Hi all! My due date was on 26th Feb 2015. I went for a regular checkup on 12th Feb 2015, and that’s the time I got to know that my water level is very low. It was 2.5 (minimum should be 6) so therefore, I had to get operated within 2 days. I wasn’t mentally prepared for normal delivery as I was very much scared of injections and all. But, at that time there was no other thing in mind – but to just wanna meet my baby. Doc asked me to choose the date , so the day was 14 Feb. I went to the hospital, I was totally blank as I had never ever been admitted to the hospital prior to this. In the hospital, the first thing they did was that they gave me anesthesia and after I guess 10-15 mins I heard the doc saying congrats you gave birth a to a healthy baby, there’s towel on my face, they uncovered that and showed me my baby. It was the most beautiful face I had ever seen in my life, as he looked at me with his eyes.
Delivery was a very beautiful journey and is still going on. Just love to be his mom, we share an amazing bond with each other.
P.S would be moms: There’s no pain bigger than the day of our baby born . Just go with the flow. Stay happy. Now I really miss that pregnancy time. It was amazing.

I was expecting my first baby. The due date was 26 June 2013. Was living with my most caring and loving family. On 23rd June, in the night suddenly I got the pain in lower abdomen. The pain was like increasing and decreasing in a continuous manner. Though it was my first experience I concluded it as my labour pain as I heard others’ experiences and went through many articles.And I was very right. In the morning around 5 am I went to the hospital with my husband, Mil(Mother-in-law) and Fil(Father-in-law). I thought within 2 to 3 hrs I would give gud news to them but…but…but…
I was in constant pain inside the room and my family was waiting outside. In that hospital, you were not allowed to meet ur family till the arrival of the baby or any other serious issue. It was unbearable for me now… the doctor was on round, came to me , checked and suggested for operation. I never thought of it because everything was normal. Sisters told me that baby pooped inside and to rescue the little one from any kind of infection and for my sake it was necessary. So the legal formalities were completed by me and my family. I was allowed to meet them before operation lying on the stretcher. That was the moment, I was scared for the first time as if I was seeing them for the last time. My mil was asking something I don’t remember. ..my husband just looked at me and we talked with eyes that everything would be fine. Suddenly the wheel of my stretcher got loose or what …i don’t know….but i fell down with the mat as it was. I got minor injuries but Thank God, nothing happened major. There were so many staffs but the hand came first to help me out was of my love…my husband. Somehow I balanced myself with all his support. I was in trauma, not able to talk to doctors properly. Soon I came into senses….started asking ‘is my baby ok?’ Through out the operation, I repeatedly asked this question only. It was 5:24 pm. I got my baby girl. She was all good. Sister brought her near to my face. She was all pink with a cute face. The best creation on the planet….Daughter.

Hello all. Mine was c-section. Due was on 14 nov and my water bag burst on 30 oct on Diwali (Hindu Festival). Rushed to the hospital at 5.30 but due to the holiday, no doctor was there as it was a small town. I never went through any pain. Went 50 kms far in another city and finally, the doctor came at 7.45 and delivered my cute doll at 8.31. No water was left so doctor opted for a c-section as there was no chance of a normal delivery. Around 10.30 nurse came with my sweetie and she was looking too cute in pink cloth. When i saw my doll i was in the seven sky . Thank you, god, for giving me my angel, my lifeline.

My birth story is a pretty crazy one. It was all planned as no signs of labour was there. We planned it on the auspicious day of “MahaShivrati” (Hindu Festival). A night before I was scared of surgery and crying. But, the morning was blissful. We went to temple & then reached the hospital. It was the time to get our lil bundle of joy to this beautiful world.
It was obviously scary for me to be on OT table, a team of docs around me, a chilly room, big lights…besides all the fear I was happy & excited, talking to docs continuously. My eyes were covered, the body was numb, didnt know wat was happening just busy in talking with docs. Then suddenly i heard a baby cry and that was the heart throbing moment for me. I actually heard her, wat i was feeling inside me for 9 months! I saw her, I touched her for the first time, I was speechless just a tear in eye and smile on face. They took her away in seconds but that moment stopped there for me. And then my excitement was beyond my control. Smile, tears, extreme happiness. No one will believe that on OT table I started discussing my baby’s name with docs, her looonnnggg shopping list, every thing. I cudn’t resist myself.
But life isn’t easy the way we think. After 3 months of her birth, we came to know that my baby’s a special kid with a rare disorder “Osteogenesis Imperfecta”. But nothing could take away the charm of motherhood. Just always b happy, b positive, eat well, sleep well!!!
Rest god z there to serve us best.

Hello everyone. My due date was 7 Nov. But on 8 Oct in the night, I was not feeling well. I checked my blood pressure it was high again checked it was low, I drank Limca with salt to control BP. But suddenly in morning, I was bleeding just like periods. I rang my gynae at 6:30 am on 9 oct. She just asked me to visit the clinic for cesarean delivery. I was very scared about my baby as it was my first delivery after 6 years of marriage. We reached in the clinic at 9 am.Sister checked my BP and baby’s heartbeat. Both were ok. I was relaxed at the moment that my baby was fine but growth was stopped after 7th month which was seen in the ultrasound. According to gynae, my baby was premature. I was doing prayers for my baby.

Hi all! I have gone through both procedures. Actually, my due date 21st feb and labour pain started 20th feb morning. Firstly i didn’t understand but when pain intensity and frequency increased i told my mil. She told it happened normally. Around 4 pm i had a lot of water discharge and then we rushed to the hospital. Dr had given me injections for da increasing pain and said it will be a normal delivery. After 2 hrs of pain, Dr. came to observe and said dirty water is coming and we can’t wait for normal delivery. We should go for c-sec. And then around 8:35 pm my little angel born. My delivery was combined of all labour pain, fear, anxiety, anaesthesia all.
My second delivery was planned c-sec. No pain at all.

Hello everyone.. it was the last day of my 8th month and my water bag broke in night and i was in extreme pain. I had no idea of this situation as it had never happened earlier. Next morning me with my hubby went to hospital where doctor declared that its the case of emergency operation. Because, as the water bag broke in 8th month only. But, the major problem that occurred was that there was no nursery in hospital and my husband was alone with me. We both took a tough decision to travel for 30 kms and reach a multispeciality hospital as the case was complicated for me n my baby too. I was having damn pain and worst mare was that my baby changed his position in last minute. But, finally all tough time came to an end and i delivered baby boy on 28 may. He was in nursery for 1 week but at last every thing ends well.
