Books, Games & Pregnancy Updates


I am currently 27 weeks far along. Still a long way to go but everything has been great so far. We went to the doctor today. I had another sugar routine check, I believe this has been the third time that they took out some blood sample to check for sugar in my bloodstream. All came back normal so everything has been cool so far. In 3 weeks, I think I'm going to have a glucose tolerance test. I believe that's when they give you something sweet to drink, wait for an hour or so then take some blood sample to determine how quickly it is cleared from the blood. I've been hearing not so good things about that test but if it's something I need to go through, then so be it, but I'm definitely not looking forward to it, lol. Anyway, the doctor said baby's heartbeat sounded great. I've been feeling some mild occasional cramps at nights but he said it's quite normal as long as there's no fluid or blood discharge. He advised me to take plenty of water though since dehydration could also cause more cramping. The most exciting update for me is feeling the baby move. I started feeling it since week 24. The first kick freaked me out at first, haha! But I have gotten used to it after a while. It worries me sometimes when I feel him less on some days. It puts a smile on my face or makes me giggle whenever I feel him move around. I can't believe there's actually somebody growing inside of me and actually moving. It's just an amazing feeling.

On a different note, I've been inefficient dealing with time lately. I mean I understand I'm already physically limited to do stuff around the house but it makes me feel kinda' bored at times. Hubby understands and sympathizes with me so as what he always does, he's quick to respond to my needs, hehe. He would always take me out for dinner, drive me to shopping stores on weekends, buy me some plants from nurseries that I've enjoyed watering everyday, hehe, and just recently he got me some video games from Amazon for my WII and DS and also some books for us to read together at night. We've started reading "The Baby Book" together and it's kinda neat to learn stuff together about having a baby. On the other hand, I've been keeping myself busy on weekdays by playing WII. I love Rune Factory: Frontier. It's my first time to try simulation/role playing video game and I enjoyed the stuff you can do in that game. You can grow crops and then sell them, defeat and befriend monsters in dungeons and turn them into pets if you wish to, mine for metals and minerals, go fishing, spend money and material to buy a variety of upgrades for the house, weapons, and tools or even meet somebody that you can start a family with. It's a cool and unique game and I find myself easily spend hours playing it. It's better than sleeping all the time which was what I have done in the past.

@poray

mao lage hadlok ko basin i'll be like my sister ba na nisuka in front of the nurse when it's time to draw some blood, she had to go back lage for another appt. hehe.

about sa bana, hahaha, mubalibad pud ni usahay oi, labi na not feeling well, pero mas daghan ang tando kaysa balibad, hehe. daan pa man ni cya sauna ingun ani, i'm grateful wala nausab after 3 years of marriage. he would always take the time and effort to take me out for a date mura pud uyab gihapon ba, hehe. he has 3 days off man gud so he understands na ma-bored pud tawn si wifey sa haus oi dili bya lalim ang housewife, so mulaag jud mi at least once sa weekend. then if kapoyan pud ko luto sa haus on weekdays, libog ko unsa recipe lutoon, hehe when he gets home i'll just tell him that i'd like to eat out, all the time he would not say no coz kasabot pud cya kapoy pud luto, hahaha. tapulana pud nko oi, hehe pero yeah i guess that's what u call it, i'm lucky. :) salamat sa reply girl!
