The whole process was so dramatic....
Dr Ang asked me to admit to TMC around 9+. Right after leaving his clinic at 7.25pm, I went for dinner even though I dun have any appetite cos I know I was going to fight a hard battle in 2 hours time. HB and I went to buy that 3 bolsters as we will need it when my SL come over to our house to do confinement together. SL has almost the same due date as me and mum will be our confinement nanny. Tummy pain started the moment I was buying bolster. I quickly paid for the stuffs without bargaining (very unlike me) cos I couldn't think straight at that moment. The pain was too much for me to bear.
We left the shop and quickly trying to locate for taxi stand. I received a call and it was from Dr Ang. He told me he has reached TMC and asked where were I? This part was really funny cos he asked me, "Why were you still at Sun Plaza? Dun you know you have a history of delivering very fast? You quickly get here and I'll be waiting for you at level 2." I was thinking inside my heart, "I thought you said admit around 9+?" then "Why didn't you give me a lift there?" and "How could you reach TMC in such a short time?"
There was a long queue at the taxi stand and I could feel baby intense contractions. Yes, no choice, we had to cut queue. Who will believe us seeing our hands filled with shopping stuffs, I thought. When the taxi came, we told him we needed to go TMC and he said he couldn't go cos changing shift. We told him this was emergency and he agreed right away. Mr Joshua was a nice Mr Cabby. He drove steadily and I wouldn't say the fastest but his intention was to send us safely to Thomson. Luckily no heavy traffic too. However, the waiting and enduring inside the cab made me feel that the distance seem twice as far. Anyway, it was really far from Sembawang to Thomson.
Maybe Xenzel heard what the doctor said, 15 mins after he left the room, I think I was fully dilated already cos the urge to push was very strong. The nurse asked me not to push. I felt like scolding people already. I told her I cannot hold my urge to push, baby is coming and I could feel it. She insisted I cannot push and blah blah blah.....the moment the nurse saw Dr Ang came in at around 11.05pm, she told me,"Okay, you can push whatever you want."=.=
