It’s Showtime host Mariel Rodriguez shared on her Facebook account that she had to rush herself to the hospital on Tuesday (June 14) because she felt pain in her abdomen.
“I thought it could be gas, UTI or worse contractions but turns out my baby is just really playful. It was the baby's movements I was feeling!” she wrote.
Mariel was worried about her baby because of the naysayers who left comments on her Instagram account when she traveled to Amsterdam with her husband Robin Padilla.

“I was so paranoid maybe because people kept saying don't travel bla bla, don't eat this don’t drink that, too much negativity,” she added.
From now on, the TV host said she won’t let herself be affected with the comments.
“Truth is I won't do anything that would harm my baby… I am sensitive, hormonal and paranoid as it is what I need from people...their prayers not unsolicited advice.”
She also assured her followers that her she and her baby are ‘doing fabulous.’
“When I heard my baby's heartbeat again all the ‘pain’ was gone. It's all in my head (oops). Will relax now and enjoy my pregnancy and pray for a healthy baby!!!
“Got a strong baby here... just like daddy.”
Mariel will also take a temporary leave from the noontime show to be able to rest.
“I was so relieved to hear my baby's heartbeat again. So far my baby is doing good but I just have to rest this out. Thank you to my ‘Showtime’ family for being so understanding and supportive.”
