 Well the day is finally here. Today afternoon we will go into the hospital to get ready for the birth of Acacia. I can't believe after 9 long months of waiting this day will really get here. I couldn't sleep just now... well I did sleep for about 2.5 hours... but I had to get up and post a diary before I have the baby.

Everything is in plan now. This morning we will go to the Lord's day meeting as usual and I am sure tons of saints will ask us when... and we will be able to say: "today!!". How exciting!! After the meeting Philip will go to Costco to do some grocery shopping, and I will take the boys to Target to get some last minute things(I also want to buy the toys that "Acacia will give them" when they come to the hospital to see their little sister, but how I am going to hide the toys will be a big challenge!!). Then we will go home and mom will prepare all the day 1 and day 2 postpartum drinks for me so on Monday we will be all ready. Then we need to eat a quick supper and arrive at the hospital by 5pm. Philip plans to take the boys along so they get to see where mommy will be staying for the next 3 days and nights.

I feel so sad leaving the boys at home. I am going to miss them terribly. Hopefully they will get to visit us very often at the hospital and get to know their baby sister before we take her home.

Since about Wednesday I've been having a new external hemorrhoid. It's a Texas size one.  It hurts so much I can't imagine what it will become after all the pushing during birthing. I've tried everything... medicated cream from Taiwan, Preparation H, Pads, warm/hot water, pain relieve medicine, and ice packs.. the only thing that work a little are pain medicine and ice packs. I am determined to get rid of these monsters after I have the baby... maybe will have to wait a few months before I can go have them treated. For my 2 previous pregnancies I never had to deal with them until after I had the babies. I guess getting older did something to me this time around.

On Monday morning Cherie will pick up the boys and take them back to her house to play with her girls. So mom can come to the hospital to be with me and watch her granddaughter being born. The boys will have a lot of fun playing with the girls and don't have to sit in the house all day long waiting for mommy to have their little sister. I am glad mom will come watch Acacia being born because it's such a life miracle and she is my last baby.

Yesterday we finally mailed out the application for naturalization to become citizens of the US. We went to several places to get Philip's photo printed and finally found Kinko's the best price. We mailed out the package, then came home later and realized the fee has changed to $330 instead of $320 per person. Oh well. We will just have to wait for the office to ask us to send in more payment I guess. It's neat that if Acacia is born on 7 /24... it will be exactly 5 years since we got our greencards. What a meaningful date for us. And tomorrow our household will have 3 little US citizens. I want to make sure they all know their source though, that we are Chinese in our blood... but the most importantly, they are God's children.

May the Lord bless my labor and delivery and we will have a healthy baby girl to love and hold soon!

So we have a date. On Sunday 7/23 I will go to Baylor Garland hospital to start inducing. The time is 5:30pm, and I should be there at about 5pm with all my bags and stuff. On Sunday night after I check in they will put medication in my cervix to start softening it up and starts the dialation process, and on Monday morning I will probably start having pitocin if labor hasn't picked up fast enough.

It's so good to finally get a date. Now I know when Acacia is coming I can really start preparing mentally. So I have about a week before I see our little girl.

This morning when I went to my last OB visit, I weighed about the same(or gained about 1 pound) as last week. My BP was 110/70, perfect as usual. Brother Mike did an internal exam and said I am about 2 cms dialated. I asked him if we can set a date and he said I will have to go take another sonogram for size of the baby... I really did't want to because I already went 3 times and had to spend $20 each time copay. After the sonogram Dr. Graham & brother Mike decided I will be induced on Monday, and I will go into the hopspital on Sunday afternoon. Mike asked me again this morning what happened to my last labor, I told him because Timothy was so big I had a 4th degree tear. And he shook his head and said no we don't want this baby to be that big again. So that's the whole point of induction. Hopefully it will be a much easier delivery for me. I surely hope so too because I totally remember the pain I had from the tear last time.

At the sonogram Dr. Graham showed me the hair on baby's head. He said lots of hair and it's funny to see hair floating in the water. almost like little grass waving in the wind.

Philip will go buy the Taiwan rice wine in downtown Dallas. I asked for a discount because we will buy a dozen. It's still quite expensive. But this is the kind that doesn't have any salt and directly imported from Taiwan so it should be better. This is the same kind that I used both times with my boys. Sister Li-ling used to buy them for me since it's close to her work but this time we feel it's better that Philip go pick them up so we don't bother Liling too much because these glass bottles are heavy.

