Baby J @ 33 weeks

This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark. He’s rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren’t fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a conehead-like appearance.) These bones don’t entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.

Yesterday marks baby J’s 33th week. She’s doing fine according to her latest ultrasound. And my OB told me that the results were all OK. She’s beginning to position herself already. Coz I told my OB that sometimes I get to feel na medyo mabigat sa puson area na parang something is malalaglag down there. She told me na Baby J’s starting to get ready for birth, she’s already trying to position herself to possible exits sa kinalalagyan niya. Pero I don’t have to worry naman daw kasi bumabalik din naman siya sa dati niyang pwesto.

Hindi pumasok ang mom ko because na-hospital siya because of bronchitis. Na-discharge naman na siya nung Monday pero she decided she’ll go to work next Monday nalang para makapahinga ng todo. Yah right… makapahinga ka diyan, Mom … eh puro shopping ginawa mo.

After going to my OB yesterday, my mom and I went to the mall. Sinamahan ako ng mommy ko sa doctor kasi wala si Jason, nasa Davao ulit. Hindi sinasadya ni Jason na hindi makasama sa prenatal check up ko. Nataon lang na mataas ang pamasahe going to Davao ng Thursday kaysa sa Wednesday. Kaya napilitan siya na kunin na ang flight ng Wednesday kaysa ng Thursday. Next prenatal check up ko daw kasama na siya … aba dapat lang eh malapit na kaya ako manganak.

As usual, pag kasama ko ang nanay ko, isa lang ibig sabihin nun … shopping!!! Ano nanaman ba ang binili ko? I bought 2 sandals from Charcoal and Figlia (sale kasi), 2 preggy polo shirts (I so love the color), 1 white preggy capri pants, toiletries needed in the hospital, nursing bra, bigkis for baby J (sabi ni mom kailangan daw eh), nursing pads (I bought the disposable ones muna) and underwear (yes… I feel the need to buy new ones …). I bought Jason some underwear as well. Would you believe ako bumibili ng underwear niya? hehehe! I’m not embarrassed kasi lahat ng binibili ko for him nagugustuhan niya. Hay sana di ako pagalitan ni Jason sa sobra kong gastos hehehe.

I’m almost done packing my hospital bag … bale gamit nalang ni Jason ang kulang. Baby J’s stuffs were already in her own bag last week pa. This week I’m also having my haircut. It’s already getting dry and I feel uncomfortable already dahil sobrang init ng panahon. Hindi palang ako decided kung anong length? Gusto ko sana yung wash and wear na haircut nalang kasi I’m sure when baby J’s out already eh wala na ako time masyado para magpaganda. Kaso problema ko wavy hair ako … eh baka naman mukhang buhaghag lagi ang hair ko pag maikli hahahaha. Bahala na si Batman!

This is really getting exciting already! Lapit na!

  3. hi ann! lapit na mag gand entrance si baby j. im sure you can’t wait na. i can’t wait na din! =D

  4. Hi Mec, Tin and Cheche, uber sa excitement na kami … konting panahon nalang at grand entrance na ni Baby J sa outside world 🙂 salamat sa pagdalaw sa akin 🙂 touch ako hihihi.

  5. It’s always nice to have dates with mommy di ba? Anyway, nakakahawa ang excitement mo sa pagdating ni Baby J, hahaha!

  6. pansin ko lang, puro shopping ang ginagawa mo during your pregnancy. yan ba ang iyong ‘nesting’ tendency? hehe. pero ok na work out yan, masaya pa 🙂

    and for me it’s not weird na ikaw ang bumibili ng underwear ni hubby kasi diba ganun naman talaga? mom ko kasi ganun sa dad ko at sa mga brothers ko! hehe.

  7. hello po. Um, i would just like to remind you about the bigkis. although it is a thing for babies to have one, so that they would not look like they’re “butete” or anything, so that they would look like the one with curves.

    Just a reminder, please don’t cover the belly button of your baby with the bigkis on, kasi po it will cause pressure and damage, that will further lead to infections of the site.

    We usually remove the bigkis in the hospital during the baby’s check up because the medical personnel believed that it serves no purpose.

    Good luck on your Baby J! I wish the best health for her. See ya. =D

  8. @ Heidi, naku kaya ayaw kami pinagsasama ng tatay ko kasi sigurado madami nanaman daw kami bitbit pag-uwi hahaha.

    @ Iris, sabi kasi ni mom, pag 37th week ko na daw, wag na daw ako mag-mall … kung ayaw ko daw magrupture ang waterbag ko in public hahaha. Dito nalang daw ako sa bahay maglakad at sa clubhouse namin sa village at least malapit na sa hospital hihihi. Kaya lahat ng kailangan ko bilhin binibili ko na ngayon para wala malimutan.

    @ Yen, hi thanks for dropping by … lahat ng doctor ngayon hindi na pinag-bibigkis ang mga new born babies … kalaban natin dito is tradition at kasabihan ng mga matatanda … kaya wala ako choice kundi sumunod sa mom ko kaysa magkatampuhan kami hehehehe.

  9. Goodluck syo sis. Lapit na siya lumabas. Nainggit tuloy ako….
