Should I buy lilypadz or just buy disposable bosom pads? I don't want to create more waste, but if the maintenance and cleaning are a pain then I'd rather just use throw-aways. Suggestions?

lily padz

Mum used to tell us that ladies that did not misbehave during teenage e.g alcohol,pills and abortion amongst others usually have easy delivery.

So ladies beware of over flexing, you are killing yourself gradually cos when it gets to that time, you would be the one to bear the brunt of it

I had a miscarraige in june 2008 which traumatised me alot even though it was not a planned pregnancy but we accepted it and were ready to have the baby but unfortunately it came out at 12 weeks. I cried and was worried i might not be able to give birth in my life. Soon after that my then fiancé began pressurizing me to take in but i didnot want to coz my doctor adviced me to stay for some months. One year later we did our traditional wedding and my husband continued asking me to take in(u know it depends on the lady coz if she dos not want, then NO WAY) I wanted to get pregnant just before or after the civil and church wedding so i tried to talk to him. In september 2009 we decided to start trying to conceive. That month i cried my life when my menses came, i started googling everything concerning trying to conceive and even join the TTC thread on the health section. October we tried and still nothing. When i complained to my doctor he said not to worry and refused to give me any medication. November we tried but i knew nothing would happen but to my greatest surprise i missed my period (at dat time my guy was the one doing the counting.) Few weeks later the symptoms started. My God it was awful. I went for a pregnancy test and it was positive. days later i started spotting blood. I rushed to the hospital and forced the doctor to do a scan. he did and placed me on progestan. My December was a mess; i got sick, hospitalised and could not work for a whole month. no appetite, sensitive to smell, i could not even cook coz i would end up vomiting, my husband could not even used his perfume when i am around. Our civil and church wedding was scheduled for march. I went through all the stress of marraige preparations with this pregnancy and all the time i was scared somthing would happen to my baby. Thanx to God nothing happened to my baby, the wedding went on well and i started looking forward to my delivery date.

At 39 weeks and some days i started having irregular contractions but not too strong for me to go to the hospital. I later on went to see my doctor at 40 weeks and he ruptured my mucus plug,( it hurts) Contrations continued but they were barable. after 2 days when nothing happened my doctor asked me to come to the hospital so i could be induced. Dat monday monday we went to the hospital, my mother and my hubby. I was insserted a tablet and asked to lie down for about 4 hours, still no strong contractions,then the doctor asked the midwife to give me drips and that was when the real show started. I WAS DISCUSSING AND LAIFFING WITH MY DOCTOR? MIDWIFE AND MY HUBBY AND SUDDENLY MY COUNTENANCE CHANGED the pains had started. God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! see painnnnnnnn. I shouted ooo breathed in and out oooo but no releif. I prayed ooooooooooo. I had the doctor , midewife and hubby to massage my waist and back. About three hours later i had to pushhhhhhhhhhh. I pusheddddddddddddddddddd and pushedddddddddddddddddddd and pusheddddddddddddddddd then i felt the doctor give me a tear and when i pusheddddddddddddddddd again she came out. she wwas placed on my tummy and opened her eyes looked and me and cried. OOOOOOOOOO i had done it, i felt so happy. She was 3.9kg. But guess wht!! dat was not all ooo.

I started bleeding heavily so much dat i started feeling dizzy, my doc was confused as he did not know where all the blood was coming from. not from the womb he said. When he saw dat i was loosing to much blood, he asked for blood from the blood bank. my blood was matched and ii was the same with what they had. but before they could bring the blood, he had already found out that the blood was coming from my torn cervix. my baby gave me terrible tears; from my vaginaa to my anus. all the pains i felt durin labour and delivery was nothing compared to what i felt during the stitching. i had more than 25 stitches and gues wht! :my cervix had to be brought out so it could stitch it. i cried, shouted and until i had no more strength left. I stayed 3 more hours in the labour room after delivery. I could not eat solid food for days and to sit well was a nitmare.

After all that when i look at my baby girl today I give praise to God. and no matter all what i went through, i still want more kids. she would be 4 months on thursday and she is so lovable, pretty and jovial.

too long huh

My first pregnancy was rather unexpected,I took in eight days after marriage.I didn't know I was pregnant.I was still working out and doing sit ups.Rather than shed weight,I was putting on weight so I exercised harder in order to keep fit.I didn't miss my period immediately.When i finally did.I did a test,it turned out positive.I had to slow down and take things easy.

