So finally here is the lady with the power of writing lengthy posts write down her delivery story or rather a birth story where not one but two souls were born- 1my darlinng batul raniyah and 2-her mother.
🌻It was 4th of June's afternoon 2.30pm i suddenly felt a trickle of leakage down and i suddenly came down from bed and it passed through my legs onto the floor. My ever ready mom immediately got ready to leave with all her stuff and i was going on asking her are you sure this is water and not urine? Lolz.
So i called up husband, he called up in laws, and everybody was all set to leave when i decided "mujhey lunch dedo,maine suna doc labour k pejlekhaane nahi detey" everybody still laugh about it. Husband was back from the office in a jiffy and here i was taking all the time and finally after calls to the doc we left at 4pm and around 6pm the doc induced labour. Pain started around 11.30pm and by 1 am it was gone again and i was roaming around in the hospital corridor until almost 2am and then the nurse said "madam I have to put another syringe, please go back to your roam" and then she induced me again and all herll broke loose from 2.30 onwards and by 3.30am i was dying in pain. RMO came checked and said 3cms then i called her up again within few minutes, i said my pain is too much i might have dilated more,she checked again and then it was still 3cms.
I was begging to get operated.(thanks to @Priti singh's post) I had instructed my husband on reading her post that "i will tell many times for c section but you keep me going" and that worked. He kept reassuring me and my mil and sister kept massaging my hand, stomach, and blowing prayers on me while I kept shouting "why almight is making it difficult for me, logon ka 1-2 hrs mey delivery hojaata he mujhey itna kyun?". "Ya allah dard mat dijiye, dilation dijiye". These two lines were tied to my tongue throughout the night and then RMo checked again around 4.30am it was 5 cms and i said "i want c-section" and the RMO gently said "nilofer, aap bohot bardasht kar rahe ho, aapko natural labour chaiye na, toh thodi derr aur!" Her gentle hand on my head and calm tone calmed me for a while until i again began to yell. And then came the doc at around 5.45am, she asked me to move and i shouted "doc please do it here, i can't move" and the doc soothed me saying "its ok beta, relax, you are doing well" and then while she was checking my dilation i felt the urge to push and all of a sudden i pushed(naturally) and around 6.15am i was moved immediately to the labour room. For the first time in the past 12hrs i felt good. And then in the labour room i saw the doc and ithers do all the hustle around. I signed on a paper(no idea what and i didn't want to know either). And then i was yelling and i pushed, doc soothed me by storking my hair and then why i suddenly pushed with force and i felt a slight cut running down there and in the third push at 6.48 am my baby popped out and i just lay down there relieved and relaxed. I was so much in pain and stress that i missed the most loving moment of keeping my baby on my chest and neither did i move or felt anything. After the stitching and all the detailed work i was then taken on the stroller back for a change and then moved up. I didn't know where my baby was and i was completely in sleep- subconsciously awake. After coming back to the room , another pain had overtsken my joy. ie: the pain of the stiches- unable to move, talk, smile or even ask for my baby.(i regret it still).
🌼i immensely am thankful to my almighty for giving me the privilege of becoming a mother of a sound and healthy baby.
🌼thank my husband and family to stand rocksolid by me through out the night and the journey and until today too.
🌼i immensely am grateful to dr jagruti sawant at criticare hospital(juhu) for being such a big insisting, patient and selfless human. ( believe me when she said congrats its a baby girl, it immediately rang in my mind that my lo will one day be a human and a dr like her. Fingers crossed(not burdening her with my ambition,she can choose hers).)
🌼i also thank #babychakra and #mydeliverystories of @Priti Singh Amruta Naik and Mrs Chhoker . Believe me ladies i have been remembering you through out my labour process. Priti's motivation to keep husband well informed, amruta's struggle of the entire day and chokker's lines where she mentions about stopping the struggle and joking about not being a phd in pushing (hahahah). So all in all ladies do keep on writing your stories, you never know who you are motivating.
🌼i also thank Shiny Vincent for she had answered me saying to use a pad while leaving for yhr hospital to avoid water leakage on the way.(might sound totally absurd but i always wondered what will i use for hiding the leakage- towel,cloth bla bla...)
🌼lastly thanks everyone for being such a great community and a helping hand.
PS: apologies for the longest post. And hope this helps motivate another mom-to-be just like i was motivated once.(especially to not give up on having vaginal delivery)
