So after my 39th week visit to the midwife, she asked about baby movement and I said it was not as active so she referred me to the hospital.. Long story short. I opted for induction on the 10th of January.. So was admitted to the antenatal ward. After 30 hrs of induction ( with pessary inserted) - I was still fine with codeine and paracetamol for pain management. The doctor came to check and said I was not dilated enough to get my water broken.. She performed a sweep which was extremely painful.
On Thursday /Friday midnight, my water broke itself.. And I called the attention of the midwives. Was in pain till morning.. I still was not dilated enough to go into the labour room.. At this point I asked for a shot of diamorphine which didn't seem to manage the pain.. My husband kept calling the midwife... The pain was almost unbearable.. But little did I know that the pain was little compared to what I was to experience.. After a while.. They said I was just a few cm dilated but I was taken to the labour room. This was on Saturday.. I was taken to the labour room at 1pm.
Was put on oxytocin drop to intensify contractions.. I experienced unexplainable pain.. The second dose of diamorphine was not even evident ( prior to this, I had already decided I was not going to get an epidural and my mum convinced me not to aswell.. Talking about side effects.. After 3 hrs of intense pain.. I demanded for epidural.. My mum and husband said I should not take it. At this point, I felt like kicking both of them out of the room.
The anaesthetists had to wait for minutes to have me comport myself to be still for the epidural.. After 8 hrs.. I still was not dilated beyond the point I was at the antenatal ward.. 3 doctors then came to me, I was infected and may have to do emergency Cs.. Did the Cs, I did not hear my baby cry, I was already panicking, asked my husband what was happening.. He tried to calm me down. They carried baby away immediately she was removed and started stitching or gumming me.. Hubby just sat there confused.. Later on, he went to where they took her.. After 10 mins, heard my baby cry.. Was overjoyed.. Baby and I were on antibiotics for 7 days.. Baby had to be taken to nicu at some point.. But we're finally discharged a day to the naming day.
We bless the name of God.

|Education / Re: Lady Who Left Nigeria Due To ASUU Strike Graduates From UK With 5.0gp by Tinkybabe(f): 7:59am On Sep 12, 2017|
The United kingdom does not use a cumulative grade point as a grading system. It's in percentage not gp or cgpa.
So getting a 360 credit points simply means she passed all her modules which you should do to graduate anyway.
Being the best graduating student shows that she's smart but does not equal a 5.0 cgpa. She probably just finished with a first class.

It is well my sister, sometimes we get so swamped in our worries and problems that we do not appreciate the joy of pregnancy.
I was also not ready, I had planned it for much later. I had some plans on ground, my husband not being in the country and me just planning to start a new job further compounded things.These thoughts overwhelmed me when I first found out I was pregnant and this made me unhappy but I couldn't wish for anything more now . I love this bundle of joy more than anything in the world.
We have everything to be thankful for. How are you and the growing little one?
|Health / Re: Pregnancy Are You Pregnant Or Going Through A High Risk Pregnancy,,lets Talk by Tinkybabe(f): 6:00pm On Sep 02, 2017|
I'm glad to be here. I'm also an expectant mum. Had my second scan last week but gender could not be revealed because baby was not in a good position.
Hubby was depressed o. Lol.. We've been able to book a private scan. Was told gender scan is not a routine scan in the NHS.
I'm hoping that baby would have changed position by then o so that we can see his / her something . Lol
Till then, fingers crossed ( secretly hoping it's a girl)
EDD is January.

|Investment / Getting A Mortgage With Little Or Something. by Tinkybabe(f): 5:58am On Jun 08, 2017|
I did not know exactly where to post this article but decided to post here after much deliberation.
Now, this is targeted mostly at people in diaspora, the United Kingdom to be precise as that is where my research is limited to.
Have you ever dreamed of owning a home but the mortgage is so ridiculous that there's hardly any
chance of getting on that property ladder? Well, good news! You don't have to worry too much as you might just be able to afford that dream house.
Gone are the days we have to wait till 40 to own a property. My philosophy is " start early and watch it grow". So for the youths and even the older ones , this is the time to seize this opportunity.
I understand that this information is not privy as it is readily accessible but you'll be surprised at how little people know.
Ok! Enough of the pep talk, let's get right into this.
If you're a first time home buyer, you could actually get a 20% loan from the UK government in a plan known as shared equity mortgage. which reduces your deposit to 5% and mortgage to 75%. The more interesting aspect is that the loan is payable at no interest if it is cleared within 5 years of receipt.
So for example, if the property of interest is valued at £200000. As long as you meet the eligibility criteria, you will be able to get a loan of £40000 from the government, your down-payment in this case would be £10000. This leaves you with a mortgage of £150000 to get from the bank /building society. If you are able to repay the government loan within 5 years, you only have to pay the exact amount that was loaned to you which is £40,000 at 0% interest.
That in my opinion is a fantastic deal.
In addition to this, you can have a help to buy ISA which is savings account that allows you to save towards your first home and you get a 25% bonus on top of your savings at maturity. So for example. If you've been able to save £6000, the government will add 25% to this amount which is £1500. Therefore you end up with £7500 which can go towards your deposit.
Although, you can only get a bonus on a maximum of £12000 savings and can save a maximum of £200 in any given month except the first month when you can save up to £1200.
So there you have it guys.
Note, The Shared Equity Scheme has been on since 2013 and ends in 2021.
On a side note, Make your vote count today, go out and vote!

|Crime / Re: Nigerian Couple In UK Arrested For Slapping Babysitter Over Salary Increment by Tinkybabe(f): 7:43pm On May 09, 2017|
Thanks for the lecture! I live in the UK so I'm privy to the laws of the land.
A child minder is different from a maid. It's child minders that charge 10 pounds and higher not maids and with child minding, you take your kids to them not the other way round.
The reason is that much is because of the certifications and risks that come with childminding.
So I say again, quit the gross exaggeration.
|Crime / Re: Nigerian Couple In UK Arrested For Slapping Babysitter Over Salary Increment by Tinkybabe(f): 7:06pm On May 09, 2017|
Really? Yet everyone is not working as a maid?
Mr man, get your facts right before making this sort of gross exaggeration.
Inasmuch as I understand the point you're making, you don't have to exaggerate to that extent.

Calm yourself down! I'm talking about your advertisement and not grammar.
Someone on a low budget wouldn't spend 100k on Aso Oke.
Your target audience should differ from what you have in your advert.
|Crime / Re: 22-year-old Man Gang-rape Girlfriend With Others In Lagos by Tinkybabe(f): 1:22am On Apr 28, 2017|
I think another opening line far from the bolded would do.
Such a useless boy @ topic.
