Surprise surprise (Labor) indetail

Ps: guys can ignore this indetail labor post.

I wrote this earlier but now finding time to post

Although I had read about it, but they say when the time comes you forget every thing lol

34 weeks down the preggy lane I had been pretty off home cooked food so I ordered food for continuously 2-3 days. Went for my doc’s appointment on 22Aug Wednesday. All was good she told me to come back in two weeks wid an ultrasound.
Thursday midnight onwards I started having intestinal cramps and I thought oh no so much for junk food. The cramps were so bad dat wid every cramps I could see the baby was being disturbed too n made too many movements. Thursday morning onwards she didnt make any move n I thought she must hav gotten tired too
Evening onwards she was back to her normal mini movements.
It took half friday (23aug) for the cramps to settle after me taking med for the spasms. I was feeling alot better by Friday evening n at night I didn’t want to eat anything heavy, perhaps rest my tummy so I only had milk.
Saturday (24aug) early morning i started having weird cramps that woke me up every hour. They were in abdomen and I thought oh no the infection from my small intestines hav gone to my large intestine
It felt like a bowl movement as if I really wanna go every hour but my every trip to washroom was a waste. I even msgd my doc n askd if I should continue to take med for spasms, she said no get admitted if they get bad n I replied, ok they r bearable for now.
Thanks to diarrhea my 48.5 weight went down to 45 in two days. My friends gave me a surprise baby shower Saturday evening, we had a blast n I kept ignoring slight “cramps” thinking these r just false pain.
I wud feel better wen I’d walk, but feel miserable n got the cramps more often wen I would sit or lay down.
Sunday 25aug: I felt the intensity going a lil bad but everyone kept telling me these r false. Sonce the doc had given me the date between 29th sep to 6th Oct. By now wid every cramp i wud feel my lower back being literally stabbed so by afternoon I told hubby to take me to hospital. They did my CTG n the baby’s heartbeat was good n the graph showd no ‘contraction or pain’ I told them bout my cramps n they sed if u had real pains the graph wud show. So I came back home wid mt “false contractions”.  The pain started to worsen
By night I started to feel as if my lower back has been pulled in sides by a elastic band n every cramp is like some one is playing guitar on those strings. Like a constant stabbing n God it was hurting.
Sunday night was the worst. Monday 26th aug, midnight onwards I started feeling it much more n wen I timed I was getting cramps every 6 minutes id cry wid every cramp n my hubby got up every time to keep his hand on the side of my hip for a soothing effect. (Poor guy)
Monday morning I cried n told my hubby to let’s go get ultrasound done n tell my doc to stop pain I cant bear this for a month till my due date.
The ultrasound showed dat the baby’s head is really down.  My doc had an evening clinic on Monday so i  went home again wondering if this is false pain how bad will b the real ones. After that I couldnt even walk properly felt pressure between my legs. I was actually walking like a penguin lol
Evening wen I sat in the car i felt a lil wetness n thot oo u get it in the last month so no biggie.  I had 3 cramps in the car, 2 while I waited for the lift at the hospital. Lol I went in as normally I wud, got my bp n weight chk n sat in waiting for my turn
Had 3 cramps then. Even the women sitting beside me askd if I was ok n I sed yes just cramps
I had 3 patients before me in line. Thank God my doc got out for a round, saw my drained n exhausted face n eyes tightly shut n askd wat happened to u I sed pains she sed go lie in my room
She came n chkd me leaving me in excruciating pain n instantly sed am admitting u, hubby thot its just for observation she sed shez gonna deliver :O
I had gone wid a mind frame to just ask for a med so this pain wud stop. Wasnt ready for such a preterm delivery
I had told my best friend dat weneva is time I will try natural before asking for epidural but being in that condition for two days, feeling my back stabbed, wen they took me to the labor room n askd if I want epidural I told them only if u promise that this pain will go, plz yessss.
I was changed n taken into labor room, I got the epidural n aftr a lil while of shivering I was in the lalaland… :p the doc came n after a few preparations I was askd to push. I cud hear baby’s heart beat on the monitor.
The doc sed ooo I can see the head n the other second her expressions changed. I had stopd contracting wid the baby half way here. Babys heaetbeat started to drop… even though I had gotten an episiotomy but wen the beat fainted to almost nothing my doctor used the forceps n pulled her out n sed flat baby (I had no idea wat dat meant so I was holding my breath to hear her cry) my episiotomy got extended (ouch). The pediatrician worked on her n it was after 10 freakishly long minutes that she started crying n wid dat I let out my tears of relief.
Thanks to my doc for allowing my hubby to b wid me n big Thanks to my dear husband who stood by me holding my hand all thru the process being my ultimate support. I totally love him for this. (Where I live most docs don’t allow anyone in delivery room)
Being a 8 weeks preemi n only weighing 1.6 kg, she was rushd to the nursery. the doctor said we will keep her for atleast 8-10 days.
That was 26th Aug. Today (wen I wrote this on a notepad) 2nd sep, we r still at the hospital. She is still in the incubator and I M getting hot sit baths for my stitches which is now getting better. But I still cannot sit.
Finally on 4th sep me n baby Tanisha came home :))

