I Gave Birth On My Dad's Birthday (My Labor & Delivery Story W/ My Second Baby)

1:51:00 AM


Hey guys, I know I have not posted since super long time and that's because I was way too busy with Kiara and also going through my second pregnancy. Finally Our second baby Jiyan arrived on December 17 2018, right before Christmas. As you all know that Kiara was born on my birthday, my second baby Jiyan was born on my Dad's birthday (his grandfather's birthday). Jiyan was born a week ago and I am one week postpartum, so this is my second time around. I am going to share with you guys, how this time's labor and delivery was and how different it was from the last time.

This time there were some differences and some similarities. Kiara my first baby was born on October 13th 2017 and Jiyan arrived on December 2018, so Kiara is 14 months older than Jiyan. Most of my second pregnancy was similar to the first one but it started getting really uncomfortable towards the end. I was 39 weeks exactly when I had Jiyan and with Kiara I was 40 weeks when I delivered. I will link the birth story of Kiara down below for you guys to watch and read the post.

I started having contractions this time and I went to the doctor probably 2 to 3 times thinking I was in labor because I had regular contractions, but then they would die down. I went in with contractions on December 15th, but they weren't progressing and they couldn't induce me because I wasn't 39 weeks yet, and they have a policy about inducing before 39 weeks so, they couldn't do that. I didn't want to get induced as I wanted to progress naturally. We live 20 min away from the hospital, so on December 16th I stared having contractions on regular basis but not that close apart. I didn't start to have any pains until that end of the day around like 9 pm I literally started having sever contractions.

I called my doctor immediately and she asked me to go to the hospital. Once I got admitted in the hospital, I was almost in labor for 16 hours. I had severe contraction but I was not dilated more than 4 cm. My water broke almost around like 2 pm on December 17. But still it took almost like 2 hours for me to get completely dilated. Finally around 5:03 I gave birth to a 7.5 lbs baby boy. My dad got  his best BIRTHDAY present He can ever ask for, OUR baby boy JIYAN.

  8. What a beautiful story! I delivered my 3rd on the anniversary of my Mother-in-Law's passing. She was 2 weeks early. I believe it was fate, turning a sad day into a happy one.

  18. Oh hes so precious! congratulations! your labor story sounds like it progressed nicely. I have 2 kids and never had a contraction further apart than 5 minutes, and was in labor for 3 days before I was dilated enough to be admitted to a hospital. I always get a little jealous when I read about someone having an easier time than I do LOL! Your kids are adorable and its going to be so fun sharing birthdays!
