We’re Pregnant!
Posted on: 26th of March 2011 | Under: Baby Tales, Life & Love

Setting aside all wedding posts for a while to make a little announcement:


We’re pregnant!

Call it woman’s intuition, but I already had a feeling that I was pregnant as soon as we arrived back in Singapore. I had been very sluggish and all I wanted to do was sleep all day. Heightened sense of smell, tummy cramps and a missed period, the signs where there. But for almost two weeks, I just pushed the thought aside, thinking that I was just extremely tired from the wedding. That, and I seriously thought I was just being my lazy self again. =P

When I finally woke up feeling dizzy and nauseous, I knew it was time for a home pregnancy test. Two positive sticks and a trip to the Ob-Gyn later, it was finally confirmed. :)

We’re about 5 weeks into the pregnancy (we think it’s a wedding night baby), but I’m still not used to being bloated all the time. I have a slight baby bump, but not yet big enough for plus size intimate apparel. LOL! The past week was quite difficult, with the morning sickness hitting me practically all day, everyday. For once in my life, I didn’t want to eat anything, because everything I put in my mouth just wanted to be hurled out again. I’m finally better now and I think my appetite is back. I just have to remember all the pregnancy no-nos, because apparently there are a gazillion and one of them.

We still have a long way to go, but we’re already very excited to meet the little one in November. <3<3<3

    So, so, so excited! As I said via Twitter, I had a little inkling when you mentioned tiredness in your tweets. I was even talking to Nikz a few weeks ago on chat, discussing how bummed we were to miss your wedding, but also that we feel that you may be pregnant and/or have a child by the end of this year.

    Again, congratulations! I’m so happy for you and JR!

    HAHAHA! Yeah, I think being exhausted all the time gave it away. :) Thanks again, Marzy! :)

    Just like Nancy, I’m going to congratulate both you and JR here just like I did on Facebook. Hehe… I am so excited for you guys. I am so looking forward to see some pregnancy updates. :)

    About wearing makeup while pregnant, I did not know you’re not supposed to. Hehe… It’s ironic because I really got into makeup when I was having Justin. That’s when I first started buying makeup and slowly learned how to use it. I figured I was too big to buy clothes, so buying makeup made up for it. Hehehe… I’m sure you and baby will be fine. Then again, with the extra glow mommyhood will bring, you won’t be needing makeup. The glow itself will be your makeup. :D

    I do remember not wearing nail polish while pregnant. I also was quite iffy about doing anything to my hair like dyeing it or getting a haircut. Bawal daw. Hehe…

    I can imagine how you cute you look with the tiny baby bump that has yet to grow. :) Please update us on more baby news soon. :) Take care, Anz. :)

    anna Reply:

    Oooh, you wore makeup when you were pregnant? Wooohooo! I guess I can play around with makeup too then. LOL! Heard about the no-nailpolish while pregnant too. A little bummed about that. I bought a bottle of nail polish that I wanted to try last week pa naman. Oh well, but I guess everything in moderation will be fine. Haha!

    Thanks again, Ate Janz! :) Will also bug you with baby tips soon. :) Hehe!

    OMG!! Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Congrats!! You’re going to love being a mommy. What an amazing news!!! Don’t opt for amnio especially if you don’t need it. I’m sure your bundle of joy will be alright. I remember back then when we started blogging, we were talking about endless nothings and then here we are, 10 years later: married & with child (well, yours is on the way hehehe). So so happy for you! I can’t wait to read more pregnancy updates. Do you have a preference sa gender ng baby?

    anna Reply:

    Thanks, Ate Chetz!!! I’m excited for the little one to come out. Can’t wait for all the pampering and spoiling! LOL! :) JR wants a boy, I want a girl… but we’ll both be happy either way. :) Hehe!

    Can’t believe it’s been 10 years, noh? We’ve all come a long way! :)

    funny how the mommy wants a girl & the daddy wants a boy. Myk was extra happy when he found out we were having a boy. So was i. Pero gusto ko na ng girl, ang kulit and likot ng boy!!!
