Thank you to the lady who gave up her seat to me on the GO train today....
There was this other woman who was pregnant and she went around asking if people would give up their seats for her. I would never have the guts to do that. That's why I am so grateful for the lady who saw me standing and offered me her seat. I wasn't even in a spot that she could easily saw me! Thank you and God bless you. :)
Last night K started kicking me at 3:30am. I didn't want to get up, even though I knew he was hungry. At 4am, he started getting hiccups! That made me felt guilty so I went and got myself a bowel of cereal. Ahy... This boy is going to be trouble. Whenever he/I feel hungry he would be kicking like crazy, and if i don't eat soon enough, he would get the hiccups. Lack of sleep is merely a description of how i feel right now. I am just exhausted~~~ Good thing my work replacement started her orientation today so she was able to do some of the stuff for me. Otherwise i don't think i would have made it back home today. Deciding to leave 2 weeks before my due date was stupid and overambitious. Now i'm regretting it. As long as K stays put (upside down too), and my legs don't give up on me, i guess i'll survive.
for Caleb's arrival. One night ming just put together the bassinet and things started to feel real, like "yeah, there is really a baby coming!" I am starting to feel a little nervous, kinda like before an exam... So we did K's laundry today, folded them and prepared what to bring to the hospital. I think we have way more than enough clothes for him. It looks a lot, but half of it is flannels and wash clothes, half was gift from other people and baby shower this past week, and the rest I bought. So don't say I bought too much oh....
Caleb is still breech... This is making me so frustrated!!!!
I tried the exercises from the information brochure that my midwife gave me, but it just seems like every time i get into those positions for the baby to turn, he just freeze. I have a feeling that he doesn't like it when i do them, because before and after the exercise, he would be moving crazy, but during it, he just refuses to move.
Perhaps it's the shape of my uterus? Or he's already too big to be turning... Ming and i were saying that he must not be very flexible, and we have come to the conclusion that he got that from me. I can't even touch my toes!
But listen people, it is not my fault that this baby wants to be breech. Even if it's because of the shape of my uterus, it is still not my fault!
So what if i'll have a c-section, don't make it sound like such a terrible thing coz tons of women give birth by C.
When I was taking a shower today, i noticed something funny about being pregnant.
I usually turn towards the shower head while shampooing my hair, so the hair doesn't get all wet from the water. But today when i was doing that, the water coming down from the shower head was sprayed directly onto my big belly and indirectly sprayed onto my face... My eyes were closed and at first i was thinking "what the heck, where is the water coming from?" Then i realized it. So i had to turn my back from the water. Hahaha... i thought that was funny.
I think the number one thing that most pregnant women worry about is the health of their baby. I have decided that no matter what health condition my baby will have, i will love him nevertheless. I've seen too many parents with sick babies and they all love their kids. But of course i still pray to God that Caleb will be healthy and normal.
I guess i am getting a 2nd cold in a row. This sickness never went away!!! That's why i've been so tired lately...
This year we've spent money on so many things: new house, new baby, old house, etc. Last night water pipes bursted in our master bedroom and leaked underneath into the dinning room and basement. Ming and I took the day off and called up a plumber. Ming insisted on calling a "white" company even though I think a Chinese plumber would charge less. Whatever, it's his decision. After almost $500, our pipes are fixed. Now we have to find a general contractor to nicely insulate and patch up the wall so this doesn't happen again. Who knows how much that's gonna cost.
After all this, we went to Costco (bad idea) and saw the brand of juicer that we've always wanted happened to be touring there. We came out $700 shorter (that includes $100 membership fee which expired the end of last year). Ouch... we didn't go to work and we spent over $1200! Life's tough.
But just like what Stephanie said, if things could be fixed by money, it's all good.
Right now I just wish that K would turn his head up-side-down!!! That's something money can't buy...
