Happy Holidays

It was not a very happy Christmas for us because of the problem we are facing with regards to papa’ health. It is not easy to accept things that you really don’t expect. However, this is not an excuse that we cannot thank God for all the things He has done. For we all know that everything happens for a reason. He indeed the reason for the season. New year is only 1 day to go. I thank the Lord for the year 2017 for all the things happened to us God is always there to help us in all our endeavors. My wish for now is for my dad’s complete recovery and restore his health to the fullest. Happy new year everyone!

My Journey to Ailee’s Birth

I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work in a hospital where I can avail health benefits as well as my dependents and my parents, without paying a single peso in the bill when discharge. It includes giving birth in the hospital, but I decided to have a home birth instead. Some people were asking/questioning me why I decided to do so knowing that I already knew the risks. The following are my reasons;

First, I am confident enough that my sister who is a licensed nurse midwife will be the one to assist me in my delivery. A dream come true. She had been assisting thousands of pregnant mothers already here in the Philippines, India, Saudi Arabia, Libya, and Africa. She was dealing with many difficult and high-risk patients so I guess handling me is just easy for her.

Second, We have also midwife friends who will be assisting too, and that gave us more confidence.

Third, I have a complete paraphernalia/things needed for my delivery that includes the newborn care, immunizations and even ambu bag for resuscitation in case of medical emergency. Ambulance vehicle will be on standby in case of emergency.

Forth, I had a complete prenatal checkup with an OB consultant and in the maternity clinic. I made sure that I have normal results in all my labs and ultrasound.  Everything was normal except for my UTI that it took a while to treat.

Lastly, The comfort of giving birth at home is amazing There are no restrictions on how family members or friends that can be present. You can eat or drink as you wish before delivery. You can walk around freely. You can choose the delivery position that's right for you.

Let me share with you my second home-birth experience. I am not encouraging pregnant to do the same. Hospital delivery is advisable. I will give you a glimpse of my successful home delivery.


I am on my 38th and two days, and at around three o’clocks in the afternoon I noticed a small bloody show in my undies I immediately told my sister because it signifies that I am in an early stage of labor. To make sure that everything is normal, I went to an Ob-Gyn doctor with my other sister for evaluation and last ultrasound. I was 3-4cm then, and everything was normal only my water started to get low and that I should give birth as soon as possible. I started to feel pain but still very tolerable. My sister already prepared everything and the setting where I will give birth a week before my big day.
A pose with my sister. Thank you, sis, for the love and care! 'peace' even though I’m in pain.
I was 4-5cm this time


Such a sweet little Ate, she always hugs and kisses my tummy whenever she has a chance.
My sister, my nurse/midwife is always by my side throughout my labor to monitor me and my baby. 


I did squatting exercises in our terrace! my kiddos were there for me throughout my labor and delivery. 


I do squatting and other exercises on our terrace to help my labor progress faster. 



That moment na you're about to give up and become hopeless because of the pain? Pero life must go on! kaya natin to anak! This photo was taken around 11pm and I was 7-8cm. Pain escalated already my scale was 8 from 1-10.



Hallelujah! @ 1:19am October 10, 2017, I gave birth to my third child Ailee Gynelle. The pain during the transition was intolerable and unbearable. Thank God I made it. I only gave my one very strong push and Ailee came out. Just never mind my shout! 'Mura juwg baka! haha


After I got stable, It's time for newborn care and newborn exam. While I was having my rest, Ate did the exam and sole tracing. 
 
Oh, she got that one seat apart digits from me! haha

That small wheel completes her BCG immunization. 

Ailee's first bath! with the super Ate Gyndy who can't wait to carry her small little sister.

First of all, I thank the Lord Almighty for making this birth a successful one. I cannot make it without Him giving me strength and endurance. To my sister, my hero for giving her 100% energy, her tender love, and care, her touch soothes the pain and for assuring that everything will be okay. Salamat kaayo te sa memorable experience with you as my nurse midwife and I am the spoiled patient. Thank you also Ate Susan, Ate Elsa, and Ate Ermie and Aya for your all-out support throughout my pregnancy, labor, and delivery.



