How I prepared for my Pregnancy

Pregnancy is the most wonderful or sometimes most difficult part of being a woman.

Conceiving after the loss of my son Hutch became difficult for me, and it took years as well as a miscarriage before we got lucky with Dumpling. 

After having a miscarriage I quit my bad habits which included smoking,drinking and irregular sleep patterns. Good thing that my husband also did the same.

I started eating much healthier and took vitamins to make sure that my body was healthy enough to accept a pregnancy. 

Lo and behold, after 6 months we found I was pregnant!

During the pregnancy we also moved out of our very dusty along the road apartment then moved into a very much greener area in Marikina. Fresh air galore!

Pregnancy should always be carefully thought of, since both mother and child should be able to sustain the 9 months that you both go through.

I also started an online diary of my pregnancy journey through that allowed me to interact with other expecting moms especially if I needed advice on pregnancy since I lived far away from my mom and stocked up on reading material for both Papatin and I.
Tips for those wanting to get pregnant or currently expecting:

✅ Try to avoid unhealthy processed food, cook your food fresh and drink plenty of water. 

✅ Smoking and drinking is a no-no. 

✅ Consult you OB-Gyne for any uncomfortable feelings you are experiencing.

✅ Always keep happy thoughts! 😄

Lucky for those expecting and soon to be expecting moms who will be going to the Baby & Family Expo 2013, there will be a talk on Pregnancy Preparation entitled: What to Expect when expecting by The Medical City. This talk will be able to answer your questions about pregnancy, especially if it is your first time to become parents.
