Preggy diaries; lessons learned.

I am currently 37 weeks with my little munchkin and I am feeling that the big day is just around the corner! Too much feels as all moms say when you have reached this point.

Well for me, I am really EXCITED because finally I am going to see that tiny creature that’s been inside me, moving and kicking and not to mention ALWAYS HUNGRY (mommies out there, you sure know how it feels. haha).Β SCARED of the things that might happen during the delivery, the “beyond-words-can-say-pain” that I might experience, and of course the things unknown yet since I am a first time mom.

Good thing I have a lot of “mommy friends” Β whom I can ask anytime. Upon them knowing that I am going to be a mom soon, they shared a lot of things they have learned with their experiences. Like the do’s and don’t’s when your preggy, even the things you have to buy or the must have’s. Aside from my friends, of course my family is always there. Specially my mom who is very excited (but doesn’t want to be called “lola”)Β by her first granddaughter with me. I think it’s also a good thing that since I am the eldest in our family, I have witnessed before how my mom prepared for her big day with my other siblings. And most of all, I have Yomi with me who is very optimistic and understanding. He never gets tired of hearing all of my endless worries, and even everyday rants. And would always cheer me up and share positive vibes with me. (when you are preggy, you’ll really have crazy hormones)

So for this post, I’d like to share some of the things I personally learned during my journey with our little munchkin.

1. NEVER miss any pre-natal check up with your OB.
I am very much guilty with this. because I have skipped some months of my pre-natal check up with my OB. Good thing my little munchkin is strong and healthy. But as I was nearing my due date, I made it a point to make time for my check up so I will be more than ready and prepared for the big day.

Supposedly, a preggy mom should see her OB every month. So that the mommy and the daddy as well will be able to know everything their baby needs. All the vaccines a mom should have, food that the mommy should eat and what to avoid as well. Also to know if there’s something wrong with the baby, which of course we all don’t want to happen. But don’t worry OB’s are there to help us take care of our baby.

Keyomi!

Maaaring makakita kayo ng pangalan na “Yomibear”, “Yomi” , “Mahal” o “Zaldy” sa mga posts ko kaya ipapakilala ko na siya!

TL (team leader) ko siya nun sa pangalawang company na pinasukan ko. Napakahirap ng account (telco, alam na this!) , yung tipong takot na takot ako sa bawat tawag na matatanggap ko kasi nahihirapan talaga ako masolusyunan problema nila. Sabi ng ibang kilala ko na matagal na doon, napakaswerte ko raw at kay β€œTL Yomi” ako napunta. Isa raw siya sa pinakamababait na supervisor sa account na yun. Sa unang tingin, mukhang isnabero, suplado at walang tiyaga sa mga tao sa paligid niya. Pero nung nakausap ko na siya nag iba naman lahat. Mabait naman pala. Hanggang sa nairaraos ko ang bawat araw kahit hirap na hirap na ako dahil sa tulong niya.

Sabi ko nga nun β€œKung hindi lang siguro siya ang TL ko, baka umalis na ako dito.” Linya ko palagi kapag kinakamusta ako. Hanggang sa tumagal, nakilala ko siya ng husto. Hindi naging maganda ang simula ng lahat sa amin. Malabo talaga pero unti unting naging maayos kasi nagtiwala kami sa isa’t isa. Nagtulungan kami. Araw-araw, gabi-gabi, kain dito, kape doon. Kwento dito, tawa doon. Sobrang saya ng bawat minuto na kasama ko siya. Hanggang sa nagtagal at nakilala ko siya ng lubusan. At ngayon na magkasama na kami sa iisang bahay, lalo ko pa siyang nakikilala at lalo kong minamahal.

