I’m at 38 weeks today. Getting achier as the baby grows and settles into position. She’s very low. We have doctor appointments at least two to three times a week now because of how tiny she is. But then again, I’m also a petite Asian woman. I’m pretty sure she’ll be just fine.
So as I wait for my little one and try to keep my health up, sometimes comfort food is all I need. I made an easy chicken congee with some salted soy beans, cilantro and green onion toppings. Sprinkle with a little pepper and I’ve got one simple yet tasty meal.
I haven’t been able to work on this blog in a long time. Due to the fact that my husband and I are finally starting a family and we are just about 30 weeks in. Everything has been good health-wise and we are so thrilled to welcome our baby girl come October. It’s been pretty busy otherwise, but I wanted to just post up a photo that I took last weekend of my sister and her daughter. My niece, who turned 13 earlier this month, has grown taller than me! I remember taking care of her as a newborn while my sister went to class during the day at the University of Washington.
It’s been awhile since I’ve had to take care of a baby, but hopefully it will all come back to me. I’m excited for what is to come as our new life begins.
