hello my beauties
So its been a while since I written my last blog. some of you might know that i was pregnant & i had just given birth on the 7th march 2017. My due date was meant to be on the 21st march, but baby decided it was time at 38 weeks of pregnancy.
This is my second baby, however the first baby was like a dream he came very early at 32 weeks and she was soooo tiny omg! she was in ICU for a month. She did really well my little fighter. Now sees 2 & half years old and naughty ! & ill leave her incredible story for the next vlog.
As for this baby i was lucky to make it 38weeks! i did my best for baby to stay inside as long as she could. When it was time my water broke while i was sleeping at 7am & if you had kids before you can agree that at first you would think you weed yourself =D then contractions started to kick. At first it started as soft slow ones, so i took that opportunity to shower, eat breakfast and put some makeup on ! My moms was like you crazy you’re contracting and putting on makeup. So i wanted to be ready and look good for baby, it may sound crazy and funny but it would make me feel good.
By the time I got to the hospital at 9am I had no idea what was coming ahead for me. Because it’s my first time that I was contracting & feeling the pain ! My honest intention is that I wanted the epidural I had it for my first born and I didn’t feel a thing. Okay some might say no its bad because of the side effects & if anything goes wrong during the needle, yes ! but i was scared and I’ve always had a fear of labour.
So heres where it gets interesting and crazy. My contractions started to get really bad and strong, the midwife was telling me I was far from dilating & she never check me. She said to me that she might evens send me back home =O. So they put me on a monitor, while the nurse was placing the monitor on for me I was asking for epidural she said that I’m not ready yet for it i would have to be close to labour & left the room. “close to labour”? i had no idea what she was on about i was contracting so bad i was screaming so loud! and i felt myself dilating. I was not able to sit still i was having contractions every 4 mins. then she decided to check me & realised that i was 6cm dilated & she said to me that she could no give me the epidural anymore ! I started to CRY =C I was sooo scared!
The contractions got worse the midwife or nurses did not come back in to check on me. The honestly i started to feel my body pushing, i started to feel the head pushing her way through, i could feel the burn and her head in the birth canal. My best friend and sister was with me the whole time, suddenly i felt my body start to push harder and constant I screamed because i felt more tearing and i felt the head wanting to pop out, my best friend looked under the cover only to find the head ready to come out. She ran to call the midwife and she came in so SLOW omg! She hasn’t even prepared anything she was preparing while I’m pushing. The pain & feeling of delivery is something someone just cant explain, i didn’t want to take the gas for me screaming was much better relief than the gas. It’s a journey that makes me proud to be a women that we are able to create life in our whom and deliver it to the world. Finally baby was started to come out and the relief you get after that final hard push makes you think thank you god for everything.
Holding baby in my arms was the greatest feeling the feeling that helps you forget what you just went through like the pain wasn’t even there. I had second degree of tearing they stitched me up while I was breast feeding. As if right now I’m thinking maybe ill do this again, yes it was really hard but so WORTH IT !
I hope you guys enjoyed reading me journey through this delivery. if you like to read more vlogs Please leave a comment below =)
