My Second Trimester with My Baby Alyanna Francesca

My morning sickness is waining now and was able to have “eat-all-you-can” at TAO JAPANESE restaurant @ 14 weeks AOG.  🙂

I am feeling better during my second trimester, it seems I am not pregnant at all except for my enlarging tummy. I don’t feel fatigue anymore, just like the first trimester and can resume on my usual chores like cooking our meals for my “baon”. No more threatened abortion and I can bear longer “lakwatsa” time. 🙂

I can say that this is the best time of my pregnancy. So I made the most out of it to roam around the beautiful places of Penang! 🙂   🙂

I had my prenatal  checkup in Loh Guan Lye Specialists Center in Penang. And I’m always looking forward on my ultrasound. I want to see her developments every month. Aside from that, I always read in Baby Center webpage to update every week what is happening inside my tummy.

This is her ultrasound at 14 weeks and 2 days. She looks more of a baby now, unlike from my previous ultrasound when she still looks like a tadpole,  along with the vestigial tail, wiggling her legs vigorously.

And now, there she is, with complete arms and legs, small fingers which she used to thumbsuck! It was really a miracle from GOD! She’s moving her legs, but I cannot feel her  discrete movements yet. I’m so excited in the next coming weeks to have QUICKENING (that’s her true kicks).

I don’t have anymore cravings to “munggo”. But I realized I am becoming fond of sour fruits like ponkan, and for chocolates it should be mixed with orange flavor.

my baby @ 20 weeks and 5 days

This is my baby at 20 weeks and 5 days.  During this week, I had already QUICKENING! Her kicks are so soft like that of a kitten! I thought that somebody poke in my tummy while sleeping, the first time I experienced it. IT IS A WONDERFUL FEELING that there is life inside of me!

I know there are millions of mothers around the world who had experienced this. And this is a new experience for me. A GREAT and wonderrful one!!! I felt really blessed about  my pregnancy. 🙂   🙂     🙂

During this week, my OB requested for my bloodworks (Complete Blood Count, Blood typing, HIV screening, and Random Blood Sugar-since I have a family history of Diabetes Mellitus). Everything turned out to be NORMAL, and I am so thankful enough, considering that I am diagnosed as  ELDERLY PRIMI, HIGH RISK. (LOL).

I suffered from bronchial asthma before, but when I got pregnant, I never felt even  BETTER. IT IS THE BEST condition I ever had. My asthma is gone!!!  Thanks to our Almighty God. I never had any attack, even if I eat chicken (that serves  to be the trigger).

Honestly speaking, I already prepared 10 vials of Hydrocortisone from the Philippines, in preparation of my pregnancy in case my asthma worsens. I have packed several syringes and abocath just in case i’ll have my attack before I went here in Malaysia. Fortunately, I was spared. 🙂   I am still hoping and praying that my condition stays at its best until I gave birth to my precious baby (A baby who came into our lives despite having a Polycystic Ovary Sydrome). God is really GREAT!

At 24 weeks, her kicks are becoming stronger, but not that painful, as what I read from other articles.  I am enjoying each milestones of my pregnancy, each week and her in-utero developments. I am still praying that I won’t have complications in my next trimester like Gestational Diabetes nor Preeclampsia.

Always praying that I will have a healthy pregnancy and of course, uncomplicated childbirth.

GOD is GOOD, and I believe in KARMA. Those people who had done the worst to others will suffer eventually, and I can see that coming.
