 Just a quick update:
Got back from my 32 week check up: Baby heartbeat 148/minute, the head is down(correct and perfect position). My weight is 155 lbs (up 6 lbs since 3 weeks ago). Brother Mike is not concerned with my weight gain, said all is normal. (he said since I can't be on diet, it really doesn't matter)!!

Asked about induction, he said we will do a high-level sonogram later which will determine the baby's weight and then decide when to induce. He said the ideal baby's weight should be in the 7 lb range, not in the 8 lb range.. haha we will see about that. Jacob was 8 lb 3 oz and Timothy was 8 lb 14 oz at birth.. This one will surely be as heavy as her brothers!!

Also asked about Melody being present and Philip video-taping the process. Of course brother Mike said it's ok... he will agree to anything I request I think!!

Asked about epidural.. he said epidurals are much better now a days and I can still move around and be very concious and alert... good to know.

That's about it!!
Next check up will be in 2 weeks(6/12 at 9am).

Well, as the weeks went by, I am getting bigger and bigger. I don't like to stand on the scale anymore because everytime I do, there is weight gain. Actually comparing to last time, I am doing pretty well, but I just don't understand why... I am not eating more, I sill exercise, and no matter what I do, my body gains weight (like it has its own mind). I blame it mostly to water retention since I am swollen in my legs, feet, and even fingers by the end of the day. In an hour I am going in for my 31 week checkup... I wonder what brother Mike will say about the weight gain and I am going to ask him when to set up an induction date... in about 8 weeks or less our little princess will make her debut. I can't wait!!

Jacob started his level 2 swimming lesson yesterday morning. The teachers seems pretty good because Jacob was pretty cooperative and was willing to try floating on his back instantly. There were only 3 kids in his class and one bigger boy didn't even want to put his head into the water, I think he would have to go back to level 1 for some basics... that leaves 2 kids in Jacob's class.. which is great because it's actually semi-private lesson with a group class rate.

Yesterday at yoga class I realized I couldn't do most of the poses anymore... sunside rotation is really hard now because the tummy is in the way.. and I miss all the inversion poses.. but I still tried to do as much as I can. Maybe I should stop yoga and start swimming instead.

Yesterday was 端午節 in Taiwan. I really like to eat some yummy 粽子, so I ask my mom to make some this Saturday. This is why I miss Taiwan so much, so many good foods to eat.

The boys enjoy each other at home. But once in a while they would offend each other. But I can tell they have a lot of fun being together. I am truly glad they are so close in age and can be each other's companion. As for Acacia, I think sometimes she will feel lonely being the only girl and so much younger than her brothers, but she should enjoy her 2 noisy and rough brother as well. Can't wait to see how they 3 interact with each other.

I've been watching "baby story" on TV, everytime I see a baby emerging into the world I would cry. Such a miracle. This time I hope I will feel more actively involved with the whole labor and birth process. I get Braxton Hicks everyday now. My body is starting to prepare for the birthing. It's weird I don't have control over my body. It does its own things... I just have to go with the flow

Today is the 1st day of summer vacation for Jacob. I have 2 boys at home now all time with me. I am happy to have Jacob at home with Timothy so Timothy doesn't come and tell me he is bored every 2 minutes!! And my big boy has graduated from Kindergarten... what a big achievement! I can't believe my son is entering 1st grade so soon... time surely flies! He did GREAT for his year at MST, made some good friends and luckily met a teacher(Mrs. Huggins) he really liked. Such a good start for him!

We've been going to swimming about 3 times a week at lifetime fitness. We sometimes run into Isaac(church kid), or Daven(Jacob's classmate). The boys enjoy the water very much, they ask to go swimming almost everyday, but going everyday takes a lot of energy.. which is what I am lacking now a days. But now we are all at home all times I might start taking them swimming more often to "kill time".

As for me, my tummy(or my baby) is getting bigger each day. I look like I am about to pop everyday, but I actually have 2 more months to go! On one hand I can't wait to see my baby girl, but on the other hand, I am enjoying this last pregnancy so much(well, despite all the aches and pains), I treasure each fetal movements, all her kicking and rolling and punching !!! It's such an amazing feeling to feel my baby in my body. It's like transformation that takes place. And I am supplying all her needs. We all need to do the same for our transformation in spirit, taking the Lord for all our supply and grow by eating and drinking Christ!! Oh Lord Jesus transform me with your life and nature! ok I will include a picture of my huge tummy. ha!


