My Maternity Shoot Plus List of Makeup Products that I Used

 It has been a month since I last updated this blog. How I miss blogging! (Seriously) It was not my intention to have a hiatus. I solely blame PLDT for my lack of blog update due to their poor internet service. As of the moment, I am still using my husband's mobile wifi to connect (take note my SMART WIFI is not even working properly too). PLDT promised to send over technicians and they failed to assist me 2x. I promise not to rant about PLDT but their poor service has been causing me time and money. My client even called me and asked me the other day if I have forgotton about her because I was not able to send engagement proposals for a week now.  Anyways, enough of my drama.  I am presently on my 36 weeks of pregnancy. Everything is ready from my hospital bag, baby stuff and hospital bills (Yes, we paid already. More on this on my next post after giving birth to help future mommies out there).  Right now, I am focused on labor, contractions, epidural, how painful the process will be,  my baby's health and all those jitters on giving birth. 

Last week, I finally had my maternity photo shoot with the best photographers in town. Sino pa ba? My no. 1 wedding Supplier - Ruffa and Mike Photography. They now also have a Art Love Life that focuses on life's milestones like birthdays, baptism, debuts, and etc. Honestly, I was telling my husband that I do not want to continue with the maternity shoot because lately, I have been feeling a lot of pains and I get too exhausted easily. I also feel bloated and ugly because of my weight gain and my psoriasis flare ups. 

Good thing my husband prodded me to pursue this maternity shoot because I was really blown away with the photos. 

Here are SOME of my maarteng shots ( WARNING featuring my makapal na mukha poses hahaha). Yes, I showed my belly. No, I am not flawless as you think. My stretchmarks are underneath my huge belly and the lighter ones were covered Maybelline Fit ME concealer and MAC Studiofix powder. hihi Oh but I really do not have  a conspicuous linea negra. :)

My manas na kamay says hello!

 Oh , and it's a boy!!!!
I already had a hunch that it was a boy even before undergoing Congenital Anomaly Scan. My baby is very active and with my skin break outs (alam na). Our baby's name is Jonah Malachi. Both prophets from the Bible. The book of Jonah is one of my favorite books in the Bible because it speaks volume of my Christian walk. Malachi means "My Angel". This book also contains one of my life verses that is very close to my heart and it talks about stewardship of God's blessings. 

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." Malachi 3:10 

Hopefully, I will be able to blog before giving birth. :)
