Prologue Done. The First Chapter Begins Now…

newbornOctober 19-20: After 9 months of waiting, our newest bundle of joy finally arrived! I was in active labor for approximately six hours. From 4am to around 9am, the contraction pain was totally bearable. We got into the hospital at 7am and was still able to smile through labor until 9:30. I was only 6cm dilated but Kenya was already trying to get out with each contraction (my uterus wasn’t that ready yet, haha!) Pain, pain, more pain, then I was out. Next thing I knew, a nurse was asking me if it was ok for me to breastfeed Kenya but all I wanted to do was sleep…

We were home Sunday afternoon. How I already missed our comfy bed…

October 21: We survived the first night of endless pooping! Kenya seemed to be up all night, sleeping continuously only at past 4am. I’m not feeling too tired and I hope I can retain my energy (especially the hubby who is officially in charge of poop cleaning.) Dad and Kenya are going back to the hospital this afternoon for her newborn screening and I will be catching up on my sleep…

    Mic, now you have a boy and a girl. Wonderful. I’m so happy for you and Don and of course for becoming a Kuya. I’m glad you and Kenya are in good health. Cheers.
