Welcome to the world! :)

Early morning of 18th September 2007 at about 3.30 am, I woke up…

Since I have started to feel a strange fluttering thing in my tummy, Sham decided to wake up and have an early sahur.

He wanted me to make him a mug of Milo, so I went to the kitchen. Suddenly, I felt water running by between my hips.

Uh-oh…the waterbag burst! (I thought Along said, if I had blood stain (kembar darah), I wouldn’t have a waterbag leakage -kembar air.)

Hmm…it’s two days or one-week shy of my actual delivery date (20th or 27th).

So, Sham quickly finished his meal, and stuffed the bag into the car. And we drove to Hospital Putrajaya. I was busy texting friends, colleagues and family members to get their blessings & prayers.

When the doctor first checked me, but it was only 3-4 cm open, and had to wait further.
I was left strapped to a boxy machine (the ultrasonic doppler) to monitor baby's heartbeat. So fast like a running horse!

Every half an hour, the Dr & nurses came checking me. Dian & Jalak were so excited that they started to wait for us from the beginning.

Although the decision is ultimately mine, I was glad upon hearing the midwife saying “It’s progressing well, looks like u can deliver normally.”

When the contractions are minutes apart...I asked Sham, "What's the time?"

He said "11 a.m"

I remember people saying...if the baby is born during mid-day, he/she'll be stubborn!
After half an hour later, I asked the same question.

This time, I just couldn’t wait for the cervix to dilate anymore. Anything latter is just a waste of time, unless complications are expected to arise. Hehe! So, I started pushing.... Sham was asked to see the baby's head, while I tried to gasp another long breath. Not long after that...........

The baby's out! Alhamdulillah....
and I looked at Sham "What's the time?"
He smiled..."It's 12pm".

Hahaha. I tried hard to make sure the baby's out before noon, but what to do? Luckily, the Dr's watch showed 11.57am. So, I can say that my baby won't be a stubborn boy!

After showing him to me, I tried to tickle him a little bit while they were cutting his umbilical cord. Then, they put the baby on my tummy for a while. Subhanallah! He's so cute! With his eyes closed...

He was handed to Sham to hear his first Azan & Iqamah.

To cut it short, after evertything was done, I was asked to breastfeed him. That was the first moment that bound me with my little darl.

Then, I was sent to the ward. These are the pix of the proud Mama & Ayah...

Welcome to the world, little angel! Semoga tabah mengharungi pelbagai dugaan dalam hidup ini.

Our first visitors were Pak Ngah (Tok) and Mak Ngah (Uwan). I was overwhelmed!
Then, came Along & Yone, Sab, Zana & Ima, Faezah (my officemate) and Jasce (Sham's friend whom I just got to know).
Thanks a lot, guys...for sharing the excitement of the arrival of my bundle of joy!
