My Amazing Giving Birth Experience Dec 2017

My due date is estimated to be 9 Dec 2017. That's the answer when everyone around me asking me the same question from time to time. It's like repeating this answer each time a person come and ask me when is your due date? From Family members, relatives, friends and colleagues. It's making me more nervous when the due date is nearer and when it comes to the month of Dec. I am getting more anxious. Looking at the calendar and start counting and even predicting when will my baby want to come out. Getting very tired in the 39 weeks of pregnancy, can't get enough sleep and my mind keep flashing some negative thoughts worrying how is baby doing inside. Also thinking about work will I able to hand over the task within that one week time to train the replacement girl? So many things playing in my mind. I still can walk slowly from the Monorail station to office and I decided to work until 7 Dec since I have to sit and wait at home without any symptom yet.I guess this round I might need to go induce again just like my previous pregnancy. My latest check up on 5 Dec ,the nurse provided me an admission letter for induce on 15 Dec. No dilation, no contraction pain yet and seems the baby bump haven't drop much yet.

6 Dec 2017
I woke up early feeling lazy and told hubby I will follow my colleague to work. At 8.30am, when I want to change my office attire, suddenly I spotted blood stain (light red). Feeling unsure, I took a photo and ask my sis and mum is this is the sign that the baby is coming out soon?I feel excited at the same time thinking my girl birth date will be the same date as our wedding ceremony date.

Funny enough that this experience is same as my eldest girl when there is a blood show at 40 weeks too. My mum replied me with a worry voice that I should pack my things and get ready if there is more blood flowing and not allowing me to go to work. ALRIGHT. So I just wait for the contraction pain and text hubby to stand by. I waited until at night but no sign of contraction, no pain at all.

9 Dec 2017
Waited for two days, still no sign yet but a night before I have unusual cramp. I spotted the blood stain again in the morning but this round is brownish. Yesterday I talk to my baby girl again, please come out soon to ease my pain and sleepless night. Worrying she is too long inside and I can't sleep well too. Today is the due date but yet no symptom at all. Argh..begin to feel abit of frustration and not sure if I should go to Hospital to admit today. My colleague told me that Government Hospital doesn't allow you to admit if there is no contraction and no pain. They will ask you to go home and wait. So after discuss with hubby, I think we should wait another day. The blood stain and brownish only happen in the morning time and night time I do feel a little cramp on my left side.

10 Dec 2017
Again! I woke up with slightly red blood stain and brownish discharge. No sign of contractions. After having breakfast, I check again my bag ensuring all the stuff is inside. I read few articles online that we need to bring original marriage certificate for registration purpose. After our lunch at 2pm, I decided to go Hospital Selayang to check if they can admit me. Hubby agree coz he also haven't go there before and good to go one round to at least to check the place and the parking space. I Pray hard before leaving home, hoping to deliver by today safely and can't wait to see my baby girl.

It took us about 25 minute to reach Hospital Selayang. Hubby park at the open space parking. Ample of parking but almost full. We are lucky enough to find a parking lot. We look for the Wad Bersalin signboard and press to level 5. When I reach the registration counter, I saw few preggy mummies sitting on the chair waiting for their turn. I wonder if they are waiting for the pain / waiting to get a wad space. The registration counter stated all the bed is full.  I am getting worried if I have to sit the chair and wait until there is empty bed to be admit. I have read some post saying their experiences on waiting few hours with pain because there are no bed available. This is my very first time deliver baby in Government Hospital. I have read up some post, getting advise from my friends who have experiences deliver their baby here and keep telling myself that this is the right choice. I also ensure my mum who keep nagging me since day one of getting check up at KKIA and on my decision to choose Government Hospital that everything will be alright. As a mum, of course she is worried because she had heard few unpleasant incident happen to our relatives and cousins.

After registering myself, the nurse ask me to go check up if I have any dilation and check baby heartbeat. They ask me do you bring any sarong?? Ermm..I wanted to bring but I didn't. Even mum in law reminds me bring sarong ya...ok now I don't have sarong. Can I still proceed? Lucky they said can. Open up all pants and underwear. The doc on duty checked if I have any dilation and I am happy when he told me yes..already 3cm. And you are going to be ADMITTED! Glad to hear that I have at least 3cm opening and now I need to check baby heartbeat and do scanning to check the water and placenta. The doctors are very gentile and friendly asking me why I come here today and how I feel.
Checking on my past pregnancy background as well. I already told them that my past record is very fast. My third baby come out when the dilation is 5cm. They ask me to change clothes and get ready to be admitted. I need to wait until 4cm, then I am ready to go into labour room. Nervous and excited. Mix feeling that I have to go through this again. The feeling is just like giving birth for the very first time. All my past memory just flash back in front of me and I just smile to myself ..Yes I Can Do It!!!! Yes I can! Breath in and Breath Out ! And be FOCUS!

