Sleeping late

My baby is awake when it's time for me to bed but I enjoyed feeling the movement of my tummy when the baby moves which made me sleep late. I told the practitioner about it and she told me to take a nap as much as possible whenever I have the chance coz I should be sleeping 8 to 12 hours a day. Wow, that's a lot of hours! I was surprised hearing what the practitioner said but she told me not to feel guilty about it coz there's a baby inside me growing so I need to have a lot of rest. I don't know if I can do 12 hours but I'll try to get 8 hrs of sleep if possible. :)

My baby is now moving everyday

Last August I felt that my baby was moving while I'm about to sleep then I felt the baby moving again after a few days. The practitioner asked me during my last visit if I felt the baby moving and I said yes but not everyday then she said that I'll be able to feel the baby moving everyday when I'm 20-22 weeks pregnant. I'm 19 weeks yesterday but last Saturday I felt the baby moving until today. I guess my case is different though this is my first time coz according to the book that I read that slender woman can feel the baby moving early and I am still skinny. I wonder what my baby is doing inside my tummy coz the baby moves to every corner of my tummy. Hubby said that maybe the baby is pushing my tummy out to have more room inside coz I can feel that the baby is pushing my tummy. haha It feels good sometimes coz it's like the baby is kicking my tummy but sometimes there's a little pain which made me think if the baby is playing with the umbilical cord or pinching something. :)

I'm bored

It's my mother-in-law who said that she's bored when hubby and I visited her. Hubby told her to join with the other residents playing bingo or going out and have fun but it seems that she want us to entertain her. Hmm When she was in Florida she complained that she's the only one there who doesn't have a visitor but of course we're far and visiting her is expensive so we visit her once a year. She didn't talk about it though when hubby told her that hubby can't visit her all the time because his vacation is limited and he needs to keep his job. Now that we visit her every weekend, she suggest that we should visit her often. I don't know how often she wants us to visit but going there everyday is I think too much.

Hearing about financial disasters/problems/suicides with the tough economy today made me think of how I can avoid to not have the problems that others are facing. Oprah's show actually helped a lot of people to change their spending habits and starts saving with the help of Suze Orman's tough love advice/help. I learned from Suze's advice and even Oprah too. So now I'm more serious when it comes to spending and tracking everything. Though I'm not used to budget with the credit card coz it's really a big temptation but I'll try doing it coz using the credit card company we use will give us money in return also which is good for us. Having a list of how much we spent is a big challenge and it seems fun to me. I enjoyed writing down the expenses and I'm thrilled if this will really work. Maybe not this month but hoping to meet the goal next month. :)

I'm getting bigger?

I wasn't really planning to go shopping yesterday but Victoria's Secret sent me a coupon that I have a freebie. Hubby told me that I don't need to go there coz I complained that I don't like the VS freebie that I got but free stuff is good so I went there with hubby before the coupon expire. Besides, if I don't use the free VS thing then I can give it away to somebody who's willing to accept it like my relatives in the Philippines. -_^

Anyways, I passed by with other stores before going to Victoria's Secret boutique and bought some clothes that I can use or will use once my tummy gets bigger. I noticed that my size now is medium and not small anymore. Hmm I wonder what my biggest size is before I deliver the baby. :)

Freebie for baby

Hubby and I visited my mother-in-law and she asked me of how's the baby and I said that the baby is okay and starts moving already. She was surprised coz she said hubby was so good to her and didn't gave her any problems. I think she was thinking that I'm in pain already when the baby moves. Anyways, she said that she will buy the crib for the baby and hubby said that we're still looking for one but haven't decided yet. A friend of mine suggests to buy the wooden crib but hubby thinks the folding crib is more practical for us so we can bring it anywhere in the house. Free stuff is good. :)

Package from Philippines

At last, the package I was waiting for arrived already. I asked my sister to send me something that I was craving and my cousin also sent me something. Too bad the galleta smells bad already. But the peanut brittle really taste so good. :)

Crime Scene Live

Today hubby and I witnessed a crime scene at the parking lot here in our apartment. There were 3 Police cars at the back parking lot, 3 Police cars at the front parking lot and HEMSI. Wow! It seems like we're watching a movie. Our neighbors also were watching from a distance and some tried to go a little closer. It takes hours before the parking lot was clear because of the paper works, taking pictures of the area where the crime scene happened, signing papers from the witnesses and etc. The complete story in my other blog My Small World.

OB Appointment

Today we heard just a little bit of the baby's heart beat. The practitioner said that the baby kept moving around but we heard a little bit of the heart beat. The practitioner also said that there are babies who doesn't like the apparatus used for listening the heart beat and maybe my baby is one of them. Hmm It also took a few minutes before my OB found the heart beat. It seems like my baby wants to play hide and seek already. haha
