Dreaming of Sleep

Twelve days since Una's arrival and we're still hanging.
It's a love + hate situation around here but we're clinging more to love for the whole household definitely fell in love with the new addition in the family despite her being stubborn most of the time, especially in the middle of the night. I don't blame her thought, might have gotten that from me. And it excites me to discover what other things she got from my genes. Being nocturnal is one of them, noticing her sleeping pattern back in the days of her stay in Mommy's womb. While I, a nocturnal myself, being sleep deprived for the past weeks, have been wanting for sleep to visit me but no such luck. I cannot even remember the last time I slept for eight hours. I know it's unhealthy and I'm having a major migraine but I'm typing these words right now for a distraction. We still have to buy some of Una's stuff later and early this morning was a visit to my OB. The healing process is great and I can't believe I'll be able to lose those pounds I have gained during pregnancy, not that I gained that much anyway. But I still can't believe I lost 20 lbs. in a span of 12 days! Yep, from 120 lbs. to 100 lbs. I'm glad I was able to go back to my almost original weight (I was 104 lbs before pregnancy) and the task of buying new set of clothing is now off the list. All I have to do is just dig those boxes of pre-pregnancy clothes and I can happily wear them again and save extra money in the process.

If only I could keep up with Una's sleeping pattern and lose this freaking migraine, we're definitely loosing the hate word in this transition. But what's to hate when you have this adorable little version of her father sleeping on my chest now. Definitely worth all the sleep deprivation in the world!


  1. What a lovely pic, you two!
    I hope you don't get too skinny...you really need to sleep some more.

  2. Thanks Mimi! Even with the weight loss, I don't look skinny at all. In fact I have gained some muscles in my biceps now, what will all the baby lifting, that's why I'm so surprised that I really lost that much weight.

  3. just like an angel....
    just enjoy here while you still can, babies grow so fast...
    and try to get more rest,and use what help you can get from your family...

  4. Thanks Jinky!

    She's only 13 days old but she's grown so fast and gotten heavier. It's amazing how she recognize us already. How her Lola can put her to sleep immediately or how she knows that she can feed on me or how she can only suck on the pacifier if she's with her daddy or how she would stay in the morning sun with her Lolo.

  5. hey! picasa works! hehehe!

    sensya na hindi pa ko nakadalaw ha, medyo busy. may utang pa ko kay una. pramis!

  6. Una is beautiful. Congratulations to you and your family.

    Sometimes drinking cups of hot water with lemon juice helps my migraines.

  7. Thank you Blisscrochets!

    I'll make sure to dry that one when the unfortunate time of having a migraine hits again.

  8. WOW! Congratulations on your speedy recovery and losing 20 lbs so fast! :) I wish I could do that too after I give birth this July...

  9. Thanks for dropping by Eper. All it takes is breastfeeding for one to lose weight that fast. And with the way newborn babies sleep (every 2-3 hours) you have no choice but get no sleep at all Now I understand why my sister is always sleepy.
