The Medical City or St. Luke’s Medical Center?

I have been going to The Medical City at Ortigas since I was still in college because it was near the condo I was staying at. I’ve been a sickly girl (very lucky I’m not getting sick so much right now that I have little boy inside me!) since I was young.

I wanted to make this blog so that I can share my experiences in pregnancy, preparing for the D-Day, and what happens when baby comes. Not only do I want it to be personal but I want it also to be an informative blog for other mom-to-be’s out there.
