MY BABY STORY

8.27.2013

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.

TODAY IS THE DAY

8.22.2013


The day has come. Today I will be induced since this little guy didn't want to come out on his own. 
I'm already exhausted thinking about it. I'm pretty sure this is going to be a long process since I am only 2cm. Really hoping he cooperates and I don't end up needing a C-section. Then again at this point I just want him here. 

You guys should see the  outfits I have ready for him! So cute! Well, have to go and get ready. I leave you with my pregnancy style. I sure will miss dressing up my bump, but that's about it. 

So here's a question for you. Have you been induced? What was your experience like?

Follow me on Instagram for updates on my little G!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

FLORAL ELEPHANT

8.14.2013

 Wearing: Elephant tee | American Apparel skirt (Asos skirt) | Acne sunnies | Vans sneaks

So here I am, one day before my due date and still nada, just a bunch of braxton hicks and mild cramps. Honestly I don't even know If I'm having contractions or not. People say you feel them on your back, but I have been feeling them above and below my belly button. So I'm not quite sure.

Anyway, wore this to take a walk with K hoping it would help, instead I ended up with shortness of breath and a lot more pain.  But you know what? I am happy, because I know I'm close to holding Gavin. So I'll deal with whatever I have to deal with.
Stay tuned!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

8.13.2013


I love this outfit. Perfect to run errands during the day and dinner and cocktails at night.  No need to for high heels to have a little fun.
The more I look at these Valentinos, the more I want them. Le sigh.

NARS lipstick (One of my faves)

WEARING IT AGAIN

8.12.2013

 Wearing: Free people dress | Tusk bag ( DVF bag here and Asos bag here)

 Wore this dress when I was about 12 weeks pregnant in Florida. (check out the post here) And now I am wearing it again. One, because I love it and two because I am running out of clothes to wear! My belly is so big and I can barely find anything that fits. People keep telling me that I am going to miss my belly, but hell to the no, I am not!  If this offends any pregnant women, my apologies. But I am over it. I just want my baby in my arms. August 15th is my due date, so hopefully I'll get lucky by then. Wish me luck!

xo, Delmy
