Hi Madam Stellz,
I was the 1 that sent the 1st Omugwo chronicle, so pls permit me to share my LRD epistle.
I registered in a very good hospital (those in Ajah axis Lagos should drop comments let me recommend my hospital to you). I joined baby center online group, read other women's comments and learnt from them. I read Supernatural childbirth back to back and declared Isaiah 66 vs 7-8.
We were taught various exercises we can Engage in, how to manage labour pains and how to push when the urge to poo comes. My hospital was that good. We practiced all these during each clinic days.
My last scan gave me the D day my baby was going to come and I claimed it. Claimed it because it happened to be my favourite brother's birth date.
My last few weeks was the fuel scarcity period early this year, omo I made optimal use of it. I would carry the car and fill it with jerry cans (who go see Belle no sell fuel for me now). I worked till my last day being a Thursday. There was public holiday by weekend so the weekend was long.
The last day of the public holiday, hubby woke up around 4am to do some work, I woke up to ease my self too. I was already tired of being pregnant, so I initiated sex. Don't blame me I already read that sex induces labour. Oya now let's try it. We had sex and afterward I had my bath and settled to do some office work. We kept on gisting oooo until I just felt the urge to weewee. Immediately I got to the toilet, I saw the show right there on my panties. Omo I just screamed and shouted "Ife, baby is coming o). My husband just carried me and say eeeeeeee finally ooo.
Now before that hubby and I had said we won't call anyone when labour starts. That will just call them to tell them that our boy is here. But I have a sis of mine that both of us are 5 and 6. And that morning she just kept on asking me if I haven't seen sign. As a monitoring spirit that she is.(lol). So I told her that have seen show and she said she will pray along with me.
I went to my work after the jubilation because at that point I knew I had to finish the report and send it out. I ate and I later slept off. Woke to see my husband keeping vigil. I just laughed. He said No pains and I said Nah.
Later in the afternoon, his sister invited us to the club and I gladly took the offer. I did a very heavy makeup, told him to drop my delivery box in the car and we set out. When we got to the club, I ordered for rice and stew with Chapman. I ate it all. Went to their rest rooma and changed my pantyliner (still no pains o).
Around 6pm, his sister asked me to see her off to the pool side, on our way I told her I have seen show and no pain. Being a fearfear person, she asked us to start going to the hospital. Then I decided to call my mum and she too advised that we should go to the hospital.
I was feeling contractions, it wasn't just coming with pains. You know have been reading Supernatural childbirth and praying in that line so I was seeing it like and answered prayer.
We got to the hospital around to 8pm, that was close to 12hours after I saw show. The CMD checked my tummy and said I was contracting already that I should be given a bed. Told him No that I don't want to labour in the hospital. He said Ok wait let's check you 1st and see how far you ve gone.
It happened that I was already 2cm dilated and my baby had fully crowned. So we were advised to stay and I was given a room (self contain things #shines teeth).
Hubby and I decided to pray. While praying my phones kept on ringing and so after prayers my husband started shouting that why can't I just keep to our agreement. I just started crying cos I was already overwhelmed with the whole thing. He apologized for the outburst, collected my phones and switched off the data and mobile networks. The MD said I should take a stroll round the premises but we decided to do outside strolling. We worked a very long distance and we kept on praying on our way. When we got back to the room, my sunshine just slept off totally and I was just there sitting down on the chair watching Zeeworld.
The doctor came to check me around to 2am said I was 4cm already .He asked me any pain and I still said No. He said before 12noon you should be delivered. I just dey look. The MD later asked the nurse to come and give me an injection around 3am.
My dear BVs, if I had known I was being induced, I for don make scene. Around to 4am, the muscle contractions started in a big way (I refuse to call it pain because it is what you say it is). I will just hold on to the bed cos I have vowed not to shout or cry.
The contractions started coming 7mins apart. Ah, it was out of this world. I did breathing exercise, I held on to the bed, I knelt down, I laid on the bed, held on to the nurses whenever they came to check me, slept on the floor and yet I wasn't just getting a good position. It was my heavy breathing that woke my husband up. And trust my prayerman, he just started praying again and speaking in tongues. At a point I tried holding his leg and the guy thought I wanted to hold his third leg and he shouted "No baby, noooo. I bursted into hot teary laughs.
I said I can't do that cos am not done yet. Am still going to do this again.
Then the doctor can back to check me around 7:30am and he met me on the floor. Na so the guy fa were loyan (he looked for my trouble). He asked me why I was lying on the floor. "Madam what's the meaning of all these, why are you lying on the floor now?
My people na so I spark - "What do you mean, you don't talk to me like that. I can decide to stay anywhere so far am Ok with it. That am in labour doesn't mean am not with my senses.
Na so hubby sef put him own join
Hubby - why are you being rude to the doctor?
Me - what do you mean?
Hubby - apologize to him now pls or I will leave this room.
Me - Run, shebi have been watching you since. I can see you want to leave me to it Abi. Oya run now. Runnnn. I was clapping like a market woman ready for fight.
Doctor - Mr A.. pls don't go out. She's not the one talking.
Me - i'm the one talking o.
Doctor - it's OK madam. Pls lie down let's check you.
The checking part was very painful. He said 8cm dilated and he decided to break my water then as there was progress already.
The nurses asked my hubby to bring in the box so I can sort the delivery things.
7:50am, I felt the urge to poo and I told the nurse, she advised that I should keep doing the breathing exercise and avoid pushing on my own. So she checked me again, lo and behold, my baby's head was already showing. She just shouted don't try to push o, where is your pad. Oya hold your pad and use it to block his head. Sister, are you set, even if you are not it's time o. She took me to the delivery and asked me to remove the robe.
I was obeying all orders, I climbed the bed papapa. When the doc came he said pls put on your robe back. I begged him not to give me tear but he said no cos as a 1st timer he can't take risk. My hubby was busy scabashing all along. I pushed my baby out at exactly 8am after 3 pushes on my brother's birthday.
Then ghenghen, my hubby just started crying...Thank you baby. I just started laughing. Oga so o ti e le. The Episotomy pain me sha but my oyinbo was worth it.
Stellz I no go send you pictures for your eyes only cos I know your eyes for don full due to the plenty you have been seeing alone but I love you scarra....
