Everything is a Surprise

In his first day at the hospital

Being a first time mom everything was surprise to me and my husband, I was in labor pain for 3 weeks. Every other day I'd to ask my husband to bring me to the hospital. After 3 weeks of false alarms, my water broke so we rushed to the hospital.

My OBGYN, of course, give me a chance to do it naturally, I was on the monitor for about 17 hours pushing to get the baby out for more than 3 hours until the baby lost his breath and they have to rush me to Cesarean room. My baby boy came out at 8.14 pounds, very healthy, having a cesarean.

It really was so painful. The first night at home I thought am going to die the pain was so crazy. But thank God after a week I feel good and I can go to the kitchen and cook my own Asian food!

My cuts didn’t really heal until the 3rd month when my doctor gave me a visiting nurse to handle my cuts.

Now I’m going to have my second cesarean, this coming May 27th for my second baby boy while my oldest son was a year old yesterday (April 28th. :)

So am I prepared for this second c-section? Not really! I still want to have a natural birth but I know it is very impossible for me right now.

Your website is very helpful and I discovered a couple of great online stores. 'Cause I'm not a big reader, it is very nice that I can find the most important information through your website.

Thanks Heather! Your Milestone eBook is SO detailed and so correct. My son is doing all or most of the things and many are not mentioned in the usual books/sites. Great job and keep it up!

My baby refused all bottles until you showed me the MAM bottle. Thank you so much for the recommendation. I wouldn't have known about them if not for your website.
