October 7, 2008

It was my usual every week check up... I was gonna ask my doctor (Dr. Kaku this time) kung kailan talaga due ko coz supposed to be October 4 based on my last mentrual period. I thought another week na naman coz I don't feel any symptom yet. Then when he IE me, pinatawag nya sa nurse agad si Honey who`s waiting then outside... Akala ko kung ano na, my gosh bigla ako kinabahan...

He said that I have to be admitted na.. di na daw ako pauuwiin. May nakita yata sya water leaks "down there".. Upon hearing that, mixed emotions ako, excited and scared at the same time. Si honey full smile naman. That time, I didn`t feel any pain yet. Kaya I thought, swerte ko naman, baka di nako maglabor, agad na sya lalabas.


Pina-admit na nga ako, binihisan pa nga ako ng nurse =) Napaka-warm talaga ng staff and nurse sa hospital ko. Actually, maliit lang sya, 2 flloors, 10 private rooms... 1 dining room. Parang nasa house ka lang pero pang hotel ang service =)

Honey went home to get our things. My gosh, yung ni-ready ko lang, mga damit ni baby. Mga gamit ko lang daw dapat dalhin coz the hospital will provide for the baby`s stuff. Ang dami ko pa binalak dalhin sa hospital, di naman alam ni honey kung saan saan nakalagay mga things ko, and you know naman mga guys, tamad maghanap.


Sarap ng lunch ko, sinerve sa room ko... U know when you say hospital food, parang ayaw mo na kainin right. Pero iba talaga service ng maternity hospital ko. They really know patients' satisfaction. After ng lunch, na-feel ko na yung sinasabi nilang "my water bag has broken..." ... kaya pala pinampers ako ng makapal ng nurse kasi ang dami pala lalabas... not only once... soo warm and ang sarap ng feeling na may lumalabas na warm water from you.... Then nagsidatingan na mga visitors ko, family. Some said, agad daw sya lalabas kasi lumabas na tubig, worse daw pag blood... yung iba naman, warning nila ako, umpisa pa lang daw yan =(

Which is right, exactly 9pm, sumakit na tyan ko... Wala pa naman ako kasama coz di pwedi magstay ang family sa room, until 8pm lang mga visitors. My gosh every 3-5 mins sumasakit, pero yung sakit last about 1min. Di na ko nakatulog coz every time na nakakatulog ako, dun yung sobrang sakit pero bearable pa naman. Sabi nga ni sistah JL, enjoy ko lang ang labor of love... I thought, this is it na pero sabi ng nurse, di pa bumababa... Madaling araw na yun... Dinextrose na nila ako para daw magbaba sya, di ko gets ano yung sinasabi nila. Pero wala ako masabi service nila, ang bait and they encourage you talaga, parang kapamilya.


October 8

Akala ko before lunch ok na, kasi non stop yung sakit. Lalo pa sumakit nung mga 1pm na, as in tuloy tuloy na, di na every 5 mins. Di na ko nakakain ng lunch, sarap pa naman... Di ko na rin ma-enjoy yung labor of love sa sobrang sakit =) Naku pinahirapan talaga ko ni baby... Unforgettable experience talaga.


Our lil Bundle Of Joy, delivered at 7:31 pm of October 8, 2008

And yet most memorable naman nung lumabas na sya at 7:31 pm by my favorite Doctor Yamaguchi. All those hours of unbearable pains become the sweetest pain of my life. Dun ko na din na-appreciate sinasabi ni JL na labor of love. As in you'll forget lahat ng sakit naramdaman and nararamdaman mo. Tinatahi pa ni Doc yung ano ko pero di ko man na-fi-feel coz I was in cloud 9, overjoyed, while looking at them, my husband, the nurse and the baby...


memorable polaroid photo by the hospital (service)


Kainis nga lang yung mga no-ready ko na video cam and camera, di nadala ni honey sa Operating room sa sobrang panic.. naglowbat pa yung mga fone namin kaya konti lang na-captured =(

Sa mga friends ko na preggy din, enjoy nyo ang pregnancy nyo. When the time comes, don't be scared. All worth it. Wag sana ma-CS, after kasi yung sakit nun.


my first moment of breastfeeding


In a week, fully recovered na talaga ako. Super enjoy na pagiging mom... They all love her, kahit mga neighbors namin, kakatuwa. Sarap ng feeling, lalo na pag may OYUWAI kami natatanggap hehe... but of course, it would be greater if my loveones and friends in PI were here with me.

As of now, 3 weeks old na sya... Miss ko na yung first 2 weeks nya =). Always sleeping kasi and ang gaan nya. Ngayon medyo bumigat na and namumuyat na sya my godd...

We are greatly as overjoyed as like the other first time parents.



No words could really express how we felt the first time we knew I have life in my tummy, couldn`t wait to tell everybody then...


.... the first time we saw her thru ultrasound, she was like a tiny peanut then



.... the first time we felt her kicks, and her constant moving during my 2nd to 3rd trimester



.... the first time we saw her face thru 4D ultrasound on our 30th week.



.... the first time I felt my water bag has broken... thinking that "this is the beginning of my hardest and yet the sweetest pain of my life". I was in labor for 22 hours.



.... and the first time we heard her cry.



It`s been almost 2 weeks since I gave birth to Azumi, and yet I still get teary eyed whenever I think about the day I was admitted to the hospital until the day she was born. It was definitely the hardest and sweetest pain I have ever experienced, the most unforgettable and memorable moment of our life. Now, I really do believe in miracle, it was an unimaginable scene.



I cannot blog further the things happened during that time FOR NOW =) I`m starting to get emotional again =(..

.

Right now, my baby and my husband are sleeping. I`m just thankful that my husband is very supportive and responsible. We are a family now and I will do my best to be a good mom and a wife.



I`ll share more next time when I have a chance, coz you know, Im a all hands mom.



I would to thank everybody, my gurl friends, friends, loveones and even my online friends, my blogmates =) Thanks for your warm messages for me and my baby Azumi.



Salamat sa pag-welcome. I`m so touched...



here she is on her 8th day

Wow it`s October already... Time is so fast, kelan lang September pa lang. I was so excited then coz I thought we`ll gonna see our lil princess on the last week of September =(

Well it`s ok. Yesterday I had my weekly check up.. mataas pa daw kaya hindi pa time =( She weighs 3,251 grams according to Ultrasound while I`m 62.9 kilos now =) She`s so big. Normally, yan na ang weight ng mga newly born babies. I just hope na di ako ma-CS



Next check up, hopefully may progression... Coz it will be my 40 weeks? Ang gulo nga, i thought this week is my 40 weeks... Magulo din kasi yung last day of my last menstruation coz I was treating my period that time.

I`ll let you know.. Thanks to all those asking me kung nanganak na ko. Hehe, im so touched. Sabi ku kasi September, that`s what I thought also.

Kanina pala, I was watching Jhayelle`s bebe klara`s videos. She`s so cute and my baby was moving constantly, lalu na kapag naririnig nya iyak ni klara hahaha... FUSHIGI da ne... ang galing, it`s like she can hear na talaga. Parang she knows na baby ang umiiyak... (labas kana kasi Azumi)
