Birth of Baby No.8

29.09.14. The birth of my angel number 8. The story of her birth was super fast. I had severe back pain on the 28.09.14 starting from around 6pm. I brought my husband to Miri City Medical Centre to have a check up, just in case I was in labor. The nurses checked me and I was 2-3 cm dilated so I went back home. i woke up at 4.50am to make breakfast and after Subuh prayer with hubby and the kids, at around 5.50am, i felt the steady contraction, coming at every 10 minutes. I quickly fold a basket of clothes, swept the floor and took a shower. I told my husband that it's time for the baby to come (I was 37 weeks pregnant on that day) and we went to the medical centre.
 I checked in at the medical centre and they did the Fetal ECG and waited for my ob/gyn to come. Dr Lee came at around 8.30am and he looked at the chart. He told me that he need to do amniotomy and when he did, he told me that the baby had defecated in the womb and we need to get the baby out in an hour or the baby will drown. I was 6 cm dilated at that moment and he asked the nurses to push me to the labor room and induce me. FYI, I was induced in all of my labor and I can tell you that the pain was super high but you can control the pain by relaxing and as a Muslim, I recite the zikir Al-Fatah and ate kurma / dates whenever the contraction came. Alhamdulillah, after doing these practice during labor no.7 and no.8, the pain was not that bad!
At 8.45am, they started to induce me and I started to feel the pain 10 minutes later and to my surprise, I was holding the urge to push the baby and I was grabbing the nurse's arm (she was the wife of my brother's friend) and she told me to wait for the doctor who was on his way. At that time,  I was pushing the baby, and she was half way through and the doctor managed to catch her torso and bottom. Alhamdulillah, at 9.03am, Daisha Bazriqa was born at 37 weeks, 2.8kg, and her father azan and iqamat her.

My husband and doctor were amazed by the labor process and the doctor even joked that he is looking forward for baby no.9! Masya Allah!
I was discharged the next day and so, our journey continues with baby no.8 on board. May Allah bless my family. Aamiin.

Post Birthday Celebration

Assalamualaikum and a very good day to all readers. I've celebrated my 32nd birthday last 17th October. It was my 19th day of confinement on that day but I still wanted to celebrate my birthday with my children. My sister in law bought me a Chanel's handbag cake and she made mac and cheese, while I made Chocolate Coated Oreo, Cheesy French Loaves and Savory Muffins and Butter cookies. My aunt brought Nasi Daging and Mixed Veges.
Enjoy the photos!

Second half of 2014

Assalamualaikum. Masya Allah! It's been half a year since my last ranting. Updates? 4 kids going to school (Year 4, Year 2, Year 1, Kindy Level 1) and surprise surprise, baby no. 8 is on her way. Yes, HER, In Shaa Allah. Ramadhan (fasting month for Muslim) is just around the corner, less than 2 weeks. I really can't wait for that holy month to come though it would be a challenge to fast while 6 months pregnant, but needless to say, it's baby no.8! Experience is the best teacher. So, quick recap on what happened through out the first half of year 2014; twice vacationing in KL (one horrific experience of hives/allergic attack at the hotel that I stayed), baby no.7 started to walk at 11 months (she was born premature but she is a fast learner and now she's 13 months), Delisha (no.4) gets number 2 in her class for her semester exam (it was a big surprise, even her teacher was shocked because she is such a stubborn girl and will cry every time I asked her to study, Dayana (no.1) gets number 8 in her class and also number 8 out of the whole year 4 students (you go girl, show the haters that what we fought for last year was worth every action!), Danish's (no.2) left eye degree increased dramatically (375/3.75) and it's worrying me, though his paed said that it is something that can't be control if it's hereditary (both my eyes now are 500 degrees, though I was supposed to do LASIK last March but something funny and blessed happened - will write a post about it).
Will update more, In Shaa Allah.
