Hello unfazed, beautiful people. How was your week? Mine had been a nightmare. I had a pregnancy scare. Just to be clear, it was nothing but a scare. I am not pregnant and hope not to be until my uterus wilts into my old age...which is soon. For the past years or so, my period … Continue reading That long, nervous, stressful week
It's the last day of 2011 and as I try to look back to the things that happened these past 365 days, one incident stands out from the rest: the birth of our baby boy in October. Sixty plus days have passed since Benjamin was born and I haven't written his birth story. And I … Continue reading Benjamin’s Birth Story
It was a difficult delivery but my new son compensated me so much after by being such a good baby who lets me sleep for three hours straight and allows me long fifteen minute showers. He only cries when he is wet or hungry. Each pregnancy and child birth is truly different and I know … Continue reading Welcome our new angel, Benjamin Kazuki
I'm back. Back home, that is, since last Friday November 4 after ten days at the hospital. One more day there and I swear I'm going to have to be transferred to the psychiatric ward. There was nothing for me there but the cold walls I face every time I cry and having to put … Continue reading We’re home, at last
Hello. I am still in the hospital recovering from what would be the curious case of sorts. Actually, though I prefered, hoped and struggled for 45 hours of labor, I ended up having emergency c-section. That itself was a nightmare for a scaredy cat like me but then the aftermath was much more shocking. I … Continue reading Facing the unexpected
I am still alive. And have just been a mom the second time around!! Our new son was born on Friday, October 28, 2011 at 7:25 pm in one of the hospitals here in Dubai. He weighs 3,690 grams and is 52 cms long. He is healthy and as much as people say all newborns … Continue reading My son has arrived
It's been 15 hours since regular labor contractions came - after I've been given medication to induce labor. Induction is meant to speed up labor so honestly? I am so not expecting to be writing this blog post in the hospital, in between pain rest times. I expected to be cuddling a sweet smelling baby … Continue reading What’s wrong with my body?
I had my 39th week doctor's appointment yesterday (Oct. 25). Everything all right with the baby? Movements? Weight, blood pressure? To everything I answered yes and vitals normal. This is, thankfully, so far, an event-free textbook pregnancy. Until last week when I suddenly experienced this intense itching in my feet... I figured it must be … Continue reading Admitted!
I'm currently enjoying life as an SAHM (stay at home mom) for the moment, which will last for another 86 calendar days. Yay! (I am so shallow) I know how hard it must be to stay at home all the time as there are no dayoffs with household chores (I highly respect SAHM's) but I … Continue reading Being SAHM
Hello, sorry for the lack of posts despite just staying at home for already 4 days now since starting maternity leave. I am still struggling with the new routine of suddenly becoming a stay at home mom and trying to do everything all at once, thinking I don't have that much free time before the … Continue reading The waiting game
