Pregnant at 45!

Yes!!

 And we are currently at 26 weeks now. Me and the baby are both doing good. Praise God!

I never thought that I will someday write about my pregnancy here in this blog, well, after praying and waiting for 12 years, who would have thought it could still be possible right?

Photo not mine

But our God is God of impossible. Nothing is too hard for HIM! Because you read it right my dearest friends. I am pregnant for the very first time at 45 years old, conceived naturally.

We did not know we were pregnant, I never had morning sickness, nor any signs except for missed period which is a regular occurrence for me since I was diagnosed with PCOS.

How did I figure it out?

Well, last September (first week) I had frequent heartburn to the point that I couldn’t sleep properly at night. Research I made (a.k.a  googling)  said it could also be signs of pregnancy. After knowing that, I was already restless, it’s as if somebody is whispering to me to go buy a pregnancy test.

The night of September 13, I bought two pregnancy test, that night on my first try, it gave me 2 pink lines! I can’t believe it. I almost did not sleep but I kept it to myself. The morning after,  I tried again and there it was! My 2 pink lines.  I woke up my still sleeping husband (whose birthday is on that day!) and showed him the two pregnancy tests. His first reaction was “is that yours?”  we then both laugh!

We decided to go to OB/sonologist for an ultrasound early that morning.  There inside that tiny room, we both cried when they confirmed to us that we are pregnant and that we are already 21 weeks and 1 day!!! Imagine that! I whispered a prayer and thanked our GOD for keeping us safe despite of not having prenatal check up for the first 20 weeks.

God is amazing! And He does amazing things to His children. I know it is not a reward because who are we to be given that reward? It was not because we are faithful or good but it is solely because GOD is FAITHFUL and HE is so GOOD!

After the very huge storm in our married life last year, He has given us this special gift. Our heart is full and we are forever grateful.

To GOD be the GLORY!

I lost weight finally!

I started changing my way of eating February of this month, because I was tried of being so heavy and wearing plus size clothes. I wanted to look and feel good. I wanted to be able to buy clothes without even worrying if there is a size that will fit me.

So here am I now, 30 pounds lighter after 6 months :)


Picture at the left was march 2017, I think it was one of my biggest state :) maybe more than 188 lbs. I only weighed my self last February and my initial weight was 188.84. Picture at right was taken last Saturday, July 21, 2018- current weight is 154 lbs. So happy! I need to lose more because of my recent medical findings when we had the Annual Physical Examination (APE) at the office. It is still a long way to go but I celebrating my moving from OBESITY to overweight! Yey!

Campfire Burgers and more

Address : 23, Scout Limbaga Ext, Quezon City, Metro Manila

We chance upon this cute burger house one Saturday last December when I attended a business workshop near that area. The look is inviting so we tried :) 



 our burgers!


This is for the husband, he ordered "double decker". You can refer to the menu below for what's in there :)

And that burger with fries is mine :0 This is their "double decker". I enjoyed my burger, hubs said he still prefers our favorite "Blazing burger" which is a stone throw away from our house.

Here is a copy of their magnificent 7 menu. 


if you are near the area, go on and try this place, it won't probably hurt your budget and besides the ambiance is nice! I wish to go back also and try their other burgers :)

happy weekend everyone!

One word for 2018

Last year, my one word was SURRENDER and indeed God made sure I will surrender everything to HIM. Total surrender.

Let's see this year, but yes, I will move more-physically and spiritually.

Happy new year everyone!!

Rainbow

There is indeed a rainbow after the storm. As always, grateful that we are able to pass through, it was rough, tough and we were wounded and the scar will always be there but it's ok, that scar is so beautiful! It reminds me of God's faithfulness and grace.

Praying 2018 will be way better than 2017. All the good and beautiful things will come, more happy memories and abundance of love and blessings. Wishing it for all of you too!!

T-shirt printing

We are back with our small home base business, silkscreen printing, we have new designs. I love them all! Also, I am venturing into canvas bags, with silk screen print also. All of our shirts are printed with inspiring statements such as "Life is beautiful" Relax, God is in Charge" and of course some of our favorite bible verses.

If you are located anywhere in the Philippines, we can ship it to you. I wish there is also a cheaper courier/way to ship it to other countries but nah...shipping fee will be much higher than the cost of our shirts so scratch that :(








 here is the canvas bag!



Order na!

Mother's 78th Birthday :)

Hi everyone! I just thought of updating my blog today and what a better way to update than to post these beautiful photos of our family taken last October 8, 2017.

My Nanay was tearfully happy :) I hope that even if her mind/logic is not properly functioning anymore (due to that very tragic accident) she still feels the same love or even more from us, her children.

It was a simple celebration in a not so fancy eat all you can restaurant but the memories we made are priceless!



the three daughters :)


we look so happy right? because we are indeed happy. Recovering well :)

Healing

3 months

And I am completely different now, the way I see life, the way I view things, the way I perceive marriage.

That 3 months made a major impact in our married life.

And  here we are now, on our way to complete recovery only because we have GOD who loves us even when we are unlovable, HIS GRACE is always SUFFICIENT.

And I will be forever grateful to HIM -the author of our marriage and to family & friends who fought with us in prayers.





with our cute niece :)


 we've been eating!!
