Week 23

Emotional. I am beginning to be. My mood swings and I am not happy about it. One of my friend tell me to think of happy thoughts for my baby's sake.

Rashes. I have some in my tummy, I just noticed them two days ago, I stop using the tummy butter, but they says it is normal to have rashes specially during pregnancy due to hormonal changes. I'll just moisturize my tummy. Urgh!

Alone.  Most of the time I am. At work, I am sitting at a corner where all I can see are cisco boxes and the wall in front of me. I feel sleepy every time I am at my work area, so I must keep my self busy at all times. I played music all of the time... BACH Orchestra is currently playing. Contrary on being alone, my baby kicks and remind me that I am not. Thank you baby! Mami loves you very much.

Work. I am still working and planning to work up until Mid of May. It exhaust me sometimes but I am glad I can still accomplish things, and I am happy about it. I am an expectant mom but I am also a career/technical woman. Haha.

Cisco. My Certification will expire by April and I don't have the luxury to study. I'm thinking of focusing in different area. Or maybe I'll re-take the CCNA exam if given the chance.

Friends. I miss them so much, the sleepless nights of talking. Catching up over coffee or 2 bottles perhaps.Sigh!

Parenthood. Soon we'll be and I am somehow scared. Can I be a good mom to my child. I'll try my very best to be. That's the plan.

Attitude. This is what matters the most. POSITIVITY!

Week 22

Baby kicks! Napapadalas na ang kanyang movements recently. And just last Friday (Jan 25) nakita ko na gumalaw ang aking belly... Hindi lang napapadalas ang baby kicks... napapalakas na rin ito. And last Saturday night first time ni Dadi Jep na ma-feel ang baby kick when I placed his hand sa ibabaw ng aking tummy...
Nakakatuwa lang... ^_^

Yesterday, we went to the mall... Yes! sa wakas nakapag mall rin ako though I get too tired easily (pansin ko lang) every now and then I am looking for chair to sit in. :) We scout for some baby crib and baby stuff but we did not buy any, window shopping muna.

As early as now ang dami ng sponsors ng gamit ni Bebe Girl. *tenchu* (you know who you are)

I'm 22weeks and 6days today. Hooray!

Parang ambilis na lumaki ni baby! :)

Currently I'm taking 3 meds/supplement a day. OBMax for my Multivatamins, Calciumade for Calcium Supplement and TriHEMIC for Iron Supplement.
Tiis-tiis lang ang dram while taking the meds.... T_T *para kay bebe girl... kelangan ko sila lahat inumin*

Great Finds

iPhone White Casing and Holder, Bag Organizer
Tummy Butter, Celeteque Facial wash and moisturizer
Yes they are!

I sooo loved this white casing for our phones and the holder is so useful. we bought the case for 88 pesos and the holder for 66 pesos at Japan Store ang mura diba?

Palmer's Tummy Butter for 350 pesos. For my tummy to avoid Stretch Marks during and after pregnancy.

Celeteque Facial Wash and Moisturizer that we found on Mercury Drug Store while I'm buying my vitamins.
I switch from Cetaphil to this. also non-hypo allergenic and so far ok naman cyang gamitin. My husband used it too. :) hehe

The Bag Organizer is from Storage Solutions for 260 pesos (from 280 pesos nakatawad pa ako). Made of light weight material and doesn't add up to your bags weight...

No more messy things inside my bag. I actually bought this kasi I'm tired of the many 'mini' pouch that I used to hold my Stuff. and to protect my bag also, since white ang inside ng bag that I usually use for work.

More Closer look at the Bag Organizer

Before and After 

Thank you Cash and Carry... buti na lang malapit ka sa bahay namin... ^_^


I never get used to surprises... but every woman, I think, loved them and I sooo love every time my husband surprises me...

Last Friday night, my husband grant one of my wish (I actually made a wish list that I posted on our refrigerator door to remind him what are the things and hope I wish to receive from Santa during the last Christmas ^_^).

I wasn't expecting that I would still be receiving gifts since Christmas Season is over. Chos!

The funny part is that I wasn't able to notice his surprise when I open my closet (ako na malabo ang mata).
When I closed the closet he mumbled. I don't know what he meant by that, I thought I ruined my closet by pulling my clothes. then I opened it again and found an iPAD mini with a note on it saying: "TO: BEBE GIRL LOVE U, DADI"... I was surprised literally, and can't believe it, I was in tears when I approach him and says how surprise and happy I am.

