🤱🏻We finally met!!!😍
I did my last Sh’Bam in our living room in the morning, planned on things we’re gonna do the next day (including my 39-week ultrasound) after your grandma arrives, and we went to Chicago to pick her up. On our way back, you were very active & kept moving. I know I’m not gonna feel comfortable anyway especially at this stage of pregnancy, but this unusual amount of kicking plus car ride really exhausted me. I fell asleep quickly after midnight when we got back home.
Wednesday 9/19.🌱 My water broke around 3:30 AM. We arrived hospital around 4:10, & contraction started about an hour later.
Everything seemed to happen so quick! The irregular contraction soon became regular, but I’ve lost count how frequent it happened cuz I was in a lot of pain. At 10 AM, I really couldn’t sustain the pain anymore & requested epidural, but ob was in surgery & anesthesiologist couldn’t come right away. It was the most painful one-hour wait in my life!!! ✨💖
For me, motherhood begins when you came to live inside me, but nothing feels more real than that moment you were placed on my chest.
🎂12:18 PM. Welcome to the world, Muimui! We finally met you! 💕
(p.s. that’s how I look the day before your arrival!)
