Week 26

August 21 - My second to the last check-up with Lola OB. Yes! I'll be going back to Philippines next month to have my baby delivered there. I was checked for presence of bacteria in my vagina and will be getting the result on September 14. Baby is growing fine and malikot as usual.

This time I requested Lola OB for a medical certificate (in English) since I need it for my air travel and also for my check-up in the Philippines. I had to pay 5,000 yen for the document. I know it's mahalia but I need it. Pikit mata na lang na bayaran. I'll be getting it a week before my flight.

I just remembered a comment from Fiel-kun (one of the three readers of my blog) asking if I'm going to give birth here in Japan and if my child will be a Japanese citizen. They're not the exact words but somehow related to that. Anyways I will be giving birth in the Philippines because of the following reasons:

- By the time I'll be giving birth winter is approaching here in Japan and I wouldn't want to risk my baby's health as well as mine. We might not bear the cold temperature.
- I want to give birth with my mom in a hospital where there is no language barrier.
- Super mahalia ang manganak dito. Pramis!
- It would be very hard for Basuraman and I if I'm going to give birth here since there's only the two of us. At least in the Philippines we both have our families in case we need help.
- I don't want to complicate the birth certificate of my child and I don't want to deal with the shitty service of Philippine Embassy in Tokyo. Baka pati anak ko ma-stress.

I think Japan doesn't give citizenship by birth unless one of the parent is Japanese. So in our case since we're both Filipino, eventhough our child is born here in Japan, his/her citizenship is still Filipino. For details pakitanong si Mr. google. Tinatamad ako e.

If ever Japan gives citizenship by birth I think there's a chance tha I would choose to give birth here. But it still depends on the situation. I am still not sure about it.

Malapit na naman akong mag- "Hello Pilipins!" ^_^
