My Pregnancy Journey : Laboratory Tests

This is my fifth pregnancy but only 1 is full term. I already had 3 miscarriages and to ensure that this pregnancy will be on full term, I decided to look for a new OB who can take care of my situation. My new OB, learning from my history of pregnancy, requested me to have series of laboratory tests in order to determine what may cause my constant miscarriages. Laboratories such as glucose level, hepatitis, thyroid function tests, hematology, and APAS.  APAS Blood sample Results are mostly within normal range except for the glucose level which go a little bit beyond the normal range. So after a week, she asked me to have a higher dose of glucose test (100ml OGTT)  HOW OGTT IS DONE? There is an 8hour fasting required in order to be legible for this test. Upon arriving at the clinic, the nurse extracted the first blood sample. Then she gave me a bottle of drink that needs to be consumed immediately. It is very sweet and thick and at on

My Pregnancy Journey: The Day we knew you exist

It was nov 4, 2013 when i first felt your existence. The first test was a little unclear but i still believed it is a positive result. Pregnancy Test 1 So I had another test the day after.Result is the same, partial positive.  Pregnancy Test 2 Nov 14, i made another test. I haven't told my husband yet about this as i want to have a clear result before telling him. Pregnancy test 3 Now it is a clear positive result. This is my 5th pregnancy. Sadly, only one is alive. We had been waiting for our next angel to come and praying this is really is it. We only told our immediate family about my pregnancy as we are afraid it might not go to a full term pregnancy again. We dont want to get disappointed. We will wait for the right time before we tell it to most of our friends.

Going Crazy over #Teamkramer

I am not the type of person who follows celebrity/celebrities. But this celebrity caught my attention for the reason that she is very active in instagram and she was famous during my high school days. I started following her IG around middle of April (2013). Ms Cheska Garcia-Kramer is not the usual celebrity who posts what foods she is eating, what branded wardrobes she wears, nor parties or shoots that she's into. Rather, she is posting her daily life with her family,  her kids Kendra, Scarlet and Gavin, and from time to time her husband Doug is on the limelight of her IG. Other posts she did was the items that were given by some fans, shop/boutique owners, and friends. Items like bags,make up,accessories, cakes/cupcakes, stuff for kids, etc. Most of the shops are homebased or start up trying to build consumers through Cheska's IG wherein the market are families and audience are wholesome. Cheska is very kind to posts (most) of the items that she is receiving at no cost. 

Educational Tour - (CoSB-Rizal) Kinder

October 25,2013 is set to be the educational tour for the kinder(s) of College of San Benildo Rizal. Call time for the tour is 6:30am, so we arrived at the school at exactly 6:30am. Kids we're told to gather at their respective rooms first for some orientation and head count. Expected departure time is 7:00am but the group departed at around 7:30am. First itinerary is the Goldilocks decorate your cake at the Market Market branch.i don't see the logic why we need to go very far at the market market while we can do the Decorate your cake (dyc) at a nearer location for the convenience of the kids. It is a regular store by the way, not the factory. We arrived at market market mall almost 9;00am. The mall is still closed but the group is allowed to enter the premises on a special permit. We are seated fronting each other (kids fronting the parents/guardian/chaperon) so as to assist the kids easily. The kit consists of a mamon, an icing( choice of pink or blue), a topper, and a k

FAMILY: How to make a 15-day Menu Planner

In this time that everything is in rush, a working mom (or dad) should maximize her/his time by planning most of what they will do. One of the most helpful thing I made on my busy day is making a menu plan. In this blog, i will share to you how to make a menu plan for a week, or a month. On my college years, (i was a Hotel & Restaurant Management graduate by the way) we are tasked to make a one-month menu! and not just a simple menu, it should have a breakfast, morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner - 2 to 3 variants per meal. And it didn't stop there, it should have a recipe that is handwritten and converted into servings of 10-20-50! Anyways, what i will share to you is a simple menu planning. You should start with writing down the date of the month with the day on the side in order to determine the weekends. (i will tell you later in this blog why you need to determine weekeneds.) Then write down what meal are you planning to prepare for the family. Do you
