Week 23 and Mother’s Day!


Hello hello! Happy Mother’s Day to all of the wonderful mothers, expectant mothers, and mother figures out there. Happy Mother’s Day especially to my own momma, who has always been there for me, supporting me in every way, and showing me the power of a mother’s love. As I grew up, I often heard my mom tell me that I would “understand when I become a mother one day.” She is so right! I am still only an expectant mother and haven’t yet entered parenthood, but already that mother’s love resonates deep within me in ways I never could have imagined. I love my boys so much already it really does hurt.

2013-05-12 Week 23

We’ve reached yet another week and we couldn’t be more grateful. We’ve been on a roller coaster the past two weeks, but here we are, chugging along! We are proud to report that the boys are estimated to each be about 1.2 lbs each! I’ve been feeling more and more movement from the babies. It’s a lot of fun when they let me know they are awake and active. Even though I already know they are constantly moving and I won’t always feel their every movement this early, it’s so much fun when I do feel them. The hubs felt one of the babies for the first time last week! He was so excited and also surprised at how it felt. It was such a miraculous moment to share with him.

Some other random updates… sleep is getting tougher, especially with waking up 1-2 times a night. I am glad that I am able to fall back asleep, but my body can definitely feel the different a straight 8 hours of sleep makes compared with 8 choppy hours. That REM cycle really is something! I bought a Snoogle a few days ago and I must say it is quite… interesting. I find myself going to sleep using it and then after waking up in the middle of the night, I toss it aside and grab my three pillows and make my own fort instead =P I think it’ll just take some getting used to. Check out all these ways you can use the Snoogle!


My sister drove me around the other day to get some errands done. Thanks, Sis!!! We went to my check-up appointment, the grocery store, dry cleaners, Panda Express, and Starbucks. Look how happy I was when she brought me to SBUX to redeem my FREE drink! Being a gold card member rocks.ย I tried the new caramel ribbon crunch frappuccino (decaf!). It was good, but was also a caramel overload. I shouldn’t complain though because SBUX certainly has the BEST CARAMEL EVER!


Well, that’s all for now, folks. As always, thanks for reading! ๐Ÿ™‚


It’s your turn…

Fellow Starbucks addicts, what’s YOUR all-time favorite drink?

Do you sleep with a ton of pillows? Just one? Are they big, firm, fluffy, or flat?ย

    After pregnacy with the girls i now need 3 pillows to sleep, 1 for between the legs, 2for head:)

    Happy Mother’s Day!! I remember the one when I was pregnant with Ari was the most emotional…all in a good way, i totally get the “Love so bad it hurts”

    Much Love to you and Jing!


  3. Happy Mother’s Day!!! Hope Jing showered you a lot today. ๐Ÿ™‚

    When I was pregnant, I used the snoogle too! It’s so comfy but it takes up a lot of space! But fortunately you guys have a huge bed! ;P


    • Thanks and same to you! Haha – yes, we do have a big bed, but I think what bugs me about the snoogle is that I move around so much and the pillow is so big that it doesn’t move with you very easily lol… I hate all the adjusting I have to do if I wanna change positions!


  4. So many drinks to choose from. Top 3: Iced soy green tea latte, caramel macchiato -extra caramel (iced in summer/ hot in winter), and caramel frap! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I sleep with 2 pillows now. One for my head and the other between my legs/to snuggle with. During pregnancy, I loved my snoogle!


  5. I snoogled too! And I agree, it takes a lot of room! You’re soooo funny about tossing it aside after moving around so much! LOL I did the same thing! Rich didn’t like it much because he said it was like a wall and was blocking him haha. and if I can remember, you’re only supposed to sleep on your left side when you get to certain number of weeks? I think its your left side?


I'd love to hear from you!
