Being a Mother – Part 4

My parents had booked their tickets to reach my inlaws place around my last week of due date. Dont know suddenly they thought that they should prebook their tickets. They came one week earlier and even my contractions started. Along with that my husband got tested covid positive and he can’t be anywhere near me. He got admitted himself for 15 days.
Luckily my mother was there at the right time.
For 2 nights I had contractions every 10 , 15 , 30 minutes..  since it was not on the same durations I took it as a false alarm. I was waiting if we could delay some more and I could hold on for few days ..atleast my husband will be there during the delivery time.
I was in pain and I could rarely sleep at night hence after 2 nights my mother told me to call doctor and explain the situation. Early morning 5am I called doctor on 29th April and she immediately told me to get myself admitted and do the covid tests for my mother as she is my caretaker. Also they wanted me to repeat the covid test since I was in contact.

It was one of the best hospital..they took proper care of me. I did a lot of breathing practice and was well prepared on what to do during the whole process.
I was having mild contractions and also I had gestational diabetes..doctor told me not to delay. They induced me and woww the pain…Can’t explain. Initially I was fine..with each contractions I would breathe out and think about the baby. I was able to manage.  I was dilating slower and they made me excercise on birthing ball. With each pain , I was asked to do sit ups. Nurses supported me by holding my shoulders and pushing me down.  I kept asking them the time.. every 15 minutes and finally after 2 hours I got exhausted. They asked me if I wanted epidural before but I said no.. now what to do..

My doctor was giving me hope..  just half an hour.. hold on.. and yes I was somehow able to do it! Keep focusing on your breathing.
After 4 hours..  I pushed with all the strength and along with all screaming my throat was almost gone.
Babies voice 🥰 the crying sound. Baby is crying but you are smiling and happy 😍

If I have to describe the whole journey..I can write a book and it would not be enough.

Today she has turned 1 year .. oh my God! Time flies so fast.

The best blessing in my life is my sweet Baby.

To every Mother.. ” You are awesome, you are beautiful. No matter you have someone with you or you are alone.. you can achieve anything cause you are strong. Never give up your happiness , your career for anything. You can find a way if you think and you can do it. “
