18th Week: Random Thoughts

Zara is as big as a sweet potato by now. An 8.5 inch one. Had my first pelvic ultrasound today.  There’s Zara / Zorro’s face! Can you see her/his cute button-like nose? And those lips! I think our baby got those lips from Daddy C. 😍


So after my cooking addiction, I suddenly don’t feel like eating what I’ve cooked. It’s like everything tastes the same.  So one time, for lunch, I ordered Jollibee “palabok.” πŸ˜‹ Plus a bacon cheese burger. πŸ” 

Tonight, for dinner after my check up, had one order of maki all for myself πŸ™‚ My husband had a bowl of chirashi which I didn’t / am not allowed to taste. When I give birth, sashimi will definitely one of the first few things I’ll eat πŸ€—

I eat not so healthy stuff like burger, but in moderation.  I should try my best to do away with unhealthy food… and have more veggies and 🍌 fruits.


Speaking of addiction, I had another one these past two days – “window-shopping” on Instagram for wooden toys, especially for girls. 

Look at this lovely mini kitchen set!

And this dainty picnic basket! 😍
I browsed through decals for Baby Z’s room too πŸ™‚ 

I had to stop.  Really. 


Too much of everything is bad.  But if there’s one addiction that’s definitely beneficial to us especially our souls, it is time of prayer and reading God’s Word. (Sorry, Lord, that I spent so much time in other things…)

These days I’ve been reading Psalms. Spent some time in reading Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible. And it just took me 11 minutes to finish the chapter!  This chapter tells about the Bible having all that we ever need, whatever season in life we are going through. Amazing how much can be gained in 11 minutes of reading God’s Word.


Had a time of reflection on God’s goodness in our lives the past year.  We thank and praise God for He answers prayers. Not only our prayers, but prayers of family, friends, and even other people / friends who we didn’t know have been praying for us too! People we don’t even thought of praying for. It is just so humbling and overwhelming to see people being truly happy for us and hearing them say they’ve been praying for us. Moving forward, I should pray for them in my heart immediately after they greet us congratulations so I can make sure I pray for each of them. For now, I just have to rely on my memory and remember them in my own time of prayer.

Thank you, Lord, for all the family, relatives and friends who prayed for us to have a baby.  May you be the one to bless them according to your purposes.

As early as now, Zara / Zorro has been receiving thoughtful gifts πŸ™‚ 

Jollibee! (The planner is mine πŸ™‚ )

Soft and fluffy blankets! 😍

Thank you from Zara / Zorro! Hugs! πŸ€—