I never thought that I will be surprise like that again, I am not that material type of girl/wife, but the fact that he put so much effort to surprise me is what I love the most.

dadi's note, my reaction and the box ^_^

To my Husband, sorry if I blogged about this, But I am just one happy wifey here! :) i love you! I'll store tons of baby stuff in here for our BEBE GIRL. :) Oh! by the way, thank you for being my number 1 reader... :) muah!

Week 21

Congenital Scan. Scary as it sounds but it's not. 21 weeks and I was asked by OB to take the Congenital Scan and Urine Test before I see her a month after my last check up (Dec. 17, 2012). As per some of my office mates it was too early yet to take it and I maybe even asked to repeat the test during the 7th month. But I don't mind really... Taking the test will makes me feel at ease and making sure that my baby is doing fine is what's matter the most.

Had my Congenital Scan for my baby today. Luckily my husband was able to view and hear our baby for the second time (the first one was during the first ultrasound). I wanted him to be there and share the memories/experience together. We're happy to find out that there are no Physical Anomalies found, and that our baby is growing normal. We also found what we're having... and we're happy about it. :)
I'll be seeing my OB tomorrow with this result and with the result of my urine test (that I will get tomorrow).

As per the results: (sinisipag mag type ang blogger)

Congenital Anomaly Scan: Shows an intact cranium and intracranial structures. Nuchal fold not thicked. Normal facial features with intact lips and palate. Intact spines with no neck masses. Normal 4 chamber heart view. Normal outflow tracts and 3 vessels and trachea view. Intact diaphragm. Stomach bubble to the left and below the heart and diaphragm. 3 vessel cord with intact cord insertion. Normal kidneys and fluid filled bladder. Extremities complete and well aligned.

Impression: Single live intrauterine pregnancy 20w6d by composite aging in cephalic presentation with good cardiac and somatic activities. placenta anterior grade 1 totally covering the OS. Normohydramnios. Sonographic estimated fetal weight is appropriate for gestational age. No gross deformities noted.

Say Hello to our precious one... 

It's a Girl
Oh yes! We're having a GIRL... and I quote the OB "walang lawit, hiwa lang" :)

Week 19 - 20: Halfway There!

Happy New Year!

My first entry for the year 2013... Hooray!

Q: Did you know that the blogger/wife/mom-to-be  just add a year to her age just before the new year?

TOP: Me, Tatay, Ann, Nanay, Noy and Cadong
BOTTOM: Dadi Jep, Me and Baby (via Ultrasound)
As we welcome 2013, I feel so blessed and lucky to celebrate it with complete family, it's been a while... and yes, the drama and the hugging and the tears will always be there! Oh well, it is not a family reunion without a little drama.

We do not have the perfect family but I'm happy with it, they made me stronger and made me who I am today. It made me appreciate life and love.

I wrote each one of them a letter (except for Dadi and Baby) stating my hopes and dreams for them. We may not have an extravagant celebration, but a complete family is enough, I just hope this will last forever... a lifetime...

Recent Picture ^_^

Today (01.09.13)  as per Baby Center Apps: Congratulations! You've hit the halfway mark in your pregnancy. 

I feel more energetic and less of the morning sickness, minsan nakakalimutan ko na preggy pala ako especially if I'm too occupied with my work. 
Baby Kicks are here and I'm feeling it. Minsan na co-confuse ako if it is just an upset stomach or if it is my baby's kick. :)
Kakaibang experience pala ang maramdaman ang unang movement ni baby inside my belly. Feeling ko he/she is joining my conversation with his/her father. :) 

We do not know the gender of our baby yet but I'm schedule to have my Congenital Scan/Ultrasound on the 17th of January... I'm sooooo excited... Hopefully the test will turn out great.  we wanted to know if everything is fine and wanted to find out if baby is a Girl or a Boy... We've been playing with names lately and we haven't decided yet, to what letter the name will start. hehehe. We want our baby's name to be simple... Kasi ayaw namin cya mahirapan mag sulat ng name nya pag nag-aaral na siya. hahaha.

Thank God for all the Blessings and 
for all the wonderful gifts (in all forms)
Happy 2013 Everyone!
