salam readers.. as i promised to share about my delivery experience, i hope you will gain some knowledge about delivery process since there is a significant difference of approach in UK & Malaysia... before i start my writing, just bare in your mind, previously all my children were born in private hospitals in Malaysia.. here, this was my first time giving birth in public hospital, in UK. so, let's compare.. hihihi..

the contraction started from 4am 18th january 2014.. it was a week break after exam (for those who took exam.. me is excluded) before a new semester begins.. From 4am - 2pm, the contraction was consistent with 10 minute interval.. it became stronger after that.. around 4pm my water was broke & at that time my contraction was approx around 3-5 minute interval.. so i called the hospital & rushed to Princess Anne Hospital..

ahmad uzayr firhad
we safely arrived to the hospital around 4.40pm & directly went to broadlands birth centre (kira wad bersalin la nih).. with confident i told them that i want to try water birth & they escorted me to a pool room.. then the midwife asked me to get my urine sample & she took my pad for further examination.. but unfortunately i did not get the opportunity to try water birth since my color of amniotic fluid was not clear..the colour was yellowish range.. she explained that maybe the baby had poo inside the womb.. so we carried on with the normal method...hwaaa... nangessss... ingat nak try water birth kt sini... so we went to a labour room... for your information, labour rooms & pool rooms are not in the same level..

another firhad in the house
in the labour room, they put me in monitoring condition with belts on my tummy.. i asked them to remove the belts because i felt uncomfortable.. but they couldn't do so.. they explained politely how important to them to monitor my condition closely since they suspected that baby has had bowel movement before labour.. after a q&a session in regards my previous deliveries, the they did a VE (vaginal examination) to check my progress.. just imagine after more than 1 hour i reached the hospital, baru nak check jalan.. in Malaysia, the situation could be very different.. they will perform VE right after your reach hospital.. meaning ko sampai je hospital, terus di jolok nyerr.. the best part was, after they did the VE, they said that i was ready to deliver since i already 8cm dilated.. nah kau!!! debushhh...

during my antenatal check up, i chose to be 'active' which mean the mother is take control of the situation & not the midwife.. the midwife only do her job when we are ready to deliver... maksudnyer ko dah rasa nk teran, berak & kencing baru ko panggil midwife tu.. setakat ko tunjuk muka kental tahan contraction tu, dia buat derkkk jerr... midwife x jauh pun.. hujung kaki ko jerr... dia just monitor dr jauh dgn student tu sbb ko pilih active labour kan... because this was a 5th child, so i know the right time to push.. actually, i wasn't push the baby out.. just control your breathing & the baby will come out without any pushing.. they push themselves..
the student & midwife
sambung cerita.. english please... so i had 3rd tear degree.. help yourself by google it.. i'm lazy to explain.. i had a few stitches.. i didn't face any complication.. uri lengkap.. bleeding rate was normal.. so, i rested in the labour room about 3 hours.. the student offered me some drink & biscuits.. never say no to rezeki.. makan dengan gelojoh sekali even it were a cup of tea &  a small pack of cracker.. rasa macam sedap gilerr.. then, they took me to the ward... spouse is not allowed to accompany their wife.. the baby will be place in the baby cot, beside mother's bed.. uzayr is good boy.. he doesn't make a sound during that night.. so i got a quality sleep in the hospital.. pendek kan cerita.. ahkak dibenarkan pulang keesokan harinya.. ahkak dalam wad berkain batik ajer.. sempoiii gettew..

fresh from womb

so the baby's head came out but the body still inside.. remember the student?? so the midwife was busy explaining something to the student & suddenly i felt another contraction.. i just couldn't help myself to give another gentle push.. hambik kau.. tergezutt member 2 org tu.. tetiber je dh kuar satu badan.. actually the midwife told me to listen to her direction.. meaning kalu dia tak suruh teran lagi, jangan le teran dulu.. ate, mana nk tahan ye dakk?? kepala dah keluar, tapi badan sangkut lagi.. bile rasa contraction je, terus push.. tak tunggu dah arahan selanjutnyerr... but, ada but nyerr.. the consequence is you might be end up with higher tear degree.. paham?? tak paham my english?? i know that i'm using advanced english.. that's why not many readers understand what i'm trying to explain... wakakakkaka..

the latest pic.. taken while writing this entry
now, enjoy the pictures.. malas nak tulis.. before i forget, here, they do not implement makan ubat berak anymore.. they said if you poo during delivery, that's ok & it's normal.. don't feel embarrass.. kalau kt Malaysia, ko dah kena sumpah seranah plus kutukan masyarakat midwife & doktor.. hahhahaha...
