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…
