Very funny Labour room dramas..hehehehehe
Hi Stella..would love to share my experience with fellow bvs and also encourage those already scared of delivery.
I conceived 1yr after my marriage..i would say i had a stressfree 9months journey..sometimes i would feign sickness so that hubby wont think its soo easy...
Fast forward to 35wks i was at work one afternoon when i started feeling cramps..i didnt really take it as anything..called my mum and told her and she started firing prayers.
I had this customer that came in and she needed serious attention..she was having serious arthritis pains n couldnt stand i had to give up my seat for her to sit..that was how i ended up standing for close to 4hrs attending to this woman..all d while i was still having d cramps.
The next day was my antenatal visit..dressed up for work n told hubby to carry me to d hospital so il see my doctor sharp sharp and get back to work..i just reluctantly put my baby bag in d car..
Na so i go hospital went for routine tests n climbed the stairs to go for their health talk..as i wanted to buy my favourite (fanta and eggroll) i just heard 'POOM'..my water had broken..went to the labour ward dripping water 'upandan'.
The doctor checked me and said i was 2cm dilated and he wont allow me go home..by then the cramps had increased..I was admitted in the maternity ward..hubby was busy taking selfies of me anytime i change my face .i just had to pursue him cos at that point he was not helpful.
Around 5pm i went to call the nurses cos it seemed dey forgot about me.. they were like i should better go home cos i wasnt looking like someone that wanted to give birth..convinced one to check me if i have opened up n she said i was just 4cm..begged her to take me to the labour room cos i was bored in the maternity ward.
Getting to the labour room doctor wanted to check me n his hands couldnt enter..he started querying the nurse. i just do ear as if i no dey hear them..thats how these people left me there from 5-8pm..my phones where not with me and hubby couldnt enter..i was hearing screams from the other room and i said to myself if i dont scream they wont answer me
na so i start to shout..as first it wasnt loud then i intensified it and they came around.
Dr checked me again n i was still 4cm n he said i was going to birth my baby in the morning..
Told someone to help me tell hubby what he said..hubby called my mum n told her..na so my mama talk say lai lai so i would be in pains till morning..she start to dey fire prayer..she no no sey na sleep i dey sleep inside labour room..around 10pm i begged one of the cleaners to allow my hubby come inside to see me cos i knew he would be worried sick outside..when i heard his voice i just change face and started screaming make this man no think say i dey enjoy inside there...
Immediately hubby saw me from the door he started crying.. he was like 'hey baby please dont give birth again i'm so sorry bla bla bla'..He asked the nurses if anything bad would happen to me lol.. na so nurse start to shout for am ooo..told him to get out of the labour room if he cant stand the sight..
Around 10.30 i felt this strong urge to poo..by then i was alone with only 2nurses..those ones where just gisting their lives away..i started telling them i want to poo..nobody even answered me or told me what to do..continued screaming until one of them had mercy on me and pointed at the toilet..i carry my body stand up go toilet..As I reach there i see one 'patient care assitant' wey just baff finish dey rub cream..for my mind i say where this one dey rub cream dey go dis night..anyway sha no be wetin carry me come toilet...
By then i was sooo pressed i just sat down on the toilet seat to poo.. Immediately, i felt a big stone wanted to come out of me...I started shouting 'ITS NOT POO OOO ITS THE BABY'S HEAD'.. the woman no even send me she just dey rub her cream dey go..I carry myself stand up and managed to go back to my bed..
I told the nurse i was still very pressed and still felt this urge to poo...she came to check me again and before i open leg finish she could already see the baby's head..she ran to call the Dr... doctor was shouting for her say no be this woman him check now now..He reluctantly came and said i should open my legs..
By this time i was having very serious contractions..i kept on telling myself that this is menstrual cramps and i will pull through in a short while.. the doctor started talking with me and gisting so many things i didnt even hear..the only thing i can remember is him saying i should just take it easy and push only when i am told to..as he was still talking and the nurses were trying to set up the place na so i just do as if i wan shit
They were telling me to wait that its not yet time akuko...i just push one push and my pikin comot...everyone was so surprised including me cos i didnt know when i pushed...all i felt was that my tummy just went inside immediately as if a big ball was taken out..
That was when i started asking them if i should push...they said nothing to push again nah..i said my placenta nko lemme push it out nah..they started laughing at me and told me congrats that everything is out..
