Yes, I'm almost there. I had my monthly check-up yesterday and so far, thank God it has been uneventful. I only gained 2 lbs since I got pregnant and I'm on the right track. My target is to only gain 10 lbs when I give birth. Hopefully, I'll be able to do it else I'll be high risk already. My doctor wants me to go walking or swimming as my form of exercise. I'm still on my prenatal vitamins, but will have a new set of tests next month. I am so NOT looking forward to that. I absolutely abhor that oral glucose tolerance challenge. That orangy-sweet thing is just nasty.
However, when I woke up this morning, my belly felt heavy and my right leg and right arm felt uncomfortable (ano bang english sa "nangangalay"). Maybe because I was lying on them too much throughout the night. I slept so heavily. The baby was actively moving and it must've been pushing against an organ or nerve as my right side felt painful for awhile. If this persists tomorrow, I'll call in sick and see my doctor again.
I've been encouraging Leo to talk to the baby. I just told him to aim for the bump and just talk so that the baby will recognize his voice. I haven't been listening to classical music that often, but I've been listening to an instrumental piano CD and the Madrigal Singers.
I enrolled us for Rome Kanapi's childbirth classes starting October 11. I'll be on my 6th month by then. I'm looking forward to that. Leo will hopefully learn how to change diapers and take care of the baby.
We'll know the sex of the baby hopefully on my congenital ultrasound two weeks from now. I'm not really particular with the sex--as long as our baby is healthy.
