Today marks the 1st month of my second born. I cannot believe it has been a month since I gave birth!
Being pregnant the second time around has its advantages, expecting the worst and knowing soon after things will get better. I say same goes with giving birth. Especially that I underwent caesarian operation with Gabbie, I’ve already anticipated what will happen the second time around. The step by step process and of course the pain that comes with it.
Although everything went almost exactly the same, the feeling of giving birth on a different hospital was something my husband and I were excited to find out.
Sharing with you all some photos from the day I gave birth to my son. Because I was on scheduled CS at three in the afternoon, I had to fast from 12 midnight. That meant no food nor liquid, yes even water isn’t allowed. We arrived at SLMC- Global City at around eight in the morning. Admission was a breeze as the staff were very efficient. While waiting for me to get prepped I took the liberty of taking photos of our room.
Spacious suite that has a receiving area.
The hospital bed with a closet on the right side.
A desk that serves as an “office area” with a computer and printer to match.
Flat screen television with cable and a radio/CD player/ iPod dock.
Kitchen with built-in sink and pantry.
My mandatory mirror shot. Less than six hours before I give birth. Heehee, pagbigyan na!
So after the preparation, we went straight into the delivery room, had the necessary tools & equipments on standby, and I had my spinal shot of epidural. While everything and everyone’s set, my hubby and I were patiently waiting to hear the baby’s first cry as our doctors talked us throughout the procedure. Well, my husband actually saw the whole thing.
A few minutes after hubby took this photo…

Anyway, remember my post about a company that makes welcoming your baby extra special? Well, Baby Bash Ideas did just that as they decorated my hospital room. Check out the photos below.

Baby bssinet decor too.
The popular door decor that everyone who who passed by our room had to make a comment on how pretty it is!
And of course the name banner of our son.

If there’s one thing that I wasn’t familiar with, it would have to be breastfeeding. Although I did breastfeed Gabbie for a month and three months mixed fed her, we never had a successful latch. I tell you for something that’s natural as breastfeeding, getting there isn’t easy. I’ll share with you all my breastfeeding experience on another post.
I can’t believe it’s been a month since I took this photo of you a few hours after you were born. You, like any other newborn were too fragile yet peaceful-looking to not adore.
Now after a month, your face is now full of expression and you’ve definitely grown.
The pain and sleepless nights are definitely worth it.
Happy 1 month baby J.
I love you to the moon and back 🙂
