I am a BTech and MBA graduate. During my final semester, I got married and after that is when I appeared for my final semester exam. I later got a job in a private company in the procurement department. In life, we don’t know what can happen. Miracles can happen at any time. One day, I felt some uneasiness and I talked to my husband. I was feeling very weak and I had missed my periods. Missing periods is a common issue so I didn’t take it too seriously. But the days passed and it was the seventh day since I’d missed my periods, so I visited the hospital with my husband and consulted a gynaecologist. I came to know then that I was pregnant.
After that, I resigned from my job because my first preference was to take care of my little one. After a long wait of 9 months, early one morning, I felt labour pain. However, I was confused as to whether it was labour pain itself or not. My husband was not with me, so along with my mother and father, I visited the hospital. They took me to the labour room, checked, and said I have contractions.
I was the only person in the bed on that day. My doctor came and checked my vitals and my conditions, and said to the nurses that I was dilated 3 centimetres. They then began with all the procedures for normal delivery. But by chance, the membrane had ruptured and fluid was gushing outside in an abnormal way. The doctor immediately said to the nurses to call the operation theatre to prepare for an emergency C-section. They then took me to the operation theatre. After the procedure was done, I finally met our bundle of joy – a baby boy.
After the procedure, I met my mother and father through a window. I could see them but my vision was quite blurred. Next, I was moved to the post OP, which is where I spent the night, while my baby was in the NICU. The day after that, we both were moved into the room; but I did get a chance to meet my baby before that. That was an awesome experience I can never forget my entire life. My husband and I went to the NICU. Actually, I had seen my baby for the first time in a blurred way, inside the OT. I had that excitement; my mind said to me that I am going to meet my baby, I can see him, hold him! We entered the NICU and the nurse directed us towards our little one.
I met my baby, touched his little hands, fingers, legs, etc. They said they will give the baby for me to feed him and that I need to wait outside. I waited there and they placed him in my hands. As I am a single child to my parents, I didn’t even know how to hold such a little one.
Then, one of the nurses directed me on how to hold and feed him. That was a wonderful experience, as it was for the first time that I was holding my baby. After that, by evening, they gave the baby to us and some relatives were waiting in the room to see our baby. I had severe pain in the abdominal area but on seeing his face, I got some relief and I said to myself, “It was for him that we were waiting for!” That wait was over. And the pain I went through to get my baby boy was worth it!
