Boys... boys... boys... and girls

I hereby declare that boys are lusty from birth! It's in their genetic structure make up. Why? Coz of firsthand experience.

My son refused the expensive special premature milk I gave him.. he insisted on the au naturel breastmilk... *giggles* He makes this cute grunting sound when he suckles and when it's not enough? Get ready for mayhem! He'll get upset and throws tantrum until he tires out and sleeps... peace again... that's what I'm blissfully having as I refuse to entertain tantrums. Hear that, Adam??? You can ask your sis on how bad and heartless I am. I don't give no face to any tantrums, screams and shouts... you do it outside? I'll leave you there... Watch me do it... if you dare :) Fair warning.

Oh yeah, I had a nice time shopping... will wear my new shoes tomorrow for Adam's check up. He's getting his BCG vaccination.

Amelia's not at home tonight. She's bunking over at her grandma's. Nice for me. :)
Got her to go to school to start on Jun 23. Heheh... She can't wait to go to playgroup. She's soooo happy...

Oppps... the son's awake..


I'm bored. I detest staying at home... yes, I can sleep (since I don't get any shuteye at night thanks to baby Adam), can blog and do all the nonsense I've dreamt about ever since I started working. But a good 20days stuck at home without going out (albeit all the shopping trips with my hubby, the medical check ups etc.) is driving me insane.

BTW... I read that Jason Dohring's dad is the CEO of Neopets... fancy that... hahaha...

See how bored I am???

Anyway.... I'm going out later to Whitesands with Amelia... We'll go shopping ok baby girl? giggles....

And I'm not out of my confinement period... don't tell my parents... grrr...

Continued from prev...

Back at it folks. Continuing where I left off...

After my son was whisked off to the NICU, I was left to be stitched up. To be honest, I didn't feel much pain, but the local anaesthetic was not working as well as the previous delivery. Or is it that my adrenalin has drained off. Although I felt every stitch, it was more like ants biting so the pain was bearable. It was more of a nuisance. So ladies out there, better to opt for natural delivery... I'll tell ya why shortly.

As I was to stay in bed for a good 6 hrs and I was in the maternity ward at 6am, I can't get up till 12nn. Boredom struck in hard! Can't move or get up so I satisfied myself with a whole lot of reading.. the newspaper from article to article, ad to ad, obituary to obituary. I devoured everything.. including the menus and the whole lot. A nurse took pity and gave me more magazines to read... Thank the LORD!

Oh yeah... during the long wait, I managed to hear my neighbor, who had a c-sect, whining and moaning over her pain when the nurses had to clean the wound. Reminded me much of my prior experience where my neighbor in KK also had her c-sect. I thank ALLAH that I didn't have to go through the emergency c-sect. Imagine... apart from the pain below, I'll have to endure the cut across the tummy. Or maybe not cause the pain is just in your mind and I'll probably be walking about in the first day... hmmm....

Anyway, after the hot shower I had on the first day immediately after the 6hrs confinement and the long power nap I had later (cut me some slack, I fought for my life without any sleep the night before :P so I deserved the 4hr power nap!), I was fresh and went about waiting for my hubby who went to take photos of Adam in NICU. I'm such a pathetic thing... can't see my son in the first day except through photos... but I had a good time with him the next day... You see, I spent most of my time there visiting my son :) since I had not much guests. Good thing too... only had my gfs, Tina & her baby Nadia, and Azlyha with her baby. Tina and I had a good time chatting away from 3pm to 8pm. Poor Nadia was hungry.. hehe... I'll remember how I fed her with tau sar pau... hahaha

Finally, I have to say this:

My heartfelt thanks goes out to the midwives that took care of me like a princess during the labor, the doctors, specialists and nurses that helped my Adam to retain his health and the nurses in ward 3A.


Delivery Experience - Read on!

Date: 03.04.08
What did I do?
Not much - went to work. Cleared my work... and oh yeah, managed to close one of my cases. I was so elated that I decided to email my TLs with my workload and so forth. Honestly, I had no idea that it is to be a more eventful day and night.

In fact, I managed to eat my much wanted baked rice. Wanted to have it at Swensen's but there were none in TM so I settled for Delifrance much to my gastronomical delight. Why? I had a good service there... sat at a very nice four-seater by the window with comfy seats. The waitress know a preggy needed the comfy seats for my tummy and back. A big thanks to you!!

Oh I ordered the seafood baked rice. It was super delicious that I need not ask for any sauce nor tobasco or parmesan cheese. I tell ya that it's delicious. The rice was also just nice and the prawns, fish and other ingredients were FRESH! The capsiciums were also sweet. Nice huh? Anyway, had my fill. Walked to CS and got Amelia nice dresses. She's now into dresses you see... When I actually reached my in-laws' place, it was 9pm +. Luckily I was at my in-laws for an event :)

10pm - had cramps; like those you have when you need to pass motion. I keep going in and out, in and out... but there was nothing to pass out! Told my hubby - guess what he said - wait till there's blood or the waterbag burst. Since I was not in excruciating pain, I left it at that. At 11pm - called hubby again and told him to go home.

00:24am - admitted to Hospital. Happily smiling around :)
1am - still not dilated much. Abt 3cm? I think... Oh BTW, the 2 mid-wives were senior man! Like my mom's age :) So cute huh?... Back to story... Happily taking photos with hubby. The baby's heartbeat was low so I had to go on oxygen. My BP was 180+ so the nurses were worried if there was pre-eclampsia. I enjoyed this moment *sniggers*
2am - Me sleepy... I slept... Hubby took my photo sleeping.. giggles..
3am - urgh... contractions!!! Got my panthadine already so pain is not that bad and I wasn't on the 'laughing gas'.
3.30am - doctor came. Dilated only 4cm. The baby is very small. The baby passed motion in the womb. Oh no! Not a good sign... I'm to be wheeled to OT for an emergency c-sect. My look? Shocked! Another pain area I have to worry...
4.15am - to be put on the trolley to be wheeled over to OT when I screamed, "I want to shit!" Hey... it really felt like I wanted to shit... hahaha... The midwives acknowledged that I'm fully dilated. My gynae rushed over and he just managed to catch my baby who swam out with the waterbag. But...
4.27am - Adam was delivered.... he was blue... he was lifeless... he made no sound... Both my hubby and I thought we lost him... *tears* The paed on standby and the other midwife swung into action. Managed to resuscitated him after several minutes. Hubby said that he only opened his eyes and closed them again. He was then being shifted to the NICU....

Story to be continued... sorry folks... Adam's awake :)
