I love this week’s Mommy Moments theme: Preggy Days. If you want to share your stories and photos with us, join us!
My first pregnancy was really difficult, I throw up a lot. I had morning sickness all day long. I was smoking then and quitting was hard (but I was able to) So there’s the morning sickness plus withdrawal symptoms, what more can you ask for? I am stay at home, that’s the good thing about it. We have planned on this pregnancy months before it was conceived. It was late 2002 when we planned on getting married and he kinda proposed on my birthday (FEb 2003).. Don’t say your “aww he is so sweet” line coz there is not a trace of romance on the way he proposed.. here it how it goes,, something like.. OK you’re 21 now, call your mom, tell her to take care of the papers for the wedding. Just that.. more of a command that a proposal LOL And so I got pregnant on January (do you really want to know the exact date?) and we planned our wedding on Feb (not knowing I am already preggy) to happen on March. Financials get in the way and we moved it to May.. then we learned I was preggy and move it back to March. I also had some emotional roller coaster then, and had a hard time giving birth.. And since I am stay at home and have a lot of emotional tantrums, I sleep most of the times, I don’t move a lot, I gave birth late. My due date was October 17 but gave birth (Kayil, 7.5 lbs) on the 24th, only because i walked non stop on the 23rd.
Kayil was 9 months when we learned that I was pregnant again, that was very traumatic to me.. He was a cry baby and I am a first time mom with no help (I am far away from my mother). He is breastfed purely but I have to wean him for the baby.. and the memories of my delivery is still fresh (even the wound! ugh!). I gave birth to Kayil in Valenzuela, as I have said I had a hard time giving birth. My OB is the nicest person on that field (our OBs are angels!). We moved to Pasig when Kayil was 6 months old. I travelled to and from Valenzuela just for my OB.. and gave birth to Mico in Bulacan.
Chico is not planned, just as with Mico. I was into birth controls after Mico but stopped because of the side effects. Took us 6 months of birth control free before Chico was conceived. Morning sickness were here again. Throwing up again and again.. withdrawal symptoms ( I was smoking again). I had some infections 1 week before Chico comes out. My OB says that I need to take it antibiotics for 7 days. OB says too that it would put some danger on Chico’s health if the infection is still there when I give birth. It is a blessing that I was finished with the meds when he comes out, and that there were no more infection. The delivery was great, still painful and still intolerable, but I am getting used to it.. LOL (We still plan to have a baby, and we will work on to have a baby girl)
