31st Week: Not by Bread Alone

“Man does not live by bread alone…” Finished reading the Old Testament and I’m at the first part of the Book of Matthew now.  Jesus’ reply on Satan’s temptation for Him to turn stones into bread somehow stuck on me as I read it. It doesn’t seem major –  I’ve been struggling with my seemingly…

30th Week: Moving Mountains

River’s been so active that there were a few times I would wake up in the wee hours of the morning, then couldn’t get myself to go back to sleep anymore, because he was moving too much.  Or rolling like a wave inside me.  He’s been doing a lot of somersaults and poking here and there,…

29th Week: Counting Kicks

How’s River? According to What to Expect App, starting past the 28th weeks, I should be counting River’s kicks.  My OB did mention something like that before, but did not give specific instructions.  I have yet to see my OB.  Last time we saw her said that she’ll be the one to tell me when…

28th Week: Hello, Third Trimester!

Praise God for another milestone. I’m learning to depend all the more on Him, daily, weekly, monthly.  Every trimester.

In the morning, I spent time playing with my baby nephews. Read “The Wheels on the Bus” to my almost 2 year old nephew and since he already knows the…

22nd Week: On baby stuff + more vitamins

Learned from “What to Expect” app that I might start to notice my feet getting bigger at this point. A reason to buy new shoes? 🙂 thinking about the black slip on lightweight shoes as an alternate to the white sneakers I bought recently…😍 But then I think about the baby stuff that I can…

21st Week: Online discoveries & more

Learned that during the 21st week, River starts to taste what I eat through the amniotic fluid.  I’ve been more conscious of what I eat now, making sure I have fruits and veggies.  I love putting yogurt on my fruits :). I have to train him as early as now to love fruits and veggies….

20th Week: What’s in a Name?

I am halfway through my pregnancy in the week of this year’s Chinese New Year celebration! (Our first baby will be born in the year of the rooster.) So grateful to the Lord for this milestone. On January 18 – I forgot to note this for my 19th week post – I felt the baby…
