Her delivery I wouldn't term a drama, it was actually Bliss..#smiles..but before I go into hers, my first delivery was a mild drama, I exceeded my due date after all the climbing and exercise I did, so was booked for induction a week after my EDD, coincidentally that day was also my ante natal, I went in to see the doctor and he inserted his fingers like they do, what makes his worse is that he is our family doctor that I see like a father to me.
I even see him in church and I and his children are friends, so you can understand it's always awkward when he has to check me, prior to that he had already told me that my "gate" is tight that I will be given an episiotomy, so he wrote that induction should be commenced..lord!
I was so scared being my first and having heard a lot of stories about child delivery..i forgot to mention that on that day the first thing I did was walk down to our church which was a stone throw from our house.when I got there, there was no one in sight,a very big quiet church, I went to the alter, I could not kneel so I just laid down, I felt overwhelmed and could'nt muster out words,I managed to tell God he knows I haven't done this before, and I have heard different kinds of story that i'm relying totally on him,it's between me and him and he has never let me down.
I felt at peace and I went home.i went to the delivery section, I was shaved, and they said the induction tablet will be inserted at 12noon dot, my strong momma, was present gidigba no shaking, while my husband was already shaking like a leaf when nothing has even started, my two younger brothers were around for moral support while my only sister(younger) was rushing back from school to come rub my back.
From that 12 to 4pm nothing happened Haaa! I didn't know what to do to quicken it, the nurses came and checked, my Baby's heart beat and said it was getting faint, the doctor came and said after operating on the woman that I was sharing the same room with, he will commence mine, if nothing changed..my heart sank.they inserted a drip.at 5pm, omg! Menstrual like pain started, my mum said it's labour, I smiled FINALLY.
My squad took turns to rub my back when the pains comes, Momma said I shouldn't shout, I should be open my mouth and breath and call on Jesus..me that refused to remove my gown when I came didn't know when I was on wrapper but I was able to bear the pain like a boss cause it was just like my menstrual pain and I trained myself not to take any pain reliever during my menstrual cycle. Next thing I vomitted, then I let out a yell, the nurses lifted me and placed me gbam! on top of the delivery table..they said that sound I made told them it's time..kpa kpa kpa..spread your legs, I can be so uptight eh when it comes to opening my legs even during sex with my husband.
See the baby's head, then they saw the cord wrong tight my son's neck, the nurse gave me a cut sharply, brought scissors cut the cord and pulled him out,he was unable to cry, they hit him, turned him upside down, injected him..and he let out a wail..i started crying uncontrollably..i didn't know why..i guess tears of joy..
In all his labour lasted for 2 and half hours..had him at 8:20pm..what an epistle..chai! I did'nt intend for it to be long oo..maybe I should leave the second one...Mba ka kotopuzia ya..so my daughter oo Obialunamma..pregnancy was such a bliss..no vomiting, unlike my first, Nada.
I was strong kakaraka.at 8months you can hardly tell i'm pregnant, but the difference is that i'm working presently but when I was pregnant with my first I was unemployed, that's why they say exercise is good for everyone. My due date was 22nd october, my ever able Momma arrived a week before my due date, whenever I come from work, in the evening after I must have rested, she say Oya! Exercise.we'll walk round our vicinity.i didn't want to be induced,I prayed to experience normal labour, the show and everything, cause after the practice I and my younger brothers did for the first one(who will rush for the delivery bag, who will lift me into the car while the other person opens the gate, just like in the movies) we didn't get to carry it out cause I was induced.
You didnt end it but well done.
