I am not too posh to push. I am just so damn scared.

I sometimes get 'that look' when I said I gave birth to Husayn via c-section. Until today I think I've chickened out during those intense labor moments. I do feel like a failure sometimes whenever I think of the time that I did not manage to push Husayn out of me. Oh and somebody on the net did mention that mommy who choose c-section is selfish.

First of all, I would like to clarify that it was the doctor that suggested I undergo the c-sect. Husayn was nearly lemas in there and his heartbeat is getting too low for comfort. My mother did say the doctor was probably creating excuses to make more money since I gave birth at a private hospital. But then to be honest, during the chaos of giving birth I don't really care. I just want my baby to be delivered safely and c-sect or not, it does not matter.

Have you ever heard the term too posh to push? According to Urban Dictionary here, it means "Prospective mothers who opt to have an elective caesarean section rather than give birth vaginally. The women who make this choice are usually thought to be of higher class and wealthier. The choice for a c-section is made because it's thought to be more convenient as well as less painful and distasteful". And their best examples are Victoria Beckham and Britney Spears. Well, I think most Hollywood celebrities opt for c-section anyway.

My favourite Hollywood c-sect kid is none other than Kingston Rossdale - Gwen Stefani's kid!

I honestly don't think undergoing c-sect is less painful though. After my c-sect it took me nearly 2 weeks to walk properly, laugh or cough without the pain and more weeks to breastfeed your child while lying on your side. If I have a choice for my future second kiddo, I honestly will try the normal birth procedure first. After all my mother keep saying that c-sect kid is more hardheaded and degil compared to normal birth kid. And Husayn is certainly trying his hard to set a new standard in the family in this area..hahah. So I would love to see whether what my mother said is true or just a myth. Oh well..

The world is peaceful when he is asleep. heheh

ps:Anybody going to Mommy Lyna's pot luck gathering at Taman Tasik Shah Alam this Sunday? I will probably be there but I have my futsal tournament the day before..so I hope my legs will function just fine. Hehe..

Saya pun c-section juga
saya sudah lalui semua yang normal...hehehe
tetapi..adalah risiko patah bahu atau senget badan anak bakal lahir jika saya memaksa mengeluarkannya melalui 'pintu'..saya hanya sependek 153cm..manakala anak saya adalah seberat 4.41kg...55cm panjang(?)..35cm diameter kepala
saya tidak merasa bersalah mahupun loser bersalin c-section kerana...wahahaaa..sebaik sahaja 'mengeluarkan isi perut' berat saya turun 20kg! hahahaaaaa
selama beberapa bulan saya membawa 20kg lebihan itu satu pencapaian menarik!

and as for sakit bersalin c-section....tidaklah sakit macam nak mati..sakit biasa-biasa sahaja..sakit lagi kontraksi..(ouch!)
saya 1 week dah boleh panjat tangga pasaraya..wahahahaa....terpaksa pergi sebab anak tak de baju beli saiz newborn..anak yang lahir saiz bdak 2 bulan..mana I tau anak I membesar gitu!lupa plak daddy dia GIANT!
opss..panjang pula komen

Dee said...

apa2 pun yg kita pilih itu adalah hak masing2..mcm sy..i hv too..my first child ngan uri betul2 kt bwh pala..n my 2nd child sbb baby x engage n my old scar boleh terkoyak balik..n the doc said that he will only save me not the child...so, i think the best is c-sect...janji dua2 selamat..betul x intan? sbb dua2 pun ada sakitnyer..bezanya..normal before bb kuar..n c-sect after bb kuar..
