Feel The Love

Manic Monday reflection – what makes you feel loved?

At first, the posted question sounded easy, and I knew it would be easy for me to answer. Although as I pondered my answer through it, there are just too many levels, ways and people that make me feel loved.

But then there is this one person who emerges in my thoughts, and to whom I am extremely grateful for making me feel most loved, my husband. Ever since we were boyfriends-girlfriends, I appreciate how much he is attuned with my needs — as a woman, as a person, and as his partner. He understands my need for his full attention to the present; my need for an embrace in replacement of more word battle; my need for an open communication line and my need for little dates from time to time.

My (more than) Top 5 Occasions That Call for Food Delivery

Food has always been a special part of my childhood, adulthood, now preggy-hood — that’s basically my whole life existence. Growing up at home with my family, preparing food seemed like a breeze because mom was always there to cook it for you. Ever since I started living independently, I managed to 1) learn few dishes I now call my “signature” dishes and 2) learn to cook for two.

With a hectic and active lifestyle as a pregnant career woman and work-at-home-mom (to be), it’s not always an enticing idea to do grocery or market-shopping much more so to cook. That’s when food delivery comes in as heaven-sent!

Here are my top 8 occasions that call for food delivery:

Diary Entry | 8 October 2015

First time I unintentionally skipped my milk and prenatal vitamins. I ran out of stock and we were on a whole day meeting. Hope baby’s still ok for missing his needs for a day. #ALittleWorried

baby’s size:

Croquembouche

my mood:

My mood is generally bearable. Nothing out of the ordinary. I can say this week was light on me, on us, which is a breath of fresh air.

my symptoms:

Tender breasts. I hope this means I can produce tons of milk when baby’s out!

Numbness / tingling. Becoming a common symptom especially in the morning.

Leg cramps. This annoying symptom is becoming a regular every morning. One time my subconscious even know that I will feel the cramps so I immediately know what to do even if I just woke up.

Backaches. Sometimes I cannot bear the pain but in a few weeks time I know it will all be worth it.

Swelling. Elevating feet really helps.

Braxton Hicks Contractions. I was a little worried at first, but I’m learning to ride the “wave”.

Shortness of breath.

Dizziness. Very minimal, maybe because of the hot weather.
