Preparing Baby's Room, Baby's Shower and Hubby's B'day

This and next week are busy week because I kinda have a lot of activities
from decorating the baby's room, preparing baby's shower and preparing surprise for hubby's B'day.
Still looking for the nursery themes...hmmm...either classic winnie the pooh, games, colorful tutty fruity. Wall paper is automatically out because no man power to do it hehe...perhaps some wall stickers or hand made stickers.
Baby's shower preparation more or less done just a little bit here and there for the details
Well, at least there's interesting activities here...

Week 29

Another pose of wedding...well this July - August is full of wedding and party almost every weekend and I must enjoy it now before staying home and taking care my baby full time..

This week, my fatigue also comes back. It's more tiring now when I am cleaning the house or sitting for 2 hours.
The bright side is I feel the baby's movements more frequently and it really makes me peace of mind...eventhough sometimes I couldn't sleep well at night 'cos of his active movement. I give thanks to God 'cos this movement means that my baby is alive and healthy :)

Welcome my last trimester

This picture was taken during my CGW mate wedding when I was 7th month

Buying Baby's Stuffs compose mode is back...eventhough still not perfect yet :(

Just few updates
We went back Indonesia 10 days ago to buy baby's stuffs. It's so exciting and we spent close to S$1K. It's worth it though because when we compared the prices in Singapore, we may spend double than what we spent in Indonesia

Well, we still left with some things like baby soap, detergent, pampers etc perhaps spend another S$100
Oh ya when I came back from Indonesia, I almost stucked in Airport because my pregnancy was 7 months. Luckily, my tummy was not so big and the check in counter was so nice and written down in the declaration form that my pregnancy was 6 months.

Praise God, we landed safely in Singapore with 35 kg luggages + 14 kg hand carry bags hehe...

Baby oh Baby ....

We went to see the doctor just now for regular check up before my travelling tomorrow.
The baby is doing well eventhough the weight is a little bit below the average.
It's supposed to be around 1kg, but my little one is only 937 g.
And I just gain 1 kg so far from 3 weeks ago, so adding up 7.5 kg in total before my pregnancy

Well, I must put some efforts to eat more while I am in Jakarta hehe...eventhough now I am craving more on western food and cheesy food

Song of the week

Two Hands One Heart
by Don Moen
What can I give, what can I bring
that would be pleasing to my King
I'll give my heart not just a part
I'll lifting up my everything
Well it's all I have to offer
And it's all I have to give
Reff :
Two hands one heart
One life to offer you
Two hands one heart
that's what I give to you
Use me today, I know You can
Lord I surrender to Your plan
You made this heart, You made these hand
Take me and use me as I am
well it's all I have to offer
And it's all I have to give
Bridge :
Little becomes a lot
When it's in in Your hands
take me and make me more like You
Well it may not seem like much
But the Master's touch
I know that I'll be more like You

The Last Week of 2nd Trimester - Week 27

My pregnancy is coming to week 27, the last week for 2nd trimester
I gain weight 7.5 - 8 kg so far from the day before my pregnancy (58.5 - 59kg)
I guess it's because I ate a lot over the weekend hehe...2 portions and more from what my hubby ate :P

And I have been walking a lot during my weekend shopping therefore my leg now is a bit swelling....I must take a lot of rest now otherwise my leg becomes elephant leg :p
So far everything going smoothly and my baby inside is moving regularly...but my mood is swinging up and down *sigh* hopefully it's just temporary.

I will be seeing doctor before my trip this coming weekend to make sure that my baby is alright and I am fit for travelling

Happy 1st Anniversary Celebration

Finally we celebrated our first anniversay in humbly and simple way @ Ichiban Sushi and @ home with my pregnancy is on 27 weeks

Moving - moving and moving

This is the time that I feel his active movements pretty much at my tummy
He starts moving around 6am in the morning and wakes me up hehe...and moving around until about 9 am. Sometimes during lunch time, he also does movement.
Then in the afternoon, he starts moving again from 4 - 6pm. At night he exercises again sometimes as early as 9 pm or as late as 11 pm.

Now, it's still manageble. I still can sleep tightly at night and wake up fresh in the morning
Heard from other people, the movement becomes intense and painful when my pregnancy reaches 8 months onwards
Will see then....

I really enjoy my pregnancy and when I feel his movement, he makes me smile as if he asks me to play with him hehe... During this time, I feel much more happier and like to laugh.
Can't wait to see him in this world...

Our First Anniversary 05/07/09

Fifth of July is our first anniversary but it seemed everything went beyond our plan
We fell sick last week and throughout the weekend
We planned to attend the seminar "Wanita Diberkati dan Pria Sejati Katolik" (Blessed Women and Catholic Gentlemen) over the weekend to remind and enrich ourselves for going through another year in our marriage life but it came out differently from our plan.
We couldn't attend fully and only attended on Sunday

Then, we also planned to have nice dinner on Sunday eventhough I didn't know where he will bring me in but we decided to postpone our plan next Sunday since both of us were not feeling well and couldn't taste the food.

Above all of this, I still give thanks to God for His guidance, care and love, blessings to us for this one year.
He poured us with uncounted blessings beyond our thought and plan even He placed us the fruit of love in my womb which will be dued this coming October
And I was blessed to get this verse during the seminar yesterday and also this morning when I read the bible

" No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I with Moses, so I will be with you, I will never leave you nor forsake you" Joshua 1:5

" I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I promised to you " Genesis 28 : 15

This is the promise that God gave me for a year ahead since I don't know what His plan for us

B'rikanku Hati - Franky Sihombing

B'rikanku Hati
B'rikanku hati s'perti hati Mu
yang penuh dengan belas kasihan
B'rikanku mata s'perti mata Mu
memandang tuaian di sekelilingku
B'rikanku tanganMu 'tuk melakukan tugasku
B'rikanku kakiMu melangkah dalam rencana Mu
B'rikanku, b'rikanku, b'rikanku hati Mu
