Introducing my new baby....

Born at 1850, 27.07.2007 and weighs 2.97 kg. First two pics show first few minutes after birth. The 3rd, the first tear I saw and the 4th, he is ready to go home. Isn't he beautiful, look at the nose...gorgeous,isn't he. Ok, ok enough of that!

And now the birth story....
I'd been getting intense but irregular pain in the evenings the whole of last week. Didn't really bother me. We were late on Friday morning, and hubby in a way to avoid going to work seriously asked me if I had the pain. I had very mild but a bit regular. Today is THE day, he announced.
We sent the kids to the babysitter, went to my office to settle the last few things, had a HUGE breakfast and reached the hospital at 11am. But the pain just dissapeared.

Asked to be checked, anyway. I was 2 cm dilated. Without the pain I thought I better went back to the office but my doc just said a firm "no". Anyway, we actually were influenced by the nice date for our boy's birthday;). The ward was full and the put us right away in a labour room.

12.30 pm, the doc broke the water. Still could make a joke about it, and no pain till 3 pm. I brought my notebook in the anticipation to blog in the hospital, but hubby spent his time playing around with the camera in it, we were in our usual jovial mood when no one else was there and took some pics of funny faces.

4 pm came the drip. The nurse wanted to give me the pethidine right away, I refused as I just wanted to talk and I know I'm not proud of the way I behave under its influence. Got myself ready for some real pain. Got a bit serious, and talked to hubby about another way people give birth that I just knew was hypno-birthing, on how at one time I wished I could give it a try and why I thought I had to let it go. He talked about pharoahs and egyptian civilisation, related them to some surahs in the Quran...that's my husband;).

5pm the pain came, 5.30 I wished I could go to sleep and wake up when it was over. I hate the pain, but I don't exactly remember. You know the hormone, oxitocyn the one that people call love hormone. It works well on me, I don't recall the pain until the very moment I'm in labour again. Asked for the pethidine.

All I remember, after that the pain came hard without no rest in between. It was just different, the next thing was the urge to push and hubby was trying hard to cover my mouth with the gas mask (told him to do that earlier, I don't want to be too loud of course;)).
I remember the doc asked me to push gently, and I heard she said "Alhamdulillah..." just after the head was out, that was enough to calm me. Then, a loud wail and a "PLOP" on my tummy. He calmed down right after being covered, I was too busy looking at my beautiful baby, on how he looked exactly like Bea3 and thanking Allah over and over. And then suddenly, I saw his bird and let out a giggle...he is really a BOY;).
He is a really calm baby, maybe he is just so used to the chaos even when he was still in utero. Or maybe because besides us, he was also greeted with surah Al-Kahfi that was being played in the labour room. That is familiar to him as hubby played that a lot during my pregnancy.
It was a smooth delivery after all, and again I thank you for all the wishes. I'm now at my kampung, doing confinement. With a lot of things being taken care of, think I will have a lot of time to blog, now that I have the access. Watch out for more...hehe!
