Any SAHMies here?
« on: September 15, 2010, 02:02:35 pm »

Hi mommies!

I'm a stay at home mom to a 10 month old baby boy.  I used to teach grade school kids but ever since i gave birth, i've stayed at home with my baby.  Can't afford to leave him in the care of a yaya or even a relative.  And besides, he's breastfeeding so we need to be together.

Hope to meet other SAHMies so we can share our experiences and support each other with our daily trials.  After all, being a SAHMy may look easy but it's definitely one of the toughest roles we play.

Hope to hear from you soon!

hi mommies! ako din SAHM. Buti nga kayo naranasan nyo magwork, ako hindi. Pagka graduate ko kasi, got preggy. Ayaw ng hubby ko na magwork ako kasi, ewan ko natatakot talaga sya. Then pagka panganak naman, ayun mas mahirap iwan ang baby. hindi din talaga namin mapagtiwala sa yaya, and wala naman pwede mapag-iwan. So ako nalang talaga! Happy naman ako, sarap kasi kasama ko baby ko 24/7. As in kami lang dalawa (seafarer si hubby)

lately, napapaisip ako magwork. kasi gusto namin ng bagong bahay.. at ayoko na pasakayin ng barko asawa ko. kaya yun. ewan ko lang kung papayag asawa ko, at KUNG kaya ko nga iwan si baby. masaya maging sahm,pero pag naisip mo na yung napakadaming kelangan.. naku..

sis nuna, sa barge din nag-work dati si hubby.  but when i got pregnant, di ko na sya pinayagan bumalik.  hirap magbuntis nang hindi kasama ang hubby.

rewarding ang pagiging SAHM, pero minsan nakaka-kurta ng utak, lalo na in my case na 10 years akong nagtuturo, laging may excitement sa buhay.  ngayon, exciting pa rin dahil ako msimo nagbabantay kay baby pero may times na hinahanap ko ang challenging life ng teaching at bilang level coordinator.  but definitely, choosing to be a SAHM is the best decision for my son.

ako naman sis, nung malaman kasi namin na preggy ako, paalis na si hubby pasampa ng barko. so tinuloy niya yun, pero shinorten niya yung contract niya para makauwi pag nanganak ako. plano namin nun apply sa new zealand para sama2 kami, mauna lang muna si hubby. pero binigyan sya ng promotion sa barko, e sayang talaga. kaya nagstay lang sya samin ni baby ng halos 5 months, then balik sa barko ng 6 months. Kaya talagang sa bahay nako, kase mahirap un nasa ibang bansa na nga si hubby tas di pa ko maiiwan sa baby.

Hello sis tyger:

Masarap and fulfilling ang pagiging SAHM! ;D Hindi na ako work since I got pregnant nung 2008. Nung una plan ko na muna makaabot at least 2 years old si Yuri para makawork and makatulong sa pagiipon kahit papano. Eh mukha malabo ng mangyari kasi I am about to give birth next month para sa 2nd baby namin. Sabi ni husband mas gusto niyang andito ako sa bahay kasi hirap syang ipagkatiwala sa iba nag bahay, babies, liit pa kasi ni Yuri, at ang pagaasikaso sa kanila. Cgro pag nakaluwag narin kami ipon ng pang business at bahay na rent to own sana.

Masarap maging SAHM kasi more chances of bonding ke baby, wala ka namimis na developmental milestones sa kanya ;D

nag-migrate kami at don ako nag-umpisa maging SAHM. buntis ako non kaya enjoy nung umpisa kasi di na kelangan mag-office. pero nabagot din nung ilang months na si baby. kasi 8 years na akong "career woman" nung nag quit ako. kaloka din kasi wala kaming relatives don at mga kakilala.
correct me if im wrong, sa pinas ba, mababa talaga ang tingin sa mga SAHM? yun kasi ang nakukuha kong vibe sa mga pinoy. nakakalungkot.

@xian_mamie buti ka pa sis kasama mo na hubby mo dyan.

SAHM din ako, based kasi sa computation namin ng hubby ko kung kukuha kami ng yaya tapos mag wowork ako break even lang, yung matitira sa sweldo ko sa yaya lang mapupunta. and di ko pa matutukan si baby, iba kasi pag alagang nanay. one factor din kasi yung na-bedrest ako since 1st month ng pregnancy ko naisip ko kung pano ko iiwanan yung baby ko paglabas niya eh kung yung nasa loob ko nga sya muntik na may mangyaring di maganda sa kanya, ano pa kaya pag labas niya.  :)

Hi mga mommies!  Count me in!   I'm also SAHM, very challenging at times but very rewarding!  As in solo akong nag-aalaga most of the time kasi syempre iba ang alaga ng mommy sa daddy.  Purely breastfed din si baby kaya talaga maghapon, magdamag kaming together!  I'm very happy kasi nakikita ko na ang everyday development ni baby at napahinga ako from my 9yr straight working status.   I really wanted to take care of our baby and wanted to rest from work kaya lang I was wrong...mas matinding responsibility pala ang maging full time SAHM.  Tama yung sabi nila na 24hr job and no day off minsan.  Kasi kami ni hubby nag-dedate pa rin pero kasama si baby!  Di pwede iwan kasi ako lang ang source, mahirap baka magutom.  Hay!  I salute and admire all the mommies who decided to take care of their babies themselves!  Mabuhay tayong mga SAHM!  Thank you Lord for the everyday strength, patience, wisdom and joy in taking care of my baby and hubby! -  This is my prayer everyday!  God bless us!  ;)

same here mga mommies. SAHM din ako. I used to work in semicon kaya lang like with mommy angelic_louise nung kinucompute na namin yung expenses nakita namin ni hubby na much better if i stay home na lang and take care of the baby. less expense kc i get to breastfeed fulltime. d na bibili ng milk formula.  ;D mas matututukan ko pa si baby. though minsan naiisip ko mg work ulit. d ko kc masyado naenjoy ang pagiging career woman ko. ;D 3 yrs pa lang ako sa industry nung ng decide mg SAHM. pero iisipin ko palng na d k makakasama baby ko for a whole day parang ko na kaya.
