I'm a Mommy!- Even More Pics...

But you won't find any mom jeans here...


Hola Chicas,

Lawd... there aren't even words! I'm physically and emotionally drained, but have fallen head over heels in love with someone I just met yesterday!

To make a very long story short, my birthing experience was not at all what I wanted or expected, but such is life. I went into labor on my own, stayed at home for a while to make some progress without intervention, and arrived at the birthing center only to learn that despite the hard and frequent contractions, I hadn't dilated much. They started me on Pitocin to move things along (which produced horrendous contractions without breaks in between-- I knew this ahead of time, along with the other side effects and really didn't want it). I was a total G though. With the help of hubby, my mother and my mother-in-law, I breathed through the contractions without tears, moaning or screams. But the pains became intensified after the breaking of my water and the introduction of Pitocin, so I requested an epidural. After the epi was administered I was able to rest-- I had already suffered through about 13 hours of unmedicated BACK labor! It's just as horrendous as women describe. It felt like charlie horses in my back.


At 8cm, I stopped dilating and my cervix actually began to swell. Apparently sister girl was facing the wrong direction, so while she was trying to work with me to make her grand entrance, my body just wouldn't allow it. Later, I'd also learn that she was an ounce shy of 8 pounds and 21 inches long! 8 pounds??!! Probably due to all the strawberry pancakes. Needless to say, they started talking C Section, which resulted in me balling my eyes out. After talking out the pros and cons and getting over the disappointment and feelings of failure, I agreed and 30 minutes later I was face to face with the little diva.

She was born on 8/29/2010 at 2:20 am. Unlike me at that age she has a head full of hair! She's my heart and I can't stop staring at her. We're doing great with breastfeeding and watching her and hubby together is truly remarkable. My recovery is going well and I feel okay.

Thanks ladies for the well wishes, donations, kind words and prayers. I read through your comments to the 'In Labor' post while in labor for motivation and to help keep me positive. You all played a bigger role than you'll ever know! So, to all of the CN.com honorary aunties, little miss Gia Nicole has arrived and she is ridiculously precious. I couldn't be happier or more excited.

Love you guys,
Nik

Congratualations! Although I don't know you personally, (even though I read your site like 2x/day, lol) I wish you and your husband the best. Being new parents is a challenging, yet rewarding experience. After a couple of days all the excitement might wear off and then reality sets in, that um okay, I can't give this baby back, lol. But remember to take the time to care for yourself so that you will be in a position to take care of your precious gift from God (she is so beautiful!). Take care, looking forward to all of the pics to come. Be Blessed.

My comment may get lost in a sea of hundreds of others. But I wanted you to know that I've been praying for you ever since I saw the "I'm in labour" blog. Congratulations to you and your family and God Bless you. I don't have any children yet, but as a word of advice, since you are recovering from surgery try to take all the rest that you can get. You won't be moving around too much right now, so sleep as much as you can. You'll know why later ;)

She looks precious. I think she looks more like you than you think. We'll see as she grows.

Congratulations on your miracle!!

* First comment ever on CN.com*

I just wanted to say "Congratulations on being a new mom." Even though I haven't entered motherhood, I want to wish you well. I know you will be an AWESOME MOM.
One of my greatest childhood memories, were the times that my mother and I shared while she did my hair. Often times, I would get frustrated with the tug and pull of my thick hair but would love the results. We would spend that time having "girl talks" about school, boys, etc. So, as your daughter gets older, you should do the same. Again, congrats and enjoy the wonderful moments with your beautiful baby.

My friend had an induced labor and it wasn't pretty but she endured. I'm glad to see that mommy and baby are happy & healthy. Born on August 29th. It's an awesome day for a birthday (my birthday as well). CONGRATS!!!!

Oh what a doll! Wow, she clearly spent that extra week growing that head of hair, lol. Really don't think Gia knows just what a mini celebrity she is right now haha, she looks like shes just chillin'!

Well done hun, just don't feel bad about C-section cos from a medical point of view I'm sure you're well aware that had you proceded its highly likely you and/or Gia would have suffered injury. The most important thing is you're both well. You just have to take it easy for a few weeks to heal up properly.

You and hubby done good ;)
