Baby’s Day Out and Then Some

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.
Taking a breather from all the beauty products posts first! Can you believe Christmas is only 42 days away? And I’m due in 74 days! Sometimes, everything goes by so quickly we hardly notice the little things around us that have been changing. The year has gone by in a flash that I can still vividly remember ringing in 2012 last year! Again, it’s come to that time where we reflect and ponder on what has come and gone this year for us. Certainly mine has been one spectacular ride — as 2012 is the year I got pregnant, engaged and married. And I must say I can’t be happier! But then again, I will be — as 2013 will bring my us The Misty Daughter! A reader emailed me this and instead of replying to her, I’d like to share my answers with everyone: Are you really pregnant? Like wow! What’s your first reaction? How many months are you delayed? Weren’t you scared? How did you conquer it? Just curious cos you’re too young to be a mom. Yes, I am really pregnant! And my first reaction is a mix of emotions that left me speechless and emotionless for about 10, 15, maybe 20 minutes or so. I’m 23, just a year after finishing college and working my ass off as I climb the corporate ladder in a multinational beauty and cosmetics company. So many thoughts ran through my head — how will I tell my parents? How do we support the baby? How will I fulfill my corporate dreams? And ultimately, am I ready for this?  To cut the story short, I have realized and learned that it’s true how your life direction can change in a snap, what you planned won’t always turn out how you want it to be — and that can be good. Because most of the time — life has something better planned for you. I have embraced the idea that maybe the corporate world has consumed me more than it motivated me and that being a young mother will open my eyes up to realities I could have just overlooked and ignored otherwise. My days of being a young, wild and free bachelorette are far behind me and I’m glad that it is because I’ve been careless, irresponsible and hedonistic more than enough already. I’m proud to say that I’ve passed that stage and am ready for another stage in life. And yes, sometimes in life, you think you’re not ready — but there will come challenges and obstacles, sometimes even miracles — and all you have to do is STEP UP to the plate. Then you will see and you will know that you’ve always been ready.

    Aw, the thumbnail of your post made me click the link and read your post. You are a diva! Look at those pictures! Who would tell na preggy ka? Hehehehe. I think, whether you expected it or not, pregnancy is one of the happiest moment in woman’s life. Ako kaya, what would I feel kapag naging mommy na din ako? hehehe You are so gorgeous ate Sha! Your baby will surely become a diva din soon!

    I bet it’s a girl because you’re still pretty.. Congrats! ♥

    Can I just say, “WHAT BABY??” haha you don’t look pregnant in the first few photos! Just when you finally showed the lower part of your body. 🙂 Such a blooming mom! It’s true when they say you’re more pretty pag girl ang dala!:)

    I love your answer above. Life has many surprises and our plans don’t always goes the way we want it, but our babies are certainly a great surprise and blessing!

  6. November 12, 2012 / 7:58 am

    Congratz on the baby! 🙂 You look really great! You’re going to be one very cool mum, with aviators and all!

    You know what sis,it really inspired me!not just we have the same drive of this stage but we,at the young age, conquered all of these changes in our life.But,in this way,it was God’s planned for us, out of our decisions/plans but a BIG BLESSING from above,plus,it was the ESSENCE OF BEING A WOMAN!Haha.

    I too have just graduated and doing an internship in my dream media industry when I found out I was pregnant. Though I don’t like to admit it, I have been really depressed lately too because of it. Don’t get me wrong, me and my boyfriend are happy with our bubba and we can’t wait to meet him/her… but everything has changed so suddenly and we’re not really prepared for this.

    Thank you so much for your post. I really needed this. Being a young mother isn’t going to be easy but I know it’s going to be worth it. You’re one of my inspirations 🙂 <3

    This is such a nice post. I’m happy for you and hope you’ll have a beautiful baby. will be back to see more posts from this blog.

    btw, you have really amazing photos… care to share your techniques? will really appreciate it.

    Very inspiring, Shari. And you are a gorgeous, soon-to-be young mom. =)

  14. November 12, 2012 / 1:07 pm

    I just love reading this post. It reminded me when I first found out I got pregnant at such a young age of 23. MIXED emotions indeed 🙂
    I know you can surpass all of these challenges. And let me just say you are such a very pretty preggy 🙂

    Very inspiring. 🙂 It takes a strong woman to decide to keep an unplanned child, and that says a lot about you!

  16. November 12, 2012 / 2:15 pm

    i was around that age when i had my first. it was overwhelming at times, but you’re right…you just have to step up to the plate. even with all the planning in the world, you’ll never fully be prepared. take the punches as they come along. you’ll do just fine!

    [oomph.]

    Hi shari!! :)) I can’t say that I know the feeling because I am not a mom yet. But I have friends who are just like you and I am very proud of them. It may not be the perfect timing – but it will always be worth it! 🙂 can’t wait to meet the misty daughter! 🙂

  28. November 13, 2012 / 7:06 am

    First you have got to be one of the prettiest preggy women I’ve seen. Yes you are indeed young but based on this post, you sound wiser than your years. I think you are indeed ready to be a mom and all I can say is, your baby is lucky for having a mother as sweet as you.

  29. November 13, 2012 / 9:06 am

    So glad I found your blog because it looks amazing and I’m all for reading about strong women embrace their femininity. You look gorgeous and look forward to future posts about Misty Daughter 😉

    great hair and nails!

    It’s good to hear that you were able to embrace evrything so quick. I think it’d overwhelm me :/ Don’t think I’m quite ready for motherhood yet, you are so young yet so grounded and mature. Thanks for sharing 😀

  46. November 20, 2012 / 8:19 pm

    Pregnancy suits you talaga. You look so pretty!!

  47. November 21, 2012 / 7:03 am

    one of the perks of being a young mom (i had my firstborn at 20) is that you get to see your kids grow older and you’re still not that old.
    i mean when my kids (i got two, 12 and 10 yr olds) finish university, i’ll be in my mid 40s. *wink*
    another is that you’d most probably deliver easier than those in their 30s.
    believe me, parang nag cr lang lol sorry gross haha.

    i’m sure you know this but i still want to say: you’re super pretty kahit preggers!

  48. November 21, 2012 / 4:20 pm

    Hi Ms. Shari 🙂 You look great. I sooo love your hair. And thanks for sharing wonderful words of wisdom. Actually, I was paying more attention to your photos. But as I read some comments before mine, I scrolled up and read the paragraphs. And what you said up there, that’s really inspiring. These words struck me the most “life has something better planned for you”. As for me, who’ll be taking up my board exam this weekend, whatever happens to it, I believe that’s what God wants me to be.

    By the way, please please check out my blog post about Ray-Ban. And please leave a comment. Hee Thank you sooo much 🙂
