my firstborn was breech so no choice gotta do c-section. felt cheated first time round.
second time round wanna be hero to try natural, turn out, ds head too big. cervix never dilate. felt like death came a-calling
third time round, be good and be smart liao, just pick a date get small one out.
sigh.... 3 times, still no natural birth.
Funny la you! Cracked me up big time!
After an arduous beyond 13hrs labour without epidural... Well, 1st time, still gong-gong... dunno wat type and wat level of pain oredi wanna go hospital.. .. go to early.. kena strapped up.. the wait was like awaiting death cos contractions were really a new sorta pain never knew about so I remember making a mental note that i wanted to try anything else other than have baby (if I had another) come out the natural way.
2nd time went in abit later, came out of delivery room in mere hours to be taken to ward. Delivery itself was about an hour plus stitching. Baby was big, hurt like ............
After so long, 8 yrs to be close.. kena ambushed.. dread to experience the pain agn after so long forgotten. As an older mom with #3, soooooo many complications. Down syndrome.. Deformation.. Brain/neuro issues.. Had meat-like growth come out I thought I miscarried.. Almost miscarried second time around, had to take those painful thigh jabs.. Ended up with most challenging birthing ordeal amongst the four.. he had no breathing after he came out.. no crying.. no movement.. his neck was tilted so he was not able to exit as smoothly though already engaged.. I pushed till I thought I had nothing left.. My lower ribs n tummy bruised from the gynae's hard pushes to which I allowed him to (just do anything to get baby out).. But chubs came out perfect.
