Third Day~(2nd November 2008)

Same as the day before. people came to visit me. Because me, ayah and Ummi is going back to Kelana Jaya in a few days people living nearby took the chance to see me before I go back to my home. Still am tired. Lethargic I would say.

At night Ummi had to pump some milk for me as she will be going to tukang urut's house the next morning for two hours in the morning. So it will just be me and ayah at tok ma's house. Ayah have to give me milk from a bottle.

This is all I can remember~

until next time..

Second Day~ (1st November 2008)

Today is my second day in this world. Because I'm new to this world a lot of people came to visit me on this day and it's a Saturday too you know what I mean.

On this day people come and go just to see me. From morning until night. I was soo exhausted. Soo were Ummi and ayah. I can see it from their faces. We did not have enough sleep from the night before. I woke up every hour because of colic. At first Ayah did not know what to do as I cried endlessly. Ummi was too tired to get up. She was really weak. Because I cried soo much Ummi woke up eventually. Ummi just remembered that she brought baby oitment for treating colic and suggested that Ayah rub it on my belly. And so he did. I farted a lot after that and I slept peacefully until morning.

It is today that Ayah took a picture of me and Ummi. I was smiling in the camera. Ayah was soo proud that he captured the picture whilst I was smiling and showed it to everyone. I think this was the first smile or maybe I smiled the day before.
Ummi's note:-

The three of us was so exhauted by the end of the day. I was soo emotional that night I felt like scolding everybody.

Just a note to self, if anyone whom has just given birth let them rest for a week atleast before going to visit them. It is really tiring when you do not have enough rest and you need to entertain the visitors. It is just exhausting. Trust me, I know.

The first day~

Friday, (31st October 2008)

I did not get that much sleep, neither did Ummi or Ayah. Through the night I kept on crying. Ummi kept on giving me milk every time I cried. Still I drank very little and doze off to sleep.

Then morning came. It was subuh time that I had a hiccup and cried a little. Ayah and Ummi did not know what to do, so they called in the nurse. The nurse just told Ummi to keep on feeding me and that it is normal for babies to have hiccups. So that's what Ummi did. She forced me to drink. Because I am such a good girl I followed and drank. True enough what the nurse said, the hiccup all gone. Then the nurse came in again to take me up to the third level for a bath. Ayah followed as he wanted to watch how the nurse bathe Sofeah with excitement.

I was supposed to be discharge around 2pm but the doctor forgot to do my circumcision and also give me my bcg shot so we were delayed going back to Tok Ma's house. When we were ready to go back to tak Ma's house after maghrib time we found out that the lift did not work and that we may have to use the stairs, but the nurse would not let us do that because it's against the hospital policy. And so we waited. Lucky for us a few minutes waiting the lift was OK again.

Ummi's note:-

~Ummi bearly slept that night as the nurse kept coming in and out to check on Ummi's temperature and also blood pressure.

~Just before the hiccup incident around subuh time. An elderly nurse came in, and asked ummi whether ummi fed sofeah and ummi answered that sofeah only drank a little. The nurse worried and wanted to bring sofeah up to the third floor to feed her formula milk. Tapi Ummi Sofeah ni berkeras hati juga hendak breastfeed. Nurse tu dah macam paksa-paksa but still Ummi would not budge with her decision to breastfeed Sofeah. Bukannye Ummi tidak ada susu cuma it was the first time. What do you expect. If Ummi tidak ada susu lain cerita. Sedih rasa hati bile nurse tu nak jugak bagi formula milk(I thought the hospital breastfeeding friendly..hmm)...huhue..maaf la ter'emo la pulak. Bab-bab jagaan anak jangan main-main, lagi-lagi anak sendiri.Semestinya kita nak yang terbaik untuk anak kita. Susu ibu adalah yang terbaik..~

~Ayah and Ummi literally panicked when sofeah had her first hiccup. So we called in the nurse to help us. Disebabkan insiden ini Sofeah sudah pandai hisap susu...hehe~

~Ummi woke up that morning and did her mandi wiladah.

The Day Sofeah was born~

Thursday (30th October 2008),

9.17pm - My name is Sofeah binti Muhammad Syazwan Rahimy. I was born into this world at this hour. As I came out from Ummi I felt there is something wrong with my chest. I tried breathing but something is just not right. I cried as loud as I can. Something is wrong. Then somebody came close to me with this long tube and put it through my mouth. Uurrgghh, I can not describe the feeling but it did make me feel better and I was relieved.

After that I was handed to a tall man. He whispered to my ears. I could not make sense of it. Then I was handed to another person. This time the person is a women. She brought me to some other place. while moving to another place there were other people followed us. All were excited to see me. I do not know why. Maybe because I'm just soo cute and adorable. I was then put into a glass or plastic bed behind a glass wall. The people that followed me then just watched me from the other side of the glass wall.

I stayed behind the glass wall for a while. They did not even gave me a bath. I guess they were waiting for someone. I was right. They were waiting for that someone who I later call Ummi to get out from the labour room. Ummi stayed for quite sometime in there. After Ummi was all done they took me to her, since Ummi wanted to breastfeed me. Ummi does not want them to feed me formula milk.

I was brought into the room where Ummi was and everyone else was there to. When feeding, me and Ummi, both struggled. Ummi struggled with giving me the milk while I struggled with sucking the milk. I drank a little because I was too tired. I also know that Ummi was tired too. So we went to sleep.

Ummi's note:-

Because Ummi breastfed Sofeah that night and the lift at that hospital was not working at the time, sofeah get's to spend the night with Ummi. Ummi and Ayah was soo happy. The first night she was with us.
