Pregnancy Scare After Tubal Ligation

First of all, I know this will sound really really crazy.

I was ligated right after my last caesarean operation last May of 2016 so pretty much I already have a very very slim possibility of getting pregnant again. I am exclusively breastfeeding our youngest since birth so I had my period back when he was around 10 or 11 months old.

Since I had my period back, it never missed, not even a single day (it’s always a 28-day cycle) so when it missed for a whole week, I really started thinking crazy stuff.

First thing I thought of was “If I’m pregnant, I’ll give birth by June.” Not a single feeling excitement, nope.ย  Somehow I just wanted to jump out of the whole nine-month pregnancy journey, which I already cherished with my three children. This time I’m more on mentally preparing for the pains of C-section (if ever I’ll actually give birth again).

Mercury Drug’s Suki Day Book 2018

Most people are already planning what planner to for next year. Some coffee drinkers would be collecting stickers from their beloved coffee shops, some are loyal to their usual brands and some get the cheapest but functional.

I’m not a planner kind of person. I love how fancy those planners are and it looks kikay too but I’m not gonna pay hundreds for it. I made a mistake once on buying this kikay planner with a membership card with it. There’s a long story behind it and it seems like it’s my fault entirely but no, I’m not gonna do it again. I usually buy Papemelroti’s pocket planners (Php 20.00). They are affordable and I love the designs too. It serves as a reminder for me in some way.

Yesterday I dropped by at Mercury Drug to buy stuff for my kids and I noticed this notebook at the cashier. There are three colors available that time; peach, light blue and mint green.

Tagulabay (Hives / Urticaria)

Wednesday night (July 19, 2017), we noticed some small red bumpy patches in my 14-month-old son’s face. At first I thought it’s just some insect bite so I ignored it. The following morning, more red rashes showed up on his back and stomach and before sunset, both his legs and arms are covered with those red rashed too. First thing that came to mind is allergy so I gave him an antihistamine. There are no changes on his rashes and later that night he started having fever. That’s when I started to worry. Combining rashes and fever immediately summons the idea that it could be dengue.

Drafts and Games

p5

As of today, I still have 10 unfinished posts here in my Drafts and… yeah, I got so into MOBA recently (Mobile Legends and Heroes Evolved, anyone?) and Ragnarok PH was relaunched last June 29 ( I even joined the Close Beta Test phase!) that’s why I wasn’t able to finish these.

Is it bad for a mom to get hooked on these games? I finished college without even trying ANY online games. I tried League of Legends almost 4 years ago and I hated it. Seriously hate it (too many buttons!), especially when my team mates would start trash talking. Good thing there are android versions of these games now.

Here are some of my most recent awards/honor.

Anyone playing same game? Comment your IGNs!

It’s a choice, not a chance

I saw this photo in one of my friends’ Facebook profile and I totally agree with what this guy said.

Let me share you guys something.

Our relationship started with a “trial” stage. Both of us just came out of toxic relationships and I said “let’s try to be together for six months and if we’re still together by that time, we’ll decided if we’ll be serious”. We just celebrated our 6th anniversary last April 4. We chose to be together.

When I was pregnant with our first child,

Why is there a sun?

One of the most fascinating experience that I think each parent experienced at one point is having to answer some not-so-easy questions of a toddler. You see, it’s nice to think that from a tiny little baby who’s kicking inside your tummy, your baby’s not so little anymore and she’s starting to wonder more about her surroundings.

As a mom, I already get to answer several questions and most of the time, my answer is “that’s just how it is”, but I’m gonna share something that happened last night.

We’re in bedroom waiting for dinner and we’re watching Fairy Tail (the anime, yes. We’re on Ep130). Erika, our 3-year-old daughter, was hugging Michael that time when she suddenly asked ” Papa, bakit may araw?” (“Papa, why is there a sun?”) Michael looked at me and I just raised my eyebrows.

Masakit Magmahal (Love Hurts)

We’re waiting for our dinner and my son keeps on singing this song and I’m surprised with the conversation we had. I’m not sure if he actually have any idea.

Alexis: *singing “Paano Ba Magmahal” by Sarah G.*

Me: Bakit masakit magmahal Alexis? (Why does love hurts, Alexis?)

Alexis: Eh, ganun talaga yun. Kapag nagmahal ka, masasaktan ka.(That’s how it is. If you love, you get hurt)

Me: Hindi ba pwedeng hindi masaktan? (Is it possible not to get hurt?)

Alexis: Hindi! ‘Pag ‘di ka nasaktan, edi ‘di ka nagmahal nun. *sabay kindat* ( No! If you didn’t get hurt, then you didn’t really love *wink*)

…and that is my 4-year-old son.

It made me think for a sec, his words remindedme of some things that are quite true. Ano’ng alam ng batang ‘to? As if he knows anything, but most probably he’s just playing the words from the lyrics.

Here’s the song btw:

For J and K

Kanina lang kami nagkitakita ulit ni Janelle at Krizza. Nakakatuwang makita at makausap sila ulit, ang sayang maka-catch up sa kanila.

Si Krizza, nagma-masterals na.Kahit tinatawanan ko sya kanina, nakaka-proud kasi talagang ‘diretso’ pa rin yung direksyon ng mga plano nya. That’s what I always admired about her.

Just (Another) Quick One : Hobbies, ย Passion and Being a Mom

I was looking at my Instagram feed when I saw this photo by one of my high school friends. An aspiring photographer who takes above average photos (not that I have high standards) and he, ย just like me, ย loves using nature as his subject.

I went on looking at his photos when I realized that I used to love taking photos and looking at nature photography. ย Now, ย I just love looking at them.

I know most parents experience this at one point especially stay-at-home moms like me. ย That moment when you suddenly just miss doing those things that you’re terribly passionate about, ย like photography for instance. You can feel the passion, ย the excitement and the anticipation thinking when you can do the things you used to do. Somehow imagining what you would do and where you’d go to when you get the chance. For a minute, ย you’re flying there planning with a little too much bit of excitement.
