When my elder daughter turned 5, hubby and I decided to try to get pregnant again. I had issues with hormonal imbalance because of my work in a contact center so we had to seek help from an OB Gyne. Had little trouble while preggy but glad to have given birth through normal delivery.
We were blessed with another girl after 2 years of trying. I chose the name Haley 'coz I really like the character of Bethany Joy Galeotti in One Tree Hill which I often watch when I was pregnant. Roneese is from a name listed in one of my notes when we were still choosing a name for big sister Keanna. It was originally spelled as Ronice, I just had to change how it's spelled. Hubby agreed with Roey's name since it sounds like it was derived from his name Ronald. He would even tease that Roey looks like him and big sister Keanna would always react to that. Keanna says that Ronald is always in denial that she's the female version of her Dad. I think we were able to "ready" Keanna even before Roey arrived. She was really glad to be an "Ate" (big sister) now. She would even stay inside the crib just to be with her sister.
Roey (her nickname) had to stay 5 more days at the hospital. She "overstayed" in my tummy that she already pooped inside while I was on labor. LoL! I am glad though that I was able to breastfeed her even for just 5 months. It was quite hard for me especially that I was like a pump machine even at work but I love that fulfillment. I would have loved if the milk supply lasted a little longer. How about you, what's your story when your baby arrived? Join us and share, just click on the badges below.
