I’m on my 14th week of pregnancy and my pregnancy iPhone apps said that my baby is a size of lemon now. It’s kinda exciting because we’re getting nearer and nearer to the day we will finally see our Baby Pork!
The iPhone app also said I should be showing my baby bump a little. I don’t see it yet.
When I’m on my way to work, nobody has gotten up yet and give their seat to me because I’m pregnant. Well, this is a steep order considering that I’m in Singapore.
Anyway, Doms told me that we will have a mini studio shoot at home to celebrate our Baby Pork’s 15 weeks or 3 months and 3 weeks. I’m searching online for some ideas on we can do this shoot. I hope we get great photos!
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.
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.
