Finally! Its what you’ve all been waiting for. My story as to how my labour and delivery went. Altogether I was in labour for 14 hours. The hardest part about My journey was the waiting game.Imagine waiting 9 months and then the day finally arrives and you have to wait even longer till they make their grand entrance. I am thankful that everything went smoothly without any hiccups. If you didn’t know any time your are induced your basically signing up for the possibility of normal vaginal delivery or C-section. That’s right there is a possibility that you could end up going through an emergency C-section. Sometimes complications happen you just got to pray and hope for a smooth delivery. Even though I was scared (freaking out is the best way to describe it) I knew that I needed to stay focus and remain calm. It also helped that i was surrounded by such a wonderful and positive group of nurses. When it came time to push I was physically, emotionally and mentally drained. I really didn’t have it in me to keep pushing ( hey man you too would be exhausted if you were pushing for an hour and a half) . There was a moment in the delivery room where I was just to tired and I couldn’t do it. But the nurses as well as my doctor (oh and my boyfriend) kept encouraging me to keep pushing.EXCELLENT!! staff!!
I have to say the way the media portrays labour and delivery is a little bit of a stretch for one I wasn’t sweating. I think the only thing that is spot on is the pain. Yes, you will be in pain but drugs are your best friends. If the hospital I was at gave other form of pain relief I would have probably choose that over the epidural. My only suggestion for all future mothers is don’t be afraid to take it. This ism’t 1783 where you have to give birth with not one ounce of drug in your system. I mean why go through that pain if your don’t have to?
If your wondering about the hair, yes, she was born with a full head of hair and yes I had really bad heartburn. No her hair did not and has not fallen out.
So is it worth it? Definitely! You go through 9 month of trying to picture what your little one will look like and then a few hours of pain but at the end of it your finally get to meet the love of your life ! And that bundle of joy will forever change the way your look at life.
