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':