Siya kasi yung tipo na kahit ipakita ko yung totoong ako, wala siyang pakialam. Malaki ang agwat ng edad namin pero hindi ko naramdaman yun sa pagsasama namin. Na kahit minsan ang lame ng jokes ko, natatawa pa rin siya. Na kahit minsan, wala ako sa sarili ko o lutang, ayos lang, kaya niya mag-adjust makasabay lang sa akin. Siya pa lang yung natatanging kinakaya lahat ng mood swings ko. At nako naman, napakahaba ng pasensya niya. Minsan kahit anu-ano ng nasasabi ko, tatahimik lang siya, hahayaan akong maglabas ng sama ng loob, at mamaya lang kundi ako yayakapin, may dala ng paborito kong pagkain. Na kahit ano kaya kong sabihin at ikwento sa kanya na walang iniisip na baka i-judge niya ako ng dahil lang doon. Sobrang prinsesa ako sa kanya. Kaya naman din siguro nagustuhan siya ng pamilya ko. Nakikita ko nga minsan ang tatay ko sa kanya. Pareho silang mabait, matiyaga at maintindihin.

Naalala ko minsang nag-away kami ng mama ko, sabi niya sa akin “Sa ugali mong yan, sana makahanap ka ng katulad ng papa mo na napakamaintindihin.”

Ma, nahanap ko na po, dumating na po. Hehe. πŸ™‚
Kaya naman minsan, yung mga simpleng bagay na pwede kong gawin para sa kanya ay ginagawa ko kahit ayoko talaga. Katulad ng pagluluto, gusto ko taga-kain lang ako. Pero pinilit kong matuto para may maihanda ako sa kanya bago man lang siya pumasok. Kahit magkasugat ako kakahiwa, walang problema, mailuto ko lang mga gusto niyang ulam. Kahit ilang beses ako mapaso, walang kaso basta may kanin siya. Ang pagtimpla ng kape sa kanya, kahit ba 3in1 yun, hinalo ko ng may kasamang buong pagmamahal ko yun. Odiba? Ang tupiin ang mga damit niya, salubungin siya sa pinto sa pagdating niya. May yakap agad siya mula sa akin, alam ko kasi na-stress yun sa trabaho. Pero hindi ko na nagagawang salubungin siya sa pagdating niya, anong oras na kasi ako nagigising nitong mga nakaraang araw. Ganunpaman, walang kaso yun. Siya naman nakikita ko pag gising na pag gising ko eh.

Sa wakas may naidagdag na akong magagandamg kwento sa blog na β€˜to.

Isusunod ko na rin mga adventures namin. (Nung nagpunta kaming Baguio)
Ewan ko ba at kung anong swerte o nagawa ko para magkaroon ng blessing na katulad niya. At isa pa darating na yung blessing naman na para sa aming dalawa, si Anastasia. Sigurado akong magiging mabuting daddy siya.

As I start anew…

Hooray! I was able to retrieve my account here on WordPress. A perfect way to begin and finally organize my posts. I used to have an account on Tumblr where I post anything that runs in my head, may it be a happy or sad thought. Right now, I’m thinking of creating a more organized blog and as much as possible would like to share positive vibes. So, it is really a good thing to be back so I can finally start anew.

In this blog, I would like to share all the life lessons I know (most were learned the hard way. haha), positive thoughts, and would like to make this blog my diary as I enter a new chapter in my life (specifically to us women)…

I AM GONNA BE A MOM SOON!

Yehey! I’m actually thinking of creating “mommy diaries”.

Before finally deciding to start blogging again, I was really having second thoughts. As we all know, time is really precious. I’m scared that I may not be able to find time to update my blog every now and then, or be creative enough to catch readers, specially when my little munchkin is already here.

Blogging, for me before was only a way to breathe. But as I get to read different blogs, mostly from friends and celebrites and known writers, I came up to an endeavor to inspire people. It has always been my goal to help others not only by deeds but also by simply listening to them and sharing my thoughts. Modesty aside, you can ask my friends that it’s I, who listen to their endless rants and stories about anything under the sun and they can expect that I am not going to judge them but will simply try to enlighten them and little by little bring out the positivity in them.

So, hopefully I can continue with what I have started.

Let’s help each other! πŸ™‚

P.S.
I will be using either English or Tagalog for my posts.