I was strong almost through out.No morning sickness,But I couldn't stand meat in the first trimester.My sense of smell was very strong.If you wanted to tell an original perfume from a fake one I was the tester you needed then.LOL.My hubby became a master at massaging when I got to my third trimester cos my back used to hurt from time to time.

I was registered at baby centre itz a wonderful sight for pregnant women.(Ladies take note) babycenter.com.I got all the details weekly from that sight.Woe betide you then if you've ever had a child and you came in contact with me.I was very inquisitive wanted to know every thing about pregnancy n delivery.

I knew everything theory though I didn't attend antenatal classes(Couldn't was a corp member then can't be excused twice a week).I read anything related to pregnancy.Was online researching most of the time.

I questioned my mum,my elder sister,Aunty anybody and everybody.My sister told me not to rush to the hospital and to wait until my baby's head engaged before going to the hospital.(I was lucky in my first pregnancy my baby's head engaged nothing like that in my second pregnancy)When I went into labour,I was very calm and I waited until my baby's head engaged.I heard the pop pop sound.Then the real labour started.LOL.I woke my hubby.It was about 2am or so.I couldn't move.I was to get dressed but just couldn't my hubby talked me through.I finally manged to get dressed.(I took Castor oil to cleanse my system and free the pathway so you don't poo all over the doctors n midwives)

Himself and my younger sister took me to the hospital.In btw i had very strong and painful contractions,they kept coming faster and closer.(When my sis touched me to console me,I was very irritated n angry with her,I flung her hand away from my body.She was shocked.I apologized when the pain subsided didn't realize what i did at the time.) lol

We finally got to the hospital.It took me only an hour to have my first baby.The nurses n doc.said it was a miracle for a first pregnancy.The most wonderful thing about pregnancy, labour and child birth is that you forget the pain.In fact when it was time for my second baby,I didn't remember what contractions felt like.You would think that after all that ache and pain a woman will refuse to get pregnant again.You'll say that.The minute my first baby turned two.I practically begged and bullied my hubby to get to work for a second one.lol.Itz important to space your kids so your body will heal very well before undergoing that body and hormonal stress again.

Women are really blessed,

Hi I'm 4 months pregnant with my first and after being told by doctors it would be hard to get pregnant here i am expecting a baby that was not even planned for. This page is very useful cos most times women don't tell you what they go thru - u just have to find it all out for yourself.

First trimester for me was hard, hot all the time, no appetite, throwing up, very sensitive to any smell, extremely tired, very tearful, one day I'm happy the next day i want to my husband out of the house, insomnia, constant trips to the toilet, constipation back ache and pain in my stomach (due to fibroid). I don't even want to talk about what the havoc the bosoms have been causing me (not that hubby is complaining!)

all in all i cannot wait until the baby is born, its not easy o - but its worth it.

My pregnancy was quite interesting though. When my husband and I got the news that I was pregnant we were overjoyed funny enough it came to me as a surprise because I didn't really feel anything before I went to take the test. The first trimester was horrible to me cos I was vomitting anything I ate or drank. I didn't want to get out of bed at all and when I do I want to eat and even when I do get the food to eat the next minute I would be throwing up all I ate. I even had to ask a doctor if there was any medicine to take to stop the vomitting. Lol. But I thank God that my husband was there to support me all through. Most of the times he would be the one to clean up after throwing up. It was really bad.

Cravings yes I did have that especially for food I knew I wouldn't get with the snap of a finger but most times I got to eat some of them like my native 'owo' and 'starch' or banga soup. I really drank peppersoup as far as it was spicy.

And most of the times when I see people eating a particular food I would want to eat the same too like hotdogs.lol.

Fine there was a due date but I thought I was going to give birth 2 weeks before because I wanted her to come by then and we waited till the due date and it went by and I was overdue. When we went to see the midwife she recommended that a date should be given to us for Induction of Labour which we took to the hospital on getting there we were given a date that was Tuesday 13 July 2010.

Fingers crossed we patiently and anxiously waited for that date I wasnt myself any longer because I couldn't sleep even when I sleep on my left side that is when my baby would decide to come out and play and she would kick all through the night. I had backache, heartburn I just couldn't wait for the Induction date I was counting the hours, minutes and even the seconds. While waiting for them to induce me the doctor said that they have to carry out checks on the baby like her heartbeats and so on. There was a time her heartbeat dropped when the doctor came to check she said if it drops again a Ceasarian Section would be carried out. Her heartbeat came up strongly again when the doctor came back she said ok now we would do a last check before inducing and almost immediately her heartbeat just went off. That was when I got scared the doctor said straight to the theatre we are going to have a Ceasarian Section I must say that my heart was in my mouth when they were wheeling me into the theatre. They told my husband that he can't come in because they were going to give me general anesthetics right inside of me I said oh no and when I turned and looked into his face I saw panic.

