Motherhood has taken over my life
Dec 14th, 2012 by niceyfemme

And I love that fact. 🙂

No it hasn’t been a walk in the park, in fact it’s really hard and painful (labor, delivery and breastfeeding) but I haven’t laughed and smiled as much as I do now. All because of my precious baby. My gosh I love her! Sleeplessness is hard I can’t feel my head anymore but just one sweet smile from her and I’m floating in heaven! A much better high than macanudo cigars can give you haha!

I’m so proud of you anak!

My Daughter Joleigh
Oct 17th, 2012 by niceyfemme

World, meet my daughter, Joleigh. I am now a certified mother.

My husband with my daughter a few minutes after birth. 🙂 It was an easy delivery I can say. Well easier than I expected because I expected it to be really painful and a difficult process. It was hard and difficult but not the worst ever.

My life is more complete now. I’m just so happy. I’m still adjusting to life being a mother and yes it can get overwhelming at times but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  Thank you my dear Lord for always making my dreams come true. Every thing in my life is because of You. Thank you.

Oh and it’s a GIRL!
Jul 26th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Yes. The God Almighty has answered so many of my prayers since last year. I prayed for a kind hearted man to marry and I did marry one. I couldn’t be happier with our marriage now. Then I prayed for a baby, any gender will do but I prefer to have a girl first. I have always imagined how I would dress her up and how she’ll look in her papa’s arms. Getting pregnant wasn’t easy for me as I have PCOS so I wasn’t even sure if pregnancy wass even possible. I know it is to some women with PCOS but not to all. So to say that I was happy when I saw those two lines would be an understatement. Then he blessed us with a girl too! Wow.

Let me introduce you guys to my baby girl. This is taken at my ultrasound when I was in my 5th month so she’s definitely bigger now. We’ll be able to meet her in more or less two months. I can’t wait.

Thank you my Lord for the life that I have. I will never get tired of thanking you all my life.

Since you requested for this…
Jul 14th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Then your wish is granted! Well in a few months really but I am already baking my gift in my tummy oven for a few months now…

Remember Daddy you are the one who kept on bugging me since Bee and I got married to when we will give you a grandchild? You really pressured me big time… So the moment I learned that I am indeed pregnant aside from the overwhelming happiness and shock I felt, I felt the best feeling of relief! That finally I’ll be a mama now and you’ll be a grandpa soon… I don’t want my baby to call you grandpa by the way… I want the baby to call you Daddy as well…

I really thought long and hard about what to give the soon to be grandpa gift ideas for your birthday.. Then I realized I already have THE gift. I can’t believe how excited you are about my baby even more excited than I am and Bee and Mommy… That makes you an awesome Daddy to me and the best grandpa to the bun I am still baking… We love you! ♥

Roses Are Sweet
Feb 27th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Ok late post coming right now. By the way I’m so glad that I can blog now as I feel quite alright as I type and I hope this continues to go on oh please!

So yeah, my husband gave me roses again. Not on Valentine’s Day but on our nth monthsary. Haha we are corny like that, we have monthsaries. There is some story behind this roses though. This is a big deal for me. Why? This is only the second time he have gave me flowers as he is not the type who does so, he’s more into feeding me haha. So the first time was on our 1st monthsary, almost 6 years ago, then now. I truly appreciated this, I even read the internet to know how to make the life of these roses last. It’s the thought really. And I was totally caught by surprise.

Awww! I love you baby… But what I appreciate more is the time we spend together laughing and being crazy like kids. The tickling and wrestling like Hitman I truly cherish. The mornings before you have to leave for work so you’d wake me up by kissing me lots on the cheek and hug me like there’s no tomorrow. I truly hope we stay this way until we’re old and gray. If you want to buy gold jewelry for me I’m open to that too haha! No really, I am contented just having you. How blessed am I. 🙂

I Will Be A Mommy!
Feb 18th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I’ve always wanted to become pregnant and be a mommy. Since I know that I need to do these kinds of things in the perfect time and with the right person, I put a full stop on this dream for years. Fortunately, I reached a point in my life where I am in that place and everything is right for that dream to happen already. I am now married to a wonderful and funny man, and I felt ready for motherhood since last year even before we got married. I am one who do things when it feels right. He asked me to marry him year 2008 but I did not feel like I am ready for marriage then more so having a baby.

After getting married baby is next on our plan but it seemed to be more difficult challenging for me, that’s what my Reproductive Endocrinologist told me. Still it is possible, we just need some help. So I took medications for a year. Wow, it was not easy on me. Those medications made me feel down and low and even caused me to gain a lot of weight. There are times when I was so down I always cried. It was so stressful and the fear of  not knowing if it will ever happen or if it is even possible was just haunting me. Add to that other different stresses life brings and I was a mess on the inside. I was always mad at the smallest things. Thank God I have my family who understands.

Then by December of last year, a really big stress in my life is finally gone. I guess I was stress free that month and happy. I also reached that point when I just prayed to Him leaving everything up to Him since having a baby is beyond my control. I said to my husband, we will do our part then just pray. If it happens then great I’ll be very happy if not then we just have to try again. Trying again is much trickier since distance is going to be a challenge. But I have my faith. Knowing the odds, I didn’t keep my hopes too high.

Then I got the biggest surprise of my life. It was positive! That was after feeling sick and feverish for about a week .I was actually really scared to test because seeing that single line really broke my heart many times before. I really waited for cycle day 35 before I used a home pregnancy kit. I really couldn’t believe my eyes. TWO LINES!!!! I immediately went to Asian Hospital for the first pre-natal check up. Talking about being excited. I was only 4 weeks and 4 days along then.

