New Year, New Me? #Lol

I think it was the first week of January I decided to do something different with my hair. Since last year, Joshua has been bugging me to cut it. Yes. I guess he likes it better when I had my hair short. Not sure why, though, well maybe because the first time we met again a couple years back, my hair was short, so IDK, maybe? Just had to bring it up hahaha!

When I was at the salon, the hairdresser of course asked what I want to do with my hair. I showed her this...

And she was like, "are you sure? you know it is hard to have your hair that long again"  I thought about it and I told myself she was right, it took me I think almost 2 years to grow my then long hair. But what the hell, I want my short hair back. When the hairdresser cut it, all of the people in the salon were in shock and were staring at me. I think they're thinking I'm going through something, may pinagdadaanan ganon Hahaha! 

So from this...
This much has been cut...
To this...
I took the cut hair home because it was the longest my hair has ever been. Haha or maybe I just have attachment issues. Sometimes I miss my long hair, but mostly I was like whatever. The only con on having short hair is that kailangan nakaayos ako palagi, I mean when going out, I must wear makeup or at least an eyeliner or lipstick, because if not, I'll look like a boy. Hahahaha

I've been wanting to have a photoshoot for my little girl's 1st month but we're still lacking budget  this January, so I did it myself. Haha! I know it's not as good as those done in studios, and I'm just using an ordinary digicam, so... Here are some of it

Happy first month, baby!

Our little Maco

December 13th of 2014, I gave birth to a very cute baby girl, her name is Mariana Coraline Contreras Ibañez. We call her Maco. Why the name? Mariana came from the name of Joshua's mom which was Ma. Ana, and Coraline came from the book written by Neil Gaiman. Coraline was actually chosen by Joshua.  I was thinking of naming her Mariana Cossandra, I asked a few friends, they didn't like it, so... Joshua won. Mariana Coraline it is. I actually like it, I just don't want to agree with Joshua. HAHA. No ragrets. Lol (ragrets, because this)

Here are some photos of my little one.

Welcome to the world, my baby!! <3
Damn giving birth was hard and painful as... Ugh. But, after seeing  your baby, all of the pain were gone. Seriously. I cried when I saw my baby Maco, can't explain how happy I was. And yes, I also cried because I know the pain's gone already. Haha

Photo taken by his father. Haha
I love you, Maco <3

Hello! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I know I've been away waaay too long because I've been busy with my baby girl. :) First time mom here and clueless as... Yeah. Lol! Also, my laptop acted up and I can't blog from there, I can't even upload photos. Ugh.

Anyway, I just want to share my experience on giving birth last December 13, 2014 that I wrote a month ago already which I totally forgot. Lol. Need to fix my laptop asap!!!! Ugh.

12.11.14 (December 11, 2014)

I had a headache.
I felt contractions, but  not that strong. I remember my ob told me that one of the symptoms is headache, so I thought I was about to give birth. I also had some strong contractions last December 8th, but it only lasted for less than 30 minutes, so I didn't really mind it. Back to December 11th, I told Joshua regarding it (he was in the office at that time-it was 3 in the afternoon), he told me to observe first and txt my ob. I did. Ob's secretary, Ate Lilet (I'm not sure with her name hehe), asked me if my lower back was hurting, if I'm having contractions (honestly, I felt no pain during those contractions but my tummy's getting hard, and she told me that if my tummy's getting hard then it must be that I'm having contraction), and if my puson is hurting. My answer was three yes'. That night, we went to the hospital. Nope, still not giving birth. Yes, I was having contractions, but it was just mild. My headache was because my blood pressure got high. So, okay.

12.12.14 (December 12, 2014)

We attended Nanay Uping's, Joshua's grandmother's birthday. It was fun. We ate and sing all night. I didn't feel anything regarding giving birth, though they've all been telling me to give birth on that day so my baby and Nanay Uping would share the same birthday. 

12.13.14 (December 13, 2014)

3:30AM I woke up to pee. I was just about to stand I felt some fluid dripping, I thought I was already peeing. As I finished peeing, I felt some fluid dripping, and I had no idea what was that. When I stood up and saw it, there were blood. I woke Joshua up, and the fluid were pouring continuously. My bag of water broke already. He woke his sister, mom and dad regarding it. We rushed into the hospital. I guess I panicked I didn't even washed my face and brushed my teeth lol. DO NOT PANIC. 

4:15AM We arrived at the hospital. Straight to the pre-labor room. It was 4cm.

5:00AM I went inside the labor room. I was hurting but it was still bearable so I did not ask for the anesthesia yet.

7:00AM 5cm

8:00AM I was hurting already so they gave me my anesthesia already. I did not like it.

9:30AM My ob came. Checked on me. Told me that at she will be back at 12NN I will give birth already. It was 6cm already.

11:30AM I had some breathing exercises with the other doctors. It was 9cm already.

12:00AM My ob came back, she told us that it was still 9cm and she'll be back by 12:30.

12:30PM My ob came back. She told me it was and that we have to go to the delivery room already.

1:03PM Mariana Coraline Contreras Ibañez was born. :)
