How are you, guys? I have been busy preparing for our upcoming workshops these past few days. Aside from that, I’ve been scouting for strollers (aside from the baby furniture that I mentioned during my last update). I want those with really big wheels. I need this since I know that I will eventually go jogging after I give birth to get back into shape. I want to bring Baby PA along with me when he/she is big enough (around 7-8 months), while Baby PA rides in the stroller.
I have checked out almost all the stores in the metro finding one that would suit me. Unfortunately, I’ve seen strollers that I like, but they are way too expensive and others that are reasonably priced but don’t have the huge wheels that I like.
Well, what I did was check out some strollers on the internet and found this brand really enticing for athletic moms-to-be. This brand is called BOB.
It’s too bad though that they don’t have it in the Philippines. I really love this model that they have. It’s the BOB Revolution SE. This stroller comes in orange, navy, plum and black.
This stroller has the wheels that I am really impressed with. I noticed that it has a swiveling front wheel, compared to the other BOB Strollers that I saw. It also has a good suspension system, which is really important when you’re jogging and baby is sitting. I also saw some car seat adapters and they have adapters for Chicco, Graco, etc. car seats. These brands are available in the Philippines, so it will be easy to find a car seat.
The canopy has a viewing window, which let’s you check on your baby. Also, what I like about it is that it is easy to fold. Check out this video:

I’m still contemplating if I should get one from the States. I really like it. For a stroller like this, it will cost you less than Php 20,000 for the stroller (excludes shipping fees). I haven’t really decided yet, but I’m seriously thinking of buying this stroller. What do you think? Should I buy it?
For my Week 23 updates on Baby PA, here it is:
How far along? 23 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 21 lbs+ (from 132 to 153) This is my unofficial weight since my doctor’s appointment will still be on Monday… and i’m dreading that I might go over the four pounds allowed weight gain on Monday. Tsk tsk! 🙂 ‘Gotta go on that treadmill!
Maternity clothes bought? None yet since my last update.
Stretch marks? None… I feel the itch maybe around twice a week.
Sleep: I still get to sleep at 12 midnight since we wait for Baby PA’s kick at 11 pm at night. But nowadays, I wake up at 8:00 am! I love sleeping! Also, I have very vivid dreams. Yesterday, I dreamt that I was having my ultrasound and my doctor said it was a boy 🙂 haha!
Miss Anything? Yeah, not sweating all the time!
Movement: Yes, yes, yes! Kick, Baby, Kick!
Food cravings: None, but I have noticed that I’m always hungry 😛
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing anymore… I think.
Have you started to show yet: Yes, I think I’m showing already. All of a sudden, my tummy expanded.
Gender prediction: ??? can’t wait for Nov. 26
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button in or out? In… slowly moving out
Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody… I guess because I feel “hot” often.
Looking forward to: Knowing Baby PA’s gender!
I’ll let you, guys, know as soon as I find out the gender!