I know my post hass gone too long but just thought to write the details so that any n every one can benefit from it….. so if ur preggy n getting abdomenal cramps… go get chkd it might just b real contractions.

Crash Landing!!! and totally Loving it :D

Hello all

Just thought to update my blog, now that i finally got some time i can write a few updates on my baby 🙂
My baby couldn’t wait any longer and wanted to experience the world as soon as she could so she did a crash landing on 26th Aug, a Preemie by 6 weeks weighing only 1.5kg yet had to b pulled by forceps coz i stopped contracting at the last minute n her heartbeat started to faint (dats extended my Episiotomy) OUCH. God Bless Epidural i didn’t feel any thing otherwise lol i dunno wat i wud have done, She was a flat baby n needed artificial respiration to kick start n finally cried after 10 scary minutes (i was holding my heart in my mouth it seemed till the time i waited to hear her cry).
We both were in hospital for 9 days recovering n finally on 4th Sep we came home. Because she is a preemie there is alot of work and care i have to do :))) but i am loving it. like totally, even though i might b sleep deprived and prolly haven’t showered in a day (trust me dats huge for me) but when i look at her face i forget every thing. as long as she is recovering and getting better, i forget about my millions of stitches and my pain and My any thing :)) guess dats being a mother? 🙂

 I wont b uploading her pics for now but just a lil glimpse of my lil bundle of joy.

Image

Thank god i had done most of my shopping earlier but 90% of her cloths are like huge on her, shes literally swimming in them, so finally day before i went n got a few preemie cloths n socks n caps.
Now my routine is doing a temperature control for her, keeping her warm yet not let her heat up, giving her milk every hour coz the doc said she cannot digest more for now so go easy. well every hour means 8 minutes of feeding, 15 minutes of burping, and 10 minutes of waking her up and changing diaper. dat leaves me wid half n hour in between for gettin her next feed ready, or going to the bathroom, or washing n sanitizing her bottles or eating or sleeping or….. basically any n every thing else in the world lol

We Named her Tanisha, it means Happiness and also “Born on Monday” in African american which coincidentally really worked well  as she was born on a Monday 😀 hehe sHe luks like her dad more for now, but i am really happy coz i think she has curly hair. (atleast one attribute is mine) 😛 i always wanted a baby girl who wud luk like her dad, but have curly hair, seems like my wish did come true 😀

ImageDo u spot curls? 😀 or am i just imaging lol?

I do plan on writing all about my labor time so any one not interested can ignore my next post :))))

Reflux, heartburn & a few updates

Just last week i wrote a post about my preggy update
Today all i will talk about is another major symptom of 3rd trimester that’s bugging me and killing me like any thing.

Image Our very own HEARTBURN lol 

I never had an idea about what heartburn is untill now, n trust me its nothing one can enjoy. i’ve gotten so sensitive that even a lil fatty or oily or spicy stuff (i dont usually have spicy even generally) and my entire internals are boiling and burning. on top of that, the Reflux is getting really bad.

