What's happening.'s been a while...I've been hit with tamaditis syndrome ... I really got some short thoughts to blog but as I've said...felt soooooo lazy to write them..

by this time, I'm on my 7th week and I feel really awful during the night as morning sickness attacks.... ang hirap pala maglihi talaga. It's sad Jerry was back to Baler and now I'm alone. When I get home from office, I just asked family members to bring me some dinner since I don't want to cook... haay..hirap mag isa in situations such as this...

Last week I went on panic. I got very light brown discharge and Jerry was so panicky too. I immediately texted my OB pero she said not to worry naman. I'll just oberve if it will continue then I have to go to her clinic immediately. Good thing, the next day wala na..until now. Jerry seems to be hard on me lately also... makulit din daw kasi ako. Sometimes he doesn't want to give me my cravings lalo na kung bawal sakin. Nagtatampo na nga ko sometimes... Well anyway, I know naman that what he's doing is for my benefit...and the baby. I digress.

Last week, our company had our annual Business Planning and this time, it was held in Tagaytay. It was just an overnight stay but its good that we we're able to experienced fresh air.

OB visit

Saturday. It was my schedule for a first visit to my OB-Gyn and guess what.. I was like a child asking questions to my sisters. I felt really nervous...asking myself questions like what's gonna happen?.... What will she do to me?... Is is too early for a visit? Am I really pregnant??? whew! I am really a first timer huh!?!

My schedule was 4 pm. We were there 10 minutes earlier. I was with hubby and older sister. I was weighed, then the nurse checked on my BP, filled up a form then asked us to wait. We waited for the doctor. She came in 4:45pm.

Dra. Janine Tan was really a good OB-gyn. She's my sister's doc and she's so maalaga and mabait with her patients. She's also beautiful. :)

We were called to come in. Guess what she asked first??? my AGE!... she could not believe I was 27! hehehe. Then she asked if I did home preg test, (I said yes) when was the last day of my period(As far As I can recall...ooopps dapat accurate.. I said Sept. 5) , then she calculated and told us that I was on my 6th week and my due date would possibly fall either last week of May or 1st week of June (I used the i-net
due date calculator to compute and my possible due is June 9th 2006). Then she asked me to lie-down and led my hand to where my uterus is and told me that the baby is still unnoticeable and just a size of a rice grain.

After that, she gave me prescription of vitamins and the food I need to eat and what not to eat, and some precautions. The first trimester is critical kasi. She also gave me the schedule of my next visits.

Well, it was great. I will have an ultra sound and urine testing before my next visit. Jerry promised to be with me every time I go to my doc.

Now, I started reading books ("What to Expect When You're Expecting), and browsing internet sites about pregnancy.

We are really thankful that God answered our prayers. He has entrusted in our hands a new life... I will need to be extra careful now.

His reaction.

Last night I told my husband about it. Well, not really "told" as in saying a word right to his face. I just gave him the test (gadget).... nagtampo kasi ako sa kanya. He went mad kasi masungit daw ako kakadating pa lang niya from Baler... not a nice salubong daw, hmp! So I walked out.. but before I left, I gave him the test. I went upstairs. Pag baba ko, He make lambing to me na.

You know what??? he was sooooooooo happy! (I knew he would be). He has forgotten all about his anger and my sungit moments! He immediately sent text messages to his friends, brothers and sisters, parents and our ninongs and ninangs...To everyone! If he can text the whole world, he will! (that's exagerating).

See how excited he was?? hehehe.

Two pink stripes.

I don't understand why everyone around me seem to be so excited to know if I already have little Mhay or little Jerry in my tummy. They're even more excited than me! Everyday when I go to the office canteen, the server would ask "meron na ba ma'am?". Yesterday, as I was getting my order, she asked again, "ma'am, iba aura nyo ngayon, cguro buntis na kayo noh? Ang ganda nyo ngayon eh." I thought, talaga nga ba? Bakit ngayon lang ako maganda? (hehehe). Then some of my friends would ask, "wala pa rin ba? ang tagal naman" Haaaaayyy...what's the matter with this people???

Well...honestly, I already had the feeling...since I'm 5 days delayed already. be sure, I did my own investigation (ala JB 007 huh!)

I start observing my self. Of course...I did my research! I start looking for the early symptoms, di naman ako malakas kumain.. but some say I gained weight. I get so irritated easily and I feel like throwing up in the morning (but nothing comes out). There were times when I feel a little dizzy, I urinate frequently, I go to the restroom alot of times...I start craving for eggplant fritata (tortanf talong)! Pero di ko naman kinakain.

Last night, I asked my sister to buy me the kit.

Today...I think I can confirm... I saw two pink stripes!!

the evidence!.....

From Ophra

I'm currently reading Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul-- very inspiring indeed. As I was reading, I chanced upon an article and thought of sharing it to you....

here it goes....

Be a queen. Dare to be different. Be a pioneer. Be a leader. Be the kind of woman who in the face of adversity will continue to embrace life and walk fearlessly toward the challenge. Take it on! Be a truth seeker and rule your domain, whatever ti is-- your home, your office, your family -- with loving heart.

Be a queen. Be tender. Continue to give birth to new ideas and rejoice in your womanhood... My prayer is that we will stop wastine time being mundane and mediocre... We re daughters of God-- here to teach the world how to love...

it doesn't matter what you've been through, where you come from, who your parents are -- nor your social or economic status. None of that matters. What matters is how you choose to love, how you choose to express that love through your work, through your family, through what you have to give to the world...

Be a queen. Own your power and your glory!

truly inspiring.
