On Monday, June 27, Neri took to Instagram to give an update about her pregnancy. In the post, she mentioned that she is on vacation in Tagaytay while the weather is very foggy.

"Nakalabas din si buntis at nagke-crave ng carrot cake na maraming cream cheese, don't judge at buntis ako, haha!

(The pregnant lady was finally able to go out and been craving for some carrot cake with a lot of cream cheese, don't judge because I'm pregnant haha!)

"Hindi talaga ako nagsocial media ng a month ata kase nagpapahinga lang ako at ayaw ko rin ng may mga kausap. Gusto ko tahimik lang. Mga kapatid, asawa ko, at nanay ko lang kinakausap ko. Mga kaibigan ko, hindi ko pa rin kinakausap, haha! Kaya sa mga friends ko, hello! Alam ko miss na miss nyo na ako! Haha!

(I was not really active in social media for a month I think because I really wanted to rest and I did not want to talk to anyone. I just wanted to be quiet. My siblings, my mom, and my husband are the only ones I was talking to. I was not even talking to my friends haha! So to my friends, hello! I know you all miss me already. Haha!)

"Yes, maselan ako magbuntis. Kaya maraming iniiwasan. Bawal stress. Happy thoughts lang lagi. Hindi rin ako nanonood masyado ng TV maliban na lang kung Game of Thrones, House Hunters International, or Flea Market Flip. Kapag nakakabangon naman ako at di nahihirapan, I paint. Or nagpa-puzzle ako. Or kumakanta, hehe!

(Yes, I'm going through a very difficult pregnancy. That's why I'm avoiding so many things. Stress is not allowed. Happy thoughts only.  I don't watch TV either except if its  Game of Thrones, House Hunters International, or Flea Market Flip. If I wake up and not having any difficulty, I paint. Or play a puzzle. Or I sing. hehe!)

"I am very thankful kase super ako alagaan ng asawa ko kahit gaano pa sya kapagod sa trabaho at byahe. Kahit nahihirapan ako, andyan siya lagi at napapagaan nya kahit papaano ang pakiramdam ko. Kaya saludo ako sa lahat ng mga mister na andyan para sa mga misis nila lalo na't nahihirapan magbuntis."

(I am very thankful because my husband really takes care of me no matter how tired he is from work and from his travels. Even if I'm having a difficult time, he's always there and he lightens whatever I feel and go through. So I salute to all the husbands out there for their wives especially those who are going through difficult pregnancies.)

Neri also said that unlike her previous pregnancy, she is now experiencing all the symptoms of an expectant mom.

"Iba ang pagbubuntis ko ngayon kumpara last year. Lahat na lang ng symptoms ng buntis, pinakyaw ko. Mahirap pero hindi ako nagrereklamo dahil ang dream ko talaga maliban sa magka-farm, ay maging housewife at maging mommy. Di bale na ako yung mahirapan basta okay at safe si baby.

(My pregnancy now is different from last year. I'm going through all the symptoms of a pregnant woman. It's difficult but I'm not complaining, because it has always been my dream not only to have a farm, but be a housewife and mommy. It doesn't matter that I will go through a hard time for as long as my baby is okay and safe.)

"Salamat sa lahat ng prayers nyo. Sinasabi sa akin ng asawa ko mga messages nyo. Di ko hawak lagi ang telepono ko. Iwas talaga ako now. Gusto ko relax lang at tahimik.

(Thank you to all of oyu for the prayers. My husband shares all of your messages for me. I don't hold my phone all the time. I'm really avoiding it for now. I just want it to be relax and quiet.)

"Salamat sa pagmamahal nyo." (Thank you for all of your love.)
