alhamdulillah, Watermelon made her appearance at 39+2 on Wed, 25 Jan 2017 🙂 i never expected to have to go through a 41 hour labour, but at least it’s overrr! Allah swt was most Merciful to allow me a gentle and easy birth in the finale, so i still have lots to be thankful for.
we had a lovely stay at NUH. i was telling NG that i especially like one of the nurses here, before changing my mind to say that no, actually i love her. hahaha. the nurses here have been *fantastic* and i would super recommend them to any pregnant mummies out there shopping for maternity services 🙂 and i will miss my hospital bed with its cool recline/incline buttons! hahaha.
so here’s to the start of our adventure + jihad as parents. may Watermelon grow up to be healthy and happy; steadfast in her deen; and learn to serve those around her. ameen!
