In February we travelled to Israel for the wedding of Towa and Doron. Grandma also came to visit at that time. This is in Tel Aviv with Grandma and uncle Eric

At Towa's wedding

yes it is. By now Elishewa is 9 months old. On her first Father's day it was her 9 month birthday. so much has happened since the last time I wrote. Elishewa is growing so much, she is developing herself and enjoying every moment. By now she has 5 teeth. In February she was in Israel and this is her second trip to NY. Unfortunately also bad things happened to her. Her Zaidy z'l passed away at the end of April, he never met her. Hopefully he is watching her from up there. She already was at 3 wedding ceremonies and 1 wedding party. Tomorrow will be the next one, cousing Estie Yocheved is getting married. We are so excited that we could participate in this simche.

2nd day of Rosh Hashana

The Tuesday b4 Rosh Hashana (september 15th) was my due date. That day we went to the hospital for a check up. The little one was still upside down and not all the way there yet. We agreed to come back a week later and see what we would do. One thing was for sure they didn't want to let me walk the whole 42 weeks.
During the first day of Rosh Hashana we went to shul. We agreed that during Mussaf I would go home if I couldn't take it anymore. During mussaf I felt okay so we agreed that we would stay. At the end of dawening my back started to hurt but I thought it was because of all the standing so I decided to sit down and stay seated. After shul we went home and had lunch, the pain wasn't going away. Because my back was hurting so much, we decided to put a hot water bottle against my back to easen the pain. That didn't help and after an hour of sleep I woke up again and continued saying tehilim. Last year I tried saying the whole tehilim over the course of 2 days and now I wanted to see if I could do it in 1. Around 6.15 pm I finished, I was so proud of myself. My mom offered to help and we walked to her place just to tell her that I finsihed. I told her that my back was hurting and that it wouldn't go away. Around 7.15 pm we decided to walk back and go up the 76 steps to our apt. Around 8 pm my tummy started to hurt too and I thought that this might be the start for the delivery. Daniel went to shul around 8.30 and I started to get stuff ready for dinner. After he came back from shul we had dinner, it was kinda of short bc the pain in my back was so much. I decided to step under the shower to relieve my body from the pain. Around 9.30 pm I stepped under and around 10.00 pm we called the hospital bc the pain was so bad. They told me to keep it up for another 30 minutes and then call back. After 5 minutes Daniel called back, I couldn't take it anymore. We were allowed to come and around 10.45 pm we were in the hospital. After the put us on the ctg they checked how far we were, I had 9.5 cm. The ctg was okay but around 11.30 pm it showed that the little one was having a lot of stress. They decided to do a c-section instead. The whole staff was paiged/peeped and I was on the OR within 10 minutes. They gave me an epidural (it is hard to sit still when you have contraction) and around 00.11 on September 20th Elishewa Miriam Lea was born.
She didn't have enough oxygen and had a rough start.

Update in 5769, just before the new Year starts

This is Okki's room. hopefully soon we can talk about somebody else then Okki but for now, we stay with Okki.
Erez came over the hung up the luxaflex but when it was finally up, it broke. I had to go back to the Praxis to get a new one. I was happy that they make a big fuz about it.
The curtains I did myself, took me a long time but I do feel good.

On the left door there will be a poster with boker tov and a sun. Unfortunately i didn't get it back yet when the photo was taken.

Loving the room

When the room changes we will put new pictures up

This is me last Friday afternoon. we are 37.5 week in our pregnancy.
Next monday we have to go to the hospital again for a check up. I really hoped something changed in the position of the little one but I don't know. According so some people my belly looks different but at this point I don't have any idea anymore.
