Baby J at 16 Weeks

This was taken a few days before I hit 16 weeks. Di pa masyado halata no? Inip na nga ako lumobo ang tummy ko pero sabi ng iba pag first baby daw talagang matagal daw lumobo ang tiyan. Usually mga 6 months pa. Tagal pero malapit na yun hehehe.

Napaaga ang prenatal check up ko. Instead na Dec. 15 pa eh napaaga ng Dec. 5 … bakit? Kasi nung Dec. 3 mega hanap ako ng dress to wear para sa wedding ng friend ko. Naging todo pagod ata ang nangyari sa akin, nung gabi na yun nahirapan na ako makatayo kasi I felt numbness on my back and butt. Kinabukasan, naka-lie down pa din ako sa bed. Nagtext na ako sa OB ko, I told her kung ano yung mga na-experience kong mga symptoms kasama na ang slight cramps sa puson. Pinapunta na niya ako sa clinic niya ng Dec. 5.

Since ako lang ang patient that time, nagkaroon ng maraming time hanapin ni OB si Baby J. Makipaglaro ba naman ng hide and seek at habulan eh. Kasi pag natatapat na sa kanya yung doppler, bigla tong nawawala … siyempre hahanapin nanaman ni OB kung nasaan siya. Pag narinig na heartbeat niya, bigla nanaman nawawala. Susme! siguro mga 10 minutes bago siya nahanap ulit at napirmi sa isang lugar. Super duper likot kaya niya. Samantalang bago kami pumunta ng clinic, kinausap na siya ni Daddy Jason na wag malikot hehehe.

On medication nanaman ako to get rid of pangangalay ng likod … Duvidillan or Isoxilan … mga muscle relaxant yun para maiwasan yung pangangalay. Tinake ko siya until matapos yung day ng birthday ni Daddy. Sa ngayon ok nanaman ako pero kahapon kasi medyo nangalay nanaman ang likod ko kaya ayan slight bed rest nanaman ako. Hay o hay!

A lot of people were trying to guess baby J’s gender … majority hula nila boy daw … ayoko na tanungin kung bakit kasi baka isagot nila dahil ang pangit ko eh ma-depress lang ako wahahaha! Since malikot daw and di daw ako mapili sa pagkain or wala daw ako pinaglilihian eh baby boy nga daw ang baby ko. Yung iba naman kaya girl ang hula eh dahil blooming daw ako. Hala sige hula pa… eh sa February pa namin malalaman ang gender niya eh.

Simula nung nalaman nila na buntis ako, wala na silang tigil kakahimas sa tummy ko. Ako naman pag may humihimas eh kinakausap ko si baby, “that’s tita Rema baby … that’s Lolo baby” mga ganun … nakakatuwa … bilbil palang hinihimas nila, what more kung talagang malaki na tummy ko hehehe.

According to babycenter.com, here is how baby J is growing:

At 4 1/2 inches long (head to bottom) and 3 1/2 ounces, your baby is about the size of an avocado. In the next three weeks, she’ll go through a tremendous growth spurt, though, doubling her weight and adding inches to her length. Her lower limbs are much more developed now. Her head is more erect than it has been, and her eyes have moved toward the front of her head. Your baby’s ears are close to their final position, too. Some of her more advanced body systems are working, including her circulatory system and urinary tract. Her heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, circulating her total blood volume through her body many times. (By the end of your pregnancy, this will increase to about 190 quarts.) The patterning of her scalp has begun, though her hair isn’t recognizable yet. Although closed, her eyes are moving (slowly), and she’s even started growing toenails.

Baby J, 5 months to go … sana wag ka masyado makulit kasi minsan nahihirapan si Mommy. Pero ok lang, at least I know you’re active and strong kaya nararamdaman ka na ni Mommy. Daddy is so excited na. We’re planning to buy you books sa floating bookstore para he’ll start reading stories na for you. So excited!

  1. ako sis 5th month lumobo na ang tyan hehehe ang hula ko jan sis lalaki din πŸ˜‰ meri xmas πŸ˜€

  2. sama here feeling ko boy si Baby J..pareho tayo eh (wala masyadong cravings, malikot at pinahihirapan ang OB sa paghuli ng heartbeat through the doppler, etc) yun nga lang, at 4th month pa lang medyo halata na tiyan ko..probably, super liit lang kasi body frame ko kaya mukhang butete agad. hehe!

    ingatz sis!

