The day has finally come when our tummies look extra round and there is something amazing inside it. Yay, not food:-) Growing inside our tummy is the loveliest creature we will set our eyes on, ever. The joy of knowing we are expecting is beyond words. Of course, coupled with those “awww, look honey, he’s moving” moments, there will be times when the morning vomiting seems to be unending and the lower back pain is draining, but overall, it is wonderful:-)
Recalling my first pregnancy, I was so into it I was attending birthing seminars, reading “what to expect when you’re expecting,” buying all those classical music for my baby and reading books to him. It was OA as my mom said but I indulged myself and my baby in it. Hey, anything for that cutie right?:-)
Today, another helpful and much needed product is introduced for expecting moms and for their babies. Belly Armor is a line of maternity bands/blankets that protects our womb and babies from everyday radiation. Everyday radiation is emitted by cellphones, laptops, tablets,.WIFI etc. According to Belly Armor’s Philippine distributor, Crescom Biomedics, numerous studies have shown that this type of radiation impacts the way cells grow/function and how DNA replicates. This type of cell activity is greatest during pregnancy when DNA replication and cell growth are at their highest rates. And at the rate of our exposure to these types of radiation, protection is inevitable if we want to avoid complications in the long run.
Crescom sent over the maternity band for review. I’m not pregnant (hehe just looks it) but I tried the product on and I like that it was very comfortable. The cotton material is very good quality (breathable and light) and it is lined with RadiaShield® Fabric. RadiaShield® Fabric is a highly conductive silver textile with the same shielding properties as a 1/4-inch thick sheet of aluminum. It shields by neutralizing incoming electromagnetic waves, canceling out the ambient radiation and reducing your exposure. [Read More...]
“Everything just fell into place!” That is what Rita has to say of her newly created costume store, The Pumpkin Store. The Pumpkin Store is barely a year old but its creation has managed to land the front cover of Smart Parenting’s October 2014 issue!
Rita and I date way back! She is my schoolmate in high school and my housemate and gimmick mate in college.

Exactly a year ago, I took a break from motherhood and took an amazing 6-day, 13,000 feet, 48 km trek up the beautiful mountains of Lantang, Nepal (read about my adventure here)
The breather enriched me.
Cheers to moments we create!