"There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven-- A time to give birth and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.…"
 Ecclesiastes 3:1

Pregnancy unusual pain

I am so near to my due date! I am on my 30th weeks of pregnancy. I can feel all the pressure now brought by heavy weight descending baby who is about to come out in 2 months time. I know discomforts that I feel right now is part of pregnancy sacrifices. I just wondered why I feel so much pain on my lower abdomen that runs already on my legs. I can hardly stand up from bed because of the pain sometimes its hard to walk too. Thanks to God that the pain is tolerable though it brought so much disturbance to my daily routine. The pain will escalate if I have a full bladder that is why I pee every time even I don't have the urge to. God please keep me strong for my little one. I know I can make it until the day of my delivery.

Finally decided to buy a car

Sponsored post
Last year when we got a motorcycle accident, that's the time we decided to get a 4wheels vehicles for personal and business use. Thankful to God nothing serious happened to us, only minor bruises and wounds. I feel safe with 4wheels than a motorcycle which it can get crush easily. Before we got an accident we already planned to buy one but remained plan until such happened! At first we really had a hard time deciding what type of car to buy. Hubby suggested a car that we can use everyday and the same time it can be used for business. After a thorough canvass and discussions we end up with a baby truck multi-cab type. It was our first time to have a car! At first we enjoyed riding it but when I got pregnant with the second and now pregnant with our third baby, I got a hard time positioning myself in the front seat with baby and with 6years old eldest when the seat is good only for 2 people. I am not comfortable sitting at the back either. That is why we decided now to have an air conditioned car for our growing family! Though I considered hubby to be good and have broad knowledge about cars and accessories because he started driving at the age of 16 that is why! :) I also do research and ask my friends about their cars for added knowledge and reference. I am glad to have landed at Cars.com for additional and wise tips in buying a car. It is very important to do research and read reviews from other car owner to have a more idea what to do and check before buying. It is also important that the driver also must at least have basic knowledge like how to change a tire, check the machine and other small and basic mechanic. Before this year ends hopefully to have a brand new air conditioned car that we and our kids are praying and wishing for. God willing!

Thank you Lord!

I thanked the Lord always for all the blessings He gave me that includes expected and unexpected blessings! One of the unexpected blessings that I just enjoyed was the check I received from the company I am working! I tried to apply for vacation leave monitization and luckily I was granted with it! I have saved my vacation leave that I have not used so I decided to have it monetized! I am so happy! Now, I won't make many leaves anymore if it is really not necessary knowing that It can be monitized in time. Hopefully nextyear I will apply again if I can have enough vacation leave that left unused! Hubby asked for addition funds for his small business and 3/4 of the total amount will be given to him. I just wish that he will use the money wisely. It is not easy to get it, I work for it, I sacrificed some of my time for it just to supply food on our table and pay our monthly bills. I hope he can give me some returns in the right time.  Being a working mom is not easy especially that I am expecting 6months pregnant with our third baby. I don't have a rights to surrender or give up because I love my family and I will do anything for them. I know It needs for a husband and wife to work together for the family and I appreciate also his effort to help me in our needs. He is a very hardworking dad but he never noticed it that he sometimes forgot to attend his family espcially our kids that need his attention because he is so busy with his small business. I just wish that he could balance everything for us to have a harmonious family relationship. I also prayed that God would help me to be a good mother and wife to him. I accept I also have many lapses but I am trying to give my best for them. I just feel hard now that I am pregnant, I feel so much pain in my lower abdomen but I am used to it. Maybe this is part of my pregnancy but it seems no one understand the pain that I am experiencing. All of them saying its normal but for me I can say it's not. Only God knows!

Healthy Advice

Increasing evidence supports the notion that what we eat affects how we feel and even whether we live a long, healthy life. More often debated are the roles played by specific foods. Instead of trying to keep track of all the claims and counterclaims, remember two words: variety and moderation. Eating a variety of foods and choosing specific foods in moderated amounts are daily goals no matter what your age.​

Who gets hooked on horoscope?