But I was really impressed because of the level of encouragement I got from the doctors they were very professional and also witty. When we got to the theatre they checked again for her heartbeat this time it came on and I was like Praise God and they said they would only give me an epidural and then they allowed my husband to come in I could see the relief on his face he wore what looks to me like shower cap he really looked funny to me. Lol. He was very very strong for me he held my hands all through he kept on telling me everything would be fine. He saw how I was cut open and in less than 20mins our baby Sienna came out.

And she was handed to my husband who brought her to me and he told me that her cord was wrapped round her legs and that she was stressed. Immediately she was brought to me and laid on my chest my cutiepie just located my bosom and latched unto it. Natural instinct ye. I couldnt help but drop tears of joy when I held my daughter I looked at her with awe thinking to myself so she is mine. Her father was wonderful all through.

I would love to do this again not just having another baby but I would love to have a CS again to me its less stressful and not so painful too.Our baby girl is 10days old today and she is such a lovely and adorable girl. I can't wait to start teaching her girlie things.

Sissy my sister thanks oh and yes 3am feeding has been quite enjoyable getting used to it. Its not easy though especially if you feel sleepy. All in all Sienna has been a good girl she wakes up sometimes once at night for a feed or for changing of diapers and her daddy helps too God bless his heart

Think of the fact that with natural birth, no fears of any complication later in life for mother and child. Besides, the pain no matter how great is still temporary.

The bulk of the pain really does stop immediately the baby is out if there are no major tears etc. However, it might still feel slightly sore for a short period but the soreness is negligible in comparison to the pain of childbirth at least in my experiences and I've had 2 so far.

With my 2nd daughter, I couldn't hold her for sometime as I was too tired. My labour lasted about 2-3 hours and I got to hospital 20mins before I had her, at this time it was apparently too late to get any pain relief. Pushing her out had used up all my energy and I was shaking like a jellyfish for several hours after I had her. She was crying for a feed but I just couldn’t hold her. I certainly wouldn’t recommend natural childbirth.

I had my first baby threee months ago, and was it an experience! The pregnancy was very uneventful, and I didn't even realize i was in labour when the time came cos the contractions were mild. Two days later, i was still only 2cm dilated, so my doctor suggested inducing labour. I foolishly agreed because the lady in the bed next to mine had labour induced and had her baby within an hour.

Well what can I say? The pain was excruciating and 5hrs later i had only dilated 6cm. A second dose of pitocin was administered and i began screaming from the pain. Minutes later, my baby forced her way out. I was torn extensively in the womanly wall. Also got an episiotomy. But the joy of holding my daughter makes it all worth it.

This is an abridged version. The details will make anyone cringe. Remembering still has me cringing.

alot of people say so because somehow its the norm, whats is expected blah blah. it wouldnt be so nice or 'motherly' of you to say "i couldnt even look at her/him, or i didnt want to see her blah blah etc

however, some women do at least feel a relieve when they see their baby not for many though, the pain is still there, alive and painful and sight of the baby is no instant pain relieve

Hello everyone, My first pregnancy was a very "wonderful" experince. For almost half of my pregnancy period, i could not stand any smell but will throw up like no man's business. I never really changed in appearance like having bigger nose,  pimples e.tc. On the D day, initally the cramps was mild and still going about my own business  but when the contraction got stronger and at its peak i did not know when i removed all my clothes ahh! i tot the world had ended, thank God for my husband who was with me at the labour room encouraging me. I laboured for about 12hrs,  the mid-wives asked me if i would rather hold my knee by my self to push or they should tie my legs , i just shouted TIE, TIE ooo Jesuuuu. Finally when i made the last push  my lovely daughter came into the world stippling the scale 4.45kg! What a joy that filled my heart and my husband. Immediately all the pains disappeared, i was filled with joy and knowing the joy of a motherhood!

@naijababe, kpele o! I understand, had all the minuses of preggie too but still have 4. Its still a bit too early for you to make your mind about packing your maternity stuff for good. January pains definitely will still be too fresh to 4get but take heart in the fact some mothers CAN have it easy by choice yes by choice, I keep harping and sharing this story in this link to encourage mothers and mothers-to-be, go to the childbearing part:

Especially if the mother gives enough time spacing to allow her surgery 'wound' or scar heal properly before taking in again.

