Headline News

I have been MIA for a while now.... Well I am not a daily poster but this time I have news....


Our baby daughter R, was born last Wednesday Apr 23th at 2.10pm, through an emergency c-section, at 35 weeks and 4 days gestational age.

Like the doctors anticipated, she is a big girl, she weighed 2.820kg (6lb 3 oz) and measured 47cm (18.5in).

It was a really BIG BIG BIG SCARE, there was no warning at all, I just started bleeding like an open faucet, everything happened just too fast and thankfully we and the doctors were able to respond quickly.

It's 3AM and I don't have too much time to go into details but I will post the whole birth story as soon as I can.

For now, I am recovering extremely fast and R is in the NICU getting the treatment needed to help her lungs mature. She is my little fighter and has been doing an outstanding job!

Hang in there with your c-section recovery. I promise that it gets easier and your pain will lessen with each passing day.

You and your family continue to be in my thoughts and prayers as you adjust to life as a family of three.

Congrats again!!!
