parentcraft class and baby shopping

Last weekend banyak buat preparation for Adam’s arrival. On Saturday we went to the hospital for the Parentcraft class. The topic was labour and post natal care. Masa citer pasal labour tu for the first time rasa seriau jugak tgk the pics as the nurse explained the three stages of labour, esp bila part episiotomy, aww! The nurse said it’s rather common for the doctors in this hospital to perform episiotomy to avoid natural tear which might be worse. I felt fine upon hearing that but afterwards I read a completely different view on episiotomy on the babycentre weekly update. They say episiotomy is no longer practiced frequently because it cause even worse tearing (lebih kurang mcm kain yg terkoyak sikit, lebih mudah nak koyakkan lagi) and difficult/long recovery. Must remember to discuss this with Dr Fauziah.

Tapi kalau nak compare rasa takut and rasa excited tu, rasanya rasa excited nak jumpa Adam tu melebih2 sampai kalau boleh secepat mungkin nak go into labour so that I can meet my baby..hehe..tapi takpe, Adam stay dulu in Mummy’s tummy until you’re ready to come out, ok..

Alhamdulillah the hospital is pro-breastfeeding. Lps je deliver, nurse akan pass the baby to Daddy utk azan/iqamat, then pass to Mummy immediately to initiate breastfeeding. Formula is absolutely forbidden unless betul2 problem. I heard some hospitals won’t allow breastfeeding within an hour after delivery or rooming in.

On Sunday we went to Alamanda and Jusco to get the rest of Adam’s stuff. Bought his cot, my husband has been eyeing this one for a long time. Unfortunately they don’t have the colour we want in stock so they’re ordering one for us, we’ll probably get it next week. Beli jugak his bath tub and bath net, nail clippers, hair comb dan bende2 lain to complete our “Baby’s list”. Tapi ada jugak terbeli unnecessary items mcm rubber duckie thermometer for his bath (so cute!) and “Baby On Board” sticker to put in the car. We also bought some stuff to complete the “Mummy’s list”. Alhamdulillah most things dah settle. Lepas ni I don’t know if I’ll have the energy to go shopping anymore. Now skejap je jalan pun dah mula mengah2, sakit perut, lenguh, dizzy dan mcm2 lagilah. Kesian my hubby kene layan baby besar tempayan ni…huhu. I don’t want to miss out on the shopping though sbb seronok tgk barang2 baby ni esp dgn Daddy Adam. Nanti dah sarat sgt cik abg tu kene shopping sorang2 pulak..Anyway still ada very few things to buy. Harap2 laratla makyong ni jalan nanti...

My brother aka Pak Ngah Adam yang nak balik Malaysia soon dah belikan Adam’s stroller! Sgt cool stroller tu, ok! Cepat2 la balik..Semua org dah tertanya2 bila la Imi nak sampai ni…huhu..

as far as my 1.2cent knowledge, most of western countries skg give more priority on natural childbirth i.e. no induce labor, no c-sec (unless really need one), no episiotomy, etc. even they don't go straight for c-sec for breech & cases of baby passing stool dlm perut. & allow the lady in labour to be free utk legakan sakit like dancing, etc & even can choose ur own way to give birth i.e. lay on back, squat, water birth, sitting, standing, etc.

Malaysia & several Asian countries including Aussie still using the strict hospital method in childbirth. usually kene baring kt katil, ikut apa dr ckp & episiotomy is the must unless the doctor is really expert to prevent the perineum form tearing. & for any complication kene ready to potong especially kat private...

my gynae here will try as much as possible to have natural birth i.e. no episiotomi. tp sayangnya xberanak dgn dia la pulak...arap2 gyane kat KB tu pon sama la cam dr ni.

nt u kene tanya dr fauziah la mtd dia cemana :)

itulah, kene tanya dr fauziah camne. but still sbb i bersalin time raya ntah2 doktor lain yg sambut Adam..

tak risau sgt time potong, but risau time nak recover tu...camne nak gi toilet??uwaaa....hehe

bila you nak balik kb?boleh naik flight lagi ke time sarat?remember to bring your history from miri hospital to kb..

btw along, do you plan to take epidural?

i think bole diskas kut. like my case pun time2 mcm tu jgk. & last time ms pegi hispital tu, the nurses kata doktor tu akan stand-by.

usually orang lain take a week utk healkan luka tu. & derang ckp xsakit pun. hehe. actually kalo bole i pn xmo kene episio ni. tp dah beranak kat sini kang, degil2 nanti kene marah ngan doktor plak. muahaha. lgpun this mtd mcm dah wajib je plak kat mesia. everymom yg i jmpe semua pn xkisah je sal potong2 ni, siap ckp lagi, 'org putih kt TV tu nmpk mcm xpotong tp rasanya potong gak sket, kalo tak msti tekoyak rabak'. huahuahua.

balik 22hb sept nanti. at 37weeks. haha. sbnrnya 36 weeks je final nk naik flight tp nk kawtim ngan dr tu la. hahaha. yg penting, bawak buku merah. lgpun gynae kat KB is the senior to my gynae kat miri ni.

my hubby asked to take epidural. tp for me.. i think nak go w/o pain medication la. tp still nk bgtau gynae nanti, utk buat apointment dgn anaestatic in case needed ke pulak. tp kalo bole xnak la. hehe. sumer kawan2 yg amik epidural ckp, xpayah la amik.
