I haven’t met you but I already love you
Jul 25th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Is what I tell the baby inside my tummy. It’s such an overwhelming feeling in many dimensions if that is the word. Every time she moves, it’s like she’s caressing my heart. I feel closer and closer to her. From the moment I learned that I am pregnant I already felt protective over her and even more now.

My favorite past time is watching my tummy move. Haha I can’t describe how she does it. But my tummy starts round in shape then the moment she moves my tummy becomes misshapen… Sometimes it kind of makes me nervous as well. Well this is the first time that something/ someone is moving inside my body and I have no control over her at all. At the same time it is a feeling of relief as her movements assures me that she’s fine and healthy and she’s happy. My OBG said that it’s actually good when she moves a lot it means she’s happy inside my tummy.

Now I’m a week shy of my 8th month and sleeping has become a struggle. I have to pee way too many times at night. Plus her movements wake me up as well. It’s like she’s massaging my insides haha. I love you baby… We can’t wait to meet you. Your papa, mama, daddy and mommy are all very excited to hold you in our arms. I can’t wait to start our lives with you in it.

Is how it feels like for me when my baby kicks. Sometimes the baby’s movements will catch me off guard but it’s a welcome surprise. I love that feeling. Now it’s like I have a more concrete evidence that my baby is there, moving. Before I only get to see the baby move and feel assured that the baby’s ok during ultrasound. So far I had two. First and second times was to find the heartbeat. Ooh that tormented me but that’s over now and I’m happy. My baby’s so active even at this very young age.

In 3 weeks time, my husband and I will have another ultrasound, that one’s to finally know the gender of the baby. I can’t wait to know! Well I guess there’s no surprise there that I’m so eager since patience is not one of my strengths. 🙂 So it’s a good thing we can finally know soon. To have to wait almost 5 more months to know my baby’s gender would be very hard on me. Hmmmn I really can’t wait to know. A boy or a girl? I need to know! 🙂

Pregnancy Cravings
Apr 20th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Is crazy! I can’t say what I like and what I can and cannot eat. It’s so hard. Forgive me for complaining but this is really difficult for me and to be honest, I feel like it has kicked me out of my comfort zone. See, food used to be my comfort zone. Now, I lost it. This pregnancy has made me feel like I have healthy trim side effects I am experiencing all day everyday since the moment I learned I am pregnant.

One of the thoughts that has helped me get through from day to another is the assurance given to me by my Mom and OB-Gyn, that the moment I pass through my first trimester, I’d feel much better and I’d be able to eat well to the point that I will have to stop myself. Hmmmn… I’m passed my first trimester and I feel much better but not when it comes to food. I have really bad food aversions and I have more of it than the foods I can eat. Did I mention that I still can’t cook? Whewww! This is the longest break I have from cooking.

I guess I just have to wait until things get better.

Pregnancy and Food
Apr 17th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Wow, I am back. It’s been a long hiatus. I don’t know, maybe it’s because I had a bout of not being able to eat that I had no energy for anything else, including writing in this blog. But now as I am already in my second trimester and feeling much, much better, I am back. I feel like I am 80% of my old self again.

So, pregnancy and food. It hasn’t been a walk in the park for me when it comes to food and eating ever since I learned I am pregnant. Since my 6th week, I started to have food aversions, and what’s worse it i can’t stand the food that I used to love. I even stayed in Singapore thinking this pregnancy would make me eat like a pig and what happened? I wasn’t able to stand any food, and I starved to the point that I was crying everyday because of hunger. And now that I feel much better, I can eat better but I still don’t like rice. I used to love rice all my life, until pregnancy happens. Now I just eat it because I have to.

Another thing is about the food that I was able to eat. I was only able to eat the stuff that I stayed away from before. Like pork and beef, and lots of sweet stuff. It’s just the opposite of myself. Also, now I’m craving for the things I wasn’t particularly fond of, like coffee. Now I want it, so much that I’m thinking of having my own. I can’t stop looking at starbucks coffee makers. But I can ony have decaf.

A big surprise to me is that I eat less now. I’m contented with just enough food and I even have to force myself to eat more whereas before I constantly have to stop myself from eating waayyy too much. I guess it’s a good thing as I don’t want to be as big as Jessica Simpson. We are about the same height so I can’t imagine if I get as big as her. Plus I don’t have all her money to help me get back to my pre-pregnancy shape, so better be careful Niceyfemme.

Birthing experience… whoa!
Sep 29th, 2009 by niceyfemme

Here’s Giselle Sanchez Buencamino giving birth to her second baby…

You have to give it to Giselle for giving birth with no anesthesia at all…

This is through the Lamaze method…

Lamaze method of childbirth – a method that prepares a mother for natural childbirth; the pregnant woman (in classes and at home) practices (usually with the help of a coach) and learns about the physiology of childbirth and techniques of relaxation, concentration, and breathing

effleurage – a rhythmic stroking; “effleurage of the abdomen is used in the Lamaze method of childbirth”
natural childbirth – labor and childbirth without medical intervention; no drugs are given to relieve pain or aid the birth process; “natural childbirth is considered the safest for the baby”

Btw, the baby’s a boy.. named Zappa…. Cute baby… lots of hair, like me when I was born hehehe…

Oh you have to push that hard and that long????

Scary….

heide

Just bump into Heide Klum in the red carpet in the 61st Annual Emmy Awards. ehhehhehe

She’s always been gorgeous and svelte.

She’s about to pop next month and after I saw this photo I was a little scared I admit. It’s huge! Her bump is huge.

I guess I have this weird something wherein I dont feel comfortable seeing really big tummies. Saw some videos of pregnant women with multiple births and I cant look at them longer than 4 seconds….

another big one….

Ok then….. wheww!