I taught Michelle her last piano lesson yesterday and it won't resume until at least 1 month after the baby. She has been a brillent student, learning so fast and it was easy to teach her.

I also bought
Mustela Post Partum Body Restructuring Gel on line from ebay. It's much cheaper. Hopefully it will help my tummy go back to it's normal size and shape. I think we are about ready for everything that I and the baby will need. Now just the last few days of waiting.

I have 2 wonderful kids. They played by themselves happily and let me take a 2 hour nap. In between my long nap, I did hear them getting on each other's nerve and some arguments and crying, but they were so nice they didn't come into the room. They just figured out ways to solve problems and continue playing together. I am SO relieved. I think when Acacia is born we will be able to get the rest we need now the boys are so good entertaining themselves.

Today we didn't go out of the house at all. It's just too hot to get out there... Timothy after lunch asked if he could do homework, I was surprised but stayed calm and said, "sure" ! and he was excited. He finished reading a small book and writing his math very fast and Jacob also did his homework very efficiently. I am starting to think I really have 2 angels at home.

People are starting to call and ask if I've delivered yet. I myself am getting curious when I will actually deliver the baby. It's such a waiting game, with no answer and each day I wonder if contractions will start. I am really not in a hurry now anymore. I enjoy the time with my 2 boys and am kind of scared of the busy and tiring days to come following Acacia's arrival.

My tummy has definitely dropped some. It's really sitting on my thighs when I sit... and it looks smaller for some reason. Acacia's movements also slowed down a little. I think she is very crowded in there. I've already packed the hopital bag.. actually I don't have too much stuff in there.. just some clothes and toiletry. Since we live so close to the hospital I can always ask Philip to come home and get me stuff if I need.

Jacob keeps saying he wants to know what Acacia looks like.. me too!!  The 3rd child should probably be more of a mix of both sides I think. I think she is going to have a chubby face just like her 2 brothers.

 Last night starting at 8pm I started to have stomache pain... they were not contractions for the 1st 2 hours or so because they had no break in between and I was sure it's something I ate for dinner(probably 苦瓜), by the time Philip got home from school at around 10pm, I think contractions started to come... of course in bewteen I had vomitted and also 拉肚子 several times... VERY uncomfortable. When I realized they were contraction pains I started timing them... not regular at all... and it lasted until 2am and I finally drifted off to sleep.. then only to be awaken by pain at 4am. Really a terrible night. But by 5am the pain was all gone... ok they must have been just those practicing "false" contractions... braxton hicks. I really don't need to practice ok? I am a pro already(being the 3rd pregnancy), so contractions, just come when it's real labor... no more practicing rehearsals for me PLEASE!! 

Jacob lost his front tooth this afternoon while watching TV with his brother. Well, actually Timothy's foot hit Jacob's tooth accidentally and knocked the loose tooth off... it was actually pretty funny thinking about it. Of course Jacob was a little scared when he saw a tooth on his clothes and ran to me crying.... I made lots of positive comments about it and wash the tooth and put it in the tooth storage thing our dentist gave him last time. I am glad this loose tooth finally came off... Timothy certainly did a good job knocking it off !! I told Jacob he should be very proud to lose another baby tooth... especially the front one... that means he is growing up ! And we can already see the new tooth coming out. Neat!

Just a quick update of my sonogram this morning:

Baby is about 7 lbs now (6 lbs 15 oz) and if I deliver near due date(in 3 weeks) she will be about the same as Jacob and Timothy . Today I had a different doctor today. He was much nicer and took longer (not in a huge rush like Dr. Graham) to check on the baby, he tried to buzz the baby but she was very stubborn she didn't want to show us her face today. She was facing downward which is the correct position to be born. The doctor said her head is very low, getting ready to be born. She was kicking the sonogram handheld device and made the doctor laugh a few times. She is measuring about a week ahead so really very healthy and well.

