening was already 8cm. at 10.00pm, doctor was called to come because i was already 9cm opened. then started the shows, my water broke. and the pushing began. jay had to help me 'push' by pushing me forward. at 11.30pm i was still high on pethidine that i couldn't focus to push hard, doctor decided to vacuum my son out. after two pushes, at 11.46pm my little boy finally came out, he was placed on my belly. He weighs at 2.6kg, and measures at 53cm. i touched him and at that instance, i cried tears of joy. then he was taken when jay cut the umbilical cord. right after, jay performed the azan.

so that's my story. part 1 of my story. more to come. i can't continue now, my hands are full! Aaryan is so adorable, i can't leave his side!

until then!
