  • 1:00 pm:  Pregnant at 39 wks+ 4 and go in to KKH due to spotting.
  • 12:35 pm: Waiting for M.O. to come and check me.
  • 2:45 pm: M.O on duty, Dr Carrie Ho comes and checks on me. She says I’m only 1cm dilated. I have two choices:1. ) Induce labour and if it fails, I’ll need a C-Section.2.) Go home and wait for spontaneous labour (i.e. either waterbag bursts, or intense contractions).
  • 3:00 pm: Not sure what to do, so I call mum, mum-in-law and cousin for opinion.
  • 3:45 pm:  Decide to head home to wait, after hearing the C-section part of the news.
  • 5:00 pm:  Wash up and try to take a rest. Spotting is starting to increase, but I decided to wait and monitor.
