That's our baby at 8 weeks, 5 days. Yes, Myke and I will soon be mommy and daddy! :)
As soon as two red lines appeared on the home pregnancy kit that I've used, I had mixed emotions. Happy and excited that we were blessed to have a baby and yet I was a bit fearful especially after I had my miscarriage
. So when I was lying on the bed and waiting for the sight of our baby during my ultrasound, I was a bit apprehensive. But once we saw the baby, we were relieved that the baby's ok. Hearing the baby's heartbeat for the very first time was a truly unforgettable experience. I'll say it was just a beautiful sound :)

I am not a connoisseur when it comes to the arts but I know how to appreciate the beauty of one's work. When my BFF and I visited a well-known pottery in Ilocos, I was amazed how adept the potter was and even mesmerizing to see a hunk of clay turn into a beautiful jar. Such feeling of admiration was replicated when I had seen the works of Araceli Dans.
It was a blessing that I had managed to score some coutesy tickets thru H, an office colleague who happens to be a relative of the artist. The exhibits were on the first and third floors of the Ayala Museum. The first floor showcases most of the artist's calado paintings which she is known for. Calado are (almost lace-like) embroidery designs that are similar to those in Barong Tagalogs.
Some more outfits I wore to the office. I'm now exempted from wearing the company uniforms given my "condition" *wink* but expect more photos of me mostly in flats. Mahigpit magbantay si hubby :P
L: Jacket and skirt from Landmark + pearl necklace + Melissa flats
R: Tea for Two button down dress + vintage jacket + Janylin silver studded flats
These are not freckles. If they are, then I think I can't do a "mestiza" look. :P
I got these when one evening last week, I felt nauseous and just had to throw up. After which, hubby had commented that my face had gotten all red. I though it was kinda like a red as in flushed but no, I had gotten these red spots all over my face. :(
I was scared that it might be an allergic reaction so I immediately visited our company clinic the very next day.
