Finally the day that we've been waiting has come!!
It was 3 am in the morning when I decided to make a trip to the hospital, feeling that the contractions are getting closer to each others. I ca barely walk during each contractions. After a quick shower and light make up (oh yes, those 2 has been on my to-do-list before the hospital trip) me and Daddy went for a big labor. Max was asleep and stayed at home with my in laws.
After Daddy finished with all the registration, I've already settled down at the birthing room, on 3 cm dilated. As we've already discussed about our birthing plan with Dr. Aziz, to be allowed to walk around the birthing centre was on our list. So there I was trying my best to walk around the room, sometimes had a sway dancing with Daddy, it helped to make me feel better.
About an hour later, I decided to lay down. Contractions getting stronger and it was 6 cm dilated. I started to run out of breath at each contractions, the hypnobirth music almost couldn't help anymore, I decided to take the gas. I was then back on track again.
It was 6.45 am when I finally had that urges to push. But the nurse kept telling me to hold and it was the most difficult thing to do among all the labor process. I was still 9 cm dilated and Dr. Aziz was still on his way to the hospital, I got panic! I tried so many breathing techniques and moved to fews positions but it didn't help.
Around 7 am plus, Dr. Aziz had finally arrived, and with all the leftover power I had, baby had arrived just at few pushes :) It was very fast and much easier than when it was with Max. Well they said it gets easier by numbers :)
Zachary Altair Baraka was born at 2,8 kg and 51 cm length. And just like Max, I was immediately felt in love at our first sight. Well it was kinda de ja vu, as both of them really looked alike on their just-born face.
Aaahh... Love is in the air... our 38 weeks of waiting is totally worth it!!
