Clearly the title of this post would have said that i have delivered and it is a baby boy… haha .. my baby boy arrived on 27 Sept 2016 … and that happened to be my last gyn appointment that morning..and the story of my second delivery goes like this:

Hub and I went for my gyn check up in the morning … week 39 gestation and i was already feeling heavy and very tired … my doc had given me leave the week before so that i can stay home and rest from work (thou the workaholic me still checks mailbox from home) and because i could popped any time … the following week i start staying at my mom house..

At my gyn check up, the doc has suggested either she do a check on me to see if i am dilated and if not, she could do a membrane swap to see if it would trigger the contraction to commence. Alternatively, we could choose to wait till Saturday to do a membrane swap. As i am really getting too heavy and tired, i just told the doc to do it.

I had no idea that my doc had such magical hands and the swap actually “jump-start” my contractions that evening. I was already feeling slight discomfort after the swap was done and i had tot that it was all normal (that’s what the doc told me that i would feel slight discomfort and there would be slight bloody discharge) … Contractions had started to get more frequent in the evening around 4 plus (and i had thot that it was just normal… i did not realise that it was actually contractions) … i tot that it was all normal as it was the same pressure slight pain that i had been feeling the past few weeks …

By 6 pm … the pain was starting to get unbearable … and that was the time my mum reminded me that it might be contractions and that the baby may be coming … then i start to call my hub (who was at work) … he was on the way back home…so i had a quick bath and dinner .. Hub reached home around 7 .. had a bath and quick dinner and off we went to the hospital (my mum was still hurrying him to quicken his pace) … the pain was really unbearable and i could barely walk…i think i was moaning all the way to the hospital while in the car …hub was driving pretty fast i think … i couldn’t concentrate very well and barely remember telling him to drive slowly and carefully (thou i wished for the hospital to reach soon)

We reach the hospital around 8 plus … a security uncle push me (in a wheelchair) up to the delivery ward .. hub had to park the car .. I got changed .. and off i was waiting for my epidural ..Epidural was the first thing i told the nurse that i needed it upon reaching the ward … the standard routine checks was conducted… all i remember was the nurses asked me some questions , i asked my hub when is the doc coming for my epidural, the nurses asked me to tried the laughing gas … my first time trying it .. i did not tried it during my first labour… it was not really very good .. i can still feel the pain … it just makes me groggy … there’s once i think the pain was too unbearable and i breathe in a huge amount of laughing gas … that makes me feels slightly out of the world .. disconnected … did not hear my hub or any other sound except my own breathe and the baby’s heartbeat from the monitor … slightly frighten me and then i decided not to use too much of the laughing gas until my epidural comes …

Finally the doc came with my life saver – the Epidural, my gyn also arrived soon after i gotten my epidural.. this time the doc that gave me the Epidural was a lady …my first time i remb was an old uncle (he’s slightly more experience i think cos this time i can feel the needle poking into my spine … sounds scary huh …) after the dose, my gyn checks me and told me that we are only 1 – 2 cm dilated and that the baby would most likely be delivered the next morning …. she told us to get some rest tonight…

Once the epidural takes effect … it was like heaven .. i managed to catch a nap … the nurses went in and out of the ward a couple of time check on me and the baby … one of the nurses told me that i was having slight fever and the doc was informed and i was prescribed with panadols … i remb i was having fever during my first labour too …

it wasn’t long that the midnight shift nurse came to check on me … and asked me to try pushing… the next time i know was that she told me that the baby is ready to come and she’s going to inform my doc … and when we were informed .. it hasn’t even past midnight … i was slightly shocked that the waiting game this time was pretty short… the first one i remember we waited almost the whole day before i am able to push…

Doc came within half an hour .. she was also amazed i guess as we had assumed it would be the next morning … the doc and nurses prep themselves.. hub preps himself with the hp on video mode (yesh…at my request for personal experience, we video-ed the delivery this time and i’m glad we did) … the next moment the doc informed that i can start pushing… within 1 push .. the baby is out… a fast delivery … all of us were amazed … baby was a whopping 3.8 kg …

Hub and I were glad that baby boy came out fast and health… i was then wheeled to the 2 bedded ward (again .. cos full house once more time …) Hub cannot stay with me (again) and had to go home (well at least both of us got to rest)….

the feeling of being a mother of two was surreal then …but as i was writing this post … i’m wondering whether am i capable to be a good mother to a 3 yo active toddler and the challenges of taking care of a newborn on top of moving house in the next two months and also commencing my degree course next year …

I just pray that everything will be smooth sailing for our family of four now …

 

 

 

 

 

It has been a pretty hectic year since the start of 2016 for me … i have started on my degree course last July …and tomorrow  I will be having my first exam paper …. oh how i hated the tots of having to go for the exam…. i don’t think i’m well prepared for it at all …. starting to doubt myself on what i have gotten into for starting this degree …. i just pray for a smooth pass now..

