Sunday In House Gists - Pregnancy Complications That Lingered After The Baby...

 Some women experience complications in pregnancies that takes time to go away,months or years after the baby is birthed........



I still have contractions sometimes...doesn't last more than a minute and i can't explain it........No one can!

My stomach never went down after my last CS and i don't think there is any miracle that will make it flat unless i go under the knife to fix.....I wont cos I am too scared to..........(I ain't got flat stomach but I got Jesus)

A friend of mine developed hernia during pregnancy and it has become so bad that she needs surgery to fix it....

A BV developed Vaginismus during pregnancy and their child is a year old and he still cant penetrate.

What about you?Do you still have some of the complications or 'sickness' you had during pregnancy? 

Lets gist!

  1. I met a lady at the clinic recently and she came to run some test. She said she hasn't seen her period since she put to birth 3 years ago. She was really sad and worried and I felt like crying on her behalf

    5. I had my first child via Vagina Delivery almost 4 years ago and I had my second via CS because the baby was not getting enough oxygen and some other complications not up to a month ago and I have still haven't healed completely. It really is affecting my mental health because I wasn't prepared for it. Does anyone else feel this way?

      To all mothers out there , May God Almighty bless us all πŸ™. I have never had issues with childbirth. Nothing changed except for my breast that became bigger and drop from the main point. No headache, no BP, no backache.

      Be patient pls. Follow the doctor's instructions, don't stress yourself. It will take months for you to fully heal and recover. CS is not a child's play.

    9. Preety, I did my CS almost 5 months ago and I'm still recovering. Don't forget CS is major surgery; your intestine was removed after they cut and tear you up to get to the baby.
      Make sure you take your meds and rest very well.
      Stress makes it impossible to heal very fast.
      Love

    10. Preety, I wanted water birth for my first child but I had CS for both. With the first I was crying that I didn't want to die because people in Nigeria where I'm from die after CS πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚, with my second I was ready for CS cos my water broke a day before and 24 hors on baby still wasn't ready to come.
      CS is not an easy thing (Physically or Emotionally) and I don't understand why some people are shy or embarrassed to say they had CS.
      Take your time, relax, eat well and heal properly.
      Enjoy bonding and sleepless nights πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ with baby, they grow really quick.
      Sending you love my dear.

    6. Its your vagina bringing out air, its not real fart. Go and do sitz baths, your bath canal will go back to normal

      Delete
    7. You need to re-do your "siltz bath" dunno if I got the spelling correctly. Or you can get a strong plastic bucket, pour hot water (not over boiled so the vapour doesn't burn you), add enough salt and Dettol. Sit on it with your legs closed and stand up or open your legs to ease the heat if it is too much then close again.

      Do this as often as you can for like 2 weeks, ensure your legs are close...it heals the opening in the vagina.

      I had the loud farting sound after my third child because I felt I was now an expert and didn't take the siltz bath seriously... Mehn when I noticed it continued after almost like 1 month post delivery, I went back to do the correct it and it stopped immediately.

      Sorry for the long epistle and any typos, I no get strength to goan proof read again. I just hope you get the point Sha

    5. During my messed up sleeping pattern I woke my daughter up around 2am,ask her to go and shower and prepare for school.she was already 7 but my son in year 5 always go with our neighbour. When I knocked my neighbours house she was still asleep and scared when she opened the door. She said its just 2am is everything okay. If you see the way I left my son and ran to the street to look for my daughter but luckily her instinct told her something was wrong because she said nobody was outside.. Thank God nobody reported me to social service because their dad said I have mental problem when we separated now we are back together as a family.

    10. Holy molly!!! An 11 pounds baby? Jesus Christ! i would have had an elective CS for that. Nigerian women should be educated there is nothing wrong with opting for a ceasarean section birth. i had a 9 pounds baby, 10months later i'm still reeling from the trauma.Had pubic symphysis separation. Undergoing pelvic floor physical therapy to correct it.

      Delete
    11. Madam!!!! That was a big risk you took. My second baby was 4.3 and I keep saying if I had known (my last scan was at 7months) he was that big would have opted for elective cs. That was too much stress you put your body through. Too much.




      After my 3rd baby I can't view my veejaay anymore (I have Jesus, who needs a flat tummy) used to be a size 40 now I am 42. Can't sit or bend for too long cos of waist pain. My libido has gone downhill.

    8. You need a fertility gynaecologist. I used one in 2019 after a miscarriage in 2018, and I had my baby in 2020.
      I did hormonal profile, but hsg(extremely painful) and vaginal scan.
      They all paid off but you need to see fertility gynae first

      Delete
    9. Please if you get to read my message, I suffered from the same thing. Turns out I had hyperprolactinemia. You can google it. Please let her see a gynae, I was prescribed parlodel, which brought down my prolactin levels, stopped the breast milk, and returned my ovulation, I got pregnant again a month into taking the drug, unfortunately, it ended in a miscarriage again. However, what I'm saying is her case is minor, let her go see a gynae.

I didn't think much of it till I recently had to study for IELTS. Recorded myself speaking I noticed I was stammering a lot and having lots of uncompleted sentences. Pregnancy really affected my memory.

I had the painful wrist after my girls in 2014..it started like 5 months into the pregnancy and stayed about 2-3 months after delivery. sometimes i couldn't even lift a cup or open a can. even a bottle of drink was war. it was just massage and more massage till it disappeared. thank God the only complication I had was an infection after CS that kept me back in hospital 2 weeks after, then my feet that went from size 42 - 43. yes i also had something the doctor called Restless leg Syndrome. you feel like your leg is itchy or something is moving but you cant touch exactly where. i just disappeared on its own.

  36. Though I'm not married yet but my heart bleeds reading all this challenges women pass through while pregnant & at delivery yet some men will deny the women access to their children in the guise that they have the financial capacity & the women are house wives.

    This's really sad.

    To every mother I salute you & I pray that you will eat the fruit of your labor.
