My first labour experience
Diana shares her labour story with theAsianparent.com
My first labour experience was a joy. I had a false labour about a month before my EDD (estimated delivery date). Afterwhich, I was asked to be on bed rest. My waterbag burst on a Wednesday afternoon. We consulted a midwife but was given a choice either to wait or go to the hospital immediately as my waterbag didn’t burst all
We finally arrived at the hospital in the evening after having dinner at Swensens. I didn’t experience any contractions and wasn’t dilating. I was having contractions th next day and it got worst every other minute. Still, I wasn’t dilating. After consulting my gynae, I was finally induced and gradually started to dilate.
Throughout my first labour experience, I didn’t take any epidural. And at last, on Friday, 17th April 2009 my first princess was born. Exactly on my EDD!
That was indeed an experience of a life time! Hope my next labour in September will be a smoother one!
