February 1 @12:30 am – Unexpectedly, I started to feel pain in my lower back and in my lower abdomen. At first, I thought it was just a normal pain and when I told my husband about that, he told me that it might just be apanuhot. (I don’t know the English term for that). I texted my mom about how I felt that time and she said that I was experiencing the labor contraction. Around 6 am we went to the hospital together with my husband cos I was afraid that I might have the actual labor at home. We stayed in the hospital till noon and I was still experiencing the awful pain. I always asked my husband to rub down my lower back every time I experienced the contraction (there’s always interval in every contraction) because that’s the only way to alleviate the pain. The pain I felt that time was totally hurting as in hurting that you can’t explain. (I could say that, that was the most painful feeling I ever experienced). The contraction lasted until 2:30 pm and moments later, I felt the most painful contraction that will make you feel like dying. That moment, the midwives asked me to walk going to the delivery room but (my goodness!) I couldn’t move my feet even as single step because of the pain. So then, they helped me while I was taking my steps going inside the delivery room.
I was always calling God’s name when I was inside that room.
At 2: 55 pm Mary Janine came out safely and I thank GOD for that because he helped me how to make a strong push.