4 PM.
Hubby paid RM 350 for the deposit payment for booking a second class bed. Sometime the bed is fully taken up even if is second class. The daily charge is RM 40 while the third class is RM 15. Hubby said we go for a better one at least. If you want the first class which is called FPP the rate is higher and need to prebooked. Our estimated price is only from RM 400-500. After taking blood, I am ready to go to the ward. My ward bed is No.4. This number seems to be my lucky no. as always. My birth month (April), I always get No. 4 in class during primary school time (mum got upset why can't I get no.3 because No.4 there is no award presentation on stage), More faith happening around with this No. 4.

It is a 4 bedded ward. Occupied by other mummies too so I won't be bored. Air conditioning with two toilets. One of the toilet is provided with shower. Hot water is available and the toilet space is quite good. The bed is clean with two chairs provided at the side, a small cupboard with drawer and pleasant environment.

I began to feel the contraction starting slowly. The nurse come in and measure my blood pressure and check on my contraction frequency. I need to count myself how long is the contractions. It begin to start with interval of 20-25 minutes. They also will ask from scale of 1-10 how pain are you now? within one hour time, the contraction is stronger and more frequent. I still can play with my phone text mum and friends, telling them I already admitted and waiting to go into labour room. I can feel it is almost 10-15 minutes contractions and I told hubby let's walk around the corridor.

Another weird thing to be mention is the doctor came two time to take my blood. I ask why? She said my blood reading can't be shown clearly. What?? feeling abit crazy

7 PM
At 7pm, visitors are not allowed to be in the ward area. Hubby need to wait outside while waiting for me to be push to labour room. Hubby are allowed to follow me to labour room later. By this time,the nurse will serve us dinner. The menu is not interesting with fish and gravy, white rice and plain vege. I still need to eat all to have full energy to push later. Starting to miss hubby, I text him asking how he doing outside. Any chair to sit and wait? I was telling him I am bored and why this round the contractions is so slow and it 's going to night time already.

Keep counting the contractions time on my own, looking at my phone and time. 5 minutes...3 minutes..and still waiting. More painful now and I can feel the greater contractions is on the way..I ask hubby to take my best companion..my pillow who accompanied me during my boy delivery 4 years ago. How time flies! I will squeeze my pillow when the contractions comes and gives me comfort. This round I am on my own most of the time. Counting the contractions frequency as the nurse will come and ask me. I keep telling myself to be calm, breath in and out when I feel pain.

8 PM
Doctor came to check but it is still 3cm at this hour. OMG!! What's happening? I thought it could be 4 cm by this time. So upset but still hoping it will dilate faster. I wonder why the doctor didn't break my water? My previous experience in Tung Shin Hospital was going into induce as there is no symptom, and waiting for the contractions and later doctor will break the water. So I guess here is different. They will come and check after 6 hours.You have to wait until the contractions pain to the max that you cannot stand anymore / you feeling the baby head is coming out soon ( the strong pressure).

Now I can feel the blood is flowing out..

10.30 PM
I can't stand it anymore. Waiting with no more patience, i walk to the nurse and ask can you come and check my opening? I can feel the strong pain now. But they insist saying they just check at 8pm. I ask them again please come and check for me.The lady doctor come and check and she said still 3cm. What?? Still 3CM??? Sigh. Then she said I can't ask for checking that frequent because afraid of infection later. I just nodded with my frustration look. The contractions is like 2 minutes. I Continue to look at my phone and text my colleagues, family members and hubby to chat.

11 PM
By this hour, I was thinking will my baby coming out today 10 Dec ? or 11 Dec? Sitting comfortably inside too long already. Contractions is feeling stronger that I could not text anymore. I need to sleep at the side with my pillow. When contractions comes  I can feel some unusual thing. The stronger pressure that I can feel my baby head is coming down soon. I wanted to go down from my bed to call the nurse again, but it is really painful now. Wanted to call help from mummy opposite me but I can't. The emergency button to call nurse is not available in our ward, that's the drawback.I try my best to breath in and out. Very hard breath in and out again few times. I am not sure what is the time by now but the feeling is getting closer that I can deliver soon. I want to call the nurse to push me to labour room, but I can't. The third time I breath when the strong contraction comes, I turn my body from side to middle and open wide my leg. The sense that I can feel my baby head is coming out right NOW!!!!.

I breath in and out...and I do not know what is push until now. From my past experience, I know that when contractions comes just breath in and out. The pressure is so strong and from the last breath in and out, my baby head come out herself with a loud cry and myself screaming holding my both hand tightly on the bed. I just deliver my baby on my ward bed. What? Is this real?? Oh gosh. That was the sweetest moment and I am feeling amazing with my newborn. She is giving me unforgettable experience delivering a baby on the bed itself. Without any complications, medications, and long waiting time for pushing. I am so thankful to god and have this blessing with my cute girl.

