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.

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 Iba├▒ez was born. :)
