Mommy Moments: Preggy Tales

5 hours after this picture was taken, my Baby Celine was born...

 I forgot to scan the big one, I just pictured this one from my wallet..

One of the hardest journeys yet the most fulfilling in my life is my pregnancy to my first born baby Celine. From the time I showed those two purple lines to my hubby up to the time I gave birth, my hubby was very supportive, thoughtful, and patient of my mood swings. Believe it or not, Celine was the product of our first time together- that’s why I know exactly the day she was conceived.
I considered the first trimester the most challenging one since I am still adjusting with the changes undergoing inside my body. I have been feeling physically exhausted and I even had a two-week bed rest because of mild cramps and spotting. I had taken prenatal vitamins, drank milk with folic acid and pampered myself with nutritious foods, vegetables and fruits.  
I am thankful that for the second and third trimester, I did not encounter any complications in my pregnancy.
On November 7, 2009, early morning, I dreamt that I already given birth to a baby girl. I told my hubby when I woke up to prepare the nursery bag since I have a strong feeling that our baby is coming. At twelve in the afternoon, I felt like my womb is contracting every 5 minutes. My OB-Gyne advised me to expect the baby as early as November 9, 2009 as my cervix is already soft. .Inspite of the labor pains, we were able to go to SM Great Image for a pictorial with my hubby. My husband brought me to the hospital at 4:45pm when the pain became more intense. I was dilated at 2cm when we arrived at the hospital. The OB was surprised when she found out that the baby was coming since I was already dilated at 8cm at 6pm. With only one push, Celine finally came out at 6:43pm. No words can explain how happy I am the first time I saw my baby... I took her small hands and held her tight.. very happy of the wonderful gift God has given me.. and a little bit nervous thinking I am already a mother to a very cute baby girl.
