Birth of Ashton Ng - 22nd December 2009

Ashton's birth story (updating since still fresh in memory)

Woke up late this morning. Suppose to reach TMC at 8am but I woke up at 8.15am. Actually I didn't sleep well cause my ribcage were quite painful due to some pressure since 6 something. I was just lazing on my bed waiting for my alarm to go off. But for whatever reason, my alarm did ring but was very soft. So I jumped out of bed at 8.15am. *Late!*

Quickly sent boy and maid to PIL's place. Time was around 8.45am.
Reach TMC at 9.30+/-am.
9.45 am -- Wait for admission, went to Labour ward. This labour ward is smaller than the one that I delivered Tristan.
10 am -- Enema administered to help me with my bowel. Put on drip for induction and antibiotics.
10.30 am -- Dr Chua arrived to break waterbag and check for dilation. Waterbag broke but NO water came out. Amazing?! Was shock actually and was waiting for slightest water to flow out but really NONE. Dilation was 2 cm. Had breakfast after Dr Chua left.
10.30 am - 12 pm -- Not much pain. Still bearable.
12+ pm - Contraction become stronger. Start using laughing gas.
12+ pm - 2 pm -- Control pain using laughing gas.
2 pm -- Dr Chua came to do VE check and 4 - 5 cm dilated. Good news cause I'm dilating! The gas and constant reminder to relax helps. But did request for a jab at the thigh which I think is call pethidine. (Kinda regretted cause seems like right after the injection, the contraction was strong and it didn't help much)
2+ pm - 3 pm -- Contraction pain became more and more intense. Keep using the laughing gas and do deep breathing. Nurses constantly came in to check dilation. 7 - 8 cm... 8 - 9cm... Ready! I was high on laughing gas and like hallucinating due to the pain.
3 pm - 3.15 pm -- Did some pushing and nurse asked me to stop cause they are asking Dr Chua to come. With don't know how many pushes, Ashton was DELIVERED! (Think 7 -8 pushes or 9 - 10 pushes? I can't remember...)

I did it without epidural! I'm proud of myself cause that was what I wanted all along but I couldn't endure the pain when I had Tristan. For Ashton, I mentally prepared myself for the pain and was able to better 'control' it. At the last few pushes, I was still telling Dr Chua "I don't want already", "I don't want already"! She was telling me "Cannot don't want already, you are half way through"... Haha! What was I thinking... but seriously the pain at that moment was like I'm being torn apart. Anyway, everything is over already.

Ashton was born really dry, no water came out even at delivery and he didn't had much of the whitish stuff on him also. However, most important is he is alright and healthy. =)
* 2.91 kg and 49 cm*

~We are now the proud Daddy and Mummy of Tristan and Ashton! ~
Cheers!

Well done, Nicole. I'm so proud of you. Frankly, being a mother now, I still don't know how it feels being in a contraction because I delivered Edison via C-section. Throughout the process, I was sleeping and painless!

Rest well and enjoy your confinement and new baby... Hope to see picture of Baby Ashton in your blog soon...

congrats once again!
