@imeego - totoo yan, napaka-bigat ng feeling mag-decide. actually ilang months na ako nag procrastinate pero may magandang opportunity na dumating (dati kong officemate ang magiging boss ko, then super family-friendly yung company). and now that i'm about to start working again nakaka-praning talaga kasi you had your system sa house dati e, magbabago yon. i don't know how my kids will adjust but i hope we'll all manage to get through this adjustment. and yung BREASTFEEDING, korek ka jan, sobrang nakaka-attach talaga and i feel sad na hindi na kasi magkadikit ng baby ko most of the day. hopefully makapag-pump ako sa office. iba talaga pag kasama mo mga anak mo. and don't worry i'm sure you'll be able to find work later on. di ba masarap i-enjoy yang ganyang age, hindi pa sila mabaho sa kaka-laro sa labas, hindi pa amoy araw hahaha. super sarap yakapin at halikan all day.

@swtgrl_bee - thanks, grabe nga rin ako maka-pag browse ng femalenetwork at nagd-drool sa mga sapatos and other things hehe. ang ginawa ko para ma-curb yung urge ko to buy, nag-lista ako hehe. sabi nga ni MaritheMom, "Isusubo ko nalang ibibigay ko pa sa iyo!" haha. pero wala tayong magagawa anak natin yang mga yan, matitiis mo ba sila? kaya ang mga pang-sarili ko delayed muna :)

@MaritheMom - totoo yan about self-confidence! i know it's wrong, but you can't help thinking about how other people's career are progressing, lalo na in this age of FACEBOOK! pero come to think of it, dami naiingit sa akin kasi nakapag-WAHM ako. isipin mo, instead of staying at your desk at 2pm you could have been singing the alphabet song with your baby. it's really a privilege pero it also requires a lot from you. if i may add to your list, you also need to be able to deprioritize sleep, lalo na pag may sakit si baby or pag madami pa syang leftover energy at night. hayyyy!!! hahaha yes, totoo yan about haircut and also for spa/massage! minsan i make do with other alternatives, kasi hindi naman talaga necessary e.

@swtgrl_bee - thanks  ;D i'm going back to work kasi i'm having slight panic attacks. i'm 27 now and i'm fast approaching 30, naisip ko i might have a hard time finding a job by then. alam mo naman dito sa pilipinas may age discrimination. just go to jobstreet and you'll find job postings with age limit (candidate must not be more than __ years old). although in other countries bawal yon, pero dito if you reach a certain age mahirap na maghanap ulit ng work.  :(

and i missed working din, yun bang aalis ako for work then i will miss the house. kasi since work-at-home ako, maghapon ako sa bahay. i also miss dressing-up for work hehe. feeling ko din kasi nalolosyang na ako. it might sound selfish but i guess i want to have a sense of accomplishment sa career (i used to work in advertising and market research). pero super worth it talaga yung nag stay ako to take care of my kids. wala na yatang mas masaya pa na kasama mo maghapon yung baby mo, tapos you have time to teach him things.

aside from the self-accomplishment factor na-guilty din ako as a daughter hehe. ang mahal ng tuition ko nung college, gusto ko din naman ipakita sa dad ko na i can achieve things using my education. syempre di ba pride din ng parents na makita na may accomplishment ang anak? he did not impose it, na-guilty lang din ako na hindi ko ginagamit yung napag-aralan ko.  :) na hindi naman nasayang ang pinaghirapan niya.

regarding the odesk pay, nung una ok sya kasi konti palang ang nakaka-alam. ngayon pag sinabi kong  nag-odesk ako lahat nag tatanong kung pano, e hindi ko naman masagot kasi lately wala na din masyadong available work sa dami ng competition. :) i offer services for Apple iWork software na hindi masyadong madami ang competition, matumal pa rin ang jobs. lalo na yung mga virtual assistant na bagsakan din ng presyo kasi nga madami ding competition. so bottom line (i am speaking for myself lang ha), hindi kaya i-sustain ng odesk alone, pang sideline lang talaga sya.

pero in my experience, ok lang na reason yung "taking care of kids full-time" as reason for a gap in your resume. sa mga interview na napuntahan ko, so far ok naman yung reaction nila, valid naman na reason yon for putting your career on hold. HINDI KA NAMAN BUM OR TAMAD lang, nag-aalaga ka naman ng anak mo ano!  :)

Haha after more than two years, I've stumbled upon this thread which I have started.

