The cervix does not open

Nadine Spreda explains: “On February 12, 2007 we found out that I was pregnant. My husband wasn’t home, but I called him right away. He didn’t want to believe it at first.”

We became aware of the pregnancy through my morning sickness . The pregnancy went smoothly except for circulation issues and weight gain . In the beginning I always told my husband that it was going to be a girl, which he didn’t want to believe at first. But after the appointment for detailed diagnostics, the doctor said that it will be a girl. We were really looking forward to our daughter. We didn’t have any problems at all with the name, since it was already fixed. Her name should be Theresa.

Off to the hospital: The cervix does not open

The planned date of birth was October 15, 2007. Then on October 14, 2007 at midnight I had slight contractions . At 2:00 a.m. they got stronger and stronger. At 2.30 a.m. I said that we had to go to the hospital because it was about to start. At 3:00 a.m. we arrived at the hospital. The midwife examined me in the delivery room and said that I had to go back to the ward. Because the cervix was just 1cm open. So we are then on station. My husband then had to go to work at half past six because there was no other way. Then my mom came to the hospital and took over from him.

The birth begins

Then at around 11 a.m. I got two suppositories because the contractions were there but the cervix would not open. At 12 noon came relief: “You can go to the delivery room, your cervix is ​​now 3 cm dilated.” I was in a lot of pain, but I was able to bear it because I knew that I would soon be holding a wonderful daughter in my arms. I got another injection and immediately had contractions. My daughter’s heart rate went down and I was afraid for my child. So everything had to be done quickly. They then performed an episiotomy on me and have a suction cupattached to my child’s head. She was there at 3:08 p.m., I was very proud, but she didn’t scream. That scared me a bit, the doctors then took my child away and then I heard them scream too. We were then in the delivery room for another three hours before we could go to the ward. It’s such a great feeling to be a mom, but I know it can be stressful.
