Countdown to 37

I'm now on my 33rd week.  4 more weeks and the little bundle of joy who is currently somersaulting in my tummy will be with us physically.

I can't believe we're almost in the home stretch.  And I'm starting to feel excited and nervous at the same time.  I kinda hope I will be able to give birth on March but according to my OB, that won't be possible.  And honestly, I'm already looking forward to bringing this baby out.  I'm just excited to see him.

Everything is just so different for this 2nd pregnancy.  From the minor spotting that I had when I was only about 10 weeks on the way, to the "paglilihi" stage, to the appearance of my linea negra and "pagmamanas".  It's really true when they say that every pregnancy is different.  Now I can't which pregnancy is more difficult.

Aside from the worries of actually giving birth, I am also thinking a lot on how we will be able to cope with having another baby, without a helper, and both of us working full time.  A lot has been going through my mind since the day I found out I was pregnant.  I know babies bring luck to the family.  And I know that this baby will do bring us all the luck and fortune that we are needing especially now.

Jakob, we are so excited to see you and to hold you in our arms.  We know you will bring us joy and happiness just like your Ate Jenika.  We may not have all the wealth in the world and we may not be living in a rich country, having you and Ate is enough for us.

We love you baby, and see you very very very soon!  Be a good boy for now inside mommy's tummy :)
