Hi folks,

Mother's Day is approaching...have you started planning anything for your mom? I have been discussing with my siblings since a month back as 3 of us have got married, so we have both side "mothers" to celebrate with. So normally we would plan early so that we get to celebrate with our mom together.

With the radio station keeps repeating the ad for Mother's Day, I can't help reminisching that very FIRST CRY of my first child.

For those of you who have experience childbirth or witness one (being the hubby), do you still remember THE FIRST CRY of your first born/child?

I remembered when I was pregnant with my first child, I was not very sure what to expect. Even though I have asked and gone through every child birth article I managed to read, but still feeling nervous when the time comes nearer each day.

Even when the contraction happened, I wasn't sure whether it is a "false alarm" or for real! I called my mom to seek her advice, and finally talked to the baby, "Please, if you are ready to arrive, give mommy a clearer sign". And soon enough, I see blood spots and quickly took my shower and washed my hair as advised by my mommy friends because for Chinese, we have taboo for washing hair during confinement. So  I had better get myself cleaned thoroughly before the delivery!

And when I was wheeled to a room in the hospital at 9pm, the pain starts slow but steadily. The nurse told my hubby to go back and wait for phone call. I did not expect that, I thought he is going to stay with me till the baby arrive. And from experience, the nurse said, it won't be so soon. True enough, I only dilated to 9cm 12 hours later. Still, I have not have the chance to hear the first cry of my child in the labor room as I was pushed into operation theatre for emergency c-section.

So, the first cry experience for me would be when I regained consciousness (i was on full body anesthetics) and when the nurse finally placed my baby on top of me the next day. There wasn't much crying even then as my first child sleeps soundly and was just cooing softly. The loudest first cry I heard would be when I wheeled myself (with wheelchair) to the nursery room to nurse her..loud and thunderous roar of hunger I guess. Since then, starts the fun-filled and exciting motherhood journey for me. One which filled with much tears and joys. It makes me realised how much my parents have done for me. We are their first priority even since the very FIRST CRY!