I guess we won't know when the induction date will be until next Monday when I go in for OB check up.

p.s. Here is a photo of the boys in our ice cream store holding the Bigtom Sign:

Well, nothing exciting is happening here.. This morning I went in for my 37th week OB visit and I was disappointed we didn't schedule an induction date. Mike wants to hear the result of my sonogram tomorrow after the baby's size is checked then he can schedule the induction date. I guess I really should take it easy... no matter what the original due date is only 3 weeks away, and after the baby is here we will all be so tired. So I really should wait patiently and enjoy the last days of just me and the 2 boys.

The baby's heart beat was 160/minute and my bp was 70/110... I didn't gain any weight since last time(10 days ago) so my weight gain has stablized which is great. Well I haven't been snacking as much recently and I am sure it helped.

I will start packing the hospital bag today... I don't want to bring too much stuff to the hospital but I want to make sure I have the things I need there during the 2 days 2 nights stay.

This morning after I came back from the OB visit, I helped both boys with phonics and math homeworks. And they did so well, finished everything I assigned in a short period of time. I am determined to continue teaching them even after Acacia comes and I will be so tired. I still want to try to do it everyday so the boys continue to learn and progress. After homework they did some crafts and watched a TV cartoon and now after lunch they are playing with toys. I told them we should do homework in the mornings from now on so the rest of the day they can do stuff they enjoy. And they like that idea.

I will update after the sonogram tomorrow. I am very curious how big Acacia is now!!

I think I want to choose the name "黃尚惟" for Acacia's Chinese name. We will call her
"
惟" and it sounds pretty sweet. "" can mean several things. First of all she is the only girl we have, and also there are some great hymns that use "惟". Like "惟見榮耀裡的基督",  "惟知道我所信的是誰"..... so it's really a good word. Still undecided about her English middle name. I like Grace but it's so common... Maybe just use Wei... we will see.

p.s. a photo of me and the boys eating at Korean restaurant:

 Yesterday was America's birthday. Happy Birthday, USA!!

Our ice cream store is open(Bigtom Premium Ice Cream). Cecilia, you are VERY welcome to come and taste our yummy ice cream!! Email me peggyhuang3140@hotmail.com  so I can give you info of the store and I will give you some good coupons to use :0) 
Here is the website of our store:
http://www.bigtomicecream.com/default.htm

Daddy has been very busy with the new store now open. After work he usually goes into the store and check if everything is going smoothly. Yesterday was July 4th and near our store was where the fireworks displayed(Fire Wheel Town center, Garland), so tons of cars filled the parking lot. We had the best sales record yesterday, and lots of people enjoyed our ice cream. We still need to make our store known to more people, because we are confident once customers taste our all natural, organic premium ice cream they will come back for more!! We as owners also have to pay when buying ice cream so we limit our visit to about once a week(because we want to set up a good example for our staff). The boys love the tropical mango flavor and I love our green tea & Strawberry flavors... SO YUMMY!!!

On America's birthday yesterday, I didn't do very well because I ate something(not sure what) in the morning and I started having stomache all day, I was so weak, having terrible pain and having to go to the restroom often. At first I thought, maybe I was in labor, but soon I realized it's my tummy that's hurting, not contractions. But I am sure Acacia didn't feel well inside either because she was kicking so hard all day. So the boys were very cooperative and they played by themselves in the living room while I spent all day in bed. At night, daddy put them to sleep around 9pm, and by 9:40pm I heard the fireworks(we thought they were cancelled because of rain), so I hurried up and told daddy let's go and see the fireworks, so daddy got the boys up from bed(they were already asleep, and Jacob said he just started his sweet dream :)) we all got into the van with our pajamas, and we drove toward our store. We did see the very last part of the fireworks and I was glad we didn't miss it totally because it only happens once a year! Daddy parked near our ice cream store and he went into the store to help since there were so many people, and he also went to pass out the coupon.flyers in the parking lot. As for us 3, we could only stay in the van because we didn't have shoes on and I was wearing a short pajama... not a pretty sight!! We had to wait for about 1 hour before daddy got back to the van to take us home. I was surely glad I didn't have to go to the restroom during that time!!!

