Labour Room Drama -98

LOL




Hello Stella, thumbs up for the magnificent work you're doing on SDB. You're a great inspiration and support for many women out there. God bless you ma.

So here's my birthing story. Sorry it’s a bit long

I got married in 2014. I suppose I got pregnant on our wedding night cos my EDD was exactly 9 months after the date of my wedding.

The first trimester was terrible. I was always sick, hubby was always irritated with me and I was lagging behind at work. Anyways, 2nd trimester came and I suddenly had unimaginable strength. I could clean the house 3 times a day, shop for groceries, walk long distances...in short I was top top.


The night before my EDD, i started feeling painless contractions which I chucked up to braxton hicks cos I didn't really think I'll give birth on the EDD. It continued to the next day so I woke up early, cleaned the house, checked my hospital bag contents to be sure I had everything, then started picking beans cos I'd wanted to eat adalu (beans and corn) that morning. It was also my antenatal day so I got ready to go to the hospital. The contractions continued so I woke hubby up around 8:30 to get ready since we go for antenatal together. I told him about the contractions but he too just shrugged it off. Plan was to go for the antenatal and come back to cook and enjoy the adalu.



We got to the hospital at 9am thereabout and the doctor checked me and said I was about 2cm gone and they'll check again in another 4 hours. I was given a room and hubby went home to cook the adalu, eat and come back with the hospital bag. I was told I couldn't eat in case I'll have to do CS. At 1pm I was checked again and was 3cm. since the contractions were still not very painful, I started feeling like van damme, telling hubby and the nurses that giving birth is a piece of cake!! 

was even watching a Barcelona match with hubby in the room. So the doctor came to check by 5pm and as soon as he withdrew his hand, the contraction pain came 1000 time stronger. I had to ask him if he put something inside of me and he said no. I was then moved to the labour room. That's how a fully clothed, very composed van damme began striping, one clothing item per contraction. I was in excruciating pain as my contractions came every 10, 7, 5 and then 2 minutes till it was 8 pm. I was checked again and they said I was 8cm gone. Checked at 9:30 and I was still 8cm gone then they set up the drip of life. Chai! 

I'd seemingly lose consciousness sometimes when the contractions came after the drip. At 11pm I was 9 cm gone and the doctor thought we should start the birthing. in a couple of minutes, doctor said I was 10cm and we can start to push. Need I say, hubby had run away sha, so I started to push, all the while mumbling prayers incoherently, scratching the nurses, pulling the drip stand, reaching out for anything my hands could grab.

By 11:35pm on my EDD, I gave birth to the most adorable and charming baby boy weighing 3.46kg. Minutes later the placenta was delivered and my tears were stitched. I said my thanksgiving prayers to God for a smooth and uncomplicated delivery, got cleaned up, refused the wheel chair and walked down the long hallway to my recovery room (van damme is back!) and had a quick hot bath and slept. Cos I had an extra bed in my room, hubby stayed back with me making the calls and sending the text messages till about 1am, then he slept too.

My baby is 17 months now, and I’ll try for a baby brother next year. I just love boys!

Know someone whose first baby weight 4.6kg,no tear. Second pregnancy was twins, still no tear. Her Secret, she said, is to start applying olive oil down there few months before, heard it makes it elastic.

My husband does as well. It's a private hospital and most wives come with their husbands.

It was our first pregnancy and we were both excited. Plus it's not the clap and dance kinda antenatal cos what we did then was just have check up wi the doctor for scans and tests and stuffs like that.