The doctor and nurse rush to me and they are in shocked! I just laid down waiting them to clean up my baby and my womb. Placenta was taken out smoothly, and I can feel my whole bed was covered with blood. The nurse ask me what is my painful level. I said zero. Even when the doctor is doing my stitch , I can still take the pain. The most painful moment is over. I am too happy to just look at my baby face. Her face is exactly like my eldest girl. 7 years gap. They look alike each other. All girls look like daddy face. While waiting for the doctor to stitch (lucky is minor tear), I text hubby, family members and friends that I deliver already. Feeling calm and steady. I can still text them - feeling overjoyed with my newborn who safely come to this world. The nurse asking me with curious look. You don't feel pain ?? And you still can text right now? I replied her with a smile. Hubby came in as soon as he saw my message. I can see from his face that he must be thinking his wife is a tough and crazy woman. This round the baby come out unexpectedly fast and not even in the labour room! Wow..seems like a new experience for both of us. 3cm already out!That's why I told hubby the doctor and nurse does not believe me that my baby will come out very fast.

Mummies sitting opposite me had a shocked and saw my baby head come out.She told me she got higher reading of blood pressure when she witness my labour. I think i have frightened her. opss.
I can't explain and describe how I feel at that moment. I thought i will be push to the labour room and wait with hubby to witness our baby girl to come out just like our previous experience in Tung Shin Hospital. I am all by my own. I am very focus, counting the time, contractions feelings and perhaps I have labour experience I know my baby will come out very fast. Stay positive, calm and putting confident to myself and communicating with baby really helps alot.

I burst into tears when I hug my baby girl. She look so adorable just like her two sisters. Looking closely at her and to get the breastfeeding experience again. Bonding time begins...

After all the mess, cleaning up the blood stain and get myself changed, the nurse push my baby to be at my side. I need to take care of her. It is my first experiences too. I have to feed her, soothe her, putting her to sleep, change diapers and also change my pad. Basically, no rest after delivery. My hand keep messaging telling others the good news and I also posted my girl picture in Facebook. When baby cries, I will breastfeed her, check on her diapers and make sure she sleep again. Going in to the toilet few times to clean up myself. The challenge is to bring along the glucose drip that are still attached to my hand. Sleepless night anyway. Feeling happy, excited, and can't wait to go home.

I am lucky enough to have my four babies all helping me to push their way out. Less energy use / pushing process . I am glad they give me less painful experience and have a smooth delivery.

Overall, My delivery in Hospital Selayang is smooth and I am glad I have make the right choice. My bill is only RM 352.  And yes my colleague was right. She told me that I have easy delivery, so just go for Government, save money and with all the good  facilities provided. The nurse are friendly , helpful and nice. There are trainees and senior doctors here. I am not sure if my doctor who do my stitch  is trainees or not coz she is just 25 years old. If to compare with my doctor in Tung Shin, he look more professional. If you ask my advise, I will said that you can choose government hospital if you are expecting second or third baby, but if for first baby I will rather go for a private sector with recommended doctor. Just my sharing of my own thoughts.




Delightfully-scented ENCHANTEUR Gift Sets

There are multiple occasions in a year dedicated to gift giving requiring much thought and consideration by the giver.

My First Visit to KKIA Pasar Moden Gombak

Would like to share my first experience going to check up at KKIA (Gombank branch) after knowing we can get free treatment of check up for pregnancy and also they give vitamins as supplement. It has been there for so long that I did not realize and honestly I did not put much trust on government services especially the nurse. I always thought they like to scold people and not friendly. Few of my friends actually went to KKIA for their pregnancy check up and also for their kids immunization quite frequent and they assure me that their service is good and they provide more than I can imagine off.


So I put my confidence and walk up to KKIA for the first time, reaching there at 6.50am hoping to be the first in the line. The nurse are inside preparing as early as 6.40am. The Clinic is open from 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday. So better be early to get everything done rather than reaching there at 9am. When it reached almost 7.15am, many people coming and they start to queue. There are few benches for us to sit down and wait while some carrying small baby they will wait in the car. Luckily it is located inside the pasar medan Gombak where we can have ample of parking space inside. 


