@ KKH - (I was still smiling and enjoying myself) hey.. it's still very mild.. so had to go to the obs room.. where.. I got the shock of my life when the woman doc just probed
@KKH2 - Taxi uncle can ask if we are in emergency.. obviously from my cringing expression! Oh btw, it was raining badly. Ayway, @ 24hr clinic, I was wheeled to the delivery suite immediately while hubby registered for me. Midwife told about the various pain reducing methods: Gas, jab or epidural. I thought I could handle the pain.. so opted for natural birth and gas. Didn't know that I can't take the jab when I'm dilated more than 3cm. So when the pain got really bad, I asked .. no, screamed for epidural while hubby was forcing the gas on me. Btw, I vomited violently after taking the gas - emptied my tummy of everything! Anyhow, to have the epidural, my waterbag had to be broken and when it did, the contractions came in torrents in 1 min interval. I couldn't stand the urge to push.. and when the anaesthetist finally came (was VERY SLOW!) and after she explained the consequences, etc. , she found out that I don't need it coz the baby's head is already there! Urgh... so I pushed @ 5-6cm dilated and the baby came wailing out @ 11.33am!
The patch up job was BAD - I had a 3rd degree job for 1.5hrs. Had their snr consultant to do it also coz there was a hidden vessel that burst in my rectum. In fact, it was bad enough that if they don't find this vessel, I would have to go into Op Theatre. But they did, so it was done! Trauma... Ended.
