I gave birth recently to another one of our miracle. yup, i do consider my children our miracle because I believe we see and feel miracles everyday, we just have to acknowledge it and claim it. So last July 16, 2013, 2 days before my birthday I gave birth to a healthy baby girl. But before we go to that let's have a flash back of the roller coaster ride I had during my pregnancy.
During my 1st month, we discovered that I had a bleeding outside my placenta and that I was advised to be on bed rest for a month. Yeah, I had to be on bed rest during Christmas and New Year. Not to mention the morning, afternoon, mid afternoon,night and midnight sickness that I had hehehe. It was something new for me because I did not experience those things while I was pregnant with Thirdy. When my bed-rest was lifted because the bleeding was finally gone (Thank God!) I was doing fine and was praying very hard that i could go on with my first trimester without any more hassles. When I started my 2nd trimester (during my 5th month) another trial headed along our way. My amniotic fluid was below normal (geeezz) so I was ordered to be on bed rest again and prescribed to drink 4 LITERS of water everyday for a week. After a week, thank God its all OK now. After that ordeal that I went through I was now preparing myself for my 3rd trimester. During my last few weeks of pregnancy, i had to take more ultrasound and some lab tests. You see, my birth plan was to do a normal delivery for this pregnancy. and it was only possible if the baby is small. I had to control her weight up to 6 lbs only. Seeing this because i had a C section with Thirdy because he was in a breech position. A week before I my due date we found out that my baby grew up to 9.1 lbs. I was so shocked. She grew very fast as only 2 weeks ago she was only 6 lbs. so we suddenly had to change our birth plan.
On July 14, 2013, that was a Sunday, i noticed that there were rashes on my belly. My husband and I were very alarmed since we associated it with dengue. So the following day, we went to the hospital to have my blood checked and they found out that my platelet was decreasing. The next day I was supposed to go to the hospital to have my platelet checked again, but before we went to the hospital my mom and I went to church since that day was the feast day of Mt. Carmel. During the mass I realized that my back was aching. that I know is the first sign of true labor. When we went to the hospital I was already 4cm. dilated. We tried to have a normal delivery again, yes because i forgot to make my admitting slip be edited by my OB that I would be a scheduled C Section. So I had labor and I dilated up to 7cm. but for 3 hours nothing happened. my dilation stopped from there and my OB advised my husband and my mother that she's going to do a stat CS now because she's scared that my previous stitches might open up and that I was too tired already.
And there I go on another C-section, but I wouldn't trade any other thing for my daughter. I would go through all the pain in he world just to see her safe with us.
There you go guys! meet our daughter Giliana Joan Karmelle Salise. Our Miracle.
