You are doing a fantastic job. My day isn't complete till have read all post for the day, which makes me sleep late at times, although I do carry over. ......
Now my LRD, not 'drama' really. As a first time mum, my pregnancy wasn't so eventful, apart from having to vomit everything within me whenever I fail to eat before 8am, and unfortunately, I just didn't enjoy food that I cook. So I turn to a buka faithful, but when I tried some of these joints after I resumed work, I still wonder how I managed to eat those food cause I can't stomach them now.
So back to my story, my edd was still about 2wks, although I did a 4D ultrasound that gave an edd which was about 10days earlier. So when the day came, baby didn't show,although I had planned going out that day, but once I was ready to leave, you won't believe that I couldn't walk out of the house not to talk of reaching the gate. I just cancelled my outing and rested, felt better few hours later, this was a Saturday.
I continued with my normal activities during the week, on Wednesday, which was my last day at work, ran a lot of errands and used the stairs about 5 times cause my office is on the 3rd floor and the lift wasn't functional.
Finally settled on my seat around 1pm, had to clear my table and was finalizing my handover. At exactly 2pm, I felt a warmth all over and noticed I was wet, went to the convenience discovered my water had broken. Had to ask a colleague to drive me home to pick my bags, got home, had to finish packing, had my bath and even poo.
We finally got to the hospital around 3.55pm, I wasn't feel pain yet, a nurse attended to me at the reception, so I walked in to the delivery room and all the midwives and nurses were like 'what do you want, this place is restricted', then I said ' I think am in labour', some laughed and one replied 'you think!!, if you dey labor you no go tink o'. Another said ' said na your first time abi, I said yes, so was told to remove just the pant to check how far gone I was, this was about 4.15pm.
The midwife that checked actually screamed that 'what!!! U don almost reach 10cm, another round of talk started, 'wetin u dey do for hause' , u no get contraction' 'so if ur water no break u no go come'. As they were talking my mind wasn't there, cause after the check, more blood was gushing, had to quickly remove my clothes and as I laid down, the contraction hit me, I started begging baby to please come out...lol. Had my baby at 4.25pm.
I hail women who have contraction for hours, that 10mins, was 'heaven on earth' but I thank God for that wonderful experience. My boy is 3years now and have gone again. I will send the 2nd supernatural experience.
Wow!!!...yours just made everything sound like Child's play.I hope your second Journey turns out as easy for you.
I never knew I was pregnant oo. Six months after marriage I wasn't ready for a baby. I was menstruating as usual and everything was fine.
Only for me to be giving a presentation at the office in the presence of top management and I fainted.
Omo, see rushing to clinic when I didn't wake up after one minute. I got there and after examination and tests, the doctor said I was already three months gone. I just started laughing hysterically.
My PA reached out to Dh and he zoomed to the hospital and was greeted with baby news. Naso the guys sef burst laugh oo.
I had an uneventful pregnancy oo until I was 8 months gone.
Baby decided to start acting up. Na so body go dey scratch me ehn. See ripe farts. Chooi, the mess go dey leak out everywhere. I went to shop with Dh and I polluted in the presence of a young boy. You can't imagine the expression on his face. That day was horrible. Every step brought forth one smelly loud fart. It was like that until I got to the car.
Labour day, I had strange energy. I didn't know I was in labour sef. I carried jerrycan and I told Dh I wanted to fetch water. My oga nearly died. 'baby the taps are running now'. I didn't hear oo I went across the street and fetched water with jerrycan on my head 6 times. My hubby followed me and was begging me. I didn't answer him.
Neighbors kept on hailing me and yabbing him. Immediately I dropped the jerrycan ehn, my water burst. See speed. I was rushed into the car ooo. On our way to the clinic, I suddenly shouted, 'baby park, park the baby wants to come'.
My dh teeth were shaking, see prayers. He jumped to the back seat 'baby, what are we going to do'. I told him 'close your eyes don't look at me'.
I was pushing and screaming 'don't you dare look'. I caught him looking and I slapped him while screaming and pushing.
I pushed the last time and my girl slid out. People were already surrounding our car by this time and I kept on hearing, ' e be like say person dey born'. Dh entered the car with speed and drove straight to the clinic.
I didn't even know how I got to the clinic bed. I was busy smiling down at my girl.
My oga reminds my daughter anytime she is cheeky 'you that your mother slapped me before she could push you out'.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAHAHAHA teeth shaking reminded me of scooby doo cartoon series.
You slapped him for looking?Bwahahahahahahhahahahahaha