  3. Sigh! I can so feel your anticipation and excitement πŸ™‚ Ansaya diba?! Ako din nung first trimester ko gusto ko na agad lumobo tyan ko. Parang hindi ako makapaniwala non na buntis narin ako after almost 3 years of waiting! May matris din pala ako. Ahihihi! πŸ™‚

    Sis share ko syo lunar calendar. I got to know my baby’s gender right from the first day I knew I was pregnant. http://www.marriageandbeyond.com/2006/07/18/the-lunar-calendar/

    Nga lang dapat lam mo when ka ngconceive and dapat tama calculations mo, make sure you add 9 months sa age mo fr the date of conception. swak yan kasi lahat ng mga friends ko, we tracked their pregnancies, tama lahat. Pati kaming magkapatid. We even find it nowadays posted sa mga ob clinics. I don’t really know the basis of this calendar. I’m sure it has nothing to do with witchcraft. hehe. God bless you throughout your maternity! Enjoy every day! And take plenty of belly shots! πŸ™‚

  4. @ Joan, sis pano mo naman nasabi na boy ang magiging baby ko πŸ™‚

    @ Mai, ahihihi hala dami na humuhula na boy ang baby ko hihihi. Nag-ooppose yung mga lola at lolo on both sides, babae daw baby namin hihihi.

    @ Jennie, thanks for dropping by … thanks for sharing the lunar calendar … based on it boy magiging baby ko. I’ve checked me and my siblings kung accurate nga, tumama sa amin ng kuya ko, pero sa kapatid ko na bunso girl yung lumabas. Pero nakakatuwa siya gawin… let’s wait and see nalang on February kung boy nga hihihi.

  5. You’re most welcome sis! Announce it ha, so we can rejoice with you! May you breeze through this pregnancy. God bless. πŸ™‚

  6. hi sis! nae-excite din ako sa kwento mo…katuwa ung pag-hide and seek ni baby J πŸ™‚ nangyari din yan sa akin nung 3rd month na prenatal ko, di mahuli sa doppler si baby hehe.

    wag mo na isipin ung mga hula, di naman lagi na pag boy pumapangit or pag girl blooming πŸ˜›

    have a happy pregnancy…ako nasa last leg na πŸ™‚ inip na nga ako gusto ko soon na hahaha

    advance merry christmas…

  7. sis, sa ngayon mas exciting ang status mo kasi anytime lalabas na ang iyong bundle of joy. Ako ngayon hinihintay ko palang yung paglaki ng tiyan ko ng todo. hehehE!

  8. hi ann! ang sarap maging preggy noh? πŸ™‚

    ako naman, 6 months pregnant na ako nung naging very obvious na yung tyan ko. malikot din naman si Erin nung buntis pa lang ako sa kanya, so hinde indicator ng gender ng baby yung activeness. πŸ˜€

    ingat lagi!

  9. Hi. Haven’t visited your blog for a while ah. 16 weeks ka na pala. Looking Good. Can I make a wild guess? I guess it’s a boy.

    Alam mo ba na hindi rin basis ang looks if a lady is having a boy or a girl. I know someone who was absolutely radiant when she was pregnant and yet she had a boy. As they say, basta healthy…

    God bless. Always take care.

  10. @ Leah, hello sis, yun din nga sabi ng MIL ko at Mommy ko. Kasi when she had me ako daw yung pinakamalikot sa magkakapatid. Eh yung dalawang kapatid ko lalaki, ako lang ang girl. hihihi!

    @ Maeyo, hala nakihula na din si Maeyo hahaha. Naku ask ko talaga si OB kung pwede na ako magpa-ultrasound sa January to know Baby J’s gender, sabi niya sa February nalang daw kasi baka masayang yung pera namin pag medyo malabo pa yung gender na makikita. Patience is a virtue hihihi.

  11. uuuuy malapit na… CONGRATS

  12. yung baby ko kasi girl tapos mataas ang tyan ko tsaka tulis, yung sayo mejo sa baba at bilog. sabi ng matatanda e ganon e πŸ™‚ pwede na yata sa 4month malaman ang sex ng baby ngayon, dati kasi 6th month pa e πŸ™‚

  13. Hi Anne! Merry Christmas to you and your family! πŸ˜€ I wish you all the best… may you have a safe pregnancy and an easy delivery…

  14. I like to disseminate knowledge that will I’ve accrued with the calendar year to help enhance group performance.