Ebony,

thats not entirely true. some women still deliver vaginally after CS aka VBAC. the problem however, is that its a very delicate thing due to many complications that may arise therefore many doctors are very reluctant to the idea and you know if any thing goes wrong its on their head.

its still possibly to deliver naturally after CS. a friend that delivered through CS before and was in labour waiting for another CS, the baby couldnt wait any longer she delivered naturally with no complications whatsoever.

the issue is that many women arent aware that they can still try vag[i]i[/i]nal birth after CS therefore dont even bother to access their risk/chance

My pregnancy was quite eventful. Had morning sickness and heartburn throughout(though sleepin on my left side helped ease it). My feet got swollen at d last trimester. I couldnt take cold things at home(mother in law and hubby were against it), so i made sure i had my fill of icecream anytime i went for antenatal visits. Looking back at my experience and d pain i went thru, i aint givin up. I still will definitely have more kids!

Guess am really one of the lucky ones, went through the whole nine months without a hitch (no spitting, no vomitting, no pains, just a craving for fast food and citrus fruits) except for one morning i woke up to see my left feet swollen (that was the worst thing that happened in the whole nine months) the doc said to flex it so the baby would shift since the position was the problem. Within 24 hours, my feet was normal and i even went on long journeys without he car since my husband was afraid i will faint at the wheel or something.

Labour was also like a text book, it felt just like menstrual cramp and i did not realise i was in labour till my husband complained that i was getting up too often (less than 30mins apart), left home around 4am since the hospital was quite far and delivered under an hour of arriving at the hospital. The doc could not believe i was a first timer as it was as if i planned to arrive just in time for delivery

The nurse had to burst the water out since i was fully dilated and it wasnt coming of its own volition.

My husband who had only witnessed a CS delivery was in shock for a while and it took my mum to get him moving

My boy is now 2 and continues to be a source of pride. I continue to use the nature of his delivery as a prayer point

When I was younger I witnessed a home delivery with just my aunties and my grand mum present. I was just a kid then but I can still recall the experience especially when I see the boy(now in the university). Omo dat day was not funny o, I heard the pregnant woman's (an aunt) scream in my sleep. When I woke up I was just staring at her as she rolled on the floor in pain while the other women tried to calm her and deliver the baby, I could not move. Omo I was scared. I had the memory in my head through the Christmas period.

Thumbs up to Women.

@Ronelle,my first pregnancy good up until the last 3 months. i was just getting bigger and bigger, i could hardly move. drank about 8 bottles oh big Eva bottled water, use the toilet every 20 minutes etc. i was later diagnosed of gestational diabetes, was admitted for about 2 weeks and was on insulin Thur out. it was really hell. eventually had a c.s at 8 months and my baby weight 4.7kg.

i really hope the second wont be like that. My baby is now 7 months and she is the most adorable thing you have ever seen.

C.S is not as bad as people make it sound. i am thankful i had it cos i don't think i would be able to go Thur the stress of labour and all. yes there is pain after all but with strong pain killers, i was up and about by the next day.and as for the scar. its not even visible.

The were careless at the health place you were using because by 24 weeks they should have suspected gestational diabetes and made you take the glucose test. This could have prevented a CS.

Thank God for safe delivery anyway.

Hey you can have home birth jare AND without any pain killers too. Dont mind all these ayinbo talk of epidurals. How did our grannies do it? I have had 4 kids without epidurals and survived it well too. Though if its a 1st, you may need a stitch or 2 for the expected episiotomy. If you can have an attending midwife with you at home, go ahead and have your baby at home.

my first preganacy was not planned so i was quite disraught wen i heard abt it.

Anyway,e don happen so i just went ahead wt it all.

I had apretty uneventful preganacy except for the vomiting.it was so horrible.

It was alway the feeling of nusaea that woke me up in the morning and sometimes i will throw up for up 4 times b4 going to work by 6 am.at point,it was like i wld vomit my intestines.

I remember one particular day on way to work in a public cab,i was throwing up so much that the cab driver stopped and asked me to go down.Anyway,i wasnt upset,i just was looking for a way of telling him to drop me off so that i will go to a corner and empty up.

