It is every woman’s dream to become a mother once you mature. It is so tough, but no woman will ever wish not to have a woman. At the first day, the mother will be full of anxiety and so on. I had no baby, and this was my first time to be a mother. Anticipation and joy both within me, I waited anxiously for that day that the baby will come out and call me mum. The doctor had just proved that my pregnancy test was positive. I remember the feeling I had after getting the feedback message from the doctor that I was going to have a baby. I called my husband to come and celebrate with me.
I had been married for more than three years, and there was no sign of conceiving. This situation troubled my conscious making it impossible for me to concentrate or do anything meaningful in my marriage. Three years after marriage was a long time that I waited for my lovely gift of a kid in vain. The news of being pregnant brought excitement to my heart. The excitement was overwhelming that I even made it hard for me to realize the pain that I will encounter while giving birth. After a few months, reality dawned on me, and though I was excited, I started feeling scared for I had not been ready for the main process of giving birth. Moreover, my family was far from where I stayed, and this was a bit difficult on my side. The delivery time was my big worry for my husband was always busy at work, and that made it appear more dangerous letting me stay by myself with the dangers that posed.
At exactly 8 months, I developed preeclampsia, my situation worsened and at this point what we I required was ensuring that I get enough check-ups and visit the clinic frequently for more information on the baby’s health and my health too. My body was weak, but my mother encouraged me helping me to struggle and believe that one day, my child will come out and see the light. As the days past, I was able to estimate the day that I will deliver the baby to the world. The pain encountered never stopped me from having all the best. My smile was restored with the fact that I was going to have the best, a chance of carrying my own child. My dream was becoming a reality.
It was exactly after nine months that I felt the labour pains, they became very intense that I had to visit a doctor. I was admitted and put on time to time monitoring due to my situation and health. After several hours of pain, the doctor checked me and discovered another scary situation. The baby had turned and moved on the wrong position hence making it difficult for normal delivery. The doctor opted for an emergency caesarean. The experience of this process was more painful and this made it more hopeless on my side. After hours of maximum pain, they then induced anaesthetics in my system that reduced the pain. The pain slowly disappeared and all I saw was a faint face of the doctor and nurses surrounding my delivery bed. The process went on well, and the baby was finally brought to the world. After regaining my conscious and energy, I desperately called out the doctor to see my baby, all this was not working. Tension grew each minute that passed, my heart pounding like drums, the only remaining hope was to ask God to allow me to have the baby alive and in good shape.
After an hour, the doctor allowed me to see the most precious person in my life. My dream had come true, I had a baby and my heart relaxed. I was very happy for this moment changed my life forever. Nevertheless, there was a situation on the ground. The baby was unwell, and it had to be looked after in the NICU after developing respiratory problems. The doctor advised that it should be transferred to a better facility due to its condition. The news after that was that I was to be separated from the baby for 4 weeks. Each day proved to be very difficult to me for my baby was away from me. After the four weeks had passed, the baby came home. The air was filled with happiness and amongst all, my mum was around, and she helped me with the baby. The visitors were restricted from the house due to the baby’s weak immune system. My mother moved in with us to always assist me with the baby for I had to go back to work and this made me sad not watching it growing. My child has grown tall, and I am happy to be a mother
