Labour Room Drama 286

Pre-eclampsia in pregnancy is not  a Joke!!!









Hi Stella


I have been an ardent follower of your blog since 2015 and this is my LRD.

My pregnancy was a smooth one from the first day until the 35th week when I was told at the hospital that I had preeclampsia.(high blood pressure and protein in urine). Immediately I was put in an ambulance to be transferred to a bigger hospital.


I was already crying,I was scared of losing the child as I already had a miscarriage in 2018.When i got to the bigger hospital,they took me to high risk ward with like 5 machines all around my body bleeping exactly like the one I used to see in movies,eru ba mi.I was thinking in my heart shey na like this I go die? .They said they will have to monitor me for the next 24 hours.


Thankfully,there was nothing so they took me to another ward to start induction.The first 3 days were hectic cos my BP refused to go down (we were going through financial problem)until the 4th day when I met a Nigerian doctor,her words were soothing so I left all to God.

BP was normal but as at that time I was told I couldn't go home cos I will have to be induced.So the induction process begins, injection,pills,drips.I wasn't feeling anything.I stayed at the hospital for 2 weeks(Thank God health care is free)at exactly 2nd week.


A doc came and said he was going to recommend CS, sincerely I don't even mind cos I was already tired by then.As he went out to bring the consent letter, another of his colleague walked up to me and asked if my water has been broken,I said no.Then she asked me to lie down.MHEN!!!

It was so painful.I just felt something warm gushing down my Vjay.and she told me to expect labour in the next 15-20 mins.Lo and behold,after some mins I begin to feel pain like menstrual cramps, from menstrual cramps to something intense.Women who shout during labour are strong,I can't even utter a word.I was just shaking my head and crying.It was as if I was in trance.


The pain keeps coming and going until I was 5cm dilated.They took me to the labour room.I saw another woman there who was shouting and jumping.That woman was my entertainer.Lol.When I'm relieved I laugh,but immediately the pain comes I'm back to trance.After some times I was 7cm dilated so I was asked to lie down and not push until I was told to do so.People of God,that to me was the hardest part.Cos you will feel like pushing hard but then you have to adhere to instructions.


When I was 10cm dilated that is when the nurses told me to push.At the 3rd push I felt something slipped out of me and heard a cry.It was an emotional time for me.The nurses who were stitching me(I had episiotomy) didn't understand why I was crying.He was the most beautiful boy ever.

This boy came in the same month I lost a pregnancy.


He came when we were financially down.I saw him as the one that God has sent to bring us sunshine after the rain. He completed my family and I am grateful for him.He motivates me to keep pushing I'm grateful for him.He will be one on Friday and Stella,I am sending his picture for your eyes only.

Thanks for this platform, I celebrate you always.
B.V Lizzy



Congrats,your son is tooooooo cute!!!!

    1. Congratulations dear, may God be with you and your baby.

      I never had pre eclampsia but the hospital I used was worst. I was left in the ward all alone because I wasn't shouting or displaying, immediately the nurse told me to follow her to labor room, as I laid down like this ,the baby's head was showing already and it's only one nurse that delivered me, cleaned the baby and stitched me because others came

  15. Oh dear, I just had to make time to drop this comment. Pre clampsia is no joke. I had my first at 28 weeks and she weighed just 1.45kg, she would later drop to 900g. I don't want to go into details because I'm not really good at telling my stories especially the ones that gets me emotional. My baby girl had all the complications a preterm would have. And at a point the doctors told us to have faith in God. Many moms at the neonatal ward would always applaud my baby in the incubator; they said she is a fighter, one who wanted to fight for her place on this Earth.