My people na so i use born my pikin ooo..very tiny oyibo pikin...she was 2.8kg when i gave birth to her..at first as a naive FTM i was, I was always feeling bad when i saw people with bigger babies.. i didnt know i was really blessed to have a small baby at birth..
Now she 5months and weighs almost 10kg..i keep praying my subsequent deliveries will be like the first or even easier..
God bless you all
Hahahahaha very very funny to read.
Your hubby was taking selfies,he no sabi say he go cry later?hahahahahaha
Well done Stella.
Now to my story because it may be long though not sure this section is for all type of delivery since i didnt experience labor since I had a booked cs. My baby is chairman Never turned all through his stay in mummy guess he was just comfortable with his position. When I was 39 weeks the doctor told me during my ANC that " madam hope you know you are going to have CS because you baby has never turned before. Chai thanks to Google and mil that kept on praying I was going to deliver like the Hebrew women I started asking him why he felt my baby wont turn. He was like madam it your first pregnancy and you are just a week to your EDD so there is no space for such to happen. I told him I still have a week and will wait since I believe baby can turn even during contractions as mil told me.
Omo I went home that week during different exercise I saw on YouTube to help him turn for where the baby kept readjusting to balance well sef. On my next appointment the doctor asked ''madam are you ready now since you are term and the baby can come in anytime so you have to decide now''
I asked can't you turn him with your hands he was like No no we don't do that here and definitely not for first pregnancies and that if i start contractions now it will be two in one because I will be in pain and still have to go for CS so I should decide fast. So I was like when do I come in he said tomorrow. Ah tomorrow bawo when am not prepared yet he asked what I wanted to prepare for, since it not me doing the work and that the Hosp was having a complete team the next day and the next time they will have all such again was in four days . I smiled and said I want next four days so I can prepare well. Na him d Dr ask if I enter labor right now will I ask him to go back that am not prepared yet. That was when it dawned on me that it is time to meet my son.
I was scared because of stories we hear about cs so I felt it was a 50:50 tin. Naso I call hubby crying for him to close from Work that I have to be checked in that night. so i went back home to cook and eat and stock the fridge since I know I won't be able to do that after the cs and it just hubby I have as other relatives where far and won't make it till like after 3 days.
Checked in around 11pm and hubby slept beside me In the ward as I was scheduled for 10 am as the second cs patient the next day ....so early by 7 hubby left to Work to drop some document and apply for leave. He just left an hr hoping to be back in time for him the cs as he was to go in with me.bt lo and behold the nurses came in saying I was going in first that the other patient baby ain't ready yet. Omo con see cry I said no o that hubby must be with me and he was coming back in another one hr.come see different nurses preaching to me to go in that it doesn't matter it the doctors that mattered.
Stella me I didn't agree o we had the fun together we should go through together I needed him for strength they begged and begged for 45 mins before the matron enter like craze woman saying the Dr were called in and they have other appointments so I reluctantly agreed come see tears I had never Cried that much I was wheeled in crying and the other matron asked what my problem was since they also had hubbies when I said ' my husband in a 3 year old voice. Naso I dey shake like person wey get pneumonia I shook form head to toe even my lips were vibrating naso the Dr to give me the paralysis injection said madam please calm down I need to get the right spot. I said they should please off the Ac that I had cold the drs said madam you don't you are only scared and that the Ac were off and would soon be on once the operation starts so that they won't be sweating.
I begged they off for 10 min and they laugh saying the Ac has not even been put on that day that I should look at the socket that it just fear. Omo naso I start cry again o. Luckily for me hubby showed up dressed like a surgeon then the Dr were like welcome oga pls come close so that your wife can stop having cold. I was relieved so they started o.It didn't last more than 10mins when I felt they were sowing me I asked hubby where is my baby and he said the nurses are cleaning him I asked why I didnt hear him cry naso the Dr asked the nurse to beat him so I can hear lo and behold he did I was happy. I was wheeled back to the ward and I started feeling pain like I was still opened I asked hubby to check if it was closed well he said yes and it even plastered .
chai I cried silently the pain was hell.I asked for pain killers but they said I had to wait for four hrs na him they ask if I wan feed my baby omo I said no o.I was in pain that I didnt want to be touched. It not easy o cs or virginal but the joy is always our kids. I wonder if am to choose what it will be because both are painful
My baby will soon be one I have attached his pix for you alone to see my chairman .....
*All these fine kids una dey show me dey make me hungry for more kidsssssssssssss.please kiss your baby for me.
