It turns out...

My baby decided not to wait for the scheduled c-section (March 21st). My waters broke on March 19th at 9 am and she was out some minutes before noon. Everything happened very fast because the doctors had to perform an emergency c-section. I don't mind at all that things turn out this way, because it felt very awkward to me that we had scheduled her birth. And March 19th is Father's Day, so she came as a present to my husband. A few days later, when the baby and I were already at home, he celebrated his birthday, so it was like double jackpot.

These first few days were very tiresome, as expected. She is an angel and sleeps 4 hours straight, I'm luck that way, but the constant phone calls and the guests visiting all the time and the fact that I'm unable to just relax (i'm always on full alert) took its toll. But now it's safe to say that we've found a routine, things are settling down and my husband and I finally had some quality time with our baby just us (and the dogs). As for my recovery, it's going way better than I had antecipated, I almost forget I had a surgery and that's actually not a very good idea, I tend to do more than I should around the house, instead of just resting a little bit. The thing is... I'm so sick of staying in bed all day hehehe

I now leave you with some pictures of our bundle of joy, and I much appreciate if you respect them and not use them for any means.

  2. She's adorable, and such a wonderful present for the entire family. Cherish each moment with her, because believe me, she will grow up so fast you'll wonder how time flew by so fast. My twin daughters turned 34 years old last Friday, and it seems like it was just last year that they were born.

  5. Awww...she's absolutely precious! She's perfect! Enjoy this time...Newborns are so wonderful! You can hold them while they sleep for hours and it's something you won't be able to do as she gets older. So enjoy it! Soak it all in and get your rest. Everything else in the world can wait! Congratulations!

  8. Congratulations on the arrival of your sweet baby girl! I'm so glad your waiting is finally over. I can remember the first days or couple of weeks when our eldest daughter was born and I got tired of all the visitors so I understand just how you feel. She is gorgeous! Enjoy these special first weeks of getting to know one another:)

  10. Olá!

    Tenho andado afastada da blogoland e fiquei muito contente por "conhecer" finalmente a tua menina. Muitos parabéns aos papás! Acho o dia 19 o dia perfeito, o papá deve estar todo orgulhoso e satisfeito, o primeiro dia do pai em grande estilo! :)
