After watching Pinoy Icon Manny Pacquiao beaten Antonio Margarito on November 14, 2010 around 3:30PM, I’ve felt a gush of fluid came out from my private part. I rushed to the toilet thinking that I just want to relieve myself. I’ve checked my underwear and saw blood stain. I called my OB and told her my condition, she told me to go to the nearest hospital and admit myself. I tidied up, readied my things (I wasn’t able to prepare yet because I still have 2-4 weeks before my due), and hurried to the hospital. Around 5PM I was at Emergency Room of Mercy Community Hospital, they’ve checked my baby’s heartbeats, took my blood pressure, attached dextrose and transferred me to a private room.
I was not ready to give birth yet because I'm still on my 36th week and my expected due is still on December 9, 2010. But things just happened.
8:00PM - Doc Lila my OB, arrived and did an internal examination (IE) and told me that my cervix has not dilated yet. So we have to wait for labor pain to kick-in if not I had to be induced.
12:00MN – Labor finally kicks in. I felt the pain somewhere at my belly with 15-20 seconds duration every 5min interval. Sleepless hours had started.
3:00AM (November 15, 2010) – I felt the pain crawling from the belly part to my back waist. Nurses on duty from time to time came in to check my baby’s vital. I had another IE from the Resident Doctor, with cervix opening up to 3cm.
5:00AM – More pain. Hubby had to pat my back waist just to ease the pain. It helps a little though, but I still felt like crying and I’ve bounced left and right at my bed. Even though I really want to deliver normally not just because it’s cheaper compare to CS but because of the healing period afterwards, I told my husband that if I can’t bear the pain just let me deliver thru c-section no matter what.
5:45AM – Another visit from nurses on duty, this time I told them I felt like my waist is breaking, I can feel my baby moving downwards, looks like he wanted to push himself out. The resident doctor came in for another IE, this time I’m 6cm dilated.
6:45AM – I was transferred to labor room to prepare myself for the delivery. Hubby came in with me, supporting me all the way. Pain got worse every minute, I felt like I wanted to push more.
8:15AM – Doc Lila had arrived, another IE and she felt baby Javen’s head already at the cervix entrance, I was rushed to the delivery room then.
8:30AM and counting – At the delivery room, I had my first and second attempt but not so successful I’ve run out of breathe. On my 3rd attempt this time I took a very deep breath and pushed hard until I finally heard baby Javen’s first cry. Javen Xyrus came out and joined us in this wonderful world at 8:49AM, November 15, 2010.
After 8 hours and 49 minutes the drama of pain and hardship has finally ended. And no matter how painful it was, the hardship had turned into joy the moment I had our baby in my arms. I felt that everything that I have undergone is just like magic.
I was on a blog holiday again, being busy at work is not my excuse for my absence. This time I was busy attending to our new member of the family. I've given birth to a healthy little angel on November 15, 2010. Anyways more about that on my next post. (hope I can write about it soon...) This time let's do some girl talk.
Best corner to shop is somewhere we're girls love to fit every beautiful dress they see hanging on the ladies apparel section plus trying on some stylish accessories to go along with it. In my case, I love hanging around the ladies section but I usually picks up jeans and ladies tee shirts/blouses for my regular get-up and some slacks and ladies blouses to wear at work. Accessories? hmmm sometimes I pick some but usually I make my own accessories the usual bracelets and earrings using beads and crystals.
By January next year I need to go shopping again, this time hunting for new clothes, new slacks to pair with our new office uniform (shirt jacks) since my old clothes does not fit anymore after gaining so much weight during my pregnancy.
That's it Girlies. Thanks for dropping by... Have a Nice Day!
It's another Thursday, and I'm on work leave today. Woke up late because I need to rest a bit because of some discomforts. Anyways, I think I'm fine now so I'll do my post for GT today. Here's what I usually get on my trip to Beauty and Health Section;
- Ponds Flawless White Facial Foam
- Myra E Facial Moinsturizer
- Cream Silk Straight Conditioner
- Pantene Anti Dandruff Shampoo and Creamsilk Anti Dandruff Contioner (for hubby)
and Nizoral Antidundraff Shampoo.
Well, that's all I can remember at this moment, there are side picks as well from time to time.
Wow! My tummy seems to become heavier day by day. I'm on my 35th week now and our baby boy is running out of room inside my uterus, he'd gained approximately 3lbs after 2 weeks based on my OB's measurement last Saturday which makes him more or less 6 lbs as of today. Heavy indeed right?
I feel anxious and excited everyday waiting for the day he'll finally come out. I hope and always pray for a safe delivery.
Engineering's service driver dropped by at the apartment Saturday afternoon carrying with him seven pieces sweet pomelo directly from Davao City. My best friend Jefer asked him to send the said fruits for me. Thanks thanks mwah!
What is a Pomelo? Pomelo is a citrus fruit commonly found in Southeast Asia, it is also known as suha in the Philippines. Usually with pale green to yellow skin when ripe and white sweet flesh. But for Davao's grown pomelo it has pinkish very sweet juicy flesh.
Pomelo is said to be rich in vitamin C, potassium, protein, and carbohydrate, it is also a best source of fibre. When eaten regularly, it can reduce cholesterol in the blood, avoid heart disease and reduce fat in the body.
I'm alive again after more than two weeks of blog idle. There are so many activities that had happened the last 2 weeks but I wasn't able to find time to blog about it. Aside from that my main source of income which is my day job need more of my time now because I need to turn over my works to my colleague before going to a 2-month work leave that will start at the end of November.
Anyway, I decided to return in the blog world on a beautiful Thursday (I have less work now, wink*) so that I can join another conversation on Girl's Talk.
This month's topic is about shopping, and I love shopping (if only I have extra extra money). But for Today's discussion we'll talk about picking up something at the Grocery Aisle. Every weekend either Saturday or Sunday hubby and I does our grocery specifically at Gaisano Supermarket.We always have a cart full of groceries from detergent soap, fabric conditioner, shampoo, hair conditioner, toothpaste, body soap, tissue, canned goods, juices, soy sauce, vinegar, cooking oil to vegetables, meat, fish and a lot lot more. By next month our grocery cart will include baby stuffs like diapers and milk.
Well, that's my grocery list every weekend, sorry I wasn't able to take photos.
