I was going through my day as usual, but actually feel tired while mapling around midnight. I thought it was unusual but didnt pay much attention to it.
If I remember correctly, I had a strain in the tummy while trying to sleep. I even told Daven not to come out so soon. At least be an October baby if he cant wait till the 10th.
38 weeks 1 day
I woke up to the stomachache in the middle of the night. Thought I had a bad stomach and wanted to head for toilet. Saw light under the door and knew that BenBen Daddy was preparing for work. Went back to sleep. Estimated Time : 5 plus am.
Woke up to the same stomachache. Went to the toilet and had a slight diarrhea. Estimated Time : 6 or 7 plus am. Went back to sleep...
Had another diarrhea at Estimated Time : 9 plus am. Think I saw blood on the paper, but wasnt really sure. Thought to myself, it might be today.
Went back to bed, and the stomachache became like cramps. The pain is short, but with quite long interval, I think, cause I would go back to sleep before waking up to the next pain.
I woke BenBen up with each pain too. But the pain is really short that he didnt really think is serious. UNTIL the interval became shorter and more regular. He woke everyone else up at Estimated Time 10:30am, informing about the pain.
I was told to check how long the interval was, while others prepared breakfast. Went for the third diarrhea and had half a egg mayo sandwich before the pain became stronger.
Went for shower and prepared to head to the hospital. And ya, I was bleeding slightly. Calls for taxi were not easy since it was raining. But still managed to get one in time.
The pain was getting a little unbearable each time. Reached KK Hospital at about 1230pm. Was pushed straight to the Delivery Suite. The staff did whatever they did, and seriously I didnt really care what they were doing.
I only know that I was 8 cm. But in order to deliver, I have to be 10, which would probably have to be in about one or two hours' time. In the meantime, I would have to use the gas to bear with the pain.
But honestly, the gas wasnt helping alot. The pain and pressure kept making me wanting to push. I dunnoe how long but eventually, my water bag burst. I think I was pushing hard after that. Before my doctor came, Daven's head could already be seen.
I guess the nurse was really stressed. Luckily for her, my doctor came just in time. Within a few moment, at 2.06pm, Daven was born. Weighing 3748g at birth, he is quite a chubby baby.
One of the nurses was amazed by his weight since my tummy was rather small. I suppose 2 hours in the Delivery Suite was a short time. I didnt even have epidural. Let's just say that the tough has yet to come.
denise & cin : guess now you guys will bemore interested in Daven's photo le. hahax.
trix : thanks for dropping by again. Daven is born healthy~! Maybe next time he will become pro racer. LoLx!
Yvonne : Ya. Long time no see! Thanks for dropping by too. I think I will miss dance.
CrystalXue:ya. pictures should becoming soon. SOON..

Went for my follow up checkup yesterday. As usual, the doctor just said a few sentences, did a very short scan and then jiu nothing le. hahax. Daven's head is very low down by now, but not yet engaged. It's really easy to tell since I can feel his hands; or legs; or whatever that is; pushing, swimming, or whatever you call it.
The scan show that everything's fine, as usual. Heartbeat's normal. Well, my next appointment is in 2 weeks' time, but most probably I wont have to go for that. Since Daven may be early.
Just finish watching 命中注定我爱你 todae. The story is okay, but I think the ending is abit rush. mm.*nod nod* Oh ya. Got abit tummy ache when cooking dinner todae. hahax. I still can sit down and cut the vege lehx.
Oh ya. And I'm back to mapling. Let's just say people are crazy sometimes. LOL!

Hohoho.. I have been going out and helping around at home so much that I havent touched my computer for days. Well, since my due date is getting closer and closer, I guess I have to go out as much as I can, before I can hardly walk bahx. XD
Oh ya. I guess I received Onion's sms yesterday or so, saying that she will be having her bdae chalet on 27 Sep. hahax. As usual, I didnt reply. I guess, of all the sms-es, I have the least reason to reply hers. Ops. LOL!
Sorry for not turning out at Denise's Bdae chalet the other time. It was raining badly at my side, and ya, I got lazy. =X
Garlic told me that they most probably wont be going too, since Pepper was not invited. Well, I dont even know where I will be on that day. Maybe I already gave birth, and am in hospital lehx. hahax.
Sing me a song~!
Talked to Lingx on ebuddy. She actually wanted to jio me go k. I wanna SING!! LOL! I dont sing in the bathroom like I used to. Even if I did sing, I wouldnt sing as loud as I used to sing back home. Noise pollution, you know. LOL! BUT! I sang (and I mean SANG) in the room, cause I was alone in the room; doors close. BUT! They still heard me. HOHOHO~!

A lot of people have been encouraging me to breastfeed Daven. Even though there are quite a number of people who bottle feed their babies too. But I think breastfeeding do have a lot of advantages for both mother and child. So I should be trying my best to breastfeed him bahx.
Not to mention that my mother breastfed all 3 of us. 4 months for my sis, 3 for my brother (cause my mother was on medication), 2 for me (cause I am NEVER full).
-=Main pros for breastfeeding=-
1. Baby can get antibodies from breast milk since they cant produce their own yet.
2. Baby wont get sick easily.
3. Baby will get all the nutrients he needs.
4. Save money. $.$
5. Mother can slim down very fast. =0
But according to my mother, for babies who eat alot (LIKE ME), will not be satisfied for long with breast milk. I rejected breast milk when I was 2 months old, and immediately finished the whole bottle of formula milk. HAHAHAHAHA~!
