Our Baby Is Full Term

If you are pregnant 37weeks, your baby is safe. He is full term now. This means that if your baby arrives now, his lungs should be fully mature and ready to adjust to life outside the womb, even though your due date is still three weeks away. Doctor checked that our baby weighs 2.8-2.9kgs. Good weights.

These few days, I face more and more difficult in sleeping, couldn’t find comfortable position. Last night I was thinking, after give birth I will lose my big tummy, at least I will sleep better. Yeah! But suddenly I remember that many mommies say that they need to feed the baby every 2-3hours whole day. Huh? How can I have a good sleep then…

Oh, maybe it is worse than sleep with a big tummy. So I better enjoy my sleeping time now.

Awesome Fat Loss Site!

It has been a year that I didn’t meet my friend, who moved back to her hometown. Last month she backed here to visit us. She looked different, put on a lot of weights. When we asked about her job, she said “Good! Every time go out to entertain customers”. Oh! Now we know why she put on a lot of weights. She works as a marketer for her company. Entertain means eat and eat.

Fat loss is a huge problem. Here are some little known facts about fat loss:


You cannot lose weight by simply starving yourself on a “low calorie diet plan.” In fact, eating a low amount of calories is terrible for your body.


They are too hard to follow for the average person, unhealthy and leave you feeling drained.

-Low Fat Foods JUST DON’T WORK.

Low fat diets alone are not enough to get rid of your growing belly and love handles.

-Weight Watchers & Jenny Craig Diet Plans Take Too Long.

These programs can in fact be effective, but the strategies they use to help you lose weight take, FOREVER. These programs require special meal plans that you must have in order to succeed. But once you are off the program, you will no longer have these special meals and be left again to fend for yourself.

I found a site that gives us a simple diet and idiot proof. is better than Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig diet plan because of its fat burning diet generator and it comes with the ultimate diet handbook. You will easily and healthily lose up to 10pounds every 7days!

How refreshing it is to find a diet that will help you lose weight and help you fix chronic illnesses like diabetes, adrenal fatigue, hormonal problems, etc.

Black Friday Shopping Information

What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving in the United States. This year Black Friday will fall on Friday, November 28, 2008.

Black Friday is traditionally (and mistakenly) referred to as the largest “brick and mortar” (physical locations only) retail sales day of the year. Most don’t realize that the day is also one of the largest online retail sales days too! Although hitting the stores on foot on Friday might be fun and adventurous, it can also cause headaches, especially if you miss out on a deal! It’s also impossible to visit all the stores that you want to before the good deals are gone. I still remember a brother of mine; he went out early morning about 3.00a.m with his friends to queue before the store open.

But now, you need not to worry about queuing in a very early morning, because I want to share with you about
From this website you can see a complete list of all black friday ad scans for 2008. You will be shown the pdf or zip files of the black Friday advertisements before you get them in your local newspaper. The numbers to the right of the store name are the date the black Friday advertisement was posted on this site. If there is not a date for the store you are interested in, that means the black Friday ad has not been posted yet.

It’s a good way to save my money when I plan my Christmas shopping through I can save a trip to the store on one the busiest shopping days. One more advantage is they offer email alerts to let you know when new black Friday ads have been posted. They try to make it a consumer friendly site that is useful for planning our holiday shopping.

Active Baby Is Healthy Baby

I just wanted to share about last Friday check up.
Everything was fine. The most important thing is baby moves actively. Many people complain they couldn’t sleep because the baby moves a lot and kicks very hard. But for me, I prefer the baby active inside me, even kicks me harder until I couldn't sleep, I won’t mind. Doctor said baby moves actively is a good news, good sign, means the baby is healthy.

Thank God that He protects me and the baby until this far. Thank God that He gave me a very caring husband too. ("Thank you Joseph for being a good husband and I'm sure you will become a very good father to our son")

Time goes very fast, I’m pregnant 37weeks now. Another 3 weeks more, we’ll be able to carry the little new creation. The estimate due date is September 15, 2008.

Doctor asked me to come back for check up next 2weeks. What I need to do now is keep monitoring the baby's movements. If notice a decrease, I must go to the hospital and check. Don’t wait until it has no movement. Any contraction between 5-10minutes, i might go to hospital too.

3Weeks more?? Please pray for me.

