Mommy Moments : New Born Days

mommy moments

Andrea came early... way early and at a very unexpected time. Can you imagine, I had my OB appointment Dec 10, 2007 at 11:00AM and my OB doesn't know that she is gonna come out at 4:30 that afternoon!

I am spared of hard labor. I only have 15-minute labor and Andrea came out through natural birth without even an epidural!

Andrea was rushed to the NICU so I never had a chance to hold her the moment she was born. I actually had to wait for few hours because of the NICU visiting hours.

The first few minutes of Andrea's life

After couple of hours, I was able to hold her

Can't stop looking at her... Visiting hours is only limited, so making the most of it

Happy dad! (SSShhhh he was more nervous than I am when I gave birth)

Peacefully sleeping.... with all the wires attached to her body

She developed jaundice after few days, so she has to be under jaundice treatment

She had infection so she has to be back inside the incubator with all the wires and IVs

The pictures above was Andrea's new born days. She was born 4lbs and 12 oz. Very tiny baby but she was strong & brave and surpass it all. It was one of the hardest months of our lives. She stayed in NICU for over a month. We never miss a day to visit her.

Pareho tayo sis all natural delivery. All my 3 kids were delivered without epidural. Pinipilit pa nga ako mga nurses na pumirma ng paperwork akala siguro nila magwawala ako in the middle of labor asking for an epidural hehehehe mas mabilis talaga manganak pag walang drugs.

I wished I undergo quick labor too. It took me a day before my eldest son came out, I even had emergency ceasarian.
It's good to know how our little angels surpassed trials during their birth.

Wow! I can imagine how hard it was for you guys to leave Andrea at the hospital for a month. Alexandra stayed at the hospital for few days due to jaundice and I cried every day, it's weird to come home without my baby. But I am so glad that everything is alright now for all our kids..
