Having a Birth Plan Ruined My Birth Experience
*TW: description of difficult birth I have always been a planner. If there was a checklist to be made, I made it. If there was a schedule to create or an itinerary to prepare, I did it. I was, and still really am, the typical Type A Planner. So, when I got pregnant and heard about this thing called a Birth Plan, I knew it was my time to shine. I talked to everyone I knew who had given birth. I read piles of books on pregnancy and the birthing process. I knew my options and I knew what I wanted. And I definitely knew what I didn’t want. I wrote out my Birth Plan (on the Birth Plan form provided by my doctor) and gave a copy to the hospital, my Ob-Gyn, and my midwife team. I knew exactly how my birth experience was going to play out (If you’ve given birth, please don’t laugh too hard at me here). And this Plan was exactly what ruined the very birth experience I had, well, planned.
She says, “I’m pregnant.” He had been working in the garage, cleaning the drawers of his toolbox. Wrenches and drill bits and a hammer that had been his uncle’s, given to him on the day his father passed away, lay around him, caked in the dust of the far back corner of the garage where his toolbox has sat, unattended, for months. Maybe years. But yesterday, when the handle of the silverware drawer had become just a little too loose he had decided to fix it, and so found himself faced with the task of finding the appropriate tool within the mess of this box. But, while the drawer handle in the kitchen remained just slightly loose, he had set out on the journey to clean out and reorganize the box. And it is at the point that he has reached the far back corner of the bottom section and rubbed out the last little oily spot that she says, “I’m pregnant”. He pauses, first looking at his warped reflection in the polished chrome handle and then up at her. The glow of the yellow garage light casts pale shadows across her face. He searches her eyes for a clue as to what his reaction is supposed to be and comes up blank.
It Is All About You!!!
Can we first admit that pregnancy is one of the most vulnerable times a woman will experience in her life? If you are anything like me you like control and pregnancy literally takes over everything (even your bodily functions). Rendering your mind, body, and soul to the epic adventure that is pregnancy is hard but amazing at the same time. Unfortunately, despite the intensive work it takes to literally grow an entire human being from scratch, there are several women who feel their pregnancy and birth we're not theirs.
“What is it with you”? I said, yelling with fury inside. “What do you mean”? Hector says not comprehending the whole situation. “You can’t even formulate a single conversation with my family without being negative or using my name or about the baby in it”! I screamed. By now my rage was bouncing from wall to wall. He responds, “Yes I can, I’ll prove it to you.” “Okay.” I said feeling reluctant to even let the boy try. I knew in my heart this was going to be hard for me to accept but I had to because the obstacles in my life were not in any way going to belittle me or discourage me from accomplishing all my goals.
An Embarrassing Dilemma
I don't forget 31st July 1999 easily. Me and my husband were due to go to the hospital for a check-up on our baby. I was 2 days late already, and getting really fed up with it. I'd tried everything to get it going, moving around, getting on all fours, and we even walked the entire length of Temple Newsam, but no! this baby was staying where it is, it didn't want to be born, it was quite comfortable inside me. The baby was still moving around alot, despite the size of her, and despite the strong kicks, she still refused to come out! I was carrying a girl who kicked strong and almost knocked me over, but even that wasn't enough to get my labour going. I was on the toilet every 5 minutes because every time the baby kicked, she seemed to take pleasure kicking my bladder. It was getting totally embarrassing, because people thought I was incontinent and I had to explain I was pregnant. We went for 5 different walks that day, and we even tried sex, but no, this baby wasn't coming.
We got to the birthing center in Kailua on Sunday night on the cusp of 41 weeks... though originally I had intended on going all natural it seemed that a little nudge would be helpful. That nudge slowly turned into a full round-house kick into motherhood.
Not all pregnant women experience morning sickness and dizziness
Statistics indicate that 70% of pregnant women endure morning sickness which can actually happen at any time of the day. The entertainment business has given a false impression to viewing audiences that 100% of females who are expecting a baby are throwing up and fainting when it is not true. I can recall the first time I was expecting a child and my grandmother told me I was going to be very sick. She shared how she had been walking through the produce market area and threw up when she smelled fish coming from a nearby business.
