...ticket, booked

yup, finally booked our ticket to Pinas. we're going home and we'll be staying there for quite some time(me and tsug).. till i have babynoname delivered, and who knows after that. can't wait.. yes, it'll be very hot (at least it rains here in the afternoon), there will be brownouts (hay) but hey... there will also be my parents, mangoes (i've gotten used to the awful mango after taste here! time to eat the real thing!) chowking halohalo, dinuguan, hopefully a good yaya, and i'll finally be able to see our newly acquired Ford ranger pickup hehe. (actually, it's really my dad's but it's technically paid for the dp, we're paying for the amortization and it's in raymond's name.. teka, naisahan na naman kami ng tatay ko haha)

this saturday is babynoname's checkup.. hopefully he/she will open his/her legs and we'll be able to see the gender.. i'm secretly hoping for a girl (guess it's no longer a secret) but either way, it's fine. there are a whooole lot of pros if it's another boy.. tsug has tons of stuff he can share and i don't have to worry about him getting pregnant or other worrysome things that just comes along a baby girl. also i have to remind myself to be VIGILANT about the name giving. no more pulling stuff out of the hat while i'm heavily dosed in morphine. (that's why tsug has this awful, awful second name of Laurence.. do you know that they don't abbreviate the middle name here in sg? that's why tsug has this horrendously long name 'GAVIN LAURENCE ESPINOSA ARENAS' every single time) i will get the name finalized ASAP! and husband only gets one veto power. use it once and you're done! lol.

on tsugtsug updates.. he knows how to count from 1-10 (when i show him 11-15, he just says random stuff like 'awa', 'gaba' and pretends to know), knows his alphabet (he has memorized a lot of words too.. when he sees 'D-O-G', or 'P-I-G' spelled he'll read the word and say dog, or pig or duck or whatever.. i credit Word World) , also knows how to draw 'eyes, nose, mouth' and a flower (just a circle with a stem).. circle shaped is a cinch for him, but we're now working on his triangle. he knows his colors (even purple) and sings his twinkle twinkle little star and ABC (you might need an interpreter, though) and knows his Yo gabba characters by name plex (lex), muno (mumo), foofa (ha-ha.. don't look at me, i have no idea how 'foofa' became 'haha'), toodee (dee), broby (broby! favorite nya tlga hehe).

that's it.. i created a wish list in amazon for babynoname.. libre naman mangarap diba? hehe. si pangs nga gusto ng bagong stokke eh! lol!

sige, that's it. meh batibot na ba sa pinas? sana meron na. bye guys!

...super lazy

that's what i've been feeling these past few weeks.. i just want to lie down ALL day which is not even remotely possible. i want to sleep till 10am, eat then lie down again.. watch my favorite shows while lying on bed, maybe eat ON the bed if i can get away with it.. or maybe i can go on some beach resort, drink mocktails (yes, while lying on a hammock) and absolutely do nothing.. *sighs while singing* "pangarap ka na lang baaaa..."

it's not that i'm not getting support from my husband.. far from it.. but i still feel alone sometimes in this pregnancy.. and of course, i have this nagging feeling that i'm not taking care of myself better.. i've been taking babynoname for granted.. i sometimes forget to take my prenatal vitamins.. i haven't been eating well (or at all..) i've been sipping coke and munching on lays.. (just a few sips and a few munches lol) .. i'm not even blogging about him/her that much.. AND his/her ultrascans are all over the house, if not entirely missing. i've been feeling so down with this pregnancy.. i'm at home, hardly any adult interaction, and have been neglecting tsug a bit.. i've been doing it the easy way.. letting him watch tv or play the iphone instead of trying to play with him..i'm aware i'm doing this but its just so hard to find the energy to get off the couch..

at least i've been eating more.. i would be asked "ano pinaglilihian mo?" and my answer would be the same..."nothing". i didn't like anything. everything smelled bad thus everything tasted bad. i had zero appetite. and i would get sick and throw up which is something new to me. with tsug, i only threw up from motion sickness from a taxi ride.. now even brushing my teeth makes me sick.. i have to be very very careful in doing it.. then your husband will tell you "it's all in the mind"..i wanted to scream at him "oh my effing gawd, seriously!? tell that to all the preggers" it's NOT just in my mind.. i woke up one day and the nauseousness was gone. and believe me, i wasn't thinking positive thoughts then. lol. it's what you call "2nd trimester".

haaay. i'm gonna.. guess what? yup.. lie down now.. while watching V.. aliens are extremely entertaining.
