5 Months and still growing...




Whew! Now I have reached the halfway mark! I'm feeling well now with more energy but still tired in the evenings. I can feel my baby making jerky movements inside once in a while. I still get surprised! I am having cramps at night, and it's getting difficult to turn around and get up from bed. Now I am wearing maternity clothes because my stomach is really expanding fast.
I decided to invite my sister to come over from the Philippines to join us when I give birth in February, and to stay with us for six months. She will be a big support and assistance to us when Reiner and I are at work and Rae is in school. I just finished the e-application for her, and sent her all the documentations that she needs to show the Consulate at the US Embassy in the Philippines. Hoping that she'll be granted her Tourist Visa soon.
Reiner and Rae are very excited. On Monday, I will know the gender of the baby. I hope it's a boy! Rae is hoping for a sister and Reiner wants a boy too. We'll see...
UPDATE 10/30/ 2007: I just had a sonogram, I'm having a BOY!

Congratulations again. Your baby boy is truly the Lord's blessings to you and your family. Matagal kasi nasundan yong panganay mo kaya medyo naninibago ka. Feeling mo para kang nanganganay ulit. Good Luck! Kaya mo yan. Take Care and God's blessings be with you always.

Congratulations Marisol! I didn't know that you're expecting a baby.
You should have a baby registry at BabiesRus or Target, then post that
on your blog so that people can get baby stuff for you.

Thanks for the good news. Take care.

Hope to see the photo of your baby boy soon! I'm still adjusting here in Manila and will probably get more settled in a few weeks. I'm just tapping into an open wifi system for now ....:)
