What I've Been Up To - Baby No. 2

.


Hello amigos!!!time really flies when your busy. I need to dust some cobwebs off this website. I have really missed you all, attending events and taking pictures of my personal style. I felt like writing a post and putting it up on the website a lot of times, but I didn't want to post once and then the next post will follow up 2 weeks later. I had to fully take care of business first before I could fully convince myself that I'm ready to get back to the blogging world that I love so much.
             A lot of things have happened since I've been MIA that I can't wait to share with you "happy face". One of the amazing things has happened was me new bundle of joy God gave me on the 7th of April *blushing*, I couldn't be anymore grateful for the new addition to my little family that keeps on growing.


I wasn't expecting her on that day at all. I woke up that morning feeling a little tired praying that my due date would arrive earlier so that I can stop having those annoying heartburn, sleepless nights and body pains.
When I was getting ready to head out with my little gang, I felt a little contraction. To my knowledge, I said to myself  "ooo it's just braxton hicks".

Braxton Hicks contractions, also known as prodromal labor or practice contractions, or false labor, are sporadic uterine contractions that sometimes start around six weeks into a pregnancy. However, they are not usually felt until the second trimester or third trimester of pregnancy.

I just gave a little expo to some first time expectant mums :).  This was the second time I was having the braxton hicks close to my due date, so I didn't think anything of it. On the way to the hospital, the contractions were getting closer, but it didn't really hurt for me to start panicking. As soon as we got to the hospital, I told the nurse that my contractions keep coming every 5 mins and it started on my way to the hospital. She told me to go into a room and wait for the doctor. When she came in to examine me, her face was in shock and told me I was 6cm gone. I was so shocked and yelled "whaaaatttt?", I mean, I wasn't ready to have the baby, I hadn't packed my hospital bag and my family members were not present as planned. I wasn't happy at all because at all. When my husband came in, he asked me if everything was okay with a worried look on his face. I just stared at him with little tears in my eyes and said "I am in labour, 6cm gone", his response was "you saaayyy?". Before I knew it, I was told to go to a waiting room, where they would wheel me out and take me into the theater, where I would deliver my baby. While I was waiting, my doctor and hubby kept on wondering why I didn't behave like I was going into labour. I was just on my phone texting my dad and sister, letting them know what was going on. 
After a few minutes, the doctor said I was 7cm apart and she would like to break my water. I was still in chill mode, I was like "cool, lets get this baby out of me". One my water broke, I almost screamed out loud, the pain was insane. I looked at my husband like "what the hell is this, what kind of pain is this?" Mehn it wasn't funny at all. But luckily for me, my labour only lasted an hr and my princess came out 3.5kg strong, healthy and beautiful. Her lips were so red and juicy that I wanted to kiss her so bad. Her dad could not let her go, he just kept staring at her and looked at me and said "well done babe". At the time, my sister and mother-in-law were present, I was so relieved and happy it was all over. I immediately forgot the pain I just went through. My doctor told me I am blessed because my labour was really fast and most women experience the pain I felt for up to 12 hrs and even more. I just replied "God-forbid, it will never be my portion. 
          20 minutes after I gave birth, I walked to my room and asked for Ice-cream, but instead I got pepper soup.

I was also visited by two of my aunties \ pastors in my church, they came to bless the baby and made sure I was okay. I felt at peace and was very grateful that they took time out of their busy schedules to visit us at the hospital. It was indeed a blessed and day that I would never forget. Today, she is 2 months old, so chubby and adorable "I just want to eat her up".


We are so blessed with the two beautiful girls that we have been given, we can't thank the Big Guy up there enough. My husband is just in awe whenever he sees his girls, he couldn't have asked for more.
I can't believe I'm a mother of two, It just started sinking in a month after she was born. 



Thank you all for the kind words on Instagram and patience, God bless and keep you. Muahh!!! Love you all.
