after the OB visit

We’re back in Japan after our 10-day vacay in Manila and Davao. Lots to be thankful for in that trip! We were able to have bonding time with my family and friends over lots of good food. Had my fill of milkfish and Papa’s great cooking as well! End result, I gained more than 3 kg in 3 weeks – far too excessive for my own good. I almost laughed when I saw our Ob’s expression when he saw my weight on my boshitetcho (mother-child record book). Almost laughed only because it was my weight after all.

Ob then told us to try and control my weight gain; of which I am positive that I can since we’re back in Japan and hence can now resume my daily walks to and fro office.

After the ob visit this morning, we had lunch at the nearby family restaurant. This is mainly why Japanese maternity hospitals and clinics don’t give away prenatal vitamins.


The Japanese basically have such a healthy diet. The spinach side dish alone can take care of your daily requirement of folate and iron.

After lunch, Hubs and I decided to make the 15-minute walk to the station to try burn the extra weight we’ve gained thus far. With this kind of view along the way, I absolutely wouldn’t mind walking further than 15 minutes. With a comfortable 19degrees C temperature at that!


Baby, so glad to see you again this morning. 🙂 Mommy and Daddy were squealing with delight as we saw you rolling and twisting about. Love you. 🙂
