My Letters To The Little One

…love letters from the Mommy

Post # 25

on November 7, 2011

Hi Leetol One.. Or should I say… LEETOL BOY!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ We found out last Saturday, at a nearby clinic. Daddy and I went at around 10:15 AM, and we were third in line. The lady before us took so long, that I got to the ultrasound room at around 11:05 AM. The sonographer made me feel comfortable as she glided the transducer with lots of cold gel on my tummy. She was very nice and chatty. ๐Ÿ™‚ When she asked me if I wanted to know your gender, I said yes right away. ๐Ÿ™‚ Then she showed me your jingly jangly organ — and she said you were a boy. I was so happy I let out a shriek! ๐Ÿ˜€ Mommy was trying to hold back her tears, as she did not want to look so emotional in front of a complete stranger, but I was very very happy to know your gender, regardless if you are a boy or girl. The joy of knowing reminded us of the fact that I wasn’t just pregnant person, but I am carrying another person inside of me. A little boy is inside of me. ๐Ÿ˜€

Daddy cannot wait to see you, but he was also quite worried that he’d be late for work. Good thing he was able to wait for a few more minutes — he knocked at the room, to tell me he had to go, which was also the exact time the sonographer found out what your gender was. Daddy stayed for a few minutes too, as the sonographer showed him your different body parts — your heart, spine, belly, legs, arms, liver and of course, your penis. ๐Ÿ˜€ย He also saw you deliver your very strong kicks.ย Your Daddy went straight home to take a bath and get some of his things, as he only had a few minutes to go. His face said it all, according to Grandma, as he walked inside the house, straight to the kitchen. ๐Ÿ˜€ Her exact words were “Yung ngiti nya, lagpas tenga” (His big grin went past his ears)

I got home a few minutes later, and Grandma gave me a hug. ๐Ÿ™‚ Everyone’s so happy for you Leetol Boy. ๐Ÿ™‚ Your Daddy was so happy on his way to work, he could not stop grinning even in public. He also forgot some things too. ๐Ÿ˜€ I, on the other hand, cannot stop talking about the details of the ultrasound. Grandma and I watched Cars 2 on DVD, as I wanted everything to be as boyish as possible. Mommy got the results late that afternoon, and I showed it to Grandma as soon as I got home. Here are your pictures, Anak. (Sorry for the low quality, I just took them using the webcam… Don’t worry Leetol Boy, Mommy and Daddy will buy a new digicam within the month, so we can take more pictures of you!)

Those are pictures of your abdomen and your head. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think this is your belly… or whole body. I’m not really sure. ๐Ÿ˜€

Now, these are pictures of your head and legs. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sorry Baby, the first picture got ruined, I think I spilled something

on it. Anyway, these show your face, your penis and testicles. ๐Ÿ˜€

The ultrasound report. ๐Ÿ™‚ According to the U/S, you are 23 weeks

and 3 days old last Saturday. But according to Mommy’s LMP, you were

24 weeks and 5 days old. ๐Ÿ™‚

On to other news,ย Mommy also bought your bottles already! ๐Ÿ™‚ Too bad I couldn’t take photos of them, as I already left them at home.ย Mommy bought 4 9oz. wide necks bottles (it’s sort of a buy 3, take 1 promo)ย and 1 5oz. wide neck bottle, all from Tommee Tippee.ย  The 90z. bottles were priced at P1,499.oo ($34.97)ย and the 5oz. bottle at P449.75 ($10.49), so all in all we spent P1,948.75 ($45.46). Not bad, right? We will get more bottles soon, the ones that come with your sterilizer. ๐Ÿ™‚

And to the most important news of all —- Great Grandma and Grand Aunt Mia knows about you. ๐Ÿ™‚ They’re not mad — well, maybe they were initially, I’m not really sure, but what’s important is now they’re not. They are also wishing the best for us. ๐Ÿ™‚ Leetol Boy, it is such a relief that they already know. Mommy and Daddy have been extremely worried for the past few weeks, and Mommy’s finding it very hard to hide a 6-month-old belly in front of the neighbors. Mommy can still hide it, but not too well. What Mommy finds disturbing though, is the fact that a lot of men still stare at her. Daddy says it’s because I’m a sexy pregnant lady. LOL. Your Daddy’s very much a bolero — and I like it. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ย Did you know that a month ago, one random normal-looking, mid-20’s dude asked for your Mommy’s number while crossing the street?! I looked visibly pregnant that time!! Your Daddy was quite convinced that you might be a girl — because of that idiot notion that when aย pregnant woman glows, she’s carrying a girl. AND YOU HAPPEN TO BE A BOY. ๐Ÿ™‚ A very, very handsome boy. ๐Ÿ™‚

What I’m a little worried about is your Great Grandpa, because we couldn’t call him last weekend, because of the bad weather. Once he gets to know about it, Mommy and Daddy will feel very much relieved, and we can proceed with our wedding planning. Daddy and Mommy will prolly go to our prospective venue this weekend, so please pray very hardย that we still have some slots open, okay? ๐Ÿ™‚

