Hello, hello! It's been a while, but guess what?! Gavin is finally here! 
I was induced the 22nd around 6:30pm and delivered my lil G the 23rd at 8:55pm. 
 I went in at only 2cm. I really was hopeless. I was so sure I was gonna have C-section. I was terrified. Doctor kept checking me and nothing was really happening. But OMG when the Pitocin kicked in, I wanted to die. DIE. It was extremely painful. I don't think I have ever cried that much. Of course I immediately requested the Epidural.
It took about 15 minutes to kick in, but when It did, I felt immediate relief. I was able to relax and fall asleep.  Doctor then came in to wake me up to check me. Once again I was hopeless, but then I hear him say "okay she's ready she's 10cm plus 1, this baby is ready to come out" I cried of joy because I knew I was about to have my baby boy in my arms. I just looked into Kevin's eyes and held his hand while my mom held one of my legs up (it was numbed). 

I remember Kevin saying, "I can see his head! He has hair!" And I was in pain but happy that it was getting closer and well, it took me exactly 25 minutes to deliver my baby. He was placed in my arms. He was so plumped and so clean. I was a crying mess. I am so blessed. I have the perfect man in my life and now my perfect little boy. I look at him and I can't believe he's mine. I just can't get enough of him.

So how am I doing now? Well, you know how people say "get your rest while you can because once the baby comes he'll keep you up all night" For me, that's a negative. Gavin has been great. He is such a good boy. What's been keeping me up all night is the pain. Yep PAIN. It continues. I'm about to get TMI on you so if you don't like it, peace out!

During delivery I teared and had to get stitches. I also got some cuts on my labia. It has made me miserable. I hate peeing. It burns so bad. I have cried pretty much everyday. Hurts to sit and walk. I CANNOT wait to feel good again. Until then I'll be on my pain killers and enjoying my precious Gavin.
So there you have it. My Baby story. 

I always hear everyone talk about the great experience they had, but they never talk about the aftermath. 
 The loves of my life.

xo, Delmy

  11. Hello Delmy,
    Congratulations on your bundle of joy. I'm sorry your are in pain. I have taken the time to google the topic for you.There are a few options that may help. This is from: http://www.healthline.com/health/pregnancy/treatment-vaginal-cervical-lacerations

    The wound should be kept clean and dry to avoid infection. Frequent sitz baths (soaking the area of the wound in a small amount of warm water for about 20 minutes several times a day) can help keep the area clean. The wound should also be cleaned after a bowel movement or after urination; this can be accomplished with a spray bottle and warm water. A spray bottle may also be used during urination to decrease the pain that occurs when urine comes in contact with the wound. After the site has been sprayed or soaked, it should be dried by gently blotting with tissue paper (or a hair dryer can be used to dry the area without the irritation of abrasive paper).

  18. Congratulations! Babies are such joys! I gave birth 7 weeks ago and it's true no one talks about after the birth. I was a little sore and still walked like I was pregnant. The one thing that happened to me was the I bleed a lot afterwards. I mean A LOT! I know you're probablyl it even thinking about this right now but take it slow when you and your husband decide to be intimate. We were excited after 6 weeks and we rushed into it. It was not a great experience. I think it's good that you are shining light on the after birth. Good luck on your recovery! Rest up!

  19. Congrats on the baby boy! From what I can tell, he looks like you! As far as pain when urinating is concerned, you may want to put vaseline on the affected areas and or pee in a cup while you're on the toilet so the urine doesn't touch the scars. If you hold the cup right at your urethra (not your vaginal hole) it shouldn't burn.

  20. Delmy,

    I just want to tell you how much I enjoy your page. I'm so happy for you and Kevin. May The Father give you both all of the blessings that he has for your family. Gavin is a precious jewel. I've followed you through out your pregnancy, and he will soon realize how special his parents are. God bless you, your husband, and your sweet precious baby boy!!!

  23. Thank you for sharing your story. A lot of women don't talk about their experience and I honestly thought I knew what pregnancy and giving birth might be like because my friends have kids but now I have a CLEARER idea of what to expect. Wishing you and your family health, rest and lots of love.

  33. I have read your blog for about a year now. You have the makings of a great mama.

    I made this sitz bath mixture for my sister when she had a perineal tear it helped and soothed her pain immediately. Maybe someone can take the time to get the herbs for you too.

  37. Congratulations !
    and also THANK YOU, thank you for sharing the story as it is without making it a perfect fairy tale, so many newly moms hush the painful part and sum it all up to "an amazing experience" as if it's a shameful thing to say it hurts like hell ! it's like they want us non-mothers to go unprepared to the delivery room and when they'll come visit us after the job is done, they'll be like "ahah got ya!".

    Wish you the best in this whole new adventure and I hope you'll feel better soon

    take care

  43. Firstly congrats Delmy he is precious. I also tore when I delivered and I wondered if your hospital gave you a SITS bath. You can get one from the pharmacy if not. Put warm water in the sits bath and place it over your toilet you can also get a squeeze bottle and put warm water in that and squeeze the water over your vagina when you have to pee to alleviate the pain. It will work wonders for you girl trust me. Also raw natural honey is a great way to heal your tears just get a jar from a natural food store and put some on your vagina you will be healed up in no time at all. Take care

  44. Congrats for the baby. He is so beautiful.

    I had always said I would like to have a baby by natural birth. For me having a baby by C-section seems a bit unnatural. I have never considered the fact that birth can damage downstairs department.

    No one talks about that subject when they talk about giving birth. Thanks now I know what to expect when expecting.

    I hope you recover soon and good in this new stage of your life.

    P.S You have show me that pregnancy can be also stylish

  54. I had pretty much the same experience as you although after I gave birth I wasn't in so much pain but I did tear and had to get stitches too. Don't listen to everyone else newborns sleep a lot and I breastfed my childso it was really easy to put them back to sleep my son just turned 1 the other day and I only breast feed at night now but I'm starting to ween him. It hasn't been so bad I wish you nothing but the best and enjoy every single moment it goes by so fast. Hes adorable.

  55. Congrats on your beautiful baby!! I gave birth to my baby girl exactly 1 month ago and I definitely feel your pain, literally!! I had an episiotomy and even though my stitches are dissolved I am still in so much pain. Fortunately I have one relief when I sit down on cushion lol but walking and standing is another story. I can't wait for the pain to go away. I wish someone. Told me how painful it would be after the fact lol Hopefully it goes away VERY soon.