Last night i woke up coz i felt almost chocked in my throat with a weird burning acidic feeling and feeling so sumthing stuck in my chest. it was soo uncomfortable. i tried to elevate my pillows n stay on my left side so it may get better, but no such luck. on top of that, entire day today my throat felt that yucky acidic feeling arghhhh so not happy about it. but then again i keep telling my self that its just two months more and things might just get better. For now Gavescon syrup is the rescue, dat too dosnt help at times 😦
I think i need to shift to a total bland food for two months. May b dat wud help the burning n heart burn.
ImageUPDATES on my lil one
Well the baby has been clustered on the right side, which makes it almost impossible for me to sleep on the right, i get good kicks lol, Rest is all good, lil one loves to make pyramids on my tummy eehehehehe, its such a funny sight n hubby freaks out lol
by pyramid i mean the baby puts up its butt against my tummy wall n it stretches out so much that it almost luks like a pyramid/ sand dune hehehhehee
All in all loving every single minute of this time. (apart from the heartburn n refluxes n itching) 😛 hope it all gets better soon, or atleast gets bearable. 🙂

Hope u all are well n i hope to catch up with every one real soon 🙂
till then take good care of ur selves

Hugsssssssssssssss

Preggy Updates

Image

I have been thinking to write some thing about my  pregnancy for soo long but have been either busy or lazy or just lay off laptop. i know i said i will write updates and this and that, n but honestly most of the days i don’t even feel like sitting on net, i’d just check emails from my cell n that’s about good for me.  So finally i gathered enough will to write atleast some thing hehe

To begin with no matter how much i wanted to get pregnant i had NO idea this is what i will have to go through. you must be thinking am talking about all the symptoms women usually crib about but i was seriously lucky to not go through most of them. for instance i had absolutely no morning sickness, nausea or any of this first trimester monsters that most women dread about. i was eating n sleeping fine, infact if my Mom in law wudnt tell me to be careful and rest i’d forget half of the times that i am even pregnant lol
First trimester went by like the blink of an eye. Second trimester definitely brought some symptoms like the sciatic pain in my right leg (Oh god it was bad), itchiness and feeling hot as hell was. and then came a time when i cudnt even eat an egg for breakfast coz i wud instantly break into sweat for the rest of the day. so no more eggs for me for breakfast, i shifted to butter n bread only to realize that the burning sensation i get in my left chest is not my gall bladder instead is a heartburn LOL initially i thought i had gall stones lol. also i know i would have to get new cloths for my self just wasn’t sure when until this happened 😛
ImageSo i got my self some loose shirts made from tailor that i could wear n be comfortable in without feeling too much itchy n hot.

Now 30 weeks past, sitting in my 3rd trimester the symptoms i feel are itchiness (LOADS OF IT), feeling hot, heartburn and at times a little difficulty in sleeping especially when my lil one is sitting on one side.

Well the reason i thought of writing this post today was to share the great news that i finally went shopping

Image

I had been wanting to start shopping right after my 3rd month but i wanted to wait a lil longer, just to be sure, just to be on a safer side n just till i am sure of what colors i wanna get. That too took way too longer then i expected coz every time i’d go for an ultrasound the baby’s position wasnt “favorable” as i was told. It was a relief when finally i found out, but for every one else, they gotta wait till the baby is finally here 😀 that shall be another happy post on my blog, i dont promise an instant posting since i dunno how my routine will get but will make sure i announce it as soon as i can.

Image

During the last two months i also attended stitching classes, just thought an added skill wont hurt, it was only 8 classes crash course n i sorta learnt the basics of how to do pants and a simple shirt. not that i plan to make baby cloths but I had always wanted to learn stitching and this seemed like the perfect time to keep my mind off my self and get busy with some thing constructive. I do need alot more practice but i’;ve gotten the ropes so yayyy

Finally came the shopping days 😀 First i had gone with my mom in law to just chk out things and prices, then i went n got cloths, loads of them,even though every one tells me they get wasted coz baby grows outta it, but how can u resist those adorable lil cloths n body suits now can u???? (A).

I love the fact of how organized i am lol. Like even when i was getting married i had boughts my cloth atleast 4 months ahead of time and gotten them stitched when i still had 2 months left. I like to keep prepared before time, i hate to run around in a rush, and forget impt things in process

ImageSo while i had nothing else to do, i made a list of times i will need categorizing them into bedding, bathing, grooming, cloths, traveling and additional accessories. and i listed things under each category that i wanted with the amount of each item i will need. This way when i went shopping all i did was chk out every item i would get and in the end i had a clear picture of what all is left.I got most accessories like cloths n blankets, wrapping sheets, nail clippers etc., will get bigger stuff like crib n baby stuff drawers n car seat n other things like those, start of 9th month.

