I posted an entry on the first day of November and it was about the pain of waiting. In that post, I said that the next post would be about my new baby; but my last entry was about Typhoon Yolanda. It was very alarming and I thought, it”s worth sharing.
Anyway, it has been six months since we had our new baby. I remember, I was talking to my baby when she was still inside my tummy. I beg for her not to come out on October 31, November 01, or November 02. My daughter’s obedient even inside my tummy so she came out on November 03.
It was a Sunday. I woke up at 6 in the morning and started my walking routine. While walking, I felt the pain in my abdomen. I knew it was different. but I never wanted to assume. My mother usually joins us to church, but that time she decided to go with my mother in law.
They left, but I never told them that I am already feeling something. After an hour of walking, I went inside the house and go straight to the bathroom. It was then that I saw the stain. I immediately told my husband that “it might be the day”. He asked me if we’re still going to church. When I had Seandy and Andy, the pain started early in the morning too, but they both went out at night. I thought, this will be just like the “old times”, so I told him we’re still going to church.
Around, 8:00 in the morning, I went back to the bathroom to pee and I already saw blood. It was then, that we decided to go the hospital.
I was in the ER from 9:30 until 10:30. The ER doctor check on me and said that I am 5cm but she couldn’t touch the head. When my OB arrived, she also checked on me and said the same thing. They had to do an “x-ray” to check what’s happening. The X-ray showed that baby couldn’t move because her head’s bumping on my pelvic bone. My OB said we need to wait. If she wouldn’t move then, I’ll have CS. Thank God she moved.
I was transferred to the delivery room at around 1pm and the baby got out at around 2:45 in the afternoon.
So finally, after the long and “exhausting” wait, we had our new baby.
This was Miesha Dominique aka “Baby Avi” when she was born.
This is Miesha now at six months.
