2nd trimester

I can now feel my baby moving inside my tummy. It’s actually more of kicking - not soft movements, most of the time I get surprised. I feel I already gained some weight.  I am happy I’m done with the “nauseous days”. Now, I have to deal with the "always hungry" feeling which I actually prefer. It’s easier to just eat and not to expect to throw it out after.

On another note, we have a new househelp coming later. I hope she’s someone who will stay for a long time. It’s tiring to train new househelps from time to time. If only we're not having a new baby, I’m considering of just having a stay out help. The yaya can now handle both Basty and Alec. She just needs assistance with the laundry and cleaning the house. But with the incoming baby, we will really need extra hand.

3rd check up

I finally gained 1lb...hahaha...parang ang laki no. I'm just happy that I'm not throwing up anymore. I'm always hungry and I can eat na. My OB said my baby is small and I need to gain more weight. My target is to gain at least 5lbs for my next check up *fingers crossed*

Iron Man 2

We were able to watch Iron Man 2 last night. We were supposed to watch last Sunday, with free tickets courtesy of Mario, but Yaya did not come back as agreed. This is another story, but to cut the story short, I told her husband (the yaya is not texting me, i've been exchanging text with her husband) to tell yaya not to come back anymore. It's the last strand na kasi,.

Going back to Iron Man 2, i enjoyed it pero medyo nakulangan lang ako ng action. I was like "that's it?" - referring to the final encounter with Vanko. It's a bit of a let down. But, i can say that all the characters were well love Robert Downey, Jr. specially when he's showing his narcissistic side. I also like the funny lines like "I don't want to join your super secret boy band"

Both Eric and I are not comic fans so we were like "huh?" when they showed some preview (for the next movie). We didn't get it, but I told Eric that the comic geeks will certainly get it and will probably be excited for the 3rd installment.

Did I enjoy it enough to recommend it? I'd say YES :)

Getting better

Finally, a week passed without me throwing up. It's such a relief, to be able to eat more (more is still not my regular meal intake) and not worry of throwing up after.

I hope this continues and i'll be able to gain the 5lbs back and hopefully add some. There was a time I thought I felt my baby kick, but I think it's still too early for that. I can't remember when was the first time I felt my two other babies kick.

My next check up with my OB is after the election...I think everything's ok so far.
