30th July 2009 - Happy Birthing Day

Went through a lot of procedures and finally had a emergency Caesarean.
Hubby quite reluctant for me to go for it as recovery slower and higher risk involved but Dr Ho was fast to decide to go for the surgery.

Morning of 30th July -
Me transferred from observation ward to Delivery Suite.
Waterbag broken, epidural injected and on drip, waiting for contractions.

First chart monitoring DouDou's heartbeat.
Second chart monitoring my contractions.
30 hours after inserting the tablet and 8 hours after breaking the waterbag,
contractions still not much and cervix only dilate 3cm.

Dr Ho suggested go for C-section at about 430pm.
The OT was arranged in about 20mins' time.
The nice anesthetist gave me a light drug to sleep so I was not aware when Dr Ho cut my tummy up.
When the procedure was done, I was woken up and the first thing I heard was my darling daughter (DD) wailing.

Believe it or not?
She stopped crying for a moment once they carried her over and put her in front of me.
Nice shot taken by the anesthetist.
