31 weeks 9 more to go... and I am in love

So much has happened since I last posted about my pregnancy report. I don't know how this happened, but I have already fall in love with this little baby in my belly. I don't know how I felt in love with her even though we have not even met yet. I just love her so much and I want to give her the world! I want to give her the best of everything. I can hardly wait to meet her.

Sophie's movements has become more and more prominent, I can really feel the hands/feet gliding on my belly. I think it's really funny that she kicks when I have a laptop/book on my belly, I guess she doesn't like the pressure. When I am getting a massage, she likes one, too. It felt like she is sticking her bum, or back against my belly, so she could also feel the massage. She usually kicks and moves around at the end of my massage, kind of protesting-ish. "Hey, how about me? I want a massage too!" I have a feeling that this baby is going to enjoy massage as much as her mommy does.

Talking about baby massages, I read some where that baby massages helps with colicky babies. So, we'll see.

I won't lie, it has been hard to sleep with my belly being so big. I am very tired, and it has been hard to breath when I lay flat. So, let's say that there are just a few pillows on my bed to prop me up. I pee several times a night, and it's a treat if i could sleep through the whole night without waking up.

I start noticing that my shoes are getting tighter, and my face more swollen. The stretchy t-shirts that I thought would still fit till Sophie is born are no longer fitting. I need to go shopping, but I am just too cheap to go buy clothes that I am only going to wear for 2 months. eh, for the sake of my comfortableness, i better go get some new clothes. Else i'll be a grouch, cuz i am uncomfortable.

9 more weeks~!

Empowering Your Confidence | Jones New York



I saw this campaign today for the first time in one of my work brain storm meeting. A lot of thoughts came to my mind when I was watching it. I am glad that the LDS church aren't the only ones telling women that they are amazing. "Look at where we come from" - since the beginning of the time, women have always been challenged in society for being women. 2009 was the first time a women CEO handing off her job to another women CEO. (according JNY video) WOW!

As I watch these women executives, models, and staffs talking about the influence their mother has made in their life, and they are where they are today because of their mother, it made me appreciate even more of all the women in my life.

Ladies, WE ARE AMAZING! Watch the video, it's pretty cool. The full version is actually on the Jones New York's website.
Here is the link http://www.jny.com/Empowerment/LIEBOVITZ,default,pg.html


Enjoy!


p.s. lol, only if the men at work actually look like this....

Baby DDR

It's quite interesting to feel a lot of the baby movement, and especially now I can see the little thump thump on my belly. Last night baby Sophie was going nuts inside, I am not sure what she was doing. But there were a ton of kicking going on. It almost felt like she's having a Dance Dance Revolution party in there. I had Steve put his hand on my belly, and he was shocked how much Sophie is moving. Maybe she's dancing to "We Like to Party" from Vanga boys.

Target Store Brand Dishwasher Detergent

I love Target, it offers variety of great products in their own store brand, and it saves me money. Most things I buy that are Target brand, (Up & Up) are usually pretty nice. I really like the stretchy trash bags, plastic baggies, paper plates, and etc. They are way cheaper than the original brand, works just as great, and it's wallet forgiving!


One thing that I would never buy again is the Up & Up Dishwasher detergent. I usually use Cascade tablets, and I usually buy them in bulk from Costco. Since they last for almost a year for $15. Anyway, we just moved into our new condo in the beginning of August, and I thought to myself why not try out the Up&UP brand. It was only $3.50, if i don't like it, it's not gonna kill me to toss the box.

I am tossing the box! Bad experience with the dishwasher detergent. It left a thick white film on all of my beautiful dishes... yuck!!

SO..... don't buy Target brand Up&Up dish washer detergent. Spend the money and buy Cascade or whatever brand you like.
