Labour Room Drama 265

The Prince has landed...........................







Stella please post my LRD
I'm a first time mom

I was 40 weeks and 5 days and labour was not forth coming so the doctor during my last antenatal visit asked me to come and get induced in a week time if I don't fall into labour before then.

2 days to the date, I took a long walk,danced, and by 2am the next morning, I felt contractions and also, I felt my mucus plug fall out. I called my BIL who is a doctor and he asked me to time the contraction and go to the hospital when it gets closer.

After about 2 hours, I felt the contraction to be 15 mins apart and he adviced I get going. When I got to the hospital, I was immediately admitted to the labour ward and my dilation was checked, my cervix was still closed.
The doctor adviced I shouldn't head back home anymore since I'm already due for inducement the next day, so I got admitted in the pre-natal ward.

That same night, at about 11:30pm, I was induced, and almost immediately the contraction I was feeling became really really strong, I almost couldn't walk back to my ward...I laboured all through the night in severe pains.


The next morning,my water broke and i was transfered to the labour ward, I was checked and was at 4cm.

The doctor said he was going to hasten up the labour and he gave me a drip (oxytocin) and also did a membrane sweep.
That was when the real pains started.
I was having contractions every 5 mins and it felt really painful...

After about 6 hours I was checked and I had dilated to 5cm...the midwife even made a comment that I maybe transfered to the theater for emergency CS if I don't make progress that was when I decided to call on my God.

I was given another oxytocin(drip) and the pain I was feeling tripled and contractions was now coming every 3 mins. With each contractions I was just speaking in different tongues crying and praying that it wouldnt be a CS after passing through all these pains.

About an hour later, the midwife checked me and was glad i had made progress to 7cm.
In about 10 mins I felt an urge to poo and I started shouting that I want to poo-poo.They immediately prepared the labour room, transfered me and asked me to push.


I pushed and pushed and it was so tough but the midwife kept saying I was making progress and that gave me the encouragement to do more...at some point, I was even begging her for a tear lol.

My prince charming came out after about 10 pushes screaming his lungs out and a cord around his neck weighing 3.5kg looking exactly like me.
He gave me massive tears which is still healing.
Immediately I held him in my arms, I forgot all the pains and sufferings.

Its an experience I would never trade for anything thank God for blessing me with this gift.

Please forgive all my gbagauns, I'm still in the hospital since Wednesday my baby is was diagnosed of jaundice.



*Awwww...so sorry to hear your baby has jaundice..I pray he gets well soon.

  4. Congrats Momma!
    I didn't fall labour too when I had my children,I never knew what it means for labour to start and I didn't see any show for me to know it's time.Infact,I exceeded the +- 40wks. I'm always induced and I don't feel that nerve wracking pain that people describe in LRD all thanks to supernatural childbirth by Jackie mize,but I had vaginal laceration.Welcome to the suckaholic and sleepless nights club.

    3. I agree with you @Dainty. This was once a topic of discussion amongst my friends and I made it clear that I would opt for epidural when that time comes... I was referred to as weak,lazy and so on. I wonder why we have to endure labour pains when there is a better option.

    4. it has its side effects, my first was via epidural and I later had back aches at the exact spot I was given epidural. It's better to go the natural way

    5. But epidural is not cheap na. You will be amazed how many people in Nigeria prefer natural birth just because of the cost compared to CS. But they will never admit the cost is the reason. I would never opt for epidural especially in Nigeria and anyone who wishes to can go ahead. Everyone should be left with their choices.

  16. If you had tear, please mind how you sit down so that it can heal right. Try as much as possible to sit with your legs tightly close and try not to stretch d stitches. After about three weeks you might see pieces of the material used for d stitches falling off, it's normal. Welcome to sleepless night and painful nipple, lol. Whenever you fill stressed just take a smell of your babies head, the pleasant baby smell relaxes you.
