Giving birth is no joke, the pain is excruciating to the point no words can actually describe how i felt during those hours of contractions and pushing which took a total of almost 8 hours just to get lil parasite out and into this horrid world. Sorry you can't stay in my carefree amniotic fluid filled belly forever lil girl but now you are finally here with me, let us brave every obstacle we are bound to face near future together k? Don't leave mommy alone and for me, likewise.
I know i was supposed to share this like 2 weeks ago but my laptop died and currently i'm using a loaned one as i am still trying to see which laptop to get within my budget :(
And guess once you are a workaholic, you'll always be one even though your body tells you that you NEED the rest but your mind can't stop rushing and analyzing things that needs to be done. But all and all i am the type that feels damn worthless when i am unproductive for one day, sounds too hard on myself eh?
After reading this entire blogpost, you new moms too would have done what i did by checking into a confinement home and i regretted for not doing so earlier or else i would have recovered much faster and i wouldn't have cried so much wondering what went wrong and it kinda triggered my depression hearing my baby wail uncontrollably. Some might say it's postpartum depression, which is rather normal as long you seek medical assistance and you know how much i hate the shrinks after being zombiefied by high dosage of anti depressant meds for almost 3 years before this.
So bringing home the little bundle of joy was much more difficult than i thought as the hospital refused to clear me due to my depression history so i ended up staying 2 more days (over the weekend) just for the shrink in charge on Monday to evaluate me and gotta bear in mind that dealing with government hospitals everything takes AGES to get done. Like making an appointment i had to wait half a day wtf indeed, but that's how things works there. Reminds me very much of the sloth, Flash from Zootopia lol (not kidding!). But after getting all those cleared, thank god my mom was there to remind me to keep my cool as i was on the verge of exploding at staffs for wasting my time especially when i am well enough to be discharged last saturday already, plus i had an ongoing project that screams CODE RED URGENT.
Should make another blogpost on what goes on inside government hospitals wei, it's affordable and all but they do things way too slow and only give you attention when you are nearly dying lol or else you'll just end up on the waiting list.
And i seriously was jinxed with Murphy's law wei.. " Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong."
That's what happened, and gotta remind lil parasite this epigram when she grows up. I was too focused on trying to get my project done before her initial due date on the 24th Nov but she came up one week earlier because.."Murphy's law" lel.
And it didn't come from one person, first YingTze mentioned it to me but i brushed it off as a joke and what a coincidence the pregnancy app i was using to track my maternity progress brought it up as well but one week too late lol.
And we actually aren't allowed to bring in mobile phones into the labor room or take any photos but so happen i hid mine because i needed b to contact my sis or mom in case of an emergency but the cranky nurse confiscated my phone and dumped it to my younger sister who was later shooed away with all my stuff including important medical documents. (-_-) damn smart move from the cranky nurse.
Was practically in labor for about 7 hours before i ended up pushing though i was scolded by the nurses not to do so as i was only 5cm dilated and screaming was just gonna exhaust me since i need my entire energy for the pushing. But HECK WITH THEM, my body told me to just push no matter what so i ended up forcing lil parasite out in the process of accidentally tearing my "entrance" (hurts like f*ck) so that explains why my baby's head is slightly longer on the top lol. Hopefully that shape is just temporary and will mold accordingly as she grows up. Didn't take lil parasite too long before she's out but from the pushing and trying to catch my breath in between its like you are having the worst constipation of you life man.. and i am pretty sure you guys know how shitty it feels to try so hard to push that solid poop out but it goes back in after you try to briefly inhale for oxygen lol sounds wtf i know but that's the truth yo. If i timed myself correctly lil parasite took less than an hour to come out (about 30 mins+) before i passed out from exhaustion and was briefly woken up to be asked "what's my baby's gender", which made me puzzled as i was also super groggy to even think straight. Weird question for the nurses to ask before wheeling my baby out to be cleaned up.
Would also like to thank everyone for the well wishes online/ offline and those who came by to visit us while we were stuck in the hospital.
Every message made our day less dreadful here :)
