Mommy Moments: Preggy Tales

Hello Mommies! It's Friday once again and let's share our preggy tales. I got pregnant with Chloe 9 months after I got married. I found myself lucky for I didn't experience morning sickness and I don't even crave any food (except when I attended a party that I expect them to serve us lechon, hehe).

But when I was six months pregnant, I got sick with Chicken Pox. My world turned upside side for a moment that I cried on the way to the hospital. Fortunately, I was on my second trimester that the doctor said the baby was safe. It would have been dangerous for 1st or last term of pregnancy.

I was 6months pregnant in here. Enjoying fresh air at Duka Bay after I quarantined myself at home when I had chicken pox.

And on July 18, 2003, I gave birth to Chloe Alexandra, 7.6 lbs, via C/S. I was hoping for a normal delivery but she was too big for my cervix to pass and my labor didn't progress. The pain was excruciating that I wasn't ashamed anymore to scream at the top of my lungs. Problem was, I only had 2-3 cm progress and my bag of water didn't even rupture. I had an emergency C/S and believe me when I say this, the pain was only 1/16th compared to my labor.
On my 2nd pregnancy, I promised myself I will not go on labor anymore. My mind was fixed to have my second baby delivered via C/S. It was expensive but I don't want to have traumatic experience anymore. I still didn't have any morning sickness, no craving but my back was painful. And on my 5th month, I had spotting and when I had an ultrasound, it was found out I had placenta previa marginalis. I was advised on strict bed rest with bathroom privileges. Luckily, when the baby turned her position on the 7th month, I was safe but still took extra precaution.

I gave birth to Zoe Ysabella, 6.9 lbs, on July 12, 2010 via C/S. I've experienced the pain this time especially when the pain reliever started to wear off. My feet swelled few days after I gave birth that I was given lasix to take by my OB Gyne.

But despite all these uncomfortable experiences, I was very happy to see my 2 angels especially when I held them in my arms. I was thankful that both my girls were healthy, normal and safe and that was all I prayed for. Anything to share? Join us at
