I thank God for this blog,may God continue to lift Stella high-AMEN.
If Stella can remember,I was the lady chatting with her through mails
while I was in the labour room,that was in August.
Well back to the main gist,I am a first timer,no drama all through,no
vomiting/spitting,everything went well to the glory of God till the day of delivery. I have high threshold for pain and I can exercise ehen.I did squatting,trekked long distance,ate fruits very well,drank water first thing in the morning from the day I discovered I was pregnant till labour pains started.
I did all this so I can have natural delivery.I went for my ANC as I normally do and the consultant told me that am having contractions(never knew that's how contraction is) that I might deliver anytime soon,I just laughed and told him to
give me my next appointment.
Fast forward to the following day,the pain started and there was this shooting,stabbing pain that occurred in the night after which I went to poo and left for the hospital.
Anytime I want to be checked how many cm's I have dilated,its always
painful.Well,I was induced the following day during the evening
time,oh my God,its was so painfullll!!!!!
Na there I know say the bible and God is real because of the curse of labour pains in the bible.
When the contraction pains starts,I will hold on to an iron and shake my head vigorously and cry instead of shouting. At a time,I felt like pushing but the nurse told me never to so as not to damage my cervix and uterus that I should breathe in and out with my mouth which wasn't just easy!
After being induced,I didn't dilate more than 4cm till the 3rd day,na there they began talking about CS which I feared most!(this was in the morning)
When the pain became unbearable(this was around 4pm),I started begging for CS as there was no improvement at all.I was later prepared and wheeled to the theatre.
While on the operating table,as I was about to be given spine injection,I felt one
bad painful contraction and I told them to chill because no mistake
must be made at that point as I was told to be still.I was eventually
given the injection and I felt a BIG relieve. I was asked what I
wanted,I told them I want to eat because I was so hungry by then but
they all laughed.My legs were paralysed and the operation began while
I was wide awake.
Within some minutes,my baby was brought out while I was stitched back. While I was being stitched,I started feeling pains and I was made unconscious. During the time of my unconsciousness,I didn't know maybe I was in heaven or on earth,I didn't understand what was going on anymore but I came back to life in the ward.
While in the ward,I was told not to lift my head for 24hrs so as not to have
headache.I recovered fast and was discharged on the third day to the
glory of God. If I had known,I would have opted for CS straight away
because its double punishment to be induced and later be operated on.
But if I will advice,I think CS is better instead of going through
pains only that in some years to come,I'll be 40 and I wish to get
pregnant again,the doctor advised I can start trying after 6months
because age isn't on my side but I laughed in chinese.This is my tales
This your LRD is really dramatic!...I laughed so hard when i got to the part where you said you begged for CS.....
The way some people react and reject when they hear CS eeeeh,na wah.Infact some stories just make me thank God that mine were CS cos my threshold for pain is funny..lol
