Hospital Stay with my Girl

I woke up on Saturday around 3:30am to a small wet spot on my bed, my water had ruptured and I was slowly leaking, and started feeling contractions!! so I took a quick shower, woke my hubby up (who said while still sleeping, can you postpone it another two hours?? 😫), grabbed my bags, headed to my parents’ house to leave my boy, and then to the hospital!!
(side note: sorry for the TMI, but it’s a birth story after all!)
.
.
.
In my first delivery with my boy, my husband was holding my hand all the time, and I remember how I was biting his hands with each contraction coming!! He and our families were all next to me until they took me to the delivery room!!! But now, although it’s the same hospital, they didn’t let my husband stay with me, they let everyone out but my mom, whom I fought to keep her by my side!!!
.
.
.
I just couldn’t push, the contractions were coming continuously and intensified! I’ve lost control and began crying my way through each painful moment! After two hours I could feel the pressure of the head coming out, and started to really freak out. I felt her coming, I was so scared, and hubby was not with me to calm me down, I was left alone in the delivery room, I was pretty dang nervous, I shouted and rang the bell to the nurses, who ran to me and called the hospital doc. Who came directly ( I hated that my doctor wasn’t there when I was ready to deliver) and I kept pushing and pushing… I felt like my eyes were going to pop out of their sockets because I was pushing so hard. Then a couple more pushes -which were the most painful- and she was out! It was the strangest/coolest sensation feeling her slide out of me. Then I was so tired, that I can’t remember what happened later!
.
.
.
When I woke up, we switched hospital rooms, and I got my private room, with a comfortable bed, and I got to nurse her for the first time, with a little help from my mom, it was unbelievably amazing. I felt like we instantly had this breathtaking connection and it felt so special! I was in absolute heaven to have my baby in my arms!
(side note: I know not everyone can breast feed, as for my first baby, I just couldn’t! But I’m sure any mom can have a special bond when feeding no matter how she feeds)
.
.
We stayed a couple nights at the hospital, and my grandma and my uncle ( after 5 years I got to see him) came from Canada to see me and my daughter, and that was absolutely amazing!!
.
.
With my first baby, I couldn’t get my own private room to recover in.. I had to share the room, and so we stayed just one night there. But this time I really wanted a private one, so we asked to be put on the list and we paid (a lot) but when we got it, it was really worth it. The hospital experience is too special to have to share it with some stranger’s phone conversations, noises, smells, and visitors!! I love peace and quiet when I’m snuggling my newborn the first time and I loved every second of cuddles with this cute girl!!
The hospital time with a new baby is my favorite 24 hours EVER!
.
.
.
With both babies it was so hard for me to sleep after, no matter how hard I tried, so I went over 36 hours without sleep – and would only sleep here and there after! At the end, we filled out her papers and headed home!
.
.
Nothing can describe the sheer euphoria I felt moments after giving birth. I distinctly remember my newborn resting on my chest, and the only thing I could think of was “Thank God, I did it”. It’s a great blessing being able to bring life, which I daily thank God for!
I realized that I had gained a new respect for women and a whole new respect for myself as an individual, a woman, a partner, a daughter, a sister, and a MOTHER! To say that I accomplished the hardest task in the world would be stopping short at the truth: I had been completely renewed!

  1. Oh my god!!! I don’t wanna get pregnant ever😂😂 But I do want a baby,my baby. And a girl ofcourse. Awwwwww this is the most beautiful feeling in the world. Holding a baby in your arms.. But I don’t wanna get pregnant😭 but I also want a baby😭 Cuz I love babies but I hate pregnancy.. How contradicting. I think adopting a baby is a good option. You can save two lives. One of an orphan and one of yours. As You literally die in the labour room. Okay stopping my nonsense. Your post just filled me with fear and love at the same time😂😂

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time and read my post. your comment is really sweet and funny, yes may adoption be a good choice when you just want to have a baby, but having a baby of your own is something that is no one ever can describe it, just holding your own baby in your arms, the minute he gets out of you, is a real blessing, I never trade it with anything else in the world 🙂

      1. Yeah that is.. Surely😆 But if only the baby gets out without much pain😁.Also when you adopt a baby you can choose whether it should be a boy or a girl which pregnancy never assures😂 and I would never want to be involved in “Male foeticide”. haha awkward term isn’t it??

  2. Lana, your account reminds me of the birth of my children. No words can do justice to the wonder of having the child you carried for nine months in your arms 🙂 Thank you for reading my space, it is so good to connect to another mother. 🙂

    1. Thank you for stopping by and an even bigger thank you for leaving a comment. I really do appreciate it when readers give me feedback.
      This is one of my favorite things about blogging. Being able to connect with people near and far 🙂 Great ‘meeting’ you 🙂

  3. Congratulations! 🙂

    You were pretty calm for someone who is about to give birth. I can’t believe you could still take a shower and drop your kid off. If it was me, I’d have kicked my husband off the bed, blame him for getting me pregnant if he said he needs more sleep, then go straight to the hospital.

    I can’t wait till I can have a little one of my own.

      Haha, that put the biggest smile on my face. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post and give me feedback.

      mabybe because it was my second experience -but still with my first I did the same-
      Or I was just afraid of going to hospital, so I was trying to think about something else..
      but I knew there’s no turning back, haha 😉

  4. Hi Lana, I’m father of a little girl 1 year old, and I like your text. I was with my wife in a hospital when our daughter was born and it was really special moment for me and my wife. That moment when I hold her for the first time I can even describe.
    Keep writing and give us more of good texts..
