Welcome Baby Gihan Raphael Paulo!

Hi everyone! It's been so long since I last updated this blog. I did take the bedrest seriously and control myself not to blog too much. Although the 2-month bedrest due to placenta previa felt like forever, it was all worth it now that I have already given birth to my baby via normal delivery. That's right! I was able to deliver normally since the placenta migrated prior to my due date. Unfortunately, baby did not reach full term; at 36 weeks and 1 day last September 25 at 2:50pm, out came Baby Gihan Raphael Paulo weighing only 5.06 lbs / 2.3 kilos. And although his lungs were already matured, he had to be in the incubator for 2 days because his heart rate was fluctuating. Plus, he also acquired the UTI (urinary tract infection) that I experienced during pregnancy, that's why he had to take antibiotics via injections for seven days. But according to his pedia, once he's done with this, he will be ok.

Anyway, without further ado, let me introduce to you my new bundle of joy - BABY GIHAN RAPHAEL PAULO!
