I have not written for a while as I have recently given birth, on October 20th to be exact!! Originally, our baby boy was due on November 11th but due to a medical issue my OB decided to induce me, and voila, (well not much of a voila, more like never before felt pains of giving birth), our little one ended up being born just a few days shy of 37 weeks. But about a week before the induction, I had to stay in the hospital for almost two weeks, being closely monitored. I’d like to quickly say thank you to Dr. Bellange of Vancouver for coming to see me every single day at the hospital, for inducing my pregnancy so that I could have a safe and natural delivery, and also thank you to my current GP, and for the nursing staff of BC Women’s hospital, for always being there for me and the baby; and of course I can’t forget my husband, family and friends whom always contacted us with love and worry. For in that moment, you quickly realize how truly fragile life is and you hold on to prayer, praying for mine and the baby’s health, and a happy ending.
Today, I feel blessed to hold our baby boy, of whom we named Finn, by the way, and everyday I fall more and more in love with his gentle little soul. Why Finn? Well it’s an Irish name my husband Brandon and I both loved right away, paying homage to Brandon’s background. Baby Finn loves to smile and overall, he’s quite an easygoing baby (unless he doesn’t get his food, but who would be while hungry haha?!).

A Few Pregnancy Photos💛:
Below, I’d also like to share some photos of me while pregnant. On that day we had to rush the photos as I was in pain and in my heart I felt like we didn’t have much time, so my husband took them quickly. I threw on what I had in my closet, and I actually ended up really liking the outfit: An old maxi dress from a store that no longer exists, Spring booties and a cape from Privilege. It was nice to play dress up amidst the pretty Fall leaves, and finally put on some make-up as I wasn’t feeling well. In that moment though, I felt at peace and was happy.☺️
Well, thanks for stopping by!! I’m now in the difficult but beautiful journey of motherhood yay. I’ll be posting more! See you soon friends! Big hugs!!
