Three weeks ago, my little bundle of joy arrived into this world. He decided to give mummy a surprising kick the day before my birthday so my water broke, and he was delivered the day after my birthday after a painful 38 hours of labour! Thinking back, I had no idea how I was able to pull it through. It’s only been 3 weeks but I felt it’s been a decade. My whole world has changed since his arrival – being a parent is what matters to me the most now. Yes, the pregnancy, the labour and post delivery recovery were all difficult, but it’s all worth it every time I look at my precious little beautiful boy. He brings the utmost joy and happiness to my family. And just like every mother, he is the cutest and most beautiful baby in my eyes.
I have mostly recovered after locking myself at home and stuffing myself with loads of food for confinement (which is an Asian thing) for the past few weeks. I will be on maternity leave for 6 months which I hope will allow me to lose all the baby weight and update my blog as much as I can.
