Mid-pregnancy report!

Okay, whew, I've been gone for a week here! That's because I'm updating my lifestyle blog, Topaz Horizon. Ever since I became a work-at-home mom, my life has been more mommy than anything so I've been neglecting Topaz Horizon for, like, a year (whaaaaaat?!). So if you miss mommy me, jump on over to glamorous me (haha) because my life is not all about my kids, ya know!

So! Where were we? Oh yes. Mid-pregnancy report. Right. I'm 21 weeks now, just past the halfway point of my third pregnancy. This pregnancy is going by really fast, mostly because I'm preoccupied with the two kids already living so largely and loudly in my life, and partly because, well, it's the third time around. Nothing's a surprise really.

A few days ago, Vince and I dropped off our two boys at their grandparents' house and went off to St. Luke's Global to have our congenital anomaly scan. That's when a sonologist peers in the womb to check on the baby, ya know, if the baby has all its parts. I always find this scan so stressful. But, thank God, everything's there: the brain, the eyes, the nose, the mouth, the spine, the arms and legs, hands and feet, all ten fingers and all ten toes, the kidneys, the stomach, the four-chambered heart beating so strong and steady, and the penis.

Yes! Yes! We're having another boy!
Another one of these cuties!

We're so happy!

Vince was hoping for a girl and I wanted one, too, because I had found the most perfect name in the whole world for a girl. It's so perfect that every time I see other girls' names (including mine), I sigh wistfully. But a boy is fantastic! Three boys! Wow. Crazier times ahead! We can't wait!

Now we just need to find a name for the new little boy. Vince is already busy with that. He's always the one excited with the names of our kids. I love him for being even more excited than me haha. Four months to go! Can't wait to meet the little cutie!

  1. Gosh! Three booooys. Ang saya, as in ikaw lang lagi ang girl sa house. :) I wonder what name you'd give had it been a girl. ;)

    1. Thanks! I won't reveal the name just in case we get pregnant again haha. I'm pretty sure this is my very last pregnancy but Vince did say that if we get very very very rich in the next two years, we'll commence creation process =)

    2. May I just say that I literally did a LOL at the phrase: "we'll commence creation process" :)

  2. You are the queen of their lives and that's a really nice thing =) Congrats, F!

  3. Congratulations! Wow, another gorgeous angel to the Amper-Sales household. Can't wait to know what will be this baby's name. Hehe!

  4. Congratulations, Frances and Vince! Can't wait to hear the name of your third boy. :)

  5. Wow! 3 boys! :) Congratulations!!! :D The words that come to mind are fun and riot. :)

    1. Chaos!!! I expect to have an athlete and a rock star and a concert pianist! Kahit one of the three! =)

  6. Fun times ahead indeed. I remember reading Dekada '70 in high school, Amanda Bartolome and about having sons. Anyway just wanted to share that unlike you I was prepared for a boy's name but had a baby girl. I had already given birth (last Dec) when we finally decided on a name. :) Good luck on finding the perfect name for your little one.

  7. Wow congrats!!! 3 boys! You're the queen of the home talaga. <3


This is all pretty new to me so please feel free to share your mommy wisdom!
