In my first pregnancy, I had a very rough and sensitive first trimester. It was stressful and taxing that I just spent my remaining energy lying down most hours of the day. That’s why looking back, I didn’t have a journal of what’s going on through that period. Since my second pregnancy now, at this stage, is a lot less difficult, I’ll make it a point to record all the changes, development and notes that I may have week by week or as I go along. So that, it’d be easier when I compile and make my photobook for our 2nd little blessing.
- I took the test and got two pink lines as a result on March 11. As per my LMP, the AOG’s 5weeks and 1day.
- No pregnancy symptoms felt except for my taste buds that started to taste weird.
- Morning sickness began on March 18 at 6 weeks and 1 day.
- First craving (even before I knew I was pregnant) was Mangga’t Bagoong.
- Days later, I craved for my Lola’s home made longanisa or those that are made in my hometown. Since it’s far too impossible that I’d have it, I satisfied myself with a Longanisang Baguio (as so labeled) bought from the grocery. Not quite the same taste but it’s close and good enough as a substitute.
- Then I had Yellow Cab pizza for two straight days.
- I’m totally down in the morning. I just drink my meds and eat breakfast, barf then had to lie down again and sleep. Otherwise, I’ll be throwing up all morning long. I’m okay starting at 2 pm through the rest of the day.
- I craved for a footlong yesterday. But since there’s no one who could search and buy one for me, I was okay with newly cooked mini-hotdogs and I consumed about 8 of those, I think, plus two slices of bread for my merienda.
Whew! They say that every pregnancy is different. Although, this is a lot easier than the first (so far), I’d still say that being pregnant is indeed a rollercoaster ride. Whether it’s first, second or any..one’s thing for sure..it’s always TOUGH!Preggie Journal. | Comment (1)
There’s a pregnancy myth that says the gender of the baby can be determined through the looks and aura of the mommy. If the mom looks blooming, it’d be a girl and it’s otherwise, if the mom looks haggard and simply putting it, unattractive. If that’s true, then looking at my face now would connote that it’d be a boy again. I’m having breakouts all over my face that if I’m just not pregnant, I would have bought right away the best acne treatment. Well, once again, hormones are to be blamed. Well, it doesn’t matter really if it’s gonna be a boy or a girl. I also care less if I don’t look at my best while I’m pregnant now. After all, it’s just a myth and it wasn’t the case during my first pregnancy anyway.Filed under Uncategorized | Comment (0)
They are custom cover cases and cost from $12.99 to $15.99. Some of the cases are hand painted so the craft is really something to be delighted about.
A friend’s celebrating her birthday next month and since she loves her iPhone to bits, I think a new cute iPhone case will be great as a gift.Filed under Uncategorized | Comment (0)
If I twitpic or upload a picture of a horse equipment at Instagram, I’m sure that it’ll be a start of yet another laugh trip among my Twitter friends. That’s what I love about these ladies because we do not only dwell on the serious side of life but we let loose our wacky sides once in a while by making tweet jokes and humorous punch lines that could definitely expel the negative vibes in the air. I may not be able to interact with friends personally on a regular basis but Twitter has made my social life even better because I get to mingle with these online-turned-real-life-friends, albeit virtually, 24/7.Filed under Uncategorized | Comment (0)
My 30th birthday remains to be the most memorable and special to date. The husband gifted me and the little boy with a wonderful Boracay vacation, a simple “handaan” at home days before my birthday, and a special dinner at our new fave restaurant. The biggest and sweetest gift arrived a day before my birthday and while we were hoping and all set to have it this year, I was still caught by surprise to see the sign:
So you know now what I am up to if I don’t get to update my online nooks that often: either I’m eating or sleeping (so sleepy for the past few days). My buds have started to taste weird so I have to feed myself every minute. Thankfully, no morning sickness yet although I’m expecting to have it soon since I just hit the 6-week mark yesterday. I recall that with my pregnancy with Asher, I started feeling nauseated at 6 weeks. Hope it won’t be that bad as my first because I had an “all-day sickness” then. But as they say, every pregnancy is different so even though I am somewhat aware now what to expect, I’m still on guard for any new or different sign that I may experience which I did not on the first.
So for now, I’m just living it one day at a time. I’ve unearthed my What To Expect When You’re Expecting Book and found myself re-reading the info I acquainted myself with 4 years ago. I’m thankful that my work load is not that heavy and I’ll try to maintain it that way for the mean time so it’d be less stressful on my part. Less stress means easier and safer pregnancy. I just hope that my hormones won’t be raging that bad and cause me to become overly lazy again like the first time that I gave up blogging for a period of time (to the point that the sheriff suspended my account). I can’t do that again. We need to save for my delivery funds since our health insurance doesn’t cover maternity costs. Speaking of costs and expenses, we’ve restrained ourselves from spending on unnecessary things (read as: luho) as we prepare for yet another challenging expense ahead. We’re used to this naman as this was what we did last year while in the process of acquiring Little Mansion so it shouldn’t be tough on our part. But nevertheless, we need to be cautious since there will always be incidental expenses that will suddenly come up like motor home repair, etc.
I still have a long way to go so please be with me in prayers that Baby A#2 (and me) will be just fine throughout this rollercoaster ride. For Asher that he’d be able to cope easily with this impending huge change and for the Daddy that he’d be continually inspired to provide not only financially but my cravings as well. Hehe!Filed under Uncategorized | Comments (2)
