Hiii!! Sorry for the brief hiatus. I was busy giving birth and caring for a newborn baby, lol!!!
So yes, the baby is finally here!!! It’s a boy and Mr S and I named him Dylan Gabriel Wai-Zhun Soong. He weighed a decent 3.32kg when he was born, hahaha! No wonder I felt like my tummy was about to explode towards the end of my pregnancy. And those stretch marks…!! 😱 I only had very few when I had Naomi but when I was carrying Dylan, they just popped up every week in my last trimester. Oh well, they are my proud battle scars!
One thing you get a lot when people know you’re pregnant with your second one is that they’ll tell you it’ll be a lot easier with the second one. Some make it sound like the baby will slide out of you just like that!
So, I went into the birthing suite with the expectation that it’s gonna be so much easier this time. But goshhhh, was I wrong! I certainly dilated a lot faster but still, the baby wasn’t in a good position so we waited a good 12 hours since I went into the hospital before he finally came out and greeted me with his sepet eyes, lol!!! Also went through the whole epidural and suction ordeal ‘cos he didn’t turn and wasn’t coming down the birth canal as smoothly as expected.
Anyway, the important thing is that he’s out, lol! And he’s a healthy baby! That’s all that matters.
Welcome, little one!!!
Naomi was quite pleased to meet didi for the very first time.
Dylan and I were stuck in the hospital for extra three days this time as the baby had jaundice and his bilirubin levels didn’t go down as quickly as expected so he had to undergo phototherapy. 😣 The wait to be discharged was horrible each day. We were let down again and again and poor bubba had to undergo the heel prick test each day! He also didn’t bleed easily so they had to really squeeze the blood out of him for the tests. It was so heartbreaking to watch 💔
Now that he’s finally home, I kinda wish he would sleep like he did on that very first night he was born, hahahaha!! This little fellow just doesn’t sleep well at night and it’s driving us nuts. Plus we have a demanding toddler in our hands as well now. You can imagine the chaos we get in the house, huh?
But still, this is the memory we will create as a family together. So, I still wouldn’t change a thing.
We love you, Dylan! Thank you for coming to us and being a part of our family. Praise be to God!
