Mommy's birthday was on Wednesday, March 2. (Mommy meaning me, hehe.) It's hard to imagine that a year ago on March 2, I was being induced at the hospital. I don't think I had my blog back then, so most of you probably don't know that I was induced twice at the hospital because I had pre-eclampsia. The first time was on my birthday, March 2... but I guess BJ wanted his own birthday because I was at the hospital for hours, until 11pm, and did not dilate one bit no matter how many contractions I had. The doctors gave me a few options but HJ and I decided to go home. It was quite a tiring birthday.
Then, the doctors decided to schedule another induction on March 9, and that's when BJ was born. :-)
In hindsight, I'm glad that BJ has his own birthday. My birthday has pretty much already become in the shadows since we share the same month, but sharing the same day would have probably made me lose my birthday all together! Last year, many people told me that it's good BJ wasn't born on my birthday because he needs his own special day. However, I think it's the other way around. It's good that BJ wasn't born on my birthday because I need my own special day. lol. I'm not trying to sound selfish but if it wasn't for Facebook, I think most people would have forgotten my birthday all together. Hahaha. Everyone will always remember BJ's birthday, but mommies need their own special day too. lol.
Okay, enough complaining. I actually had a really great week. My parents had a cake for me the weekend before, my students all sang my happy birthday several times (one even baked me a cake) on my birthday, HJ and BJ took me out for a nice dinner and ice cream, and I had another cake with HJ's family today! It was a birthday week for me! I'm really spoiled and loved. :-P
Now it's on to BJ's birthday week!!! Wish me luck as we prepare for his family party..... :-)
