Baby Update

i want to thank God that by this time, my third month (Yay!),
the morning sickness is almost gone.
although i still can't have my stomach suuuuuper full.
i can only eat smaller meals but more frequently, according to my ob-gyne.


i had my first "official" prenatal check-up last 20 June. i'm so lucky to have found a filipina ob-gyne here in UAE as it is much difficult dealing with doctors who are not "kabayan". during the check-up, i had my blood tests done and also an ultrasound scan.

for the second time, i saw my little angel with tiny legs and arms. the head was already showing too! i was super ecstatic. my little angel is already 9 weeks 5 days & already 3 centimeters in length (wow!), according to the scan. and my expected due date is on 22 January next year, plus/minus ten days. can't wait for you to come out little angel!

i was prescribed prenatal multivitamins, Duphaston (pampakapit) and Navidoxine, which i can take if i feel like throwing up again. in my mind, i have to gain as much weight as i can. i know it's a bit difficult since i'm still having "morning sickness".

next check-up will be next week!


we also have to find a prenatal milk for me. Anmum!!!! i thought it's easy to look for this one. but hey, this is the Middle East and Philippines is like miles miles away. we can't find Anmum anywhere. some of the supermarkets that Hubby called almost everyday for like 3 weeks always have the same line of excuses.

"Dubai Customs blocked the Anmum shipment. Maybe we'll have them next week...blah blah blah...."


Last night, after almost two months of searching, we found an alternative for Anmum which is called Daily Mill. Hubby found it in a pharmacy some two blocks away from our building. had the first taste before going to bed. i'm not the powdered-milk type of person but it was good enough naman. Chocolate flavor kase. =)


i need to shop for a new wardrobe! i should have done the shopping last weekend but my laziness is on the highest level that day. i even rejected the idea of watching Transformers 3 that day.

anyways, my office pants won't fit me anymore!

would you believe? right now i am wearing my gray pinstriped pants for work and it's unbuttoned and unzipped!


i used a safety pin just to pull it together. anyways, my top is long enough for people not to take a peek of what the color of my undergarment is.

cenxa nah....all my leggings are up for laundry and i just forgot about them last weekend!

i'm setting this errand as high priority to-do after work. as in, seriously!

Hubby: The Jinx Master

Last night conversation with hubby:

hubby: Bakit nagdadownload ka na naman ng The Corrs? Di ba andami ng ganyan sa phone mo? (Why are you downloading songs of The Corrs again? So many of their songs are already on your phone, right?)

yummybite: ***no answer***

hubby: Sabi ko bakit yan na naman dinadownload mo? (I said, why are you still downloading them?)

yummybite: Eh di ba nasira last year yung phone ko kaya nabura lahat? (My phone crashed last year so the songs were deleted.)

hubby: Wag ka na lang kasi magdownload. Magkakavirus pa yung laptop eh. (Don't download anymore. Our laptop might caught some virus.)

yummybite: Namiss ko na sila eh. Basta! (Yiih! I miss them so much!)

hubby: Sa My Music natin meron namang The Corrs eh. (In the My Music folder, we have some of their songs.)

yummybite: Tatlo lang na kanta yata. (There are only three songs, I think.)

hubby: Pwede na yon. Mavavirus tayo nyan. Careless ka pa naman. (That's enough already. The virus will get into our computer with your carelessness.)

yummybite: Heh! Ang kulit mo naman eh. Di nga mavavirus. Kuleeettt!!!! (Stop pestering me! There will be no virus!)

then a pop-up window from the anti-virus software came up flashing infront of me with that disturbing "police-like" sound, saying:

"Malware Alert! Recommended Action: Repair blah blah blah...."

hubby: O ano? Kulit mo kasi eh.

yummybite: Oo nah. Quiet na ko. Jinx ka talaga.
