Unlike most pregnant celebrities who have photos of their flawless tummies on Instagram, Nadine Samonte's is "puro pasa."
On her post a week ago, she wrote, "I'm not ashamed on how my tummy looks like. I'll do every thing for our little angel.
"I'm just happy kasi ayan siya oh sa right side again hehe.
"Nakakatuwa kahit minsan nakakagulat and masakit konti pero nakakatuwa naman at nakakataba ng puso hehe.
"Super excited mom here hehe.
"Puro pasa tiyan ko because injections twice a day pero konti na lang."
She's having Heparin injections for APAS, which stands for Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome.
According to thepoc.net, it is a condition where "a person’s antibodies are sort of on overdrive—they sometimes mistake their own body cells for foreign invaders, hence, attacking them. The antibodies attack all foreign bodies—which includes anything related to making a baby."

Among its symptoms: the baby's slow weight gain and drop in her amniotic fluid.
When Nadine posted the photo, she was 31 weeks pregnant, but the baby weighed 1.2 kilograms.
Nonetheless, Nadine has been positive.
She has been taking 53 tablets a day, and has been friends with injections for six months now, but she's happy to be on the home stretch of her pregnancy.
The actress told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an interview, "Mahirap, ang gastos lahat-lahat, pero I know super worth it."
