This was the week when we announced about our pregnancy! We were overwhelmed with the congratulatory greetings and messages of support. It felt good to finally spill the beans and let it all out as we basked into this new found happiness and purpose.

20 weeks also means that we are on our halfway mark, a milestone worthy to be celebrated with a little cupcake!

Palmier cookie

my mood:

I was pretty much in a happy mood the entire week. And since there was this new-found energy, I frequented the kitchen to practice my cooking skills. There’s no better feeling than to see my B devoured what I prepared for him up to the last bite! Also, it seems like I already felt my baby kicked! I’m not so sure yet but it felt like a little someone fluttered in my belly. *teehee*

my symptoms:

Insomnia. I started having trouble sleeping. It seems hard to find a comfortable position to sleep in even with the help of my pregnancy pillow sometimes. Toss and turn is the name of the game!

Headache. My most hated symptom. An extra sleep does help though.

Hip and lower back pain. They are persistent which is why I’m considering getting a prenatal massage soon.

Abdominal itchiness. I have been meaning to start applying oil, cream or lotion but I haven’t gotten my hands on Bio-oil yet, which was recommended by my OB.

Increased energy. Hence the rise of my kitchen diva-self and emcee diva-self. Which is why I accepted this voice-over talent work for SM Dare To Denim campaign held in SM Southmall.

White discharge. I’m in the market for a longer pantyliner.

Constipation / bloating. This is when I’m loving my oatmeal.

Leg cramps. It’s a good way to wake you up, like an espresso shot.

Cravings. I’ve been craving for cupcakes this week and I’ve tried two — Spoonful Cakes and Pastries and Larissa’s Love Cupcakes and Desserts

This week was kind of eventful one with a road trip to Pampanga to attend my B’s bestie’s birthday. We also squeezed in a route to check out MSM American Surplus, which we thought still had a branch in Pampanga, only to be broken-hearted when we saw the empty space they were once situated in. After the merriment of that birthday celebration, we went to MSM’s branch along Edsa-GMA for my thrifting-fix. I cannot not get my fix!

baby’s size:

Crepe Suzette!

my mood:

I’ve been generally a happy camper or should I say a happy preggy camper with no or minimal mood swings except a little annoyance on some of my symptoms.

my symptoms:

Hip and lower back pain. As per my OB, now is the time to learn how to sleep on my side with knees bent. This relieves back pain and prevents shortness of breath. A pregnancy pillow I got recently really helped me in getting a good night’s sleep.

Pregnancy brain. Apparently in my case, pregnancy-induced brain fog is true. I can forget even the most common part of my daily routine, or the next word to complete my sentence.

Appetite decrease. This is the most unusual symptom I had especially because I’m known to be a foodie.

Skin changes. Skin discoloration or darkening around my neck, underarms and linea negra on my belly.

One of the major reasons why I started this blog was to document special and memorable aspects of my life, which started with my little dates with my B when we were still dating as well as when we were planning for our wedding and marriage. And now, I am so excited to be starting this new chapter of our lives together as parents-to-be! What a better way to celebrate that than to document it here and share with you, our families and friends, who have been following our little corner here. I’m so ecstatic for our little family of two to start growing and to look back on this special journey and be amazed with every little detail that would probably be forgotten when things get a little chaotic once our baby is born.

a croissant!

my mood:

I’ve been ravenous! My appetite for food increased or let’s say went back to normal. Headaches have been re-appearing in the scene lately.

my symptoms:

Vivid dreams, cravings, abdominal ache and pains, headaches, leg cramps, linea negra, backache, forgetfulness, bloating, breast engorgement, constipation
