Pregnancy updates @ 16 weeks…

Just popping in with a quick update — I’m 16 weeks pregnant!!

I started feeling a lot better around this time, and I’m so glad to say that I have a ton more energy and nausea is almost nonexistent  though there are times I still can’t control the vomiting issue especially when I smell lotion, strong perfume or when I’m on an empty stomach, so I try not to let myself get too hungry.

Heartburn is my main issue, and I have tried almost everything to get it to go away.  I had it bad with little A, but I can’t say it was as bad as this.  There are times when it nearly incapacitates me and I have to go sit down.

For cravings, I always want to eat croissant from Seattle’s Best almost everyday for breakfast. One thing I noticed there are foods which I super enjoyed eating before being pregnant that I cant stand the taste now a days.Previously, I’d love peanut butter in my toasted bread but now it taste awful to me.

My next appointment is on 22nd of June and by that time there’s a possibility of knowing the gender, which I am really looking forward to. I am excited and a teensy bit nervous.

Thanks again for supporting me and being here for me to share this with.

Happy Independence Day Philippines!!

Hello Wednesday I’m Back!

Hello everyone!

I feel like I haven’t blogged in forever (well, technically its been 8 days–I am still in the height of morning sickness and I always feel sick lately).

To keep you posted about my pregnancy journey, yesterday I was admitted in the Mediclinic City Hospital due to hypertension.

Actually I wasn’t aware that my blood pressure was quite high during that time because we only came there for check-up. I’ve been experiencing pain kasi on my abdomen and to make sure that everything is doing well with Baby Wiggle, hubby and I decided to passed by in Mediclinic City Hospital.

The nurse in the Triage Room interviewed me and did the routine check. After checking my BP she said “ate mataas ang BP mo di ka ba nahihilo?”. To my surprised I said “di naman baka napagod lang ako sa byahe”. She assisted me in the other room and let me rest in the ER for a while to monitor my blood pressure.

The second time they checked instead of bumaba lalo pang tumaas maybe because I was in panicked na kasi first time na tumaas sia ng 189/110 ata.

When they saw the repeat test the doctor ordered for ECG test right away. I was like “what’s going on”? We were waiting for the result of the exam when the OB Gyne on duty came, she asked me questions before performing the ultrasound. The BP was quite alarming that’s why they decided to check the condition of Baby Wiggle.

Thank goodness that Baby Wiggle is fine but Dr. Shamad said she will order for transvaginal.
Right after Dr. Shamad assured us that everything is fine with Baby Wiggle another doctor came. He explained to us (hubby and I) that my pregnancy has nothing to do with my hyperetension. Normally, daw blood pressure will arise after 20 weeks eh 8 weeks pa lang ako. So he said that I can’t leave the hospital unless they will perform the blood and urine test. Parang gusto kong sabihin na “doctor di po ako nagpagupit para mag stay sa hospital, mag mall po ako today..”hahahaha

So as per ordered of the doctor we stayed and waited for the result. While waiting I talked to hubby.

Me: Daddy, last na baby naten to parang di na kaya ng katawan ko?

Daddy: Wag ka nmang ganyan, mommy. (playing candy crush pa yan)

Me: OO nga, dad! Madami ka ngang anak ikaw lang magpapalaki kasi shorbak na ko, Gusto mo ba yun? – (in nakakaawang tono).

Daddy: deadma..

While waiting for the lab test results we ate pizza muna, I am so hungry na din kasi.When the doctor appeared again, he’s holding my result na. He said that everything is normal except for the urine. Parang me nakitang something but he’s not ruling out na infection nga yun so he will send it to the laboratory again for culture test. It will take 3 days daw for the result.

After a while I was released and referred to the Internal Medicine. I’ll come back today for follow up.

Hay, I hope everything will be ok na. Will you also pray for me and Baby Wiggle. The Radiology confirmed that they will also do the transV today.

Anyway, I super like sa Mediclinic City Hospital. Nurses and Doctors are all attentive and very maasikaso. Very soft-spoken din sila and they are all maalaga. Super nice pa the facilities and very prompt sa pag schedule

Pregnancy Cravings – Max’s Restaurant

I’m curious what’s your cravings during your pregnancy?

Most of us women experience cravings at some point.  The most common cravings I experienced from my first son are for sweets, dairy products and salty foods although there are some weird cravings out there.

But with little wiggle, I haven’t had too many pregnancy cravings except lately, I have an intense craving for Kare-Kare and Shrimp.

Shrimp Gambas in Aligue Sauce

Max’s Restaurant would be an obvious solution to my cravings, but it can be hard to get over excited to indulge kasi I am getting heavy. I am eating plenty of rice lately. I need to know how to eat by portion.But how can I say no to these fantastic foods. I guess, giving in to my cravings will not make me  a bad person, di ba?? hehe

Kayo anong pinaglihian nyo??
