Embarked on all sort of exercises to induce labour naturally all to no avail. Come wednesday, i was booked into the hospital. Then the induction procedure began.
The obgyn first dilated me to 4cm using a balloon catheter and by 4am the next morning I was 4cm dilated. Afterward the obgyn came in at 7:30am to break my water with his hands.
The oxytocin drip was applied to completely dilate me to 10cm. At 6cm dilation, the contraction became so so strong and the epideural was applied.
At 6cm dilation, the nurse came in 2 hours later and said baby was unhappy. Shocked and curious at whatever that means. A scan was conducted only to observe that the baby's umbilical cords were tied around the baby's neck and an urgent c-section needed to be conducted.
Immediately I was wheeled to the OR and 25mins after my baby boy was taken out and an hour later I was wheeled out to the recovery room.
Seeing my little boy brought me to emotional state. I have never felt such kind of emotions before. It was love at first sight.
The devil raised its ugly head when baby was taken to ICU 20hours after delivery because his rpm (respiratory) was fluctuating > 60. It was as high as 120. Due to some infections. But as long as God is on the throne, we shall celebrate.
Please who has experienced this before after delivery and what was the treatment as baby is currently being given antibiotics and glucose.
*May God see your baby through...
