Labour Room Drama 275

The Fear..........

Good day Stella. I have been reading the Labour Room Drama series for a while now and I thought of sharing mine. So I got pregnant at 36.I was a little scared because it was my first and at that age,I had already ruled out vaginal delivery. A particular doctor actually told me point blank that having a first pregnancy at that she is risky and that I should pick a date for cs.

Despite all, the pregnancy was a smooth one except the never ending morning sickness I experienced. I had spoken to my antenatal doctor about getting an epidural due to my fear for labour pain.

5 days after my Edd, at 12 am midnight,the contractions started and I was able to get to the hospital early enough for an epidural. I was 4 centimetres dilated but still felt some pain before my epidural was administered. I delivered my beautiful baby girl 13 hours later.

The anaesthesian (hope I am correct) later told me that I had not even reached the active stage of labour where the pain is excruciatingly unbearable .

When I got pregnant with my second baby,I started drumming it into my antenatal doctors that I would want an epidural. 

Anyway fast forward to the delivery day, I started feeling contractions .My husband said we should leave for the hospital but because I thought the contractions were mild ,I told him we should wait till morning .So we left for the hospital around 6 in the morning. 

On getting to the hospital, the contractions were more intense and closer. I thought my waist was about to explode. I was walking down the hospital corridor,lifting up the gown I was wearing because of the pain. Chai I was shouting the whole hospital down. I was shouting that they should give me an epidural and that I have paid for it. 

A nurse wheeled me into the delivery room and I was sweating profusely.At this stage,the pain was unbearable .I still cant describe it but it felt like menstrual pain multiples by 1 billion. I was laid on the delivery bed and I felt like I wanted to poo. Within 10 minutes I pushed so hard It was as if fire was set inside my bumbum. 

It was my vagina tearing or so I was made to understand. I heard my baby boy crying and I felt relieved. The doctor then injected my vagina and stitched me up .Didnt feel the effect of the injection as I felt every stab of his needle and thread.

Mmm. It was as if God wanted me to know what labour pains feels like and allowed me to delay till I reached active stage of labour. I am glad its all over now as I just can't stop staring at my boy. Thankful thankful thankful. I gave birth like the Hebrew women.
