Felizcia – Felicidad x Consorcia
Lila – short for ‘Little Langga’ (for I know you’d look like your daddy before you were even conceived)
Baby love, our journey wasn’t easy but it was all worth it.
1st trimester: I had threatened miscarriage so I had to take meds to keep you. I wasn’t allowed to take long walks, climb stairs or do strenuous activities.
2nd trimester: My blood pressure went up. I was required to take maintenance meds and watch my diet to keep it down. OB was afraid I’ll have pre-eclampsia.
3rd trimester: I had preterm labor so they injected me with steroids to help your lungs mature. My BP went as high as 160/100 even with the meds I was taking. Also, you stopped growing. Your weight stayed the same when you should be gaining a pound or 2 per week. The doctor decided to induce labor. I was worried of my BP but more worried of the fact that you would be born premature. But God is great. I endured 4 hours of labor pains, sent to the delivery room when I was 9cm dilated and with 5 pushes (and lots of prayers), I heard your cry. It was the best feeling EVER.
Lila, you are the best thing that ever happened to me and daddy. We love you so much our baby love, our answered prayer, our little miracle, our gift from above. ❤️💕
My then fiance, now husband wasn’t with me physically during the planning stage of our wedding. I wanted the preparation place to be the reception but a couple already booked the place for their wedding. Only option is to change the date but that is non-negotiable since most of our guests already booked a flight on the announced date. What we did was booked the place just for preparation and make up and booked another place for the reception.
After 11 months of preparation, we are down to the last details of the wedding. When my boyfriend visited my hometown last 2014, we already decided to have the prenup shoot in Iligan City. We visited some places including the waterfalls in our village. It was practical for us since we will have our wedding at the same city. We contacted some photographers in town and talked about our plans. When she knew that my fiance is from Bohol, she got excited and said she is willing to shoulder the expenses for her travel ticket and hotel. All we need to pay her was the professional fee. We were really grateful since it’s an opportunity for us to also include his hometown at the start of our marriage. So I immediately filed a 6-day vacation leave and we’re off to the “Heart of the Islands”.
Hi! It has been a while since my last update. I am very happy to announce to everyone that after the long, arduous battle, I came out victorious. 🙂 I am now a Certified Public Accountant trying to prove myself worthy of the title.
Dreams really do come true.
