在新加坡坐月子



在新加坡家里坐月子一个星期多了。我们请了陪月来帮忙。妈妈和老师妈妈也在周末和刚开始时过来帮忙。但一开始就出师不利。陪月做了三天后,就说患了红眼症不做要回家了。害我们临时手忙脚乱。还好妈妈在很短的时间,又通过朋友介绍,找来了新的陪月。而这个陪月比起上一个要好一百倍。我想是因祸得福吧。如果那个旧的陪月还继续呆下去,我们反而会更提心掉胆的。哎,请陪月也是一门学问哦。

现在我还不大适应拥有两个孩子的生活。我知道我已经很幸福,有保姆帮我照顾小棒,有陪月照顾小小棒和我的饮食起居。但一想到坐完月子后,我就得和老公独自照顾两个小娃,我的产后忧郁症就要开始发作了。小棒是个难缠的家伙。她需要比别的小孩多的时间和耐心去照顾她。而现在又多了个小小棒,真的是很担心我们不能够应付啊!船到桥头自然直,只好走一步看一步咯!

昨天,大弟弟和太太还有妈妈特地从麻坡来新加坡看我和小小棒。还给我们带来了礼物和许多吃的,像麻坡新鲜的鱼,药材和我爱吃的荣成纯莲蓉饼。真的很感谢他们。老师妈妈也在百忙中抽空在周末过来帮我们照顾小棒。让我和老公可以有较多时间休息。她从我们生了小棒开始就是我们的多一双手,总是在我们有需要时,伸出援助。虽然有时人多意见多,有一些小风波,但我想我和老公是幸福的。我们都有爱护我们的家人的关心和帮忙,让我们在初为人父母的新生活里,渐渐的适应和尝试做好新手爸妈。

在网志上登了生了小小棒的消息后,也陆续收到了各位格友和老同学的祝语。真的很谢谢你们的祝福!

Here comes little little lollipop, Ke Xin (可欣)




Have to write this blog in English as i still not used to the Chinese software in my home notebook.

Our little little lollipop, Ke Xin (可欣) met us on 18th July 2008, 10:12am in NUH.

On last Thursday afternoon, i went for my usual weekly check up. After the checking, doctor informed me that the uterus neck still fully closed and i should not be delivered soon. But at the same evening, i discovered leakage of water.

Thus at 9pm, Jen Yan accompanied me to delivery suite. After cheking, doctor said the uterus neck is still completely closed but the water bag has burst. Thus they inserted a small pill to soften and quicken the openess of the neck. At 12am as the uterus neck was still closed, the nurse wheeled me up to the ward to rest while Jen Yan went back home to sleep.

At 3am, i feel contraction and when the pain is unbearable, the nurse wheeled me down to the delivery suite for epidural pain relief. Poor Jen Yan has to rush back to the hospital. At 5am plus, the anathesia gave me the epidural injection. Before that i was experiencing great pain and the nurses said the uterus neck is only 4cm opened. i really can't imagain the pain that a mother has to experience when in labour (the uterus opens for 10cm). i am sure if not given epidural, i will sure pain until faint...

At 9am the next morning, the gynae came to see me and he said he had an emergency surgery to do and will come back to me in half an hour time. At that time, my uterus neck was 7cm opened and i still can rest in peace due to the epidural effect. At about 10am, Dr. Lee finally came and i can start push out my baby under the guidance of the nurse. After less than 10 pushes, we managed to meet little little lollipop. Jen Yan managed to cut the umbelicial cord of Ke Xin under doctor guidance. And i feel so relieved that i have completed my "task" finally:)

Jen Yan has uploaded little little lollipop photos at his website. Feel free to browse through them.

天生小演员





老公用最近帮小棒拍的照片串成了一些故事。每每看到这些照片里小棒那些表情再加上老公的旁述,我就大笑不止。(可到这网址看看这些照片: http://www.pbase.com/neophotography/15yr2yr_old&page=7)


小棒最近超爱拿起电话,学着大人讲电话的口吻说:“我没有空”,“嗯,ok, ok”。讲电话时又表情丰富,时而皱起眉头,时而迷嘴而笑。我们猜想,应该是从保姆那里学来的吧!因为我们很多时候送小棒回保姆家时,都看到她在“煲电话粥”。小棒应该是长期耳闻目染下学来的吧。


小棒现在的学习力和模仿力都很旺盛。我们都觉得应该乘现在给她很多学习的机会。所以打算下个月带她去老公公司所付属的托儿所去试试看,希望她可以适应群体生活,和小朋友一起玩,一起学习,做个快乐的宝宝。
