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.
