We hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving! We were thankful to have an amazing thanksgiving with our family, feasting on lots of yummy food and enjoying family time! so yummy!


After thanksgiving, we took our second trip to Big Bear with my husband and puppies! It was super nice to relax while he skied. we did plenty of eating AND sleeping! it was much needed.

Gobble Gobble my little fat turkey is Happy TODAY!

video

So we went in to get some blood worked up, and while we were sitting there... Freddy our amazing Dr's Assistant said, "you guys have time to have an ultrasound?"

silly little question. so here we are... poking around and the doctor says, "lets see if we can hear the heart beat.. " Last week we only saw its little heart fluttering.. but this time, we heard it and it made everything seem so REAL. And when I started asking questions about the baby.. the heartbeat went faster and stronger!! it was cute when the doc said, "look.. baby can hear you. its all excited when you talk".

such a happy time for us!

happy early thanksgiving!

Highlight of my weekend...

Happy One week of finding out we're expecting!!!

SInce we found out that we're expecting, we've been slowly telling people. Most people are SUPER excited for us which makes me happy!

This weekend, I ventured out for the first time, we celebrated Vrey's Big 28!! Here are some photos of the girls out!






Lets see.. Some noticeable changes...

I had my first baby dream... I dreamt that I had a baby and after a few days, I realized that the hospital sent me home with the wrong baby... So i removed the baby (with the car-seat), left Him (yes, in my dream it was a boy) on the trunk of my car and went shopping. I do remember calling my husband to tell him that we had the wrong baby and I didn't want it anymore. when I returned from Nordstrom with tons of Shopping bags... the baby was gone. Someone had taken the baby and left their 2-3 year old sitting on my trunk. He called me Mama and tried to hold my hand. I believe I left it sitting at the bus stop and went home.

I woke up feeling like a terrible person. I do believe that I had this dream because I've been helping my girlfriend date online. I spent a good hour letting people down and I think because of it, I rejected my baby. oops. I will now answer emails in the morning.

cravings: rice, sauteed spinach, salted olives.. mexican candy.. tamarind.. salty plums and water (I'm thirsty ALL Day long). I do prefer ice water with a straw instead of cold water bottles.

How do our dogs react??? ummm just look at this photo:


yes, theres a slight bump. I can't figure out if it's a "baby bump" or if I'm just getting chubby. Today at the Salty plum store, the baby wished that my baby is "healthy, strong, and that he will do well in school and become successful in life" It made me very happy to hear it!!

Baby Gender Predictor

According to the Chinese Gender Pregnancy Calendar, We'll be expecting a boy. lol.

We calculated my Age and the Month of conception, the site says they're 90% accurate so lets see what happens in the next few months! Whatever God decides to bless us with, we'll be happy!!



Currently, I've gained about 2 lbs since my first visit in October... On average, I'm about 110 lbs. We will start a walking around the lake for exercise but all I want to do is sleep. I get excited when 9 pm rolls around so I can get to bed and I'm up around 7am.

Looks Like My +1 is now a +2.


Well.. Looks like we did it!

We were not expecting this. At all!! Actually, we made the effort to Prepare us to Concieve. On Oct. 20th we went to interview an OBGYN. She suggested we start "Enjoying" the process and told me not to come back until January. Little did I know, we were already pregnant.

SoooOOoo last friday, at Katsuya we enjoyed about $300 worth of sushi and a cocktail. I'm pretty sure I've already poisoned the little jelly bean growing in my belly.. but I was starving and almost dying for sushi. luckily its the last Sushi I'll have for the next 8 months... luckily it was the best meal ever!!

Now we should've known I was pregnant when I ordered 4 appetizers, 2 rolls, a couple of Robatas and dessert.. all for myself.

following dinner, on saturday at BJ's I ate a salad, a mini pizza, a plate of chicken wings and a pazookie.. starved. The waitress even asked if I was eating for 2...

On sunday i woke up and felt queasy. Josh went to get breakfast and came home with a pregnancy test...

Test 1. pregnant.
Test 2. Pregnant



so looks like we're having a baby!!

If you're wondering.. My husband is SOooOoo Excited he tried to buy a crib on sunday morning.. instead I let him call everyone to announce that he's a daddy to be. we spent the entire day telling immediate family!

During our first ultrasound I met my new doctor (He requested to be my OBGYN because he's an experts for mommies like me!) How can I pass on a doctor who's begging me to be his patient! After one meeting with him, we both agreed that he is the best doctor for our little baby!


Our little Jelly bean is 5 weeks 4 days old!
