Imagine a labour room story without drama at all...Na wah!
I would like to narrate my labour room drama-long overdue anyway. My EDD was on the 26th December, 2015. Unlike most pregnant women, I wasn't tired of being pretty, I prayed to have my baby on the 25th.
On Sunday, 20th December, I went to church with hubby. Halfway through the mass,I started feeling pains and I just held my stomach and was enduring it. Unconsciously I started tearing up! Hubby decided we leave church but immediately I stepped out,the pains subsided,I told him let's continue with the service.
When we got home, he started laughing at me and we joked about it (I never knew it was contraction) .I prepared lunch and we ate and slept afterwards. Later that night,at about 11pm, hubby was sleeping but I was so uncomfortable.
I kept turning and enduring pains,peeing in between.I endured this till 4am by then it was unbearable. I woke hubby up and he said we should go to the hospital,I didn't want to go cos I felt it was so early.
I went to have my bath,dressed up and asked him to pray,told him to clean my nail polish off(all na delay tactics o). We finally left the house at 6am and we were gisting in the car as he drove. In 15 minutes we got there and I felt another contraction but I stayed in the car cos I didn't want people to know I was in labour(lol).
We finally got in and I was checked and the nurse said I was 4cm,immediately my water broke(6:30am).I was so scared. Hubby came in the labour room and assured me that I will give birth before 12 noon. Around 8am, I was checked and I was 7cm.I was calm all through (I've high threshold for pain tho).
By 9am,I was 8cm. By 10am,I was 10cm. By then the pain was mad but I was only clenching my fist,the matron said its time to push and after 4 pushes ,my pretty babe was born at exactly 10:45am,21st December ,weighing 4kg and crazy tear(lol).
I was stitched for 30 mins and that was the most painful experience, was discharged the next day. Two weeks later,my punani healed. I still pray for such labour in my next pregnancy (without tear). Baby is 13 months old now.
*wow no drama whatsoever.your ponyon healed in two weeks?Babe na pomo you get oooh,no be punani.
