Jambo, Jambo!

Jambo, Habari ('Hello' in Swahili:), smth new huh, just learned it from my burnt Chinese son, Aditya the Kenyan boy...Muakakkakka..
anyway, just a lil update from me.
Obs n Gyn officially started 2 weeks ago, and so far so GOOD!! Thanks to the nice peeps whom we met in this firm. From the midwives, SHO, registrars and consultants...everything looking UP UP UP:) Allrighty, the only downside of this firm is the long hours we have to wait in the delivery suite for babies to come to this world:P

Just last Sunday, we decided to try our luck, expecting to see a normal vaginal delivery. So after dinner, enthusiastically we went to the hospital! Woohoo, when the doctors told us there were 2 expected ones. GOooOd, then we took obs history from those women and waited! 1, 2, 3, 4 hours of the woman showed some signs to deliver..fully dilated YESSSSsss, we screamed in our hearts, but later on the midwife came out and told us, she couldnt proceed to stage 2! BAD sign....STRESS level shot up, midwives and doctors zooOmed her into the theatre coz this woman needed an EMERGENCY C-section! Ahhh, the whole surgery ended bout 1230am..but baby was healthy and not distress..phew! Sooo, our search to see a normal vaginal delivery continued.....

Thursday came, decided to try our luck again. Lily and myself prayed over dinner. 'oh Lord, the 2nd week of our attachment is coming to an end dy, and we have not seen any normal vaginal delivery!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, let us see one tonight! amen..' Okay, this time, i called the delivery suite to see any expected deliveries, and YESS..the midwife told me there is one..COME IN NOW! Ly grabbed her coat and ZoomEd..Yay, one down! One hour later, Ly called me and there is another one!! Allrighty, my turn! but too bad, by the time i arrived, the baby's head is out dy...sigh, missed! BUT BUT BUT, to my surprise the midwife told me there is another woman going to give birth, but it's her first delivery, so had to wait awhile..nVm, persevere on! waited a few hours till 1100pm..*gosh that lady was in soooo much pain:'(* 'Push push push+u're doing really well+come on, u can do it', all the encouraging words filled the delivery room...i doubt she was hearing wat we were saying due the severe pain she was experiencing. As she screamed with pain when the baby was coming out, i was literally screaming with her as well! Ouchhhh...i could feel the pain man, really deter me to give birth now! After 5 hours of pain, the baby finally came out safely...awwww, my first baby:) He is baby Charlie, weighed 3.060kg, arrived to this world at 2323! *whee* i went home with a smile that night:D *grateful for an answered prayer* My God is full of surprises, isnt He? Hopefully, more to come!

Nothing much happening this week. We need to stay in and start some solid revision coz exams in 1 month time. To avoid unnecessary stress later on, we better start early ya:P So, to beautify my post with some pics, let me show u guys some home-cooked meals for this week. Save some $$. Seee, we save money and learn how to cook ourselves:) *in training to be good housewife..muakkakak*

and as we were having our dinner just now, our dear PBL mate came in to the kitchen and gave us some Indian delicacies:) He just celebrated Diwali...and hah, we're remembered:) Felt so loved! Told ya, God sent ppl to bless us and put a smile on our faces!

Just got back from hospital..yup on a Sunday night:) just in time to see another delivery! But this time, it was fast coz it's the 3rd pregnancy for the mom! *good breathing technique, good skills and blup..the baby came out so easily:)* the so called 'text book' delivery by the midwives:) It's a she this time *whee*

guess wat, the registrar on call knew we stayed in the accom in the hospital and so she decided to bring us good food next weekend! Maybe we looked so pitiful..muakkaakakka. God always bless us with nice peeps indeed! *keep my fingers crossed for good food*
