I’m blogging via my husband’s phone simply because:
1- I can’t sleep
2- my phone is charging
3- i tweeted a lot and decided before i pour out more there, why not here
4- i love this iphone’s smooth keypad so much it made me wanna blog mobile. (i usually use our computer to blog)
Well now I am at the last stage of pregnancy and at 36 + weeks, topics started to revolves around labor and birth plan. To be honest we talked mostly but zero execution. we havn’t wash the baby clothes, nor buy any new ones yet or the worst- pack the hospital bag. and the only thing I bought in preparation for this new baby is heavy duty mentsrual pad. i know, priorities, right?
if i have the money i would’ve bought them myself but financially everything is up to ted and his priorities is questionable now but what else can I say. all i can do now is pray that I dont have surprise labor (or least please let us pack a decent hospital bag before anything😭)
i dont really think we need to buy a whole bunch of stuff this time around but the essentials like a cot, baby diapers and ointment and nursing essentials. these, we gotta have because we don’t have any of these now. and a big fridge. but like i mentioned earlier- all we did was talk and no execution. (dont let your man plan, they will remain as plans)
physically- there is not a moment where i dont feel heavy and tired and aching all over but the best i can do now is to take things slow. heartburn came back so I guess i am back to eating plain food. I tweeted about how i forgot how it felt between stomach ache, braxton hicks or contraction and to haven to figure them out on my own is like sitting for a surprise test. trick is- if i got it wrong i may end up with a baby. however, i am also aware that i should not be gentle with my body. this last leg of the pregnancy is all about getting myself ready for labor and staying put will not help me. at some point i gotta walk a LOT, squat a LOT and all those she bang about natural labor inducer. the only reason why i avoid doing all those too much is because i gotta save some energy for my first kid. well, somebody has git to play with him, make food and feed him and you know change his diaper and bath and so on. if i push myself and becomes too tired, who can help me with those especially when the dad is at work?
but- i gotta give credit to my first born. He has been nothing but a supportive kid. giving kisses and hugs when i asked him to, even for his brother. didn’t throw much tantrums when he is just with me, take a nap when i asked him to especially when i told him i am tired and i need to catch a wink. I am very strict with him but he seems to understand that no one else is there to help me so i gotta listen to mommy. i hope when the baby arrives, he will feel overjoyed and ecstayic about having a new play mate! (omg i love these two so much already and the baby is not even here yet!)
i should really try to catch a quick sleep now before husband leaves for work. if not, i will not survive a day out tomorrow with my parents.
(it’s 5.14am now and im starting to feel hungry and most probably can’t sleep but welp, gotta try!)
