Who would’ve thought that a normal day will turn into one of my most memorable days?

We are scheduled for my monthly pre natal check up when my OB messaged me and asked how am I doing. I told her I have been feeling terrible back pains and I can’t barely walk because of the pain I am feeling between my thighs. Then she called me and told me that I have to eat ang full meal before I go to the hospital and no need for me to go to her clinic. I was instructed to go directly to the emergency room and have myself admitted.
Oh. My. Gosh. I was caught off guard that I was not able to respond right away! After that phone call from my OB, I told Yomi about it and called my family. They were all excited for me and were cheering for my safe delivery!
I cannot understand how am I feeling that very moment. A lot of thoughts came into my mind. But I’ve been waiting for so long, and I can no longer wait to see and hold my little munchkin.
After an hour or two, I was already admitted and was sent to the delivery room. And they started to induce me. I looked at the clock and it was 7:30pm when I started feeling mild contractions. It was tolerable at first and I thought I could handle it because I have been having continuous menstrual cramps before. Then I fell asleep. Until I woke up and I am gradually feeling the labor pain already. Now the pain is no longer bearable and I was literally crying and begging the nurses to give me the anesthesia. When I can no longer endure the pain, all I did was cry and shout that I do not want to continue it any longer. (Seriously! Hahaha) I can no longer remember the exact things that happened. After I had the epidural, I fell asleep and next thing I know, I am in the recovery room.

My vision’s still blurry and I was trying to recognize people around me. The nurse in charge told me to not move yet and I need to stay relaxed. I asked her why am I feeling something heavy on my tummy, then the nurse told me that I had to deliver my baby through an emergency CS-section for my cervix isn’t responding anymore. It only dilated up to 7cm and my baby’s starting to poop already, so they decided to have an emergency CS-section.
After being able to move my legs, the nurse in charge told me that I can already be transferred to my room. And they finally showed to me my little munchkin. I then exclaimed “I’m a mother already! She’s beautiful!”
I can’t take my eyes off of my Anastasia. I am in awe of her beauty. It is really true that you’ll be able to forget all the pain once you are able to see and hold your baby. I am definitely the happiest during that moment!
More stories to come!
