Hi my kingdom,
In this post im going to write about my baby birth and delivery story and how I felt about it.
As per the doctor, my due date start from 13/2 to 20/2/2017. But I past them all and my baby didn’t come out. So the doctor set me appointment on 26/2/2017 to induce the baby. I did everything at home to induce labor but nothing worked. BTW im staying in mom house due its my first baby and i wanted my mom support if i went to labor.
On 25/2/2017 around 5:30 AM: As usual Pregnancy issue is going to toilet every 2 hour; i saw A brownish tinged mucus discharge, I told my mom about it around 8:40 AM. She told me it’s early sign of labor. I became happy that i can hold my son any time soon, but I didn’t had any pain until 11 PM when i went to bad, I felt sudden pain in my stomach. I called my mom and i told her that i have wired pain and i want to go the toilet to pee.
I want to bathroom, brownish and yellow think came out from me. I freaked out and i called my mom and showed her. She told me “we have to go to hospital because its my first time seeing something like that”
My mom called my husband and he came to pick us up. At that time labor pain started.
In the hospital: baby heart beats device was attached to my stomach.
Baby heart beat drops whenever im having contraction. The nurse called my doctor. The doctor requested for snap of heart beat rate to be sent to her mobile. Somehow she reached so fast. She instructed the nurses to prepare me for c-section. The nurses jumped on me and start preparing me for the surgery. I was like “what is going on?! What happening?! ”
Doctor asked my mom to call my husband (who is waiting outside the delivery room) and asked for his signature on the papers. The way doctor reacted made me scared and confused. I was telling my self that everything going to be alright.
On 26/2 at 1 AM I was entered to surgery room, I remember i was looking at lights then everything went black.
At 1:30 AM I became mom to little boy.
As per my mom, my baby went out from surgery room around 1:40 AM and no one was allowed to hold him.
The doctor inform my mom and husband that if i was little late my baby could if die. During the c-section when they open my womb, they saw the umbilical cord was around the baby due that he opened mouth and drink the womb water. They give him 4 hours that he may not survive. ( i have no idea about it until the evening of the that day, my mom and husband wanted to kept secret but I found out about it )
I remember i woke up and i saw mom next to me and she kissed me then i want to sleep.
I woke up with no voice and asking for the baby and water. Then again i went to sleep.
It was morning no idea about time, I woke up again and asked for the baby and water but the nurses refused to give water and the baby. Then I asked her to give me my phone and when i opened my phone, my husband sent me pic of the baby and wrote “Congratulations for becoming a mom, I love you”. (When i saw the pic of baby, deep down i was crying because I should hold and kiss him when he came out to the world!!.)
This time I stayed awake, then i saw nurse (A family friend who worked there in hospital) came to me and asked “how I’m doing? And if i saw my son or not ?!”… I told her “I want my son!!” She went there and spoke to nurses and i saw her holding my baby and he was wearing white with blue stars full suit. She give it to me. I hold him for first time, i was like “oh he is so tiny”. I had mix feelings; happiness, scared and worried. I started crying and kissing him, the nurse was like ” its fine, no need to cry. He is in your arm” . Then she took it from me and told me that we have to returned to nursery room and keep him worm which is good for his health. At same time, my husband came to check on me and he saw the baby and he hold him for first time. To tell you the truth, i was so happy that i was the first one to hold and kissed my son because i was so sad that i saw my son on pic and i was not there for him to hold him when he went out to the world and cried for first time.
The first night, the give me medicine to sleep. Other than that, every night in hospital i cried silently of what happened but on morning time, i was quite and smiled like what happened is nothing. On 5th day the doctor discharged me around 7 AM but i have to go out at 6PM, I cried in front my husband like baby that i want to go out. I had enough. He spoke to nurses and asked for help us to go out around 12 PM, they spoke to doctor and agreed. I was so happy. And went out immediately.
I wrote this post to release my thoughts because I felt so depressed at my first week after delivering the baby.
Just to let you know that February 26 is my husband birthday too 🙃
