Hi everyone! The rains have finally let up. Let’s cross our fingers it will stay this way and that the sun will shine in the Philippines.
As per the news eighty-three towns and cities in Luzon, including Metro Manila, were placed under a state of calamity after these areas were submerged by floods caused by three days of southwest monsoon (hanging habagat) rains, enhanced by tropical storm “Maring,” leaving at least 15 dead and affecting over one million people, officials said yesterday.
Let’s continue to pray for our country and for those who are affected by the rains and floods that they may feel God’s grace, too.
Anyhow, just to give you a quick pregnancy update. I am now on my 27th week.
How i’m feeling: Great – he’s getting so big… it’s hard to believe we’re already this far along!
Total Weight Gain: not sure – last checked I didn’t gain… probably because I am on a diet. I need to control my food intake to normalize my sugar. In fact, my OB recommended to see Endocrinologist after seeing sugar in my urine. I had my OGTT and the result was above normal. The Endocrinologist asked me to submit my weekly result to make sure that I will not end up with insulin shot. So every after two hours of eating I need to check my sugar. Masakit na nga daliri ko kakaprick.huhu
Well, for this month naman I’ve been a good girl na. I stopped eating rice and switched to wheat bread. So far the results is getting better. I am trying to control din ung mga sweets..pero in times of craving for rice I ate pero as in super kunti lang..
Maternity Clothes: lots of dresses
Gender: a BOY…
Movement: The movement was constant. Now that he’s getting bigger, I think he may be starting to run out of move. But I still feel his wiggling around in there.
Sleep: Can’t sleep last night medyo matigas at masakit ung tyan ko..parang he’s staying in just one side then sobrang tigas. We are talking to him nga asking him na”galaw-galaw din pag me time”..hahaha
What I miss: sleeping on my tummy and in lying position..
Cravings: so far wala naman..
Symptoms: just some slight discomfort in urinating that’s why hubby checked my urine and as expected I am positive to UTI. I emailed the result to my OB and I am just waiting for her instruction. While waiting I increased my water intake na din.But truly, nothing major!
Best moments this week:
I scoured Medela Breast Pump at Babyshop. They are on 50-70% off. I chose the electric breast pump para pagbalik ng work it will be easy for me to pump in our office. I also asked my colleague to buy Natalac supplements. I am planning to take it on my 36 weeks. It will to stimulate my body to produce more milk. Yes I am so positive this time that I can do exclusive breastfeeding and I am glad that hubby is supporting me.
Looking forward to:
I know this sounds crazy… but that 30 week mark!
Praying na matuloy ang first ever maternity shoot ko..Thanks to Karisma Yu for volunteering.
I can’t believe we are already getting this far along, this baby boy is going to be here before we know it!
