June 1st : The Delivery.

by Reema on June 3, 2006

in My Kids, Pregnancy

I just came back from the hospital with our son in my arms πŸ˜€ , Ali is 8 lbs and 14 oz (about 4 kg) and he’s 21 inches tall (53.3cm) . After 3 miscarriages and losing hope that I’ll never see a child of my own finally now i could say i have a beautiful son!

When my water broke at 4:30 am just after morning prayer we rushed to the hospital. At 5:30 am i got admitted and prepared in the delivery room. Mom and my DH were nervous and i was shaking all over i couldn’t believe it was happening for real. My doctor asked me if i was having any contractions and i wasn’t, even though i was dilated 1.5 cm. When my contractions started i thought they would give me the epidural straight away but that wasn’t the case. The nurse said I had to wait until I was dilated 3 cm. I endured the waves of massive pain that hit me, I screamed,cried and I felt like passing out.

After 6 hours of screaming I was finally dilated to 3 cm and had the epidural, oh my god! it felt great! no pain at all they also had me on Pitocin to speed up my contractions. My friends, Shara and Anna Marie, came and I was happy. It was the first time my mom will witness a real actual birth. Time flew and my dilation was slowly progressing, when it was 10:30 pm i was 9.5 cm dilated and i felt every contraction but no pain thank god only pressure.

At 11:10 pm I was fully dilated and I started pushing with the help of my mom and the nurse. My DH was filming the whole thing with his camcorder. I admit watching a delivery on T.V was totally different when experiencing the real thing. Pushing every time a contraction began was soooo exhausted and in between contraction my DH placed the oxygen mask on me. I felt like passing out and couldn’t push anymore. At the end mom had to step away and let the doctor and 2 nurses to finish their job. It was one last final push and there he was Ali came out screaming πŸ˜€ when they placed him in my arms we all cried especially mom praying and praising. Words failed me as I can’t exactly describe that precious moment. 17 hours of labor it was worth every second, minute and pain, I would do it again.
