33 weeks today!!!
Exercise was not forgotten but was not a priority since my Little Dynamo underwent his laparoscopic surgery to correct his VUR. Travel followed after… from Seoul to HK Disneyland to Manila to Iloilo to Guimaras, back to Manila and now we’re settled here in Cabanatuan… awaiting the arrival of the Baby Dynamo.
I have had time to prepare for my own “ME” time. My needs are simple:-). Equipped with an exercise mat and a pair of dumb bells, my “ME” time is fulfilled first thing in the morning. Even before my son wakes up, I sweat my big-bellied self inside our room. It’s anything goes after that.
Today, at 33 weeks I am heavy at 58.6kg. Not bad… When I learned I was 6 weeks pregnant, I started at 51.8kg
Little Dynamo is settling magnificently. He has his own corner for relaxation. His definition of relaxation is sitting down in his own small blue chair, writing or drawing in his own small blue table and making up his own stories. His energy is consumed when he goes out to his Lola’s garden and run around. When cousins visit, he gets even more sweaty and stinky. But no matter, he is a happy boy! What more could a mom ask for?

The past days had been H-U-N-G-E-R for me every hour or so. I eat and eat and eat… Fruits helped… yogurts are a blessing. I have yogurts delivered to my house every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
In my post The Not-so-Difficult Changes I aimed not to have any weight increase for the next two months. LOL. From 52.1 kg last April 11, I am at 52.9 kg this morning. Only three weeks ago… tsk… tsk… Vanity does not top the list of my concern but it would help not to bloat this early. Ideally, weight increase happens on or after the third month. Ugh! So much for the ideals!
We had sinigang for lunch today. I asked Tintin to bring me a sinigang mix from a Filipino store in their neighborhood in Ttukseom and she cooked it for lunch. I had sinigang and rice for snack and sinigang and rice for dinner. How’s that? I have no cravings for a particular food but I just get frequently hungry I feel the need to eat.
One thing I have to be thankful for, I have absolutely no desire to eat chocolates. And the ice cream pint I bought almost a month ago (before I learned of my pregnancy) remains in the refrigerator. Little things to thank for!

Our family of three went to the OB clinic (Shin and Hong) yesterday in Goengdeok. We were excited to know the gestational age of our new baby playmate.
We have a six-week old healthy, developing playmate inside my tummy!
