I thought I can blog more now that I am taking my maternity leave, I thought it’s that easy but I was wrong. My time evolves in taking care of our newborn, of our eldest and doing the household chores 😉 It was somehow easy when my mother was here, she helped and was there for me when I delivered stayed in my in-laws house for almost two weeks. And now that she’s not here anymore, I kinda miss her.
But I am very thankful that my husband is now here with us, to help me with other chores and in JD’s schooling.
Okay – earlier than expected. It’s about me giving birth to Kiehl. I was expecting that I will deliver for about 38 or 39 weeks. That in the beginning of my maternity leave which is June 18, I will start practicing to properly breath so when contraction or labor comes, I will not experience any difficulty. That on the start of my ML, I will do exercise so I can give birth easily. But hey, none of these happened! Two days after my off from work – that was June 10, Friday and then June 11 of 11PM, I felt that our baby is coming and whew! That was the start of the unexpected. On June 12, I gave birth to Kiehl. It was really earlier than expected. Fortunately, I already had my vacation, fortunately, it was weekend and fortunately I did not experience much pain – not much labor pain. Thank you baby Kiehl for not making it hard, although I did not know how to properly push, I still made it! Thank God!
Albeit earlier than expected, I am very thankful and feel blessed that we are both safe and our baby is very healthy. Thank you all for your prayers!
We’re now two weeks over. More to go!
