Baby 2 Adventure

1 Comment

I feel so guilty not religiously posting updates for baby 2 — not posting any actually. Sorry baby! I have all the time in the world yet I feel so lazy and tired and uncomfortable all day. This second pregnancy is way different from my first. I am having vomiting episodes that usually ends in the hospital because of the never-ending vomit. If not, there is usually discomfort in stomach, or I’ll have LBM, or I feel like tummy is getting hard every so often.

As of writing, I am on my 10th month and 5 days. I hope after the first trimester, this pregnancy blues is over. My first pregnancy parang wala Lang, I can do anything like I’m not pregnant. Now, I can barely walk for an hour straight — either sasakit likod, titigas ang tummy… Or naduduwal and end up burping or farting. Ayayay! 

Looking forward to my 12th month and hopefully all will be better 🙂

I look into my wordpress account, and I have lots of working drafts that I haven’t finished, and published…

But I have this exciting news that I am going to skip all other events of last year. I’ve got 2 great news actually. 1) THE purchase. I am not that comfortable in sharing details yet so let’s leave it at that for the meantime 🙂 2) We’re expecting!!! Yes, you read that right… We are having a baby!

After I missed my period, I already had a feeling. Because I don’t miss periods. My first attempt to try pregnancy test was 3 days after my supposed start of period. Nada. Super faint line that I think my eyes are playing tricks on me. The second test came 5th and the third came on my 6th day… All have faint but more definitive 2nd red line. The thing is, it takes 15mins for the 2nd line to appear, yet the package says 3-5 minutes, the correct reading should show already. So that is frustrating me. I am sure I am, but the PTs are not confirming it. Gotta note that this is the first time  I am using PTs… So pardon the ignorance :p

On to THE day.

The first Saturday after my missed period is definitely an OB day… And indeed, it is confeeermed!!

We are truly blessed. It hasn’t been long since our conscious effort to try, and with one polycystic ovary working… A baby is formed. Thank you Lord! Such a great blessing and 2014 is just starting! 🙂 🙂

Hong Kong 2013

As an extension of Sachi’s 4th birthday celebration, and the visit of Tita Amy in the Philippines, we had a family trip to Hong Kong (sans Daddy).

Since I am too late in posting, I’ll just share some photos on my drafts, for my file 🙂

Mommy Week

1 Comment

It’s been a roller coaster of emotions, thus a lot of stress… But like any challenges encountered, life goes on.

The 3rd week of July was “Mommy week” in Sachi’s School. Mommies were encouraged to volunteer to give a small talk to the kids. Despite all the dramas happening that time, I just had to set it aside and squeeze, in my work schedule, this school activity.

I brought 2 girls from Posh to give quick pampering treat to the kids, and since I cannot think of anything to give that is nail care related… (I thought of giving nail clippers as a giveaway gift, but Sachi kept telling me not too, meron na daw mga classmates nya nun– I seriously believe if she was a bit older, she’d be telling me “nail clippers aren’t cool mom” lol). So I ended up making makeshift frames for the handprint artwork we’ll make, so at least they have something to bring home.

I was happy that I participated in this activity, I see my daughter’s pride the fact that I volunteered.

I was about 30-mins late for work though 😀

At the end of that week was Mommy & Child Day, this one day where the school prepares activities especially for mommy and kids.

And I say again, I appreciate ISYC for these small yet significant activities for their students. Oh, and did I say that our Teacher for this school year is the school president again? (yey!!)

Lies, Doubt, Trust Issues

Leave a comment

I have been asked why I didn’t ever doubt the yaya of my kid.

First off, I am not built that way. If there is no evidence, before I doubt others, I try to put the blame on me first — I must have misplaced it, I must have been too lenient, I must have asked too much… Or I blame it on circumstances, maybe she just had a hard day, maybe she’s tired.  Call me engot as you may, I am just not built that way. I am a benefit-of-the-doubt kind of girl.

Second, if you have someone you put your kid’s life into, you have full trust in her. If I didn’t, she should not be in that position in the first place. (Such a BIG lesson learned right here). I am a believer that all people are good. Maybe that is the reason why this is all happening. It’s time to keep all guards up. And the universe is sending me a lesson, IN BULK.

This yaya issue is the least of my problem actually. Draining as it is, it is at the bottom of my life challenges now. That is how bad this month is turning to be.

I have other trust issues, similar to this, where you trust is 100%, and in just a blink of an eye, they turned out to be your worst enemy. And to say it is part of it all, I just can’t accept.

Imagine having 2 consecutive blotter causing incidents, another internal agreement – can you imagine what’s in between? Explanation, tears, shouting, nerve wrecking anger – Just too emotionally drained.

And to cap all these trust issues, the most important, the one that is life changing, the one that cuts me right to the core, is still about to come…

Naalala ko tuloy ang sinasabi ng anak ko pag mabigat sa pakiramdam ang kanyang iyak “my heart is breaking, it’s really really broken” with these trust issues, exactly how I feel.

Family is number ONE.

Lucky to have a loving and caring husband. Plus a big bonus is my sweet, smart and adorable daughter. I thank God everyday for this blessing.

Whatever challenges we have and will encounter, in both my families, I lift everything to you, Lord.

Pandora Love

2 Comments

Why do I like Pandora?

Pandora is sterling silver. Just like Tiffany’s or Thomas Saabo. As a brief history on my preference, I have a mother who can pass as a jeweler… there was a time she got really addicted to jewelries, she was the mother of all blings. She loves jewelry and I get to have hand me downs-my very own- at no cost (yes, lucky me!).

Modesty aside, I never had any inclination towards Tiffany’s. It’s a popular brand but never did I go to their website or get ecstatic when I see those powder blue boxes. But, I was honestly eyeing Thomas Saabo last year. I love charms! I love the idea of having my bracelets look chic and personalized. And even if it is simply silver, I am indifferent. Besides, I don’t think I can afford an array of white gold charms on my own if that is the material that comes with it.

To cut the story short, I never got to own Thomas Saabo (nor Tiffany’s), but hubby did! I got him a T.S. bracelet last Christmas. For whatever reason I had that time, I couldn’t remember, but now I know why… because the universe has another brand in store for me. It got my attention… and apparently my “addiction”!

I love the thought that I can buy a charm for special occasions, events, milestone… I am a very sentimental person, so this reason right here tops why I like Pandora. Instead of buying another material thing that would end up on the shelf or the messy pile after a few months… why not get a charm and end up creating a unique jewelry, made with lots of sentiments?

My first Pandora bracelet ♥

So yeah, I got myself a new project!

Arm Candy

Wearing it along with my favorite bracelets

(I have observed that I am a sucker for personalized things, kaya siguro ganito nlng ang appeal nito sakin)

On their website http://www.pandora.net, you can design your own bracelet. I started my creation with the charms I have… and worked my way to this!!!

My Pandora Project

Okay, so I don’t know how I will achieve this gold set (ang mahal ng gold nila!!)

GOOD LUCK!!
