Love our Mother







I saw this in Facebook and it is really true. I remember my 10 hours of waiting before delivering my baby, on my 6th hour, I was really crying because I can no longer tolerate the pain. I cannot explain it but it is really painful and I don’t know where the pain is coming from. I’m asking for anaesthesia already but they do not want to give it yet for a simple reason “baka hindi daw ko makaire”. At the back of my mind, I’m paying additional P10k for that and you’re depriving me. I know my threshold for pain so I really chose painless birth. Anyway, they called my OB and asked for permission and of course my OB agreed because that was she said to me before she left, “kung hindi mo na kaya yung pain, sabihin mo agad”.

But I don’t think they gave me anaesthesia because I can still feel the pain, they just gave me sedative to calm me. 10PM and I was in delivery room and I no longer feel anything and after pushing the baby, I passed out. When I woke up, I immediately asked the nurse, where is my baby?  And I was happy to know and see that he’s alive because I was really nervous, the last words that I’ve heard before I passed out, “pulupot ang cord” and “wag ka na umire” and I did not hear his first cry.

I cannot describe the pain but one thing for sure that the sweetest rewards always come from the hardest struggles. I've suffered enough during my pregnancy and labor, but there are no words good enough to express the joy of motherhood.

  1. Kudos talaga sa mga mommy sis. I know how painful it is kasi nakita ko kung pano ang hirap ng mga mother sa delivery room and I feel scared na manganak dahil mababa ang pain tolerance ko.

  3. jhaney - yan din takot ko kaya nagpainless ako. =)

    jo - kaya girl's talaga nakakaappreciate sa mom nila kasi nafifeel nila yung pain once na nanganak sila. so paano na ang anak natin, parehong boys, hindi nila mafifeel. hehe!

  4. I agree with you. Childbirth was so painful. I was injected with an epidural but I still felt it when it started wearing off. Nanginginig pa tuhod ko nun. Really scared. I wished my hubby could have been there to hold my hand unfortunately, he was not allowed inside the delivery room. =(

  13. i love my mom.

    naalala ko yung sabi niya na dapat mahalin ang mga babae. ang sabi niya, pagka nanganganak ang isang babae, parang nasa hukay na ang kabilang paa niya.

  15. Trust me, I know what you went through. I almost died since my heart rate went to 120+ ... crazy no? Still, I love my baby and I'm glad I had him.

  16. I know pregnancy and going through labor is hard, but I didn't know that it feels as if bones are being fractured. This made me appreciate my mom and all moms even more. At the same time, it kinda scares me.. >.<

  17. "I cannot describe the pain but one thing for sure that the sweetest rewards always come from the hardest struggles" - Just before reading your last paragraph, this must be my comment but you have mentioned pala sa huli. hehe.

    Well, that's the essence of womanhood!

  18. In every struggles, there is always a consequence of rewards. This is what I get as a gist from your blog, particularly this line: "The sweetest rewards always come from the hardest struggles." In other words, when there's no pain, there's no gain. But in giving birth to an infant where pain is unbearable so to speak, but after that is an endless happiness for giving life to a "spirit child" of God.

  26. I know a few people who didn't want to feel that labor pain. One is my mother, who is a doctor herself. She told me that she doesn't know the feeling of labor pain and she's happy that she never experienced it. Not sure how that goes but she said it was timing. They just decided to get me out on the day of the delivery using a c-section.

  27. ^ayaw ko naman maCS, mas mahirap magheal ang tahi e. =)

    kathy - grabe yung experience mo.

    chrisair - ako 10hrs lang pero on my 6th hr, hindi ko na kaya yung sakit.

    stacy - ganyan din ako before, but you'll never know unless you become a mother.
