The Second Trimester is when baby starts getting very active and busy withdevelopment. Baby is growing hair: those beautiful lashes that you’ll adore when you play “peek-a-boo” and those pretty little eyebrows and lustrous hair are starting to sprout at this stage. Baby is also practicing her reflex movements like swallowing, kicking, “punching”, and sucking. At this stage, you’re probably starting to feel those little feet kicking and jumping up and down your belly. Isn’t it the most precious feeling in the world? Baby isn’t just a little bump in your belly,you now get to finally feel your baby and interact more with her!

FIRST TRIMESTER.Pre-natal Needs: Tests and Costs, Vitamins and Supplements.

Being a first-time mom, I sure was clueless on pre-natal care, needs, prices, and costs. Learning how to spend your money wisely and work on a budget was my first task on being a new mom.You wouldn’t imagine the costs of bringing a child into this world! So, I wanted to give myself a lot of options when it comes to choosing the proper pre-natal health care provider, hospital, medicines/supplements, and budget-friendly ultrasound or testing centers.
Pre-natal care requires a lot of tests to ensure you and your child’s health, so it’s very important that you find affordable, yet credible testing and ultrasound centers.

Adventure Day 1

Several months ago, I found out I’m having a baby! No words can express how felt when I found out I’ve been blessed with this wonderful gift.
I took two different pregnancy tests and both turned out positive. I couldn’t believe my eyes! That morning, I went to see my OB-GYN at St. Lukes Medical Center. I showed her my tests and she said, “Two tests can’t be wrong.  Congratulations, you’re pregnant!”. She requested a TVS (TransVaginal Ultrasound) and did a Pap Smear right away. I proceeded to the Women’s Health Care Unit for the test and saw my baby for the first time.
The feeling was just so inexplicable and incomparable. I saw my almost 2 month old baby’s very strong beating heart! Right then, I knew this little angel would bring so much joy to my life and I promised myself I will do my best to be the best mom  to this wonderful child.
