Noemi Alexa is here

Postby DivineLotus » Apr 15, 2011 8:12 pm

Hello ladies,

Im gonna write it short but its been an ordeal.

Finally Noemi Alexa is here, born 4/11/11. On 4/9 i was having contractions. The next morning my belly was hard all the time so we went to L&D. I was 2 cm dilated and having contractions on the monitor. Pitocin was given and after 1 day i only dilated 4cm. I was in such pain so asked for an Epi. The next day i finaly rested and was dilating better. On monday 5am i woke up and was 9cm :shock: . Started to push for 1 hour and had little vacume assistance, then came out to the world.

It has been the most roller coster, amazing expirience of my life and never knew i can have a living thing inside me. Im shocked to say the least. Im a mom. It feels strange also having her outside insted of in. The first days i actually wanted her to back in so she can be protected better. Im very happy and cry the tears of joy when i see her cuz shes amazing.

Everyone here has been a God send and you ladies are the strongest woman i had the privilege to meet. Thank you for all your kind words, wisdom, expirience, patience and for being there all these months.

To all who are going threw this now. I was their too and couldnt wait to step up the ladder. You will also and it will be wonderful.

I forgot to say, I LOVE her name. It's so pretty. I'm not normally drawn in by girl names, but Noemi is just so lovely.

wow, she is so beautiful! I love the hair and the name = ) I have a question = at what digestion was she born? I am so impatient now because I just want to see my baby, but I remember you were a week at least ahead of me?
