35 Weeks!

It's been a very busy October, and I just realized that I am now on my 35th week! A few more weeks to go and I'm so ready to pop!

Almost all of  Rocco's stuff are in place already, thanks to very generous family who's been showering us with endless gifts, but  I have yet to start preparing the hospital bag and birth documents.

We've had visitors since last week. My Papa came, then my in-laws just went home from a week-long visit, then we have Sieg's cousins coming over this weekend. Next week, my whole family, together with the kiddos are coming to spend the long weekend with us.

As soon as they're all back home, we will be in full baby-mode.

So how am I doing on my 35th week? Simply put..I'm really feeling pregnant.

I couldn't sleep well, because the baby keeps on waking me up. I'm a right side sleeper, so I feel a constant shortness of breath when I sleep on my right side.

I pee more! As in more! I have to make sure that the places I go to have CRs or else, I will have to put on a diaper because I can't contain my pee :)

My feet just started to swell, and they call it pregnancy edema. I think my toes look funny and cute, but the sad part is, I can't wear my shoes anymore.

I sweat a lot, and I always feel hot. Even when I'm taking a bath, I can feel sweat trekking through my skin. I won't survive without aircon or electric fan.

Because I sweat a lot, I keep catching a cold. I'm sick again, but thank God I felt better with just a few days of rest.

Other than that, I feel so A-OK.  Let's see how the next weeks would go. Every week is becoming a challenge for me with all the changes I'm going through. Hopefully, I can get through all these with flying colors :)

Till the next week! :)

How Am I Doing at 33 Weeks?

My baby is making his presence felt every day. From his kicks and somersaults, to my growing tummy, it always gives me a warm feeling to have this tiny being inside of me.

I am on my 33rd week going on my 34th this Friday. My pocket pregnancy tracker tells me that:
1. He is 17 to 19 inches long already
2. He weighs around 4.5 lbs
3. He could still grow an inch next week!

Let's see how our baby is actually doing after I'm done with my OB checkup this Friday.

For the mommy (that's me!):

1. Insomnia will strike more.
I am not feeling this because I'm asleep as soon as I hit the bed because of exhaustion from work.

2. More midnight trips to the bathrooms.
I have my CR trip before I go to bed. Sometimes I wake up early morning to take a pee. Usually, it can hold off till I wake up.

3. Frequent leg cramps.
I've had a lot of this lately. Banana to the rescue!

4. Hearburn.
I eat light meals spread throughout the day so I haven't experienced heartburn yet.

5. Uncomfortable while sleeping.
I feel this when I lie down longer on the right side. I always try to sleep on the left side, but I always wake up on the right side.

6. Constipation.
Thanks to my high fiber and liquid intake, I haven't experienced pregnancy constipation yet!

I try to have my daily walk, either during lunchtime or after dinner, but I get so "hingal" lately because of this watermelon-sized tummy that I'm carrying.

A few more weeks to go and we'll be seeing this cute bundle of joy. Happy (and tiring) days are coming!

Our 1st Year Civil Wedding Anniversary

Tomorrow, October 8, Sieg and I will celebrate our 1st year civil wedding anniversary. Time flies so fast. I vividly remember that day. We took an early trip to Tacloban, rested a bit when we got home, and then headed off to the judge who officiated the ceremony. It was very simple and intimate, just family and a very few close friends. We didn't even invite many people to our dinner celebration at home.

Here are a few snapshots :)

It was very quick!

Saying our vows!

Blooper! I forgot to remove my sporty watch :)

Judge Bitas :)
Cheers to a happy married year that passed! I'm so blessed to have Siegfred in my life. He is simply the best, and I love him in many ways I cannot even explain :) Now, we look forward to being a family, with I├▒igo Rocco making his grand entrance soon.

To infinity and beyond!

My Baby Boy :)

We had an ultrasound last weekend, and I'm happy to say that Baby Rocco is now in vertex position! Yeeey! He is head down, but still high-lying, so I need to walk some more in preparation for his grand entrance.

Seeing our baby in an ultrasound is overwhelming. It calms my nerves knowing that our baby is normal and healthy. We got a bonus because Baby Rocco showed his face! :)

Everyone in the family says he's my look-alike. Look at the lips! Hahaha! :) Daddy Sieg is not contesting, but let see when Baby Rocco comes out.

Who will be his actual look-a-like? :)
