My Baby’s weekly development (1st 10 weeks)


Mary Janine’s arrival

February 1 @12:30 am – Unexpectedly, I started to feel pain in my lower back and in my lower abdomen. At first, I thought it was just a normal pain and when I told my husband about that, he told me that it might just be apanuhot. (I don’t know the English term for that). I texted my mom about how I felt that time and she said that I was experiencing the labor contraction. Around 6 am we went to the hospital together with my husband cos I was afraid that I might have the actual labor at home. We stayed in the hospital till noon and I was still experiencing the awful pain. I always asked my husband to rub down my lower back every time I experienced the contraction (there’s always interval in every contraction) because that’s the only way to alleviate the pain. The pain I felt that time was totally hurting as in hurting that you can’t explain. (I could say that, that was the most painful feeling I ever experienced). The contraction lasted until 2:30 pm and moments later, I felt the most painful contraction that will make you feel like dying. That moment, the midwives asked me to walk going to the delivery room but (my goodness!) I couldn’t move my feet even as single step because of the pain. So then, they helped me while I was taking my steps going inside the delivery room.

I was always calling God’s name when I was inside that room.

At 2: 55 pm Mary Janine came out safely and I thank GOD for that because he helped me how to make a strong push.










Baby Position in womb

I am now on my 36th week of pregnancy and I am starting to feel a little anxious as my due date comes closer. I keep reading articles that speak about pregnancy, parenting and motherhood and on how to deal with our little ones, the moment they arrive.

Let me share to you this content I have read as I was doing a little research about parenting. It’s very useful because it’s about determining your baby’s position in your womb. As mothers and soon to be moms, you also need to be aware about your baby’s position inside your womb.

Here’s how you can determine the position of your unborn baby yourself:

1.      If your belly and navel pop out and/or you feel kicks under your ribs, chances are your baby is in the anterior position, with his or her back facing your front.

2.      If your belly appears slightly flatter and/or you feel your baby’s kicks at the very front of your tummy, your baby is probably in the posterior position, with his or her back next to your back.

3.      If you feel a lump near the top of your belly (usually on one side or the other) push lightly on it. Then:

  • If you feel the whole baby move, he or she is most likely head down, meaning you pushed on the baby’s bottom.
  • If the lump you feel moves by itself, without the rest of the baby’s body re-situating inside your belly, then that lump is probably the baby’s head, which moves independently of the rest of the baby’s body.

4.      If you feel your baby’s hiccups lower in your belly, then the baby is head down.

5.      If the baby’s hiccups are higher up in your belly, or even above your belly button, then your baby is most likely head up.

6.      If the baby is kicking above your belly button, he or she is head down and in a good position for labor and birth.

7.      If you’re feeling extreme abdominal and rib pain, and you’re in the later stages of pregnancy, then your baby is probably head up with his or her head close to or under your ribs. If you don’t have this pain, your baby is probably head down, not breech.

8.      Using a fetal stethoscope (or even a toilet paper roll), have your partner listen for your baby’s heartbeat. Then:

  • If the baby’s heartbeat is low in your belly, the baby is head down.
  • If the baby’s heartbeat is either level with or above your belly button, the baby is head up.

Fetal Positions inside the Womb

To give you an idea, the most common positions that babies assume in the womb are:

optimal position — the baby’s head is down and the baby is facing the mother’s back. This is the optimal and most common birthing position

occiput or cephalic — the baby’s head is down, and the baby is facing the mother’s abdomen. This position results in back pain and a prolonged labor.

transverse — the baby is lying crosswise in the uterus, side-to-side over the mother’s pelvis, in a horizontal position rather than vertical. Usually, the baby’s head will be tilted more toward one side of your pelvis or the other and the baby’s shoulder will be pointing toward the birth canal.

complete breech — the baby’s head is up, so his or her bottom will enter the birth canal first. Both the hips and the knees are flexed (or bent).

frank breech — the baby’s head is up, so his or her bottom will enter the birth canal first. The hips are flexed (bent), while the the knees extended straight out.

footling breech — the baby’s head is up, and one or both of the baby’s feet are pointed down toward the birth canal.

It’s a baby Girl

“A baby girl…one of the most beautiful miracles in life, one of the greatest joys we can ever know, and one of the reasons why there is a little extra sunshine, laughter and happiness in your world today.” I love you baby


End of my 6th month pregnancy

At the end of 6 months:

  • Fetus is 11 to 14 inches long
  • Weighs about 1-3/4 to 2 pounds
  • Eyelids begin to part and eyes open occasionally for short periods of time
  • Skin is covered with protective coating called vernix
  • Fetus is able to hiccup

I can’t wait to see my little angel next year…
