Pregnancy Diary: 34 Weeks

Baby Bump - 34 Weeks
Pregnancy Diary: 34 Weeks and 4 Days (November 1)

Diary Entry | 28 October 2015

My first consultation at Shiphrah Bahay Paanakan! Since it’s located in Taytay Rizal and we live in Cavite City, we woke up and left really early like 5AM. We arrived past 7AM which is good because we were asked to be there by 8AM. When we got there, there were only 2 moms waiting. I was anxiously observing their “system”. I saw a record book with 2 categories: Graduate and Non-graduate, and I listed my name under Graduate not knowing exactly what are they referring to. Haha. Apparently Graduate category is for those moms who are finished with Shiphrah’s 10 seminars. So I quickly changed my listing to Non-Graduate.

There’s a lot of waiting time and we’re clueless as to how our visit there would pan out. At around 830AM, the 2 moms who I first met asked us to go to the seminar area. Apparently there’s a bible study first before the seminar. We patiently sat down and listened although good thing I personally didn’t feel violated about this. Right after the bible study, one midwife — Ate Belle, greeted us, who will conduct the seminar.

It’s the batch’s 5th seminar and it’s only our first! It’s the perfect timing though because the seminar topic is childbirth! During the seminar there’s this foreigner photographer/videographer who was covering the talk and the attendees. We were in front so I’m pretty sure we were captured on film for the most part. After the seminar, non-graduates were asked to go inside to lineup for our prenatal checkup.

November Beginnings

There’s always something special at the beginning of a month, much more so if you are an avid fan of the ber months like me. Due to my hectic lifestyle and some annoying pregnancy symptoms, I was not able to “celebrate” the arrival of September. Even then, I am determined to welcome my most favorite month of all, November.

A lot of occasions are in store for us starting this month onwards.

My November Affairs

2nd year wedding anniversary. I could not believe it’s already been 2 years! All of our milestones happened during November in the past years — 2012: Husband proposed to me on my birthday; 2013: We tied knot; 2014: We celebrated our first year wedding anniversary; and this 2015: I might give birth to our firstborn. *my heart melts*

1st public speaking engagement. I was recently invited by a huge hospital to talk about “positively embracing pregnancy”. The doctor who organizes these events for moms saw my blog articles documenting my pregnancy journey and said she got inspired. I am beyond nervous and ecstatic! I need to focus on creating my talk outline to ensure that I only share the best tips or lessons I gathered for the past 8 months of pregnancy!

Thanksgiving birthday. I am not the type to throw a birthday party for myself, but this year is an exception. It’s still not going to be a big party, but I am planning for an intimate gathering of families and friends whom I am thankful for.

Baby shower or welcome baby shower (if baby’s already born in this world!), which will coincide with my Thanksgiving birthday! We are planning a special little shower for our baby in the company of both our families and closest friends.

With that said, I cannot hide my excitement!!! I have been Pinterest-ing for the past couple of days and it’s time to try and make my vision a reality. *hopeful smiles*