Daddy’s doing fine at work, by the way. He finds it not so tiring, compared to his last office job, which made him work 12 hours a day. Let’s pray your Daddy does well in his job, so he’ll get promoted in a short time’s notice. ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, last night, Mommy suffered a real bad heartburn attack. I was on the verge of crying because of so much pain. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I felt like someoneย sucker punched me real bad, and the pain ascended to the chest area.ย Daddy, Mommy and Grandma prayed really hard that the pain would pass, and it did, thank God. Dr. Tumbokon said that my esophageal sphincter was prolly relaxed because of pregnancy, so she advised me not to eat too much (bummer) and to avoid spicy and fatty foods. She also asked me to take an antacid, and if things are still bad, I should go to the clinic today. So far, Mommy’s pretty much okay, after one bout of bowel movement and a slew of number 3, vomiting. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ One antacid, glass of cold milk and some Efficacent Oil later did the trick.

*sigh* Leetol Boy, you have made us giddy happy this weekend. We love you very veryย much. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Mommy and Daddy have decided on a name a few months ago, and now that we know you are a boy, we are going to call you by your name, LUCAS RAM. And no, we did not name you after Sen. Bong Revilla’s slain half-brother Ram Revilla, who died weeks ago. We named you after Luke, the physician and historian who wrote the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts. Also, from George Lucas, who made Mommy’s all-timeย favorite movie saga, Star Wars. ๐Ÿ™‚ย Yourย name Ram is from your Daddy’s name, Amram. ๐Ÿ™‚ Over my ____ body will I name you Junior — cause if I did, years from now, your playmates might laugh at your name cause it sounds so old-fashioned — and besides, there are too many boys with Juniors appended to their name — Daddy’s youngest brother, Tito Jun and Mommy’s half brother, Tito Jun-jun included.


~~~~~Luke, in Greek ฮปฯฮบฮฟฯ‚ (lukos) means “wolf“, or from the Greek word ฮปฮตฯ…ฮบฯŒฯ‚ (leukos) (<PIE *leuk- “brightness”) means “bright”. (From Wikipedia)

~~~~~Bringer of light, morning.(From

RAM —-

~~~~~The Biblical baby name Ram is Hebrew in origin and it’s meaning is exalted. (From

~~~~~ย Ram means โ€œhigh, exaltedโ€ or โ€œmighty.โ€ (from

P.S. —> You are a sly Leetol boy, Lucas. ๐Ÿ˜€ย You keep on giving swift kicks when Mommy’sย teaching her students, so I suddenly put my hands on my belly out of surprise! Also, you gave the sonographer a hard time taking pictures of your penis, as you kept opening and closing your legs! ๐Ÿ˜› The sonographer said you kept on moving — A LOT! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hahahaha! ๐Ÿ˜€ Mommy’s not mad though, I’m actually very happy that you are very much healthy inside my tummy. WE LOVE YOU AND WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

P.P.S. —> Some of your ninangs already know your gender, including your ninangs here in the office. They are very excited about you, Leetol Lucas. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Mommy Tin says:

    Congratulations sis! ๐Ÿ™‚ Lucas is a wonderful name (sounds very ‘gwapo’ too. I’m sure your little boy will be, coz you’re super pretty. :-)). ๐Ÿ˜€ You should try the 4D ultrasound sis when you reach 26-30 weeks.. It’s a bit pricey at around 3-4k, BUT definitely worth it. Oh the joy of seeing your Leetol One moving inside you, really priceless.

    Again, congratulations! Bring on the blues and grays, time to shop for baby boy stuff! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • The Mommy says:

      ^Thank you for the comment Mommy Tin! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hihihi.. Thank you for the compliments na rin, you made me blush! ;D Yes, we are going to try 4D ultrasound, pero around 34 weeks na siguro. ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re getting ours at the clinic where I’m about to give birth, at 1,800 pesos ๐Ÿ™‚ OMG, a simple 2D ultrasound make my eyes misty —- the 4D will prolly reduce me to tears! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you for sharing our joy… Yeah — blues, grays, whites and khakis… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Segue lang, have you always been on WordPress? Or maybe your new theme is throwing me off. Haha! ๐Ÿ˜€ You take care of that little bugger! Hugs to the belly! xox

    • Roxi says:

      Pahabol, don’t you just hate heartburn! Oy! The worse part about it was not eating too much! Hahaha!

      • The Mommy says:

        ^Naku Sis, I soooo hate heartburn —- it feels like a heart attack (although I haven’t had a heart attack before :P) Bummer talaga, I enjoy eating a lot pa naman, to make up for the first trimester na I did not get to eat a lot, because of the queasiness.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • The Mommy says:

      ^Thank you very much Sis! ๐Ÿ™‚ I agree, baby boys are sweet talaga… ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m also very happy kasi puro girls kami in the family.

      Yeah, WordPress lang ako palagi. New lang yung theme ko. ๐Ÿ˜€ Pero I’m still looking for another theme pa, I’m not quite satisfied with this one eh.

      Thank you for sharing our happiness! ๐Ÿ™‚
