Sorry In advance for the long post


Moved over here frm ttc thread early September when bfp was confirmed for the first time in my life to the glory of God. I was working with an obstetrician already so I had hospital care right from day one. MS hit me at about 6 weeks and it lasted till 3rd trimester but thankfully no spitting or heartburn (even though baby came out with a head full of hair). Then late 2nd trimester I went to complain to my doc that I was feeling dizzy and faint, blood test showed I had slight anemia with low blood platelets so I was monitored monthly for that and thankfully my count later increased. I was told if the numbers decreased, there was a bleeding risk so no option of CS or epidural. God just stepped in because as it turned out, I eventually needed both.

So at 39 weeks plus, last Friday, I was ready for birth but no sign. I saw on baby centre where a lady said she crawled and it brought up labour. As funny as it sounds, I decided to go on all fours and crawl around the bed (floor is too hard). Next day, I woke up with contractions. Was mild so I was able to still cook and go about daily activities. Got a bit intense at night but managed to sleep in between them. Sunday morning, went to the hospital and was checked at the labour assessment unit, I was only 2cm, doc did membrane sweep and sent me home to return later. Contractions intensified eventually but I told DH we should wait till after Game of thrones which was to begin at 9pm. I’d been seeing bloody show all day. After the program, got to the hospital and was at 5cm. Got moved to labour and delivery unit and into a room for the rest of the labour. Got plugged to monitors to check baby’s heart rate, my contractions and my bp. A nurse was with me all through. Doc came to check and broke my water only to find baby had pooped already which made her heart rate jump to about 170bpm. They put me on IV to regulate her heart rate. The pain was so much but I was determined not shout to as to save my strength for pushing. Nurse and DH kept giving me ice water and juice. I asked for laughing gas for pain relief, I didn’t find it effective, one strong contraction hit and I flung the thing. At this point, I had labored for about 5-7hrs at the hospital and was still 5cm, no progress. They gave me pitocin and I asked for an epidural even though I had planned for none initially. That thing worked like magic as all the pain disappeared even though I was still contracting badly. I only felt the pressure, no pain. I was able to sleep till about 11am Monday morning thinking I will wake up and be 10cm ready to push.
NO PROGRESS STILL! It was frustrating but at least I wasn’t in pains. Pitocin dosage was increased, still nothing. Doc said if no progress, we’d have to opt for a Csection.
At around 2ish at noon, doc came in and we agreed to the Csection as my pelvic bone wasn’t wide enough for the baby to descend. Got wheeled into the theatre and within 30-40mins, baby was out weighing over 7lbs. I cried as I heard my princess’ voice. She was cleaned and brought to me. DH carried her too and we took pics. Got stitched while she was taken away to check her vitals etc.
Oh did I tell you guys the drama my mother acted in the labour room? When she heard we might do csection, she started crying. Me that was experiencing the labour started laughing at her. The most important thing is mother and baby alive.

Thank God for everything, can’t thank him enough.

All ttc mums, you’re next

I have started feeling baby's movements (flutterings). I'm a STM so I have a pre knowledge of what it feels like though it's not always so for FTMs. Relax as you'll even be saying baby is kicking too much grin.
