Last October 17, 2014 event changed my life, it was one of those milestones in my life that definitely change everything. I gave life to a bouncing baby BOY! My husband and I decided to name him "Harvey Andrei V. Samson". For those who are asking why we gave him that name. Harvey came from one of the main character from Suits (which from Wikipedia A corporate lawyer (named partner) at Pearson Specter (formerly senior partner at Pearson Hardman, Pearson Darby, and Pearson Darby Specter), top 3 Harvard graduate, NYC's best closer. He serves as Mike's seemingly selfish and uncaring mentor. He remains emotionally distant from clients and is willing to do anything to win, except alter the truth. He prefers to settle cases out of court, because trials present too many variables) and Andrei was combination of my name Rayrose and my husband name Angelo.
when he is still on my belly, growing, moving and kicking. The first time I
know that I was pregnant there was a mix of emotions like how can I overcome
the feeling, how can I care him/her. I remember to keep all my high heels and
favorite clothes out of my rack to keep him safe in my tummy. I also remember
buying new clothes and shoes to accommodate him while growing so fast. I
remember taking off my wedding ring because it was too tight for my finger.
There are also stretch marks that horrified me which are not there before,
dreaming that someday they will disappear. Waiting him for 9 months is
incredibly long time but holding him in my arms and sense his skin against mine

My Story of giving birth (as of I remember)
I was rushed in the hospital about 2:00 in the morning at Delos Santos Medical Center, my ob-gyn is Restituto Buenviaje. There are lot of process I went through first was an interview from one of his resident ob-gyn which she checks the baby's movement and I heard my baby’s heart beat using her machine. Next was an interview to the pediatrician of my upcoming baby. The next part was stressful, "labatiba" to clean my intestines. Then I was transferred to the labor room. I still hear the heartbeat of my baby It became faster each time that my tummy contracts. They gave me a sleeping medicine to start the delivery process. Back then I have no idea how my baby came to the earth. I got my mind back around 6-7 in the evening but still my head is really heavy and my body I can't move. His first visitors were my Friend Precious and her boyfriend Xavier. (Thank you for dropping by)
Below are some of the pictures of Harvey :

I take this opportunity to thank for all of the prayers from my Family and friends for my safety and my baby’s safety, most of all I thank God for the gift of motherhood and now my husband and I could experience to have a family, that we can build our own dreams.
