Tapioca Oreo Pearl Shake

The first trimester of my pregnancy is taking my appetite on a roller coaster ride. Although, I wanted to throw up everything, but I had to make sure my stomach has something to digest since my body is at work twice as much. I want to nurture my baby eventhough the smell of some foods is killing me.

One of the joys of pregnancy is enjoying your food cravings while your hubby gets it for you even at 3 in the morning. However, one of the pitfall of knowing how to cook is, when I crave something, I make it happen. My usual problem was, most of the food I craved wasn't available here so I had to make my own.

I had a craving for Zagu. Zagu is a brand name for a Tapioca pearl shake I loved way back 10 or more so years ago when still I was still in Manila. I have used and tried different types of tapioca available here in U.S but none of them successfully comparable to this...Boba tapioca is available at Asian store. This tapioca is chewy, sweeter by itself and very easier to cook. And for the shake, just blend ice oreo cookies and milk.


Not all stories have happy ending. After enjoying my zagu, my morning sickness kicked in and I threw up. Bummer.


Someone Special is Coming

I stared at it for the longest time. I remember it lasted about a few minutes. Now the two purple intersecting  lines made quite an impact that would change my life forever.

Maybe I was reading it incorrectly? Are those really two lines or it was actually just one because I can bearly see the other line. There was a hint of denial. I went to the store and got another one, but this time it will be for sure. I did it again and digitally confirmed, "Pregnant".

I felt my blood drained from my head. Everything stopped for a moment. I was dumbfounded then my thoughts ran like the speed of light. I have summed my baby's course of life from childbirth fast forward to adolescence. Then, my thoughts reverted to "what will become of me?".

When I found out we were having a baby, It wasn't like the movies when I'm over the moon. Tiny cute clothing's and flaunting my bump were my least concerned.

I am growing another human being whom in the future is capable of either hurting me or loving me unconditionally. This stranger would come in my life who potentially could take everything I have and or be my everything.

I only fell deeply in love once. I have sacrificed and loved my husband to the fullest. The fear of losing him eats me, so what more of my flesh and blood? My husband reminded me that this child is not our possession but only entrusted in our care to find its purpose to contribute for the benefit of reflecting God's glory.
