MANILA, Philippines – Mariel Rodriguez rushed herself to the hospital after feeling pain around her abdomen.

Mariel is now on the second trimester of her pregnancy.

“I rushed myself at the hospital thinking something was wrong because it was a feeling I have not felt before,” she related in her Facebook post on Wednesday. “I thought it could be gas, UTI or worse contractions.”

However, she was told that “it was the baby's movements I was feeling!!!!" and felt relieved after hearing the heartbeat of her baby.

The Kapamilya host said that she got “paranoid” after reading negative comments on her Instagram account.

She has received “negative comments” on her account after her recent trip in Amsterdam to visit her husband Robin Padilla, who is there for a spiritual journey.

Mariel said she would no longer listen and respond to unsolicited advice from others.

“I'm not going to let comments affect me anymore. I am sensitive, hormonal and paranoid as it is what I need from people...their prayers not unsolicited advice,” she said. 

Mariel also told everyone that “I won't do anything that would harm my baby.”

At the end of the post, she said she won’t be in the noontime show “It’s Showtime” for a while to have enough rest.
