Weekly Writing Challenge: Threes

I came across this blog on weekly writing challenges by TheDailyPost which I have found to be quite intriguing.

 My eyes surf the ceiling while I anxiously wait for the doctor as she examines me.

“The cervix has dilated but it’s not time”, the doctor tells to my husband as she left.

A sudden surge of contraction rocks my body violently and I cried out involuntarily.

I felt the room was closing on me and felt a pang of terror to the untraveled path of labour. I have heard so many stories of how painful it is and how labour pain can last for hours.

I guess my husband felt my fear; he gently took my hand and slowly caressed my head, whispering that everything will be fine.

The contractions immediately came on me like a cold wave, literally taking my breath away. I felt this one was different and I frantically look towards my husband and screamed “I want EPIDURAL !!!”

Everything else was a blur, until I heard a feeble cry.

As soon as I laid my eyes on the little one, I realized that all those hours of labour pain was worth every second.

Happy writing !!