Next, keeping it healthy and simple, the dish’s ingredients had to represent all five food groups and be a dish that even the most harried home chefs could prepare.

I Can't Sleep Well

I wake up around 5.00am every day since I reached my third trimester of pregnancy. I cannot sleep well. I think because of my big tummy, so it’s not comfortable while sleeping.

Today, I’m so excited, because I’m going to see the doctor in a few hours later. Joseph and I will see our baby again through the ultrasound. But not sure whether still can see the baby through it, because the baby almost occupies the whole tummy. I’m 36weeks plus now.

Wondering what the doctor will say about the baby progression, and will take some advices from him.

Here are my latest photos. Have a great day!

A Penny A day


Although we have only single income, but we have no worry about it. Not because of my husband is a rich man or has a big salary. But it’s about how he manages the money and spends the money wisely. Every month he takes 10percent of his salary and put at one account called account for emergency needs. We can never take out or touch this money. Although our saving is become lesser, we will not take out the money from the emergency account. What we need to do is try to spend less, don’t buy anything that you think it’s not needed, and pay your bills and debt on time. I hate paying late fees!

Anyways, it’s a good idea to visit website such as Bills IQ, which not only helps keep you financially on track but also provides resources on how you can improve your financial health.

While you’re there, check out how they can provide you with any Debt consolidation or Debt relief advice. It’s never too late to seek Debt help.

Being able to Consolidate debt or seek Credit counseling could be your first step to make your life less stressful and your future more secure.


Wanna Have A Cute Baby?

A friend of mine sent me babies’ photo yesterday. It reminds me when I just knew that I’m pregnant, I did search a lot of babies’ photo. I heard many people said, “You must see cute cute baby more often, and you will have a cute baby”.

I started searching babies’ photo from the internet and I saved a few of it. I picked the cutest baby and I set it as my laptop background. So I will see it more often whenever I start my laptop.

Recently I notice that last time I had a feeling to picked one of the photo which gender is accidently boy as my laptop background, and I’m pregnant a baby boy right now! And one of my friends who is pregnant too picked a baby girl photo, and she’s pregnant a princess!

Anyhow I collect those photos are not because I believe what people say, but I just like them.

So, these are the photos sent by my friend.

Will you choose one for your "idol"? Hahaha...

Wash Baby Outfits

Few days ago, I went out to buy baby clothes. Buy few pairs new born size and 3-6months size. My friends remind me not to buy many clothes for new born, because baby grows very fast and after 1-2weeks, maybe he can not wear it anymore. Instead of 3-6 months size, I bought 6-12months too. In fact, I bought 1year age size, because they are cute and cheap. But remember to control your eyes or you will spend more money in your baby clothes.

Thanks to my friends for gave me their used baby clothes and many new things too, such as diaper, baby blanket, baby bath tub, milk bottles, pacifiers, baby cot, etc. So, I can save more money and spend it for other baby stuffs.

I start wash anything that will go near to our baby’s skin to remove any irritant in the fabrics. Remember to use the gentlest detergents, which are designed for babies and those that are labeled hypoallergenic or good for sensitive skin.

Take Your Ring Off

Since I get pregnant, I join a baby centre club. Baby Centre is all about creating a personal experience for you. Start by answering a few simple questions and you'll see the site change to reflect your stage weekly.

I still remember when I was 22weeks pregnant; they sent me news about my baby growth and few things to do for that week. They said that it’s common to have some swelling in your fingers as your pregnancy progresses. If your rings are feeling the least bit snug, do yourself a favor and take them off.

At that week, I saw my finger, they’re still looked normal. I thought I will keep an eye on them. After 1week, I got up in the morning and felt my hands and fingers were painful, I saw my finger swelled. I was shocked, because I almost couldn’t take my wedding ring out. I thought my finger would get swell gradually. But it didn’t happen that way.

So, do remember if you reach 22weeks pregnant, if your fingers still look normal, I think better you take your ring off before it’s too late. If you can’t bear to be separated from your wedding band or another important ring, you can loop it on a chain and wear it close to your heart.

We Move In To Our New Place

Today, we officially move in to our new house. We are so happy!

Actually few days ago, we‘ve spent few nights here, but we felt something was missing. There was no internet. We can’t live without it.

Today, the internet at our new place is activated. Joseph needs it to check his important email and update news, and I need it to run my “business”, blogging, etc. So, from today onward, we’ll stay here.
