A little update...

I know...I've been silent for a long time, a little longer than the usual. I've had trouble accessing the blogger website last month, which made me lose my cool and wanted to stop blogging altogether. But I realized that I missed all you guys. When I opened my blogger account today, I was surprised that blogger automatically switched me to the new version. Oh well, at least I had no trouble logging in and posting this entry. Actually, it seems even easier now.

Just a little update...

Whooaa...I've gained 30 pounds with the pregnancy. And there's still one more trimester left to go. My OB-GYN wants me to cut down on my carb intake. Aw shucks, I love my carbs...rice, bread, pasta, you name it.

I have edema ("pagmamanas") of the ankle and feet. From a shoe size of 8, I've gone to a size 9 and this morning, I had trouble putting on my size 9 shoes because of the extreme swelling. The only thing I look forward to are the foot massages my husband gives me every night in the hopes of letting the swelling subside. (I don't think it has any effect but please don't tell my husband.)

Anyway, I'm getting hungry. Im thinking of going to Greenbelt 1 and having some snacks...maybe pasta? ("Tigas talaga ng ulo...kasasabi lang bawasan ang carb intake eh.") Good luck ladybug!

Hey ladybug! Been a while since you posted. Well, at least you have an excuse for staying away from blogging. But I do hope it's temporary, everyone misses your posts.

Hard to be a woman doesn't it? Lumolobo pag buntis, haha. Kidding. Anyways, do take care and update naman... :-)

Welcome back ladybug...I was really wondering why a cool site like yours suddenly went silent for a long time.

Now we're all be glad that you are back again, telling badminton stories and law stories too.

Hi, Ladybug!

I can imagine how you are with your pregnancy. I have 3 kids! It's not easy, pero masarap kumain, di ba?

Watch that 'pamamanas' though. It's not a very good sign. Try cutting down on salt. Low salt diet is best for you.

Good luck and happy date with the stork! :)

Ladybug,

Welcome back! I hope you and the baby are well.

Take care of yourslef. You know the last trisem is also a bit dangerous. Anyway, I dont want to frighten you, sige mag pasta! More fruits. :)

Nice to read you again. :)

snglguy> Naks...you're so sweet. Thanks for the nice message. Will try to post more often. It's true, so hard to be a woman. Swerte talaga ng mga lalake....tsk tsk. :-D

ladybug said...

major tom> Naks...cool site daw ito o. Thanks for the nice message. Take care of yourself and I hope you get well soon! :-D

ladybug said...

eric> Thanks! I miss all of you guys too. :-D Been out of touch na talaga.

ladybug said...

sidney> Thanks! I ate arrabiata at Piadinas...hehe. :-D I promise to be a good girl from now on and follow my doctor's advice. Thankfully, my husband hasn't read (yet) my entry yesterday so he still gave a foot massage last night...haha.

ladybug said...

vic> Thanks! Will certainly keep you updated, esp. when the baby bug arrives. ;-D

ladybug said...

rhodora> Thanks for the advice. I know, my sister also told me to avoid salty foods. I'm really trying very hard. But there are days when I really could not resist the temptation...hehe. My bad. Thanks for dropping by. I also visited your blog and left a comment. Unfortunately, the server thought my comment was spam and did not post it. Will try to visit it again tomorrow.

Welcome back, ladybug. Glad to hear everything's fine. I think you should listen to the doctor. :)

ladybug said...

ipanema> I know...hirap nga last trisem. Delikado pa because of all the possible complications like gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia (did I spell it right?). All I can do now is pray and visit my ob-gyne regularly. Sige na nga, more fruits. Thanks for the nice message. :-D

ladybug said...

abaniko> Thanks! Hahaha...I really enjoyed my pasta yesterday, oh well, at least until I felt guilty about it later. Will really really try to cut back on carbs. Thanks! I hope you still play badminton...pero hinay-hinay rin lang ha. :-D

ladybug said...

niceheart> I know, I know. :-D I'm dreading my visit later to the doctor later. I'm sure she will give me a stern warning. The edema on my ankles and feet are very noticeable. Oh well...wish me luck. :-D

Toe said...

What? Bawal carbs? Palitan ang duktor! Mwahahahahaha! :) Joke lang Ladybug. Take care of yourself and welcome back. :)

ladybug said...

toe> Nako toe, kung alam mo lang naka-dalawang ob-gyne na ako....hehehe. Anyway, hindi naman totally bawal...bawasan ko lang daw. medyo malaki na ang na-gain ko eh. Pinagbawalan na rin ako ng mashadong maalat at yung matatamis. Poor me.

Bugsy said...

Pasta is always very very hard to resist. Ask me. :)
