10am - Mahal and I planned to go to Robinsons to buy additional baby stuffs, but after going to a specialty clinic referred by my mom to check for their maternity package (though we have agreed to go to New Era Hospital when the time comes).
11am - We arrived at Drueco Specialist Clinic and registered at the nurse station so we could have a record and an initial check up by the Ob-Gyne doctor on duty. This was when we found out that Mahal was already in labor and her cervix had opened na pala @ 3cm! So we have to postponed our shopping.
12noon - Mahal was admitted while I got back to our house to get extra clothes for her and our baby (thanks sir Toyie for the baby gifts last December).
1pm - She went to active labor. Hindi ko maisip ang sakit na nararamdaman ng isang nagli-labor. All I know is I had to be strong and must convince her to be strong as well for our baby. Though she tried to tell me how painful it was:
7pm - Mahal was transferred to the Delivery Room after mag-8cm siya.
On this moment, I was overwhelmed by mixed emotions, same feeling when I was about to get married.
8:10pm - May narinig na akong iyak ng baby!
Ayel was taken out of the Delivery Room and I got to see my son for the first time...
Tatay na ako. =)
Definitely, this is just the end of the beginning of a wonderful journey called parenting.
