Oh! 🌈Our little one wants to come out earlier, and I wasn’t prepared at all!
On Sunday evening I was still shopping with @rextanym at causeway point with only some slight discomfort, which I thought it was just the so-called pelvic pain. Hence, I endured and continued shopping. By the time we reached home, I was telling him that don’t think I could sleep, so finding ways to ease off the pain if possible. I read googled .. pelvic exercise could ease off the pain. So, I did a light pelvic exercise for about 10 mins. Then subsequently went out to the living room to take a breather. As the times passes by, the pain seems more and more obvious, non-stop intervals🥵. I even texted my mummy friend Renee at wee hours to ask. I recorded the interval for an hour from 2am - 3am. It seems to kick in every 5 mins. I called up the hospital and checked with them whether it’s e REAL contraction. The nurse advised me to go down and have a check instead.
I often heard that dilation takes about 10-20 hours for 1st pregnancy so slowly take my own sweet time preparing, showering, eating toast bread.. etc. .By the time we reached the hospital was about 6am. First thing first, the nurse checked on my dilation and then she made a surprised remarks “Dear, God has been very kind to you, you have dilated 7CM already”.😱 Rex and me exchanged an astonished eye contact and at the back of my mind, I was thinking of epidural which I need it for sure! Luckily my gynae is understanding, She has given the green light. I will curse at my hubby if i couldn’t get the epi on time as he demanded for more sleep for a seminar to present at noon! .
To cut it short, It took me about 4 hrs plus to deliver our little one, Kyra. I am thankful for the blessings and Kyra has been really co-operative as the pushing took me 30mins! Mommy & Papi will dote on you more Kyra👧🏻 #Pregnancyjourney #motherhoodsg #sgmama #38weeksDay1 #blessed #Happymama
