FILLE Cainglet-Cayetano appears blissfully radiant in sharing her excitement for her second baby. And like a true athlete, the former Ateneo volleyball star is adjusting quite well to the demands of pregnancy after learning from her first childbirth experience.
In fact, Cainglet-Cayetano, who is four months pregnant, was blooming in white sleeveless top and blue jeans as she showed no sign of a difficult first trimester.
The 26-year old wife of Taguig congressman and TV director Lino Cayetano and mom of Ino Philip, who will turn two on May, knows that every ounce of pain and discomfort is worth it.
"Noong first time ko magbuntis, mas scary kasi hindi ko alam. Pero ngayon alam ko na ang feeling and what to expect and I'm looking forward kung anong magiging itsura ng magiging baby girl ko," she said.
"Noong first trimester ko maselan ako magbuntis. Tapos nag-high risk pa ako noon [at] na-bed rest. Pero dahil may little Ino na ako alam ko na worth it talaga siya," she added.
Cainglet-Cayetano's current cravings include meat, especially fast food in the wee hours of the morning, and her husband is more than willing to oblige.
"Right now 'yung mga cravings ko ganoon pa rin. Gusto ko meat lalo na fast food," she said. "Mag-o-order ako in the middle of the night pero ngayon tina-try ko talaga mag-control and to eat healthy kasi nga syempre for me and for my baby."
"Feeling ko pinaglilihian ko siya (Lino) kasi minsan gusto ko siya awayin. Minsan naiinis lang ako basta 'di ko alam kung bakit," she added laughing. "Pero sobrang supportive ni Lino, lahat ng cravings ko binibigay niya.
"Minsan in the middle of the night gigisingin ko siya, sasabihin ko, 'Lino gusto ko nito.' Minsan naman kakain kami sa labas basta kahit anong craving ko pinagbibigyan niya."
The mamathlete knows that all the calories from her meat cravings will soon get in her way of getting back in shape post-childbirth, which is why she includes quick and easy workouts even while pregnant.
"Ngayon nagwo-workout na rin ako para paglabas ng baby, balik alindog na," she said with a hearty laugh.
While her first born was named after the mix of the couple's names, she bares they have not yet agreed on what to name their baby girl. But she hints that it will surely include Fille, which means girl in French.
"Wala pa naman ang hirap kasi mag-isip ng name pero siguro may Fille kasi girl," said Cainglet-Cayetano, who is due to give birth sometime on August.
