Doctor's visit and eyeing for my first vehicle.

Today is a pretty busy day for us. I had a doctor's appointment in the morning. I was actually a bit apprehensive with this doctor because I've heard that even if he's a pretty smart one, he seemed to lack good bedside manners. But the visit actually went pretty well. He appears to be approachable, professional and most importantly, he answered all of our questions really good. The doctor confirmed that I was already 9 weeks in the family way. He prescribed me some prenatal vitamins and reassured me that everything that I have been feeling lately is just normal including the mild cramping that I experience sometimes. My blood pressure is normal. They also did some blood work for further analysis. My next visit is on May 28th and I am scheduled to have a pelvic examination done. We might be able to hear the baby's heartbeat on our next visit as well so we're pretty much excited about that. I felt relieved to have been able to talk to a medical professional. Now I won't stress too much about my morning sickness. I'll try to savor the experience, after all, it's a wonderful blessing from above.

On the way to DR's appt.

After the appointment, we shop around for my first vehicle. It was part of our plan to get a new vehicle once I get pregnant. The baby definitely have no room in our truck. And I need a vehicle to get around especially in my condition. I don't have any particular car in mind actually. What matters to me really is that there must be enough room for the future baby, so a slick 2-door sports car is not an option, haha! A real nice small, girly and compact SUV such as Ford Escape, Nissan Rogue, Honda CRV and maybe the small Ford Explorers would be good options for me. I'm also looking into Nissan, Ford and Chevy cars. I saw a 2010 Ford Taurus in Cherry Red and a Nissan Maxima this morning that I have kinda liked so far. We're not yet done looking so we're hoping for more options in the next few weeks. Of course, we have set a budget range for the price that we're willing to pay so it's not a "sky is the limit" thing here, haha! Having a baby tends to be expensive so more than ever, this is the time that we need to be very wise and practical with our spending. The last thing we want to happen is to be burdened with financial problems. We don't want to be indebted up to our eyeballs so we're taking things easy. I trust hubby in that aspect. He seems to be pretty good with money and saving than me, hehe. So I know he'll make good financial decisions for us.

By the way, Sis I'm sorry I was not able to visit you because I had been away for a week attending the International Convention of The CFC-Handmaids of the Lord held in Victoria’s City, Negros Occidental. Also, I was sick because stress. Right now, I am trying to catch up with my schoolwork due to my absences

Congrats, congrats, congrats! When is the due date, momma? ;)

As for the car, I totally agree with you---get a car that is safe, dependable, and has room for a folding stroller, portable playpen, and all the baby stuff you guys are going to need!

@meretrisha
-awkward unta gud pero wala man koy mahems kay puros man pud lalake ang muhandle sa delivery diri sa Mt. Home area, this is the closest bigger city/town from our place, around 15 mins. the next bigger city is already 2 hours away which is inconvenient kaau. it's ok nalang na guy ang doctor, agwantahon, hahaha, tutal daghan na na sila pepe nakit-an bitaw, lol

Hiyang kaau k sa Jenn. I think you are having a boy. They said if a pregnant woman is so pretty during pregnancy, expect a baby boy.

congrats jenn! mas maayo baya ang lalaki nga OB kaysa babaye. akong first OB diri kay babaye nya wa ko ganahi niya kay purely business gyud ang pag treat niya sa akoa unlike sa lalaki nga OB kay maayo mo handle ug pasyente as in TLC. bisan akong mga friends diri maka compare nga mas maayo ang lalaki mo treat nila kaysa babaye.

anyways, mas maayo baya kung continue ka mag exercise while buntis ka. hinay2 lang, sa makaya ra nimo. importante nga mag exercise ka regularly kay nila pa ang pagpanganak is like a game (let's say volleyball) and before the big days comes, dapat mag practice ka pirmi. you need the strength and energy to push the baby di ba. ako aim sa una is 30 mins. walk sa treadmill then kung kapuyon nako before 30 mins. undang nako. i noticed that i have more energy if i exercise kay kung di gani ko ka exercise, kapoy akong lawas bisan walay gibuhat. ask your OB about that and good luck sa pagpangita ug car. :)