Image

As the time is passing now, am getting more n more excited, tired and impatient. I cannot wait to have my lil one in my arms, get off all the irritating symptoms and feel normal again, ready to begin a new chapter of life but at the same time i am really enjoying this time that i have while the baby is still in there. I love watching its movements and kicks and at times we play games too, our fav for now is knock n respond hehe i knock n the baby responds. So now that am mostly done wid my shopping and most things on my agenda list, i am going to sit back and enjoy this one month before i begin shopping for big items. For now i shall drink alot of water, milk and sleep as much as i can . 🙂

I honestly have no idea when i will write a post again but i think i have covered almost every thing in this one till now. So till you guys get a new update from me, enjoy this post n keep praying for all to go well for me & my lil one 🙂

Way too Hyper

Image

I used to think i will be so kewl and this n that when i get pregnant, but today for the first time i cud feel the effects of it on me, n trust me they were not pleasant  I had to go shopping, get my self sum turkey slices so i can make my self sum yummy sandwiches when i want and i LOVE shopping. I went to this new mall that has opened last year that has a sorta departmental store, n i love going there even if its just to look at things, but today, i think i was way too hyper, n my nerves were so sensitive, just pushing that trolley felt like such an effort, i thot pushing will be better then me picking a small basket n going around with the weight but arghh that trolley was way too much of work lol, n then i wanted to get it all done quickly coz hubby needed the car, so hyper-ness plus the quickness made it worse. i felt my cheeks flushing n warm. i walked from one corner to another to pick the turkey slices, they only had one brand of dressing so i didn’t pick it, i like american garden better then wat that new brand was, plus i like options. i picked iceberg lettuce, cheese n brown bread n then heeded for the counter. billed, paid n off in the car, then i stopped at the movie store since its the weekend n i wanted to have a good stock of movies i wanna watch when i feel like

LOL this pregnancy has made me way too selfish n weird i was never like this 😛 anyways so i picked like 10 movies, then headed to this another store to get thousand island light dressing, also picked corn flakes, n tang lemon pepper juice coz the weather is getting way too hot here so its good to have sumthing like this handy.

I also had to pick my sister in law on the way back from a shopping mall but she still needed more time, so i stopped at the near by subway to catch a breath (not that i was on foot) but i NEEDED to calm my self down, so i ordered my self a turkey breast 6 inch, n gave my self a lil pep talk, kept telling my self to calm down, all this while my nerves felt like they will shred into pieces. i have no idea y i was getting soo hyper. but i felt alot better after the sub n as soon as i finished my last bite my sister in law called tht she is done n i shud come pick her, only took me 2 minutes to reach her n finally within a few minutes i was home.
So the point of writing this whole thing down is that this hyper-ness is soo new to me, it freaked me out, i thot i will have a nervous break down, i hated to feel my nerves pulsating so hard at my temples. May b next time if the car is needed i wil not make any plans for my self unless its all for me. n may b i can start to do a lil relaxing exercises but i get lazy although i feel they will help me in the end too.

I really hope i learn to relax soon :))

Run Down Event Updates

Image

Helloo Allll

i figured if i start writing every event that i wanna share in flowery tone n details and what not i might never be able to get to the end of it, so instead i will just do a simple run down with may b dates and events and a lil comment about it so that i can get over with it, not that its gonna b too much fun any more that way n with no pictures, but i guess that’s the best way possible for now. Otherwise the LAZY ME will never get on with it. So here i am breaking the ice!!!

10th January: Hubby n I came back from Thailand (our long awaited Honeymoon trip of 10 days), over all it was amazing, plus my best friend lives there so was a good reunion too, had a lovely time there, also had a 2 nights 3 days short visit to Pattaya. Simply loved it 🙂

12-15th January: Attended my friend’s wedding here, was the main reason to come back to early otherwise i prolly wud have stayed back with my friend and hubby cud have come back for his work, but i guess every thing happens for a reason and am glad i came back with hubby 🙂

27th January: I found out the best news of my life, the news i had been waiting for, for sooo long 😀 YES i am pregnant 😀 yayyy feels good to finally let it out on my blog here hehe. Hence it was nice i came back with hubby, he was the happiest on the news offcourse, so were my family n in-laws  Actually on 26th i just did a random test and i was sooo sure it wud be just one line and i thot to my self fine i will do it, not like am preggy, but when i saw a faint line i FREAKED out, i instantly took the pic of the strip n sent it to my best friend (god bless whatsapp) and she called and asked me to take another test which i did and the line was much clearer. but i wasn’t gonna get my hopes high, so on 27th i went with my mom in law (since we live with her) n got my blood test done in the morning. I came back from the clinic n then broke the news to Hubby that I think ur gonna be a daddy 🙂 i chked the result online at 3pm and it confirmed i was very much Pregnant. LOL now that i let it out here, i wanna keep writing it again n again lol (crazy excited me)

