My first three months of pregnancy was a blur. That was 3 years ago. It was full of anxiety and worry and I felt dead inside. I felt ugly. I felt every negative thing someone may feel in three months time. Fast forward to April 8 of 2011, I experienced the most excruciating physical pain I've ever felt in my entire life but it was all worth the pain.
When I saw my child for the first time, every single negative thing was replaced with happiness! And so it was just right to name him after love and gratitude. As cliche as it may sound, the miracle of life is really.. surreal. But him.. my child, Reiko is just so real.
