Welcome, Nur Durratun Nasihah

Nur Durratun Nasihah

On 21st of April 2012, officially, I’m a father. It’s already more than a month, but the sensation is still with me. Joy, happy, nervous, sad, scared; just name it. It’s all there & still stay inside of me. At that time, it’s not even a year since my marriage but I’m already been blessed with this beautiful gift; a daughter that later been given the name Nur Durratun Nasihah  :evil:

Chronology

20th April 2012, 0545, Seremban.

Received phone call from my wife; she’s in pain & on her way to the hospital. At that time, she’s at her parent’s house & we’re about 207km apart from each other. I’m not feeling very well at that time (blame the flu  :???: ), but luckily, I already prepared my backpack for emergency like this & after a simple shower, start my car & rush to be with my wife. Along the way, went to the office, run some errand & continue my journey at 0700. I hope everything will be fine.

Two & a half hour after that, I arrived at Kluang. I drove slowly because of my flu, that’s why it took a while to arrive. Made a phone call to my father in law to ask which hospital my wife been taken. My father said no need to go to the hospital yet, might took a couple of hours or even tomorrow for the baby to come out. I complied & went straight home. My wife had been transferred from the labor room to the normal ward. At 1700, I went to visit her & she told me she’s still in a constant pain but “the opening” is not big enough yet. I’m glad I made it. Went back home after the visiting hour is over & at 2300, I took a medication that cause extra feel of sleepiness (for my flu), set my phone to the highest volume & went to sleep.

21st April 2012, 0300, Kluang.

My wife called & this time, the pain is nothing like before & she could feel this is it. I’m glad I set my phone at highest volume :cry: Along with my father in law (because of the rush, he just wear a simple shirt & a sarong :!: ), we both went to the hospital. I don’t even bother to comb my messy hair. I don’t want to miss this! Arrived at the hospital, I went straight to the labor room. The nurse there asked my particular & later she confirmed my wife is in the delivery room already. I asked to be in the room accompanying her & the nurse asked me to wait. So I wait.

I wait until 0515. Suddenly, my phone rang & surprise, my wife called. She told me she delivered already. What?!? Nobody told me? Did the nurse forgot? Well, my rage of not being able to be inside while she delivered only lasted about 2.5 seconds. It’s all because she continue with “…it’s a baby girl”  :grin: Made a phone call to my parents at Johor Bahru, shooting a few SMS to my closest friends & relatives, & tweeting about the news. I’m so happy & I want the whole world to know!  :cry:

Around 0530, the nurse went out from the labor room, congratulate me & lead me to my wife’s room. I almost cried when I finally saw my newborn daughter with my wife. We already prepared names for the baby for either boy or girl. For boy it would be Muhammad Luqman al-Hakim & for girl Nur Durratun Nasihah. So, Nur Durratun Nasihah it is :kiss:

Nur Durratun Nasihah First Day

Nur Durratun Nasihah First Day

I picked up my daughter, kiss her for the first time, performing azan on her right ear & iqamahon her left. She just smiled after that. I looked at my wife and said “We’re among the luckiest person on earth; having this chance to have such a beautiful daughter”. My wife, still tired, smiled & slowly said “Yes we are my dear” :oops: I spend some time with both of them, until 0700. Owh how fast the clock ticking. Now, I need to give em’ both a good rest. I return home, along with the placenta (is this the right word for uri?). Probably, it’s a Malay tradition for the father to wash the placenta & later buried it. From 0300, I only have the time to rest at 1230. But, that’s nothing compared with the sacrifice my wife had made earlier, so, all is well  :smile:

21st April 2012, 1700, Kluang.

I went back to the hospital, along with my in laws. My wife said she can go back home after a few formalities been sorted out. So, basically I’m waiting for the GO signal from the nurse & I can bring both my wife & daughter home. We waited for about an hour, until I myself went to the head of nurse asking whether it’s okay now to take em’ back home. To my surprise the nurse said in an amazement tone “Eh? I thought I already gave you guys the permission half & hour ago? Nobody tell you anything? You can go back home long time ago”.  :twisted: You got to be kidding me. Hearing that, I rushed to settle the hospital bills, went to the pharmacist & filling some forms. Why the rush? It’s 1815 already & all the counter will be closed on 1830! :!: I managed to get it all done before 1830. Pheww  :eek:

Nur Durratun Nasihah Birth Certificate

Nur Durratun Nasihah Birth Certificate

It’s Monday already & I plan to register my daughter at the National Registration Department of Malaysia (JPN). All the document needed is available, so I didn’t expect any problem. No, wrong. The document is indeed available, but to my dismay, there is one part on the child’s birth form that been given by the hospital doesn’t contain the nurse signature. The dude at JPN instruct me to go back to the hospital & find the nurse to sign it again. Lucky for me, the hospital is not that far. Imagine the horror if the hospital is 200km away :shock: Arrived at the hospital to receive a shocking news that the nurse involved already on leave & will only be back on Wednesday. The problem is, I have to go back to Seremban on Tuesday, so I can’t wait. After some debate with the staff, they agree to make a new form for me. This registration supposed to take only about half an hour but I already endured 4 hours going back & forth from JPN to hospital & went back to JPN again :vangry: Finally, it’s official :cry:

This is the beginning.

It’s not right to end this post here, since my journey actually just started. I have a few ideas what kinda of father I want to be but realistically, I’m going to take it all one by one & no rushing. It’s quite exhausted, from the first day I rushing back home till the day I register my daughter at JPN, but it’s all worth it. I’m not doing all this for anyone else, not even me. I’m doing all this for my daughter. Welcome to our life Nur Durratun Nasihah. May your smile stay the same way as I saw it the first time. And may all the hardship that the world can throw at us seems so light. Together, we can rule this galaxy.  :razz: Enjoy her earliest moments below  :cool:
