Week 16-18

It's Christmas and I am still sick. Yes! due to Upper Respiratory Tract Infection (URTI).
Because of that naubos na ang Sick Leave ko... I was unable to attend any Christmas party and Family Reunions.

Dadi Jep also got sick, nahawa na sa akin ang aking tagapag alaga. and we feel like para kaming na exile.
Nakakasawa rin pala ang mag stay sa bahay for weeks. Urgh!

As of today I still have cough, but tolerable.

My Birthday is near and all I can wish for is for me and my Baby to be Healthy...

Merry Christmas Everyone!

The Only Christmas Themed Picture We have this December

Week 15

I supposed to meet my OB last Saturday (Dec 1) but I can't find a clinic that can undergo an ultrasound... Ayun naman pala.. all of the Sonologist are gone for a convention and even my OB is in there to so the check up and ultra sound was rescheduled on Monday.

Came Monday, I went to the lab for my Pelvic Ultrasound, surprisingly the one who's doing my Ultrasound is my OB, I feel kinda attached to her somehow. She did the Pelvic Ultrasound and she's telling me what she sees, unfortunately she can't tell if I'm having a boy or a girl yet, maybe it is still too early. Baby is fine and I had no more bleeding, though my OB still have to check me thru TVU since she can't see my placenta via Pelvic Ultrasound, and then she found out that my placenta is kinda naka harang agad sa Cervix and I should still be careful para maiwasan at hindi na ulit ako mag Bleed.

When I was looking at my baby, i can see his/her legs, arms, nose, lips, eyes and forehead, my OB even show me his/her spine.

Too bad, Dadi Jep was not there to witness his child moving inside me, maybe next time. Hindi kasi umabot si dadi... paglabas ko ng clinic there He was sitting and waiting outside. (sayang much). The last time that he's with me during the ultrasound, baby is still a tiny embryo, now baby is a fetus na.

Recent Baby Picture ^_^
My OB advise me to start taking CALCIUMade and take Duvadilan if needed.

~Sana maging OK na ang lahat during the rest of my pregnancy.

Tuesday (Dec 4) I started to report for work.

Christmas is near and I don't have the luxury of going to the mall to do some shopping... Urgh!

BTW, due to my condition, Dadi Jep and I decided to spend the rest of the Holiday together at Home in our pad at Makati, para less hassle for me on travelling and for me to avoid that Holiday Rush. Also, this will be our last Holiday as a couple since next year we'll be celebrating it together with our Baby...

Hooray! For family life... and for the gift of life and love that God is Showering over us...

Thanks for your time reading my entry... God Bless.

Week 14

Spent most of the days sleeping, resting, watching tv/movie, eating and taking my meds.

I noticed that my headache is subsidding, hindi na cya kasing OA like the past few weeks/months of my first trimester.

Thank God that my baby is safe.

And Thank God for my wonderful husband who never gets tired of fullfilling my cravings.... ^_^ and for taking care of me.

I will be forever grateful that I have my supportive husband with me.

I'll be seeing my OB this saturday and I hope she'll let me go to work again...

Oh! November you're so over... And I'm saying hello to second trimester...

Week 12-13

Woke up with spotting and blood clot discharge when taking a shower... It made me alarn and decided to go to my OB before I go to work.

My OB instructed me to have a urinalysis and tvu with complete details.

I was teary eyed all the time. The thought that I might loose my baby is not good.

On my ultrasoubd i saw my baby for the first time in his human form... I saw the head, the arms and the the legs. I saw him/ her moving and hear his/her heartbeat... I was crying. I can't believe that a miracle is really happening inside my womb.

When I went back to my OB she did another heartbeat test using doppler, check my discharge and told me that she wants me to be admitted for total bedrest for two days... I don't hesitate since I will drop anything for the sake of my baby...

My OB instructed me to go to the maternity and advice to look for Dra Jam. She accomodate me. After some paper work I find my self lying on the HighRisk Room and given an IV, first time ko ma admit sa hospital and I was kinda worried and afraid... Of everything... I call my husband since I need him to do some arrangement with the hospital for my admission. I called my mom if she can accompany me. Since I know my husband has to work.

After staying for 2hrs in HR2 and after all the interview and test all over... they are ready to transfer me into my room, where my husband is waiting...

Oh by the way the doctors diagnosis... Induced abortion... Like... What???

Hopefully all will turn out great...
I'll lift everything to GOD. And may His will be done.

Today baby turn 11weeks inside me. I can’t wait for my next ultrasound.
I'm so excited toknow his/her developments.
I just got my GTTresult and hopefully I am not diabetic.
My appetite isstarting to get normal and I switched from OBSmart to OBMax.
Thankfully no moregigantic med for me.

I'll be seeing my OBtomorrow or if not on Saturday.
I'm used to wearingjeans but I'm started to get irritated with it.
Feeling ko lagingnaiipit yung puson ko, kasi most of my pants are hipster.
I should startinvesting clothes and jeans for my bigger tummy soon!

I'm quite not suekung anong pinag lilihihan ko.
But one thing iscertain, I'm having headaches everyday!

Week 9

As per my iPhone Apps, baby is 9 weeks and 1 day today.
I don't feel much that difference yet, I can still walk fast and do household chores.
Though getting up in the morning is a hard thing to do.
I'm about to visit my OB this Saturday, but since it's a long weekend here in the Philippines this week, goodluck on my Schedule.

I'm not planning on our last diaper free vacation yet, (baka last na yung Boracay namin nung Birthday ni Hubby.) aw!

Hmmm... I have tons of question running in my mind... lots of hopes and dreams for my baby.

I just finished watching "What to expect when your expecting" and I wanted to read the book also. I hope I can buy sometime to go to the bookstore.

I want to have a normal delivery when my time comes... Sana makayanan ko!

I hope I can take my multivatamins without the need to squeeze out the filling inside the capsule, kasi tinitiis ko lang yung lasa kasi nalalasahan yung lansa dun sa meds. Then I'll get to swallow the rest of the capsule after. wah!

Some of my office friends are calling Buntis nowadays, I just smiled back. :)

The moment we stop trying...

Continuation of my Mixed post...

A Hint

If not for the antibiotics that I should be taking for my pharynx I wouldn't found out that I am pregnant in an early stage.
Sept 25, I went to our office clinic regarding my throat, diagnosis infected pharynx, I have a hard time swallowing foods.
The doctor gave me meds including antibiotics. Since I haven't had my period yet, I told our company doctor and she advise me to take a PT prior to taking meds, if negative I should start taking my meds, if positive I'll be back to her.

Sept 26, I took a PT early in the morning, and was surprised that the result was positive. It wasn't that clear yet for us (my husband and I) we're kinda skeptical about it and was wondering if it is a false positive.
That morning I went to our company doctor and she congratulate me and such, I was in tears while saying that the result was positive. She told me to take folic acid right away and have a PT re-test after 5days.

Sept 28, I can no longer wait for the 5days, my period doesn't arrive so I took the test again, the result: positive again.

It was clear to me that I might really be pregnant, and based on our computation based on my LMP, I'm 5 weeks and 3 days pregnant during that time. She advise me to take an ultrasound if I'm on my 8th week of pregnancy and advise when to do my prenatal check up.

We haven't talk to someone to spread the good news, we want a proof of life first.

Since my sister is a nurse, I can't hide anything and due to my curiosity I told her to keep the secret. Until such time that I already have the ultrasound and confirmed that I am really pregnant.

There are only few key person, who knows about by situation. We want to keep my pregnancy secret and quiet since it is our first child.

Morning Sickness.

It exist! I have a hard time waking up in the morning, having headache, feeling bloated most of the time and the feeling of throwing up. The need for more sleep… and taking that powerful nap all the time.
I have a new nickname… MASAN… MASANdal tulog!

First Prenatal Check Up

Last Saturday, October 13 I went to Makati Medical Center together with my hubby to look for an OB for my prenatal Care, we ended up with Dra. Zeanath Palala. She did some questioning and family history., and whola…  We found our selves waiting for my ultrasound at New World Laboratory near Makati Med,
TVU inside Makati Med cost Php2000+ so my OB advise to go to New World Lab since it is much cheaper, TVU cost Php600 there, lucky us our OB knows that we're on a budget. Why? Because I am using my husbands health card (AVEGA) for my check ups.

Other test that she wants me to do are the following:
Urine --> done +MMC
Blood works (CBC, blood typing with Rh factor, Gct R, Rubella, Anti-hbs R, Hbsag R, Vdrl) It cost me Php 1705,
Varicella IgG --> +MCC

I'll be meeting her again after 2 weeks with the results of my exam.

My Ultrasound experience.

We waited for 2 hrs before my turn, since there's a lot of moms to be on the line.
When my name was called I headed to the room and get ready for the TVU, they called my husband so he can also see what's inside me.
I was amazed by the fact that there is a tiny thing inside me, even amazed when she let us hear her heartbeat.
My husband forgot to took a picture, I even advise him to take a video… he was just standing there and looking at the monitor, I would never know how he feels. :)
As per the doctor the ultrasound shows that the embryo is fine, normal and have a heartbeat of 177bpm.
We're so amazed by the fact that, that tiny thing has a heartbeat…

This is really happening.

The OB advised me to continue taking my folic acid and have a multivitamins also, she recommend OB Smart, so we bought it on the way home.
My first ultra sound, the 2 positive PT and my Healthcare Guidebook
 Taking my Meds.

I have no problem taking folic acid everyday, but the OBSmart Capsule is killing me. It was so huge I really have a hard time swallowing it.
I should think of a plan how to take this gigantic supplement. Grrrr. If not for my baby I wouldn't mind taking supplements… Ugh!

Spreading the News.

Oct. 14, 2012
Since there is a proof of life, it's about time to share the good news with my family…
I asked my Sister to open the Skype, (travelling now a days, even going home to Bulacan get's me tired).
I told my parents that they're about to be Lolo and Mamita soon. They are happy and worried for me, my father even advise me not to move much and always take care of my self.
My Brother Noy and Sister Ann was cheering from the background as if they won the lottery.
I guess they really waited that much for this moment.

Sharing the good news with family is rewarding.

I was in tears when I was showing the ultrasound to them… I even told them that I have this fear… Fear of giving birth.
But I know soon enough I 'll conquer this feeling and be ready for the big day. Way to go! 226more days!

Do's and Don't
Take folic acid and multivitamins
Sleep more
Peppermint Tea
Hypo Allergenic Products
Use any whitening product
Color/Treated hair

Knowing that your love ones at peace and that he's in the comfort of our Maker... Free from harm, free from worry, free from pain will wash your tears away...

Though we're sadden that he's no longer with us, that he can never see what tommorow will be, he's hope and dreams for his family... And the fact that you can never see he's smile and hear he's laughter again...

Still I am grateful having memories from my childhood being loved by a gradpa like him.

Though not perfect but his imperfections makes our tata's unique and unforgettable.

His words of wisdom will stays with us, and will pass on to our children and to the next generation...

May he continually guide us from up above... And continously bind this family as one.

You will be forever missed...

It may be the end for him... But we know for sure that he will never be forgotten... He's now with our Creator and having united with his parents welcoming him in heaven...

A New Nest

Jep and I will be moving-in to our new home soon...
And we are so excited...
A studio type unit located in the heart of makati near our office and is very accessible.

We started to clean it up... And even started to buy furnitures.

Looking for the right furniture is not that easy, but with lots of brainstorming and window shopping I think we just found what's best for us.

Oh I love my life and I soo love my husband ^_^

We feel like a newly wed again ^_^

hubby hubby birthday

My Super Enjoy Husband! :)
Celebrating Jep's Birthday on a stormy weather yet exciting Boracay. ^_^

We are thankful that we landed safe and sound at the Caticlan Airport after that bumpy ride. Tapos pag labas ng airport biglang buhos ang malakas na ulan. lucky us.

Instead of being dismayed, i-enjoy na lang ang kakaibang boracay experience na ito... 

Hindi pa man kami nag swimming basa na kami... 

All of our plans are altered because of the weather... but it's ok. The important thing is that we can relax, and have the time for each other and that is what matters the most.

We can't do parasailing and other water sports, so we ended up on Helmet Diving.

The water is quite calm in Balabog beach, so no worry. Ang tapang ko lang mag helmet dive... nakaka kaba at first, pero enjoy naman na pag nasa baba ka na at may mga fish na sa paligid... though i prefer snorkeling pa rin. 

sabi nga nila you do not pay for the ride... you pay for the experience. it was worth the try. with free pictures and video not bad. ^_^

Helmet Diving

Walang kwenta ang birthday kung walang kainan... kaya nag paka busog kami sa loob ng 4 na araw na ipinamalagi namin sa isla.

Pahabol... if ever one of you went to bora, let's just not enjoy the beach... let's also take time to consider helping the environment by simply picking up garbage that we see while walking along the stretch of Boracay.
let's help them save the island. better yet, wag na rin tayong magkalat while visiting this beautiful place.

12 Years...

July 15, 2012

12 years of love, 12 years of happiness, 12 years of friendship with my ex-bf.
I can't thank him enough for all the memories we've shared, good or bad.
For all the lessons I've learned all through out.

As we celebrate our 12 years of being together.
Even though we're married, July 15 will always be a memorable date for us.
Dahil eto yung araw na sinagot ko siya, and we decided to go beyond our friendship.

We've smiled at each other while enjoying our buffet meal... gluttony to the nth level.
Looking back there are times that we don’t get to eat on fancy restaurants on our anniversary,
nag kakasya lang kami sa mcdo at jollibee.
Now is different... God is really Good for both of us.
And all the things that we've been through made us a better person.
Waking up every morning is so rewarding because I can give him a smile to start his day.

Looking forward for every mornings… more anniversaries…
and more loving moments...
that we can cherish as we grow old together.

Oh, I love my best friend, my partner, my ex-boyfriend, my husband!
