I'm back!!!

Hellooooo everyone!!

It's been a minute, okay well a couple of months LOL...first off Happy New Year!!! I hope it has been good to you so far, I know it's a little late it being April and all but I haven't been in here since early December so I owe you one.

In case you are following me on my facebook page (if you are not, you totally should LOL) then you know am a mommy again yeeey! My son Andrey was born on the 23rd January, via a somewhat emergency Csection weighing 4.1 kgs. I say emergency c-section because up to the last week of my pregnancy I was still clear for a normal delivery and was just waiting for labour to kick in, but on my last checkup my doctor was worried about the size of my belly (i mean look at it LOL) and was concerned the baby may be a too big for me to push without hurting both of us (me and the baby) and he suggested that the safest option would be a csection, I was terrified! It was not something that I was expecting at all because up to the last moment I had had a healthy no complication pregnancy except for the crazy weight gain, I was gaining exactly 10 kilos every month, and by the end of the pregnancy when I started weekly checkups I was gaining 3 kilos a week so by the time I delivered I weighed around 100kgs and crazy stretch marks!!!everyone thought I was expecting twins and I must say even I expected to come out of surgery and see twins LOL! babies even though the ultrasounds clearly showed one baby.



This was after I checked in at the hospital a day before my surgery, my feet were swelling up so bad in the end because of the weight but my pressure was perfectly normal, during the last weeks every thing was painful, sitting was painful, sleeping was impossible, walking was painful I was just limping along but I hated sitting at home so whenever I got  a chance I was up and about the only problem is how much people stared and wo can blame them this is major big and with my short frame I look like am about to tip over LOL.


My surgery went well no complications there though my pressure went up the minute they rolled me into the theater a.k.a the most ugliest scariest room I have ever seen in my life! the people in masks and boots, I mean rain boots whaaat!? didn't know people wore rain boots in theater and why is the operating table so narrow and hard? and it had this old green stained looking sheet on it ewww!! I'm glad they didn't just kill my bottom half for the operation because the last thing I want to be aware of is someone gutting literally me no way! I woke up to excruciating pain, I don't know why they didn't give me pain medication right away all I know I woke up and started crying from the pain when they were rolling me to the recovery room, I met my husband and the moms outside waiting anxiously, apparently the hubby had broke down crying from happiness when they came to tell him that the surgery went well and the baby was fine LOL such an emotional guy...it was good to see their happy faces even though I was in so much pain I was crying. I don't know why I wasn't given pain medication soon after, I mean when I heard that most women prefer a c-section to a normal birth I always thought a c-section was easy and painless and that was not the case for me at all, when I had Alyssa my labor was painful yes but it ended as soon as she was out and on my chest literally, so this was a strange experience I can't lie am the biggest chicken when it comes to Pain I can't handle it well. 


I couldn't wait to see my son before I slept, we had missed that bonding experience of right after birth and I didn't want to waste any more time...And finally we met, my precious Andrey after nine months of waiting!


                                  Happy papa...


                                 ready to go home...

my fingers look like little sausages here, everything got fat.

and I felt well enough to fix my eyebrows and apply some lip gloss plus tons of concealer for my eye bags, can't have people visiting me looking all punched up LOL even though I was feeling as if the pain would never end. 


                                                           His little feet...precious!!


who ever created the pacifier was a genious! my mother hates it says it gives the baby gas, didn't find anything on google (Yes am a google mom, I google everything! LOL) that says that is a definite fact so we still use it because its keeps him calm when hes bored and helps him fall asleep and it stops him from sucking his hands which will end up with him sucking his thumb, I wish I had used it when I had Alyssa because she started sucking her lower lip when she was a baby, she's four now and she still sucks her lip.


I was so worried my spoilt princess will feel jealous of the new baby taking all the attention but it's quite the opposite she adores him, the minute we arrived home she was all over him holding his little hands, very possessive of him, asking to hold him and she's obsessed with smelling his hair. 






My babies...


Dada mkubwa, she begs and begs to carry the baby and since the baby can control his neck now I let her, training her to be a good sister, her brothers keeper.



Andrey is now two months old and seventeen days old, he is not so fussy at night and I'm getting some sleep, I find it more effective to sleep when he sleeps but its hard sleeping during the day and am addicted to Telemundo LOL am following all the telenovelas plus am now foolowing Revenge, Scandal, Single ladies, Vampire Diaries and The Originals and cant wait to watch the first episode of Game of thrones so am far from bored. 

I'm slowly loosing the weight thanks to breastfeeding, I have lost 23 kilos already, am not going to diet because am breastfeeding, my belly is still huge I still look pregnantl, I havent been doing the whole tying with khanga bit everytime I try I get so uncomfortable I take it off, I know am going to regret this when I have a huge belly that wont go away but I hope I can get rid of it when I start exercising, I have already started walking in the evening and I do squats, lunges and jumping jacks to tone up I forget most days though LOL...

Mashallah! Congrats on the new baby looks like the dad lol, or maybe its just me and my blibd self, I wear glasses! I heard its not advisable to funga khanga if you have had a c-section it might rupture your mshono.

Congratulations dear and welcome to the world.I had a Cs also last July (2nd one.)As for the pain killer..its not given early so that when you are given it keeps you going until the pain is gone,in fact they waited till its servier heheheh.

