i will see you today!

i'm seeing A.J the first time today. i have an appointment with my OB-GYN Dr. Zunita today at 6pm.

Excited? extremely. i can't wait to see that little fetus in my abdomen.So is A.J's daddy.

owh. A.J is my unborn child's initials. :) and yes we have thought of what we will name him or her once we welcomed him or her into this world in november.

i was at my worst last week, i suffered from a terrible diarrhea and vomiting. funny when it all began after i took my first anmum materna. it seemed that i cannot tolerate with formula milk. i tried mamil mama a week ago and i got diarrhea. i was never a lactose intolerant so i find this very very funny. i don't really like the after taste of fresh milk so i am still going to try anmum materna again but this time i will take 2 scoops on every other day only (as advised by my OB-GYN) instead of 4 scoops twice a day according to the box. yes i am so by the book now that i am pregnant. maybe it's the hormone, or maybe i am such a control freak.

my baby daddy's craving for food is so wild these days. yesterday he craved for homemade burger, the kind that Robert Rainford would make in his License To Grill episodes. which we took the time to make, and we nailed it. the taste was incredible better-than-Chili's-or-the-like-comma-I-swear-to-God. it felt like we just died and went to burger heaven. and days before, it was cupcakes, (he drooled while watching DC cupcakes on TLC, it was that bad! so we went to Pavilion to get our version of DC cupcakes from Cupcake Chic!), and some other food we saw on AFC and TLC.

my morning sickness is slowing down, maybe it's because i'm nearing the end of my first trimester.i eat less but frequent now, so i hope it's a good thing, and i hope my unborn child gets all the nutritions it needs. mommy never fails taking Folic Acid and Calcium and it's all for you my baby!

A.J is 8 weeks and 6 days old today, only 218 days to go. at 8 weeks, this is how big A.J is in my belly (if you don't know already. Other mommies can skip this knowledge sharing session, :) )

Congratulations - your embryo is now called a fetus, which means "offspring". Your uterus expands to accommodate its new resident, which now measures approximately 0.6 inch / 1.6 centimetres. Many changes take place this week - the embryonic tail is gone, and all organs, muscles, and nerves are beginning to function. The hands now bend at the wrist, and the feet begin to lose their webbed appearance. Eyelids are beginning to cover the eyes.

Your pregnancy is changing your figure as well. Your breasts may have grown large enough that you'll need bigger bras with better support than your old ones. You may notice your waistline expanding as well, forcing you to pack away your favourite jeans until next year. If you drink plenty of fluoridated water - eight glasses or more a day - you should be getting enough fluoride so calcium and phosphorus will bond well in your baby's developing teeth and bones. 

that's all for today folks! i'll update again after the check up today. stay SWEET always!

from my check up, Dr. Zunita had calculated a new due date for AJ, if according to my period cycle, the EDD is December 2nd, 2011 and if according to AJ's size, EDD is December 7th, 2011. Scan image? Mommy will post in the next entry!

love from A.J's mommy;
