My Pregnancy 29 ~ 32 weeks

29 weeks of pregnancy 
29 weeks: I continuously try to exercise as much as possible.

30 weeks: Nothing dramatically happened.
Just prenatal visits became once in two weeks.
And the ob/gym told me my baby might not be in the head-down-position yet.
 She assured me that it's not a problem at all now, since the baby still has more room to flip over quite a lot.

31 weeks: Baby's movements  hurt me, since he is big and there is not much  fluid to compensate his kicks and punches. I can only guess it's going to be stronger as he gets bigger.

32 weeks of pregnancy
32 weeks: I found out that he tends to move in my right side of body. He often kicks on my right side of ribs that hurts so much. But this is a happy pain :)
I went to the prenatal visits and ob/gym told me that he is now in a right position.
She told me I'm doing really really great and having a healthy pregnancy.

My husband and I went to a hospital tour for labor preparation. I will go labor in Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborn. The building is being renewed and it looks really clean and new.
I feel like I would be comfortable giving birth to my baby there.

Our baby shower!!

I had so much fun at our baby shower.
My husband and I are blessed to have such wonderful friends and families.

Within this month I gained 2.5 pounds, and overall I've gained about 19 pounds so far.

**They say last two months, baby will get double the size.
I'm so excited to experience my baby grow at the same time, I'm kind of scared to get my tummy bigger since it's already pretty big and I cannot imagine it to be

The sides of the band stretches so it can hold a large stack of cash and cards.

But at the same time, since the rubber springs back, it secures the stack.

My baby dog got neutered...

We took him to a vet yesterday to get him neutered.

Last night, it was so painful to see him druggy and tired...
He couldn't walk nor stand for more than a minute..
He vomited more than 5 times throughout the night.
I was little bit worried, but found out that is the one of the side effects of anesthesia.

In this morning, I tried to feed him regular puppy food, but he couldn't chew them.
So I softened them with water, and he finally started eating them.... little by little though.

Now, after almost a day since he got neutered, he looks better.
I hope he will get better soon.
He has to wear this Elizabeth collar for 2 weeks, I have no doubt that he will become hating it as soon as he gets better....

I'm glad there was nothing bad happened during the operation, and he is getting better so far.