Just some advice from me having had two Cs.....its very very very early for exercises now.You may tamper with the inner stictches which may lead you back again to the theater am sure you don't want that to happen.Give yourself at least 6mnths.

As for the big belly hahahahaha i don't what you gonna do coz again you can funga kanga now because of the stitches.Thats what is stressing me now imagine and its been 9mths already.

Am very mad at my body now.

Congrats Anitha, kababy kacute hako.. Had an emergency C-sec as well last week, wasnt prepared for a c sec at all, was really scared! went to the theater room crying. but yote heri, thanks God was blessed with a baby boy.
so how long did it take for the wound to heal? and unaruhusiwa kuanza kufunga khanga baada ya mda gani maana naona hatuchekani matumbo.

Anitha Anthony said...

Hello decent lady asante sana...am back and i will be posting more on daily basis!

Anitha Anthony said...

Thank you!

Anitha Anthony said...

Asante..yes he looks a lot like his dad but hes slowly changing I think hes starting to look like me now

Anitha Anthony said...

Hahaha i guess so maana i was crying with pain i have no idea why i thot it wuld be painless.

I researched a lot about exercises when i heard i was going to have a csection and wat i learned was its very important to take it slow after a csection because the stitches my rapture true but after two months or so depending on how you peraonally feel because each persons body heels differently you can start to exercise slowly...nothing heavy like running and stuff but walking is not bad as long as u take it easy and u r comfortable, if you feel pain or u start bleeding then you are probably doing too much or you are not ready yet...i walk around my street in the evening slowly just to get active...

As for kufunga khanga i researched that too...apparently kufunga tumbo after a csection actually helps with the healing process , there are special binders that are special for csection women but i also hear if you have had a bikini cut then unaweza funga na khanga juu ya mshono and its perfectly fine, my doctor said its okay for me to it after my 40 day checkup i have just been too uncomfortanle to do it, am getting a corset though...this belly is outta control i still look like am six month pregnant.

Anitha Anthony said...

Hongera forbthe baby boy and pole kwa the operation...i got a bikini cut so its super low on my belly that i cant even see it, but it took a months to completely heal on top though nimesikia it takes much much longer to heal inside.

Doctor aliniruhusu kufunga baada ya my checkup ya siku 40 alisema naweza funga tu its not a problem ila its very incomfortable kwa kweli hata when i had my first baby sikufunga.

Hongera sana my dear. Nimesoma story yako nikahisi nipo theater tena.Yani ulivyosimulia nimehisi ndiyo natoka theater,mimi pia nilifanyiwa operation agakhan mara mbili.ila sita sahau mara ya kwanza nilizinduka bado nipo kwenye kitanda cha upasuaji,Dr anarusha vifaa alivyokuwa anatumia na kuondoka namuona.Nilikuwa na maumivu ambayo hayaelezeki,sikuchomwa sindano ya maumivu mpaka nafika odini.maumivu yalinishinda,pamoja na operation nikajikuta nauma meno huku nimemkamata nesi mkono kwa nguvu zote huku nimelowa jasho,ndiyo ikabidi wakimbie kuleta sindano ya maumivu.sikumuachia nesi mpaka maumivu yalivyoanza kupungua.Huwa sipendi hata kukumbuka.ila usiogope siyo sikuzote utakutana na maumivu hayo,maana mara ya pili nilivyozinduka nikiwa theater walinichoma sindano ya maumivu palepale yakaisha kabla sijatoka theater.

Congrats my self appointed baby sister Anitha. LOL!
Nilikuwa nahuzunika ( lakini with tones of understanding) kila nikiingia humu na kukuta FOR THE LONG HAUL!!

Mwisho kidogo nisuse kufungua japo nilishindwa. Kila siku napita. Leo, duuuhhh nakuta hii post, nimesoma kama mara sita!
Hongera sana sana. Familia ya A A. The baby is so cute and so is the keeper, Allysa, LOL.

Nakutakia heri, na pole na mshono na tumbo. Mie pia ni victim wa C Section tena nje ambako hata kufunga sikufungwa wala kukandwa ( if at all inasaidia) so nina kakitambi ka haja but kananikumbusha result njema niliyonayo- a baby girl.

Mungu akubariki na nakutakia ulezi mwema.

Well,I had a baby some years back na i practically doubled in weight nilikuwa 53kgs but siku nazaa was 100kgs net!nilizaa kawaida but it was horrible...yaani hata sijui nikueleze vipi..uzuri walisema klichoniokoa was my pelvic ..vile am wide kwenye hips so hiyo pelvic bone nayo ni pana otherwise i would have lost my son au me ningekufa...i took me a whiiiiiile to loose the baby weight, two years naz zaidi yaani well i guess vile umri umesogea na my son is almost five but sijaweza kurudi before baby weight..am not hanging between 65-68. tumbo lina stretchmarks balaa..yaani the hanging skin is just horrible mana nilistrestvh balaa...ukiangalia nikiwa na my clothes on i look perfect but wait til you see the excess skin,so i guess wengine haziondoki(i pray yours go back to normal)stretch marks nazo ni balaa na mwanzo zilikuwa nyeusi due to pigmentation na mimi ni naturally light skin, so unaeza imagine iyo pundamilia hapo!but luckly with time zimekuwa zinafanana na rangi yangi so kidogo kinda invisible but oh well..lets just say its not possible to walk around naked anymore..lol..
