Where: Manila Doctors Hospital
Age at birth: 36 weeks
Weight: 5.5 lbs
Height: 32 cm
We went to the hospital at 1.5cm. I didn’t want to go yet because i wanted to wait for the gap of my contractions to be shorter but I had bleeding already so Alvin almost dragged me to the hospital. I think he was super excited lang talaga!
Anyways, after 36 hourse, my cervix didn’t want to open anymore to 10cm. After being 9cm for an hour, my OB, Dra. Elena Gomez, talked to Alvin to tell him she had to do the cesarian procedure already because our daughter’s head was already coning. After doc talked to Alvin, she went back to the labor room and told her that it was okay daw and Alvin said to let me know that he’d still buy me a bag hehe.. (Alvin promised that if i give birth via normal delivery, he’d buy me a bag that i want)–> suhol for the pain haha!
In the delivery room, before i got groggy, i heard the phone ring. My anesthesiologist (whatever the spelling is!) answered the call. After she hung up, she told me (in a very loud voice), “Your husband called to make sure to tell us to make the cut a bikini cut!” Everybody in the room started laughing. My OB said “Iba talaga yang husband mo!” I smiled but that was the last thing that I remembered. I woke up because a nurse was carrying Anika so that i can breastfeed her. I never felt so much love for someone when I saw her. She was the prettiest thing i have ever seen!
She’s three weeks now. And I so lack sleep! I’ve never been this puyat ever in my whole life! She sleeps, drinks milk and poops a lot!
Here are some pictures of our little princess =)
