Around 11 am, I was admitted to the maternity ward. Doctor came at around 12 noon to rupture the fluid. Sebelum tu dah buat CTG dulu. Alhamdulilah, baby's heart beat was good. Memanglah kan, baby tengah seronok duduk dalam perut ibunya. Belum masa nak keluar lagi.
Bila dah pecah air ketuban, baru lah tau rasanya macam mana. It was a warm fluids. Dan banyak sangat. Was it painful? Yes it was. Dah nama pun bersalin kan? Berpeluh juga la. Thank God that the nurse kept saying, tarik nafas dalam-dalam. Tapi, masih juga sakit.
The Gynea then left me alone. So did the nurse.I was just watching tv while hoping that the cervix will dilate rapidly. Bila dengar azan Zohor kat tv, sempat juga tanya nurse macam mana nak solat. Kata nurse, darah dah keluar sekali masa air ketuban pecah, kalau nak diikutkan dah kira darah nifas. Wallahualam. Masa ni hubby dah balik rumah.
I didn't felt the contraction at the beginning. Just an hour later I started to feel it. I remembered the Gynea had advised me to have a light walk around the ward. But how? So I just remained on the bed. After Zohor only my mother arrived. Then my hubby. When the contraction becames often, I sat on a chair instead of the bed. So I could feel the pain less. Jam 4 petang, bukaan cervix dah 4 cm. Daripada ward, saya pindah ke bilik bersalin (labour room). They only allow one person to accompany me. So, my hubby went in. Bila tiba waktu solar Asar, mak pula jaga.
Dalam labour room tu, I was not allowed to sit. Baring mengiring je sepanjang masa sebab nurse dah letak the CTG machine on me to monitor baby's heart beat. Masa masuk situ, they have doubled up pitocin volume dalam kantung drip tu. Jadi, makin kuat la contraction. Nak duduk tak boleh, apatah lagi nak bangun atau berjalan. Sebab tu orang cakap sakit kalau bersalin induce. Sebab dah sakit sangat, saya terpaksa gigit tangan hubby yang tengah genggam erat tangan isterinya ini. He he. I'm sorry hubby. Tak sengaja.
