The birth hurts

I thought that you couldn't feel anything with a PDA

At some point, however, the midwife said that we should go to the hospital because the child was not yet in the birth canal and had continued to turn its head to the side. We tried a few positions to make the head turn, but it didn't work. I was in great pain. It wasn't that I couldn't take it anymore, but somehow I felt that it wasn't good like that, that the pain shouldn't feel like that. The effectiveness of the contractions had also decreased. With a certain position there was also a point where I could no longer endure the pain. Then I thought that it would be good if we went to the hospital.

Then at the hospital they gave me a PDA. I knew what it was, but I didn't really deal with it. And now, for a short time, I also feared that they would somehow miss. But then I thought that it would be done very often in the hospital and that it would be standard and that it would be fine.

By then I was still in labor, but the gaps had widened. I was very tired. After they had put the PDA on me, the midwife said that I could rest a little, also sleep. I did that, only briefly, but I was able to relax a little. When I woke up, I went to the bathroom and I was able to turn from one side to the other. That was very difficult before.
