My Second birth story!!! Part 1

Wow what a different experience this second time around! 

Many mothers told me my second baby would be faster, but whoa!  I didn't expect this!

Let's begin with Thursday! The membrane sweep! 

My Doctor said I was 4cm dilated on Thursday when she did the membrane sweep. 

Friday I started to feel some light contractions. We went to the hospital in the afternoon to get checked out. Nothing changed, I was still 4cm. They told me to go home at relax! But my doctor did a second membrane sweep.

Little k was with grandma, so we decided to stay over my moms for the night just incase we had to leave to the hospital again. 

We ordered from our favorite italian restsurant in the city and had a big dinner and relaxed! 

I was feeling some very light contractions. Not painful at all, just a little uncomfortable. They were not consistent and I went to bed fine and woke up feeling fine too! 

So we headed home! 

Then the real fun began ha! 


We had lunch at 12pm

I posted this picture to facebook, saying no baby yet! False alarm! 

Little did I know what was coming!!!! 

1pm..... I just painted my nails, sitting at the table and had 1 very strong contraction... My husband flew off his seat and we began rushing to gather our things to go to the hospital! 

Kristian was on it too! Grabbing his bag and his shoes and he knew it was GO time!! Let's go mommy!!!

Ha! But I even ran upstairs to try and straighten my hair.. But to my surprise another contraction, 5 mins later and stronger than the last!!!

We ran to the car and made our way to the hospital!! ....

To be continued....

My big news!


Do you know now! 

Ha! Finally the secrets out! Boy was it hard to keep! 

I started to show right away! And started feeling pregnancy symptoms even before I missed my period. 

Like  increased sense of smell. Omg I was in tune with every scent/odor around me! 

I had a couple clues very early on. Like mood swings. Ha. I went from zero to 100 real quick. Tired tired tired! Way more exhausted now than I was with little k. 

Early cravings, I remember one day buying takeout and the man next to me bought a milkshake. I never buy or want milkshakes, but this time, my eyes were locked on it. Haha and I had a war in my head, get it, don't get it, just get it, don't get it! I walked out without it. Then couldn't stop thinking about it. I knew right then, I had to be pregnant! lol I sent the husband back out to get it, a chocolate and vanilla one haha! 

Since then my cravings are mostly for salty tangy foods. My emotions are off the wall. I'll cry if I step on a ant kinda emotions. Poor ant could have had a family. I'm mama bear to the extreme. Taking no BS from anyone or anything negative that comes our way. My family first that's my priority. My little boys happiness and well being drives all my decisions. 

Just this weekend I announced my pregnancy on Facebook. The amount of love we received was soo amazing. We love all our family and friends. Seeing them all genuinely happy for us is the best feeling. We are so blessed. 

Our little family is sooo excited! 
Little k is excited to be a big brother, he won't stop talking about it, and already asked to hold the baby. Ha! 

I'll start my weekly pregnancy update posts starting next week. Tracking belly growth and how I'm feeling! 

This picture was taken first week of January! Eep I'm bigger than that now! 

I'm already in maternity pants and skirts. We got 7 more months to go!  Due date expected Aug 22. :)
