Excited! And I just can't hide it

Well, it's been a while... or should I say, it's been too long, yet again. :) I'm just busy preparing for the time I'll see my baby girl. It could be any day now. Exciteeeeed! I think I'll see her by next week already! Excited and a bit nervous. Nervous because of the thorough explanation the anesthesiologist told me weeks ago. Yes, I'm a bit afraid because of the detailed things she told me, on how to put the epidural, etc. Why did she have to tell me all of those? Though of course, it is a good thing so that we'll not be shocked during the procedure. I'm not afraid of needles, I just don't like the thought of it. Lol

Anyway, I'm trying to forget the epidural thing, so I'm already planning for my baby's baptism. I'm already designing the invitations  (yes, I want to design it myself), trying to find caterers (though I already have one in mind), finding a possible reception place, etc. Also, I'm thinking of  Dr. Seuss as the theme…

Laundry detergent for Baby Clothes

Image
Honestly, I didn't know that there are different detergent for baby clothes out there. All I planned was to bring the baby clothes to the laundry shop and let them wash it (thinking it would be cleaner that way), and it could be used by my baby already. But apparently, no, it's not how it's supposed to be. Babies are VIP so they should have their own laundry detergent. Lol. Kidding aside, babies have really sensitive skin hence they have their own laundry detergent to avoid skin allergies, rashes, and whatever bad things that could happen to their skin. 

So, as a 21st century mom like myself, I searched the internet, read on forums (on femalenetwork and smartparenting) because I want to know other moms' story regarding the detergent they're using/used. And I bumped into these products that most moms are using / have used that are given positive feedback.

Rashes during Pregnancy

Image
Wow! It's been too long since my last blog post. The reason for that was... I got skin rashes and because of that, I became uncomfortable moving, nervous until the day I had my check up done, and my hands were quite busy scratching my body. Lol

I think I got it around 3rd week of October, I started scratching my arms and legs thinking it was just nothing. I already have stretchmarks on my tummy area so I think I was just itchy because of something I ate or because of some insect bite or because I haven't got a shower yet. I usually take my warm bath at night time because it's more comfortable to sleep that way, it's presko. The day after, my arms and legs are still itchy and it's getting more and more uncomfortable. There are no rashes yet, though my skin is kind of red because of all the scratching I did. A couple of days later, bumps showed, there are butlig butligon my arms and legs, worse is that because of my non-stop scratching, I'm having wounds, like bit…

Our Baby Girl

Image
As I mentioned yesterday, we went to have our 3d4d ultrasound at World Of My Baby (W.O.M.B) last Monday. We chose the World Premiere Package which includes 5 B&W thermal prints, 5 colored photos, and OB report which costs 2,000PHP. I think it was quite a deal unlike to some ultrasound centers that includes photos and report at around 3,000PHP, also staff and OB at W.O.M.B were really nice.

Anyway, here are the photos of our baby girl...








SO CUTE!!! I want to see her already and pinch her cheeks!!! I love you my #QTP2T baby girl!

Check-Up: Oct. 7, 2014

My check-up was supposed to be October 6th, my man's birthday, and we thought it was great since he would be able to accompany me by then. But, a couple of days after I had my check-up last September 22nd, we received a text message saying we have to reschedule to October 7th since October 6th is a holiday. (I honestly thought they're exempted for the holidays. lol) Well, okay.

What happened during the check-up...


My ob-gyn, Dra. Aquias, gave me flu vaccine since she told me babies cannot have flu vaccine until their 6th month, meaning from 0-6 months they're unprotected, so they gave me the vaccine for the baby will be protected until the baby's 6th month. 

Dra. Aquias asked me if I have cramps every now and then, I said yes, so she doubled my intake of calcium. She also gave me malunggay supplement, Natalac, for my breast milk. Hoping I have breast milk as soon as my baby arrives.

I just found out that malunggay is good for lactating moms. Meh

It was just a quick check-up…

3d4d Ultrasound

My husband and I been wanting to try 3d4d ultrasound because we really want to see our baby girl already. We're that excited. Haha! Though at first I was hesitant because of some comments that I've read saying "it's bad for the baby because of the heat, etc"... So I asked my ob regarding this matter, and she said it's fine and even gave me a prescription letter for 3d4d ultrasound. So of course, I searched for ultrasound centers that has 3d4d near our place (or is accessible enough to go to) and is affordable. 



Here is a list of the ultrasound centers that I was able to contact:
Top Health Medical Clinic SM San Lazaro Contact nos: 353-4461 to 62    or   353-2575 Without report                   950PHP With report                    1,600PHP With report & video        3,300PHP
In My Womb SM Megamall Pearl Package                 3,000PHP
Mega Clinic SM Megamall Bldg. A 5th Floor Contact nos: 637-9661 to 68 Photo, report, video       3,300PHP

My man's birthday!

Image
In a few hours, we will be celebrating my man's birthday! We already celebrated a little earlier, we ate at his Ate's house and they drank some tequila. It was not as grand as how we used to do it, but it was fun. :)





Dear Joshua, 
You are now turning a year older, though not older than me, because it will never happen... Boo! I am thankful that I have met you. Our start may not be as smooth or as romantic as what others had, but now, it doesn't really matter, does it? We've gone through good and bad things and even worst things, but still we're together, and forever we will be. We may not be perfect as a couple, or even as individuals, but hey I think we're quite perfect for each other. 
Thank you for always being there for me. Thank you for understanding. Thank you for the love. Thank you because it is you who I will spend the rest of my life with. Thank you because it is you who is the father of my baby girl. 
I know you are the greatest father our daughter will …

Hello, October!

