Happy Birthday to my Sexy Grandpa!

My baby turned 27 today. I know pretty good age right? Not to him. He seems to think he's really old now. If he's old then I picked a pretty good guy. He ages wonderfully!

Happy Birthday, Angel! Hope it was a good one for you and I hope you have many more good ones!



Love you!

Baby News!

My pregnancy is going very well. I have only gained 10 pounds so far and I'm hoping at most I will only gain like 10 more before she gets here. I'm already overweight enough as it is.

Already, Sofia is showing to be quite a character. She sleeps during the night with us (that is I never really feel kicks while I'm sleeping) and all day she kicks and moves around the tummy. What amuses me the most is that around a few certain parts of the day, she hiccups. It feels so strange and makes me smile at the same time. My stretch marks are quite itchy now so I'm usually trying to relieve that itch with tummy butter and light scratching.Sofia doesn't really like that though and lets me know by kicking me hard afterwards. She's already got an attitude. Juan thinks it's hilarious but he won't when has to change that first poopy diaper. (Yep, he's already recruited!)

Health wise: Went to the doc for a glucose test to test for Gestational Diabetes. I failed the first one however. I was so disappointed and was hoping that my next test would be fine. I then had to come back the next week afterwards to do a fasting 3 hour test. My arm was screaming in pain by the time I was through, but it was worth it because I passed that test! I was so happy; I mean ecstatic because both of my grandmothers had/have diabetes and I was so worried that I would get it. But God had me in his hands. I still thank Him constantly for that.

Baby Shower News: Nothing too much in the works just yet. I do want to help my mother with like planning the theme and the date, but other than that it's all her. I'm wanting to do a spring time theme...like a "April showers brings May flowers" thing but it's like I said still a thought. I want to have it like on the first of April. Hopefully nobody will April fools me at my shower. That's just too cruel for me   :P


Sofia already has a couple of things. Lots of clothes so far. She's got a going home outfit that I just love cause it looks all springtime like. I just can't wait to meet my little miss.

Perfect for spring, right?

New Hairstyle!


Micro braids are awesome. 

I got micro braids done in my hair today. They take a long time to do around 2 hours, which is torture for a woman with a big baby growing inside her belly. I had to stand up a lot of times to stretch but it was worth it for this hairstyle. Now I don't have to worry so much about it. Just brush it and go. Definitely worth it. I'm feeling beautimus for serious!

A Life Update...

via koreandrama.org


I should be resting this whole weekend, but alas...I have to work tomorrow at one. It sucks but it's money. We've been getting a lot of clients and jobs lately so everybody has to work overtime this week coming up. I'm down for more money, but these hours are ridiculous sometimes. Money is money though and I have to save up as much as I can so I can have money to take care of Soi when she gets here.

So like I said, I should be sleeping and resting now, but I'm so into a new Korean drama that I can't seem to get the urge to sleep just yet. The show is called 1000 Kisses and I really haven't gotten into the whole storyline yet, but there is already infidelity already in it. I'm liking it so far.

This Thursday coming up, I'm going to the doctor and taking my Gestational Diabetes test. Am I worried? A little bit; mostly because both my grandmothers have/had diabetes. So, hopefully I'm not going down that road. When I was first pregnant, I ate pretty good, fruits and veggies instead of snack food...but now, my cravings are a bit bigger now and I crave sweets and salties. Hopefully, that won't ruin me in the long run.

Sofia is still quite active, but I don't know how big she is weight wise. I'll have to ask when I got to the doc. Hopefully she's grown some since I was last there. She's also still very low, near my hip bone. I don't know if she's going to come upward some or what. This is my first trip as a mommy anyway.

Oh, well...no time to worry about it right now. It's late and I have a drama episode to finish.

Good night, all!

News After The New Year



Hello to a new year and hello to all of my friends. I'm sorry for the breaks I've been going on. December is always such a hectic week and the beginning of this pregnancy was quite hard for me! But I'm back and I'm going to try harder to keep track of my life.

First off I hope everybody had a wonderful New Years! I did, though nowadays I don't seem to be quite the party animal that I used to be now that I have a little person taking my energy. So, I ate a bit of all the delicious food that Juan's familia had made for their new years get together and then kind of dozed off until the time was early enough to rush in and hear the countdown. It was a good feeling! I kissed my husband for the first time of the new year and then was promptly taken home so that that could get some sleep! ;P


Did I make any resolutions? No, not really. I just want to be a good wife and mother to my husband and daughter and to me, that's resolution enough. Do I have wishes? Yes, I wish that we have a new house for Sofia to grow up in. I don't want to stay in his mother's house longer than we need.

My Pregnancy



I'm halfway through this long nine-month journey! I can't believe it! Soon it will be spring and I will have my little baby in my arms. For those that know, Juan and I are having a little girl that we have decided to name Sofia. Most of the time you will see me call her Soi as in Soy Sauce. I don't know why I picked that name; maybe I like the way it sounds and it's unique. Already, Soi has some clothes and a few items and it's really making this all feel so real. At first, it was weird not really feeling a baby inside, but then after I saw her in the ultrasound, everything changed.

I don't know if this sounds strange but...I already love her. I have yet to meet this little girl and I already love her. She already has quite a personality as well. She's active most of the time after I eat or when there is music playing. She's a very cozy girl too. Whenever I have a sonogram and they want her to move for a better view, she stays put and I just say, "She's a cozy one...she doesn't want to move for anybody."

Juan is getting used to the fact that there's a little girl inside of me as well. He was happy when he found out that she was a girl and he already tells me that she's going to be spoiled by him and others as well. I can't wait to see what happens with that!

Career

I waited for almost 6 long months to work again and finally, I got a temp job. I work for a division of Equifax ( you know the credit people who check on your credit scores) and I do data entry and customer service on the phone. Like I said, it's temporary for about 3 months, but that's fine because I need the money and it will give me a chance to find another one while getting that money to buy Sofia items.



Marriage



Being married to Juan is a different path unlike any I've ever partaken on. I still love this man like I love oxygen in my lungs, but it's a challenge still with communication. We're working on it and we're still working on the calling each other "husband" and "wife" thing. Sometimes on accident, I'll say he's my boyfriend instead of my husband. Hopefully, that will change cause we're only on our 2nd month being married. We have a long way to go.



I sure hope that 2012 is good for us. I used to think that 2012 is going to end in catastrophe and end of the world stuff, but I'm not going to think that way anymore. Now I'm going to focus on life. Focus on Juan and focus on Sofia. My theme now is "Living the golden life." That's the life I want and that's the life I'm going to achieve! I can't say that I'll be posting as much as before, but when you have life coming at you, you have to take what you got and I'm sure most of you understand that!
