After nine months and five days of waiting, she finally decided to see her Mom, Dad and big sister Gabz. On the wee hour of 23 Sept., 2009 Adrienne Danielle decided to see the world.
At 3am, I woke up with a sudden gush of water coming out. I thought I was dreaming, but started to stand up and it was still running down my legs. I woke up my husband and told him that I guess I broke my water bag. Went to the bathroom and after a while it stops. Oh, I told him; "Was it my water bag or just my urine?" Hmmm he suddenly went back to bed to sleep. Huh? why is he sleeping? I called the hospital and asked them what to do. They told me to go to admission so they could check me since I was already five days overdue to make sure what is happening. So, I woke up my husband again and told him that we need to go to the hospital. By then, I started to feel the contractions, and he started to panic!
To make the story short, when they checked me at the hospital, I was four cm dilated and my water bag indeed broke. So they start the labor process and took Andi the whole day before she saw us. I gave birth to baby Andi at 4:50PM, who is 8 lbs. 20 1/2 inches long. I did not expect her to be that big, no wonder it took me 16 hours of long hard labor. But all of that was over, and the moment I hold her in my arms, I could not stop crying. My heart was bursting with happiness and unexplanable feelings.
Here she is :
