Stockholm, Dec. 8(CED) — Today is my daughter’s birthday. On December 6, 2007, I went to the Nobel Prize Laureate in Physiology or Medicine’s Press conference in Nobel Forum on Nobel Vägen 1. at Karolinska Institutet. I wrote a story by 22:00 and sent back to Beijing. Then I went to bed. By 2:00 in the morning of Dec. 7th, I felt I got a little red blood. I know she will come out soon. The planned date was Dec. 8th. I began to feel the pain coming and I went to have a shower. But it could not stop my pain. Waiting until morning, I cooked some porrige and ate and laid down on the sofa again. After my husband woke up and had breakfast, we went to the hospital. The doctor checked me and said it was only one inch opening which was too narrow and asked me to go back home. I should come back when I had three times of pain in one minute. But I only had one pain in three minutes then. That night we still slept at home, but I couldn’t bear it any more. I went downstairs and laid down on the sofa again so that I could have my back on the sofa. After breakfast, we called the doctor again and she said now you could come with everything.

We arrived at the hospital by 13:00 and I went to the room to give birth immediately. She gave me accupunture needles to stop pain first, but it did not work, I asked for a mask to get pain killing air. Each time I breathe the air, I feel the pain is gone, then immediately it came back. I was sitting on the big ballon and they cut something so that the water really came out.

By 16:00 the baby still was not born yet. By 18:00 we knew the naval was on her neck. Immediately the doctor came over, drag her out and cut the naval thread. And immediately send her to the oxigen box. I felt dead quiet then I felt asleep too. When I woke up, she was on my chest with the little hand open, the fingers were open. She was born at 18:02 on Dec. 8th, 2007.
