My labour story - drama in the labour room?

As usual, this entry must be written despite it will be long entry or perhaps after several months of the birth...because each delivery is unique!

The only similarities between 1st and 2nd are both delivered at Hospital Purajaya and also overdue pregnancy *maybe my womb provide best place for for both of them until can make us worried!*

But, for 2nd pregnancy baby was not engaged until to the very last be exact I think the engaged process was an hour before he was delivered

29 June 2011

8.00 am
- Husband send Afham to nursery. Have an express shower. Packed all things. Mak bekalkan roti dan air milo
- Sempat makan roti sekeping + bberapa hirup ar milo *ok because last time almost xde energy nk deliver sbb xmakan*
- Register at counter and after that as usual with all those CTG, soal jawab keluar tanda ke, air ketuban ke, sakit ke?
- Husband settled all those registration, payment, so on , while myself in monitor room

9.00 am
- Dilated 2cm - checked by Dr Naza. Since the graf not nice thay decided to put drip...Erk another Dr attempted 3 times before the drip was set..*habis tangan kiri bengkak...since 2 attemp failed..last time sekali je cucuk dh ok, pdhal dl nurse yg buat!*
- Dr Naza informed that she will informed my condition to Dr Hazim since she not sure Dr Hamidah in or not...
- What I noticed there's a lot of medical student so on lalu lalang...nasib la FPP so diorg xleh kacau
- Heard at least 3-4 pregnant ladies sent to Hospital Kajang...Hosp Putrajaya dah penuh..again nasib FPP klu tak dh kena tendang

10 am
- Masuk air botol ke 2. I think org lain sume dh keluar masuk monitor room tu but myself masih lg dlm room tu
- Nurse asked me whether bring any breakfast..or want to asked husband to get any breakfast for me. Bekal mmg ada kt kereta, but since it was raining heavily, nurse decided to gave me whatever they belasah milo secawan dan biskut beberapa keping

11 am
- I was send to Executive Ward. They informed around 1pm Dr Hazim will come to check my condition
- Nurse came to check my contraction..and she said if it is so super strong to call them.
- Having early lunch..mkn nasi kerabu..husband suap sbbnya myself struggled with frequent contraction
- Sempat terlelap sekejap

1 pm
- Dr Hazim informed that Dr Hamidah not in due to personal emergency thing. So he will be in charge *aduh...mmg all the while klu blh mmg le xmo Dr lelaki tp dh sakit2 mcm gini xkan la nk tggu Dr Hamidah lg kan?*
- He informed that I already dilated 3cm *mcm slow progress kan je...pdhal kul 9 br 2cm*.
- He decided to break my waterbag...*Baca mostly comment sakit giler...for me ok la blh lg tahan..cuma segan Dr lelaki*
- Sempat borak2...he said his younger sister also tgh tggu masa nk deliver anak no 6...but by comparing condition he said that I will deliver first..while I said to him " Dr..bkn ke tu anak ke 6..ptt lg cepat dr sy la kan?" then he replied "hmm..kita tgk rezeki masing2, but I believe u deliver dulu
- Oh ya..nasib baik ubat berak nurse yg tlg masukkan...seganla Dr lelaki

1.45 pm
- Already in the deliver room...last time at this hour dh selamat lahirkan Afham
- Frequent contraction, but since this is 2nd exp I believe I manage it better than 1st..ape tak yg first dulu masuk LR terus suh husband masuk teman..nasib yg 1st tak le terlalu lama kat LR..klu tak mau la huband lenguh berdiri teman bini..
- This time siap pasang tiub oksigen kat hidung..*erk dulu xde sbb myself ada asma time pregnant?*
- For past few days I have nose blockage..nk kata selsema teruk idakle tapi hidung tersumbat bygkan nk buat breathing technique-contraction-hidung tersumbat sebelah...
- Someone *I think mcm medical student je..lelaki plak tu..hish mcm dh tak FPP plak* came asked whether I want epidural or not *mula2 ingat nk amik..ada la exp epidural..tpkan lps tu fikir jimatkan duit dr epidural dgn bertahan..- haha kedekutkan?*
- Since tak nak epidural, maka gas adalah option. Again since this is 2nd exp maka sudah lebih tahu control diri untk guna gas *yes this time I know how to control and at the same time got the gas effect*
- Then ada few *again* medical student came in monitor CTG and then asikla komen "baby puan tido..."

3 pm
- Contraction getting stronger. SMS husband asked him to come in
- Blh tak nurse lupa registerkan husband tuk teman wife dlm LR..
- Started the LR drama..."abang..sakit..." , and as usual recite selawat, Surah al-Anbiya,87..Laila ha illa anta subha na ka inni kumtum minazzolimin, breathing technique, and also gas..
- Since before this I read someone took gas and her head started think of at the other world - khayal, mamai , so I tried to control the effect by took on-off the gas
- I really feel want to pee but mcm x asked husband to call nurse

- Nurse came. She help to pee - bkn pegi toilet..tpkan dia keluarkan urine guna tiub...Asked her when someone will checked how cm dilated? She said " pukul 5 nanti br ada org check..."
- OMG..rasa mcm lmbt sgt nk check dilation...So I requested her to check while she help me to pee..
- She said 5cm already
- Decided to give me pitocin "kami bg pitocin untk cepatkan jalan ye puan..."
- Once the pitocin gave super- duper- impact! Maybe at the same time kepala baby pun nk engaged
- By comparing to first one, I think ini lg sakit...dah tak tahu terjerit ke hape kt husband, but jerit pun kata "sakit"..tapi dah 2 kali bersalin so far tak pernah gigit tgn husband, but gigit sarung bantal..erk
- The worst thing I stated to feel nk berak..*malu la plak nk kena tulis jugak..blush*
- Again panggil nurse since dh mcm terkencing, terberak..she said its normal
- I think few times pee-poo...mcm org the same time mmg terasa kepala Alif nk engaged...*hint : last minute engage ni sakit (for me), plus xamik epidural*
- Suddenly I really cannot bear the pain..rasa nk teran...ape lg berdrama la kata "sakit". Agaknya sbb suara kuat..kelam kabut misi mai
- Dr Hazim pun masuk..misi cepat2 put my legs to support and asked me pegang besi...serius kelam kabut giler

5.00 pm
- Alif lahir with 2 push...nurse sume xsempat nk jd cheerleader..sbbnya dh super kelam kabut
- Dr Hazim put him betul2 atas my stomatch. Alif cried loudly *compared to Afham*
- Dr Hazim keluarkan uri dan jahit...
- Sempat borak ngan Dr Hazim *smbl sedut gas..sbb last time Dr Hamidah dh ajar time jahit sedut je gas..kot2 tak tahan time jena jahit*
- Asked Dr Hazim " Dr tak buat episotomi kan?..Dr said " tak de..x sempat"...he also added actually "tak sempat fully dilated 9cm. tapi koyak normal under control"

- Dr Hazim finished with procedures *eyh rasa mcm kejap je kan?* He congratulate me..
- Husband also settle down - azankan Alif..amik uri, etc dan balik since he need to fetch Afham

- Nurse came to help with breastfeeding *ok last time I missed this part because Afham was send to NICU right after born*

- Nurse come to check baby and me ok.
- Dr check whether its ok to release me to ward

- Nurse send me to ward
- Super lapar...nasib la diorg x clearkan lg food..ok lauk ayam jd santapan..
- Husband came with MIL, Afham dan sepupu dia
- MIL temankan tdo malam tu. Husband balik ngan Afham

Whole night
- Since this is my 2nd exp, managed not to call nurse even once. Even MIL also can sleep. Alif ada gak berjaga few times for feeding and also he poo poo.
- Nurse came few times just to make sure I'm ok or not

30 June 2011
9 am
- Dr Hamidah came to check my condition. Sempat la borak2..she said she told Dr Naza if I did not progress need to do anything on me, wait until she came back. But since dilation and contraction so on, maka Dr Hazim replaced her

- Discharged.

So that's all..To my suprised some of the nurses at the executive ward recognised me "cam muka-tapi mcm ingat2 lupa". Ada yang tanya "mcm pernah tgk sblm ni"..and I said " taun lepas bersalin sini, dok executive ward jugak" *segan2 lah plak*

Total cost for this time almost RM1.5k. This time I stayed at 2 bedded room compared to previous one. I will blog later again on FPP thingy and also TCM unit, Hospital Putrajaya *again crossing my finger I can have my sweet time to blog*

Overall, Alhamdulillah 2nd experience much better despite Alif not engaged till the very last minute.


  1. sy baca kisah bsalin ni rasa cam skrg gaks seriau perut..
    rasa nak bsalin..
    teringat2 dalam LR..hahahhaaa
    gaya bahasa anda sgt mengujakan daku membaca smpi abis..i like!!!!

  2. hohoho i pun tak update2 cite bersalin lagii ;p oh u dah dua kali FPP HP eh? i yg 2nd aritu FPP with dr hamidah. i dua2 kali induced (masuk tablet) sbb both pregnancy pun overdue +_+

  3. as salam ryyhan,

    i stumbled upon ur blog about FPP. ada jugak baca ur last post on first time FPP. i'm 7 months pregnant and going to my first appt with dr. azmi this 15th nov.
    Just nak tanya u, memang confirm ke kita takkan kena tendang bila nak bersalin tu kalau amik FPP? takut jugak tiba2 kena reject masa dok tgh sakit2 tu. tak pasal2 ngamuk lak hubby kat situ dah kita byr for all the check-ups kan?
    since u stayed at the double-bedded executive ward, setahu i husband tak blh teman ek mlm2? cuma mak je kan?

    Thanks so much for sharing. at least i tau experience bersalin kat sana.

  4. salam,

    saya nk tau ttg TCM unit tu..previously (2010) xpernah tau pon kewujudan unit tu kt hospital putrajaya..jz recently je tau n i'm preggy (27 weeks)...yg TCM tu utk FPP je ke atau kalo yg walkin lalalalala boleh dpt service kt sane?
    harap dpt buat satu post ttg nih..