Sure we may all get a kick out of reading that we're due for a windfall, but some people can't take the stars too seriously. Who is apt to get addicted to looking at horoscopes? People who fear the unknown and feel better believing their destiny is controlled by external forces. They look to the stars in hopes of finding security about future and their decisions but end up with false comfort and an illusion of control. When you find yourself consulting the stars on important family or financial decisions, it's time for a reality check. Ask yourself, "Would I make the same decision if I hadn't read this?" But don't feel you have to banish astrology entirely. Reading horoscopes can be healthy if you if you use them as motivation or to affirm a decision you've already made on your own.​

Lets lose weight

One of the most important ways to preserve good health is to control your weight. By losing pounds, overweight people can reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and coronary heart disease (CHD) which are all traitor diseases. Losing weight may lower levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, which is often referred to as "bad" cholesterol. Losing weight can also lower levels of triglycerides and even increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, referred to as "good" cholesterol. In addition, weight loss can help reduce the risk of gallbladder disease and reduces stress on the back, hips, and knees, thus not aggravate arthritis. On the other side, it also boosts ones confidence by having a good and healthy shape. In theory, weight control is a simple matter of balancing energy intake (the calories supplied by food) with energy output (the calories expended by physical activity and metabolism). To lose weight, you need to expend more energy than you take in, more exercises and workouts. In practice, however, the task is clearly not that simple. While the basic principle of energy balance remains true, several mechanisms--genetic, metabolic, and environmental--control how much you eat and how your body uses and stores energy.

Benifits of Nutri10 supplement

I got a lot of advices and suggestion about what is the best vitamins supplement for my eldest daughhter who will be turning 7 this coming August. But it seems nothing changes about her super thin body figure! She dont have an appetite to eat. She only select what she eats and that gives me a heavy heart. Even how I tried in my own way, sometimes I prepare a guava stem or a belt beside me when its eating time. But I am tired doing this I want a vitamins that would boast her appetite. I know I have lapses in this area of discipline but what can I do? My goal for now is for her to gain weight that's all! 

I was very happy to know that I was one of the lucky mommies whose given a chance to try and review about certain vitamins for my baby from Wert Philippines. That is Nutri10 supplement. I will try if this will work for my not so baby Ate. She is taking it for 2 week now. She likes the taste of a ponkan flavor. I am already excited when the result will effect already in increasing her appetite for food. I want this supplement because of its content. What vitamins and minerals can be found in Nutri10 supplement?

CGF or Chlorella growth factor- is the ability of chlorella to reproduce its DNA several times a day and stimulate the growth of its own cells. Para tangkad's agad c baby. We, parents want that our kids maximize their full potential. My hubby is not that tall compare to me that is why I want my eldest to get my gene.hehe! CGF can do a lot for my baby I know.

ZINC-  is a nutrient that people need to stay healthy. Zinc is found in cells throughout the body. It helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses. The body also needs zinc to make proteins and DNA, the genetic material in all cells. Para protektado c baby sa anumang mga sakit. Viral infection is common nowadays because of our environment that is why kids needs protection to fight different kind of viruses that may harm our little ones.

Sweet relief

Sugar reduces the body's level of stress hormones known as glucocorticoids. So when under stress, eating sweets may help to relief distress. But I’m not saying that we should eat lots of junk food. Eating fruit rather than candy might produce this effect as well, and even emulates it, for it is naturally healthy.

Able to stand again

After the incidence, God replaced what have been lost. Now we were able to buy new church instruments with the help of generous members of the church, we were able to stand again. I don't know why the thieves decided to go inside the church but its their accountability to answer and pay the consiquences of what they were doing in God's teritory. Well, we dont think of the incidence anymore, we have moved on and recovered. Thanks to guitar instruments at guitarcenter.com for the good idea what to buy and clue about the prices of each. May God uses some of his children to expand and share the good news to the lost.

Speed healing of surgery patients

We are not sure who is all natural or has undergone surgeries to change their bodies. For those attempting to go under the scalpel, here is one tip for faster healing. A worldwide review by the Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation of the folk remedy bromelain, a compound of enzymes found in pineapples, considered by FDA as a safe food additive, will speed healing of many surgery patients, the supplements taken after surgery can reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain somewhat, as well as increase the effectiveness of antibiotics. But if combined with aspirin (or the many medications that contain it), it could increase the existing risk of postsurgical bleeding, and at high doses cause gastrointestinal problems, rashes, headaches, asthma, and allergic reactions.

