Post-birth

After birth I was transferred to the post-natal ward. The room has 6 beds, but it was quite spacious, and there were only 2 other patients there. I get to choose the bed next to the windows. There was a small bassinet for Mia. When we got there it was around 7pm, and visiting hours was going to end at 8pm. Immediately upon getting there, I went for a shower (mandi wajib terus) while my husband looked after Mia. Last time with Adam I was scared to have a shower, scared to go to the toilet to pee etc...I had a terrible first night as a mother, feeling sickly and unable to sleep..but this time, I was determined to feel fresh and healthy as soon as possible. To my surprise, the showers and toilets in the hospital was in excellent condition, even though they are shared toilets. in fact, they are more well-equipped, modern and cleaner than the private bathrooms in Ampang Puteri were. I had a wonderful, revitalising shower...even put on a little bit of lip gloss ;) and afterwards I felt great....I felt fresh and clean..even energetic, despite the fact that I just battled through the long painful labour...

I totally recommend this to anyone. Don't be scared to pee...insyaAllah it won't hurt..and the shower would really help soothe you aches and make you feel fresh..plus mmg wajib pun..

Mia is a wonderful baby...she is true to her name, a very peaceful baby...alhamdulillah..up until now, she hasn't been crying for no reason...or caused me any trouble...she barely cry at all...when hungry or in need of something, she only makes small sounds...the only time we hear her cry loudly is at bath time, and nappy changing, because she doesn't like getting cold...even the midwife who came to visit me at home yesterday commented ' Is she always this peaceful, or did I just come at a good time?' Alhamdulillah...I am so grateful for this miraculous gift...

You might be wondering how Big Bro Adam is reacting to this new addition to the family..hehe...the first time Adam saw Mia, he looked a little surprised..and then immediately he wanted to kiss her...Mia was in her moses basket..Adam made kissing sounds muahs muahs..hehe..I picked her up and then he kissed her...comel jer...

His life basically goes on as usual...main mcm biasa...he is quite caring towards his sister...when she cries Adam try to pujuk...peluk...and he'll tell me...'Baby, ngis (=nangis)'..then ckp kat Mia ' ok? ok? (are you ok?)'. Only at night, at bed time, he wants me alone...no baby...this is the only time I can see him wanting full attention from me...if I'm feeding baby, he doesn't care..angkat kaki peluk Mommy...so we take caution now...when it's close to bed time, I make sure i feed Mia properly...then passed her to Daddy...then I stay with Adam in the bed room just the two of us...until he falls asleep...Alhamdulillah Mia is ok with this arrangement :)

You know, the real hidden hero in this story is....MY HUSBAND. He has been such an amazing father and husband....He is taking care of all of us in every way...he's doing all the cooking, breakfast lunch and dinner...he takes care of Adam, changing his diapers, layan his kerenah....he bathes Mia in the morning...he lets me rest and nap...he takes out the garbage and does the grocery shopping..right now he's at the market buying fish and even took Adam with him so that I could rest..at night when all of us are asleep, he is on the laptop doing his office work...

To my wonderful SuperDaddy, thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate what you're doing for us...I love you bang...

bina said...

salam, tahniah aida. mia is cute.

elle, ya mandi wajib selepas bersalin - namanya mandi wiladah.u boleh google for mo info. "Wiladah ialah darah yang keluar mengiringi bayi dari kandungan ibunya. Mandi wiladah ialah mandi kerana bersalin dan ia wajib kepada setiap wanita yang bersalin. Dan diwajibkan juga mandi hadas sekali lagi setelah kering darah nifas"

JOELY said...

ibuhannah said...

Aida,

It's good to know that you are enjoying every minute of it. Hope you have lots more minutes and days and months of fun with the three of them. =) take care.

ibuhannah said...

eh lupe, do you have all you need here? esp bengkung? if you dont, you can use spanx you know. It's really good. If bengkung kan buat susah nak jalan, plus kena pakai kain, nanti takut sejuk pulak. spanx bodysuit tu, use seluar. so very convenient. Does the job just like any other bengkung.

MommyAdam said...

ernie,
you think she looks like me?yay!!hehe..

Chalice Lindgren said...

She’s such a cute addition and blessing to your family. How sweet of Adam that he welcomed her baby sister wholeheartedly and without being jealous. Mia must be a grown up girl by now. She’s almost 3 years old now, am I right?
