Bakit bucket?

Had a nice time last night. Nikki wanted to eat at KFC and avail of the summer bucket promo. Being the stingy person that I am I computed that it would be less expensive if we just bought the eight piece chicken in a box and 4 fixings at KFC plus rice and a 1.5L coke outside. As it turns out Nikki wasn't in it for the low price but wanted the bucket. Hehe. So we got the bucket. After ordering, Nikki really felt like he wanted the tumblers too so the bill had to be changed for us to get an upsize and the tumblers. Ha... victim of advertising! Anyway, it turned out to be fun, of course. Bless Nikki for he actually paid for my share as well as Cel's share. And so my stingy old heart and swollen belly were both satisfied.

Life is Beautiful

As Mark said the baby's fine. Complete toes and fingers and normal everything else. Thanks for the prayers guys. I'm under bed rest again but no complaints this time. Afterall I have something to do everytime I get bored....I look at my baby's pic.

I think the baby looks a bit like Mark and a lot like Casper...

Worrying is Worthless

I have a scheduled ultrasound with a specialist tomorrow morning. I know I shouldn't worry but I can't help it. I just had an ultrasound yesterday and it turned out that my big baby wasn't so big at all, rather I just have this thing called Polyhydramnios. Its not so bad because 60% of the time the cause is unknown and the resulting complication is increased risk during delivery which does not scare me too much. 20% of the time its because of maternal diabetes or an incompatibility with the mother and child's blood which apparently is not the case. And the last 20% is due problems with the baby like congenital diseases. The last one is the thing I can't help worrying about, its also the thing that the sonologist will try to rule out tomorrow. I can't wait for today to be over.

Please pray for our baby that everythings ok with him.


Its actually weird that I am starting to get my mom. Although her nagging really gets on my nerves I try to shut up because I now feel what its like to worry about your child and not be able to do anything about it.


I'm a little sad that my baby isn't so big. I felt secretly proud everytime somebody noticed how big my belly has grown. I felt like the baby got Mark's appetite. How could I have known that it was mostly fluids? Maybe my baby just loves to swim....


Trying to fight the worry through intensive research. Thank God for the internet. The statistics help but my maternal instincts just wont quit harrassing me.
