Tell us about your little miracle!

My pregnancy was ideally perfect! No any signs all 9 months (just bump, i started showing about 24 weeks). I gained 18 pounds only and my baby was born 8.5 lbs weight and 21.25 in length. He arrived exactly at due date, 3/13/2020 (that was Friday 13th!) Absolutely healthy boy, named Harvey Ryan Gaziev! He is absolutely perfect! Funny thing is that he wakes up at night only once exactly at 2:00 AM, when I woke up for pee during pregnancy :)
