Welcome to the World!

I Would like to introduce you to the newest addition to our growing family....
BRYCE GABRIEL C. LOPEZ, 5lbs 15 1/2oz & 20 inches long.

I gave birth last August 26, 2009, 1:14pm at Clark Memorial Hospital via normal delivery. My original due date was Sept 11, 2009, when I reached my 36th weeks, my OB scheduled me for an induction on Sept. 8, 2009 as per my request because I did not want to reach my 40th week...very much eager to give birth na!

I was really extra careful with my second pregnancy because I did not want to have another premature delivery again. I was on strictly diet from my 2nd trimester till I gave birth because I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I strictly followed the diet and blood sugar monitoring 4x/day. I missed eating dessert, summer pa naman! O well, better to be careful than to say sorry later! At least I did not gain a lot of weight this pregnancy ( my consolation for not eating sweets..yey!)

Aside from the gestational diabetes my 2nd pregnancy went very well. I had this feeling that on my 37th week I will give birth and oh boy I was right..talking about mother's instict huh!. At 3pm on August 26, my water bag broke, went to the hospital immediately. I was lucky because aside from Dr. Wright (my OB since my 1st pregnancy), Dr. Oliver Montoya, my anesthesiologist with Jeremy was on call that day...Thank God for that! My contractions/labor started around 7am and started pushing past 12pm. I promised myself I will do my best to have a perfect pushing this time ( I was terrible with Jeremy, o well that was my first time) and I did it! At 1:14pm Bryce was finally out, I was able to deliver another human being in this world.Thank God for a healthy & normal delivery.

We're officially a family of four. With 3 boys in the house ( including hubby), let the fun begin! Question is, are we going to have another one, a baby girl in the next 2 to 3 years? I'll pray for that. For the meantime, I'll enjoy my baby Bryce and Kuya Jeremy too.
