...dead tired

*sighs*

i am so tired. both of my wrists hurt.. my joints are aching and i have this shooting spasm that hits me on my left hip..i have no idea what position causes it! nabibigla na lang ako sa painnnnnnn. i think my seldom-used muscles were challenged by tsugtsug. from his last checkup, he is now 9.9lbs! i don't know how i'll be able to carry him in the succeeding months.. maybe my arm muscles would grow bigger too? lol. carrying him is like having a total workout.. triceps, biceps.. pati muscles sa thigh, tapus cardio workout (when i try to rock him to sleep... imagine 30 minutes of walking, semi-jumping while carrying 5 kilos).

it's all worth it.. once i see his eyes closed and his mouth open. nyahahha.

good thing his daddy is visiting soon! yahooooooooooo! yey pangs! he'll be here on the 21st. don't forget my bilins nyahaha. i asked for more baby stuff.. hopefully, they won't turn into baby junk! hehe. in n@w, (newlyweds at work) i asked what baby purchases they regret and recommend.. turns out one's regret is another mother's recommendation.. so iba iba din. mga regret ko so far is yung crib.. but its still early, so hopefully he'll be able to use it once he is a bit bigger. (pang kulong ehehe) i asked pangs for a sling, some nursing blouses (i dunno where to buy here!) and an automated rocker.

tsugtsug's rashes are beginning to subside too! yey! i use cetaphil on his face.. and mustela dermo-cleansing gel on his body.. i really like the mustela products. its pricey, but its a big bottle and i only use a little.. so i'm pretty sure it'll last a couple of months. haaay, if i only knew, i should've used it from the very beginning. di gusto ni tsugtsug yung pigeon toiletries. sayang, mabango pa naman.

meh nabasa ako sa net yung 'how motherhood changed me'.. eto yung akin:
- i have a new hobby.. making cotton balls
- when constipated, i do a 'inhale-push-1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10-exhale'. works much better!
- i can finish(gulp) a meal in 5 minutes.
- i have a new skill.. i can tie a ribbon using only one hand. o-ha. (i tie a loose mitten while holding him)
- i changed from a no-cup to a B-cup!! bwahahaha.

sige, yun muna.. tulog muna ako habang tulog ang baby.

its really the first 3mos of the baby that is most tiring. cant imagine living in another country without household help and a baby.

and no its not an urban legend may mga babies na nasosoffucate becoz of their moms boobies.

at true minsan maiiyak ka na lang kapag ayaw nilang ma2log at antok na antok ka na.

geWi said...

oo, minsan duet kami umiyak ni gavin eh ehehe.

nakatapon na naman ako ng pinump ko.. naiyak na naman ako lol!

geri, try mo sa "havin' a baby". parang may nakita ako dun dati na nursing blouses. glorietta/landmark area. actually, may part lagi ang mga mall na devoted to mommy and baby stuff! masarap din magshopping jan!

geWi said...

See you soon pangs and tsug tsug!

nyahaha! mas madalas ang fountain moments pag baby boy, i assume? =P

btw gewi, i love the last item, no-cup to B-cup! as long as my boobies won't sag right away, i'm in for the bigger ones! *lol*

and amgine, thanks for rubbing it in... in another country without househelp. buti na lang wala pang baby. =P magi-import ako ng yaya, aka, si mama.

goshness, everywhere i turn, my friends are either giving birth or getting preggy. oh, and may kilala din kami nag-ampon naman. kalurkey! =P

gewi, binibigkisan mo ba si gavin? para saan ba yon?!

ay, and dunno kung nagkasipon na sya, pero ginawa mo na ba yung hinihigop ang ilong ng anak? *ewwww!* hahaha!

geWi said...

lol harbie! meh nasal aspirator na, hindi na hinihigop. parang pump sya na maliit.

tapus hindi ko na binigkisan. mas matagal daw maghilom yung umbilical cord pag ganon. si gavin nga, parang 10 days pa lng, tanggal na. mas magandang nahahanginan yung pusod.

andito na si pangs!!