   Last week after my OB visit I had to go to Grapevine Baylor for a sonogram check of the baby. I took the boys, picked up daddy at work and went to have a sonogram, much to our disappointment, Dr. Graham didn't do a size check(which was what I was there for), because it has only been 1+ week since he last did one. He said it has to be 3 weeks to do another size check. So he quickly looked at the baby, of course baby was all perfect and healthy in my tummy. The doctor also pointed out there is hair on baby's head!! haha. I am glad our princess is not bald.  So I made another sonogram appointment for next Monday(after my OB visit) to do a size check of the baby.

   Brother Mike is in CA attending the training. He was really worried about me and asked me if he could go to the training. I told him of course he can go, I will wait for him to come back to have the baby!! And he said, if the baby is coming, he will fly 4 hours immediately to deliver my baby. It was very sweet for him to be so caring. I am not only a patient of him, I am his sister in Christ and he really cares for us. How precious!! I am so glad this time I chose to have him as my OB. Don't know why I didn't do that with my 2 boys.
 
   So on Monday 7/10 we will set a day for induction. I can't wait to have a day set so I know when baby will come. I still haven't packed my hospital bag, In the meantime, I hope Acacia continues to grow bigger, so she will be nice and big when she enters the world. Well, maybe not as big as her brothers ... ouch!!
  
   Since daddy took today off we went to Dallas Children Museum in the morning. Daddy has never been there, and he was very surprised to see how small and "sorry" it was. Well, I told him, at least we have one in Dallas. I wish we have one like Houston's or at least Austin's. Ours is so small and so outdated... poor Dallas kids. Today the subject was about Planetarium. The boys did some outerspace crafts, listened to the story and played a little bit (also ate free moon cookies). Then we went to eat lunch then daddy went to have his haircut. I do the boys' haircut but I don't cut daddy's hair very well, of course I blame it to his weird head shape...

At night, daddy put them to sleep around 9pm, and by 9:40pm I heard the fireworks(we thought they were cancelled because of rain), so I hurried up and told daddy let's go and see the fireworks, so daddy got the boys up from bed(they were already asleep, and Jacob said he just started his sweet dream :)) we all got into the van with our pajamas, and we drove toward our store. We did see the very last part of the fireworks and I was glad we didn't miss it totally because it only happens once a year! Daddy parked near our ice cream store and he went into the store to help since there were so many people, and he also went to pass out the coupon.flyers in the parking lot. As for us 3, we could only stay in the van because we didn't have shoes on and I was wearing a short pajama... not a pretty sight!! We had to wait for about 1 hour before daddy got back to the van to take us home. I was surely glad I didn't have to go to the restroom during that time!!!

   Last week after my OB visit I had to go to Grapevine Baylor for a sonogram check of the baby. I took the boys, picked up daddy at work and went to have a sonogram, much to our disappointment, Dr. Graham didn't do a size check(which was what I was there for), because it has only been 1+ week since he last did one. He said it has to be 3 weeks to do another size check. So he quickly looked at the baby, of course baby was all perfect and healthy in my tummy. The doctor also pointed out there is hair on baby's head!! haha. I am glad our princess is not bald.  So I made another sonogram appointment for next Monday(after my OB visit) to do a size check of the baby.

   Brother Mike is in CA attending the training. He was really worried about me and asked me if he could go to the training. I told him of course he can go, I will wait for him to come back to have the baby!! And he said, if the baby is coming, he will fly 4 hours immediately to deliver my baby. It was very sweet for him to be so caring. I am not only a patient of him, I am his sister in Christ and he really cares for us. How precious!! I am so glad this time I chose to have him as my OB. Don't know why I didn't do that with my 2 boys.
 
   So on Monday 7/10 we will set a day for induction. I can't wait to have a day set so I know when baby will come. I still haven't packed my hospital bag, In the meantime, I hope Acacia continues to grow bigger, so she will be nice and big when she enters the world. Well, maybe not as big as her brothers ... ouch!!
  
   Since daddy took today off we went to Dallas Children Museum in the morning. Daddy has never been there, and he was very surprised to see how small and "sorry" it was. Well, I told him, at least we have one in Dallas. I wish we have one like Houston's or at least Austin's. Ours is so small and so outdated... poor Dallas kids. Today the subject was about Planetarium. The boys did some outerspace crafts, listened to the story and played a little bit (also ate free moon cookies). Then we went to eat lunch then daddy went to have his haircut. I do the boys' haircut but I don't cut daddy's hair very well, of course I blame it to his weird head shape...
