My baby supported me a lot during labor. He listened to me super carefully.
To all the beautiful mom to be’s,
Doubtless, you are in an amazing phase of your life first & foremost enjoy every bit of it .. be it a pain in pregnancy or pampering from family & friends. As it’s gonna be a beautiful journey which will end as soon as you will enter into another incredible phase of MOTHERHOOD.
My experience of pregnancy has been fun with my friends, family, & a full batch of P101. I joined P101 during my 8th month which I wish I could have joined much earlier to have more fun… every day I was excited about the class (belly dance is still my favorite). It was fun exercising plus being part of every to be mothers journey. Sharing experiences every day was fun too. I stayed very positive during my pregnancy thanks to Tushita ma’am.. she was always there…during my last month she had to travel & same time even my doctor was travelling and that literally freaked me out .. I wanted both of them to be available for me . Then Tushita ma’am told me to stay positive & decide the date when I want a baby to come, and that day I decided I wanted an Eid baby & Ii delivered my baby boy on Eid day .. can’t thank ma’am enough for changing my perception.
I am writing my whole experience now after 2 months of delivering so that I can share the whole idea of pregnancy & post pregnancy: I went into labor on 4 June 2019 Eid day as per the deal I made with my baby. My water broke at 5am but I was very sleepy. Then I used the app called full term which I followed since 5 o’clock. To monitor my all contractions. I was fully educated and confident to not to freak out or run to the hospital. I was on the bed till 8:30-9 trying to sleep but the pain was there every 15-20 mins. I didn’t wake up any of my family members because I thought they would freak out (not very smart decision though). by 8:30-9 I woke up… I had a little bit of breakfast n told my family that we need to go to the hospital. But I was gonna deliver a beautiful soul so I wanted to look beautiful for my child. My little one should know his mumma is pretty took a head shower did blow dry. And got ready and went to the hospital. Of course, the pain was crazy all while but I didn’t want to stay in the hospital climate for a longer period of time.. After that I did my prayers and left for hospital very happily .. I had decided in my head & told my family even if I say please don’t get me operated.. cos I really really want to do normal delivery.. as soon as I reached hospital the doctor told me I will deliver it maximum before night .. I did ask him a lot of questions like how much have I dilated , baby’s heartbeat is correct or no , about kangaroo practice etc… its very important to prepare yourself because when you lose your patience at later stage this helps to rethink about your decisions.. for me it was only 2-4 hours left & for 2 -4 hours of pain I was not gonna do c sec. delivery ..My husband played a very very important role too. my husband remembered everything of the labor class at p101. he followed everything.. he didn’t give me any lecture, supported me at every second in labor… I did push him away but he held me throughout.. he made me dance also made me smile for a second in super pain .. hours passed by soo much pain n continuously I was talking to my child inside that baby u are coming to me soonest. today is the day. I understand it’s gonna painful for him also while coming out .i told him lets help each other today .. this all helped me a lot .n luckily not for a moment I thought about getting operated.. an I continuously did my squats & breathing .i didn’t eat anything and just was drinking Jaggery water for full-day ( helped me to not to puke & gave me energy) ..
My baby supported me a lot, he listened to me super carefully & he didn’t trouble me & came early by evening time & not waited till the night .. I did hold him as soon as he was out for 30 seconds & literally I forgot all my pain. this feeling will come to u all pretty ladies super soon…
I had a normal delivery without epidural injection ..& I m very much proud of myself & my baby today..it was indeed super crazy ride ..😍😍😍.
Please, ladies, believe in urself & believe in ur baby tooo.. you both are stronger than u think …that’s why u guys are blessed with the beautiful soul inside you ..
Little bit about post-delivery also:
people say it’s a lot of pain after delivery .. the baby will not let you do this or that & your night will be crazy… it’s almost 2-months with my baby n he has not troubled me at all.
moment I start talking to him he understands.. till today he sleeps at the night when I tell him please sleep .. when I tell him please baby meet people happily & be thankful to them for meeting you he smiles back to them .. I did take him to Tushita ma’am where he just slept after shower & massage, still he opened his eyes saw ma’am and he gave her nice big smile & slept again .. he is such a darling .. he believes in not troubling anyone .nor me or my family or not even maushi I kept for night to look after him..
STAYING POSITIVE IS THE KEY & REMEMBER: YOUR BABY IS LISTENING TO YOU SO U DNT LISTEN TO NEGATIVE PEOPLE…YOUR BABY LOVES YOU MORE THAN U LOVE YOUR BABY BECAUSE U HAVE OTHER PEOPLE TO TRUST ON BUT YOUR BABY IS COMING IN THE WORLD ONLY ON YOUR TRUST.
YOUR BABY IS SPECIAL & DIFFERENT… BELIEVE & LIVE WITH IT EVERYDAY.
ONE IMP THING: ABOUT YOUR STRETCH MARKS & PIGMENTATION DURING UR PREGNANCY TAKE PHOTOS OF ALL. I have taken it so that I can teach my kid to respect older people & they should be proud of us too… My son should respect all women & should not support body shaming.
WE ARE WARRIORS.😍😍😍 AND YOU ALL ARE SMART & BEAUTIFUL 😘😘 😘 GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU ❤ I still have a lot to say and that’s gonna be never-ending 😜
THANK YOU TUSHITA MA’AM & P101 FOR GIVING US AMAZING TIME…