Enhancing the beauty in you

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

I've been working in a government for 4years now and in my four years of service as a frontliner in receiving patient's requirements for health insurance I have witnessed, listened and felt every patient's and family's emotion during hospitalization and the diseases they are suffering. Even though there were times when I feel insulted, shouted by them but I always tried to understand them and not reacting the same feeling in return. It is still not easy to be in a hospital for treatment and other medical interventions. Some of my client are cancer patients and we all know that cancer meds can make or sometimes make patient's hair fall and this will make patient's confidence low. But now I finally found the site that would help my patients problem with hair loss even though it is only temporary while they are on medication, the Divatress site that offers thousands of wig and other beauty care products.
I find it very helpful in deciding what wig, color and design that would perfectly fit for them to be looking good despites of the discomforts they are experiencing. Our hair can really affects how we look and they said it's a crowing glory for each individuals. Problem with split, damaged and dry curly hair is not a problem anymore! Just a wear of a wig and your will be looking good depending to what type of hair you are using.

International Classification of Diseases (ICD)Training for Coders!

I am loving and enjoying my work now, but I do not limit to that point only. I always love to grab any opportunity that would enhance professional growth. I decided to go on training! Though the training fee is high I never mind it as long I will know about that particular training. At my own expense, I pursue my desire to be one of the International Classification of the Disease (ICD-10) coding Training for clinical coders. The training sounds very interesting to me though I have a little background about it, I want to know deeper. Despite the feelings that I have been experiencing these days brought by my early pregnancy like being nauseous, hyperacidity, dizziness, lack of sleep or inability to sleep my normal sleep pattern, I survived the 5days hard but full of learning experiences. As what I have been expecting that this is not just simple training, but one needs to take it very seriously because to be a good coder you need to be very careful, keen observer and has a background about anatomy and physiology of human body. It helps a lot. I think that is my edge to my other co-trainees though half of the group is in the medical field already.

We just had our Graduation ceremony and giving of certificates. To my surprise, I am the top achiever of the group. I can't believe it, for me, this is already an achievement! To be Included in the top 10 among 39 aspiring clinical coders. Hooray! I think I deserved it! I studied a lot and aiming to get the bacon home..haha! I am also sad at the same time because there were trainees that never went through or in other words, failed the training! I know how they feel being the one sent by their employers for free but expecting a lot from them in return. Some said that they signed a contract that if they failed they will pay half of the training fee. Huhu!


To sum up my experiences during the training was very fulfilling and had fun at the same time. Gain new friends and create good teamwork. Congratulations to all of Feb 27- Mar 3, 2017 batch trainees of ICD tenth edition training for coders.

Triple blessing:)

Honestly, I dont know how to react when I knew I am pregnant again for the third time knowing that my baby is just 9months old, God can't believed she's an ate (big sister) already! But I must think that  this is a blessing,though it was not planned but not unwanted one! Yes, there are a lot of couple who prayed, wished to have a baby but never been granted so I think I am just so lucky enough for the chance of bearing a child, in the fact that I have a thyroid problem. My Ob-gyn doctor once told me that having heperthyroid is very hard to get pregnant and she said I am So blessed to get pregnant this easy! I am so thankful enough to the author and creator of this developing embryo inside me! This is a living proof that God is indeed very powerful and I cannot fattom! I hope it's a boy this time! I have 2 beautiful girls already!

Shopping pa more!

I admit, I became addicted to online shopping! Its very convenient for me and hassle free! I am very busy with my work and I prefer to shop online because it saves my time! I always love to avail promos and wwbw coupon code including shipping free fee too if the order meets the minimum amount. I see a lot of discounts compare to the mall especially for baby's stuffs like dipaers and the like. It is always nice to shop online but I should take into consideration about the budget. I should know how to prioritize my family's needs. For the meantime, I should take it slowly.
