Baby Albert has a magic room


After weeks and weeks of tormented work, I have finally managed to finish preparing the room for the baby who is about to come in 10 days. The doctor established the date of 20th February for the C section and I am counting the days, literally...It's been hard, very hard, the hardest part was in month four when I had to suffer an emergency surgery for gallbladder removal. It was a very scary and painful experience, considering the fact that I could not take any pain medication, aside from Paracetamol. And I was so terrified that the whole thing could affect the baby. But fortunately everything looks great so far. He is 3 kg already ( 6,6 pounds), the doctor said that he is long, he's gonna be a tall boy :). I'll probably cry a river when I finally hold him. He is already the love of my life :). Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and the very useful advice. They were so useful, I appreciate every little tip on being a good mom for a newborn. So, the countdown has started....10 more days to go :).

This time of waiting is always an anxious one, and what a scare to have to go through surgery in the middle of it all! Well, I'm thinking of you and hoping all goes well. Love the room - great job!

Hello Petronela,

It is so long since we last connected. Too long!

Just a few more days to go. This final waiting time will probably seem the longest but Albert will soon be held in your arms. You have made his room totally delightful. A nursery fit for a king!

Wishing you a safe delivery and all happiness.

Petronela, I am SO excited for you... just 10 more days and he will be there.

I did not realize you had to have surgery for your gall bladder, I am so sorry ... I have been kind of oblivious to most of FB..

I am going to pray for you and the baby, I know everything will be fine and you will make an awesome mom.

I love his room, it is so nice and lots of great colors for him to see... xox

Hi Dear Petronela!

We are even connected! During the day today I thought about you sometimes.
Now the night I'm reading your news shared on your blog.
The Albert's room is perfect to receive him. I feel very happy for you because I was also mother to your age. I look forward to the news about the birth and talk in detail about this great love of your life.

Cheers, hugs, kisses, greetings!... love...

What a beautiful job you've done to the nursery! Sorry to hear about your gallbladder surgery and that you had to endure so much pain while being pregnant, it must have been so terrible! HUGS to you and good luck with your C-section! I hope everything runs perfectly and that you heal up quickly. I look forward to more blogs after you're done your mommy resting stage. Have a wonderful day and much love and positive thoughts/prayers for you and the baby.
