When I was pregnant with my first child, everything was fine with me from the very beginning. I went to receptions to the gynecologist, handed over jars with analyzes and everything that is necessary. The doctor said that all I have is good, only there is a small hypertonus of the uterus and polyhydramnios.
Something worried about the fetus in the stomach
But since the doctor said that there was no reason for concern, I did not bother. I was just surprised that sometimes my child danced in the stomach as if something was bothering him there. Even at night I got up and went for a walk so that he calmed down.
My birth began a week before the deadline. And they were urgent. That is, they brought me here, and in an hour I give birth. Actually, I already moved to the birth chair during the birth process. I barely had time to shave and go, sorry, to the toilet after the enema.
Childbirth was not only urgent, but also very painful. I didn’t understand what was happening, because it was very painful, despite the fact that my arm was all something to prick with painkillers, but it did not help.
I diligently did everything I was told. At least it seemed so to me. I was breathing, I was straining. But at some point I realized that something was wrong.
I do not know how it is now there in our hospital – but when I gave birth, it was not like the American film Ambulance with Clooney. There, an ultrasound unit is connected to the parturient women, and everything can be seen what happens with the baby inside the woman’s belly.
In our case, the condition of the baby was checked as follows: they took the tube, on which, on the one hand, the bell was smaller – it was applied to its ear, and the end, where the bell was larger, to the woman’s belly. And listened: there is a heartbeat or not.
Child barely managed to save
Suddenly the midwife tells me: I can not hear the heartbeat. Second confusion – she quickly cuts my crotch and gets the baby … with entanglement. I barely had time to unwind it. Thank God, he did not have time to suffocate! Everything went well. Thank her so much for this!
And God bless him, that they sewed me up at random then, everything had to be redone later. But the most important thing is not this! And the fact that after delivery (!) I was asked a question: tell me, have you been examined for infections?
There was no limit to my bewilderment: after all, I passed all the tests I was told. Then they explained to me that perhaps I had chlamydia. It is he who causes high water, an excessively long umbilical cord and anxiety of the fetus. Therefore, the entanglement occurred.
Why I did not have these chlamydia revealed for 9 months of pregnancy and where they came from – I do not know. But I was indignant, of course, for a long time. After all, it was possible to at least hint what tests should be taken and what to look for. Moreover, there were all the symptoms: high water and anxiety of the fetus.
Analyzes revealed chlamydia
In general, as soon as I recovered a little after giving birth, I passed all the tests and found chlamydia and ureoplasma. All this had to be treated for a long time both for me and for my husband. But by the time I got ready to get pregnant again, I was completely healthy. And with the second child there were no such problems. Although there were again urgent deliveries, but there was no entanglement.
Check for infections beforehand.
Therefore, I want to ask you, dear future mothers: do not subject yourself and your children to such trials. Examine very carefully before thinking about getting pregnant. Or at least before you are about to give birth.
During pregnancy, drink calcium and iron to keep your teeth, and the baby had strong bones. Iron will save you from anemia.
