Our birthday month is over and so are the celebrations and now is the perfect time to blog before I forget the teeny tiny details of what seems my “hope to be a future business venture”… PARTY PLANNING.
At first, we’re thinking of doing it old school, you know the usual venue in your house, cooked meals, balloons and all… but considering the space, weather (soooo hot), parking spaces (which is a huge concern to MY DAD) and manpower needed we decided against it…
Birthday packages are a life saver! Especially for a new mom like me whose quite overwhelmed these days. Usual birthday packages come with a 3 hours use of an air-conditioned venue, food, host, party decorations, prizes, loot bags and a mascot appearance. So its a hassle free, just show up kind of party which is very appealing to me 🙂 A Jollibee party came to mind first because you know… kids. But the thing is, Seb still don’t know who the bee is. So not yet. Maybe on his 7th birthday.
A first time for everything!
I am blessed to part of the few who had it easy in their first trimester. For a first time mom I am very thankful that I surpassed such pregnancy phase without much problems or aches. I’ll say it wasn’t much of a physical but rather it impacts more of my thoughts (the reason I wrote: Thoughts of a First Time Mom)
It took me close to 2 months to really grasped the reality of my pregnancy as there really are very minimal symptoms to begin with. I took me not just one (which isn’t so great, see: My Disappointing First Ultrasound) but two visit to different doctors before we’re able to confirm my pregnancy. See: Our Honeymoon Baby is here! but after that everything runs in smoothly.
Since that first disappointing visit to my doctor. I researched and learned everything I can of what happens during early weeks of pregnancy. From forums to health articles and I’m glad I did as it tells me one thing: It is TOO EARLY to tell. It is a usual result during such ultrasound at that time. Most advisable timeline would be at 8 weeks.
** I was kind of irritated to the OB-GYNE who did that “Disappointing First Ultrasound” for mentioning Ectopic pregnancy as it really scares me!
Moving on, comes my 7 week and 5th day (I can’t wait any longer) and visited other doctor. Much to my delight, my husband went with me and I guess we just needed Daddy and its confirmed! We’re having a BABY! What a wonderful news.
With 162 heartbeat per minute and an estimated due date of October 13 we’re elated! A little trivia: My husband’s birth date is October 10 and mine is October 15th. So the baby fits just right in the middle.
Confirmed first time Mom,
