After a long hiatus, I'm finally back to blog.
Still "under-going" confinement now but it will be ending soon in another 1+ weeks time! HURRAY!
It's so tough to have your confinement done during the April period! The weather never seems to help much, plus the temperature seems to get higher and higher each day. Luckily the past few days were quite cooling with the help of some heavy rain. Unable to bathe is a NO issue for me but with my MIL staying in my house, I have to oblige to it but thank goodness my Mummy bought the herbal shower pack for me so that I could at least soak myself in water about once a week. Actually I did sneakily bathe during my stay at mummy's place while she's at work :P *shssssss*
And yes, my most important task to blog today is to introduce my bundle of Joy! My baby Kwok! He arrived on 6-Apr 2010 at KK Hospital! I went through a 26 hours of labour but it's all worthwhile when I see him :)
Here's my birth story which I said I'll share the other time.
9:30am - Admitted into hospital for induction of labour
10:00am - After the monitoring of baby's heartbeat at Labour ward, prositiin was inserted to help soften cervix
12:00pm - Had my lunch at labour ward as there were no available ward for me to stay in yet
1:30 ~ 2:00pm - Yeah! Finally get to shift to my ward where I can sleep comfortably
2:30pm ~ 8:30pm - Contractions came in but bearable
9:30pm - Heavier contractions encountered, notified nurse and was sent to Delivery suite since I'm having immerse contractions every 2 mins
9:30pm ~ 3:00am - Having bad contractions and was so sleepy. Slept through out but the contractions wakes me up every min!
4:00am - Gynae came in to burst waterbag!! Wooo.. hot fluid coming out!
7:30am - Can't bear with the immerse pain so asked for Epidural aka HAPPIDURAL!
7:30am ~ 3:00pm - Painless labour but at around 1230pm, Epi ran out so was topped up with another one since I was only 7cm dilated
3:30pm - 10cm dilated! Was asked to push so was giving all my best to push to crown my baby's head
4:00pm - Gynae arrived and within mins, baby arrived!
It seems just yesterday that I've given birth but looking at the dates, it's 3 weeks already!
Baby Kwok will be turning 1 month next week and I can't wait to see the cupcake tree that I've ordered for him :)
Prince Charming took this for Baby Kwok and I'm loving it!
We're going to print it in Poster size for Baby Kwok's First Month Party :)

Tapping my fingers to await for my baby's arrival. Currently 38+ weeks and I've no signs of labour :( Most of my forum mates who are due in the 1st 2 weeks of April have mostly popped and I'm one of the few who've no signs of symptoms yet.
Baby Kwok, Baby Kwok... When do you want to come out?
Mummy and Daddy Kwok is waiting anxiously and excitedly for your arrival!
Plus, I don't even know how's contractions like! OMG!
I only know I've pelvic cramps/pain and I feel tightness on my tummy. Are these contractions signs? Praying hard that Baby Kwok will come out chubby, healthy and soon! :)
Oh, and hopefully I can lose at least 12kg of weight upon the arrival of my healthy Baby Kwok :P
