Maternity Clothes

Last week I went to the mall to get myself some maternity clothes. None of the dressy kind yet, though. I just got a pair of maternity slacks and some large tops. Next time I’ll get new undergarments because the ones I’m wearing these days are already tight to me.

I’m just happy there’s this mall (a.k.a. SM Manila) near our place that’s so convenient to visit. It has all the things I could ever want. Even the outdoor ceiling fan that I want for our Bacoor home it has in different styles and colors. Speaking of home improvement, our back kitchen will be finished this week. I’m so excited to see the improvements done so far tonight. Finally.

No Cramming for Me Now

Now that I’m pregnant, I make an effort to reduce my stress levels. Stress comes from a lot of things, and you can never say your human if you don’t feel its presence in your life. While I have high tolerance to stress, I feel it’s very important that I don’t stress myself too much now that there’s a life developing inside my womb.

I rarely get stressed at home. I’m lucky to have a very kindhearted, patient and loving husband who, now that I’m having his baby, has multiplied the level of kindness, patience and love he’s showing me. I mean, what more could I possibly ask for? I must be a really lucky preggy wife!

Pregnancy and Baby Studies

Just like other expectant moms, I have started reading on pregnancy and baby development after finding out that I was pregnant. Aside from the usual pregnancy threads/forums, I regularly check out Baby Center Philippines. It’s a great resource center for moms-to-be like me. I learn a thing or two in every visit.

And then there are also the Baby Center US and UK versions which I also read up on. They’re basically similar with Baby Center PH except that there, you could learn not just from Pinay moms but American and British moms as well. It’s all about physical knowledge, experts’ advice and personal experiences from real moms, so I guess it’s all good.

Gift from God

Married couples have different priorities. While some wish to have babies right after the wedding, others plan their lives based on other important factors like career, emotional preparedness and financial independence, etc. As with the hubby and I, we want to have a baby this year or the next. For us, it’s the right timing before we could start planning on realizing our other joint goals in life.

For us, babies are a gift from God. It’s not some gift or prize that you receive when you’ve done something good. It’s more of a gift from the one above that is given to those who seek, for them to cherish forever. I don’t know with you but I always get thrilled by the thought of having our baby someday.

Babies are a Blessing

My mommy friends are growing. Just the other week, my friend and co-worker at the restaurant gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. She named him Matt Michael and she can’t wait to take care of him. She delivered by caesarian section. The expenses keep piling up according to her, but it’s so worth it.

I can feel her happiness. Despite all the hardships from pregnancy up to the delivery itself, she said that her baby is a blessing from God. He is now her source of strength, love and devotion. And she wouldn’t have it any other way. I admire her for that. I also can’t wait to see her baby. I remember when she was still preggy, I’d regularly check her FB account for new photos of her with a bloated tummy inside her maternity clothes. That’s why I’m bugging her to upload photos of her baby in her FB account as soon as possible.