17th February: I had started to feel that i couldn’t take care of Coffee, (for new readers) the new poodle pup i had gotten in July 2012. I would still have to leash her every time i took her out for a pee and she wud wanna run and resist, the pulls started to give me strain and pressure in my abdomen and i knew with time i will totally not be able to take care of her, and hubby is mostly busy at work, so i cant expect him to be available for her walk around needs, so i had to take a decision and on 17th Feb i sold her, hoping she wud have a good life and will be taken good care of, since the guy who got her was all happy and stuff. so with a heavy heart i let her go. but the good thing was that she just went away, well in a way it was weird coz she didn’t even stop to look back she was all too happy to be going. good it was coz i knew she wud adjust there and wont have a problem  sad coz it made me feel that i still haven’t been able to make her MY DOG. Hubby had a big face made for 2 days coz he was too sad and wanted to keep her but i knew he will not be able to take responsibility as needed with time and it was best to let her go

3rd March: My doc told me that i really need to rest and take things easy, coz i kept feeling heavy and crampy and she said its not good. so i had some good long bed rest, Kept going to shops for various things on n off but mostly was trying to take things easy. LOL cant help it i am a restless soul 😛

21st March: i hadn’t told my gang till now, n it was getting frustrating, i wanted to just shout out my news, am not the person ti keep my happiness to my self but like every one says let the 3 months pass, let the risky time go and wat not, so by now I couldn’t hold the news any long and just HAD to share it with my gang so on 21st i arranged a dinner at my place, called my gang of 8 couples, after the dinner while the girls were collecting plates n clearing the table “Hibs” told me how she and “Nom” talked on their way to our place n guessed y i had called all on dinner, she said i said mayb she is expecting, or mayb her hubby got a promotion (they forgot my hubby works for himself so there’s no point of promotion :P) , i just looked at her smiled and said hey cant i call u all for dinner without any reason? 😛 hehehhe. Later all settled on sofas and i finally broke the news to “Natz” who had predicted last year that this year all of us will get preggy. so i told her dude ur prediction is true. and told “Hibs” ur discussion in the car was right, n then i started to blush lol. i swear it was totally unintentional. Hearing this Ana, K and M also jumped with happiness and they all congratulated me. The guys congratulated my hubby. It finally felt good to tell them and not have to lie why i am not making any plans or getting tired every time i go to their place and have my back aches and what not hehhee, i could finally b open to them 🙂 the girls screamed and danced and started going crazy about how they wanna arrange my baby shower lol i tell u they are some real crazy girls, n i love them to bits :)))

20th April: The guy who took Coffee called and informed that she expired 2 days back. had a slight accident in their store, where she was with his wife and some thing fell from the top shelf and broke her jaw. he took her to the hospital and the doc started to operate but she cudnt make it and died on the table. 😥 After hearing this i was furious with the guy that he cudnt take care of her n all. i was too sad, but later i also thought, now i might be selfish here but i thought that If she had to go at this time anyways am kinnda glad she was not in front of me, Coz i wudnt have had been able to deal with it especially with my slightly high rick pregnancy. 😦 May she rest in peace. I will always love her, I would attach her pic here for new readers but am still not able to see her pics, it still hurts. so those who don’t know about her can just scroll in my blog and see my pretty lil coffee cake. 🙂

27th April: Today i finally thot its about time that i share stuff otherwise i will keep sitting and before i know it it will be the end of this year. Now i will also start my preggy updates so those who are not much eager about it IF i mean may ignore it 🙂 Up till now i have been writing an every day diary of wat i eat, what i feel, symptoms, and any movements and wat i felt about them.my doc appointments and what meds she told me when, and when i had my ultrasounds, how my weight is going and stuff like that just so i keep an over all record, and also will may b telly it with my next pregnancy if needed. 🙂

Aaaah 🙂 Finally I can start from every day stuff i hope i don’t lazy out now 🙂 Hope u all enjoy my run down post. Keep coming back for more

love u allll n big hugssssssss
