Happy Father’s Day Daddy Pork! We Love you!
Last Sunday, we celebrated Father’s Day starting off with a mass at St. Bernadette Church. At the end of the mass, all the fathers were asked to stand up for a special blessing. Naturally, Daddy Pork stood up and got the blessing. I was praying for him when the priest was blessing them. I wanted him to have good health, becasue he will be the one to take care of us. I also prayed that he will get all that he wishes! Doms is a great husband and I’m sure he will be a great Daddy Pork too!
After the mass, we went to Gerry’s Grill Singapore to eat lunch. It was a great lunch! We ordered Pinakbet, Inihaw na Liempo and Sinigang. Our total bill was just 34 SGD so we were happy that we didn’t spend too much.
Then, we went to Plaza Singpura because Daddy Pork wanted to buy shoes. There was a sale at the Ever Best store and he bought 2 new leather and porma shoes for 99 SGD. Good deal!
I asked Daddy pork if we can look for the Eskimo Pearl Milk Tea store and we did find it. I ordered the Hazelnut Milk tea. Dream come true!
Afternoon came and we just stayed at home. Daddy Pork made this ham and cheese sandwich that we loved! It was a simple merienda but we loved it so much becasue Daddy Pork made it.
Next year, Father’s Day will be extra special because Baby Pork will be with us as we celebrate it. I’m excited!
Doms and I love to celebrate the tiniest event or milestone in our lives. Naturally, we were bound to do something during Mother’s Day.
We were thinking of eating somewhere in VivoCity because I wanted to check the “baby” stores there. Our first choice was Carnivore All-Meat Buffet. The food was enticing but we didn’t like that much for that night and the price per person was so steep.
So, we decided to eat at Chili’s in Resorts World Sentosa.

Our appetizer of Fried Cheese (10SGD) came in first .It was so good! Then my Ribs and Chicken Rack (35 SGD) came in. This meal was good for sharing but Doms still ordered separately. He ordered Western something burger (23 SGD). It wsa so huge with large strips of bacon and fries. I didn’t try the burger because it looked so filling but sure ate the fries!
Doms didn’t have the problem of finishing his food. He has issues with wasted food.
After our great dinner, we went back to VivoCity to do some baby stuff window shopping. Yup! That’s our new hobby now! Then, we ate dessert at Awfully Chocolate. Now I know the reason why I got a migraine that night!
Anyway, it was a fun-filled night spent bonding with Doms. It was also a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day!
We’re now 13 weeks and my iPhone app was kinda implying that the coming weeks will be better than my past weeks.
I really hope so! My first 3 months was a mess. I hated any food that I cooked and I always curse our neighbor for cooking onions in the morning! Doms and I always eat out for my firt three months of pregnancy and it was not easy in the budget.
Our Pinas vacation landed on my 11th week so I cannot stand the smell of Chicken Joy and garlic rice! I used to love these food and now I hated them.
Anyway, we went to the doctor last week and look how Baby Pork looks like!
My defining moment started when I cooked Sinigang na Hipon for dinner last week. I paired it up with the Fatless Tocino that we bought from Pinas and I loved it! It was actually the first time in 3 months that I loved our dinner and what I cooked.
The next few days were a breeze because I wasn’t that picky with food anymore. My energy in cooking our dinner also went back so I brought home cooked meals to work as well.
Everything went well until last night.
I had a headache when I woke so I went back to sleep. When I woke up, the headache was gone so I went to the doctor for check up and MC. I ate IKEA Chocolate Mousse for lunch and that started the stomach ache. I hated it! It was a full force stomache that made me worry.
Luckily, after drinking lots of water and going to the toilet, I flushed the Stomach Bug away.
This morning when I woke up, I’m still a little fazed at what happened the previous day. But I had to go to work. So, I did.
I hate that I’m doing this. Posting my blog secretly and locking the posts that I don’t want to show yet. Well, at least by Sunday we can tell everyone about our bundle of joy already.
So, the other day, I got a big mail from Dumex Singapore. One of my colleagues told me to register to the Dumex and Abbott sites so that I can get freebies and other informational guide regarding my pregnancy. So I did register.
My first gift package from Abbott was mentioned in my previous blog post and I was very happy for my second gift package from Dumex.
I got another pack of Dumex Mom Milk, Head Gear, Baby Bib, and Palmer’s Products.
Oh and I forgot about the infant Drypers! Haha! Doms was playing with the Drypers pack and he was putting it in my belly telling BabyPork “This is for you, this is for you!”
The Palmer’s products were very useful because I got dry skin now. We’re so excited to share the news to everybody already!
Of course we’re excited to welcome Baby Pork already. I can’t wait to know if he’s a boy or if she’s a girl.
Well, I really can’t explain well what I’ve been up to lately. The other day, Doms and I went to Thomson Women’s Clinic for my “real” 2nd pre-natal check-up. I was nervous and excited at the same time. The doctor said that we should be hearing our baby’s heartbeat for this week.
But because I’m praning of what some of my N@Wie friends and some office mates, I was terrified! Good thing my Doms was with me.
The doctor didn’t use transvaginal ultrasound this time. She used the actual ultrasound thingy. She first placed the gel like substance in my tummy then the ultrasound of our baby appeared.
Our Baby Pork at 8 Weeks and 4 Days
It was so different from the previous ultrasound! Our baby kinda have a shape already. I was laughing because I can’t believe what I’m seeing. Truly, God is powerful!
Then, Dr. Wendy asked us to look at the clicking thing on our baby and she said it was the heart and it was beating. Doms saw it right away. Me, I had a hard time seeing it. Dr. Wendy turned-on the microphone of the ultrasound and we heard it! Our baby’s heart beat. It was fast and the first thing on my mind was to record it. Haha! It was the greatest feeling in the world! Knowing that someone, our baby, is growing inside me! It brought tears to my eyes.
The doctor congratulated us and gave us more instructions on how to take care of the baby. She gave me a bottle of prenatal vitamins and she handed me lots of “mommy milk” packs for me to try.
It was a great appointment with the doctor! My due date was moved to 21 October 2012. I can’t wait for my next check-up during our Pinas vacation! I read that our baby is growing fast at this time and I want to see him or her always.
