That morning i was dressed early for my ante natal appointment
Mr gave me a ride, we hung out for a bit in his office and he dropped me off at the hospital
it was a normal ante natal day!!!
A friend of mine was also at the hospital that day and we kept each other company till the doctors arrived. She was there to have her baby that day and i wished her the best and went in to see the doctor.
He said he wanted to examine my pelvis, most disconcerting process i tell you LOL he actually stuck his fingers INSIDE me!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway in between my yells i heard him say " madam you're in labour, you're already 3cm dilated"
So i'm like what next!!!!!!!!
My hospital bag is barely packed, baby's room n clothes etc ain't fully ready. i'm barely ready as it is!!!
Neeways i sat the whole day in the hospital reading a novel and pitying the lady next to me who was in labour. she was groaning and i really felt strong to myself considering i was making no noise at all!!!!!!! had i known what awaited me...hmmm
By the time the doctor broke my water kai the pain had started, it's a combination of menstrual cramps and back ache... Indescribable actually
After what seemed like hours to me, (but husband said it was just minutes), we were in the labour room and men that stuff is real hard labour!!!
my back wanted to break and i felt like having a real hot shit.... i just kept screaming "i wanna pupu oh" LOL
Finally we did all the "push push" and baby slipped out. i was really fortunate no tears n stuff n from what my hussie said labour was only 15mins.it felt like hours to me...
And alas we had a beautiful baby boy :D
I got a few hours sleep this afternoon hence my ability to sit on the internet, and then I had so much to blog about but it's all flown outta my head!!!
Nepa has now struck, i better get into bed and start fanning this gentleman :D
