TWO WEEKS AFTER GIVING BIRTH | Selma Alidini


Hi everyone,

Let me first introduce our new born son, his name is Alan Nasser and he is born on the 22nd of July at 00.19 o'clock (49 cm/2835 g). These two weeks flew by so fast. I just can't believe it. If you watched my 'Get ready with me' video on YouTube you already know that we chose to do a C-section because he was in a breech position. Everything was planned ahead and he would have been here on Tuesday, the 23rd of July, but the little one thought different. He decided to come earlier. 

I felt my first contraction after dinner on Sunday (two days before), but I didn't think that it was time already (my original due date was 27th of July). Once the contractions came faster and stronger I knew we needed to rush to the hospital! I already had 4 cm dilation so it became an urgent C-section. After they took me to the OR everything went by so fast. He was here within 15 minutes after the epidural! My previous labor was a natural labor. This one was very different. I was anesthetized, but still I felt how the doctors pulled on my tummy. It was such a weird feeling. I guess a lot of mothers who experienced that know what I mean.


Those tiny lil feet

After three days in the hospital I finally came home. It was very hard for me to stay in the hospital, not only because of the pain I had, but mostly because I missed my baby girl and my hubby! After five days I finally felt like myself. Every day is a better day.. I had some trouble with breastfeeding, but that's OK now. After two weeks I am (almost) the ol' me! I can do more in my household, I can walk more and my wound is healing very good. :-)

Our first hug

Besides that I really enjoy my little bundle of joy. He is doing so good! He drinks and sleeps good. It's a quiet baby for so far. I just want to cuddle and smell him all the time. Alina was different, she cried a lot in her first weeks. No matter how many time I need to get up at night for him, we are happy and complete now! Life is good. We are blessed with two amazing kids. It's not always easy and I am tired, but they gives me so much strength! We are enjoying our time together. That’s all that matters! More mommy updates will follow soon..

Sister and brother


Love,
Selma
