Kris Aquino gives update on her pregnancy

Apr 2, 2007
"Hindi ako makakain, doktora, kapag walang kahit konting teaspoon ng sugar. Hindi naman talaga [marami], kahit konti lang sa oatmeal I'm happy [na]," pleaded Kris to her doctor. The doctor advised her to stay away from simple sugar because of her gestational diabetes.

"Nararamdaman ko na talaga ‘yong pain. 'Pag sumisipa, sobrang sakit. Mabigat na ‘yong sa likod 'pag tumatayo, 'pag naglalakad, 'pag pumupunta sa banyo, or kaya kung nakaupo ka while eating, or 'pag nagko-computer. The only thing now is hirap na akong mag-sleep. Restless ako for the whole night," said TV host-actress Kris Aquino about her pregnancy in a taped interview with The Buzz.

The TV host-actress is pregnant with her second child—her first with husband James Yap. She has a son, Joshua, fathered by Phillip Salvador.

GOOD NEWS. A month ago, Kris decided to temporarily leave show business until she gives birth to Baby James. She reasoned that the issues surrounding her marriage is affecting her pregnancy.

Hope Centeno, a former employee of Belo Medical Group, admitted on national television that she allegedly had an affair with James.

James denied Hope's allegations.

Since the controversy began, Kris was rushed to the hospital twice because of "premature labor pains," endangering her health and that of the baby. She was also diagnosed with gestational diabetes, a type of diabetes that occurs only during pregnancy, according to mayoclinic.com . The doctors also told her that the baby is underweight, weighing barely 3 lbs.

Kris, now on her eighth month of pregnancy, visited her doctor at the Makati Medical Center last Friday, March 30. She had several tests done, checking up on how the baby is doing.

"Ang magandang update is 6 lbs. ang na-gain ko. That's really good for the baby so happy talaga," Kris announced.

Baby James weighed 4 lbs. and was said to be doing well. Kris was still advised to have a complete bed rest and to stay away from sweets.

The expectant mother said, "Exciting na kasi dineliver na ‘yong crib, lahat ng mga baby accessories, ‘yong bathtub, car seat—andoon na, lahat inaayos na! Ang nagawa ko lang ‘yong mga clothes, newborn to three months, labahan na tapos the rest, itago muna. ‘Yon iyong mga preparation na ginagawa. Lahat ng mga gamit niya, basically baby blue and maong."

Kris is due to give birth on May 6.
