Yes! I am big and round and really really reaaaalllly pregnant right now! I’ve been putting off writing about my 2nd pregnancy until the little bub and I reach 28 weeks which is already a safe point in the pregnancy. According to my OB, the fetus at that stage is now “viable” — such a technical and safe word to describe the life growing inside me :p anyway I didn’t want to preempt anything because I’m mapamahiin like that) so I waited for 28 weeks to come and added a week more for good measure 🙂
It’s been a fast 29 weeks mainly because when BDW and I was able to confirm my pregnancy via TVS, 13 weeks along na pala! I practically skipped the first trimester!
I missed counting by 4 weeks because I had my period in February. Turns out, it could have been implantation bleeding. This scared me to hell but thankfully the baby is ok. The nausea and exhaustion I was feeling that I attributed to work-related super stress was actually my all-day sickness already.
It’s been a rough and tumble journey so far. My first pregnancy with DW was definitely easier. This one is…hay naku ang dami kong kwento! Pero I’ll save it for other posts 😉 I am however sharing my daily pregnancy journey over at the Anmum Mommy Circle facebook page. I’m the page’s guest community manager and the page has really grown over the past few months since it went live. If you’re pregnant like me or trying to get pregnant or know someone who is expecting,the community is very helpful. We have resident doctors and nutritionists who can answer all your questions and qualms about pregnancy. I’m also an avid Anmum mom because Anmum Materna has been part of my daily diet when I was pregnant with DW (who now calls himself Kuya!) and now with Baby number 2 🙂 Hope to see you at the page!
