A Merry Bloated Christmas

Meretrisha and a Happy New Year...

Hello friends, I'm back. It has been a pretty longggg time minus the blogging. I had been wanting to update my blog but, for the past few days, sleeping (next to eating) became my passion. After reading some great blogs from my favorite friends and bloggers, it would already feel like it's bedtime. I couldn't think of anything to write, anyway. I can only imagine our bed, the pillows, and a good night's sleep with my husband.

So what has kept me busy for the past week or so?

Our company just had our Christmas Party last December 13th (yeah right, it's the same date as my high school reunion). It was a successful event. We've been wanting to go home with the washing machine but Stephen won an MP4 from the raffle, instead. I on the other hand won a computer keyboard. That's not all--our team won the Christmas caroling contest! Because I'm pregnant, I had the privilege of not joining in the presentation and games. Sometimes it's fun to be just the spectator. Here are some pics during the Christmas party.


It was a surefire fun event for all of us. The food was great. I guess I've been eating too much these days. Definitely not a good thing to do throughout my pregnancy. Somebody stop me! :)


Look at my tummy, I sure did look full. Hehehe.

Last Saturday (December 20th), we went to Compostela--mom's death anniversary. The family just had a simple get-together--went to church and had lunch. Expectedly, I ate a lot, especially fruit salad, can't do away with it. So, here's what my tummy have become, at 6 months+.

Then came Sunday, my prenatal schedule. My ob gyne was surprised to learn that my weight has increased from 122 lbs. last month to 134 lbs. this month. Hahaha. If I don't do anything about my appetite, I will really bloat big time. I am so looking forward to Noche Buena!!

food watch: oh my, panini!

i woke up with a bad stomach today, must be the panini i ate last night for dinner at the food court. it was my first time to try it. it did taste great but somehow the pita sandwich with all the fresh vegetables with cheese and chicken spread didn't do me any good. or maybe i just can't survive without rice in my meals. i guess i have to take this one out of my food choices, at least until my pregnancy is due. better safe than sorry.

my tummy is getting bigger. i realized i'm already having a hard time putting on my panty standing up hehehe. funny but true. and my appetite is pretty much impressive, it's back in circulation. i feel like ordering and eating all the food i see and want but i have to watch what i eat and my weight so i won't have to deal with health problems affecting me and the baby later on. have to remind myself again about not literally eating for two.

time to go. have to prepare for work.

pregnancy complications

it's been awhile since my last update. somehow i've acquired some complications that go along with my pregnancy. for one, i believe it's major laziness. i just realized i haven't been very useful in the house lately. my husband doesn't complain much about it although i try to make it up by doing the laundry. i get easily tired and sleepy most of the time. waking up early and getting to work on time is also a major problem, hubby has to drag me out of bed. good thing, though, we haven't been tardy since the start of my pregnancy but every working day has always been a rush hour. oops, i know this wouldn't sell for a movie. sorry, jackie chan!

if there's anything i'm crazy about doing-- it's eating! the first trimester was a disaster, i almost can't eat anything. now that i am already in my 17th week, i am literally eating for two. i know i should watch my diet but i really can't help it. my growing appetite is a major hindrance. hubby thinks i am making my pregnancy as an excuse to eat anything i like because he knows i love to eat even when i was still single. but really -- this is different. my appetite is getting strange these days. i get hungry most of my waking time :). in fact, it's almost dinner time. hubby is cooking "utan bisaya", a dish with all the vegetables that we love. it's pure good stuff this time. i can eat for two again, without feeling guilty.

okay, so it means i'm ending this blog now. i have to do my share in preparing the table. hmmm, am i getting useful or what? i love my husband!!!

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