Furthermore, there has been so many things happening at the same time…. we are moving house … found our new apartment at CCK .. not too near neither it is considered far from my parents’ place … the shift was mainly for my daughter … she’s growing up so fast and we missed so much of her growing stage thus, now we want to move nearer so that we can bring her home every day…and accompany her … sometimes i really missed her naughty little face.

Then, beside the degree and the new house, we are pregnant with our 2nd child. Ain’t this crazy …. I’m currently into 19th week …. feeling so tired every day … My daughter was happy to have a sibling… we were also glad … it was in the plan but i didn’t expect it to be this soon. Perhaps that’s life, expect the unexpected as always.

Anyway .. enuff of my rubbishing … i have to go back to the piles of notes for tomorrow … wish me luck … that’s something i’m desperately in need of…

 

I have been lazy .. a fact that i cannot deny when coming to managing my blog …. busy is no longer a valid excuse … my memory that always failed me is too an undeniable fact … *haha*

Anyway … most of the events that happened in the early 2015 …be it good or bad… i have …long … FORGOTTEN!!!

Right… that’s all because .. the storage volume of my tiny winy brain is pretty much limited… *LOL*

Anyway … it was really not a very good year up until now…

My baby was sick during her bday … it was really terrible … down with high fever and irregular heartbeat then … the doctor had to keep her warded … both me and my mum had to watch her during her “holiday” at the hospital .. it was not a pleasant stay at all … i have never had a good impression of hospital (until the time when i’m in labor) and with that stay with my baby… it worsen the impression even more …. i hope never to go back again with my baby (except perhaps for my second or subsequent labor)

Career has been going well for me too this year … alot of changes …and it is still going on…. nothing much to comment on my career except … just continue to do what i’m doing i guess…. life nver change work wise…

the new event happening in my life current would be that i’m finally studying for a degree… yes after so long i have finally dump all my “passion” …. my “desire” to get a degree… lets not reveal what degree i am getting now .. since i’m pretty half-hearted at the moment … just in case i don’t get it … haha …

the next big thing to look forward to next year would be …. nope … not a second child … not yet …. but

finally a family trip with my mum and dad and also my baby’s first trip overseas…. we are going taiwan next year …. hopefully i remb to update after i come back from the trip ya …. ok that’s all …

My last post had been in October 2014 .. and now we have stepped into the New Year … times really fly past quickly without one’s knowing …

If you were to ask me what had I done in 2014 … I guess the biggest event would be my departure from the firm that I have worked for 8 years … and joining into a new working environment … starting over at a new environment wasn’t easy at all … not to mention that the new firm had undergo big changes too in 2014 … it takes time accepting new changes I guess…

No resolutions had been made for the new year … I think i’m getting old and no longer motivated … perhaps I wanted a more relaxed pace in terms of my career…. but somehow it doesn’t seems to be working for my industry …

For family and health … its the usual .. hoping that everyone in the family would stay healthy (including myself) …. *sign* the weather has been bad since December … and that worsen my sinus condition…

Hopefully into the new year … my life would be smooth sailing throughout …

Have you ever had this feeling of being “drained out” by work … with life … and with everything other thing…??

I’ve been having this feeling lately … “drained out” mentally and physically…. emotionally sometimes… I would asked myself what am I drained away of ? I have always been the usual me … going to work every weekday … trying to clear as much work as possible…trying to find happiness and enjoyment in the work i’m doing …. and looking forward to the last day of the week so that I can spend time with my child … watching her grow everyday …(erm actually is every weekend…cos I usually only get to spend my weekend with her…) and the routine falls back the same way every weeks…

and as time goes by … i’m starting to find that i’m lacking something….(definitely money is one of the thing everyone is lacking..same goes for me ..but that’s not what i’m trying to say) …something which sometimes I find that I cannot put words into it … or perhaps I’m still looking for that “something”….

Just these few days I seems to grasp and understand what i’m missing…. I’m missing the stage of learning…learning something new … missing creativity …. missing innovation … missing new stuffs ….

I have been in this industry for 8 years … although I cannot say its a long time ..but definitely not short either … thinking back … the past few years back in RT I was still able to learn something new at some point of time …. i’m still able to face new challenges in life … but these two years .. life and work seems to become stagnant … it’s not bad sometimes … ya know … going to work at 9 … ending work at 7 or 8 (occasionally at 9) …. going home and slack infront of the TV … but just too bland? I can’t find the right words to describe my life now … probably i’m thinking too much … asking for too much … too demanding?? I find that I’m in need of learning new stuffs … probably going for a new course … engaging in new work (not corp sec) … but yet i’m worrying too much … too many other factors to consider … can I cope with studies and a child? taking new loan for the studies? do I have the time??

I’m finding myself lost at a junction … at one point with the level that I’m with my current work .. I find myself providing too much …. and receiving too little (not monetary terms .. I have to say my current firm is definitely willing to give good pay) … that’s why I’m feeling drained …. draining of all my knowledge and there has been no input of new knowledge …. now that’s the thing i’m currently lacking …. New Knowledge ….

where should I go … what should I do … to get new knowledge and without jeopardising my current stagnant life too much ….