Next Wed I am going in for my 31 week prenatal check up. After that it will be every 2 weeks then soon it will be weekly visits. I am now 155 lbs.... yikes... I feel like a BIG whale, but I know it's mostly due to swelling(water retention) and hopefully this time after having the baby I will trim down faster then last time. I still go to my yoga practices. I love it very much, it makes me stretch and build strength and energy. Yesterday in the middle of the class the instructor came to me and shook my hand saying "are you ok? You look absolutely beautiful". I know she must be impressed with me going to her yoga class with such a big tummy. The pregnant moms I saw in my previous class had already stopped coming at this stage of the game. But I want to try to go as long as I can. Of course now I am very limited to poses, but about 80% of the poses are still good for me and I believe by keeping at yoga it will help me greatly in labor, delivery and recovery after the baby. Next Wed at my checkup I am going to ask Michael when to set up induction date/time. I am thinking 7/28.. a Friday which will be great for Philip because he gets the weekend without taking days off.

sister Melody will probably join me in the delivery room. At the begining I wasn't sure how comfortable I would be with a non-family member with me, but gradually I think it will be a good idea. She IS indeed a family of mine.. a dear sister and I am sure she will provide lots of support during the birth of our baby. And the best part is that Philip will be free to videotape the whole process.. which was something he couldn't do when Timothy was born because he had to hold my leg and coach me through the whole time. I hope Melody won't be scared with all the bloody show... but since she watched "baby story" and "special deliveries" on TV, she should be somewhat prepared...

This Tuesday Timothy went to have his teeth cleaned. I was VERY proud of him. He was so brave through the whole thing, didn't cry a bit and was not nervous at all... of course I've been trying to pump him up for the idea for a while, but I wasn't sure if it really worked and it surely did. He even let them take x-rays of his teeth.. and I know how uncomfortable it must have been. The dentist was VERY happy that Timothy has 0 cavity. YAY!!! I hope he continues to have good teeth through out the years to come. Of course I've learnt my lesson and try to take care of their teeth as best as I can. Anyway, I am very proud of my little boy.

I am starting the "nesting" process... cleaning baby's stuff a little each day. Today I washed the diaper covers and now they are being "sun-dried" in our side yard. It's exciting to wash baby clothes everytime, knowing their owner will soon be here to claim her things.

Today the satellite people will come to install "dish network" satellite for us. I am very excited! The Chinses program we've been watching can only be summed up with one word , very very poor quality. And all the money we've been paying for this poor programming . Now with Dish network the kids can have some better choices, like disney, discovery channel, noggins... and of course I get to watch my favorite shows like "baby stories", and HGTV shows. And it's a pretty good deal actually, $29.99 for the first 10 months, then $39.99 for the remaining 8 months. It's even cheaper then ETTV we are paying for now.

 It was Mother's day yesterday and I sure had a good one. The boys and their daddy went to swimming on Saturday afternoon and went to Sams to get me some flowers(light purple 菊花). The boys picked the flowers so I didn't complain they were not Carnatians. Yesterday Philip went to pick up Tabo from Denton because she will fly back to Taiwan on Wednesday and finish her study here in the US. We all went to Cheesecake Factory for dinner. We had to wait about 45 minutes but we were at Barnes and Noble reading books so it wasn't too bad. As usual the food was great and we also had a piece of Tarimasu cheesecake. Very yummy. The boys kept telling me happy mother's day so I enjoyed being pampered as a mommy. And soon we will have another child joining our family. Can't wait for my 3 children to say "happy mother's day" to me in the near future!

After dinner we went to Central market to buy some stuff Tabo is taking back to Taiwan. Using a coupon I got 5 pretty long-stem roses for free. Three pink and 2 white. They look very nice. I have plenty of flowers for my mother's day!

On Saturday we went to Lowers for our kids project(made woodbarrels, the boys loved it)


after that we went to Dallas zoo. It was a nice day, we had picnic there in their new picnic area. We also took the monorail train to see the African animals. It was getting hot and we decided to go home after that.  Then mommy went to take a nap and daddy took the boys to swim... Thank you daddy for taking care of the boys so mommy could rest!!

 This is probably the best time of the year in Texas. The weather is great, not too hot, and with some breeze, it makes me just want to crawl in bed and take a LONG nap!


