My two pregnancies were very different. The only the same characteristics that I had with those pregnancies were the difficulty during the first trim, where I had a very rough conception. Hubby and I waited for over a year before I got pregnant with Rylie, it was a long awaited moment. We were hoping that I could get pregnant sooner but I guess the distance and the anxiety really affected my ability to get regnant.

We were civilly wed for 1 year and 2 months and we decided to have a second wedding in church. I think that was a great blessing because I got pregnant after our church wedding even if my husband only stayed for a week then. I was visiting my Mom's place the day that I was suppose to check if I will have my monthly period or not. I kinda hoped and prepared for it, so before I went to Mama's place I bought me a pregnancy test.

I was only delayed for a day and I was really praying not to have Ms. Red and God really heard my prayer. When I checked, I saw two red lines on the P-test and I did not sleep at all that night. I waited till I could call my husband who was in Guam then and tell him the good news.

When I gave birth to Rylie, my OB GYN asked me if I wanted some birth control pills and I said no. Although hubby and I really planned to just have one child, I did not want to take any birth control pills. I am so grateful to God that He gave us another bundle of joy. Rylie was only nine months when I got pregnant again with EJ, it was tough and I wasn't really excited when I first learned that I was pregnant again. Now I know why God gave me another one, to make our lives fully complete with a girl and a boy. But yeah, both of them gave me a very rough conception.

Parenting Tip of the Day
(source: newsletter from

Morning sickness is no fun but it’s a sign that your body is working for this pregnancy, so that should make the nausea and vomiting a little more bearable, right? Eat small meals and snacks through the day to keep sickness at bay, even if eating is the last thing on your mind. And be sure to stay hydrated!

No pregnancy is easy. All pregnancies are difficult and put a lot of strain on the mother. But after giving birth, the mother is the most beautiful and wonderful creature on earth because she took part with God in the procreation of a human being. Such is the joy of motherhood where every molecule of the body is excited in giving birth to a new creature on earth. Blessed ka talaga ni Lord for giving you both Rylie and EJ. Thanks for the feel good post. God bless you all always.
