Splurge here:December issueIn other news:Rein's birthday is tomorrow and we are off today to buy a present for her. She's actually overwhelmed with the Christmas gifts she received and she has no specific birthday request. She got everything on her christmas wishlist and when I asked her yesterday what she wanted, she just said a new bracelet. We'll have buffet lunch at Chef Mickey to celebrate. She wants to go to Disneyland again, probably she thinks it's just a regular park that you can go anytime you like :) But with my condition now at 33 weeks, it would be very uncomfortable for me.Update on my pregnancy
:We went to my OB yesterday for routine check-up and NST. The baby is getting bigger, the result of NST is ok. We'll be back after 2 weeks for another NST and on Friday I have another appoitment with my Endoc. I know she'll be a bit disappointed with my sugar level due to the holidays.

This is all for now. I'll be back tomorrow to give an update on my lil munchkin. We are off to the immigration office tomorrow for my mom's visa after my doctor's appointment. We are hoping to get a long term visa for my mom since I will be giving birth here.
About our Lil Munchkin
Last Friday hubby and I went to St. Luke's International Hospital for a thorough ultrasound of our Lil Munchkin. I decided to bring my ipod to keep my sanity. I left Rein with my mom since it would take a long time and I know she'll get bored and the weather is getting colder. The results were ok! The doctor checked her head circumference, showed us her face, body, hands and feet. From the ultrasound it looks like his physical features were fine. The weight is around 300 grams which is perfect for his age. He was moving and kicking during the sonogram and decided to switch his position several times. The doctor tried to determine the gender and she said it's 80% boy. We'll be back on the 14th for our regular check-up and ultrasound and I am scheduled for another round of complete ultrasound on my 30th week. I really appreciate all the prayers and support. I'm so happy to have you all and you are making me strong with every words of encouragement you've said. I know that I should enjoy my pregnancy, but this thing is killing me. Don't get me wrong, I love every bit of it, I'm just scared and probably wonder what could be wrong. I stopped browsing the web about my situation to ease the anxiety.
BTW, All our favorite tv series are running again - Desperate Housewives, Amazing Race, Heroes, Prison Break and Dirty Sexy Money plus post-season MLB.
On other news:
A friend of mine told me that one of my page is on gallery inspiration for Memory Makers Blog. Check this out: MM Blogand and this one
I was contacted by another publishing company for my pages and I have a very exciting news for November. I was elated when I received the email and told hubby about it. It is still a secret but I'll let you know once it's finalized, it will be posted by November. Last weekend, I scrapped like mad and managed to create several pages. I hope to be able to post everything.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great week!
I'm still here :)
Hi everyone! It's been a loooong time. Finally got the chance to update my lil blog. A lot of things has been happening on my side of the world. Our lil munchkin is almost 18 weeks already. We've been going to the hospital for check-ups with my endoc and OB at least once every couple of weeks. On our last ultrasound, my OB told us that we will have an elective ultrasound on October 3 for a more comprehensive look at our baby. This is killing me since I have to wait for 2 more weeks and it feels like torture for me. They'll check baby for any defects or abnormalities. I'm hoping and praying that he/she is normal and healthy.
I just had a bad dream last night about my baby. I'm being paranoid and really pessimistic, I just won't be able to forgive myself if something is wrong especially because I am to blame. Please, please include us in your prayers :) My endoc added new oral meds for me. I went back and told her that I get dizzy and get tired easily, she said it's normal since the meds are helping me normalize my blood sugar. Right now, I'm still taking insulin shots 3X/day at 8 units each before meal and she adjusted my 12 units before bedtime to 8 units since I'm taking the oral meds. She said that I need a lot of rest and should not stress myself too much.
By the way, we witnessed a rather sad thing about a couple of weeks ago. When I was removing the clothes that were hanged at the veranda and Rein was watering the plants, she saw a woman who jumped off a building right across from ours. She was about 50 yrs old or so. I didn't see the exact fall but Rein said "fall down mama". When I saw her she was already on the street and a little later an ambulance came. Rein asked me "why?". I just told her she has a superpower and wings and she'll be okay. So we got inside for her not to see the police and the people there. It was devastating and I just said a short prayer for her. I wonder why she would do that.
My mom is back, Yipee!!! She got here last Thursday, she got delayed at the airport and the immigration officer called me to ask a lot of questions. This is because she just left Japan last August and came back just after a month. The officer told us that within a given calendar year, she couldn't stay longer in Japan than in her home country. And by now she has spent 7 of the last 9 months here in Japan but they understood my circumstance and said it's okay. On Digi scrappin': I got emails from several scrapbooking magazines (for print) that they are interested on my pages. I haven't told the designers about it yet, I know they will be delighted. I'm so happy that they want to publish my work, haven't really been active in digiland lately and this made me smile. After Five Designs is open already. Please be sure to check it out. All the kits are really gorgeous and worth the penny. I'm happy to be part of this team. Congrats to the new designers!!!! Almost all kits are on SALE right now!!!! Hurry! :)
