No More Che

Tomorrow, October 9th, is No More Che Day. Its the day when that ruthless piece of shit received justice. It disgusts me that to this day people idolize that bastard. He murdered thousands of innocent Cubans. And also murdered tons of foreigners. The liberal media hails him as a revolutionary hero. That is far from the truth. He was a racist, communist pig who executed innocent people without any type of trial. He made numerous statements against blacks and yet idiots like Jay Z wear his face on a shirt. The world is a better place without Che Guevara. But it will be an even better place when the Castro's leave this earth. Because they play a huge part in the brainwashing of people. They brainwash people into believing lies about Che. The truth is plain and simple. Che was and always be a filthy communist murderer. And tomorrow we will celebrate that he is no longer able to kill anyone else. He is dead. Nothing will ever take away the pain and anguish that he has caused the Cuban …

Labor and Delivery

I thought i would do a blog post about my experience with labor and delivery. I'll make it easy and go in the order that everything happened. Being a first time mom, and never taking classes in labor or delivery, i was unprepared for how painful it could get. I was also unprepared for any complications.Labor:My contractions started at 1am on June 10th. It didnt hurt that bad at first. I didnt realize they were contractions until they got more powerful. I took some tylenol thinking that i had ate something bad and it was a stomach virus. Tylenol didnt do shit. At first, the contractions were every 15 mins. By 7am, they were every 5 minutes. I didnt sleep at all that night. Around 11am i went to L&D and they hooked me up and verified that they were contractions and that i was 3cm dialated. But apparently i wasnt in active labor because my water hadnt broke yet. They had me walk around the halls for 2 hours to get me dilated more. I was in so much pain that i cheated and went in …

Pregnancy and Respect

I would say out of everything in my pregnancy that has made me depressed or anxious, nothing has compared to what was said to me today at the hospital. I woke up in the morning to blood and cramping. Im 39 weeks. My doctor went over all of the things to go to the hospital for at my last appointment. Bleeding was on the list. So was cramping. So as soon as I saw blood, I freaked out. I went straight to the closest hospital which wasn't the one my doctor is at. And I forgot to call my doctor first. I admit that probably wasn't smart on my part, but then again, I was BLEEDING!!!!!!!!! I also hadn't felt the baby kicking. She normally kicks all morning while im trying to sleep and I felt no movements at all. So I panicked and went straight to the hospital. As a first time mom and this being my first pregnancy, I was not aware that I absolutely had to go to the exact hospital where my doctor was. If I would have known that, I would have gone. The hospital I went to is literally…

The World We Live In.............

I haven't been blogging as much lately. Honestly, I haven't had the drive to. Everything in the news is depressing.

There are still tons of dissidents being arrested in Cuba and imprisoned. And all the world seems to care about is whether or not to lift the embargo. Lifting the embargo will not prevent dissidents from being imprisoned. It wont make Cuba free. Everyones attention should be on the dissidents who are being beaten and jailed on a daily basis in Cuba. The human rights violations are getting worse there and more people need to pay attention.

Venezuela is also getting worse. Leopoldo Lopez is still imprisoned and obviously, the Cuban government are playing a huge role in helping Maduro oppress the people of Venezuela. And of course, just like the oppression in Cuba, the mainstream media continues to ignore the human rights violations in Venezuela.

It has been 25 years since the Tiananmen Square massacre happened. It was and still continues to be a very sad day in hi…

The Next Generation of Cuban Gringas

My beautiful baby girl Selena Inez will be here next month. Im excited and scared of being a mommy. I will be responsible for teaching her everything. Teaching her values, morals, discipline, love, etc. The list is endless.But one of the things i will also teach her, is Cuba's struggle for freedom. Even though she has no Cuban heritage like me, she will be raised learning about Cuba. When i teach her about the Ladies in White, she will learn about courage, love, sacrifice, compassion, dignity. When i teach her about the plight of Cuban exiles she will learn about the history of Cuba and how evil communism is. She will learn how to love and respect different cultures and people.I hope she will have the love for Cuba like I do. I hope she will be involved in human rights activism. And i hope she will get to visit a free Cuba in her lifetime.I will do my best inside of me with all the strength i have to raise her right. To stand up and speak out for those who are oppressed. She will …

29 Weeks

Time is flying by. 29 weeks pregnant with 11 weeks to go. I'm scared, nervous and excited at the same time. I'm scared of the uncertainty of what's to come. Scared something could go wrong. I know God is in control but its still hard. Just praying I go full term and the baby will be ok.

19 Weeks and Counting.....

Tomorrow will make 19 weeks of my pregnancy. I am almost halfway to having my baby. The past few weeks have been hard because I've been sick a lot. I am sick again now and on strong antibiotics. Most of my body's resources are going to the baby, therefore my body cannot fight infections as good as it used to. A simple cold turns into something much worse and lasts for a good two weeks. I can deal with the stuffed up sinuses, but the cough and chest congestion are horrible. It's hard to enjoy my second trimester when I've spent almost all of it so far being sick. One good thing is that the subchorionic hematoma is gone. And the baby is doing fine and I can feel movements when I lay down and sometimes when I'm standing up. I'm hoping I will feel big movements soon. I hope the second half of my pregnancy is better than the first half. My stomach is growing fast now!!!!!
