Every married women dreams of being a mum, which is such a joyous and exciting experience. My bundle of joy arrived when I’m in the 3rd year of marriage. Why I knew that I conceived her on July 2008?Because I’ve been keeping tracks of my ovulation day and my menses cycle.I even started to aware there is another living being inside my tummy before I did the pregnancy test!They call it mother’s instinct.I call it the mother’s love. Mother’s love are infinite.Mother’s love are unconditional.Mother’s love are forever.
The bountiful 40 weeks
The 40 weeks have been so captivating. There were some bad news though, I was suspected to have recurrent hyperthyroidism and pregnancy diabetes.Set that aside, I felt both eager and fear of the delivery at the same time. It was just getting into another world called motherhood.Will it be painful?Will it be easy?How long can it be for me to see my baby and hear her first cry?Can I endure the pain?
I used to be a naughty and stubborn child. Will I have the patience like my mother’s had?I have used to claim that I am strong and “berhati kering”.Will I have the courage to let my baby go on her own ways when she grow up?Will I have the courage to not shed tears when she become somebody’s wife?

My water broke at 12 noon while chatting on YM with few friends!!The pain did not come yet, it was just the feeling of a little “nak patah tulang belakang” @ simply translated, backpain.When I was in the car with my hubby and parent, I was dizzy with excitement and anxiousness.But I try to act cool so that my hubby didn’t panic while driving.The questions keep on repeating in my head.How she would look like?Would she be like me or her father?Will she have my eyes and her father’s hair? or vice versa?Will she know I am her mother when she first saw me?
It was so painful to bring another life to this world, but it was worth it.I strained for 4 hours before she came out to greet us . The good doctor told me after the strenuos 4 hours(that felt like 40 hours!), I have to be vacuum assisted because I had been exhausted and have little energy left. They were trying to avoid c-sect.And suddenly, after the doctor worked his magic with the vacuum thingy , it all gone away.The pain.The fear.The anxiousness.I cried out of joy , “Alhamdulillah….Allahuakhbar!” It was the child that me & my hubby been waiting to meet.To see her eyes , to hold her little fingers and to hear her cry for the first time.I swear to God that she looked into my eyes when the nurse gave her to me!!We named her ,Nur Dayana Insyirah( the light of braveness and soothing).Our bundle of joy, our handful of happiness which fits perfectly in our hands.
Here she was, at one day old…
