I guess in my case, I can call it Children Birth story since I had two of them!! 😜
Today is supposedly the expected delivery date for our twins…
Owh, I think I forgot to introduce you to our boys..
Y’all, meet Adam… and Noah 😉
Boys, meet mommy’s blog reader 😘
We are not ready to put up their photo on social media yet. I hope you all will understand. But I’m gonna give you a hint… Adam looks like Bella when she was a baby.. and Noah looks like Tasha! It’s like deja vu seeing them, like looking at B and T when they were a baby!!
OK, back to the delivery date story. Today, August 23 is supposedly their 40 weeks in the womb, but they had to be delivered early at 36 weeks due to medical issues. One twin was smaller than the other one and my ObGyn worried about the well-being of the smaller twin, so they had to be delivered early.
I think you probably read my previous entry about me wanting to deliver vaginally. Unfortunately, I can’t. Even if I can, there’s a chance it will compromise our smaller twin. I don’t want to put my baby into that risk of fetal distress. I guess any mother would do the same, put aside your fear for your baby, right?
I’m still a chicken in the operation theatre thou..
Check out my chicken face! 😆
It was done under spinal anaesthesia. I probably have done thousands of spinal anaesthesia but when it comes to my turn.. omg! Hahaha.. I totally understand why some patient absconded from hospital to avoid operation because thats what I feel on my day of surgery 😆 I had to fake my bravery and pretend cool. Fake it until you make it 💪🏻 Thats what they say…
My husband was with me in the theatre (until the babies were out… then he disappeared to spend time with them.. ) Hahaha..
My surgery went well. Alhamdulillah. Once the anaesthesia effect wears off, it was urghhhh… I overlapped my painkillers to reduce the pain. By 8 hours after surgery, I was already walking to the toilet. But if you asked me to compare vaginal delivery and c-section. I choose vaginal delivery… Up until now, Im still scared to sneeze and cough. Hahahah.. whenever I sneeze or cough, I can feel this pricking pain at the point where there is a knot tied from the suture. So, enjoy your sneeze and cough while you can, people!!
So thats my birth story… insyaAllah I will update you the story about Adam and Noah soon..