On another occasion,i was sandwiched in btw two passengers wen the thing reared its ugly head.I prayed that cab will fly to my destination to avail.I tried my best to supress but couldnt.The vomit just filled my mouth and as i didnt want to the whole thing on my fellow passengers i quickly pushed it down my throat.yes,i swallowed my vomit.

As for the food craving,i neva cld stop eating roasted yam and african salad.Thank i was in naija so i had enof of that.at some point my mum was like ur baby is gonna be so strong at the rate u are swallowing that roasted yam.

in the last trimester,i had the kind of back pain that i didnt knew existed.my back ached so terribly,i couldnt sit,lie down or stand.i was always changing my postion.i walked and walked as i was told that will make things easy but baby refused to come out on the due date.i was 7 days over due and the doc said they will induce.

I protested but they insisted cos it was becoming dangerous for the baby,they said.

checked into the hospital at 8 pm on a monady.they gave so many drugs and equipments attached to my body,aww.

Each time i needed to use the bathroom, a nurse will come and push all those cupboard like some thing and of course the intravenous fluid watever wt me to the toilet.

it was like i was carrying a house.

at around 10 am in the morning the nurse compalined that i wasnt opening up.said i have only dilated 1 cm and that she will give anoda set of inducing medication and if nothing happens they will do CS.

she asked to give me pain medication but i refused.any way,she gave the drugs and that was wen i felt the real contraction.Ohhh,it was so painful.I cried,screamed,stood up,sat down,walked about to no avail.at this point,the doctor came and broke my water manually,hmm na palaver, i called the nurse to come and give the medication wc she did.I feel dizzy and asked her to lower the bed so i can sleep in btw contraction but

alas,the relief was so short.the contraction came again and i was shouting.the nurse kept telling me to calm down but i couldnt.i was screaming at the top of my voice

i called the nurse to come and give anoda dose opf pain medication but she said i cant have more of that so i had to suffer it.

at around 11.30 she checked and said i was open 4 cm.I asked how many more remained she said i had to open 10.My heart sank.i thought it might take a while for that to happen.Besides,my pain was so much that i coulnt just bear for much longer.after sometime she said i was open 10 cm and told me its time to push.

didnt really know wat to do but i did wat i knew.I asked if i am getting it right she said yes and encouraged me to kip on.

I gave 3- 4 more pushes and my girl made her debut into the world.the time was 1.07pm.

she weighed 8 lbs 12 oz.

my guy wasnt there.he had spent the night wt me at the hospital encouragiingme and all that but had to leave very early in the morning cos that was his 1st day on his 1st job in the US ,a job he has been seeking and praying for a long time

like most others,i had a big tear and the stitching was something else.cldnt sit for weeks and was scared to poo.i kept on passing foul smelling gas cos i wont poo.

In all honesty,i didnt feel anything wen i held my baby the first time,besides,the doctor was stitching me up and complained i was keeping myself in position for him.I had to give the baby to the nurse so that he can do that .

its been 7 months now and my girl has been such a joy and blessing to me.am so thankful to God

This term has been so commonly used and i want someone to help me with the meaning.'BOUNCING BABY'.

are babies like footballs that they call them bouncing.

That apart.I realy want to give it up to all mothers.I now truly appreciate my mum and my wife,

after reading thru all these postings.

Mothers are wonderful pple that needs to be properly nutured

and carefully handled like a crate of eggs.

Those animals that batter their wives are supposed to be

kept in zoos together with baboons and wild reptiles.

Even though I am a man,i wish i could help my wife in bearing the pain,but God that made it that way, is a perfect God

What more can i say than to pray for long life for all mothers, to see thier own grand children and great grand children too.AMEN

Congratulations and Good luck, you only have a few days to go now. Pray it goes well and you find labour easy but most importantly, you and baby (ies) are well. 3.78kgs isn't too big and it probably won't be growing any bigger in the last week.

I think morning sickness is worse than labour, at least with labour you know it's only for a few hours or perhaps 2 days if you are really unlucky but morning sickness that lasts weeks and weeks and you have no idea when it will end, if it does at all for the whole 9 months.

I'm pregnant with my first child, my EDD is 14th Feb (Val Day) and i pray the baby comes on that day,for the pregnancy it's wonderful to know a life is growing in you, so it keeps you growing though it not always easy.

Some days you feel strong enough to go mountain climbing and some days you can't even lift you leg.

I'll be back to tell you about the delivery experience, pray 4me as i go to have it easy (cos scan says my baby is already 3.78Kg bigger tan some born baby)

But i Trust in God for all to go well.