    The doctors were not only trying to save my baby, I was on the watchlist too. Magsulf was always near me to help combat any possible seizures. Then when I felt I was on a journey to recovery, I received the bad news that my kidneys were most likely affected. I wanted to die, the doctors were trying to console me that they would take me back to the theater. But you see this God he had better plans, during the routine scan for the preparation for the 2nd surgery, it was discovered I was healed. Blood pressure too has crashed patapata

    Then I dared to have the 2nd, this time around i didn't even know I was pregnant till I was almost 8 weeks gone and would always join the TTC post with faith. And when my miracle baby was conceived. I was overjoyed but also scared. This time around I thought I was well prepared. Started taking my BP drugs and aspirin religiously but then the devil raised his ugly head when I was 36weeks, but thank God for Jesus. He took over my case and shamed the devil. I took more mag sulf than my first, the doctors were afraid BP was shooting up to almost 200/140. And even while on the operating table. It kept spiking.

    You see ehn my entire life is a testimony. I cant leave this God alone. I'm the one who returned to say thank you.

    I saw women who convulsed and died, some lost their babies, a vast majority had organ damage that's after losing their babies o, but I came out unscathed not once but twice.

    God is great!!!

    3. @osnac I can only imagine the trauma. Both psychologically and emotionally. Thankfully I never had full blown eclampsia. The doctors were always at the nick of time to administer magsulf.

      My dear, you ve lived to tell your story and your healing shall be perfect and complete IJN.

      You're a testimony and a survivor, don't believe anything less

  18. Thank God for you, it reminded me of my first baby and I had preeclampsia and was admitted,was induced and nothing,by the end of that they decided that am going to the theater the next day and wrote in my file,that the induction failed ,I was so angry but while in the theater,the doctors were gisting and I heard them say she's in losing blood hurry up and then my son came out and one of the doctors held him up to me and said baby what?and I answered,baby boy,and I was stitched up and then moved to my room,then came pain cos the painkiller wasn't working,mind you,I don't drink nor smoke.The doctor just said my blood was too strong and stayed for 4days before I was discharged,but thank God for the nurses,they were so nice, compared to the other nursed in the other hospital that I had my 2nd and 3rd babies,shout out to the nurses at ECWA HOSPITAL JOS,NOV18 2006 was a testimony and I will forever praise you Lord,heard the hospital has changed now,am no longer in Jos sha

    9. O! My! I really dont have words to say cos I understand what you went through. I dont know how I would have survive if my son didn't make it and here with me after all I went through.

      I dilated up to 8cm at 36wks but my cervix closed back again. I couldn't risk it. May God give you another baby that will help change your life.

      Someone said I should stop breastfeeding to help my bp return to normal. I just can't take not breastfeeding my son at least the first 6months. I know is risky but God has brought us to 5months today and he is doing very well.

  28. This pre-clampsia happened to me too,but God was too faithful to fail. In my own case my doctor gave me drugs to control and bring down my BP,he wanted me to get to 38weeks so he could induce me,on getting to 38weeks,my BP was normal but I still had protein in my urine,he said,I would fall into labour normally,that he wouldn't induce me again,God was already coming through for me. I got to 40weeks and miraculously,the protein in my urine disappeared, it was just a trace. My doctor was dumb founded, he said I serve a living God.People of God that was how I fell into labour 2days labour,but it was a slow labour,so he induced me a little and after about 8hours of labour my beautiful princess arrived,no tear. My sweet mother Mary came through for me as well. Shed 1year and 5months now. God be praised.

  35. Judging by all the comments here, I wish more people are more enlightened about this disease. It is one of the most deadliest silent killer of pregnant women.

    1. And most Nigerian docs know nothing about it. I believe if I was given magnesium sulfate the night I ran to the hospital with a bp of 270/140, 6 days after given birth all swollen I wouldn't have had the seizure. Even after I complained of having a pounding headache and not seeing anymore. Instead I was given tramadol and sleeping tap and that was all I remembered last.
      Maybe cos they were junior docs that night. Cos my mother-in-law told me they had to call the senior docs when I started having anxiety disorder fighting and screaming and later started having seizure. My wrist was dislocated in the process I never felt it till 3weeks after.
