But we are still keeping it as a secret . And since I am currently 34 weeks, might as well announce the name once i give birth. But let's see if I can still keep it a secret in the next few days ;P
I swear, we really had a hard time deciding for a girl's name. So i thought it would be easy huh?! It's a simple name though :) But we both love it.

But lately I found out about this website that provides parents with fertility, pregnancy, parenting advice and I tried taking a peek at their forum. I was able to learn a lot in a short time I was reading, and I also noticed that some mothers experience what I am experiencing now with my toddler, So i had an assurance that everyting is just normal at this stage. And even though this is my second pregnancy, I also read about getting healthy during pregnancy, and Im glad that they have a nutritionist that specializes in pregnancy. I highly recommend this site to my fellow moms out there. They have articles , forums and even videos that you can watch. Truly an educational site.

Last Saturday night, when I was putting him to sleep, Joaqui said to me , " Mom, lets buy fish and notebook tomorrow, ok? " I was so sleepy then , so I said OK.
Two weeks ago, he asked his dad for a fish already, but since he was admitted at the hospital, we have to postpone our trip to the pet store. Last Sunday , he had his simple wish.. a fish. The handy dandy notebook has to wait, I got too tired after buying some fish stuff and hearing mass, so we headed home after that. I'll get him a notebook on Friday night maybe.
I wish I can really get him something that really looks like the handy dandy notebook from Blue's Clues. I'll get 6 pcs if there's some available online. I might also checkout Asgi shoes while i do some notebook hunting.

You CAN’T use your name for the boy/girl name question.

SOMETHING YOU SHOUT : Sorry, i cant think of any .
I saw him with a writing on his face. He looks like "Batang BonnaKid" :) He loves to draw using a real pen (he knows that the aquadoodle pen wont write anywhere else) , so Im not shocked to see that our bed sheet has some lines and circles too. Ang hirap mawala sa paningin. He's just too fast, and Im too slow now to move :)
Look at his shirt, Cute noh?! Of course , My mom gave it to him Hahaha!
I went to a Christening last Saturday Afternoon, and I asked Gelo to take some pics, but after seeing myself, I decided not to post it for now, LOL. Finally, the pictures says it all.
I am Pregnant. I am 32 weeks pregnant !
I always have this feeling that I will give birth at 37 -38 weeks ( just like my case with Joaqui) , so I only have 5 -6 weeks left before my due. I wonder if it will be easy for me to lose weight after. Or would I continuously gain weight even after giving birth? Will a diet pill be effective in case I'll have a hard time shedding off those extra pounds? Let's all wait and see.

Saturday - Check up with his pedia, and he was diagnosed of a severe sore throat, thus the case of fever and a drop in milk intake. Little boy got into antibiotics and paracetamol.
Sunday - No fever anymore. He was able to eat a little , plus a little milk too. I noticed him touching something inside his mouth while eating.
Monday - Im in panic mode already, no milk the ENTIRE day ! He asked for it, but refused when he sucked the teats already. Positive! I saw a big Singaw at the left part. I knew it was so painful for him. Tried giving him milk thru the cup and straw, but still, he rejected.
Tuesday - AM - Still no milk intake. He's so irritable.. as in! Not the usual Joaqui . I sensed it already. I told my sister , " Candidate na tong si Joaqui" (candidate for being admitted at the hospital). He became clingy too. So i decided to go back to his pedia later in the afternoon.
Tuesday - PM - It was supposed to be just a check up, and we even plan to go to SM and pay some bills after. But that didnt happened. The moment his pedia saw him, she told me " Peach, admit na natin si Joaqui, he looks dehydrated" .. There! I knew it! When his mouth was checked, he got some other singaw pala! And one of his gums is bleeding a bit , and add to that some rashes at his torso. Panic mode agad kami ni Gelo ! I am definite, no rashes when I changed his clothes before going to the hospital, but when we were at his pedia, visible red marks talaga! Dengue Alert ang drama namin since he had fever for 2 days.
Tuesday NIGHT - As usual, it was so hard to get a room at UST that is covered by our healthcard. We grabbed the suite just to have a room, so that Joaqui can have his IV already, to keep him hydrated. Sayang ang oras, blood tests should also be done ASAP. Luckily, we dont have any incremental costs at the suite for the 1st night though its not covered by the healthcard. It is written at the terms and conditions that if no room is avail, the first night is free even if we are in a suite. Salamat!
Having nothing in hands but his bag owith 2 milks , extra shirt and diaper, Gelo and I decided to go home to get our stuff, while my sister and our helper stayed with the boy. It was raining really hard that night. We first dropped by SM for a little grocery of some things we will need . At 30 mins , we were done at the grocery and headed home, where i packed almost everything in my mind! Toys and books of course! At ang laptop! Hahaha!
He already have his IV when we arrived back at UST, and he was asleep. My sister said that he just cried, but not "nagwawala" like his previous cases when I was the one holding him. So better pala na wala ako dun, LOL. Would you believe, Gelo wouldnt want to see Joaqui in this scenario, ever! This is his 3rd already, but there was never a time that he held the little boy when its time for IV. He doesnt wanna see it daw, and he cant stand hearing Joaqui cry tremendously.
I am cutting this for now. Part 2 later.

When my husband had on / off fever a few weeks back, his urinalysis results showed a high amount of sugar in his urine. The doctor explained that in cases like this, the sugar is just too much that it comes out in a person's urine already. Since my husband's family has a strong history of diabetes, we had him scheduled for some blood sugar tests. I hope it's nothing serious for him. So I made a few online reading about the disease, and I never thought that there are types of diabetes, of course, something differs in their nature and prevention. I started reading more information about Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus , and I had some very useful information from Epocrates Online. It has a detailed and very easy to follow information about diabetes, from the basics, to diagnosis, treatment and follow up.It is always best to have even a little knowledge when it comes to our health.
“This announcement was paid for by Epocrates."

He has acute pharyngitis (a painful inflammation of the pharnyx , also referred to as sore throat; tonsils may also be infected ,thus makes eating painful ). He's under antibiotics and paracetamol in cases of fever, and if it will lead to coughing, I am advised to nebulize him too. Thankfully, no coughing until now. We stayed home the entire time. Hubby and I decided to re schedule our search for contemporary furniture at the mall. That can wait..
Joaqui's milk intake is now down to 4oz. (from his usual 8oz) ..he only eats a few spoons of rice today. Im too afraid that he gets dehydrated, so I make him drink water from time to time. The only thing that doesn't bother me now is that, he remains to be active and playful. If he gets all clingy , then that Sure is a BIG problem for me. Hope he really gets well soon.
