All nine months of my pregnancy, my girlfriends and dear relatives asserted that it was painful to give birth, for a long time and in general there was little of something pleasant. Stories about difficult labor, stimulation, breaks and rudeness of doctors convinced me even more that they were right.
I waited with a shudder for the start of labor. And now the 38th week of my pregnancy was coming to an end, and there were no signs of childbirth. I, as before, felt perfectly well, ran around the shops, cleaned the apartment. In general, nothing said that I was in the last month. Lifestyle remained exactly the same as before pregnancy.
Discharge of waters
My childbirth began suddenly. Early in the morning my waters broke. There was no pain, just suddenly out of me came a lukewarm, transparent water. Then I, of course, again remembered all the terrible stories and began to wait for fights. But no pain in the abdomen at that time did not appear.
And here I am in the maternity hospital. After inspection, I was sent to wait for fights in the ward, where there was already one girl. Neighbor periodically writhing in pain. And I waited and waited … But no changes and new sensations were observed. Periodically, the doctor came into the ward, examined. Then a medical sister came to us with a question: will you eat ?.
The neighbor did not eat, and I gladly ate both my own and her portion. Pain, I did not wait. I think that, probably, it was not the water that moved away from me, maybe I spilled something on myself and did not notice it myself. With such thoughts in my head, I lay on the bed in the ward for some more time … My neighbor was taken to the nurse, and I was still waiting for fights.
Quite reassured that I was mistaken, and my birth had not yet begun, I went in search of a doctor; decided it was time to write out. I remember going down the hospital corridor and then I wanted to go to the toilet. She found a restroom, sat down on the toilet and began to push a little. But somehow it did not go, I think: And why only ate two servings, now the constipation has begun.
A doctor runs in here.
-Why did you go here? What are you doing?
I am so calm and say:
-I wanted to use the toilet. In general, write me, apparently the error came out.
The doctor patiently explains to me:
-You have a disclosure of 8 cm. Now they will bring a gurney.
The most curious thing is that I conducted this entire dialogue with the doctor, sitting on a white friend.
I climbed onto a gurney, but I did not have time to take me to the clan. Having once again worked hard, I gave birth to a beautiful healthy daughter. By the way, I still had time for lunch.
So do not believe all the creepy stories. Your childbirth can go very quickly and practically without pain. I know that now for sure!
