On her latest social media post, Nadine shared a photo of her bruised stomach and the injection she takes daily to ensure her baby’s safety.

“[Every day] is a struggle but [it’s] more of a blessing. Feeling my tummy grow [every day] is what [I’m] thankful for,” she began on the caption of her post.

“This journey is particularly different from my 2 kids. We almost lost our baby during my first trimester but with [God’s] grace and Guidance hindi [niya] kami pinabayaan (He did not forsake us). God is Good.”

She also shared the treatments she takes: intravenous IVIG, Proluton, and Innohep inoculations, Lymphocyte Immunization Therapy, “and more to come.”

“Not complaining but hey I can say [I’m] one strong momma here fighting for my babies,” she said. “Ang dami kong iniyak sa journey na to hehe pero (I cried so much in this journey but) I [won’t] give up EVER! [I’ll] fight and stay strong for them!!! Go APAS and PCOS mommas out there. Kaya natin to. (We can do this.) Hello to our rainbow baby soon.”

It was only last month when Nadine and her husband Richard Chua revealed they are expecting their third child. Her two other children are Heather Sloane, born in 2016, and Titus, born in 2019.
