thoughts of a not so pregnant girly

so it is official. i got the blood results this morning (which has 99% accuracy level vs the usual preg test kits which is just at 97%) and it’s positive. i am pregnant.

just for a few weeks though, i’m probably on my 2nd or 3rd. when i was not yet sure i was, i was experiencing the whole set of symptoms: nausea in the mornings, vomiting in the afternoons and extreme pain in the abdomen. as if my kid was telling me…hey mom i’m here!! when the test came out … sudden calmness! i don’t even feel that i’m pregnant now, up to a point that i sometimes wonder if i really am – which was why i was waiting for the blood results. just to be fool-proof sure.

before i emailed friends and called up relatives about it – i had second thoughts on announcing everything this early. i mean – it was just a positive pregnancy test. i can’t even answer the usual question “how far along are you?” because i’m not that “far along…”

but i said to myself – what the heck, i could always retract right? these are the people i love – they would understand. and i wanted to share with EVERYONE how happy i was. in 6 months i would probably wonder what i was that happy about when my being a finance worry-freak coupled with those pregnancy syndrome will be at its peak. but whatever happens, i am happy now. i never even thought it would be possible with my condition and all – which makes this pregnancy more special than it really is.

have been doing a lot of reading for the past few days – some were enligthening, most were just scary. the first few months they say are the most critical ones, make or break ‘ba.

unfortunately my notion that as a pregnant person i can eat anything i want has been rebuked by most experts. no more chocolates and coffee, soft cheeses and my favorite vanilla buttercream (not just because of the fat from the butter but due to the raw egg whites!!). must consume 8-9 servings of fruit and veggies. no more using my allergy medicine to get a really good night sleep. i could only gain 2 lbs in the next month! actually, it just a total of 20 lbs for the next 9 months – most of which will go to my belly, hips and to you know what (am potah malaki na nga eh!!!). parang ang onti noh? but i’m sticking with it. knowing my appetite even before this pregnancy – this 20 lbs is wishful thinking. ngunt kailangan, para kay bebe. bigger motivation at hand.

so, will i be talking about my being pregnant all the time now? will this turn into one of those maternity blogs? well, at least for the next 9 months…

    iniisip ko na nga yan eh…pero so far – malaki pa din ang panalo ni “no way!” argument kaysa kay “for art’s sake?” 😛

    engjel pregnant and nude photo series… hmmm… well i suppose i’ve seen worse things on the ‘net… JHOWKK! sige nga, why not?! the thing is, ‘di mo naman kailangan ipakita sa mundo eh. do it for yourself, for kiko, that’s it. ilagay mo sa isang super-secret multiple password folder sa computer mo, one photo a day chronicling your pregnancy. burn mo sa CD as a keepsake. maybe one day, when you’re a groovy 88 year old lola, when the world is more open minded about nudity, ipakita mo sa mga apo mo, sabay sabi ng “aba’y damuhong mga bata are a! maipakita nga ang aking mga nyud pichurs, tingnan natin kung sino ang hot chick ngayon, aber?!”
