As much as I’d like to complain about being pregnant and the small uncomfortable situations that pregnancy brings, I remind myself of what it took for us to get here and all of a sudden, all the pain becomes bliss (I hope this “technique” works during labor too)…
…with the exception of acne. That will never be bliss. I fucking hate my face being covered in pimples. Whatever happened to the promised (and expected) pregnancy glow? I got to deal with pregnancy pimples all over my body instead. Read the rest of this entry
Being pregnant has been amazing so far and now that Im 2 months away from giving birth, as my belly gets bigger, reality is setting in and I keep thinking how the hell am I getting this baby out of me? The comforting part is that I know everybody else does it, so I must be able to do it to, but it does feel kind of impossible. Read the rest of this entry
Are you guys leaking like crazy or is it just me? I’ve been having a lot of cervical mucus since the very beginning but this past week the leakage has crossed the line! Read the rest of this entry
Life is good!! There are no words to describe how cool it is to feel baby moving… It’s kinda weird at first and it felt just like I thought it would, but it puts a smile on my face every time! It’s a really cool experience and I can finally say I feel pregnant now!! Feeling the baby moving gives me a chance to almost interact with him… as if he’s saying “hey, I’m here” and I’m poking him back so he knows I’m “listening”. Read the rest of this entry
We had our gender reveal! We were supposed to travel on Thanksgiving but the tickets to Kona were so expensive that we decided to stay on Oahu last minute. The plan was to do a dinner thing for our parents and have my sister bake the cake so we could find out together but since we were spending Thanksgiving with everyone after all, we (I) decided to do the cake thing at dinner with everyone.

Its finally here… helloooo 2nd trimester! I’ve been feeling pretty good overall. The only symptoms I’ve had were extreme hunger and fatigue. Oh the fatigue… I fall asleep everywhere and all the time. I have recently added a 20 minute bathroom power nap in the morning and one in the afternoon, because just sleeping under my desk during lunch hour wasn’t enough. I’m looking forward to the “wave of energy” that supposedly comes with this new phase of pregnancy. Read the rest of this entry
I leave work at about 5:30 and yesterday in particular I was starving by 5pm. I have friends visiting from Australia so on my way home I called my husband and my parents to tell them we were going out to eat as soon as I got home cuz I could not wait to eat.
When I finally saw everybody it was a fest, I haven’t this seen this friend in years, so there was a lot of catching up and hugging to do. My parents weren’t coming because they wake up at 4am for work so I convinced them to come by going to this Thai restaurant that my dad always wanted to try and offering to pick up their bill. We finally make it to the restaurant there as 1 hour wait. I was hungry but I was happy, I can wait a little bit, I thought. The owner came out and complimented us while we waited.
I’m still secretly hoping that my embryo split into two and I have two babies in there… but the doctors just haven’t fount it. Just wanted to put that out there for the universe to acknowledge. It’s happened before! This would be an awesome surprise…
Did this when I was in bedrest… good way to kill time… If you’re curious to know which tests work and which don’t, check it out. XOXO
