Baby Watch 2009 - Day 11 (Anniversary)

It's our 5 year anniversary! Hubby brought home Sprinkles Cupcakes! He got pumpkin, strawberry, chocolate and cinnamon sugar! Baby decided to hang in there so she could eat Korean tofu w/ us instead of stressing through labor. What a smart little baby... :) We were too full to eat the cupcakes. So she probably won't come tomorrow either since she'll probably want some. :D

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 11 (Waiting)


A wall separates you and me,
You are happy where you be,
I'll keep waiting and longing to see,
My cute sweet little baby bunny...


I had a contraction last night and the great thing is I actually was excited to feel the pain. ;) I told babiest she could come whenever she wants. Today, the doctor said I was still only 2 cms but more effaced. Babiest just might want to be a July baby. ;) I'll be induced next week if she wants to come out within a week.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 10 (Sunshine)

I saw daylight! I guess I should have been taking walks before today. I decided to go for a walk around the community. It's quite nice and sunny outside. The sunshine and the walk made me happy and awake.

BTW - Baby isn't out yet. ;)

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 9

Ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch.

Made some chicken pot pie soup from this recipe I think I made dinner too early. Need to time it better.

Baby was dancing to music in the morning. She just moved now. Maybe she'll be a punctual little one and make her debut on the 25th? I hope I don't have to get induced. I'm starting to get anxious.

Just playing around w/ my wacom tablet:

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 8 (Monday again)

Slept until 10:50 a.m.! Sweet. First day I slept in. Days are longer when you don't watch tv! :) Yay. I need to give it up. I ate a mixed greens salad w/ raspberry vinaigrette and avocado. Yummy.

Swiffered the walls. The swiffer is a great invention. Washing the sheets and covers now. No contractions yet.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 7 (Father's Day)

Happy Father's Day to my hubbie, father and grandfather :D. I napped twice. Went to my father's and grandfather's to celebrate. It was fun. Watched Million Dollar Password for the first time. It was pretty good. ;) It was fun watching it w/ the family. My grandma made us really thick smoothies w/ her vitamix. We got home late at 9 p.m. Was hoping to sleep earlier. Baby looks as if she has dropped. My stomach looks more narrow.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 6 (Party/Naps)

No pictures today. But napped in the morning and at night after the engagement party. Last night I was so tired and I was thinking please please not tonight I don't think I'll have the energy to push. ;)

So I tried to conserve my energy today. I feel refreshed now after my night nap and shower. ;D

I think I felt a contraction last night at 1:30 a.m. It did feel like a cramp but all over my belly.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 5 (Hanging out day)

Made myself some french toast for lunch. ;) Yummy. Reminded me of childhood only this time I used a recipe. When we were younger we made french toast by putting eggs, sugar and soy sauce together. Mushy thinks it was gross but I had fond memories of it. :D

Today I relaxed mostly. Read a baby book. Hung out w/mushy meadows. We just watched reality tv shows and talked during commericals. When hubbie came home, we talked and ate pizza. Yums.

In labor news: I think I just had another sign of labor occur ( #3. No contractions yet though.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 4 (Crafty Day)

Ribbit ribbit! I made a froggy for a friend's engagement party on Sat. Wonder if I'll make it to the party. I'm already 2 cm dilated and baby has been quite active today.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 3 (Lazy Day)

The lazy day...

I read some baby books, napped, washed 2 loads of laundry, watched t.v and just cleaned up the fireplace mantel (took down Christmas themed decorations ;)).

I'm really trying to read more about taking care of baby before she comes.

Days seem short even while lounging at home.

Reading makes me sleepy.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 2 (Cooking Day)

The good: Watched a lamaze video, tried practicing pushing and breathing. Roasted a chicken, made rice, sesame peanut noodles. Cleaned the bathrooms.

The bad: More tube watching. But I watched baby story, chopped & birth day. Birth day on T.L.C is pretty interesting and has medical comments about the birthing process.

Currently I'm pretty sleepy. *yawn* Baby is still here in my belly. She likes kicking my left hip bone. :D

Baby Watch 2009 Begins - Day 1 (Cleaning day)

Today was my first day of maternity leave. Baby is due in 10 days. Doctor said she should be here by her due date.

So I'm trying to clean up and prepare for her.

Good: Cleaned out the fridge (washed all the shelves), mopped the floors, did 2 loads of laundry one for baby and one for the floor coverings. I also napped a bit. Made myself a fried egg sandwich. Went out w/ the hubbie to give 5 bags of clothing to GoodWill. Yay. Clean sweep. ;)

Bad: Watched Choppped, Property Virgins, Birth Day, Jon and Kate and some dubbed Korean dramas.

I'll be posting my little adventures at home here until she arrives. So if I don't post you know where I am. ;)
