I imagined my birth as follows: I am going from home to the maternity hospital, with an interval between contractions of 10 minutes. There the doctor will meet me and tell me what to do next. Have to give birth at night. It will be painful, but I will bear it all.
And now about how it really was.
I never thought that before the birth I put in the hospital. For some reason, she was always afraid of that. The result – laid. I didn’t want to give up and set myself up on the fact that they would hold me a little and let me out, but the neighbors in the ward firmly insisted that going out into the wild was now only with a child. And we were only 38 weeks old and I had heard that the boys are very lazy and sit in mom to the last.
Then I said: Son, as soon as you are ready, I am glad to meet you, but just please do not linger. Up to 42 weeks, I’m definitely not going to be here !. Almost resigned to the fact that I will not be released, I still decided to take time off from my doctor home for the weekend. I gave birth to a contract. She agreed.
Friday. Evening. Neighbors with undisguised envy look like I’m going home. The car drove up, taking off through the back door. Husband is happy I miss you. Home greeted me with joy, the whole evening made plans for the weekend. After resting, they sat down to watch a movie. But we only dreamed of calm.
At 11.15 pm the waters broke. That’s the news. No fights, no traffic jams. Immediately water. Transparent, which means that for fees I have about 1.5 hours plus 30 minutes on the road. I call the doctor, and she is at home. So, in the hospital, no one will meet. Husband will take me, and then go after her. But where is the fight? Maybe I was wrong?
The doctor examined me, confirmed that I was giving birth. Then I calmed down. The main thing is that I was not mistaken and knowingly lifted everyone in the middle of the night. Give birth, so give birth. And only after two nights I began to appear something like a fight. Just after I breathed a sigh of relief, which was not all in vain.
It turned out that this is a difficult test. During fights, I wanted to walk, stand on all fours, or swing on a fit-ball, but were only allowed to lie down. No options. Yes, and the sensors needed to be held, because the son’s pulse was poorly bugged. I had to press on the stomach, which made the fight even more painful.
I suddenly wanted to go to the toilet. For all, it still remains a mystery. For me already – no. I wanted to spend a good half of the birth in the shower. Water is very soothing, relieves stress, distracts. But to get into the shower – you need to try hard. No doctor would like to watch in the middle of the night while you are splashing. My midwife had to. After the toilet – a shower, but how else?
One posture, the other, talking with her husband, control of breathing … So it took another 3-4 hours. I didn’t even notice them. But suddenly it became unbearably painful and contractions almost constantly, that there is no time for rest. Leaning on the bed, I slid to the floor. Husband went for a doctor.
At first the midwife came and shamed me that so little time had passed, and I, you see, began to moan. Then the doctor came, began to check me, but it turned out that I was already giving birth.
Cook generic table, fast! We give birth! What are you worth? Quickly! – I will never forget the surprised eyes of my doctor and the confusion of the rest of the medical staff. They thought I was drawing in front of my husband. Specially Noah and complain. I don’t understand how you can play performances at the same time during such pain ?!
It always seemed to me that as soon as they allowed to push, it would be much easier, the pain would pass. Nothing like this. The pain as was, and remained. It was not less. But it was necessary to collect the last strength and overcome the attempts. And they did not work for me. The son was born only in 5 attempts, not without the help of doctors.
My baby laid out on his stomach, he slightly tilted his head and looked into my eyes. Without blinking. These few seconds seemed to me an eternity. This is the moment that will be with me all my life. However, I was not able to say a word. And there were no need for words.
From the moment of the first fight until the birth of the baby, only 4 hours passed. The card wrote that I gave birth to 5.5. The doctor said that if they write less, they will torture us with checks. It is believed that my birth is fast, but nevertheless they were soft thanks to the knowledge gained in the courses. Sonny was born without injury.
My husband and I wanted our son to laugh after birth. Well, we did not know that they learn this only after the fourth month of life. Nevertheless, he didn’t scream much. Everything looked at us as if trying to remember.
1. Always set yourself up for good. Childbirth is such a fairy tale. As you compose, so be it! Life, of course, will make its own adjustments, but the basis will be as you want.
2. Do not be afraid of anything. Fear only distracts from the correct work in childbirth.
3. Love your baby. He feels and understands everything, really.
4. Turn off the head with all the problems in it. You just do not need them.
