And I’m back finally after being MIA for so long! As all moms know, life with a newborn can keep you extremely busy and that’s exactly how it’s been with this lil munchkin! My little princess arrived on the 26th February at 4AM. Quick but certainly not an easy delivery. So here’s what went down…
Went in for my scheduled 37 week check-up and lo and behold, after being examined by my doc, she informed me that I was already 3cm dilated! (For the entire week leading up to my appointment, I was experiencing contractions and immense pressure in the nether region LOL!) After being examined, doc hooked me up to the tacodynamometer (what a mouthful), to monitor my contractions and since they were still far apart, doc asked if I wanted to have a membrane sweep to get things going and of course I was all for it!!! (Had I known it would hurt that bad, I would have just waited it out…seriously!)
Once my membranes were SWEPT lolol….I was told to go home and get my things ready, as my doc advised I would most likely go into labor by the evening.
At 8.30PM contractions started becoming more regular and got stronger progressively, endured it till about 10.30PM, then told hubby to pack the car as we needed to get going! At this point my excitement was immense, “This is it”, was all I kept thinking!
Got to the hospital and my contractions slowed down, what a downer but thanks to modern medicine, I was hooked up to Pitocin IV and that got things going again and I mean going! (At this point it was nearly 12:30AM and I was just 4cm dilated)
After five minutes of pushing, little miss made her arrival at 4AM weighing 3.1 kilograms! The sound of her first cry was like music to our ears…not so melodious now when you up till the wee hours calming a very gassy baby lol!
Meet little miss Ilyana!
My princess is now 2 months and it hasn’t been an easy two months to say the least (which I will blog about shortly), however with all the trials and tribulations, eventually comes ease!
We are enjoying our newest addition immensely and big sister and brother are absolutely amazing with her…Thank God for my little helpers, don’t know what I’d do without them!
As for makeup and fashion, I’ve just been able to put myself together over weekends however during the week it’s my go to 5 minute face routine, which I will post pretty soon too!
Thanks for dropping by!
