My 2nd labour story

EDD: 7th July 2007
Actual due date: 3rd July 2007 (4 days earlier)

1st contraction: 12.30am (very mild), waited till 2.30am when contraction happened every 5 minutes interval.

Arrive at hospital: 4.00am (only dilated 2cm)

At 4.15am: After all the registration procedures, I was admitted to the ward, then hubby left (if only he knows he need to be back so soon, he would have just stay). Contraction pain is still manageable at this time.
At 4.45am: The contraction suddenly became so intensive, my whole body is shivering due to pain & I was cold sweating as well.Between 5.15am - 5.30am: Doctor said I was only 3cm dilated, baby's head still quite high & she then decided to break my water bag & send me to labour room to induce.

At 5.37am: Admitted to the labour room & I immediately called hubby to come. (I have the call record that's why I'm so certain of the time I was sent to labour room). Doctor checked & I was already 6cm dilated, & she decided to give me the drips. As she was preparing that, I felt a very strong urge to push and I was yelling to the doctor to have a look, she was also shocked to find that I'm already 10cm dilated & baby's head can already be seen.

She & the nurses quickly prepared everything and I just can't hold back anymore but to start pushing, without much effort (less than 5pushes), baby Kaith arrived to this beautiful world at 5.47am (yes, in just 10 minutes)

I'm proud that I've done it again, without any drugs (didn't even have the time to inhale the gas :P), without forceps or vacuum. But the only thing is that my hubby was not there to witness, even he has tried to rush there. (baby Kaith was too impatient to wait for her daddy....)

Compare with my 1st labour story when I delivered Dillon in Dec 05.
