I just want to be happy

These past few weeks I can’t find happiness in my work at the office. It seems dull and empty. I no longer enjoy my work especially with the issues surrounding us. Plus the fact that there are lots of paper works to be done yet I don’t know how am I going to do it alone. I want it done in a span of 1 month before I file a maternity leave. I am really praying that things will be okay within the remaining 2 months of my stay there. Somehow, I have been enlightened of this quotes. So I guess I have to change the way I think.

No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change.
– Barbara de Angelis

How to be Consistent

I must admit that I lack consistency in what I mostly do. I’m good at starting something but have problem finishing it without getting bored or tired doing it everyday. This attitude is not helping me achieve my goals. So I want to do something to change it. Thus, I have searched an article on how to be consistent. I’m glad to found one that inspires me and so I am challenging myself to be consistent.

First Father’s Day Celebration

My husband’s first Father’s day celebration because he is a first time daddy. We woke up early and washed our piles of laundry. We weren’t able to do it the other day because we attended my office mate wedding. After the laundry thing we went to the mall early to attend the Sunday mass as well as to deposit at BDO. Then head over to Festival Mall in Alabang, Muntinlupa to celebrate Father’s day. First stop is at Tom’s World wherein we did not win our target stuff toys. Maybe it is not yet our lucky day. There’s no more tokens left so we decided to eat lunch at Racks. Indeed a luscious lunch with the first time daddy.

We stroll, canvass for the next thing to have and look for slippers to buy. Then we bought snacks for mommy at Wendy’s and also got frosty for ourselves. We drove back home and drop by at Puregold to buy my milk, flowers for daddy, and some household needs.

There is an amusement area and he was enticed to buy tokens. We bought 4 tokens. Again we tried our luck to get some stuff toys. Luckily honey won and I did not get anything. Too bad! By the way, he got a cute sponge bob. Indeed his lucky day.

After that we visited the tomb of my father-in-law to greet him a Happy Father’s Day. We didn’t fail to visit his grave especially during special occasions. He will always be remembered. I can say that he has been a great father. Anyway, Happy Father’s day also to my father. I just sent him a message since he is miles away from me.

My Baby Boy

I decided to have an ultrasound yesterday to know the gender of my baby. I already have this hint that I am carrying a baby boy though my appearance didn’t change at all. This is because lots of them are telling me that it is indeed a baby boy because of the shape of my tummy. You know they say that when a pregnant woman is glowing she is carrying a baby girl and the opposite is baby boy. So at first we thought I am having a baby girl but as days goes by most of them are telling me it is a baby boy. Yesterday is the end of guessing time. We are having a baby boy. The ob told me that he is okay. He got a pointed nose. Yehey! He got it my his daddy. I am still praying for his good health inside me. I am very much excited to him. Few more months to go and we will be welcoming baby Hachiko. My husband loves that name.

Juday Gives Birth

I saw it on the news last October 7, 2010 that Judy Ann Santos already gives birth via normal spontaneous delivery at Asian Hospital and Medical Center to a bouncing baby boy around 7:30 pm. We weren’t talking about it at the office. Then yesterday it just come out in my mouth that Juday already gave birth. My officemate was aghast. She’s an avid fan of Juday. She did not know that she already gave birth. I told her because these past few days you were so occupied with paper works even at home. And that she were not updated with the latest celebrity news especially with Juday’s delivery. lol! By the way it surprises us yesterday upon knowing that one of our pediatric doctor was the one who catch Juday’s baby. That time she was the pedia on deck. Anyway, congratulation to Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo.

Busy Bee

What’s keeping me occupied these days that I am not working is taking care of my new born baby. I’m a hands-on mom since we don’t have yet a helper. It’s hard nowadays to find a helper whom you can trust. I hope before I resume working we can find one. Anyway, this Sunday he will turn one month old. It’s pretty quick. How time really flies fast and before we know it he’s a big boy already. I can say that being a mother is hard yet rewarding especially when I see him smile with his cute two little dimple. I am just praying that he will grow healthy.

I miss my blog site

It’s months since the last time I posted here. I have been busy with my work as well as taking care of my little boy. As much as I wanted to write here time doesn’t just permit me to. I hope soon I’ll be able to do so.

Gave Birth to a Healthy Baby Boy

I’m back from blogging after a week. Well, the reason is that I gave birth to a healthy baby boy last September 9, 2011 via normal spontaneous delivery. I’m still recovering and gaining strength. I’m hoping to be really well in the next 2 weeks. I can say that giving birth is really hard. I now understand the feeling of all mothers with regard to giving birth because I have experienced it and gone through the pain. But everything is worthy upon seeing our baby.

Anyway, I really thank God that I’m safe and he is healthy. I thank him that my baby is okay after ingesting a small amount of his meconium. He also experienced transient tachypnea after birth. Laboratory tests and x-ray was done few hours after birth. We are glad that results were normal and he was then roomed in the next day. We stayed at the hospital for 2 days.

I would like to say thank you to my ob, anesthesiologist and to all the nurses from different department. Though I know they would not be able to read this. My doctors did not charge me professional fee since I am an employee there and so we just gave them something to remember. My husband is the one who chose the token and paid it as well. Lol!

Quotes about Life

“Life is action and passion; therefore, it is required of a man that he should share the passion and action of the time, at peril of being judged not to have lived.”

– Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

I just want to share the quote I found about life. I hope you like it and gained something from it. Have a good evening!

I’m hoping this is the day

My next check up is on Thursday, September 8, 2011. My last appointment says that I’m 3cm dilated, my cervix is already ripe and my baby’s head is already engaged. My husband accompanied me last Saturday since it is his rest day. I was happy that for the second time he’s with me during my check up. Anyway, I hope few days from now active labor would start. I can’t wait to see our baby. I’m really looking forward that he will come out this Thursday, September 8, 2011. This is my expected date of confinement base on my LMP (first day of last menstrual period). I know everyone of you is aware that this is also the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
