First Meeting With My Bundle of Joy In This Tough Situation

Last Updated on

Its Saturday 8th of august and we have an appointment with our gynaecologist for a regular checkup. I am in my 38th week of pregnancy. The doctor checked the heartbeat of the baby. He told me everything is normal and asked me to come back after seven days for another regular checkup. That day I was not feeling well; despite the stomach and backache, we travelled 10km for the checkup. When I came back home, we had lunch, and I fell asleep. When I woke up, it was already 7 pm.

I freshened up, and we all had dinner. The pain triggered after taking a walk, so I returned to bed, and around 12 am. My labour pain had started. Due to the pandemic, there was a shortage of beds in the hospital. We waited until 6 am and then rushed to the hospital. Within 2 hours, I delivered a cute little baby boy.

However, the hospital allowed only one person with the patient there. I felt discomfort as only my mother was with me; my father and my husband waited outside the hospital in the rain. The very next day, the doctor discharges us from the hospital.

But I faced problems breastfeeding. Despite the rainy season and due to the pandemic, the hospitals were allowing only limited patients. Still, we went to the doctor when my baby was only 15 days old. It was very tough to take the baby to the hospital because I wasn’t giving formula milk to the baby, so we had to take him along. The best thing was my husband is with me in every situation. After all of this, when my husband and I saw our bundle of joy, we forgot all the problems and thought whatever we have gone through in this situation, everything is worth it.
