A Random Blog of Everything I like
9 months 3 weeks and 4 days after my wedding, the baby boy we have been waiting for is finally here 🙂
Welcome to our life Muhammad Fatih Anka, we’ve been waiting for you 🙂
My dream was to deliver him normally or vaginal birth, my Doctor also said that I could give birth normally about 80%…so there was a big chance for it. However, on 40 weeks I still hadn’t had my contraction. The Doctor told me that the baby was oblique, he was still not on his way so I still has zero opening. She asked me to either wait of do C-section or cesarean. We decided to wait.
To make him move to the right way, I did everything from walking to squatting, from making love more often to doing pregnancy exercises…I even went to theme park from 9 am to 10 pm (accompanying my students) so that I would have my contraction the next day….but nothing happened. That was on October 5.
On October 12, we went back to our Doctor and he was still oblique. She did a thorough USG check and found out that his neck was wounded twice by his umbilical cord, he couldn’t move because of that…so the final decision was to do cesarean as I was about to reach my 41 weeks. Later than that could be dangerous for the baby.
On October 15, I did my cesarean…that was my first ever surgery. It was a moment of fright but full of anticipation. My husband couldn’t accompany me, I went to the operation room all by my self…surrounded by strangers but one person which was my Doctor. I was anxious to see my son. At 6.46 am, he was finally came into this world…came into our life. When the nurse put him on my chest, I cried out of happiness…it was a moment so hard to describe, happiness beyond word.
I had to stay on my bed for 24 hours, fortunately my mother in law is an angel..she stayed by my side and help me around with everything. I didn’t care that I couldn’t get up from my bed for 24 hours because my son was sleeping next to me. He made me forget all the pain. The next day, I had to learn how to get up from the bed and how to walk again.
My comment on early motherhood is painful (from the cesarean and from breastfeeding) and tiring but full of joy and blessing 🙂 . Anka is such a lovely baby.
I enjoy everyday of my motherhood moment 🙂
I will close my post with the comparison of his USG image and his real face 😉
