Prayer for a Safe Delivery to St Gerard Majella

O great Saint Gerard, beloved servant of Jesus Christ,
perfect imitator of your meek and humble Savior,
and devoted child of Mother of God, enkindle within
my heart one spark of that heavenly fire of charity
which glowed in your heart and made you an angel
of love.O glorious Saint Gerard, because when falsely
accused of crime, you did bear, like your Divine Master,
without murmur or complaint, the calumnies of wicked
men, you have been raised up by God as the patron and
protector of expectant mothers.Preserve me from danger
and from the excessive pains accompanying childbirth, a
nd shield the child which I now carry, that it may see the
light of day and receive the purifying and life-giving waters
of baptism through Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen.

At 33 Weeks

Im now at 33 weeks praying na sana umabot pa nang 40 weeks.The baby is fine and she's now so active and she's responding so well to Baby Plus. I now have my Non-Stress Test twice a week and im glad everything is fine. I have another ultrasound on October 16 and hopefully everything goes well.

Dami pang dapat gawin di pa maayos para sa pagdating nang baby. Kailangan pa namin bumili ng another cabinet para may lalagyan ng gamt The doctor says na baka mapaanak ako ng maaga due to increase levels of protein in my urine. I asked him what can i do to prevent it wala naman syang masabi. I have a pre-natal on Wednesday and if elevated pa rin baka ma confine pa ako ng Sat and Sunday next week so that they could run a few tests.

Unang reaction ko di pa ako ready sagot sa akin no one is really ready for a baby. Sabi no you dont understand my baby shower is not yet the 20th of October.. hahahaha yun ang inisip ko agad. Saka most of the baby stuff is with my SIL like the stroller, the playpen, the baby clothes and the blankets sa 20 ko pa makukuha kasi she offered to wash it and make sure malinis na lahat. Touched talaga ako kasi ang bait ng SIL ko. Ang nandito sa bahay are some items like the bottles and the breast pump and carseat.

Saka naayos ko na rin ang binyag eto ay gaganapin sa Dec 9 kailangan na lang mag attend ng seminar sa November 4 kasama ang mga Ninong and Ninang and Parents. I know iniisip nyo grabe naman ako wala pa ang baby na plantsa ko na kung saan sya bibinyagan.Kasi kailangan dahil darating ang parents ko so kailangan may date na talaga. Iniisip ko yung reception sa Gerry's gagawin hopefully bukas na sila pag dating ng December.Kaunti lang invite namin strictly Family and Ninongs and Ninangs lang.

Another Update

I'm still having Braxton Hicks contractions.. Thank goodness I have an appointment tomorrow they can check if the baby is okay. On another note I was watching Christian Bautista sing and he fumbled with the words of Lupang Hinirang and naawa talaga ako sa kanya kasi he felt really, really sorry afterwards. Syempre pa sa Eat Bulaga pinagtawanan nila yung tao. Naiirita na naman ako kasi why kick people when their down. They also used him para paringgan si Willie.

I'm now on my 31'st week. In 6 weeks I could give birth already but of course I would want to wait till I reach my 39th or 40th week til I give birth.I'm still not prepared. Have to get the big items from my SIL and we have to buy one closet to be used by the baby. GD is still a pain but it's almost over.I'm not going to miss the prickings and the injections. I've been having some contractions lately which comes and goes.According to my doula those are just Braxton Hicks. It started last Friday when I tackled the big mountain of laundry and it went on the whole weekend. Thankfully it went away and I have another appointment on Wednesday. I am now a happy wife because Philbert "volunteered" to tackle the laundry and the vacumming. Now if only I can get him to do the cooking and the cleaning and preparing Joshwa for school then I can be one happier wife. But thats wishful thinking on my part.

We finally decided on a first name finally and her name is Adrianne or maybe the spelling will be Adrienne. The middle name is still up in the air i want it to be Marie not Marie' (hard to pronounce) but Philbert thinks its best to stick to just one name.

It's just so weird that many people kept asking me hey have you been to the area near the Port. To eat some great seafood well they say that feel of the place is sort of what Dampa has. And I kept saying no sorry not yet when most of the people I know kept raving about it even my friend from Baldwin Park has been there and they've been to the parks here and we even have a local Aquarium Attraction here in our city that we've never been to. Unfortunately Philbert is a homebody so he doesn't really like to go out.I guess its because when he's at home he just wants to rest , play with Joshwa, tinker with his pc and watch tv. But I do tell him we have to go to this seafood place but he says we'll wait until I give birth because according to what he read seafood isn't good for pregnant women and that is another weird part because my husband doesn't like to read.

10 Weeks to Go

I can't believe it 30 weeks na ako. Kaunting tiis na lang.. All this pains and pricks and aches and discomforts will soon be over. I can't wait pero at the same time di pa talaga ako ready pag dating sa mga gamit nang baby. I'm sure we'll manage somehow.. I was supposed to attend a childbirth class at the hospital but I have to skip it because its in the afternoon and by then Joshwa will be home already. Thank God I have a doula who can walk me thru this entire process so that I don't have to go to the childbirth class.Malapit na and before you know it the next photos i'll be posting are the baby's photos. Super curious to find out kung sino kamukha? kamukha kaya uli ni Joshwa or kamukha sya ni Philbert? Malapit na.. kaunting tiis na lang this will soon be over soon.
