Before The Babies: Week 15

October 26, 2017 8 Comments


I just got home and I am pooped!!! I know I haven’t updated in so long. I’ve been overthinking it, feeling like I had to tell my pregnancy story chronologically but screw that! Let’s just go back to the basics and make this a diary-style entry, ok?

I’m on my 15th week of pregnancy – I believe that means I’m in my 4th month? I’m still not sure how this works. I learned that it’s easier for preggos to count weeks instead of months to track our baby’s growth. Supposedly, my babies are the size of apples right now. Doesn’t that cuteness just make you cry…

I’m done with the first trimester, my energy’s a lot better these days but still not 100% and I’m prone to experience fatigue faster than usual. My heart’s pumping blood to two extra humans so that explains why I get tired easily.

Today I dropped off Joey at The Dog Spa Circulo Verde for a bath and trim. Usually, I stay at the nearby coffee shop and work while waiting for her to finish but I had a ton of errands to run today so our kasambahay went with her. It took me three tries until an Uber driver finally said yes to driving a dog home. (Bless your heart, Kuya Melecio!)

Bagong ligo bear!!

Then I drove all the way to Quezon ave to pick up some Canadian dollars from the bank. It was only available there or Makati and I didn’t want to go to Makati hehe. Excited for our pre-baby trip next week!!

Finally, I headed to the mall and went on a shopping spree because barely any of my clothes fit me anymore. Haha! My bras are so uncomfortable because my boobs have gotten ginormous. I’m not ashamed to say I spent a lot of money on new clothes but you guys know I only shop for myself like twice a year. Haha! I super deserve it!!! I keep decluttering my closet and I’ve run out of clothes!!! (BTW, to make room for my new stuff, stay tuned to @beshbuyph on Instagram!)

I deserve it….

I’m just so happy I finally got around to buying new clothes because I’ve been putting it off for weeks now and my pants just kept getting tighter and tighter. Lelz. I didn’t get any special maternity clothes, just a size up from what I usually get. I think my belly’s big enough to show off now. Hindi ako mukhang busog lang. Hahaha!

Then I went to K by Cunanan’s office to taste the food for Maxx’s bridal shower. Thanks to the best bridesmaid, Lauren, for coming with me!!! The food was so yummy, I can’t wait for the party next month.

Oh, another highlight of my day is when I bought my first baby item this morning!! I purchased a Bebear baby carrier thru Amazon. Free shipping via my tita who’s coming home to Manila next month. Locally it’s around P7,000. I got it for about P2,000 each!! Of course I got one each for the twins. Aaahhhh! Baby shopping will be addicting, I know it.

P.S. BY THE WAY, COME TO KIEHL’S ALABANG TOWN CENTER THIS SATURDAY AND LET’S HANG OUT!! Register here and get a chance to win freebies! #KiehlsStressBusters

    Hi Saab! I’m on my 14weeks of pregnancy now. From my last month until now I gained a kilo. How do you keep slim while pregnant? I want to hear your regimen. Thank you.

      Hi Clarisse! I definitely don’t keep track of what I eat. It’s the only time I can load up on whatever I want. Of course sugar and junk has to be limited but some days I devour brownies like there’s no tomorrow, other days I stick to my normal 3 meals (brown rice!) plus a peanut butter sandwich hehe. Don’t worry about keeping slim while pregnant. What’s important is your babies get the nutrition they need :) I walked around a LOT during the first 2 trimesters, I think that’s why I wasn’t gaining so much but now that I was told not to walk too much and stay put at home, I’m gaining a lot quicker but that’s normal for the 3rd trimester anyway so I’m not bothered!
