Thank you so much for all the warm words and positivity! They warm my heart (and Timmy’s too!)!
Thank you to the blogging Moms who’ve so kindly shared advice on taking care of myself and the baby. Special shoutouts to the Plurkers.
To my friends who are TTC (trying to conceive), there is hope! When H and I stopped planning several years ago and just “planned to not plan,” it was a great break for my body from medication and emotional stress. People kept telling me the baby would come “in God’s time.” I believe that now. I don’t think anyone’s 100% ready for a baby, but we sure are more ready for Timmy’s arrival than we were years ago. Miracles do happen.
I have a bunch of food posts on the backburner but believe it or not, I can’t stand the pictures! It’s weird, I know, but the sight of food makes me want to hurl. The food posts will have to wait! I’ll publish them soon.
I’m at work right now, fighting nausea and the urge to lie down. This reminds me of what my grandma said when I told her I was pregnant:
Grandma: “… and don’t make sudden moves! Carry yourself well.”
Me: “Yes, Maymee.”
Grandma: “And Toni?”
Grandma: “If you can leave work, leave work.”
I’m sure she didn’t mean leave work for the day since I wasn’t at work when I told her… Heehee. Pregnancy and the careerwoman — just another thing I’ll learn to adjust to!
Cravings! I craved for Bistek Tagalog a lot last week. Thanks to my Dad who drove all the way to Batangas to get the Batangas Bistek I craved for, heehee. Awww, cheers to the love of fathers (and grandfathers!). Other than Bistek, I haven’t been craving for anything in particular. I do know that I hate tuna, fried chicken, the aroma of garlic and cheese pizza.
Thank you again for all the prayers and the warm wishes. I’ll have the regular food updates up and running soon. And yes, pregnancy updates too! I happily continue to take my wifely steps, but even more eagerly begin my momly steps.
