It’s a Girl! My Experience With My First Baby

On the morning of 18th October 2016, my water broke and I was wondering whether I should wash my hair or not. Then I decided that I should because after delivery I won’t get a chance anytime soon. Till that time, I hadn’t told anyone about it. After taking bath, more water started to discharge. So I told my mom and then I called my husband and we went to the hospital. The doctor said “thodi der me ho jayegi delivery”. I was induced by saline and then the contractions were so painful, that at a point I told my mom that I can’t do it and she said: “don’t give up, everything will be fine”. I was in the Operation theatre as the Labour room was already occupied. The contractions were coming and going. My doctor was waiting for the baby’s head to come out. One of the nurses even suggested to use a vacuum but the doctor refused. After two and a half hours, my baby was born and I was so happy that it was a girl, just as I wished for. The first question I asked was, “baby k sir pe baal hai na“? Once the baby was out, it was all silent, then I literally started shivering in the OT. While they were taking me to the general ward, on the way I told my husband “ek hi bas hai“. We had booked a general ward, but as all were full I was shifted to the special ward!. After that, they told me to take a rest, but I was on my mobile, excited to share the news with everyone. I even fainted while going to the washroom. The first night was good as the baby didn’t trouble, but then mom’s duty started which will continue for lifetime. This was my first experience.

Soon I’ll be sharing the second one. Thank you!
