a journey to motherhood

“Having a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart walking outside your body” – Elizabeth Stone

“I had my period delayed which rarely happens, i felt so tired doing stuffs i normally do, i was gasping for air after taking a few steps on the stairs, i felt like i’ll be having my period which never happened. What’s wrong with me? Am i sick or im just old?”

Those were the feeling and the questions on my mind before i decided to try a test. A pregnancy test that is.

So what made me decide to take a pregnancy test?

  • Tender, swollen breasts – yes
  • Nausea with or without vomiting. – yes
  • Increased urination. – yes
  • Fatigue. – a big YES
  • Food aversions or cravings – not really
  • Slight bleeding. – yes
  • Cramping.  – no
  • Mood swings. – no
  • Dizziness. – no
  • Constipation. – yes

6 out of 10 signs were a yes so we bought one and it turned out positive, much to my parents and my partner’s delight.

I’m 13 weeks as I write this, and i found out that I’m indeed will be having a child on a Friday the 13th (June 13, 2014). Who says Friday the 13th is unlucky? For me it was a very lucky day indeed. It’s like winning a lottery.

I had a few bleeding so we had an ultrasound on my 6 weeks and here how baby looks like:

So little that baby looks like a peanut stucked on my tummy. What amazed me is my next check up 2 weeks after this ultrasound was taken. 10502476_10152269268282157_6471881787189909796_n

The little peanut 2 weeks after already looks like a baby with his/her head, arms and legs. I never thought that in 2 weeks he will grow up so fast and that’s the probably the reason why my flat tummy before now looks like i swallowed a little pillow.

Me when i was on my 2nd month and it’s already obvious. I wonder why other moms doesn’t look pregnant in their 2nd month. I must be having a giant kiddo. Haha!

Today i had my baby’s heartbeat checked and we can now hear it using a Doppler, a device that they use to listen on baby’s heartbeat.

6 more months and we’re gonna see our little one. I’ll be updating this blog for this wonderful journey as i now start a new chapter in my life.

Summer is the stuff of dreams.

When adults sit at their desks, and children sit in school, they dream of summer. Summer is the time of infinite fun. The day seems to last forever, and the fun never stops. It is a time of romance, excitement and an enhanced enjoyment of life.

Somehow summer never seems to last long enough. It is always over before we get a chance to fully experience its power. This is true of all things wonderful. They always seem too short.

as the palaces burn

I’ve been following Lamb of God for a few years now. Listened to their music, watched their DVDs and now seen their documentary movie. And I’m pretty sure that my first ever post here was the #freerandyblythe post. *let me check* yup my first post. Countless support was given by the metal community for Randy, but what do we know about what happened?

Lamb of God is supposed to have a performance in Czech Republic but they found themselves confused when Blythe was arrested at the airport for manslaughter. Blythe’s counsel posted the Czech equivalent of $200k in bail, but he still found himself inside the prison walls of a Czech jail, facing 10 years in prison for the accidental death of a fan that was injured during a 2010 performance in Prague. He was freed for some time raising the bail to $400k. Videos of the victim surfaced on the web, allegedly Blythe pushed him to the crowd hurting his head. The fan did it several times, one video showed that he was pushed by a guard and a video launching himself to the mosh. And the courtroom drama began.

According to them, this is supposed to be a movie for the fans by the fans. They wanted to feature their supporters all across the globe but because of this tragedy, the cameras turn 360 degrees to Randy.

My take on As the Palaces Burn- Lamb of God, its entertaining and insightful rockumentary that turns into a nail biting legal thriller after Randy was arrested and had trial on court. It’s amazing how he and the band held it all together and become a better individuals. Sometimes extreme metal fandom can go south if you’re not responsible enough for your own actions.

A must watch if you’re a fan of Lamb of God or if you’re into metal music. It’s not all about Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll afterall.
