Patiently Waiting!

4 comments
It's been 2 weeks since my last post. I just want to let everyone know that i haven't given birth yet..... The waiting is definitely killing me. It's not that i'm miserable like some of my relatives would think, i just can't wait to meet him/her. The thought of having an entirely new life ahead of me is way beyond words to describe it. I'm just one of those excited parent to be you know. This coming thursday is my due date, if i won't have it by then my doctor will schedule an induction. I heard it's more painful than the normal labor?

thanksgiving photos(38weeks)

My thanksgiving was spent with Richard's family. In-laws arrived from Kuwait for vacation(they're cruising in mexico right now) at same time to be here when i give birth this week. All of us went to my sister in laws husbands family for thanksgiving lunch, i feasted too much that i could barely walk, i thought i will go on labor lol. What a sumptuous meal they had prepared, everything in the table was so tasty. I'm not fond of desserts but i end up eating two kinds(pumpkin roll cake and coconut pie). How can i resist? besides i have a good reason to pig out. I felt guilty afterwards but what the heck i'm PREGNANT! Friday was shopping day, NO we're not one of the door busters that day. I'd hang myself first before i do that. Unless it's a big ticket item purchase maybe i'll consider waking up my butt up at 5am. We started at 9am- 8pm, not too bad since we went to few other places too. Though my feet were beat up that day, we did get almost everything in our list and some good bargains.

This week is nothing but chores for the babys arrival. Crib and stroller were up and ready for use, clothes and blankets are washed and neatly folded, hospital bag was packed, house is immaculately cleaned and partly decorated with christmas ornaments. Little projects here and there to kill time while playing the waiting game lol. Admittingly, both of us just don't want to get bored, especially me that i'm on my maternity leave already. Doing nothing is just not my cup of tea. I'll go crazy. Speaking of project, instead of buying a complete nursery furniture we decided to restain our old armoire and nightstand to match with the cherry/mahogany crib that i picked out from babies r' us. A white crib would have been a good match but dark wood attracted me most. It hasn't been put into use since we moved here from florida might as well redo it and save the money for something else. Besides, it keeps us more occupied. We stripped and sanded it yesterday, hopefully we'll get it done today.

Unfortunately, Richard and i catched some bug. Cold or cold allergy of some sort . Mine started couple of days ago and his is just starting. How ironic is that, hopefully it will go away when i give birth.

That's all for now folks. On my next entry expect some baby photos/updates. Coz whether he/she decided to stay in my belly, this baby is coming out regardless. See more photos.

Weekend at 36 weeks

11 comments
Not much going on lately, as usual the same work-house routine and vice versa kind of life here in the lone star state lol. Work is definitely keeping me active physically, which is a good thing. Because for some reason my body tend to crash or just plain butt lazy when i'm home although i still do regular chores except that my mobility is not that quick or should i say deprive to move more/do more than what i can. I know i still could but prefer not to for the sake of my unborn child. Stubborness kicks in every now and then, but i make sure i'm grounded and learn to refuse to do heavy stuff . Fighting hard with myself here folks. So yes, thanks for my job huh, otherwise i'll be dead bored.

Last Saturday i was invited to a birthday party. I decided to come since nothing's really planned for me and Richard that day. That's right this pregnant lady can still rock hehe. I went with some friends from work Jovita and Cruz with their friends along. Party was set in the farmland 16 miles away downtown. It's an interesting place to be for a change. You know the house in the middle of nowhere where you can run naked and fire guns all day long and no one would even care coz your next door neighbor is a mile away lol. A little chilly afternoon but a fun one. Lot's of drink too bad i can only drown myself with virgin margaritas, not my favorite drink but it has been since i got pregnant. Since we arrived early at 4pm and other invited guests were assumingly snobs to enjoy with we decided to leave before 8pm. Too bad for Jovita she only get to be there less than 2hrs. Don't you worry Jovy, next time around we'll party and do karaoke till morning(i know i owe you one). All in all it was a short exciting getaway for this pregnant lady of yours.