Still can’t believe I am now pregnant. My husband is happy same with my Mommy and my Dad is so cute and being extra caring with me. Haha he is really excited which is something I somehow knew would happen. Why? He is the one who keeps on asking me when I’ll give him a grandchild. Haha I told him, “Daddy, you know it’s not easy! It’s not like I could just go to the mall and pick the one with the most dots!”

Now I am at 8 weeks and boy it’s not been a walk in the park! I have trouble eating as it makes me feel like vomiting so I can’t eat much but also, I am always hungry! I’ve never felt this hungry before! This kind is different, the type that worries me. The first week I lost 2 lbs now I guess I lost even more. I really lost a lot of weight. I even wake up in the middle of the night because of severe hunger.

I stopped using lotions. I am extra careful now. I want to use comodynes but I guess that will have to wait until after this whole pregnancy.

All of these inconveniences are worth it because after a few months I will have a baby! I so wanted to have a baby that I tried to adopt many times before and even went to an orphanage just to cuddle a baby. Now I will have my own. Thank You Lord. I am so happy.

 

‎5 Deadly Terms of Women
Aug 7th, 2011 by niceyfemme

1. FINE: This is the word women use to end an argument when she knows she is right and you need to shut-up.

2. NOTHING: Means something & you need to be worried.

3. GO AHEAD: This is a dare, not permission , do not do it.

4. WHATEVER: A woman’s way of saying screw you.

5. THAT’S OK: She is thinking long & hard on how and when you will pay for your mistake.

Sooo true. Guys take note. This will make your lives easier if you completely understand all this. Bee, better understand what these words mean when I used them to you. 🙂

A Story of Appreciation
Jan 31st, 2011 by niceyfemme

I thought this is something worth sharing to everyone.

And I love you Mommy and Daddy with all my heart. ♥♥♥ Thank you, and I can’t thank you both enough. I hope you know how much I appreciate you and the things you do for me. Please know that everyday when I say I love you, I speak from my heart and I truly mean it every time.

One young academically excellent person went to apply for a managerial position in a big company.

He passed the first interview, the director did the last interview, made the last decision.

The director discovered from the CV that the youth’s academic achievements were excellent all the way, from the secondary school until the postgraduate research, never had a year when he did not score.

The director asked, “Did you obtain any scholarships in school?” the youth answered “none”.

The director asked, ” Was it your father who paid for your school fees?” The youth answered, “My father passed away when I was one year old, it was my mother who paid for my school fees.

The director asked, ” Where did your mother work?” The youth answered, “My mother worked as clothes cleaner. The director requested the youth to show his hands. The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect.

The director asked, ” Have you ever helped your mother wash the clothes before?”

The youth answered, “Never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more books. Furthermore, my mother can wash clothes faster than me.

The director said, “I have a request. When you go back today, go and clean your mother’s hands, and then see me tomorrow morning.*

The youth felt that his chance of landing the job was high. When he went back, he happily requested his mother to let him clean her hands. His mother felt strange, happy but with mixed feelings, she showed her hands to the kid.

The youth cleaned his mother’s hands slowly. His tear fell as he did that. It was the first time he noticed that his mother’s hands were so wrinkled, and there were so many bruises in her hands. Some bruises were so painful that his mother shivered when they were cleaned with water.

This was the first time the youth realized that it was this pair of hands that washed the clothes everyday to enable him to pay the school fee. The bruises in the mother’s hands were the price that the mother had to pay for his graduation, academic excellence and his future.

After finishing the cleaning of his mother hands, the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes for his mother.

That night, mother and son talked for a very long time.

Next morning, the youth went to the director’s office.

The Director noticed the tears in the youth’s eyes, asked: ” Can you tell me what have you done and learned yesterday in your house?”

The youth answered, ” I cleaned my mother’s hand, and also finished cleaning all the remaining clothes’

The Director asked, ” please tell me your feelings.”

The youth said,

Number 1, I know now what is appreciation. Without my mother, there would not be a successful me today.

Number 2, by working together and helping my mother, only I now realize how difficult and tough it is to get something done.

Number 3, I have come to appreciate the importance and value of family relationship.

The director said, ” This is what I am looking for to be my manager.

I want to recruit a person who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the sufferings of others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in life. You are hired.

Later on, this young person worked very hard, and received the respect of his subordinates. Every employee worked diligently and as a team. The company’s performance improved tremendously.

………….

A child, who has been protected and habitually given whatever he wanted, would develop “entitlement mentality” and would always put himself first. He would be ignorant of his parent’s efforts. When he starts work, he assumes that every person must listen to him, and when he becomes a manager, he would never know the sufferings of his employees and would always blame others. For this kind of people, who may be good academically, may be successful for a while, but eventually would not feel sense of achievement. He will grumble and be full of hatred and fight for more. If we are this kind of protective parents, are we really showing love or are we destroying the kid instead?*

You can let your kid live in a big house, eat a good meal, learn piano, watch a big screen TV. But when you are cutting grass, please let them experience it. After a meal, let them wash their plates and bowls together with their brothers and sisters. It is not because you do not have money to hire a maid, but it is because you want to love them in a right way. You want them to understand, no matter how rich their parents are, one day their hair will grow gray, same as the mother of that young person. The most important thing is your kid learns how to appreciate the effort and experience the difficulty and learns the ability to work with others to get things done.

This may change somebody’s fate…
