40 weeks - baby is here!


Hello everyone! I'm happy to announce that my baby is here! She was born on April 17th morning, all healthy. It was a day before the due date, and the delivery took 12 hours...I will share the birth story sometime when I'm more settled down. We stayed at the hospital for 3 nights after she was born, and I decided to leave one day early. I felt like I had enough of hospital life, and I'm much happier to be back home, with my husband:) Thank you all for prayers and thoughts!

Thank you for those of you who gave me advice on what to bring to the hospital - it was really really helpful! Lots of drinks, lip balm, and socks were my friends while I was suffering with contraction pain.

Now I feel a bit sentimental that my pregnancy is over (you can read my week-by-week journey here), but I'm thinking of continuing the series as mama series on Thursdays perhaps? Any suggestions?


P.S. Hope you enjoyed the guest posts by Anna and Nette! More guest posts coming in the next few weeks...:)

Congratulations! i was so thrilled when i got a response from u in twitter that ur holding ur baby.

Ai said...

don't forget teh breastfeeding tips if your breast tend to gorge wrap it with cabbage leaves or just cold ice pack to the lump area and of course let your baby drink your milk, not pumping it too much. the more will gorge. I am successful in breastfeeding with my little ones so just want to share. good to know the lipbalm, socks and water really helps u. it was my saver when i had my labor too. hugs & kisses from here xxxooo
