My baby’s coming out VERY soon
Sep 21st, 2012 by niceyfemme

My I can’t wait. I have been dreaming about having a baby the last fifteen years and it’s finally coming true anytime now.It is overwhelming me to be honest specially since I thought it isn’t even possible for me as I have PCOS. Now I am just waiting for labor to begin. I can’t say I am excited for the labor itself since everybody knows it’s going to be painful but I am excited to the fact that I will soon going to meet and hold my baby in my arms. Just thinking about it makes me cry.

Now I can’t say that I am scared or not scared of labor. I guess my attitude about it is that I have no choice but to go through it anyway so why fret over it? And I have already discussed the use of epidural with my OB and we agreed that by 3-4 cms and when I’m already in active labor then they will allow me to have the epidural. I am just concerned about the pain leading to that 3-4 cms. I might need a dragonfly round silk zafu to use as I meditate through pain. Of course I am going to need all the help I could get since my pain threshold is at ZERO. And did I already mentioned here that I’m not fond of needles as well? This is how much I want to have a baby that I would go through something as scary as this to have one.

Can’t wait to meet you little Joleighta! ♥♥♥

Chicken Macaroni Noodle Soup (Chicken Sopas)
Sep 12th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I’ve been having Sinigang na Baboy way too often that Mommy has been complaining already. I want an ulam with soup that’s why. So I cook Chicken Sopas instead. It’s as filling and healthy as well. I add in lots and lots of veggies.

I feel like a child that’s been allowed to roam freely in the biggest Christmas Store there is whenever I have this. Is it just me or is it the pregnancy hormones? Nevertheless it’s heavenly. It’s nourishes my soul until the next day especially true when we have leftovers of this and I have this for breakfast. YUM.

Saucy Pancit Canton
Sep 12th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I have finally reached that phase where I can’t stop myself from eating. I wasn’t like this in the previous months, just now. And when I want to eat something, I really have to have it. Lately that’s pancit canton for me, the saucy kind. Could have been more perfect if I can have it with chicken liver but no I still can’t eat liver. Bummer.

I have gained too much these past weeks tsk tsk. I can’t wait until we can all see Baby J. And maybe I can feel like myself again. The acme thread observer type of person that I am. Yeah such a weirdo. 🙂

Corn Muffins ala Kenny Rogers Roasters
Sep 3rd, 2012 by niceyfemme

I’ve been having way too much cravings recently now that I am near my due date much more than when I was in my first trimester when I just couldn’t eat. I’ve been trying and rediscovering different foods. One time I ate in Kenny Rogers because I wanted spaghetti but I am sick of Jollibee’s spaghetti which was my go to spaghetti. I ordered a combo meal which came with the muffin and to my delight, it was the muffin that I enjoyed the most and not the spaghetti which disappointed me a bit. There was a time in college when I loved Kenny Rogers’ corn muffin but through the years the quality has declined but now I find myself enjoying it again. Oh can I say that I miss their blueberry muffin as well?

So I made a mental note to try to bake a corn muffin that taste like theirs and buy corn meal. Problem is corn meal isn’t available in the supermarket where there’s one everywhere. I bought a box before in Trinoma and so when I found myself in the area I just had to buy a box asap. (BTW can I just say that in all the malls in the Philippines, Trinoma has the most expensive parking fee I have encountered. Grrrr)

I found two seemingly alike recipes online. Read the rest of this entry »
