|Arish Ikmal - Last week after school papa bwk pi Wallsend library...story book reading time|
Today's is my 4th son's 5th birthday.
Happy Birthday ARISH........! Mommy doakan Arish dgn kesihatan yg baik, punya budi pekerti yang mulia & yg penting sekali jadi anak yang soleh. Amiin.
Reminiscing back the day I gave birth to him mmm....it seemed like yesterday having him! Me & my darling planned to have him after we came back from our honeymoon (again hehhe..) at Egypt (plus we went for umrah at that time). So, my darling asked for a boy and Alhamdulillah, Allah granted our wish...for the fourth time.
It was, again, Alhamdulillah a very easy & simple delivery as I wanted to let him out 2 weeks early. But wait....! Of course, no induce, no epidural (never had one!)....simply normal birth. Mommy requested kt gynae, let me have him at home because previous three births seemed smooth and okay but gynae said, NOBODY HAD SUCH REQUEST! mmm....nak balik kampung tak nak sbb sblm ni, tiga2 berpantang kat rumah sendiri, bakar tungku sendiri, benkung sendiri, uruskan anak2 & suami sendiri, masak, basuk, cuci smua2nye sendiri...so, takkan beranak pun takleh sendiri.....??? Gynae still said no, no, no! So, terpaksa la akur...
Starting week 36 mommy dh ready wat regular check-up with gynae - to check the status of cervic. Bila dh "masak", we can always stimulate the effacement & dilation process, InsyaAllah. By end of week 36, Arish mcm dh phm2 mommynye soh kuar awai heheh...when checked, gynae said it's ready, yeayyyy....Nx weeknya mommy gi keje cam biasa so leh time nk wat stimulation but almost end of week 37, during weekend mmg tak putus2 wat. Mmg ada postive sign because my record of Braxton-Hicks (BH) mmg showed frequent contraction each time mommy did the stimulation. Ye ye yeh....its almost time to meet lil Arish. He's very2 co-operative! Thanks honeyyyyy....On Saturday tu I went to pasar malam with my darling, terjumpa kwn lama. Tgk my big bulky belly, dia pun tanya, bila due. I simply said, next Monday! She said, eh, dh tau ke? I replied, tak lah, but I want him on next Monday........she just grinned with a lil confusion ^___^. Sunday tu I already had a feeling, my cervic is well effaced & dilated.
So, pagi Isnin, 8 MAY 2006 tu kami anto siap2 anak2 ke school & taska. After that, we went straight to see gynae. When checked, yup, I'm dilated with 3-4cm. Alhamdulillah. Masa tu my gynae ada clinic (means she has to be at her clinic for patients' regular check-up). Again, we went to labour room & waited there with doing nothing except sembang2, igt masa dulu2...best gak, dok dua2 dlm bilik labour yg dh mcm bilik hotel! My darling siap pekena nasi lemak lg tuh hehhe. Since mommy ni tak rasa contraction pains so mommy tak tau how much I was dilated except gynae dtg & check. But, yg mommy tau, kalao lenguh2 kaki, mmg dh masanye & it did happen. So, by noon, ARISH IKMAL was born with normal delivery, weighing only 3.10kg (as compared to his brother with 3.60kg!); head circumference=35cm & length=51cm. One push he's out and Alhamdulillah, he was very co-operative during birthing process.
