Linda Ejiofor recounts labour experience as son clocks 1
Actress Linda Ejiofor-Suleiman, has been reminiscing on labour experience as her son, Keon clocks one today.
In a long post on Instagram, the Tinsel star actress, who is married to fellow actor, Ibrahim Suleiman recounted the labour pains, how afraid she was but had to be strong for of her husband, and the feeling of relief which enveloped her, upon the arrival of the tiny tot.
She for God to continue to keep her ‘sunshine.’
She wrote: “I remember the day we found out that we were pregnant. It was the best day of my life. I remember telling your father and how he jumped up and hugged me, he can tell you his own side of the story. Then the process began. Ohhh the unforgettable process. We were happy that we had you. I remember the day before you were born, went for my antinatal as usual, coming back home, It was a bumpy ride.I was very uncomfortable throughout that day, just felt this pain in my pelvic area. I thought it was something that would eventually pass as usual( Braxton Hicks). But, wow. It lasted the whole night, and at 4am of the 9th i started crying. Not because of the pain but because I hadn’t slept, and I was so tired. All I wanted to do was just sleep. Even candy crush couldn’t keep me distracted. I tried helping your dad cut his hair because he had an impromptu shoot that morning, which was supposed to be his day off. It was, by the grace of God that I didn’t give him gorimakpa.😂😂😂
Anyway, I kept cringing and holding my breath and standing still and squeezing my hands or his. Whenever I felt the pain. At 7am Ibro sent a message to the doctor and told what had been going on, and that my pain is 7 over 10. And for me seven over 10 is like, 12, over 10 for other people (yep high threshold for pain). So doctor (God bless you Prof!) told me to come to the hospital immediately. I got to the hospital, and they started monitoring my contractions and everything .I thought, you know, it was going to be my usual checkup, seeing as the day before i was told you hadn’t descended yet, so i had like a week to go. Little did i know i was in labour through out that night. As soon as the Dr touched my tummy and carried out a detailed examination, she told me the baby was coming today. Everything after that went so fast, I was in shock, I didn’t have my hospital bag with me nothing. Luckily for me I went with my sister thank God.”
