The first sight of having a baby!
I love the theme for mommy moments this week, it’s about “Newborn Days”.
(Here are some of Ren’s pictures at the hospital)
I regret not having been able to take pictures of me and Ren at the hospital. I was so conscious of my look back then, so I asked Noel not to take pictures of me. Now, I envied other mommies who have pictures of their newborn child even though they look haggard and teary eyed. I had a labor a month before my actual due date so I kept on praying that Ren will be healthy, and thank God he is!
I gave birth to him normally, I did not even asked for any anesthesia to be used because I want to feel the pain just like my mother felt when I was born (she gave birth to me just in our house with a midwife only!). The truth is that I didn’t feel any pain while pushing Ren to come out from me, I just felt it when the doctors were already stitching the cut that they did (very detailed huh!) . His cry was music to my ears, and the first thing I checked when he came out was his genitals. I had my ultrasound when I was 5 months pregnant, and the Doctor said that it was a boy so we bought blue colored items for him. But when I was about to give birth I asked myself what if the Doctor is wrong and it was a girl, her things will all be blue. So, when I saw that he was a boy I had a deep breath of contentment.
(the first time Dad, he is so proud of his little boy)

I love smelling Ren’s breath, touching his soft skin and hugging him. Oh, I love being a mommy.. it has it’s own ups and downs but it’s all worth it.
