Halfway there

My baby and I just turned 20 weeks yesterday, and based on the app I have installed on my iPad, it says that we're already halfway there. Time flies so fast and I couldn't imagine that in a few months, I'd be able to see my precious little one.

Well hello there our lil one! 
Last Feb 14, -- yep Valentines day, I went back to my OB to have my monthly check up. I was scheduled to come back to her on the 15th, but since I've been suffering from backache and some slight cramps; which she suspected as UTI, she advised me to visit her clinic so she could check my urine and do a quick scan on my baby bump.

My urinalysis results came out perfectly okay, but I was advised to drink plenty of fluid. She also told me that I ought to get some good pillow to support my back most especially during work hours. She also did a quick scan on my baby, and she said that Mark and I are having a baby girl! But since ultrasounds are not always right, hubby and I will go back next month to have my gender scan again. ♥ Aside from the "emergency" ultrasound we had which turned out perfectly okay, she also vaccinated me with Tetanus Toxoid & Hepa B.

They say that as soon as the baby in our tummy turns 20 weeks, we'd be able to feel his/her kicks already. I don't know, but in my case, I haven't felt the intense kicks yet. Though once in a while, I've been having this fluttery feeling inside my stomach and slight twitches - and I'm pretty sure that's my baby moving inside me. I just couldn't wait to experience how exactly a kick and somersault feels like. ♥

My growing baby bump

The moment my hubby and I found out that we were pregnant, I promised myself to keep track of my baby bump progress each month. But as months pass by I wasn’t able to take a picture of my growing bump religiously. One of my friends said to me that I should take a picture of my tummy every month on the same room wearing the same outfit to see how the real progress. But since I’m too lazy to do it every month, I just take a picture of my baby bump whenever I want to – and what’s worse is I didn’t even manage to label each pictures with its corresponding weeks. Good thing the phone that I’m using has its date, so I can easily track how far I was when I took that picture.  Hehe! Another thing is that my pictures aren’t that organized, because I use both of my phone and iPad when taking pictures of my baby bump.

So moving forward, I promised to REALLY document my sexiness. LOL! I still have 4 months to enjoy my baby growing inside of me.

Hhhm, to top it off, here are the not so organized pictures I took in front of the mirror. Some were taken in the office restroom. Geez! Too much mirror selfie.

Maxi dress for preggies

I’ve been a fan lately of maxi dresses, and I pretty much enjoy the comfort it gives me every time I wear it; most especially that my baby’s getting bigger each day. Actually, I’ve always wanted to wear dresses, it has been my frustration for quite some time already; but since I am not confident with my thunder thighs at all, I am left with no choice but to wear long tops and jeggings. That’s why I’m so thankful that maxi dresses are in nowadays, that’s why I can enjoy the ease of wearing dresses going to work every day.

So far, I have already collected 5 dresses, and I’m eyeing to buy 5 more. Most of them are imported from Bangkok (well that’s according from the sales lady hehe). Good thing I was able to find a nice store here in Crossing that gives me discount whenever I buy 2 pairs. I also braved the busy streets of Redemptorist road to check if I could find some affordable maxi dresses, but the price range is even higher than the one here in Crossing. 

The reason why I also enjoy wearing this is because my baby bump becomes more prominent. PS: People tend to be nicer to me whenever they see my baby bump. Hehe!
