I’m in LOVE.
On Wednesday, we went to the doctor’s office and got to see Boram again! I love these pictures so much, he looks SO cute to me. I couldn’t resist the editing… He looks like he’s asking for a fist bump, only to be denied. Haha
It was so amazing, we saw him smiling and moving around. He is super active and growing really well. We are in the middle of our 25th week now and can’t believe how fast time is moving along.
I had my glucose test, they gave me a cup of liquid that was clear and syrup like. It was disgusting! Boram was spazzing out the whole time, kicking and moving around like crazy. I’m sure he was thinking “HEY MOM YOU NEVER GAVE ME THAT MUCH SUGAR…. WHAT DO I DO?? WHAT DO I DO????”. I didn’t get a choice of drink, like the orange drink that I hear about…. this drink was like… snot. HAHA (Sorry, I’ve been sick and that’s what it reminded me of)
Then about an hour later they tested my blood and it came back great! I don’t have gestational diabetes and everything came back normal. My doctor also measured my tummy size and she said that my tummy is small but perfectly healthy. Since the beginning of pregnancy, my weight gain has been 6lbs/2.7kg… Nurses say the weight gain is right on track!
I also found out at that appointment that I get a midwife too! We met her and I’m really excited that it’s included in our package. Plus we get free classes for prenatal, birth and classes for breastfeeding, baby care and how to bathe your baby. (and more!)
On a different note, I was talking to a friend the other day about my past abuse from my family. She asked if I would ever tell Boram about it or if I would hide it. I told her that I will tell him when he’s mature enough to understand. I have no idea when that will be but I won’t hide it. I will tell him why I am the mother he knows. Why I am… the way I am. And I hope that by sharing with him, he will also learn that abuse is never ok.
I feel a lot of healing as time is moving along. The more and more weeks I’m pregnant, I am hopeful and happy for our future. I am excited about becoming a mother, raising our children and having a family of my own! I feel Boram kicking me and I smile/laugh from the reassurance that he is always with me. I’m thankful for having a husband who is so involved and supportive before/during (and after) pregnancy. I don’t know what I would do if he wasn’t. He truly is the greatest husband in the whole world.
I can’t stop looking at these ultrasound pictures! He’s my SON!!! Ahhhh! Who will he look like? I can’t tell too much from the pictures but the nurses say his nose looks like daddy. They also say that the overall shape of his face looks like me. I guess we’ll have to wait until May to see!
And… some questions about those who are familiar with Hong Kong. We’re going at the end of the month, do you have any suggestions where to buy baby stuff? And what I should buy there? Thanks in advance.
Hope everyone is doing well! xo
