7 weeks with Burning Acidity

I have been suffering from too much acidity and gases. This is really killing me and making me feel depressed during my pregnancy. My doctor didn't want to give me anything for the gases nor for the acidity :( ... says the lesser the medicine I take, the better. I have to try to put up with it for now... and if not, then I can go back and we can talk again... oh well, I wouldn't want to take anything that can harm my little one either so, what else to do, but just endure it for now. My hubby needs to put up with my crying and bad mood too at the same time, he's too worried and yet there is really nothing that can be done... I can feel his frustrations as those are my very own frustrations too plus the queasiness, acidity and gases.

You see my little one, Mami is trying to put up with all this just to make you safe and healthy... so promise me, you'll hold on tight, ok? I know you are strong my dear small one. Mami and Papi loves you so much.

Mother's Words for the New Mom To Be

Today I made an overseas call with my mom. She asked me how am I doing with my first trimester of pregnancy. I told her I am experiencing the normal symptoms, morning sickness, etc but what's difficult most of the time is the vomiting. She told me not to worry about anything as everything will be fine. The most touching part was when she told me these words:

When I was pregnant with you, I was under so much stress... I was going through so much problems and difficulties but look at how you came out and look at how you are now. You have been wonderful. You've survived all those stress and difficulties while you were inside my womb because you are strong. So you have nothing to worry. You'll do just fine.

My tears welled up. I miss my mom more.

6th Week!

Today I learned that the actual counting of weeks of pregnancy starts on the first day of the last period... thus, I am already in my 6th week! So my little one should already look like this:

I can't wait for my own ultrasound... and see how my little one actually looks like. I am getting emotional already... well, I am really emotional these days. I cry for now reason at all or everytime I remember my mom, thinking that I'd like her to be here with me. I normally feel a lump in my throat that makes me feel like crying. I think this is what they call hormonal revolution!


I also started to notice that I normally wake up in the middle of the night either because I need to take a bathroom trip or because I am suddenly feeling uneasy. The uneasiness comes from my tummy... it is hard to explain but in an attempt to do so, it's like emptiness in the tummy similar to feeling nervous or anxious. It makes me toss and turn in the bed. This happens twice within the night... around 2 or 3am and then around 5 or 6am. This is weird.


What's up with you my little one? Are you telling mami something?

No Weight Gain

After 14 days, I didn't gain weight. I feel a little bit paranoid. I read that in the first trimester, I should be gaining from 0.5 to 2.2kg. But it has been 14 days since the last time I weighed, and yet no weight gain! Not a single gram.

My friends who have been pregnant were telling me that it's normal and there's nothing to worry about it. I just couldn't help it. I think I should stop reading articles about pregnancy for a while so I can rest myself from being paranoid. It's hard not to... there's just so much questions in my mind... so much wonderings... so many things I need to know now. Alright stop.

Little one, I'll just trust that you are there holding on tight and developing at your own pace. Take your time, baby. Mami wants you to be really, really healthy.

It has been 5 days since my husband and I found out we are going to be parents soon. We are still in ecstatic mode. We've been busy telling the good news to our family and friends and we couldn't just stop from smiling. Our family and friends are all very happy and excited for us too. They've been giving us a lot of well wishes.

As for me, I am suffering the normal early pregnancy symptoms. If my calculation is right, I'm a little more than my first month now. The baby is probably 1/6 to 1/4 inch now. My silly hubby calls the baby 'guisante' which in spanish means grean pea. He'd say "You have to take care of the poor guisante..." and so on and so forth.

I have also started to be hyper sensitive. I cry for whatever reason. I always feel like I have a lump in my throat and have the need to cry. These are all very odd to me and yet exciting. These things tell me I really am pregnant :)

I can't wait till we are able to visit the doctor again and get over with all the analysis I have to do. I'd like to know the baby's exact status as soon as possible and start to undergo recommended diet and activities by the doctor.

I can't wait to hear baby's heartbeat! Right now, I do feel my heartbeat becoming stronger and stronger... sometimes I feel like I hear extra heartbeat but perhaps it's just my imagination and excitement for this little life inside me.

Hold on tight, my little one...

Next Phase

Aug 19, 2009 5:47am... the two purple lines did confirm I am on the next phase of my life, and my husband and I are on the next phase of our relationship... we are now forming a family. As I walk through this phase with my husband, here's is something to journal my thoughts and sentiments along the way. It'll be perplexing and exciting journey. I'm pretty sure, I'll be learning a lot from this.

I went out the bathroom and woke up hubby. He knows I'd be doing the test already. He squinted his eyes getting blinded by the light I just turned on. All smiles, I gave him the little pregnancy test. He uttered with a sleepy yet happy voice: Awww baby, estas embarazada! Awww hon, you're pregnant! We hugged and kissed and held each other in the bed.

I tried to go back to sleep but I couldn't. So I went online hoping to see my bestfriend Ayin online. She was not. Then I checked if Dianne, my closest friend from my first job, is online. She wasn't either. I sent her an email asking her to go online and after few minutes, she did go online. I told her the news. She was ecstatic. I was ecstatic. I also sent emails to my girlfriends about the news. After a while, I started to feel sleepy so I went back to bed. Husband was asleep... or so it seemed. Later on in the morning, he mentioned that he couldn't sleep after the news. He was too excited. After breakfast, we started calling his parents and then his sister. And then I called my family in Manila. They were all sooo happy. My mom told me that she just had a novena praying for this bundle of gift to come our life soon and here it is... answered prayer and cannot be any earlier than this!

The rest of the day is full of excitemnt, laughter, teasing and dreaming for my hubby and I. It was just a perfect day.

Inside I was thinking, so this is it. This is finally it is. I am going to the next phase in my life. I am thrilled and nervous at the same time. I know there'll be so much to it. But with my hubby beside me, everything will be alright :)
