Celebrating The Gift of Life

Now that the due date is drawing close, we are playing the waiting game. I’m getting more and more anxious, especially when my friend, whose due date is a week after mine, has already delivered 2 nights ago. Then again, it was because there were slight complications. Compared to her, my pregnancy is a breeze and I thank God for that.

I’ve also been having a number of tummy cramps every night. The worst of it was on early Monday morning  – kept me up for most of the nights. I was getting worried until I managed to fall back to sleep at about 5am, realizing that Baby Tarn isn’t ready to greet the world just yet.

This is the latest picture we have of Baby Tarn, taken yesterday. I’m glad all is well, even after the night’s disturbance.

We also celebrated daddy’s birthday last night with something different. We decided to go Chinese and had mee sua and longevity buns.

Of course there is also the usual vegetables, a daily affair in our family meals. Daddy’s birthday is today but he’ll be caught up with work. So mom worked hard in the kitchen yesterday to prepare this delicious and surprisingly filling dinner for us. Surprising because we usually have rice for dinner. So I thought noodles wouldn’t be so filling. Turns out I was wrong.

Mom has also been cleaning up baby’s room and wiping down the baby bed, clearing some space for baby’s clothes and sheets etc. I guess as the date draws nearer, everyone gets more excited. 🙂

Our furkid of course wasn’t ignored throughout all the excitement. He even had a lot of treats to eat during daddy’s birthday dinner!

Since I started my maternity leave and have been working from home, furkid and I have been spending a lot of time together. I just hope he won’t feel too left out for the first month or so when baby Tarn arrives. Good thing hubby will be around to help out. 🙂
