    my batchmates
    my pregnancy batchmates have already given birth! talk about getting anxious waiting, huh? and it doesn't help that my doctor said i won't be reaching my 40th week, he said that about 4 weeks ago and was very confident about it. he said my cervix was already short, although i read somewhere that your cervix may be just right for your built/size, so you'll only know when you didn't give birth early. the doctors are usually playing it safe when they say you should take it easy to avoid early delivery. so i guess what i read holds true in my case... i'm running my 39th week already! i was so looking forward to giving birth in may, but i guess my little tenant has other plans. oh, well! :)

    ... and who are my batchmates? well, it's just gwen estefani , angelina jolie and mira sorvino! we actually share the same EDD week... showbiz! :p

    our place... or at least a portion of it! :)
    <- here is where we live right now... can only show you this portion of our home, as hubby didn't feel like getting up from the couch to take photos of the other areas of our new home. so, from the boxes galore, we've made the place quite livable. :)

    scrapbook layout #2

    after about 5 months, i finally suddenly had the urge to do another scrapbook layout. and here it is! i (and hubby) think it's a lot better than my first attempt.

    i started and finished this layout just today. feels good! :)

    oh, by the way, these are still newborn pics of our first born, so i still have a LOT of catching up to do! :)

    37 weeks completed
    today, is officially my 37th week and 1 day of pregnancy... so pretty much anytime now is the day. in my first pregnancy, i completed exactly 36 weeks and yes, it was pre-term, but thank God everything was well and good. our first born boy is now a very active 2-yr-and-8-month old.

    my doctor said i won't be reaching 40 weeks of pregnancy, so it's really an exciting waiting game now plus my mom won't be around when i give birth... she'll be here by end of june (finally, and hopefully!), she still needs to finish a few things back home.

    by the way, my doctor also said he'll be on holidays from thrusday (25th) until saturday, so there's a big chance he won't be able to attend to me if i give birth next week... but i'm not really worried about that, there are other doctors on call who will attend to me, anyway.

    here's our latest picture... i've gained quite a lot of weight in this pregnancy, of course you've noticed! :)

    we're here!

    our personal effects were delivered april 21st, finally! that's 169 items altogether... about 130 boxes and the rest are the furnitures and other big items.
    after 2 and 1/2 months from the day they packed our things on feb. 3rd we were very anxious of our shipment's arrival... so we can begin the hard work of unpacking and arranging stuff.

    it's now 2 and 1/2 weeks since our shipment arrived and there's still a bit of work to do. we spent a lot of time attending to the kitchen stuff, i never realized i had so much kitchen paraphernalia! but looking at them now, i seem to want to get rid of a lot of things.... which i did! :) planning to get some new stuff again, heehee! :p

    the movers attended to assembling the dining table, lounge set and tv unit among others. they were not able to set-up the bed and the crib, they could not find the legs and the screws and bolts. now that's another work to do, and some more small stuff that were damaged during the shipment.

    hopefully, we'll get to fix the house very very soon, we don't want a lot of mess when the new addition arrives.

    pressure, pressure! :)