Image
Since that is what I've been seeing on my facebook feed today, why not make it my title here? Haha!

Ah, October.

When I was still in college, I love this month because it screams SEMBREAK! But now, it screams BIRTHDAYS, BIRTHDAYS, AND MORE BIRTHDAYS! (try reading that the way SpongeBob say it on Nickelodeon. Hehe) Just on the first week itself, we have 3 celebrants here at home already. Which is quite exciting! Yey! 

And look what we received today. It's not even my father-in-law's birthday yet. Should we clap? Lol



Thank you, People of Makati, for the cake! Lulz! 
How does it taste? It's sweet. I don't think it would be good for our Senior Citizens, but well, okay. It free so... or rather, it came from our taxes, so it's fine.

Sana may kasamang pansit. Chos!

Baby Essentials

Image
I've been browsing on Instagram to look for cute clothes, shoes, costumes, and even toys for my baby girl which is really exciting but, not really a must, as of now. Yes, it is good to buy some of those beforehand, but I think I must focus more on the necessities of my baby before she arrived. Since I am clueless on what would be the essentials for my coming baby, of course, I googled. Lol! I've checked several sites, and came up with my own, I've added and/or removed a few since I don't think I will be able to use the same as what others are using/used.


Here are the things on my list:









Sale Alert!

Hi Moms and Soon-to-be Moms out there!

I was with my Mother-in-law at Cash and Carry Makati earlier and saw that they are having a sale of baby stuff! Yes! 




I did not have any money with me earlier so I was not able to buy anything. :-( But, my mother-in-law bought this set of socks for my baby girl which costs for only Php 150 (not yet the discounted price)!!!



There are lots of baby stuff on sale! From baby feeding bottles to cribs! Even toys! I saw this set of two Avent baby feeding bottles in 9oz which are only for Php700+! I think it was a steal! No, I don't think it was a steal, it is a steal! Hoping I could come back there with my husband and buy stuff for our baby until sale is still  happening! 


Another sale happening in Market! Market!



As of now, these are the only baby sales I know! If some of you moms out there know any sale going on right now, feel free to leave comments!



Check-Up: Sept. 22,2014

Yey internet connection's back! WTF PLDT!!!! In red and all caps because we're all angry here at home. Lol

Okay, so let's talk about my check-up which happened yesterday, Sept. 22,2014, Monday. So, I grabbed a taxi near our place, (yes I was alone because everyone's in the office, and there's no one available to accompany me) and on every red light, the taxi I'm riding in was always the last to move, I was wondering why. I thought he was texting (which is bad. Never text and drive!!) but worse than texting while driving? Yes, manong driver was sleeping during stops! I had to wake him up every time the light turns green! And I thought since he knew that I knew that he was sleeping, he would stay awake, but no, he did not. But thank God nothing bad happened. 

So, what happened during the check-up? Dra. Aquias, my Ob-Gyne, first asked questions of course, how was I, etc... I told her regarding my back pain, which she said is due to the weight my baby's gaining, …

3rd post Introduction

Image
Good morning! 

It's just 11:30 in the morning and I'm in the mood to post. Anyway, I woke up a bit earlier than usual today, around 10 in the morning. Maybe because I was expecting Joshua's (my husband) niece and nephew would be here!

Anyway, as what the title is about, this is somehow my introduction about myself and this blog. So, let's start...

What's happening?

Hello!

Today, I woke up to a downpour, it was almost 12 noon and as what I've read on twitter, typhoon Mario has just landed, though it has been raining since midnight. I know, right? Lol! Anyway, it would have been nice to cuddle but husband's gone to work already, so there goes my cuddle buddy. Haha!

In regard to typhoon Mario, there were no thunder, no hard wind- just rain. But, it was continuous. It just stopped at around 8 this evening. Many areas in Metro Manila has been flooded, many were stranded. Hopefully those who were stranded earlier were able to go home by now. Thank God husband's office is just around the corner or I will be paranoid. Also, no family, relatives and friends were hurt due to typhoon Mario. Thank goodness!!

Also, another story is regarding Mayon Volcano... Not yet sure with the whole story, but I think it was about to erupt? Not really sure, so I will try to read more about that matter. So, for now I guess we're on standby. Oh my pamaypay! Wh…

Afternoon boredom

Hello there moms, mommies, mamas, nanays, mothers all over the worldwide web! 
I've been meaning to start a blog on being a mother, specifically on being a first time mom like myself since I don't know when. And since, I've got not much to do this Thursday afternoon, I thought... Why not now? So here it is! I just want to share with my fellow nanays (or to anyone) out there my journey on being a first time mom, hopefully someone out there will share their stories with me, too. Also, some tips! Hehe :-)
Anyway, I am now 7th month pregnant, and I love it! Though it may be hard at times, because well... there comes a time my back hurts, tummy hurts and all.Well, generally it is quite hard moving around with a big tummy, and knowing that your precious baby is in there, so being extra extra extra careful is a must. And I'm a klutz, so yeah.
Well, here goes my first entry! Laters
