MANILA—Solenn Heussaff can remember the day she began fearing the worst. She was five months into her pregnancy in what she recounted to be, up to that point, a relatively hassle-free start to it.
"No morning sickness, no cravings, no mood swings," she shared in her newest vlog, wherein she tearfully recalled the many ups and the significant lows of her journey before giving birth to her first baby with husband Nico Bolzico on New Year's Day, Wednesday.
Things threatened to go wrong when doctors told her that the baby was "in the 10th percentile, meaning it was very small."
She and Bolzico were worried that she might have to give birth at five months, which posed a great risk to the baby's health.
"I would have to say that the worst week and a half, two weeks of my life. It went by so slow. I couldn't do anything . . . I remember Nico and I were crying every day," Heussaff said.
What helped them get through it, Heussaff continued, was having friends who consoled her with similar experiences, and the unerring support of her husband who "was so good at being my nurse."
The blog had clips featuring Bolzico helping her with the injections their doctor prescribed, as well as short videos of her undertaking her new diet, which she said felt like it was for "body builders."
"It's been such a long journey. It's been a long, long journey. So happy I'm finally at the end," Heussaff, in tears, said.

Heussaff and Bolzico welcomed daughter, Thylane Katana, Wednesday. She is their first child since marrying in 2016.
They first announced that they were expecting last August.
