Puteri Arrived - 14th Jan 2007 (Sunday)

Yueh Hui was born earlier by 2 weeks. For course, her name was not fixed until 2nd week. As first baby, we were expecting it to be late. Even Dr Wong Yet Mei who we visited yesterday was talking about how to deal if its overdue.

Around 10.00am in the morning, YL was complaining she experienced mild contraction every 10 minutes. At that time, I was so 'fixed' that I was strongly believe that was only a false alarm because I was expecting it to be longer interval as the book said, maybe start from 30 minuts interval then slowing shorten. By 11.00am, after 1 hour of monitoring and timing, the contraction was still happen every 10 minutes. We decided to go to Sunway Hospital for checkup, in case, but on the way we have our late breakfast. Think about it now, we really take things too easy. We reach hospital by 11.30am, the nurse immediately put YL to labour room to monitor the
progress. An hour later, the nurse confirmed that the dilation is already 5cm and wanted me to admit YL. With all the Pre-natal course knowledge, the full dilation should need another 5 hours, 1 hour for 1 cm. I called Chris (Stremlife) that YL will deliver the baby by 4pm. By the time I completed the admission registertion and back to labour room, YL was complaining the sharp pain from her stomack, the time was 12.45 noon. I immediately alert the nurse, she told me
that the baby will be deliver anytime. I quickly call Chris again to update the latest situation. By this time, YL was in terrible pain but the nurse kept reminding her no to push. Doc Wong arrived about 1.10pm and immediately they position YL in Delivery position. By 1336, Angelina born within 5 sets of pushing. She is heathy and cord coiled her neck twice but everything is fine.
While the nurses cleaning her, Dr Wong was handling YL and waiting for the Placenta to be delivered. It was an easy job because the Placenta just slide out by itself.

Yueh Hui has her first breast milk right after the checkup. It was a struggle because YL is new to breast feed and the baby is also new to breast feed.

Yit Ling was transfer back to normal wad above 3pm. From that time on, we have a lot of visitor from her family, my family and friends.
The first night was peaceful.
