Porođaj

Dome, slatki dome | Home sweet home

Osvanula je i ta subota, kada su konačno rešili da nas puste kući. Oh, kako sam jedva čekala taj dan, prvi dani su mi brzo prolazili, ali taj poslednji nikako…Suprug i moja sestra su došli po mene i Davida i nestrpljivo čekali da se spremimo i da nas vode. Svi su se radovali našem dolasku, dobro Davidovom dolasku pre svega. Kući nas je raširenih ruku čekao deda, tj. moj svekar. Nemate pojma koliko sam bila srećna i koje olakšanje sam osetila kada smo stigli. Znala sam da je to naše gnezdo, da više nisam sama, da se neću susretati sa ledenim pogledima i komentarima sestara. Da budem iskrena, jesam malo strepela, prva beba, da li ću se snaći, kako je okupati, da li cu imati problema sa dojenjem. Ali, sreća pa je tu bila mama da mi pomogne, da savet, podeli svoje iskustvo. Suprug je uzeo slobodne dane na poslu, pa je svakog trenutka bio uz nas i delio te slatke trenutke, prinosio, odnosio, mazio. Tata je bio zadužen za doručak, mama za ručak, tako da sam bar što se toga tiče bila rasterećena. Patronažna sestra nas je posetila u ponedeljak, pokazala kako da obradim pupak, okupam bebu, pregledala mi grudi. Prva dva, tri dana Davida je kupala moja mama, a onda sam se i ja oslobodila i počela da ga kupam sa suprugom. Sve u svemu dobro sam se snašla. Čini mi se da pogled nismo sklanjali sa njega. Gledali smo ga kako spava, kako diše, kako sisa, gledali i topili od te slatkoće, gledali i divili produktu naše ljubavi.On je lepo ručkao i spavao, budili smo ga noću, po savetu sestre, na 3,4 sata, što mislim da je možda i greška jer smo mu tako i usadili naviku da nastavi kasnije da se sam budi. Jedno vreme se budio samo pred zoru za podoj, a kasnije je počeo sve češće da se budi. Imao je grčiće,koristili smo svašta nešto, ali mislim da su nam najviše pomogle Sab Simplex kapi, dodir koža na kožu i onaj silikonski meda ispunjen tečnošću što greje, kao termofor. Javljali su se uglavnom uveče u isto vreme.Grčići su počeli negde posle treće nedelje i trajali oko mesec dana. Ništa neizdržljivo…Bili smo i na prvoj kontroli, beban je fino napredovao i primio vakcinu koju je lepo podneo.

A ja, da li mi je bilo naporno, jesam li bila umorna?

Slagala bih kada bih rekla da nisam… Jesam bila sam neispavana, nije mi uvek bilo lako, zatezala je rana, nisam mogla lepo da sednem, konci mi nisu brzo ispali, krvarila sam, bila sam neispavana, hvatala me je panika i nervoza kada počnu napadi grčića, a ja nemoćna da mu pomognem, nisam uvek uspevala da ga uspavam, pa ga je često tata uspavljivao. Ali, onda se setim da sve to radim za moje malo čedo, koje je tek došlo na ovaj svet, ne zna još uvek šta ga je snašlo, kome takodje nije lako da se prilagodi na novo okruženje, koje je krhko i trebam mu samo ja. Sve zaboravim kada ga gledam kako halapljivo sisa istovremeno me gledajući onim toplim, zbunjenim pogledom punim ljubavi i zahvalnosti. Sve to brzo prođe… ZATO UŽIVAJTE, MAZITE SE, GRLITE I LJUBITE!


That Saturday also dawned, when they finally decided to let us go home.  Oh, as I could hardly wait for that day, the first days passed by quickly, but the last days by no means … My husband and my sister came for me and David and waited eagerly for us to get ready and guide us.  Everyone was looking forward to our arrival, well to David’s arrival above all else.  Grandparents were waiting for us at home with open arms.  my father-in-law.  You have no idea how happy I was and what a relief I felt when we arrived.  I knew it was our nest, that I was no longer alone, that I would not meet the icy glances and comments of the sisters.  To be honest, I was a little scared, first baby, whether I would manage, how to take a bath, whether I would have problems with breastfeeding.  But, luckily, my mom was there to help me share my experience with advice.  My husband took days off from work, so he was with us every moment, sharing those sweet moments, bringing, treating, pampering.  Dad was in charge of breakfast, Mom was in charge of lunch, so at least for that matter I was relieved.  The visiting nurse visited us on Monday, showed me how to process the navel, bathe the baby, examined my breasts.  For the first two or three days, David was bathed by my mother, and then I got free and started bathing him with my wife.  All in all I did well.  It seems to me we didn’t look away from him.  We watched him sleep, breathe, suck, watched and melted from that sweetness, watched and admired the product of our love.He had a nice lunch and slept, we woke him up at night, on the advice of his sister, for 3.4 hours, which I think  that it might be a mistake, because that’s how we instilled in him the habit of continuing to wake up later.  For a while, he woke up just before dawn for breastfeeding, and later he started waking up more and more often.  He had cramps, we used a lot of things, but I think what helped us most was Sab Simplex drops, a skin-to-skin touch and that silicone honey filled with warming liquid, like a thermophore.  They were reported mostly in the evening at the same time. The spasms started sometime after the third week and lasted about a month.  Nothing unbearable … We were at the first check too, the baby was making good progress and receiving the vaccine, which he tolerated.

And I, was it tiring, was I tired?

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t … I was sleepy, it wasn’t always easy for me, it wound tight, I couldn’t sit down nicely, my threads didn’t fall out quickly, I was bleeding, I was sleepy, I was panic and nervous  when the spasms began and I was unable to help him, I didn’t always manage to put him to sleep, so often Dad would put him to sleep.  But then I remember doing all this for my little boy, who just came into this world, doesn’t know yet what got him, who is also not easy to adapt to a new environment, which is fragile and I just need him  .  I forget everything when I watch him greedily suck at the same time looking at me with that warm, confused look full of love and gratitude.  It all passes quickly … SO ENJOY, CUDLE, HUG AND LOVE!