I am getting ready with my identification card for registration. I am nervous and curious on how the procedure. I ask the lady sitting beside me izzit we need to put the card inside and come outside to sit and wait? She smile and said no. Inside have plenty of chair for you to sit to wait for your number and name to be called. At 7.30am sharp, the clinic open the lights inside and I saw all the people stood up and getting ready to go inside. The nurse just waived to us from inside asking us to go in. I was the first to go inside asking the nurse I am first time here and show her my IC. She ask me to fill up the Red Book (Buku Merah), with my name, address, and hp number. Then, she ask me to sit down and wait til they call my name for the numbering. When the door is open, all people rushing inside to put their buku merah in the different types of basket. There are 5 basket all together at the registration counter. With doctor appointment, blood test, 8am, 9am and another one is those Puasa that’s what I heard off. I am abit confused. My friend just ask me put on the 8am basket the next time I come for visit. So as for my case, a new mummy coming for registration for the first time, just go to the nurse and they will guide you. 


The nurse called my name and given me the queue number. I am at No.4 and she said my room no is no.4 (they follow the address you are staying to determine the room no) and she said I need to go to the corner end pink room to take the urine test at 8am. It is called MAKMAL. I sit down and wait for 15 minutes but hubby said hey! Look at those mummy, They are standing there and start queueing already. We shall go right now? But I told him the clock just 7.45am. The nurse told me I need to go there at 8am. So with curiosity and blur case, I walk over and looking around. Those mummy already taken their urine, put their small bottle with urine on the Makmal table and stand there waiting for the nurse to check. I ask the lady infront of me, shall I wait until 8am to take the urine? She smile and said no. You can take now. Inside the toilet, they have empty bottles. When I steps inside, the small containers are finished!. Sigh. No wonder the lady here all come here quickly soon after they register. They already taken their urine and stand there waiting. So everyone have their first time rite? So we waited until the nurse come at 8am sharp. The nurse just dip the tiny paper and asking them to clean the urine and now I can get empty containers. There are only two toilets inside. So you need to take turns to queue. The sink water is too slow. Washing takes time too.


So once the nurse check the urine and given me the small paper, I saw the screen they start calling my number. Just in time! Hubby is seated outside. I go inside the Room 4 and the friendly nurse taking my details and register my buku merah. Inside here there are few nurses. Three to four tables, thus there are almost 3 or 4 patients inside. There are a lot of details need to be filled inside the book. Your past pregnancy details, any complications, your kids details, blood test, checking on hubby blood too for the HIV test, taking my height and weight, husband details, discussing on what to take during pregnancy. When is the last period and expected due date, and after filling up all the details, the nurse check on my breast and she also teach me how to check and symptoms to look for. She also press on my tummy to check on the condition. After that, she check on my blood pressure on both hands. She provides me with Obimin vitamins as I need to boost up my iron supplement. 


Once all done within one hour, she ask me to wait outside to go into the doctor room. They will call the same number, just wait outside. After waiting for 10 minutes, the screen appear my number and we go into room 2. Inside there are at least 3 doctors on the same long table. The doctor checking again the details written clearly in the buku merah and have a short chat with me. She also explain on the family planning method. For the first time, we get to see the doctor and they will do ultra sound scanning. I was nervous again. 
After the past four years, I never thought I have to go through this experience again and the emotional feeling begins when I saw the baby scan print out. Happy, excited, worry and all sorts of emotional feeling. This unexpected gift is really mysterious but I know it is a blessing that I should treasure. Everything happen for a reason. That’s for sure! Taking each steps with positive mind and with parents, family supports I hope I can bravely walking along this journey and enjoy the moment of pregnancy. The recent quote I saw in my sampling packaging ‘ Pregnancy is a beautiful thing’. Yeah it is!


Doctor said now is 12 weeks and 3 days. I need to take more iron supplement and take enough rest. She will be checking me again on the 28 weeks and 36 weeks. She have to record down all the details in the buku merah. The nurse and doctor need to record twice. One copy is for me and one copy if for their keeping. So it takes times too to record all the details.


So I have to wait again for my number to be called to do the blood test at Room 1. And finally this is the last steps. After 3 hours, all done and I can go to work…tiring? Yes..but thinking it cost only RM 1 to get my check up done. Free consultation, free scanning with doc advise, free blood test, free vitamin supplement given. Within the waiting time, The queue never ending and almost all the chairs are full! Children and pregnant lady all there waiting for their turns.


I will said there are quite consistent in attending to our queue and calling our numbers. The nurse are experience, friendly and helpful. The doctors are pleasant looking, soft spoken and nice.


They will set the next appointment date and will call to remind you as well. My friend also told me they will come to home visit once you deliver your baby to check. They also provide free pap smear for mummy. Besides that, the nurse told me we get the chance to check on our teeth if the dentist is there. Sometimes, there are seminars on pregnancy, breastfeeding or how to balance your meal in the clinic that opens to public to attend.


The clinic provides time off for working parents too. Overall, I am glad I have a good treatment here and looking forward for the next visit.
