My Pregnancy Weight Tracker

Last Saturday - February 18, 2012, I had my pre-natal consultation with my OB-gyne Dra. Susan Valdez. I was the 3rd patient. I arrived in the clinic before 9am - the opening time of the clinic and waited until 11am for the doctor to arrive. Patient really applies here - we gotta be patient waiting for the doctor, call of their duty. Dra. Valdez had her round or visitation in the hospital she is affiliated with.

As the usual SOP - we were called by the assistant to get the blood pressure and weight. I had a BP of 100/60 and weight of 67 kilograms, woohaaaa, 67kilos? (this on my 34th weeks and 3days) We weighed twice and the result was the same. Two weeks prior to this, I weighed 53kls only. How come I gained 14kilos in two weeks? I even do not look like I'm 67! Okay then, I waited for my turn to be called by doc. When I was inside the consultation room, and Doc Valdez saw my weight, she was shocked, "how did it happen?" she said. "It's not normal, do you have a diabetes, a hypertension?" she asked me. I said "wala po" "Hmmm, nahilo ako dito, the normal weight gain should be 2 lbs a week, hindi ka naman mukhang lumaki, maliit pa nga tyan mo eh, halika nga silipin natin si baby" Our  baby looks fine according to the ultrasound. And because we were doubtful of my weight, the pregnant assistant checked the weighing scale and found out that it's not in zero base. So I had to re-weigh again, and sigh, I am only 54kilograms (120lbs), a kilo heavier :D Funny, I thought our baby is already big and I do not look like one hehehe....

I tracked my weight every pre-natal visit, here is the chart I have from countdownpregnancy.com

Our Baby's Kick at 33 Weeks and 6 Days

I love to see and feel our baby's kicks inside my tummy. Every time I lie down, I can feel her strong kicks that made my body shake. Our taekwando player inside me :)  



This is our baby girl inside me, kicking her mama strongly:)
I started feeling her movement when I was on my 5th month of pregnancy. It was already strong during that stage. I must document every move she makes because I am going to miss it when she's here with us. Expect to have a very active girl. We love you so much baby!!

Mama Dhi At 8th Month and the Baby Stuff


Photobucket 
and this is me on my 8th month

What actually more exciting aside from seeing your baby during an ultrasound, is buying baby stuff. I am not excited to buy things hehe, I had it last January. All is pink - for our baby girl. I budgeted 3k - 5k only, but because there are things that need to be bought, I actually spent Php10,500. Here they are.

I thought these will not reach 10k, but when I paid the cashier huwaw... X_X I wasn't able to take photo of the baby clothes, the long sleeves, the shirt, the sleeveless, pajamas, panties, baby ties, those are included in 10k of baby stuff. I still need to buy sterilizer and some feeding bottles later.
This is our first baby so why not spend more for her things :) Pero, na excite and napasarap lang siguro ako sa pagso shopping for our baby that's why it is that expensive.

There so much more to tell and share. I'll post it here. By the way, I will be having a urinalysis again on my next visit with Dra. Valdez, and hopefully, my UTI is gone. 

See you soon baby, we love you so much!

V-Time! Clearer Eyesight!

Four days to go and it's Valentine's Day. I am pretty sure that many of you are struggling to think what is the best present to give your partner, boyfirend, girlfriend, friends and love ones. There are many choices though, but why not make it so unique?

If you know your partner is having difficulty seeing things clearly, why think of gift that will not help him or her? Stop giving him or her something like flowers, chocolates, stuff toys and anything like that, make it clearer, give him or her an eyeglasses, let us call it Valentine's Day glasses, not only can he or she see things vividly, he or she will feel very important to you as eyes really matter right?

With this being said, look around and check on the best yet affordable online eyeglasses store. Have you found one yet? If not, I suggest you go over Zenni Optical, online eyeglasses store offering high quality products, it starts at only $6.95 prescription eyeglasses, pretty cheap right? Everyone can afford it, so why not visit Zenni Optical and browse over their eyeglasses, and make it the most unique Valentine's Day present. You will be surely be loved even more!
