Celebrate + reminisce the moment you went into Labor Day 😍
Remember the whirlwind leading up to your bundle of love? 💞Thinking back on the day, I wanted to share my thoughts on this special day here in this
Labor Day Interview
The brief story about the day I went into labor
🌸Q: What were you in the middle of when your labor started?
♥️♥️♥️ A: I was watching The Dark Knight with hubby when contractions started
🌸Q: When did you know it was time?
♥️♥️♥️ A: Contractions felt stronger and more frequent so my doctor told me it was time to get to the hospital
🌸Q: How long were you in labor?
♥️♥️♥️ A: 12 hours! Sounds worse than it was since nurses encouraged me to sleep for 8 hours (which didn't happen). Come time to push, Nyaeli was born in less than 5 minutes!
🌸Q: A lot of celebrities who chose to be photographed in the hospital after labor have their stylists on board to make them look amazing. Did you do any post labor glamification?
♥️♥️♥️ A: No! LOL On the car ride to the hospital I wished I never took my twists out earlier that night. I didn't want any photos of me in the hospital. My mom tried to tame my wild hair but no such luck. So I was my natural wild self hah!
🌸Q: What do you remember most about the 1st moment you met your daughter face to face?
♥️♥️♥️ A: I wanted her on me right away. She stopped yelping and calmed down immediately after the nurse laid her on my chest. My husband's face was one of joy but his voice was like a giddy kid in a toy store. Guess I felt the same way. Her skin was powdery white and soft. Her body was long and tiny. She looked like a little angel. I know parents say it all the time but now Ive experienced what that means for myself.
🌸Q: Did your husband cut the umbilical cord?
♥️♥️♥️ A: No. The doctors asked him but my husband wanted to stay by my side. Robert performs surgeries almost every day and he absolutely loves it! I think he opted out of the cutting because the experience was so surreal to witness the moment from a personal standpoint. Maybe with baby #2 he will step up and make the cut
🌸Q: Speaking of baby #2, do you plan on having more children soon?
♥️♥️♥️ A: YES! Just one more. Date pending...
