Daddy feels Baby M!

Kevin finally felt the baby move for the first time. Lately the baby has been moving so much, not just when I'm laying down. And Baby's kicks/nudges/punches have been so much stronger this month than ever before. We could even see my belly move!

Is that a stretch mark I see?

We were in Fairfield for the weekend. My parents had a Baby Shower for us. I woke up in the morning to get ready, as I got out of the shower I noticed faint red marks around my belly button. OH that stretch marks I see? There's that other dreadful pregnant thing next to the outie belly button. I swear I used cream everyday, twice a day...but I still got them. Oh well...hopefully they go away after pregnancy like most women say.
The baby shower was successful. It was great to see all of my family and friends. Most of my relatives predict a Baby Girl in my belly. Ya know...all that Filipino superstition. Everyone was so surprised at how much weight I have not gained and how much I am glowing.

Our 7th Prenatal Appointment

Had another rough night of no sleep. I lied awake for hours watching Kevin and Meka sleeping so soundly. Dr's appt was fine. Still no weight gain. I've grown about 7 inches total in my waist though! YIKES. So I'm growing, not gaining...YET.
I found out yesterday that my favorite cousin Joel and his wife Marie are also expecting. I'm so happy for them! It'll be so fun for us to go through pregnancy together. They're about 9 weeks right now and due in June. Congratulations Joel and Marie!

Stay at Home Mommy in Training

It's been a week since I stopped working. Been hard trying to keep busy or stay away from becoming a couch potato!
Baby M has been moving a lot still. I hear it only gets stronger from here. I noticed my belly button starting to peek out more. ARRGGHH! The one fear I have being pregnant is my belly button becoming an outie. I know it may sound weird, but it's not something I'm looking forward to. The boobs are getting bigger than ever and have been sore still. The linea negra has become more visible, but not that bad.
My sleep habits haven't been too good. There are nights where I can't sleep a full night through. I usually get up and have to watch tv for a few hours before falling asleep again. The heating pad has become attached to me lately. My hips and lower back have been very painful. Acts up more when I'm walking a lot.