Last Wed. I went into Jacob's classroom to sub for the teacher, I mainly watched the kids when they had lunch and when they rested on the floor... well, not many of them rested because they were all so excited to have Timothy in their room and Timothy surely put on a show to make everyone laugh(by doing silly stuff). Timothy enjoyed eating lunch with the big kids!!


Last Friday Philip went to the doctor's office for his vasectamy operation. It only took the doctor less then 20 minutes to do it. And I was very proud of my dear husband to do this for me and our family. Now I can honestly say we've both done our shares. Very very fair.

I went in for my 28 weeks prenatal visit this morning, as usual, my tummy is measureing big(31 weeks) but bro. Mike said since it's consistantly big, it's ok. Baby's heart beat was 159, My blood pressure was like 59/90, so perfect. And I don't have blood sugar problem at all, my level from the test showed I am very normal. Of course I complained about the aches and pains on my lower back and left bottom shooting down the leg, Mike was very sympathetic but said there is nothing we can do, it's all part of the pregnancy symptoms. I will go in agin in 3 weeks(after memorial weekend) on the 31st. Then it will be bi-monthly visits I think. After my short visit with Mike I went to tour the Labor and Delivery ward. It was very nice, I saw a mommy laboring in one of the rooms, and the familiar sounds of the baby's heartbeat monitor, making me realize very soon I will be laying on the bed, waiting for my baby to come out. The L&D rooms are bigger then the one I had in Baylor Richardson hospital, and the nurses seem to be VERY nice, the one that showed me around was very kind and warm.  I think it will be a very positive experience again.

Our front door( screen door) is complete, thanks to brother Eric's help and Philip's hard work. Saved us about $150 if we had to have professionals to install it. Now we can always open the screen window and enjoy the light and breeze. So nice!

Last Friday we had our home meeting at Eric and Ellie's. She made roast beef and it was so yummy... I ate a lot and was so full ! I've heard beef makes the baby grow and gain weight, I hope baby Acacia also enjoyed the yummy beef !

Once the weather starts to get warmer I will take the boys swimming in our club. We will all be very tanned and dark, but we all love water! Last Saturday becuase I was not feeling well(ate too much watermelon), so Philip took the boys to meet with the architect so I could rest, but unfortunately, the architect has a cat in his house(although they didn't see it), Jacob had a pretty bad allergy, all his face is swollen and itchy and eyes were red and swollen and watery. Poor boy! Daddy took him home and I gave him Benedryl, but he didn't completely heal until Sunday night. We have to be more careful when going to people's houses now. I surely hope Acacia doesn't have this kind of allergy like her big brother Jacob.

Saturday was Home Depot kids project time, daddy helped the boys build 2 beautiful flower pot holders!!

Time surely flies. It's already May.  Today I am 27 weeks pregnant, almost 7 months. I am expecting to be induced 1 or 2 weeks earlier than my due date, so I count there should be 11. 12 weeks most left.

Baby is surely getting stronger each day. Sometimes her feet are in my ribs!

                                        

  
We went to the Dallas Aboretum(植物園) last Saturday. It was very pretty and nice. We had a great time. Jacob even saw his classmate Sarah. We took lots of pictures, but soon the clouds came and it started to rain so we had to return to the van and leave. We were thinking of going to the zoo afterwards but since it was raining and we were all a little tired from all the walking. we decided to go to the North Park Mall instead. We shopped and I bought some clothes for Jacob from Gymboree, good prices, clothes for the fall. We ate slices of Tarimassu and  chocolate cake(La Madeline) and Jacob hurt his knee from trying to climb the fountain in the mall... so we had a crying big boy.
       






We had to eat dinner pretty quickly because we were going to Hu Xin's house for the small group meeting. We haven't been meeting with group 3 saints for a year now but we wanted to visit Hu's new house. They bought a townhouse in Allen, so far to drive to, but we had a good meeting and the kids all had fun. I am glad the Lord has prepared a home for Hu and her family. She surely has gone through a lot during the past years and now they are finally settling down. May the Lord save her husband and her mother.

Jacob brought a sun flower painting for his teacher yesterday. It is Teacher's appreciation week this week and we thought maybe it would be nice to give Mrs. Huggins a gift.

Tomorrow I will be subtituting in Jacob's class from 11:30 - 1pm so the teachers can go and have lunch together. I enjoy volunteer for Jacob's school activties so he feels I am actively involved in his school.
