I was adviced by my doctor to use a maternity support belt, since my tummy is not normal. It’s quite low that when you see me, you’ll think I’m about to give birth, but I’m not. So, my husband bought me a maternity belt that really helped with my back pain and my SPD (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction). I used the belt when I was 13 weeks pregnant up until I reached 20 weeks of pregnancy.This is very convenient than it might seem, the site. I would like to recommend it to you today.
When I reached 20 weeks, the belt is getting smaller since it was only size medium. My tummy is getting bigger so I need a stronger support belt. My husband, the ever reliable researcher, found out about Gabrialla maternity belt. He found someone from Multiply who’s selling it. I contacted the seller and asked her if a stock was available. Good thing one was available. After three days, I got the belt.
I am listing here the foods I am planning to eat after pregnancy. I’ve been deprived to the following listed below since I get pregnant. Sweets are allowed though but to a minimum. My husband doesn’t allow me to eat ice cream and chocolate cakes. He also asks my mom, who cook our food, not to put too much salt. After I give birth I want to eat the following:
- Coffee – hope I could drink this as soon as I’m allowed normal food intake after delivery, even if it’s decaffenaited
- Cake – I want some chocolate cake
- Ice Cream
- Chips – Tortillos, Cheetos, Pringles, Mr. Chips
- Instant Noodles
- Hotdogs and Bacons
I’m only on my 22nd week of pregnancy and thinking it’s still too early to buy baby items at this stage. When I was pregnant with my first child, I think we shopped for clothes on my 7th month. We didn’t buy much since we thought babies grow faster so it would be a waste to buy a lot.
Now, I can’t do any shopping since I’m on bed rest. It would be my hubby who will do the baby shopping. Knowing him, he won’t buy until it’s really needed and that would be when I reach 8th months pregnancy, LOL. I can’t argue though since we live near the mall and there are still newborn clothes that the babies can wear if ever.
Salcedo Market is located at Jaime Velasquez Park, which is between Tordesillas and Leviste. The Park, which is usually empty during weekdays, are flocked with buyers and office workers to get some yummy foods or buy fruits and some seafoods for home.
Salcedo Market is open only every Saturdays, at 7am to 2pm. It’s better to go early before lunch time since there are lots of food to choose from, unlike when you go there after lunch, where mostly leftovers are what would be available.