I became a work-at-home mom doing oDesk jobs, part-time consultation in my previous company and some online selling.

I am going to end my 2-year "maternity leave" this July as I am going back to regular employment.

What can I say about being a WAHM? It was worth it and I am sure going to miss it. Being able to hug and kiss your child any time of the day is PRICELESS. It's worth sacrificing my career for. But I know that I have to prepare for my children's future (I gave birth to another boy within that 2-year self-imposed "maternity leave"). We've just added another member to our family and I need to help my husband to establish financial stability for our family.

I can say that I'm so happy that I took a couple of years off to stay at home. Definitely worth it.

Effective naman ba ang dumbells? Any testimonials?

Each time I take a shower, I have this chance of checking my boobs in the mirror. Sana tumaas ulit sila ng mga one inch.

How am I supposed to do this?

Sexuality / Re: BJ and releasing inside your mouth
« on: September 13, 2009, 01:54:08 am »
Hmmmm. Akala ko common lang yung pumapayag na mag-release sa mouth and swallow. hehe.  ;D I don't mind doing this for my husband, ever since pumapayag naman ako (since we were teenagers pa, bale 7 years na ito nagaganap hehe). I don't mind, hindi naman sya iba sa akin e.

Apparently most of you guys refuse to do it pala. Surprising for me kasi I never talk about these things with any of my friends e, shy ako. :P Akala ko talaga common lang yung release and swallow.

Pero there's one thing that I don't think I can ever do for my husband: anal sex. It's just too gross. But then that's another topic...

oo yung communist theme sa Anito yon kaso closed na sila hehe.

Yung sa Victoria Court parang mas classy yung mga rooms, parang totoong hotel pa nga yung iba e.

Meron pa bang Married Couple's place? yon ba yung sinasabi nyong may bible study? Dati ko pa nakikita mga signage nila (teenager pa ako non, wala pa ang mot-mot sa vocabulary ko). Hanggang ngayon meron pa ba? hehe, pwede na ako now, married na!!!!! hehe.

Getting Pregnant / Re: OB GYNE horror stories
« on: August 24, 2009, 03:18:30 am »
this is not mine, but my tita's.

hindi nag check yung OB niya ng sugar level niya nung pregnant (e may lahi kaming diabetes). yung pala sobrang taas na, as in dangerous levels na. hmp. dapat din talaga guided tayo ng books (like the Smart Parenting Pregnancy and baby's 1st year book) para at least we know what we should be expecting.

Nung turn ko na mabuntis ako pa nangungulit sa doctor ko kung kelan ang ganyan, ang ganito hehe.

Health and Nutrition / Re: HAIRFALL AFTER GIVING BIRTH
« on: August 21, 2009, 12:28:23 pm »

Mga sis.. bothered lang talaga ako sa Hairfall..

bakit ba ganon?

may mga nagtatayuan tuloy sa head ko dahil tumutubo na yung mga nalagas na hair...

May scientific explanation ba talaga to?

9mos na nakalipas... tsk tsk tsk...

kelangan ba talaga mag pa gupit? sabagay hindi pko nagpapagupit or kahit mag pa trim simula ng nbuntis at nanganak ako... kasi naman ang bagal humaba ng hair ko e.. huhuhuh

hormonal daw yon sis.


Yes this is perfectly normal based on my readings. Nakaka bother na rin kasi ang hairfall ko, minsan may buhok ko sa bibig ng baby ko!

Anyway, this is due to hormones going back the way they were before we got pregnant. As per Babycenter.com, we just have to be patient during this phase. We just have to wait until the hormonal shift comes through.  :)
