Inside the Labour room,the pain is so bad that the Ladies swear never to do it again but.....*side eyes*
Hello Stellz of the good life, thanks for this wonderful platform that's saving souls from boredom.
Okay to the main gist, with my first baby, labour was sweet, my water broke at 37weeks and before I knew it, my baby arrived with less contractions. My husband and mum said I was lucky because through out the whole preggy period and delivery, it was smooth.
After 2 years, I got pregnant with my daughter and I didn't get to know until I was 14 weeks gone. When I got to 21 weeks, I was diagnosed with Pregnancy Induced Hypertension (PIH). My doctor said I will have to be induced at 38 weeks to avoid pre-eclampsia and other complications that comes with PIH. I wasn't bothered about the induction because I thought the pains will be just as my first.
Hmmm, 38 weeks reached and I went to the hospital around 7am with my DH, we dropped our son with grandma the previous day. When I entered the labour room, three other women were in labour pains, they were screaming and in my mind I was thanking God in advance for a painless childbirth.
Well, it was time for the process to start and the doctor started by inserting something in my vaginal. He said I should start walking around and once I feel any balloon like object coming out of my vaginal, I should signal the nurses on duty. As I walk round the room, I felt menstrual pains and I thought that was all, I also felt the ballon like object will be my baby coming out.
After 45 mins, I felt the balloon and told the nurse in charge, she removed it and gave me one injection. The injection felt like fire going through my body but I still maintained my cool. 5mins later, the pains started. I shouted Jehovah on top of my voice. My husband came in to pacify me, I kept quiet for a while and again the pain hit me. This time it was more painful.
When DH tried to touch me to bear the pains, I shouted at him to leave me alone that after all it was his fault because each time I insist he use a condom, he will say 'he cannot lick sweet with nylon'. He felt embarrassed because people were there and so he kept quiet oh. I sat on his leg and will scream whenever the pain comes. After 1 hour, I was given another injection and O'boy, the pain felt like I was dying.
I removed my robe and started hitting the wall. The nurse had to take DH and I to a separate room because there were male in the labour room and I refused to wear anything. I was just shouting and begging for CS. The pain was unbearable.
The chief medical doctor is a short man in his 60's, he's been away to perform CS all the while I was screaming. When I saw him passed through my room, I said 'Daddy, ejo ewa help me' (Daddy please come and help me) I said that for like 3 times and he did as if he didn't hear me, then I changed it to 'Baba kekere, ejo ewa now' (Short man, please come now) this time he replied with 'shey emi ni baba kekere' (am I Baba kekere?). All the nurses couldn't hold their laughter but the man still didn't come to me oh.
Three hours into the labour pains and I was checked by a nurse who said I have dilated to 6cm. Haa 6cm since? She said I should stop screaming, that the baby is scared because of my screams. I tried to stop but I just couldn't. The more I tried to compose myself, the more the pains scattered me. Well, the chief doctor came after 40mins and said he was ready to help me but it will be painful. I said ok daddy, just make my baby come. He told my husband to excuse us and then he proceeded to insert his hands into me. I felt his hands rupturing my membrane and I was too weak to shout sef. I was just saying 'Lord, have mercy, I won't do it again'. He did all that for 5mins or there about and when he was through, he asked the nurse to come and take delivery. As soon as I heard the word delivery, I didn't know how the energy come but I pushed with all I have left in me. 1, 2, 3, my daughter came and immediately I felt instant relief oh. The placenta came with the pushing. Chai, I laboured for almost 4hours and it felt like 4years oh.
My husband came in and I was too shy to look up. He hugged me and said thank God we have a boy and a girl now, no more babies. I said yes oh but my fellow bvn's, I am expecting my 3rd baby in a few months. Please wish me quick, safe and painless delivery oh.
God bless y'all
Stella it was indeed a thing to tell, my first pregnancy was not just easy for me at all, then I was in school and pregnant, I registered for antenatal at four months, follow up with my visits, fast forward to 8months I was told my baby is too big,and that I should reduce hand on my intake.
poor me I was then 23yrs and the thought of giving birth alone scared the crap out of me, adding to what I was told about Labour by some elderly people. I returned from the hospital that day, told my husband about it and he was like so what do we do now, the last time I visited they said I was under weight now the baby is too big, what do they want me to do Na.
My Hubby told me not to worry about it that if it gets to worst then we will go for CS .so fast forward to nine months then I was already prepared for whatever, my due date was still two weeks ahead but I started feeling pains at my back and waist, I called my gynaecologist told her how I was feeling, then I was asked to come over to the hospital, on my way to the hospital Labour started I was so much in pains, I told my hubby to speed up and it was as if the pain was getting worse and worse than it was every 5minute to 10min to non stop, never have I experienced such pain in my entire life before.
Getting close to the hospital gate my water broke and immediately my baby started coming out, I had the urge to push, I was in pains my hubby ran out of the car went inside the hospital and was shouting my wife is giving birth at the gate, before I knew what was happening the midwifes with the help of my husband carried me to the labour room and then I was asked to push again, I pushed with all my strength and pop my baby boy out, Hmm I was very tired by that time but it was not over as I have not birth my placenta.
About 30mins after I was asked to try pushing again but this time quietly while one of the midwife massage my tummy, I could see my hubby with tears in his eyes watching me,so I pushed again and deliver the placenta and that was it oooo. All the pains disappeared once I sight my baby.
We women we are strong ooo anyways my second pregnancy is just the opposite of the first one. Second was a consolation for me. GOD I THANK YOU SO MUCH.
Despite all the pains una still do it again.its pain you forget once you see the baby.that part up there i underlined cracked me up badly,i imagined your hubby running and shouting ''My wife is giving birth at the gate oooo..''
