According to BabyCenter, I’m on my 6th week. Next week will be my second visit to the OB. I did a little research about her on some parenting forums and looks like she’s okay. She’s affiliated with Chinese General Hospital, based from the reviews, hospital rates there are pretty reasonable. If money and location is not a problem, I would have chosen The Medical City but hospital rates shoot up to a hundred thousand and it’s too far from Caloocan.
Anxiety of giving birth still crosses my mind from time to time, but I calm myself that I will get through this pregnancy day by day. I’m so lucky that I seldom experience “morning sickness”. I had bouts of nausea from time to time and dizziness whenever I’m hungry. I got to vomit once but I think my hyperacidity is the culprit. As for food cravings, I have none… this is really surprising because I have a voracious appetite! When I wasn’t expecting, I already planned what to eat for merienda right after we had brunch, but now, I find it hard to think about food to eat. I just eat because I have to, not because I want that food. I easily get tired, I know I have to take naps but I’m not used to sleeping in the office. So my nap time is around 6 pm to 9 pm after we reach home.
Perhaps the most struggle I’m experiencing so far is drinking a glass of Anmum. I’m not a milk drinker, and I hardly consume hot drinks, whenever I have coffee, it’s always a frappucino or iced. Every night, I’m downing my choco-flavored Anmum by spoonfuls, and right after I consume a glassful, I gag. But I have to do it, everything for a healthy baby =).
